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

Freebie and the Bean

freebie-and-the-bean-from-warner-bros.jp

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.

The search for Count Dante

The-Search-for-Count-Dante-a-film-by-Flo

John Timothy Keehan AKA Count Dante was marketed as 'The deadliest man alive' in the 1970's. His advert was usually found in the pages of Marvel Comics.
Not a great deal is known about Count Dante, and after his sudden death in 1975, his mystical persona reached epic heights.
Now, a new documentary about the controversial Count Dante is in production, and we here at the Midnight Movie Cowboys, are pleased to be speaking with, and being educated about Count Dante by documentary filmmaker Floyd Webb.
Join Stu and John (again, no Hunter, he is definitely back next week) along with Floyd, in a discussion about one of the most mysterious and controversial Martial Artists ever.

Harlan Ellison: The Last Dangerous Vision

harlan-ellison.jpg

DREAMS WITH SHARP TEETH is a documentary of Harlan Ellison, prolific short story writer, science fiction convention cult of personality and perpetual crank. Hunter and John (No Stu this week, as he'd never heard of the guy) discuss whether the documentary captures the essence of Harlan's appeal, or lack thereof. And yes, the producers of THE TERMINATOR did settle with Ellison on a plagiarism charge. Ellison also wrote the famous Star Trek episode "City On the Edge of Forever," but we don't get into that too much. An informative episode that'll have you Googling so much, you'll go back to Ask Jeeves.
