This episode, we pay tribute to the recently passed Nick Redman - one of the co-founders of the wonderfulTwilight Time Blu-ray label. Elric and Brian are joined by guest Rob Galluzzo (of Shock Waves) to each choose five titles from the Twilight Time catalog that they'd like to highlight (as well as many honorable mentions). We are huge fans of the work Twilight Time is doing here at PCP headquarters and we highly recommend you check out some of their discs. Also, have a listen to our previous Twilight Time love-fest from way back on episode 20 for more recommendations and favorites. Rest in Peace Nick, you leave behind an incredible legacy of cinema for movie lovers everywhere to enjoy.

If you are not an L.A. native, definitely check out this episode nonetheless as the lion's share of films have been been picked by Quentin Tarantino himself! There's lots and lots of movie talk here for all of our listeners to enjoy!

For their Season Three Finale, Elric and Brian return to their tradition of using one of Danny Peary's Cult Movies books as the jumping off point for the episode. They each choose their usual "Five Films Because" from the book and also throw in a short list of three movies each that they feel deserved to be highlighted from season three. During the break between seasons, be sure to look for them on Patreon, where they will continue to crank out exclusive bonus content!

After going in depth on John Carpenter and Documentaries, Elric and Brian go breezier with this "Exploitation Sampler" episode, in which they each choose a film from the categories of Blaxploitation, Hicksploitation, Canuxploitation, Sexploitation and one 'wild card' category of exploitation. This will hopefully just be a lead in to deeper dives into many if not all of these categories at a later date.

Elric and Brian return to the great John Carpenter again to talk about and pair the films from the second half of his career including such classics as BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA, PRINCE OF DARKNESS, THEY LIVE and IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS (and many more)! This episode is just as epic as the first part, and may be the longest episode of PCP to date! A proper tribute to an incredible gentleman!

In this episode, Elric and Brian follow up on a promise they made back in the Tarantino episode to do a full tribute and pairings for the great John Carpenter! This turned out to be a huge task as ALL of Carpenter's films are being discussed and paired and thus the first two-part episode of Pure Cinema is born! This round they cover his first ten films - from DARK STAR to STARMAN! Watch for part two and the rest!
