Tremors stars Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward as Val McKee and Earl Bassett, two handymen living in the desert valley town called Perfection. They’re hoping to get to greener pastures but, before they can, they have to save themselves -- and the town -- from some new residents of Perfection, huge, voracious worms which they dub "Graboids."

We talked to director Ron Underwood and co-screenwriter and we're joined by , author of Seeking Perfection: The Unofficial Guide to Tremors

We delve into Fellini territory again with a discussion of Juliet of the Spirits. This 1965 film was Federico Fellini’s first foray into the wonderful world of color film. The film is something of a flip side of one of Fellini’s most popular films, . It stars Fellini’s wife, Giulietta Masina, as the titular character, a woman who’s at her wit’s ends when she finds that her husband is cheating on her. The film is something of a journey of self-discovery as Juliet works to unburden herself of her past.

Special Guest: Sir Christopher Frayling
Guest Co-Host: Josh Johnson

On our 200th episode we look at Sergio Leone's epic Western, Once Upon a Time in the West. Released in 1968, the film was a follow-up to his "dollars trilogy" and hailed as many as one of the best Westerns ever made. The film tells the story of four main characters: Harmonica, a man looking for Justice in the dying west, Frank, a gunfighter whose reign is ending, Cheyenne, a bandit, and Jill, a former prostitute who has come to the West with the promise of a new life.
