Far Cry

Arnie, Justin, and Stuart have shed a lot of tears while suffering through the 11 previous Uwe Boll video game adaptations, but the divisive director/producer can't hurt the podcasters anymore if they can survive Far Cry. Til Schweiger (Inglourious Basterds) stars as the mercenary boat skipper who takes on an island of mutants like in the original installment of the first-person shooter.  Can the aspiring action hero score any points with movie audiences ready to go Postal should Boll leave them Alone In The Dark one more time?  Listen Now!

The Omen III: The Final Conflict

Little devil Damien Thorne has grown up and joined the corporate workforce of the go-go 1980s, but he’s still all about the business of kickstarting the Apocalypse in The Final Conflict.

Bloodrayne: The Third Reich

Is Bloodrayne storming the Nazi death camps because she wants to take down The Third Reich and stop Hitler from becoming a vampire?  Or because the bisexual bloodsucker is kinky for more steam room threeways?  Director Uwe Boll wants to have it three ways too, as he reuses the sets and cast of this video game adaptation to simultaneously make a Bloodrayne "spoof" with obese asskicker Blubberella, and a Spielberg-trolling expose of Auschwitz gas chambers.  Don't worry, the Now Playing firing squad is equipped to take 'em all out.  Listen Now!

Bloodrayne: Deliverance

Almost everything has changed for Bloodrayne now that the daywalking vampire has left her European medieval castle, and traveled to the American frontier town of Deliverance, for a "high midnight" showdown with an undead Billy The Kid. Should gamers continue to feed their quarters into a series saddled with tax cheat Uwe Boll? Or does the much-maligned director prove to be better at shooting Spaghetti Westerns than Tolkien fantasies and zombie raves?  Find out if the Now Playing Arcade removes the bounty from Boll's head when you Listen Now!

The Omen (1976) {Bonus}

Before he brought comic book heroes to movie audiences with a big screen Superman, director Richard Donner birthed a Book of Revelations prophecy of Satan in his 1976 horror classic The Omen.  Legendary screen father Gregory Peck makes a literal deal with the devil after his fragile wife Lee Remick loses a baby.  Now his life is made a living Hell by Damien, a smirking toddler who threatens all of London with little more than a tricycle and pet Rottweiler.  All signs point to a great show, so Donate for Gold Level and lose your head with Now Playing.

Bloodrayne

Kristanna Loken trades her Terminatrix leathers for a sword and fangs to star as the half-human, half-vampire assassin Bloodrayne.
