Berry Gordy’s Last Dragon is a 1985 film produced by Berry Gordy of Motown Records, starring Taimak, Vanity, Julius J Carry III, Chris Murney, Keshia Knight Pulliam (small cameo) and Faith Prince.
This hyper masculine rock & roll dystopian, martial arts blood bath would probably serve you best as a double feature with The Story of Rikki-Oh (live action). Now that would be one hell of a date night. I mean it and wouldn’t lead you astray.
It’s been a fresh 24 hours since I saw Blade Runner 2049 at the iMAX theater in New York City. Probably the last film I’ll see in New York City for a very long time and thirty-five years since the masterpiece that is Ridley Scott’s original Blade Runner film premiered in theaters.
In my opinion the super-power of art house Horror films. Suspiria is the first of Dario Argento’s Three Mothers Trilogy (Suspiria, Inferno, The Mother of Tears); each film revolving around one of three ancient mothers, a trio of powerful negative witches that seek to wreck chaos on the world.
“Since the 1982 publication of William Gibson’s Neuromancer, the first in a groundbreaking series of science fiction novels, many of his fictional concepts have been realized. Moreover, a segment of Western youth has dedicated itself to living in Gibson’s fictional world made fact.
Think I couldn’t get any more obscure with my picks. Just hold we’re going home. Back above ground and out of the spotlight. Here I am full time, riding the nostalgic wave of mutilation. I’m back with a bang and presenting this month’s Retro Movie of the Month – Vahsi Kan (Rampage) the 1983 Turkish reimagining, and in most points of view ripping off, of the Sylvester Stallone classic First Blood.
No Retreat No Surrender is a 1986 crossover movie from New World Pictures. I refer to the film as a crossover film because it is the US directorial debut of Corey Yuen (Ninja in the Dragon’s Den, Dance of the Drunk Mantis) and stars (in a supporting role) Jean-Claude Van Damme and Kurt McKinney.

The closet I’ve got to owning a movie car was driving the Jeep Cherokee XJ.
Any car enthusiast worth their salt understands that Volkswagen own everything, diesel is a poisonous slime, electric cars are a gimmick and automatics were first created so Americans could eat and drive simultaneously.
With that iconic Z style long bonnet, housing a new V6 turbo charged block, gorgeously angular lines and of course, pop up lights. The Nissan/Datsun Z series had brought many a driver thousands of smiles per hour in the past, a useable, heavily modifiable car, the home grown Japanese tuners love them.
This genre became very popular as you can imagine. The lineup of cars were always the coolest picks from the era and for me, the Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo from the Chase HQ series was one of the coolest cars of all time.
The shark nosed, quad light, BMW E28. A beautifully crafted, well rounded machine which no doubt paved the way to the slogan ‘The ultimate driving machine’.
The Scirocco was a reliable little car with a wicked character. The Mazda was a super rare Japanese cruiser but they were both lacking in one department…POWER!
At the time Mazda’s advertising slogan was “The more you look, the more you like” and nothing could be closer to the truth with this Mazda.
A hot new car from Volkswagen. As fast and powerful as the desert wind it’s named after.” A Volkswagen brochure for the second generation Scirocco states: “Named after a fierce desert wind, the Scirocco’s front wheel drive and transverse engine contribute to its tracking ability at all speeds
BMW is loved throughout the automotive world. However everyone, even those that don’t care about cars, know their biggest weakness: Stylistically thinking inside the box.
