Europe's "The Final Countdown" as a spaghetti western theme


#21

I don’t miss those days. At all.

I’m just saying imagine how much embarrasing shit we’d have online if we had social media and youtube back in the day… Really, I was making a joke about it with @Mister44.

#33

The horror, the horror

The performer’s name reminded me of this long lost gem of a movie:
Six-String Samurai - Trailer and Full Movie.

That’s an official release from the publisher, but I think the aspect-ratio is off, some of the scenes look funny.


#35

Yes, the greatest post-apocalyptic rockabilly samurai movie ever made!


#36

Could be worse. Exhibit A:


#37

Oh dear god that makes The Final Countdown sound like grammy material.
