I'm not sure what to make of this, but I want it now:

 

post #151603 of 151633

Adrian Brody and Antonio Banderas in BULLET HEAD.

DVR set for the Chris Lambert THE HUNTED. Don't think I've seen it.

 

It's Cinemax that also has a preview this weekend. Includes the world cable premiere of CHIPS!

Had dinner at Denny's with my parents and Renata, and I took advantage of the rent 1 get 1 free dvd code that Redbox text messaged me. I rented Shot Caller and Amityville: Awakening. I wanted to watch Shot Caller first since that trailer posted in here some time ago made it look pretty good, and the cast got me interested as well.

 

It's pretty good so far. I half expected it to show us Waldau's transformation from stockbroker to hardened criminal, but I'm really liking how they decided to show us the present and have his "transformation" interspersed throughout the film. If you haven't seen it, I say give it a look. It's worth a rental at least.

If that were to play locally to me, I would see it too.  I got sort of bizarrely fascinated with Russian Car Cam videos a while back when they first starting going viral and have probably seen close to twenty four hours' worth of footage like that, all told over time.  Naturally, some of the clips in that trailer I had actually seen before.  But yeah, to be able to see this stuff in a theater with an audience would be an interesting communal experience I wouldn't be able to pass up.

Jon Berthenal also has a movie out this weekend, SWEET VIRGINIA. Looks like something we would enjoy:

I still haven't seen Bullet (I know, I know) but I have heard of Bulleit before. Hopefully it treats you well this holiday season.

You can find just about anything on YouTube. As I will assume that scene won't ever get remastered, that's as best as we can hope for.

Cold, man.

 

Yes, especially if the issue revolving around Tyrese in his feud with The Rock is that he has bad mental health because he's in that custody battle. I hope that's not the case but no matter the situation, I hope things do improve for him.

What a title, BULLET HEAD. I hope the film is more than just a loony premise; I've already seen someone describe it as "Cujo meets Reservoir Dogs."

Oof. I have heard little good about that; a detailed audio review I heard when the movie first came out was enough to scare me away. It just sounds gross; I understand there are long discussions about RIMJOBS.

I forgot about that movie; thankfully for me it's actually on Prime so it's probably something I should watch; as if I didn't have enough to see... but that is OK.

That's more than me for sure, but I have seen some of them and I hope I can see it theatrically, and with a crowd; it could be a bitchin' experience.

Yep, it will definitely be appealing to some. If the Stones song Sweet Virginia is in the film, even better.

 

Today... regrettably, it was another one of those days which was not good. It was nothing major and I don't want to carp and moan yet again, but more than once, I had to deal with an idiot who couldn't do their job right, and the task wasn't even that difficult. While there were other frustrations, that was the main thing. It was not all bad; I'll just mention I ended up at Disney Springs at Walt Disney World again. For the second time I ate at their new version of Planet Hollywood... speaking of Stallone. Their food and drink were both tasty so while I wasn't originally planning on eating there, I can't complain that was my dinner.

post #151611 of 151633
CHIPS...Doesn't that have Nick Nolte in it?
post #151612 of 151633

No, but Ed Begley, Jr. and Vincent D'Onofrio are. The only recent gross-out comedy Nolte had a role in was The Ridiculous 6, which I have seen and it's atrocious.

Yup. Good movie. Great angry Nolte performance. Classic showdown between himself and J.T. Walsh as a sleazy booster.


Caught the first episode of The Punisher. Enjoyed it! Have a feeling I'm gonna overdose on his family-flashbacks at some point but it's a solid premiere.

Just started it myself.

 

He's just as brutal as his stint in Daredevil.

With Netflix's PUNISHER out today, it's time for a long overdue update on the English edition of my book on the 1989 PUNISHER!
1/ Several publishing houses expressed their interest in the book, the publisher will be announced soon!
2/ "The devil is in the details". The English version is being expanded and edited to make it the definitive making of the original PUNISHER!
3/ More cast & crew members are being pursued to complete the interviews
4/ Renown directors and/or movie stars are being thought after to write a new foreword
5/ No release date but expect a release likely in the second half of 2018...
Thank you all for your support and patience, this will be a unique book !

Thanks for the update, Jox! Glad to hear it's progressing nicely.

..... your joke completely flew over my head last night. I did see that movie too, albeit over 20 years ago. As is, that sort of corruption does exist in college basketball; about six weeks ago, that corruption was blown wide open as the FBI announced they had done a huge investigation. It'd take paragraphs to explain it all (Google can do that for you) but it involves assistant coaches, bribes, a financial adviser, pro basketball agents and even shoe companies. The plot of Blue Chips was unfortunately not far-fetched, in other words.

It needs more Nolte screaming at basketball players, but Blue Chips is a solid, mid-tier Billy Friedkin effort. You also get Ed O'Neill, Louis Gossett Jr., and Robert Wuhl for good measure.

post #151621 of 151633

Speaking of Nolte as a coach of a crooked sports program, looks like next year we'll get the HBO flick HAPPY VALLEY with Pacino as disgraced Penn State coach Joe Paterno.

 

Here's a glimpse of Pacino as Paterno:

 

 

 

What's odd is I don't believe it has been officially reported as to who is playing Jerry Sandusky.

Penn State: just about the most sickening scandal in modern college sports history, yet football program still exists.  

 

Nice job, NCAA.

post #151623 of 151633

At least they're pretty much out off the playoff chase this season. Probably.

 

As sorta cool as it was that they got Bobby Knight to play himself opposite Nolte in BLUE CHIPS I wish they could have cast Brian Dennehy as Knight for that role.

