Sorry!

Our humblest apologies, dear listeners but our technical woes have returned and our show will be late again this week. Hopefully we will get to the bottom of it this time and sort it out once and for all. Sorry. Again.

174: SFFCH – Repo Man [1984]

174 Repo Man

Jamie and Rich get their testosterone on this week talking about cars, punks, aliens, vaporisations, conspiracies and midnight movies as they discuss cult sci-fi comedy film Repo Man. Join them as they wonder what happened to Emilio Estevez, plant love and kisses on Harry Dean Stanton, the punk soundtrack, the ‘wackiness’ of it all and trust them to find the Welsh trash-lady reference.

173: SFFCH – Hell Comes to Frogtown

173 Hell Comes to Frogtown

We never go too long on Spoiler Filled without shoehorning in wrestling somehow and my, does ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper provide the ‘perfect package’ this time round with Hell Comes to Frogtown, a post-apocalyptic, cult B-Movie from the late Eighties. Or should we call it a soft-core porn parody of Mad Max? Well, at least it attempts to be progressive in a movie including: amazonian-esque warrior nurses, governmental chastity devices, all the wrong reasons to not rape someone and the mystery of the Dance of the Three Snakes.

171: SFFCH – Triangle [2009]

171 Triangle

171 SFFCH Triangle [2009]

Ant plucks out this cheap and standard looking horror film from deep down in the film bin this week called Triangle from 2009. Expectations are low from the poetically three-pointed panel of him, Rich and Jamie, but is there something more mysterious and mind-bending waiting in store for them. Come and join them all try and wrap their brains (and maybe intestines) around this twisty tale which includes such flotsam and jetsam as: slapstick axe-throwing, numerous Shining references, symbolic seagulls, perplexing paradoxes and surprisingly very little mention of the Bermuda Triangle, weirdly.

170: SFFCH – Dick Tracy [1990]

170 Dick Tracy

“Ooooo, look at all the pretty colours!” This, we highly suspect here at Spoiler Filled HQ, is how most people ended up watching this week’s film, the live-action adaptation of Dick Tracy from 1990. But perhaps we are soon to discover the hideous nature of the beast laying below. In this discussion, we discuss such things as: how there is such a distinguished cast in such a questionable movie, Madonna’s gangster voice, neon noir and all those god-damned melty faces.

169: SFFCH – The Legend of Bagger Vance [2000]

169 Bagger Vance

The Legend of Bagger Vance [2000]

We don’t know if he’s mentioned it before, but Will Smith isn’t Rich’s favourate actor. So it was a bit of a surprise when he brought the SF Crew The Legend of Bagger Vance to scrutinize. Could this be the film that softens his attitude towards him…? It would be quite the task for a film about golf, but come and see the result as we discuss such fodder as: Hollywood’s Magical Negro, the extremely spiritual world of golf (apparently), the fundamentally horrible romance and many, many rich, white people problems once again! And all this for just 5 dollars, guaranteed!

168: SFFCH – Grabbers [2012]

168 Grabbers

Ant takes us on a wee trip to the Emerald Isle this week, a booze cruise some might say, as the ‘SF’ crew prepare to take on (with rudimentary weaponry) the comedy-horror B-Movie Grabbers. It’s a bit of Edgar Wright-meets-80’s-Spielberg-meets-Father Ted in this slightly obscure film from the recent Renaissance in Irish black comedies which includes some superb drunk-acting, Richard Coyle being all charming, Russel Tovey being posh(?), decapitations a-plenty and alot, ALOT of bad language from the Spoiler Filled Gang.

167: SFFCH – Sudden Death [1995]

167 Sudden Death

ALL HAIL THE SPOILER FILLED KING!

Our most prolific director returns this time to truly cement his place as lord and master of our special type of movies here at ‘Spoiler Filled Film’. This will be our fourth look at the work of Peter Hyams and his second collaboration with The Muscles from Brussels himself, good ol’ Jean-Claude. No timey-wimey antics this time around however, just pure and simple Hollywood action, violence, deliciously dastardly villains, politicians in peril and penguin strangulation.
