It begins again, the 3rd annual All Request January.
Last year was a yet another hit with Mortal Kombat, TMNT 2, Krull and Street Fighter. What will they be this year?
For those new to this, here is how it works.
Here is the deal. For the next week give me all the movies you want to see me do. You can either list them in the comments of this post, email them to firstname.lastname@example.org, or post them on my facebook wall. At the end of week (11/15) I will take the top 20 most requested videos and put up a voting poll. For the next week after that you can then vote for the top 4 you want to see. That gives me all of December to get the episodes together. (also to track down the movies if I have to)
I try my best to do requests during the year but sometimes for whatever reason, I just canâ€™t get to them all. This is your chance to tell me what you really want to see.
Oh and just to get this out there, these are movies I will NOT be doing even if requested.
Tom and Jerry
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
Batman and Robin
Anything from Pixar (nothing against them but what else is to be said?)
So, request away and thanks!
Demonic Toys, Dragon Wars, Gremlins 2, and what the hell…Big Money Rustlas.
I like to add a vote to Gremlins 2: The New Batch
This years request needs more Hulk Hogan so I vote for this too
count me as a third vote for Gremlins II
Big Money Rustlas is awful but in that magical Wicker Man remake way. I would probably have some fun with that.
The Baby, Sunshine (the horror movie), or Never Too Young To Die.
No Retreat, No Surrender (1986)
Tuff Turf (1985)
Club Dread (2004)
Out Cold (2001)
Good stuff. Love Club Dread. Me and my wife still say “Peen-a-lope” fairly often.
Tuff Turf has been on the list for ages.
Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde
the original Stargate film (which I love, but most people seem to hate/bash)
anything with Reb Brown.
Spookies, To Sleep With a Vampire (or Dance of the Damned), Cabin Boy, The Peanut Butter Solution, Ghost Fever, Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation, The Dark Backward, and Rock n Roll Nightmare.
The Peanut Butter Solution! Yes! So glad someone else knows about this movie. So crazy.
THE BLOOD OF HEROES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111!!!!eleven!!!!!!!!!!!!
The is the only thing I need to vote for, because it’s awesome and you know you need to finally do this one. DOG SKULLS!
Madman, Scarecrows, The Haunting (1999), Amsterdamned and Kill List
Haunting was terrific until the end. Still good but it majorly lost steam in the last 10 minutes.
I could probably go on for ages about Kill List.
Third Annual? Where has the time gone?!
I really enjoyed how unique your review of “Prom” last time, so I’d be interested in seeing a look at “Sky High”. You mentioned it in that video, and I’d nearly forgotten that it actually a decent film.
If not Batman and Robin, would you consider doing the original “Batman: The Movie” with Adam West from 1966?
Guess I’m on some kind of superhero kick all the sudden.
I know, right?
Thanks. I thought Prom turned out well and I was trying to venture into some different territory. However, the views were pretty weak, which was a shame. I thought it had some good jokes and I presented it in a way that would be enjoyable even for people who hated that kind of film. Oh well.
Sky High is fun. I’ve had a few requests for Batman 66 now.
Thats a hard one:
– Ghostbusters 2
– Doctor Who (TV Movie)
– Transformers The Movie (the original 80s one)
– The Punisher (2004 one)
Really hope one of it gets on “your” list 😀
I’ve been toying with doing a whole big episode on the three Punisher movies. The Punisher 1989, The Punisher 2004, and Punisher War Zone 2008. Each has their strengths and weaknesses but overall the 89 one is my favorite.
The Island(1980) with Michael Caine
I’ll second the ’66 Batman movie
I haven’t seen that version of The Island in ages
I’ve been holding off on Lifeforce because I just know it is going to be like a half hour long. The Car! I was just talking to someone about that the other day. Deep Rising was brought up a few times this year. Still surprised they never made a sequel.
Nemesis, The Barbarians, Eye of the Tiger, or Cyclone…..all winners.
Nemesis is an all time favorite.
The others are great, I just got the DVD from Shout factory that has most of them on it.
LURK MODE DISENGAGED.
Wrong by Quentin Dupieux; American Ninja (1, 2, or 3); The Ice Pirates; The F.P.
I can’t believe I haven’t done any American Ninjas yet. The F.P.! That would be fun.
Prom Night 3
Good stuff! Orgazmo is in my top 10 favorite comedies.
Bruce Campbell, just….more Bruce Campbell.
I’m really slacking on the Campbell.
Maniac Cop would be a good start.
make an irish guy happy and do Rawhead Rex (1986)
I keep waiting for Shout Factory to pick this one up!
obscure lupa will defenely doo tom and jerry the movie and kingdom of the crystal skull
I don’t think she would.
Also, there are plenty of other films you can recommend!
