Episode 222 – We Do Our Own Stunts – Fantasy Mission Force (1983)

After helping him get out of his previous contract (and some messy business with some Triads) Jackie Chan owed martial arts superstar Jimmy Wang Yu some big favors, and he started paying up by appearing briefly in the truly bizarre 1983 action/comedy FANTASY MISSION FORCE. Despite a plot structure that (loosely) copies The Dirty Dozen, FANTASY MISSION FORCE throws in amazons, Nazis, vampires, ghosts, Brigitte Lin, musical numbers, Mad Max-style cars and lots and lots of explosions. There's even a few kung fu fights for good measure, It's far from boring, but is it any good? Let's find out! Read more

On this episode of BARTEL ME SOMETHING GOOD (the world's finest Paul Bartel-themed podcast) we're tackling Paul Bartel's final directorial feature, the sadly abused (and semi-unavailable) bunker comedy SHELF LIFE from 1993! Born out of a stage-play by stars O-Lan Jones, Andrea Stein, and Jim Turner, Bartel turns it into a wildly visual phantasmagoria of rituals, re-enactments and hormonally confusing games, with a typically wicked sense of humor. Check it out!Read more

Episode 219 – Further Reeding – The Damned (1963)

Black leather, black leather, kill kill kill!

Featuring Gastone Moschin as Ugo Piazza, a small time gangster fresh out of jail being hunted down by his former associates for stealing $300,000 that he swears he doesn't have, it's tough as nails and features a memorable jazz-flute tinged score by Luis Enríquez Bacalov and the Italian progressive rock group Osanna.

Episode 216 – Praising Kane – Racing with the Moon (1984)

PRAISING KANE returns with 1984's RACING WITH THE MOON, a pretty darn good World War II-era coming of age film starring Sean Penn & Nicolas Cage as close friends who experience a whole lot of life's trials and tribulations in the days before they are shipped off to the war. Directed by Richard Benjamin, it has a bunch of young familiar faces (including Crispin Glover and Michael Madsen), and clearly has a lot of empathy for its mixed up central characters. Oh, and of course Carol Kane is in there as well in a small - but memorable - role. All that and the latest Carol Kane news so CHECK IT OUT.Read more

What went wrong? LISTEN AND FIND OUT.Read more

Episode 211 – We Do Our Own Stunts – Dragon Lord (1982)

After a less-then-fruitful experience in the US (filming THE BIG BRAWL and THE CANNONBALL RUN), Jackie returned to Hong Kong with a blank check from Golden Harvest and a chip on his shoulder. The result was plenty of bumps, bruises and 1982's DRAGON LORD, which serves as a transitionary period between the old-school kung fu films of his past and the stunt-heavy films (with higher production value) that would define his work in the 1980s. In this episode of WE DO OUR OWN STUNTS we break down the good and bad of DRAGON LORD, its two cuts, and the two bravura sequences within. LISTEN!Read more

We're getting WILD IN THE STREETS with Jean-Paul Belmondo in the 1983 action film LE MARGINAL (aka THE OUTSIDER)!
