WELCOME TA EARF!
We were joined this week by our good friend (and local comic), Rob Pierce! He graced us- not only with his presence- but with a truly enjoyable second-class gem: Welcome to Planet Earth.
Our story begins with Joseph! Having just inherited his deceased mother’s boarding house in a dangerous urban neighborhood, he’s short on cash and desperate to find some tenants as soon as possible. Lucky for him, that very evening Charlie, Rhonda and their daughter Daphne show up on his doorstep- looking like they just stepped out of a Normal Rockwell painting, and needing a place to rent. At first it seems too good to be true, rich white folks with money to burn, who are all too pleased that Joseph wants to bang their daughter. But are they what they seem? Or are they aliens vacationing on Earth, here to take in all the sights and vigilante justice the inner-city has to offer? Only time will tell!
Welcome to Planet Earth stars George Wendt and Shanna Reed, and is truly a bizarre and unique film. We discuss this movie’s oddly adept social commentary and clever dialogue, the sexiness of violent women, and why Joseph’s mom loves singing in the graveyard. Listen up!

It was Brittany's pick and she did us all a favor and broke our spell of watching movies that are of sub-par quality (even though her last pick was the Chuck Norris movies Forest Warrior)! Yay? Either way, she picked the 2014 thriller/action movie The Guest! We had our OWN very special guest on the show, Fallon! She was actually the one who had recommended this movie to us to watch so Brittany only felt it appropriate to have her watch it with us. Fortunately for us our guest was not as intense as THE Guest. Listen up!

On this week's episode, our pal Gray came on and watched the early 90's dark comedy Meet the Applegates! Last time Gray was on we had a discussion about a movie that traumatized us as children. Not even so much the whole movie itself, but one particular scene from said movie. Since we shared the same experience as children, we decided to explore this movie together. What scene is it do you think we're talking about? We also discuss other movie scenes that traumatized us as young movie lovers. Listen up!

On this weeks episode, we watch the 1986 BMX classic, Rad! Our good friend Christopher was very excited to bring on and show us this wonderful movie that he has such a rich history with. It's movies and moments like these that make all of the terrible, waste-of-time, garbage movies all worth the anguish.

We're officially off that hellish ride through space, and onto bigger and better things. It was Brittany's turn to pick the flick this week, and feeling as though we deserved to treat ourselves, she selected 2014’s Housebound- a thriller/comedy straight out of New Zealand. Having heard nothing but great things about this movie, it felt a little indulgent… But hey, treat yo’self, amiright?
Housebound follows Kylie, a young delinquent who is sentenced to house arrest under her mother’s care after being arrested for breaking into an ATM. While stuck with her mother and stepfather, Kylie learns some disturbing things about their family home. Like how a teenage girl was murdered there decades ago… Back when their house was used as a mental institution. NBD. As Kylie becomes obsessed with solving the murder, things around the house just get weirder and weirder. Can she solve it before her and her mother become the killer’s next victims?
We've had a pretty good track record with movies made in New Zealand, so we discuss how this measures up to some of our favorites!

In Space Month is FINALLY here on Second Class Cinema! But you all should have heard this in our April 1st episode. Sorry about that.
We kick it off with Brittany's pick, Leprechaun 4: In Space! The rules of In Space Month are easy, we have to pick a movie that takes it franchise in to outer space. We were surprised to find out how little this actually happened but it happened enough for us to notice, so that's a problem.
Special Guest Taryn came on to discuss this movie with us. Listen up!

It was Erik's pick this week and he picked the 1994 horrorish, comedyish movie Brainscan! We had Aaron on for this one and we DIDN'T get really drunk. Depending on how you look at it, could go either way.

It was Tom's pick this week and he used a bit of outside influence for his selection. The movie is 1991's martial art, action, comedy Breathing Fire. Tom was merely a bystander on twitter when the The Bristol Bad Film Club (@TheOtherBBFC) tagged him in an image that Crap Film Club (@CrapFilmClub) posted. About 5 minutes later Tom was sitting anxiously at his doorstep waiting for his newest eBay purchase to arrive. After it's arrival, and with little to no expectation of the movie, it was put it on the television and allowed it into the hearts of Second Class Cinema. Tyler came on to watch this movie with us and as he states in this episode, this movie changed his life.

It was Brittany's pick this week and she is absolutely tired of watching everyone else's GARBAGE picks so she picked something interesting. We watched the 2015 comedy horror movie The Final Girls! Big surprise Brittany picks a horror/comedy movie but hey who's counting? We have special guest Taryn come on to help us talk about this a-movie disguised as a b-movie.

Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama. 1989. That's what we watched this week. This horror/fantasy/comedy was picked by Brittany, if you couldn't already tell. Brittany's sister Taryn (Tee) comes on to join us for this one. We also tried to watch Dollman vs Demonic Toys and we discuss that on this episode as well. How does this compare to the other horror/comedy movies that we've watched? Listen up as we try and piece the puzzle together that is this movie.
