Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast397 – Terrorvision – Jagoozi

Terrorvision (1986) is another Charles Band production with malfunctioning technology. This time a family’s satellite dish brings a strange alien creature into their home. What happens next is, well, it’s something.

After the break we go nuts with movies current and older with Baby Driver (2017), The Mummy (2017), Ghostbusters (1984), Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), Mulan (1998), Insidious (2010), Steve Zissou in The Life Aquatic (2004) and Cult of Chucky (2017).

BMFcast380 – Cherry 2000 – Butte Nuke

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast380 – Cherry 2000 – Butte Nuke

Cherry 2000 (1987) is the tale of a man and his sex robot. When Sam Treadwell’s (David Andrews) robo-wife short-circuits, he starts on a journey into the wastelands to find a new one. Helping him is an unlikely tracker (Melanie Griffith), but they have to avoid the angry Murder Dad cult led by Lester (Tim Thomerson). Yes, this movie is as odd as it sounds.

After the break Harlo gets Linklater’d as he compares Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) and Boyhood (2014), while Maki continues his magical journey with Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002). Enjoy!

BMFcast377 – City Hunter – Defeneskate

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast377 – City Hunter – Defeneskate

City Hunter (1993) concludes AniMAY with Jackie Chan starring in a live-action adaptation of the popular manga. Hunter is tracking down a newspaper magnate’s runaway daughter on a luxury cruise populated by secret agent ladies, card-throwing assassins, and a group of terrorists led by Richard Norton and Gary Daniels. It’s tough to properly describe the zaniness of this movie, but trust us, it’s ZANY.

In the second half, Maki and Harlo watch Alien Covenant (2017) and have lots of thoughts about it. Chuck and Maki also discuss Wolverine’s last hurrah as Logan (2017). Enjoy!

BMFcast364 – Petey Wheatstraw – Alabama Crabs

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast364 – Petey Wheatstraw – Alabama Crabs

Petey Wheatstraw (1977) concludes Blaxploitation History Month with the return of Rudy Ray Moore. He’s a man who’s sold his soul to the devil for revenge. Will he end up getting caught as the devil’s son-in-law? More importantly, will RRM make a coherent movie? (Spoiler: NOPE.)

After the break Chuck talks about Arrival (2016) and The Girl on the Train (2016) while Harlo continues the Pinball Project with The Shadow (1994). We also take some listener e-mails. Enjoy!

BMFcast349 – American Rampage – American Sampage

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!

BMFcast347 – Blood Debts – Dubbedebts

Blood Debts (1985) concludes Bloodtober as Richard Harrison (the man with the Garfield Phone!) returns to take revenge on criminals of the world in this Death Wish knockoff. But when he gets blackmailed into becoming a vigilante hitman, that’s when things really go crazy. Trust us, watch this one.

After the break Harlo talks about Kevin Hart and The Rock’s Central Intelligence (2016) before we take some e-mails and go on tangents about high school trigonometry (or something.) Enjoy!

BMFcast322 – Trigger Warning

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?

Second half we briefly talk Deadpool before taking listener correspondence about All The President’s Men that devolves into us discussing how much we are old men. 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?

After the break Maki goes first person with Hardcore Henry, Harlo enjoys Sisters way more than he expected, and we give some Patreon shoutouts. Enjoy!

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.

Second half we talk about The Duff, Dumb and Dumber To, The Lego Movie and more including a lengthy discussion of the career of M. Night Shyamalan without having actually seen The Visit. Enjoy!

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.

 

Second half we discuss Flash Gordon, The Legend of the Drunken Master and Hercules. Plus more including listener correspondence. Enjoy!
