Hit N Run Riff: TAMPOPO
WARNING: unless you plan to gorge afterwards under no circumstances should you watch this mister X riff on an empty stomach as he takes you on a tour of Juzo Itami’s ‘ramen western’-an ode to the joys of life, love, laughter, sex, cinema and culinary desires.
LNG – SCHIZO
Alex Jowski and mister X riff along with a proto-slasher that suffers from one of the genre’s easiest missteps – the thriller with an obvious twist: SCHIZO directed by Pete Walker.
Travel back to one of the last flicks that Jowski selected for the show (since that won’t be happening again anytime soon ~koff~)…

LNG – THE FINAL PROGRAMME
Alex Jowski and mister X riff along to one of the most ~ahem~ UNIQUE british headflicks ever made-THE FINAL PROGRAMME! GeekJuice could attempt to synopsis the movie here but we assure you that words cannot convey the contents within…it just has to be experienced.
Also features Toht and Sarah Douglas’ voluptuous natural boobage…
Hit N Run Riff: WILD PALMS (part one)
mister X riff/analyzes this oft-overlooked bit of mainstream weirdness – Oliver Stone presents WILD PALMS.

c) is experimental as F*CK

prepare for…Ralph Bashki’s COONSKIN
