Summer is officially here, and so is my appetite for beer, fried chicken and exceptionally bad action movies from the VHS era. I'm talking crap action auteurs like Sidaris, Shervan, Prior, Firstenberg, Golan, Glickenhaus, Santiago, Zito. Perhaps some '90s John Woo and Michael Bay.
All summer long I will be sweating out the blistering 100+ temps by staying indoors as much as possible and watching steroidal men and women shoot guns onscreen at each other instead of at me (hopefully). Action speaks louder than words here, so expect all "reviews" to come in the form of hastily-edited video compilations or action-packed GIFs. I'm fooling around with some new editing software these days and feeling a little word-averse.
CdeC's patented Chicken Drumstick Rating System will rank films from 🍗 to 🍗🍗🍗🍗🍗.
One drumstick means "don't bother...it's a turkey." Five drumsticks means it's the pinnacle of craptacular summer action enjoyment, the Citizen Kane of '80s-'90s VHS sleaze. Let's have some greasy, heavily carbonated and carbo-loaded fun, shall we?
