Houdini: The Man From Beyond

houdini_man_beyond.jpg

Did you guys know that iconic magician Harry Houdini was also a movie star? Neither did we. In this episode, John and Hunter explore one of Houdini's outings, The Man From Beyond, which is available on Netflix, and is strangely ahead of its time. You'll even get to hear Houdini's actual voice at the top of the show! We also discuss Houdini's career, the History Channel movie about Houdini starring Adrian Brody, and other tangents.

Also, if you've been enjoying the show, please head over to iTunes and give us a rating. If you're feeling generous, leave us a brief review. It would help us out a great deal, and we would really appreciate it. As always, thanks for listening, we'll have another show up very soon.

Netflix Roulette is back, and this time, Hunter and Andrew take a look at a remake of a film discussed awhile back on the show, The Town That Dreaded Sundown, and let me tell you, people, this one is a doozy. We are two for two in picking out bonkers remakes on Netflix Roulette, I feel like we need to watch something nice and tasteful next time. This one plays like a mix of Wes Craven's New Nightmare and an eighties Dario Argento movie. Listen to find out our thoughts, and let us know what you thought of it!

Episode 100 - We finally made it.

mmc100.jpg

So, your pals here over at the MMC have finally hit their 100th episode, and it is definitely, our most self indulgent one. However, we think you will dig it.
For the first half hour , we discuss what we liked and didn't like, of the films released in 2014. Now, this was not planned, but, we were talking about it right before we recorded, and thought, well let's save it for the show, seeing as we never had any plans to do a full show dedicated to it.
The following 2 hours (or so) is us, sitting back and talking about the behind the scenes, and what we did and didn't like, on (nearly) all our previous episodes. That's right, we sit and talk about all our previous episodes, and shed some light onto them, from the ones who were there.
And just for a bit of nostalgia, the very first thing you hear on the show? Well, it was 2 guys, way back in August 2010.....
Finally, a big thank you to anybody and everybody who has, and especially the ones who continue, to listen to us. We cannot thankyou enough. We ain't done yet baby.
See ya next week
Enjoy.
NOTE: The last 15 mins or so, have minor technical issues, Stu's mic was playing up. The problem is only small, but noticeable. We have fixed the problem.

The Crazy Times of Kwai Chang Caine

KungFu.jpg


The MMC is officially back for 2015, kicking things off with John and Hunter discussing the life and career of David Carradine, with a specific focus on his legendary TV series, Kung Fu. Films are discussed, stories and legends are recounted, and myths are debunked (let's just say one involves a false story involving Kung Fu and Bruce Lee). 

In case you missed last week's secret show with Stuart and returning guest Bill O'Keefe (aka Defend Wall St. of Soopermexican fame), be sure to check it out here, as it is a site-exclusive, and did not appear any of our feeds.

Superman. All American icon. Who typifies Superman more than George Reeves. wait! don't you mean Christopher Reeve? Nope. We mean George Reeves, the long forgotten Superman.

We also discuss the 1951 pilot movie 'Superman and the Mole Men', along with the 2006 biopic on Reeves career 'Hollywoodland'.
This is something we have been wanting to do all year, and have finally gotten around to it. We hope you enjoy it, and learn to appreciate George Reeves, and his importance in the annals of Superman history.

Cannonball Run II

dom.jpg

Burt Reynolds and Dom De Luise. One of the finest comedy duos of all time, or was there more to them? On this episode, Stu and John (No Hunter this week) are joined by returning special guests, the Bah-Stahn invasion known as Garo Nigoghossian and the lovely Leslie Dowd.
We talk the Cannonball Run II, we also discuss a few side topics, the U.S mid-term election, the walking disaster that is that c*nt Lena Dunham, and the antics of a particular Australian sports club.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the content of this episode, it can most certainly be deemed as NOT SAFE FOR WORK.
Also, we ask, don't take any offence to the impersonations or situations contained herein, it's all a joke - LAUGH AT YOURSELVES DAMMIT.
Much love

Exorcist II

exorcistII.jpg

She's back... it's back... and HE'S BACK. 
Who are we talking about? Why Linda Blair, Pazuzu and the Armenian / Choctaw madman Garo Nigoghossian.
That's right, this week, we cover (along with fan favorite Garo) the god awful sequel to, what is undoubtedly one of the scariest films of all time THE EXORCIST. 
Exorcist II is a film that has to be seen to be believed. Inept, dismal, and completely incoherent. Exorcist II is an experience unlike any other.
As usual, the show diverts off into some topics that, those who take the moral high ground, would deem to be 'inappropriate', so with that, let it be known that this episode is ABSOLUTELY 110% NOT SAFE FOR WORK - YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

*****No Show this Week*****

Hey all

 Just a heads up to let you all know, there is no new episode this week. Due to a late-in-the-week recording, and very limited time to edit it, to be released in time. 
Also, we have been busy acquiring guests for future episodes, and time has simply slipped away from us.
We will definitely be back next week, with a new episode, with a very sexy, and intelligent guest. Intrigued? You should be.
Thanks for your patience
See you all next week

Wild Style

Wild-Style-1.jpg

It was 1983. Hip-Hop was just breaking through, and a little independent film, WILD STYLE would be the template for all other hip-hop flicks to follow. On this episode we look at, with our very special guest, the legendary (and Rock Steady Crew member) DJ Skeme Richards, this pioneer film.
Cultural and musical diversities abound, make this a fascinating episode. Come listen as both Skeme and John, give those lowbrow Rock / Metal lovers Stu and Hunter a lesson in all things Urban.
We cannot thank, the very busy DJ Skeme Richards, enough for his time to jump on with us.
For all of Skeme's links, please see below
