005 Dead Man by Jim Jarmusch

In this week's episode, we review the 90's postmodern/psychedelic western Dead Man, by indie film director Jim Jarmusch. Both of us agree this is an exceptional film and ground breaking in its re-interpretation of what could be considered a bygone genre, the western. Packed with notable personalities, Jarmusch offers a beautiful sequence of vignettes, that unto themselves, requires little context. Filmed on location in our native Northwest, we attempt to add a little local flavor to the discussion. Dead Man stars the ever adventurous Johnny Depp, Gary Farmer, awesomely weird Crispin Glover, Lance Henricksen, legend Iggy Pop, Michael Wincott, Billy Bob Thornton, Alfred Molina, John Hurt, and late western icon Robert Mitchum. Enjoy!

004 Logan's Run by Michael Anderson

In this week's episode we review the 70's Sci-Fi cult classic Logan's Run. Unfortunately nostalgia for the post-hippie free love and drugs era wasn't enough to stave off the plot holes and silliness of this far out mind blower. In the end, Matt and Mark both decide Logan and his young attractive city dwellers were better off dying at 30. Logan's Run was directed by Michael Anderson and stars Michael York, Jenny Agutter, Richard Jordan, and Peter Ustinov. Enjoy!

003 Mad Max 2 - The Road Warrior

We up the production value with a little bumper music courtesy of Dan-O at while adding in a little Ebert-esque intro clip. In this week's episode, we discuss the seminal cult classic Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior, a cult movie if there ever was one. Mad Max 2: TRW was a watershed moment for action film and the post apocalyptic fiction in general. It literally defined the look and feel of the genre. The Road Warrior was written and directed by George Miller and stars the volatile and never boring Mel Gibson. Enjoy...

002 An American Werewolf in London by John Landis

This week we review An American Werewolf in London by John Landis released in 1981, an excellent early eighties example of camp/comedy horror that would lead the way for such classics as Evil Dead II. Matt laments the current state of CGI and the blight of Stephen Meyer's Twilight and its dismal degradation of werewolves and the horror genre in general. Enjoy!
