Bad Rip Offs

Postby Jason Carlton » Mon Jul 19, 1999 5:07 am

What would you say was the WORST Mad Max rip off you've seen. Loads of trash aspiring to be like the Road Warrior was produced in the mid 80's. For instince there was one with Patrick Swayze (Ugh!) as a sword carrying wasteland hero. The movie had a slogan that went like "The action adventure that runs Mad Max off the road" (Aaarrgghh!). I saw another about a group of good folk holding a supply of water in their wasteland compound, while being terrorized by a gang of baddies lead by I believe Adam Ant (?!!) Can anybody else say "Rip Off"!

How about "dead-end drive in"? Mind you I saw this 10(?) years ago......

The first five minutes seemed cool. Society, in decay, and the main character and his brother a tow truck driver with a high performance, armored tow truck go out to pick up wrecks.

Reminded me of the excitement of that scene in MM1, where the chase goes by Fat Nancys and the diner empties, with predators (Goose) and scavengers (a bad-ass sounding F100 tow-truck) take up the chase.

After that, movie (Dead end drive in) was pure s***.

PS--in undubbed MM1, march hare say the Pursuit

Special is "very toey" (non-dubbed say "super-hot") what is the meaning? Is it used much by gearheads in Oz?

"Dead End Drive In"- Oh yeah, that one too! The closing is the exact same as in Mad Max. That high speed shot of the highway ahead - RIP OFF! Another bad one was used on "Mystery Science Theater". The loner in question looked like Gibson, had a black leather coat, but wore tight blue jeans (ha-ha). He rode a talking motorcycle, and in the end helped the good guys fight the baddies and their "Ultimate Machine". Basically a dump truck with big rubber spikes.

Super hot or very toey(whatever) means really fast. When a F1 car runs a really good lap, it was hot. Same goes for the movie.

Toey means a lot of similar things, If someone was toey usually it means they are charged up and ready to go hard therefore often someone is said to be toey if their hormones are obviously pumping and are keen for a shag. this leads to the wonderfull expression "toey as a roman soldier"

a car being toey means similar stuff ie its hotted up and goes hard.
