For this episode, we’ve decided to pick our favourite musicians who took a turn at acting as well. We’re not talking attempted ‘starmaking’ vehicles like Britney Spears in Crossroads or Mariah Carey in “Glitter” – we’re talking musicians who actually made a go of stepping in front of the camera and had success doing so. It’s a varied list filled with names you might (and might not) expect.
First up, we talk about what we’ve been watching and this time we both report back from seeing Free Fire on the big screen, wax figures that come alive to kill, a movie gets “gonged”, ex-NFL player Howie Long tries to go all action hero, Josh has issues with Ferris, and much more!
Jackie Kong has directed such films as The Being, Night Patrol and the cult classic Blood Diner. We got the opportunity to sit down with her before a midnight screening of Blood Diner to talk about her career, the longevity of her films, and the struggles of being a female filmmaker in a male dominated industry. Along the way we have a few laughs, hear a few stories, and get an exclusive on her ongoing “Blood Diner Insanity Tour”.
After the interview be sure to stick around to hear us talk about what we’ve been watching and, while it might not be the best of films, there are giant robots, golf course mayhem, werewolves, and much more!
