Roadtrip

This past weekend the members of the Nerd Lunch Podcast and the Cult Film Club podcast descended on Atlanta for a meetup.  This was the first time several of us had seen each other in real life.  Here are some photos commemorating this historic nerdy and cultish event.

The first place we all went together was, of course, The World of Coke.

Cult Film Club Episode 10: Miami Connection (1987)

Posted in 80s, movies, nostalgia, podcast, pop culture with tags , , , , , on September 4, 2013 by Paxton

Cult Film Club

So not only did Nerd Lunch hit triple digits last week, now Cult Film Club is hitting double digits.  Welcome to Episode 10 in which we discuss the independent movie sensation of the year, Miami Connection.

Miami Connection

Released to very little fanfare in Orlando (and Germany?!) back in 1987, the film was found on eBay last year and bought by Drafthouse Films for $50.  Now it’s getting worldwide theater and home video releases with the actors reunited for special fan events like every damn week.  It’s nuts how popular this movie has become.  So, being that we are Cult Film Club, we felt it was our duty to forgo our original movie pick for this month and check out this masterpiece of dramatic biker ninja action.  Do you like feathered hair, white ninjas, aligator earrings and orphans reuniting with their dads?  Then you’ve come to the right place.

Cult Film Club vs Classic Film Jerks podcasts in the TAG Summer Crossover series

Cult Film Club

To finish out the TAG Podcasting Network Summer Crossover Series, the Cult Film Club and Classic Film Jerks podcasts teamed up like the Justice League of Podcasting to discuss some classic-y, cult-y films.

First, Jaime, Shawn and I traveled over to those Jerks’ house to discuss the Humphrey Bogart noir classic, The Maltese Falcon (1941).

Maltese Falcon

None of us had seen it so we discuss the actors, the settings, the great character names and of course, we determine if we think this movie deserves it’s “classic film” status.  Listen to the show on iTunes, Stitcher or grab it right here.

Next up, the Classic Film Jerk crew came over to the Clubhouse with us for Cult Film Club Episode 9 where we discuss the cult detective comedy, Zero Effect (1998).

Zero Effect

Starring Bill Pullman and Ben Stiller, this quirky comedy is a modern indie take on the Sherlock Holmes dynamic and considered neo-noir which would allow us to bookend this nice discussion of noir films.  We have a lot of fun and I think you’re going to like these shows.

Cult Film Club

We pulled a sneak attack on you guys. Just when you thought CFC was going to miss our June episode, BOOM, here we are with under the wire with Episode 8 in which we talk about our first sequel, Karate Kid Part III.

There is just so much to love in this retardedly bad movie. Terry Silver, the return of Kreese, “Karate’s Bad Boy” Mike Barnes, Daniel-san forgetting everything he’s learned from the first two movies, Snake and extremely valuable grand daddy banzai trees. It’s all there and Jaime, Shawn and I cover ALL of it because we unabashedly love every single moment in this film. If we could, we’d review this movie every week.

Cult Film Club

Welcome to episode 6 of the Cult Film Club.  This week Shawn, Jaime and I watch and discuss the teen sex comedy Zapped! starring the future Charles in Charge leads, Scott Baio and Willie Aames. The movie also features the lovely Heather Thomas, Felice Schachter and a slew of other familiar 80s faces like Scatman Crothers, Eddie Deezen and the worst looking Mr Spock you’ve ever seen.

We talk about our history with the movie. We talk about the movie’s origins. We talk about the nature of homage and parody. We also discuss telekinetic rape. Because, well, we haven’t done that in a show yet.
