Episode 86: Mechanocinephilia (with the Occasional Devil Cult)

0086 CarsThis week, dear listeners, we bring you an episode about Melissa’s obsession with car movies! We talk about car chases, car crashes, car explosions, and, of course, devil cults.

If you would like to drink along, you’ll need to go to a gas station in Wisconsin to pick up a bottle of Three Lakes Winery semi-sweet cranberry wine. But we won’t judge you if you substitute something within easier reach!

  1. I bought the Rifftrax of “Megaforce.” It was both worth the purchase AND something I won’t watch again any time soon…

    “Ronin” is a favorite of mine. Admittedly I have a soft spot for movies with Jean Reno, but I also particularly enjoy the kind of retro Euro-spy-movie angle, and how it really tries to hearken back to some of those earlier classics.

    I keep meaning to watch some subset of the Fast/Furious movies. One of these days!
