Wow. That show has "colorful metaphors", to use a quote from what I saw tonight. To lift my spirits I saw my last Star Trek movie for probably a few weeks: A Voyage Home. It has quite the daffy time travel plot, is as subtle as a Vulcan Nerve Pinch (especially when it comes to its environmental message) and not all of the humor works; yet it's still greatly entertaining and has many memorable moments. Thus, it's something I've always dug. How can I not laugh at "double dumbass to you!" or the scene w/ that punk, or their first scene in daylight San Francisco of the 80's, where one of the most 80's songs ever composed is the soundtrack?

Looks like Shea Whigham will be a bigger part of next week's episode. Excited for that.

 

 

Goggins was definitely missed, and the episode would have been a whole lot better had he been there the entire time. Still, I laughed plenty too.

Yeah, if there's one thing that is making me laugh so much in Vice Principals is the "colorful metaphors" and other sayings that have me in stitches.

 

Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home is a great film. Mostly for embracing the comedy elements that were always there, but never had a chance to really come out front and center. It's noticeable how after this one, there started to be more scenes of comedy in all of the subsequent films, all the way up to this month's latest Star Trek film.

Q: this was a discussion topic posed by Scott Weinberg on Twitter, and I thought it might be a good one for us, too:

 

"What are the best songs you've discovered by way of a movie trailer?"

 

I'm Team this response: "not sure if it was in the trailer but Leonard Cohen’s “Everybody Knows” is in Pump Up the Volume. Changed my life."

post #138855 of 153009
Unfortunately most trailers use well-worn songs. Every now and then something will click and I'll seek it out, but it's usually something low-key, like Suzanne Vega's Caramel in the trailer for Nichol's CLOSER.

"Battle Without Honor or Humanity" in the Kill Bill trailers and "Cells" by The Servant in the Sin City teaser immediately come to mind.

Definitely.  I was going to mention "Cells" - SIN CITY too!  And don't forget trailers that use music from other movies.  I'll throw in...

 

"First Cool Hive" by Moby - THE FIFTH ELEMENT

"Blue" by La Tour - BASIC INSTINCT

"The Ascension" by James Horner from COCOON - trailer for SUPER 8

"Wave of Mutilation" by The Pixies - SOUTHLAND TALES

Music from POWAQQATSI by Philip Glass - PHILADELPHIA

Music from THE MISSION by Ennio Morricone - THE UNTOUCHABLES

Music from DEMOLITION MAN by Elliot Goldenthal - MEN IN BLACK and MEN IN BLACK II

Music from THE NATURAL by Randy Newman - TUCKER: THE MAN AND HIS DREAM

Music from THE WITCHES OF EASTWICK by John Williams - HOOK

Music from BRAINSTORM by Jerry Goldsmith - DARKMAN

Music from THE GOONIES by Dave Grusin - INNERSPACE

There was a TV commercial for SPEED that used music from PREDATOR ("Get To The Chopper") really well.

And didn't the SPEED trailer use music from Zimmer's BLACK RAIN?

 

Here's a good resource.  They don't catch everything but it's a good place to start...    http://www.soundtrack.net/trailers/

Trial By Combat (aka A Dirty Knight's Work, aka A Choice of Weapons)
"My local video store, which recently shuttered its doors, had what they called the 'Black Vault'. It was filled with obscure films never released on DVD, or even VHS. That's is how I found this oddity. In the film, a group of wealthy Englishmen with a passion for medieval times decide to take the law into their own hands. As such, cockney criminals finding themselves in the middle of jousting contests. Tonally, this could go one of two ways. It could be a grim and gritty look at vigilantism or a silly action-comedy. For better or for worse, the latter is chosen as the filmmakers are obviously looking to entertain more than preach. From what I've read on-line, the film is hated by many but if you're looking something different and enjoy gazing at a young Barbara Hershey (or an aging Peter Cushing), then this might be the film for you."

