When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, and he looks you crooked in the eye and he asks you if ya paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: "Have ya paid your dues, Jack?"

"Ol' Jack always says... what the hell?"

The characters are both endearing and witty, with the actors hamming it up to extremes. Meanwhile Carpenter provides direc... read more

I think if I had watched this from start to finish prior to the age of, I don’t know, about thirteen my opinion on it would be totally different. As it stands, I watched it as I slowly moved over the hump towards thirty. It’s probably one of the best bad movies I’ve ever watched, but that doesn’t mean it’s actually very good.   Nothing about it makes any sort of sense. I watched it bu... read more

Description: Directed by thrill master John Carpenter, this edge-of-your seat adventure stars Kurt Russell as Jack Burton, a tough-talking, wisecracking truck driver whose humdrum life on the road takes a sudden supernatural tailspin when his best friend's fiancée is kidnapped. Speeding to the rescue, Jack finds himself deep beneath San Francisco's Chinatown, in a murky, creature-filled world ruled by Lo Pan, a 2000-year-old magician who mercilessly presides over an empire of spirits. Dodging demons and facing baffling terrors, Jack battles his way through Lo Pan's dark domain in a full-throttle, action-riddled ride to rescue the girl. Co-s ... (more)

"Re-watch - Sept. 7th There's nothing out this month that the kiddo wants to catch in the theatre, so I put this on for us to watch together. My thoughts are known around here, so I'll just express my gratitude that she enjoyed it as much as she did. I doubt she loved it to the same degree as I do, but she was definitely entertained and had a good time."

“Sin duda alguna es de esas películas MUY de los 80's que no ha envejecido bien, a mí como amante de las cosas retro me gustó y su comedia tanto voluntaria como involuntariamente me pareció sumamente simpática y ocurrente. Me entristece un poco que una cinta con este tipo de comedia no pueda tener un remake en tiempos modernos por cuestiones de correccionismo político y además le tengo cierto aprecio especial por la amplia inspiración que dió para crear Mortal Kombat.” read more
