The Best of British Vol.1

union_jack.jpg

Oi, right, like, this week, we go all Brit-ish and decided to look at 3 sitcoms, that would by and large, be considered as unknown. We look at HANCOCKS HALF HOUR, ON THE BUSES and LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR.

With Stu very familiar with all of these shows, it was interesting to get a view of them, from an American perspective, on these 3 shows, from a different time, where political correctness did not exist, thank goodness. 

Anyway, here are the links as to where you can buy these collections.

The Tony Hancock Collection can be found on PAL DVD HERE

On the Buses can be found on PAL DVD HERE

On the Buses can be found on NTSC (R1) DVD HERE

Love Thy Neighbour can be found on PAL DVD HERE

Enjoy

See ya next week

Metallica: Hardwired… To Self-Destruct

hw.jpeg

After 8 years, Metallica finally decided to be produtive, and released some new music. Since the MMC are Metallica fans (minus John who is not, and decided to sit this week out) we decided to review the new album, track by track, with the help of one of our listeners, and mega Metallica fan - Trinity Martin.

For the record, no, this not a Rock Month episode - it's not June, so it can't be. However we did wanna mix things up a bit this week. 

Anyway, relax, sit back and make your own mosh pit as we dive into all things Metallica.

See ya next wek.

The Blob (1958)

hhthe-blob-1958.jpg

Beware of the blob, it creeps, and leaps, and glides and slides across the floor.... you know the song, you most likely know the film also. A 28 year old Steve McQueen, trying to pass as a 17 year old kid, cheap effects etc etc. 

This week, we look at with fond (and some not so fond) memories of THE BLOB.

So sit back, grab some Popcorn, and a Soda, and listen as we talk all about THE BLOB (and a side tangent or 2).

See ya next week

Midnight Movie Gameboys: Metal Gear Solid

MGShowart.jpg 

 

Last week, we were eagerly awaiting the coming of God Emperor Trump on the show, so naturally you would think this episode would be a victory lap. Sadly, John and Stu couldn't make it, so Hunter and Garo got together to do a show we wanted to do last year before Garo fell ill with cancer. Since John and Stu hate video games, doing a side show with Hunter and Garo talking games has been on the burner for awhile. So, here is the premiere episode of the Midnight Movie Gameboys, where we talk about Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, as well as the Metal Gear series in general. Let us know what you think, and if you want more shows like this. Enjoy, and MAGA!

Weiner

weiner_rtr.jpg

This week, we take a look at the 2016 documentary on Carlos Danger himself - Anthony Weiner.

It tells the tale of Weiner, and his time on the comeback trail, in the race for the Mayor of New York, however, certain circumstances, see Weiner and his campaign, go horribly wrong. Poor Carlos.

Also, with the U.S election a mere day or two away, we chime in with our thoughts, rants and cautionary warnings.

This episode is strictly NSFW and NSFL (Not safe for Liberals)

The future is in your hands America
Vote Wisely.

So turn the lights down low, pop some popcorn, and listen on with us.

Happy Halloween

Godzilla 1984 (aka The Return of Godzilla)

MMCGodzillaReturn.jpeg

This week, John and Hunter were planning on reviewing the latest Godzilla movie, Shin Godzilla, however we waited too long to get tickets and we thought it looked dull anyway. So instead, we discuss Godzilla 1984, also known as The Return of Godzilla. The Japanese version finally got a region 1 release on Blu-ray from Kraken, so revisiting it made for an interesting discussion.

You've heard mention of it over the last 2 years, and FINALLY it is here. Yes, that's right, ourselves, along with the return of Garo Nigoghossian (AKA Genocidehead) discuss the latest Rob Zombie attempt - 31.
There are no pre-review tangents this week, we dive straight into the film, as we know you are all anxious to know what we think of it, There is just way too much to say on it.
Anyway, a word of warning, this episode is absolutely NSFW, and may just offend somebody out there, consider this your trigger warning, snowflakes.

