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!
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!
Doom (2005) has been on The List™ since the start of the podcast, and 324 episodes in we finally review this videogame adaptation starring The Rock, Karl Urban and Rosamund Pike. Can The Rock and Bones save this poorly lit movie?
After the break Harlo talks Captain America: Civil War and Jodorowsky’s Dune, JapaniMAY continues as BJ chimes in on Redline, Maki and Harlo love Miyazaki’s My Neighbor Totoro & Kiki’s Delivery Service, and Chuck even joins the animated fun with Duck Tales: The Movie(! ?) It’s a jam-packed half. Enjoy!
Silent Night, Deadly Night 4: Initiation (1990) helps us celebrate the grand tradition of Christmas with body horror, witchcraft, Clint Howard and other general unpleasantness. Does it get us in the spirit? (Spoiler: Look at the episode title.)
After the break we talk a couple huge releases, What We Do In The Shadows and Ant-Man! Oh yeah, and a sequel in a pretty well known series, Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Have you heard of it? We give our thoughts, both spoiler-free and spoiler HEAVY. If you’re one of the 8 people that hasn’t seen it yet, you have been warned. Enjoy!
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.
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.
Prom Night III: The Last Kiss (1990) is a hard movie to categorize. It’s supposed to be a horror sequel to a prior BMFcast reviewed movie but ends up being much more of a comedy spoof. This probably wasn’t helped by the fact we watched the US DVD cut which is edited down to near TV movie level of sanitized. But somehow we all still enjoy it pretty well.
Crash And Burn (1990) is Charles Band’s unofficial sequel to BMFcast classic Robot Jox (now available on Blu ray!) We discover it’s a Robot Jox sequel in name only, though it has its fair share of robots. Will they be enough to make us recommend this low budget sci-fi/horror combo?
After the break we get into all sorts of movie talk as we wrap up last week’s Terminator series discussion and give our thoughts on the brand new Terminator Genisys. Chuck talks about his 3-day weekend movie marathon, Harlo weighs in on Chappie and Maggie, BJ lets us know if Kingsman: The Secret Service is worth your time and we even get a bunch of listener e-mails in. It’s super-sized, so get listening and enjoy!
The Adventures of Ford Fairlane (1990) continues Car May Diem! The Diceman introduces us to the true meaning of pain in this “comedy” where he’s portraying the biggest a-hole on the planet. It’s not a question of whether this is getting bags, it’s how many bags we’re giving it.
Second half BJ introduces some friends to BMFcast classics The Room and Megaforce while the rest of us fill up time talking about some superhero movie that came out last week called Avengers: Age of Ultron. Enjoy!
Shakma (1990) is the thrilling tale of a LARPing session gone totally wrong when a chemically altered, incredibly angry baboon is unleashed on an unsuspecting group of med students. And their doors. Lots and lots of doors.
Second half we wrap up our talk of Last Man on Earth, Chuck talks Jackie Chan with Police Story and then shifts gears to The Master, for some reason. On the eve of Furious 7, we revisit discussion of the Fast & Furious movies. Again. After that it’s some listener e-mails. Enjoy!
