It’s pretty badass to admit the mistakes of your past and do what you can to make amends, which is exactly what we do in this episode of the summer badass celebration. Join us as we remove bogus rules and re-evaluate our list with the new criteria in mind.
The summer badass celebration hauls on this week with Over the Top, the ludicrous 80s-soaked Sylvester Stallone movie that is one third competitive arm wrestling tournament and two thirds custody battle.
CHAMPION. CHARISMA. CHARACTER.
Find out what it takes for A.Ron and Jim to qualify you as a “badass”. Get a peek at the extremely niche and erudite system that turns ranking into an art. With an expectation of adding future badasses to the rankings, we might need to blow up our resin Mt. Rushmore from time to time. How badass would that be?
For our final round of debates, we synthesize the new list with the classic list to determine our Mt. Rushmore of Badasses as it stands right now. We plan to revisit the list in the years to come to keep it up to date. Check out the final podcast in the series for 2021.
What do you get when you pair up Steven Seagal with an apron, a playboy playmate, and the insanity of both Gary Busey and Tommy Lee Jones? You get the most notable entry in his badass resume, Under Siege. Is it enough to measure up to the likes of Arnold, Stallone, or JCVD? Check out the podcast to find out what we think.
Our original list was bursting at the seams when we stuffed in the amount of beef available during just the 80s and 90s. Well, since then a lot of old contenders have filled out their catalogs and new contenders have arisen, both men and women. So we’re retooling the list to add as much grade-A prime as we can handle in a single sitting. Of course, that’s not all of them but we’ll get there eventually. Check out the podcast to hear us debate the likes of Dave Bautista, Linda Hamilton, Gal Gadot, and many more.
KUMITE! KUMITE! For anyone who grew up in the 80s or 90s, Bloodsport is the best-known movie starring a man best-known for his incredibly limber legs, Jean-Claude Van Damme. Also starring Bolo Yeung as the man with the world’s largest pecs, it’s a movie that we both love and fear. Take a journey to Kowloon (seriously!) with us as we break down this classic badass movie from our childhoods.
A big, Arnold-sized shout out to epicmouthful for commissioning the Predator podcast. It might just be the perfect action movie, with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Carl Weathers muscling their way through the jungle, toting vehicle-caliber weapons, trying to kill the alien that is hunting them. What else do you really need to say? Well, we talk for over an hour about it so if there is anything else, we probably say it.

You got to ask yourself. What are you going to do? What the hell are you going to do when you’re staring down a pack of water crazed camels hell bent on sucking the vital fluids from your air conditioner, your toilet, your water pipes? When they come as an unstoppable lumpy force to destroy your very means of modern life? One hump or two, motherfucker? One hump or TWO!?
The fans have been clammoring (clammoring!) for Jim and A.Ron to sing a duet of the inimitable Garth Brook’s “Low Places” for over a year now. Actually, that’s a lie. But! You can still hear it if you stick around after the outro in this week’s episode! Leading up to the big finish, we give a bit of PSN update, I talk gearhead bullshit for a minute, we talk about the local board gaming scene, the mighty THOR not sucking nearly as much as we presupposed, and whether Chris Hemsworth could earn a spot in the badass pantheon.
