Episode 81 - Stallone Again...Naturally

What is it about the inescapable pull of Menahem Golan?  We have yet another film from this storied filmmaker this time, but we start with 1986's Cobra, from George P. Cosmatos, who had previously given the world, Rambo: First Blood Part 2.  In a solid tale of a renegade cop who's trying to stop a ruthless serial killer from knocking-off a witness to one of his kills, Cobra delivers everything that you might want in an action film from the 80's ( except maybe nudity, which there is none of ).  We follow that up with Mr. Golan's 1987 film "Over The Top" which tells the story of Lincoln Hawk, a trucker and arm-wrestler who is trying to mend a shattered relationship with his youngish son.  Oh, did we mention that both of these films star the one and only Sylvester "Tango" Stallone? Well they do, and he is actually pretty great in both of these.  This show was built from a recommendation from Dylan over at D's Movie Corner...if you check out his site, please tell him that you heard about it on Flickers from the Cave. While you're letting people know things, let US know what you thought of the show and what movies you'd like to see added to the big pile of stuff that is filling up the cave.
