Revenge is on the mind of The Last Row Podcast, as Drew and Badway analyze the 1991 Steven Seagal cult classic, Out For Justice. The guys are talkin’ Seagal’s offensive Italian/New York accent while disrespectfully wearing his grandpa’s military attire, comparing crack induced rage to Jim Carrey’s “Mask”, why documenting your own adultery with a drug lord’s girlfriend is not a great idea, and the logistic difficulties of using polaroid cameras in the bedroom. Also, Seagal beats up a bunch of scumbags in a basement bar.
Drew and Badway dive back into their 90s nostalgia box once again, this time covering the 1992 childhood favorite, 3 Ninjas. Essential questions include: Should suburban kids be trained to be ninjas? Exactly how bad of a parent AND FBI agent is their father? Is Tum-Tum an acceptable karate nickname? Is the grandpa even GOOD at karate, or is he just a good teacher? Is it dishonorable to beat someone up while they are on the toilet? To wrap things up, the guys put Hugo “Schneider” Snyder through the villain scale, and Badway doubles down on his claim that kids under 12 can’t possibly beat him up, while Drew has his doubts.
The Last Row Podcast delves deep into the underground fight scene to bring you the lowdown on the 1988 Jean-Claude Van Damme classic, Bloodsport. When they aren’t butchering the character names of the film, Drew and Badway discuss the art of the montage, dramatic pauses, splits, and the questionable logic of gambling a woman’s safety on a magic trick. Other questions that are addressed: How does one enter the Kumite? Is Chong Li really a bad guy? Is the real life Frank Dux full of crap? The guys wrap up the episode by playing a game of “Fantasy Kumite,” plugging in their favorite classic characters into the tournament.
