(NOT SO) Random (JAMES BOND BLU-RAY) Movie Mention: “A VIEW TO A KILL” (1985)

A View To A Kill (1985)

Yeah, That’s What’s On.

I Just Happen To Have This Classic JAMES BOND Caper On Ye Ole BLU-RAY, Now!

Exciting, Eh?!

:D

For The Longest Time, I Insisted To My Friends ((and anyone else whom might/might-not care)) That This BOND Adventure…

A VIEW TO A KILL

…Was MY ULTIMATE-FAVORITE BOND Flick.

Period.

And, For The Bulk Of My Youth, It Honestly Was.

While It May Not Be MY FAVORITE Any Longer, It Remains A True Joy For Me To Kick-Back And Watch.

A VIEW TO A KILL” And “OCTOPUSSY” Actually Started My Personal Love Affair AND Adventure With Ole -007- And His Amazingly Wonderful World.

I Sincerely Haven’t Looked Back, Since.

I’ve Been Hooked From The Onset.

I Do So So SO Love This Movie, And Think It To Be Very Very VERY Underrated.

Yeah, I’ll Grant That ROGER MOORE Was A Little “Long-In-The-Tooth” At Times During This One.

It Can’t Be Denied, So I Won’t Even Try To Do So.

But, Did It Honestly Bother Me???

Nope.

NOT. AT. ALL.

I’m A Huge ROGER MOORE Fanboy.

He Shall Always AND Forever Be MY FAVORITE BOND, And It’s Pure Bliss For Me To Watch Him Go On A Mission As The World’s Most Famous Spy.

:D       :D       :D

A VIEW TO A KILL” Co-Stars CHRISTOPHER WALKEN As Our Baddie, The F-in’ Brilliantly Insane “MAX ZORIN“, Whom Is Hell-Bent On Destroying Silicon Valley, California, With A Man-Made MEGA-DISASTER!

He Wants To Corner The World’s Microchip Market, You See.

Honestly, He’s The Icing On The Sweet Sweet Cake That Is A ROGER MOORE Bond-Fest.

And, If CHRISTOPHER WALKEN Is The Icing, Then GRACE JONES As The Evil Henchwoman “MAY-DAY” Is The Strawberry On-Top!

(((I hate raw cherries, so those don't come anywhere near my sweet sweet cakes with icing!)))

Just Sayin’.

;)

This Flick Is Truly PRICELESS.

It’s Over-The-Top At Times, But It’s Totally Worth It, My Peeps.

The Chase Scene Going From The Eiffel Tower, And Ending With A Crashed Wedding On A Barge, Is Simply Wonderful FUN.

And, That’s Exactly What The Whole Flick Is…

FUN!!!

Sometimes, That’s Really All I’m Lookin’ For.

I’m Very Happy To Have Now Added This BOND Caper To My Blu-ray Collection, And Now I’m Going To Get Back To Watching It.

I’ve Likely Seen It 412′ish Times…

…BUT It Has Yet To Get Old.

OH, And Don’t Forget About The Film’s Theme Song!

It’s Performed By Another Person Favorite…

DURAN DURAN

!!! !!! !!!

VTAK_-_UK_cinema_poster (via Wikipedia)

It’s STILL My Absolute Favorite BOND Theme Song.

Period Period Period.

Y’all Should Give This BOND Flick Another Chance, My Peeps.

It Is Deserving Of At Least That Much.

Who Knows, Maybe You’ll Encounter A New Found Appreciation For It.

I Know I Did, And I Already Really Enjoyed It.

You Just Can’t Beat JAMES BOND On The BLU-RAY!!!

:D

Happy Movie Watching, Kiddies!!!

:D       :D       :D       :D       :D       :D       :D

Quickly, What’s On Now?!? –SEAN CONNERY As JAMES BOND -007- In “YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE” (1967)

You Only Live Twice (1967)

I Consider…

YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE

(1967)

…To Be The Most Underrated Of The…

SEAN CONNERY As JAMES BOND

…Adventure Epics…

…And It’s A Damn Fine Adventure At That, My Peeps!

