Rock Month: Glenn Hughes



Hey friends, here we are again, with Week 2 of Rock Month. This week, it is Hunter's pick and he has chosen, an artist who has been ubiquitous for decades, in not just the Hard Rock / Heavy Rock scene, but has also daringly branched out into the Soul / Funk arena. He is the one, the only - Glenn Hughes.

Now, to a lot of you, his name may be unfamiliar, but those of us, with a penchant for 70's rock (and beyond) will most definitely know, and revere the name Glenn Hughes, as 'The Voice of Rock'

So, sit back friends, and get yourself a crash course, on one of the most unique, and influential musicians of all time.


See ya next week

The Mentors: Kings of Sleaze



Hey all you sluts and sissies out there, are you ready for 4 righteous hours of The Mentors and The Midnight Movie Cowboys? Well, here it is.

On this epic episode (our longest one ever), we discuss the finished, but (as yet) unreleased documentary The Mentors: Kings of Sleaze.

This is a podcast in 3 acts.

On the first act, the three of us look at, and discuss the documentary. The second act consists of the three of us interviewing the documentarys' filmmaker April Jones, and finally the third act, involves Stu, sitting down with Mentors co founder and Bassist Dr. Heathen Scum.

This is as comprehensive a look at The Mentors, that any podcast will ever do, call it an accompaniement piece to April's wonderful documentary.

On a personal note, we'd like to thank April for being gracious enough, to let us be probably the only podcast (along with being some of the few select people in the world) out there to have seen the film. Also, we'd like to thank April for her time, and allowing us to interview her. And on a final note, a huge thanks to Steve Broy (AKA) Dr. Heathen Scum, for his time and allowing Stu to interview him, and for letting us use the various pieces of music by The Mentors, contained within this episode.

As we said, this episode is long, so set aside a few hours, and prepare to be schooled up, on the true Kings of Sleaze - The Mentors.

Eagles of Death Metal: Nos Amis



Show-favorite Garo Nigoghossian joins us for a discussion on Colin Hanks' Eagles of Death Metal documentary, Nos Amis. The film follows the band after their horrifying experience at Bataclan in Paris, where ninety of their audience members were massacred by ISIS-backed terrorists, as well as the friendship between Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme. 

In the wake of the French election, this episode got out of hand, and was edited down to focus on the documentary. We will have the full two-plus hour episode available in a paid-pack in the future (which will feature more Garo). 

Also, Rock Month is closing in, let us know if there are any suggestions for bands to cover, and we will take them into consideration.

Thanks fam, we love you all the time.

Tomas Milian Tribute: Django Kill



This week, we pay tribute to the late, great spaghetti western star Tomas Milian.

To do so, John and Hunter are joined by filmmaker, spaghetti western expert, and personal friend of Milian, Eric Zaldivar.

We focus on the film Django Kill (aka Se Vivo Spara), and we talk about Milian’s career, as well as the spaghetti western genre as a whole.

Apologies in advance for some minor audio issues in certain, albiet brief, parts of the show.

The Passion of the Christ



2017 Anno Domini. The Midnight Movie Cowboys look at the Mel Gibson masterpiece 'The Passion of the Christ'.

A brutal film that pull no punches, it affected 2 of us, and one of us is destined for a pineapple in hell.

This is about as religious as the MMC will get, so listen in, and hear our thoughts, on this devastating film.

See ya next week

Listener Request: Sweeney!


Hey friends, back again with a new episode, and this week, it is a listener request from our mate, Mr. Anthony Nesbitt, and he has requested... SWEENEY!

We here at the MMC love us a good British cop show, and Sweeney is one of the best.

On this episode, we look at the 1977 big screen filmed version of the hit television show, Starring Dennis Waterman, and a very old looking, but young John Thaw.

So, sit down, listen on and enjoy.

See ya next week.

