Three years after the release of The Karate Kid Part II, Daniel LaRusso and Mr. Miyagi were back in California, and in theaters with the aptly named The Karate Kid Part III. Now Daniel must defend his Karate title against "Karate's Bad Boy" Mike Barnes, and when Mr. Miyagi refuses to help him train Daniel turns to toxic waste dumper Terry Silver for help. With a subplot involving Mr. Miyagi's Little Trees, this film has been generally panned by critics. But is this movie as bad as everyone remembers? Listen in and find out!

In 1984 The Karate Kid crane-kicked the box office, and it didn't take Mr. Miyagi to realize a sequel would be fast-tracked. Released in the summer of 1986, The Karate Kid Part II took Daniel LaRusso from California to Okinawa, Mr. Miyagi faces his former rival Sato, and Peter Cetera delivers a theme song that still monopolizes light-rock radio the world over. The sequel grossed even more than the original, but does that make The Karate Kid Part II the better film? Listen in and find out!

Warning: This podcast deals with subject matter that will be objectionable to the vast majority of listeners. No one under the age of 18 should listen, and those over the age of 18 should listen with caution. It's the underground horror hit of the year--The Human Centipede. Playing only at midnight showings in select theaters as well as On Demand, this film's content promises to be one of the raunchiest horror films ever. With the tagline "100% Medically Accurate" you know you're in for something more than your standard slasher, but how extreme is this film and, more to the point, is it any good? Stuart, Arnie, and Marjorie have watched this film and review every gross detail in this podcast.

Did you want to take Karate lessons in 1984? If so, you weren't alone! When The Karate Kid first came out it was a smash hit, earning an Oscar nomination for Pat Morita and entering "Wax on, Wax off" into the cultural lexicon of movie phrases. Now, with this classic story being reinterpreted for modern audiences with this summer's remake starring Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith, we at Now Playing will "wax on" with our Karate Kid retrospective series. Is this first installment worth the legacy? Listen in and find out!

Nine, Ten, Freddy's back in theaters again--and Now Playing is back also with the ultimate review in our Nightmare on Elm Street retrospective series as we review the brand new Nightmare on Elm Street movie. Gone are Robert Englund and Wes Craven, replaced by Jackie Earl Haley and Samuel Bayer, bringing a new, darker Freddy to a new generation of horror lovers. Join Stuart, Arnie, and Brock as they review this film, giving a review from the point of view of a horror fan, a Freddy fan, and a newbie to horror films. We compare the new Nightmare on Elm Street to the original, and wrap up our entire Nightmare on Elm Street reflecting on the series as a whole, Freddy's place in the pantheon of horror icons, and comparing how the new Nightmare reboot compares to other recent horror reboots. Does Jackie Earl Haley give audiences the dangerous, evil Freddy they'd always dreamed of? Listen to find out!
