    Daniel's Birth Year Challenge (1985)

    Movie 13/33

    Ths is my second Chuck Norris film of '85 and this one is much better than Code Of Silence.

    The film kicks off with a bang, with a bigger bodycount in the first scene than the whole of CoS.

    In genreal this was waaay more violent than I was expecting, including a great villain that loves to shoot people in the nuts. The sadistic bastard! He also possesses a rocket launcher that seems…

    1/1 Terrible Oversight Film

    I have no idea how I have never got around to watched this before, I've seen Aliens but I have never seen the original. So what better time then to pop it on during Hoop-Tober to revisit.

    I was in for a treat too, despite being close to 40 years old this holds up so well. The set design is fantastic, we all know the creature and FX are…
