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!

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 Return of Captain Invincible (1983) is our return to musicals and boy, this one sure is a thing. It has Alan Arkin, Christopher Lee, songs by Richard O’Brien and a whole slew of head-scratching moments.

In the second half we talk Star Trek Beyond, Independence Day 2, The Flintstones and listen to your voicemails. Enjoy!

More like Amityville Snore, am I right? Yep, I am. Because Amityville: The Evil Escapes (1989) and The Amityville Curse (1990) will cure your insomnia wicked quick. Luckily our discussion is fun, so come enjoy our misery.

The Lost Empire (1985) is the debut movie of Jim Wynorski. A team of martial arts knowin’ women enter an underground tournament on a secret island in order to locate a jewel that will be used to power a doomsday device. Or something? We expected lots of jokes and nudity, which we got. Was it enough?

Second half is a random grab bag of movies with The Accountant (2016), O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000), and Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (1994). Harlo also discusses the documentary Lucha Mexico (2016) before we take some listener e-mails. Enjoy!

Who would have thought that after watching the theatrical Amityville trilogy, Amityville 2 would be the absolute winner in the quality department? This sorta-third installment has 3-D gags galore and Meg Ryan, but little else. Enjoy our sadness.

The Apple (1980) is another long requested title. It’s from the early days of Cannon Films, and it’s INSANE. So insane that Maki couldn’t handle it and had to skip the show.

Second half has talk of the director’s cut of That Thing You Do, Lights Out, both Escape From New York and Escape From L.A., and some TV Talk™ with The Grand Tour and Mars. Enjoy!

Amityville II is the odd case of a sequel being WAY better than the original, despite having a WILD amount of problems in it. Come listen to our breakdown of this underrated sequel!

American Rampage (1989) is very American, but doesn’t have quite as much Rampaging as we hoped. A pair of cops are on the trail of drug smugglers or something? But there are plenty of random explosions, character deaths, and random nudity which gets our attention. Is it enough?

In the second half Harlo gives his take on Doctor Strange (2016) and we take on some listener mails and recommendations. Enjoy!

Eliminators (1986) returns us to the fun lunacy of Charles Band’s Empire Pictures productions. When you have a mandroid, a scientist, a mercenary pirate, a ninja, and a robot sidekick joining forces to take on a time-traveling villain then you’ve got a recipe for success, my friend. Did we mention they fight cavemen, too? This movie’s got it all.

Second half we really load up on movies with discussion of a bunch of 2016 releases (Ghostbusters, London Has Fallen, Mascots, The Neon Demon), then go back in time with some older horror with An American Werewolf In London (1981) and the Scream series. Enjoy!
