Your Weekend Justice #180: Capuchin Keggers at the Abandoned Laundry

It's Weekend Justice: the Internet's #1 audio trainwreck. It's the podcast that stars the crimefighting child-like miscreants that were once devised by Franklin W. Dixon to stars in books to be used to punish bad little boys and girls who spent too much time in front of the television. Little did the Stratemeyer crew know what they were unleashing upon the world...

    Stuff Bulletin: New Lord of the Jungle in the Works

    Johnny Weissmuller as Tarzan

  • Wanted to make sure you were aware: Amazon's Deal of the Day is the Blu-Ray boxed set of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy Extended Editions. Regular price is listed as $119.98--today only it's 64% off and going for $43.49. Savings of over $75. Not bad for a fifteen disc hi-def set. Snag it here.
  • New Tarzan is coming from Warner Brothers with Alexander Skarsgard at the lead of the pack to play the jungle lord and David Yates, who directed more Harry Potter films than anybody else, is on board to helm. The story involves him being sent to the Congo by Queen Victoria for a mission, accompanied by an ex-mercenary--who might be played by Samuel L. Jackson. I'm sort of amazed that in the wake of John Carter that another Edgar Rice Burroughs film is even happening. Source: Variety.

    Stuff You Need to Know: RZA to Direct the Original Khan

    Yes, sorry, we've been away...but we've been trapped down in this hellhole with rats, a huge hole in the floor and a pendulum. Long story. Anyway, here's the gist: a lot of sites try to turn a bunch of press releases into blog posts and articles. You wind up reading 500 words to find out some start from The CW is now the tertiary lead in Saw XIV. Not here. We distill all of that stuff into an info smoothie that you can suck down in one sitting and get on with your life. Enjoy.

    (If you do enjoy, stuff that we cite here as up and coming or of interest--if you're going to buy it from Amazon anyway, if you do it through our links, we get kickbacks. Thanks in advance for your support.)

  • Speaking of which, the Amazon deal of the day is for the Alien Anthology on Blu-Ray for 64% off. That's just $25 for a sweet, sweet set. Normally it's $69.99. Only available today and until they run out.

    Wayhomer Review #136: Skyfall

    Daniel Craig as James Bond in Skyfall

    Episode #136 for Skyfall, in which our protagonist talks about that difficult Bond second album, finds himself surprised and pleased by the third act, and honestly wants Daniel Craig to stick around as long as he damn well pleases. Just so we're clear on that.

    A Conversation With Joe Dante

    Joe Dante

    For over four decades Joe Dante has been one of America's most prolific film directors. Emerging from Roger Corman's cadre of talented filmmakers in the late 1970s, he quickly established himself as a versatile director who could work within several genres while oftentimes employing a regular group of returning actors from project to project.

    His filmography is nothing short of amazing. Consisting of both cult and commercial hits including Piranha, Rock n' Roll High School, The Howling, Police Squad, Gremlins, Gremlins 2, Innerspace, Looney Tunes: Back In Action and Matinee. Dante also has worked in television, directing episodes of The Twilight Zone, Amazing Stories, CSI: New York and Hawaii Five-O. He also was a Creative Consultant and director for Eerie Indiana.

    32 Days of Halloween VI, Movie Night No. 32: You Know What Time It Is

    Duane Jones from Night of the Living Dead (1968)

    Year Six of 32 Days of Halloween has reached its close. Our special thanks to everybody who's contributed, suggested and just enjoyed this madness that we've been doing for six long years. As always, the final movie night goes to Night of the Living Dead, the original accept-no-remakes zombie film from the mind of George Romero classic. The film that pretty much defined the genre we all know and love. Without this film, you get no Shaun of the Dead, no Walking Dead, and none of your fun zombie video games. So show some respect, grab some popcorn and enjoy.

    Maybe we'll do this again next year.

    32 Days of Halloween VI, Movie Night No. 31: The House That Dripped Blood

    House That Dripped Blood

    For a final night before we reach the Big One, it was hard to pick what to go with. Having hit most of the classics in one form or another, I opted for a cast that provided a serious bang for your buck. And hey, The House That Dripped Blood is an Amicus anthology film as well, so you get multiple stories in one. And with a cast that includes Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Jon Pertwee and Denholm Elliott...you are getting a great amount of bang. Not to mention it's scripted (mostly) by Robert Bloch. And do remember this: rubber vampire bats on strings mean never having to say you're sorry.
