Fielding a Championship Team

Like any sport there’s always a movie out there from the past or even one in current production built around it because sports movies offer up plenty of drama and […]

The Slams (1973)

Ex-member of The Dirty Dozen and foot ball hall of famer, Jim Brown had a good run of flicks once the 1970’s came along turning the word blaxploitation into a […]

C.C. & Company (1970)

Jumping or perhaps riding in to the cinema of the motorcycle gang is footballer Joe Namath with the help of Roger Smith who wrote and produced this typical story as […]

Movie Posters from the Burt Reynolds Era

Yes I’ve featured Burt Reynolds a number of times here since starting Mike’s Take. I had great fun coming up with the Burt Reynolds Starter Kit for those younger readers […]

Rio Conchos (1964)

One could argue that this western lacks an “A” list Movie Star, but in my world Richard Boone is a whole lot more fun to watch then plenty of those […]

Ice Station Zebra (1968)

Cue the words “fathoms” “sonar” and “attention all hands.” If you guessed we’re in for a submarine journey, you guessed right. Once again John Sturges (The Great Escape) directs a […]

The Burt Reynolds Starter Kit

On a suggestion from a friend I got a good chuckle so I have borrowed the heading and idea for this nod to Mr. Reynolds. I was there when Burt’s […]

Bo Svenson is once again cast as Buford Pusser in the third film of the seventies trilogy that sees a Tennessee lawman fight for justice while at the same time […]

I Escaped From Devil’s Island (1973)

With the success of the Steve McQueen film Papillon it should be expected that Roger Corman and brother Gene would put out a low budget knock off to capitalize on […]

Guns of the Magnificent Seven (1969)

Where Yul Brynner leaves off, George Kennedy takes over as the head gunslinger Chris in the third of four films released under the series banner. The original is an acknowledged […]

The Dirty Dozen (1967)

For the on line celebration of movies released during the year of 1967 I have selected the WW2 classic from MGM studios. I had intended to do something on Lee […]

The Split (1968)

Seemingly modeled after Kubrick’s The Killing this film admittedly isn’t half as good. Having said that, any film where you can sit back and watch a cast including Jim Brown, […]

One Down, Two to Go (1982)

Anytime I can sit back and watch Fred Williamson and Jim Brown act tough, count me in. Now add in Richard Roundtree and Jim Kelly and you would think it […]
