Happy 35th to PORKY'S.

post #145703 of 149675

I actually liked that. Gabriel Byrne is especially well cast here.

post #145704 of 149675

Bridget Fronda was soooooooooo hot in 1993.

post #145705 of 149675

I wonder if Seagal is still saying he was a CIA operative?

 

 

I went to the theater to see the Cinemark Classics showing of Reservoir Dogs. I had myself another walk to the theater as yesterday I noticed my car was long over due for an oil change. Sadly I missed the opening coffee shop scene since I did arrive at 2 pm for the showing, but I got held up getting my popcorn and drink, and I walked in during the scene in the car right after the credits. It didn't bother me all that much, as I got to enjoy the movie on the big screen for the first time. It was a small audience, but everyone was quiet. Walked back to the Walmart, and I got there in time as they were nearly done working on my car. I walked around the store for a bit, and then went to stand in line at the auto section to pay for my oil change. Got it all done, and then came back home to relax for the rest of the evening.

Considering he's practically a Russian citizen now, no.

POINT OF NO RETURN got dumped on hard when it came out mainly because it was an American remake that arrived so quickly after the original. I've always enjoyed it. Fonda is effective and Byrne also does good work. Keitel at that point was perfect for The Cleaner. Also fond of Zimmer's music in the film.

post #145709 of 149675

Oh, and I watched Johnnie To's THREE today. Big letdown. Whole film takes place in a hospital where a criminal is receiving care while a detective (Louis Koo) is trying to find out where his criminal buddies are hiding out. First two-thirds try to build tension within the hospital while the last act is a huge shootout. Unlike DRUG WAR, which also led up to a main action set piece, the one in THREE is horrid. It's full of 2001-era bullet-time effects, bad greenscreening, and an atrocious song playing over the mayhem. A shame.

As I have seen Boogaloo before, I should see the companion piece so the story about Cannon can be better known by me.

Yeah, that has been pretty popular on Letterboxd. I haven't participated in it, as it'd take a LOT of time for me to try and figure out only one movie for each year.

post #145715 of 149675

Fixing to go o bed in a bit, but since last night, I've been watching Iron Fist. I'm finishing up episode 3, and I have to say that I'm really enjoying it. There's enough action to satisfy, even if some of the fights are short. There's not just one fight per episode, there's several. Episode 3 was admittedly a little slow, but even then, it was still interesting.

post #145722 of 149675

Watching a film on LaserDisc last night I have a bizarre affinity for, Robert Longo's JOHNNY MNEMONIC (1995).  Texted some friends from film school who continue to goof on me for liking it to this day. 

 

College Friends:  "All I remember is it being not very good." And, "All I remember is it being completely unmemorable."

Me:  "Keanu Reeves screaming about room service, a psychic cyber-dolphin and Dolph Lundgren as a CyborgJesusHitman.  Yeah, I can see how all that could just fade from memory."

 

post #145723 of 149675
Cinescape magazine circa January '97: "Keanu Reeves turns down sequel to his biggest hit, SPEED, to star in a second cyber thriller called THE MATRIX. Has he lost his mind? Did he learn nothing from Johnny Mnemonic?"

Yeah that decision turned out horribly for him..
post #145724 of 149675

Haha. The thing is that actually Will Smith turned down the role of Neo to star in Wild Wild West. Mind-blowing:)

post #145725 of 149675

Watched Altitude.

 

I'm not sure what Denise did to her face, not looking like her former self.

 

I'm also not sure I can buy her as an action hero, but she gave it a good try.

 

A pretty by the book film. Bad guys and betrayals. The usual thing.

 

Dolph is taking a page out of Seagal's book and is only a peripheral character, not the main guy.

Rupert Pupkin Speaks: Underrated '87

 

http://www.rupertpupkinspeaks.com/2017/03/underrated-87-three-oranges.html

 

From the Hip (1987)
Directed by Bob Clark

"From Bob Clark (A Christmas Story, Black Christmas), From the Hip combines legal melodrama with anarchic wit, without being sophomoric or vulgar. That, despite including one of the better dildo jokes of the last century. I learned a thing or two from Judd Nelson’s young lawyer character, Stormy Weathers, and my teachers probably didn’t appreciate it.

