Things that bug us
In this week's visit to the Classic Midnight Movie Club vaults we uncover a podcast that actually wasn't about any specific film. This was probably our first random podcast where we tried to answer questions you might have or cover something different than just a film. Sure they're fun to listen to now but they weren't all that popular at the time (I don't think, it's hard to remember). Anyway it's interesting to listen to what bugged us back then and I'm pretty sure we could add to the list now!

Spending the summer in a holiday camp with her family, Frances "Baby" Houseman falls in love with the camp's dance instructor Johnny Castle. Remember that time we put Dan in the corner and then carried watermelons... ummm somewhere? Yes this was the Midnight Movie Club's first romantic film just in time for Valentines Day. I don't think we specifically ever did another ode to romance which was probably for the best in the long run. I don't think you can say that Dan and I are the most qualified to discuss romance as I'm reasonably certain we devote a good chunk of this podcast to debating if Baby was indeed put into a corner or was it more of an alcove?

Tremors 2: Aftershock
The Graboids are back in this sequel to the campy comedy horror hit that finds luckless Earl Basset (Fred Ward) and survivalist Burt Gummer (Michael Gross) teaming up to destroy the monsters that are wreaking havoc in the Mexican oil fields. In this podcast we watched Tremors 2 and some people have asked why we didn’t watch the first one, well in true Midnight Movie Club fashion Dan saw Tremors 2 late one night and knew straight away that we should watch it for the club. I'm also pretty certain this is the podcast where our atrocious and somewhat racist attempts at accents started, I apologise but we were young and stupid.

The Last Starfighter
The ultimate video game experience comes to life in The Last Starfighter - the timeless sci-fi adventure of an 18-year-old Earthling with extraordinary talent for video game wizardry who is propelled into regions of outer space to help save the universe. The Last Starfighter podcast was cursed, cursed as if we had built a giant house over the top of a sacred burial ground moved in, put our daughter in front of a big tv and lit up some reefer. We recorded it twice because the first time my computer ate it. The second time Dan’s computer ate 45 minutes of editing time he had done. So we hope you enjoy revisiting the podcast!

Corrupt Air Force major (Travolta) intentionally crash lands a U.S. plane in the middle of the desert and holds two nuclear warheads for ransom. The only ones who can stop him are his co-pilot (Slater) and a U.S. park ranger (Mathis) patrolling the area . Sorry for the huge delay but as I mentioned on the current midmoclub podcast sadly in my list of things to do this usually gets bumped for other things - which doesn’t mean I don’t love them I’ve just got tons of stuff to do!!! Enjoy the Broken Arrow podcast as Dan and I get caught up in butterfly conversations and ramble on about Christian Slater’s career. This podcast first aired: Jan 27, 2010fi Remember you can hear new podcasts over on the parent site and we’d love to hear your thoughts on this classic podcast here or over on the Facebook page. Lee

One of the earliest feature films to reflect the video-game craze of the 1980s, Disney's Tron stars Jeff Bridges as computer programmer Kevin Flynn, who becomes part of the very game that he's programming. Flynn's principal antagonist is his glory-grabbing boss, Ed Dillinger (David Warner), who likewise metamorphoses into a video-game character. The title character, a computer-generated superhero, is played by Bruce Boxleitner. Though antiquated by 1990s standards, Tron represented the last word in special effects back in 1982. Surprisingly, despite its long-range influence on the movie industry, the film was a box-office disappointment when first released. Wow, only a couple of episodes in and we're already trying out new on air talent! We welcomed Jeff Caddick as our guest Midnight Movie Crew member for this episode and of course discussed the Disney scifi film Tron. Dan hadn't actually seen Tron before this so it was interesting to get his take.

Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure
With only a few days before their high-school graduation, it looks like airheaded rock star wannabes Bill (Alex Winter) and Ted (Keanu Reeves) are doomed to flunk all their finals. With the aid of Rufus (George Carlin), an emissary from the future the boys use a time machine to deliver a most excellent history presentation featuring key individuals from history. This episode was in actual fact the first real podcast of the Midnight Movie Club and you can hear Dan and I apologise profusely to those who had enjoyed our first written entries. We were worried that podcasting was dead and that no one would listen to us, to say we were wrong is somewhat of an understatement. I'm unbelievably happy that we made the move to podcasting, I doubt we would have lasted as long as we did without the change and we discovered the very much alive world of podcasting. Take a listen to our Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure podcast and let us know what you thought of it in the comments or over on Facebook. When Dan was researching for the podcast he discovered that he actually owned some original artwork from the Bill and Ted comic book series and posted the photo below to prove it: Remember you can hear new podcasts over on the parent site and we'd love to hear your thoughts on this classic podcast.

The Cannonball Run
Burt Reynolds and director Hal Needham team up for the fourth time, this time bringing an all-star cast of characters on a cross-country car race in the vein of 1976 release The Gumball Rally. Reynolds stars as J.J. McClure, a speed-loving racer disguised as an ambulance driver to outsmart the police. He is paired up with Dom Deluise, who plays his dimwitted sidekick Victor and who, on occasion, dons the suit of Captain Chaos. Rat Packers Dean Martin and Sammy Davis, Jr. join the lineup as Ferrari-driving priests, while martial arts expert Jackie Chan takes on one of his first U.S. film roles driving a souped-up Subaru. rt This was the Breakfast Bar podcast that cemented turning the blog into a podcast and it's easy to see why. Even though Dan and I never adhered well to time frames in the future this was a tight, short podcast which showcased our natural rapport with each other. The movie itself was a massive disappointment and still stands out as one of the biggest surprises for me as I loved The Cannonball Run films growing up but sometimes you can't go back. Take a listen and let us know in the comments what you thought of the last of the Breakfast Bar podcasts: A lot of people have been asking where the old episodes are so please do us a favour and let everyone know about the new "classic" podcast via your networks!

The second Breakfast Bar podcast
Dan and I recorded this after a lengthy chat about Back to the Future and I’m struck by the lack of quality compared to the first one. It’s all just a little subdued and my predilection for filling spaces with “um”. Originally the podcast was billed with “Back to the Future” but we barely mention the film so I’ve taken the liberty to change the title. “We’re unprofessional, we giggle at rude words that mean different things in other countries, I marginalise the Star Wars fandom, we stay completely off topic for at least 98% of the time.” From the original post. In the podcast we discuss movies that we’ll “never” review on the podcast: Jaws (reviewed on 1/9/2010) Ghostbusters (reviewed on 21/7/13 ) Groundhog Day (reviewing next on The Midnight Movie Club) Jurassic Park Star Wars (we had every intention to review it in an abandoned Star Wars marathon) The Indiana Jones trilogy (reviewed on 6, 13 & 20/7/11) Check out this classic (if not flawed) podcast that first aired 30th December 2009: Remember if you like this podcast and you’re interested in hearing more, subscribe via iTunes or RSS. Also new episodes are airing on the parent site The Midnight Movie Club. Would love to hear your thoughts on this diamond in the very rough in the comments below or over on Facebook or Twitter.

When Dan and I first started the Midnight Movie Club we were publishing blog posts that were exact copies of the conversations we were having on Google Wave. I was quite proud of myself for producing almost an exact replica of Google Wave in the CSS (cascading style sheet - thingie that controls the way a site looks). Sadly it took a lot of time and didn't hold up real well if the stylesheet stopped working. Having dabbled in podcasting I was quite keen to augment that conversation with a podcast which we called the Breakfast Bar. After just a couple of these we completely abandoned the Google Wave republishing and focused on the podcast, thus the Midmoclub podcast was born. This was our first Breakfast Bar podcast and featured the Bill Murray christmas film "Scrooged". It was first broadcast 24th December 2009. I'm more than a little surprised at how well it holds up. We also recorded using Skype video so we could see each other talking though lags in Skype video would later lead to more tension than it was worth. Please note that the blog addresses mentioned (shamelessly in some cases) probably don't exist any more. As a side note I've still never located a copy of The Taking of Beverly Hills. The music track featured within the podcast is An Orange Groove by Raphael Pistachio.
