Strange Fictions - John Carpenter's In the Mouth of Madness On this week's episode of WatchThis W/RickRamos, Ibrahim & I continue our descent ito the World of Cinematic Horror. This week we take a look at One of the Greats - John Carpenter. After the financial and critical failure of The Thing (1982), Carpenter would find his career and project choices limited. He would regain some Hollywood stature with his adaptation of Stephen King's Christine (1983), Big Trouble in Little China (1986), and They LIve (1988), however the damage had been done and his career would never be the same. At this point we look at the later films of Mr. Carpenter. Although there are moments in most of these films, Carpenter would never return to the heights he once knew. In the Mouth of Madness (1994) is a noble failure, but a failing nonetheless. This week Ibrahim & I discuss why this is. Take a listen and let us know what you think. We hope you enjoy it.

Big Trouble In Little China movie review from the Salty Nerds have them perplexed at this awesome cult classic movie from John Carpenter and Kurt Russell. Kurt Russell plays the legendary Jack Burton who teams up with Dennis Dun and Victor Wong to fight the cursed Chinese sorcerer David Lo Pan (played by James Hong ) all the while romancing Kim Cattrall and dropping epic one-liners. Big Trouble In Little China is ahead of its time in many ways, and part of its box office failure was because the studio didn't know how to market such an off-the-wall movie. But John Carpenter has such a subversive take on typical 1908s action movies that this film is quite brilliant once you "get the joke." What is your Big Trouble In Little China movie review?

Welcome one and all to another Reel Film Nerds podcast! Today Matt and Mike try to review the 1986 classic Big Trouble in Little China. We failed miserably and instead chatted about National Cinema Day, is comedy dead, and Avatar. Well like we alluded to above Mike and Matt tried to chat about Big Trouble in Little China but they got off topic a bunch. This film inspired some of the off topic discussions so maybe we aren't completely off?  Big Trouble in Little China is a zany, fun, and hilarious film. It blends so many genres it probably should have its own. Kurt Russell is at his prime in this film, rocking a mullet, playing a truck driver, and kicking some ass. What's not to love? James Hong is hilarious and sinister as our main villain. Can you believe that guy has 454 acting credits to his name? WOW! Big Trouble in Little China is not politically correct and we seriously doubt you could make this film today but dang is it a fun ride. Mike Talent awards the movie 4.5 out of 5 Reels. Matt also really enjoyed watching it again but only awards it 3.5 out of 5 Reels. For next week's attempted review new releases are pretty thin again so Mike picked a Legacy film to review. The 2014 time jump thriller Edge of Tomorrow starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt. Thanks for listening and we will chat with you next week! If you have a film you would like Matt and Mike to review, email us at nerds@reelfilmnerds.com You can find us on all things social such as YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.  Why not join our Facebook Fan Group so you can yell at Mike and Matt from the comfort of your keyboard while talking about films.

Hi everyone! Well we had an interesting week, not just personally but also with the pod. Mike had some massive computer issues so we had to record this review twice. For Episode 286 Matt and Mike chat about the Ron Howard directed Amazon Original Thirteen Lives. Off topics today include $3 movies this Saturday, parents and getting old, and The Office. This is an incredible story based on true events that took place just 4 years ago in Thailand. Thirteen Lives is a really good movie with great acting, technically beautiful cinematography, and incredible directing. What really makes this film amazing though is the story. The amount of work, care, and volunteering that went into saving these young boys is just incredible. What makes it a miracle is the risk everyone took to save them, how they did it, and that all thirteen boys were rescued successfully. A Thai Navy Seal lost his life in the cave and another died of a blood illness after the rescue was complete. Those two lost lives are tragic but it is still just incredible that those were the only losses. Matt and Mike both agree Thirteen Lives is a very good film that is worth a watch. You can stream it on Amazon Prime video. The documentary on this miraculous story is available on Disney Plus. Your hosts both give Thirteen Lives 4 out of 5 Reels.    For next week's pod the new theater releases are pretty thin so Matt picked a Legacy film to review. The 1986 sci-fi classic Big Trouble in Little China. Thanks for listening and we will chat with you next week!

