Convoy (1978) w/Keith Phipps of The Next Picture Show

Convoy (1978)

This week, Jared couldn’t make it, but regular guest Julia steps in as co-host! We bring back The Next Picture Show‘s Keith Phipps to talk about the cult 1973 trucker romp Convoy – starring Kris Kristofferson and directed by Sam Peckinpah (and based on the hit… novelty song?). Fire up your CB radio and check out our great big convoy, along with our custom cocktail and drinking game!

Dirty Lyle (from Convoy)

DRINKING RULES FOR CONVOY:

  1. Whenever a character says ‘breaker’
  2. Every time something terrible happens to a police car or semi truck
  3. Any time Kris Kristofferson actually gets out of his truck

FINISH YOUR DRINK WHEN:

The other truckers honk their horns at once upon the (alleged) death of Rubber Duck.

Join us next week as we kick off our second month covering all video-game movies, starting with 2016’s CGI blobfest Warcraft!
