Part one of our two-part 007 saga means that we get to determine who will direct/write the next James Bond outing after decades of mostly solid entertainment. Are the Nolan brothers available? Why does 007 saga's many portrayers need to be compared (like with Robin Hood and Batman) when it's all apples and oranges at the end of the day. Also, proof that they are different people under the same code-name given the many Ms, M...

The Flint spy films with James Coburn and equally whacky Matt Helm films with Dean Martin all get covered here thanks to Attack of the B-Movies co-host John Potoky. Why should every guy introduce these films to his pals, if not his kids? Do they play well to today's standards or are they too varied in terms of the crowd's interests?? And why were there not any Rat Pack gang co-starring in the Helm flicks??? How clearly are ...

Erica Wright and I get targeted by sharks who aren't amused by our jokes about such creatures. In all seriousness, how does this two-film franchise differ from other material like Shark Night 3D and the many Open Water/Deep Blue Sea type films? What plot twists actually configure into this mayhem?? What are the best kills in each??? And where would we rank this in terms of either an Action-Horror exercise or as just a shark fil...

The Omen was another thematic franchise that rivaled the likes of Hellraiser, The Exorcist and even The Prophecy as one saga that challenged one's beliefs, depicted supernatural occurrences that led to a bigger picture and loads of explosive mayhem that ultimately pays off. How has the original film aged? And which of the sequels do we actually recommend nowadays?? And was the remake actually worth checking out??? All here, bei...

Johnny and I sit back for a brief yet amusing chat about a bunch of films like Robocop and Unbreakable which made a name by being their own original superhero/comic book formulas without actually adapting a comic book. And after that, all bets are off as we mention other material that clearly feels like a comic despite no prior source material. Strap in as we unload!   #JackedUpReviewShow #Podcast #JURS #Podcasts #Superheroes #...

Gherman and I tackle the whole saga of Blade. How were we introduced to all three films? Does anyone remember the outrageously bad (yet well-intended) cable show continuation?? What can we predict with the reboot of the character now joining the Doctor Strange universe??? Jump in today to enjoy the blood-sucking, swordplaying descriptions! #JackedUpReviewShow #Podcast #Blade #vampirehunter #WesleySnipes #DoctorStrange #Superhero ...

Jonathan Mark and I tackle the 1986 gem that is The Hitcher, it's 2003 sequel I've Been Waiting and the 2007 atrocious so-bad-its-good remake. Why was Rutger Hauer perfect for this relentless bad guy role? Is the sequel actually worth checking out since it's got C. Thomas Howell returning as the hero?? Where does this rank in the unstoppable killer subgenre (which includes Duel and the Terminator films)???

No business like discussing the cyberpunk masterpiece that is the 1982 film Blade Runner, it's multiple recut versions, the book source material by Phillip K. Dick, the '90s computer game, it's unofficial sequel (by the same writer!) called Soldier, it's official sequel 2049 and other interesting facts. Did you know there was a Total Recall show that bore far better resemblances to this franchise? Did you know that ...

Dallas, TX based indie filmmakers, and friends of the show, Elvery Tren Peters and Terence T Brown discuss their original serial killer horror-mystery film, Janus, which is due out soon this year! I get to discuss why their film isn't bottom-of-the-barrel mediocrity and why the slasher in it is well-layered. What do they do different than most filmmakers when it comes to casting and assembling an invaluable crew? How do they av...

Cort (of Cinema Psyops) joins in the fun that is tackling the now-hard-to-watch, demented and still groundbreaking action-crime-mystery drama that is The Shield. We discuss how so many of the themes of corruption are true to today's messed-up real world, especially the ICE Agent storyline in the final season(!). How did this end up being the next level of dirty cops and blue line morality dilemma after Serpico, Training Day and...

B-movie loving expert and former film department advertising veteran Hugh Kenneth David joins me in assessing wether or not this angelic-demonic cult film series, The Prophecy, deserves more love or if it's just too goofy by today's standards. How awesome is the make-up in this? Why does it feel so much like Highlander at times?? And how inspired by this are films like COnstantine??? And more (of bloody course!). #JackedU...

Here, I get some insight from Simon Phillips, an established international actor and filmmaker of many genres (action, crime, horror, comedy) and conquering everything from the indie and video film market to making three different original web series that he later published himself on Amazon Prime. How did he get started to begin with? Who were his favorite actors to keep working with?? And what keeps him going after all is said an...

After you're done celebrating St. Patrick's Day for 2021, hop on in to hear my firsthand discussion with two UK horror filmmakers Adam Leader and Richard Oakes. How is the indie film and festival scene fare there compared to the U.S.? What are the first-hand opinions by critics and audiences for their new film HOSTS?? And what is their gameplan after getting their hands dirty with their explosive debut??? Sit back, enjoy an...

Erica Wright (of the My Horrific Life podcast & blog) helps me tackle the perplexing, moodily gothic and sometimes occasionally (yet surprisingly) romantic horror trilogy of Candyman films. How much is this really a Clive Barker production versus him putting his name on it? Is the second one truly underrated in terms of adding to the premise and being its own thing?? Is the third one just an X-Files episode with the title villa...
