Episode 11: Golgo13 - The Professional
Golgo 13: The Professional is a landmark piece of animation that still looks breathtaking all these years later. Norm from A Question of Character joins me to talk about the film's revolutionary use of CG, fantastic sense of style, and dope soundtrack. We also talk about some of our other favorite old-school anime from the 80s and 90s!
Episode 10: Cloak and Dagger
Cloak and Dagger! Atari: The Motion Picture! Sure, it was a crass attempt at blatant product placement, but it's also kind of a sweet movie about a boy and his dad. And Elliot from ET murders a dude with a gun.
Fellow movie geek and all around great guy Tony Recznik talk about what's great and not-so-great about this 80s classic.
Episode 09: Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia
Giant Bomb's Alex Navarro and I take a swig of tequila, follow it with a chaser of despair, and plunge into the miserable depths of Sam Peckinpah's underappreciated masterpiece of misanthropy - Bring Me The Head of Alfredo Garcia!
Content Warning: We do discuss the scenes of violent misogyny and sexual assault that are in this film.
Episode 08: BMX Bandits & Rad
My old friend Erik Pepple pops in for the first Cinema Oblivia double feature! We talk put on our safety gear and discuss the great BMX Bandits and the not-so-great-but-kinda-still-great Rad. What makes a good movie about a fad? Do these movies hold up today? Find out here!
Episode 07: Joysticks
Video games, sex comedies, and oddly descriptive subtitles about flatulence combine in Joysticks, the classic(???) 1983 comedy by B-movie king Greydon Clark. My friend Matt joins me to talk about the film, the video games featured within, the oddly talented cast, and the very descriptive fart subtitles.
Because we're classy.
Episode 6: The Apple
Shane Bettenhausen, formerly of 1UP and EGM, gives me a call to tell me about why he thinks The Apple is the world's best "great" bad movie. I vehemently disagree with him, but we have a fun time talking about this disaster of a flick regardless. We talk about the crazy story behind the making of this film, the poor people who were involved in it, and our views on what makes a bad movie worth watching.
Excited for more!
I have been following Lost Turntable on Twitter for awhile now so I know his taste in movies are unique and he knows his stuff. First episode was fun and informative and definitely has me excited for more. If you like different, old, or obsucre movies you should check it out.
