We Want Action Double Feature: Rambo (1985) & Predator (1987)

For the past seven or eight years — pretty much since I got out of college — I’ve been focusing on absorbing as much new entertainment as possible, not necessarily brand new, but new to me. In that time, and going back to my days in high school and college, I’ve also been building up … Continue reading We Want Action Double Feature: Rambo (1985) & Predator (1987)

Toy Commercial Tuesday: Havoc Vs. Turbo From Rambo

This will probably be the last Rambo TCT for a little while at least. After reviewing First Blood and then writing about this commercial last week, I just couldn’t stop watching Rambo toy commercials on YouTube. I love this particular one because it’s such a crazy mix. You’ve got the very grounded, movie-like villain Havoc … Continue reading Toy Commercial Tuesday: Havoc Vs. Turbo From Rambo

Toy Commercial Tuesday: Rambo & General Warhawk

Today’s selection for TCT actually came about from a pair of recent posts. First of all, I talked about innapropriate toy lines based on R-rated films for kids with last week’s entry in this column when talking about Alien Vs. Predator toys. A few days later, I wrote about re-watching and really enjoying First Blood. … Continue reading Toy Commercial Tuesday: Rambo & General Warhawk

Fourth Blood: A Rambo Review

2008-06-086:19:36 am So, yeah, a movie from 2008 might not exactly be considered “kicking it old school,” but I figured, since it’s the fourth in a series of rad action movies from the ’80s, it can count. Also, I watched First Blood a couple of weeks ago and was completely weirded out by the fact … Continue reading Fourth Blood: A Rambo Review

Book Report: Damnation Game & The Reaping

As anyone who was paying attention to UM in the fall will know, I plunged deeply into the world of horror for most of September and October. By the time I finished up the epic undertaking of It’s All Connected 2020, I took a break from watching a lot of horror movies throughout most of … Continue reading Book Report: Damnation Game & The Reaping

Halloween Scene Toy Commercial Tuesday Trio

Going through Vincent Price Toy Commercials last week was a lot of fun, so let’s check out a trio of wild horror-inspired toy spots! I have no memory of these Gruesome, Rude, Obnoxious, Silly Scarfers from Tiger, but this might be one of the most delightful ads I’ve seen in a long time. From the … Continue reading Halloween Scene Toy Commercial Tuesday Trio

Friday Fisticuffs: Close Range & Hard Target 2

I’ve been a fan of Scott Adkins’ action flicks since I first saw Assassination Games back in 2012. The next year I was blown away by Universal Soldier: Day Of Reckoning, which is still one of the best action films I’ve ever seen. With that in mind, I’m pretty much watching every one of his … Continue reading Friday Fisticuffs: Close Range & Hard Target 2
