Another blog I read besides Keith's is "Rupert Pupkin Speaks". He's doing a "Bad Movies We Love" series. A few today that peaked my interest:
STRIKE COMMANDO (1987)—Directed by Bruno Mattei. Stars Reb Brown, Christopher Connelly. This Italian-made action flick about the Vietnam War manages to copy RAMBO: FIRST BLOOD PART II almost scene-for-scene, but hilariously mucks it up. Reb Brown's dialogue ranges from "Bwahhhhhh!" to "Auuuuuughhhh!" and director Bruno Mattei's ridiculous action scenes consist of Brown shooting a huge gun—not necessarily at anyone, just shooting it—and Viet Cong falling down or miniature buildings blowing up. STRIKE COMMANDO might be even more cartoonish than RAMBO: FIRST BLOOD PART II, if that's possible
I can't say I have heard of that blog before but it does look interesting. As for the movies mentioned, I actually have The Stabilizer amongst my vast collection and sometime soon I'll try to watch it as I understand it's also quite insane. From Robowar I and others know that the combo of Mattei, Reb Brown and the jungle means it'll be awful but in a funny way. As for Wheels of Fire I haven't heard of it but I found a (NSFW, so I won't post it here) trailer and it looks like every low-budget post-apocalyptic film.
I've actually seen most of those clips before and laughed heartily at them. I do not know if I could stomach watching it in full.
Well I've taken my fair share of shots at the guy but on this day I'll give him his due. Van Damme's son Kris has worked hard, put his nose to the grindstone, and found himself cast in an upcoming film as a Mountie:
I like how he included the picture with a random list of 80's songs he likes, which include Simple Minds & A Flock of Seagulls.
Here's another PSYCHOTRONIC NETFLIX (vol. 7):
LIVE LIKE A COP, DIE LIKE A MAN has been on my radar for a while. And when I was a kid, THE FINAL COUNTDOWN was a fave. THE EVICTORS is a recent discovery. 70's low budget creepy goodness. Very curious about Roddy McDowall's TAM LIN.
I am also interested in Live Like A Cop, Die Like A Man; besides the A plus title, the plot sounds interesting and I put it in my queue early on as I was looking for movies in that genre. I should be seeing it real soon as who knows how many more months I'll subscribe to Netflix.
I am also upset it is not on a platform like Netflix or Hulu as everyone needs to see it. While I had heard plenty of details about the movie before I saw it, there were also plenty of details that I did not know about. The movie was so amazing it rocked my world; it was as if one day I ran into-say-Rachael Leigh Cook or Minka Kelly and they gave me a big kiss on the lips... then punched me in the face. I wish they still made movies quite like that... or I am able to find more obscure gems like that due to the recommendation of podcasts, blogs, or other sources.