Star Trek: City on the Edge of Forever



This week, John, Hunter, and Stu look at one of the most beloved episodes of the original Star Trek series, "City on the Edge of Forever." We talk about the episode, the franchise as a whole, and pay special attention to Harlan Ellison's original teleplay for the episode, and the differences between the final version.

Read Any Good Films Lately?



Hey gang, back with a bit of a left turn for us. This week Stuart and John look at the once popular Novelization. You see there was a time, when a film, would be turned into a novel, for folks to read, as well as watch.

Sadly, the novelization died a death sometime in the last 15 years, and are now barely seen on shelves at book stores (although they are still written, just not in the prominence they once were).

So, let us take you back to a time, when the Novelization, was an important component in helping to promote a film, and too a time, when people would still read books.

See ya next week

“When You Comin’ Back, Red Ryder”.


Red honey, welcome home.

Here it is friends, after near on 7 years of Stuart, constantly harping on about, and professing his love for this film, we finally cover the great "When You Comin' Back, Red Ryder".

Spearheaded, by A Tour de Force performance by Marjoe Gortner, and featuring very solid performances by all other cast involved. This (mostly forgotten) film required discussion. 

There are no tangents this week folks, the odd bit of discussion, away from the film, but it is all relevant. 

So, grab  yourself a plate of Steak and Eggs (it's our specialty), and listen in with us, as we talk this absolute gem of a film.

The MMC Vs. Amazon Prime



Hey gang, we're all here again this week, along with show favorite Garo. On this one we tackle Amazon Prime, and their rather insane decidion, to censor films (mostly independent horror films) due to gore and nudity.

As bastions of free speech, and anti censorship, this doesn't sit well with us (well one of us makes a semi counter argument) and we decided to let fly, with on our thoughts on it.

WARNING - This episode is NSFW, but it's the four of us together, so when is it ever NSFW?

See you all next week

HLatM 1 - Bitter Harvest


Hunter Looks at the Movies is no longer just a meme, fam! This is a new show that's just a bite-sized look at a movie I've recently seen. I recently went to see the film Bitter Harvest, and I wanted to talk about it, but it would be tough to do as a regular MMC show, so I figured I would go ahead and do this solo thing on the feed. Let me know what you think, I'd like to do more of these in the future.

Body Double



Hey all, the gang's all back this week - finally. This week, we look at one of Brian DePalma's more forgotten films - BODY DOUBLE.

See ya next week

For Your Eyes Only



We decided to do a Bond movie this week, so we went with For Your Eyes Only. Now I can't get the stupid song out of my head. It's been over a week. I just want it to go away! PLEASE! HELP! Anyway, this week's show is a good 'un! No Stuart on this one, he'll be back one of these days.

Freddy Vs. Jason


Freddy Vs. Jason?! What the Hell?! Are the MMC becoming gorehound horror fans?! Not so fast, fam. Remember, the best film in either franchise is directed by Ronny Yu, and we're big fans of movies like Fearless and The Postman Returns over here at the MMC. John and Hunter talk about how the movie captures a comic book aesthetic better than most comic book movies, how horror has changed drastically since this movie came out, and other random tangents.

Remember to rate and review us on iTunes if you haven't already, it helps a lot! Thanks for listening!

2016: In Review


And so it is, that we say farewell to 2016. A year with some highs and some lows. This episode is not so much strictly, 2016 in review of films (although we do cover that) but 2016 in general.

Anyway, the MMC will be back in 2017, bigger and badder than ever. Until then, everybody, stay safe Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year to you all.

Thanks so much everyone, for your support.

See ya next year.

The Best of British Vol.1


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

Metallica: Hardwired… To Self-Destruct


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)


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



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!


Nov 7, 2016



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

See ya next week.

Son of Frankenstein


Hey all, Halloween is upon us at the MMC (well for 2 of the 3 of us) So this week, we decided to cover a Universal Horror, one that doesn't get a lot of love, but one we feel is worthy of your time and attention - Son of Frankenstein.

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

Happy Halloween
See ya next week
