Default Miami Connection - the new contender for "best/worst" movie?



Miami Connection Blu-ray

http://drafthousefilms.com/film/miami-connection

Fellow lovers of "so bad it is good" cinema, do yourselves a favor and check out the above link for the recently uncovered gem from 1987 - MIAMI CONNECTION!

I don't know about you, but I live for obscure pearls of trash like this. I absolutely cannot wait to see this movie!

Here is a link to recent write-up on Entertainment Weekly's website (there was also a full two page story about the film in print a week or two ago)... http://insidemovies.ew.com/2012/09/1...ction-trailer/

Default Miami Connection on Blu-ray! December 11, 2012

I've never seen this, but it looks like a lot of fun!


"OUR NEW, CRAZY MOVIE OBSESSION!" —Clark Collis, Entertainment Weekly

"AWESOME & PROOF GOD EXISTS...A Psychotronic Masterpiece!" —Mr. Beaks, Ain't It Cool News

"Hilarious Yet Oddly Touching, Goofy, Yet Totally Sincere, This Is One Of The Most Entertainingly Bizarre Movies I've Ever Seen." —Matt Singer, Screencrush

The year is 1987. Motorcycle ninjas tighten their grip on Florida’s narcotics trade, viciously annihilating anyone who dares move in on their turf. Multi-national martial arts rock band Dragon Sound have had enough, and embark on a roundhouse wreck-wave of crime-crushing justice. When not chasing beach bunnies or performing their hit song “Against the Ninja,” Mark (Tae Kwon Do master/inspirational speaker Y.K. Kim) and the boys are kicking and chopping at the drug world’s smelliest underbelly. It’ll take every ounce of their blood and courage, but Dragon Sound can’t stop until they’ve completely destroyed the dealers, the drunk bikers, the kill-crazy ninjas, the middle-aged thugs, the “stupid cocaine”...and the entire MIAMI CONNECTION!!!

Directed by 9th degree black belt philosopher/author/inspirational speaker Grandmaster Y.K. Kim, the film tells the story of fearless synth rock band Dragon Sound as they embark on a roundhouse wreck-wave of crime-crushing justice in the streets of Orlando. Now in HD from elements sourced by the America Genre Film Archive (AGFA), Miami Connection will return to cinemas November 2nd and home video/digital platforms in December 12th.

I'm curious on this title. Looks like a long-lost Cannon Film. I have a few Drafthouse Films Blu-ray and they make some nice special editions.

If anybody wants the gangnam style song out of their head, this song will gladly replace it.
Okay... show me.

I just got the bluray, but if any of those versions come with a CD then I would consider that one since the soundtrack is great!

This movie is a f*cking blast, and highly recommended for movie night and drinks with friends. My pre-order is in. The movie is terrible and great at the same time. It's obvious how much fun was had making it, and some of the improvisations by the bit characters are so insane, you have to see it to believe it. Y.K. Kim is still as enthused, and still as hard to understand, to this day.

Do the song lyrics show up in the subtitles? A few months back, I was talking to a Drafthouse rep via email, and I told them to make a bouncing ninja head sing-along track, but I doubt they did

yes, the lyrics definitely show up during the subtitles - a very important addition to this Blu-ray!

Ah, okay. I would get the "Stupid Cocaine" Edition or higher as they all come with a soundtrack download; but I think I may actually just wait and join the Drafthouse Alliance as a Christmas present to myself and get this as my first blu-ray.

I wish Image releases were region ABC but thankfully they're releasing this on VHS, you know I'ma gobble that up. Cannot wait to watch this.

Wish they included a movie download with the VHS though

For those of you getting the blu-ray, ProTip: turn on the subtitles for the opening credits/first song. If you're not totally on board by the time that song is over, stop the movie and ebay it

Anybody part of the Drafthouse Alliance? I was wondering if anybody could tell me if I choose 'blu-ray' will every title I get be blu-ray or some titles be DVD like with Oscillioscope's Circle of Trust? Or if anybody could give me an e-mail address to contact Drafthouse about this, that would be great.

Oscilloscope's Circle of Trust states that you get the "next 10 Oscilloscope releases on DVD or Blu-ray (when available) straight to your mailbox." Some are DVDs because they don't get released on blu.

The Drafthouse Alliance just says "Choose any Drafthouse Films DVD or Blu-ray from our library. Automatically receive the next 9 new releases to your doorstep before they're available to the public."

I assume the the Drafthouse Alliance films are all blu-ray, since so far everything they've put out has had, or will have, a blu-ray release. But I'd just like to make sure and can't seem to find a way to e-mail them.