Meet the Feebles
Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitters Dead
Ah Troll 2. That one pops up every year but hasn’t made it through yet.
Monster Squad is awesome.
You should review the original Troll just to throw people off.
I think Temple of Doom could use some love. As could Alien 3.
And since you did Krull last year, I think it’s time to do Dragonslayer. Vermithrax Pejorative demands it!
I could go on and on about Alien 3. So many great ideas…some never fully realized. Love Temple of Doom, never really considered doing it though.
Mortal Kombat: Annihilation
Annihilation is tough. I’ve tried a few times but just didn’t like it each time.
I have the Japanese cut of Johnny Mnemonic, which to me is the real version of the film. It runs longer, has more character development, a different soundtrack and a whole new subplot.
Hardware is brilliant. That one could end up being one of my longest episodes. (which is why I keep holding off on it, just a time issue)
My best friend and I had such high expectations of Mortal Kombat: Annihilation based on the first one, but within 5 minutes knew it was destined to be a huge letdown (read steaming pile of shit). We were about to walk out of the cinema, but decided to stick with it, on the basis it can only get better, it didn’t 🙁
I forgot to add
Wild Zero (1999)
Great suggestions everyone! Keep em coming!
Surviving the Game (1994) one of my favourite films and what a cast.
Any of the Resident Evil films. The 4th film was my personal favourite.
Bridge of Dragons (1999).
I knew there was a film I forgot Soldier (1998).
Also Double Team (1997).
Bride of Chucky
From Dusk Til Dawn
I’d like to see you explore the Saw series, or the Resident Evil series, but that can wait until October.
Meet the feebles
Man, so many I’d love to see you cover!
Robocop 2 (1990)
Probably doesn’t matter though as everything you turn out is golden.
I got a few more if I could:
Creature (the whole climax of the movie happens off screen! YAY!)
Garbage Pal Kids THE MOVIE!
Howard the Duck
The Room (it has so much support from Hollywood people saying its the worst ever made but so bad its good)
Tucker and Dale vs Evil (I don’t know why a lot of people I try to push to watch this no one does)
And sorry a few more:
Night of the Creeps
Dead Alive (Braindead)
TMNT 3: Turtles in Time!
i think he did night of the creeps
Wow, he sure did. Whoops
i had to think about this cause i put out my choice last year so i might as well make a new one so here are my choices may not be in it but i might as well give it a try
Dee snyder’s strangeland( i still think catfish might of been inspired by this movie but who knows i still can never tell who that person is on the internet if its a real or fake)
angel heart ( mickey rourke at his best, robert de niro at his creppiness)
Cut ( ausstralian slasher movie with molly ringwald)
The crow salvation( this movie was going to be release in theaters in 2000 but when stright to video)
dark half ( movie took a year to be release when Orion pictures went defunct)
leatherface texas chainsaw massacre 3( this could of been the most twisted x rated slasher film but had issues with the mpaa, and producers)
session 9( i think people thought this was a haunted asylum movie but it was not)
crimetime( i have no idea but i felt this one should be notice since karen black passed away)
the adventures of ford fairlane( still a classic)
exorcist III ( another underrated classic that needs a special edition with the original ending that was changed)
cable guy( dark comedy where jim carry is the villian)
desperate hours the remake ( mickey rourke)
the relic ( another underrated creature feature)
the ghost and the darkness( interesting movie )
Honorable mention ( you know your going to have to do this and this is bad, battlefield earth)
the quest ( saw your net flix pick and i do have the movie sure its a retelling of blood sport but its a fun movie)
well that is my pick
Ooo… those are some good picks. I quite liked Angel Heart and I thought Session 9 was brilliant.+
The Relic! Oh man, I remember seeing that one in college. The little old lady curator of the museum looked and talked EXACTLY like one of the English professors. My friend and I couldn’t stop howling every time she talked. That and bobbing for SWAT members…
My pics are Demons 2, Child play 3, X-tros, House, They live, Black Roses, Video dead, Night of the Demons 3 and Demonic Toys.
Childs Play 3 has always been my favorite of that series.
My pics are Demons 2, Child play 3, X-tros, House, They live, Black Roses, Video dead, Night of the Demons 3 and Demonic Toys.
Return of the living dead (1985)
John Carpenter’s Christine, a Movie that I watched again recently which seemed to actually be better now that it has aged. I feel like the movie is actually better now that it’s out in this day and age.
Not to sound like a broken record, but I’d love to see you review the forgotten, tonally uneven, but highly watchable 19th century swashbuckler with a touch of Indiana Jones (actually Temple of Doom and this movie have at least two VERY similar scenes) – Nate and Hayes (1983) with, always a bad ass, Tommy Lee Jones as the real life pirate Captain Bully Hayes (turned into a pirate version of Snake Plissken for the movie, since the real life Hayes was kind of a scummy scumbag).
