Cinema Smorgasbord – How Do You Do, Fellow Kids? – The Dead Don’t Die (2019)

The world’s finest Steve Buscemi-themed podcast returns earlier than usual so we can celebrate SPOOKY SEASON with Jim Jarmusch’s bizarre zombie horror comedy THE DEAD DON’T DIE from 2019! With a bonkers all-star cast (including Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, Chloë Sevigny, Selena Gomez, Austin Butler, Iggy Pop, Carol Kane, RZA, Danny Glover.. and STEVE BUSCEMI) the film was received with confusion upon release but has a amassed a rapidly growing following. Find out our thoughts on this and all the latest Steve Buscemi news. CHECK IT OUT

Cinema Smorgasbord – George Kennedy is my Copilot – Tick, Tick, Tick (1970)

On this episode of GEORGE KENNEDY IS MY CO-PILOT our merry trio is diving into the fiery drama TICK, TICK, TICK from 1970 starring Jim Brown, Fredric March, Clifton James and – of course – George Kennedy! Brown stars as the newly elected Sheriff of a very, very racist southern county, while Kennedy is the now ex-Sheriff who is semi-committed to keeping him alive. Spoiler: it’s not easy! Before that we discuss another George Kennedy commercial (for California-based tech company TOTLCOM), and try our darndest to make it interesting (did we succeed? listen and find out!)

The Shame List Picture Show S7E13 – ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA (1984) feat. Christopher Kai House

Hello and welcome to another episode of the Shame List Picture Show! On this episode, Michael is being joined by the co-founder of the Milwaukee Twisted Dreams Film Festival, Christopher Kai House, to discuss Sergio Leone’s ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA. This is an epic film was Leone and is also the last film he had made before passing away in in 1989. 

Cinema Smorgasbord – How Do You Do, Fellow Kids? – Animal Factory (2000)

We’re back on HOW DO YOU DO, FELLOW KIDS? with the Steve Buscemi-directed prison drama (based on the Edward Bunker book) ANIMAL FACTORY from 2000, starring Edward Furlong & Willem Dafoe, along with a killer supporting cast. Starring Buscemi-verse regulars like Seymour Cassel, Mark Boone Junior, and Rockets Redglare, you also get memorable supporting performances from Danny Trejo, Mickey Rourke, Tom Arnold(!) and.. wait for it. Steve Buscemi! Listen to us talking to it, ya sick twist!

Cinema Smorgasbord – You Don’t Know Dick – Star Trek: Deep Space Nine “Past Tense” (/w Adrianna Gober)

On this episode of YOU DON’T KNOW DICK we’re boldly going where no podcast has gone before with Dick Miller in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine two-parter ‘Past Tense’. Wildly considered one of the best (and most prescient) episodes of the series, it looks at the state of cities in the far off future of 2024 and how struggling people are carted off to walled off ‘sanctuaries’, and one of the people guarding these sanctuaries is none other than Dick Miller. Joining us on this trek across the stars is our Bartel Me Something Good podcast co-host (and Trekkie) Adrianna Gober, who makes the case of DS9 being the best of all Star Treks, and is utterly baffled by the choice to watch a Rod Stewart music video (also featuring Dick Miller). A good time was had by all. CHECK IT OUT!

Cinema Smorgasbord – Whatever Happened to Vic Diaz? – Equalizer 2000 (1987)

They took his girl. Now he’s talking them STRAIGHT TO HELL! On this episode of WHATEVER HAPPENED TO VIC DIAZ we’re getting properly post-apocalyptic with Cirio H. Santiago’s Mad Max-“inspired”, giant gun classic EQUALIZER 2000 starring Richard Norton (/w frosted tips), Corinne Wahl and a VERY young Robert Patrick in only his second ever role! There’s lots of gunfire, explosions and – blissfully – almost no plot to be concerned with, and it delivers the promise of a very big gun that mows down tons of faceless bad guys. HOORAY. We also chat a bit about the long tradition of post-apocalyptic films and some of our favs, and – of course – we dive into an appearance by the legendary Vic Diaz. CHECK IT OUT!

Cinema Smorgasbord – How Do You Do, Fellow Kids? – I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry (2007)

We tried. We tried our best to find some small piece of enjoyment in Dennis Dugan’s bafflingly misguided I NOW PRONOUNCE YOU CHUCK & LARRY, a film about two straight firefighters (played by Adam Sandler and Kevin James) who decide to get married in order to deal with some uncomfortable pension-related paperwork. Overstuffed with pitiful racist, sexist and homophobic stereotypes, it’s – even worse – completely unfunny, and has a horribly confused message at its core. Yeesh. Anyway, we get angry about that, but there’s also plenty of chat about the ongoing writer/actor strike, and – of course – all the latest Steve Buscemi news. CHECK IT OUT, JERKS.
