This week it's a Rodriguez/Tarantino TRIPLE FEATURE with three adrenaline-fueled roller coasters that are guaranteed to spill & thrill!
If you haven't yet had the pleasure, DON'T
waste any time: get yo ass in gear, call up your fellow Bad-Asses
and set up a late-night screening. For all the feeble attempts at putting women up front, these movies manage to tell unbelievable stories with more believable female characters than most.
'Cause you haven't experienced AWESOME til you've had a full dose of the GRINDHOUSE
OH, and Conky says this week's secret word is: BATMAN

GUEST HOST: JAS (1st Segment)
This week we bring yet another brand new series that has been on the back burner: the celluloid exploits of our favorite television actors. Quite a list to choose from in this category (Oh, we're so excited for what's in store for future episodes). We begin with one of the first shows that we Sluts bonded over.
Behold, our 1st Tribe of the Boob Tube: The Solomons
3rd Rock from the Sun was easily one of the best late 90's comedies and gets so little recognition nowadays. Often over-looked or downplayed, it featured a clever story line & an out-of-this-world cast of actors that we couldn't resist.
P.S. We forgot to compare the charisma of John Lithgow to the subtlety of Sam Neill as a lead role. Here is a link for a Lithgow moment that some may have missed. If you want skip to minute 2:30 (for those who may not like the host/show itself), that is all the intro you will need.

Since we excused ourselves from the proverbial festive smorgasbord back in December, what better time than now to deliver a Holiday-themed episode? It's our greatest sale yet, this WHOLE episode is FREE!!! Download it as many times as you like.
While we may have chosen them simply to help abate the deplorable heatwave that racked Seattle the past week (man, it was up in the 80's!! Even over 90 once!!), these have long been chilling in the icebox of our minds. True, they're a motley mix of flavors, but that's what makes 'em so good.
Think chilly thoughts, snip the top & have a Murray Murray Christmas.

SHPADOINKLE, hungry listeners. Meat means different things to different people. There is an agreement that we probably shouldn't eat each other, but what if it meant life or death?? We looked at 3 examples of how this may have or might yet happen. These are rather far-fetched, so it makes them easier to digest. Let's just hope that none of these instances come to pass again in large quantities (or portions, if you will).
Just 'cause it's taboo don't mean it ain't tasty... Kids, don't try this at home. Or anywhere else.

Happy Birthday America. We didn't know what to get you, since lately you've been kinda indecisive in what you want. We even looked for your registry on Amazon or Bed, Bath & Beyond, but to no avail.
So, in lieu of your typical red meat, explosions & sub-par beer, we thought we'd get yo something you'd treasure. The gift....of song. Well, word song anyway.
Join us as we trek into Heartlandia (not a real place, so don't waste your Google coupons). These are some crazy flix, so we get into some heated topics. None of these things are absolute in movies or in life, so remember that while you are listening to things that may put you off your pie for a moment. It's worth it to think honestly about what we are as people of the world and how close we are in hopes, dreams, and sometimes shortcomings.
Mmmm... humble shortcake with debt-whipped cream. Eat it in moderation. Speaking of humble, we took on a large slice as the U.S. Men's Soccer Team were bumped out of the World Cup this week. So was Belgium after they beat us, so they get a slice as well. We are now official citizens, officially, of the Netherlands as they kick to victory. Good luck to all who remain.
P.S. to the HUGE fans of Flight of the Navigator & it's soundtrack, Matt put the correct song in this week for Chris to make eggs.

The time has come for each of the Sluts to step forward and submit their candidates for the category of: Flicks from Childhood.
Round 1 - Chris fights to validate his young days with movies that have maybe, just maybe lost some potency. Don't worry, Matt will have his day under the microscope. Then we'll do one defending movies we both adored as kids. Can you guess? Can we? The power is YOURS!!

2 Hammers, both alike in dignity and claw; in fair trunk, where we lay our scene. This is a very controversial remake episode, largely from people that gave up before seeing it. Spike Lee was not the 1st name to pop into one's head when considering Oldboy.
Your honourable hosts were in a unique position to confirm or dis-confirm the allegations: We had not seen the original!!! We flew this episode blind (though we did open our eyes when we watched the movies, it's a metaphor), and what a ride through 2 different looks at the same plot. Both are in fact worth your time we have discovered. Now it comes to you to be brave, trust in our vision for a world where both versions can coexist.
Thor would be proud. So would Chop Top.

