Treatment 164 – Escape From L.A.

BuscemiMarch, brings Women’s History Month, and in tribute we decided to make an effort to break-up the sausage-fest that is our podcast with a month full of awesome female guests! Taking the lead is Maggie Serota, from the Lowtimes Podcast, who knocks it out of the park with her choice for this week’s film!

Escape From L.A.

Kurt Russell chews some scenery in this incredibly camp sequel to the (much better) Escape From N.Y.! It features a cast of greats, like Steve Buscemi, Peter Fonda, Valeria Golino, Pam Grier, Stacy Keach, Bruce Campbell and MORE! It also features some of the dumbest scenes in cinema history!

This Week: Maggie flaunts her podcasting fortune, and drops some serious Carpenter knowledge! Matt is on his best behavior, but still slips in some miners!! Kirk drops some golden one-liners, but is barely audible!! And Doug IS Snake Plissken!!

Next Week: Be sure to subscribe on iTunes, so that you’re with us for special guest Abby Denson and her film choice, The Apple!

Treatment 32- THEY LIVE!

I guess it could be argued that John Carpenter films don’t count as schlock. Truth be told, we are all huge fans. In fact, if I have my way, we’ll certainly cover a few more. But, from a mainstream standpoint, films like this week’s episode are not mega-hits, so that’s good enough for us. Our choice for the first Carpenter film to cover?

THEY LIVE

It’s arguably a classic, definitely a cult classic. But it’s also a weird sci-fi movie featuring a 20 minute back-alley brawl, aliens that you can see if you wear the right sunglasses, some wildly over-the-top consumerist fear-mongering, and  “Rowdy” Roddy Piper. Sounds like fodder for our show!!

REVEL… in our constant derailing of the conversation to cover such topics as the Gargoyles cartoon, and Masters of the Universe!!

DELIGHT… as Doug reveals the surprise gift he brought for Matt!!!

WHORE… your way into our hearts to get some cheap publicity, like we give to several folks at the start of this episode!!!

All this and more, on this week’s incredibly long (sorry, we rambled) episode of Schlock Treatment! So, subscribe to the podcast today,  and check out They Live on netflix or in our store. Then listen to us yammer.
