Welcome to the Grindbin, a podcast where your hosts Mike Wood and Chris Mann dig through the exploitation films and grindhouse cinema of the 1970's and 1980's. Join us on our journey to explore these forgetting film classics of decades past and breathe new life into the movies that time forgot.
331 - Skyscraper (1996)
PM Entertainment returns to the Gridbin (Rage, The Sweeper) with an over-the-top action movie starring... Anna Nicole Smith? Anna, playing a helicopter pilot who dreams of getting pregnant and having picnics, has to single-handedly stop a terrorist group from taking over the Boggle factory. Featuring 80 year old men henchmen, mid-action sex breaks, and the mysterious disapearance of a Grindbin host during the episode... it's everything you could ever want in a bin episode... and more!
330 - Tough Guys Don't Dance (1987)
What happens when Cannon films gives a two time pulitzer prize winning author the chance to write and direct any movie he wants? The greatest failure of cinema ever created.
329 - Speedtrap (1977)
Bobby, Chef Robby, and Sir Charles discuss a Joe Don Baker, Robert Loggia 70's car movie where neither men have decided to care... or even read the script. The agressive apathy provides mind blowing moments onscreen and a great movie for the Grindbin.
328 - Avenging Force (1986)
A child is thrown from a roof, a man is excited about hot soup on a cold night, Charles Nelson Reilly might have killed a man in the bayou... Cannon, you've done it again!
327 - Skatetown, U.S.A. (1979)
Tanner, Jersey James, Bobby, and Mike discuss Skatetown U.S.A., a movie that has everything you could ever want. Subpar skate routines, a young Patrick Swayze whipping his belt around, and freakin' Murray Langston. A legendary 70's ensemble movie that was nearly lost to time but recently re-released on Blu-Ray, Skatetown is worth lacing up for.
326 - Blood Beat (1983)
Bobby and Mike are joined by Julie and Matt Anderson on their Christmas trip to rural Wisconsin to discuss a movie written, directed, and produced by one really, really high guy. What starts out as a family get together devolves into a film that features a mind reading mother, a Nestle Quick to the balls, Scanners brain powers, Predator vision, and a Samurai ghost! Unwrap and enjoy.
Unique Podcast. Addictive Listen.
I’ve been on a podcast kick for a couple of years now. I can say I listen to roughly 15 podcasts regularly. What separates Grindbin from the rest is how easy it is to listen to. Their insight on cult movies is spot on. Every episode is good for a numerous amount of laughs. The hosts don’t have grating voices and never come across as know it alls. Just regular guys doing a thorough job talking about movies. I highly recommend!!!
Fun and laid-back discussion of a wide variety of exploitation/cult/trash movies. Most of the movies they profile are so bad they're good, which makes them all the more enjoyable to laugh about; some of them (Ms.45, House, etc.) are actually good! Unfortunately some of the movies are so irredeemably bad that no amount of humorous commentary can make them interesting to hear about. But the main hosts have a great conversational style and usually do a hilarious job riffing on the many weird details of these movies. Quality of the guests can vary. They also go into a LOT of detail about the various cast and crew members before getting into the movie itself which sometimes goes on for too long. Definitely recommended for fans of cult cinema and MST3K style humor. A few titles I'd love to hear them cover: Julie Darling, Toys Are Not For Children, Thundercrack, Black Cobra, Welcome Home Brother Charles
One of the best
Funny, insightful, and always entertaining! I could listen to these guys banter on the phone book!
