Chris Sims and Matt Wilson love movies. The kinds you would pick up on VHS on a Friday afternoon and have to watch that weekend, no matter how terrible it was. They also love to hate them. Movie Fighters is a celebration of that. Each episode, they watch a movie, recap it, and try to make sense of it. They often don't.

It's a new year and time for a new series on Movie Fighters! We're starting off 2016 with our long-awaited series of movies starring rappers, and we decided that a great kickoff would be the time-appropriate Ice Cube (and Xzibit) vehicle XXX: State of the Union! One of us liked this dumb, dumb movie with a overcomplicated plot more than the other. Try to guess which! You can watch along with us on Netflix, too!

We're finally opening up the Cannon Canon this time around, and we're starting off with what ultimately proved to be a bad choice, 1987's Going Bananas, starring Dom DeLuise, Jimmy Walker, a disturbingly adult-like kid and a man in a chimpanzee costume. The chimp talks, folks. It talks. It's awful. And it isn't the only terrible thing about this movie. There's so much more. You can watch along with us on YouTube (while it lasts) if you dare!

We've talked about it for a long time, so we're finally diving into 1990's Darkman, a strange, personality-filled 1990 superhero movie that shares a lot of the DNA of Tim Burton Batman but also has a whole lot of Raimi weirdness and a little bit of Dick Tracy built in, too. Not only does it have a Danny Elfman score, but it's also got Liam Neeson acting buck wild.

Rank #18: Episode 59: VS Romeo Must Die

Podcast cover

We did it, everyone: We managed to continue Rapper/Actor: Right Back Atacha and celebrate Valentine's Day all in one show! The movie that helped us accomplish that mission? The 2000 Jet Li/Aaliyah romance(?) film Romeo Must Die (which also features DMX). But is it really a romance film? Well, that's debateable. They don't even kiss, which was the basis for some controversy. What does happen is that Jet Li controls Aaliyah's body at one point to beat up a motorcycle lady. There's also a lot of stuff about football. You can watch along with us on Amazon or iTunes if you wish!
