    The Blood of Heroes (1989)

    "...from the author of Blade Runner and Ladyhawke..." one of my favourite movies of all time (not kidding), this low budget post-apocalyptic sci-fi schlock features The Great Rutger Hauer (TGRH for short) and Joan Chen of Twin Peaks fame. The movie centers around a supposedly wild and brutal game - think weaponized basketball. Our heroes are a wastleland-travelling team of "Juggers", fighting for fame - and room and board. Will things turn around when Joan Chen joins the team as the new runner after a match in her home village that sees TGRHs runner injured? Will they make their way into the League, where the wealthy heap luxuries upon the best Juggers? Or will TGRHs dark past in one of the Nine Cities prevent them from getting there? This movie is straight up awesome, but also such a low budget affair that you can find enough fodder for the show. The game is both well- and ill-done at the same time, there are tons of cliches, Joan Chen must have spent lots of time in ADR from how she sounds, and Rutger Hauer does what he does best. Do this one.

    I've tried my best, but I can't find an option to delete my account - help?

    Thanks Dan, but that doesn't help me. I decided to stop participating on these forums and didn't find a delete function. I feel a bit uncomfortable that my email address is part of this forum('s database) apparently for forever, and that I have no way to remove it. edit: actually, nvm. After a few false starts I managed to change it to a disposable one, which I'm content with.
  3. topic only seems to be forbidden, so see topic I guess.

    I waited for a while, but on response. Is there really no option for users to delete their account or am I missing something obvious?

    Episode 143 - Gods of Egypt

    Eh, this is quite surely on me. I guess I'm pretty down right now, nothing to do with you really. However, Auden hit the nail on the head when she wrote "Cameron H. and Quasar Sniifer are both veteran posters who are well-liked and respected. We tend to write long posts and go off on tangents and go off-topic on this forum. So if these things bother you, you probably won't be happy here" - she's right, I feel occasionally that this forum, considering it is not a chat, is too much like a "home environment" for a select few (2nd language here, I hope this works) and get annoyed with the "white noise" I sometimes need to read past. Other times I have no problem with that at all, so like I said, this is most likely on me. For what it's worth, what I tried to say with my lead-in was that I could tell by your second paragraph where you were going and a writing format like this is the type of thing reddit likes to beat like a dead horse, i.e. keep doing it at every occasion until it becomes tiresome (which they have indeed done for that specific style). I realize this couldn't come across as anything else but hostile, but I stand by the factual part of it either way while trusting you when you say you took no offense. I would complain about being lumped in with the "reddit crowd" just because I referenced it, but in this case I'll have to admit I would have read what I wrote the same way if someone else had posted it, so what can you do. Carry on. edit: also, I don't believe in hell, it's literally just a thing to say, like "with the heat of a thousand suns" etc. Quasar should just have cut the quote down to a few lines, I'm not saying he's not supposed to say he liked it.

    Episode 143 - Gods of Egypt

    No offense to cameron, but that was too long and after skimming I got the gist. Reddit really teaches you to skip that sort of post (they drive everything into the ground to be fair). The guy who quoted him in full to add a line of comment deserves to burn in hell though. Anyway, this movie managed to be less boring than troy, while still being worse overall, not a simple feat. I'm trying to remember something positive about it, but I don't think I can. Goddamn, this left me... bleak. I'll pay a hundred million imaginary dollarooes to the team if they put on exit to eden to cheer me up!

    Episode 142.5 - Minisode 142.5

    Watching gods of egypt - I'm not usually one to join the chorus of "how dare they cast [white actor] for [non-white character]", but I'm only 14mins in and this is getting ridiculous. This is egypt ffs, and gerard butler is... well, in this movie. Hotdamn, this one's a mess. Also, I was pretty sure that thief with the woman was a "before/back then" type character, and now I have the bad feeling pretty boy is going to be crucial to the plot. not since rubber-lipped gemma arterton in clash of the titans have I had such a bad reaction to someones looks in a movie...

    Episode 141 - The Shadow: LIVE! (w/ Pete Davidson)

    Skimmed the 4 pages of comments as responsibly as I could in my current state, but I feel quite secure stating that nobody in the comments (listening to episode proper still to come) mentioned the terrible, terrible obvious glued-on beard on the villain, nor the music over the ending credits, both of which I would expect to have been pointed out. Come on people, step up your game. Checking back tomorrow.

    Whee! 74 comments in and late, late at night (or indeed early in the morning after hanging on to coverage of the munich attacks) I catch the new show! I'm excited without knowing anything, but in a rare occurrence I *did* watch both the shadow and the phantom beforehand. Just tell me June is featured, I love her to death! (again, sorry paul.)

    Episode 136 - Hell Comes to Frogtown: LIVE!

    Haven't read the comments yet, I had a comp failure recently and the esposito-episode comments from all sides (read that again, *all* sides) were so bad I nearly got cancer, so I've abstained. But I thoroughly enjoyed this episode, and finally watched the movie just now. Turns out it is *not* the movie I mistook it for. From what I can scrape together, I must have watched some softcore sex-comedy when I was very young. It seemed very nearly to be this one, but now I can recall that the last fertile guy was adrift at sea when some unspecified/unexplained desaster rendered everyone sterile. I'm going to read this thread at some later point, and if anyone dared to say anything bad about "They Live", I have only this to say: I am going to find you, and you are going down.

