CINEPUNX Episode 58: PUNX WEEKEND- THE WILD BUNCH, VENOM, THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, SUDDENLY AT MIDNIGHT
HAVE WE GOT A SHOW FOR YOU!!
Recorded at the end of our CINEPUNX WEEKEND RETREAT, this episode features the charming Ivo Tomas and the talented though charmless Mikey Smack!
We decided to spend a weekend discussing the future of the Cinepunx empire, but mostly watching movies and eating pork products. SO MANY PORK PRODUCTS!
We decided to not only watch movies this weekend, but to spend some time discussing the films we watched! Each of us chose one film to specifically watch and discuss: THE WILD BUNCH, VENOM, THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, and SUDDENLY AT MIDNIGHT
Of course, we had time to watch more movies as well and we discuss those on the episode. There is also the usual gimmicks like WACK AND ON TRACK, and stuff we are hype on.
WARNING, THIS EPISODE CONTAINS SPOILERS!
One of the things we discussed was that we have not always done the best job of warning folks about spoilers in advance.

During our weekend away we hiked around Bushkill Falls, and really talked about most of the cinepunx related stuff there. It was a beautiful setting and very inspiring, and in that context I readily agreed that what each episode needs, for both shows, is this very episode map so folks could skip around by time.
Now, here at home, I realize that would all fall on me to do, so fuck that shit. I mean yeah, when we have money to pay a producer or editor, we will definitely have some shit like that. Right now, i am editing this late at night at home and at work over my lunch break, so y’all will just learn to live without it.
LEARN TO LIVE WITHOUT IT!
This is of course the struggle continually with this project. Lots of folks involved, but any new idea we have needs someone attached to execute on it or it will fall to me or Josh, and we can only do so much. So let us say again, we are always looking for people to be a part of this thing. Editors, promoters, writers, producers, whatever talents or ideas you think you can bring we welcome. What we want above all though is folks who follow through. I have heard literally 10 GREAT pitches for new podc
