-Science Created Him. Now CHUCK NORRIS Must Destroy Him.- It’s “SILENT RAGE” (1982) My Peeps!!!

Alright, My Peeps…

…In This Wild Little Flick…

CHUCK NORRIS

…Is A Tough-As-Nails Sheriff Of A Small Town In Good Ole Texas…

…And Now He’s Facing-Off Against A Mentally Deranged Psycho Killer Whom Is, As Far As We All Know, Totally INDESTRUCTIBLE!!!

No Shit, Sheriffs!

CHUCK NORRIS

…In A “B-Movie” ACTION/HORROR/SLASHER/SCI-FI/THRILLER!!!

I KNOW, RIGHT!!!

WOOT!!!

I Promise, I Couldn’t Make This Up If I Tried!

Well…

…Ok…

…I Could…

…But I’m So SO NOT!!!

Our Killer Is “JOHN KIRBY”…

(Played With A Brute Viciousness By Mr. BRIAN LIBBY)

…A Man Who Was Recently SHOT-TO-PIECES By The Police After He Took An AX TO HIS FAM!

He Died On The Operating Table…

…Under The Careful Care Of Three Doctors/Surgeons/Geneticists…

(Played By RON SILVER, STEVEN KEATS, And WILLIAM FINLEY)

…Who Are Now Using “KIRBY” As Their Ginni-Pig For A Genetic Super-Healing Serum.

Guess What?!

IT WORKS!!

Only, Not In How They’d Planned.

“KIRBY” Has A Totally Static-Brian, And A Body That Can Perpetually Heal Heal HEAL!!!

Do You See Where This Is Going, Kiddies?!?!?

SURE YOU DO!!!

“KIRBY” Flies The Coop And Sets Out On A Murderous Rampage…

CHUCK NORRIS

It’s A KILL Or BE KILLED Type Of Situation, Fo SHO!!!

SILENT RAGE

…Is Easily One Of the Most Fun, Most Awesome, And Most Underrated Flicks In The Realm That Is…

CHUCK NORRIS

!!! !!! !!!

And, I Mean, Come On, At Least With This Flick You Know EXACTLY WHY The Killer Just WON’T DIE!!!

That’s Gotta Count For Something, Right???

RIGHT!!!

β€œTHE BEST” -Vs- β€œMY FAVORITE”: Episode II: “It’s All In The Reflexes.”

Howdy, Kids.

What’s Shakin’?

Yeah…

…Not Much Here, Either.

T’Is Another Of Those Mornings Where I’m Awake Way Too Damned Early.

It’s My Fault, Though.

Went To Bed Too Damned Early.

What’Ya’Gonna’Do, Ya Know?!

Exactly My Point!!

Anyway…

…I Digress.

Let’s Get To The Meat Of This Thing, Shall We?!

LETS!!

In This Episode…

…I Wish To Cover A Couple Modern-Day Directors.

I’ll Begin With A Personal Favorite Of Mine…

…And Someone I Know Some Of You Really Enjoy…

JOHN CARPENTER

πŸ™‚

So…

…What’s JOHN CARPENTER‘s BEST Work?!

Well…

…There Are Two Schools Of Thought On This One.

Some Believe His BEST Work To Be…

HALLOWEEN

(1978)

…And It Is Hard To Scoff At That One.

I LOVE The Original…

HALLOWEEN

…Very VERY Much So.

The Other School…

…However…

…Would Say…

THE THING

(1982)

…Is…

THE BEST

…Of His Work.

That One Is Even Harder To Scoff At…

…At Least For ME…

…Because I’m Of That School.

I Think…

THE THING

…Is His BEST Work.

.Period.

BUT…

…Are Either Of Those Films…

MY FAVORITE

??? ???

No.

I Love Them Both Dearly…

…And Have Owned Copies Of Both (in one format or another) For The Past Two-Decades.

So What Is…

MY FAVORITE

???????

That Would Be…

BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA

(1986)

πŸ˜€

Yes…

…I’m VERY Well Aware…

BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA

…Is An Inferior Film To Both…

HALLOWEEN

…And…

THE THING

…So You Don’t Have To Remind Me Of That Fact.

I’m With You, My Peeps.

I Am.

BUT…

BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA

…Is The Flick Attached To The Most Memories.

It’s The Film I Never Could Get Enough Of.

It’s The Film I Sit-Down To Watch With My Nephew When We Both Need A Bit Of Escapist Adventure.

