King Kong Escapes (1967) is week 3′s APEril movie. MechaKong is created by the evil Dr. Who and it’s up to actual King Kong to defeat it in order to save Tokyo.
Going Ape! (1981) is our second movie for APEril. Tony Danza has to care for three orangutans (and Danny DeVito) in order to inherit $5 million. Why? Because movie.
MVP 2: Most Vertical Primate (2001) is our first movie for APEril. Watch Jack hang with Al (from Home Improvement) and get some sick air and also mostly play hockey.
Only the Strong (1993) is our final movie for March Dacascos, this one has the distinct honor of being pretty much the only American movie to prominently feature the Brazilian dance fighting style capoeira.
Double Dragon (1994) is week 3′s movie for March Dacascos. This time we get to see Mark use his martial arts ability but he is hampered by his annoying little “brother” Scott Wolf. At least Robert Patrick and Alyssa Milano are along for visual enjoyment in their unique ways.
Scorcher (2002) is our second movie for March Dacascos and this time Mark is totally miscast as a military guy who has absolutely no idea how to fight. Rutger Hauer plays the President who decides the only way to save the planet is to detonate a nuke in Los Angeles.
American Samurai (1992) is our first movie for March Dacascos and also happens to be our 5th Anniversary episode. So we brought in the director/star of Cyborg Cop to kick us off.
Second half it’s time for the long promised all listener correspondence half as we had a lot of catching up to do. Enjoy!
Black Samson (1974) is our fifth and final movie for Blaxploitation History Month of 2014. We end, as so many sagas do, with the story of a man, his pet lion and a giant stick taking on the corrupt land hungry mafia.
Cleopatra Jones (1973) is week 4′s Blaxpoitation History Month movie. Random things unfold and a plot just kind of happens but at least we get one of the best car chases we’ve seen somewhere in the middle. Plus the most likeable criminal crew you could find.
Black Belt Jones (1974) is our third movie for Blaxploitation History Month. Jim Kelly is back and kicking many dudes and throwing them through many windows.
