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?
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.
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!
Detention (2011) is a bit of a surprise for us. We went in only because it’s from the same director of Torque and what we ended up getting may shock you (because it did us).
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie (1995) is our very unofficial tribute to the idea of KaiJune that ends in a CGI nightmare of sadness. But the bad guy is the best thing about this one.
Super Buddies (2013) is the wrap up movie to Dogust and our first Disney movie ever. Since the inception of the Air Bud franchise, it’s all led to this. Five puppies gain super powers (besides being able to talk) and fight an evil alien. Its G-rating could have been grating but it’s better than you’d think.
Second half we talk The World’s End, a pair of Korean movies (The Man From Nowhere and I’m a Cyborg, But That’s Okay) and get Dieselized with Pitch Black. Plus emails and even a brand new contest for you to enter, dear listener. Enjoy!
