Zombie Take-Out Episode 329: A Man and His MacGuffin

Cherry 2000 Scotto and Uncle John return from their vacation with the long-awaited conclusion to their 2000 two-parter. A film that features a great supporting cast and mixes Mad Max with '50s kitsch and the inimitable acting prowess of Melanie Griffith. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1987, Cherry 2000. Did the romantic subplot fit the movie? Which now famous actor has a cameo in it? Did the plane have a propeller? What can't you do with a toaster oven?

Zombie Take-Out Episode 328: Based on a Cartoon by Hanna–Barbera

Death Race 2000 Scotto and Uncle John are joined by special guest Jen Miller to discuss a movie that combines the dystopia of Rollerball, shock and gore aesthetics of Troma, the quality control of Roger Corman and the plot of Hanna–Barbera's Wacky Racers. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1975, Death Race 2000. Should it have had more gore? Was Mrs. Pander's name too on the nose? Was it the first dystopian film? Do Americans love fascists? Can a k-turn be dramatic? Three, sir.

Zombie Take-Out Episode 327: A Fish Out of Water Story

Gyo: Tokyo Fish Attack Scotto and Uncle John return to the world of anime with thoroughly weird film that truly sums up WTF, Japan. A film about walking fish who attack Japan on insect-like, mechanical legs, the horrible smell that accompanies them, the mad scientist who tries to 'stop' them and pipes that go into really unfortunately places. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 2012, Gyo: Tokyo Fish Attack. Did it influence Sharknado? Were too many changes made to the source material? What was the point of the circus? What's that smell?

Zombie Take-Out Episode 326: Bill and Freejack's Bogus Journey

Johnny Mnemonic Scotto and Uncle John review their first Keanu Reeves movie, a '90s cyberpunk film that revels in the cliches of both the era and the genre and features appearances from two "actors" who are far better known for their music. This week on Zombie Take-Out, from 1995, Johnny Mnemonic. Is it the A Bridge Too Far of bad acting? Is Keanu the William Shatner of his generation? Was the ending too bizarre? Did the chainmail shirt pinch? No whoa?

Zombie Take-Out Episode 325: Zombienado

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter Scotto and Uncle John return, after a year and a half, to one of the most infamous franchises in both cinematic and video game history to have a very similar conversation to the last time they discussed one of these movies. Shouldn't they have learned by now? This week on Zombie Take-Out, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. Is it really the last movie of the series? Could it possibly be boring? Shouldn't Scotto know better by now than to expect a Resident Evil movie to be good?
