WELCOME TO ‘STEPHEN KING SUNDAY’! It’s all in release date order, every Sunday (maybe) and I’m watching feature length MOVIES only! Oh, here we are with another tragic movie, something that has an alright concept but because of budget and poor writing it is just the worst: The Running Man. I like Arnold Schwarzenegger, he’s cool, so I was excited to see this. But they gave him some of the worst lines in history and he is surrounded by the worst sets, costumes and props of all time… I didn’t like this movie because it was boring, looked terrible and had nothing to it WHAT so ever. I really don’t recommend this unless you like pure 80s action cheese.

Happy 30th anniversary to Midnight Run, the entertaining buddy action-comedy from Martin Brest, the director of Beverly Hills Cop, and staring Robert De Niro as a wiseass, street tough bounty hunter and Charles Grodin as the sensitive mob accountant he's tasked with capturing. A bail bondsman employs Jack Walsh (De Niro) to bring Jonathan "The Duke" Mardukas (Grodin) from Chicago to L.A. for what what seems like a easy task. However, Jack ends up outrunning the mob Duke embezzled money from, the F.B.I. and a rival bounty hunter while having to put up Duke's irritating behavior just to bring him back to L.A. Midnight Run is more than your average buddy film; this is a wild, genre busting ride of a movie that flips the concept of two oddly matched and always combative duo on it's head with De Niro stepping out of his usual comfort zone of gritty crime films and serious dramas and Grodin, who I grew up viewing as the gruff father from Beethoven, also playing against type to deliver stellar chemistry on the lines of a married couple who eventual warm up to and express themselves with each others amidst this chaos. Midnight Run is a little long yet substantial, funny and enjoyable and serves as classic 80s comedy of errors.

Bonus Jasemine related post. Saw Yaphet Kotto play this cover of Heritage in a small living room in Santa Cruz and was stoked to hear their recorded version later. This CDr was sold at the “final” YK show where everyone but YK played... #jasemine #yaphetkotto @pomelo_anderson

Another trip to #thehauntedbookshop to claim this beautiful box set from 1973 #liveandletdie - the set is complete and the 007 branded Tarot of Witches is still wrapped in plastic. It’s a crazy film jumbling tarot, voodoo, jazz and rock and Solitaire’s readings are very Hollywood but I loved it as a kid and it’s a great piece of Bond and Tarot memorabilia #tarotofthewitches #tarot #tarotinfilm #tarotcards #tarotreadersofinstagram #jamesbond #007 #rogermoore #janeseymour #yaphetkotto

#saynsfikşin#saynsfiksin#sciencefiction#runningman#richardbachman#stephenking#arnoldschwarzenegger#butcherofbakersfield#benrichards#yaphetkotto#mariaconchitaalonso#DamonKillian#richarddawson First of all, I hate Richard Dawson's onscreen Aura, mostly irritating. Ben Richards wants to fly to escape but just like Commando movie which Arnold Schwarzenegger played two years before this movie, he can't.

Another Favorite And Extremely Controversial Movie, Drum, Was Watched, Enjoyed And Sparked Great Salon Dialogue. It’s Been Said That History Often Times Repeats Over And Over Again. The Blueprints Have Already Been Laid And Set Firmly In Stone. For One Cannot Know Or Understand Fully Where They Are Headed, If You Cannot Comprehend Fully Where They Have Already Been. Stockholm Syndrome, Post Traumatic Stress, And Numerous Other Issues People Of Color Are VERY REAL! #Drum #KenNorton #PamGrier #YaphetKotto #IselaVega #WarrenOates #JohnColicos #MovieLover #MovieBuyer #MovieCollector #HeavenlyTouchHairDesignbyTaye❤️💇🏾💆🏾

Ahhh, the perfect movie to watch on Friday the 13th: "Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare" (1991). I recently picked up The Nightmare on Elm Street Collection, and I'm so pleased! The set is made up of five discs, the last being bonus features.

This movie has always been a mixed bag for me. While I do admire that there was an attempt to break some of the previous tropes (let's face it, the series had degraded - as much as I love them, it's true), some things just didn't work too well. The 3D effects aren't great, the script has high and lows, and I'm still not sure about the mood at times. I thought Freddy's death was a bit weak.

There are some parts I like, though: I actually enjoyed the backstory of Freddy as a young man, and a couple of the kills were very well done, particularly Carlos' death. The fairly mundane makeup and comedy distract, a bit, however. I love the franchise, and even though this is the weakest entry in ANoES, it's still enjoyable and I watch it at least once a year since its release.

