KL Studios:

 

"12/5 on DVD and BD! Code of Silence (1985) Chuck Norris in a film by Andrew Davis -- Loaded w/ Extras: director's commentary + much more!"

 

 

 

I saw the complete extras on FB: no participation from Chuck at all. So weird he'd be above reminiscing about biggest movie of his career.

Chuck should be more like Dudikoff, He was all over a lot of the recent blus put out for his films.

Q: I've probably brought this up before, but anyone know if there's a good release of BY THE SWORD (1991) starring Eric Roberts + F. Murray? It's 2.35 : 1 Widescreen, so I don't want to grab a VHS or watch it cropped on YT.

 

I'm super annoyed because it's the glaring hole in my E.R. collection!

post #149805 of 149822

Somehow I overlooked I'm missing this movie as well.

 

This one I might YT:

Nice on that Code of Silence release.

 

Hopefully, Shout or Arrow has a good stateside Delta Force special edition planned.

post #149807 of 149822

I was definitely not expecting to hear that movie being adapted into a TV show today.

There is something else I need to revisit.

I have no idea. A lot of random crap gets Blu releases out of the... blue, but who knows if that will ever receive the same treatment.

It's not a surprise to me. Carlos has never done any interviews for anything he's done before. He's said it himself that he's never really considered himself an actor, and he just fell into it. It's not a stretch that he wouldn't care too much to talk about any of his films. No matter how well done or beloved they are.

Looks pretty good. Much better anyway than the snoozefest that was the first film when I caught it at the theater.

 

 

Saw most of the movie Never Cry Wolf last night and finished it earlier. It's a pretty good film. It's very nearly a one man show for Charles Martin Smith, and aside from the opening, we only ever see 6 other people throughout the film. One of them being the man who flies him out to the Canadian wilderness, Brian Dennehy. Playing ROSIE. The rest of the film is Charles Martin Smith studying wolves in order to find out if they are as dangerous as people believe them to be. The film is rated PG, but several times, the film is surprising with nudity of the CHARLES MARTIN SMITH VARIETY. At one point (it's the big set piece in the film), he runs around naked for about a good 10 minutes of screen time THROUGH A HERD OF CARIBOU. With just his boots on. It's a brave role for him.

 

Seeing this movie in its entirety after only seeing some of it ages ago when I was a kid reminded me of another movie about what I thought was a wolf in Alaska that I saw also as a kid. That one I remembered mostly because my Dad pointed out that it had JOHN CANDY in it, and that he played a weasely "bad guy" named PINKY. That's all I knew about it as I'd forgotten the title. Looking up is IMDB filmography, it's a tv movie that stars RONNY COX called THE COURAGE OF KAVIK THE WOLFDOG. It's on Youtube, so I'll have to check it out in the near future.

Frank Grilo and Iko Uwais fighting Aliens? I am definitely watching this.

post #149811 of 149822

The Sarah Silverman one was quite good, but the Dana Carvey one is busting me all up.

 

post #149812 of 149822

Couple of upcoming horror blus that warrant attention.

 

SLAUGHTER HIGH is getting a stateside blu courtesy of Vestron Video. I know Fraid will be happy about that. It will be the uncut version, although no mention yet whether it will be standard definition inserts of the gore or if they finally found all the uncut trims they'd been looking for. I'm leaning towards this being a true HD presentation, because they've been pretty adamant about finally getting this one right.

 

Never before on dvd or blu-ray, Vinegar Syndrome announced earlier today that they will be releasing Demon Wind. It's a 1990 film that I first saw when I was in high school via a vhs that my friend had rented, and it was pretty freaky. I saw it again in college when I rented the vhs myself, and it was still freaky, while also being interesting. It's a solid little horror film with some good effects and lots of atmosphere.

 

Scream Factory announced some time ago that their collector's edition blu of Silent Night, Deadly Night will be fully uncut as they have discovered the uncut negative! So no more standard definition inserts of the extra gore footage.

I can safely say that is another film I had never heard of before. It is neat you'll be able to revisit something you hadn't watched in many, many years.

While "Demon Wind" is something that makes me snicker because I am immature, I am glad it is getting a proper release. I am also happy about the Silent Night, Deadly Night news.

 

Speaking of films I hadn't heard of before, a mutual on Letterboxd liked a review for a DTV that just came out this year; while a negative review (and the film has gotten plenty of bad reviews), as it was only a 99 cent rental on Amazon Instant, that is why I saw American Violence. Yes, it is pretty bad and despite some of the actors involved, stay away. The director's a dude who has done a few DTV action/thrillers, none of them rated highly. I'll mention 4Got10 as that was one of them and I remember it not being well-received around here. Him doing a story involving a scumbag killer who is that way because his uncle molested him as a kid... it was not the best idea and he probably was being over-ambitious. In flashbacks we see how he ended up in prison on death row, about to be executed; he's telling his life story to a psychologist, played by... DENISE RICHARDS. She was little better than she was as Dr. Christmas Jones.

 

I realize it may sound appealing when I mention that there are small roles played by Nick Chinlund, Patrick Kilpatrick, and Bruce Dern; as great as those men are, they can't raise this nonsense up to something watchable. The movie is basically watching a scumbag interact with various people that are even worse scumbags, and it's all just lame and cliche and dull. Then, the movie actually becomes preachy at the end, which made me laugh with disbelief. "Avoid" is my recommendation.

He doesn't care and probably barely leaves Texas.

When I met with William Tannen he told me that Chuck was totally different man on THE CUTTER than when they had made HERO 18 years prior...

Watched it on Netflix and purchased the Blu-Ray.  I've watched SAVAGE DOG three times now and will get the Blu-Ray as soon as it's released. 

post #149816 of 149822

Thanks Gunner. I am sure Scott appreciates your efforts.

 

Good action needs all the support it can get these days.

While I feel bad for Joe Caranahan that there's another big movie he won't be doing, I am not devastated either that a sequel wouldn't happen... even if I presume it would do well at the box office so Sony maybe should continue to try and make it.

A few minutes ago I realized I neglected to mention something interesting about the movie I saw last night. Besides the famous names I already mentioned, two athletes have small roles. The first was UFC Heavyweight Champion Stipe Miocic, as a bodyguard. The second is ROB GRONKOWSKI. Yes, the famous American Football player for the New England Patriots who is definitely talented but is best known for acting like a stereotypical college fratboy, even though he's been out of college for years now. He drives a getaway car and of course shit goes South so he has to shoot people and beat them up too. Considering Gronk is pretty well-known for his partying ways, you'd suspect he would be above shitty obscure DTV flicks.

Now's the time for a real reboot - with the original intended stars...

 

 

In fact, get Michael Bay back, keep the two other films' style, drop Carvey and Lovitz right in, call it OLD BOYS and I'm there opening day!  I'll probably be alone in there, but either way.

 

(I would've loved to see the Carnahan BB3 with Smith & Lawrence, though.  We need more crazy cop movies like BB2 these days.)

post #149821 of 149822

That's detailed in the Don Simpson biography High Concept. Carvey and Lovitz allegedly soured, or it might have been just Carvey, because Simpson took them along on one of his hookers-and-blow benders in Vegas.

 

I think that film would have been a goofier and less violent. I can't see Bay directing them together.

post #149822 of 149822

Personally I think Lovitz could have pulled off "You forgot your boarding pass."
