@jim_belushi Chicago cop outfit from the film Red Heat (1988) also starring @arnoldschwarzenegger_offical . Jim played wisecracking Chicago Detective Art Ridzik in the classic action film. He spent the film wearing his on duty light grey faint houndstooth checked sports coat from Botany 500, powder blue short sleeve shirt with a light blue, mid blue, black and apricot orange bold striped tie. Jim wore the light coloured jacket with contrasting mid grey slacks. I wonder if Jim saw a detective wearing this type of outfit doing research and copied it? Is this the worst striped tie of the 1980’s? jimbelushi #actionfilm#80sactionfilms#arnoldschwarzenegger#sportsjackrt#plainclothesdetective#stripedtie#redheatfilm
Here are today’s movies...
1. Splatter University - Spectacular 80s film that stereotypes every single college student, all while depicting college as some sort of adult playground. Plot centers around a Catholic priest who is obviously the killer from the instant you see him on screen.
2. Incubus - I’ll admit I got hooked into this because I was promised a Bruce Dickinson cameo, but it turns out to be a horribly paced film, going from long scenes with elaborate pauses to all hell breaking loose in 11 seconds. Again, one-celled organisms know who the killer is and by the end of the film I’m so bored I don’t care.
3. Shotgun - An atrociously awful “action” film where the main protagonist does a bevy of unrealistic things as a cop, including ignoring blatant prostitution, taking in a porno flick with his partner while on duty, and a unrelenting scene of mourning when his sister (also a prostitute) is killed. Again, the killer is very obvious and the ending is very unsurprising.
"I had known Frank Dux for a number of months before I came up with the idea for Bloodsport. Frank told me a lot of tall tales, most of which turned out to be bullshit. But his stories about participating in this so-called "Kumite" event sounded like a great idea for a movie. There was one guy who he introduced me to, named Richard Bender, who claimed to have actually been at the Kumite event and who swore everything Frank told me was true. A few years later this guy had a falling-out with Frank, and confessed to me that everything he told me about the Kumite was a lie; Frank had coached him in what to say." - Sheldon Lettich, Co-writer of Bloodsport
