This week's was Erik's pick and he went back to basics. We watched the 1986 karate movie No Retreat No Surrender. Holy mackerel. Erik has been pretty adamant about JCVD as of late so he was very excited to get to this and now we're ALL excited. We've also cross-references some lists and wouldn't you have it Bad Movie Sunday (@BadMovieSunday1) also watched this one! Enjoy!
We're back at watching movies again and boy are our arms tired. It was Erik's pick this week so he decided that we watched the 3rd installment in the unofficial ninja series by Canon, Ninja 3: The Domination. It's great to be getting back in to watching movies for a while and we took it in with our friend Victor. He claims this is the first b-movies he's ever truly watched. It's always fun to show someone a b-movie when they aren't super familiar with them. Their reactions are a lot more honest.
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's been a bit but we're finally back at it with Erik's pick this week, 1983 ninja classic Revenge of the Ninja!
It's still Kid's Movie Month and we had ourselves a DOUBLE FEEEEATURE! It was ninja night here on Second Class Cinema as we watched both 3 Ninjas: High Noon at Mega Mountain and Surf Ninjas! Erik picked Surf Ninjas while we decided to pad out the ninja night with 3 Ninjas HNAMM as it's been requested by multiple people. Tyler decided to come on by (who is ultimately getting the blame for 3 Ninjas) to help us to discuss these movies. Which one of these is ultimately the best ninjas movie for kids?
It's still Kid's Movie Months here and Tom chose the 1992 movie Sidekicks starring Johnathan Brandis and Chuck Norris!!! YAAAAAY!!! Special guest Eric comes on to help us with this childhood gem. Only by listening will you know how great Joe Piscopo really was in this movie.
In this episode Tom picked the 1978 blaxploitation revenge film Death Force. AKA Vengeance is Mine. Alternate title: Fighting Mad. Ratings were all over the place and almost entirely ruined by one specific moment of the movie. If you've seen this film you might know what it is. All of that and more as we discuss successes, failures and risks of this samurai vengeance story!
Tom selects this week's topic of discussion with a movie from his childhood, 1993's Only The Strong starring none other than Mark Dacascos. We find out that capoeira is a pretty cool thing to watch, or at least we hear Tom defend this movie due to his bias growing up with it. Either way we still cover it's successes, failures and enjoy a nice ratings session. We also have first time guest Tyler on to help us break this movie down.
Successes, failures, favorite parts, ratings, ALL of these happen on Tom's selection this week. We watched the 1984 Filipino, action/martial arts movie, Death Raiders off of the Mercs DVD pack put out by VideoAsia. Special guest Aaron helps us put this movie in perspective and after some tequila, we definitely needed it.
