    Charlie Moore (Jonathan Ke Quan, THE GOONIES) is a Vietnamese teenager being raised in the lap of Southern California luxury together with his American brother, Tony. What they don’t know is that their father, ex-GI Michael (Jerry Trimble), is the ring leader in an armed bank robbery.

Now the focus of the gang is turned toward this lone eye-witness, and Charlie and Tony find themselves pitted against their own father and his gang in an effort to protect the young girl.
     
    The action culminates in an explosive final battle that gives new meaning to the word “KICKBOXING”! Directed by Lou Kennedy.

    B-MOVIE BINGO: ARMY OF DARKNESS

    ARMY OF DARKNESS (1992)
    Showing Tuesday 10/3/2017 at The Hollywood Theatre

    Bound in human flesh, inked in blood — and amazingly hard to pronounce — the ancient “Necronomicon” (Book of the Dead) unleashes unspeakable evil upon mankind in director Sam Raimi’s (DARKMAN) outrageously hilarious sword-and-sorcery epic.
     
    Back to do battle with the hideous “Deadites”, Bruce Campbell reprises his role from the EVIL DEAD series as Ash, the handsome, shotgun-toting chainsaw-armed department store clerk from S-Mart’s warehouse division. Demonic forces time-warp him — and his ’73 Oldsmobile — into England’s Dark Ages, where he romances a beauty (Embeth Davidtz) and faces legions of undead beasts, including a ghastly army of skeletons. Can Ash save the living from the evil dead, rescue his girlfriend, and get back to his own time?
     
    Overflowing with spectacular special effects, ARMY OF DARKNESS will make you scream with fear and laughter. In the words of the Washington Post, it’s “drop-dead fun!”
     
    Directed by Sam Raimi (THE EVIL DEAD, SPIDER-MAN).

    B-MOVIE BINGO: FIRST ACTION HERO

    FIRST ACTION HERO (1994)
    Showing Tuesday 8/1/2017 at The Hollywood Theatre

    Shit hits the fan when lone wolf veteran cop Mark Fierro (Fabio Testi) is transferred from Tampa back to his old precinct in Miami in order to prevent the local mafia gangs from engaging a full blown gang war. Fierro and his flamboyant golden-locked partner Hoagy O’Toole (Ron Nummi) stop at nothing to get the job done. Whether it’s killing everything in their path or spending hours in Fierro’s bare white office containing nothing but a desk and a photo of Bill Clinton on the wall, these two mean business! To complicate things, Fierro’s teenage daughter from his failed marriage is dumped in his lap unexpectedly and he is suddenly forced to be a father, while simultaneously trying to juggle his relationship with his D.A. girlfriend Lori (played by Marina Giulia Cavalli, who does nothing but protect the people he is after) and deal with his Mafioso Uncle Ben (Gabriele Ferzetti).

    Packed to the brim with action and boring scenes all set to the same music that sounds like it could have been a contestant for the Wheel of Fortune theme, this film has it all: acting, cinematography and at least two songs. Although this film obviously has nothing in common with Last Action Hero from 1993, you may notice that Mark Fierro is using the same handgun that Jack Slater (Arnold Schwarzenegger) used. So this is like that movie, but FIRST instead!

    This movie has the best theme song.
