Enjoy Ohmyjosh’s 5 minute edit of Missing in Action at 90to5 or on youtube 🙂

Missing in Action is a 1984 American action B-movie directed by Joseph Zito and starring Chuck Norris. The concept for the film originated from a story treatment, written by James Cameron in 1983, for the film Rambo: First Blood Part II that was floating around Hollywood at the time. This explains the similar plotlines between Rambo and MIA. Representatives from Cannon Group claimed to have been “inspired” by Cameron’s script and subsequently produced and released the first two Missing in Action films two months before the release of Rambo, in order to avoid copyright violation lawsuits.
Editors on the original were Joel Goodman and Daniel Loewenthal.

Bound

Enjoy Ramanjeet Singh’s 5 minute edit of Bound at 90to5 or on youtube 🙂

Bound is a 1996 American neo-noir crime thriller film written and directed by The Wachowskis. Bound was the first film directed by the Wachowskis, and they took inspiration from Billy Wilder to tell a noir story filled with sex and violence. Financed by Dino De Laurentiis, the film was made on a tight budget with the help of frugal crew members including cinematographer Bill Pope. The directors initially struggled to cast the lesbian characters of Violet and Corky before securing Tilly and Gershon. To choreograph the sex scenes, the directors employed “sex educator” Susie Bright, who also made a cameo appearance in the film.
Bound received positive reviews from film critics who praised the humor and style of the directors as well as the realistic portrayal of a lesbian relationship in a mainstream film. Detractors of the film criticized the excessive violence and superficiality of the plot. The film won several festival awards.
Editor on the original was Zach Staenberg.
