    Twister (1996)

    Twister (1996)

    This week on the Everything Actioncast, Zach and Chris face the dark side of nature and the 90s disaster classic Twister, as its sequel, Twisters, hits theaters this weekend.

    Bill Paxton stars as former storm chaser Bill Harding, who reunites with his ex-wife Jo (Helen Hunt) to make sure she has finalized their divorce papers, but he gets pulled back into chasing tornadoes when he finds out Jo and her team have built "Dorothy," a device he and Jo designed to study tornadoes from within.  Bill gives Jo one day to try to get Dorothy flying, and his new fiancée, Melissa (Jami Gertz), gets dragged along for the ride.  Zach and Chris discuss what would probably really happen if you were super close to an F5 tornado, what Dusty's (Phillip Seymour Hoffman) job on Jo's team is, who is sponsoring the "evil" team led by Cary Elwes, the various mishaps and injuries that happened on set and more.

    You can watch Twister currently on Max.  Next week, we're digging into Logan's past and talking about X-Men Origins: Wolverine as Deadpool & Wolverine hits theaters.

    Lance Guest stars as Alex Rogan, who wishes to escape his trailer park home and unexpectedly gets his chance when, after beating the record on the arcade machine Starfighter, he's recruited by intergalactic hustler Centauri (Robert Preston) to put his skills to the test for real, become a Starfighter for the planet Rylos, and help them defeat the evil Xur (Norman Snow) and the invading Ko-Dan armada.  Zach and Chris try to figure out Centauri's scheme for making money off Starfighter, celebrate the greatness of Grig (Dan O'Herlihy), the wacky adventures of Beta, the (at the time) cutting-edge CG effects, and more.

    The Karate Kid Part III (1989)

    The Karate Kid Part III (1989)

    This week on the Everything Actioncast, Zach and Chris enter the world of evil karate to talk about The Karate Kid Part III, which recently celebrated its 35th anniversary, and it's also just in time for the start of the sixth and final season of Cobra Kai.

    Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita return as Daniel LaRusso and Mr. Miyagi, fresh from their trip to Okinawa in The Karate Kid Part II.  Instead of going to college, Daniel buys a rundown store on the wrong side of town and tries to open a bonsai store with Mr. Miyagi.  Unfortunately for the duo, John Kreese (Martin Kove) is looking for revenge after he was humiliated in The Karate Kid and contacts his millionaire friend Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith) to enact an extremely complicated scheme to crush Daniel and Mr. Miyagi under the might of Cobra Kai.  The guys talk about the over-the-top Bond villainy of Terry Silver, the surprising amount of mountain rappelling in a karate movie, the legality of a 17-year-old leasing a business in 1980s California, the movie's surprising importance to Cobra Kai, the extremely abbreviated All Valley Tournament and more.

    You can watch The Karate Kid Part III on Starz or buy/rent it from digital storefronts like Amazon. Next week, we'll discuss The Last Starfighter as it celebrates its 40th anniversary.

    Everything Action Commentary: Madame Web (2024)

    Everything Action Commentary: Madame Web (2024)

    For this month's Everything Action Commentary, Zach and Chris catch Digital Pimp's Joe and Phil in their web to watch the 2024 theatrical bomb turned Netflix hit, Madame Web.

    Dakota Johnson stars as Cassie Webb, a paramedic in New York City in 2003.  After a near-death experience while on a rescue call, Cassie starts to experience deja vu and slowly realizes she is getting glimpses of the future.  When she has visions of three young girls (Sydney Sweeney, Isabela Merced, and Celeste O'Connor) getting attacked and killed by a mysterious attacker, she decides to intervene and help them.  The assassin is Ezekiel Sims (Tahar Rahim), who shares Cassie's precognitive abilities and enhanced strength and agility. He has visions of the three girls killing him with superpowers in the future.  While watching Madame Web, the guys point out all the Pepsi product placement, the insane camera zooms and editing, the correct and incorrect way to do CPR, the hilariously terrible dialogue, try to figure out anything about Ezekiel and his plans, and more.

    You can stream Madame Web on Netflix [https://www.netflix.com/search?q=madame&jbv=81762621] and watch along with the Everything Action crew.

    This week on the Everything Actioncast, Zach and Chris shrink down to talk about the 1989 classic Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, which is celebrating its 35th anniversary.

    Starring Rick Moranis in one of his most iconic roles, Wayne Szalinski, he's an inventor trying to perfect his latest gadget, a shrink ray that will reduce the size of objects.  When his daughter Amy (Amy O'Neill) and Nick (Robert Oliveri) and the neighbors Little Russ (Thomas Wilson) and Ron Thompson (Jared Rushton) are accidentally shrunk and thrown out in the trash, the quartet of kids has to make their way through the massive backyard jungle to get back home.  The guys talk about the awesome sets and practical effects, question why Wayne couldn't sell any of his other seemingly useful gadgets, the military applications of the shrink ray as a laser, the traumatic death of Antie, and more.