:D

YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE

…Was Directed By…

LEWIS GILBERT

…Whom Would Later Helm The JAMES BOND Adventures…

THE SPY WHO LOVED ME

(1977)

…And…

MOONRAKER

(1979)

…Both Of Which Are Personal FAVES Of FAVES!

:D       :D

Alright, The Gist Of The Flick Is This:

The World Sits On The Brink Of WORLD WAR III.

An American Spacecraft Has Disappeared, Following An Encounter With An Unknown Spacecraft.

The Americans Are Blaming The Russians For Entire Incident.

(((Of Course They Are!)))

They (The Americans) Make It Known They’re Going To Launch Another Spacecraft In Just A Few Weeks.

If ANYTHING Happens To It, They Will Consider It An Act Of War!

The British Government, On The Other Hand, Does NOT Believe The Russians Are Responsible.

This, However, Must Be Proven Before Something Does Happen That Could Ignite The World Into Full-Scale Nuclear Armageddon!

Sooo…

…The British Government Fakes JAMES BOND‘s Death, Freeing Him To Go On The Hunt For The Truth.

They’re Sending BOND To Japan, Where They Believe The Before Mentioned “Unknown Spacecraft” Originated.

And Now, You Know The Basic Plot For This Epic Romp!

So, What’s Gonna Happen?

Did The Enemy Originate From Japan?

If So, Will BOND Be Able To Locate And Destroy Them In Time?

Or, Will The World Be Pushed Beyond Said Brink And Eventually Become A Giant Fireball In Space?

Hmm?

HMM?!?

Well…

…Wouldn’t Y’all Rather Watch It And Find-Out For Yourselves?!?

SURE YOU WOULD!!!

;)       :D       ;)

I Will Tell You It’s A Helluva Ride, My Peeps, And A Helluva Lot Of Fun!!!

Some Of My Favorite Parts?!?

“LITTLE NELLY”

(((Trust Me, You'll Get It When You See It!)))

KEN ADAM‘s Eye-Popping Production Design.

NANCY SINATRA Beautifully Singing The Film’s Theme Song.

The Wonderfully Amazing VOLCANO LAYER.

But, Most Of All, My Favorite Part Is The Big Reveal Of JAMES BOND‘s Arch Enemy/Nemesis, “ERNST STAVRO BLOFELD“, Played To Creepy, Evil Perfection By An ALL-TIME FAVE Of FAVES Actor…

DONALD PLEASENCE

!!! !!!! !!!

:D

As I Said, I Consider This Flick…

YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE

…To Be The Most Underrated Of All Of The BOND Flicks To Star…

SEAN CONNERY

…And I Think You’ll Totally Understand Why Once You’ve Checked-It-Out.

Since We Only Live But Once, My Peeps, You Should Sincerely Check-Out…

YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE

…Before You Finally Just, Ya Know, Check-Out.

Period.

Happy Movie Watching, My Peeps!!!

ENJOY YOURSELVES!!!

You Already KNOW I’m Doing So, Fo SHO Fo SHO!!!

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

(ALMOST) Random (MIDNIGHT) Movie Mention: “UNKNOWN” (2011)

UNKNOWN (2011)

UNKNOWN

…Stars MY MAIN MAN Himself…

LIAM NEESON

:D       :D       :D

…And Stars…

AIDAN QUINN

JANUARY JONES

DIANE KRUGER

&

FRANK Skeletor LANGELLA

:D       :D

It’s Also Produced By “Mr. UBER PRODUCER“…

JOEL SILVER

:D

Alright, My Peeps…

…Check-It-Out…

LIAM NEESON

Is

Dr. MARTIN HARRIS

…He Thinks?

But, Is He Really?

Well…

…We Really DON’T KNOW.

((wink wink))

You See, Shortly Into The Flick, He’s In A Car Crash.

He Hit His Head Hard.

He’s Now In The Hospital.

And, He’s Just Awakened From A Four (4) Day Coma.

He’s In Berlin.

He Doesn’t Speak German.

He Has No Official Identification.

He Might Know Some People, But We’re Not Really Sure.

He Just Remembers That He’s Dr. MARTIN HARRIS And That His Wife ((played by JANUARY JONES)) Doesn’t Know Where He Is, Nor What Has Happened.

