On Cinema Smorgasbord presents Forgotten Gems? we take a look at past festival favorites that have fallen out of favor and re-litigate them. On this episode we go back to 2005’s Thumbsucker, which won a Special Jury Prize at that year’s Sundance and stars Lou Taylor Pucci, Tilda Swinton, Vincent D’Onofrio and Keanu Reeves.

Is it worth a revisit? Have a listen and decide for yourself!

The great character actor Dick Miller passed away on January 30th, 2019 at the age of 90, leaving a legacy of more than 180 films. On You Don’t Know Dick, we’re going to – with the help of friends and special guests – look at the film and television work of this tremendous performer, and try to get to the bottom of what made him such a special presence in so many films.

On our first episode, we’re looking at the Roger Corman (sorta) directed gothic horror THE TERROR from 1963, starring Jack Nicholson, Boris Karloff, Sandra Knight and Dick Miller.

The film is available in various public domain versions, but the best available to watch for free is this version from The Film Detective:

On our next episode we’ll be looking at one of Miller’s most famous roles in 1959’s A BUCKET OF BLOOD. Watch that here:

There are dozens of genre film festivals around the world, and we either can’t afford – or don’t have the time – to go to any of them. We’re guessing a lot of you are in the same boat. On Cinema Smorgasbord presents Cinema Fantastica we pick one of those festivals, a year in which it ran, and choose two films that played at that festival to BATTLE against each other.

On the premiere episode we go back to the very first edition of Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival to look at two feature length anime favorites. First Doug puts forward the astrological post-apocalyptic madness of 1986’s FIST OF THE NORTH STAR, and then Liam serves up the ultra-violent, ultra-sexy, ultra-misogynistic WICKED CITY from 1987!

It’s the first episode of Cinema Smorgasbord, and we’re kicking off with WE DO OUR OWN STUNTS: A  JACKIE CHAN PODCAST! This podcast is, as you might have guessed, devoted to the life and work of actor JACKIE CHAN, including his vast filmography, his recorded work, cartoons, video games and so much more!

On the premiere episode we go back to 1971 for Jackie Chan’s very first starring role: CUB TIGER FROM KWANG TUNG (a.k.a LITTLE TIGER OF CANTON). Jackie was only 17-years-old when he appeared in the starring role of Hsiao Hu, but had been acting regularly since he was a child; even appearing in Shaw Brothers classics COME DRINK WITH ME and A TOUCH OF ZEN!

But that’s not all! We follow it up with a discussion of MASTER WITH CRACKED FINGERS, a re-edited version of CUB TIGER that added in 50% new footage using a Jackie Chan double and appearances by Chan regulars Yuen Siu Tien and Dean Shek.
