Demonic Toys (1992) comes to us from Charles Band, Peter Manoogian (director of Arena and Eliminators), and David S. Goyer(!) When a demon brings toys to life to wreak havoc in an old warehouse only a pregnant cop, a chicken delivery boy and a runaway girl can stop them.

After the break Harlo checks out CHiPs (2017) and Chuck gets all music documentary-ish with The Defiant Ones (2017) and All Things Must Pass: The Rise and Fall of Tower Records (2015). This leads to talk of minimum wage jobs and other tomfoolery before we answer a bunch of your e-mails and voicemails. Enjoy!

The Quest (1996) is our farewell tribute to Sir Roger Moore. He’s a buccaneer who captures Jean Claude Van-Damme at sea and eventually enters him into a deadly fighting tournament in order to win a giant golden dragon. Oh and JCVD directed the film as well.

The second half is filled to the brim with movies we watched over the 4th of July break. Harlo’s got Kong: Skull Island and Life, Chuck hit the Redbox jackpot with The Founder, CHIPs, Passengers, The Lego Batman Movie, Fist Fight, and Patriots Day and then Harlo and BJ tag team the Netflix series GLOW. Enjoy!

Trespass (1992) welcomes back decorated alums Walter Hill, Ice-T, Ice Cube, Bill Paxton and more in the story of two firefighters searching an abandoned building for gold when they accidentally stumble into a drug deal gone wrong. Things only get worse from there.

After the break BJ and Harlo love Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver (2017), Maki almost loves Wonder Woman (2017), Chuck kinda loves Anchorman 2’s R-Rated cut (2013), and the Maki’s magical journey continues with Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005). Enjoy!

College Kickboxers (1991) has our intrepid hero, college freshman James, testing his martial arts skills against his roommate Mark, his Sifu Wing, and a gang of supremely racist dudes named the White Tigers. Will our good guys win and save the dojo (aka rec center?) What do you think?

After the break Maki continues his magical journey with Alfonso Cuaron’s Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004) and a listener e-mail about Beauty and the Beast (2017) sparks discussion of remakes and risk aversion in modern Hollywood. Enjoy!

City Hunter (1993) concludes AniMAY with Jackie Chan starring in a live-action adaptation of the popular manga. Hunter is tracking down a newspaper magnate’s runaway daughter on a luxury cruise populated by secret agent ladies, card-throwing assassins, and a group of terrorists led by Richard Norton and Gary Daniels. It’s tough to properly describe the zaniness of this movie, but trust us, it’s ZANY.

In the second half, Maki and Harlo watch Alien Covenant (2017) and have lots of thoughts about it. Chuck and Maki also discuss Wolverine’s last hurrah as Logan (2017). Enjoy!
