Superfights (1995) is one hell of a movie. This tale of an energetic youngster who joins a UFC/WWE/crime syndicate is CONSTANT action, training for action, or talking about action or training for action. It’s exhausting in the best way, so much so that our first half is packed!

The second half is no slouch though, as Chuck takes a look at the BMFcast BC movies Road House 2: Last Call and Navy Seals. Also, Harlo has the first two Friday the 13th movies along with Deathgasm and Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. Lastly, BJ defends Ghostbusters 2 from the haters, which leads to inevitable talk about those pesky Ghostbusters reboot haters. Enjoy!

Double Team (1997) brings Jean-Claude Van Damme back into the BMFcast fold, and he’s brought Dennis Rodman, Mickey Rourke, and Paul Freeman along for the ride. We can’t quite explain the plot, but there’s mercenaries, guns dealers and a super-secret Illuminati spy ring thing going on? Sure, that sounds about right. We talk about it for probably a bit too long.

After the break we had theme weekends as Harlo revisits the DC cinematic universe with the Nolan Batman trilogy and weighs in on Batman v Superman Ultimate Edition, Chuck sports it up with Foxcatcher, The Karate Kid, and Rocky 4, and Maki gets animated with Toy Story 2 and Happy Feet. Enjoy!

Revenge of the Ninja (1983) is Sho Kosugi and Cannon’s return to the world of ninjas murdering people in office buildings. This time decorated BMFcast alum Sam Firstenberg is directing and Kosugi is the hero, facing off against a double-dealing, hypnotizing american ninja. Oh yeah, and he fights random Street Fighter 2 characters, too.

After the break Harlo gives his take on Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping and revisits Inside Man, Chuck watches Cannon’s 1983 Hercules movie and BJ goes and makes his own movie! (Kinda.) Enjoy!

Enter The Ninja (1981) is a Cannon classic from the inimitable Menahem Golan. Franco Nero plays the whitest ninja while Sho Kosugi plays the most kill-happy. We also get a healthy dose of crazy bosses and fun henchmen.

After the break Harlo talks more Hardcore Henry, Chuck gives his verdict on HBO’s Confirmation and take more listener correspondence! Enjoy!

Ninja Busters (1984) is a recently unearthed gem never released to theaters until last August. We’re not gonna mince words, this is a super-fun martial arts comedy you should see as soon as possible. Movies like this are why we do the podcast.

After the break Harlo weighs in on Tarantino’s Hateful Eight, Maki catches up before the X-Files returns with The X-Files: I Want To Believe (2008) and we discuss Netflix sensation Making A Murderer. Enjoy!

The Perfect Weapon (1991) begins our 1991 Theme Year! Jeff Speakman was positioned as the next big (white) martial arts star. We wonder why that never happened, since this is a pretty awesome debut. HE’S GOT THE POWER.

After that it’s a super-sized second half as we award our Golden Jox 2015 awards! What were our favorite movies released last year? If you guessed Mad Max: Fury Road and Star Wars: The Force Awakens were on there, you’d have guessed well! Find out what else we loved last year and expect a few surprises along the way. Enjoy!
