    I’ve long held a soft spot for pirate movies.
    I think it’s due to this having been one of my favorite books as a wee lad:

    At any rate, Renny Harlin’s swashbuckling epic is a bonafide cult classic and predated the whole Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.

    Its sheer scale and the practical effects alone are staggering.

    I vividly remember going to see this on Christmas Day eve in 1981 after celebrating Christmas with the family. I was in 8th grade and my cousins who were in High School took me…

    Great movie

    Going way back you can't beat Burt and Nick Cravat

    And if you like that, the Italian 'Robin Hood' is more of the same but better

    caught the last part of Road House last nite (seen in full multiple times)

    adding that one to my shortlist.
    the music is great during the dramatic fight scenes.
    the themes are still relevant
    and X's john doe is in it too for added cred.

    BEAST WITH A GUN (aka MAD DOG KILLER) - Sergio Greico, 1977

    This Italian poliziotteschi exploitationer is notable for having been featured in Quentin Tarantino’s Jackie Brown in a couple of scenes involving the characters Louis Gara (Robert DeNiro) and Melanie (Bridget Fonda) who sit around their apartment during the day watching it in a marijuana haze.
    The film itself is a hearty mixture of car chases, gun violence, and a rough rape scene. The story is pretty routine: psychotic thug escapes from prison and goes on a killing spree, all the while hunted by a tenacious beach bum looking cop.
    The score, by Umberto Smaila, is fantastic. It’s actually my favorite part of the film. I heard shades of John Carpenter’s Halloween score wafting throughout, but given that this film came out a full year prior, perhaps Mr. Carpenter was inspired by it?

    THE TOXIC AVENGER
    I have now attempted to get through this film 3X to no avail.
    It is just bad. And not good bad, either. It’s bad bad, as in terrible. It doesn’t even have any unintentional camp value.
    Perhaps if I had seen it back in 1984 at a packed midnight screening with a head full of beer and Mary Jane it might have been hilarious.
    But watching, sorry, trying to watch it sober in 2023, well it just doesn’t fly.
    Barely made it to the 42-minute mark (and even that took me a couple of weeks to get through) before cutting my losses.

    Of note is the fact that there is a reboot on the way starring Peter Dinklage. Yeah. Go figure.

    Ha! I'd argue you could nominate most of the Cohen Brothers films.

    The Big Lebowski though is possibly the most classic.

    yeah, probably. Raising Arizona is pretty close to perfect though. The only flaw I can find is that you can see the foam rubber when John Goodman emerges from the mud during the prison escape. What a masterpiece
