Ministry of Vengeance (1989)

Here’s another remnant left to us action fans from the VHS era starring a former TV heartthrob and a parcel of well known faces who were still working and looking […]

Hawk the Slayer (1980)

When given the opportunity to spotlight a film “that’s so bad it’s good” as part of a blogathon kindly put together by Rebecca of Taking Up Room, I immediately thought […]

Firewalker (1986)

The long shadow of Indiana Jones was still in vogue by the time this J. Lee Thompson effort hit the big screen. Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus who fronted Cannon […]

The Lightship (1985)

It wasn’t until I was no longer a youngster that I came around to truly appreciating the magic of Robert Duvall on screen. That in part is probably due to […]

Hangar 18 (1980)

We’re Back! The Video Store Action Heroes have once again turned the clock back to simpler times when we’d all rush over to the local video retailer and return home […]

Nightkill (1980)

Thirty-eight years is a long time. That’s how long I’ve gone between viewings of this Ted Post directed thriller that made it’s television debut in December of 1980 after what […]

Leading man Stuart Whitman is once again enlisted by writer/director Rene Cardona Jr. to star in this exploitation fare that comes in the wake of the incredible box office dollars […]

Uncommon Valor (1983)

Well before Chuck Norris’ Braddock and Sly Stallone’s Rambo decided to go back to Vietnam and rescue the men left behind in POW camps ten years after the United States […]

Stagecoach (1986)

There’s no need to start here with a big negative by pointing out this is a variation/remake of the 1939 John Ford/John Wayne classic. Let’s be positive and say it’s […]

Nosferatu in Venice (1988)

aka … Nosferatu a Venezia, aka … Prince of The Night, aka Vampire In Venice and who knows how many other vampire themed titles. Yes I’ve seen Murnau’s 1922 silent […]

Oh! Heavenly Dog (1980)

Brando’s Pick of the Month If I didn’t know any better, Brando and I tuned in to watch Fletch 3. But then again Chevy Chase never starred in a third […]

Dreyfuss & Estevez : A Pair of Stakeouts

In 1987 director John Badham unleashed this winning buddy/buddy cop film that teamed an unlikely pair of actors who for me offered up genuine screen chemistry. Richard Dreyfuss and Emilio […]
