We pumped the brakes and take a detour from our Shaw Brothers-ing to celebrate Fate of the Furious week with two supposed knockoffs: 2007’s Redline and 2003’s Biker Boyz. We learn a lot along the way.

Dragonball Evolution (2009) continues AniMAY! It’a a live action (very loose) adaptation of the long-running manga and anime series. Can Chow Yun-Fat, Emmy Rossum, Ernie Hudson, and James Marsters overcome Justin Chatwin being cast as Goku? Or does it not matter because it just turns into a CG mess anyway?

In the second half Harlo gives his impressions of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 (2017), Chuck revisits Broken Arrow (1996) and the documentary Chuck Norris Vs Communism (2015), and BJ marathons Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet (2017) and weighs in on Kung Fury (2015). All this, plus listener correspondence, too! Enjoy!

Space Chimps (2008) concludes APEril with an all-star voice cast and one-star 3D animation. Ham III (Andy Samberg) is forcibly recruited into a space journey through a wormhole with Luna (Cheryl Hines) and Titan (Patrick Warburton). Can they save a new planet from the evil Zartog (Jeff Daniels)? Will this kids movie sneak in a reference newer than 1988? Will we stop doing Patrick Warburton impressions? Only one way to find out!

After the break Harlo is iffy on La La Land (2016), Maki gushes about Alien (1979) and we take a metric ton of e-mails, voicemails and Patreon shoutouts. Enjoy!

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!

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!

Ghosts of Mars (2001) has been requested so often that episode 350 felt like the proper time to review it. Ice Cube, Natasha Henstridge, Pam Grier and Jason Statham must battle Mars-infected zombies, trust issues, and really, really bad editing. Can we (and John Carpenter) survive this one?

After the break we talk a little more about Sausage Party (2016) and take some listener correspondence. Enjoy!

Episode seven is the finale for the Summer Movie Series and we end it with a dumb joke as we cover Summer Glau in 2006’s MAMMOTH and Donna Summer in 1978’s THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY. What a way to end this particular theme. Enjoy!

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!