He Then Remembers She Should Be At The Hotel They Were Originally Going To Stay In, And He’s Got To Go Find Her.

BUT…

…When He Does Get To The Hotel, And He Does Find His Supposed Wife…

…SHE DOESN’T CLAIM TO KNOW HIM AT ALL.

And Now Another Man ((played by AIDAN QUINN)) Shows-Up And Says That HE’s ActuallyDr. MARTIN HARRIS!!!

W.T.F.

?!?!?!?!?!?

And NOW The Flick Really REALLY Begins!!!

:D     :D     :D     :D

UNKNOWN

…Is Really A MUCH BETTER Flick Than A Lot Of Folks May Have Told You.

It Just Had The Bad Luck Of Coming Out After LIAM NEESON‘s Surprise Mega-Hit-Flick…

TAKEN

:(

UNKNOWN

…Is Fun.

It’s Exciting.

It’s Suspenseful.

It’s Clever.

It Was Good Enough For Me To Wanna Buy It, My Peeps.

I’d Say That’s PLENTY Good.

;)

Some People Told Me “UNKNOWN” Was Slow In Too Many Places, Which Ultimately Hurt The Overall Presentation.

To Those People, I Simply Say…

YOURE IMPATIENT!”

Dammit.

I Thought This Was A Classically Paced Thriller.

I Could EASILY See ALFRED HITCHCOCK Directing Something Like This.

HITCHCOCK Loved The Whole Idea Of The MISTAKEN IDENTITY Caper.

I Think He Would Have Relished In Directing This Flick.

Or, At Least, A Flick Like It.

I’m NOT Saying “UNKNOWN” Is The Greatest Flick Ever, My Peeps.

I AM Saying “UNKNOWN” Is A Lot Better Than You May Realize.

It’s Also Got MORE DEPTH And A THICKER PLOT Than People Gave It Credit For.

It’s Got MORE DEPTH And A THICKER PLOT Than “TAKEN” Had.

And That Is A FACT.

Period Period.

If You Haven’t Seen “UNKNOWN” Yet, Give It A Go, Kids.

If You’ve Seen It Once, And Didn’t Bother Going Another Round…

…Please…

…Do Yourself The Favor Of Checking-It-Out AGAIN.

It’ll Only Cost You 113-Minutes Of Your Life.

A Drop In The Bucket, Ya Know?!

;)

:D       :D

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

“Nobody Does It Better… Makes Me Feel Sad For The Rest…”

“…Nobody Does It Half As Good As You

Baby, You’re The Best…”

“…I Wasn’t Looking

But Somehow You Found Me

I Tried To Hide From Your Love-Light

CARLY SIMON

NOBODY DOES IT BETTER (THE SPY WHO LOVED ME)”

(1977)

-<<<{*}>>>-

So I’ve Oddly Had This Song On The Brain Alllllll Daaaaaay Long.

It Was The First Song I Really Wanted To Hear When I Awoke…

…And I’m Listening To It As I Type This, Now.

It Is A Truly Wonderful Song, Yes, But It’s More Than That.

This Song Was Also On-Board To Usher In A Whole New Era Of JAMES BOND

…So To Speak.

THE SPY WHO LOVED ME

…Was THE BOND FLICK That Firmly Cemented…

ROGER MOORE

…Into The Lead Role.

THE SPY WHO LOVED ME

…Is An Exceptional Film, And One Of The All-Time Greats…

…But Would It Have Been So WITHOUT This Glorious Theme Song?!

Honestly, I’m Not So Sure.

I Love The Film.

There’s No Question Of That.

BUT…

…One Of My Favorite Parts Of The Whole Flick Is Watching The Opening-Credits.

WHY?!

Because I Love Seeing The Name…

ROGER MOORE

…Coming Along With The Tune Of…

NOBODY DOES IT BETTER

by CARLY SIMON

!!! !!! !!!

I Actually Get Schoolboy Goosebumps When It Happens!

And It Happens Each And Every Time!

I’ve Never Honestly Understood Why.

