Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast384 – Spacehunter – The Forbidden Arizone

Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone (1983) is a b-movie space adventure staring Peter Strauss, Molly Ringwald, Ernie Hudson and Michael Ironside, but there’s a budget behind it.

After the break Harlo & Chuck superhero it up with Spider Man: Homecoming (2017), Wonder Woman (2017) and Power Rangers (2017), before Maki checks in on his magical journey with Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007) and Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince (2009).

BMFcast380 – Cherry 2000 – Butte Nuke

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast380 – Cherry 2000 – Butte Nuke

Cherry 2000 (1987) is the tale of a man and his sex robot. When Sam Treadwell’s (David Andrews) robo-wife short-circuits, he starts on a journey into the wastelands to find a new one. Helping him is an unlikely tracker (Melanie Griffith), but they have to avoid the angry Murder Dad cult led by Lester (Tim Thomerson). Yes, this movie is as odd as it sounds.

After the break Harlo gets Linklater’d as he compares Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) and Boyhood (2014), while Maki continues his magical journey with Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002). Enjoy!

BMFcast378 – Streets of Fire – The Whoopi Rotation

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast378 – Streets of Fire – The Whoopi Rotation

Streets of Fire (1984) welcomes director Walter Hill to the hall of BMFcast alums. Michael Paré is a mercenary hired by Rick Moranis to track down his rock singer girlfriend, Diane Lane, who’s been kidnapped by Willem Dafoe. This “Rock & Roll Fable” has style for days, but is the substance enough to push it into Jox territory?

After the break we talk about The Lego Batman Movie (2017) before discussing Fist Fight (2017) and its similarities to Three O’Clock High (1987). We take some voicemails, e-mails and even an MP3-mail, too! Enjoy!

BMFcast Extra 026 – My Young Auntie

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast Extra 026 – My Young Auntie

A “modern” setting and the potential for lady kung fu were what lured us into this Shaw Brothers effort, which might have been a mistake. However, one of us still thinks the last 30 minutes of the movie are fantastic. Press play and find out who.
