(Ep. 109): Killing American Style – Movie Commentary: September 2018

Killing American style
1990 ‧ Thriller/Action ‧ 1h 30m

Well it’s not Samurai Cop…

Welcome back to the Simplistic Reviews Movie Commentary! Today we pop in another Amir Shervan film, Killing American Style. It’s the 80’s and of course Amir will recycle from his masterpiece Samurai Cop; location, music and beefy men with long beautiful hair.  The terrible acting mix with cheesy fight scene is the best part along with its nonexistent script. Killing American Style is no Samurai Cop. It’s not as funny nor crazy but still a entertaining film except for one thing – rape.

The amount of creepiness is beyond anything we have seen before. There really isn’t a need for rape in a movie, especially when the story line doesn’t call for it. A simple walk into the room with the door closing gets it point across, what we get here is out of control and unnecessary. Killing American Style is a fun Sunday film to drink and laugh at, just look at that title. But when your looking for another Samurai Cop don’t look at Killing American Style, it’s in a league of its own.

As descendants of the original Three Musketeers, Peter Porthos (Thomas Gottschalk), John Smith D’Artagnan (David Hasselhoff) and Anne-Marie Athos (Alison Doody) are continuing the chivalrous tradition of protecting those who can’t protect themselves, carrying it into the modern age.

Initial release: December 1, 1992 (Germany)
Director: John Paragon
Production company: Motion Picture Corporation of America
Screenplay: John Paragon, Joel Surnow

Plug that VHS player back in! It time for some David Hasselhoff! That’s right, today we watch the Ring of the Musketeers. A made for TV film that… well… nobody remembers.  But when you have a modern day (90’s) Musketeers film that has a cast that contains the Hoff, Cheech Marin, Alison Doody, John Rhys-Davies, Corbin Bernsen, Timothy Stack, Ricky Jay and Branscombe Richmond. You pretty much stop whatever you are doing and pop this VHS in.
So fix that tracking and enjoy that mono audio (yes this VHS wasn’t in stereo) and repeat, Unus pro omnibus, omnes pro uno! Because we do this together ladies and gents! This is the Simplistic Reviews Movie Commentary of Ring of the Musketeers!

Well… like DJ mentioned, we kept going with these damn DCU movie commentaries. We didn’t really want to watch JL but we had to get it over with.

But hey it is still better then Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice, that’s something right? Don’t worry we will get back to the crappy but fun films that include a good old T&A drinking game.

So sit back and enjoy a okay film that’s somewhat coherent and looks a ton better then Dawn of Justice. Grab that beer and laugh at the terrible CG… and that laughable mustache removal…man that was horrible.

Oh and we added a new gimmick. Starting with Justice League, after every movie commentary we’ll spin a wheel to find out what we watch next. Fun stuff!

Today we took a spin on our new wheel!!!

We spun The Wheel of Doom (TM) a collection of request films by viewers like you!

…and we get something odd. Hint: It involves the Musketeers and David Hasselhoff…yep the HOFF…nothing but fun…

Hey did you know: Justice League is the fourth-most-expensive film ever made. Amazing is it not?! wikipedia.org

(Ep. 101): Undefeatable – Movie Commentary: Match 2018

Undefeatable

R

 1994 ‧ Thriller/Action ‧ 1h 35m 4.1/10 · IMDb

The boys of Simplistic Reviews are back! Let’s be honest you never believed Ep. 100 was our last… did you? No we can’t stop with all these crappy movies out there. Plus the current world we live in needs some terrible grotesque jokes.

So sit back, turn off the lights and enjoy some undefeatable puns…no…they suck…its pretty sad.

Kristi Jones (Cynthia Rothrock) who, along with her gang, take part in Mafia-run street fights to earn money for her sister’s college education. Kristi’s sister hopes to become a doctor and pay for Kristi’s education.

Meanwhile, an underground fighter by the name of “Stingray” (Don Niam) is left by his scared wife, Anna, after raping her, and vows to find her. Stingray has suffered from abandonment issues since early childhood and this new trauma triggers a psychotic break from reality. He begins to kidnap women who resemble his ex-wife, and subsequently tortures them and gouges their eyes out before returning their bodies to the crime scene. Kristi’s sister becomes one of the victims, so Kristi tracks down Stingray with the help of police officer Nick DiMarco (John Miller), who might just be falling for her, alongside her sister’s psychiatry tutor Jennifer (Donna Jason) and Nick’s partner Mike (Gerald Klein).

They eventually track down Stingray, who has kidnapped Jennifer, and fight in a warehouse where he escapes after shooting and killing Mike. Jennifer’s injuries, though relatively minor, require that she be admitted to the hospital where she is again kidnapped by Stingray who is impersonating a doctor. Kristi and Nick chase him to a storage area where the three do battle, mostly through hand-to-hand combat. Stingray is bested by the pair, having both eyes gouged out in the process. He’s then suspended by the eye-sockets with a meat hook, killing him.

The final scene shows with Kristi and her friends visiting her late sister’s resting place to inform her that Stingray has finally been defeated. It is revealed that Kristi has somehow enrolled her former gang in college to give them a chance at a better life, and that Kristi has also been enrolled in college by Nick. The film ends with the group engaging in an impassioned four way high-five.

Anonymous 2 says – “Это лучшее, что говорит г-н Т. Россия никогда не разговаривала с президентом. Я хочу сделать этот факт, как вы говорите. Мы никогда не были в одной комнате вместе, как мы могли бы проводить выборы. Россия ничего не знает о оснащении. Мы считаем, что американская политика ошибается и составляет это. Россия любит, мы любим только. Мы знаем, что Америка нашла много фотографий и доказательств, связывающих Россию с президентом, но все эти фальшивые новости, которые вы знаете? Так что мы едим в том же KFC. Это преступление в вашей стране? Все поддельные новости. Ладно, мне нужно идти. Ты готов Дональд?
