  • From my theater days, day old corn, reheat it at home in a cake pan or similar, anywhere from 250-275 for 10-15 mins. I liked to pull it out every 5 mins and mix it around. Whatever you do, DO NOT put it in the microwave.

    Nobody has Escape From New York or The Fog in their top 5 Carpenters?

    Damn you for making me want to go peruse thrift shops & flea markets for vintage movie tie-ins. I drank many a Tang & Ovaltine out of the ET Pizza Hut & Return of the Jedi Burger King Glasses. The Pizza Hut Land Before Time puppets were pretty cool, I’m curious how that rubber has held up over the years.

  • Colin

    Jay throwing on the ol’ horror blinders again… sorry bud, the performances (and dialog writing) in The Void is terrible but – as usual – horror fans don’t give a fuck because it scratches their gore itch.

    How to Build a Time Machine

    April 12 at 9pm ET and PT on documentary Channel

  • Maik

    Wow, now that was a classically fast Cheel-editing-shot, just spurtin it out, spurtin it out~

  • Art_H

    ..well I´m at least happy that Frank even allowed a horrorfilm to be the main review this week. I suppose he has to throw Jay a bone from time to time as a sort of erectile improvement aid.

  • Peter Harrison

    Jay snorting the candy stick, into Born Slippy, then Frank’s Hurdy Gurdy Man joke, is the funniest bit of the Monster era so far! Great stuff.

  • pcch7

    Another classic in the bag. I think Jay is right, I think Frank and Nolan would hate each other. Would probably break out into a fist fight

  • pcch7

    Might have been said before, but the How To Build a Time Machine blu-bae will be region free, right?

  • Jr

    Every episode of Film Junk is the best day of your life.

    Loki did turn Thor into a frog and that would be a awesome joke in Ragnarok

  • pcch7

    Jay snorting was great, but since Frank is all about partying, I thought he’d join in as well. Sean is a father so he has a valid excuse

  • Frankie Knuckles

    I would have loved to join but I do have a a weird aversion/phobia of sucking things up my nose.

    Gladly would have injected if Sean had a syringe.

  • pcch7

    hahaha, now that would’ve been great

  • ReelJunkie

    @disqus_rlzBYmriQE:disqus From one Ghost fan to another, its with heavy heart that I break this news to you.

  • kent88

    Frankie doesn’t like the DA VINCI CODE scores? Crazy.

  • Tim

    Whenever I hear single adult guys sperging out over kid´s toys, stuffed animals, little figurines or any plastic trinkets aimed at children, it reminds me to definitely invest in those various silicone masturbators, cause i`ll be fucking rich in the future!

  • pcch7

    I was hoping it was GosT they keep talking about

  • Dstrbpx

    I remember Jay making several shady remarks throughout the years about partying Frank having had at least some contact with lil innocent uppers in some form or another. And if anyone knows secret Frankie, it´s Jay!

  • ReelJunkie

    You know what, now that I know there’s another GosT in existence… maybe they were talking about this GosT. I figured Frank’s a fan of the other Ghost… the Swedish metal group.

  • Taylor Gaston Wyatt

    It was an absolute corker!

  • pcch7

    it probably is Ghost. GosT is more synth/electronic.

  • Peter Harrison

    Every future candy package should also include various paraphernalia to account for creative infusions.

  • Colin

    I was losing my fucking mind during this. How the hell does this podcast keep getting better?

  • Falsk

    A couple candy comments…

    -I had the same reaction to the flavo(u)rs of Fun Dip. Really had to dig to get the cherry. Didn’t there used to be more?
    -It’s a travesty that store didn’t have blue Pixie Stix. COME ON.
    -I don’t know WTF this “rockets” shit is, but Smarties are usually smaller, but that was all they had in stock. Maybe candy has just changed since I was a kid… ?
    -My friends used to snort Pixie Stix for fun. I did NOT partake.

  • devolutionary

    As someone who got over sweet sugary candy at an early age, Rockets were among my favourite Halloween treats (sour/bitter powdery pills) cause they were still relatively mild. Guess they’re the same thing?

  • Falsk

    Wait a minute, did you see the website that image is from?

    http://orgjunkie.com/2010/12/rockets-and-smarties.html

    Org… JUNKIE!? What is going on…

  • devolutionary

    I sure did, yum-yum-yum. Inject it into ma veeeins!

  • Jr

    So if I send you a funnel, which one of you is going to butt-chug some Monster?

  • Falsk

    I’m just saying… I smell another podcast spinoff. Food Junk. Let’s do this.

  • Frankie Knuckles
  • Colin

    This year’s Junkies needs to incorporate a Day Old Corn award… something along the lines of the movie that was better the on rewatch.

  • LOBOCOB

    The corn segment and jay talking about the alf promotion are two of the reasons why I’ll kill myself when you stop doing the podcast ????

  • pcch7

    that’s definitely a buy

  • ReelJunkie

    What do you guys think of Tim Heidecker’s take on Bill Murray’s odd cult following and fandom?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jcVvKECzNKM

  • Lori Cerny

    I fully agree with both his points regarding Bill Murray and Star Wars.

  • Newtman98

    @disqus_rlzBYmriQE:disqus I swear to god I almost died at Pizza Hut the same exact way when I was younger. I was in elementary school eating there with my grandma and the cheese built up in my throat and I started choking. I looked at my grandma for help and quickly realized I had to take matters into my own hands and I reached into my throat and pulled the cheese out myself. I remember being humiliated sitting in front of a giant pile of throat cheese on my plate.

  • Craig

    If only! Imagine an episode diving into the sounds of Dark Synth like GosT, Perturbator, Carpenter Brut etc. Would be cream, dream, supreme.

  • ReelJunkie

    I can understand the Star Wars crazy, with it becoming a cultural phenomenon at this point. The Bill Murray one though still baffles me.

  • iammattz

    Amazing idea. +1 from me!

  • iammattz

    In a similar vein there could be a Monster Energy “award” for the film that was so bad you had to watch it at 1.5x

  • Samb

    Upvoted for “throat cheese”.

  • pcch7

    These are both great ideas

  • pcch7

    Would definitely cream. Loooove me some Carpenter Brut and Perturbator. Waveshaper is probably my favorite synthwave artist but for some darker stuff, Brut and Perturbator are fantastic. Daniel Deluxe too. If you haven’t played Furi, look it up

  • Kurt

    I dislike almost the entire notion of modern fandom. Be it horror, star wars, Marvel, Disney, etc. etc. Culturally, Comic-Con feels as toxic as Major League Sports at this point, and apparantly, on average, with about as much misogyny.

  • Kurt

    Uh…. JunkFood.

  • Falsk

    No way, man. You gotta stay on brand!

  • Bizzaro Nate

    In 1995 my family went to Taco Bell where they were promoting the movie Congo. On all the cups it had the movie’s tagline, Congo – where you are the endangered species. We must have spent a half hour trying to figure out how to properly read the tagline. They should have underlined, all capped or at least bolded “you” on those cups. I remember we kept reading it, Congo: where you are (?) the endangered species. Total gash crab.

  • ReelJunkie

    You all better pay attention to the Jude-anissance that’s taking place right in front of us. The man just bagged the role of young Dumbledore and he also got critical praise for his role in The Young Pope. Jude-anissance is real!

  • pcch7
  • Ha! I used to snort Pixie Stix back at my high school job to give me that “boost”.

    Also Jay, that feeling is called “the drip.” Have you not seen Boogie Nights?
