The Great Skycopter Rescue (1980) is a little seen, easy going, breezy good time at the drive in. Just 90 minutes of feather-haired fellows flying around in their go-copters. There are bikers being jerks down below, but that doesn’t matter, skycopterin’ for life.

The second half is LOADED with other movie talk, including Fast & Furious Presents Hobbs & Shaw, Detective Pikachu, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Rocketman, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and Life After Flash. Then Maki has a Quentin Tarantino marathon which included Kill Bill Vol. 1 and 2, Reservoir Dogs, Inglourious Basterds, and Django Unchained.

Universal Soldier (1992) is the first of 97 pairings of Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren. It’s a somewhat underrated action film that somehow has half a dozen sequels. Also, it’s the perfect Easter movie, what with all the resurrections and such.

Air Bud (1997) was what we needed this week. It’s the nice yet slightly horrific tale of an orphaned golden retriever (Buddy) who can also play basketball. So he does. And wins the state championship. There’s also kids and clowns and deserted islands along the way.

In the second half, Harlo starves while enjoying The Hunger Games quadrilogy, then goes back in time to see what all the fuss was about for Lawrence of Arabia. Chuck takes a trip to Atlanta, and then we’ve got a great bunch of emails. Enjoy!

Showdown (1993) is what happens when you take The Karate Kid and, well, make it again. Ken just started at Paradise High School but Tom hates it when Ken talks to his girl (Hey Dudes’ Christine Taylor). They fight. Then the school janitor/former Paradise Policeman Billy (Billy Blanks) teaches Ken how to fight. Everything concludes in an underground teenage fight club.

In the second half, BJ and Chuck have varying opinions on Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood (2019), and then the whole gang joins in on the Tarantino talk with specific thoughts on Kill Bill Vol. 1 (2003) and True Romance (1993). Also, brief opinions on Shazam (2019) and Thunderbirds (2004). Enjoy!

Iron Eagle (1986) is the first of four Irons Eagles and boy is it an 80s movie. Must have been fun to be a kid in the 80s where there’s zero consequences and you can go on murder adventures with Louis Gossett Jr.

Hercules II (1985) is the continuing adventures of Lou Ferrigno’s Hercules, although he may not have known that as they were filming. The stop motion robots of the first film have been replaced by lasers and drugs, so there’s things to talk about here.

In the second half we’ve got things to say about Spider Man: Far From Home, The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then the Bigfoot, Crazy Rich Asians, Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope, The Ladykillers, The Beach and TV’s Holey Moley. Enjoy!

The Crow: Wicked Prayer (2005) features Edward Furlong as JIMMY CUERVO, who battles Nic CRASH and Lola BYRNE and their gang of Satanists after being murdered and then Crow-ed. It is laughably bad. Unbelievably bad.

Best of the Best 2 (1993) continues the adventures of your favorite characters from the first installment, except this time they get involved in an underground Las Vegas fight/murder club… with deadly results.

In the second half we’ve got the hottest of takes on Spider-Man: Far From Home, Stranger Things Season 3, 21 Jump Street, 22 Jump Street and The Lego Ninjago Movie. Plus, your emails and voicemails. Enjoy!

Uncle Sam (1996) was once America’s gift to us, and now we give it back. Sam is a terrible person and a dead The Troop™ who rises from the dead to murder basically anyone. Flag burners, dope smokers, BBQ teens… no one is safe.

In the second half we’ve got an eclectic batch of opinions on A Star is Born, Hidden Figures, Historical Roasts, 2001 A Space Odyssey, and The Iron Giant. Enjoy!

T-Force (1994) is a delightfully silly low budget action film from the masterminds at PM Entertainment, makers of Hologram Man. RoboCops are decommissioned but that goes against their survival protocol, so they rebel. Also, they learn to love… physically. Lots of other things (besides their robopassion) explode all over the screen.

In the second half there are X-Men: Dark Phoenix and San Andreas thoughts, along with an extended rant about people not shutting the hell up in theaters, and why it’s broken yet another one of us. Enjoy!
