Episode 101 - Welcome to Planet Earth (1996)

March 10, 2017

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!

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 86 - Meet the Applegates (1990)

June 27, 2016
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!

Episode 79 - Jason X (2001)

April 28, 2016

This month, we've been to space with the Leprechaun, James Bond and Pinhead… So of course we could not say farewell to “In Space” Month without covering 2001’s, Jason X.

A cryogenically frozen Jason Voorhees is discovered in the year 2455 and taken aboard a spacecraft where he is accidentally unfrozen, thereafter wreaking bloody havoc on the passengers until only a few remain. After Hell and Manhattan, the only logical place for him to go was space. This movie introduces us to Über Jason. Take it as you will. But there's boobs, there's weird dominatrix robots, there's Jason… Careening through space.

This movie split the room a bit. How does this movie measure up to the other franchises that brought their films to outer space? How do we feel about this whole space-month thing? How fast can liquid nitrogen turn your face into a snowcone? Listen up!

Episode 78 - Hellraiser IV: Bloodline (1996)

April 23, 2016
Welcome to a special Saturday edition of Second Class Cinema!

This whole "In Space Month" this is a little harder than initially anticipated. That being said this week we watched Hellraiser IV: Bloodline. Even with Adam Scott having a role in this movie and the prospect of Pinhead being shot with orange lasers couldn't truly salvage the movie. Our friend and b-movie professional Fallon was kind enough to come on and watch this one with us and then we blamed her for it because we're all good buddies here. This one prompted an interesting but unanimous rating.

Episode 77 - Moonraker (1979)

April 14, 2016
We're settling into Space Month nicely here at Second Class Cinema. For the entire month of April we’ll be exploring different film series’ that (bafflingly) decided to take their franchise into outer space. We kicked it off last week with Leprechaun 4: In Space- which, despite it’s fantastically boring title, we somehow expected to be better. A few months ago, when we watched our first James Bond movie (Never Say Never Again) our good friend, Tyler, joined us. So it was only fitting that he join us again for this week’s viewing of the 1979 Bond flick, Moonraker.

Episode 76 - Leprechaun 4: In space (1997)

April 7, 2016
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!

Episode 74 - Brainscan (1994)

March 22, 2016
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.

Episode 72 - Megaforce (1982)

March 9, 2016

On this week's episode we take a submission pick from the lovely folks at Bad Movie Sunday! They were kind enough to give us a list of the movies they would consider to be their "Fuck Yeah!"'s for us to watch and today is where we start. Our first BMS pick was a simple one. This was amongst the top of their list and was a movie that we had just recently procured, and that movie is 1982's action, sci-fi fun parade Megaforce! 


Check out Bad Movie Sunday!

Episode 71 - The Visitor (1979)

March 2, 2016

It was Brittany's pick this week so we watched the movie a Drafthouse Films release, The Visitor from 1979! This sci-fi, Cronenbergesque movie left us wondering a lot of things. About whether or not it was us or the movie that was incomprehensible. That ever happen to anyone? Well it happened to us tonight!
