So Tim FINALLY heads back down to the front of the theater, signalling the end of the movie for real this time, and The Informer mercifully ends. Great... the deep middle of the night, Time for Tim's fucked up exploitation movie! Zack comes out and introduces Raw Force.

Trailers: Challenge of the Lady Ninja, The Legend of Hillbilly John (look out for the Uglybird!), It Came Without Warning, Cannibal Girls, Curse (new favorite trailer).

Maybe if I hadn't seen it before, much less just two months ago so everything is fresh in my mind, I'd be excited. But as it is, I watched up until the party scenes then went out to the lobby and talked. Funnily enough though, moving around outside made me tired, which sucked because I spent the next two movies intermittently fighting my heavy eyelids. So my memory of both the next films are not 100% complete.
10.05.06Terror Thursday This movie really makes me wish I had coded this site to allow multiple genres for each film. This really has it all... machine guns and explosion action, kung fu, cannibals, zombies, pirates, yacht parties... it tries to cover all the bases in hopes that you don't realize how crappy it is.I mean crappy in a fun way, but still...

The story is about... well it doesn't really matter. people on a boat go to this island where these monks eat the flesh of women to raise the dead kung fu masters buried there. There's some stuff involving jade and all these tourists seem to be karate black belts or members of the LAPD SWAT team or just there to party in topless boobfest fashion.

my favorite part was this yacht party that goes on in the middle of the movie. One guy breaks a huge block of ice with his head to make drinks and another guy blames the devil for making this girl be in a centerfold. Then everyone tries to score like it's a sex comedy all of a sudden and people have randomly hilarious day jobs like a 3rd grade teacher or they're on the lam running from a murder beef. So they all have some fun for a while then a gang of bad guys climbs aboard and it's back to the bad fighting and breaking candyglass bottles.

So Raw Force didn't quite change my world forever, but it was a pretty fun time and an absolutely packed house. Seriously long line... The Alamo staff made up RAW FORCE tshirts beforehand and they all came up front for the intro which everyone yelled RAW FORCE like 4 times. The movie ended with a "To Be Continued..." referring to Power Force, which I guess is not as good and even harder to find.

I feel like I should keep going with every little detail... but I don't feel like it.
