Friday Night at the Movies – Roller Boogie

Welcome one and all to the final Friday Night Flight of August 2014. It’s been a weird ride here of late but I’ve been in a weird mood. I’m in a weird mood right now and I’m kind of looking to shake it. I’ve been on a roll with movies that have at least one scene of the detonation of a nuclear weapon. I think that’s because the world hasn’t seen the detonation of a nuclear weapon in a very, very long time… too long for my taste as a matter of fact. I think we are way overdue for some nuclear fireworks and I’m just…


Now this morning on my way into work I got some news that put me in a nice groove for the morning of the end of a VERY long week. It was 40 Years ago today that the Average White Band hit the American Airwaves with Pick up the Pieces…

I’ve had this song in my head all day. I’ve been busting out with fat man disco moves at the copy machine. This song should be pumped into every high capacity office space all day long on a continual, nonstop loop. There should be no beginning or end. It should be digitally mixed mastered in such a way that the end has a perfect synchronization with the beginning and it loops on the sound system for as long as there is power in the building.

Friday Night at the Movies – Survivor

untitled (8)

Welcome to another great Friday Night at the Movies. What makes this a great night? It’s Friday night. Another week on the grind is left behind. Silliness must ensue and you found yourself being silly enough to be right here, right now. That’s pretty special in my book.

The real benefit of living up to the weekly challenge that movie selection presents is getting to know some pretty strange movies that nobody has ever heard of before, that offer a story that expands the imagination a bit. This one does just that but in the Fourteen Minutes that I’ve seen of it thus far, it is reminiscent of one of my favorite movies of all times, one that has been requested by a regular here but I have been reluctant to grant that request on the grounds that it has been published here three times already, including once earlier this year. I’m often obnoxious in my movie selections but I can’t push too hard with this one. It’s a classic. Its essence is to be poured out sparingly, even when it hurts.

One reason why nice guys often finish last

Often times it’s because they refuse to acknowledge what they are up against. Somehow they believe it is noble to think of their opponent as misguided instead of evil, even when it is only evil that they display. When they have the opportunity to speak the Truth of a matter they fail to speak properly because they won’t acknowledge it for what it is. When that is the case you can never instill passion into anyone who listens to what you have to say. When you want people to believe in you but you cannot speak plainly about what is plain and observable for all to see, you will never win their hearts and minds.

Worse than he expected?


Who did he think he was running against?


Saturday Night Special – Triple Cross

It’s not every Saturday Night that we have a special presentation. Friday Night is for theatrical presentations but Saturday Night is wide open for just about anything. Often times a documentary is selected for the evening. The catalyst for our featured presentation this evening appeared on the Revo a short time ago. Since that time I’ve had this story on my mind.

There is one thing that you can be very sure of. The Islamic Jihadists who attacked us on September 11th 2001 lived and trained among us. Right now as you read this there are even more of them among us who are doing exactly the same thing. Just this week it has come to our attention that the President is doing what he can to insure that our enemies receive the training they need to carry out future attacks against the West. The National Geographic Documentary we are watching tonight is a trip into the past, showing us a little slice of history that has and no doubt continues to repeat itself.

This is especially chilling to me because the subject of the documentary, Ali Mohamed, was a Specialist Fourth Class in an S4 Company of 5th Special Forces Group when the Father of my Godchildren became acquainted with him.

Friday Night at the Movies – The last man on Earth

Welcome one and all to the cinematic oasis we have been looking forward to finding all week. This has been an interesting week in so many ways but we don’t want to think about any of that right now. Nonetheless I did look for a good riot movie just for giggles but all I could find was prison riot movies. They are great movies to watch except when there’s riots going on in the streets. A prison riot movie would leave the audience feeling cheated because the riot was contained within a correctional facility. You don’t get that same… burn baby burn feeling.

Oh well, I did end up finding something decent in spite of myself. I’ve never seen it either. I can’t do a fancy schmancy write-up here. I went looking for Omega Man and ended up finding the movie that inspired Omega Man as well as I am Legend. The lead character is played by Vincent Price. This just sounds too good to pass up.

