Episode 88 - Killing American Style (1990)

August 9, 2016
Aaaand we’re back. Flippin’ finally!

As some of you know, it’s been a rough month here at SCC… but after all the roadtrips, mountain-climbing, and hospital stays (not in that order), we are back and ready for action. We missed bad movies, and we missed every gosh damn one of you!
Tom picked the movie this week, and we watched the 1990 action flick, Killing American Style- directed by the one and only Amir Shervan. Tyler stopped by to watch this one with us- making it the third Shervan film we’ve covered on the show, and the second that Tyler has joined us for.

Killing American Style stars Robert Z’Dar as hardened criminal, Tony Stone, who -along with his partner, John Lynch- are on their way to prison for a failed heist. When Stone’s brother is shot in the process of helping them escape, they force their way into a nearby home and wait for help. The only problem is that the house belongs to all-American bad-ass/80s fashion victim, John Morgan. Morgan comes out strong but essentially becomes their errand boy for the entire movie, until finally he gets fed up and decides to unleash some good ol’ fashioned American whoop-ass on everyone! Hurray!

We discuss the obvious parallels between this and Shervan’s other films, including his bizarre perspective on American culture. We also discuss watermelon etiquette, bizarre set “design”, and lack of a solid goon game in this flick. We’re back!

Episode 87 - The Neil Breen Spectacular 2! - PASS THRU (2015)

July 5, 2016

I Dream of Breenie IS BACK! That's right! Neil Breen has a new movie out and our city (the lovely city of Boston) hosted this movie for all of his fans. Having recovered from watching all 3 of Neil's movies in one sitting and discussing (Listen to the Neil Breen Spectacular here!), we decided to pack our bags and take the field trip to the sold out Somerville Theatre with our good friend Aaron of course. How has Neil progressed as a filmmaker? Is this his best movie to date? All of that and more on this week's Second Class Cinema.

Episode 85 - Rad (1986)

June 21, 2016

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.

Episode 48 - The Neil Breen Spectacular!

September 22, 2015

On this week's episode, we did something we've never done before.... We covered THREE movies.  That's right.  That means we sat through 3 movies in a row and then recorded this VERY long episode after.  It was grueling. Aaron's back in town to discuss all three of Neil Breen's movies; Double Down (2005), I Am Here.... Now (2009) and Fateful Findings (2013).  Listen up to find out  how they all measured up during our ratings!  This episode is a healthy 1 hour 45 minutes, so god bless you all.

Episode 16 - Freeway (1996)

February 17, 2015

Brittany chose the movie this week and she picked 1996's Freeway for her Cult Month selection.  This is probably the closest we've come so far to watching something with actual substance.  First time guest Jimmy is on to help us recap this mid-90's gem.
