The Last Dragon April 22, 23
The neo-sploitation cult classic is coming for two midnight showings. According to the website “Motown music mogul Berry Gordy produced this all-purpose pastiche of 1970s and ’80s pop culture, which features martial arts, funk, blaxploitation, disco and recording star (and former Prince protégé) Vanity. Bruce Lee wannabe “Bruce” Leroy Green (Taimak) must protect Laura (Vanity) from gang boss Sho’nuff. Frankly, with lines like “Kiss my Converse!” we’re not sure why this movie isn’t already your favorite cult film.” Neither am I frankly.


My personal “Oh hell yeah” is “Big Trouble In Little China” showing May 27, 28

This is cheese done right. According to musicboxtheatre.com:
“Traveling through a shadowy world filled with supernatural creatures and spectacular action, regular guy Jack Burton (Kurt Russell) and lawyer Gracie Law (Kim Cattrall) try to track down a 2,000-year-old magician, Lo Pan (James Hong), who has kidnapped Burton’s friend’s green-eyed fiancée. John Carpenter directs this adventurous spoof of the martial-arts movie genre set in San Francisco’s Chinatown district. ”