Phil & Jake are back to rank John Carpenter's 1986 film Big Trouble in Little China, the musical subgenre known as Bro-Country, and Baby Yoda on the List of Every Damn Thing.If you have something to add to the list, email it to list@everydamnthing.net (or get at us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook).SHOW NOTES: The kid in Madonna's Open Your Heart video isn't Leo Dicaprio, he's Felix Howard, who is now an A&R guy. Actors that we talk about include Kurt Russell, Kim Cattrall, Dennis Dun, Victor Wong, James Hong, Danny Trejo, He Huy Quan, Al Leong (here's his wedding announcement), Dennis Quaid, Harrison Ford, Jason Mantzoukas, Tom Cruise, Jackie Chan and Rodney Dangerfield. Other movies discussed include Everything Everywhere All at Once, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Overboard (which Phil thinks is really indefensible because Kurt Russell's character brainwashes Goldie Hawn's; “it's a Rapemantic comedy”), Minority Report, Dreamscape (filmed in Stockton, CA), Innerspace, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Golden Child, Friday, Caddyshack, The Matrix, Trading Places, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Flashdance, The Truman Show, The Wizard of Oz, Howard the Duck and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Jack Burton is a very influential protagonist, maybe even more so than Snake Plissken. He's sort of John Wayne as a buffoon. Bruce Willis' persona owes something to Jack Burton. If you want to hear an even more in-depth discussion of Big Trouble in Little China, check out this episode of the Blank Check podcast. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson owns the remake rights to Big Trouble in Little China and makes noises about a remake from time to time. John Carpenter's soundtrack (and especially the theme song) are a must-listen. Here's the New York Magazine article in which Jody Rosen first coined the term “Bro-Country.” Here's a history of the Country laundry-list song. Dr. Suess' pants with no one inside them are from the last story in the Sneetches book. “Cruise” by Florida Georgia Line is maybe the ur-text of Bro-Country. Or– going further back– in could be either “Honky Tonkin'” or “Jambalaya” by Hank Williams. Other songs discussed by include “Big Green Tractor” and “Dirt Road Anthem” by Jason Aldean, “Sand in My Boots” by Morgan Wallen, “Jack & Diane” by John Mellencamp, “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk” by Trace Adkins, “Dilemma” by Nelly w/ Kelly Rowland, “If That Ain't Country” by David Allan Coe, “That's My Kind of Night” by Luke Brian, “Friday” by Rebecca Black, “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight” by Hank Williams Jr., “If You've Got the Money, I've Got the Time” by Lefty Frizzell, “Friends In Low Places” by Garth Brooks, “Tulsa Time” by Don Williams, “Boys Round Here” by Blake Shelton, “New Truck” by Dylan Scott, “Beer With My Friends” by Shy Carter, “Beer” and “Turned Up On the Weekend” by Branchez & Big Wet, “American Pie” by Don McLean, “Do You Know the Way to San Jose” by Dionne Warwick, and “Santa Baby” by Eartha Kitt.

Welcome to episode 48 and today we have a special guest on with us. It's Eric's good buddy Salvatore!! I am sure you have heard him mentioned on previouse episodes and we even named a previous episode after him, but we never had him on! NOW WE DID!! He came and we spoke about one of his fave movies, the 80's cult classic Big Trouble in Little China. Now there was some heated discussions on whether this was a good movie or nostalgic, but Sal and I came out on top as winners of that argument. Why you say? Well, because I said so and that's all there is to it Eric and Derryk. So please enjoy our review and discussion of this flick.

Some serious trouble can be some serious fun! Directed by John Carpenter, Big Trouble in Little China is the fantasy martial arts action-comedy film starring Kurt Russell. Luke and Nathan take a trip back to 1986 to discuss all things related to the commercial failure but otherwise cult classic film. Kurt Russell plays hard-boiled truck driver Jack Burton, who gets caught in a bizarre conflict within, and underneath, San Francisco's Chinatown. An ancient Chinese prince and Chinatown crime lord has kidnapped a beautiful green-eyed woman, who is the fiancée to Jack's best friend (Dennis Dunn). Jack must help his friend rescue the girl before the evil Lo Pan (James Hong) uses her to break the ancient curse that keeps him a fleshless and immortal spirit.

In this episode we celebrate and explore the films of legendary film-maker, John Carpenter! Carpenter is such a unique director, a man who has always done things his own way, with a real talent for story-telling. The Planet 8 crew will start by discussing Carpenter's early life and how he became a film-maker.We move on to a discussion of the qualities that define John Carpenter's style. Obviously we'll talk about his work with his film soundtracks, but there are so many other aspects to a "John Carpenter film" - the 'slow burn' or building of suspense, his use of unusual camera angles or long takes, his distrust of authority figures, and so much more.As we go through Carpenter's style, we'll talk about his films, lingering on some of our favorites, including The Thing (we dedicated a whole episode to it -you can hear it here),  Halloween, The Fog, Escape from New York, They Live, and Big Trouble in Little China. But we also talk about some of his films that aren't on our favorites list too, just to balance things out.Without a doubt, Carpenter has an impressive and varied portfolio that includes some real classics. If all he had ever done was make The Thing, he would be a master, but he's made so many films that exhibit incredible skill and style. He's truly an amazing film-maker.For the Sensor Sweep this week, we sadly note the passing of Nichelle Nichols, famed for her portrayal of Lieutenant Uhura on the original Star Trek. Nichols was 89. Beyond the impact she had in her role as one of the very first African American women on TV who wasn't in a subservient role, Nichols went on to work with NASA to recruit women and people of color into the astronaut corps. A constant presence on the convention circuit, she was known for her warmth and beautiful smile. She will be greatly missed.That's it for this go round.

Hello, Films Fans! My apologies for my lack of pods lately, but I'm knee deep in pre-pro for my new short film, ROOKIE CARD, that I'm shooting in late-August. That has obviously occupied a lot of time, understandably, but I'm eager to get back on the airwaves and continue to talk all things Vagabond! Here's a sneak-preview of the next TEN episodes!-Skip and I will be breaking down a bunch of TNP films, namely - "Tango & Cash" (1989), "Big Trouble in Little China" (1986), "Over the Top" (1987), and last but not least - "ROAD HOUSE" (1989)! It's going to be freakin' awesome! -I will also be putting together a cluster of episodes on "How to Make a Short Film." Some of you out there haven't made a short yet, others have made dozens, but I promise you that both sides of the spectrum will get a kick out of my "How to" series. A little bonus? I plan on having some of the cast and crew on to discuss their experience on ROOKIE CARD, and also their career experience in this industry. Their stories are fantastic and are a great insight into filmmaking. -Lastly, I'm lining up a BIG interview soon, and hopefully that'll open doors to me going 1v1 with other actors and filmmakers of that era! Talk soon,Anthony La Pira
