Cartel (1990) is our return to the works of John Stewart, director of Action USA, a BMFcast classic. Can an unhinged Don Stroud and plenty of exploding vehicles bring the same joy?
Second half it’s supersized and it’s all Mad Max: Fury Road. Should you skip the 3D and see it in 2D? (YES.) Can 98% on RottenTomatoes actually hurt a movie? How much hyperbole is too much hyperbole? How awesome is Imperator Furiosa? All these questions and more will be answered. Enjoy!
Street Hunter (1990) marks Steve James’ 8th BMFcast movie, and his first as the main star (though the poster would make you think otherwise.) He’s a bounty hunter named Logan Blade, hunting down Reb Brown and John Leguizamo.
The Adventures of Ford Fairlane (1990) continues Car May Diem! The Diceman introduces us to the true meaning of pain in this “comedy” where he’s portraying the biggest a-hole on the planet. It’s not a question of whether this is getting bags, it’s how many bags we’re giving it.
Second half BJ introduces some friends to BMFcast classics The Room and Megaforce while the rest of us fill up time talking about some superhero movie that came out last week called Avengers: Age of Ultron. Enjoy!
Alienator (1990) begins Fred Olen May! An evil prisoner guy lands on earth and an Alien Terminator lady-thing tracks him down. An Alienator, if you will. Oh yeah, and Jan Michael Vincent might be drunk.
Second half Harlo talks about Jupiter Ascending and The Internship, Maki revisits Marvel Phase Two, Chuck tries to figure out if we’ve ever done an episode on Johnny Dangerously (spoiler: no) and we take some fun voicemails and e-mails. Enjoy!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990) concludes our April O’Neil celebration. Do our memories of this ninja fightin’ “classic” live up to re-watching as old men?
House Party (1990) continues Kid ‘N Playpril as we return to the beginning of the House Party saga. It’s strangely good-natured, despite Play not wanting to associate with Kid, Martin Lawrence or any of his own friends. At least there are angry old men to give us entertaining one-liners!
Second half we discuss Daredevil on Netflix, and Daredevil (with Coolio!) and Chuck revises his best of 2014 list with John Wick, Interstellar, The Judge, The Imitation Game and Nightcrawler. There’s even a fan comic e-mail for us that you can see below. Enjoy!

Wheels of Terror (1990) continues April Fuels with a made-for-cable killer car movie. Early-’70s Charger battles little yellow school bus in what might be one of the longest chase sequences we’ve ever experienced on the show. Is it enough to make up for a pretty dull first and second act?
Second half we take some listener correspondence and then it’s all Furious 7 talk, both spoiler-free and spoiler-heavy. (Don’t worry, we’ll give you plenty of warning.) Everything you could possibly want to know about we want you to know about this movie is covered. Enjoy!
Shakma (1990) is the thrilling tale of a LARPing session gone totally wrong when a chemically altered, incredibly angry baboon is unleashed on an unsuspecting group of med students. And their doors. Lots and lots of doors.
Second half we wrap up our talk of Last Man on Earth, Chuck talks Jackie Chan with Police Story and then shifts gears to The Master, for some reason. On the eve of Furious 7, we revisit discussion of the Fast & Furious movies. Again. After that it’s some listener e-mails. Enjoy!
Dragonfight (1990) might be the most alum-packed episode we’ve ever had. Robert Z’Dar takes on a guy named Falchion in some kind of gladiator combat for the pleasure of megacorporations in the middle of the desert in the distant future of 1990. Trust us, it makes even less sense in the actual movie.
Second half Harlo dives into some newer musical movie fare with Whiplash and Inside Llewyn Davis, Chuck puzzlingly revisits the Rush Hour trilogy, Maki revisits some movies involving fast cars, BJ talks TV with Last Man on Earth, and we even have time for listener e-mails. It’s action-packed. Enjoy!
Invasion Force (1990) is our next foray into the world of David A. Prior. and like the prior Prior movies, it’s a wonder of low budgetness. A film crew making an action movie must thwart would-be terrorists from taking over a town and holding the inhabitants hostage.
