The middle of 1982 was the time when the world was fascinated with computers and all the possibility of living in a new world. The movie Tron was released and it blew everyone’s minds. Just imagine the future. Man and machine living in the same space. There was one particular person that took notice of Tron: Su-yong Jeong. A South Korean director that, in the middle of 1983, will release this gem of a retarded movie.
Saviour of the Earth is a Tron knock off with a voice dubbing done by about two people that do all the voices for all the characters in the same voice that they normally use when they talk. And with 1983 cheap-animation skills, the voice never follows the mouth’s movements. So we never knew who was talking at any time. The cadence was also so bad that you when someone stops talking and another person begins.
At some point Pac Man chases the main actor in the computer. There’s that.
I’m not too sure on the plot. I think there was a guy that tries to take over the world, so he goes inside the computer and teleports to another persons computer and sucks them into the computer as well to battle them. The computers will also launch some attack somewhere using some weapon. Honestly, this was bad.
The parts I remember seems random but the entire movie was random. There was a guy named “Black John” and he was a bad guy initially and then for no reason helps the main guy. The is a woman in a bikini that wears an eye-patch that pilots a submarine with no other crew and she has a midget child sister that is mechanical. The little sister somehow has feelings and falls in love with the main guy but she feels rejected when he asks “why don’t you have a nose?”. The rest of the dialogue also was like bad imitation of a Stephen Hawking computer voice.
This was shit. Don’t watch.
Its 2016 and the guys that made Max Mad Fury Road didn’t pander to Chinese audiences so the Chinese market took up that slack and made their own Mad Max.
It was in mandarin but had subtitles, not that it matters. We’re pretty sure the plot was about some gang that was looking for women. Then a rival gang that hates the main gang for some reason. Then there was a character like the hunchback guy from 300 who goes to a gang and tells them about the existence of a women in some place and she dresses like a man to hide. The main gang finds her, captures her, she escapes, there is a battle, gang loses. Then for no reason the gang is still alive for a second battle and they quickly lose.
There were some highlights of this shit show:
- The woman is question is very pretty and we all fell in love with her.
- The second-in-command of the main gang had an Orlando Pirates badge. This is a logo of South African soccer team.
- The props like the jackets, goggles, chains, skulls, etc were all bought from the cheapest toy store in Mongolia.
- The car chase run at about 20km/h. Possibly the slowest high-speed chase we’ve ever seen.
- The pickup trucks had, for some reason, doors to get into the bed that was open. I’ve never seen a 4-door pickup where the front passengers had a roof and the rear was open. Maybe it was China. Maybe it was the most unique Mad Max thing designed.
- Bad CGI explosions.
- The gang makes a “woo woo” police sound with their mouths as a way to intimidate their victims.
- There was 2 minute part where they advertise some app for your phone.
This movie was funny and bad. They rip off Mad Max by telling someone that doesn’t know what Mad Max was to write the script and design the set. Watch it!
Its 2015 and some old actors need to fill their acting quota so that they can remain part of the Acting Union so they beat a dead horse called The Scorpion King franchise.
There is an out of place Don ‘The Dragon’ Wilson, prop Rutger Hauer, crazy father Barry Bostwick, background santa guy, odd Michael Biehn, odd Lou Ferrigno, odd Esme Bianco (the prostitute from Game of Thrones) and wrestler Eve Torres.
So the plot. The all powerful scorpion king tries to steal an all powerful stick. His henchman betrays him and sells the stick to some king. The king dies, something happens and Scorpie meets a fit girl with her crazy father and they beat the guy that bought the stick because they are enemies. For some reason, the crazy old father becomes king because Scorps killed the baddie.
The thing you will notice while watching this movie is how clean everything and everyone is. The middle ages had the best dental care systems and its been downhill since. Then the props are very flimsy. You can see that the actors take effort in not knocking into them too badly in case they visibly bend. \
The CGI scorpions, spiders, fire, transitions and other effects are of the worst quality that you can imagine.
Should you watch this? No. Because I actualy think that they knew that they were making a bad movie. And being self-aware is a big NO-NO for being considered a B movie. You need to play it straight and fail spectacularly.
I have no idea whats going on. I really don’t give a shit about this movie. Watching all 12 and not waging war on our eyeballs was an achievement. We’re all glad that we’re done with all the Sidaris movies.
This 1996 Sidaris moving picture was the last one that he will expose to the world. It has the usual ‘actresses’, Rodrigo, dry humping, remote control toys, the Jeep, Jewel Panther.
L.E.T.H.A.L. stood for Legion to Ensure Total Harmony and Law. They make a point of this at the start by showing it a few times in shots.
Cobra, Scorpion and Black Widow are back as baddies. Didn’t they get killed in the last one?
Widow knocks a guy out with a boob.
The end is a wrestling match with the warrior guy. I still don’t know what he was doing in the movie.
Rodrigo has a beard like captain price from Call of Duty.
Should you watch it? Only if you’re 12 or you need to complete the set.
We talked about which of the 12 Sidaris movies was the best and the clear winner was Hard Ticket to Hawaii. It was the first one that we watched and also the one with the most memorable moments. The skateboarder, the 4-barrel bazooka, Ridge Forrester driving through walls, the snake, the ‘cancer infested rats’, the Frisbee and I’m sure theres more.
So Andy, fuck you and thank you.
Breakin 1 was so successful, Cannon cranked out a sequel a few months later. In 1984, they called it Breakin 2: The Electric Boogaloo. From this point forward, every sequel that is made that didn’t need to made will be subtitled with an “Electric Boogaloo”.
The plot can be summed up pretty quickly. Some developer wants land and will bulldoze a community recreation centre. The dancers will dance and get donations to stop them. Thats it. How did they manage to stretch out this plot to 94 minutes is beyond me. Also, why do communities have recreation centres? Do they not have specific spaces to do specific things? Why a general space for recreation? Why are people so sentimental about it too? It’s just a building. You can build a new one somewhere else. Or have specific spaces for specific needs. Like a dance hall to dance. A gym to work out. A tool shop for DIY hobby work. Are recreation centres widely used in the rest of the world? They weren’t at all used in my Country.
So our friends Boogaloo Shrimp and Turbo are up to their usual tricks. Practicing random dance moves and wearing the strangest clothes in anticipation of a dance off battle. This does happen. They were looking for a parking spot or something and they did a dance off with another team that parked their cars in a parking space. They also do their usual trick of asking for help and then saying ‘we dont need your help’.
Ice T is in it.
Don’t watch this shit. 1 is better than 2.
The Dallas Connection is so forgettable that I forgot that we watched it. I shall attempt to remember what went on.
Its a 1994 Andy Sidaris movie and its the second last one. The main guy Rodrigo, who acts in every Sidaris film, and writes some too, wants to give some computer chip to some satellite company but bad people don’t want it to happen so that try to kill him.
The bad people are these silicone girls names Scorpion, Cobra and Black Widow. They assassinate people using radio controlled cars that drive under their cars and blow up.
I remember that they tried to kill some South African that happens to talk like an American and drive and American car and in the end its revealed that he jumped out of the car and ran away before it exploded. I don’t think he was important to the plot either.
Anyways, the usual Sidaris tropes are here. Shower scenes. The exposition jacuzzi. The hot-cops. Planes. Explosions. Radio controlled toys. The Jeep.
Julie Strain is back. She was Jewel Panther in Enemy Gold. Very tall and has all the silicone.
Watch it if you’re 12 and you’re alone. Otherwise you’re wasting your time.
