Day 124: Hardbodies 2 (1986)

hardbodies 2So last week we watched the film Hardbodies for Cheeseball Cinema and we were pleasantly surprised at how good the film really was. So, for this week’s Cheeseball Cinema film, we decided to watch the sequel Hardbodies 2. The film stars Brad Zutaut (Back To School) as Scotty Palmer who is now a big shot actor. It seems as if Scotty has it all from a budding career and a high maintenance fiance. But one day while on the set of the movie he is filming in Greece, Scotty meets the girl of his dreams in Cleo (Fabiana Udenio) and he decides to rethink his life and what is important. The only problem is that there are people that are standing in his way like the jealous step-dad and the pain in the you know what hot shot co-star. The film also stars James Karen (Return Of The Living Dead) as Logan, Louise Baker (A Cry In The Wild) as Cookie, Sam Temeles (Working Tra$h) as Rags, Brenda Bakke (Tales From The Crypt: Demon Knight) as Morgan, Roberta Collins (Death Race 2000) as Lana Logan, Sorrells Pickard (Hardbodies) as Carlton Ashby, Robert Rhine (Knock Outs) as Montino, and the film was directed by Mark Griffiths (Hardbodies).To see the rest of the review regarding how the film was, please visit my other blog for the full article here.

Top 25 Of April

Top-25 copyIt is that time of the month again as we are well into May to give you what I believed to be the top 25 for the month of April. I want to start by saying that this was definitely one of the hardest months to choose a film only because we stepped the game up with the quality of films. We had a couple of stinkers of course, but we had way too many good and amazing ones that made it hard to choose. So, there may be some choices that I make that you may not agree with, but this list is about how I feel the films were. The five films (since there is only 30 days in April) that didn’t make the top 25 cut are: Volcano, Kull The Conqueror, Summer Job, Reefer Madness, and Fifty Shades Of Black. Those films simply did not make the cut because they were either not worthy or just didn’t top any of the 25 films chosen. Here is the Top 25 for the month of April:

Day 117: Hardbodies (1984)

hardbodiesSince last week’s Cheeseball Cinema film, I decided that I should keep going instead of doing it just one time and I have another good one for you guys this week. The name of today’s film is Hardbodies and it’s an 80’s instructional video on how to pick up chicks at a beach. Well, I am just kidding, but the film stars Grant Cramer (Killer Klowns From Outer Space) as Scotty, a hip and cool California beach kid. Three older guys Hunter (Gary Wood), Ashby (Sorrells Pickard), and Rounder (Michael Rapport) are having a hard time picking up ladies. One day, they see Scotty doing it and they want him to teach them the ways of picking up hardbodies (gorgeous beach girls). Everything is going great for all of them until Hunter puts a move on Scotty’s girl Kristi (Teal Roberts). Now he has to teach them a lesson they’ll never forget. The film also stars Courtney Gains (Children Of The Corn) as Rad, Cindy Silver as Kimberly, Kristi Somers (Rumble Fish) as Michelle, Crystal Shaw Martell (Hard Rock Zombies) as Candy, Darcy DeMoss (Can’t Buy Me Love) as Dede, Kane Hodder (Friday The 13TH Part VII) as Older Geek, Kathleen Kinmont (Halloween 4: The Return Of Michael Myers) as Pretty Skater, and the film was directed by Mark Griffiths (Hardbodies 2).
