Treatment 125 – The Prophecy II

Prophecy2DanzigChris Walken is a legend unto himself, and yet we didn’t choose this film because he’s in it! I know, hard to believe right?! So then why did we choose this film? Well, because our special guest, Mr. James Greene Jr. wrote a book all about The Misfits, called This Music Leaves Stains! Still don’t see the connection? Well, you will for 2.7 minutes of the film, when Glenn Danzig makes an appearance!!

The Prophecy II

Yep, it’s a war between angels, and Chris Walken is leading the charge. Also, Russell Wong is seducing Jennifer Beals to make an Angel/human hybrid super-warrior. And also….I dunno, that’s about the full extent of sense being made.

KNEEL… in reverence as James reveals the full, immense awesomeness that is Glenn Danzig‘s acting career!!!

WORSHIP… at the alter of schlock as Doug pulls out his Walken impression (by popular demand)!!!

PRAY… for death, as the show drags into After Movie Dineresque lengths!!!

As ever, this week’s film is available to watch streaming on Netflix Instant. Also, if you’re looking to learn all about The Misfits, you can find James’ book in our store under “other things we like!! The paperback will be available in fine store everywhere in October, so keep that in mind as well!

Next Week: We get adventuresome and watch Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins!!!

Treatment 40 -Best of the Best

At last, it’s our final installment of the Lesser Siblings Month series, and we finish with a bang! Or would that be with a slobbery, weepy moment and a hug? Joining us for this episode is friend of the show, Dennis Anderson, who brings a depth of TV and film trivia to bear on this movie. Our last film for the series features Eric Roberts, brother of Julia! As a bonus, we also get Chris Penn, brother of Sean!

Best of the Best

This one seems promising at first, when you think about the great martial arts tournament movies of the 80s; Bloodsport probably being the genre definer for this period. This one has plenty of action, as it meanders it’s way to the tournament, with endless scenes of people talking, doing situps, and crying! Yes, this film will truly grip you in that stunning moment where the champions learn to do things like jump rope, and run around a track!

SWEAT… as Matt and Marc continue to bicker constantly on such subjects as He-Man characters, impressions, and snappy dressing!!!

STRAIN… as Doug and Marc try to link Lifetime (television for women) to this film!!!

TRIUMPH… as our special guest, Dennis Anderson, lists all the lesser siblings that we missed!!!

As usual, Best of the Best is available on Netflix to watch instantly. So check it out today, and then have a listen. You can also subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, or using our RSS feed listed to the right! We also added the DVD to our store, if you’re looking for a copy! Enjoy!
