    B-MOVIE BINGO: TIGER CLAWS 2

    TIGER CLAWS 2
    Showing Tuesday 3/7/17 at The Hollywood Theatre

    Jalal Merhi (TIGER CLAWS, FEARLESS TIGER) was a successful Toronto jeweler and amateur martial artist who sold his business in the late 80s… and used the money to finance a string of movies he starred in and produced. TIGER CLAWS 2 was one of those movies, with Cynthia Rothrock (LADY DRAGON, MAGIC CRYSTAL) and Bolo Yeung (BLOODSPORT, TC 2000) reprising their roles. This time around, Merhi and Rothrock are called upon to take down the evil gangster Dai Lo Fu, who is attempting to smuggle weapons back in time through a portal underneath San Francisco. Directed by J. Stephen Maunder (TC 2000, TIGER CLAWS).

    From the back of the VHS box:

    New York detectives Richards (Jalal Merhi) and Masterson (Cynthia Rothrock) reunite to pursue escaped serial killer Chong (Bolo Yeung) into the ancient caverns beneath San Francisco’s Chinatown on the eve of the Chinese New Year.

    In a deadly race against time, Richards and Masterson find themselves captured by Chong and his brother, the nefarious underground Chinatown leader Dai Lo Fu (Han Soo Ong), as they prepare for a ritual that will bring forth deadly consequences. 

    Escaping through secret halls built by the ancients, Richards and Masterson confront their enemies in a battle filled with spectacular gunfights and breath-taking martial arts.

    B-MOVIE BINGO: HOLOGRAM MAN

    HOLOGRAM MAN (1995)
    Showing Tuesday 3/3/2015 at The Hollywood Theatre

    Nothing in this movie is even remotely possible, but if you’re interested in movies that “have it all”, look no further! In a future world that looks suspiciously like early 90s Los Angeles, psychotic criminal mastermind Slash Gallagher (Evan Lurie—DOUBLE IMPACT) is brought down by rookie cop Kurt Decoda (Joe Lara—STEEL FRONTIER). A convicted insane person, he is sentenced to a futuristic version of prison torture called Holographic Stasis. His body is put on ice, while his mind and soul are re-programmed.

    After literally no time, Slash’s gang of insane cyber criminals break him out of what is already an impossible prison situation—but his body is destroyed in the process. Slash is rendered a nightmare hologram, able to walk through walls and smile as bullets pass through his digital body. Imagine Princess Leia as projected by R2D2, if Leia was a dreadlocked beefcake in a white leotard. When he speaks at normal volume, he sounds EXACTLY like Ross from “Friends”. Close your eyes and listen, and you’ll see.

    Once former rookie cop Kurt Decoda hears that Slash is out of hologram prison, he hits the streets—this time it’s personal. Decoda’s plan isn’t to send him back to jail… it’s to send him straight to hell! Directed by Richard Pepin (T-FORCE, CYBER-TRACKER 2).