It’s The Film I Had To Place A Special Order For While In The Navy Because It Sold-Out At The Video Store The First Day It Was Released.

No Foolies, My Peeps.

HALLOWEEN

???

LOVE IT!

πŸ™‚

THE THING

???

LOVE IT LOVE IT!

πŸ™‚

BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA

???

LOVE IT SO SO SO MUCH IT’S CRAZY!!!

πŸ˜€

*** *** *** *** *** *** ***

The Second Director I Wish To Cover Is Another Modern Fan Favorite…

WES CRAVEN

πŸ™‚

So What’s WES CRAVEN‘s BEST Work?

???

Well…

…Again…

…There Are Two Schools Of Thought At Play, Here.

Some Say It’s His Original Directorial Work…

THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT

(1972)

…And I Can Understand And AGREE With That Line Of Thought.

It IS A Truly Powerful Work, To Say The Least.

It’s Gritty.

It’s Nasty.

It’s So Damned Realistic You Feel Like You’re Watching A Snuff-Film.

It Would Get My Vote As His BEST.

The Other School Would Easily Say…

A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET

(1984)

…Is…

THE BEST

…Which Is Also Hard Not To Agree With.

A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET

…Is An Iconic Piece Of Work…

…Just Like JOHN CARPENTER‘s…

HALLOWEEN

…Both Of Which Have Spawned What Seems Like An Endless Stream Of Sequels.

.Period.

BUT BUT BUT…

…Are Either…

THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT

…Or…

A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET

MY FAVORITE

…Of His Works?

??? ??? ???

Nope.

That Honor Goes To…

SWAMP THING

(1982)

πŸ˜€

Now Don’t Get To Laughing At Me So Soon!

I Do Admit…

…It’s An Odd Choice.

It’s Drastically Inferior To Both Of The Preceding Flicks…

…Sure Sure Sure…

…But Does That Change My Feeling???

NOT. IN. THE. SLIGHTEST.

.PERIOD.

SWAMP THING

…Has Been My Personal Favorite Since The Beginning.

It’s Another I’ve Owned (in one format or another) Since It’s Initial Release On VHS.

I Would Venture To Guess I’ve Seen…

SWAMP THING

…Perhaps…

…Oh…

…412 Times?!

Perhaps Even…

…Oh…

….4,012 Times?!

I Don’t Really Know.

I Just Know It’s A LOT A LOT A LOT!!!

SWAMP THING

…Was A Childhood Hero Of Mine…

…And He Remains So To This Very Day.

Next Time My Nephew Is Here With Me, I Plan To Bust-Out The…

SWAMP THING

…And Have Him Check-It-Out.

I Think It’s A Flick He’d Truly Get A Major Kick Out Of.

FO SHO, My Peeps!!!

πŸ˜€

*** *** ***

*** *** *** *** *** *** ***

Was That FUN For Y’all?!

I SURE HOPE SO!!!

It Was Fun For Me, Anyway!!!

πŸ˜‰

Please Try To Enjoy The Day, Kiddies.

Y’all Hang-In-There.

Take Care.

Be Good.

See Me Soon.

And Talk To Me Sooner.

L8r, Taters!!!

πŸ˜€

What’s On Now?! CLINT EASTWOOD’s “FIREFOX” (1982)

One Of My Favorite Flicks Of The 1980s…

FIREFOX

…Was Released In 1982…

…And…

…Is One Of The Most Fun “Cold War” Flicks Ever Made.

.Period.

FIREFOX

…Was Produced By…

…Directed By…

…AND…

…Stars…

CLINT EASTWOOD

What’s The Mission, You Ask?!

To Steal The Soviet Russian’s Latest War-Machine…

…The MIG 31…

…Code-Name…

FIREFOX

πŸ˜€

It’s The Fastest…

…Most Deadly Fighter-Aircraft Ever Built…

…And The Ole U.S. Of. A. Wants It BADLY!

!!! !!!! !!!

So…

CLINT Is Going Undercover…

…And Is Going To Try To Snatch-Up The “FIREFOX” Or Die Trying!!!

Will He Succeed?!?

Hmm.

Well…

…I Suppose I COULD Tell Y’all…

…I Really COULD…

…But…

…I Ain’t Gonna Spoil The Fun!!!

