Robot Jox (1990)

This week on Alcohollywood, we crash and burn with guest Derek as we talk about 1990’s cult hit Robot Jox, directed by Stuart Gordon! In the far flung future, the Cold War still rages, but now territorial disputes are settled by gladiatorial robot fights. Achilles (Gary Graham) our illiterate hero, squares off against Alexander (Paul Koslo) for the territory of Alaska. Luckily, he is helped by his genetically engineered love interest Athena (Anne-Marie Johnson) and the flamboyant Tex Conway (Michael Alldredge). Along the way, we get to see wonderfully cheesy acting, delightful stop-motion robot fights and so much more. Check out our review and drinking game below!