There’s a Ferguson near you

So says Jesse Jackson.

I had the opportunity to ride around the “Urban Core” of the St. Louis metro area prior to getting to the airport as Little Miss Texas and I were headed home from the Revo Rendezvous. I cruised through Ferguson. I have to disagree with master racist Jackson on his observations. I live in da ghetto and there’s not a Ferguson near me. I got the same feeling in Ferguson and nearby areas that I did in Memphis. The areas I went through were a never ending ghetto and the hair was standing up on the back of my neck most of the time. I had a very odd and unsettled feeling during my tour of Fred Sanford’s old neighborhood. What’s happening there now doesn’t surprise me at all.

Nonetheless, I can think of many places where there is no Ferguson anywhere to be found. In those places there is no rioting, looting, burning or things like that. SHAZAAM.

Friday Night at the Movies – Cherry 2000

untitled (6)

Welcome one and all to yet another incredible Friday Night Flight. For many of us it has been a grueling week on the grind and we need a time and place to unwind, which is what movie night is all about. I view my efforts to bring the quality entertainment you expect on a Friday night as a labor of love. This week there was a lot of labor involved.

I waded through a cesspool of cinematic masterpieces all week. I don’t want to name any of them as you may find them to be frightening. One of the movies came with a warning very early on that if I continued to watch that I would empty my bowels into my pants. How very arrogant of them. I can do that all on my own without viewing their movie. Nonetheless I was intrigued and continued to watch until shortly after Ten Minute mark, at which point it became too silly even for me.

Friday Night at the Movies – Southern Comfort


Another glorious Friday night has found you here. We are happy you decided to stop on by. The entertainment that comprises our Friday Night Flight is an intense cinematic masterpiece that I attempted to present here some time ago but there was a technical glitch that caused the video to quit playing around Six Minutes as the sound continued. That was no fun at all. I’ve checked it out now and things seem to be running perfectly. Because a loyal viewer requested that it be featured here again soon, I have brought it back for a second run.

I love this movie and have not seen it in a long time. Actually this movie is very special to me. When it hit the theaters I was in High School and had already made my military career choice. This movie scared the crap out of me. This movie is able to engage the viewer in such a way as to make them feel the dread of the characters.

I could see how something like what was portrayed in the movie could happen.

Saturday Night Special – 50 Years of James Bond

I found something totally cool on the Tube this week. It’s the work of a dedicated James Bond fan. This is absolutely brilliant, what I’ve seen and read of it. Segments of each James Bond movie from 1962 through 2012 are edited together to make a movie all it’s own. It was created as a demonstration of the method of storytelling that makes Bond movies what they are.

It has been said of this movie, that it proves that if you’ve seen one Bond movie, you’ve seen them all. Yeah, that’s why as a kid growing up I was at the theater on opening night of every James Bond movie. My parents made it a point of being there on opening night. There were three shows that my parents made it a point of seeing when I was growing up. When Elvis was in concert they were there. When Liberace was playing, they were there. When a new James Bond movie hit the theater, they were there and they took us kids with them. For as long as Elvis and Liberace were alive, they drew a crowd. The fact is that as long as Western Civilization survives, Bond movies will draw a crowd.

Here’s something for every James Bond Fan…


Friday Night at the Movies – Invasion USA


Welcome once again to another sortie on the traditional Friday Night Flight. As has been the case of late, the work week has been exhausting and I was not finding anything inspirational to launch me into one direction or another, in search of a suitable masterpiece for our viewing. This week I am reminded once again that it is only due to attention to detail that the correct selection is made.

The title of the movie is of a very familiar theme. There is more than one movie with the same title. It would be very easy to let this one slip by without noticing who co-wrote the music, did the screenplay and actually co-produced the movie. Once I saw all that, I knew what the outcome of the Ten Minute Test would be. Sure enough, based on what I’ve read from what the guy has produced over the Years, I find this movie to be uniquely suited to our Friday Night Observances. Current relations between the United States and Russia also lend to greater enjoyment of the movie.

