Kulturecast #62

Mike was back on the Kulturecast to talk about the oddball Westerns The Proposition and El Topo with John Lein and Chris Stachiw.

Geek Juice Radio #189

Continuing the Geek Juice Media Director Series, Mike joins Alex Jowski and Mister X to examine the second half of Brian De Palma's career.

Special Guests: Lance Henriksen, Holt McCallany, , Mark Verheiden
Guest Co-Host: Brad Jones

One of the most hated -- and possibly most misunderstood -- sequels around, David Fincher's Alien³ had contentious production history. We'll attempt to unwrap the behind-the-scenes turmoil and on-screen mayhem along with Brad Jones, the Cinema Snob.

We talked to Vincent Ward who brought the idea of "monks in space" to the game and the late John Fasano who worked on a few drafts of the Alien 3 script. We also spoke with actors Lance Henriksen and Holt McCallany about what it was like to be on the set. And, we're joined by Mark Verheiden who wrote the incredible Dark Horse comics Alien series.

Errata: The baby alien came out of Kane, not Ash, in Alien. The less-than-stellar special effects of Alien³ were a blue-screened rod puppet, not CGI. The "Assembly Cut" on the Blu-Ray Quadrilogy does not contain new shots but only cleaned-up audio.

Special Guests: Mark Gallagher & Anthony Kaufman

We're looking at The Limey - the 1999 film from director Steven Soderbergh. The film tells the tale of Wilson (Terence Stamp) - a recently released career criminal from the U.K. who heads to L.A. to figure out what happened to his daughter, Jennifer. Along the way Wilson teams up with Eddie (Luis Guzmán) and Eliane (Leslie Ann Warren) as he seeks to get revenge from her former boyfriend, famous record producer Terry Valentine (Peter Fonda).

It's a tale of loss, revenge, the 1960s, and more.

Guest Co-Host: Adam Spiegelman

Marvel Comics' vigilante anti-hero The Punisher has been adapted for the big screen three times. We look at the third incarnation from director Lexi Alexander, Punisher: War Zone. This candy-colored symphony of violence stars Ray Stevenson as the titular "super hero."

We're joined by Lexi Alexander to talk about the making of and reaction to the film. We also talked with the creator of The Punisher, Gerry Conway. And, as a surprise last-minute interview, we've also got LBJ himself, Doug Hutchison!

We're joined by Adam Spiegelman of the Proudly Resents podcast to discuss the film and list our favorite (and least favorite) Marvel movies.
