We’re once again wondering WHATEVER HAPPENED TO VIC DIAZ? in 1965’s OPERATION C.I.A., which features Burt Reynolds as Mark Andrews, an agent sent to Saigon (here played by Thailand) as the Vietnam war is heating up in order to stop an assassination. While this Bond-inspired spy film from director Christian Nyby is pretty uneventful, it features a great supporting villainous turn from Vic Diaz, and some two-fisted fun from a mustache-less Reynolds. LET’S WATCH!

After the death of his mother, a young, thin, slightly gawky man in mourning suddenly finds her back from the grave with a hunger for human flesh and must keep her out-of-sight while simultaneously trying to woo his new girlfriend in a series of comedic sequences. No, it’s NOT Peter Jackson’s DEAD/ALIVE (aka BRAINDEAD), it’s the sometimes startlingly similar ED AND HIS DEAD MOTHER from 1993, which leans a lot heavier on goofy humor and much, much, MUCH lighter on graphic violence. This one has a devoted cult around it, and stars a post-RESERVOIR DOGS Steve Buscemi, as well as Ned Beatty, an incredible John Glover and Jon Gries in supporting roles. LET’S SEE WHAT WE THOUGHT!

What better way to celebrate the life and work of actor Eric Roberts than watching a film where his performance was pasted in from a different movie entirely? That’s the case with A KARATE CHRISTMAS MIRACLE, which is already pretty darn confusing, and then they add in scenes from a horror movie, and then forget to have any karate in it. OOPS! Anyway, this is real bad, but thankfully we have martial arts expert (and author of the memoir I OVERCAME MY AUTISM AND ALL I GOT WAS THIS LOUSY ANXIETY DISORDER) Sarah Kurchak joining us to break it all down in detail. IT’S A MIRACLE!

Our guest on this episode if the always wonderful Sarah Kurchak. Her book I OVERCAME MY AUTISM AND ALL I GOT WAS THIS LOUSY ANXIETY DISORDER: A MEMOIR can be purchased in the US on Amazon, and via the Douglas & McIntyre website right here. Follow Sarah on Twitter @FodderFIgure.

Before Denis Villeneuve made big Hollywood movies like ARRIVAL, BLADE RUNNER 2049 or DUNE, he cut his teeth with this odd, Quebecois film about two people looking to bang in the desert. Well, it’s about a lot more than that. There’s capsule hotels, and a burnt corpse and an ending you’re never going to forget. But is it any good? LET’S FIND OUT!

FLASH! AHH-AHHH! On this episode of Whatever Happened to Vic Diaz we jump ahead to 1988 and this Eddie Romero-directed action movie (with quite a bit of broad comedy) starring Flash Gordon himself, Sam J. Jones. It also features some absolutely horrible audio, some unique computer hacking, and lots and lots of explosions. Also, Vic Diaz shows up! Check it out.

On this episode of Cinema Smorgasbord we return to WE DO OUR OWN STUNTS: THE WORK OF JACKIE CHAN, and this time we’re looking at a true oddity. Based on a legendary erotic novel from the early 1600s, this film features no martial arts, but still includes plenty of action. It’s THE GOLDEN LOTUS, a Shaw Brothers production featuring lots of (uncomfortable) sex, murder, intrigue and a very young Jackie Chan in his kinda sorta first role.
