Episode 73: Drinking & Drive-ins - Lifeforce

Tobe Hooper Tribute!

This week, Faults in the Vaults pauses to bring you another installment of Drinking & Drive-ins - the segment where we kick back and revel in some of the very best cinematic exploitations from the heyday of the local drive-in to the birth of the multiplex and beyond.

This time, we pay tribute to the passing of another icon of genre cinema, the great Tobe Hooper, director of such classics as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 1 & 2, Salem's Lot, and Poltergeist! Kick back with one of our customized cinema cocktails and listen as we take a look back at his epic Sci-Fi/Horror space oddity, Lifeforce (1985)...

drinksJosh goes Digging Up The Docs to introduce the initiated to the world of theatrical music composition with Matt Schrader's Score: A Film Music Documentary (2016).

The Soapbox Rant takes issue with the erasure of established sequel continuity in film franchises.

Also in this episode, Josh takes ill while Mitch takes issue with David Lynch and Christopher Nolan, Kingsman reviews, and plenty of love for Scream Factory!

Episode 72: The Dirty Eagles Dare

PodcastNazi Hunters!

This week, Faults in the Vaults goes behind enemy lines to seek out and eliminate some Nazi scum. We're forced to court martial Robert Aldrich's The Dirty Dozen (1967) in order to team up with our Allies across the pond in Brian G. Hutton's Where Eagles Dare (1968).

The Mailbag sparks a conversation of that begins with mindless entertainment and ends with shameless self-promotion. This Week in Torrents, Josh digs up a rare 1974 episode of Bob Godfrey's Do It Yourself Film Animation Show, guest hosted by ex-Python, Terry Gilliam.

Mitch sorts through the frequent title changes and confusing history of Enzo G. Castellari's Italian cult classic, The Inglorious Bastards (1978) in another edition of Where in the World Cinema?

Also in this episode, altercations at the multiplex, killer clowns, earthquakes, and other misadventures...

Soapbox B-Roll #3: Roller Derby Rules, Bone Collectors, and Muppet Love

September schedules provide little room for movie watching, but the Soapbox Office rolls on. We once again break from our regularly scheduled programming to bring you Soapbox B-Roll #3!

B-Roll is an audio bridge of sorts between full episodes of Soapbox Office, featuring extra or expanded discussion left out of prior episodes in addition to brand new unedited conversation covering a wider range of topics and general day to day operations...

In this edition, the Juno/Whip It discussion continues as Josh and Mitch cover some missed talking points from last week's episode, Josh dishes on his busy schedule and latest short film collaboration, and Mitch recalls his visit to the new Slashback Video exhibition, upcoming Beyond Fest film screenings, and his unhealthy obsession with The Muppets.

The Mailbag trolls a hater of info-tainment and sparks more audio FLAC projects for Dr. Josh... Josh goes Diggin' Up the Docs this week to chronicle the rise and evolution of the Riot Grrl movement from the perspective of the woman who helped start it, Bikini Kill's Kathleen Hanna, in Sini Anderson's The Punk Singer (2013)!

Soapbox B-Roll #2: Parksploitation, Richard Dreyfuss, & Josh's Dead Stepmom

Due to Mitch's head-cold and Josh meeting with a plastic-surgeon about a nose-job, we again take a break from our regularly scheduled programming to bring you Soapbox B-Roll #2!

B-Roll is little more than a drunken-conversation between two jackasses that don't have the time to research a normal episode of the podcast. That's right, it's all Mitch & Josh.

In this edition, Mitch whines and complains about his health, working too much, and his inability to commit to alcoholism. Meanwhile, Josh wheezes and bitches into a microphone about dead family members, masturbating to his friend's movie, and having sociopathic tendencies.
