Default Easy Rider Producer Dies

I always thought the movie was more hype than good.

"Easy Rider" was about to heroin dealers who were so abysmally stupid that they tried to ride choppers across the deep south.

Should have gone by way of Omaha.

Yeah, and "Vanishing Point" was about a guy too stupid to realize that cops have radios, planes, and helicopters that will inevitably catch him.

Except it wasn't.

Sorry, but when the movie began with a couple of guys smuggling heroin I lost empathy with the protagonists. Certainly an important movie and a cultural icon. I just took different lessons from it than most people.

Speaking of heroin, Pulp Fiction was on Maxx last night. As much as I despise Tarantino, that movie is awesome.

Then again, it's really just a few days in the life of a couple of LA thugs...

The only thing good about it was Dennis Hoppers Panhead. Peter Fonda's about as useles as his POS bike.

It's too bad a stand-up guy and Navy veteran like Henry Fonda would wind up with two limp fish like Peter and Hanoi Jane for kids. I guess Briget makes up for it a little bit.....
