The Lost Empire (1985) is the debut movie of Jim Wynorski. A team of martial arts knowin’ women enter an underground tournament on a secret island in order to locate a jewel that will be used to power a doomsday device. Or something? We expected lots of jokes and nudity, which we got. Was it enough?

Second half is a random grab bag of movies with The Accountant (2016), O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000), and Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (1994). Harlo also discusses the documentary Lucha Mexico (2016) before we take some listener e-mails. 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!
