I watched JASON BOURNE and I just have one thing to say:

 

Tommy Lee Jones in MECHANIC: RESURRECTION > Tommy Lee Jones in JASON BOURNE

Doesn't look too bad. I'll give it a look. I really liked Hardcore Henry a lot (and so did my daughter!), so we'll probably go see this one.

 

 

Revisiting Alex Cox's Straight To Hell on dvd. Only seen it once when I bought it based on recommendations either here or on facebook back in 2013. It's my favorite Alex Cox film next to Walker. It's definitely one of those films that needs to be seen to be believed. Effectively a parody of Spaghetti Westerns, and even though it wasn't made by an Italian, it still ranks pretty highly (at least to me) as the best modern Spaghetti Western next to Sukiyaki Western Django. Another great western influenced by Spaghetti Westerns.

 

It's also really cool seeing all of these musicians playing cowboys, Xander Berkeley as a priest(!), Miguel Sandoval as a general store owner, and Sy Richardson as the lead.

post #147203 of 152253
STRAIGHT TO HELL is an all timer. I saw it when it first hit VHS in the old days and let friends borrow the tape until I had to replace it. Bought the Anchor Bay DVD as soon as it came out. Both versions of the soundtrack. And I think I even have the screenplay here somewhere. Also love REPO MAN, SID & NANCY and THREE BUSINESSMEN.

Currently sitting in a theater waiting for DAVID LYNCH - THE ART LIFE to start.

post #147204 of 152253

Straight to Hell is crap.  Sorry guys after the one two punch of Repo Man and Sid and Nancy I expected much more from Alex Cox.  His first two were fucking brilliant!

 

I agree with Ebert (on his review of S&N) in that sadly we never saw his talent again.

 

Quote:
The movie was directed by Alex Cox, who made "Repo Man" a couple of years ago, and here he announces himself as a great director. He and his actors pull off the neat trick of creating a movie full of noise and fury, and telling a meticulous story right in the middle of it.​

 

What a complete waste of a career...

post #147205 of 152253

I can't believe I blanked on Sid And Nancy. That's the top one with Walker and then Straight To Hell for me.

 

Everybody loves Repo Man...except me. I've given it several tries, and I've got the Universal dvd, but it just hasn't wowed me like it has most everyone else. I'll give it another chance in the near future, but the few other times I've seen it, it just didn't press all the right buttons for me.

post #147206 of 152253
Sure Cox has made a few mistakes. REPO CHICK wasn't very good and he could've handled better his legendarily terrible meeting with Hunter S. Thompson, losing himself the gig of directing FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS.

However however his recent film BILL THE GALACTIC HERO could have been worse, SEARCHERS 2.0 was fun, he has been able to make a living well outside studio interference, and is now teaching.

I'd work with him in a heartbeat. We should all fail so terribly.

​I didn't know that he was teaching, that's great.  I disagree about the studio interference....From everything I've read he basically self sabotaged himself.  

 

Oh well, how many filmmakers can say they've made two bonafide classics???

I don't know if it'll be any good but I do like that Dan Stevens is the lead. Hardcore Henry I need to watch again, this time at home where I shouldn't get queasy like I did at some of the shaky-cam; not seeing it on a giant screen should help.

Seeing it a year ago I enjoy it for being like The Shield: The Movie. That's a plus now.

 

As to the comparisons to TRIPLE NINE, STREET KINGS blows it away. But who knows? Maybe I'll catch TRIPLE NINE in about 6 or 7 years and change my tune on that one. Real disappointment for now though.

 

Glad you enjoyed that episode, Molt. It was a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to discussing Wick on there soon. I also did the Face/Off episode of their Cage podcast.

 

Triple 9 is fun sleaze, basically the closest thing we'll ever get to a GTA movie with Woody Harrelson as Trevor Phillips.

 

I remember the Danzig rumors. They should have made a two-hour movie of him as Wolverine and Henry Rollins (another guy who could've done Drax 20 years ago) fighting each other.

