    You did it again Goki ! 😛

  2. gooberzilla says:

    Um…did what? Made a podcast? I did do that.
    I think I also made Dave cry. Me sad. 😦

  3. Was this podcast a cross-pollination from Dave and Joel’s Fast Karate for the Gentleman podcast (May 29)? I think Frank Dux is getting too much heat from the inter-webs.

  4. front-beat says:

    More importantly . Will this podcast contain any tanks ?

  5. Jeff Tatarek says:

    Oh, don’t start that again! What a retread…

  6. front-beat says:

    Jeff If I were you I would tread very carefully.

  7. front-beat says:

    Any way , getting back into gear. Did anyone know that Bolo Yeung was like 50 years old when he did this movie ?

  8. Loknar64 says:

    I’m sure you’ve seen The Wizard (1989) and I hope you do that podcast soon. (Video game training montage FTW) It’s got Fred Savage who was also in The Princess Bride (Best Movie Ever Ever) and Beau Bridges who now or did play the latest general in charge of the SGC from Stargate SG-1/Atlantis.

  9. Daryl Surat says:

    As all the cool people who purchase New Getter Robo know, “Dux” is pronounced like the word “dukes,” not like “ducks.”

    For this insult, Frank Dux is going to find you and show you a trick or two, American.

  10. Pazuzu says:

    Starring future Academy Award Winner Forrest Whitaker, Bloodsport is an iconic 80’s action movie featuring the Muscles from Brussels, in arguably his best film. You’re still the night my friend. You’re still the night.

  11. Oh, right, like put up your dukes. Daryl, you Jackson? You don’t look like a Jackson.

  12. gooberzilla says:


    Bolo’s in pretty good shape for a guy in his fifties in this film.

    The Wizard will be covered eventually. We’re working with something of a backlog as well as a bunch of conflicting work schedules. But we’ll do it some time, I assure you!

    I still think “Frank DUCKS” sounds better than “Frank DUKES”. He should change the pronunciation of his name for my convenience.

    And yes, there was definitely some cross-polination going on. Dave and Joel briefly talked about Bloodsport, and then I remembered that Sean and I to re-record a podcast about Bloodsport. It’s a never-ending cycle of inspiration. Or, more accurately, a never-ending cycle of me stealing ideas from Dave and Joel. 😉

  13. Ivan says:

    My favorite thing about Bloodsport is how Jean Claude Van Dame ripped off his OWN movie just eight years later with “The Quest.” http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0117420/

    However, “The Quest” does have James Remar, which gives it all kinds of awesomeness.

  14. xenomouse says:

    I don’t think you need to worry about Frank Dux coming after you. If he was to go after anyone, it would be this guy (and serveral hundred more guys like him):

    From what i hear, he still may be gunning for mister van Damme.

  15. Keith says:

    I just watched this movie again last night thanks to Spike or Versus or G4 or one of those other nerdy channels. Now I want to own the soundtrack. Between that Kumite power pop anthem and the “sittin’ on the bus, montagin’ about the past” song, I’m ready to take on Bolo myself.

  16. Keith says:

    Jean Claude appears as a neon-unitard clad smilin’ dancer in BREAKIN’. However, the money scene is his first on-screen appearance, as a knee-squeezing gay kickboxer with a little sports car in the Belgian comedy FOREVER MONACO.

    And if you think I know too much about the early career of Jean-Claude Van Damme, you should hear how much I know about Reb Brown.

  17. imecem says:

    thanx very good is jean-claude van damme

  18. Radu says:

    It was a great movie at its time! I loved it as a child! 🙂
