Junkfood Cinema: Warriors of the Lost Films

junkfoodbanner

For this second helping of Junkfood Cinema, Brian and Cargill first chew on a very important issue: ironic film appreciation. Too often films like those that will appear on the menu of this podcast are viewed through the lens of arrogant snark. A dividing line needs to be drawn.

In the second segment, your resident junk men serve up one of their favorite movies from one of their favorite forgotten genres: 80s Italian post-apocalyptic ripoffs. If you aren’t familiar with this strange, often entirely plagiaristic movement, then 1990: The Bronx Warriors is the flick on which to cut your teeth. A phenomenal frappe of Walter Hill’s The Warriors and John Carpenter’s Escape from New York, Bronx Warriors is a triumph of the weird, and an endlessly fun film.

You should follow Brian (@Briguysalisbury), Cargill (@Massawyrm), and the show (@Junkfoodcinema).
