Junkfood Cinema is a shame-free celebration of cult cinema hosted by critic Brian Salisbury and Marvel Studios screenwriter C. Robert Cargill

    Best of the Best with Special Guest Jon Gabrus

    Best of the Best with Special Guest Jon Gabrus

    This week, Brian steps into the ring with special guest Jon Gabrus (High and Mighty, The Action Boyz) to determine if their favorite late 80s tae kwan do movie really is Best of the Best.

    The guys discuss BotB’s knockout cast, its charming sincerity, and the nearly incomprehensible tournament rules. Somehow they also invent a new buffalo wing challenge, get into a bar fight with Jason Voorhees, and roundhouse kick a few horses?

    Listen and share this episode, you’re the best!

    Brick

    Brick

    Brian and Cargill--two cads, a couple of piehouse rats--beat their chops to squawk about the brilliance of Rian Johnson's Brick.

    They discuss the lyrical language of the film, the high school noir, and the importance of the punch-transition. Also discussed: time travel, the Brick homage hidden in Cargill's first book, and the accidental shot heard round the world.

    Don't heel it or take a powder, download this episode. And if you think we don't stan Jo-Go Levy-Levs then you're scratching at the wrong door.

    Street Fighter with Special Guest Todd in the Shadows

    For you, the day Junkfood Cinema covered Street Fighter was the most important day of your life. For JFC, it was Tuesday.

    Brian and Cargill are joined by special guest Todd in the Shadows (aka Todd in the Shadaloo) to go at least three rounds with one of the most baffling videogame adaptations ever.

    The guys throw love at Raul Julia, lower the Sonic Boom on Street Fighter: The Movie: The Game, and posit which 90s sitcom should have starred Wes Studi.

    Dead Alive with Special Guest Nick Wiger

    Dead Alive with Special Guest Nick Wiger

    Brian is joined by the fantastic Nick Wiger (Doughboys, How Did This Get Played) to get a little messy with Peter Jackson's Dead Alive (a.k.a. Braindead).

    The guys discuss the art buried under the gore, the sleeve-worn influences, and how this very well have been the movie that taught Jackson how to shoot hobbits. They also get (Yahoo) serious, visit a Hungry Jack, and play a thrilling round of, "Is It the 50s or Just New Zealand."

    If you would download and share this episode, that would really kick ass (for the lord)!

One the first podcasts for me...

For me it all started with “The Movie Crypt” and Junk Food Cinema is kind of like the The Movie Crypt’s hot cousin who visits for the summer and hangs out at the pool a lot and doesn’t know that in school you are really a nerd.

Bunch of factual errors

They confidently make incorrect statements every other episode. I keep giving them another chance, but I keep getting hurt.

And now I’m giving up on them yet again

Great Pod

This show is great. Brian and Cargill are great hosts and have so much knowledge on the movies they cover. It’s like sitting with 2 friends and just talking about our favorite movies. A definite must listen if you’re a movie buff.
