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!

The Quest (1996) is our farewell tribute to Sir Roger Moore. He’s a buccaneer who captures Jean Claude Van-Damme at sea and eventually enters him into a deadly fighting tournament in order to win a giant golden dragon. Oh and JCVD directed the film as well.

The second half is filled to the brim with movies we watched over the 4th of July break. Harlo’s got Kong: Skull Island and Life, Chuck hit the Redbox jackpot with The Founder, CHIPs, Passengers, The Lego Batman Movie, Fist Fight, and Patriots Day and then Harlo and BJ tag team the Netflix series GLOW. Enjoy!
