SZP 016 Robot Jox (1989) Retrospective

April 15, 2022

"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?!

SZP 013 Chef (2014) Retrospective

March 11, 2022

“I may not do everything great in my life, but I'm good at this. I manage to touch people's lives with what I do and I want to share this with you.”

This month we take a look at movies that have personally inspired us or hit us really hard within an area in which we are passionate. Corey cries about 5 times (eh, maybe twice?) during this episode as we discuss John Favreau's movie, Chef. And for good reason since he's a chef too! You're gonna want a grilled cheese sammich after this one, folks!

"Put ya weight on it!"

Rounding out Black History Month, we double-dipped this week with Dolemite and Dolemite is my Name

Rudy Ray Moore did more in his lifetime than most people dream of doing, and somehow we fit all that into our little discussion. It becomes real clear real quick that the movie rating system did not exist in the 70s while 2019's interpretation ended with a whole lot of heart but just as many laughs. It's Dolemite! I ain't lyin'!

February 11, 2022

"It's time for action!"

If you're in Detroit you better watch your back, because the cast of Die Hard and Predator are everywhere in this week's choice: Action Jackson!

We welcome our first guest: El Charrito (AKA Chris) and are immediately derailed discussing burritos, Steven Seagul's energy drink, and college life!

But Carl Weathers quickly pulls us back in with a film filled with studs, stunts, and drugs. Never forget that "Loose lips get squished!"

SZP 010 Don’t Panic (1987) Retrospective

January 31, 2022

"Forget Freddie and Jason. Virgil's the newest nightmare in town!"

Has there ever been a stronger love than that between a monobrow and a pair of dinosaur pajamas? We think not, and neither did Rubén Galindo Jr. apparently! Don't Panic has it, all and doesn't explain a single part of it. Buckle up because there are enough montages, alcoholics, and plates of ham to kill a demon. Sorta.

Side note: did we just experience the unknown inspiration for our name, the Static Zone? Tune in to find out!

January 14, 2022

"Rubber baby buggy bumpers"

We know, we know, we know. Nothing is going to top Making Contact, but we still had fun with this one. Well one of us did... anyway this week we discuss Last Action Hero! Arnold decided to try to fight Jurassic Park with an overly self-aware action movie chock-full of one-liners, explosions, and Danny Devito as a cat! "THE BAD GUYZ ARE 'N DARE!"

December 31, 2021

“Only he can see it. Only he shares its magic. Only he knows the danger.”

We are ending 2021 with a bang! A very confused bang of a movie, but holy moly do we have opinions on this crazy film called Making Contact. Have you seen any movie in the 80's? Well then this movie referenced it or stole a scene frame for frame. No episode of the Static Zone has been as passionate as this one, because there are no simple words to describe this film. Roll it!

SZP 007 Lethal Weapon (1987) Retrospective

December 17, 2021

“Two cops. Glover carries a weapon. Gibson is one. He’s the only L.A. cop registered as a LETHAL WEAPON.”

Lethal Weapon may be one of the most by-the-numbers buddy cop film, but this discussion is anything but! Corey and Scotty are back to hash out one of the many Christmas movies that everyone is always bringin' up around the holidays... right?! It's rated R for a reason and we find that out real quick! We're too old for this stuff!
