BMFcast393 – Dollman vs Demonic Toys – Poopsie-Daisy

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast393 – Dollman vs Demonic Toys – Poopsie-Daisy

Dollman vs Demonic Toys (1993) is the culmination(?) of Charles Band’s shared universe in a semi-sequel to Dollman, Bad Channels, and Demonic Toys. The naughty Toys are back, and Dollman and a recently-retconned Ginger are there to fight them. This is the shortest movie we’ve ever reviewed, but does combining low-budget movie universes redeem it?

After the break, BJ gets sharky with 47 Meters Down (2017) and Deep Blue Sea (1999), Harlo revisits some ’80s classics with The Lost Boys (1987) and The Last Dragon (1985), Chuck checks in on Netflix’s Ozark (2017) and we discuss TV movies after some listener correspondence. Enjoy!

BMFcast392 – Fit To Kill – Lap Water

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast392 – Fit To Kill – Lap Water

Fit To Kill (1993) is our long-awaited return to the worlds of Andy Sidaris. Donna, Nicole, Edy, Bruce, Shane and the gang have all returned to do… Something? There’s a priceless diamond, a hot tub, a yacht, remote controlled helicopters, and Julie Strain is there, too! Also, people have lots of sex. A LOT. Does this push it to the top of the Sidaris stack?

In the second half, Harlo uses his brand new Moviepass to see Charlize Theron’s Atomic Blonde (2017) and Luc Besson’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) before we take some listener voicemails and e-mails. Enjoy!

BMFcast391 – Maniac Cop 2 – Jason X To Pay Respects

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast391 – Maniac Cop 2 – Jason X To Pay Respects

Maniac Cop 2 (1990) is a much-requested movie chock-full of BMFcast alums. With Robert Z’Dar as the titular cop back on the beat, there are plenty of beatdowns, mutilations, incinerations, and (especially) defenestrations. We all know this will get Jox. The question is how many?

After the break we do a lot of recent movie catch-up with Harlo checking out Tom Cruise’s The Mummy (2017) and continuing the Harry Potter journey with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016). Chuck revisits Prometheus (2012) before diving into the icky pool that is Alien Covenant (2017) and Maki gets into the filmmaking of Kong Skull Island (2017). Enjoy!

BMFcast390 – Bad Channels – Cookie Jar

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast390 – Bad Channels – Cookie Jar

Bad Channels (1992) is a bizarre Charles Band sci-fi spoof in which alien invaders take over an AM radio station and enslave human women with the power of rock. Or something. Can a shock jock DJ save the world while narrating himself doing it?

After the break, Maki’s magical journey through the world of Harry Potter concludes with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 (2011) and as a surprise bonus, Harlo joins him! After that we take a bunch of listener voice- and e-mails. Enjoy!

BMFcast388 – Star Crystal – All Out Of Love

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast388 – Star Crystal – All Out Of Love

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!

BMFcast385 – Demonic Toys – Old Charnetski’s Spank Rag

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BMFcast385 – Demonic Toys – Old Charnetski’s Spank Rag

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!

Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone (1983) is a b-movie space adventure staring Peter Strauss, Molly Ringwald, Ernie Hudson and Michael Ironside, but there’s a budget behind it.

After the break Harlo & Chuck superhero it up with Spider Man: Homecoming (2017), Wonder Woman (2017) and Power Rangers (2017), before Maki checks in on his magical journey with Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007) and Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince (2009).
