What happens when a star from the XXX world decides to try to cross over into the mainstream? What motivates them, how successful will they be doing so, and just how many bad b-movies can they star in? We’ve decided to talk about when “porn goes legit” and our memories of first seeing names like Ginger Lynn, Traci Lords, and Veronica Hart in the credits of movies we didn’t have to sneak into a secret room in order to rent.
First we’re talking about what we’ve watched including a sequel that’s truly ‘corny’, some 70s crime by way of Walter Hill, a handful of questionable comedy choices, women bodybuilders that fascinate Josh, and much more!
As huge supporters of physical media (just look at our insane collections for proof), we here at GBW are doing a series of episodes that spotlight some of the boutique labels that are releasing the kinds of films we love to purchase, watch, and talk about.
This time out we’re talking Blue Underground. Headed by filmmaker William Lustig (Maniac, Vigilante), BU has been bringing us quality releases since 2003 and we’ve decided to each make top five lists of what we consider to be the essential titles you’ll want to own. We’ve got Australian weirdness, mannequin love, zombies, and even some mondo!
But first we talk about what we’ve been watching including Meryl Streep, a teen focused movie with a terrible title, Shannon Tweed, Patchwork, and much more!
