In honor of the late, great Powers Boothe, and because Brian had never seen it, Junkfood Cinema's Summer of 87 series makes a detour with Extreme Prejudice. An unfairly obscure Walter Hill mercenary western, Extreme Prejudice boasts a cast and crew that reads like a JFC-specific IMDB. Written by John Milius, scored by Jerry Goldsmith, produced by Vajna and Kassar and we haven't even reached the cast! Boothe, Nick Nolte, Clancy Brown, Michael Ironside, Maria Conchita Alonso, Rip Torn, William Forsythe, Tiny Lister....we just got dizzy.
Themes of honor, friendship, and trusting men above agency, Extreme Prejudice is a fantastic mashup that is half Peckinpah and half...Predator?
Draw down on this week's episode and terminate your boredom with extreme...well, you get the point.
