Cinema Smorgasbord – Whatever Happened to Vic Diaz? – Beyond Atlantis (1973)

On the latest episode of WHATEVER HAPPENED TO VIC DIAZ? we’re going BEYOND ATLANTIS with Eddie Romero’s odd (sorta) undersea riff on The Treasure of the Sierra Madre featuring bug eyed Atlanteans, John Wayne’s kid, the great Sid Haig and – of course – VIC DIAZ! Along the way we talk about colonialism, Vietnam, go deep on Haig’s career and SO MUCH MORE. Check it out!

Cinema Smorgasbord – We Do Our Own Stunts – Snake in the Eagle’s Shadow (1978)

Over 10 episodes of WE DO OUR OWN STUNTS we’ve seen Jackie Chan struggle for respectability and recognition in martial arts films. There have been high and low points, but we always knew his launch to stardom was coming.. and now here it is! On this episode we’re looking at Yuen Woo-ping’s SNAKE IN THE EAGLE’S SHADOW, the film that was Jackie’s first step towards international stardom. But how did it come about? We look at how Jackie was leant to Seasonal Films, his first meeting with producer Ng See-yuen, his history with Yuen Woo-ping’s family and plenty more. CHECK IT OUT!

Cinema Smorgasbord – Eric Roberts is the Man – Rock Story (2015)

We love to ROCK on Eric Roberts is the (CENSORED) Man, so we were awfully excited to check out 2015’s ROCK STORY which is all about a lawyer who dreams about becoming a rock star. It also features Three’s Company’s Joyce DeWitt, Gilbert Gottfried, murder, awful (awful) music, patriotism, and – of course – Eric Roberts as sleazy agent Andy Granite. We’re joined on this episode by Splathouse’s Mike Delaney, and we chat about the craft of acting, parenting styles, dancing with the stars and SO MUCH MORE. CHECK IT OUT!

Cinema Smorgasbord – How Do You Do, Fellow Kids? – Big Fish (2003)

We crack the Steve Buscemi universe WIDE OPEN on the latest episode of HOW DO YOU DO, FELLOW KIDS? This time we’re talking about Tim Burton’s 2003 fantasy-drama BIG FISH, which made a lot of people cry at the time (we’ve also cried at a lot of his films since then, for other reasons). We also talk about Steve Buscemi receiving the key to New York City, dressing as his 30 Rock character on Halloween and SO MUCH MORE! Check it out!
