Podcast 64 — Ghost Rider 2

Nicolas Cage relights blazing skull dude

Hello everyone. You have fallen into the sonic blast radius of The Horror Movie Show, hosted by the ever-quivering Jerry & Mark. This episode, the feckless duo fearlessly dissect Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. The first instalment in this comic-book-inspired series was silly; can the sequel surpass it? Jerry then expounds upon Jennifer’s Body. And what a body it is — that Megan Fox is passably attractive, I must say, even with suspected toe-thumbs. Jerry also, for no apparent reason, recommends the mockumentary Paul McCartney Really Is Dead: The Last Testament of George Harrison, a wacky look at both the Beatles and conspiracy theories. Following that, the boys each have some strong opinions about Dave Foley‘s Monster Brawl. “These are the stinkers I know I know, these are the stinkers I know….”

To wrap this edition of The Horror Movie Show podcast, Mark & Jerry discuss the 2011 documentary Corman’s World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel. Long considered the master of the B-movie (The Raven, Death Race, 1955′s The Fast and the Furious), Roger Corman deserves more credit than that. Corman’s method of hiring up-and-comers to write and direct movies on shoestring budgets and tight deadlines was a proving ground for dozens of creative types, from Martin Scorsese and John Sayles to Tommy Lee Jones and Jack Nicholson. This is an entertaining documentary any movie buff will love.

The title of the Coen Bros. movie with J.K. Simmons as the CIA manager is Burn after Reading. Now feed me, Seymour! Feed me!
