This one was actually a lot harder to write. I feel like the very positive things people had to say really raised the bar in my head. In the end, I just tried to sit down and write it. (For the first episode, check this out: http://www.giantbomb.com/forums/general-discussion/30/agent-morgan-style-movie-analysis/412667/#15 ) Enjoy! Look for another in about a week.
Zach, do you remember what we were talking about before? B-movies. Movies that are just so bad you can't help but fall in love with them. Don't you find horror movies the most frequent B-movies? Why do you suppose that is? Well let's break the mold a little with this next one. It was an action movie that came out near the end of the eighties. It was one of the first modern buddy cop movie and you couldn't help but think of everything eighties when you watched it. I'm not sure I can admit it yet, Zach. I'll give you a chance to guess it and save myself a little dignity.......
What'd you come up with, Zach? Buddy cop movie near the end of the eighties that perfectly typified that decade? Zach, don't tell me you thought it was Lethal Weapon! I could never call that a B-movie. Mel Gibson's charisma practically leapt off the screen and Danny Glover was great as his grizzled partner. And let's not forget Gary Busey. Nobody does crazy villains quite like him. No, the movie I'm thinking of is Tango and Cash. It stars Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russel as a pair of hot-shot LA cops. The dialog is perfectly witty and over-the-top, but the whole movie is incredibly cheesy. Jack Palance plays the villain. If we're going to call Corman the king of the B-movie, surely Palance is the crown-prince. He was in so many over the decades, always perfectly grandiose. Not a lot of people liked Tango and Cash, but I think if it had beat Lethal Weapon to theaters, we'd have seen it turned into a franchise. Your turn, Zach. What's the movie you're ashamed to admit you love?
