After a Halloween break Lee returns for more Blood on the Tracks. This month Lee looks at the soundtracks and scores from films that are about films, film making, or at least are in some way connected to this theme. He had a lot to sort through to make a playlist, so there probably will be a part 2 down the road at some point.

This week Lee and Daniel are joined by Matt Simpsun, major domo of the Compañeros Radio Network, which features the great podcasts Movie Melt, Get Soft with Dr. Snuggles and Songs on Trial. Together they all take a one-way trip on the Devil's train as they talk about "Beyond the Door III" (AKA: "Amok Train") (1989). Italian rip-off films and the state of Italian genre films in the late 1980s; Bo Svenson as a satanist; creepy Eastern Europeans; strange virginity tests; Disney+; and boobies and gore on 1990s A&E; "Commando 2" & "Tango & Cash 2"; are just a few of the topics brought up in this conversation. Also, as Matt is making his first appearance on the show, he gets to play the MOVIE GOD GAME; listener comment are responded to; and the hosts all talk about what they've watched lately.

Lee and Daniel are back to talk about two films suggested by listener Jeff Williams, featuring sexy and dangerous females. First up it is the classic film noir "This Gun for Hire" (1942), and then they move on to talk about an interesting B-western, "Woman They Almost Lynched" (1953). Thinly veiled fetish material; proto-feminism; cat fights; Confederate soldiers portrayed as heroes in westerns of this era; and the recasting of a modern remake of "Woman..." are just a few of the things brought up, as well as listener comments.

Lee, Daniel and returning guest host Jack finally finish off their look into Sherlock Holmes adaptations by looking at the Guy Ritchie-directed and Robert Downey Jr. & Jude Law-starring "Sherlock Holmes" (2009) & "Sherlock Holmes: a Game of Shadows" (2011). This much more informal than usual chat goes in and out of talking about both films at the same time. Some of the topics covered include casting choices; the films going in hard on the ambiguously gay themes; Guy Ritchie's slow-mo and gimmicky look into Holmes' brain; Christopher Lee's hairpiece (yet again); and a joke Daniel and Jack share that almost breaks Daniel and just leave Lee confused. Also: a listener comment and a bit of a talk about "Mindhunter" on Netflix.

October 28th, 2019

capeshit_title_phixr.jpg

Daniel, Lee, Greg & Kerry sometimes talk about this singular entry into the MCU when they are not talking over each other, and not being drawn down drunken rabbit holes by Lee. Tony Stark out of the suit and talking too much; suits built just for shitting out of; the validity of how they did the Mandarin; and why the fuck the rest of the Avengers are not around, are just a few of the many things talked about in this disaster of an episode.

Lee, Daniel and returning guest host Jack are back for their second-to-last entry in this extended look at Sherlock Holmes adaptations. First up they return to Rathbone with "The Woman in Green" (1945), and then they pretend they know what they are talking about in regards to "Without a Clue" (1988). Noir; hypnotism; serial killings; getting me-too'ed by Watson AND Holmes; shitty Sherlock tv; and some recasting ideas for both films are topics that are touched upon, as well as listener comments.

This week Lee, Daniel and the returning guest host Jack Graham are breaking the general TMBDOS! rule of at least covering one movie on an episode, and are continuing their look at Sherlock Holmes adaptations by talking about three of the Jeremy Brett tv episodes. This time out they talk about "The Norwood Builder" (1985), "The Musgrave Ritual"(1986), and "The Devil's Foot" (1988). Robert Forster; "WKRP in Cincinnati"; "Star Trek" jokes; sexual awakenings; trigonometry; M.R. James & Poe references; and Holmes tripping balls are just some of the things brought up, as well as listener comments and what the hosts have watched as of late.

Lee and Daniel are back once again with their friend Jack Graham to ponder more Sherlock Holmes adaptations on the big and small screen. First up it's the Hammer Horror adaptation of "The Hound of the Baskervilles" (1959), directed by Terence Fisher, and starring Peter Cushing, André Morell & Christopher Lee. Then it's two more episodes of the Jeremy Brett Holmes series, where we cover the apparent death and return of Holmes with "The Final Problem" (1985) & "The Empty House" (1986). Was Hammer suited to adapt Holmes? Why is Moriarty bullshit? Can Watson write a fight scene worth a shit? Dog's bollocks? All this and more is covered in the episode. The hosts also talk about what they've watched recently and listener comments are read.

