Cannon vs. Troma.
Nice! Need more forklift songs in reviews!
We finally get to see the Death Wish series. Will a Turkish version be in the future?
I think it's been covered already?
Hope you cover Death Wish 5 some day.
4:56- So THIS is what Perry White from the DC movie universe was up to in the early 80's.
9:06- Yeah, it's shit like that make me not take the Razzies as seriously as everyone else. I mean they had a personal hate against Sylvester Stallone. At least they recently apologized to him in the form of a "Redeemer Award" for his role in Creed.
At least Bronson's character finally gave up his vigilante ways in Death Wish 9.
Ahh, the Death Wish movies. The first one I found to be a somewhat revolting piece of right-winged, gun-rights propaganda. However, it was a well-made, well-acted, and quite effective one. So even if it deserves a fair bit of criticism for its messaging. Although, in the 70's, it was giving a lot of moviegoers what they wanted with some decree of catharsis over the rise of street crime.
Although Bronson seems increasingly like he does not care at all and is just picking up a paycheck.
Wonderful review, Bradley. This only goes to show that you should stick to pre-1995 films and avoid the post-2000 crazy religious movies.
The only exception to this should be The Postman film.
Hey, my professor edited this!
If you don't mind me asking, why did you go straight to Death Wish 2 instead of starting at the beginning?
Huh. Toshiro Mifune was in Inchon? Well. That's depressing. Not content with ruining one legendary actor's career, the Moonies went after two.
The original Death Wish is slow, but it's an origin story like Mad Max so I can excuse it (I might add his wife was NOT raped, she was beaten/kicked a few times by Brundlefly. Only the daughter was raped by jacked Michael Berryman while the "arteest" just spray painted the place). This one's ok but has no lasting power for me. The third however, I can't help but enjoy. It's got the lovely Deborah Raffin, Martin Balsam & the entire last act is a fun gun fight! Of course, if you don't like mindless violence & property damage in your action movies I'd advise you skip it. Four is forgettable save for small parts featuring Danny Trejo & Tom Everett & five I've never seen. More vigilante flicks, please!
I'm looking forward to this year's theme week (considering this is episode 241), and I cannot help but hope that it has something to do with horror sequels. I'd love it if you covered sequels to movies you have Snobbed previously. TCM2 by Cannon would be a given, as would be Elm Street 3. Perhaps Inferno by Argento or Hennenlotter's Basket Case 2. I'm sure there's others that don't tie into a specific date (Father's Day; Friday the 13th; etc.).
That said, I can't help but believe that it'll be something related to David A R White.
I hope Paul Feig remakes Death Wish with an all-female cast.
You're not funny, like, at all. That "joke" will become topical by 2017. Maybe you should come up with more original jokes next time.
Is this the beginning of a series on Cannon films? I dearly hope that Lifeforce is on the list!
Here's hoping for the Cannon / Tobe Hooper Trilogy. Films like Lifeforce and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2 would be perfect for your show. Though if you are going to review those films make sure you get the Scream Factory Blu-rays. I hear they're releasing a 2-Disc Collector's Edition set of TCM Part 2 this April.
Gotta love your Bronson voice, Brad..
Some of the older archived videos of 2009 were brought over from the youtube account before thecinemasnob.com was created, so please forgive the lesser video quality of such as some did not transfer well.
