Original title: MAHIWAGANG KRIS

video-cd/Hong Kong/format???/English dub/Chinese subs

Obviously, this isn't a trashy Vietnam War flick but it is from the Philippines and it looks crazy so, well, that justifies an entry here, LOL. I stumbled over this VCD on one of Miltos' auctions on eBay. The "buy now" price was a whooping 77 dollars (!!!!!) but fortunately there was a "make an offer" button. xD!!!

Thanks to Robert and Andrew for helping out with the credits info.

Bikini girls with machine guns

Yep, this video is from the one they're watching in Tarantino's JACKIE BROWN. It's an awesome video; I mean all it is is a bunch of scantly clad sexy babes with automatic guns going: "This is an AK47" pow pow pow pow - Haha. Absolutely fantastic! xD.
