DON'T TELL GRANDMA SHE'S A REINDEER! Or something like that. It's Christmas time in the city and we watched Tom's pick this week, the 2000 animated special Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer. History repeated itself with how we got to this movie and we're pretty glad it did I think.
Tom picked the flick this week, and he thought the premise of a women’s baseball team lost in the woods with deranged killers sounded like a real home run (I’m sorry)… Our friend Aaron stopped by the studio to help us dissect this bloody baseball debacle.
When a group of drunken rednecks lose a baseball game to a traveling team of buxom babes, they are incensed, but get over it rather quickly. That is all short-lived however, when one of their own, Mino, tries to stiff the baseball coach out of $1000 he owes him over a bet on the game. Things escalate quickly, resulting in the accidental death of Mino’s son, Roy. Mino resorts to full-on Vietnam flashback mode, calling for the girls deaths, and offering $1000 per head. The race is on, can Babe and the Ball Girls escape this hillbilly nightmare unscathed, or are they all doomed to die in the woods?
In this episode we discuss our satisfaction with the death scenes, ponder the inexplicable decision made by Mino to pay $9,000 for 9 dead women instead of the paltry $1K he originally owed, and we cover just a ton of straight up grab-ass.
Unfortunately, this was not quite the splatter-fest we were hoping to grace you all with for October. But how did it measure up in every other regard?
It was Tom's pick this week and guess what happened? He picked a movie he got at a flea market! That movie happened to be the 1989 action movie One Man Force. Special guest Jimmy comes on to discuss this movie and also helps us rank restaurant chains. Do not be fooled by the beginning of the episode, we did not watch Holy Mountain. Thank god we didn't.
It was Tom's pick this week and he is back to his old ways. Plucked directly from the vast DVD library of garbage popped out our pick, the 1999 made for TV action movie Shadow Warriors 2 starring Hulk Hogan and Carl Weathers. This was actually quite the confusing journey, since the DVD in question was actually promoted as Shadow Warriors, so the entire time we were watching the wrong movie. Our confusion definitely comes pouring out once we actually realized what happened to us.
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!
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.
This episode was a close call folks. It was Tom's pick this week and he almost had to do this whole episode by himself. We watched the crimer/thriller movie "Inhumanity" from 2001 that Tom procured at the Bargain City Galleria! What's unfortunate about this situation is, it's typically best if the listener has watched the movie before listening OR that there's some interest in the movie at all before listening to the episode, and sadly neither are the case for this particular endeavor. I honestly don't know how you'd get a copy because it sure isn't worth the investment, nor would I assume anyone outside of the filmmakers family has seen this movie. But gosh darnit if it isn't our job to watch and immediately discuss. So we did.
We are RAPIDLY approaching Christmas here on Second Class Cinema so Tom thought it was only appropriate to bring a little Christmas spirit with him on his selection this week. We watched the 1996 Hulk Hogan holiday ho-down Santa With Muscles. We had special guest Tyler on to help us discuss this one. This is the SECOND Hulk Hogan movie he's been on for so we're becoming experts on the subject. Do we shatter our rating system trying to figure this one out!? Listen up!
