Prayer of the Rollerboys (1990)

"Set in an unspecified time in the future, USA has declined and become a country of violence and racial prejudice.
Griffin earns his living delivering pizzas while he tries to take care of his little brother. An old friend of his, Gary Lee, is the leader of a gang with big ambitions, the Rollerboys.
Gary joins them to help the police keep track of the gang." (IMDb)

finally got to watch this Haimster film and i don´t know, it was a decent feature but sooo silly at times.
I liked the setting and it was surprisingly violent with lots of skin.
The industrial flavoured soundtrack was not my cup of tea though.

I can´t help but think that i should´ve seen this back when it was released.
The creative team Rick King/W. Peter Ilif wrote Point Break in 1991 so they definitely did have some talent.

I really enjoy Prayer Of The Rollerboys but it took me a couple of viewings to warm to it,I first watched it back more or less when it hit home video here in the UK (90/91) and even back then it came across as amazingly silly but there's certainly something about it as I have definitely took to it since and have watched it numerous times!

I absolutely adored Patricia Arquette back in the day and have always found the Haimster fun to watch,also the skating was pretty ace and while the soundtrack wasn't amazing I did like the track Blown Away by King Swamp -

One thing about this movie though is I can never keep a straight face when you see the Rollerboys with there long coats on swinging there arms in tandem and I can imagine when this first viewed in theatres back in the day that there was a serious amount of sniggering going on!

Fun 1992 action drama Starring Carl Weather's as Billy 'Hurricane' Smith a Texas oil field worker who travels to Australia's stunning Gold Coast to look for his sister who has mysteriously disappeared!

While there it comes to light that she was mixed up in a prostitution racket run by a despicable mob boss Charlie Dowd as played by the always great Jurgen Prochnow.

Have always liked Carl Weather's and I thought he was again very decent here and I know that he had Action Jackson a few years prior but I think it's a pity that he didn't do more of these big screen lead action roles as I do think that they suited him down to the ground and looking at his filmography that after Hurricane Smith he seemed to turn his attention mostly to TV work with just the odd big screen cameo here and there in Adam Sandler's comedies such as Happy Gilmore and Little Nicky which I think was a big shame!

Carl Weather's and David Argue during the finale of 1992s Hurricane Smith.


The pretty Cassandra Delaney (who was once married to the late musician John Denver) plays Weather's love interest in what too date was her final film role and also the familiar face of David Argue (BMX Bandits, Razorback) appears here as a character named Shanks.

Moves at a fair old pace and has quite the Action packed finale plus Delaney flashes some skin and the Aussie Gold Coast makes for a great setting!

Overall well worth checking out!

Would like to see Hurricane Smith, watched most Weathers films during my movie marathon few years ago but still don´t own this one.

My Life is another interesting film i would like to see but is maybe a bit too depressing.

Watched Hughes films Dutch (1991) and Curly Sue (1991) and found both of them subpar stuff.
Mediocre cast, no chemistry, no feel, bad jokes, stupid behavior etc. etc.

Dutch was directed by Peter Faiman who did Crocodile Dundee back in ´86, then Dutch and then nothing. I wonder how and why John even contacted this guy?
Hughes directed Curly Sue himself but hated the film so maybe his time was just over. Such a shame.

I think i´m going to end my Hughes journey here. I have no interest watching the Disney remakes he wrote during the late 90s-00s.

He´s always going to be one of the true legends but stick with the 80s classics, the 90s was poison for this man.

Alienator (1990)

Haha, what a crapfest directed by the cheapomeister Fred Olen Ray [Smile]
The film stars Jan-Michael Vincent, John Phillip Law, P.J. Soles, Ross Hagen plus a bunch of nobodys and the acting is so lousy i thought i was gonna die [Big Grin]

The story moves very slowly, someone must´ve told the crew that this movie MUST be at least 90 minutes long.
So much wtf stuff here: P.J. Soles´ outfit - oh my god [Big Grin] , J-M Vincent mumbling his lines and the woman who plays Alienator, Teagan Clive, is one MASSIVE chick.
Well, i wanted to watch crap and that´s just what i got [Smile]

Take no prisoners!

More in hope for a real-life occurrence than anything else, I re-watched Dave last night.

That's not actually fair, because it's a terrific movie and all involved do really well.

Wouldn't it be nice to have a Trump lookalike, though... [Smile]

Really enjoyed this 1998 spoof with Leslie Nielsen which sends up the likes of The Fugitive, Braveheart,Mission Impossible,Field Of Dreams,Titanic,Clear And Present Danger etc etc. it has so many sight gags that chances are you will bound to end up laughing at something or other!


Fun cast as well what with Leslie Nielsen you also get Rambo's Richard Crenna,Kelly Lebrock plus a brief appearance from Michael York.


Great fun!
