Quentin Tarantino is an obvious go-to for Mexican standoffs, but perhaps not so much for Mexican vampires! Yet that was the topic of one of the filmmaker's early scripts that he revised and made with his pal Robert Rodriguez. Tarantino focused on his acting in his largest role to date, and Rodriguez handled the directing. With TV star George Clooney and Tarantino staple Harvey Keitel along for the ride, this crime-horror comedy found a cult following during its 1996 release. But do these vampires such? Donate and support Now Playing to get this "thank you" bonus review. Then you can listen and find out!

 

Akira (1988) - Patron Exclusive Podcast

Stuart, Jakob, and Arnie are headed to Neo-Tokyo this June for a much-anticipated review of Akira. Japan’s answer to the X-Men pits telekinetic mutants against a fascist Colonel, and pill-popping bikers, in a post-apocalyptic city scarred by nuclear war. Will tyrant Tetsuo succeed in locating the mythical title character beneath an Olympic stadium? Or will phantom limb pain, and friction with former best friend Kaneda, undo his dreams of earning a gold medal in evil? Absorb everything about cinema’s most celebrated anime by becoming a Now Playing Patron.

Mel Gibson and Danny Glover are finally too old for this shtick!  But before their popular franchise retires, expectant father Riggs and grandpa Murtaugh take on human traffickers and Triad gangsters relocating to LA’s Chinatown. Can new addition Chris Rock land as many jokes as martial arts superstar Jet Li lands punches? And what does Joe Pesci catch when he goes fishing with his new gun? This plot is crazier than an Ebony Clark romance novel, but Stuart, Arnie, and Jakob break down Lethal Weapon 4 when you Donate at the Platinum Level.
