Invasion U.S.A. (1985) (part 2 of 2)

“Chuck Norris plays Matt Hunter, a former government agent who now spends his time doing two things: 1) wrestling gators in Florida and 2) being stoic. Meanwhile, a psychotic Russian named Rostov (played by B-movie staple Richard Lynch) is leading an invasion of America by a combined force of Russian and Cuban bad guys. He also has a rather huge grudge against Hunter, which pulls our hero into the action.”

The NeverEnding Story (1984) (part 2 of 2)

“Why does there always have to be a ‘chosen one’? Why is there always some insanely powerful trinket that can do pretty much anything the wearer wants? Why are fantasy lands always ruled by a single person? And why is that person always either a tyrant—with an army of dark-colored creatures that can’t talk—or completely benevolent, causing rainbows and unicorns to appear by his or her mere presence?

“If you’re looking for answers to these questions, or at least a fresh take on the old fantasy clichés, this is not the movie for you.”