We return. With a wood chipper, Hashem, and me hat. Another cornucopia of Coens. Fargo most folks have seen & just about everyone has heard of it. The others are either less common or untapped by the public. The storytelling is always potent, so a true fan should see all of their movies (except Intolerable Cruelty). If you like the bros, A Serious Man is very personal to them. If you don't, then you might want to skip this episode. It's alright, we cover a lot of ground - peruse our archive for things more your flavor. After all: old doesn't stop it from being awesome.

The sun shines, the days grow longer & the Sluts just keep on talking...
It's our Summer Blockbuster Spectacular sequel: so naturally, there's more violence and nudity and not really.
No monsters kings, this week it's dragon queens. Oh, and mutants with a penchant for groin & toilet humor. Maybe we're mixing our movie metaphors. Just listen, pretty sure we got it all right on the track.
We may come back for a third installment of these.
Either way, grab yer swim trunks & head with us to Waterloo
'Cause we all know, the boys & the girls are doin' It... Goin' to waterslides, Dude!

GUEST HOST: JAS (Prometheus segment)
We return from our whirlwind tour of Seattle Crypticon 2014! Worry not faithful listeners: we didn't burn our fuse out there alone. In fact, this week, we think our episode knows which way to go. Can you hear us recording in our tin can?
They come in all colors, shapes & sizes and (most) are frakkin AWESOME. In true Cinema Sluts style, we went with three rather eclectic selections.
Make sure the air lock is closed tight, brace for the G's, and watch your feet for cracks in the pavement. Next week our 2nd round of Summer Blockbusters! With NO SPOILERS!! We would not do that to you..

It's the week of Crypticon 2014, so we just ran to the nearest theater & let ourselves loose.
In the 1st installment in our 2014 Summer Slut Movie Spectacular, we lead off with some spy action, a bit of web slinging & good ol' destruction of public property, JAPANESE STYLE.
We'll return to our previously scheduled program next week. Same Slut Time (roughly), Same Slut Channel. Site. Whatever. Til then: ENJOY!
What did we learn in the horror prep sessions? A: Pulse movies (Japan & US) - meh, though Japan had better messages. B: Amer Horror Story, neat; The Killing, not really horror but pretty good drama. C: C. Thomas Howell in 1986 is better than 2 actors in 2007 (check out the 2001 sequel with him, Jake Busey & Kari Wuhrer - not bad, plus it's on Netflix so it's easy).

2014 is definitely not pulling its punches. Not even halfway thru the year and we've already lost some of the greatest: Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Shirley Temple, Harold Ramis. And just a few weeks ago, another great was robbed from us, far too soon: Bob Hoskins.
It wasn't until we were compiling our dossier on Hoskins that we realized just how much he had done and how little of his work we had seen. We're hoping to remedy that, but in the meantime, we chose some of our favorites to highlight the talent of this truly gifted actor.
We marveled at cartoon crossovers, trembled at the sight of a scary mob boss, & laughed until our eye patches hurt. So, we tip yet again another Mtn. Dew in salute to a glorious career. Bob, fun. Hello Bob - Bye Bob. Sonofabitching Bob

You can't always tell the bad guy by the black hat. Sometimes, it isn't human at all. Here are a few examples of the adversity we face that has no face. Spanning about 15 years, these flix have different approaches to storytelling and heroism. Certainly, they are abby normal
in who they make the antagonist bad guy.
Now when you think of Phillip Bailey
, you're not gonna think of Phil Collins: you're gonna think of Phillip Seymour Hoffman, & Helen Hunt, & Bill Paxton, & Dustin Hoffman. Why Dustin Hoffman? You gotta listen to find out. Collect episodes & win!! S & H apply. Some assembly required. Not legal in all states. Use only as directed.
You have more 3-word titles to sling at us? go ahead - firstname.lastname@example.org. Cinema Triforce on Facebook. Lions, Tigers, & Bears? Got it comin'. What else ya got?
