Movie of the Day – Flash Gordon

FLASH, A-AH, SAVIOR OF THE UNIVERSE!!!!!

I danced around wanting to write about this movie and after a string of bad good movies, I decided that it’s time to give Flash Gordon its due.  The 1980’s American-British film production is one of the best campy science fiction movies around.  It’s flashy, gaudy, stupidly fun, an amazing movie and one of the best soundtracks ever.  I am getting all tingly talking about it so lets jump in.  FLASH, A-AH!!!!!!

Movie of the Day – ThanksKilling

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!  Seriously, how the hell could I not post this as today’s movie of the day.  Just, I mean, come on guys.  Look I could have gone with a dozen different movies like Pieces of April or Planes, Trains and Automobiles, but I wanted to do something absurd that I just have to have this as the movie of the day.  I never know about this movie until I saw it on Netflix under the holiday’s category it brought up one evening and I was hooked.  I watched it, it’s vile, ridiculous, absurd, juvenile but damn if it wasn’t entertaining.

It’s a cult classic through and through.  It’s is about as low budget as a movie can get with only a few thousand dollars to its name and memorable to boot.  So sit back and relax on this auspicious day and enjoy some ThanksKilling.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Movie of the Day – Street Fighter

Alright seriously, what kid in the early 90’s wasn’t excited when they found out that Hollywood was going to turn the now iconic arcade fighting game, Street Fighter, into a major motion picture?  Don’t lie cause you were all excited for this ultimate in cinematic enjoyment.  How pumped were that the “Muscles from Brussels” Jean-Claude Van Damme was going to be high-kicking his way on to the big screen as Guile?  You are lying to your past kid self if you  weren’t excited that the dude from Hard Target, Timecop, Bloodsport, Lionheart, Double Impact and Universal Soldier was going to be playing the best character in a fighting game ever (fuck you and your love of Ryu or Ken).  The best kicker of this cinematic masterpiece was that it was being directed by Steven E. de Souza, who written some of my favorite action movies of all time (Die Hard and Die Hard 2, Running Man, and Commando).  This movie blew my mind back when I was 10, but now looking back on it as a man in his mid-twenties, it fucking sucks.  My nostalgia and childhood feels like it was taken out back to an alley and beaten mercilessly.
