This week we had the pleasure of viewing one of Tom’s picks here at SCC, and that pick was the 1990 Andy Sedaris action flick, Guns. We’ve watched a few Sedaris movies before this, and though they all contain the 3 B’s (boobs, babes and beaches, duh.), this was the best one we’ve seen thus far.
When a ruthless gun-runner, Juan Degas, puts a hit out on a member of a secret government agency, all hell breaks loose. Degas stages a murder in Las Vegas to keep the agents busy while he traffics shipments of guns through Hawaii. Will the Agency (yup, that’s what it’s called) be able to save all their hostages and stop them before the deal is done?
This movie is a real doozy. It took us a bit to get a grip on what exactly was happening, and who was doing what in this… but once you get there, it’s a fun time. We discuss the mechanics of sex on motorcycles, soft corn flicks, and why teased 80’s hair is so orgasmic. Listen up, gentlefolk!
We are RAPIDLY approaching Christmas here on Second Class Cinema so Tom thought it was only appropriate to bring a little Christmas spirit with him on his selection this week. We watched the 1996 Hulk Hogan holiday ho-down Santa With Muscles. We had special guest Tyler on to help us discuss this one. This is the SECOND Hulk Hogan movie he’s been on for so we’re becoming experts on the subject. Do we shatter our rating system trying to figure this one out!?
Special guest: Tyler
What’s a movie without an ice cream truck full of goons?
It’s our one year anniversary! Woo. To make this episode extra special to us, we decided to watch the 1997 movie The Necro Files. Why is that special you ask? Our movie tonight was directed by Matt Jaissle, also the director of the first movie we covered Back From Hell (if you decide to listen be warned, it’s rough)! We were lucky enough to interview Matt Jaissle about his work and you can find that embeded below as well. Tom purchased this movie and waited for the right time to watch it and I think we found it.
Keeping on with Horror Movie Month, we watched something a little more traditional in style, kind of. Tom picked the 1987 sci-fi/horror movie The Kindred! This was an interesting watch for us because we really had no clue what we were getting in to. Brandon came on to help us discuss this movie, and this is one of his personal favorites. He even brought an old Fangoria magazine that had an article about this movie. Where do you think this movie will measure on the Fuck scale?
OCTOBER IS HERE!!! That means horror movies and so this is Horror Movie Month… OBVIOUSLY! Tom picked the 2012 Irish slasher/clown movie Stitches to kick it off. We all pretty much went in to one side on this rating. What side do you think our ratings fell on? Listen up as Tyler comes on and helps us discuss this insane clown picture.
Watch this weird scene from this movie because that’s what I wanted to post from YouTube here!
God Bless Tiny Tim! Seriously, because if it weren’t for him this movie would have been more unbearable than it already was. That movie was the 1987 horror movie “Blood Harvest”. This was Tom’s pick because it missed getting watched “too many times”. Yikes. Mr. Tim is a creepy clown in a small town where people are being hung upside down and… killed! Sounds promising right? Find out how we all rate this movie on this week’s discussion!
On this week’s episode we watch Tom’s pick, the 1987 action movie Hollywood Cop. This movie was directed by Amir Shervan, the same person that made Samurai Cop! You can expect a similar level of grime and crime in this awkwardly raunchy spectacle. This movie came out 4 years prior to Samurai Cop, so we draw the parallels between the two and see how Amir Shervan differed from one movie to the other… If at all. IT’S NOT AWESOME!
It was Tom’s pick this week and he chose the 2001 movie The Rats. This movie had rats, rats, a guy that looked like a rat, more rats, and climaxes with a geyser of rats in a rec-center pool. THAT’S IT AND GOODNIGHT!
