Ice Pirates, and Regular Ones Too…61
The last two Dvd purchases i have made, have been two movies that i remember fondly from my childhood. The first one was the Don Coscarelli classic “The Beast Master”. Stevi had never seen it before. So what i decided to do, is go and purchase it. On the ride home, i built up the movie so much, i started to feel awkward about the whole situation, cause i realized that i in fact had not seen the movie since i was probably 8 years old. so as far as i knew, the movie sucked ass. well needless to say, the movie was not great, but we both enjoyed it for what is was worth. she really liked it, as for me, it brought back great memories of grabbing a stick and swinging it around like Marc Singer, awesome. Yesterday i decided to pick up another childhood favorite movie of mine,”The Ice Pirates”. Now i was so confident about the Beast Master affair, that i decided once again build up the Ice Pirates to stevi. She had not seen this one either. So anyway, Ice Pirates was a little bit of a let down. Dont get me wrong, i loved it, it just wastn’t as entertaining as beast master. I tell you one thing though, all the things that were memorable in the movie, from when i was a kid, were still incredibly enjoyable now. Things such as Space Herpes, Near Castrations, Desert Dune Buggies, Bruce Valance,and that whole Time warp thing,that makes that black guy’s hair HUGE and white. that was funny ass shit.
Now here is where i need some help. There is one other movie, besides Ice Pirates and Beast Master that was on cable ALL the time when i was a kid. It was a pirate movie. Now for years, i have been under the impression that the movie i loved as a kid was the film adaptation of “The Pirates of Penzance”. Here is the dilemma. I was on Anchorbayentertainment.com the other day,and it said that they were about to release a film called “The Pirate Movie”. i’ve been looking at both the posters for each of these films, and they both could be the pirate movie i remember watching all the time as a kid. I really would like to get this movie. for i own ALL of my childhood favorite cable movies on dvd, Superman, Red Dawn,Clash of the Titans, Star Wars,Beast Master, and now Ice Pirates. Now, if anyone knows about either the Pirates of Penzance, or The Pirate Movie, please let me know details, so i may purchase this movie on dvd, and build it up for Stevi, even though i might be talking out of my ass.
Oh yeah, i also need to know what movie from the 80’s has a big final stunt involving a motor cycle, jumping or flying into the back of a carrier airplane,that is taking off, with it’s cargo hatch down. i think it was Delta Force, but i have no clue.
