Hello you lot and welcome to Sudden Double Deeper!
Linking back to one of our Christmas episodes, Daryl picked Lady Snowblood 2: Love Song of Vengeance for his first birthday episode. The sequel to the movie that helped inspire Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill. This beast of a cult classic features the awesome Meiko Kaji as a trained killer out for more than just revenge.
Ben's triple bill pick all feature the word DRIVE. We get up to hi-jinx with Corey Haim and Corey Feldman in License to Drive (1988), forget who we are with Laura Harring and Naomi Watt's in David Lynch's Mulholland Drive (2001) AND swoon at Ryan Gosling's scorpion jacket in Nicholas Winding Refn's neon noir, Drive (2011)

Next week, Daryl has picked Lady Snowblood 2: Love Song of Vengeance (Starring Japanese cult film legend Meiko Kaji) as his first birthday episode. Also... it's his actual birthday... and Valentine's Day, so maybe drop us that review!
For Ben's birthday pick we're talking about the Coen Brother's classic, The Big Lebowski, starring Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Julianne Moore, Steve Buscemi, Tara Reid, Flea, John Turturo, Philip Seymour Hoffman, David Thewlis and Sam Elliot!
This episode was recorded like... two weeks before the weird Jeff Bridges teaser for that Stella, Superbowl commercial. This was all just some crazy, cosmic convergence, man.
On our MOON triple bill we caught Peter Bogdanovitch's Paper Moon, Milos Forman's Andy Kaufman biopic, Man on the Moon (starring Jim Carrey, Danny DeVito and Courtney Love) and Duncan Jones' debut feature, Moon (starring the now Academy Award winning Sam Rockwell).
