Back in the 90s I saw this on a television program called Maximum exposure, It showed an inuk superhero aptly named Super Shamou saving some kids, It's surreal. I never forgot about it and due to the internet i was able to snag the clip. It's god awful but so good.

Back in the day we didn't have all of these doohickeys and contraptions to bide our time. We had to resort to creating fun out of whatever was handed to us and believe me, It wasn't fun..
The metal ball thingy

Yes!! Back in the day when you could actually go outside and flash a toy gun we had this toy. And why would we even wear these you ask?
And even cards.
And after 4 sequels, a short lived t.v and cartoon series everything pretty much settled down. But the original movies kept the flame alive as it was shown around the world for decades. And how can you destroy such a beautiful visage?
You make this..
And as a new age approached.
Everyone knows what's going on except hardworkin' dad. Because you know, he's busy with work n stuff.
ahh those were the days. in the late 80's it was the video store craze, there were video stores everywhere and the thing is, each one had different movies in them, but overall cheesy old horror or foreign english dubbed films. forget getting the good films on the weekends, youll end up experiencing something like this...
just rent them on wednesday and return them sunday..
heres some of the early video store movies which in the end turned up to be badass movies and my all time faves.
The first collection of horror scenes from movies, mainly independent films to come out. it was great to watch and ive had this on cassette for the longest. then the less inferior "terrors in the isles" came out which was wack with less of everything. every video store had this.
the best movie ever for its time, mega low budget but effective effects and the monster was scary as all hell.
i think at this point, i would run on top of water...
the ending made me cringe for days, man....
to this day, i love this film, plus the part when they're attacking the old ladies is hilarious and messed up. where the hell was life alert when you needed it?
2 gory films but slayer was darker and somewhat clausaphobic and eerie
cool kill scenes in a totally dark atmosphere made anyones let alone mine skin crawl
turns out the chick from the group is actually the monster in the subconscious, or some shit like that. kind of like inception, but in 1982.
and finally city of the living dead or walking dead or something
this movies been renamed like 10 times. its about a bunch of crazed zombies that run around literally killing anything in their path.
theyre supercool, even carrying axes and machine guns, all of that while wearing suits and running at top speed.
not too convincing is he? even though he just finished chopping some lady in spandex breasts off, this film is very gory and insane, from eye gorging to straight up gangsta phone checks this movies got it all. it still puzzles me though are they killing to drink blood or killing for fun because they seem to enjoy it tons.
ive seen this movie dozens of times and the ending is well, predictable and cheesy and there's never a happy ending in any zombie film, ever.
and finally finally Ator!
they were so many conan ripoffs too many to name, but i remember this one, beastmaster, krull and a few others
it was the same old, kill the warlock, fight giant rubber monsters or dachshund dogs in rat suits meanwhile the music was all electro pop with goth choirs, ahhh the memories.....
many years ago, i mentioned that a pal of mine resembled the lead character from the movie "rock a doodle". much to my amazement, my other friend quickly replied, thats not a movie, its a cartoon! and it stuck with me for years, what is a cartoon movie? heres some that i think are strictly movies or strictly cartoons in no particular order..
secret of nimh - Cartoon
itll appeal to kids but definitely its a cartoon. ive seen this a few times when don bluth was droppin movies left and right before he got kicked out the movie business for making that godawful titan a.e.. nothing to remember, for me at least.
Fire and ice - movie
this movie is badass, ralph bakshi animation mixed with frank frazzetta art it cant get better than this. ive seen this movie tons of times, they shouldve called this one "jaguar god" and produced a sequel.
this is my favorite movie from the 80's and this falls into the "movie" category.
warriors of the wind - movie
i rented this at the video store in the 80s and i loved it ever since, it was my first introduction into japanese anime before akira and ninja scroll.
great story and great animation makes this a perfect movie.
mad love for lord yuppa.
Wizards - i have no friggin idea
another bakshi film, too much rotoscoping, live action backdrops for my taste but an ok movie.
starchaser - cartoon
this one i saw at my uncles house in the 80s it was pretty good, tha animation was great, reminded me of he man, but in outer space
heavy metal - movie
cool movie with different stories and art, cool music too, i had to watch it a few times to like, but definitely not a cartoon.
alright alright, i guess theyre all cartoons then, i owe my friend a fiver, bleh....
