This and Security are two different kinds of movies, so I don't know if I can say one is "better" than the other, but I do like both of them.
Banderas is doing well with his DTV resurgence that he has going on lately.
Yeah, I saw Acts Of Vengeance on sunday, and I really liked it a lot. Former CHUD writer/poster Bob Plissken aka Daniel Baldwin saw Banderas' other recent DTV film that Simon West directed, Gun Shy and raved to myself and dude hallenbeck about it. It certainly sounds like a great whacked out film. I'm going to try to see it in the near future.

I've been meaning to revisit Jade for a good long while. Biehn rocks the sleaze 'stache in this one big time. That car chase is boss too. I'd forgotten about Holt McCallany being in it as well. He's one of those character actors that I'm really happy is finally getting the recognition he's long deserved after seeing him in a lot of stuff in the 90's.

Although, at least it's not the Alita: Battle Angel trailer:
Besides Alita's appearance being the product of my nightmares, the CG looks atrocious. I imagine (or hope) the effects are finished by July-as no way can that be the completed CGI, can it?-but I know nothing about the manga and this was not a good first impression.
Yeah, count me in as another that wasn't wowed by the Jurassic World sequel's trailer. It looks ok, and this is coming from someone who LOVED Jurassic World. I read earlier this evening that word has gotten out that everything in the trailer is from the FIRST HALF of the film. That has me interested since that one particular "oceanside" scene looks like it's from the finale.
Yikes. I didn't even bother with the trailer, and just the still image from the Youtube video looks awful. I know nothing of the manga either, so I'm not really that interested in the film, and that will be some money I can save.

That's awesome to hear! Congratulations. That certainly sounds like a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Today something happened that doesn't happen often around here. IT SNOWED. Yes, here down at the deep South portion of Texas where we're just a handful of miles away from the border to Mexico, it snowed. It was 32 degrees this morning, and it snowed until about 11 in the A.M. It has snowed before, and even heavier than this, but that was 13 years ago in December of 2004.
After work, I went to pick up Renata from my parents' house, and saw that my recently ordered blus of Red Dawn, and a little seen horror film called Hellbent had arrived in the mail. Renata and I came home and we started watching Red Dawn. t's still a classic action film, but we didn't finish it as Vanessa arrived and we went to go eat at the nice little cafe in the next town that we go to every so often. Afterwards we went to the Dollar General nearby to get Renata some cough medicine, and while there I found a dvd of the film The Monkey's Paw that has Stephen Lang in the cast for $3, and a brand new blu-ray of the film Jupiter Ascending. I haven't seen that one, but it was $5, and dude hallenbeck told me via facebook messenger that it's worth a look. I dug Cloud Atlas, so maybe I'll like this one.
Now we're back home and we're watching War For The Planet Of The Apes. I was lukewarm on the film when I initially saw it as part of a triple feature during the summer when my friend and I saw all 3 films, but this time around I'm enjoying it a whole lot more.
