    Great movie and even better soundtrack. This movie is the “Top Gun” for preteen males who love action more than a storyline. All this, plus Lou Gosset Jr. equates to 80’s movies gold. The dogfight scenes (along with the music) steals the show and I personally believe they haven’t been bested yet.

    Please, from the bottom of my heart, review the “King of New York”. In my mind it’s the 90’s version of “Scarface”.

    Great job guys. I started listening to HMP and wandered over to your show and I’m hooked. Great balance of self indulgence, potty humor, ridiculousness and a dash of actual intellectual discussion.

    • Hi Another Guy Named Andy,

      Thanks for the comment and kind words! I swear I’m going to start using “Great balance of self-indulgence, potty humor, ridiculousness and a dash of actual intellectual discussion” as a way to describe RMG. 🙂
