Self Defense (1983) aka Siege

Directed by Paul Donovan and Maura O'Connell

Starring Tom Nardini, Brenda Bazinet and Daryl Haney


My Letterboxd review

"A fairly rare Canadian "siege" film which feels like Assault On Precinct 13 meets Home Alone. It also builds a subtle slasher vibe as the film progresses. It starts out strong with some nasty violence, sags a little for the next 20 as the situation is established but then moves quickly after that. Maybe for Canadian cult completists only, but I'd recommend a watch. My copy was a very dark VHS rip."

Nighthawks (1981)

TV Spot

Soundtrack: Keith Emerson - Main Theme

Directed by Bruce Malmuth

Starring Sylvester Stallone, Rutger Hauer and Billy Dee Williams


My Letterboxd Review:

"Way better than I expected. I put this one off for a while and I'm not sure why. Rutger Hauer in one of his best roles and he's never been more evil than in this. Some of Stallone's lines were a little weak/predictable but he's convincing too. Great grimy NYC atmosphere. High recommend."
