Space Buddies (2009) is what we watch when Harlo skips an episode. Our intrepid crew of golden retrievers somehow ends up in space and makes friends with Spudnick, a russian dogsmonaut and Gravity, a ferret who’s an expert in atmospheric re-entry trajectories. Or something.
After the break Maki rewatches John Wick (2014) and we take a metric ton of listener e-mails! Sequels to Titanic (1997) are hatched, Saved! (2004) gets a shout out and plenty more. Enjoy!
Gen 2 of Amityville begins and ends as it’s time for the 2005 Amityville Horror remake! Also known as The Abs-ityville Horror, as you’ll soon see. Come listen to two men who’ve just watched this film struggle to talk about it in the right order!
Band of the Hand (1986) is about as ’80s a movie as we can get. Produced by Michael Mann and set in Miami, it’s the tale of a Vietnam Vet (Stephen Lang) who whips a team of juvenile delinquents into shape by training them in the Everglades and then helping them end the reign of drug dealers Laurence Fishburne and James Remar. Oh yeah, and a very young Lauren Holley is along for the ride. Will an explosive finale, great soundtrack and even better ’80s fashions ripped out of Miami Vice be enough to get Jox from us?
Second half Chuck reviews The Jungle Book (2016) and The Angry Birds Movie (2016), we discuss Captain America: Civil War’s airport fight a little more in-depth, and take some listener voice- and e-mails. Enjoy!
Gen 1 of Amityville comes to a close as we discuss 1996’s AMITYVILLE DOLLHOUSE, the 8th entry in the franchise. Can a family escape the evil clutches of a spooky dollhouse? Come find out!
Dollman (1991) brings back the triple threat of Tim Thomerson, Charles Band, and Albert Pyun in the story of a hard-boiled alien cop who happens to be the size of a doll when he crash lands on earth. Can he stop a ruthless group of gangbangers led by Jackie Earle Haley and the disembodied doll-sized head of the criminal he was chasing?
In the second half it’s time for our annual GOLDEN JOX AWARDS! We tell you our favorite movies of the year for 2016 in what becomes a super-sized second half. Enjoy!
Mankillers (1987) brings director David A. Prior back to the show, as he tells us the story of an all-girl squad of inmates-turned-mercenaries out to take down a drug agent gone rogue in Columbia. (Or Columbia, South Carolina – we’re not sure.) Will this combination of Hell Squad and Deadly Prey work for us?
In the second half we briefly revisit Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) and the series in general before Maki reviews Justin Lin’s Star Trek Beyond (2016), Harlo’s pinball journey continues with Barb Wire (1996) and we close out the show (and the year) with some heartwarming e-mails. Enjoy!
The 7th entry in the never-connected Amityville universe features a spooky mirror, artists living in a loft, and the combined talents of Richard Roundtree, David Naughton and Terry O’Quinn. From the director of COP DOG! Enjoy.
Santa’s Slay (2005) is our holiday episode this year, and what a ride. A slay ride, if you will. Bill Goldberg plays a pissed off demon Santa looking to cause mayhem and go to strip clubs.
Second half is jam packed with Chuck’s Christmas marathon of Die Hard 2, Gremlins and Love Actually, Harlo attempts to revisit Space Jam, the second X-Men trilogy is discussed, and then some other movie what was it oh yeah Rogue One: A Star Wars Story makes a spoiler-free appearance. Enjoy!
Johnny Mnemonic (1995) marks Keanu Reeves’ official first-half debut, and he’s joined by a bevy of BMFcast alums including Ice-T, Udo Kier, Henry Rollins, and Dolph Lundgren. Keanu is a future courier, trading corporate secrets in his brain. Every one wants what he’s got, or wants him dead. If’s a wonderland of mid-’90s cyber-whatever. This is a fun one.
After the break, we discuss HBO’s Westworld (2016) and get into spoiler speculation in weekly reviews before Maki gets all indie in his year-end catch-up, talking about The Fits, Green Room and The Witch (or The VVitch, if you are so inclined.) Enjoy!
Back on track after the abysmal 4th and 5th entries in the Amityville franchise. This time, a spooky clock infects a house with spooky time, and there are spooky dogs, spooky sex and spooky Dick Miller. Enjoy!
