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!
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!
American Rampage (1989) is very American, but doesn’t have quite as much Rampaging as we hoped. A pair of cops are on the trail of drug smugglers or something? But there are plenty of random explosions, character deaths, and random nudity which gets our attention. Is it enough?
In the second half Harlo gives his take on Doctor Strange (2016) and we take on some listener mails and recommendations. 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!
Trancers (1984) returns us to the works of Charles Band. Jack Deth is a good cop who lost his way after his wife was killed by Whistler’s trancers, zombie-like dudes who do his evil bidding. So he travels to the distant past of 1985 to meet Helen Hunt and keep himself from being erased from history. All that in a 76-minute movie!
After the break Harlo has some Suicide Squad hot takes, Maki weighs in on Stranger Things, and Friday the 13th Part 9: Jason Goes To Hell gets insulted. All this plus listener e-mails! 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!
Maniac Cop (1988) is a BMF alumni-packed murderfest, where an evil Robert Z’Dar is on a murderous rampage and only Tom Atkins, Laurene Landon and Bruce Campbell can stop him! Sort of. William Smith is also along to act menacing.
Second half we talk about a plethora of movies including Harlo’s thoughts on The Brothers Grimsby, Zootopia, and the documentary Nintendo Quest, Maki discusses Trumbo and gives his thoughts on a solo viewing of Samurai Cop 2, and Chuck watches 2015’s Fantastic Four and White Line Fever. You can probably figure out which one he liked better. Enjoy!
Kindergarten Cop 2 (2016) brings decorated BMF alum Dolph Lundgren back to the show in a sequel to the Arnold original. He’s tracking down a hacked Witness Protection list and Bill Bellamy is along for the ride. Along with a dozen kindergarteners and some new-age liberal parenting, of course.
Second half Chuck discusses The Exterminator with Steve James and Exterminator 2 with a bunch of stuntmen. Maki continues his JapaniMAY trip with Patlabor: The Movie and Macross: Do You Remember Love. After that we all take some listener correspondence. 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?
12 Rounds marks the triumphant return of John Cena and our 7th anniversary of podcasting! If you’ve seen Die Hard With a Vengeance, you’ve seen most of this movie. Can Cena running around destroying New Orleans while Aidan Gillen keeps calling his cell help that?
