    Bill and Ted's Excellent Trilogy

    Bill and Ted's Excellent Trilogy

    In this most triumphant extended episode, Brian and Cargill go back in time (and also return to the present) to discuss the entirety of Bill & Ted's Excellent Trilogy!

    They discuss why Excellent Adventure is one of the very best time travel flicks of the 80s, how Bogus Journey broke the sequel mold, and why Face the Music is the joy injection 2020 so desperately needed. Also, the guys abuse their own time traveling abilities most heinously.

    Be excellent to each other, share this episode far and wide. Party on, Junkions!

    The Quick and the Dead

    The Quick and the Dead

    After many years on the JFC most wanted list, Brian and Cargill have finally come to judge The Quick and the Dead.

    It’s the star-studded neo western that is “drenched in spaghetti.” It’s the bloodsport tournament film where almost every combatant has a fascinating secret. Also, it might just be Sam Raimi’s best film.

    Don’t wait for high noon, listen and share now!

    Last Action Hero: Part 2 with Special Guest Joe Lynch

    Brian and Joe jump back through the screen and put Last Action Hero even further under the microscope.

    In this installment, the guys discuss passion projects. How Arnold Schwarzenegger invested so much into this movie that he even donned a schoolboy uniform and took guns out of the hands of toys?

    They didn’t plan it, but the love Brian and Joe have for this unfairly maligned masterpiece of meta action filmmaking could not be contained within one hour...or two...or even three!

    The Thing

    The Thing

    With the passing this summer of both Ennio Morricone and Wilfred Brimley, Brian and Cargill felt the time was right to venture to Outpost 31 and visit with The Thing.

    The guys dissect the ending theories, ponder why initial reception to The Thing was so cold, and argue that this masterpiece is even more powerful in 2020 than it was in 1982!

    They also manage to do battle with The Underquaker, pit The Thing against The Beastmaster, and go to the drive-in with Anthony Michael Hall?

    Download, listen and share. No blood test required.

Great podcast!

Fun but still in-depth discussion about great Guilty Pleasures. Highly recommended!

Highest recommendation.

You can find a couple of podcasts about obscure, trashy cult movies… But it’s a rarity to find one that’s so easy to listen to. Cargill & Brian have a rapport akin to Gregory Hines & Billy Crystal in Running Scared, and their enthusiasm is infectious to the point it makes me want to watch EVERY movie they cover; even if it’s one that I’ve already seen and deemed meritless.