FIREFOX

…Is A Very Worthy “Cold War” Adventure…

…With Pretty Awesome Special Effects (for their day) By “STAR WARS” Special Effects Oscar Winner…

JOHN DYKSTRA

!!! !!!! !!!

If You’ve Seen This Flick…

…That’s Cool Beans.

However…

…I Know The Bulk Of Y’all Haven’t.

It’s One Of CLINT‘s More Forgotten Action Yarns…

…But That Doesn’t Mean It Deserves Any Less Of Your Sweet Sweet Lovin’!!!

Ya Know Ya Know, My Peeps?!

SURE YOU DO!!!

"YOU'VE GOT ANOTHER THING COMIN'" Off The JUDAS PRIEST Album "SCREAMING FOR VENGEANCE" From 1982! A True CLASSIC, And An ALL-TIME FAVE-Of-FAVES Fo FLIPPIN' SHO! It Was Actually The Very First "Metal" Song Of MY LIFE. And It Has Been An ALL-TIME FAVE-Of-FAVES Since The Very Beginning. When Someone Says... "You Have 3 Seconds To Name A "Metal" Song, And GO!"

BILLY JOEL

Is Something I Remember From The Beginning Of MY MEMORY.

It Came Out In 1982.

My VERY-FIRST MEMORIES Begin Then.

We Had A Tornado Come Through My Hometown That Summer.

But…

…I Don’t Honestly Remember The Tornado.

That Was In May, 1982.

My Memories Begin In September, 1982.

It’s A Smell.

No Joke, My Peeps.

It’s The Smell Of Wood.

FRESH WOOD.

My Conscious Mind STARTS In September, 1982.

And It’s The Smell Of The FRESH WOOD…

…Being Used To BUILD Our NEW HOME.

The First Home Was A TOTAL Loss.

We Got Lucky.

We Got DAMN Lucky, Actually.

And I Don’t Remember A Moment Of It.

But…

…I Can Remember That Smell From September.

Anytime I’m NEAR Some FRESH WOOD…

…That Smell Hits Me.

I Catch-It So So So Fast After I’m Around It.

But…

…EVERY-SINGLE-TIME I Smell The Stuff…

…I’m FORCED To DEEPLY Inhale.

To Me…

…That Smell…

…Is…

THE

MOST AMAZING SMELL EVER EVER EVER.

I’m TOTALLYΒ NOTJOKIN‘, My Peeps.

I’ve Never Been Affected By ANYTHING

…At ANYTIME

ANYWHERE

…Like THAT Smell.

NOW…

…Back To My Point Of This Bloggin’ing.

My Mother Had Billy Joel In The Car.

And I Remember Singing It With Her.

And I Always Told Her How Great Her Voice Was When She’d Sing With Him.

That…

…And THE VIDEO For “PRESSURE”…

…Is THE FIRST VIDEO I REMEMBER…

…EVER EVER EVER.

Yep.

That Video.

And I Remember Saying To Myself…

“Sheesh. That Rug ATE THAT GUY!”

And My Parents Would Say…

“YEP. So Watch Out For The Rugs.”

And It Became A GAME To US.

I’d Be On The Couch Somewhere…

…And They’d Have A RUG Under It…

…Or…

…There Was A RUG Under The Coffee Table IN-FRONT-OF The Couch…

…And I’d Say…

“I Can’t Get Up, That RUG MIGHT GET ME!”

…And They’d Say…

“YEP. What’Ya’Gonna’Do?”

…To Which My Reply Was…

“I’ll Have To JUMP IT!”

…Or…

“I Don’t Know If I Can Reach The Other-Side!?”

And I’d Try To Exit The Couch…

…WITHOUT Touching The RUG.

All Because Of THAT VIDEO.

So YES

“PRESSURE”

By

BILLY JOEL

…Has A Special Place In My Heart…

…In My Mind…

…And My “MIND?!“.

Oh…

…And I ROCK At PRESSURE.

It’s The Every-Single-Day Stuff I Struggle With.

When Someone Says…

“WHO DID THIS THING RIGHT HERE?!?!”

…I’d Say…

“NOT ME!”

…Even Though…

…I Either KNEW I Did It…

…Or…

…I WASN’T SURE IF I’d Done It.

It’s ALWAYS The EASY STUFF, Too.

Sheesh, I Tell You.

Sheesh, INDEED.

Oh… …And… …Uh… …Here’s Another Photo Of Billy Joel.
