Willie Dynamite (1974) wraps up Blaxploitation History Month 2015 (a week late, but still). Gordon from Sesame Street is the world’s most charismatic pimp with the world’s coolest wardrobe and the world’s coolest car. So of course everyone in New York City wants to take him down.
Cleopatra Jones and the Casino of Gold (1975) continues Blaxploitation History Month. Tamara Dobson and the Karate Brothers return for this bigger, crazier, Hong Kong-ier sequel. Is a whole lot of face makeup and a ridiculous amount of third-act carnage enough to top the original?
Bucktown (1975) the next movie for Blaxploitation History Month. Fred Williamson returns home to bury his brother and ends up finding a crooked cop ring of extortion in this small town of debauchery.
Dolemite (1975) officially begins Blaxploitation History Month 2015! We finally experience Rudy Ray Moore’s iconic character, but can we dig it? Or are we no-business, born-insecure, junkyard mother… You know the rest.
Second half we talk TV on the big screen with some Game of Thrones IMAX, before re-visiting Arnold’s mid-90s CG classic Eraser. After that we attempt to wring a few laughs out of Bridesmaids before once again delving into listener emails. Can you dig it? Yeah, we can dig it. Enjoy!
Secret Agent 00 Soul (1990) is our latest journey into complete insanity. Billy Dee Williams does his stuntman a few favors, participating in what might be the most poorly-made movie we’ve ever covered. Can a movie made by stuntmen turn out to actually not be good?
Second half we discuss a few newer movies in Selma, Gone Girl and The Interview, before taking a trip through time with the Back To the Future trilogy. After that it’s another exciting batch of listener e-mails. Listen, share and enjoy!
China O’Brien (1990) is our movie for the week. Cynthia Rothrock is back to kick and punch some vengeance into a lawless small town and also run a successful campaign for sheriff.
Death Warrant (1990) is our movie of the week. JCVD goes undercover in a prison in a series of terrible ideas and shaky motives only to come up against The Sandman. They have a fight, Van Damme wins. Van Damme.
Hardware (1990) is our first movie of 2015. This is not the movie you’re looking for. Move along.
Second half it’s time for our 2014 Golden Jox celebrating the best movies of the year. That’s it. The entire half. Enjoy!
American Ninja 3: Blood Hunt (1989) is how we wrap up 2014. Steve James is back for the third time but instead of Dudikoff we get the Cyborg Cop himself, David Bradley.
Fred Claus (2007) is our gift to you this holiday season. May the tidings of Oscar winners and tiny Luda be upon you and yours.