Jackson County Jail (1976; Micheal Miller)
"SILENT RAGE director Michael Miller helmed this lean genre offering a few years prior to making what is arguably Chuck’s best screen outing. Featuring a young, pre-ROLLING THUNDER Tommy Lee Jones and Yvette Mimieux facing off against corrupt, sleazy American law enforcement. This is actually an impressively dark outing for Corman and co and is even more disheartening when viewed 40 years later, knowing that most of what Mimieuxis subjected to is likely still happening. Rough, urgent 70s cinema that doesn’t get nearly the attention that it deserves. "

HIGH VELOCITY (Remi Kramer, 1976)
"A most delightful entry in the imagined sub-category of action/adventure films that I refer to as "Mercenary Dads." In other words, over the hill men who are "too old for this shit," but tasked with carrying out some kind of dire mission. In particular, this film manifests as biracial buddy picture between Ben Gazzara and Paul Winfield playing two Vietnam vets who shout things like "You racist nazi!" at their enemies. As goofy as this movie is, it manages to achieve something truly remarkable: it never glorifies war or violence. Plus, the Jerry Goldsmith score is one of his best."

Not a huge fan of his. I give him credit for staking his claim and churning out one after the other back in the day. I've seen BLOODFIST but not part 2. BLOODFIST was basically Roger Corman seeing what Cannon did with BLOODSPORT and doing his own version. Not too memorable.

 

Wanna say the best Wilson flick I caught was RED SUN RISING. It wasn't all that great but better than the others from him I witnessed.

I haven't seen that film but he's had a great past 2 years or so; before that I'd only know him from Drive, but now he has blown up and become pretty popular, starring in great movies for general audiences and great movies for film fans.

The only thing I'll mention about what I did today was that I went to the local bank because someone I know gave me some cash via a check and I had to deposit it in my account. The past few times I've gone to my bank, a lady working there... I'd like to make a different type of deposit with her! I think she's pretty hot, in other words.

 

On a less crude note, I saw online that not only will Chopping Mall finally come out on Blu in September via Lionsgate, but that they are bringing back VESTRON VIDEO. Holy shit. Besides the fact that Lionsgate will now put off more old releases and give them a nice treatment w/ plenty of supplements, Vestron Video is a label I remember very well from growing up and renting some of the movies they put out on VHS, and I know quite a few of us will remember them fonding also.

Ah, Vestron Video.  How I miss the old days and seeing that logo coming up.  Thankfully, there are several terrific video compilations of VHS logos like those to be found on YouTube.  And there's even a guy out there who would (and maybe still will) create custom stencil painted Converse sneakers with whatever logo you like.  He made these outstanding Vestron ones seen below.  A quick Google search will get those interested his contact info and more about the type that he's offered, like Wizard Video and apparently even a Cannon Films pair of sneakers.  Awesome.

post #138870 of 153009

Had a fun day today spent with my Mother. Took her to get a new cellphone, and she got an iPhone SE that has a lot of storage in it, as she needed that. We ate a Logan's because I wanted a steak and Texas Roadhouse was closed. Went to JC Penny's and I got two pairs of short and two pairs of work pants. Picked up Renata, and we went to my Parents' house so I could set up the phone for my Mother. That took about two hours as the computer was running slow for some reason. It wasn't that big of a deal anyway, as we're having water issues and the city has been working on them. There's still issues and I can say that at least the water isn't completely turned off, but there's a low flow situation going on that is so low it's basically droplets coming out of the shower with no pressure there or in the sinks. Did a virus scan on their computer too, as they can't do that on their own. Came back and did what I've been doing the past several days. Going through dvd bins for dvds I'm going to get rid of. I'm either giving them to relatives, or seeing if any of Vanessa's co-workers want them. Just trimming the fat from my collection, like I'm doing with my body when I run.

Amazing... for an entirely different reasons than the last comment I said was amazing. I am a guy who earlier today made a crude "deposit" joke... of course I would laugh at this.

 

Tonight, what I watched was Total Recall; yes, the remake, and yes the longer Director's Cut. I didn't hate it... but I can only say it's about average and doesn't come close to being as great as the original. The CGI looks nice, and so did both Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel (Beckinsale in her underwear was a good thing!) The action-while not spectacular-was at least easy to deciper and wasn't badly cut or shaky-cammed to death. Some scenes were even nice. Yet, it is pretty dopey (an elevator that goes through the center of the Earth?), there wasn't enough Bryan Cranston, and the original film's story was just better; not to mention, the one-liners they used here just did not compare, and Christ, was Colin Farrell not awesome like Arnold was in the role. It reminds me that while this wasn't a complete waste of time, I am OK with mostly avoiding such movies.

