Stephen Dorff has been cast opposite Mahershala Ali and Carmen Ejogo in the third season of Nic Pizzolatto’s HBO crime anthology series True Detective.
post #152554 of 152986

Have you talked about "True Detective" before in the Thread?

 

I grabbed the first season in the video store firesale, but hesitated on the follow up which I understand was quite divisive. What was your take on both?

 

First season cast is pretty impressive and I imagine hard to live up to..

post #152555 of 152986

I'm off a mind that S1 wasn't quite as incredible as it was made out to be, while S2 wasn't the disaster that it was branded as.

 

Season 1 is better, no doubt there. But it's good because of MM and Woody. The plot didn't really shake me to my core like it seemed to many others.

 

S2 is uneven and goes off on some silly tangents but is worth seeing for Farrell. Creepy Rick Springfield is an added bonus.

I'll see the new Death Wish. Can't imagine it'll be good though.

 

Willis in Doctor garb just looks weird.

I was interested till I found out they didn't want Goldblum to reprise his role. 

 

Waiting for it to show up on Netflix, now.

Watched the 80s actioner Rage of Honor today starring everyone's favorite ninja, Sho Kosugi.

 

I like how he just walks around with pockets full of ninja weapons, always ready to kill someone.

How do I embed youtube videos?

post #152561 of 152986

Below the video on youtube you'll see an area marked "share." You can click on that and it will give the option to "Embed." When you click on that you'll get a link for the embed address. Copy that link. Then on the boards when you post make sure you have all the posting tools available. Look for the symbol that looks like a film strip near the right side of the tool box. Click that and you'll be prompted to paste your embed code.

 

Here is the embed for that video:

Eli Roth is one of the most exciting and interesting directors of the millennium.  I don't think he's missed yet. He's coming off  KNOCK KNOCK, which is his masterpiece, and a film that has stayed with me - even haunted me in all the best ways.  

 

 

Someone said it's the first movie to deal explicitly with the philosophical incompatibility of Gen X and Gen Y. It's a Gen X nightmare playing on this gen distrust and the old fear of potential devastating consequences of sex.

 

So...I can't wait to see how Eli plays with this material/formula - since DW basically created the Vigilante formula- and on paper he's the modern filmmaker with the same delightfully fucked up Winner-esque sensibility. I don't expect his film to be safe or 'politically correct'. And that's all I want.

The Savage Stack - BLOOD IN, BLOOD OUT: BOUND BY HONOR (1993)

post #152564 of 152986

Was not too big on BLOOD IN, BLOOD OUT. AMERICAN ME is the superior barrio crime epic. It was a Universal title. Shout Factory needs to get on that one.

I had this weird thought: wouldn't it have been hilarious to have Goldblum cameo as his slimeball/ weirdo from the Bronson original and have Willis coincidentally taking him out? Or like Goldblum is still doing home invasions and Willis finally stops him?

No Roth had said from the very start he was going to try and avoid making it white guy kills minorities porn. Between this and Glass I really, really hope this is the start of a solid Bruce retirement run.
post #152566 of 152986

Had a great day out with my parents and Renata. We ate at Macaroni Grill for a late lunch, and then we went to several stores. I didn't buy anything until the last store which was a Target, and I bought some wool socks for the first time as I'd read they're pretty good in dealing with the cold. I put them on as soon as I got home, and that was no lie. They are COMFORTABLE and very warm. I also was able to price match the Target exclusive blu of the theatrical Ghost In The Shell blu (with bonus disc!) to Amazon and got that for less than 10 bucks. That was nice. Came back home to finish watching what Renata and I had started last night, The Karate Kid. She loved it a lot, and it's still a great 80's action drama. With a nice soundtrack too. Looking forward to revisiting the second film.

 

Saw the first episode of The X-Files season 11, and now I'm watching Martin Scorsese's latest film, Silence. Some standout performances from Garfield and Driver.