 

Alex Cox's streak from Repo Man to Walker is all-win for me. I'm lucky to have discovered and embraced the shit out of Straight to Hell a decade ago.

I just noticed browsing Netflix the other day the show "Dinner for Five" is on Instant. Big fan of that one back in the day.

 

Discussion topic:  what would be your dream Action oriented dinner party guests? Pick 5 - it could be any actor/actress, filmmaker, producer, composer, whatever combo u want - they just have to be alive right now so Hal Needham isn't invited

 

My Dinner For 5:

post #147211 of 152253

Weird.  I went searching for DINNER FOR FIVE on netflix after reading your post, and the only episode listed is Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show, which I guess was a 50th episode special.

 

Too bad.  I'd always heard of the show but had never seen it.  I was hoping to watch it from the beginning.

 

edit: turns out a whole bunch of them are available on Youtube officially?

post #147212 of 152253

BLACKOUT (1978) - finally got around to this one last nite. Since i'm big on Disaster movies and gritty urban exploitation, this was totally my thing.  I've become something of a Jim Mitchum fan - we don't get genre leading men today with same mix of everyman quality and stoic intensity. He's like the drive-in version of his dad. Robert Carradine was really good also - and I must make embarrassing confession that at first I thought he was playing a double role, the giggling psychopath of the group with this unhinged energy had such a resemblance I thought Carradine was stealth playing both parts.  This is the kind of movie held together by individual sequences, and strength of mood, but that's sometimes enough.. And climax has helluva payoff.

Totally.  In fact BILL THE GALACTIC HERO was shot, crewed and cast with his students!  Also, when I mention his non-studio run I mean his output from the 90s to present, none for a major studio.

 

In fact, fans of STRAIGHT TO HELL might want to check out SEARCHERS 2.0...   There are tons of allusions and references to STH in there, as it's basically about two actors who once starred in a western who are on a cross-country trek to locate that film's director.  The actors are played by Ed Pansullo and Del Zamora and the director is Sy Richardson.  It's not great or a modern classic or anything.  More of a languid low-budget shot-on-digital B-Alex Cox curiosity rental, and probably for STH fans only.

I am ashamed to say I had never heard of Dinner for Five until just now. It being on IFC when I was in college for most of its run is probably the reason why. The idea of the show sounds great, though.

 

I need time to think of a serious answer for your query so I'll go with a joke answer of inviting four action legends and also Steven Seagal, as I presume the other four and him would constantly be arguing with each other and it'd make for amazing entertainment.

So, DAVID LYNCH: THE ART LIFE was okay.  I'm glad I went to see it, as it's always worth the trip to see anything Lynch-related.  Honing in on his early days, it covers Lynch's birth, childhood, school and college days (he hated Boston's School of the Museum of Fine Arts) and his wife and family, right up to the making of ERASERHEAD: the years in which he was primarily a fine-artist and illustrator/animator.   Lots of fine moments and good technique in the doc, but I must admit that I nearly fell asleep a couple of times and someone to my right actually did fall asleep several times.  It's very slowly paced and at eighty minutes feels more like two hours.  All that said, Lynch tells a story well and he tells quite a few here.  I believe the film started out several years ago as a Kickstarter Project called LYNCH THREE, which would follow both the more solid LYNCH (ONE) from 2007 (stand-alone doc) and LYNCH 2 also from 2007 (on the INLAND EMPIRE DVD). 

 

 

 

Also possibly of interest might be PRETTY AS A PICTURE: THE ART OF DAVID LYNCH (2007), I DON'T KNOW JACK (2002) and IT'S A BEAUTIFUL WORLD (2014)...

Yeah, I know Gruber and all, but for my money Cash Bailey is THE great 80's villain of Action cinema.

 

To paraphrase Beaks, Powers Boothe worked magic with Walter Hill's (and Milius') dialogue.

