Episode 33 - Now on the Dollar Menu

The two films we cover on Episode 33 have one thing in common, and that is McBain!  We start off with the eponymous 1991 film McBain starring the almost always watchable Christopher Walken as the titular character.  It is hard to believe how catatonic Walken is as he stumbles through this film from the usually reliable James Glickenhaus.  We then turn to the incredibly fun Bulletproof from 1988 starring the always-toothy Gary Busey as an entirely different McBain.  Leaping from trope to trope and plot-hole to plot-hole, this movie is fun fun fun. There is a tank called the Thunderblast, an RPG-wielding Danny Trejo, and multiple uses of the phrase Butthorn!  What more can you ask from a movie?  Please let us know what you thought of the show by sending email to or or you can leave us your thoughts on the Facebook page.

Episode 32 - By Any Other Name

Episode 32 of the podcast shows us being too clever for our own good. Two films, both about hitmen, both with the word "mechanic" in the title, and both starring two legendary tough guys.  Surely they must both be excellent, right?  Listen in and find out just how wrong we were as we talk about 1977's Satanic Mechanic starring Lee Van Cleef ( more commonly known as The Perfect Killer ) and 1972's The Mechanic starring the amazing Charles Bronson and directed by show-favorite Michael Winner.  The storylines from these two films are very similar but the quality is worlds-apart.  We had a great time talking about both though.  Please let us know what you thought of the show by sending email to  or or, if you'd prefer, leave a message over at our Facebook page.
