Blood Warriors (1993) continues Bloodtober with the return of decorated BMFcast alums Sam Firstenberg and David Bradley! Wes is a con who gets bailed out by his old marine buddy Keith from Jakarta. After Keith’s death, Wes must battle a drug cartel, all while fending off advances from Karen, Keith’s sister. From there it takes some odd turns. It’s a random one, for sure.
Second half Maki talks about The Thing (2011) before we get into a new batch of listener correspondence. Enjoy!
Prayer of the Rollerboys (1991) brings Skatember into the distant future, where gangs of trenchcoated drug-dealing rollerbladers control the post-apocalyptic streets of Los Angeles. Is Corey Haim the only one who can stop them? Will he need help from Patricia Arquette? How awesome is Mark Pellegrino in this? All these questions will be answered, and more!
Second half we talk about Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016) before declaring it our shortest half ever. Enjoy!
Out for Justice (1991) brings back Steven Seagal as a “Brooklyn” detective on the hunt for his partner’s killer. It’s from the writer of Road House, so you know it’s already got that going for it. There’s numerous broken limbs, an unhinged, crack-smoking William Forsythe and some great action scenes, along with some amazingly bad italian accents. Did this push it to the upper level of BMFcast favorites?
After the break Maki has a Sausage Party (2016), Chuck recommends you watch The Signal (2014) as soon as possible with as little information about it as possible, we take some listener correspondence, and even give a Patreon update. Enjoy!
Watchers 3 (1994) takes us back to the Watchers franchise and woof, what a dog of a movie this is. Did we mention that it’s our #Dogust movie? Well, it is! So that’s something.
In the second half, Harlo continues his journey through Crystal Lake with Friday the 13th parts 7 and 8, and then we talk about how lights work. It’s entertaining and informative. Enjoy!
Mission of Justice (1992) has BMFcast newcomer Jeff Wincott taking on Brigitte Nielsen’s criminal cult (who happen to fight crime.) He’s got the martial arts moves, and he’s not afraid to use them. If you like painful stuntwork, this is your movie.
In the second half Harlo gives his feelings on Star Trek Beyond and Ghostbusters 2016 while Maki talks Secret Life of Pets in our theatrical corner. Then it’s DC time with Batman: The Killing Joke, and it’s Chuck v Batman V Superman: Ultimate Edition before we wrap things up with a continued journey into Friday the 13th Parts 5 & 6. Enjoy!
Superfights (1995) is one hell of a movie. This tale of an energetic youngster who joins a UFC/WWE/crime syndicate is CONSTANT action, training for action, or talking about action or training for action. It’s exhausting in the best way, so much so that our first half is packed!
The second half is no slouch though, as Chuck takes a look at the BMFcast BC movies Road House 2: Last Call and Navy Seals. Also, Harlo has the first two Friday the 13th movies along with Deathgasm and Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. Lastly, BJ defends Ghostbusters 2 from the haters, which leads to inevitable talk about those pesky Ghostbusters reboot haters. Enjoy!
Double Team (1997) brings Jean-Claude Van Damme back into the BMFcast fold, and he’s brought Dennis Rodman, Mickey Rourke, and Paul Freeman along for the ride. We can’t quite explain the plot, but there’s mercenaries, guns dealers and a super-secret Illuminati spy ring thing going on? Sure, that sounds about right. We talk about it for probably a bit too long.
After the break we had theme weekends as Harlo revisits the DC cinematic universe with the Nolan Batman trilogy and weighs in on Batman v Superman Ultimate Edition, Chuck sports it up with Foxcatcher, The Karate Kid, and Rocky 4, and Maki gets animated with Toy Story 2 and Happy Feet. Enjoy!
Dangerous Men (2005) is our movie for this week, and the episode title is not a joke. (If you’re sensitive about violence towards women, this might be the week to skip. Seriously.) Dangerous Men is the story of a woman wronged who is out for revenge… Sort of. It’s also the story of a cop tracking down a biker named Black Pepper… Sort of. Pieced together over 20+ years of footage and recently re-released by Drafthouse Films, was this “WTF is happening” movie worth the effort?
Hard Hunted (1993) brings us back into the wonderful world of Andy Sidaris. Donna and Nicole are once again tasked with doing something that will involve shooting dudes, blowing up dudes and getting naked with dudes. It’s an Andy Sidaris movie, after all.
Tough and Deadly (1995) continues the March to Russell Madness! Billy Blanks and Roddy Piper, the stars of Back In Action return to kick a LOT of people in the face. Like, an unbelievable amount. Don’t believe us? Watch our face kick supercut!
After the break we get Netflixy as BJ discusses Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny and Harlo gives his take on Pee Wee’s Big Holiday. Chuck revisits Revenge of the Nerds, Maki honors ATCQ by watching Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest and we even take some listener correspondence that might be wrestling related! Enjoy!
