#257: Tyson / Easy Rider / Top 5 Cinematic Obsessions
Are you ready to reeeeeeeee-vieeeeeeew! In this corner, wearing the crimson and black trunks and weighing in at combined 500 lbs., former heavyweight champion of the world, convicted rapist and ear-biter, Iron Miiiiiiiiiike Tyson! Kid Dynamite is joined by the equally enigmatic filmmaker and screenwriter, noted lothario and Magna Cum Laude graduate from Harvard University, Jaaaaaaames Toback! The formidable tag team are responsible for the new documentary "Tyson." In the other corner, wearing the leopard print and velvet trunks and weighing a combined [REDACTED BY FILMSPOTTING MANAGEMENT] pounds from Chicago, Illinois, the Fighting Filmspotters: Adam “The Frying Dutchman” Kempenaar and Matty “Show Me on the Doll Where This Movie Touched You” Robinson!
On the undercard, Kempenaar and Robinson will face off against The Bastard Children of the New Hollywood, otherwise known as the Corman crew: Dennis Hopper, Peter Fonda, and Jack Nicholson, who changed the face of cinematic history with 1969’s revolutionary biker movie "Easy Rider," the fifth installment in Filmspotting’s on-going New Hollywood Marathon. And don't miss the main event... the Top 5 Cinematic Obsessions countdown.
