    Karate Combat 45 Recap!

Joining me for this inaugural episode is coach, trainer and multi-time kickboxing and MMA champion German ‘The Bat’ Baltazar! Listen in as we breakdown Karate Combat 45: Dubai- Karate vs. Muay Thai! This was an especially fun card with the contrast in styles, the special ruleset, and some of the VERY big names they had fighting on it. We give our honest critique of what we liked and didn’t like about the event, what appeals to us about Karate Combat, and what we think they still need to work on.

    Monkey Man

    Monkey Man

    New episode alert! This week we are tackling the brand new, pulse-pounding epic- Monkey Man! A cinematic experience like nothing you’ve ever seen, this non-stop thrill ride will keep your eyes glued to the screen from start to finish! Ultimately captivating from the beginning, but consciously aware of narrative structure, first time Director/ writer/star Dev Patel brilliantly creates a slow burning yet highly kinetic, viscerally mesmerizing, in your face revenge thriller! Deeply engrained in multiple cultures, genres, and cinematic modes- Patel proves himself as an all around powerhouse with one of the best directorial debuts in recent memory, and like the character he so passionately portrays, has been reborn as the ultimate leading man! Listen is as we break down the brilliance of this film, why we feel it is so good, and why you should immediately stop what you are doing and go see it in theaters!

    Road House (2024)

    Road House (2024)

    This week, Gavin and I are tackling the very difficult task of reviewing the new action picture Road House (2024), the remake of the beloved 80’s fight-fest classic. Reviews have been mixed to say the least, with some people loving it, and others absolutely despising it. We try to give as fair of a review as possible, sharing what we loved about it (*hint hint* a certain unhinged and absolutely maniacal Irish henchman) and what we were EXTREMELY annoyed by (*hint hint* a WEAK script and even WEAKER CG). Listen in as we dissect what the film got right, what it got terribly wrong, and what we can hope for if they do any sort of follow up.
