If that movie is as great as Rolling Thunder and Extreme Prejudice, then I am real damn excited to see it.

Oh, lol... for those that don't remember, a few years ago Criterion did an April Fool's Day joke where they announced that Kindergarten Cop would be part of The Criterion Collection and that Photoshopped image was part of the gag. The year before, on April 1 they announced that they would be putting out C.H.U.D., which was just announced today would be out on DVD and Blu in September from Arrow. Considering the sequel will also be on Blu soon, I am glad people can get both in that format.

I had no idea there were so many versions of the movie out there.
This is for all the fans of The Phantom.
Angelfire is still something that exists in August of 2016... incredible. I'll have to read that later tonight as such behind the scenes dirt is right in my wheelhouse.
Today, what I did was return to Disney Springs; it was there that I saw a movie I mentioned earlier in the week, the South Korean flick Operation Chromite, about what went on right before the Battle of Inchon in the Korean War. I couldn't turn down the chance to see a film from that country on the big screen, even if it only got such a release because Liam Neeson is in a supporting role as General Douglas MacArthur. Needless to say, the movie was better than Inchon and Neeson was better in the role than Laurence Olivier was, even though Liam basically just sounded like himself instead of trying to mimic the old general.
It's not great but I knew not to expect something 5 stars after hearing mixed reviews. While others may disagree, I did happen to enjoy it quite a bit. While I don't know how truthful it was to what actually happened, much of the focus is on a group of South Korean spies disguised as people from North Korea who gather intel to help the troops led by MacArthur attack Inchon in order to try and turn the tide of the war. There's a lot of spy stuff and planning for attack early on; it's later that there are various action scenes where shit blows up and many people are shot. No surprise considering where it's from, it gets quite bloody and there are some rather harsh moments. There are some cliche moments, but thankfully it's still not a typical Hollywood production, to state things in a vague fashion so I try and not to spoil much. Hopefully one day Orlando or at least Tampa will show more movies from South Korea as I'd love to see some of them on the big screen.
Oh, and at least for me it was quite unusual to see subtitled Asian trailers play before the film start. They were for such things as Sword Master, Line Walker, the Korean movie The Tunnel... and the English trailer for Skiptrace that was posted here earlier in the year.
