Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast369 – Ready To Rumble – Good Nachos

Ready to Rumble (2000) is the conclusion to this year’s March to Wrestlemania. Two simpletons (David Arquette and Scott Caan) trek across America to help disgraced WCW superstar Jimmy King (Oliver Platt) reclaim his throne. Randy Savage, Goldberg, Sting and countless others weave in and out of the story along the way.

The second half has Harlo briefly discussing Marvel’s Iron Fist before the conversation devolves completely into plans for BMFcon 2018 and the horrifying surprises that lie within. Enjoy!

BMFcast Extra 020 – Dirty Ho

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast Extra 020 – Dirty Ho

Yes, it has an unfortunately misleading title… unfortunate because otherwise this movie is AWESOME. Billed as a comedy, this one has some of the best fight scenes we’ve ever witnessed. Pure martial arts genius at work in this one. Come listen to us rave about it.

BMFcast368 – Countdown – The Wrong Dolph

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast368 – Countdown – The Wrong Dolph

Countdown (2016) continues the March to Wrestlemania as Dolph Ziggler is tracking down a child with a ticking time bomb attached to him. Kane is the police chief who yells at him a lot and Katharine Isabelle is the internal affairs agent who’s there to shut him down. Or help him. Or something. Also, there are lots of other wrestlers.

Second half has Harlo continuing his pinball project with CGI nightmare Lost in Space (1998), while Chuck gives his thoughts on Luc Besson’s Lucy (2014), Marvel’s Doctor Strange (2016), and Peter Berg’s Deepwater Horizon (2016). Enjoy!

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast Extra 019 – Five Deadly Venoms

We needed a baseline for our Shaw Brothers project, so we dipped a couple years into the past to check out one of the more famous of the studio’s martial arts flicks, 1978’s Five Deadly Venoms. Enjoy!

BMFcast367 – Ricochet – Clown Life

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast367 – Ricochet – Clown Life

Ricochet (1991) welcomes Denzel Washington to the show! He’s a cop/D.A. who is pursued by a pathologically obsessed John Lithgow in an utterly baffling ’90s thriller. Ice-T is a gang leader who might help Denzel and Jesse Ventura appears to make this a March To Wrestlemania tie-in, of course.

In the second half Harlo & Maki discuss Get Out (2017) and Kubo and the Two Strings (2016) while BJ gives his thoughts on I Don’t Feel At Home In This World Anymore (2017). Enjoy!

Next up in our path through the world of the Shaw Brothers is 1980’s TWO CHAMPIONS OF SHAOLIN, which features The Venoms, a squad of martial arts masters. Probably wasn’t the one of theirs we should have started with, but here we are.

Like last week’s film, this one is available on Amazon Prime. And if you want to find more Shaw Brothers movies online, check out www.shawbrothersuniverse.com for links to every place you can legally watch these things. It’s a very helpful site!

BMFcast366 – Terminal Rush – Dragon Ass

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast366 – Terminal Rush – Dragon Ass

Terminal Rush (1996) seemed like a great way to celebrate our 8th(!) anniversary, as well as continue the March To Wrestlemania. Rowdy Roddy Piper leading a gang of terrorists, with only Don “The Dragon” Wilson to stop him in a “Die Hard on a dam” movie? What could go wrong? Sadly, a lot.

After the break Harlo weighs in on Logan (2017), Maki continues the comic booking with Doctor Strange (2016), and we discuss Disney’s new golden age of animation with Moana (2016). All this and plenty of e-mails and reminiscing. Enjoy!

BMFcast Extra 017 – Killer Constable

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast Extra 017 – Killer Constable

It’s a new year and a new theme for BMFcast Extra. Gen 3 of Amityville movies went south, fast, and so we decided it was time to dive into the vast martial arts library of the Shaw Brothers, films that we are mostly unfamiliar with. Mostly.

We begin with 1980’s KILLER CONSTABLE, which is about exactly what the title suggests. Is it a good place to start? Well, the movie is available on Amazon Prime so check it out for yourself and then come back and enjoy our discussion!

BMFcast365 – Firepower – The Mediocre Warrior

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast365 – Firepower – The Mediocre Warrior

Firepower (1993) brings back BMFcast alums Gary Daniels and Chad McQueen as cops from the distant future of 2007, on the hunt for The Swordsman (played by Jim Hellwig aka The Ultimate Warrior) and a cure for AIDS. To find both they’ll need to enter an underground martial arts tournament. As you do. This year’s Road To Wrestlemania is officially here, and we’re on it.

After the break it’s a packed second half with discussion of Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet (2017), Gone in Sixty Seconds (2000), and Aaron Sorkin’s Charlie Wilson’s War (2007) and Malice (1993). We also discuss the many great roles of Bill Paxton before taking a boatload of e-mails and voicemails. Enjoy!
