    Death Race

    Death Race

    The Ride of Frankenstein

    Jason Statham and Tyrese hone their Fast & Furious driving skills as director Paul WS Anderson (Resident Evil) reinstates Roger Corman’s campy bloodsport Death Race as a grim 2008 prison flick. Can a pit crew run by Ian McShane (Deadwood) help a wrongly convicted auto racer stay alive for all three days of the obstacle course, and get revenge on the villain actually responsible for killing Statham’s wife? And what did Oscar darling Joan Allen ever do to wind up in movie jail playing the evil warden? The race for answers starts now!

    Death Race 2050

    Make America Race Again

    Roger Corman re-stages his cinematic Death Race a half-century after ruling the drive-ins of the 1970s. But can new Frankenstein Manu Bennett (The Hobbit) keep pace with his 2050 competition, which includes a pugilistic pop star, a religious zealot from Texas, a genetically altered himbo, and an AI-powered driverless car?  And does the fascism of Chairman Malcolm McDowell (Clockwork Orange) resemble the politics of anyone we know in 2017? Strap on your VR helmet and join fast-talking hosts Jakob, Stuart, and Brock to find out now!

    Death Race 2000

    Road Kill Bill 

    David Carradine risks life and limb to become the most celebrated driver of Death Race 2000.  But does this automotive Frankenstein actually score more points with peace-loving rebels once he starts mowing down the folks responsible for this freeway carnage and avoids hitting women and children crossing the post-apocalyptic streets? And how much mileage do Sylvester Stallone (a year before Rocky) and Martin Kove (Karate Kid) add to their careers by taking Roger Corman’s armored go-karts into theaters four years before Mad Max? Find Out Now!

Paywall!

Really enjoyable usually, really like the hosts, and probably my favourite podcast but lately it feels like every notable movie is behind the paywall. For free though, you can enjoy a Uwe Boll trilogy no one has ever heard of. Will stay subscribed, but waiting for a free straight-to-dvd review ain’t much to rave about. Haven’t yet paid for an episode but probably would if i could buy single episodes.
