Episode 137: The Last American Virgin

Teen comedies were huge in the 80’s and most are considered classics to this day, but none were quite like The Last American Virgin from 1982. It’s like a cross between Porky’s, Fast Times At Ridgemont High, and Pretty In Pink, but with a really dark and depressing final 20 minutes. And unlike most of the fore mentioned films, no one in this one really learns any sort of lesson whatsoever. They just go on being even shittier, sluttier, and neckbeardier, if thats a word, than they were before.

Episode 136: The Marine 5 Battleground …. Kind Of….

This week we watched the WWE Studios film The Marine 5: Battleground starring some of our favorite WWE superstars; including The Miz, Maryse, Naomi, Health Slater, Curtis Axel, and Bo Dallas. We talked a lot about this film. We had a lot of laughs. We had our friend Cody join us for a special appearance. We had a great time recording an episode….then after about an hour and twenty minutes we realized technology had failed us and the episode didn’t record. So there will forever be a lost episode of B Movie Breakdown and in it’s place is a summation of the events that happened in that lost episode. We apologize for our flop.

Episode 116: Thrashin’

untitled3Some say it’s hot. Some say it’s reckless. Some even say it’s totally insane. But we can all agree that it is in fact Thrashin’. In 1986 only one rivalry truly mattered, The Ramp Locals vs The Daggers. The Ramp Locals just wanted to have some summer fun skating around and scooping up the ladies, but Corey Webster, leader of The Ramp Locals, scooped up the wrong one. Chrissy just so happens to be the sister of Tommy Hook, badass leader of The Daggers. After very little plot and an endless amount of montages, will Corey Webster win the race and finally get the girl of his dreams?

Our next episode will most likely be some sort of half episode. But fear not, as we will be back in full force on November 30th when we go on the adventure of a lifetime with Alan Quatermain & The City Of The Lost Gold.

Episode 104: The Adventures Of Hercules

AdventuresOfHercules3Uncovering ancient history can be a challenge. Modern scholars, relying on information left behind by our ancestors;  be it writings, infrastructure, artifacts, etc… (if they left anything behind at all) decipher these puzzle pieces, in an attempt to assemble a coherent narrative that best describes the culture in which they are studying. As I said, some civilizations leave behind a plethora of information, while others leave behind but a trace of their existence at all. Luckily for you and I, some ancient Greek, most likely named Jim, shadowed the great Hercules and documented his most epic battles, thereby giving us a perfect manuscript detailing actual historical fact, that the beloved people at Cannon films turned into not one, but two glorious films! Today, we discuss the real life adventures of a real life historical figure as he battles real life historical gods and kings in the real life movie The Adventures of Hercules. Its a rare feat to watch history brought to the screen in such a believable fashion! Motion pictures like these should not be taken for granted!

Next week…well we we’re going to watch God’s Not Dead to have a slight connection to The Adventures Of Hercules. You know since this was about Hercules and Kevin Sorbo also played Hercules and he is in God’s Not Dead. But being short on time we could not access God’s Not Dead quick enough and when we typed it into Netflix the top suggestion was Left Behind. No, not the Kirk Cameron version of Left Behind, but actually the 2014 remake starring Nicolas Cage!

Episode 103: Peggy Sue Got Married

peggy-sue-got-married-1800x1080

What would you do if you could live your life over? What would you do if you could change every mistake you ever made? What would you do if your grandpa was part of a time travel cult?

Would you still marry your psycho husband or would you have sex with the local communist? Peggy Sue had to answer all of these questions and then some in today’s episode, where we discuss the Francis Ford Coppola (hmm what else has he directed, I can’t place it…) film, Peggie Sue Got Married.

Next week we dive back into the Cannon Film library with the 1985 film The Adventures Of Hercules, starring Lou Ferrigno. What crazy antics will the son of Zeus get into when he comes down from Mount Olympus to retrieve The Seven Thudnerbolts stolen by renegade Gods.

Episode 100: Invasion U.S.A.

3rediscoverthe80scom1We have reached a milestone here at B Movie Breakdown, the epic Episode 100 and boy do we have a movie for you. This week we watched the Cannon Films classic Invasion U.S.A. starring the forever badass Chuck Norris! It’s surprising we have never done a Chuck Norris movie before, but this movie was well worth the wait. Retired CIA agent Matt Hunter is forced back into the business when a villain from his past re-emerges. Soviet Mikhail Rostov, a terrorist whom Matt once caught, wants to exact revenge. After failing to find Matt at his Everglades home, Rostov and his army of Communist guerrillas begin carrying out terrorist acts all over southern Florida. Millions of innocent lives are at risk, and it’s up to MattHunter to take them down!

Due to unforeseen circumstances, will be taking a week off next week. So Episode 101 will not drop until Wednesday June 8th. Speaking of Episode 101, we decided to put ourselves through some true torture by watching the 2016 Fantastic Four movie. We think it’s time for Fox to just give up those rights to MARVEL already.

Episode 99: My Pet Monster

pet2On our journey to Episode 100 of the podcast, we hit a major bump in the road this week with My Pet Montser (A Live-Action Video Cassette). Some of you may remember this movie, but more of you most likely remember the plush doll it was based on or the short lived animated series. For a movie based on a plush doll, it does take some major strides to make sure the monster looks nothing like it, but also not really focus on the monster all that much in the first place. I could tell you this movie is about a boy named Max who gets turned into a monster while starring at a cartoonish statue all because he didn’t eat, but I would only be telling you half the truth. The majority of this movie seems to focus on Max’s brother and his uppity girlfriends show dog. Regardless, the movie is quite absurd and leaves you with a plethora of questions never to be answered. You can watch the movie in full via YouTube.
