Leviathan

leviathan

Date Watched: 7/27/17

Starring: Peter Weller, Daniel Stern, Ernie Hudson aka little Chinese karate guy, Hector “Lyle” Elizondo

Plot: Alien, but in the ocean

Rules

  • Scientific mumbo jumbo
  • Pepsi product placement
  • Daniel Stern being a scumbag
  • Mutations

Quotes

  • “When I get up top, I’ll be drinking beers and eating pussy.”
  • “Generic alteration?” – “Genetic!”
  • “Homo aquaticus”
  • “That’s just great.  You’re telling me we got a god-damned dracula in here?!”
  • “I realize you’ve gone through hell.” – “Gone – Bitch, we’re still here!”
  • “Hey, I ain’t never going to be able to sleep again in life.  Ever.”

Viewer Quotes

  • “Is she running without a bra?”
  • “You want a Russian to take medicine?  Put it in the vodka.”
  • “The sharks are unnecessary at this point.”

Things We Learned

  • Science stuff courses in tubes in the kitchen in mining shacks.
  • The best way to mutate a Russian is to spike the vodka.
  •  Leviathans drink blood and absorb the intelligence of its victims.
  • Punching your boss makes you feel better.

Final Take: This was a movie a few of us remembered to be pretty dang scary to our 8 year old selves, but it doesn’t quite live up to the memory.  The effects aren’t nearly as special anymore and you’re left just wishing for more t & a.  Ernie Hudson is the best thing about this movie.  It might be worth watching just for a few of his late-movie quotes.  Other than that, it was less than noteworthy.

The Last Witch Hunt

The_Last_Witch_Hunter_poster

Viewing Date: 6/22/2017

Starring: Vin Diesel, Michael Caine, Elijah Wood

Plot

The modern world holds many secrets, but the most astounding secret of all is that witches still live amongst us; vicious supernatural creatures intent on unleashing the Black Death upon the world. Armies of witch hunters battled the unnatural enemy across the globe for centuries, including Kaulder, a valiant warrior who managed to slay the all-powerful Queen Witch, decimating her followers in the process. In the moments right before her death, the Queen curses Kaulder with her own immortality, forever separating him from his beloved wife and daughter in the afterlife. Today Kaulder is the only one of his kind remaining, and has spent centuries hunting down rogue witches, all the while yearning for his long-lost loved ones. However, unbeknownst to Kaulder, the Queen Witch is resurrected and seeks revenge on her killer causing an epic battle that will determine the survival of the human race. (via IMDB)

Rules

  • The witch hunter cross is shown
  • Say “witch”
  • Kaulder is placed under a spell.

Quotes

“What?  She’s a cat person.”

“You know what I like about thrift shops?  Everything in them is old.”

 

Viewer Quotes

“Elijah Wood is clearly a witch” (within 1 minute of EW’s character being on-screen)

“I wonder which movie was more of a box office failure, this or Babylon A.D.” (answer Babylon A.D.)

“Look- a blatant Gladiator rip-off…  With witches.”

What We Learned

  • Back in the 1600’s witch hunters used roadside flares
  • Witches caused the Black Plague
  • Witches are put in witch prison
  • Even after losing his invulnerability, horrible injuries can’t slow down Vin Diesel
  • Elijah Wood’s character was pointless- and obviously a “twist” bad-guy from the start.
  • Michael Caine cashed a paycheck by playing a dead guy or looking out a window

Viewing Date: 5/11/17

Starring:  Emily Booth, Jamie Honeybourne, Sam Butler (some Brits)

Plot

A TV crew, desperate to boost ratings, arrive on a remote Welsh farming island to investigate an intriguing incident. A local girl and her boyfriend had been abducted by aliens, who also impregnated her. (via IMDB.com)

Rules

  • “English!! (spitting)
  • Stones (mini Stonehenge)
  • Fluid get splattered.
  • Dismemberment

Quotes

  • “Nobody fucks with a UFO enthusiast!”
  • “What the fuckin’ hell the matter is with our bovine chums?”
  • “At least I’ll never get pregnant…  Loser!!!”
  • “I think it’s a little too late to win them over, honey!”
  • “What in Roddenberry’s name is that?!”

