This time, I watched a film I had read a ton about, “Miami Connection.” The story behind this film (correct me if I’m wrong) is that it was made in the 80’s and but then wasn’t really seen for decades until Drafthouse Films took the film and restored it for blue ray release in 2012. Here is the plot description from IMDB:
“A martial arts rock band goes up against a band of motorcycle ninjas who have tightened their grip on Florida’s narcotics trade.”
I was hooked on this movie after the first few minutes. It was so terrible, that I loved every second of it. The music, the costumes, the terrible acting-this movie had everything.
One of my favorite lines in the movie came after a scene where this guy and his goons were trying to get the martial arts rock band, “Dragon Sound”, to stop playing the club. They of course got their asses kicked so they went to this other guys clubhouse (which appeared to be just a gym/dojo) to ask for their assistance and to strike a deal with him and his gang. After they make a deal, the guy tells him:
“One more thing I should warn you about. These guys are black belts at Tae Kwon Do and are pretty bad.”
I nearly pissed myself
This movie is a riot, and when the Black Belt Band plays their music, you get full performances. Normally I’d be annoyed with something like this, but in this case, you can’t wait until you get to hear the next song! The band plays full performances shirtless with Karate pants and black belts. It’s unreal and I suggest you watch it now!
First the trailer:
