1990: The Bronx Warriors (1982).

Right, for a start this movie gets a bonus point for the totally amazing film poster that actually nearly represents the movie. The lead hero is much younger than he is drawn in this poster. I mean, he’s actually playing a much older hero. Or something. Yes.

Secondly this movie was filmed in 1981, released in 1982 and set in 1990. There. All confusion avoided.

So. Where does one start? The motorcycle gang with the lit up skulls on the handlebars? The rollerskating gang called the Zombies? The professional tap dancing gang? The Ogre? Witch? The dystopian future landscape of 1990? (I mean, it’s not now, but it could have been then, right?) The runaway weapons empire heiress?

I just don’t know, to be honest. It was just one big long heap of beautiful crazy. Trash rules, mmkay?

Oh, and we watched the Rifftrax version. You probably should too.
