Chicken and Duck Talk


This week we have decided to finally look at, in depth, the 1988 comedy classic, from the multi talented Hui Brothers 'Chicken and Duck Talk'.
A wonderful little comedy, that unfortunately nobody knows outside of Asia. So Stu and John decided that it was time, that you Westerners opened your eyes, and your minds a bit, to the comic styling of the Hui Brothers, and in particular, this little gem of a film.
So listen on, and prepare to get hungry.
See ya all next week.

Bish’s Beat: A Conversation with author Paul Bishop


Welcome folks to another episode of the MMC. This week, we were very fortunate to be joined by legendary LAPD Detective turned author - Paul Bishop.
It's information overload on this one, as Paul is kind enough to share some of his stories, of his time in the LAPD, along with his thoughts on the O.J Simpson case, and the subsequent trial. He also regales us with his first hand account, of his time on the frontline during the L.A riots of 1992.
But that's not all, as we said, he is also an author, and a prolific one at that. He discusses his books with us (and his upcoming new one LIE CATCHERS) 
BUT, that's still not all, we also discuss the differences of portrayals of Police Officers in Hollywood, on the big and small screen, compared to that of real life.
It all makes for a fascinating listen, we cannot thank Paul enough for joining us, and look forward to having him back again, with us, in the near future.
You can find Paul, and his works in the links below.
Go visit his website and buy his books HERE
You can also buy his FIGHT CARD Book series HERE
Follow Paul on Twitter HERE
Find Paul's page on Facebook HERE
And finally, buy Paul's books on Amazon HERE

The MMC Goes to the Drive-In

We talk about the benefit, sometimes, of a shorter leaner film, compared to a bloated modern day Hollywood feature. We also discuss the crude special effects of Hollywood back in the 50's, and, the films at hand of course.
So ease the seat back, stock up at the concession stand, and enjoy.
See you all next week.
NOTE: The sound on this episode is replicated to sound like it was broadcast out of a drive-in car speaker, there is nothing wrong with your sound system. We will return to normal sound next week.

Episode 100 - We finally made it.


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
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.
