August 5, 2022

"When you woke up today, did you say to yourself, 'I'm gonna talk,' or 'I'm gonna skate!?'"

Deception, Southern California, and Doug Funnie cosplay - this movie has it all! Aside from 20 minutes of Nickelodeon 90's TV, we actually discussed the Disney Channel original movie Brink, to close out the X-games movies for the month of July. Did we just decide to get back into aggressive inline? Or maybe Soap Shoes? Find out now!

"Hey, there's my Pizza Hut!"

 

In a time before skateparks and seatbelts, when 1989 felt more like the 90's than the 90's did, Christian Slater ruled the City of Angels with his buddy, Tony Hawk! Call 9-1-1 because it's time to rip it up in Gleaming the Cube!

 

If you didn't have a craving for Pizza Hut before this movie, then you better get your phone ready. Christian Slater has to solve a mystery for his brother's justice before the man really gets him down. Can the SoCal punks take down the big-time baddies? Find out now!

“There Are No Clean Getaways”

 

That story of the scorpion and the frog makes a lot more sense now. Especially if the scorpion is a replicant and the frog is... a mob boss? Yes. Hey, we watched Drive starring Ken, I mean Ryan Gosling!

 

If you've ever played the video game Hotline Miami or wondered what stunt drivers do in their off time then have we got a tale for you! Buckle up, buttercup, because you're riding shotgun and dodging some too!

"When I get outta here... think I'm gonna get laid."

 

Remember when Nu Metal was called Industrial music and we still used flip phones while cruisin' the streets in cars with neons as rad as our frosted tips? Hella good times it's 2002, peeps! And we watched the first Resident Evil movie!

Milla Jovovich and Michelle Rodriguez kick off the saga that drove Scotty insane while Corey sat back livin' that edge lord life. Will the nostalgia be strong enough to get the Static (X) Zone boyz through this movie?! Find out now!

"Do you understand the words that are coming out of my mouth?!"

Let's pray Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker don't listen to this episode because man oh man some things did NOT age well in Rush Hour 2. But hey this was a banger of a movie to end Martial Arts May... in June! Strap in for all the high kicks and hot licks? Do YOU understand the words that are comin' out of our mouths?!

Believe it or not, we are going to dip our toes into another action-packed movie also known obviously for its diverse casting and cultural commentary. That's right we're watching Resident Evil next time!

"I realized then that good guys never win. I want to be bad. I want to be a ruthless killer!"

 

We are KICKING off Martial Arts May with Kung Fu Hustle. I almost want to end the description there, but no! This non-stop film of gang wars, landlords, and gross bad guys really pulled out all the stops. Kung Pow's CG milk has nothin' on some good ol' eagle-hopping. Right?

Next time we are diving into Rush Hour 2, so get ready!

SZP 017 Super Mario Bros (1993) Retrospective

SZP 017 Super Mario Bros (1993) Retrospective

"This Ain't No Game!"

 

You have to "trust the fungus" on this one because we actually enjoyed it. In fact, did Mario beat Sonic to the punch? Maybe he didn't beat him financially, but this film will probably age better than Limp Bizkit jokes and long-winded wedding scenes.

 

Video game movies get a bad rap, and this movie is totally to blame. That in mind, grab your Reebok-branded stompers, order a pizza, and settle down for a wild ride that only 1993 could bring you. It's Super Mario Bros!

"Crash and burn!"

War is outlawed and all political issues are solved through giant robot fights? IT'S THE FUTURE! This week's selection is the inspiration for Pacific Rim and probably Power Rangers - that's right it's Robot Jox!

Cowboy hats, well-lit bar "fights," flying cars, and a single hot dog in meat soup. This movie has it all! But both of us signed up for the Bluray waiting list. What are we?

SZP 015 Strange Invaders (1983) Retrospective

April 1, 2022

"25 Years ago, they arrived from another galaxy. Surprise. They're still here."

You ever watch a movie and think, "Is this a classic movie that I just don't understand?... No I think it's actually horrible." Well, let's just say we each thought half of that for this week's choice: Strange Invaders!

If small towns could talk then they would probably ask why this movie ever happened. It seems that the 80s birthed some amazing things, and then also this movie. But really, Scotty loved it, so what's that say about him? And did this movie just create a plot device stolen by the MCU?

 

Paul Le Mat's Website, yeah buddy!

 

PSA: We are not moving to weekly releases but needed to change our schedule a bit, so we hope you enjoy the brief rapid-fire release! Next episode we return to the bi-weekly release. Thanks!

SZP 014 Not For Resale (2019) Retrospective

March 25, 2022

I really don’t sell video games, I sell memories. Or your childhood back [to you]."

Continuing our discussion of inspirational movies, this week we take a look Not For Resale, the documentary covering retro game stores and the world around them! It's Scotty's turn to cry, but does he?! Did you know he almost opened a game store? This episode easily could have been twice as long, so sit back as the Static boyz go from Rocket League and witch hunts to museums and back sweat?!

Grab the doc here
