It’s back-to-back Blanks! Everything’s coming up Blanks! This week my column on Daily Grindhouse somehow merged with their regular column Videogeddon. I didn’t intend that, but then the world didn’t intend to use up all their resources and have to move all the rich people underground to be protected by Billy Blanks on a motorcycle. These things happen.

That’s right, I reviewed TC 2000 starring Blanks with Bolo Yeung, Jalal Merhi and Mathias Hues, and celebrating its 20th anniversary this August. Click on the title there to check it out.

VERN has been reviewing movies since 1999 and is the author of the books SEAGALOGY: A STUDY OF THE ASS-KICKING FILMS OF STEVEN SEAGAL, YIPPEE KI-YAY MOVIEGOER!: WRITINGS ON BRUCE WILLIS, BADASS CINEMA AND OTHER IMPORTANT TOPICS and NIKETOWN: A NOVEL. His horror-action novel WORM ON A HOOK will arrive later this year.

    Muscle pasta = Mussel pasta?

  2. Maybe, but it seems like mussels would be hard to get from underground in a polluted world.

    Maybe they were canned mussels.

    Or maybe Billy Blanks is more resourceful than we ever imagined.

    “starring Blanks with Bolo Yeung, Jalal Merhi…”

    Damn, dude. This SHOULD be one of the best action movies ever made. I take it it’s not. That’s a pity.

    This is probably a huge omission, but I’ve yet to (knowingly) experience Billy Blanks. I really have to correct that soon.

  5. yeah, I seem to remember seeing the cover for this in a video store once
