There are so many great cops out there in television and film land. John McClane, Martin Riggs, Andy Griffith and countless others. They sometimes use unorthodox tactics but they get the job done and always stop the bad guy. Sure Riggs was missing a few screws but he always saved the day in the end. Same for John McClane. Ok he destroyed some property but he saved countless lives from terrorists. And I must point out he fired a rifle into the air to save hostages. He, much like the other great cops did everything they could to not put innocent people at risk. I’m not saying this type of reckless behavior is acceptable it’s just in the case of most of these fictional law enforcement officials it’s a necessary evil. However there are a select few that are just horrible at their job. In fact I question how they have never been fired or let alone suspended. So here without any question are the worst cops in film and television history.
3) Luke Hobbs (The Rock Fast and Furious Franchise) : Talk about a danger to anyone walking around. Luke Hobbs is a cop who when we first meet him has been sent to Brazil to track down Dominic Toretto and his crew. Hobbs gets a lead right off the bat and heads to a shanty town to find these fugitives. Unfortunately other bad guys are there, and every time Hobbs encounters one he kills them. Now how did he know they were bad guys? He never said drop your weapons, or freeze, or even don’t move. Nope just murders then in cold blood. Then when the bad guy kills his partners he decides to work with the criminals he came to apprehend. He helps them rob a bank vault in broad daylight and even lets them go.
Again he still wasn’t fired and comes back again. This time him and his new female partner, who he keeps sexually harassing (always talking about her ass) go to interrogate a prisoner. By interrogate I mean he beats the crap out the guy. Just destroys him, and still gets no good info. So the, realizing he cant possibly capture a master terrorist he goes and asks Dom and his team for help, and in return he will give them full pardons. How does he have that kind of authority? Who asks crooks for help? He pays them off and they do, after destroying things on multiple continents, bring the bad guys to justice. But that's only after he draws his gun on an Army Sergeant and destroys a plane. Luckily he gets his arm broken early on in the next encounter and he only destroys a few city blocks with a chain gun.
But somehow he still isn’t fired and is asked to do a top secret job, that he messes up completely. Sure Dom turns on him, but come on. He could have prevented it. Because of this they finally lock his ass up. But he just fights during a prison riot, beats up countless guards, escapes, and joins forces with the guy he arrested in the first place. In fact he teams up with the same guy again down the road. So he is a violent menace who sexually harasses partners, beats up people for interrogation, and shoots first always. The only reason, only reason he is not number one is because he actually helped to save the free world a couple times. So that keeps him low on this list.
2) Reno Raines (Lorenzo Lamas Renegade): The opening title narration tells you “He was a cop and good at his job” well guess what? He sucked. In fact he’s a total moron. Reno Raines was asked by his DA buddy to do an off the books undercover investigation. See down in Bay City there is an entire gang of dirty cops. Murder for hire, drugs, gambling, protection rackets, you name it. These guys are bad news. Now when we first meet Reno he isn’t on a stake out, no he’s surfing. Yup surfing. Not even taking his job seriously. Hell he even dragged his poor fiancé with him and kept her shacked up at a cheap motel. Going on a dangerous mission and just brings this innocent woman along with no regard for her safety. Well Reno does win over one of the cops and gets the scoop on all the bad stuff going down. So what does he do you ask? He calls a meeting with the boss of this team. Yes these crooked cops all work under one Lieutenant, Dutch Dixon. Now I’m not Sherlock Holmes but I know enough to know that if an entire group of people are juiced up and dirty their boss is probably in on it as well. So he tells Dutch he’s got all the evidence he needs, his testimony against there’s. So he clearly didn’t record anything. Nope he just played along and his big plan was to go to court and use his word against a group of guys. That would never hold up.
