Ghostbusters II - 7/30/16

Sean says bustin' makes him feel good with his pick of Ghostbusters II (1989). Five years after the 1984 classic, the out-of-work Ghostbusters are forced back into action to deal with an epidemic of psychoactive slime flooding the sewers of NYC, an evil painting possessed by an ancient sorcerer, and, most horrifying of all, Venkman's old flame now has a baby. Join us as we tunnel through the nostalgia-fortified shrine of Ghostbusters II, and work in our thoughts about The Real Ghostbusters cartoon, Ghostbusters: The Video Game and the 2016 Ghostbusters remake, all on this week's exciting show!

Sorceress - 6/25/16

Colin conjures up the 1982 fantasy film Sorceress, a campy flick from the post-Conan, 80's fantasy movie craze. An evil sorcerer searches for his twin girls (Playboy's Leigh and Lynnette Harris), warrior women who were raised as boys, and who now team up with a barbarian, a satyr, and a dwarf, to stop him from conjuring an evil deity to enslave the world. Listen as we name drop as many 80's fantasy films as we can while pointing out the bad acting, bad dubbing, and altogether hysterical awfulness of a movie that has to be seen to be believed, on this week's exciting episode!

The Last Dragon - 6/18/16

A kung-fu movie by way of MTV music videos, this blacksploitation flick centers on a martial arts student, Bruce Leroy (Taimak), who seeks to become master of his discipline, which can only be achieved by defeating both the Sho'Nuff - the Shogun of Harlem - and a slimy corporate type who threatens a pretty TV VJ (Vanity). Nothing could have prepared us for the explosive, laser-enhanced final battle!
