Every week, a group of groovy film scholars and libation consumers known as the Saturday Night Freak Show (Brent, Tom, Colin, Sean and Travis) file into a subterranean screening room somewhere in Freakshow, IL where they witness sights & sounds undreamed of by mortal men. They emerge... changed, not quite the beings they once were. Good or bad, they will debate the merits of what they have just experienced for the entertainment of you, the listener.
This week, Brent brings us Tango and Cash
(1989), a buddy-cop movie that teams Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell in an action-packed romp that sees them framed, thrown in prison, and then setting out on an explosive odyssey to clear their names...and take down evil kingpin, Jack Palance. We talk about the glorious excesses of 80's action films, plus: the importance of monster trucks, stunt men, bad English accents, and the trials and tribulations of mounting a Gatling gun on your conversion van.