EAR/ONS II

east_area_rapist.jpg

Hey gang, this week, we return to the mysterious case of EAR/ONS. For those of you familiar with our episode from a couple of years ago that we did, the first EAR/ONS episode
We delved into the strange tale of EAR/ONS with filmmaker, and friend of the show Cameron Cloutier, who was /still is in the process of getting his film, about the last victim, Janelle Lisa Cruz, made.
This time around, the MMC have gone one step further. We go even deeper into the mysterious individual known as EAR/ONS, with the one man, who is considered the best source of knowledge on the case - Author Gian Quasar, PLUS we are also joined by Janelle Lisa Cruz's sister - Michelle Cruz.

Please note, there is zero film talk on this episode. It is solely about this still unsolved case. The content is very heavy, but the subject itself is not for the faint of heart.

Don't listen to this one alone, or with the lights out, this seriously is some scary stuff, and unfortunately, it is all real.

We cannot thank our guests enough for their time, and lending us their stories and the information that they have. Please follow the links below, and reach out to them, and go get yourself a whole lot more information on this bizarre tale.

The FBI's official page on EAR/ONS


Gian Quasar's fantastic website, not just about EAR/ONS, but many other things.


Go visit Michelle's facebook page, about her sister Janelle.

Jaws 2

donna_wilkes_2.jpg

A Shaaarrkkkk!!!!! Hey gang, back this week, with a film, that is a bit more mainstream than what we usually cover - JAWS 2.

While not quite the classic that its' predecessor JAWS was, in terms of quality, this one still did well at the box office, so we thought we'd talk about it this week, and see if it still holds up.

So grab your surfboard, or pull up a beach chair and listen on. And, oh, if you have tits like a sparrow, better bring some padding for that bikini.

Enjoy.

Going Clear

going-clear_02.jpg

Hey all, this week, the MMC go clear, with GOING CLEAR. Alex Gibney's documentary was groundbreaking as an expose on the Church of Scientology, and we talk all about it, with a few tangents on the side, as usual.

Grab your e-meters, and hold on tight. By the words of Xenu - Listen to the Midnight Movie Cowboys!!!!!

Free for All

caution-rant.jpg

You know what we got here? We got ourselves a damn free for all!! That's right, this week, there is no film covered, it is all a freeform conversation, which lead into something we are the masters at - Rants.

As this was a last minute thing we decided to just roll with it, and see where it lead us, here is how it turned out.

Fear not, we will be back next week with a film we have in mind, it should be a good 'un also.

This week, the MMC looks at a sequel to a documentary we covered a few years ago - Pumping Iron.


Yes, that's right, John and Stuart look at the female side of Bodybuilding with PUMPING IRON II - The Women.

As mentioned, this film is an oddity, much like Bodybuilding itself, but we love the sport of Bodybuilding, and this certainly is one we needed to cover.

What were our thoughts on it? Listen on and find out. 

Enjoy.

You can watch this, long unavailable documentary in FULL here on youtube.

Hey, what's going on MMC? This is the second recent film within a month you guys have covered, you guys selling out?

So how did it all pan out? Well you are going to have to listen on and find out.

The Manchurian Candidate

manchurian-candidate.jpg

The Midnight Movie Cowboys are the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human beings I've ever known in my life.

Hey all, we're back after a week off. This time we look at the 1962 Frank Sinatra classic - The Manchurian Candidate. What with the U.S election at full steam ahead, it seemed only fitting to tackle this one.

As usual, there is the odd tangent in there, those familiar with the show will know how we roll.

Anyway, grab yourself a pack of cards, play a game of solitaire & sit down with us and listen. Oh, and you draw the Queen of diamonds, you must immediately head to itunes and leave us a glowing 5 star review - got it?

Enjoy.

Halloween III: Season of the Witch

h3.jpg

6 more days til Halloween.... 3 more days til Halloween....1 more day til Halloween etc. etc. Know the jingle? Then you will be very familiar with our episode for this week. We look at one of the most polarising horror films, not just in a franchise, but in general - Halloween III: Season of the Witch,

This week, Hunter and Stu, in John's absence and his disdain for horror films, look at one of their favourite films in the very uneven, Halloween series - Halloween III.

Did we like it? Why did this film fail? How awesome is Tom Atkins? And just how hot is Stacey Nelkin? We pose the questions, and we may have the answers.

