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.
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!
It was Brittany’s turn to pick the flick this week, and I’m sure you will all be very shocked to hear that she picked yet another horror comedy. Taryn joined us once again, and we watched 1988’s Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama, and it sure was a movie.
After getting caught sneaking into a sorority house to watch the initiation ceremony, a group of geeks are forced to escort the sorority pledges on the last mission of their initiation- sneak into the local mall/bowling alley, steal a bowling trophy, and bring it back to their senior sorority sisters. Along the way they encounter a punk chick named Spider (who is also robbing the Bowl-o-Rama), a ghoulish little clay-mation imp, and lot of other things that really don’t matter or make sense in the least.
Listen up as we discuss uncomfortably lengthy and awkward sex scenes, jokes with no punchlines, and Linnea Quigley as the one enjoyable aspect of this film. Enjoy!
It was a great year here at Second Class Cinema. We’ve watched a lot of movies- some great, some not so much- had a ton of great guests on, and more importantly- we have had a blast doing it. Our podbean reached 10,000 plays this week, and it means a lot to us that anyone at all enjoys listening to us be morons. So, thanks for that!
For our first episode of the new year, we were joined by our friend Aaron in viewing the newest Drafthouse flick, Dangerous Men.
After being kidnapped by her fiance’s murderer- and her would-be rapist- Mina exacts revenge and goes on a killing spree to rid LA of all of it’s scummy and dangerous men. Unfortunately for her, a detective- who also happens to be her fiance’s brother- is hot on her heels as he attempts to solve the string of murders and destroy the biker gang responsible for his brothers death.
The synopsis above is much, much more succinct than the actual film itself.
In this episode we discuss the motivations of the characters, why everyone loves rape so much, and buttcrack weaponry. If by the end of this episode you still have no idea what this movie is about, then you will have understood perfectly.
