Episode 174 - Mercenaries and Raze

This week on Failing Grade we have a Zoë Bell double-bill! First up, we take a look at 2014's Mercenaries. When the president's daughter is kidnapped by a ruthless warlords the only dudes bad enough to save her are Zoë Bell, Kristanna Loken, Vivica A. Fox and Nicole Bilderback. This one is from Asylum and, perhaps not surprisingly, cheesy fun is the name of the game. 

Rounding out our double-bill is 2013's Raze. This time Zoë Bell and 49 other women have been kidnapped by some weird cult. The women are paired off in brutal unarmed combat and told to fight to the death. Should they refuse to fight, or should they be killed in a fight, their family will also be murdered. Will Zoë Bell stand for those kinds of shenanigans? You'll have to watch to find out!

Episode 173 - Annabelle and Dolls

If creepy dolls are your thing then we have the episode for you! First up, we talk about Annabelle. After a doll is involved in some bad business it just may be possessed by a demon. But that's not going to stop this family from keeping said devil doll in the same room as their newborn. Fair warning, this one is supposedly "based on true events." 

Then we take a look at a movie that doesn't insult our intelligence with Dolls. In this one, Judy is on a trip with her horrible father and even more horrible stepmother when they end up having car troubles and spending the night at a mysterious house belonging to an even more mysterious elderly couple of toymakers. I would say not everything is as it seems, but really it is as it seems. Still a fun movie though!

So gather up your favorite dollies and join us for this week's episode!

Episode 172 - Eliminators and Cellar Dweller

This week we went for another double-serving of 80s cheese. First up, it's Eliminators. Eliminators is one of the many films where a time-travelling mandroid teams up with a scientist, a riverboat captain, a martial arts master and a comic relief robot in order to stop a mad scientist from setting himself up as the ruler of ancient Rome. Pretty typical stuff, really. 

Then we take a look at Cellar Dwellers. In this movie we learn that creating comics is great and all, but you probably shouldn't be adding in strange symbols from the ancient evil-looking type books that you find in a musty old basement. It tends to make things a bit more complicated.

Episode 171 - Cyclone and Arena

This week we delve into some cheesy 80s sci-fi. First up, it's Cyclone. When her boyfriend is murdered by a nefarious group, it's up to Teri to keep his weaponized motorcycle, and its powerful new energy source from falling into the wrong hands. 

Then, in the future, arena fighting is all the rage. However, it turns out that compared to the many other sentient lifeforms out there, humans are a bit rubbish at it. But there's one human that just might change everyone's opinion on that in Arena

So if goofy sci-fi from the 80s is your idea of a good time, you will definitely want to check out this week's episode.
