My memories of the drive-in are what inspires my love of hokey, cheesy movies. Youthful years spent sitting in the backseat of a car with my friends, our bare feet over the front seat, a paper grocery sack filled with candy and junk food, frosty sodas and beers in a cooler, and a movie we didn’t care about on the screen. The night was more about laughing, making ourselves sick on sugar, and talking.
The sillier the movie, the more fun we had. That’s why I still love watching that genre of movie. My husband is a good sport and often watches them with me. Basically, we watch them so you don’t have to. First up, Assassin!
1986, a made for TV movie, starring Robert Conrad. A retired agent from an Intelligence Agency is contacted by the Agency in order to stop an ultra-secret robot who is killing some government officials.
This movie was on the same disc as THE CRATER LAKE MONSTER. Its feel ala The Six Million Dollar Man caught our attention, so we watched.
Was it great? No, but we had fun watching it thinking of bionic people. The plot really lags for a bit before the big finale, but overall it was good-bad. Be on the look out for the creepy shoulder touch. What? Husband Unit is still laughing. You’ll have to watch.
I give this a ONE BEER rating. One is enough to have fun watching the ASSASSIN.
