Episode 40: He's My Daemon Familiar

There's no theme this week, as Rhea is hard at work co-writing and starring in a Christmas musical! She and Destiny spend some time chatting about the junk they've been absorbing lately, such as Mad Ron's Prevues from Hell, heavy metal sexism, and the cinematic "genius" of Neil Breen. There's also audio viewer mail and teen movie talk! Look out for the cold hand of Kurt Cobain's ghost in this one, kids!

Spoiler Alerts for the Following: As far as we remember, nothing was spoiled to ruin this week! Is that a first?

Corrections: The name of the Neil Breen film that was probably screened at the Butt-Numb-a-Thon was Fateful Findings (see video above). Cilla Black did sing a cover of "Love of the Loved." The song they danced to in She's All That was called "Rockafeller Skank." John Woo's first American film was Hard Target. Proof we've never seen Mondo Cane: We can't pronounce it.

Episode 39: Science In Your Zombies


This week, the Badland ladies freak out over the new Star Trek teaser trailer, and talk ZOMBIES! Learn why science and zombies don't mix, why vampires ain't all that, and balk at their ambivalence over the upcoming Hobbit film! They also read a nice fan email and deal with the sound issues involved with recording an episode in an Asian fusion restaurant on a Friday night.

Spoilers for the following:
Haven
Downton Abbey Season 2
28 Days Later

Corrections: The name of the composer for a good chunk of Godzilla films was Akira Ifukube. Here is the track they use in Tokyo! (It's from a Godzilla v Mothra fight). In Freaks and Geeks, "Jesus is Just Alright with Me" is an old gospel song, but the version that show was referencing was by The Doobie Brothers, not Foghat. Dan O'Bannon only wrote Dead and Buried.

Episode 38: Cry More Paul


After such a long hiatus, the internet herself begs the Badland Ladies to come back! They discuss all the movies watched while away, including Skyfall, Harold and Maude, and Lincoln. Rhea and Destiny also come to blows (almost) over Beyond the Black Rainbow and Black Sabbath (the Mario Bava movie, not the band!) After catching up,it's time to go through every single movie directed by JOHN CARPENTER and give an opinion or two. Tell us how much you missed us: badlandgirls at gmail dot com!

Spoiler alerts for the following:
The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Big
Harold and Maude
Cloud Atlas
Dark Star
Beyond the Black Rainbow
Black Sabbath (1963)
All the Daniel Craig Bond movies
Every movie directed by John Carpenter, especially Dark Star

Corrections: Britt Ekland was the Bond girl in Man with the Golden Gun. She is not a ye-ye girl but Rhea swears she did some French pop song (she is probably wrong). The awesome song on Let It Be Naked was called "Don't Let Me Down". When talking about bug sex and Green Porno, Destiny said the title of the movie Microcosmos wrong. Also, Debra Hill and John Carpenter may not have been married. The internet is back and forth of this, but we at least know they dated in the '70s. Night of the Demons came out in 1988.
