BMF-Ep313-slider

Sweet Jesus, Preacherman (1973) wraps up this year’s Blaxploitation History Month. Can TC from Magnum PI convince us he’s a hitman convincing churchgoers he’s their new preacher? Will he clean up the streets or end as shady as William Smith (yes, him, again), who hired him? Also, can the movie possibly live up to its awesome poster?

The second half is turned over to you, the listeners as we take a boatload of e-mails and voicemails discussing movies that misunderstand technology, Lucha Underground, blaxploitation’s role in modern entertainment, and even the very essence of Chuck Fine™. Enjoy!

Trouble Man (1972) continues Blaxploitation History Month as Robert Hooks plays Mr. T, the coolest protagonist in the history of cool protagonists. He never loses his head, even when caught between multiple gangs and a police chief out to get him. Trust us, watch this movie.

After the break Harlo tells us how much he loves Deadpool while Chuck continues the Ryan Reynolds train as he takes the bullet and watches R.I.P.D. Enjoy!

Hammer (1972) continues Blaxploitation History Month with a Fred Williamson classic. He’s a boxer who wants to keep his head down and his nose clean but the entire world wants to tell him he’s terrible. William Smith is along to keep the evil racist quotient as high as possible.

Second half BJ talks Danger 5, Maki reminds us that Unmasking The Idol is awesome, and Harlo visits his vampire side with The Hunger and Near Dark. Then we close out with a new batch of listener e-mails and voicemails. Enjoy!

Willie Dynamite (1974) wraps up Blaxploitation History Month 2015 (a week late, but still). Gordon from Sesame Street is the world’s most charismatic pimp with the world’s coolest wardrobe and the world’s coolest car. So of course everyone in New York City wants to take him down.

Second half we catch up with talk of Big Hero 6, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, Spoils of Babylon, Speed, and Chuck catches up on a BMFcast classic, Arena! Enjoy!

GUNFACE

Cleopatra Jones and the Casino of Gold (1975) continues Blaxploitation History Month. Tamara Dobson and the Karate Brothers return for this bigger, crazier, Hong Kong-ier sequel. Is a whole lot of face makeup and a ridiculous amount of third-act carnage enough to top the original?

 

Second half we discuss Kingsman: The Secret Service,  The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and take a brand new batch of crazy listener emails and suggestions. Enjoy!

Dolemite (1975) officially begins Blaxploitation History Month 2015! We finally experience Rudy Ray Moore’s iconic character, but can we dig it? Or are we no-business, born-insecure, junkyard mother… You know the rest.

Second half we talk TV on the big screen with some Game of Thrones IMAX, before re-visiting Arnold’s mid-90s CG classic Eraser. After that we attempt to wring a few laughs out of Bridesmaids before once again delving into listener emails. Can you dig it? Yeah, we can dig it. Enjoy!

BMFcast236 – B.I.T.E.S.

Once you start it, you can't put it down.

C.H.O.M.P.S. (1979) is our first movie for Dogust 2: Dog Harder. It’s a rated G movie about a robot security dog so he doesn’t mechanically bite anyone’s face off. What a shame.

 

Second half we kind of forgot to watch movies so we end up talking a bit of TV and discuss how much Hulu sucks. Enjoy!
