Here comes another reboot, folks! This time around it’s the 1989 Patrick Swayze-starring action flick, Roadhouse. But, as much as Hollywood likes their reboots these days, they’ve decided to make this one a bit different. Instead of bringing on the next big dude that can kick ass and take names, they’re going with a female lead to replace Swayze’s bouncer role. And the lady of choice is none-other-than ass-kicking MMA fighter, Ronda Rousey. (more…)
This time on the all new lemon scented RadioBastard podcast hour of power, Jeremy and Jason get wrapped up in the timeless internet sensation known as #DressGate. Also, there’s some hot llama action, a plot to steal Winston Churchill‘s vampire blood and a hot Latin body for Jason, 47 uses for chicken skin, and DuckTales! Wooo… Wha?
You seem like you could use some specifics… (more…)
In brightest day, in blackest night, No evil shall escape our sight. Let those who worship evil’s might, beware our power, The Bastardcast’s light!!!
In this episode, Jason is growing out an Alan Moore beard while ceaselessly watching Mohawk Man and the Curiosity Crusade and Jeremy is trying to advance his career as a Hollywood player, forcing Jason to act out a scene with him from Karl Welzein’s un-sold script for Roadhouse 2012: Pain Still Don’t Hurt.
The boys (because these are not men!) also chat about the return of President Camacho, Scully and Mulder, the earnings potential of Annie’s Boobs, and Jason unveils an excerpt from his interview with Eddie Izzard, who talks about why he took the role of Grandpa in the Munsters remake, Mockingbird Lane.
In the MAIN EVENT, Jason and Jeremy take on Joss Whedon’s indentured servitude with Marvel, Ben Affleck’s flirtation with DC, and the chances that a greater push toward television by Marvel and DC could backfire and over-expose comic book heroes.
Then, in DIRTY NERDY SECRETS Jeremy reveals that he is afraid of being probed on a UFO by a Sasquatch, and Jason tells us why all kids who own or have owned a Power Wheels are fucking douche bags, but that there is a sadness to those who, like himself, owned a NES Powerglove.
All of that and the Ghost of Andy Rooney, on this week’s Bastardcast.
As Hollywood systematically remakes each and every movie from the 80s its nice to see you can get a slice of action on the cheap. Karl Welzein, President and CEO of Bad Boy City Entertainment, has put his script for a Roadhouse remake up for sale on Craigslist. As Welzien put it ‘you’ll feast your eyes on a taste of the gold‘ and it is ‘the film America’s been cravin’ for.’
Not sold yet? How about this, he also inexplicably states it will star restaurateur, television personality, and game show host Guy Fieri! PLUS, Welzien will also co-star in the movie to help you keep costs low.
How can this fail?
If you’re still not sold you can check out an excerpt from the opening scene of Roadhouse 2012: Pain Still Don’t Hurt after the jump.
This thought comes from a little snippet buried in an article over at playboy and from Kotaku, who found it. I will start with the fact that this movie was classic 80’s cheese, while good, it just reminds me too much of going out to eat with my parents and the stupid crap they would wear. There are some good points about this possibly being a video game as mentioned over at Kotaku, but there are also a few bad points I would like to add.
