Peter’s Retro Reviews: Good Guys Wear Black (1978)

Tweet by Peter Nielsen ”Everything went wrong by the numbers… and that takes planning.” It’s been a while since we last talked about an action-flick, so I thought it was time to return to that particular genre. At least this week! I have a soft spot for this type of action-flick from the late 70’s or the 80’s and since…


Peter’s Retro Reviews: The Impossible Kid (1982)

Tweet by Peter Nielsen I recently bought a book called “Action Movie Freak” written by Katrina Hill. The book is a celebration and homage to all things action and included with the book was a DVD featuring a movie called The Impossible Kid, which is a Filipino spy-movie spoof of sorts. Spoof might be the wrong word, because it’s played…


Peter’s Retro Reviews: Police Story (1985)

Tweet By Peter Nielsen The first time I watched Police Story was at a movie-theater in Copenhagen, Denmark! I’m actually pretty pleased with the fact that I did get to catch it on the big screen, because back then martial arts movies and the Swedish censorship mixed like oil and water. This meant that most, or all, of these were…


Peter’s Retro Movie Review: Fist of Legend (1994)

Tweet by Peter Nielsen It’s time to return to another genre I love and grew up with… the martial arts genre. During the 80s, we devoured these types of movies, and the TV and radio shop I mentioned in my last review (The Soldier) had a shit-load of these for rent. Many of them were bad and, more or less,…


Peter’s Retro Movie Reviews: Wheels on Meals (1984)

Tweet by Peter Nielsen I suppose it was inevitable that I would land on a “Jackie Chan movie” at one point. I like the movies he’s in, especially the early ones. Sure, some of his latter ones like The Medallion, Shanghai Knights or the Rush Hour movies are action-filled and lots of fun to watch, but I’m still partial to…


Peter’s Retro Reviews: The Octagon (1980)

Tweet by Peter Nielsen I’m not sure when I first saw this one, but I think it was in my mid-teens. We rented a lot of movies in those days, my best friend Michael and I, you know, the one who now lives in England. Some of the first ones we rented were actually on the Betamax-format. Remember those? That…


Peter’s Retro Reviews: Breaker! Breaker! (1977)

Tweet by Peter Nielsen For the next month or so, I’ll be doing reviews with a certain theme to them. Sound good? Or at least slightly interesting? Maybe you’re thinking that my mind has taken a left turn towards “Nutso City”, but I thought it would be a cool idea. My chosen theme for the next couple of weeks is……


Peter’s Retro Reviews: The Last Dragon (1985)

Tweet by Peter Nielsen Let’s take another trip down memory-lane! It’s 1985 and my 17 year old self was at a late-night screening in Copenhagen, Denmark. My chosen movie for the evening was The Last Dragon and I remember being more or less awestruck already at the opening credits. The movie opens on Leroy Greene during a training session where…
