Episode 16: Drinking & Drive-In's- A Bucket of Blood

Buckets of Blood Abound!

Drinking & Drive-In's returns once again and this time it's bringing with it a pairing of delectable cocktails and one very entertaining and under-praised black comedy from the King of Exploitation himself, Roger Corman. We're filling up A Bucket of Blood from 1959, starring the great Dick Miller!

The Mailbag is emptied again as the guys cull through listener mail and afterward, Josh & Mitch shake a finger at the act of hater shaming for The Soapbox Rant. The new segment, Diggin' Through The Doc's is unveiled! Each week we're going to highlight a lesser known documentary. This week's was Trumbo suggested to us by our friend Andrew Heaberlin!

Once again, it's Josh's turn on Slipping Through the Tracks, and for it he showcases Tom Waits' soundtrack to Jim Jarmusch's Night on Earth. In this week's Total Recast, the guys take noted "That Guy" Dick Miller and ponder some What If... casting alternatives that could have rewritten cinematic history!

Episode 15: Outsiders Rumble

Rumble Fish PodcastFocus on Ford Coppola!

This week, Faults in the Vaults brings two troubled youth pictures head to head, both being back to back productions directed by Francis Ford Coppola and written by S.E. Hinton. We're talking of course about The Outsiders and Rumble Fish from 1983!

The Mailbag was bursting with backlogged listener emails, so Mitch & Josh dive in to field questions about the dark cinematic offerings and pretend to have their moment in the Actors Studio spotlight. For This Week in Torrents, Josh digs up an old episode (5/20/81) of the Carson era Tonight Show featuring the late, great George Carlin and Richard Pryor.

Josh & Mitch shake a finger at those who attempt to dole out special privilege and attempt to scrub away those unfortunate celebrity transgressions of the past in this week's The Soapbox Rant. For his turn at Slipping Through the Tracks, Mitch chooses to highlight a Philip Glass score from the otherwise forgettable serial killer thriller that was 2004's Taking Lives.

And in Total Recast, the guys pick from the cast of The Outsiders and ponder some What If... casting alternatives that could have rewritten cinema history!

Episode 14: The Goonies Squad

Childhood Classics!

This week, in Faults in the Vaults, Josh & Mitch take a look at a pair of adolescent adventure films! They're foreclosing on the Richard Donner/Steven Spielberg collaboration, The Goonies (1985) in order to join up with Fred Dekker's The Monster Squad (1987).

Elsewhere, Mitch dives into The Mailbag to discuss guilty cinematic pleasures. Josh cracks open the Book of the Dead to deliver an Evil Dead fan restoration for This Week in Torrents. Vitriolic opinions are cast on the nature of corporate cannibalism in The Soapbox Rant.

Josh extols the beautiful and inventive score for Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes by Hans Zimmer featuring Diego Stocco on the Experibass in Slipping Through the Tracks, while the guys then attempt to rewrite cinematic wrongs once more with a Total Recast!!!
