Hard Country (1981)
One of Jan-Michael Vincent's Best Performances
I remember seeing this movie for the first time when I was in high school and wondering who that good looking cowboy was. This film evokes the whole feel of the '80's when Dallas was popular and a lot of people I knew wanted to move to Texas. Jan-Michael Vincent delivers a great performance as a back to the grindstone everyday blue-collar worker. Kim Bassinger does a great job in an early film role for her as Jodie, the disenchanted girlfriend of Kyle's. The film does have some great funny parts and lines. One of my favorite funny scenes is when Kyle asks the manager if he would like a pair of socks. I enjoyed Darryl Hannah's character as Jodie's inquisitive little sister. I think the plot hits home for a lot of people who fall into a mundane routine each day going to work and then try to bring some fun to their lives on Friday and Saturday nights. Even the scene when Kyle asks Jodie if she is on her period after they argue, probably is familiar to a lot of women out there. The fight scene between Kyle and his brother is a great scene and a bit touching when you see the tears in Kyle's eyes. It seemed the fight not only affected him physically but emotionally as well. OK and being a Jan-Michael Vincent fan I enjoyed seeing Jan's backside too. There is a lot of music, but maybe because Michael Martin Murphy was the screen writer.
Lethal Orbit (1996)
Countdown to Disaster- yeah I believe it
The other name for Lethal Orbit is Countdown to Disaster. Let me tell you that title fits this movie. The endless courtroom scenes are just too dull. The DVD case is misleading in that it looks pretty interesting, but that is about it. Don't read this movie by its cover. I bought this movie because Jan-Michael Vincent made a appearance in it. Well, I made myself stay awake long enough to see his performance as Riff. I quickly fell asleep there after. If you are having trouble sleeping this movie is a great insomnia cure. Because it had Jan-Michael Vincent in it I will say it is not a total waste of film, but it is pretty close.
