B-Movies, Leslie Nielsen and Bears, oh my!

B-Movies, Leslie Nielsen and Bears, oh my!
(aka an exploration into insanity) You've been warned...

There are plenty of weird movie clips that we all see shared across the web. You know the ones. Those clips so out of context, so bizarre and head scratching they couldn't possibly be legit?
So on this lovely summer day, I wanted to share with you something so timely, so lined up with hipster pop culture that I have dug out from TheArchive none other than Leslie Nielsen and wait for it...animals on attack! I mean who needs funny man Sandler and his latest Netflix yawner or the lunatic in Tiger King when I'm delivering you the real uncut gems!
IMHO (yes throwback Thursday acronyms may abound), there is one clip that defies so much logic that it actually becomes more baffling, as more context is gleaned. One where a shirtless Leslie Nielsen, you know, that perpetually white haired real funny guy, best known for his roles in Airplane! and Naked Gun, fights a bear! Also it's not …

Beyond the Mask: American Independence

Image
With July 4th falling on a Saturday, parties would normally be off the charts around the country.

But this weekend, for so many reasons, celebrations may be more subdued.
Celebrating our nation's independence will be a right and privilege each person here in the states
can exercise and this particular writer will be home with his family revisiting a popular
TheArchive movie, BEYOND THE MASK. I thought it ironic given this Covid-19 time,
that a film celebrating American independence would have such an apt title.
Beyond the Mask, in beautiful 4K, is an action-packed adventure romance set in 1776 during the turmoil of the Revolutionary war, bringing history to life in a story filled with liberty, freedom, and faith.

Based on true events, the film features action, battles, and suspense, leading up to the historic
signing of the Declaration of Independence. Andrew Cheney stars as William Reynolds, Kara Kilmer
as Charlotte Holloway, Alan Madlane as Benjamin Franklin, and John Rhys-Davie…

Summer Summer Summertime

Summer Summer Summertime  (for B-Movies...because you’ve seen everything else)
Ahhh…summer!


The Sand! The Surf! The Sun! The July 4th fireworks spectacle! 
Or in reality, none of that while we stew inside suffering through the same stupid shit on Netflix.
As we continue into the Covid-19 apocalypse I’ve run out of stuff to watch. Until now.
While I’m safely hidden in TheArchive’s Top (Pop) Secret (thank you to our popcorn sponsor) bunker (totally not a broom closet), I’m going to share some B-Movie Summer fun from the dark corners of…not the broom closet! Or Roomba closet! (Thank you Roomba)

How great is this image?!?

So grab your sunscreen (can you get a sunburn from your iPhone?), stay six feet away from the TV, (can I give the virus to the actors in the movies? Some of them deserve it!), and enjoy a vision of days gone by….

I haven’t felt the sun on my skin in three months...
Our first movie from TheArchive’s Summer Summer Summertime is the newly restored to 4K Welcome to Paradise (1995), wh…

Juneteenth and an American Hero.

Commemorating an American Hero.Frederick Douglass said this of Harriet Tubman:
"The midnight sky and the silent stars have been the witnesses of your devotion to freedom and of your heroism…I know of no one who has willingly encountered more perils and hardships to serve our enslaved people than you have."This Juneteenthwe thought it only fitting to spotlight a story about an incredible American hero who changed the world. TheArchive proudly presents A Woman Called Moses, a miniseries honoring the life of Harriett Tubman who summoned the strength and indomitable will to defy and overcome a tyrannous system.Debuting in 1978...A Woman Called Moses was produced as a television miniseries and based on the life of Harriet Tubman, the escaped slave who organized the infamous Underground Railroad, ultimately leading scores from enslavement to freedom.
