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!
2011’s AMITYVILLE HAUNTING starts the third generation of Amityville movies. None of them are connected, most likely. This one is a found footage effort that acknowledges lots of backstory though, so it was mildly interesting to say the least. Enjoy what wound up being our Amityville finale!
Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance (2015) is our third entry for Sequel Month, and boy do we have a tough time making sense of this thing. Much of the cast from the first film returns, along with a gaggle of porn stars and Tommy Wiseau. Because why not?
In the second half we talk Deadpool and then BJ attempts listener correspondence because Maki is out on leave. Enjoy!
Deadliest Prey (2013) is the return of Mike Danton as he’s once again pulled into the dangerous game of man huntin’ by the evil Hogan in the sequel to BMFcast favorite David A. Prior’s classic Deadly Prey! Pretty much anyone that survived the first movie reprises their role in what amounts to a remake. Plus there are hackers and webcams. Does it work?
After the break we talk X-Men: Apocalypse, Step-Brothers, Electric Boogaloo: The Wild Untold Story of Cannon Films, and take some listener e-mails that devolve into JapaniMAY madness. Enjoy!
Kindergarten Cop 2 (2016) brings decorated BMF alum Dolph Lundgren back to the show in a sequel to the Arnold original. He’s tracking down a hacked Witness Protection list and Bill Bellamy is along for the ride. Along with a dozen kindergarteners and some new-age liberal parenting, of course.
Second half Chuck discusses The Exterminator with Steve James and Exterminator 2 with a bunch of stuntmen. Maki continues his JapaniMAY trip with Patlabor: The Movie and Macross: Do You Remember Love. After that we all take some listener correspondence. Enjoy!
Russell Madness (2015) is, predictably, the conclusion to the March To Russell Madness! Robert Vince returns to direct another tale of talking dogs and monkeys doing things they shouldn’t be doing. Like joining pro wrestling federations. Will we become Russell Maniacs by the time it’s all over?
Hunt To Kill (2010) is how we celebrate episode 316 and the March to Russell Madness. It stars Stone Cold Steve Austin (get it!? 3:16!?) as a border patrol agent who loses his partner and has a daughter who gets kidnapped by Gil Bellows and his crew and… Blah blah blah, just get to killing dudes, Steve. Thankfully, in the third act, he does.
After the break Harlo and Chuck discuss 10 Cloverfield Lane as non-spoilery as possible and we catch up on a batch of listener correspondence, including a bunch of brand new voicemails. Enjoy!
Step Up Revolution (2012) returns us to the world of 3D dancing. No more competitions, it’s time for some flash mobs and dancing to save the rec cent… er, latin club and surrounding neighborhood. Or something.
American Ultra (2015) returns us back to the future as we finally depart the ’90s with a flop from last year. Is there a hidden gem in a stoner Jesse Eisenberg version of The Bourne Identity? Or is it all flash and no substance? And is Kristen Stewart actually kinda fun in this? What is happening?
Second half we catch up on a ton of recent films from the theater and home theater with The Big Short, The Revenant, The Martian, Straight Outta Compton, Jupiter Ascending, Blackhat, Tomorrowland, Unfinished Business, Fifty Shades of Grey, and fifty shades of listener correspondence (including frightening Fiber One bar usage.) Enjoy!
Detention (2011) is a bit of a surprise for us. We went in only because it’s from the same director of Torque and what we ended up getting may shock you (because it did us).
