The Manchurian Candidate

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

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

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!

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

This week, John and Hunter look back at Kerry Conran's influential-yet-overlooked retro masterpiece, Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, starring Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Angelina Jolie. We talk about how it paved the way for the modern blockbuster, and of course, there are a lot of tangents along the way.