But the dirty cops are real dirty so they go to Reno’s locker, which I assume was unlocked and steal his gun. They also decide to kill him so they spring a felon out of jail and give him the address of the flop house motel he is at. But when the door is kicked in his fiancé jumps up and gets shot instead. See, you drag a civilian along on a mission and bad things can happen. He grabs her, runs out the door, and while he’s heading to the hospital Dutch shoots one of the cops with Reno’s gun, framing him for the murder of an officer. Now see, had Reno invested in say a 25.00 tape recorder or maybe even a Mr. Microphone he could have recorded some of these talks and cleared his name. But no, he didn’t. He goes on the run and eventually becomes a bounty hunter for SixKiller Enterprises and works hard to clear his name. He also never bothers to change his appearance, hide his custom motorcycle with flames painted on the tank, and oh yeah. Every time he meets someone he tells them who he really is. This guy was a moron. Luckily he worked for people who were smart enough to keep him out of jail. And in his only redeeming quality, his insane tactics made him a great bounty hunter so he did keep bad guys off the street’s
1) Officer Jack Tavern (Keanu Reeves in Speed): Shoot the hostage! I should not have say anything further, but I will. Jack Tavern, the hotshot bomb squad guy is a liability in every sense of the word. In fact from the get go we know he’s a menace. When his equally incompetent partner Harry (dumber from Dumb and Dumber fame) is taken hostage by crazy mad bomber Howard Payne he is unable to handle the situation properly. Lets keep in mind Howard Payne (Dennis Hopper) was an old man. Rather than Harry just throwing an elbow, and simply stepping on his foot to end this mess he is simply helpless. Enter Jack who has a clear shot at Howard’s head, arm, left leg, basically the entire left side of his body. What’s he do? He shoots his partner in the leg so he falls down to help him get a better shot. Problem is he doesn’t take it. Howard runs away and detonates a bomb.
Now if that’s not horrible enough Jack gets a call from Howard (because he was also to slow to run after and catch the elderly man) the next day. Howard tells him a bus has been rigged with a bomb that will activate when the bus hits 50mph. If said bus slows down it will explode. If anyone leaves the bus it will explode. So Jack steals a mans car and goes in hot pursuit to find the bus, which has already been triggered. Now he doesn’t just say he’s commandeering the vehicle, oh no. He pushed the guy aside and goes on a dangerous chase with the pedestrian in it. Endangering an innocent life again. He gets on the bus and thanks to his recklessness the driver gets shot. Rather than take control of the situate Jack has a passenger get behind the wheel to drive the bus. He makes this poor woman crash through things, jump a bridge, you name it. After messing around for what seems like hours he is getting nowhere. He calls his stupid partner who thanks to him is now on desk duty, and they still get nowhere. Finally after destroying countless amounts of property Jack figures out how to get everyone off the bus but it still blows up. This guy was an absolute menace.
So there you go, three cops who make Detective Lieutenant Frank Drebin look like a MENSA candidate.

In another major reshuffling of its release calendar, Disney is pushing 2020 event pics Black Widow and West Side Story to next year amid challenges posed by the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic.
Marvel's female superhero pic, starring Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, had been set to hit the big screen Nov. 6. It will now open May 7, 2021. In turn, Marvel's Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is being pushed from the May 7 date to July 9, 2021. (Marvel's Eternals also has a new date.)
Steven Spielberg's West Side Story, from 20th Century and Amblin, is being delayed almost an entire year, moving from Dec. 18 to Dec. 10, 2021. Disney isn't giving up its seat at the 2020 Christmas table entirely and is relocating 20th Century's Death on the Nile from Oct. 23 to Dec. 18.
Black Widow's exit from the early November calendar is bad news for exhibitors who need tentpoles as they reopen

John Cena, who will portray the role of Peacemaker in James Gunn's upcoming The Suicide Squad movie, is set to headline a TV offshoot of the same DC character. The show, titled Peacemaker, will be an eight-episode series that has been ordered by HBO Max.
According to Deadline, the new straight-to-series show will explore the origins of the character that Cena plays in the 2021 movie, which also stars Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, and Taika Waititi.
"I have said before that it has been a tremendous honor and an incredible opportunity to be part of The Suicide Squad and to work with James on what is going to be a fantastic movie. I am unbelievably excited to have the chance to team up with him again for Peacemaker. We can't wait for fans to see this," Cena said through a statement.
In 1988 film goers were treated to a new action hero. His name was Jericho “Action” Jackson. He was played by the great Carl Weathers. Jackson was a cop battling the evil Craig T Nelson (yes the guy from Coach). The plot was a bit convoluted. Nelson was Peter Dellaplane an automotive manufacturer of some sort who is having union leaders murdered so he can assume control over the automotive union, or something like that. Jackson and Dellaplane hate each other as years before Jackson busted his son and in the process ripped his arm off, but like he told the captain “He had a spare” That little burst of police brutality got Jackson busted down to a Sergeant, and we also learn his obsession with Dellaplane cost him his marriage.
