I still have like the last 30 minutes left of both Cobra and American Ninja and I’m kind of embarrassed about that but I also feel like starting a Bogart movie instead of finishing them
and pre casablanca/maltese falcon bogart
Everytime I see a movie with Humphrey Bogart I’m just like “oh yeah, that’s what a movie star is.” Forget the fact that he was an incredible actor, the guy commanded attention like nobody’s business. I mean if a crowd of ninjas just showed up in one of his movies and started chopping people’s heads off with lightsabers you’d still probably be more interested in watching him smoke quietly in the corner.

bless, i love this film
I was blown away by it. I had been kinda let down by The Public Enemy and Little Ceasar so I lowered my expectations a bit, which made this that much more impressive. I mean just the ground-laying montage at the beginning, or the brilliant workaround of the Hays Code morals in the ending, or Curtiz and Polito just mise-en-scening the fuck out of it the whole time, everything about this damn movie was fantastic.
just a heads up American Ninja is an unheralded 80s action classic that lives up to everything you would want from a Cannon production
Michael Dudikoff looks a whole lot like Glenn Howerton which is perfect because American Ninja feels like exactly the kind of movie Dennis would want to star in.
I watched Rio Bravo yesterday and I only just now realized it was directed by Howard Hawks not John Ford
