He's appeared in dozens of movies, and is a martial artist and fight choreographer who's worked with the likes of Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio. Pretty cool stuff, right. Not a question, a statement.
But Dom is the real deal. He served in the French Foreign Legion and saw action in Africa. From there he travelled to Thailand and fought in the famed freestyle fighting rings. He also hints at working as a mercenary, which makes his latest film feel all-too real.
We talked with Dom for about eight minutes last night, but you get to hear the full 26-minute interview on this podcast. It's a riveting conversation with a fascinating man. Consider it an anniversary gift to our listeners.

You might remember The Basement Boys reviewed Bad CGI Sharks a few weeks back. They enjoyed the movie so much it seemed logical to invite Jason and Matt Ellsworth and Matteo Molinari to join them on the show. The trio were gracious enough to accept.
Jay interviews Laura about her role in Along Came the Devil II, discussing how she became involved in the project, what it was like maintaining the level of emotions required to survive a horror movie, and how she enjoyed working with veteran actor Bruce Davison. Laura is a charmer, and brings a sense of humour to the interview. This is a lively 10-minute discussion fans will enjoy.
When it comes to talking with Jason, Matt and Matteo, the kid gloves are off as the Dynamic Duo learn how Bad CGI Sharks came together, how much of the movie is based on Jason and Matt's own experiences, and how the trio adjusted to their film becoming an Internet sensation. This is a great conversation, and one that is definitely not suitable for work.
All five Basement Dwellers put Laura's film Along Came the Devil II on the chopping block. Is this horror sequel the next big thing this Halloween? Stick with us!

The Bill Moseley interview and 3 From Hell
<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/85/2c/be/filmreviewsfromthebasement/3000x3000_14328805.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />Summer break is over, and The Basement Boys are back. And they've brought genre icon Bill Moseley with them!
Jay sat down to discuss Bill's return to arguably one of his most iconic roles; Otis Firefly from Rob Zombie's House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects. And you can see Bill as Otis once again when 3 From Hell opens on Sept 16.
Bill discusses how Zombie brought the Firefly clan back for one more killing spree, what it was like getting into Otis' mindset after a 14-year break, and why these films and characters endure. Bill is a class act with a great sense of humour, and he and Jay had a great 12-minute conversation. So yeah, ya'll need to hear this one!
And Jason and Shaw get into 3 From Hell as well. Yup, they've seen this bad boy, and sound off on it in a feature discussion. NOT a review, as those don't come out until next week. But they have a few words to say about it.
Shawn also gets political again about some other stuff, and uses words like oligopoly. Be patient with him. He was tired when this was recorded.

But before Jason and Shawn take their annual vacation from all things entertainment, they get roped into discussing a few things cinematic and musical.
By fan request, the Basement Boys talk the first single from Tool's new album, Fear Inoculum -- the band's first since 2006's 10,000 Days -- and their sudden recognition by Billboard. One of the Dynamic Duo is a Tool fan, the other is not. How does that sway the conversation? Stick with us!
Jason and Shawn also catch up with Mindhunter Season 2 and the first season of Wu Assassin, among other things. They've got a few thoughts on the just announced Matrix 4, the fate of Spider-Man in the MCU, and the new Rambo: Last Blood and Underwater trailers. Whoa!

That's right, Bad CGI Sharks: the new sharksploitation comedy from Matthew and Jason Ellsworth and Matteo Molinari. But it's not only a Deadpool-like spoof of shark movies; it's a commentary on filmmaking, brotherhood and being creative despite what anyone says.
A pretty heady mix for a movie called Bad CGI Sharks, right? So what do Jason and Shawn think of it? Is the movie worth your time and money? Are there boobies? Stick with us!

<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/85/2c/be/filmreviewsfromthebasement/3000x3000_14243346.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />The Basement Boys return, and move further into the realm of all-things entertainment, with their latest interview... one steeped in the subject of science fiction.
Jay speaks with Tennessee physicist Leah Broussard, who is preparing to open a doorway into a parallel -- or mirror -- universe. How? Why? What secrets does she hope to unlock? These are the questions Jay asks, and Leah answers. And yes: some Stranger Things references are made.
Leah is one of us, and this is a fun, informative and entertaining conversation. It's also a sign of the times in The Basement, as we move away from -- but not completely out of -- the realm of movies and into the world of anything entertaining, and all the topics it offers up for discussion.
But fear not, Jason and Shawn do talk movies, Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and the new Zombieland trailer, to be specific. Plus Jay reviews Crawl and Shawn finally saw the end of Point Blank. There's also a discussion about back-to-back Halloween sequels.

Jason speaks with author, journalist and the world's leading expert on UFOs and conspiracy theories, Nick Pope! Yup, NICK POPE! And they're talking the Internet's latest viral sensation, Storm Area 51.
They discuss the logistics and validity of Storm Area 51, people's fascination with the site and UFOs, and why conspiracy theories and aliens remain so fixed in the public consciousness. This is a great interview with the world's leading expert on the subject, and one all Basement Dwellers need to hear.

The Basement Boys aren't drinking mead or interviewing anyone this episode. But they are catching up with a bunch of stuff that should hit you right in your entertainment centre.

The Mead Cast
<img src="https://assets.podomatic.net/ts/85/2c/be/filmreviewsfromthebasement/3000x3000_14176235.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br />What, you ask, do a couple of guys who review movies know about mead? And, while on the subject, what qualifies them to review said mead on their show... which is supposed to be about movies and all things entertainment?
Well, mead is a drink, and drinks are an important part of many entertainment events, so put that in your pipe and smoke it!
Jason and Shawn do indeed talk mead -- an alcoholic beverage derived from honey -- and they do provide their two cents on some local brew, as per the request of the brewer. How do the Basement Boys do on their first alcohol review? Stick with us!
But the Dynamic Duo ARE movie and entertainment guys, so they weigh in on the Sean Connery classic The Presidio, and the trailer for Rian Johnson's upcoming mystery flick Knives Out starring current Bond, Daniel Craig. There's also a sad lament on the passing of Mad Magazine.

Deadsight hits DVD and VOD July 2.

That's it. Thanks for tuning in...
Jason sat down with Marc and talked about his role in the upcoming action/horror flick No Man's Ridge from writer/director Eric Red. They also discuss how Marc's lifetime of training in the martial arts led him to acting, what movies inspired him to pursue this career, and what it's like being on the cusp of a career in film. It's a great 14-minute conversation every movie fan needs to hear.
Jason and Shawn also talk Netflix's newest action epic Polar, Tommy Wiseau's return to filmmaking, and the demise of World War Z 2. Oh, and Mike S leaves his Twitter keyboard behind and returns to The Basement with a review of Mamma.