Anyway, put on your masks (you know we just had to say that) and tune in with us, don't worry, you'll be guaranteed not to die a death of bugs and snakes if you do.

See ya next week

The Legend of Tarzan

legend_of_tarzan_10149-10189rv2.jpg
This week, John and Hunter do a rare episode that actually covers a new movie that is in theaters right now! We must be losing our edge! In the MMC tradition of covering the great heroes of the past on screen, we watched at the latest Tarzan adventure, The Legend of Tarzan, starring Alexander Skarsgård, Samuel L. Jackson, Margot Robbie, and Christoph Waltz. The movie was co-written by Craig Brewer, who did awesome movies like The Poor & Hungry and Hustle & Flow, and was directed by David Yates, who did those terrible Harry Potter movies. So what did we think? How does it stack up against other Tarzan movies? Does it adequately honor the source material? Listen to find out!

As usual, be sure to rate & review us on iTunes if you enjoy the show, it really helps!

We talk about how it paved the way for the modern blockbuster, and of course, there are a lot of tangents along the way.

Rock Month: Y&T

y_t.jpg

We're over the halfway line, and into week 3 of Rock Month. This week, it's John's pick, and he has thrust upon us all, the fantastically underrated band Y&T.
We look at their catalogue from their first album, all the way into the mid 80's. An excellent body of work (for the most part) by one of the hardest working, and nicest bunch of guys (as has been echoed by just about every person) on the planet.

Sit back, dig in and enjoy the awesomeness that is Y&T.

We'll be back next week, with the final episode of Rock Month for this year, all ready to go for ya.

Cheers.

Rock Month: The Misfits

misfitsMMC.jpg

It's June, that can only mean one thing here over at the MMC - Rock Month!!! And, to kick off Rock Month this year, we have a band, whose logo is far more well known than their music - The Misfits.

See we here at the MMC, are actually fans of The Misfits, we just don't think that the Crimson Ghost looks good on a t-shirt, no we actually like their music - A LOT.

So listen in as we go over their catalogue in the Glenn Danzig era (the only true Misfits era in our eyes and ears). We do however, glaze over the other Misfits releases post Danzig, with very mixed feelings.

So sit back, pop your hair into a devilock, grab some brains to munch on and enjoy.... or we'll send some whores to your house.

John also discusses seeing the movie at the Alamo Drafthouse with James Ellroy, and Hunter goes on various tangents, including shootings at concerts. Next week, strap in, because we'll be kicking off our second annual Rock Month!

Magnum Force

maxresdefault.jpg

After quite a while from when we covered DIRTY HARRY, we finally get onto it's first sequel MAGNUM FORCE.

With this one we discuss the film and how it feels somewhat like an apology, for the unapologetic character of Harry Callahan.

Whilst we do stick to reviewing the film, we do go off on some little tangents (nothing as drastic as last weeks show), but then again, it wouldn't be an MMC episode without a tangent or three, right?

Also, please listen for more info on the status of our youtube channel

Enjoy.

The (Not So) Brides of Dracula

Brides.jpg

What's up gang? We're back with a new episode this week, however, the film we cover THE BRIDES OF DRACULA is really only like a mini review of about 15 minutes contained within the episode.

The rest of this episode is us riffing on a ton of stuff that is going on. We apologise if you were looking a full comprehensive review of this flick, unfortunately we weren't too enamoured with this film, and struggled to provide a full length conversation on it.

However as stated, we do talk about a bunch of other stuff, some of it will be deemed offensive to thin skinned social justice warriors, but what the hey? That's the way it goes.

Anyway, we'll back next week with another episode, and we promise, a more in depth review of the film we cover, for now though, enjoy us just shooting the breeze (mostly).
See ya next week.

The Twilight Zone - Volume 1

serlingrod.jpg

This week the guys (well 2 of them, Hunter is missing on this one) go back in time and discuss 2 episodes of the magnificent, unparalleled classic television show The Twilight Zone. 

We discuss the episodes STATIC and also ESCAPE CLAUSE. We also talk about when times were much simpler, and how at times, we wish we could back to that life of simplicity.

So sit back, and take this journey into another dimension, back to a time when television was actually worth watching.

Enjoy
See ya next week.
