AIRWOLF
(1985)

Whereas Blue Thunder was a movie - a genuine piece of cinema - Airwolf looks every bit like the made-for-television pilot episode that it was. Instead of Roy Scheider we had Jan-Michael Vincent, instead of English baddie, Malcolm McDowell, we had English baddie, David Hemmings, and instead of movie budget explosions, we had stock footage bangs.




The only thing JMV is good fo'!

Looks better than the last couple at least.


It has a bit of a Dream Warriors vibe to it in the concept.

The doll doesn't look too great imo. I didn't think much of the last one, so I'm not expecting much this time.

So I did Year of the Dragon. Pretty good actually. Though I couldn't help but wonder 'what if' at times. You couldn't help but feel studio interference at play. Had Heavens Gate not tanked, I feel like there's have been a bit more freedom with this.

Also with 1985 I did

After Hours - Didn't impress me as much as I felt it should. You know when you appreciate something, but don't necessarily enjoy it?

The Quiet Earth - Really didn't know what I was getting into, but I really liked it a lot. Keeps it short and simple, and despite a few questionable moments, it works really well.

Police Academy 2 - Solid enough film, it's amusing, well paced, and an easy watch. Nothing 'must see' about it, but nothing wrong with it.

One thing that struck me was the number of sequels I have in this list in which I haven't seen the original. Friday the 13th 5, Rocky 4, Mad Max 3, Porkies 3, Police Academy 2, Loose Screws 2, Rambo 2 and so on. Thankfully the one's I've seen of those have worked as stand alone films.

I'm pretty sure they're all stuff I've had downloaded for ages. It's just getting round to everything.

I think I'm going to stop when I hit 85 from 1985, currently on 55.

1955 was a better year.

On the one hand you have Night of The Hunter which adds weight to that claim. On the other there is Moonfleet, without doubt Fritz Lang's worst film. And I refuse to belive the year of Lang's worst film can be the best year for cinema :p

Then again Cahiers du Cinéma named it 32nd best film ever made, so what do I know? Haha

1955 goes like this:

Ordet












Everything else.

The 80s were not a great decade for film.

I love that film. Seems to be only big in the US though.

Lost me at 'Rodney Dangerfield'.

Wonder Woman - Meh. Ridiculously overhyped, basic plot (which featured fuck all actual war, considering its setting and villain(s)), stupidly obvious twist, hit & miss CGI. I honestly thought BvS:DOJ was better. I am, however, in love with Gal Gadot. 3/5, I suppose.

The last two films I attempted to watch:

Okja: Turned it off within 10 minutes, preachy "wacky" shite. I was expecting a lot better from that.

Transformers The Last Knight: Walked out of the cinema after the first twenty minutes, even for Bay this was terrible.

I never understood walking out of a film.

I don't know if it's a borderline ocd need for completion, a naive hope that the film will eventually either get better or have some sort of pay off, but even the worst films I've stuck with until the end.

I googled the plot in the cinema to see if it got any better and the views were a resounding "No" then what tipped me into walking out was as follows spoiler warning etc.


*******SPOILERS********


Found out Unicron is planet earth and sacked it right the fuck off.

I've never walked out of a film in my life, and I've sat through Circle Of fucking Friends. Like Anni, a combination of stubborness and hope for an improvement.

I sat through Freddy's Dead, jesus...

The only film I've been tempted to walk out on was Rob Zombie's remake of Halloween 2...

I have not seen Ordet, but for me, 1955 goes:

1. The Night of the Hunter
2. Les Diaboliques
3. This Island Earth
4. Rebel Without a Cause
5. The Dam Busters
