I'm so glad you posted this. This is one of the best worst movies ever made. Like the new avatar to.

Wow, that was fucking awful. I remember the tagline "deeds not words" from ads in comic books back in the day. I always thought that guy depicted in the ad was Chuck Norris.

I can't do bandannas. I rock headwear like hats, sandanas, and headbands. That's about it.

Tight enough that no one has any doubts about the exact size and shape of your junk. Megaforce was made back in that hilarious period of the 80s where being macho apparently meant acting as gay as humanly possible (see also Top Gun).

A fun fact about the movie, it apparently cost $20 million to make in 1982. To give some context Return of the Jedi was made for $30 million.

He was ripped and could dance while being of a more traditionally manly type, amongst other things.

I just have one thing to say to Her Majesty on this July 4th:

"They were basically like D&D min maxers, but instead of pissing off their DM, they destroyed the global economy. Also, instead of their DM making a level 7 paladin fight a beholder as punishment, he got a +3 sword of turning."
