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!

Star Slammer (1986) is an early Fred Olen Ray effort, where a woman is sent to space prison for a crime she didn’t commit. Can she survive life in the space can with fellow inmates space fighting her, a space warden threatening her, and the man who imprisoned her out for space revenge?

After the break we discuss Netflix’s GLOW (2017) a little more before diving into listener correspondence. 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. When Wolff (Strauss) is hired to track down earth women stranded on a distant planet run by Overdog (Ironside), he’ll need the help of Niki (Ringwald) and Washington (Hudson) to get into Overdog’s base and take him down.

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). Finally, BJ wants you to check out Titansgrave on YouTube. Enjoy!

Space Buddies (2009) is what we watch when Harlo skips an episode. Our intrepid crew of golden retrievers somehow ends up in space and makes friends with Spudnick, a russian dogsmonaut and Gravity, a ferret who’s an expert in atmospheric re-entry trajectories. Or something.

After the break Maki rewatches John Wick (2014) and we take a metric ton of listener e-mails! Sequels to Titanic (1997) are hatched, Saved! (2004) gets a shout out and plenty more. Enjoy!

Ghosts of Mars (2001) has been requested so often that episode 350 felt like the proper time to review it. Ice Cube, Natasha Henstridge, Pam Grier and Jason Statham must battle Mars-infected zombies, trust issues, and really, really bad editing. Can we (and John Carpenter) survive this one?

After the break we talk a little more about Sausage Party (2016) and take some listener correspondence. Enjoy!

Jason X (2001) completes Harlo’s Crystal Lake journey and we all join him for the ride. Its Jason. In space. Murdering people. It’s also self-aware, which works in this case! In space, apparently, everybody is screwed.

In the second half Harlo really, really completes his Friday the 13th journey by watching Freddy vs Jason and the 2009 Friday the 13th remake before opting out of the 7-hour documentary. We also address some listener e-mails. Enjoy!

Doom (2005) has been on The List™ since the start of the podcast, and 324 episodes in we finally review this videogame adaptation starring The Rock, Karl Urban and Rosamund Pike. Can The Rock and Bones save this poorly lit movie?

After the break Harlo talks Captain America: Civil War and Jodorowsky’s Dune, JapaniMAY continues as BJ chimes in on Redline, Maki and Harlo love Miyazaki’s My Neighbor Totoro & Kiki’s Delivery Service, and Chuck even joins the animated fun with Duck Tales: The Movie(! ?) It’s a jam-packed half. Enjoy!

The Ice Pirates (1984) marks a space classic unseen since the childhoods of some podcast members, but does it hold up as adults? Can a bevy of BMFcast alums overcome the randomness and weird tone?

After the break Maki goes first person with Hardcore Henry, Harlo enjoys Sisters way more than he expected, and we give some Patreon shoutouts. Enjoy!

Moon 44 (1990) is our movie for the week and it’s the last movie Roland Emmerich made before breaking into Hollywood proper. There’s space drones, space prisoners, space geeks, space helicopters and space Macolm McDowell.

Second half we discuss Police Story 1/2, Plastic Galaxy and Fanboys. Plus dream of a world where we get the original Star Wars trilogy unaltered but remastered. Enjoy!

Alienator (1990) begins Fred Olen May! An evil prisoner guy lands on earth and an Alien Terminator lady-thing tracks him down. An Alienator, if you will. Oh yeah, and Jan Michael Vincent might be drunk.

Second half Harlo talks about Jupiter Ascending and The Internship, Maki revisits Marvel Phase Two, Chuck tries to figure out if we’ve ever done an episode on Johnny Dangerously (spoiler: no) and we take some fun voicemails and e-mails. Enjoy!
