Despite all better judgement, Juggalo Month continues with our second voyage into the Insane Clown Posse’s filmography, Big Money Rustlas! It’s the prequel that claims to be inspired by Blazing Saddles, Sergio Leone and Looney Tunes, but in reality is a pile of cinematic shit in a cowboy hat. Fortunately, you don’t have to watch it because we already did, and you can listen to us talk about it for an hour for just $1!
Over the course of the discussion, we discover where all the racism and homophobia that we expected in the first movie ended up, get really uncomfortable at the presence of Scott Hall, and actually get into a debate over which ICP movie is actually better. We realize before too long that it’s not a very productive debate.
Grab the episode today and thanks for listening, everybody!
Remember a couple years ago when we thought it would be a good idea to listen to Holiday Heat, the Psychopathic Records Christmas album, and it ended up being such a harrowing experience that Matt Fraction has never fully recovered and was led to launching a new comic with noted Internet sex pervert Chip Zdarsky? Well, we know you all enjoyed that, so we thought it might be a good idea to make november Juggalo Month on Movie Fighters!
This week, we launched right into it with Big Money Hustlas (Hu$tla$?), Violent J’s screenwriting debut. It’s a movie that, in theory, sounds like something I’d be interested in: An homage to blaxploitation cinema featuring appearances by Dolemite and Cactus Jack. In practice, it’s Naked Gun written by a couple of idiots.
Movie Fighters vs. Big Money Hustlas is available right now at Bandcamp for one thin dollar, or if you enjoy the show and would like to throw a little more money at us, you have the option to increase that amount as much as you’d like. Plus, be sure to catch up on the other episodes where we’ve tackled movies like Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, Miami Connection and the truly awful Ready to Rumble, and be here in two weeks for the prequel, Big Money Rustlas!
