Star Crystal (1986) is the tale of a spaceship crew that brings an alien life form on board that begins killing them one by one. Wait, this sounds vaguely familiar. What’s NOT familiar is the bizarre last 10 minutes of this movie. Will an insane swerve yield Jox?

After the break Maki hits the theater for The Dark Tower (2017), Chuck hits the home theater for the recent Kong Skull Island (2017), BJ marathons a little-known HBO show called Game of Thrones, and Harlo sends us out with Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later. Enjoy!

Demonic Toys (1992) comes to us from Charles Band, Peter Manoogian (director of Arena and Eliminators), and David S. Goyer(!) When a demon brings toys to life to wreak havoc in an old warehouse only a pregnant cop, a chicken delivery boy and a runaway girl can stop them.

After the break Harlo checks out CHiPs (2017) and Chuck gets all music documentary-ish with The Defiant Ones (2017) and All Things Must Pass: The Rise and Fall of Tower Records (2015). This leads to talk of minimum wage jobs and other tomfoolery before we answer a bunch of your e-mails and voicemails. Enjoy!

The Quest (1996) is our farewell tribute to Sir Roger Moore. He’s a buccaneer who captures Jean Claude Van-Damme at sea and eventually enters him into a deadly fighting tournament in order to win a giant golden dragon. Oh and JCVD directed the film as well.

The second half is filled to the brim with movies we watched over the 4th of July break. Harlo’s got Kong: Skull Island and Life, Chuck hit the Redbox jackpot with The Founder, CHIPs, Passengers, The Lego Batman Movie, Fist Fight, and Patriots Day and then Harlo and BJ tag team the Netflix series GLOW. Enjoy!

Trespass (1992) welcomes back decorated alums Walter Hill, Ice-T, Ice Cube, Bill Paxton and more in the story of two firefighters searching an abandoned building for gold when they accidentally stumble into a drug deal gone wrong. Things only get worse from there.

After the break BJ and Harlo love Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver (2017), Maki almost loves Wonder Woman (2017), Chuck kinda loves Anchorman 2’s R-Rated cut (2013), and the Maki’s magical journey continues with Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005). Enjoy!

College Kickboxers (1991) has our intrepid hero, college freshman James, testing his martial arts skills against his roommate Mark, his Sifu Wing, and a gang of supremely racist dudes named the White Tigers. Will our good guys win and save the dojo (aka rec center?) What do you think?

After the break Maki continues his magical journey with Alfonso Cuaron’s Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004) and a listener e-mail about Beauty and the Beast (2017) sparks discussion of remakes and risk aversion in modern Hollywood. Enjoy!

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!