The Only Other Times This Has Ever Happened Because Of A Movie Was…

…Oh Yeah…

…OTHER BOND FLICKS!!!

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

…My Fave Fave Flick Of The Whole BOND Series With A Song I Simply Love…

…Or…

A VIEW TO A KILL

…Yet Another Favorite BOND Flick With A WONDERFUL Opening Song!!!

And On And On AND ON!!!

HA!

I Wonder What It Is?!

What Is It About Seeing BOND And Hearing A Great Song That Can Make Me Just Go Gooey?!

I Dunno.

I Just Dunno.

But I Will Say This…

…It Happened Again Last Night While I Watched…

SKYFALL

…And Sang Along With…

ADELE

!!! !!! !!!

OF COURSE OF COURSE, Fo SHO Fo SHO!!!

I’d Appreciate YOUR THOUGHTS, My Peeps.

WHAT IS IT?!

WHAT IS IT ABOUT BOND And A GREAT OPENING THEME That Gets Us All A Goin‘!?!?!?!?!

ANY THOUGHTS, My Peeps?!

ANY THOUGHTS AT ALL?!

:D       ;)       :D

Sooo… …What To Say About The JAMES BOND Adventure “SKYFALL” (2012)???

Well

Honestly

I LOVED IT.

Period.

I Enjoyed The Ever-Living-Hell Out Of It, To Be Fo SHO.

It Was New.

It Was Fresh.

It Was Unlike Any JAMES BOND Adventure I’d Ever Had The Privilege Of Seeing Before.

I Kept Trying To Make Comparisons To Other BOND Flicks As I Watched Along…

…And I Sincerely Found That Next To Bloody Impossible.

But I Did…

…I Tried To Muster All My Powers, Madams And Misters.

And I Simply Couldn’t Do It.

That’s Just How Fresh And Engrossing This Adventure…

SKYFALL

…Actually Was.

It Had Some Elements Of…

DR. NO

…And…

FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE

…But Also Some…

LICENCE TO KILL

…And Even A Little…

GOLDENEYE

…Yet…

…In The End…

…It Was EXACTLY What I Wanted…

…It Was JAMES BOND As I’d NEVER Seen Him Before!!!

KUDOS, Movie Makers…

…KUDOS, INDEED!!!

:D

They Totally Just Went For It.

They Totally Just Went Off The Map.

They Totally Just Sold Me That JAMES BOND Does Indeed Continue To Live Onward Into The 21ST-Century…

…And He Has Plenty Of Room To Grow Grow GROW!!!

Now How The Hell Could One Ask For More Than That?!?!?

EXACTLY, My Peeps!!!

You Couldn’t.

They Gave Us What We Wanted…

…And Even A Little Bit More.

It Was Tough.

It Was Gritty.

It Was Edgy.

It Was Drama Filled AND Action Packed.

It Was Cold AND Dark…

…Yet…

…Retained Its Sense-Of-Humor.

It Was NOT…

CASINO ROYALE

…Nor…

QUANTUM OF SOLACE

…It Was Its Own.

It Was Imaginative.

It Had Its Twists And Turns.

In Short…

…It Was THE BEST BOND FLICK In The Past 30 YEARS.

PERIOD.

For ME…

SKYFALL

…Ranks Right Up There With…

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

(My Fave Fave)

…And…

THUNDERBALL

(The Best BOND Adventure)

!!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!!

It Was THAT Good, My Peeps.

JAVIER BARDEM

…Was Twisted…

…Was Evil…

…Was Believable…

…Was A SPOT-ON-PERFECT BOND-BADDIE.

I Don’t Think They Could Have Cast His Part Any Better.

And I Do Believe That…

DANIEL CRAIG

…Totally Cemented Himself As OUR BOND

…As MY BOND

…As THE BEST BOND.

He Impressed The Shit Out Of Me, My Peeps.

So…

…All-In-All…

…It Was Worth It, My Peeps.

I Don’t Hit The Theater Too Often Anymore.

The Price And The Hassle Have Simply Tarnished The Experience For Me.

It’s Sad…

…But It’s True…

…And I Feel It’s The Same Way For A Lot Of Y’all.