Well Jackson meets with a friend, or snitch, or something, its not exactly clear and learns that Dellaplane, like he always knew was dirty and now he’s behind these murders. Dellaplane’s own wife (A very young Sharon Stone) even reaches out to help Jackson, but Dellaplane murders her and plants the body in Jackson’s apartment. Now, on the run Jackson must get the help of Dellaplane’s mistress, singer / heroine or morphine addict Sydney Ash (Vanity) and clear his name and bring Dellaplane down.
What you get in 90min of action, no pun intended. From classic one liners like “How do you like your ribs?” before a guy is shot and burned, to a simple “Now you pissed me off!” when Jackson “hulks” up and beats down Dellaplane in the final fight. Everyone involved did a fantastic job. The stunt work was great, in fact all the action sequences were top notch. I mean you had the late great Chino “Fats” Williams playing Kid Sable and beating up Al Leong. Branscombe Richmond with a Spanish accent trying to cut off Jacksons balls to keep in a jar in a pool hall. Even the late great Sonny Landham got in on the action as a heroine dealer Jackson throws through a window. This should have ushered in a new action hero for the masses. Problem is it didn’t. In fact the film, although successful at the box office, and popular with the crowds never produced a sequel. But what if I told you it really did have a sequel? In fact what if I told you there have been four so far. 3 feature films, and 1 television show. Blows your mind right? You think I’m crazy right? Well I may be, but let me simply explained it all to you.
Following the events of Action Jackson, Jackson was clearly still haunted by the events of the film. His relationship with Sydney clearly went nowhere as she must have gotten back on the smack, hence why she was not in this second part. So Jackson decided to change his name, I assume for bringing down a dirty car maker guy the feds helped him do this and he became a police officer under the name Adam Boudreaux. This was the television spin off entitled Street Justice. See Jackson, now Adam had really started looking deeper into his past and became determined to find a young man named Grady Jameson. Grady saved Adams life when he was just a child during Vietnam. Grady and Adam bonded until Adam returned back home. For the record when he came home he must have become Action Jackson, because this once again is the sequel. Grady fell on hard times and went to the pen where he became a martial arts master. Adam and Grady reconnect and as Adam must have had some money saved and owns a bar he puts Grady to work there. Together they fight crime while searching for the men who killed Grady’s parents back in Vietnam.
Unfortunately the killers were never found so Jackson, now Adam, decided he needed a change. He left the force, moved to Texas and became an oil worker in the third part of this series entitled Hurricane Smith He shaved off his mustache to help remain incognito, and dropped the nickname “Action” he decided instead to be known as “Hurricane” In fact he got a whole new name, Billy Smith. Things are going good until he gets word that his mother has passed away. Its then we learn he has a sister, who he doesn’t just want to call and tell her their mom died. No he decides to go and tell her in person. Only thing, her last known address was in Australia. Billy fly’s over and learns his sister is missing and caught up in a gang war. Seems two rival gangs are battling it out over the drug trade. Luckily Billy is a one man army and he teams up with a kind hearted hooker, and her kind hearted pimp to bring the gangs down and rescue his sister.
Now sadly Billy was not a cop during these events in Australia and no doubt was arrested for multiple murders. Luckily he still had some connections so after working with the government he was given again a new identity. This time though the Feds clearly had enough of his violent hot dog antics and told him it was time to put all the “Action” and “Hurricane” business behind him. In fact they wanted him to start living a quiet life after all these years of violence and heartbreak. He decided they were right and simply retired, becoming a golfer as he was still young. He was very successful and went pro. He adopted the new identity of Chubbs Peterson. Sadly his hand was taken from him by an alligator while playing in a tournament so he settled down and became a resident Club Pro and teach golf to people at the local clubhouse. We learn all of this in the 3rd film of the series Happy Gilmore.
Now going by Chubbs we find everything is going nice and quiet for our former hero. In fact a bit too quiet. So when he meets a hockey player named Happy Gilmore he decides to help him put his slapshot style swing to good use and become a pro golfer. Its there we see the kinder gentler side of the former Action Jackson who mentors this dim witted young man, and helps make him a golf pro. Unfortunately the golf life isn’t what its cracked up to be and Chubbs still misses his hand. So when Happy brings him the body of the alligator who ate it he decides its time to fake his death. He falls out a window, and a fake funeral is held for him. I assume they simply buried the alligators body.
