While scouring the bowels of Netflix hell, we came across ‘Cloak & Dagger’ from 1984. While we all miss the way children’s movies used to be a bit more edgey, for example Goonies & Gremlins, this takes it to a whole new level. The film is centered around 11-year-old Davey, whose mother is dead and whose father doesn’t spend nearly enough time with him. When he accidentally comes into possession of a spy group’s secret Cloak & Dagger Atari 5200 game, the adventure really begins. He must learn to rely on himself, his best friend Kim, and his imaginary pal Jack Flack to save his skin. This kid is constantly shot at, almost stabbed, and almost run over, not to mention blown sky high via a bomb made just to blow up a little girl. The bad guys in this go to some crazy extremes to kill this kid, even after they have the game cartridge they are looking for. If you love kids movies from the 80’s, check out this wild ride on Netflix.
Next week we watch ‘Hell Comes To Frogtown’ starring Rowdy Roddy Piper. This film was suggested to us on our facebook page, so remember if you have any suggestions let us know. Sam Hell is the prisoner of a female faction who took over the US after nuclear war. With a bomb strapped to his crotch, Hell is forced to rescue a group of fertile women from an evil mutant gang. Sounds like its going to be a real treat!
Remember every movie we watch is available for streaming on Netflix or YouTube! [Unless we say otherwise]
