I just watched the protector (1985), directed by james glickenhaus...again. this time, i watched the infamous hong kong version with new scenes directed by jackie chan himself. appalled by glickenhaus' directing style, chan reshot a lot of the action, cut out anything he found objectional, and added a subplot with sally yeh for its release in hong kong. the result is a version with much better action and tighter editing. however, a lot of the new scenes almost feel like they belong in a different movie. despite some strange tonal shifts, this is probably a superior version, however it does lose a bit of that cheesy 80's american cop movie charm. and it still can't compare with other jackie chan movies of the time. again, check you expectations.

The protector (1985), directed by james glickenhaus, was jackie chan's second starring role in an american film. but again, it wasn't successful. despite the disappointing box office returns, i actually really enjoy this movie as a generic 80's american cop movie. the plot is standard and the action is below par, but it's honestly quite fun to see jackie as a dirty harry-type cop. compared to other jackie chan movies at the time, this is certainly a disappointment. but compared to other cheesy cop movies of the 80's, this movie really isn't that bad at all. just check your expectations.

If the clean music cues used in the persuaders are ever found and released on cd, vinyl or digital, the french release of that compilation *might* look like this.

“pick 10 favorite albums that have made an impact on you. post one cover each day. no need to explain. nominate a person each day to do the same.” i got nominated. i don’t usually do these kinds of things, but i thought i would for this one. and i’m going to do it through instagram. i won’t be nominating anyone, just sharing pictures with minimal context. enjoy!

Regram @capedwondersupermanimagery
march 25, 1980: ken thorne began scoring sessions for “superman ii” with a 50-piece orchestra at the music centre (cts studios) at wembley, middlesex, england. john richards served as recording engineer, with bob hathaway returned as music editor. thorne took the original john williams cues and expanded them accordingly to fit within the parameters of the film, which had been locked in except for a few visual effects to be completed. more about ken here: http://ultimateclassicrock.com/ken-thorne-dies/ #christopherreeve #supermanthemovie #capedwonder #superman #supermanmovie #kenthorne #supermansoundtrack
