R.O.T.O.R. (1987)

I needed 5 attempts over the last year  to make it through the first 10 minutes of ROTOR, but the worst was still ahead of me.

Crazy dialog with weird punchlines, illogical scene placement and length,  a funny tinfoil robot in a tiny police hat, sound great…

…unfortunately all that is painful to watch.

The digital remaster on BD does not make it better.

One of the movies that you have more fun talking about than actually watching it.

The guy who player ROTOR played also 3 more characters (according to IMDB).

RLM made an episode of BOTW about it.

Father’s day is a great Astron-6/Troma Entertainment  cooperation result, it felt like watching a good old Troma movie but with a breath of fresh air. Really enjoyable, great gags, unpredictable plot twists and even more.

 

Manborg  is a different kind of fun than Father’s day,  if you don’t get annoyed by crappy special effects, you will be pleased with what Manborg has to give you.

Zombie hunter is a different story, it has nice a nice poster and a very promising trailer, but don’t expect too much. Sometimes the trailer is better than the movie itself.  (Yes, Danny Trejo has a  cameo as Father Jesus.)

Maniac

I had already mentioned the movie here, before I watched it. All my expectations have been fulfilled. A re-watch worth the movie is. Great tribute to the original film, and the whole  psycho-killer-exploitation genre. Forget Fro*do, Frank is from now on the man who’s face will pop-up in your memory, after you have heard Elijah’s name.

Cobra Nero

A Fred William flick. Is every movie with him a blaxploitation movie ? I don’t think so. Two things about that movie that I like: the poster, the trailer.

Oh, and there is the car-accident-windshiled-flight scene at the end of the movie, so let’s make it 3.

The also have made 3 more followups to this movie.
