Dangerous Men (2005) is our movie for this week, and the episode title is not a joke. (If you’re sensitive about violence towards women, this might be the week to skip. Seriously.) Dangerous Men is the story of a woman wronged who is out for revenge… Sort of. It’s also the story of a cop tracking down a biker named Black Pepper… Sort of. Pieced together over 20+ years of footage and recently re-released by Drafthouse Films, was this “WTF is happening” movie worth the effort?
Enter The Ninja (1981) is a Cannon classic from the inimitable Menahem Golan. Franco Nero plays the whitest ninja while Sho Kosugi plays the most kill-happy. We also get a healthy dose of crazy bosses and fun henchmen.
After the break Harlo talks more Hardcore Henry, Chuck gives his verdict on HBO’s Confirmation and take more listener correspondence! Enjoy!
The Ice Pirates (1984) marks a space classic unseen since the childhoods of some podcast members, but does it hold up as adults? Can a bevy of BMFcast alums overcome the randomness and weird tone?
Hard Hunted (1993) brings us back into the wonderful world of Andy Sidaris. Donna and Nicole are once again tasked with doing something that will involve shooting dudes, blowing up dudes and getting naked with dudes. It’s an Andy Sidaris movie, after all.
Russell Madness (2015) is, predictably, the conclusion to the March To Russell Madness! Robert Vince returns to direct another tale of talking dogs and monkeys doing things they shouldn’t be doing. Like joining pro wrestling federations. Will we become Russell Maniacs by the time it’s all over?
Tough and Deadly (1995) continues the March to Russell Madness! Billy Blanks and Roddy Piper, the stars of Back In Action return to kick a LOT of people in the face. Like, an unbelievable amount. Don’t believe us? Watch our face kick supercut!
After the break we get Netflixy as BJ discusses Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny and Harlo gives his take on Pee Wee’s Big Holiday. Chuck revisits Revenge of the Nerds, Maki honors ATCQ by watching Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest and we even take some listener correspondence that might be wrestling related! Enjoy!
Hunt To Kill (2010) is how we celebrate episode 316 and the March to Russell Madness. It stars Stone Cold Steve Austin (get it!? 3:16!?) as a border patrol agent who loses his partner and has a daughter who gets kidnapped by Gil Bellows and his crew and… Blah blah blah, just get to killing dudes, Steve. Thankfully, in the third act, he does.
After the break Harlo and Chuck discuss 10 Cloverfield Lane as non-spoilery as possible and we catch up on a batch of listener correspondence, including a bunch of brand new voicemails. Enjoy!
12 Rounds marks the triumphant return of John Cena and our 7th anniversary of podcasting! If you’ve seen Die Hard With a Vengeance, you’ve seen most of this movie. Can Cena running around destroying New Orleans while Aidan Gillen keeps calling his cell help that?
American Pie Presents Band Camp (2005) seemed like the proper way to “celebrate” episode 3.14. (Get it!?) Or something. Turns out that was a bad idea, as Stifler’s younger brother is an even worse character than the original guy. And he’s the main character. Uh oh.
Sweet Jesus, Preacherman (1973) wraps up this year’s Blaxploitation History Month. Can TC from Magnum PI convince us he’s a hitman convincing churchgoers he’s their new preacher? Will he clean up the streets or end as shady as William Smith (yes, him, again), who hired him? Also, can the movie possibly live up to its awesome poster?
The second half is turned over to you, the listeners as we take a boatload of e-mails and voicemails discussing movies that misunderstand technology, Lucha Underground, blaxploitation’s role in modern entertainment, and even the very essence of Chuck Fine™. Enjoy!
