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.

BMFcast371 – Link – John Monklane

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast371 – Link – John Monklane

Link (1986) is the second entry in this year’s APEril celebration. It’s a weird genre blend that eventually becomes a bit of a slasher film as a mad monkey named Link goes after young Elisabeth Shue. Terence Stamp is here to have weird hair.

In the second half there’s more Rogue One: A Star Wars Story talk, and also some quick thoughts on the Burt Reynolds / Hal Needham documentary The Bandit. Enjoy!

Next up in our path through the world of the Shaw Brothers is 1980’s TWO CHAMPIONS OF SHAOLIN, which features The Venoms, a squad of martial arts masters. Probably wasn’t the one of theirs we should have started with, but here we are.

Like last week’s film, this one is available on Amazon Prime. And if you want to find more Shaw Brothers movies online, check out www.shawbrothersuniverse.com for links to every place you can legally watch these things. It’s a very helpful site!
