BMFcast404 – Nighthawks – Peek A Boo Cop

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast404 – Nighthawks – Peek A Boo Cop

Nighthawks (1981) combines two of our favorites, Rutger Hauer and Sylvester Stallone (along with Billy Dee Williams) in the story of a couple beat cops tasked with stopping an international terrorist. Does this slow burn thriller pay off for us?

In the second half we go nuts with movies, as we’ve all been quite busy watching the movie based on The Room (2003), The Disaster Artist (2017); hit up Netflix for Master of None and the longly-titled documentary Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond – Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton (2017); catch up on some new comedies in The House (2017) and Baywatch (2017); get weird with Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) and weirder with Colossal (2017); and delve into blockbuster fare with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017), Jurassic World (2015) and Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015). That might be the longest sentence we’ve ever put together.

BMFcast Extra 056 – Fuzz

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast Extra 056 – Fuzz

Fuzz (1972) is a hard one to talk about, so we go off on tangents like “Why is Burt Reynolds famous?” and “Yul Brynner’s voice: What’s up with that?”

BMFcast391 – Maniac Cop 2 – Jason X To Pay Respects

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast391 – Maniac Cop 2 – Jason X To Pay Respects

Maniac Cop 2 (1990) is a much-requested movie chock-full of BMFcast alums. With Robert Z’Dar as the titular cop back on the beat, there are plenty of beatdowns, mutilations, incinerations, and (especially) defenestrations. We all know this will get Jox. The question is how many?

After the break we do a lot of recent movie catch-up with Harlo checking out Tom Cruise’s The Mummy (2017) and continuing the Harry Potter journey with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016). Chuck revisits Prometheus (2012) before diving into the icky pool that is Alien Covenant (2017) and Maki gets into the filmmaking of Kong Skull Island (2017). Enjoy!

BMFcast365 – Firepower – The Mediocre Warrior

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!

BMFcast357 – Dollman – “Dullman”

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast357 – Dollman – “Dullman”

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!

BMFcast349 – American Rampage – American Sampage

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast349 – American Rampage – American Sampage

bmf-ep349-slider

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!

BMFcast339 – Out for Justice – Crackheads Get Cracked Heads

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast339 – Out for Justice – Crackheads Get Cracked Heads

BMF-Ep339-slider

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!

BMFcast337 – Helen Stunt

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!

BMFcast335 – Haymaker From A Peacemaker

BMF-Ep335-slider

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!
