Episode 33: The Avenging Fist (2001)

The Avenging Fist was supposed to be the Tekken movie, but ended up as Double Dragon meets Torque meets The Fifth Element meets Dragonball Z meets Sammo Hung in a metal fedora meets circa-2001 CGI at its finest.  Martial arts fans hate it because it includes about 90 seconds of actual martial arts. Nonsense fans love it!

Episode 31: Exterminators Of The Year 3000 (1983)

Our second selection from listener Cliff’s big box o’ VHS is our second Italian post-apocalyptic whatnot. Exterminators has less sci-fi and than Warrior Of The Lost World, but… it has less of everything really, except drunken boy robots and awkward dialogue. And only one exterminator. Can Trash, Alien and Papillon trust each other and find water? And did they really forget about Fred?

Episode 29: One Man Force (1989)

Lindsay had to work late because of weather (thanks Snowbama), so the three tough guys watched the world’s largest loose-cannon cop wreak havoc on every criminal and Pepsi truck in LA. His partner got killed, and he’s out to do random stuff that eventually sorta resembles revenge! And he doesn’t need any damn evidence!

Episode 21: Catman in Boxer’s Blow (1990)

Thanks so much to Canadian listener Cliff for sending us a box of great tapes to watch. This one made no damn sense at all from start to finish. And this episode might make no sense because MikeD is now Skyping in. Join us on a descent into Hong Kong (Thai? Singaporean? DC Comics?) madness.

Episode 19: Mutant Hunt (1987)

Great bad music. Great bad acting. Great bad cinematography (shot on the mean streets of NYC at 3AM). A Smithersbot, a bitchbot, and robots with gross glorping melting faces. A robot that looks like Matt Geiger. Listen and commiserate as MikeD is devastated by his 3 pals’ refusal to appreciate the inimitable greatness of Mutant Hunt.

Episode 16: Warrior of the Lost World (1983)

Warrior of the Lost World sees a superunintelligent talking motorcycle and its oafish rider explore our dystopian future, saving Jimmy Carter and his daughter from Donald “Halloween” Pleasance. Luckily Halloween Pleasance’s empire can be overthrown by six random streetfighters. Darrill, Lindsay, MikeD and MikeR were impressed by the explosions, and unimpressed by the Megaweapon.

Episode 12: Traxx (1988)

Traxx is an uneven spoof about a cookie-obsessed mercenary vigilante, interpreted by many as a remake of Pootie Tang. Starring Robert Davi as Robert Vaughn, Priscilla Barnes as Stifler’s Mom, John Hancock as Police Chief Biggie Shorty, and radio’s Shadoe Stevens as Pootie Traxx. Can he clean up Hadleyville? And why would he want to? Lindsay, MikeD and MikeR get the facts… on Traxx.
