Magic Cop (1990) is our wrap up to Coptober. Also known as Mr. Vampire 5, this movie involves a Taoist cop who fights a drug ring who uses enthralled vampires to move product. Yep. That’s what it’s about.
Keaton’s Cop (1990) is the penultimate entry in Coptober 1990. Lee Majors, Abe Vigoda, and Don Rickles team up to take down mobsters. And also, osteoporosis.
After the break Harlo gives his take on Crimson Peak, BJ checks out the original Oldboy, Maki watches one of Chuck’s 31 in 31 recommendations, Dead & Buried, and we discuss prequels after a listener e-mail. Enjoy!
Vampire Cop (1990) continues our Coptober 1990 celebration. It’s a shot-on-video “horror action” movie that has a bit too much faked slow motion and not enough coherent storytelling. It does have copious amounts of nudity and unintentional comedy, though.
Cop Target (1990) continues Coptober with the tale of a seen it all cop who is assigned to provide protection to a dead DEA agent’s wife on a tropical island. She’s very ungrateful for his service.
Top Cop (1990) is how we begin Coptober. Malone is a murder machine of a policeman who looks like the sad amalgamation of Dan Haggerty and Ted Dibiase.
Second half it’s all listener correspondence. Enjoy!
Night Visions (1990) has us celebrating the work of the late Wes Craven with his TV movie/pilot about a loose cannon cop and a psychic paired up to take down a serial killer.
Second half we simply walk into the final conversation about The Hobbit series and let things devolve from there. Then tackle some listener correspondence. Enjoy!
China O’Brien (1990) is our movie for the week. Cynthia Rothrock is back to kick and punch some vengeance into a lawless small town and also run a successful campaign for sheriff.
Death Warrant (1990) is our movie of the week. JCVD goes undercover in a prison in a series of terrible ideas and shaky motives only to come up against The Sandman. They have a fight, Van Damme wins. Van Damme.
Stone Cold (1991) comes a hundred episodes after we wanted to watch it the first time. Brian “The Boz” Bosworth is an undercover cop who dispenses all kinds of explosive justice which is, coincidentally, the best kind of justice. Lance Henriksen is along for the ride and laughing all over this Craig R. Baxley epic action classic.
Second half we talk a myriad of movies and get right in to some listener correspondence. Enjoy!
Dead Heat (1988) is reviewed this week. As it was presented to us: “Treat Williams, Joe Piscopo & Vincent Price. Zombie buddy cops!” We had to watch it obviously.
