Mike is joined once again by Chris Hughes for one last show until Chris Mann returns to the show to discuss a "classic" Crown International Picture: Tomboy. Tommy is a woman who has a gift for cars - fixing them, driving them, and even building them - but everyone around her thinks that perm stands in the way of her success and she'd be better off putting on an apron. How does Crown handle a situation like this? Listen and find out.
Mike is joined by Hughes (from the Dolemite episode) to discuss the 1983 "classic" Joysticks. Do kids in the 80s spend too much time playing with their Joysticks? Did Disney get a name from the Lion King from this movie? Why would Joe Don Baker star in this film? All these questions and more are answered on this week's episode of The Grindbin.
While Chris is away on tour Mike is joined by Corey G from the 1980's Movie Graveyard podcast to cover a direct-to-video action movie with one of the most unique pairings: Roddy Piper and Billy Blanks (Yes, Tae Bo Billy Blanks). Does Billy love his sister a little too much? Is Roddy the worst cop of all time? Find out on this episode of Grindbin.
Mike is joined by a special guest co-host Chris Hughes to break down one of the greatest - if not the greatest - Blaxploitation films of all time, Dolemite (1975). Rudy Ray Moore stars as Dolemite, a pimp who is released from jail to stop a rival gang leader Willie Green from selling guns drugs to the neighborhood kids. This film features everything: comedy, music, horribly choreographed fight scenes; it's got it all.
Chris and Mike sit down for an interview with independent filmmaker Paul McAlarney to talk about his completed films, future projects and film making in general.
You can find Paul's first feature "Honky Holocaust" on Troma Now - Troma Entertainment's streaming service - and coming soon on Blu-ray. You can see The Ungovernable Force on the festival circuit and Paul's other films can be found on YouTube and Vimeo.
