  1. Man oh man, if you all are into Cannon Group films these days, then this one is a must see! Richard Chamberlain and Sharon Stone (in her first starring film role) star in this remake based on the H. Rider Haggard novel. It completely rips off Indiana Jones's aesthetics, involves a character named "Prune Face," and is incredibly racist, but unintentionally so (at least, I hope...). There's this one scene where Chamberlain and Stone are getting boiled alive in a giant bowl of soup with floating plastic vegetables. My grandmother had a VHS copy of this that I used to watch as a kid whenever I visited her house. It was the only movie that she owned! Check out the trailer .

    Naked Weapon (2002)

    I just recently jumped on the HDTGM bandwagon, and I'm loving the ride! You guys need to do yourselves a favor and watch "Naked Weapon," a low budget Hong Kong action flick from the early aughts (it's in English, in case you were worried about subtitles). It's the story of girls who get kidnapped from around the world and trained as international assassins to take out powerful male crime bosses. Just check out the trailer, it's worth it: Basically, it's like Battle Royale meets a John Woo film (without any of the things that make John Woo films good) meets softcore porn. There is some really weird Sapphic subtext, a completely egregious and unnecessary group rape scene, and some incredible ADR work. Oh, and it has Maggie Q gyrating in her underwear and killing dudes. What's not to love? When I lived in Korea, they used to play this on one of the cable movie stations every few months, and it is amazing. If you can't find it anywhere, I will send you my copy of the DVD because I feel that strongly that this is the PERFECT HDTGM movie.

    Hardcore Henry (2016)

    Interesting concept, but it can't really sustain itself for 96 minutes IMHO. Still, would love to hear them do this one.

    Shoot 'em Up (2007)

    YES! This would be a good one to do in the tradition of the gang's discussions of the Nevildine & Taylor films. Would love to hear a Blake Harris interview with director Michael Davis, too.

    Ski Patrol (1990)

    This would be a good one; it thinks it's funny, but it is TERRIBLE! T.K. Carter and George Lopez's impressions of Rodney Dangerfield followed by a *literal* record scratch are enough of a WTF?! moment for me.

    Eragon (2006)

    My roommate in Korea took us to see this because she loved the series as well, and I think that her reaction was pretty much the same. This is one of the worst movies I've ever seen, not even enjoyably bad, just BAD.

    Cherry 2000 (1987)

    Also, this could easily be paired for a live double feature with Miracle Mile (1988) from the same writer/director, Steve De Jarnatt (now that's someone I'd love to hear Blake Harris interview, too). Plus, Miracle Mile has a soundtrack by Tangerine Dream. I know that HDTGM has kind of blown their wad already this year on post-apocalyptic LA, but both of these would be fun movies to do.

    The Trust (2016)

    I think that it's been far too long since HDTGM did a Nic Cage film. And The Trust is PEAK Cage! OPEN IT! OPEN IT!

    Return to Oz (1985)

    This movie scared the SHIT out of me as a kid! But it's actually pretty enjoyable, IIRC: the moose bed, the wheelers, the heads, the Nome King. Definitely in the creepy-as-fuck-but-amazing kids' movies camp.

    Naked Weapon (2002)

    This movie NEEDS the HDTGM treatment! Please, someone, help me bump this up the forum ladder!

    Cherry 2000 (1987)

    YES! Please, please, please do this movie. And the time is right: it takes place in 2017. Melanie Griffith's "acting" is atrocious. Laurence Fishburne has a small role, as does the guy who played Leonard in Blade Runner. Jason's reaction to the club scene where they discuss the "oral clause" being "sticky" alone would make it a worthy episode!
  12. Idea for a film: Along the lines of "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen," an Avengers/Justice League hero movie with classic radio serial and comic strip characters. Who would you include? The Shadow The Phantom Prince Valiant The Lone Ranger Dick Tracy Buck Rogers Flash Gordon and Mark fucking Trail!
  13. Also, in every scene with Penelope Ann Miller, if you imagine Alec Baldwin as the scout leader from SNL it's 1000 times creepier (and the Kenny G-esque score makes more sense...)
  14. I think that they touched upon the fact that it's ridiculous that the Shadow needs a disguise in the episode, but I'm curious why when Lamont puts on that red scarf his face changes entirely! It's like Alec Baldwin turns into a fatter Billy Baldwin, a.k.a. Daniel Baldwin...

    The Shadow (1994)

    I second 24 Hour Pizza Party!

    Down Periscope (1996)

    Oh, and how could I forget! A Village People music video over the end credits, singing "In the Navy": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmiqRaQadoY

    Down Periscope (1996)

    This movie has a cast that is way too talented for it: Bruce Dern, William H. Macy, Rip Torn, Harry Dean Stanton! And also Harland Williams, Lauren Holly, Kelsey Grammer, Rob Schneider, Patton Oswald (in a tiny role), Toby Huss. And then you've got one of the most annoying villains in Survivor history, and the dude who played Kyle in Above the Rim. Rob Schneider chews scenery like a mo fo. Lauren Holly's character sets women's rights back about 50 years. Toby Huss does his Frank Sinatra impression on multiple occasions. There is an entire scene oriented around a fart, and another that is a ridiculous "walk the plank" scenario. And a piece of spliced footage of a submarine breaching that is definitely not theirs. And so much more. It has a plot, but there're zero stakes for any of the characters (at least not really). This is one of those movies that screams 90s to me. I think that the font was even the same as Crimson Tide! I keep expecting Kelsey Grammer to say, "Go ahead, I'm listening."
  18. OH PLEASE GOD, YES YES YES!!! From IMDB: "In Taeter City everything is managed by the iron fist of dictatorship members: THE AUTORITY. They use a special radio wave system called Zeed that lets them distinguish criminals from typical law abiding citizens. These special radio waves alter the demented brain of criminals, forcing them to commit suicide in horrible ways. A special police corps called The Biker's retrieves their corpses and delivers them to massive slaughterhouses. These supply the mega fast food chains with the human flesh products they need to feed the masses, non-stop. Here there are no criminals, no crimes, no riots, no crisis... until now. The Zeed system is no longer functioning the way it is supposed to: the criminals are no longer killing themselves; the radio waves are making them stronger! Follow the crazy mission of three Biker officers (Razor, Shock and Wank) charged with managing this chaotic situation. We give you: an 80's movie vibe, insane technology, manga style, crazy action, adrenaline, violence..."
  19. Check it out, some stills from Kindergarten Cop 2 starring Dolph Lundgren! http://vhsdreamz.tumblr.com/post/137457931153/everythingaction-first-look-at-dolph-lundgren What. The. Fuck. This is a totally tasteless comparison, but am I the only one who looks at this and thinks about the Norway massacre at the kid's camp?
  20. These two would make for a GREAT (Bijou Phillips-centric) double feature for a live show. Both are god awful movies on a similarly problematic theme, i.e. rich white kids trying to "slum it" in "hip-hop culture." Havoc features (Academy Award winner) Anne Hathaway getting naked AND , and Black and White has the all time best line ever, delivered by Mike Tyson: "If you can't be nice to someone 100% of the time, then you should just kill that person." A-ma-zing. Also, WU-TANG!
