The Farmer (1977)
Hey friends, we're back with a new episode, and on this one, we are joined by Eric Zaldivar and special guest author Chris Pogialli, to discuss the rarely seen film from 1977 - The Farmer. It's an interesting discussion about a wildly violent film, that has yet to ever receive a home video release on any format (that we are aware of anyway). We want to thank Chris and Eric for joining us on this one. The new segments are here also - Whip out your Junk and Rue, Britannia. Enjoy

The Psycho Sequels
Hey friends, this week we finish off our Horror month. The MMC are joined by Eric Zaldivar, jumping back in on Mother's rocking chair, to look at the Psycho Sequels. We don't cover the original Psycho at all (albeit a brief 2 minute discussion on it), but we do go in depth about Psycho II, III and IV. So, how do these sequels stack up, against the granddaddy of all horror films? well, you may just be surprised at our opinions. We also throw in tidbits of knowledge about the making of these films. Please note, there are NO tangents on this episode whatsoever. We do have tangents, but they are not on this episode, instead you can find them as seperate pieces on our Soundcloud page (bet you didn't know we had one of those did you hmm?) You go to our Soundcloud page HERE to listen to the tangents (and some others we have posted years ago) Having said all that, make yourself some tea, pop on your Periwinkle Blue dress and wig, and listen on with us. Enjoy

Shadow of the Vampire
Hey friends, horror month continues on the MMC, and this week we take a look at the little independent film, that dares to ask - Was Max Schreck REALLY a vampire? Producer Nicolas Cage, actors John Malkovich and Willem Dafoe, along with out there filmmaker E. Elias Merhige pose this question in Shadow of the Vampire. As to be expected, this episode DOES have talk about the film... but there are tangents in between, you know the drill. Back next week with a massive episode, including our 2 friends from the always excellent Watch This Movie podcast. For now though, enjoy this 'un Cheers The MMC

Mary Shelley‘s Frankenstein
This week, we're examining Kenneth Branagh's adaptation of Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein." Branagh's done some highbrow kino in the past, but this one isn't too well remembered. Is it a misunderstood movie? A rightfully scorned piece of cinema? An excuse for Branagh to run around and throw levers with his shirt off? All this, and more will be revealed.

All Filler, No Killer Part III
Hey friends, So, we had an idea for a show, then realised it maybe wasn't going to fill up a great deal of time, and we'd have to tangent a bit to give one of our full length episodes, so we decided to go back to the well (AKA the easy way out) and continue with our (very popular) All Filler, No Killer series. So, yeah, it's all about the tangents, rants and discussions about anything that comes to mind. What's in this one? Well we discuss..... nah screw it, listen on, and find out for yourself. There's plenty of things covered in this one. The link to the download, for The Shaggs album discussed within (ok, that's one thing we talk about) can be found HERE

Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man
Hey friends, we're back with a new episode for this week. On this one, Stu, John, Eric Zaldivar and.... omg, the return of the Armenian madman Garo Nigoghossian, discuss the cult favorite - Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man. On it's 30th anniversary, we discuss if this film still holds up (despite it's initial panning from critics) and how it compares to other buddy films of that era. As usual, when Garo is on, it can - and does get a bit raunchy, so as is to be expected, this episode is NSFW. Enjoy see ya next week

Death Wish 4
Heeeey pond scum. What's up fam? This week Hunter, John, Stu and Eric Zaldivar look at what is arguably the best in the Death Wish film series - Death Wish 4: The Crackdown. Perhaps the fact that this film isn't filled with vile rape scenes from Michael Winner (he thankfully didn't direct this one) leads us to gravitate to claiming this to be the most enjoyable Death Wish film. Not a very long episode this one, very few (if any) tangents, just straight up Bronson talk. See ya next week. Enjoy.

The Parallax View
John, Hunter, Stu, and Eric discuss Alan J. Pakula's paranoid seventies thriller (and unexpected hayseed action flick) The Parallax View, starring Warren Beatty and his helmet hair. We talk about the movie's reputation, its forgotten aspects, and Stu's Zodiac-inflicted anger problem flares up.

Singin' in the Rain
This week, John and Hunter step out of the normal MMC comfort zone to talk about a musical, "Singin' in the Rain". Such an obscure pick! We talk about the film's humor!

What does it have to do with Saint Augustine? I don't know, listen and find out. Check the clips below to familiarize yourself, in case you've been living under a rock.