This is the 1952 version of Red Dawn!

Saturday Night Special – The Big Picture

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to see U.S. Paratroopers conducting a Mass Tactical Airborne Assault into Iran?

Did you ever think you would live to see the day when U.S. Marines conduct an amphibious assault against an Iranian Oil Terminal?

What kind of World would we be living in when the U.S. Air Force has an established air base in Iran?

These are the scenes from a World that once was. I found this gem of a military documentary while surfing the net last weekend. It’s a very rare look at the way things were prior to the rise of Islamic Revolution. It makes me almost want to quit wishing for a nuclear strike against them.

This was part of the Big Picture of the World in the Year I was born…


If you like your Kalashnikov, you can keep your Kalashnikov

Just don’t expect to be able to get authentic parts and accessories for it, for an indefinite period.

Of course if you’ve ever used small arms in your profession, unless you were raised behind the Iron Curtain to be a Communist Revolutionary this latest Executive Order is unlikely to affect you.


Friday Night at the Movies – In like Flint

Ladies and gentlemen, the movie selection process has been completely usurped by the sudden failure of my modem to perform. The time down and the replacement process robbed me of the time required to execute due diligence and produce a proper written introduction. Due to recent events I almost defaulted to a high jacking movie or some other passenger aircraft related disasterish movie, which would have been in completely bad taste.

Then there are recent events that make me want to find a good Israeli War Movie. Raid on Entebbe would be perfect but it hasn’t been that long ago when we last watched it. I must look for movies of this genre with greater detail.

Then I admit that what I really need is something funny. I truly want to be entertained. Then I found this. It’s just the kind of silliness I need. I almost went with something horrible tonight. It is a Golan Globus production and mercenaries are involved. Honestly, I think that may be a fine example of an Israeli War Movie after all. I will have to explore this further.

I just couldn’t do that to you and to myself tonight.

Behold and be entertained.


A proper Presidential Response

This is how a President who loves his Country and is intent on defending it responds to the shooting down of a passenger airliner…

Of course what we got today was something else entirely…

Coming soon to a theater near you

I went to see Dawn of the Planet of the Apes over the weekend. Excellent movie. It picks up where Rise of the Planet of the Apes left off. Whereas the previous Planet of the Apes movie had a real prison feel to it, the latest movie basically follows the storyline that took place in several of our public schools here in Jacksonville, back in the 70s. It was a great movie and it ends leaving the audience looking forward to the next Planet of the Apes movie. What a cool movie franchise. It matters not which decade the movie was produced, each Planet of the Apes movie has been highly patronized at the theater by the American public. There’s something that keeps us coming back for more. It asks a simple question. Is Man no better than Apes or are Apes no better than Man? Whatever it is, we just can’t seem to get enough of it. As I’m sure that everyone here has seen and enjoyed a Planet of the Apes movie, perhaps several of which in the theater, you should do yourself a favor and go see this one. It’s awesome.

Now for a scout report on some interesting movie previews…

The Saturday Night Main Event – Black Saturday

It was a night that many in the South remember to this day. It happened 30 Years ago on Saturday evening, July 14th. It was the worse thing that happened to Georgia since Sherman’s March. It was the night the world came to know that the World Wrestling Federation had taken over the World Championship Wrestling time slot at TBS. World Championship Wrestling had been the home of Georgia Championship Wrestling. The sacred 8pm television broadcast programming was an appointment for Millions of viewers in Georgia and throughout the Southeast.

Georgia Championship Wrestling was hosted by legendary ringside commentator Gordon Solie. It was a premier television promotion for the National Wrestling Alliance, generally considered to be home to the serious bad asses. Champions of the NWA travelled to various promotions throughout the South and Mid-Atlantic region, all the way out to California. The upper Midwest was home to Verne Gagne and the American Wrestling Alliance but at the time Black Saturday took place the AWA was beginning to make a terminally downward turn.

