Episode 138: The Ice Pirates

This week we watched the 1984 film The Ice Pirates and honestly it was kind of hard to write any sort of description for this episode. The film had a lot of great ideas that it just couldn’t execute, which made for a pretty boring movie. The poster made it look super cool and absurd in all the right ways, but it just fell flat. It also had a hard time making up it’s mind if it wanted to be serious or silly. If you grew up loving this movie, we’d love to hear your thoughts because it just didn’t do much for us at all. Also, friend of the show and past guest Cody joined us for this harrowing journey.

Episode 81: Night Of The Creeps

night-of-the-creeps-crop-1We’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news is your dates are here. The bad news is… they’re dead! This week on a 4th Of July Week edition of B Movie Breakdown, we discuss the 1986 cult classic ‘Night Of the Creeps.’ You may be asking yourself, what does this movie have to do with the ole red, white, and blue? Well, to be honest nothing at all; it just so happens to be the same week. Anyways, the movie is about an alien experiment that crashes to earth in 1959 and infects an innocent young man. They freeze the body, but in the modern day, two geeks pledging a fraternity accidentally thaw the corpse, which proceeds to infect the campus with parasites that transform their hosts into killer zombies. But unlike most zombies these ones are out to eat, they are out to keep spreading their alien slug seed. This movie is streaming on Netlflix, so check it out already!

Next week we have yet another cult classic in store for you! A movie that Gina & Ryan have apparently never seen and offended Corey so much he demanded this be the next film to discuss. In 1987 a group of children took on the classic universal monsters in an epic battle for the ages. This story was well documented in the cult classic we know as THE MONSTER SQUAD!

Remember majority of the movies we watch are available for streaming on Netflix or YouTube! [Unless we say otherwise]

Episode 47: Class Of 1999

class991bGrab an assault rifle and a grenade launcher, because we’re going back to school – WAY back to 1990’s dystopian mayhem-fest, Class of 1999! We love these dark future stories with no basis in reality. By 1999, school violence has risen so dramatically all across the country that the police have completely ceded the areas around schools to the gangs, but somehow still have the power to force gangbangers more heavily armed than a terrorist cell to go to class. Into this environment returns former gang member Cody Culp, who is paroled from his prison sentence for sniffing Leggos on the condition that he goes to class. Unfortunately for Cody and his Black Hearted buddies, the Department of Educational Defense just started using his school as the lab for its new “Tactical Education Units,” or Terminators-turned-teachers. Principal Malcolm McDowell leaves control of Pam Grier and her cyborg colleagues up to Stacy Keach’s mad scientist character Dr. Forest, because who WOULDN’T trust a man with dead eyes and a white mullet who thinks it’s “fascinating” when the teachers start murdering students for minor infractions? After Cody suffers a huge personal loss, he forms an alliance with both the school’s gangs with the rallying cry of, “Let’s waste some teachers!” The take-home message here? “Stay in gangs, kids!” (That or, “Don’t get your balls burned off!”)

Next week, Corey will be joined by friends of the podcast Gina and Ryan as we go back to Netflix for our listener request and recent release, 2013’s Axe Giant: The Wrath of Paul Bunyan! Prissy twenty-somethings at a prison bootcamp inadvertently desecrate the grave of Babe, the Big Blue Ox, causing a giant undead Paul Bunyan to come swinging his giant axe at their heads. This one should give Sharknado a run for its money. All aboard Sgt. Hoke’s happy short bus!
