MR. T APPRECIATION SCREENING! Sunday at 7:10 PM at The Ritz...CHEAP!
Some people are under the impression that Barack Obama is America's first black president. This isn't the case. In the '80s, Mr. T was our guiding light, a masculine but sympathetic force of moral leadership who eclipsed mere politics with his universal teachings on values, truth, and not being a foo.
Of all his screen work, chaotic action/comedy D.C. CAB best showcases this man's superhuman powers as he cruises through our nation's capital at 30 cents per mile, along with the terrifyingly spastic Gary Busey, pop star Irene Cara, pugnacious identical twin bodybuilders The Barbarian Brothers, a synthesizer-wielding Bill Maher (!), plus tons of car crashes, blowtorches, Halloween creatures, male strip clubs, the Angel of Death, and laffs laffs LAFFS.
It's a hyperactive typhoon of blue collar funnyboners as these hard-workin' schmoes end up going fist-to-fist with every opposing force they can find, narrowly escaping doom with a combination of muscles, hilarity and boneheaded genius.
Another wrongly disregarded goldmine of '80s wildness is resurrected in 35mm for one night only. Failure to attend = complete failure as a human being. ZZANG!!!