Very good TV film, similar to Stallone's First Blood. Tommy Lee Jones is a Viet vet who occupies Central Park in New York and demands attention/respect to veterans. This Blu-ray has a mastering issue: black levels are looking grey. I think the issue can be fixed cranking TV colour settings. Anyway, a very good forgotten film with a great reversible sleeve & score by Tangerine Dream. #tommyleejones #theparkismine #bluray #yaphetkotto #tangerinedream #vietvet #centralpark #kinolorber

Really diggin this intro to this 40 yr old film Blue Collar. #yaphetkotto #richardpryor #harveykeitel #bluecollar #theblues

Los Angeles bounty hunter Mac "Truck" Turner (Issac Hayes) and his partner Jerry Barnes (Alan Weeks) gets a job to track down a bail skipping pimp named Gator (Paul Harris). When Gator is killed while attempting to shoot Truck, Gator's woman Dorinda (Nichelle Nichols) makes an offer to several other pimps that one of them can replace Gator (While she runs his stable of "bitches") if any of them kills Truck Turner. A pimp named Harvard Blue (Yaphet Kotto) takes Dorinda up on her offer as he sends a group of hitmen called "The Insurance Company" to go after Truck, putting Truck's life in serious danger along with the people closest to him
.
"Truck Turner" is an absolute hoot. A very entertaining crowd pleaser filled with crackling dialogue and situations that have to been seen to not be believed, yet the movie does a fine job selling it - Especially the shootout at a hospital which a character is in bed heavily casted and bandaged, yet he's shooting back at the bad guys😂 What makes this movie special, however, the performance of Nichelle Nichols who plays completely against type as Dorinda, Gator's tough talkin' ride or die bitch. Check out some of her dialogue
.
"I haven't had to sell pussy since I was fifteen and I found out I could sell other bitches' instead"
.
Uhura from "Star Trek"? Is that you?
.
"Whatchu see ain't all you get baby. This aint Sears Roebuck nigga"
.
Oh wow, this is rather, um....interesting
.
"Shut up, you junkie whore! I'm talkin' to you! And those two bitches that left, they'd better learn how to sell pussy in Iceland because if I ever see them again, I'm gonna cut their fuckin' throats!"
.
Nichelle, Nichelle, Nichelle, with your fine ass! I love the way you talk gangsta!. Normally, in terms of dating I avoid any woman that sounds and acts ghetto because it usually leads to trouble, but I'd make an exception with you Nichelle/Dorinda! Over here, gettin' a nigga worked up with your fine, tough talkin' self. I know this post is going off the rails, but I'm having fun writing this damnit! Because this movie is fun. Along with "Coffy", "Truck Turner" is one of my favorite blaxploitation films☺️ #truckturner #movie #film #1974 #1970smovies

Happy 45th anniversary to Live and Let Die, the eighth installment of the James Bond film series and the first to star Roger Moore as Agent 007 as his investigation of the deaths of three British agents leads him to Kanega (Yaphet Kotto), the dictator of a Caribbean island that farms heroin to supply his distribution under the guise of a Harlem drug lord. This film distanced itself from the world of high-tech espionage and megalomaniacs of the prior films to capitalize on the rising blaxploitation craze of the 70s all down to drug trafficking and gangsters prone to slang of the time era, and even goes as far as to incorporate supernatural elements such as voodoo. It's very over the top, but a lot of fun and features the one of the most memorable death of the Bond series and I can totally dig it.

TRUCK TURNER
Released April 19, 1974 San Francisco, California ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
TRUCK TURNER
American International Pictures, 1974
There are few artists who have offered a greater influence over the genre of soul music than Isaac Hayes who was present at the birth of the influential Memphis soul sound of Stax-Volt Records in the 1960s and also involved with early developments in disco and rap. From the release of 1971's score from the movie Shaft (that made him the first African-American to win an Academy Award for music), and that same year's Black Moses, Hayes was offered the title role in 1974's Truck Turner, for which he also delivered the soundtrack album. Hayes had never acted before, and only intermittently since, including the role of The Duke of New York in Escape From New York (1981), Hammer in I'm Gonna Git You Sucka (1988), Chef in South Park (1997) and several other smaller parts in low-budget efforts.
Effortlessly cool and charismatic with the combination of his baritone voice, shaved head, beard and shades, whenever blaxploitation gets mentioned, it is characters like Hayes’ Truck Turner that come immediately to mind. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

“I do have a favorite kind of director, which is the kind who allows me to create. Some haven't allowed me to create and I think by doing that they don't need an actor. They need a puppet.”