SKYFALL

…To ME…

…Was TOTALLY WORTH ALL OF IT!

If You’re Going To Hit-Up The Big Screen For ANYTHING This Fall…

…Well Then…

SKYFALL

…Should Be That Flick.

PERIOD PERIOD.

Do I Think It’s “THE BEST BOND ADVENTURE” Of Them All?

No.

Was This “MY FAVORITE BOND ADVENTURE” Of Them All?

No.

Could Either Of Those Statements Be Easily Argued, And Potentially Overturned?!

YES YES YES, INDEED!!!

I’ll Close By Simply Saying This…

…If You LOVE LOVE LOVE JAMES BOND

…You’ll Simply LOVE LOVE LOVE…

SKYFALL

!!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!!

!!! !!! !!!

:D       :D       :D

“I Just Looove “MOONRAKER”.” Said More Lovingly Than Should Be Allowed. =) -BRADLEY

BRADLEY Is Really Cool, I Promise. The “MOONRAKER” Fawning Is Purely True, Yet, Induced By A Love Affair Fascination With ROGER MOORE. :|

What’s On NOW!?!: “FOR YOUR EYES ONLY” (1981) Starring ROGER MOORE As JAMES BOND 007!!!

The Best Of The Best Of The Bunch.

That’s How I Categorize This Flick…

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

(1981)

…Starring…

ROGER MOORE

…As…

JAMES BOND007

…In What Would Be His Fifth BOND Adventure.

They Say The Third Time’s The Charm…

…And For ROGER

…The Third Time Was More Of A Staple-Point In The World That Is JAMES BOND.

His Third Adventure…

THE SPY WHO LOVED ME

(1977)

…Really Cemented ROGER As BOND.

It Was His Best To Date…

…And The Best BOND Adventure Up To That Point.

I Loved It.

And Then I Saw This One…

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

…And I Was Totally Sold.

It Is…

…By Far Far FAR…

…The Best BOND Of Them All.

At Least…

…In This Blogger’s Humble Opinion.

I Honestly Don’t Know What All To Say Here.

I’ve Been In A Decent Mood…

…I’ve Just Felt Like Arse.

What More Can Be Said?

I’m Just In Pure BOND Mode, Today.

I Have All Of His Adventures On The DVD…

…But Only A Few On The Blu-ray.

I Only Purchased The Ones I Love The Most…

…And That Were Available At The Time.

Mainly…

…Those Available Were…

PIERCE BROSNAN

BOND Adventures…

…Of Which Only One…

GOLDENEYE

(1995)

…Is On My Target List.

I Simply Love…

GOLDENEYE

…Though That’s The Only BROSNAN Flick I Can Honestly Say That About.

Anyway…

…I’m Going To Get Back To Watching…

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

…And Once It’s Over, I’m Going To Watch…

THUNDERBALL

(1965)

…Which Is My Fave Fave From…

SEAN CONNERY

!!! !!!

I Know Everyone Says…

GOLDFINGER

(1964)

…Is The Very Best, Especially Of The CONNERY Flicks.

BUT…

…I Tend To Disagree.

(Of Course)

To ME…

THUNDERBALL

…Is Another Of Those That Is By Far Far FAR The Best Of The Best Of The Bunch.

I LOVE Me Some…

SEAN CONNERY

…And…

THUNDERBALL

…Is My Utmost Favorite!!!

ANYWAY…

…’Tis Time For Me To Kick-It-Back And Enjoy My Flicks.

These Flicks Are GREAT…

…But Having Them On The Blu-ray Is EVEN BETTER!!!

So It’s Time To Enjoy, My Peeps.

Time To Enjoy, Indeed!!!

:D       ;)       :D

(Not So) Random (At All) Movie Mention: Joe Carnahan’s “THE GREY” (2011) Starring LIAM NEESON! ! !

THE GREY

(2011)

…Is Much More Than Just An Action/Drama/Horror Flick.

It’s So SO Much More.

It IS A Work Of Adrenaline-Pumping ACTON.

It IS A Work Of Wrenching, Heart-Felt DRAMA.

It IS A Work Of HORROR And TERROR.

BUT…

…It’s ALSO A Wonderful Work Of ART.

