Junkfood Cinema: The Legend of Richard Matheson

By  · Published on July 8th, 2014

Last weekend, Cargill and I did something we had never done before. (Watch good movies?) QUIET YOU!

The good folks at Minneapolis’ CONvergence foolishly agreed to host the first ever live broadcast of Junkfood Cinema! Despite the ‘cast falling on July 4th, we sashayed around expectation and opted not to discuss Independence Day. Instead, we devoted our main topic to the late, great Richard Matheson. We chat about our favorite films based on his works as well as break down all three filmic versions of I Am Legend.

We finish things off with a few questions from the audience, (people actually showed up, crazy right?), which leads to a nearly orgasmic conversation about the Thai actioner Born To Fight. Seriously, that film makes Gymkata look like…Gym…nada. Burn.

If you weren’t able to listen live, please enjoy this cached audio of Junkfood Cinema Live!

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