Lee and Daniel are once again joined by their friend Jack Graham to talk about some more Sherlock Holmes adaptations. First off they get a bit deeper into the character's drug use with "The Seven-Per-Cent Solution" (1976). Then they take a break from the Rathbone series, covered in previous episodes, and take a look at the very first episode of the Jeremy Brett series, "A Scandal in Bohemia" (1984). Racist barons; douchebag kings; train chases; sword fights on top of said trains; terrible BBC Sherlock; and Moriarty slipping the D to Holmes' mom are just a few of the things brought up this time around, as well as listener comments and what Lee has watched recently.

Lee and Daniel are joined this week by their friend Jack Graham, making his return to the podcast to help them tackle more Sherlock Holmes adaptations. First up it's another Basil Rathbone film, with 1943's "The Spider Woman". Then they look at one of, if not the first, Holmes film to really take a much different look at the character, with Billy Wilder's "The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes" (1970). Holmes' sexuality; racism and propaganda in the Rathbone films; bald Christopher Lee; and the Loch Ness Monster are just a few of the things talked about in this episode. Listener comments are also covered.

Lee and Daniel start an extended series looking into film adaptations of Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories. First up, they check out two examples from the 14-film series, starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce, that one could argue really captured the imagination of the general movie-going public and cemented Holmes and his stories as a solid well to keep going back to for film adaptation ever since. The two films are "The Hound of the Baskervilles" (1939) & "The Pearl of Death" (1944). There's talk of Holmes being a dickhead; the smashing of fine china; Rondo Hatton; the new Dark Crystal series on Netflix; and listener comments are responded to.

Part three of Lee's look into Canadian-made - or at least shot-in-Canada - horror is here. There's a lot more tracks and background info on the musicians and the films than in the previous two shows, and Lee has tried to better span the scope of Canadian horror, from the early days to more modern times, from low budget to much larger productions.

TMBDOS! Episode 175: “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” (2008).

August 26th, 2019

fsm.png

Lee and Daniel finish off this latest round of sex comedies with "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" (2008). How does this Judd Apatow-produced film stack up to his other comedies he's been involved in? Can Lee, after drinking far too much during an earlier podcast, be able to stick to his format, form coherent thoughts, and manage to even remember what the title of the film is? Daniel, at least keeps on track in this one. Listener comments, and what the hosts have been watching as of late, also get mentioned.

Daniel, Lee, Kerry, Greg, and Greg's better half, Agnes, talk about "Captain America: The First Avenger" (2011). How does it rank with the rest of the MCU? Is it a good origin story and set-up for "The Avengers"? Does it tackle WW2 and the Nazis with any level of depth? Does it really have to? Plenty is covered in a short time on this one.

August 12th, 2019

pinballspotting_-_PinballSummer_24.png

Lee and Daniel are back to tackle yet another sex comedy. This time it's another low-rent Canadian production, "Pinball Summer", from 1980. A themed sex comedy, much like "Joysticks", does it manage to deliver on its premise of arcade-based entertainment? Does it give us enough T&A on top of that? If not, how would Lee, as much more sleazy producer, sex this stuff up? Is the film even worth watching at all? Short shorts; bare male asses; pranking rich people; and not bothering with an ending are all things that are talked about in what might be one of the show's most off-the-rails episodes, as what the hosts have watched, and listener comments, instantly turn into a shit show before they even get to the film review.

Lee and Daniel take a trip to California to check out the jazz scene and discover the proper volleyball moves that will help them feel up young beach bunnies in "California Dreaming" (1979). Living in cars for a month; surfing; being understanding of your Aryan lunkhead boyfriend; and Seymour Cassel being far too into his daughter's sex life are just some of the things talked about in this far deeper-than-expected sex comedy. Listener comments and some initial thoughts on "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" are also talked about.