Period.

Y’all Already Know I’m A Huge Fanboy Of…

LIAM NEESON

…And This Flick Takes That Fact And Cements It Even More So Than It Was Before.

I Still Consider LIAM NEESON To Be One Of The Most Underrated Actors Of The Past 30 Years…

…And I Sincerely Feel…

THE GREY

…To Be A Totally Underrated Flick.

Period Period.

NEESON Is “OTTWAY

…A Dark, Brooding, Loner Of A Character.

He Suffers Deeply Over The Loss Of His Wife…

…And Is, Therefore, Supremely Depressed.

So Depressed Is He, That He’s Suicidal.

He Simply Can’t Do It.

He Can’t Pull The Trigger…

…Neither Figuratively, Nor Literally.

He Has All But Given-Up On Life…

…And He Can Barely Find The Will To Carry On.

SUDDENLY…

…Following A Jet-Plane Crash In The Wind And Snow Swept Alaskan Wilderness…

…He (“OTTWAY“) Is Thrust Into The Position Of Life Saver For AND Leader Of A Small Group Of Oil-Drilling Roughnecks.

BUT…

…The Crash Isn’t The Worst Of It All.

The Survivors Are Now Being Stalked/Hunted By A Pack Of Large WOLVES, Thirsty For Blood.

It Quickly Becomes A Life & Death Situation For The Few Remaining Men…

…A Situation Where None Are Likely To Survive!

*** ***

YES, My Peeps, I’m A Convert Within The Realm That Is…

THE GREY

Period Period Period.

It May Be Action Packed AND Brutal…

…But It’s Also Poetic, Thought-Provoking, AND Beautiful.

The Film’s Writer AND Director…

JOE CARNAHAN

…Has Written An Amazing Story…

…Both Simple AND Complex…

…And Has Directed It With Style AND Care.

The Landscapes Are Gorgeously, Amazingly Shot…

…Adding To The Visual Splendor Of The Flick…

…Along With Adding Deep Deep Feelings Of EXTREME ISOLATION!

Feelings That Only Make The Story Become Even BETTER!

You Know What, My Peeps…

…After Having Watched…

THE GREY

…For The Third Time, I’m Convinced The Ending Of The Film Is Much MUCH More Thought Provoking AND Honest Than I’d Originally Given It Credit For.

In Fact…

…The End Of The Flick Is The Biggest Reason WHY I’m Calling It “Art Flick”…

…As It Leaves You To Ponder The Possibilities…

…And Yet, You’re (ALMOST) Sure You Know How The Story Will Play Out.

You’re (ALMOST) Sure Of What The Final Outcome Would Likely Be.

But You Don’t Know…

…And Ya Know What, My Peeps…

…That’s Perfectly Acceptable To Me.

This Is A Flick That Totally Deserves To Be Seen…

…But Seen More Than Just Once.

One Viewing Simply Isn’t Enough To Totally Appreciate What Has Been Experienced.

I LOVE…

THE GREY

…And Can Now Count It Among My Fave-Faves From…

LIAM NEESON

:)       :D       :)

PLEASE, My Peeps…

…PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE…

…Give This Flick A Second Chance.

If You Enjoy It, Great.

If You’re Unsure, Or Even Disliked It, A Second Chance Is At Least Deserved.

Even ME…

…I’ve Previously Admitted To Being Unsure If I Liked It After Having Seen It For The First Time.

But The Second Time It Was Better…

…And The Third Time I Was Sold.

I’m Happy With Myself For Having Given…

THE GREY

…Another Chance To Impress Me…

…And It Did That Very Thing.

ENJOY, My Peeps…

…ENJOY, INDEED!!!

:D       :D       :D       :D

What’s On Now!?: “SPACE RAIDERS” (1983)

Have You Ever Watched A Flick Where More Than Half Of It Was Pieced Together From The Shots, Used And Unused, Of Another Flick?!?

Well Then, My Peeps…

…You’re In For A Treat!!!

:D

The Flick I’m Eluding To Is…

SPACE RAIDERS

(1983)

…Starring…

VINCE EDWARDS

…And…

DAVID MENDENHALL

…And Produced By The King Of Schlock, Himself…

ROGER CORMAN

!!! !!!! !!!

