Here’s the first BMFcast Extra Summer Movie Series thing where, while we’re still working the kinks out of the format and whatnot, there’s still plenty of good talk and jokes about Summer Rental (1985) and Summer School (1987). Come revisit 80s beaches and Carl Reiner movies with Chuck and Harlo!
Jason X (2001) completes Harlo’s Crystal Lake journey and we all join him for the ride. Its Jason. In space. Murdering people. It’s also self-aware, which works in this case! In space, apparently, everybody is screwed.
In the second half Harlo really, really completes his Friday the 13th journey by watching Freddy vs Jason and the 2009 Friday the 13th remake before opting out of the 7-hour documentary. We also address some listener e-mails. Enjoy!
Trancers (1984) returns us to the works of Charles Band. Jack Deth is a good cop who lost his way after his wife was killed by Whistler’s trancers, zombie-like dudes who do his evil bidding. So he travels to the distant past of 1985 to meet Helen Hunt and keep himself from being erased from history. All that in a 76-minute movie!
After the break Harlo has some Suicide Squad hot takes, Maki weighs in on Stranger Things, and Friday the 13th Part 9: Jason Goes To Hell gets insulted. All this plus listener e-mails! Enjoy!
Watchers 3 (1994) takes us back to the Watchers franchise and woof, what a dog of a movie this is. Did we mention that it’s our #Dogust movie? Well, it is! So that’s something.
In the second half, Harlo continues his journey through Crystal Lake with Friday the 13th parts 7 and 8, and then we talk about how lights work. It’s entertaining and informative. Enjoy!
Mission of Justice (1992) has BMFcast newcomer Jeff Wincott taking on Brigitte Nielsen’s criminal cult (who happen to fight crime.) He’s got the martial arts moves, and he’s not afraid to use them. If you like painful stuntwork, this is your movie.
In the second half Harlo gives his feelings on Star Trek Beyond and Ghostbusters 2016 while Maki talks Secret Life of Pets in our theatrical corner. Then it’s DC time with Batman: The Killing Joke, and it’s Chuck v Batman V Superman: Ultimate Edition before we wrap things up with a continued journey into Friday the 13th Parts 5 & 6. Enjoy!
Breakin’ (1984) is Cannon’s attempt to cash in on that crazy breakdancing fad. Little did they know, everyone would be dancing like that for the rest of time. At least we still have Ice-T and Christopher McDonald to remember from the early days.
In the second half, Ghostbusters fan #1 BJ gives his take on the brand new all-lady edition, Harlo continues his journey down the Friday the 13th rabbithole, Chuck demands everyone watch Stranger Things on Netflix, and Maki reads a bunch of fun listener e-mails. Enjoy!
Superfights (1995) is one hell of a movie. This tale of an energetic youngster who joins a UFC/WWE/crime syndicate is CONSTANT action, training for action, or talking about action or training for action. It’s exhausting in the best way, so much so that our first half is packed!
The second half is no slouch though, as Chuck takes a look at the BMFcast BC movies Road House 2: Last Call and Navy Seals. Also, Harlo has the first two Friday the 13th movies along with Deathgasm and Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. Lastly, BJ defends Ghostbusters 2 from the haters, which leads to inevitable talk about those pesky Ghostbusters reboot haters. Enjoy!
Double Team (1997) brings Jean-Claude Van Damme back into the BMFcast fold, and he’s brought Dennis Rodman, Mickey Rourke, and Paul Freeman along for the ride. We can’t quite explain the plot, but there’s mercenaries, guns dealers and a super-secret Illuminati spy ring thing going on? Sure, that sounds about right. We talk about it for probably a bit too long.
After the break we had theme weekends as Harlo revisits the DC cinematic universe with the Nolan Batman trilogy and weighs in on Batman v Superman Ultimate Edition, Chuck sports it up with Foxcatcher, The Karate Kid, and Rocky 4, and Maki gets animated with Toy Story 2 and Happy Feet. Enjoy!
Maniac Cop (1988) is a BMF alumni-packed murderfest, where an evil Robert Z’Dar is on a murderous rampage and only Tom Atkins, Laurene Landon and Bruce Campbell can stop him! Sort of. William Smith is also along to act menacing.
Second half we talk about a plethora of movies including Harlo’s thoughts on The Brothers Grimsby, Zootopia, and the documentary Nintendo Quest, Maki discusses Trumbo and gives his thoughts on a solo viewing of Samurai Cop 2, and Chuck watches 2015’s Fantastic Four and White Line Fever. You can probably figure out which one he liked better. Enjoy!
Jaws 3-D (1983) is the finale for Sequel Month. It’s new to Blu-ray and finally includes a 3-D version of the film so we could experience it the way moviegoers once did! Does the gimmick save the film?
In the second half we chat about Deadpool and Zoolander 2, and BJ tells more tales from his recent stint with the 48 Hour Film Festival. Enjoy!
