Let’s Drink a Coors to Celebrate 40 Years of Burt Reynolds as “The Bandit”

Kevin: You may have noticed a lot of celebrations on May 25th this week of the 40th anniversary of the release of “Star Wars.” Well that’s all fine and good, but as far as I’m concerned May 27th marks the anniversary of an equally entertaining, influential, and important cinematic masterpiece: “Smokey and the Bandit,” which … Continue reading Let’s Drink a Coors to Celebrate 40 Years of Burt Reynolds as “The Bandit”

The Rock’s “Baywatch” Can’t Be More Entertaining Than Hasselhoff’s Bizarro “Baywatch Nights”

Kevin: Back in January we expressed our skepticism that the big-screen remakes of “CHiPs” and “Baywatch” could possibly match their television counterparts in both the action and comedy (at least of the unintentional variety) departments. We all know how the new “CHiPs” turned out, and it doesn’t look like Dwayne Johnson’s version of the 1990’s … Continue reading The Rock’s “Baywatch” Can’t Be More Entertaining Than Hasselhoff’s Bizarro “Baywatch Nights”

The Cannon: Kevin and CJ Tag Team Stallone’s Arm Wrestling Epic “Over the Top”

Kevin: We kicked off our series on the late great Hollywood schlockmeisters Cannon Films with “Missing in Action,” the surprisingly good Chuck Norris POW rescue drama that beat “Rambo: First Blood Part II” to theaters by a year. I had planned on tackling “Invasion USA” next, but unforeseen circumstances (I lost the copious notes I … Continue reading The Cannon: Kevin and CJ Tag Team Stallone’s Arm Wrestling Epic “Over the Top”

Review: In Space, No One Can Hear You Laugh at “Alien: Covenant”

Kevin: Nearly five years after “Prometheus” intrigued, confused, annoyed, and in some cases enraged audiences, Ridley Scott is back with a follow-up that appears to be just as polarizing as its predecessor. Although “Alien: Covenant” has a respectable 72 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, it barely beat the third weekend of “Guardians of the Galaxy … Continue reading Review: In Space, No One Can Hear You Laugh at “Alien: Covenant”

RIP: Powers Boothe is Locked and Loaded in “Rapid Fire”

Kevin: For such a memorable and well-liked character actor, the late Powers Boothe’s IMDB page is actually pretty thin when it comes to memorable and well-liked films. For every “Red Dawn” – where he steals the movie in his brief screen time as the Air Force colonel who whips the ragtag Wolverines into fighting shape … Continue reading RIP: Powers Boothe is Locked and Loaded in “Rapid Fire”

Flashback: With “Alien: Covenant” Upon Us, a Reminder of the Dumbest Moments from “Prometheus”

Kevin: It’s hard to believe it’s been less than five months since Twentieth Century Fox gifted us with the first footage of “Alien: Covenant” on Christmas Day last year. While the idea of doing a sequel to the wildly polarizing “Prometheus” seemed insane when it was first announced, Ridley Scott’s newest chapter in the series … Continue reading Flashback: With “Alien: Covenant” Upon Us, a Reminder of the Dumbest Moments from “Prometheus”

That Time James Bond Wore a RompHim™ in “Goldfinger”

Kevin: During a news cycle involving controversy over White House leaks, provocations from North Korea, and Turkish security assaulting protesters on American soil, somehow the biggest viral story yesterday involved a very unfortunate would-be new trend in men’s fashion. If you are on social media to any degree it’s likely that you have seen at … Continue reading That Time James Bond Wore a RompHim™ in “Goldfinger”
