I might have to watch that tomorrow. Is it instant, or YouTube Red...or whatever?
I'm really glad the board is back up because now I can tell everyone how awesome American Kickboxer 2 is.
A Cali muscle karate dude bro and a cop who plays by his own rules have to put aside their differences to help save their newly discovered daughter (it's complicated), who was kidnapped out of her swimming pool by helicopter, by taking down the extortion/drug gang one fighting tournament at a time. There is no actual kickboxing at anytime, the closest it gets is a very short fight with escrima sticks. The dialogue had me howling. Good stuff.

"An obscure body in the SK system. Its inhabitants refer to it as the planet (voice dripping with arch contempt) ...Earth."
Total masterpiece. It's like a movie for kids but if it had been directed by Tinto Brass.
Just rewatched this. I stand by my statement. And what villains. Outrageously-dressed pervy monsters played by seasoned pros picking up a check but also clearly having a grand old time.
I am watching the BBC miniseries Life which is pretty excellent. Narrated by David Attenborough. Very similar to Planet Earth. Surprisingly brutal though. The first episode features the barnacle goose, which as soon as chicks hatch they basically jump off of a cliff and hope to survive. After gratuitous footage of little baby gosling bodies getting smashed against the cliff face, its revealed that only 3 of the featured 5 survive.
