Episode 38: Drinking & Drive-ins- ThanksKilling


Faults in the Vaults again gets side-lined as we journey once more to the year 2008 to bring you yet another pairing of devilishly delectable cocktails and one very strange movie about a murder-happy turkey! We're talking of course about the one and only, Thankskilling!

A dig into The Mailbag proves to us that we need to start checking our Facebook messages! Also in this episode, Josh apologizes for doing something unspeakable to Mitch's mother, and we talk of the pure beauty that are purposefully made, bad movies. This week's Diggin' Up the Doc's is about the wonderful Martin Scorsese documentary The Last Waltz and Mitch sings a little bit of The Band.

Title CardIn the bottom of the show, the boys try their bloody hand at making ThanksKilling movie-themed drinks! Mitch chooses to invoke the powers of the gin infused drink The Dead Turkey while Josh chooses a play on the classic Bloody Mary titled, Gobble, Gobble Bloody Fu*ker!

Meanwhile, in our Soap-Bit, we address the weird sexuality of turkey's and all about what we're truly the most thankful for, our sponsor Raleigh Soapery!

So join us as we take a look at the fourth edition of Drinking and Drive In's!

Episode 37: The Fifth Element of Adele Blanc-Sec

A Lesson on Besson!

This week, Faults in the Vaults imports its entertainment straight from the mind of popular French filmmaker, Luc Besson, as we extinguish The Fifth Element (1997) in order to breathe new life into The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec (2010)!

A visit to The Mailbag has Mitch & Josh recapping social media love and the new horror anthology, Holidays (2016). This Week in Torrents has Josh offering up his personal restoration of a rare and forgotten documentary, Screamin' Jay Hawkins: I Put A Spell On Me (2001) by the late documentarian, Nicholas Triandafyllidis.

Josh visits the local multiplex in order to go Diggin' Up The Docs with Jim Jarmusch's new Stooges retrospective, Gimme Danger (2016). The Soapbox Rant points a finger at those who proclaim foreign film elitism.

Also in this episode, great new holiday deals from the good people at Raleigh Soapery, post-birthday shenanigans, more celebrity elbow-rubbing, and Boglins galore!

Episode 36: Maverick Heart

Passion of The Gibson!

This week, Faults in the Vaults puts Mel Gibson back into the spotlight as we bring down the axe on the rebellious Scots of Braveheart (1995) and instead ante up to Western charms of 1994's Maverick. A visit to The Mailbag allows Mitch & Josh to wax nostalgic about the lost art of the film novelization.

This Week in Torrents offers up The Incredibly Strange Film Show, a BBC Channel 4 produced - Jonathan Ross hosted showcase of cult filmmakers such as Sam Raimi, George Romero, and the late Herschell Gordon Lewis!

The Soapbox Rant takes aim at the culture of celebrity apologists. Mitch goes Slipping Through the Tracks to honor the life and career of prolific composer James Horner with a look back to his work on Ron Howard's fantasy adventure Willow (1988).

Also in this episode, new holiday deals from the good people at Raleigh Soapery, talk of the failings of our electorate and our own bodies, wrap parties, and Other Fish.

Episode 35: The Thing Snatchers

Classic Horror Remakes!

This week, the aliens are back again in Faults in the Vaults, so we're torching John Carpenter's The Thing (1982) for the greater good in order to make way for Philip Kaufman's adaptation of Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978).

This Week in Torrents details the origins and brief history of laserdisc video games --- which incorporated pre-recorded live-action video or animation --- such as Dragon's Lair, Space Ace, and Cliff Hanger!

Title imageJosh takes a turn Slipping Through the Tracks to highlight the Ragtime renaissance and the work of Marvin Hamlisch as he reinterprets the music of Scott Joplin on the classic caper film, The Sting (1973)! Also in this episode, new holiday deals from the good people at Raleigh Soapery, Halloween recaps, more interactions with comedy icons, and further talk of bad theater etiquette...
