The Vulcan Vault: Josh Johnson Discusses Shadoe Stevens In TRAXX (1988)!!
John Ary here with another installment of The Vulcan Vault. Our month-long event of special guest hosts continues today with the director of the foremost documentary about VHS technology and culture.
]osh Johnson's film Rewind This! premiered at this year's SXSW film festival to very positive reviews (including mine). Today, he's recommending a fine action flick from the 80's that features a bad guy played by Robert Davi, lots of explosions, and an amazing performance from the voice of Hollywood Squares and American Top 40. Shadoe Stevens plays a cookie making, heart breaking, ex-mercenary that wants to clean up the mean streets with as much firepower and hair gel as possible. He is TRAXX!
For some unfathomable reason, Traxx has never made it DVD. Amazon has the VHS tape available here. Also, the book Josh mentioned in the video, Destroy All Movies from The Vulcan Vault's own Bryan Connolly can be found here. If you want to see more episodes of The Vulcan Vault, be sure to subscribe to the AICN YouTube channel and check back in here every Tuesday. Next week we've got another great guest host stopping by... a comedian... voice actor on a couple of great animated TV shows... and a reality show judge. If you want more clues as to his identity, hit me up on Twitter (@john_ary).
