Chris, who loved seeing the film in theaters as a child, reevaluates his stance on the movie upon this viewing. And Sam can't stop making observations about Kevin Costner's hair implants.

Geek Out Commentary: Megaforce

The inaugural month of Geek Out commentaries continues with another childhood cinematic CLASSIC, MegaForce! Part Star Wars, part Evel Knieval, and with more wardrobe changes than a Cher concert, this prime piece of 1980s filmmaking has Barry Bostwick of Rocky Horror Picture Show fame lead a phantom team of super elite biker soldiers saving the day, one explosion-filled desert fight at a time. For Chris and Jake, this is a first time viewing, for Sam, its a reminder that the good guys always win, even in the 80s!
