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 […]

Gary Busey … A Man of Action

Long before Gary Busey became a media punchline he was a pretty damned good actor. Back in the early 1970’s he apprenticed opposite some well known actors like Robert Ryan […]

The Nesting (1981)

Just stop and imagine how many bizarre movies you’re likely to come across if you’ve included seeing every John Carradine appearance on your personal bucket list. I mean everything. Not […]

Silent Rage (1982)

Columbia pictures backed this Chuck Norris flick that takes parts of various genres and balls them up together and believe it or not, makes it work. That’s mainly due to […]

Educating Rita (1983)

When an on line celebration of Michael Caine films for his 85th birthday on March 14th, 2018 was put forth, it gave me the opportunity to go though my library […]

A Gathering of Old Men (1987)

If you’ve followed the trajectory of Richard Widmark’s film career you may find it hard not to pause and recall his portrait of a terrifying bigot from the 1950 film, […]

Cabo Blanco (1980)

I like to refer to this movie as “the lost Charles Bronson film.” The first reason I can come up with is that wayyyy back when I was a kid […]

Mother Lode (1982)

Thanks to a couple of movie crazed bloggers living in Canada, Kristina of Speakeasy and Ruth of Silver Screenings, there exists the O’Canada Blogathon which celebrates all sorts of film related topics that […]

Stick (1985)

Burt Reynolds meets Elmore Leonard adds up to mixed results in this action oriented flick that saw Burt once again do double duty taking up the directing chores as well. Not surprisingly […]

The Exterminator (1980)

You want gritty? A 1970’s feel as we rang in the 80’s. A guilty pornographic look by way of 42nd street? Then this Death Wish meets Taxi Driver, Paul Kersey or […]
