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.
Brittany’s selection this week was the fresh 2015 release, WolfCop! Sounds easy right? A wolf that’s a cop. This movie’s name alone set up expectations it just couldn’t quite live up to. See if our ratings and reactions were anything like yours as we break down the successes, failures and risks of this werewolf-comedy, cop romp.
As a group we decided enough was enough and we were going to see something new to review for once, so we ventured out to see teen cyber-thriller Unfriended. After seeing the trailer before It Follows, it seemed like it was going to be at least a semi-good time. Was it? How do you think it measured up during our Fucking Ratings?
In correlation with the new Mortal Kombat coming out, Erik selected the 1995 virtual reality action movie Expect No Mercy with Tae Bo’s own Billy Blanks. Favorite parts aplenty and a truly surprising rating.
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.
