Blind Fury (1989) was a tip of a hat to the classic Zatoichi films of the 60's through the 80's. It brought the story of a blind swordsman in a more relatable way to western audiences. I adore the Zatoichi series, and was still very entertained by this movie. While it has been decades… Continue reading Blind Fury (1989)
If you haven’t already, check out Space1970 over on Blogger. It covers Sci-Fi/Fantasy from the late 60’s to the early 80’s. The morning I discovered this wonderful blog I was captivated and, being a child of the 70’s, I felt a comfortable wave of nostalgia wash over me. Three hours later I had covered roughly 80%… Continue reading Space1970, the Blog that Inspires Me to Look Forward by Looking Back

In the coldest areas of the Northern Hemisphere, fire not only provided light by life-giving heat. On the longest night of the… Continue reading Winter Solstice
Back in the 1980’s, these were not that tacky. As a ten year old in 1980, I found many of these shows to be very entertaining. That was then, this is now… awful. Awful in a fun and nostalgic way though 😉 Enjoy!
Archie (1964)? This pilot was shopped out, but never sold. I just watched it and it wasn’t too bad. It played like Archie was the “Parker Lewis Can’t Lose” (a show from the late 1980’s), sans the Dutch Tilts & breaking the fourth wall, of his time. I liked that show and I have… Continue reading Archie the TV Show that Never Was
