" a little girl and her unborn twin who lived inside her"

That sounds like one of those "Very Special" episodes.  You know, the kind the whole family should see.

I actually thought Son of Kong had an interesting premise-- the filmmaker who brought Kong back has to deal with all the lawsuits-- but they never did anything with it.

I'm holding out judgement on Blood Feast 2 until I actually see it. True, it didn't *need* a sequel, but at the very least it's nice to see HGL back in the director's chair.

Amazingly enough, there was one movie not mentioned. Smokey and the Bandit was one of my favourites, but the sequels sucked. Not only did they just rehash the same story and the same jokes, they just got progressively more stupid.

The original was somewhat believable, or at least my disbelief could be easily suspended. A pair of southern tycoons make a big-money bet with a has-been legendary trucker to bootleg a load of beer. The trucker enlists/coerces his more responsible buddy, who has settled down with a wife and kids. Along the way, through some unusual circumstances, they pick up a bride fleeing a wedding, and attract the attention of her would-be father-in-law, a stereotypical southern cracker sheriff who brings all of law enforcement down on them. The performances are funny, the action is done well, and the story is pretty good.

Then we got the exact same story, but with elephants, and stuffed fish and Dom deLuise doing accents, and Sheriff Justice went from caricature to full-blown cartoon character. Burt Reynolds only shows up for a cameo in the third movie, and Jerry Reed becomes the bandit, and the Enoses are making bets with the sheriff. Aaaaaaagh!

Few things indeed can match the horror that is Smokey and the Bandit Part 3, would you believe I had the soundtrack back in the day?

SING IT WITH ME!!!.....

"Buford T. Justice, fearless law of Texas.
The man who chased The Bandit coast to coast.
Buford T. Justice, now you've gone and left us.
Where are you Justice when we need you the most?"

I feel so bad for Jackie Gleason, the Great One reduced to THAT.

And just what was the item that the ersatz Bandit and the retired Justice were chasing each other all over Florida for in Part 3?

The last shred of their dignity.

I guess you can throw Cannon Ball Run II in this bin as well.

Well, actually, it was big plastic shark (I think it was the baby shark prop from Jaws 3-D, released that same year).

When asked if he had every cried while watching a movie, Jackie Gleason responded "While watching one of the Smokey and the Bandit movies."

I'll take a wild guess that it was this one.

I liked the first Cannonball Run. I would say that and the original Smokey and the Bandit were Hal Needham's only real successes as a director. They're the ones people remember anyway.

Speaking of Needham, imagine what Megaforce 2 might have been like. Now, try to sleep with that horrifying image in your mind.

Not that it was great, but the RAMBO sequels progressively sucked harder

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
