Another Thursday, Another Show Done

Craig:

Well, that’s another show completed!

This week we reviewed the Twilight piss-take, Vampires Suck, a film that Dave and I walk out on 40 mins in. Truely bad film-making, but not to worry.

Most of today’s show was taken up with The Guardian‘s foolhardy, and occasionally downright insane, Top 25-films-in-each-genre suppliment.

We had the usual News and Future Releases features informing you of the latest in film-related shit interjected with the best that film soundtracks have to offer.

Also, the link on the Facebook page has changed, so for those who had a little trouble today, the experience should be a little simpler next week.

See you then!

Dave:

Week 2 of The Hudd, the Bad and the Ugly: Vomit, Illness and getting our Finch on!

So this week, we talked about David Fincher’s new movie The Social Network, Fincher himself, and whether or not Superman is a loner.

Our playlist for this week was as follows:

  1. Sunshine of Your Love by Cream, from Goodfellas
  2. Men In Black by Will Smith
  3. All Along the Watchtower by Jimi Hendrix, from Withnail & I
  4. Mrs. Robinson by Simon & Garfunkel, from The Graduate
  5. Bring Me To Lifeby Evanescence, from Daredevil
  6. Johnny B. Goode by Chuck Berry, from Back To The Future
  7. Under my Thumb by The Rolling Stones, from The Royal Tenenbaums
  8. Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want by She & Him, from (500) Days of Summer
  9. If You Want To Sing Out, Sing Out by Cat Stevens, Harold and Maude
  10. The Times They Are A-Changin’ by Bob Dylan, from Watchmen
  11. Bandera by Control Machete, from Crank
  12. Hey You by Pink Floyd, from The Squid & The Whale
  13. Mannish Boy by Muddy Waters, from Goodfellas
  14. Burn by The Cure, from The Crow

We both felt that the show didn’t rock as hard as it last week, which we are going to put down to illness and independent selections of music, rather than collborating. Next week, we will be back up to scratch and it will super-sexy and less vomity.

This week’s featured director is… David Fincher.

Craig:

Last week on the show, Dave charted Clint Eastwood’s latter career as a director for our ‘Featured Director’ slot.

This week I will be presenting a profile of film-maker extraodinaire, David Fincher.

From his tentative start at the helm of Alien 3, through Se7en and Fight Club, to the most recent zeitgeist feature, The Social Network, we will present a brief overview of the rise and rise of America’s finest contemporary film-maker.

Make sure you listen in 4pm Thursday; we will also be reviewing The Social Network.

Dave:

That’s right. I’m not going to pretend that I’m not jealous that Craig gets to cover Fincher, but I’m sure I’ll enjoy it anyway. Also, our Topical Top-5s will be movies based around loners, as inspired by the highly sexual The Social Network. Thursday, 4-6. Be there, or don’t. If you’re not, you lose.

Film News

Craig:

Here’s a collection of the film news from The Hudd, the Badd and the Ugly‘s first broadcast.

Sam Raimi to direct Wizard of Oz prequel.

The Spider-man director is working on a prequel to the 1939 Judy Garland classic. Broadway writer and Pulitzer prize-winner David Lindsey-Abaine is rewriting a pre-existing script.

Hollywood hot stuff, Robert Downey Jr. is in talks to star in the project, which is remains very much in the early stages.

Ghost Rider 2 is in the works

Not sure if anyone cares about this to be honest, but  Idris Elba is in set to co-star with Nic Cage in the sequel to the 2007 comic book flick Ghost Rider.

British actor Elba is developing a fairly respectable career with performances in the likes of American Gangster, 28 Weeks Later and 5-star TV show, The Wire. He’s also in Takers… but get too excited about that.

Kathryn Bigalow is courting Johnny Depp and Tom Hanks for Triple Frontier, aka Sleeping Dogs

There are very few details flying around about this project. We do know that allegedly Bigelow wants Depp and Hanks in two of the five principal roles.

It is anyone’s guess what the plot will be, but the ‘triple frontier’ is the tri-border between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil, and is known as a hotspot for South American organised crime. So I’m guessing it’ll run along those lines.

It will also be interesting to see Hanks and Depp on the same screen.

Speaking of Depp…

Depp is currently filming Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides around London, then he will start principal photography on Dark Shadows in February. Dark Shadows is based on a melodramatic TV series from the 60s about vampires, zombies, werewolves, monsters; all set around an old mansion..

Still with J. Depp…

This is by far the sexiest news I’ve heard in some time, but rumour has it that Depp is also interested in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter !!

The movie is to be based on a book by Seth Grahame-Smith, author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.  The plot centres on a young Abe Lincoln, who develops a thirst for vampire-stomping after his mother gets chewed up and spat out by a bloodsucker.

Tim Burton is attached to direct, so Johnny’s chances of starring are greatly improved.

Our first show, and what went down.

Our first show started about 10 minutes late due to confusion. We were waiting outside, the show before us were waiting inside for us to show up…one of those things. After this, it went without a hitch; here is the bangin’ tunes what we played:

  1. The Power of Love by Huey Lewis and the News from Back To The Future
  2. Jumpin’ Jack Flash by The Rolling Stones from Mean Streets
  3. Jesus Walks by Kanye West from Jarhead
  4. People Are Strange by Echo & The Bunnymen from The Lost Boys
  5. There Is A Light That Never Goes Out by The Smiths from (500) Days of Summer
  6. Superstition by Stevie Wonder from The Thing
  7. Where Is My Mind? by Pixies from Fight Club
  8. Girl by Beck from Knocked Up
  9. Wake Up by Rage Against The Machine from The Matrix
  10. Black Betty by Ram Jam from Blow
  11. White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane from Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas
  12. Starry Eyed by Ellie Goulding from Kick Ass
  13. Back In Black by AC/DC from Iron Man
  14. The End by The Doors from Apocalypse Now

Congratulations to Matt Waring and Donna Roberts/Rob Sutcliffe, the winners of our inaugural competition. They each win a cracking DVD prize.

All in all we were pleased with our first show, and hopefully next week will be even better. Listen in at 4pm (we’ll be on time this time round!) for some Social Network chat, another Topical Top-5 and even more film-related drivel.

Less than 41 hours to go….

Craig:

There is less that 41 hours to go before the very first broadcast of the eagerly anticipated radio show,The Hudd, the Bad and the Ugly!

Today we locked down the song choices and decided on the running order; looks like we may just get through this after all…

And remember: the cool songs are mine; the shite ones are Dave’s!

Dave:

We have 14 awesome tunes ready to go, we have reviews of some fantastic films, and a not-quite topical Topical Top-5s. It’s going to be awesome.
