    Wow….

    NONE of this feels 1995. The hair, the clothes, the genre….and Feldman? He was still going? Are you sure this movie wasn’t filmed four, or five…..or six……..or seven years prior? Just feels like it woulda fit better.

    As far as PM Entertainment, well, hate to be a wet blanket, but I ain’t never heard of them. What’s their best film? I’m OK with mild 80s cheese (I did like Cyclone, to jog your memory, but that was mostly for the Combs), but they have to be legitimately good in some way. Camp/ironic love doesn’t really work. What’s their masterpiece?

      It did have that glam metal era look to it (I so disliked those extra baggy waist jeans from then), and kinda expected Cecil to say something like “released in 1995, pre-produced in 1989”. Feldman’s junior-high-level pitch seems an indicator. Another may be the Bloodsport face.

      Ah, Mako–let him tell you of the days of high adventure.

      Not an expert on PM Entertainment, although maybe some of their Cindy Rothrock films can be featured in GBF–I’ve skimmed a few of those and they may have more of what you’re looking for past the camp/ironic factor.

        “Ah, Mako–let him tell you of the days of high adventure.”

        Now THAT is a timeless film!

        And are they the Rothrock producers? Been meaning to see one of those. What should my first Rothrock be?

        (For context, I only JUST RECENTLY saw my first Van Damme and first Seagal…not counting Street Figther or Executive Decision….because I just don’t).

          PM is one of the Rothrock producers.

          As far as a start for Rothrock, I’d have to go with China O’Brien.

        I think it was more that the 80s really bled into the 90s, which is why there is this odd mix of fashion for the first half of the decade.

    • Cecil_Trachenburg

      I would have been suspicious of this being filmed earlier of not for Ted Jan Roberts being older than he was in The Magic Kid. This was from the 90s, it just had that late 80s look.

      PM entertainment was a staple of late night DTV in the 90s. Its tough to say what their magnum opus is but I’ll tell you some of my favorites. CIA Code Name Alexa 1-2, East LA Warriors, Bikini Summer 2, Cyber Tracker 1-2, Executive Taget, Darkbreed, The Silencers, T-Force, Busted (Corey Feldman’s first and last time directing), Ring of Fire, No Escape No Return, Zero Tolerance, Skyskraper, and Tiger Heart.

    Ah, Erin Gray. As a kid I fell in love with her watch “Buck Rogers in the 25th Century”.

      Silver Spoons for me. She was freakin hot!!

      Same.

    • Capt. Harlock

      Mmm. They has to sew her into her Lycra pants/jumpsuits.

      I never saw it when it was on. I think I may have been watching Big Bad Beetleborgs

        I found him whiney and annoying. His Japanese counterpart was the strong silent type.

        • It is best to just not compare sentai in the US to Japanese counterparts. It is akin to watching different children playing with identical lego sets. Some play with the sets as the instructions tell them to, some just take the whole thing apart and play with them in random fashion, and then there are those who mix them with other sets to create a big hodgepodge.

          It’s not really adaptation, it is using parts in vastly different ways and different contexts.
