We pumped the brakes and take a detour from our Shaw Brothers-ing to celebrate Fate of the Furious week with two supposed knockoffs: 2007’s Redline and 2003’s Biker Boyz. We learn a lot along the way.

Fist of the North Star (1995) continues AniMAY, with a live-action adaptation of the popular anime/manga. With Gary Daniels, Malcolm McDowell, Chris Penn, Costas Mandylor and Clint Howard supplying lots of kicking, head-exploding and general post-apocalypticness, does it work for us?

After the break we discuss Prometheus (2012) in preparation for Alien Covenant (2017), and Chuck makes an ill-advised visit to The Love Guru (2008) before we take some listener correspondence. Enjoy!

The Shaolin temple gets wrecked, its master is killed, and its students are sent packing. Lots of time passes. People put on plays. They get married. Kids are produced. Every so often, revenge is attempted.

Dragonball Evolution (2009) continues AniMAY! It’a a live action (very loose) adaptation of the long-running manga and anime series. Can Chow Yun-Fat, Emmy Rossum, Ernie Hudson, and James Marsters overcome Justin Chatwin being cast as Goku? Or does it not matter because it just turns into a CG mess anyway?

In the second half Harlo gives his impressions of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 (2017), Chuck revisits Broken Arrow (1996) and the documentary Chuck Norris Vs Communism (2015), and BJ marathons Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet (2017) and weighs in on Kung Fury (2015). All this, plus listener correspondence, too! Enjoy!

BMFcast Extra 026 – My Young Auntie

Posted by: | Comments (0)

A “modern” setting and the potential for lady kung fu were what lured us into this Shaw Brothers effort, which might have been a mistake. However, one of us still thinks the last 30 minutes of the movie are fantastic. Press play and find out who.

Un Gallo con Muchos Huevos (2015) aka Huevos: Little Rooster’s Egg-cellent Adventure marks the return of AniMAY! A young rooster named Toto must fight to save his owner’s farm. Literally. As in cock-fighting. At least it’s more like boxing, with all the requisite montages and fights one would expect. Is this Spanish-language 3D animated adventure our new AniMAY champ?

In the second half, Chuck discusses the Hunger Games series (2012-2015), Maki talks Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) and Office Space (1999), and BJ visits the non-Taco-Bell version of Demolition Man (1993) and the lunacy of Tank Girl (1995). Enjoy!

Space Chimps (2008) concludes APEril with an all-star voice cast and one-star 3D animation. Ham III (Andy Samberg) is forcibly recruited into a space journey through a wormhole with Luna (Cheryl Hines) and Titan (Patrick Warburton). Can they save a new planet from the evil Zartog (Jeff Daniels)? Will this kids movie sneak in a reference newer than 1988? Will we stop doing Patrick Warburton impressions? Only one way to find out!

After the break Harlo is iffy on La La Land (2016), Maki gushes about Alien (1979) and we take a metric ton of e-mails, voicemails and Patreon shoutouts. Enjoy!

BMFcast372 – A*P*E – Col. GD Davis

Posted by: | Comments (0)

A*P*E (1976) continues APEril in grand tradition with a Korean King Kong knockoff with an incredibly low budget. Can abysmal editing, Joanna Kerns’ screaming, and one very annoyed colonel make everything better? (What do you think!?)

In the second half we give our thoughts on the first few episodes of Netflix’s Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return (2017), BJ finally sees John Wick (2014), and we discuss a new entry in a franchise we’ve mentioned in passing a few times in the past, The Fate of the Furious (2017). (F8! Get it!?) Enjoy!
