Electric Boogaloo – Doc About Cannon Films Screening at The Tivoli September 17th

8 September 2015 7:32 AM, PDT | | See recent news »


Electric Boogaloo was the name of the wacky 1985 sequel to the break dance epic Breakin’ – which I don’t know was worthy of a follow-up but if there was one studio up to the effort in the mid-‘80s, it was Cannon Films. Electric Boogaloo: The Wild Untold Story Of Cannon Films is the title of a new documentary that plays for one night only in St. Louis at Landmark’s The Tivoli Theater Thursday, September 17th at 7pm.

Israeli cousins Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus, prolific salesmen with little regard for quality, bought Cannon Films for half million dollars in 1979 (it was founded in ’67) and turned it into an efficient assembly line of high-concept, action, and exploitation. Lovers of low-brow cinema could always count on a good time when that Cannon Films logo appeared on-screen. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Pt 2, the Sly Stallone arm wrestling opus Over The Top, »

Review: 'Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story Of Cannon Films' Is A Must See For Genre Enthusiasts

3 June 2015 3:32 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Much like the Orion Pictures logo that recently resurfaced and excited Generation Nostalgia™, you probably know the Cannon Films emblem, may remember their films and might even fetishize their library. But unlike Orion, which gave cineastes nine Woody Allen movies, unimpeachable genre classics like “RoboCop,” “The Terminator” and four Best Picture Oscar winners (“Platoon” among them), Cannon’s independent outsider brand was immediately defined by its lack of quality, good taste and sense. A schlock ‘em, sock ‘em house of shameless low-rent, Z-grade movies, the rogue and independent Cannon broke through the mainstream film market in the 1980s with its rash of no-budget exploitation pictures that even Roger Corman would be appalled by. Starting with Charles Bronson's "Death Wish II" (and its subsequent sequels), through "highlights" like Tobe Hooper's “Lifeforce," “American Ninja” and “Breakin’,” Cannon delighted B-movie genre heads with their »

This Weekend, Lngh Presents Death Wish 3!

31 March 2015 8:52 PM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

We are honestly proud to bring the Golan-Globus epic, the flagship of Cannon Films, Death Wish 3 for its 30th anniversary. I’ve been wanting to show this film for some time now and lord knows people have demanded it (namely Jeremy Jones, who contributes to Dtb). If you haven’t seen any or the previous Death Wish films, you’ll be fine. They pretty much recap it in the beginning and let’s face it, there wasn’t really a heavy plot to Death Wish or Death Wish 2.

Death Wish 3

1985 / dir. Michael Winner / Digital

Charles Bronson brings out the heavy artillery in this gun-blazing, no-holds-barred thriller! Paul Kersey (Bronson) longs to leave his fighting days behind him. But when he arrives in New York to visit an old friend, he finds him gasping for breath in a pool of blood! Now the silent avenger must wage war »
