HARD TO KILL (Steven Seagal) Movie Review : REEL ACTION

For Steven Seagal, 1990s HARD TO KILL was the movie that made him a mega-star. Sure, ABOVE THE LAW had been a surprise hit two years earlier, but the grosses didn’t suggest a new movie star had been born. However, his scaled-down, slick follow-up vehicle, HARD TO KILL, would prove to be a mega-hit, grossing twice what its predecessor did and giving Seagal his trademark for the first time in his career – his iconic ponytail. However, its road to the big screen was anything but smooth, as we get into in this week’s REEL ACTION!

ROAD HOUSE Movie Review (1989 – Patrick Swayze) – REEL ACTION

In 1987, Patrick Swayze won hearts and became the male heartthrob of the eighties in DIRTY DANCING. So what would be his follow-up? Becoming an action icon in the amazing cult-classic ROAD HOUSE. The legend of Crazy Swayze was born in what producer Joel Silver promised would be the greatest drive-in B-movie of all time, and he was right. Swayze plays Dalton, a “cooler” – basically meaning he’s the John Wick of bar bouncers – who’s hired to clean up a notorious bar called “The Double Deuce”, only to run afoul of the villainous Wesley (Ben Gazzara), who rules the town with an iron fist. Along the way, he falls in love with the town doctor (the gorgeous Kelly Lynch), with his erstwhile mentor (Sam Elliot) in tow. A good time is guaranteed for all in this latest installment of REEL ACTION!

SPECTRE (2015) Daniel Craig: James Bond Revisited

JoBlo Videos – It’s likely one of the most controversial James Bond movies of all time. Still, Sam Mendes’s SPECTRE was intended to be a massive 007 epic that would pull together elements from all the other Daniel Craig James Bond movies for what I’m sure they hoped would be a global blockbuster that could rival SKYFALL. Fans were excited because it promised the return of Ernst Stavro Blofeld. While the box office receipts and critical reaction fell short somewhat, it was still a blockbuster that paved the way for the upcoming NO TIME TO DIE, even if fans, by and large, seem to dislike it. So join us here on James Bond Revisited as we dig into SPECTRE!
