May 31st, 2020

Even if someone has never watched an Italian Western, there's at least a good chance they've heard the soundtrack or score from one. While Lee has featured some tracks from Italian Westerns before on the show, he's never done a dedicated look at the genre. This will be part one of three shows attempting to cover the scope of music that came from the Italian Westerns. Episode one is focused on selections that have vocalists on the tracks singing a song of some sort (note: the typical chorus of unintelligible chanting found on many Italian Western scores does not count in this case). As mentioned before, in some cases, you'll encounter a track that has been featured on a previous episode, but the majority of these shows will be featuring new material. Also, although he states on the episode that he was trying to keep this episode within the usual confines of an hour runtime, he quickly discovered the folly of that, as there is too much great music to play. Expect all of the episodes in this series to be as long as they have to be.

Lee and Daniel steal an old piece of shit boat and go on a mission around India this week, covering "The Sea Wolves" (1980). What does this WWII men-on-a-mission film, full of over-the-hill actors, have to offer to the genre if anything? How closely does it stick to the real-life events it's based upon? Is Roger Moore a better Bond here then in the official Bond series? Or is he just a horny serial killer? All of this and more, including what the hosts have watched recently is covered.

Lee is joined this week by two of his regular co-hosts on the Cape Sh!t podcast to talk about John Hughes' "Weird Science" (1985). Is it a classic of the 1980s? Does the film hold up at all, or is it just one big, dated misfire, full of rape, racism, and bad jokes? Somewhere in-between? The hosts ponder this and also tackle listener comments and talk about what they've watched as of late.

Lee, Greg and Kerry try and stay warm and one step ahead of their enemies, while touching upon what makes "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" (2014) one of the better entries in the MCU. The more low-key, yet deeper plot, the character work, and the action scenes are talked about, as well as if the Winter Soldier is worth a damn as a character.

It's time for another intermission episode, as Lee is joined by Paul to talk about two somewhat obscure slasher films that spent a lot of time on the shelf before getting anything approaching a proper release. First up it's the killer-in-the-woods slasher "The Final Terror" (1983), featuring a lot of future stars, and then they check out the supernatural slasher "Superstition" (1982), featuring a bunch of people who went nowhere after their work on the film.

Lee and Daniel try not to be responsible for any war crimes this week as they dig into Oliver Stone's semi-autobiographical anti-war film, about his experiences in Vietnam, "Platoon" (1986). How well does the film hold-up? Does it suffer from being a 1980s Oscar-bait film? Or is it possibly the best film about the Vietnam war, even if it's flawed? Is Charlie Sheen any good in it? All of this and more is covered.
