Episode 129 - Knights of Badassdom and Alom.net

Haven't we all had one of those days where our girlfriend dumps us, our friends force us into live-action role-playing and then said friends accidentally summon a succubus? We've all been there. And that's where Joe finds himself with Knights of Badassdom.

Once we are done discussing that film, we move on to our bottom 100 movie, Álom.net, which is about another topic that has been covered to death, Hungarian romantic comedies about two teenagers who fall in love over instant messenger without realizing that they are also rivals in the real-world; it's this generation's You've Got Mail!

Episode 128 - Panic Button and Red Zone Cuba

In our main film this week, Panic Button, we learn all about the dangers of winning all-expense paid trips from a major social networking site. Or at least that's what our 4 heroes learn after they win an all-expenses paid trip to New York courtesy of All2gethr.com. What starts out as an in-flight chance to win fabulous prizes quickly takes a much more sinister turn.

Then in our bottom 100 film, true horror strikes as the third and final Francis Coleman movie, Red Zone Cuba makes its way on to our screens. I'm not going to lie, this movie is pretty bad.

Episode 127 - Critters 3 and The Skydivers

This week we dip back into the Critter well with Critters 3. This time around the Crites are terrorizing a small apartment building and none other than a young Leonardo DiCaprio drops by to get entangled in the whole situation. 

Then in our bottom 100 movie, if you thought a movie about planes flying around was fun, wait until you get a load of this movie about people jumping out of planes. That's right it's none other than The Skydivers made by Francis Coleman, the same man responsible for The Beast of Yucca Flats. How you can you lose?

Episode 126 - Cherry 2000 and Ben and Arthur

Don't you just hate it when your robot girlfriend shorts out? According to Cherry 2000, that's the sort of problem we will all be dealing with in 2017. That's the dilemma the hero of the film faces. The good news is he is able to save Cherry's memories; the bad news is the only place he can get another Cherry 2000 chassis is in the remote Zone 7 that is ruled over by a crazed Tim Thomerson. But Sam is able to hire E Johnson, the best tracker in the business, to help him find his robo-love so maybe not all hope is lost. 

Then in our bottom 100 movie, Ben and Arthur just want to get married and live happily ever after. Unfortunately for them, Arthur's brother Victor is not only super homophobic but he also belongs to a church that apparently keeps a hitman on retainer. This one is really bad but in that Birdemic or The Room sort of way.

Episode 125 - Bad Grandpa and The Starfighters

To pull a cliched saying out of the dustbin, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. To that end, here are two terrible movies, Bad Grandpa and The Starfighters. Don't worry, there is much less restraint displayed in the episode itself.
