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.
It's just the THREE of us here on this week's episode and we watched Erik's pick, the 1974 blaxploitation film Three the Hard Way. We don't have much experience with these types of movies so we thought it would be a good idea to try this one out. I don't know about you guys but based on the trailer this movie couldn't fail anyone. How did it rank on the Fuck Scale?!
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.
We’re on a road… A road… to REVENGE!
Our flick this week was a recommendation from our friends over at Bad Movie Sunday (which Bristol Bad Film Club was kind enough to give us access to), and we cannot thank them enough for it. We were joined by our friend (and first-time guest), Gray, as we viewed and discussed the masterpiece that is Road to Revenge (1993) aka GETEVEN aka Karate Cowboy aka Satanic Panic. Just kidding about those last two… Or are we?
Road to Revenge follows disgraced former police officer (and current limo driver), Rick Bode, as he attempts to take down a Satanic cult- which happens to be headed by his former partner, Normad. Aided by his girlfriend, Cindy (a former cult member), his perpetually drunk best friend, Huck, and a Native American mannequin, Rick sets off to get even.
Armed with nothing more than some leather pants and a song, John De Hart mystifyingly manages to make this vanity project completely entertaining (and bizarrely endearing).
Listen up as we discuss the Shimmy Slide, black-belt poodles, and uncomfortable sex scenes involving ice cubes!
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!
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!
