Blood on the Tracks Episode 3: Heavy Metal Horror.

June 26th, 2017
00:0000:00

BotT.jpg

It's the third episode of Blood on the Tracks, and this episode comes as a result of a poll Lee ran on the TMBDOS! Facebook page. The people voted for Heavy Metal Horror, so Lee went down a much deeper rabbit hole than he initially expected. Most of these tracks come from films that do feature heavy metal as part of the plot, but in some cases it's just films that are well-known for their metal soundtracks/scores. So make a devil sign; tell Gene Simmons to fuck off, because he doesn't own the rights to it; and come bang your head with Lee for an hour.

Note: Lee mentions that the film "Demons" (1985) contained a score from Claudio Simonetti using the Goblin name. This is an error: Simonetti is credited as himself for his work on that film.

Lee & Daniel are joined this week by the fantastic Mike Murphy of the Badasses, Boobs and Bodycounts podcast to talk about the 2007 David Fincher-directed "Zodiac". How accurate is it? Is it overrated? Does it work as a film as a whole? All these things and more are mulled over in this lengthy episode, including if the Zodiac was, in fact, Mike's dad. Also, Mike gets to play the Movie God Game, and the hosts talk about what they've watched as of late and respond to listener comments.

Lee and Daniel get closer to the end of this extend look at crime films by checking out two more Poliziotteschi films. First-up, they look at the mostly forgotten slow-burn from Romolo Guerrieri, "The Police Serve the Citizens?" (1973). Then they check out the action-packed Enzo G. Castellari film, "The Heroin Busters" (1977). Much of the talk of the latter surrounds Fabio Testi's amazing wardrobe and how the British have sex. Also: does your motorcycle have airbags? You might wish it did after listening to this conversation. What they've watched as of late, and listener comments are also covered.

Bring-Me-the-Head-of-Alfredo-Garcia2-750x400.jpg

This week Lee and Daniel take a look at Sam Peckinpah's boozy crime/revenge tale, "Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia" (1974). Is it a late Peckinpah masterpiece, or is it just a mess? Also talked about: what they've watched as of late (including the new MST3K), and they read a couple of listener comments.

NOTE: there are a few audio glitches in this due to Skype being a prick. Sorry about that.

Lee and Daniel continue their look at crime films. This week they tackle the lonely, quiet getaway drivers of "The Driver" (1978) and "Drive" (2011) in a big episode. They also cover what they've watched as of late and Lee announces an upcoming podcast that will be debuting under the TMBDOS! Radio banner at the end of the month. What's it going to be about?

The gang is back together (briefly) to pay tribute to the late Bill Paxton, as Paul, Daniel and Lee relate their memories of his career on film. Before they bid Paul farwell, what they've watched as of late is also chatted about. Then Lee and Daniel get into the meat of the episode by talking about the thriller/neo-noir "A Simple Plan", from 1998, directed by Sam Rami of all people.

As usual with these intermission episodes, the original plans fell through for an official episode, so here's a small fix for those who expect an episode every week. This time out friend of the show Kit Power has come through like a superstar to give you all a verbal beat-down of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" (2016), and then he has much more positive things to say about "The LEGO Batman Movie" (2017). Lee is also on this saying some things of less importance.

Lee and Daniel are back to cover two crime movies featuring the vocal, acting, and visual talents of Ann-Margret: one unfairly-judged, in 1964's "Kitten With a Whip", and one almost totally lost to time in 1969's "Rebus". Also covered: what the hosts have watched as of late; listener comments; and they do get into a short rant about female models and sex workers, who were often used in many of the films of this era, dropped, and then forgotten about.

Lee and Daniel are back to check out some British criminal scum and other assorted characters in Guy Ritchie's "Snatch" (2000).

Finally sitting down to do an episode that was planned months beforehand, Lee and Paul chat about John Russo's "Midnight" (1982) & Joseph Ellison's "Don't Go in the House" (1979). Paul also chats a bit about his time attending the 2016 Living Dead Weekend and the people he talked to at the event, including Russo himself. This one is pretty loose and lacking fucks, as both hosts are drunk, but it's generally a pretty fun conversation, and they do try to review the films. What more can you ask for on a free podcast? NOTHING! That's what.

Lee and Daniel start off 2017 by looking at Curtis Hanson's epic 1950s crime picture "L.A. Confidential" (1997). A lot of time is spent talking about the characters, the way the action is shot, and if the film is a truly a noir or not. They also talk about the differences between the film and the James Ellroy novel of the same name, that it was adapted from. Also covered: what they've watched as of late (WARNING: there's some "Rogue One" spoilers) and a good deal of listener comments are read and responded to.

best2016.jpg

The year of 2016 is over, so time to talk about what movies the hosts liked best! Like in previous best-of episodes, Lee and Daniel come together to talk about the best films they've watched for the first time in the year, not strictly just films from that year. Lee failed to realise that he had a top eleven instead of a top ten. Daniel also has a short list of performances he enjoyed from first-time watches this past year. This is a very casual and lightly edited episode, not quite up to our usual shitty standards, but the conversation is quite fun. TMBDOS! wishes all of our listeners a happy new year. Stay safe. Be good. Well, not too good, but you get our drift.