Bill Paxton, Michael Parks, and Powers Boothe all did this. No matter the type of movie they were doing, no matter how small the role, they NEVER went through the motions.

 

 

I'm going to save my Powers Boothe tribute watch for another day, as right now I'm about halfway through a movie from the stack of dvds I've purchased from the Redbox in the past few months. The Funhouse Massacre. This is an alright little film so far. BOB ROONEY from Married With Children shows up as a cannibal, Jere Burns is the leader, a Jim Jones (a role that really brought Powers Boothe a lot of recognition) type madman, and Clint Howard as THE TAXIDERMIST round out the list of notable actors who have substantial roles in the film. To lend more horror cred, Robert Englund shows up at the beginning in a cameo as the warden of the high security prison that these guys are at.

 

Oh yeah, and the guy who played Kenny Powers' half brother shows up in the film as well and since it takes place during Halloween, his costume is that of MACHETE! The film deals with this group of madmen (also including a man mountain and a sadistic dentist) who by way of Jere Burns' character's daughter who is also serial killer, end up having a funhouse customized to their own history. So they start murdering people in sections modeled after them, and naturally people think it's all part of the show, when it is all happening for real.

post #147238 of 152253
Damn Shame about Boothe. Only 68. Haven't seen RAPID FIRE or SOUTHERN COMFORT in years. Time to remedy that.

Molt, are those Blu-rays region free?
post #147239 of 152253

Quick check indicates that Kino blus are Region A locked so if I had to guess I'd say these will follow suit. But maybe if they are getting US releases they'll get a UK release from a company over there (101 Films?).

 

LAST OF THE FINEST is so generic but God help me I think I'll get it. Cast is too awesome.

 

Might be in for HUNTING PARTY if I see it for cheap. Real nasty western. Hackman is a total son of a bitch in that one.

The IMDb trivia isn't always accurate; if it's true, though, I'd love to hear why his favorite role was in a David A. Prior joint.

 

This wasn't the original plan but I looked through the cable guide to see if anything interesting was on. I noticed that the Director's Cut of Blackhat was TV-MA. That was enough for me to see it, even if I did not like the commercial interrruptions. I only saw the movie once before, on the big screen. I can't say what the little changes were; I just noticed the big one of where a setpiece was place in the DC. Back two years ago I enjoyed the movie, and I still enjoy it now. I understand why people would think it's not good, and also why some would think it's great. I say it's pretty good and I am glad that was what I saw tonight.

I'll watch it at some point, but this is about as "video game" movie as they can probably get.

post #147244 of 152253
Hardcore Henry felt like six hours. Gaming usually makes six hours feel like 90 minutes, that one did the reverse. It's got a few notable moments and a great soundtrack, but not much else.

The best video game movie is still Crank, or, if you give it thought, Falling Down (where you switch between D-FENS and Pendergast).
post #147245 of 152253
A Falling Down videogame is something I would totally play.

-Two styles of play: detective point n click as Pendergrast, third person, open world sandbox as D-FENS.

You must make it to your home in Venice to see your daughter. However, the shortest route will not be the easiest. The longer it takes to find a "clearer path", the better oppurtunity for confrontation and time to leave clues for the detective on your tail.

Riots, gang members, traffic, extreme heat, and anxiety work to keep you away.

As Pendergrast you dodge stress from your nagging wife, increasing fatigue, false leads and competitive co-detectives.

WHO WILL GET TO THE PIER FIRST!?!

post #147248 of 152253

COME THE WET-ASS HOUR... I'M EVERYBODY'S DADDY!!!!!!

 

Great thriller with a top-notch cast. John Goodman is especially fun as Pacino's partner.

 

The climax Moltisanti is referring to is a hoot. It's basically a final boss fight in a Konami game, and Pacino gets enough hits in on the killer that he should be rapidly blinking red.

They didn't have Tinder, let alone the Internet, but it's cheaper than video dating and more ethical than prowling New York for a hooker.
