J-Men Forever J-Men Forever

Category: Video
Working from some old black and white Republic serials from the '30s and '40s, Proctor & Bergman edited and re-dubbed them in 1979 to create the hilarious pastiche J-Men Forever. They added connecting segments where Bergman plays The Chief and Proctor plays Agent Barton, J-Men who work in cooperation with the F.C.C. (Federal Culture Control). They lock horns with uber-villain Lightning Bug, embodied by garish villains from several different serials, who attempts to take over the world with rock'n'roll (adding sex and drugs when the music alone doesn't work). To battle the Lightning Bug, J-Men use "Muzac" (created by M.U.S.A.C., the Military Underground Sugared Airwaves Command). Later, they deploy a bomb to blow up Lightning Bug's base on the Moon (Lightning Bug beats them to it, by turning his stereo up too loud).

Folks, you cannot imagine how long I have waited for this to be released. If you have no clue about J-Men Forever, take all the movie serials from the 30's and 40's, jumble them together and add voice-overs creating a whole new story which makes Woddy Allen's What's Up, Tiger Lily? look like .... Great 70's rock music backup this great story of the Lightning Bug who resides on the moon, trying to take over the Earth with Rock-N-Roll and pot. There are so many quotable lines in this movie, it will change your life. Maybe....

"You can thank the Rock-N-Roll detector for leading you to your doom.."
