  • RIP Menahem Golan

    85 years old, not a bad run.

    RIP to a legend and a man who, I'm sure, had a huge role in shaping what a lot of movie buffs my age consider to be the pinnacle of the genre!,7...556648,00.html

    "The legendary Israeli film producer and director Menahem Golan has passed away at age 85.

    Golan is an Israel Prize laureate for his contribution to Israeli cinema and held a central role in Hollywood in the 80s.

    Together with his cousin Yoram Globus, Golan headed Cannon Group, a successful production company that produced films such as Delta Force and was instrumental in launching the careers of Charles Bronson and Chuck Noris.
    He is survived by a wife and three children."

        Menahem didn't just shape my tastes, he shaped my childhood! Masters of the Universe was one of my FAVORITE films when I was a kid. I still love it to this day. Rest in peace Mr. Golan.
        It's all in the reflexes.

              Legend, Hero....the guy is a HUGE part of my growing up....probably a huge part of my addiction to crap action movies too.....

              Imagine back to the days of video rentals if there had never been a Menahem Golan .....there probably would not have BEEN any video rental revenue without him and Cannon!!!

              When you saw "GOLAN-GLOBUS " appear in t he starting credits you were GUARANTEED enjoyment.....It was like a stamp of approval!!
