Happy Malentine’s Day! And were it not Malentine’s Day, this post would have been titled “Grill Hard 2: Grill Harder”, of course. Naturally. Can we all just take a second to appreciate how brilliant that tagline is? Die Hard 2: DIE HARDER. So good. I don’t know who came up with that, but for now I’ll just assume it was Renny Harlin. I’m not even joking, I love that tagline. “Electric Boogaloo” is the only thing that even comes close, in my opinion, and I honestly don’t know which one is better. Probably “Die Harder”.
Happy Belated Malentine’s Day! I know, I know, it’s a year late. You have my deepest apologies, and I hope you enjoy what I’ve finally cooked up for you: 1988’s Rambo III.
Once again it’s Malentine’s Day- time for flowers, chocolates, and buddy cop bromantic comedies. This year we’ll be taking a look at Tango & Cash, the smash hit from 1989. Pretty sure it won Best Picture that year, but I could be mistaken. Anyway, Let’s meet our two heroes!
The year: 1991.
The setting: Sunny California.
Weather conditions: Perfect.
Bromance Factor™: Sweltering.
In case you haven’t figured it out already, this year’s Malentine’s Day treat is brought to you by our friend Point Break. According to Wikipedia, the film was originally set to star Matthew Broderick and Charlie Sheen, with Ridley Scott directing. Lucky for us, that abomination never saw the light of day.
Y’all thought I forgot about my old faithful, the Fast Franchi$e, but I assure that I have not. This grill casserole has been in the oven for quite some time, its not loaded with peas and rice and shit, just pure unfiltered grill magic. Homeboy Campos (John Ortiz) is ready to get this show on the road. I myself am pretty much ready to get this show on the road. Let’s do this.
Some promo materials for the cast of Fast Five, aka “Wild Speed: Mega Max” here in Japan. I’m guessing “Fast and Furious” never translated well, or was a little too intimidating for the movie going crowd here, so the entire franchise was renamed “Wairudo Supi-do”. Enjoy the promo site too.
First up we have our main man Paul Walker, gun held close, grill held closer.
