BMFcast383 – The Quest – Orson Welles’ Orphan Vision

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast383 – The Quest – Orson Welles’ Orphan Vision

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!

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast382 – Trespass – Ice-Trustworthy

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!

BMFcast381 – College Kickboxers – The Chipparoo

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast381 – College Kickboxers – The Chipparoo

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!

BMFcast377 – City Hunter – Defeneskate

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast377 – City Hunter – Defeneskate

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!

BMFcast 376 – Fist of the North Star – Big Lots Guillotine

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast 376 – Fist of the North Star – Big Lots Guillotine

Fist of the North Star (1995) continues AniMAY, with a live-action adaptation of the popular anime/manga. With Gary Daniels, Malcolm McDowell, Chris Penn, Costas Mandylor and Clint Howard supplying lots of kicking, head-exploding and general post-apocalypticness, does it work for us?

After the break we discuss Prometheus (2012) in preparation for Alien Covenant (2017), and Chuck makes an ill-advised visit to The Love Guru (2008) before we take some listener correspondence. Enjoy!

BMFcast367 – Ricochet – Clown Life

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast367 – Ricochet – Clown Life

Ricochet (1991) welcomes Denzel Washington to the show! He’s a cop/D.A. who is pursued by a pathologically obsessed John Lithgow in an utterly baffling ’90s thriller. Ice-T is a gang leader who might help Denzel and Jesse Ventura appears to make this a March To Wrestlemania tie-in, of course.

In the second half Harlo & Maki discuss Get Out (2017) and Kubo and the Two Strings (2016) while BJ gives his thoughts on I Don’t Feel At Home In This World Anymore (2017). Enjoy!

BMFcast366 – Terminal Rush – Dragon Ass

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast366 – Terminal Rush – Dragon Ass

Terminal Rush (1996) seemed like a great way to celebrate our 8th(!) anniversary, as well as continue the March To Wrestlemania. Rowdy Roddy Piper leading a gang of terrorists, with only Don “The Dragon” Wilson to stop him in a “Die Hard on a dam” movie? What could go wrong? Sadly, a lot.

After the break Harlo weighs in on Logan (2017), Maki continues the comic booking with Doctor Strange (2016), and we discuss Disney’s new golden age of animation with Moana (2016). All this and plenty of e-mails and reminiscing. Enjoy!

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast365 – Firepower – The Mediocre Warrior

Firepower (1993) brings back BMFcast alums Gary Daniels and Chad McQueen as cops from the distant future of 2007, on the hunt for The Swordsman (played by Jim Hellwig aka The Ultimate Warrior) and a cure for AIDS. To find both they’ll need to enter an underground martial arts tournament. As you do. This year’s Road To Wrestlemania is officially here, and we’re on it.

After the break it’s a packed second half with discussion of Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet (2017), Gone in Sixty Seconds (2000), and Aaron Sorkin’s Charlie Wilson’s War (2007) and Malice (1993). We also discuss the many great roles of Bill Paxton before taking a boatload of e-mails and voicemails. Enjoy!
