Dollman (1991) brings back the triple threat of Tim Thomerson, Charles Band, and Albert Pyun in the story of a hard-boiled alien cop who happens to be the size of a doll when he crash lands on earth. Can he stop a ruthless group of gangbangers led by Jackie Earle Haley and the disembodied doll-sized head of the criminal he was chasing?
In the second half it’s time for our annual GOLDEN JOX AWARDS! We tell you our favorite movies of the year for 2016 in what becomes a super-sized second half. Enjoy!
The Ice Pirates (1984) marks a space classic unseen since the childhoods of some podcast members, but does it hold up as adults? Can a bevy of BMFcast alums overcome the randomness and weird tone?
Spaced Invaders (1990) found its way onto Bluray this week so we decided we should check it out. It’s full of watermelon aliens and wacky townsfolk but a surprising amount of jokes actually work.
Peacemaker (1990) is our latest discovery. It features both Robert Forster and Robert Davi in a tale of dueling space aliens, killer car chases and huge explosions. Who’s good? Who’s bad? Hit play and find out.
In the second half we chat about Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation (and flashback to Mission: Impossible 2). Also, Lost Soul, Wet Hot American Summer (both the film and the Netflix series) and the entirety of Californication. Enjoy!
Detention (2011) is a bit of a surprise for us. We went in only because it’s from the same director of Torque and what we ended up getting may shock you (because it did us).
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie (1995) is our very unofficial tribute to the idea of KaiJune that ends in a CGI nightmare of sadness. But the bad guy is the best thing about this one.
Voyage of the Rock Aliens (1984) is week 4 of Rocktober’s movie. This time we bring along the incomparable Pia Zadora to this low budget Sci-Fi zany rock musical party. There’s gags aplenty and more of them work than they should.
Second half we discuss some random movies including Grave Encounters and then get spooky answering some listener emails. Enjoy!
Super Buddies (2013) is the wrap up movie to Dogust and our first Disney movie ever. Since the inception of the Air Bud franchise, it’s all led to this. Five puppies gain super powers (besides being able to talk) and fight an evil alien. Its G-rating could have been grating but it’s better than you’d think.
Second half we talk The World’s End, a pair of Korean movies (The Man From Nowhere and I’m a Cyborg, But That’s Okay) and get Dieselized with Pitch Black. Plus emails and even a brand new contest for you to enter, dear listener. Enjoy!
The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across The 8th Dimension (1984) is this week’s review from 1984. That title was long enough to type so we’ll let the review speak for itself.
Second half we pick our winners for the Facebook Fan contest as we cross 100! Plus, we take a voicemail topic and discuss our favorite Westerns/Samurai films.
Zone Troopers (1985) is reviewed and we are joined once again by Shiny Lights TStrel. This one is brought to us by Charles Band and directed by the writer of Arena. While not quite the unanimous winner that was, we still manage to have plenty of fun with this one.
Then second half it’s all Oscar talk. We give our picks, wishes and regrets on the entire showdown.
