Before Kurt Thomas started a state-of-the-art gymnastics training facility located inside the Dr. Pepper StarCenter, he did his country a great service. He saved the country from the terror of the Soviet Union by defeating a horde of bearded men and ninjas, and he made a movie about it.

And after Matt Singer and Chris Moreno watched it about 30 times each, they made a commentary track for it.

Runtime: 90 minutes
Genre: Action
Stars: Kurt Thomas, Tetchie Agbayani, Richard Norton

Ha! GYMKATA! I love it!

Ever consider doing one for SILENT RAGE? In episode #17 of our podcast we cover a ton of "guilty pleasure" movies...maybe one or more are good for skewering.

Either way, love what you guys are doing and I'll plug you on our show.
