Episode 27: Only The Strong (1993)

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.

Episode 17: Gymkata (1985)

GYMKATA!

We learned how misleading this title is when we watched it as our latest pick for Cult Month. Joined once again by our dear friend, Aaron, we viewed and discussed this 1985 gynastics-riddled “martial arts” film.

Jonathan Cabot is an accomplished gymnast who is rigorously trained in martial arts and is forced to compete in the grueling survival competition, known as “The Game” (not the one starring Michael Douglas). The Game takes place in the eastern European country of Parmistan. The prize for winning? The ability to ask the King for anything, and have it be granted. There’s a whole other subplot about a dad, a space station, and some dude with a rat-tail… But we won’t spoil it all.

Listen up!
