Rerun: Martial Law (Cobra)

Due to Nick feeling under the weather this week, we're providing you guys one of our most popular episodes which is about the 1986 movie, Cobra! It stars Sylvester Stallone as a bad-boy/take-no-nonsense cop and is one of the most quintessential and surprisingly watchable Cannon films. It also is the result of Stallone leaving "Beverly Hills Cops" over creative differences! Check out some of our other vintage and strange movie/television discussions at https://themediaobscura.com/

73. The Joel Schumacher Aflac/Affleck Conundrum (Batman and Robin)

This week, to celebrate the recently passed Joel Schumacher, Team Obscura checks out and discusses 1997's "Batman and Robin," a colorful box office bomb with a cast that features George Clooney, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Uma Thurman. While hated at the time, this movie has found a bit of a cult following over the years and is honestly a lot of fun!

72. New Raekwon, Who Dis? (Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventures)

Woah! Team Obscura is chatting about the OTHER Bill and Ted TV adaptation to celebrate the trailer to Bill and Ted Face the Music! Todays episode is on the very short-lived 1992 sitcom adaptation of the 1991 Saturday cartoon adaptation of the first Bill and Ted movie, Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. It features none of the movie's cast, has little charm, and is all-around weak. Check out some of our other vintage and strange movie/television discussions at https://themediaobscura.com/

71. A Very Muppets Horror B-Movie (Bride of the Monster)

Team Obscura checks out Bride of the Monster, Ed Wood's 1955 tribute to classic horror movies! It stars Bela Lugosi, the vampire formerly known as Dracula, as a scientist that's essentially trying to create Captain America with the help of Lobo. He's a bit like Igor, but played by a Swedish Pro Wrestler. Check out some of our other vintage and strange movie/television discussions at https://themediaobscura.com/

70. Alternate Movies (Max Headroom)

Team Obscura checks out the 1987 pilot to the cult television series Max Headroom! They also talk about alternate versions of movies that they'd like to see, as well as David Lynch, Star Wars, Back to the Future, Twin Peaks and the Lord of the Rings! Nick also resites the story of the Max Headroom TV hacking incident and has a tantrum at one point or another (probably).

69. Wanna Cyber? (Lawnmower Man 2: Beyond Cyberspace) w/Jackson

Team Obscura (with special guest Jackson) come together to revisit the Lawnmower Man franchise, inspired by the Stephen King story, and find a convoluted and bloated story about cyberspace, virtual reality, and the internet... Oh, and it's a bad knock-off of the Matrix that inspired a pretty great episode of Community? Yeah, sure.

68. Robocop Lite (Cyborg Cop)

Released in 1993, Cyborg Cop follows Jack Ryan on a mission to find out what happened to his DEA agent brother on a mission in the Caribbean. Along the way, he fights cyborgs and cops, which only sorta explains why this movie is called Cyborg Cop. We can only assume that the other reason is that the name Robocop was already taken and that this movie wanted to ride on the coat-tails of the third installment in that series.

67. Reaganomics (Soul Man)

... Oh man. Oh man. Oh man. This is... Wow. This is... a thing? Team Obscura checks out the unnecessarily tone deaf 1986 teen comedy "Soul Man," a story about a student donning blackface in order to defraud Harvard out of a minority scholarship. It's... well, it's terrible. PodLink: https://pod.link/themediaobscura