Viewer Quotes

  • “To me, it still doesn’t beat the thing going in his ass.”
  • “Aliens, Zombies and Nazis.  Those are the things that you can kill in video games and no one cares.”
  • “Now that’s what I call an abortion.”

What we Learned

  • Its very easy to rip off arms and dismember people / aliens.
  • You fly UFO’s and also mind control humans by rubbing a giant brain
  • Just go for the alien mask- an unmasked alien is an instant kill.

Final Take

This was a re-watch of one of our most memorable BMT films.  As we remembered, it was gratuitous in every sense- and a lot of fun to watch again.  This movie is in the Bad Movie Thursday hall of fame.

The Perfect Weapon (2016)

Perfect Weapon

Date Watched: 4/27/2017

Starring: Steven Seagal and the bad guy from “Kindergarten Cop”

Plot: In the not so distant future, society is controlled by the powerful State and a dictator known as the Director. Condor works as a hitman for the State, but a reunion with someone he thought was dead forces him to consider who his enemies really are.  (From IMDB)

Rules:

  • Seagal wearing stupid sunglasses
  • Seagal taking off stupid sunglasses (2 drinks)
  • Someone says “the State”
  • Killing people with a single blow

Quotes:

  • “They watch us through those things!”  (Said as he shoots the TV.)
  • “There he is, the legenadry Condor.”

Viewer Quotes:

  • “I can’t tell who’s fighting who.”
  • “It’s a good thing that woman just casually walked into the men’s bathroom.”
  • “Once you make a man’s head explode, there’s no going back.”
  • “I’m not sure what happened, but it seemed pretty stupid.”

Things We Learned:

  • Strip clubs in the future have hula hoops and shiny things.
  • The Bad Movie Thursday gang would rather go to dinner with Seagal over Van Damme, and Gary Busey over Seagal.
  • Cardboard boxes offer great protection against bullets.
  • Handsprings make you invulnerable to gunfire.
  • When you’re on the run, your own home isn’t the best place to hide.

Final Take:  Pretty forgettable, but the production value was decent, and it wasn’t boring.  You could do a lot worse than this.  I would say that hearing the word “Condor” over and over again made us wish that we were watching “Condorman” instead.

  • All snakes eat meat.
  • You can tap into a phone by putting a suction cup on the side of another phone.
  • Boobs can make a bad movie seem much better.

Final Take: This was a keeper.  Definitely recommended.  Unintentionally funny, lots of boobs, explosions, and a contaminated snake that keeps making appearances for almost no reason.  It has all the trimmings.

Druids aka The Gaul (2001)

Druids Picture

Date Watched: 2/23/17

Starring: Christopher “There can be only one” Lambert

Plot:

An entire nation’s destiny lies in the hands of one man.  (From IMDB)

Rules:

  • Silly Hats
  • Stupid Place Names
  • Stupid Hair

Quotes:

  • “Now, kick me in the ass.”
  • “Your incomprehensible talking does not help me.”
  • “Between a boy and a girl, I should be something different.”

Viewer Quotes:

  • “Why is Christopher Lambert still playing a young man?  Maybe at 50 that time is over.”
  • “I miss the days that you can throw food at someone without repercussion.”
  • “This movie feels like a fever dream.”
  • “Is that character’s name vas deferens?”
  • “I think this is like a 4 hour script and they picked scenes out at random to film.”
  • “We could just turn this movie off right now and my life would be better for it.”

Things We Learned:

  • Christopher Lambert can grow a mustache at any time and in any scene.
  • Graham only falls asleep during one movie = Druids.

Final Take:

This movie is a slog to get through.  I have no idea what this movie was about.  Halfway through the movie I started googling information to find out when Twins 2: Triplets would be released.  This nonsensical gibberish is not worth it.  Stay away.
