Greetings listeners, and please forgive us the disruption as we hold between two parts of Lone Wolf and Cub. While we handle some off-cast logistics, please enjoy a revisit to one of our earlier episodes, a classic of the genre, Seven Samurai.
Are you a fan of the Mandalorian? Loving Mando and Baby Yoda? Well, not every samurai movie features a stroller of death and a lovable father/son dynamic, but Lone Wolf and Cub: Sword of Vengeance sure does. Well…maybe lovable isn’t quite the right word.
This week we watch Dazed and Confused: The College Years, better known as Kicking and Screaming. Behold as young men of privilege struggle to find a path forward after the wild days of college have come to an end.
This week we’ve got acting, we’ve got drama critics, and yes, we’ve got Nazis with Francois Truffaut’s The Last Metro. We also have subpar audio for part of the episode thanks to Dr. Z’s ineptitude. Our apologies!
With our spooktacular October fright-fest in the past, this week we look to another genre of films entirely. Get ready for high intensity hijinks with Jackie Chan’s Police Story.
Before they were walkers, they were…well…they were kind of unnamed. But they definitely gave rise to the modern interpretations of Zombies. Let’s take a look this Halloween at Night of the Living Dead.
Dr. Zed sincerely hopes there isn’t an otherworldly punishment for getting the podcast up a day late, since Jigoku’s depiction of the bowels of Hell certainly has some apt punishment in store for him. Perhaps the Sisyphean task of editing an episode that never ends!
