The Forgotten Flix Podcast: Ep. 003 – What Would Bruce Campbell Do?

Bruce CampbellIn this third episode, hosts Joel and Jason have a heartfelt, in-depth discussion about two Bruce Campbell movies: Army of Darkness and Bubba Ho-Tep.

Of course, we discuss many other Bruce movies along the way. And in this week’s Forgotten Flix Recommends section we breakdown “6 Movies Starring Bruce Campbell You Must See”!

Here’s a quick breakdown of the show:

— After a brief introduction, we get into a discussion of Army of Darkness (1992).

— Next, we delve into Bruce as an ass-kickin’ 70-year-old Elvis Presley in Bubba Ho-Tep.

— Then, we get some listener feedback from Darrell, host of the Nothing’s On Podcast (see mention below) and another listener who may not completely agree with us about Mr. Campbell’s awesomeness… and wait till you hear what we thought about that!

— And finally, Forgotten Flix Recommends “6 Movies Starring Bruce Campbell You Must See”. Plus, a sneak peek at what we’ll be covering in our next episode. Here’s a hint: What do Peter Weller andΒ Miguel Ferrer have in common besides both being fantastic actors?

Tune in to find out…

No specific podcasts or bloggers were mentioned in this episode; however, a good friend of the site and show, Darrell, left us a voicemail. We were able to get it into the show, but it came in after we recorded so we weren’t able to mention it.

Well, that’s the beauty of show notes!

    Wow! This episode rocks and Jason is the coolest. πŸ˜‰ Seriously. Fantastic job on the episode big J. I can’t think of anything more fun to do than TFFP.

    Thank you so much for doing this! I am a huge Bruce Campbell fan and love all of his stuff. I must admit I kind of wanted to smack that lady who said he needed acting lessons and you guys were right, Tornado did come out before Twister. I know there are a lot of people out there that think Bruce is in a lot of really bad, cheap movies but at least they are original.

      Hi Sabrina! Really glad you liked the episode. I agree that he seems to be drawn to really original material. This has been especially true of his directing work. And as to people who aren’t big fans like us, that’s fine, too each his or her own. Bruce, like fine wine or gourmet cheese, is an acquired taste. πŸ˜‰

      Thanks again for commenting. We appreciate all feedback!

    Today I loaded my mp3 player with two, yes two podcasts from you guys and took a looooooong walk in the woods. The decision to walk in the woods turned out to be a good one, since I laughed out loud more than once or twice… or thrice for that matter!! πŸ™‚ You guys ROCK!! That was 2 & a half hours of pure, unadulterated entertainment!
    BTW Joel… “Running Time” is actually available on DVD. It’s added as an extra feature on the Limited Edition DVD of “Evil Dead”. You know, the one shaped as the actual Book of the Dead?
    And yes… I’m a huge fan of Mr Bruce Campbell, in case you ever doubted it! πŸ™‚

      That’s awesome! Thanks Peter! I’m glad you liked it and I hope you’ll keep on listening. If you ever get a chance, call in with some feedback as we’d love to put you on the show!

      And thanks for the heads up on RUNNING TIME. I used to have that version of EVIL DEAD, but never noticed it!?! I actually recorded it off the IFC cable channel a few years back. Good stuff! Thanks again.

        It’s on an extra disc in a cardbord cover… wait wait!! USED to have??!?

        And you KNOW I’ll keep listening and of course also call in too. Just try and stop me! πŸ™‚

          I know, I know… when we started having kids the collection started getting cleared out… *hanging head in shame as I walk away– the closing theme to the Incredible Hulk T.V. show playing as I go*

          P.S. Of course, one of my many goals is to build that sucker back up! Hell, that’s more than half the fun. πŸ™‚

            I actually have had to rethink the way I store my collection ’cause I just don’t have the shelves to store it on, since I also have a large collection of books. You can check on FB for some photos of said collections… A very good friend of mine said as he looked at some of the titles on my shelves: “Man, you need help… no, seriously… you need help. How can you like these??”
            And, hey… don’t hang your head in shame, ’cause as you said, it gives you infinite pleasure when you find those bad boys again.

            P.S. The Incredible Hulk tv show you say?? That was actually one of the things my friend shook his head at… πŸ™‚

            • January 23, 2011 at 6:41 am

              That definitely used to be a problem for me too. To say I was a pack rat would be an understatement, but over the years I’ve been going more minimalistic and find that it makes life easier. I blame technology, of course. I think Netflix has satiated my incessant need for movie consumption. And while I still have a large number of books, my Kindle is making the library shrink too.

              P.S. The Incredible Hulk TV show is nothing to be ashamed of! πŸ™‚

    I was wondering what is the name of the music that plays before the end? Is it from a movie?
