Andy Sidaris-Bullets, Bombs and Babes movies on bluray question

So I was in my local used dvd shop and found a movie called Enemy Gold on bluray and decided on a blind buy. These were the B movies I would find on VHS in rental stores but they were always on the top shelf. I'm going to start buying all these movies but I was wondering how many movies are in this series and will they all make it to bluray?

So you can always pick this up. 12 film DVD set that has all of his goodies.

https://www.amazon.com/Girls-Guns-G-Strings-Sidaris-Collection/dp/B004HHX9OQ/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=andy+sidaris+collection&qid=1591243918&sprefix=andy+sida&sr=8-1 https://www.amazon.com/Girls-Guns-G-Strings-Sidaris-Collection/dp/B004HHX9OQ/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=andy+sidaris+collection&qid=1591243918&sprefix=andy+sida&sr=8-1



Or you can splurge and get the recent Mill Creek blu rays with remastered video and some extras.

Unless you get them really cheap, I am not sure I would blind buy them all. Some are much better than others in this group even for B-movies. A few are not very rewatchable in my opinion.

Malibu Express is still my all time favorite of these. A tongue-in-cheek Magnum P.I rip-off with boobies galore. And some decent humor.

I have the 12 film DVD set and itís pretty great for what it is and itís quite cheap usually, or as suggested you could spend more and get the films individually on Blu. One of the best Sidaris films not in this 12 film series is ďSevenĒ and itís out on Blu from Kino, here it is: https://smile.amazon.com/Seven-Blu-r...en+andy&sr=8-1

I got Enemy Gold for $13.99 and I checked Amazon and it was selling for $18.99. Even if a few are not watchable they'll still have some T & A in them.

Cheaper way to watch them all would be to just subscribe to Full Moon streaming on Amazon or their official app for a month or two.

BD or digital would probably be the way to go for these. I got one of the DVD sets, and a few of the discs had playback issues.

Re: Andy Sidaris-Bullets, Bombs and Babes movies on bluray question

The nice thing about the Blu-rays is the inclusion of the Andy Sidaris audio commentaries and behind-the-scenes footage, which appeared on early disc releases (in the BCI/Eclipse 3-packs, I think?), but then weren't ported over to those Mill Creek 12-packs. I believe that Mill Creek DVD set does include the Sidaris intros, which are kinda fun, but his commentaries are pretty good if you enjoy that kind of thing. I've bought most of the Blus so far; still need a couple but they're lesser titles (I find the first six or seven to be the most fun). And of course, once I've got them all they'll probably collect them into a space-saving boxed set at a cheaper price.

Malibu Express is like watching a 70s porn without the hardcore sex.

Re: Andy Sidaris-Bullets, Bombs and Babes movies on bluray question

Some have speculated that Mill Creek will issue the entire 12-movie set on Blu-ray once their existing stock dwindles of individual movies. The movies themselves are uneven - some a lot of fun while others are boring retreads. The BDs are pretty well done given how low-budget Andy's movies usually were in the 1980s. I had no idea that Roger Moore's son was a frequent player in them.

Well I have the entire collection except the two movies that come out next week. Guns just came in the mail and I'm watching it now. Out of all the movies I like this one the least but its fun to see a younger Danny Trejo in it.

Re: Andy Sidaris-Bullets, Bombs and Babes movies on bluray question

I went through all of them a couple of weeks ago and found that the only ones I really felt like upgrading to Blu-ray was Malibu Express and Hard Ticket To Hawaii. Once you have seen those two, in my opinion, you have seen the best of them and all the rest are missing the charm, wink in their eye, etc. And let's just be frank...all of them are basically the same movie with a different pair of tits in them. So the first two are good for me. The rest, I don;t care if I watch again. I found almost all of them to be kinda dull.

Anyone here seen Seven, his earliest of these kind of films from 1979? I love me some William Smith and didn't even realize Sidaris did a stock movie like these before Malibu Express until I was going thru the Kino sale a few weeks ago. I had never even heard of it.

Yes, I guess you didnít see what I wrote in post #6 above. Seven is on a whole different plateau of film from Sidarisí later work. Itís like a legit film, not nearly as schlocky and sleazy as Malibu Express and those others, but still great on its own level. Itís largely filmed in Hawaii so the visuals are beautiful. As a horror fan it was cool to see a short appearance here from Reggie Nalder (Mark of the Devil, Salemís Lot) as a rapist, and heís actually not dubbed in this film so you can actually hear what voice sounds like. Anyway, yes, the film is great, get it!