The ethical issues it explores are heavy and its characters feel real, even though the legal machinations are cartoonish. The cast includes Bob Clark-regulars like Darren McGavin, character greats like Ray Walston, a young and stunning Elizabeth Perkins, a fresh-faced David Allen Grier and the legendary John Hurt, hammering the screen with one of his best, most underrated performances."

 

Real Men (1987)
Directed by Dennis Feldman

"Another underdog story, Real Men is a spy parody – a goofy, Cold War-era spoof with John Ritter and Jim Belushi, and all of the sophisticated humor you’d expect from them.

But it’s fun, because these guys are both charismatic comedians. Ritter plays a milquetoast suburbanite inexplicably recruited, against his will and against all logic, into manly man Belushi’s mission to establish first contact with aliens. The question is, what do we want from them: The Big Gun or The Good Package?

Sexy Russian agents, seductive librarians, deadly fingers and mid-’80s moralizing abound in this, the only film directed by Dennis Feldman, screenwriter of The Golden Child and Just One of the Guys."

 

Street Trash (1987)
Directed by Jim Muro

"Speaking of a complete lack subtlety, how about a movie about dissolving homeless people with poison malt liquor? It seems as if there’s a political point here, but really it’s about people melting into lumpy puddles of colorful goo.

You’d be hard-pressed to find a character in the film who wasn’t already just as gross before their transformation. These are ugly people doing all manner of ugly things, and their ugly, gloppy deaths offer the kind of guilty schadenfreude that only exploitation movies can deliver.

The director, Jim Muro, has gone on to work on Oscar-winning films as cinematographer, but this is the only film he ever directed. I can’t imagine why."

Real Men, what an odd yet enjoyable movie that I need to watch again.

 

Here's some unexpected news. I figure there are Top Gear fans reading this. Personally, I've never watched the show as they stage everything and aren't honest with the cars they cover; to me that's stupid horseshit and the opposite of entertaining so it's something I avoid. Well, there was a Top Gear USA but it was cancelled by The History Channel. Now, it's coming back, will be on BBC America, and one of the hosts will be... Bill Fichtner? It's true.

You could definitely skip ROGUE NATION. I've seen it yet I feel like I skipped it.

 

I'd say you could pass on the 3rd but part of the 4th has a callback to the 3rd so I guess you should watch the 3rd so you're not all "Who's that?" during the 4th.

 

MI2 isn't very good but it's likely my second favorite after GHOST PROTOCAL. Watered down Woo is still Woo, I suppose.

post #145737 of 149675
Boy....those Mission: Impossible films are real can of worms on CHUD. Everybody will tell you something different but, if you'd asked me...I'd say go with 1,3,4 and 5. M:I 2 is the only one I dislike. I think it's Woo's worst film...but that's just me. The other four? I found all of them great looking, breezy, exciting movies. No more, no less..

http://www.tracking-board.com/exclusive-burt-reynolds-set-to-star-in-adam-rifkins-dark-comedy-dog-years/

 

"Screen legend Burt Reynolds is set to star in Adam Rifkin’s dark comedy, DOG YEARS. Rifkin will direct from his own script.

 

The story revolves around an aging, former movie star who is forced to face the reality that his glory days are far behind him when he’s invited to receive a lifetime achievement award from a tiny East coast film festival. Embarrassed by the low rent event, he bails on the award and forces the emotionally unstable girl assigned to be his driver to take him on a soul searching tour of the landmarks of his youth."

FIRSTBORN (1984) Trivia:

 

"Corey Haim's first day of shooting was with 'Peter Weller', and he went up to compliment the older actor on his performance. Weller collared Haim, throwing him up against a wall to warn him not to speak to him after a take, and it took three assistants to separate them. Haim later admitted that he was terrified by the experience. "

"Firstborn" opened the same day as "The Terminator." Probably why I've never heard of "Firstborn."

I'm a fan. Awesome blend of 80's teen melodrama and exploitation. Fun creep-o turn from Weller.

I am very down for this. As an Americans junkie (evident from my Matthew Rhys as Two-Face pick in the Batman draft), I love me some good Reagan-era intrigue.

LOVE Firstborn. Peter Weller is grade-A scum. I wish the Blu-ray went for less.
