Roller Boogie Reviews
the lead actor sounds like he's got a peg on his nose and wears a 'HEVEN' tee shirt.
while 'jammer' is being threatened a goon bends a screwdriver !!!
jammer shows his fear by not moveing his face ... and then, not 2 minutes later, he is paraleticly drunk stumbling down the stairs.??
watch out 4 the 'THIS IS MY 15 MINUTES, HERE I GO..' fella spinning around in the background after Blair says to Bobby 'can we talk' [or she says something like that] and Bobby says ' ive just gotta do something' gets up, jumps around in the air and sits back down] ...
WHEN GOONES GET OUT OF THEIR MOTOR [ THEY ARE PACKING HEAT BY THE WAY] ...A GOON EVEN BECKONS THE ROLLER SKATERS AS HE WALKS TOWARDS THEM.
then a lone skaters shouts ...
"GET THE DUDES WITH THE FRUIT!"... and the goons run away?
[....watch out 4 the MELLON hitting the door of the car lol . theres a fucking great 'THUD' as it explodes]
theres loads more, but im 2 lazy to write any more.
Also, Linda Blair is a complete fucking ho. What is going through the minds of people who cast her, even in quickie fare meant to cash in on the roller disco craze? Wouldn't it be cheaper to cast some bar skank?
It was a good doublle-bill with The Apple, though. Thanks, tcm
Ok here's some more: terribly dated, totally predictable, badly acted. Yet it's kind of like a car crash that you just feel compelled to look at, when you know you should be looking away.
Ultimately good cheesy fun and not much more.
