THE ABCs OF REDNECK CULTURE

A-Frame-Since the Redneck either doesn’t have a garage, or it is filled to the brim with hunting gear, duck decoys and other essentials, this contraption for auto and pickup truck maintenance just might be in his front yard in all its grimy glory. Better still it could be in the back as pictured below. Vehicles […]

Villain (1971) How about an obscure British movie starring the great Richard Burton and fantastic (and very young) Ian McShane? Never heard of it? Me either, but if you can catch a copy of this somehow, you won’t be sorry. Burton plays the sadistic and murderous gang-leader Vic Dakin. Vic has a few issues and […]

The Road Warrior (1981). I have no explanation as to why this movie is not in the Ruthless Reviews Movie Archive. Jonny or Matt probably reviewed it and it just somehow didn’t make it over in the 2006 reboot of the site. No matter, a movie of this importance I must review, and of course […]

Masters of the Universe (1987) is not really considered an 80’s Action movie except for the overwhelming presence of one Dolph Lundgren. This puts things over the top and into perspective. Like Arnold, Dolph is Adonis, a God, and must be treated as such. The movie sucked at the time, but there were several great […]

War for the Planet of the Apes. l’ll have to say that I looked forward to this movie with a fair amount of expectation. Why? Nothing else has really excited me this year since Get Out. Alien:Covenant was quite good, but the fanboy crying about it virtually ruined it for me. Free Fire was fun, […]
