Blood Debts (1985) concludes Bloodtober as Richard Harrison (the man with the Garfield Phone!) returns to take revenge on criminals of the world in this Death Wish knockoff. But when he gets blackmailed into becoming a vigilante hitman, that’s when things really go crazy. Trust us, watch this one.
After the break Harlo talks about Kevin Hart and The Rock’s Central Intelligence (2016) before we take some e-mails and go on tangents about high school trigonometry (or something.) Enjoy!
Deadliest Prey (2013) is the return of Mike Danton as he’s once again pulled into the dangerous game of man huntin’ by the evil Hogan in the sequel to BMFcast favorite David A. Prior’s classic Deadly Prey! Pretty much anyone that survived the first movie reprises their role in what amounts to a remake. Plus there are hackers and webcams. Does it work?
After the break we talk X-Men: Apocalypse, Step-Brothers, Electric Boogaloo: The Wild Untold Story of Cannon Films, and take some listener e-mails that devolve into JapaniMAY madness. Enjoy!
Ninja Busters (1984) is a recently unearthed gem never released to theaters until last August. We’re not gonna mince words, this is a super-fun martial arts comedy you should see as soon as possible. Movies like this are why we do the podcast.
After the break Harlo weighs in on Tarantino’s Hateful Eight, Maki catches up before the X-Files returns with The X-Files: I Want To Believe (2008) and we discuss Netflix sensation Making A Murderer. Enjoy!
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.
Invasion Force (1990) is our next foray into the world of David A. Prior. and like the prior Prior movies, it’s a wonder of low budgetness. A film crew making an action movie must thwart would-be terrorists from taking over a town and holding the inhabitants hostage.
Wanted Dead or Alive (1986) is a return for Rutger Hauer. We’ve had some shaky offerings with him before but we may be alright here as he’s chasing after Gene Simmons and aided by Robert Guillaume.
McBain (1991) is our movie of the week. This was brought to our attention from the epic voicemail from Episode 200 and stars Christopher Walken as a facilitator of a revolution. He doesn’t do much personally but the body count is way up there.
Blind Fury (1989) is reviewed this episode. Rutger Hauer headlines this action comedy movie and it seems as unsure of its direction as someone who has bad direction. What? You didn’t think we’d pick on the handicapped did you? There’s enough of that in this movie for everyone.
Then second half we take listener voicemail that delves in to a regurgitation of Jackass 3(d) and talk of various cunning stunts. Enjoy.
Deadly Prey (1987) may be a low budget First Blood ripoff, but it’s got plenty going for it that John Rambo didn’t have till two sequels later – a HUGE body count. Oh and more mullets and tinier jean shorts.
Then in the second half we take some listener voicemails which answer many questions regarding myths, jobs and blood filled condoms. We also talk Winter’s Bone, The Mechanic and Exit Through the Gift Shop.
