Men in Black 2 (2002)

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss Men in Black 2. 

Flipping the original film's concept, Agent J (Will Smith) has to bring Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) out of retirement to battle Serleena (Laura Flynn Boyle) and Scrad (Johnny Knoxville).

Special effects are an improvement over the original, but the main thrust of the story takes ages to get started. There are too many callbacks to the original. A horrid Michael Jackson cameo feels more like a favor than anything else.

Leroy & Stitch (2006)

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss Leroy & Stitch. 

Leroy & Stitch is notable for its focus on action. A wrap-up of sorts for the animated series, this flick has some returning villains and introduces Leroy, a version of Stitch that's all evil and all red. 

A finale in a stadium featuring the numerous experiments leading up to Stitch has a fun Pokemon Stadium quality to the whole affair, but apart from a notable somber Elvis cover is mostly forgettable. Fourth time is not the charm.

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch. 

A lower key tale than the prior entry, Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch retreads the plot of the first film to some degree. Stitch's good and evil balance is out of wack. Stitch feels guilt and anxiety over this, and wants to leave Earth before he destroys those that he loves. It all wraps up in an ending that cops out at the last moment. 

Not the best direct to video Disney sequel, but certainly not the worse. This one has its heart in the right place.

Men in Black (1997)

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss Men in Black. Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) recruits Agent J (Will Smith) to battle the dangerous alien Bug (Vincent D'Onofrio).

Loosely based on a short-lived comic book series from Aircel Comics, Men in Black combines humor, science-fiction, and a bit of horror into slick summer entertainment. Part of what makes this original film work so well is the simplicity of the story. Director Barry Sonnenfeld moves things along at a quick pace. Spawned a hit titular single by Will Smith featuring dancing aliens.

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss Highlander: The Source. Duncan MacLeod (Adrian Paul) searches for the source of immortality. 

Meant to be the start of a new trilogy, Highlander: The Source feels like it was shot in a basement with awful special effects to boot. An embarrassment to the franchise, Highlander: The Source has little to recommend it other than an unintentionally funny end credits song.

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss Highlander: Endgame. Connor MacLeod (Christopher Lambert) and Duncan MacLeod (Adrian Paul) team up to battle Jacob Kell (Bruce Payne). 

A follow-up to the long-running TV show, Highlander: Endgame has a smaller scope than the sequels up to this point. Locales are often drab, although there are some fun martial arts sequences and Bruce Payne lays on the requisite ham as the villain. There is a nice return to some of the romance of the first movie, but Highlander: Endgame does a poor job explaining how the rich history of the TV show ties into everything.

Fred Willard

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss the career of the late Fred Willard.

Fred Willard started honing his comedy chops with Vic Grecco in Greenwich Village in the late 1950s. After joining The Second City in Chicago, he founded the comedy troupe Ace Trucking Company which led to dozens of gigs on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. Aside from his hundreds of appearances on TV shows over the years ranging from Laverne & Shirley to Murphy Brown and Wizards of Waverly Place, Willard is perhaps best known for his quirky roles in the mockumentary films of Christopher Guest: Waiting for Guffman, Best in Show, A Mighty Wind, and For Your Consideration. He also had a robust voice-over career contributing is wry humor to G.I. Joe: Renegades, King of the Hill, and The Boondocks. 

Fred Willard's final feature film roles were Have a Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics and The Bobby Roberts Project. His last recurring roles TV series regular role were Modern Family and Space Force. He will be missed.

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, William Thrasher, and special guest Brock Wilbur (co-author of Postal from Boss Fight Books) discuss Mission Asteroid, the third adventure game released by Sierra under their original name On-Line Systems.

Meant to be a shorter and cheaper adventure game aimed at new players, Mission Asteroid has a science-fiction theme. An asteroid is going to smash into Earth, and you have to blast off into space, set off explosives to change the asteroid's course, and save your home planet once and for all! The parser and puzzles are as obtuse as ever, but the shorter length allows for a more focused game than the overstuffed Wizard and the Princess.

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss Highlander III: The Final Dimension. Outside of the US, this was released as Highlander III: The Sorcerer. Connor MacLeod (Christopher Lambert) finds Kane (Mario Van Peebles), another evil Immortal itching to have a sword fight. 

A sort of remake of the original, Highlander III sends Connor back to New York City, gives him an adopted son John (Gabriel Kakon), and outright ignores the events of Highlander 2. While things feels more like a Highlander movie than the second one, Highlander III really just goes through the motions. Mario Van Peebles is fun hamming it up as Kane and Mako Iwamatsu is a solid mentor as Nakano, but there's nothing new or interesting here. This is a rather bland film.