 

Although, lulz for them having a chick with three boobies when it makes little sense in that film's universe; it's not like you see any other people mutated, like at all.

Yes. 2/10. Don't waste your time. Most of the time Seagal is sitting around the table and talks sensei-sentences. Acting is bad. Some scenes with Seagal are laughable. Example: he is angry and get up overthrow the table. Looks like balsawood-table, slo-mo and wires.

CONVOY: THE underrated Peckinpah. It's kind of my everything. Kristofferson is a god. This movie makes being a trucker seem so cool; this awesome outlaw lifestyle. Borgnine is one of the great bastards of Action cinema. Truckstop brawl is pure Bloody Sam.  The fact Peckinpah could turn this paycheck gig based on a novelty song into this amazing modern Western just proves his genius. Performance to savor: comedian Franklyn Ajaye as Spider Mike

IMDB Trivia: "Sam Peckinpah was taking heavy amounts of cocaine, Quaaludes and vitamin shots that left him both irritable and irrational. At one point, Peckinpah called his nephew David from the set, ranting that Steve McQueen and the Executive Car Leasing Company were conspiring to kill him."

post #138889 of 153009

Convoy is still a movie I haven't seen yet. At least it can easily be watched via Amazon, which is what I'll have to do in the future.

 

I am pretty sure it's better than what I just saw: I continued on the sci-fi kick, although tomorrow I'll watch something in another genre; hopefully that'll help me forget what a waste Elysium was. I know some here dug it, but I am still the rare person who will never like District 9 and this while not horrible, Elysium is still not good. It being totally cliche and unoriginal is one thing (there were a surprising number of parallels between that and the Total Recall remake I saw the night before)... the giant plot holes, the eye-rolling plot device of the medical bay that can cure any illness in seconds, and the horrible shaky-cam is something else entirely. Some of the performances, they were either bad or I don't even know what to make of them; yeah, I am talking about Jodie Foster (w/ inexplicable accent) and Sharlto Copley in particular, but they weren't the only ones.

 

So yeah, I am not surprised many hated this and felt massively disappointed, expecting something more like Blomkamp's first movie rather than some generic piece of crap.

post #138890 of 153009

I've been thinking about revisiting Elysium since I did like it when I blind bought the blu-ray. Especially since Damon has the best name never used for a Sylvester Stallone character. MAX DA COSTA.

 

Revisiting the first X-Files movie earlier. Fight The Future after finishing the 5th season. It's still a great piece of sci-fi entertainment. I hadn't seen it in years, and a lot of memories were brought back from the theatrical viewing. Particularly how everyone laughed when Mulder took a leak in front of that ID4 poster.

 

Got pretty pissed earlier too. I finished working on an assignment and without going into too many details, the format that I was asked to put it in didn't save what I'd done. That pissed me off BIG TIME. Luckily it wasn't a whole lot of work, and I eventually figured out how to save, but in a different format and completed the work all over again. I emailed the professor about it, and hopefully he'll be fine with it. If not, then there will be problem as he wanted it in a .doc format through Microsoft Word, and as I don't have Word, but Open Office, this particular assignment which involved reviewing others' assignments and leaving comments on them cannot be saved as a Word file. Only as an open source document. To me that's only a small issue as I was still able to complete the assignment, but professors can be fickle people. I hope that's not the case here.

Big Trouble in Little China’s Jack Burton and Escape from New York’s Snake Plissken are like twins separated at birth, but they’ve never met - until now.  This October, the two John Carpenter/Kurt Russell cult movie franchises are meeting in a crossover miniseries.

From thedigitalbits.com...  Speaking of Lionsgate, the company has announced the long-awaited Blu-Ray release of GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS on 10/11.

We believe this is the first time the title has been available on the format here in the States (it was previously available on BD in Italy, Germany, and elsewhere internationally).

 

Gorgeous film, outstanding performances, dialogue, direction, music.  I'd love to get all the DVD and LD commentaries on there.  Dare to dream.
