Each episode John L Robinson (occasionally known as the Rev. Johnny Lemuria) and Katalin Justice review and discuss the weirdest movie we can find. We attempt to make sense of it and, if failing that, be at least mildly humorous about it.
||Cinematic Pig’s Feet #28- The Forbidden Zone||There are some movies that, by all rights, should not exist. I don’t mean that they are bad movies. And I don’t even mean that the circumstances that would allow them to be produced are so rare as to be…||4/24/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||Cinematic Pig’s Feet #27- Buckaroo Banzai||I’m a fan of Buckaroo Banzai. I’m a fan of modern updates of pulp-era heroes and tropes, like Doc Savage. I’m a fan of Ellen Barkin, Peter Weller, John Lithgow, Jeff Goldblum, Christopher Lloyd, Clancy Brown, and Vincent Schiavelli. I’m a…||4/10/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||Cinematic Pig’s Feet #26- Lisztomania||Watching Lisztomania was a voyage of discovery. Both Katalin and I discovered all sorts of interesting historical tidbits about Franz Liszt, Richard Wagner, George Sand, and other that we didn’t know before. I discovered that I have a deep affinity f||2/20/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||Cinematic Pig’s Feet #25- Alphaville||Aphaville. Ugh. I wanted to like this movie. I mean, I like weird, philosophical movies. I like low budget movies. Alphaville is a weird, low-budget movie, a takeoff on the Lemmy Caution character, evidently a staple of European action movies…||2/7/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||Cinematic Pig’s Feet #24- Rock & Rule||This week Katalin and John watched Rock & Rule, Canadian animation studio Nelvana‘s answer to Heavy Metal and all that loud music their Southern neighbors were playing.

||Cinematic Pig’s Feet #22- Let’s Visit the World of the Future||It is no secret that I am a holy man of the Church of the SubGenius. I have a fondness for their art. Let’s Visit the World of the Future was a SubGenius film before their was a CotSG, and…||12/5/2015||Free||View in iTunes|
||Cinematic Pig’s Feet #20- Phantom of the Paradise||After a few rather dreary movies, we thought we deserved a treat. So, Katalin and I watched a 70’s confection called the Phantom of the Paradise. It was bonkers.||11/8/2015||Free||View in iTunes|
||Cinematic Pig’s Feet #19- Idiots and Angels||Idiots and Angels is an animated feature written and directed by American animator Bill Plympton. It is a beautiful fill, with dreamlike, surreal imagery. The story is a bit thin, and the protagonist is damned hard to root for, but…||10/25/2015||Free||View in iTunes|
||Cinematic Pig’s Feet #18- Aelita, Queen of Mars||I wanted to like Aelita, Queen of Mars. This is one of the first science fiction movies, its the inspiration for such works as Flash Gordon and Metropolis, it has a cool aesthetic, and being Russian it has a perspective…||10/11/2015||Free||View in iTunes|
