    I want some cookies now. 🙂
    You guys both did a great job, this made me laugh a lot. This movie looks amazingly bad and really entertaining. On a side note, I’m now picturing that Monty Python Lion Tamer sketch as being about a cookie tamer or a town tamer.

    Why hasn’t Troma picked up this movie?!
    As soon as I saw this, I thought it was a Troma Film.
    In a way it is, except with alot less boobs. Just awesome and want
    To check this out. XD

    • Cecil_Trachenburg

      While not quite the same “feel” as a troma film, I could see them distributing this.

  • Jerry Nava

    Great job you two! I gotta watch this movie now, it seems fun enough!

    • tedzey71

      I’m with you there, Jerry! Cookies and Merc’s.!

      • Cecil_Trachenburg

        Its classic cheese

    • Cecil_Trachenburg

      Thanks Jerry! Track the movie down, you won’t be disappointed.

    I hated You Don’t Mess With The Zohan, which had the similar premise of an ex-commando trying to become a hairstylist. However I did not hate Hudson Hawk, which I’m guessing has a similar tone. And I do miss the days when Hollywood movies would have songs penned specifically for them.

    • Cecil_Trachenburg

      I chuckled a few times at Zohan, mostly when he was screwing every old woman in the city.

      Hudson Hawk was similar in tone to Traxx but not as goofy.

    Going by your and Lupa’s reactions, it seems like this just might be THE ULTIMATE Good Bad Flick. You two seem so extra-excited about this one. Is this exceptional, even among your usual diamonds-in-the-rough? Is this just so much more betterer? I dunno if I’m picking up on any extra excitement in your voices or if it’s just some Hollywood Squares-era nostalgia messing with my mind.

    I notice my local (and by local, I mean two hours away yet awesome) video store does have this in stock. Because it’s awesome. I’m in the mood for cheese, especially 80s cheese. Is this a must see of must sees? Should I bump it to the top of the queue? ‘Cuz I’m gonna do that. Why am I even asking you? I already reserved it. And Strike Commando. Thanks.

      It is epic in its ridiculousness. Its one of those movies that you just can’t believe what you are seeing. It is a gem because it relishes in its violence…in a weird way. Hundreds of people die but in a cartoonish way that makes it even more disturbing but hilarious. A rarity.

      Hope you enjoy it!

    Is it me, or does Shadoe Stevens look like Christopher Lambert?

    Anyway, great review, guys! I’m glad I got a double dose of Obscurus Lupa this week!

    • Cheshire Cat

      I can totally see it!

    • danbreunig

      “does Shadoe Stevens look like Christopher Lambert?”

      I can see Benjamin Orr. Sign of the times.

    • Cecil_Trachenburg

      I think its the hair.


  • Cheshire Cat

    For me, nothing can out-cheese Roddy Piper in They Live(1988).

    • MephLord

      Not even the Ultimate Warrior promos from his pro wrestling heyday? I really miss the cartoonish promos from the glory days of the WWF and WCW.

      • Cecil_Trachenburg

        I just miss the old WWF shenanagins

        • MephLord

          Have you ever thought about doing a show about pro wrestling? There is so much comedy to be found on events and matches that not even Botchamania covers. An alternative commentary style for things like Royal Rumble 1993 or the Chamber of Horrors match in Halloween Havoc could be great nostalgia.

          • Cecil_Trachenburg

            While I do agree there is much comedy within wrestling, especially the old WWF stuff, I think it would probably get old quickly. I think I’ll just stick with movies starring wrestlers.

          • MephLord

            The best movie then would be Ready to Rumble, that was so unintentionally funny in so many ways.

          • danbreunig

            If you don’t mind a healthy drama, the 2008 The Wrestler will give you your fix.

    • Cecil_Trachenburg

      but he’s all out of bubble gum

  • Joelkazoo

    Shadoe Stevens’ voice can melt butter!

    • Cecil_Trachenburg

      He does have a legendary set of pipes!

  • Between Trax and Walker: Texas Ranger, you get the sense that Texas lawmen just don’t have any f*cks to give. As a Texan, I can state that this is indeed true.
