TMBDOS! Episode 111: “Stagecoach” (1939).

Lee and Dan are continuing down the classic western film trail with what many consider to be the film that really breathed new life into, and also elevated the western genre from 'B' grade to 'A'. This episode it's John Ford's "Stagecoach" (1939). They talk about if it truly is a classic, how it made John Wayne a star, and the influences it had on films to come after it. Also covered: listener comments and what they've watched as of late.

Note: there were some audio issues when this was recorded. Lee has managed to edit around most of them, but at times the conversation might feel a tad disjointed, and a few sports of audio break-up might be heard. Sadly, it's also about ten minutes shorter than it originally was.

All three hosts are back for this episode to give what might be both their most interesting and insightful yet drunkenly chaotic episode of TMBDOS! Starting off a short series on classic westerns, Daniel, Paul, and Lee take a look at two early examples of revisionist westerns with "High Noon" (1953) & "3:10 to Yuma" (1957). Much of the discussion revolves around how similar the films are and which one is better. Of note, Daniel's reading on "High Noon" drastically changes Lee's opinions on the film. Listener comments are also covered. Saddle up, this one's a long and bumpy ride.

BotT.jpg

Lee is back to dig into one of his favourite film genres of all time, especially when it come to soundtracks and scores: the Italian crime/Poliziotteschi film genre. Ultra violence, lurid sex, and all sorts of musical styles abound from these films, and Lee tried hard to trim down the playlist to some of his all-time favourite tracks. So load up your guns and take the law into your own hands as society breaks down around you, in corruption and violence. Can you come out the other end clean? Who cares when the music is this great? Note: at one point Lee credits "Death Proof" instead of "Death Wish" as an influence on the genre, and, of course, he butchers Italian pronounciations left and right. But you expected that, right?

This week the whole gang is back to take a look at William Friedkin's adaptation of "La Salaire de la Peur"/"The Wages of Fear", that being 1977's box office bomb "Sorcerer". Was it rightly dismissed back when it was released or did production problems and a little film called "Star Wars" kill the film's chances out of the gate?

Lee is back for Intermission #21.

Then he ends off sorting through his horror film collection and giving 12 humble suggestions for double feature watches for this Halloween night.

Lee and Paul continue their horror-filled October of 2017 by looking at the Bob Clark-directed classic "Deathdream" from 1974.

Lee and Paul are on board to provide the first bit of bonus content for October 2017. They take a look at the bloody slasher film "Nightmare" (AKA "Nightmares in a Damaged Brain") from 1981. Does this video nasty still have an impact? How does it rate alongside similiar films like "Maniac" and "Don't Go into the House"? Is it a piece of shit like Tom Savini claims, whenever he's denying his involement on the film? All of this and slightly more!

Lee and Paul kick off October by covering the other two parts of Lucio Fulci's so-called Gates of Hell Trilogy, "City of the Living Dead" (1980) & "The Beyond" (1981). Including-in "House by the Cemetery" (which was covered here on the podcast two years ago), is this really a trilogy? Which is the best film of the three? Do any of these films make any sense? The hosts drunkenly ponder these questions inbetween several cuts from Fabio Frizzi's amazing scores for the films. They also talk about what they've watched and purchased as of late, and cover a plethora of listener comments.

Back for more Lovecraft-inspired weirdness this week, Lee and Daniel jump headfirst into the kinky, goo-covered Stuart Gordon adaptation "From Beyond" (1986). There's lots of conversation about how effectively the film adapts and branches out from the original source material, and if it manages to effectively balance the BDSM elements and special effects with Lovecraft's central themes. Lovecraft's own fears and thoughts on race and sexuality are also briefly talked about. Aside from that, some opening talk about what the hosts have watched is also included.

Lee and Paul are here (but not really sober) this week to kick off a run of episodes looking at H. P. Lovecraft-inspired films. In this episode they check out the somewhat overlooked "Necronomicon" (1993). Does this horror anthology manage to live up to the lofty term "Lovecraftian"? Regardless, is it any good?
