Well this month is completely dedicated to movies released that are trying to ride the coat-tails of those big Summer hits. This week Cheats picks the movies and we go through Android Cop as well as Dead 7.

The Sandlot | Major League – Hello everyone! Welcome to our last summer edition of Motion Picture Meltdown! We finish out the summer months by going through a couple movies about America’s favorite summer past-time, baseball! This episode, Dehart, Phil, Cheats and myself take on a couple of classic baseball flicks by roasting through Major League as well as The Sandlot. In this episode, we figure out that Dehart’s favorite thing to do outside as a kid was be The Predator, we turn The Sandlot into a David Fincher movie, and we can’t figure out why everyone is so happy at the end of Major League. Enjoy!

This week we dive into a couple of underrated 80’s slasher flicks in Sleepaway Camp and possibly one of the best slashers of all time, The Burning. In this episode, you’ll hear us debate over the best weapon found in a garden shed, you’ll hear Philip rage about his tiredness of seeing buttholes in movies, and you’ll hear me make the bold claim that The Burning is better than any of the Jason movies. Enjoy!

In this episode, you’ll hear us all debate on why surfers are stereotyped as morons, you’ll hear Philip rage hardcore about how much he hates Point Break, and you’ll hear Dehart talk about how Patrick Swayze “Mariokarts” someone in Point Break.
