In this episode of More Movies Weekly, Greg and Dave discuss Class of 1984 (1982), the crime action exploitation film directed by Mark L. Lester and co-written by Tom Holland and starring Perry King, Michael J. Fox and Roddy McDowall. The film follows a music teacher arriving at a rundown high school, who is shocked to see the students dealing drugs and indulging in other illegal activities. He decides to help them by all means necessary.
Before long, Andrew Norris, learns firsthand that it’s even worse than it looks, as the drug-plagued institution in Class of 1984 is the territory of the charismatic Peter Stegman and his brutal gang of crazed followers. Now, under those dire circumstances, it’s only a matter of time before the professor and the pupil lock horns, with unforeseen consequences. But, do drastic times call for drastic measures? In the end, is there a cure for violence?
They also discuss Letitia Wright’s injury on Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022) and speculate on how the movie will be approached, the casting of Megan Fox & 50 Cent in The Expendables 4 (TBC) and what it means for the future of this franchise, the poster and trailer for the upcoming new Netflix film The Power of the Dog (2021), based on the novel of the same name by Thomas Savage and starring stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Thomasin McKenzie, Genevieve Lemon, Keith Carradine, and Frances Conroy, aswell as other movie news.
