Movie Meltdown - Episode 51.2
In this episode that may have "crossed the line." We sit down to discuss - SAVAGE DAWN".
First we listen to actor William Forsythe's memories of making this movie. Then we attempt to comprehend the film we just saw. Which leads to random thoughts that include…
"Colossally bad, that's the only way to describe this."
“They have a Sheriff and a deputy, a redneck, drunk deputy - and a midget”
“Who the hell did they make this movie for?”
“The final blow is a titty twister.”
“This is the pinnacle.”
“Even the movie was tired of itself.”
“This is epic bad!”
“There’s a lot of street fist-fights going on, like this is some sort of Clint Eastwood orangutan picture”
“Lance did a bunch of jumping around”
“I’m surprised half the actors in here didn’t break something”
“This is like a monster mash of bad movie actors”
“This was pretty fun!”
“There’s a lot of weird not-so-underlying homo-eroticism”
“I think they were making it up as they went along…”
“Nothing they do makes one lick of sense”
“People, you are missing out!”
“As far as bad, bad movies go, it’s pretty awesome!”
“I don’t even want to talk about it.”
Regardless of what the rest of the gang thinks, Bryan's final take on the movie…
"Savage Dawn is awesome. A drive-in classic unlike anything I've seen in years."
Join us for this memorable review.

Movie Meltdown - Episode 49.2
We found out this fact as we watched this week’s Sofa Theater feature: Dark Country. Hopefully (or maybe not?) you’ve already seen this movie, because we have to spoil the so-called twist just to discuss this movie on any level. And so we do, as we delve into this wanna-be film noir, with impressive visuals and lots of problems. But can director and star Thomas Jane save this movie??
“The movie in itself wouldn’t work if people were intelligent and made smart moves.”

Movie Meltdown - Episode 47
Movie Meltdown's rockin' ukulele special!!
- In this, our new running feature on documentaries, we take a look at Rock that Uke, directed by Sean Anderson and William Preston Robertson. This film takes a look at the interesting characters that feel compelled to play the ukelele. And the new music revolution that begins as they find ways to amplify their music and create - punk rock ukulele!!
Between songs by Uke til you Puke, we sit down and talk to director Sean Anderson about his path into film, meeting some unsual ukuleleist, and getting to work with Holly Hunter (sort of).
Just playing the ukulele for a lot of people was an act of strange kind of defiance!
