Mr. Mendo teams up with the Film Renegado, master of Mexican cinema, to review Atlético San Pancho, AKA Never Too Young to Dream, a Bad News Bears-style tribute to peewee soccer. In this movie, a ragtag group of kids has the seemingly impossible dream to win the big soccer championship. Will they succeed? Have you seen a sports movie before?
An Interview with Lloyd Kaufman, President of Troma Entertainment
“Yes sir, Lloyd’s come a long way from his days as a location executive, to the head of the longest running independent movie company in America. Troma’s movies cover almost every subject matter, with lots of sex and violence thrown in, all for budgets that wouldn’t buy lunch in most studios.”Apocalypto (2006)
In Mexico during the decline of Mayan civilization, a hunter (Rudy Youngblood) escapes from bad guys who capture his tribe for human sacrifice. He's got to rescue his wife and son before rain fills the well where he hid them, along the way getting tortured nearly as much as Jesus in Mel's previous movie.Spam (2008)
Don't worry, this video isn't spam. Neither is the movie, as far as the Renegado can tell...Jar Jar, Ruby Rhod, and the legacy of Urkel
“I honestly can’t recall a single example of someone claiming an annoying character ‘ruined the movie’ when there wasn’t a non-white actor playing the role. ”Pink Lady's Great Motion Picture (1978) / Japanese Spider-Man (1978)
Mr. Mendo brings us twice the insanity from 1978 Japan: First up, it's the one and only movie starring singing duo Pink Lady, where they help an alien creature escape the circus, and teleport back to the Old West. After that, it's the Japanese Spider-Man, who gets his powers from a guy from the planet Spider, along with his very own giant robot sidekick!Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS / Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom (1975)
“Starting things off is 1975’s Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS, an entry in the inexplicably popular Nazi exploitation genre. Ilsa, commandant of a POW camp, conducts gruesome experiments on women to prove their superiority to men, while castrating the men who can’t keep up with her in the sack. At the top of the bill is Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom, also from 1975, the lighthearted tale of Italian fascists who kidnap a group of teenage boys and girls and degrade them for—you guessed it—120 days.”