Watched the first 7 eps of The Punisher today.

 

Not bad so far, the main storyline is of Frank hunting down the people responsible for killing his family.

 

I haven't read the comics, so not sure if this is following any particular storyline.

 

There's some fluff, as they have to fill 13 hrs, and not as bat shit violent as his turn in Daredevil. Not so far anyway.

post #151627 of 151633

Could tell after only the first episode which character was going to bog the show down. Hopefully there's nobody as bad on it as Foggy on DD.

post #151628 of 151633

I NEED this NOW:

 

 

https://merryjane.com/culture/heady-entertainment-the-best-new-pop-culture-to-blaze-to-nov-17

 

Devil's Express 

 

 

Devil's Express aka Gang War (1976)
 

Director: Barry Rosen


Cast: Warhawk Tanzania, David Durston, Brother Theodore
 

 

"The plot description alone of Devil's Express can generate a contact high. New York City martial arts master Luke (Warhawn Tanzania) travels to Hong Kong to study and unwittingly brings a 2,000-year-old demon back home with him. The hell-spawned beast then haunts the city's subway tunnels, slaughtering gang members and straphangers alike until Luke can successfully beat its ass back to hell.

Devil's Express is an amazingly insane vintage hybrid of blaxploitation, horror, street gang, and kung fu flicks set in the Rotten Apple of the mid-'70s that plays like a weed-propelled founding chapter of Wu-Tang mythology. It's a thing of glory."

Yeah, there are many reasons to hate the NCAA and how they handled that shocking scandal is quite bad; Penn State should have been punished much more than they were.

Me and Rene saw that movie (no, we weren't together! I just happened to watch it online a few days after he did) a couple of years ago, and here's what I said about it:

I agree with Rene. It just isn't all that fun to watch. You don't care about any of the characters or what they do, the action is meh, there's no gore in the horror parts with the creature, and the ending is literally too dark and how it ends is LAME. I did not think it was awful as I sometimes did laugh (Warhawk is a pretty horrible actor, BTW, and I did laugh at that too) and the fashions/music was groovy. It was also a nice look at 70's New York City, although there are plenty of better movies/videos you can watch to enjoy that. I was just hoping it'd be better; the real low budget was a big factor in how it turned out.

 

Of course, you might enjoy it more than we did.

 

Today, I went to something I've done for the past few Novembers now: attend a fun event at an Orlando hotel where you pay a flat fee and you get to play a bunch of old arcade games and pinball tables. I don't want to mention any of the negatives for today-since I don't want to be a wet blanket-and instead I'll mention that I did enjoy playing the random tables and arcade games. A lot of the licensed tables I'd played before, such as Star Trek, Star Wars, Twister, Bram Stoker's Dracula (actually a huge favorite among the pinball crowd), etc. I overheard some people while eating dinner talking about pinball and turns out, some pretty obscure and rare tables from the 70's and early 80's were there, so I was happy to play them. Also, Billy Mitchell and Walter Day of King of Kong fame were there, which is usually the case. Playing games like Area 51 and Rampage was pretty cool, too. I know people here will appreciate that I even spent a few minutes trying out the arcade machine of KRULL; no kidding. I had no idea that was even a thing; it was as wacky as you'd expect. I'll return there either tomorrow or Sunday; it depends on how I feel tomorrow.

Aside from the titular character, and heavily modified versions of Microchip, Billy Russo, and Rawlins, this is pretty much a new take on The Punisher. The origin is basically the same of a war veteran losing his family, but that has been changed up too. No longer did he and his family just by chance stumble upon a mob hit taking place in the park. Now their deaths have been tied into what he was doing during the war. I don't want to nitpick too much, I just wish they would keep things simple like it was in the comics.

 

Still, I'm enjoying the show so far and I'm up to episode 4. Nice seeing C. Thomas Howell and Tony Plana showing up.

Perfect already answered it for me, but yeah, I didn't enjoy the film at all. I still have the Code Red dvd, but I don't plan on seeing it again any time soon. It certainly looked like a much better film in that trailer than the terrible mess I saw when I saw the entire film.

Haha. I'd forgotten that we saw the film within a few days of each other! It sounds like you had a really great day today playing those pinball machines. I wish something like that happened around here so I could take a few hours and play a bunch of pinball games.

 

 

Today I went to eat at the Arby's that they finally opened a few towns over. That was delicious, and it's wonderful to finally have one near me again. Afterwards I went to the AT&T store as Vanessa's phone has been acting up, and we took advantage of their trade in program, so after meeting her there, we upgraded our iPhone 5S' to iPhone SEs. However, we didn't walk out with them. Since both of our phones are still relatively fine, aside from storage issues, we decided to go with the 128GB models. Models which they don't seem to carry in any stores. So when we went in, we placed the order with one of the sales reps there, and we should have them hopefully in the nearby future. It's a solid deal for us though. The exact price we were paying for our current phones, is what we'll be paying for these newer ones with more storage.

 

Came home and after getting dinner for the three of us, I started watching The Punisher. As I said a ways above, the show is pretty good so far, and I'm enjoying Bernthal's take on the character. He's pretty close to the benchmark portrayal that Dolph did, and that's great.

post #151633 of 151633

Six down with The Punisher. Frank and Micro are fine but there is a lot of clunky stuff to wade through with this series.

 

Gotta say, I'm chuckling a bit at how the '89 film is derided by some because Lundgren didn't wear the skull. Now 28 years later we have a Punisher series made by Marvel in which Castle spends many hours sans-skull.