So now we come to the final (so far anyways) installment of this classic series that has now spanned generations and find Action, Hurricane, Chubbs, now going by his real name Freddie Wiseman. See although its not mentioned, in fact all of these name changes are not mentioned in these films. I assume they were edited out for time. Turns out before he was even Acton Jackson, Freddie played pro ball for the Raiders as a linebacker, and then with the BC Lions in Canada after that. Well Freddy is now too old to play ball, and he’s defiantly getting to old for that shit on the police force so he has taken up one of his great passions and become a football coach in the film The Comebacks.
Yes Freddie is coaching the undefeated Lone Star State Unbeatables. He even got his old coaching pal Lambeau Fields to coach a rival team called The Comebacks. A rotten team in every sense of the word that Lambeau manages to whip into shape with his unorthodox coaching skills. In fact he whips then into such good shape that Freddie snaps, hops in the teams bus and runs Lambeau down on the field. Luckily by the grace of God he doesn’t die, just gets dirty actually and Freddie drives off into the night laughing manically.
So what’s next? Well we don’t know. As these films come out so sporadically no one knows what could happen next. Clearly Freddie will be wanted for murder if Lambeau presses charges. But if not he could simply be coaching, or maybe he opened a new bar. Possible he became a detective. I like to think he moved back to Detroit, fixed his 1965 Impala he obviously had to have had in storage all these years and is now running the hotel that the late Kid Sable used to own. Maybe he’s even helping out the force from time to time. Hopefully one day we will find out. But for now just know that these films still have life left in them.
Joseph Michael Laurinaitis, a.k.a. Road Warrior Animal, has reportedly passed away at the age of 60.
Laurinaitis' family is planning to release a statement later today. No other details are known.
Its not secret I am a big fan of the late great William “Sonny” Landham. I love trying to say “Sonny Landham” in his trademark voice. I fail miserably but its fun. Sonny, for those who are unfamiliar had a very long Hollywood career. Billy Bear in 48hrs. Billy Sole in Predator, Chink Weber in Lock Up an much much more. His career spanned from 1969 all the way till 2009. Sadly he passed away from Heart Failure in 2017. I never had the chance to speak with him, but recently I spoke with Branscombe Richmond who told a few great Sonny Landham stories. It actually made me go back and watch a few of his films. And after viewing one of them I can honestly say that his best film is not 48hrs or Predator. Sure those are classics, but if you want to see a great acting turn you need to watch the classic 1993 Arena of Death classic Best of the Best 2.
Now lets go back for just a second. Sonny’s first “Big” role was as Billy Bear in 48hrs. He was the main bad guy next to the great James Remar. They were being chased by Nic Nolte and Eddie Murphy. It was Murphy’s first big starring role as well. Sonny was great as Billy Bear but lets face facts, we didn’t get to see any real acting chops. He breaks James Remar out of prison in the beginning. His truck is overheating and he approaches the chain gang Remar is working as says to the guard “Can I have some water please sir?” Remar responds “Fire water, that’s what you need!” to which Sonny says “You got a big mouth convict!” . They fight and its revealed he’s Remar’s buddy and he escapes. That in a nutshell are his lines. Aside from a grunt here and there he really says nothing. He’s imposing, evil looking, but he didn’t show off his skills yet.
Now we go to Predator. The alien in the jungle Arnold Schwarzenegger classic. Sony is Billy Sole. He’s one of the commandos on Arnolds team and an expert tracker. He knows that there is an evil force watching them in the jungles that clearly is not human but he’s still killed. He has a few more lines, but he’s there to just be imposing, something he was good at. I mean lets face it he was 6’ 3” and well over 220lbs. Just a big guy. He played the “Heavy” more so than the hero
Let’s take another classic film he was in, Lock Up with Stallone. Sonny was Chink Webber. The local tough guy in prison. The evil warden wants Chink to provoke a fight with Stallone causing him to serve a longer sentence. It’s a weird story, but still good. Sonny is imposing to say the least, and has a great fight with Stallone in the yard while its snowing, but he once again doesn’t talk much. He says things like “Come on Leone (Stallone’s character)!” and “What are you gunna do Leone?!” That’s about it. Once again I must reiterate he was good just didn’t have much to say or have a backstory. But all of that changed in 1993.