:D

SPACE RAIDERS

…Is One Of The Few Flicks On V.H.S. I Still Have AND Enjoy.

Most Of The Others Were Either Sold, Or Scrapped, Or Simply Given Away.

I Really Just Couldn’t Part With This One.

It’s A Personal Fave-Fave…

…And In Cherry Condition!

So Why Part With It, Ya Know?!

EXACTLY!!

I Knew You’d Agree With Me!!

;)

SPACE RAIDERS

…Is The Story Of A 10-Year-Old Boy Named PETER (Played By DAVID MENDENHALL) Who…

…During An Intense Battle On His Home Planet…

…Stows Away Aboard The Ship Of The Raiding Party.

He’s Then Considered Their Captive…

…Though, As It Turns Out, All The Raiders Really Want To Do Is Get The Boy Back Home Again

VINCE EDWARDS Is “HAWK”…

…The Leader Of The Raiders!

He’s A Hard-Boiled, Old-School Military Officer Whom Has Taken To Raiding Corporation Sites All Over The Galaxy.

He Knows That Having A Corporation Child On-Board Is Going To Bring Nothing But Trouble, Or Worse…

…So He Decides The Best Thing To Do Is To Just Get PETER Home Again.

However…

…That Ain’t Gonna Be Easy!

Que SCI-FI ACTION And ADVENTURE!!!

:D

SPACE RAIDERS

…Is Honestly A Better Flick Than Anyone Ever Wanted To Admit.

Nearly ALL Of The Secondary Film Shots Were Taken Directly From Those Secondary Shots Of Another ROGER CORMAN Flick…

BATTLE BEYOND THE STARS

…No Foolies!!!

Every Scene Showing Spaceships…

…Battles Between The Good Guy And Bad Guy Ships…

…Alien Landscapes…

…Etc Etc…

…Were All Scenes Shot For…

BATTLE BEYOND THE STARS

!!! !!!

The Only Scenes That Were Original Were Those Shot With The Cast Of…

SPACE RAIDERS

…And That’s It.

Everything Else Is Recycled Material.

:D

Yeah.

So You Can Easily Understand Why So Many People Disliked This Flick.

Right?!

RIGHT!!

;)

HOWEVER…

…Regardless Of That Minorly-Major’ish Fact…

SPACE RAIDERS

…Is Still Fun Flick!

Always Remember, Kids…

…When BRADLEY ALAN Watches A Flick…

…He Always Tries To Watch It As Though He’s NEVER SEEN ANOTHER FLICK.

Period.

I Feel That’s The Only Way To Truly Judge AND Enjoy Something.

You Can’t Go Into Any Movie, TV Show, Documentary, Etc, Thinking About All That Has Come Before.

You Just Can’t.

You Have To Take Each One…

…And Then Quietly Observe.

If You Can Manage To Do That, You’ll Find It’s Much Easier To Decided Whether You Do Like Something, Or Do Not.

Most People Hate…

SPACE RAIDERS

…And Refer To It As “RECYCLED JUNK” That Sincerely Should Have Never Been Made.

BUT…

…For ME…

SPACE RAIDERS

…Is A Nifty Little Number That Always Reminds Me Of Being A Kid.

As A Kid, It Was One Of My All-Time Faves.

These Days…

…Yeah…

…Some Of That Wonder And Excitement Brought About From Childhood Has Worn Off.

I Can’t Deny That.

BUT…

…It’s Still Important To Me.

That’s Why I Kept This V.H.S. Edition.

To Remind Me Of What Things Were Like Back In The Day.

Those Memories Are Priceless.

So Even Just Looking At The Tape Itself Is Enough, Sometimes.

Do You Have Anything Like That, My Peeps?!

Something From Your Past That’s Out-Dated And Mainly-Useless…

…Yet Makes You Happy When You See It…

…Or Hold It…

…Or Touch It…

…Or…

…In This Instance…

…Watch It?!

I’ll Bet You Do!!!

PRICELESS, My Peeps.

PRICELESS, Indeed!

:D
