Peter’s Retro Movie Review: Remo Williams – The Adventure Begins (1985)

Tweet by Peter Nielsen This week’s movie-choice is based on a very successful series of books, “The Destroyer”-series, written by Warren Murphy and Richard Ben Sapir.  There are well over a hundred of them published so far and I actually haven’t read any of them.

Tweet by Peter Nielsen Let’s go back in time, shall we? (Pun intended!) Let’s go waaayy back in time.

I’ve stated this before, but we DID rent a LOT of movies back then and this one would have been right up our…
