Patron Exclusive Review Episode 84

The Ward Is Not Enough

Fred Ward (Tremors) tried to convince movie audiences in 1985 that he had “the right stuff” to be the American James Bond when he starred as pulp novel hero Remo Williams. Would the wannabe action star move more like Bruce Lee if he wasn’t learning kung fu from song-and-dance man Joel Grey in yellowface? Or be closer to nabbing a corrupt defense contractor if he didn’t get his intel from Quaker Oats pitchman Wilford Brimley working a supercomputer? The Adventure Begins when you become a September Now Playing Patron.
