Harlo, Maki, Chuck, and B.J. sit down and watch a so-called 'Bad Movie.' Then they discuss and rate said movie on a sliding scale: 1 to 5 'Jox' after Robot Jox (1990) (which they heavily reference throughout the episodes as one of their favorite flicks) if it's a Good/Bad movie meaning a bad movie that is fun to watch. If it’s a Bad/Bad movie it gets a sliding scale rating of 1 to 5 ‘Bags,' short for ‘Douchebags,’ after the movie Twilight (2008) (‘nuff said).
I found this podcast while hunting for something movie related to listen to. Having a soft spot for 'Cinema d’ Garbage’ I decided to give the boys a listen. Soon, I was bingeing on episodes back to back. Ignoring my daily routine in order to search out and watch these abominations of film and join in on the adventure. Action being their bread and butter for many of the flicks the B.M.F.er’s cover (Hey, we have the same letters. Just noticed), they tend to pepper in the occasional horror, sci-fi, and (God help them) animaaaaytion. That is not a typo, the animation themed episodes are classic and must be pronounced that way (it will all make sense).
The hosts bring that ‘old buddy’ feeling to the listeners with their natural banter which the fellas bandy about with ease. Never forced or fake, they welcome the audience into their world and make you feel like you’re in on the jokes. Split into halves, the show closes with a brief discussion of random movies, shows or general nonsense that’s always entertaining. By the way, audience participation is greatly encouraged. Listeners are asked to voice their opinions, recommend a movie or just leave a message on the Garfield Phone (the number is 1-910-5JOX-BMF. And yes, it’s literally an old school Garfield Phone). There is not much else I can say about the Bad Movie Fiends other than to get your loose cannon ass over to their site and check 'em out for yourself. Crash and burn! (like I said, it will all make sense) M.F.B. out!
