Reviews From The Past

Dreamscape (1984, Joseph Ruben)

Dreamscape has a lot of subplots. The main plot barely gets any more time during the second act than the subplots. But I’m getting ahead of myself because I wanted to talk about the first act, which has Dennis Quaid getting reacquainted with mentor Max von Sydow. 632 more words

Shake the Scene: Commando

Commando (1985)

The Scene: The Commando Killing Spree

Why I Love This Scene: I don’t know how I saw Commando back in 85 or 86. My folks, as you may recall from other posts of mine, were somewhat very laid-back when it came to the flicks they let me watch as a kid. 305 more words

Shake The Scene

Episode 28: Commando (1985)

Cross introduces us to John Matrix, a larger than life ex-special forces killing machine whose daughter has just been kidnapped. Where does this rip-roaring tale of steroidal revenge rank in the Arnie Canon, and what will Mitch make of it all? 7 more words
