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.
On this episode, we discuss the sad, untimely death of George Reeves, and whether it was suicide, or murder.
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.
See ya next week.

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.
See ya next week (we hope)

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.
See ya next week

Films. Those ones you loved as a kid, well, how do they hold up now? We delve into (along with submissions by some of the listeners) and discuss the ones that unfortunately, just don't make the cut the second time around.
Thanks for your patience with us taking the week off.
See ya next week

Wog Boy, Wog Boy. Yes folks, it's time for another Oz-Ploination. This time around, Stu and Rob go back to the wog well, fishing out the 2000 Aussie comedy gem 'The Wog Boy'.
A little film that took Australia by storm, starring popular Greek comedian Nick Giannopoulos, and Italian actor / comedian Vince Colosimo.
This is the tale of the little Aussie battler, rising up against the system that oppresses them, and pays them the dole every 2 weeks... oh and chicks too.
Listen on with us ya wogs (and you skips too) as we celebrate 'The Wog Boy'

This week on the Midnight Movie Cowboys, Hunter rejoins us, live from Ebola town, to discuss 2 guys who the MMC have not shown any love to in the past (not because we don't like 'em, we LOVE 'em) Terence Hill and Bud Spencer.
On this episode, we talk their career in films, and in particular the film we review - Watch Out, We're Mad (1974).
We also get onto the topic of Ted Nugent, Tyler Perry and Barack Obama, Giant hamburgers and with a few Garo impersonations for good measure. Who says podcasts should be limited to just one conversation?
See you all next week

This week on the MMC, Stu and John (no Hunter this week) return to the world of Bodybuilding, and look at the 2013 documentary GENERATION IRON.

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

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

No folks, your eyes are not deceiving you. We are reposting this episode from mid 2013, due to the fact we have had numerous people tell us they cannot download it anymore. So we are reposting it for these people, and new listeners, or those of you who just didn't catch it earlier.
Also we here at the MMC are taking a break for a week. We will be back next week with a brand new episode.
Please listen to the opening intro regarding episodes that listeners have not been able to download for some reason. We are NOT going to keep reposting them, however we will make sure you get access to them. How you ask? Like we said, listen to the intro.

Sharp dialogue, amazing action and pure 70's cinema perfection is about the only way to sum up the granddaddy of the buddy cop genre - Freebie and the Bean.
On this episode Stu and John (no Hunter this one) look back on this forgotten gem, and discuss how other buddy cop flicks just don't come close, to the great Freebie and the Bean. And as per usual, we tend to trail off into different areas, and this episode is no exception.
oh, and by the way, this time around. This episode IS safe for work.

Garo joins us for the second week in a row (sadly Stu was fighting bloodthirsty reavers away from his house and couldn't join us) to talk about all things Howard Stern, specifically his autobiographical film Private Parts, starring Howard, Robin Quivers, and Paul Giamatti.

We know who you are Bronze!!! o.k this week, we are doing a listener request, and the film requested? MAD MAX. This is right up Stu's alley (him being Australian and all), we also decided to bring our friend, and fan favorite Garo Nigoghossian (AKA: The Armenian madman) onto the show. What you are about to hear, is a whole lot of talk on Mad Max, and of course, it somehow trails off into other conversations.
Please be warned, this episode is NOT SAFE FOR WORK.
If you want to request a film for us to discuss, no problem. Send us an email at email@example.com. Listen to the info on the show for further details.

Hey kids, we're talking about a NEW MOVIE that's IN THEATERS RIGHT NOW! That barely ever happens over here! John and Hunter discuss Gareth Edwards' Godzilla, which resurrects the King of the Monsters for one more go-round in the west. Is it better than that Roland Emmerich disaster from 1998? Do we love it? Do we hate it? Do we just kinda think it's okay? Listen to find out!

John and Hunter venture into the outskirts of Texarkana in search of the elusive Phantom Killer, a man who stalked unsuspecting couples on the secluded lovers' lanes outside of town. The film in question is The Town That Dreaded Sundown, a 1976 cult classic directed by Charles B. Pierce that explores this unsolved mystery in a manner that was far ahead of its time.

While Stu is trapped in the Yabba, John and Hunter tackle a topic they've been wanting to do for awhile: late martial artist, choreographer and filmmaker Lau Kar Leung, also known as Liu Chia-Liang. This week, the two of his movies that are in-focus are 8 Diagram Pole Fighter, starring Gordon Liu and Alexander Fu Sheng, and Martial Arts of Shaolin, starring a young Jet Li. We discussed his film The 36th Chamber of Shaolin on an early episode of the show, so check that out too for a blast from the past. Also, Stu responds to John and Hunter's criticism of his Godzilla opinions on the last show. Enjoy!
