I would actually instead love to see a return to the old, old-school retro McDonald's designs.  I'm not old enough to have seen them myself but you can't go wrong with a classic.

 

 

Plus I probably will see the new Michael Keaton Roy Kroc film. Keaton's always fun but the design imagery looks great too...

Shoot (Directed by Harvey Hart)
"Bored furniture salesman Cliff Robertson takes a break from his shattered marriage and crumbling affair for a weekend hunting trip with his buddies. Things take a bizarre turn when another hunting party randomly opens fire on them and one of the assailants is killed in the resultant volley. Cliff’s bunch retreats to the city to plot their next move, with Ernest Borgnine as the pacifist voice of reason and Henry Silva as the macho aggressor.

It’s my understanding that this movie has a small right-wing cult following, which makes sense for a film about a bunch of gun-toting white dudes standing their ground against shadowy bad guys. For my money, though, this is actually a pitch-black satire on fragile masculinity. Watching the childish glee of Robertson’s posse as they channel their midlife crises into planning a real-life bloodbath is some grim comedy indeed. Even amidst all that testosterone, Kate Reid comes mighty close to stealing the show as a bitter widow whose eulogy for her husband slowly becomes a racist defense of the Second Amendment before disintegrating into a drunken pass at Cliff Robertson. Hey, it’s a white male empowerment fantasy already. Why not make Cliff Robertson a sexually irresistible dynamo while we’re at it? "

 

On the movie tip, have you seen this one, Molt? It's pretty great.

 

It's also on YT.

Good to hear, Elvis.  Keeping a positive energy level up is absolutely key.  You've got to be strong for her, keep her smiling and solid.  My mom has in the last ten or fifteen years to present been suffering from diabetes, skin cancer issues, a broken hip (which she got while helping out at a local food pantry) and a broken wrist, loss of vision in one eye, COPD and a triple bypass.  But her spirits remain high.  Every day is a new day and being there for her, checking in every day twice a day or more, bringing her little things that make her happy...  It all helps.  Every little thing.  Be strong, and let her strength be there for you.

Loose Cannons... not a good movie. However, some wacky individual (who at times seemed like the type that would post in this thread) made a video of stills set to the rather odd end credits song that for some reason is by Katey Segal. I know I brought it up before but this seemed like a good time to mention it again.

Right?  Plus, the McDonald's near me typically gets customers who are (1) drunk, (2) unemployed, (3) high, (4) clothes-optional or (5) a combo.  I'd call that pretty casual.

Yeah, as a kid my mom had cancer; what a scary thing at that age. There was the surgery, chemotherapy... thankfully after all that she's been fine ever since. I'll wish all the best to your mom.

Ha. Yeah, I am used to seeing the dregs of society at McDonald's. Now that I think of it, those people trying to order from kiosks... I am not sure if "frustration" or "hilarity" is the most apt term to use; maybe both.

I didn't enjoy much of BOURNE but I'm a fan of BvS, warts and all. I loved the fact that it wasn't just copying the Marvel formula - which is getting to be pretty stale in my opinion - and it really tried to do it's own thing.  Yeah it had flaws but, to me, it made the movie that much more interesting.  I had a blast with the theatrical cut and I just picked up the extended edition on Blu-Ray.   Going to check that out tomorrow evening and I'm really looking forward to it.  

 

 

 

I've been an unabashed fan of Batman Vs. Superman since seeing it at the theater. The Ultimate Edition really is a better film just for fleshing out a whole lot of stuff left out of the theatrical cut. It's definitely a more complete film.

Everyone knows my love for this particular film, and I will never go back on that. It's a glorious and violent bit of crazy fun.

I have a big in-joke running about it with a friend of mine seeing it at a young age.

 

 

Hah. I found the vhs at a Half Price Books in Austin a few weeks ago and scoffed at them wanting 8 bucks for the tape. I keep forgetting that Paramount put up a bunch of movies on Youtube to watch for free. Good thing I passed on that tape and now I can see "THE 90'S ARE GOING TO MAKE THE 60'S LOOK LIKE THE 50'S!" in its entirety since I've only ever seen it on tv back in the..90's.

Scored an 8 out of 10. I actually knew most of those by sight because I've either seen them on shelves in the past, or actually have seen them. Seeing that still reminds me of the days in the past where I'd peruse the shelves at the video stores reading the backs of vhs tapes. Ah, memories.

I remember you had this on your Netflix dvd list when you posted it a few days ago. I've got the dvd and I'm due for a revisit. It's not a great movie, but it's decent.

That's really great to hear that your Mom is going to be ok. My Mother is very healthy, but she was scared because two years ago she needed to have some surgery and my Mother in law comforted her when she said she'd had the same surgery and that she would be fine.

Wow. Your Mom is a real trooper and survivor. She has had all those ailments and is still powering on. She must have iron running through her veins. That's also really nice that you visit her often.

McDonald's. I just ate food from there! That's what happens when you have a 3 year old who always wants to eat at one of 3 places. Old McDonald's, Chick-Fil-A, or Burger King. The latter two mostly because of the play areas.

