Blood Warriors (1993) continues Bloodtober with the return of decorated BMFcast alums Sam Firstenberg and David Bradley! Wes is a con who gets bailed out by his old marine buddy Keith from Jakarta. After Keith’s death, Wes must battle a drug cartel, all while fending off advances from Karen, Keith’s sister. From there it takes some odd turns. It’s a random one, for sure.
Second half Maki talks about The Thing (2011) before we get into a new batch of listener correspondence. Enjoy!
Bloodfist (1989) begins Bloodtober, after a weeklong Hurricane Matthew related delay. Don “The Dragon” Wilson makes his BMFcast debut, searching for his brother’s murderer with a little help from a guy named Baby, a fight against Billy Blanks and one really messed up mango.
After the break we discuss the incredibly influential original Westworld, The Conjuring series, found footage movies, the genius of John Carpenter’s The Thing, Netflix’s Luke Cage, and even find time for listener e-mails. Enjoy!
Episode seven is the finale for the Summer Movie Series and we end it with a dumb joke as we cover Summer Glau in 2006’s MAMMOTH and Donna Summer in 1978’s THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY. What a way to end this particular theme. Enjoy!
Episode six of our Summer Movie Series finally goes back into the 70s with Malibu Beach, then we enjoy a coked-up Bruce Greenwood in 1986’s Malibu Bikini Shop. Summer is over, so relive the memories!
Solarbabies (1986) concludes Skatember with another vision of the future. Jamie Gertz, Jason Patric and other kids are pressed into service of the E-Police (read: Nazis) after water leaves the earth. Also, they rollerskate and everyone is chasing a magic glowing ball. It’s way better than that makes it sound, trust us.
Second half we talk about Final Girl (2015) before diving into listener e-mails and fashion through the years(!?). It’s an odd half. Enjoy!
Gleaming The Cube (1989) has Skatember rolling on as Christian Slater searches for his adopted brother’s killer with the help of Stephen Bauer and lots of skateboarding friends. Will he crack the case or crack his trucks instead? Maybe both!
Second half we get Maki’s take on Straight Outta Compton (2015), Harlo wonders about The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008) and issues everyone a challenge regarding Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups (2015). Enjoy!
Episode five of our Summer Movie Series takes a look at two 1986 movies that are basically the same: Club Paradise starring Robin Williams and Last Resort starring Charles Grodin. As per usual, opinions vary wildly. Enjoy!
Prayer of the Rollerboys (1991) brings Skatember into the distant future, where gangs of trenchcoated drug-dealing rollerbladers control the post-apocalyptic streets of Los Angeles. Is Corey Haim the only one who can stop them? Will he need help from Patricia Arquette? How awesome is Mark Pellegrino in this? All these questions will be answered, and more!
Second half we talk about Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016) before declaring it our shortest half ever. Enjoy!
Episode four of the Summer Movie Series has us easing back into some lighter, less gross fare. One Crazy Summer talk includes a lot of Better Off Dead comparisons, and then we discuss why Weekend At Bernie’s is one of the more important films of the 20th century. Yep!
Thrashin’ (1986) continues Skatember with the age-old story of a skateboarder and his newfound girlfriend, separated by rival skate gangs. This early Josh Brolin movie has a LOT of skateboarding montages, not so much plot. But it does have Sherilyn Fenn, so you won’t hear us complaining.
After the break Harlo checks in on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows before we take some listener e-mails that lead to discussions of movies & TV shows we instantly hated or instantly loved. Enjoy!
