For the latest Everything Action Commentary, Zach and Chris are joined by special guest Austin Trunick, the author of The Cannon Film Guide Vol. 1, to watch a quintessential movie from the Cannon Films catalog, Breakin 2: Electric Boogaloo.
As part of the absolute onslaught of promotions for 1990’s Dick Tracy, there was not one, not two, but three different music albums inspired by or related to the film, including a normal soundtrack album, the score by Danny Elfman and Madonna’s I’m Breathless album, featuring “Vogue”.
Living on the streets of Seattle, Jack Mason is recruited for what he thinks is a job as a hunting guide for some wealthy big-game hunters but he’s horrified to discover that he’s their target and he’s forced to fight to survive the hunt.
Formed by Ice-T and guitarist Ernie C in 1990, the heavy metal band Body Count contributed the song “Body Count’s in the House” to the soundtrack of 1992’s Universal Soldier, playing over the end credits of the movie.
Since the focus of both Breakin and Breakin 2: Electric Boogaloo was on break dancing, the soundtracks were key parts of the movies and featured hip&hop duo Ollie & Jerry contributing both title songs along with tracks by Chaka Khan and the first ever appearance by Ice-T.