 

Took Renata to see Captain America: Civil War. It was pretty fun, even though it didn't reach the paranoid heights of the second film, there was still a whole lot of epic action, especially during the huge airport fight. The new kid as Spider-Man is already proving he's a solid choice from all the small funny bits he had. Particularly when he referred to The Empire Strikes Back as an "Old movie."

post #139021 of 148225

Here's a topic that might spark some debate...


In recent years we've had new takes on Ghostbusters, The Thing, Poltergeist, RoboCop and Mad Max and we've had threatened remakebootquels of Escape from New York, The Rocketeer and Big Trouble in Little China, among others.


What 1980s movie would you actually not mind - or maybe even enjoy - seeing rebooted or sequelized? It might help if the film isn't exactly considered a classic and could use some improvement. And how would you cast and crew it?

 

I'll start with a few...

D.C. CAB - Cabbies trying to stay open in the time of Uber.
THE KEEP - The entire storyline done as a miniseries.
CLOAK & DAGGER - Videogames, espionage.
COBRA - I need more Marion Cobretti in my life.
ACTION JACKSON - Starring Michael Jai White.
AMERICAN DRIVE-IN - 'Cause I need more movies about drive-ins.
MODERN PROBLEMS - 'Cause what the hell.

OUTLAND. This time by John Hyams.
DEATH HUNT. With Stallone as Bronson and Liam Neeson as Lee Marvin. Joe Carnahan directs.
DUNE. Done on Netflix or Amazon as a series.
COMMANDO. Starring Dwayne Johnson.
ARMOUR OF GOD. Gareth Evans and Iko Uwais.

and in a fit of surefire blasphemy:

DIE HARD. Recast McClane with Antony Starr on Cinemax with the Banshee guys.

You're welcome!

 

 

As far as not minding remakes:

 

Cyborg directed by William Kaufman and starring Johnny Strong

 

Raw Deal starring Statham and directed by Neveldine/Taylor

 

Gorp brought to us by Happy Madison with all the usual Sandler alumni in various roles at the camp. Probably as a Netflix film. (I'm not even joking here.)

 

The Stuff starring Joel McHale and directed by James Mangold

 

And to go off of Dude Hallenbeck's blasphemy, Once Upon A Time In America. Starring Ben Foster as Noodles, Channing Tatum as Max, Jesse Eisenberg as Patsy, Jonathan Tucker as Cockeye, and Eva Green as Deborah. Directed by Ben Affleck who also co-stars as older Max/Senator Bailey with Matt Damon as older Noodles.

I "kinda" had fun with SUICIDE SQUAD. It not a great or particular good film though.

 

The casting is its greatest strength. Especially Will Smith and Margot Robbie. They really make you care about their characters. The film is really badly edited though and you can tell that a lot of stuff was cut out. Jared Leto didn't work as The Joker for me as well.

 

I give this a B or B+. The best of the DC Universe films so far (Though the bar is real low on that one).

Fat Elvis, that's good news about finding it early. My thoughts are with you and family. I went through the same thing with my mother several years ago and I know it can take a toll on you. Stay strong!

Yesterday evening after work I had a fine meal of a Whopper and fries at Burger King and a chocolate frosty at a Wendy's. Healthy, no? I then went to Big Lots and found a couple movies. I picked up the SUPERMAN II: THE RICHARD DONNER CUT DVD for $3 and the blu of SOUTHLAND TALES for $5. I've never seen the former and don't remember much of the latter (except that Mandy Moore is HOT!).

Right now I'm watching DIRTY MARY CRAZY LARRY on NetFlix as it's been years since I've seen it.
post #139040 of 148225

Thanks, man.

 

And hey, engineer, I didn't say amidst the rapid fire yesterday, but I shared the best wishes of everyone with my mom, and briefly mention your mom's struggle, just to let her know others are in similar fights. Just want you know there's prayers and positive energy being sent back to yours from this end.

Needless to say, I've still been seeing reviews and ratings all over the place when it comes to this movie. It's incredible how polarizing all DC films are. I just know that a lot of people saw it already, while I don't know if I'll ever watch it; I am still "meh" on pretty much all superhero pictures, as I am the outlier there.

Wow. I certainly believe that he believes cell phones will be the downfall of humanity. Somehow, I also believe that he watches cat videos while eating Chinese food.

Yeah, Year Of The Dragon is one of my favorite action films of all time. I put it in an action draft we did in the Drafts section in 2008. Just found my list.

 

1. Punisher '89

2. Year Of The Dragon

3. Predator 2

4. Under Siege

5. Le Pacte Des Loups/Brotherhood Of The Wolf

Del Toro recommends a double feature of The Killer and Year of the Dragon.

 

I might do that this week.

 

felix: what do you think of Cimino's films? Do you agree with the charges of racism? Do they make you uncomfortable in any way?

I've only watched a few of Cimino's films (Year of the Dragon, The Deer Hunter). And that was many years ago.
