Never seen Ms.45 but heard a lot about it,really like - China girl and - king of new York but can't remember much about the - bad lieutenant apart from it ends rather downbeat and abruptly but I suppose that's the norm for Ferrara.

He's definitely not someone who goes along with the normal Hollywood happy endings [Big Grin]

And then there was his one infamous talk show appearance on The Conan O'Brien Show. (As I recall it was around the time of The Funeral.) He was drunk off his a**, and you could visibly see the look of horror in O'Brien's eyes. Ferrara rambled on about strip bars for a few minutes, they cut to a commercial, and when they came back, he was off the couch without a word. As I recall, it might have been at Cannes or something, but he gave press interviews from inside his hotel wardrobe. LOL

You will love Ms. 45. It still shows the scuzzy side of NYC, but it's amazingly stylish and has this wonderful, blaring saxophone on the soundtrack. (I think one of the cuts played during a party scene is actually called "Ms. 45 Disco" in the end credits. [Smile] )

I remember this !

There has been an interview where he talked to a Dutch film-journalist, and during the interview he had
an assistant there who made sure he didn't fall over.. literally ! He was completely wasted ! [Big Grin]

I love Fear City! Never seen Ms .45 but The Driller Killer is crazy and cheap fun and King of New York rocks.
Bad Lieutenant is cool and i also like Body Snatchers. Only seen China Girl once in the late 80s so i need to rewatch that one.
I also have Cat Chaser and Snake Eyes on the shelf.

Hmmm... this is a hard one to judge, or even label. I guess courtroom romance comedy thriller about covers it. Some of it works, some of it doesn't. But overall I found this a, for the most part, charming and pleasant experience.

Redford is always solid, Debra Winger is a little shaky in her role, but appealing nonetheless, and Daryl Hannah, while nice to look at, not much of a thespian at this time. But throw in the likes of Brian Dennehy, Terence Stamp and Roscoe Lee Browne and it all evens out.

Some of the material has a real old Hollywood feel to it, while some of it feels very (80's) contempo, like a weird performance art scene and some modern (80's) action beats. In all honesty it maybe doesn't gel that well, and yet I have no major complaints about Legal Eagles as a piece of harmless entertainment. I enjoyed it despite its flaws.

I agree. It´s lightweight old school entertainment with 80s touch and strong cast.

Slightly underwhelming, considering it was Reitman's follow-up to Ghostbusters, but not a bad movie by any means.

Also watched...

Hadn't seen this before and was positively surprised. But then again, I don't think i've ever seen a bad performance from James Woods, who works really well in this dark and noirish material. Obsessed cop chases a psycho killer through the filthy underbelly of Hollywood etc. I thought this film was really effective and quite the underrated gem I guess, since I never heard much about it anywhere. Certainly recommended for cops n' crime enthusiasts.

Woods cranked out some memorable performances in the 80's for sure... Videodrome, Once Upon a Time in America, Against All Odds, Salvador, Bestseller, Cop and well into the 90's and beyond.

Watched Target (1985) and found it quite average cold war spy flick to tell the truth.
Solid acting and few car chases but the film just never burst into flames (well, there´s explosions in the end but you know what i mean [Smile] ) .
It´s also a bit too long, almost two hours. Decent stuff but nothing extraordinary.

Watched also The Believers (1987) last weekend.

"A New York psychiatrist finds that a voodoo cult, which believes in child sacrifice, has a keen interest in his own son."

This one is much better film and Martin Sheen gives a fantastic performance!
Robert Loggia, Helen Shaver and Harley Cross co-star and you can also see quality actors like Harris Yulin, Lee Richardson and Richard Masur is smaller roles.
John Schlesinger directed this one and Mark Frost (Twin Peaks) did the screenplay based on Nicolas Conde´s ´82 novel.
Few nasty scenes, the tension builds up nicely and once again J. Peter Robinson has created few cool synth melodies.
I remember seeing this one back in the late 80s so it was about time to rewatch it. Recommended!

i like both - target and - the believers,not seen the believers for quite some time but do remember it having a pretty creepy atmosphere to it.

sad about robert loggia passing the other day,when i looked up his performances i realised
just how many of my faves that he's appeared in!

High School USA. This isn't real good but it is watchable due to the 80s nostalgia and plenty of well known faces that appear in it.

It will grow on you. A couple of views is necessary. It's just very light hearted and easy to watch and I love the typical 80s faces in it.

I remember The Believers. I'm fairly sure my parents had it on VHS, but I guess my Mother gave away all of their VHS tapes, as there are none left.

Very entertaining Charles bronson sleazefest from 1989 which has our main man trying to take down a real lowlife L.A pimp called duke (superbly played by Juan Fernandez) who has kidnapped a young Japanese girl for use in a sex ring.

Technically very well made which comes as no real surprise when you see it was helmed by veteran director and charles Bronson regular - j. Lee Thompson who I think I have counted this right worked (directing) with Bronson an incredible 9 times.


 -
bronson dishing out the justice to lowlife L.A pimp 'duke' by making him swallow his rolex.

This was to be j Lee Thompson's very last movie before his death some 13 years later in 2002 and also the very last picture that charles Bronson would do for cannon films though he would go on to work with one of the brothers (Golan) for one last time in 1994's - death wish 5 .


 -
charles bronson doing an action man figure kick!

Looking down the list of Bronson's and director j. Lee Thompson's work together this is certainly not one of there strongest entries,in all truth it's leaning more towards the bottom of the pile but with that being said it's still a well made film and it's also always a blast to watch a then 67 year old charles Bronson kicking some major butt!

Sleazy 80s fun from cannon film's and I'd give a solid 7 out of 10.

That original - return of the jedi artwork is awesome j2me,I saw -stikes back and - Jedi in the theatres when first released,both were great fun and both were perfect for that big screen experience!

The 1977 original is still my favourite though.

Warrior.. I have liked GOTCHA since the day I saw it in the theater. To this day, I don't think there is anything about it I don't like. It does a great job of taking one back to the 80s, especially the game of TAG which was big at that time. Being sweet on Linda helps. I have always liked her. My copy shows her nude.
Most memorable line is "why are you in such a hurry to leave Zuh DDR"
Noticed Nick Corri is in Along Came Polly the other day.