Best of the Best was a 1989 feel good sports film. Phillip Rhee, Eric Roberts, and Christopher Penn were fighters on the US Taekwondo team. There coach, James Earl Jones is preparing them to fight the Korean team. The standard stuff happens. The team doesn’t get along or bond in the beginning but they come together in the end. And when Tommy Lee (Phillip Rhee) is unable to finish his opponent Dae Han (Simon Rhee), as he knows a final blow would kill him, the clock runs out and they lose. But, the Korean team in a sign of respect all line up and present their medals to the USA Team. Kisses and hugs everyone is happy. It was a popular film that spawned sequels. And in the case of the sequel being better, this is the best example.
In 1993 Rhee, Roberts, and Penn returned for Best of the Best 2. This time they three friends have started their own dojo. Penn however is making side money fighting in an underground fighting arena called “The Coliseum” that’s ran by Wayne Newton. Yes that Wayne Newton. He is killed by the champion Brakus in the beginning and this entire fight was witnessed by Walter, the young son of Eric Roberts. He runs to tell his dad and Tommy Lee what happened, and after a confrontation with Barakus, and lets not forget an attempt on their lives, Alex and Tommy take Walter and get out of town to not only hide out, but to train for revenge because that’s what action heroes do.
Now they go to hide out at Tommy’s Grandmothers farm. Tommy’s Grandmother is Native American and when they arrive she tells them that Tommy’s uncle James can help them. Problem is James was in an accident years earlier and came home a drunk. James is of course Sonny Lanham. When Tommy and Alex approach him we see James laying on a car hood with a big Stetson pulled over his eyes, untucked shirt, and completely disheveled. He’s got his bottle of Jack Daniels with him and he’s clearly drunk. After a brief argument he and Tommy come to blows. Now James is no punk and he does not only nail Tommy good, but he sucker punches Alex as well. Tommy fires back with a few kicks to which James just sticks out his chin and replies “Those kick got some snap boy” They he calls a time out to puke. Yes he was drunk, in fact took a swig before the fight and calls time out to throw up. After puking he’s ready to go again but the others laugh and simply walk away. Now right there, that’s a tough guy. Drunk, fights, pukes, ready to fight again.
James Mother approaches him later that night, or a few days later, we don’t know. And tells him he needs to help Tommy with his problems. He responds by handing her a dollar bill and saying “Here’s a dollar, tell him to get a nice bowl of soup” I must also say he’s completely drunk. She tells him he’s a drunk and not the son she knew and if he wont help to pack his bags. Well that’s the kick in the ass he needs as next morning he’s completely sober. His Stetson is on straight and his shirt is tucked in. He finds Tommy and Alex and tells them what really happened to him. He was a fighter, who competed in the coliseum. The accident he was in, which left scars all over his stomach was no accident. It happened at the hands of Brakus. He them takes off his hat and says “I am one of five men who can teach you to beat Brakus, and if your not to proud I will teach you.”
And teach them he does. He shows then new fighting techniques, and then teaches them to use the staff. They need this as if you advance in the preliminary rounds you fight with weapons. Plus we also get another awesome training montage. Then he takes them to a hut out in the desert for a purification ceremony, also know as a sweat lodge. Alex wants to leave but James tells him “Brakus would stay, even if it meant dying!” Alex stays. Tommy experiences visions and the group stay in for the night. Unfortunately James story comes to an end as Brakus’s men find them and in a gun battle James is killed trying to save Tommy. Tommy is taken to the coliseum where he does eventually defeat and kill Brakus. Which he would not have been able to do with Sonny Landham.
So there you have it. You know him from countless films, but if you want to really see Sonny in action watch Best of the Best 2. Not only is it a great film, but it really showcases his talents. RIP William M. “Sonny” Landham. Hopefully I can hear more great stories about you to share with the world.
Jackie Stallone, celebrity astrologer, women's wrestling promoter and mother of actors Sylvester and Toni D'Alto and singer Frank, has died. She was 98.
"This morning my brothers and I lost our mother," Frank Stallone wrote in a Facebook post. "She died in her sleep as she had wished. It was hard not to like her, she was very eccentric and flamboyant person," he added.
A larger-than-life character with three famous children, Stallone achieved success and notoriety of her own as one of America's foremost psychics and authored several books on astrology. She was also a champion of women's fitness and was a key figure promoting G.L.O.W., the women's wrestling company, which had its heyday in the 1980s.
