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.
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.
So Erik selected the 1991 football-action, extraction movie, The Last Match. The quarterback of a football team’s daughter gets imprisoned somewhere in South America so he collects all of his macho football player friends to go and save her. It’s not as cool as it sounds, trust us.
Fresh out of Cult Month, Erik picks the 1991 Action-Comedy Dollman. Brought to us by Full Moon Entertainment; this movie was not the movie we thought it was going to be when we started but we’re sure glad we were wrong. Second time guest Brian assists us in reviewing this one.
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.
Erik selected our second film for Cult Month, and we watched the 1991 buddy-cop, shlock-fest Samurai Cop. This movie became a fast favorite for us at Second Class Cinema, so it was an obvious choice to present it for Cult Month!
Hot-shot cop, Joe Marshall (“Samurai Cop”), and his partner Frank, take to the streets to put a stop to the notorious Katana gang. Of course, they make time along the way to bang some babes, have gunfights and eat birthday cake in a speedo. Everything about this movie is hilarious, from the bad dialogue and continuity (that WIG!), to mullets and matching underwear. This is a rare b-movie gem. Oh! It also stars Robert Z’Dar’s face!
Listen up, as we try to dissect what makes this movie so amazingly enjoyable.
