Lee and his brother Scott are back this week for another film commentary track for a film that otherwise probably would never get one. Join them as they watch Bill Brame's 1974 Blaxploitation diamond-in-the-rough "Jive Turkey". What's a better waste of you time than to watch a public domain Black gangster film, set in the 1950s, that's obviously filmed in 1974? How can you deny yourself a film that depicts the intense struggle for control of the numbers game, a psychotic tranny hit man, and so many N-bombs that you'll no doubt have to feel white guilt for the rest of your life? Find it on YouTube, Daily Motion or on any number of Mill Creek 50-film bundles and tune-in, won't you?

It's commentary time! Yes, for the first time on the podcast, we enter the world of terrible fan commentary for a movie that you can pop into your player of choice.
Turn down the volume, turn on those subtitles, and then listen to a couple of unprepared fools talk about the film as you watch.
For this first outing Lee is joined by his brother Scott to eat chips loudly and talk about the 1990 Tom Savini remake of George Romero's "Night of the Living Dead". If you go into this expecting a Criterion-level discussion of the film, you'll be sadly let down. Hell, this might get the facts wrong, and it might not even qualify as a bad Rifftracks commentary, but fuck you, we did it anyway. If you do listen to it, we hope you enjoy. Cheers.
