Episode 66: Deadliest Prey (2013)


At SCC this week, we finally got to watch a film we have been eager to see for a while… It was Erik’s pick, and he chose 2013’s Deadliest Prey- the follow-up to 1987’s cult-classic action flick, Deadly Prey.

In the original film, we follow Mike Danton- Vietnam vet, and all-around American badass- as he’s kidnapped and forced to be the “prey” for a group of ruthless mercenaries in training, led by madman Colonel Hogan. To make a totally awesome long story short: they kill Danton’s wife, he destroys them all, Hogan goes to prison, the end.
Or is it?

This movie picks up 25 years later, as Hogan is about to be released from prison. Suffice to say, he has not been reformed. In fact, he’s spent the last 25 years plotting the ultimate revenge on Danton- kidnapping him, and once again plunging him into a deadly hunting game… Because apparently Hogan didn’t learn his lesson the first time? Will Mike outsmart his hunters once again, and be able to save his family this time? Will he wear cutoff denim shorts to show off the fact that he totally never skips leg day? WILL THE MADNESS NEVER END?!
Join us on this episode as we discuss modernizing cult-classics, diaper-wearing bimbos, and whether or not we will see a third Deadly Prey film.

Episode 61: Never Say Never Again (1983)


Trailer:

Merry Christmas, Citizens!

We’re not officially there yet, but it’s so close we can taste it. And it tastes like a martini- shaken, not stirred.
Once again joined by our good pal, Tyler, we prepared to watch 1983’s bastard Bond film, Never Say Never Again. Tyler and Erik have seen ALL Bond films, while Tom and Brittany have seen NONE… It made for a interesting discussion.

We won’t bore you with plot points from this flick, as I’m sure you can guess that Bond is tasked with saving the civilized world from the clutches of a mad man. With, of course, plenty of booze and babes to distract him in the process. We dissect this film and get down to the nitty-gritty, as we discuss the sexiest Bond, the acidity level of James Bond’s urine, accidental animal death, and of course… what everyone wants to know, the number of sexual conquests Sean Connery has had in his life.

Listen up!

Episode 57: Revenge of the Ninja (1983)


Check out the whole movie here for free! Thanks Paramount!

It was Erik’s turn to pick the flick this week- naturally we ended up watching a ninja movie… We were in for a surprise, however, because 1983’s Revenge of the Ninja ended up being the best ninja flick we’ve seen to date.
After losing multiple family members to ninja violence (LOL), Cho swears off the ninja way, and he, his mother and his infant son, Kane, move from Japan to their new home in America. All is quiet for 6 years as Cho opens a successful art gallery and raises his son away from the violence of their homeland. That is until Cho discovers his business partner has been using their gallery as a front to sell heroin to the local mafia, who are not very happy with him… The thugs break into the gallery to steal the heroin, and kill Cho’s mother in the process. Cho must once again embrace the way of the ninja, and sets off on a vengeful path to save his son.
This movie is equal parts unintentional hilarity, and straight-up badassery. Listen up as we discuss the inventive kills, shoddy acting, and general awesomeness of this movie. We also briefly cover a First-Class Failure starring Billy Ray Cyrus, that we could barely tolerate 20 minutes of. Good times. Have you seen it? Is it worth finishing? Let us know!

Episode 55: Night Trap (1992) (Yes the Sega CD game)


The cut of Night Trap we watched:

October is just about over, Halloween is approaching and soon we will have nothing to do but transition into Christmas movies. We say goodbye to Horror Movie Month in a strange fashion with Erik’s pick this week. Sega CD seems to come up a lot on this show as a reference of quality so Erik decided to choose the 1992 Sega CD release Night Trap. We know this is not a MOVIE but we viewed it as if it were one anyway. There are a lot of different versions of this on YouTube and you can see the one we watched above. Ryan of Fat Foot Films came on to talk about this his experiences actually playing AND beating this game. Overall it was kind of weird but we somehow managed to cram this in to our format. Happy Halloween!
