Watched another one of the infamous biker flicks produced by American International Pictures. Born Losers was fucking great.
It clocked in at 2 hours. Pretty rare for a 60's biker flick to be that long. Anyway, it ruled, so it's all good.
This is the first in a series of flicks about a character named Billy Jack. I've never seen the other movies and I don't care to. But Born Losers is where it all kicked off. It's got all the trappings of a true biker flick: swazis, rape, terrorizing a peaceful town, incompetent fuzz, you name it...But no bar right for some reason.
Anyway, I streamed it on Amazon and the transfer was outstanding. It looked freakin HD, which is very rare because normally the transfers are pretty shitty and grainy. The cinematography had a sort of documentary feel to it.
Not much in the way of fuzzed-out guitar. It didn't have much of a score. It was more bare-bones.
Acting ranged from abysmal to pretty good in some instances, most notably the prez form the Born Losers, D.C. Oh, speaking of D.C., his gang-members included Crabs (so called because he had the STD of the same name), Child (named after the Christ Child), Speechless (who was a deaf mute) and Gangrene (who I imagine had gangrene at some point).
The plot was crap. They really milked the two hours getting to the point. In fact, there's not point in talking about the point. It's pointless.
No boobs. But quite a few androgynous chicks, and some real hotties in bikinis. The main chick rides around in go-go boots and a white bikini on her Honda. Pretty rad.
There's a scene where a couple of the dudes kiss each other for kicks. Ummm..yeah.
There were some classic lines in the film. It didn't disappoint script-wise. You had the cop who said something like, "Listen up faggot, how about you and I go down to the station and I lock you in the cell with me. We'll see who makes it out alive." (or something to that effect) And the craziest/best line delivered from the chick in go-go boots, "You know the old saying, if rape is inevitable you might as well relax and enjoy it."
Alright, I've dropped enough jazz on your mind for now. Go watch the movie.