A pre-WWI Germany sends its latest war machine – a battleship – to pirate waters to test it. A notorious backstabbing pirate (Hayes’ former friend) offers them his services as a guide and they attack a small island village where missionaries (including Nate) live. They kidnap Nate’s fiancee and kill everyone. They also set up Hayes for the attack. Now the two unlikely allies must work together to save the girl (who also has a history with Hayes) and have their revenge. You also have got cannibals, ritual sacrifices, the obligatory crummy bridge over a gorge, a whorehouse and Tommy in a bitchin’ white shirt in this movie. Need I say more?
Other movies that come to mind:
The Ice Pirates (1984) – the cult SF comedy with Ron Perlman and the late great Robert Ulrich, about a group of space pirates who steal water from government ships in the future where a fascist junta runs everything and water is scarce. They suck at their job and kidnap a princess instead. She makes a deal with them to go look for her father who went missing while looking for a planet full of water.
Beastmaster 2: Through the Portal of Time (1991) – I fricking love this movie. Is it bad? Kind of. Is it a good watch? Hell, yeah! And has a bitchin’ soundtrack to boot. And who didn’t have a small crush on Kari and wanted THAT car back in the day?
Firewalker (1986) – Chuck Norris forgotten attempt to do a Indiana Jones movie. And it kicks ass. It even has the man himself – Louis Gossett Jr. and Sallah from Indiana Jones. And the villain is Billy from Predator! Forget Romancing the Stone, THIS is the real B version of Indiana Jones. Chuck and Lou are treasure hunters helping a pretty young lady find a mythical South American treasure. And they have many enemies, not all of them defeatable with a roundkick.
Hell Comes to Frogtown (1988) – Roddy Piper turns Snake Plissken and gets laid. Twice. And the other woman is actually not a frog!
In a postapocalyptic world where men are sterile and women scarce, the new government sends a hot scientist, a dumb ass foul mouthed brute and a hot commando chick to save a bunch of women from a slave trading mutated frog-men.
Hawk the Slayer (1980) – What Legend should have been. Low budget, but well told story, about a good valiant strong but silent brother who must, with a little help from his dwarf, giant and bow-master friend, defend a monastery and stop his evil-incarnate hissy-fit-prone Cartman-ish brother Jack Palance.
Conquest (1983) – Artsy Italian exploitationist attempts making a fantasy movie. The results are dull but curious. A young (naked) witch takes control over a tribe of cavemen savages to eradicate another tribe and eliminate the only one who can stop her. Lots of nudity and violence. Also, the movie features one of the most bullshit weapons ever, but it kind of works
Iron Warrior (1987) – the third Athor movie that got rejected but the series creator, so it became a separate movie, although O’Keefe is still there. Pretty much the same thing as Conan the Destroyer, only much lower on budget, yet much more stylish. A strong silent type warrior falls for a pretty young, often nude woman, a priestess of some kind. An evil goddess (old and thankfully not naked) wants the girl in order to change the balance of power (or something). The other goddesses are neutral and slightly amused. Plenty of nudity and moody imagery, little sense and O’Keefe.
Voodoo (1995) – Corey Feldman goes to the university and fights an evil zombie .fraternity. It’s no Lost Boys or Friday the 13th, Part IV, but it’s probably his last watchable horror.
Made Men (1999) – The last Jim Belushi’s movie where he played a (slimy ) bad ass character. He stole a lot of money from his outfit in NY and went south with his girl, to hide in a small Texan town. One day, his snitch phones him to warn him about the outfit’s posse that’s coming for him. He tries to run, but it’s too late. He now only has his smarts and luck to help him survive the ordeal. A very watchable dark action comedy with a few very fitting twists. Steve Railsback as the moonshining hillbilly patriarch and Timothy Dalton as the corrupt sheriff only add to Jim’s problems.
And a wild card:
Truth or Consequences, N.M. (1997) – a movie that answers the age old question, what would From Dusk til Dawn look like, if it was made with less competency, had no vampires or strip clubs and Vincent Galo and Kiefer Sutherland played Clooney’s and Tarantino’s roles. A group of small time criminals messes up a drug deal and goes on a road trip. The cops are after them, and they are after mob’s money that’s being owed to them. For Kiefer, this is his big break to make his name in the crime world and his lucky coin agrees, while in Galo’s mind, it’s a road of no return.
Please, for the love og god, do not review Bio Dome.
I would like to see “The Majorettes”, “House on Sorority Row” (Original), “Castle Freak” or “Silent Night Deadly Night Part 2”. I love your slasher reviews.
Keep up the good work. 😀
