Riverbend (1990) marks Steve James and director Sam Firstenberg’s continued legacy on the BMFcast. James has come to the small Georgia town of Riverbend to take on the most evil, racist character we have ever encountered on the show. Does his strange, uncomfortable plan work?

Second half we talk about Netflix’s A Very Murray Christmas, Chuck demands we watch season 2 of The Leftovers and our Correspondence Contest continues as we take a batch of listener mails. Enjoy!

Street Hunter (1990) marks Steve James’ 8th BMFcast movie, and his first as the main star (though the poster would make you think otherwise.) He’s a bounty hunter named Logan Blade, hunting down Reb Brown and John Leguizamo.

Second half BJ checks out Avengers: Age of Ultron, Harlo & Chuck discuss Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, and we catch up on a metric ton of listener correspondence. Enjoy!

Second half we talk The Interview, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1, The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies and more. Plus catch up on listener correspondence. Enjoy!

Invasion L.A.

Avenging Force (1986) is how we avenge force movies after last week. Michael Dudikoff takes over Chuck Norris’ character role in this sort of sequel to Invasion U.S.A. Basically it’s more like American Ninja 1.5.

 

Second half we talk a bunch of movies including Snowpiercer, Casino Jack, Ong Bak, Iron Monkey, Stealth and the Rambo series. Enjoy!

American Ninja (1985) is how we celebrate Thankgiving. Why? Because America. And Ninja. Also this marks the first time we’ve watched a Michael Dudikoff movie somehow.

Second half we catch up on listener correspondence and wrap it up so we can go eat some turkey. Enjoy!