    Twins (1988)

    I've googled and used the search function, it's not on here yet. Just... why? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twins_%281988_film%29 Danny Devito and Arnold Schwarzenegger are twins. I refuse to add any more plot details. Why isn't this a single-digit episode already?
  17. I thought of this because something triggered the memory of this masterpiece: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Party_at_Kitty_and_Stud's It's a soft-core porn movie featuring a young Silvester Stallone. Even the wiki page mentions he did it because he was homeless at the time. Obviously, it's a movie, and worth mentioning because of Sly, but... let's be real, there's not much to actually discuss there. Which other movies can you think of that fit the theme for the show, but would inevitably make a poor episode?

    The Cannonball Run (1981)

    Rewatched this today, totally fitting for the show. Saw it first time in english as well, which was a surreal experience. What a terrible, terrible ending!

    Saturn 3 (1980)

    Only disappointing in retrospect! This may be one of my first proper sci-fi memories, as I saw it as a young child. I was terrified of the robot, and even though I hadn't hit puberty, the idea of being on an isolated space station with Farrah Fawcett and taking sexy pills was most appealing... Worth doing still - not the perfect candidate, but you can laugh at the low tech at least. I maintain that the basic premise is rock solid to this day. (pretty sure this is available on youtube in full, but I won't check/link to it, as I've posted three full youtube links on this forum, and all three went defunct shortly after)

    Swordfish (2001)

    The hacking/blowjob scene alone makes this worth the show. Plus, Travolta, and that isn't even the end of it.
  22. IJoinedJustForThis


    I've seen this as a kid and as an adult (like two years ago), and I don't feel it's all that terrible. I wouldn't recommend it as a "great movie", but it's... it's not terrible, is it? I feel I need to rewatch. But hey, anything that has Rutger Hauer in it is automatically made better. Then you got Michelle Pfeiffer (if you like that sort of thing), and a very young Matthew Broderick. Not that I wouldn't like the gang doing this movie, but I'm not sure it's terrible enough. There are sooo many better recommendations on this board.

    The Expendables series

    I feel like if we're allowed to nominate a whole franchise, I have to suggest the Riddick series - it has Vin Diesel as the main protagonist, who never really becomes likeable. He barely ever speaks, so all character development has to be taken from him being bad ass, and us nerds will just have to understand that this makes him the hero, despite all evidence to the contrary. You have the strange change of scope over three movies - the first one is a simple crashed-transport-survivors-have-to-band-together film, and Riddick is a convict, that's it. Relatively solid if middling and flatly written action flick. The second movie goes all out space opera - suddenly there are these Necromongers, a warfaring group of religious zealots that conquer their way across the known universe in pursuit of the "underverse" (don't ask), and it turns out that Riddick is the last of a race called the Furyians. Those apparently have a revenge thing going on with those Necromongers, as Riddick gets blessed with the spiritual mark of the furians in a sort of dream sequence... Anyway, just after it turns out some other guy is also a Furyian somehow, that guy commits suicide, and then Riddick takes on the Necromongers, defeating the lead baddie and becoming overlord a la Conan. This whole movie is quite well done visually, the necromongers certainly have a style of their own. Bam, third movie - and it's scaled back enormously again. Riddick, not talking for a solid first 15-20mins of the film, has been leader of the (murderous, remember? what did Riddick do all those years?) Necromongers without converting and gets betrayed and left for dead on some hostile planet. It turns into movie one again, only this time the wrecked crew consists of two opposing teams of bounty hunters out for riddick, with one of the worst psychopaths of all time. Santana, who I suspect wrote all his own dialogue, spouts terrible dialogue and is clearly someone's limited imagination of someone mental and presumably french. Riddick speaks even less in this one, and while there is some Necromonger framework, the 3rd movie threw out all their pleasing visuals - and indeed all the relationship to Riddick. You may as well skip the 2nd movie and do the 3rd one as a sequel. Nothing about Furyians (that dumb fucking name, oh man) anymore, he abandons the whole necromonger thing right until the end, where they vaguely set up another sequel (announced as in the works on wiki). I'm sorry, this got superlong - but I watched all those three a few days ago, and the inconsistencies are striking. Plus, you know, Vin Diesel. Things I never want to hear again: Riddick (aka Vin Diesel) predicting he'll be "balls deep into Dahl (aka poor Katee Sackhoff) [later], but only because she asked [him] to". Yuck. Apparently, it's an expression of how cool and strong he supposedly is, but I got squicked out nonetheless. Spoiler: she follows through. Yuck again.

    Episode 128 - Streets of Fire: LIVE!

    I didn't expect much, but I was quickly grinning at the length of it all - the face shots, the walking feet. Totally lost it when the first cop shook his head, everything after that (the 'eh-I'm-making-like-I'm-a-funny-guy-and-vaguely-italian' 2nd cop, and the overlong we-look-like-enemies-but-we're-bros grin exchange) was just a bonus. Can't believe that's only 1:47min, it felt like my life drained away while watching...