In the Northeast it was the McMahon family, first with the Worldwide Wrestling Federation, later to be known as the World Wrestling Federation, today known as World Wrestling Entertainment. They controlled the Northeast territory but Vince McMahon Jr. had visions of a much bigger market share. When Vince Jr. came into TBS and bumped the legendary Briscoe Brothers of WCW out of their spot, it started a television programming War that would continue for decades.

Friday Night at the Movies – Damnation Alley

It’s another glorious evening here on the Revo as we welcome you aboard another wondrous Friday Night Flight. Interestingly enough, the storyline in our featured presentation for this evening kind of picks up where our previous Friday night adventure left us off. I clearly remember when this movie hit the theater. I was tortured by its commercials on TV. With every fiber of my being I wanted to see… DAMNATION ALLEY on the silver screen and who could blame me???

Who wouldn’t want to see a movie with all THAT?

Well tonight’s your lucky night.

The Peaceful Majority is IRRELEVANT

I’ll let her explain.

Plain and simple, leaving a lesson to ponder.

Actually it leaves us with several lessons.


A Sunday Night Movie

I remember the Sunday evening television viewing ritual growing up in my house. There was the News followed by Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom, followed by The Wonderful World of Disney and then a Movie. I seem to recall ABC being the lead choice for Sunday Night Movies. What I am presenting this evening has nothing to do with any of that.

Fireworks stands are offering ridiculous deals to people who literally have money to burn. I love Fireworks but it’s been Ten Years since I’ve rocked this neighborhood on Independence Day. I am now actually considering a run to South Carolina for some Election Day Fireworks. If things go well this coming November and in November of 2016, those will be events worthy of a Fireworks display and will be generated by the same spirit that Independence Day once inspired in me.

Because I’ve not really satisfied my Fireworks craving this Independence Day, I’m going with another dose of the same kind of Fireworks we had here on Friday Night…

Totally Gay for America

Sometimes we encounter those among us whose sense of humor is so very highly advanced that they present it in a multi-layered fashion because it’s the only way they know how to.

I first came to know the insanity of The Whitest Kids You Know when THIS music video hit YouTube.

I’ve been wondering what else they’ve been up to lately and this morning I was given a rude awakening that fulfills my curiosity.

First there came the Big Gay Whopper from Burger King.

Now there’s this…


I really needed to hear this today

At least I am able to say that in the last hour of Independence Day 2014 I found John Wayne.


Friday Night at the Movies – The Atomic Cafe

This Independence Day I am presenting for our evening movie, a classic that has appeared here twice before. It first showed here in April of 2010 and again in October of 2012. I’m bringing it back this Independence Day as our own July 4th Fireworks display.

I wish I could have found something more thematic. The Patriot is one that many watch this day and it is worthy of a better viewing experience than we can offer here. The movie “Independence Day” would have been a good one but there’s only one scene that the average Revoista cares to see in that one. I tried to find one about an Asteroid sneaking in from deep space on a trajectory for Washington DC as a form of Fireworks Display for the evening but couldn’t find it.

Bootleg Fireworks

I really need a laugh today. I’m sure that a lot of you do too.

I’ve said it many times and I stand by the statement… Black people have more fun doing just about anything than white people do, excluding spearfishing, kayaking down whitewater rapids, working as a dog catcher or perhaps conducting routine vehicle maintenance. Independence Day is a big day in my neighborhood. The smell of charcoal grilles fills the air by mid morning. The furniture makes its way into the front yard. The sound of music fills the air. Children are screaming and running around acting crazy. Mothers engage in loud public displays of corrective action to the insane children. It’s a good time.

Then comes the time for Fireworks.

People in my neighborhood love Fireworks but are generally terrified of them. The whole lighting of the fuse ordeal is video worthy every time. Here is an example…

(Profanity Warning: There, you have been warned)
