Triple (Film) Threat!

three

Don’t drink the water, because Three the Hard Way is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film,

featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell: Suffering from spotty direction and a thin plot, Three the Hard Way succeeds purely on the charisma of its lead actors and the stunt work of the legendary Hal Needham.

You Can’t Hit Me With Your Slow Bullets.

Sharpen up your katana, because Versus is the Greatest Movie EVER!

featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting and Daryl Surat of AnimeWorldOrder.

Review in a Nutshell: Frenetic, funny, and action-packed, Versus is a genre-bending action / horror / Yakuza picture with a mystic twist. It’s an independent movie with a small budget and a big heart.

Hold onto your skulls, because Predator 2 is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean ‘Hollywood’ Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell: Brash, crude, and confrontational, Predator 2 is nonetheless a film worth revisiting over and over again. While the plot and pacing aren’t as tight as the original film, the movie is carried by the eccentric performances of its cast and the wonderful special effects by Stan Winston and company.

Paul Was Once a Degenerate Kung Fu Hipster…

Hold on to your nunchucks, because Enter the Dragon is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell:  A genre-blending movie that reshaped the cinematic landscape, Enter the Dragon is the film that made Bruce Lee a legend.  While parts of it may seem hokey today, the Enter the Dragon remains consistently entertaining nearly four decades after its original release.

Magnificent Martial Violence!

Sharpen your machetes, because The Raid: Redemption is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film,

featuring guest hosts Daryl Surat of AnimeWorldOrder and Rachel Pandich, author of Aspire.

Review in a Nutshell:  An Indonesian martial arts movie written and directed by a Welsh man, The Raid: Redemption is not just a typical action movie.  It blends drama and suspense with some of the most breath-taking and technically accomplished fight choreography in recent cinema history to create a tight, tense, thoroughly engrossing experience.

Good-bye, Legacy.

Hold onto your golden tickets, because Last Action Hero is (probably not) the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring shameless Last Action Hero apologist, Sean ‘Hollywood’ Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell:  Part meta-narrative.  Part satire of violent Eighties action movies.  Part heart-warming children’s film.  Last Action Hero is a film with an identity crisis.

Charles Bronson Wins the War on Drugs

Beware of exploding wine bottles, because Death Wish 4: The Crackdown is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film,

featuring Daryl Surat of AnimeWorldOrder and Olie aka “InvidNinja”. from the Welcome to the Brain Palace podcast.

Review in a Nutshell:  Few action movies encapsulate the anti-drug anxieties of the Eighties quite like Death Wish 4: The Crackdown, which also features roller skating arcades, fish-smuggling, and multiple exploding villains.

World’s Smuggest Indian?

Call in the cavalry, because Navajo Joe is the Greatest Movie EVER!

(NOTE:  The audio quality suffers a bit in this one.  I just moved and some switches got flipped, and the Skype conference was plagued with technical difficulties.  Apologies.)

Review in a Nutshell:  Navajo Joe puts the “spa” in Spaghetti Western.  Replete with inconsistent Spanish geography and Italian banditos, it’s the film Burt Reynolds wishes everyone would forget.

Ax Dancing, Sexy Robots, Rambo, Red Sonja?

Remember to eat your fruit and vegetables, because Cobra is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring guest host Daryl Surat of AnimeWorldOrder.

Review in a Nutshell:  There are some movies that define an era, embedding themselves in the fabric of popular media and influencing later films for decades to come.  And there are films like Cobra, which encapsulate the craziest elements of an entire period in film and then are promptly, tragically forgotten.

This movie contains:

Killer Nerds?

Practical Solutions in Cutlery.

Fast Food Atrocities.

Sexy Robots?

FINAL THOUGHT:

Behold, the infamous music video montage!

Robot Rumble in the Jungle

Set up your hilarious jungle booby-traps, because Solo is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.

Review in a Nutshell:  Solo may have a cliche premise (“creating the ultimate super-soldier”), but the movie is well-acted and well-executed.  It’s got great stunts, solid special effects, and an interesting setting, too.  Also, Adrien Brody!?!
