In 1982 James Cameron had a dream while lying in a sick-bed. His vision turned into what would become one of the most magnificent sci-fi action movies ever created. The Terminator (1984) is the movie that launched Arnold Schwarzenegger’s career as the greatest bad-ass ever to hit the screen. This masterpiece was as unique as […]
Film TitleThe Terminator (1984)
A terrifying cybernetic unit from the future will stop at nothing until all the Sarah Conners’ are dead
Film TitleThe Road Warrior (1981)
In a dystopian, post-apocalyptic world, they don’t need the girl, and nothing escapes.
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 […]
Film TitleMasters of the Universe (1987)
He-Man Dolph battles Skeletor for control of the universe.
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 […]
Big Trouble In Little China Released:1986 Tagline: They told Jack Burton to go to hell…and that’s exactly where he’s going! Entire Story In Fewer Words Than Are In This Sentence: They need girl(s), and the truck. Fuck Chinese Magic! Homoeroticism: None. Oh, boy, we need to talk. O.K., there was a weak attempt at redemption […]
Film TitleHobo with a Shotgun (2011)
This Hobo has had enough, and delivers justice one shell at a time.
Hobo with a Shotgun was hardly an 80’s Action Movie since it was produced in 2011, but there was no reason that the 80’s format could not be used on this totally over the top bloodbath. If you don’t approve, take it up with Rutger Hauer. Yeah, that’s what I thought. Hobo with a Shotgun […]
Mad Max doesn’t need….
It would be all too easy to attack the immense (and at times immensely shitty) catalog of Cannon Films and the insane Menachem Golan and Yoram Globus overlords who brought it all to fruition. They built a studio out of almost nothing, and began forcing into existence a fuckton of movies with nothing more than […]
Buy our book or go to hell!
I love Predator. But do I love him after watching all 5 movies in a row?
