Hard Times (1975)

Hard Times (1975)

Our country is mired in a desperate economic recession… and it naturally made me think of Walter Hill’s excellent depression era film Hard Times (1975) about a bare knuckle fighter (Charles Bronson) who is way too old to be doing what he’s doing and the degenerate gambler (James Coburn) who schemes to make money off […]

Long before the hit TV show The L Word (2004) and the amazing film Jackie Brown (1997) Pam Grier starred along with Fred ‘The Hammer’ Williamson better known for Black Caesar (1973) and Hell up in Harlem (1973.)

The Warriors (1979)

I asked both of them, “Do you guys have any idea how cool this movie really is?” They look at each other blankly, then turned to me and I kid you not… Walter Hill asks me, “What movie?” He was dead serious. I replied, “The Warriors man! You guys built that one to last!”

Rob Roy (1995)

by  |  January 18th, 2011  |  Action/Adventure

Rob Roy (1995)

An existential action flick about Scottish guys in kilts going on about honor during the middle ages? Really? You bet. It wouldn’t get the attention that Braveheart did a year later, but for my money, Rob Roy (1995) is as good, if not better. While a smaller film in terms of scope (there are no […]

Streets Of Fire (1984)

by  |  January 8th, 2011  |  Action/Adventure

Streets Of Fire (1984)

For fans of kickass movies, it doesn’t get much more awesome than Walter Hill’s Streets of Fire (1984), which, for whatever reason, didn’t connect when originally released. Which was too bad, because it truly is a classic noir action flick in its own right … set in another time, another place, it combines music and […]


Hudson Hawk (1991)

by  |  December 20th, 2010  |  Action/Adventure

Hudson Hawk (1991)

Hudson Hawk is a brilliant piece of B-movie history, worth almost as much as the film it’s printed on. A visual tome that spans the ages, from Da Vinci’s imagining of the modern helicopter to a labyrinth of secret tunnels in the present day Vatican.

by  |  November 28th, 2010  |  Action/Adventure

Firewalker (1986)

by  |  November 22nd, 2010  |  Action/Adventure

Firewalker (1986)

Much like the now legendary teaming of Bob Hope and Bing Crosby, Chuck Norris and Louis Gossett Jr. are paired up as fortune hunters in this zany buddy romp! What else is there to say really?