Well, I always have reservations, and not just because I don't think there needs to be a remake. I don't always love Roth's movies but if it isn't "safe" then that would be nice, even if I don't find it to be a success.

There's a Sho film I haven't watched before; I should, for the wackiness you mentioned and how part of it was filmed in Argentina as one of the companies involved was from that country.

 

It's still cold by Florida standards. It will be around freezing early in the morning, which hasn't happened in a few years. I did not do much today and the same goes for the next few days.

post #152568 of 152986

Rented a few movies tonight, including American Assassin.

 

Color me utterly shocked that I enjoyed this. I don't know if it's lowered expectations, but Michael Keaton is firing on all cylinders to a point where a few edits could make him the protagonist. He devours all the dialogue. He shows you what his Batman would be like 30 years out. Dude needs his own Liam Neeson-type run of action movies, stat.

 

I know Molt didn't like it, but god help me, I did. Just for Keaton, I'm willing to forgive the thin Cannon-meets-MCU story and waste of Scott Adkins. Recommended.

post #152569 of 152986

It just didn't have any sizzle. Feel like I gave O'Brien a fair shot to win me over. Never happened. It's fitting that it was made by CBS Films. Seemed like some sort of NCIS spinoff pilot.

That's the vibe I got, but I have to admit that the movie is elevated to a better pasture by Keaton. I was pleasantly surprised to see that he not only doesn't get killed off, the movie doesn't push him over as the old guy and gets him in on the action.

You can add me to the list.  I'm really looking forward to seeing Bruce back on the big screen again, and I'm an Eli Roth fan so I'm hoping for good things. 

 

Finally caught Jackie Chan's THE FOREIGNER last night on Netflix and was really surprised at just how good it is.  Both Jackie and Pierce Bronson give powerhouse performances in this; Jackie as the unassuming man whose daughter is killed in a senseless IRA bombing, and Pierce as the former IRA leader turned politician.  Jackie sets out in pursuit of the names of the men who committed the bombing, ends up crossing paths with Pierce, and violence ensues.  There's not much in the way of martial arts action here, but what we do get is shot extremely well.  In fact, director Martin Campbell - who has been fairly hit or miss his whole career - delivers one of his finest works with this film.  I had a lot of fun with this one, and will definitely add it to my blu-ray collection whenever it hits disc here in the UK.

I've been very curious about this one, and I've considered more than once during this Christmas break I'm on to rent the dvd from the Redbox. If only for Keaton. I probably won't get to it anytime soon, but it will definitely be in the near future.

Yeah, I've been anticipating the Death Wish remake since the first trailer. I'm all in on that one.

 

 

The Foreigner has been at the dollar theater for about 3 weeks, and I really want to try to get to it before the end of this weekend. I do know that it will be coming to home video next tuesday along with that RESERVOIR CUJO movie with Brody, Malkovich and Banderas that's called Bullet Head. So I may just wait until next week to rent it.

post #152574 of 152986

I haven't watched Casino or Heat in years, but I remember their charaters being scummy. As for Tombstones, that is quite the contrast seeing Jim Hopper from Stranger Things as a low-down loathsome villain.

 

I am still feeling under the weather so I started taking medicine; I figured, "what better movie to see in this condition than Eraserhead?", so that's what I did as it was on TCM a little earlier. I usually don't watch movies that abstract but this was definitely effective at creating an utterly horrifying nightmare of the world. Even if there wasn't the mutant infant the general plot, how it looks and the sound design are enough to give me nightmares.

post #152575 of 152986

Hope you feel better soon, Perfect. I still remember seeing a double bill dvd of the films Possession (Sam Neill and Isabelle Adjani) and Shock (Mario Bava's final film) while dealing with a very nasty case of Walking Pneumonia. The same Walking Pneumonia that basically left me bedridden for most of a week and which led to the fucking Bell's Palsy that has plagued me ever since.

 

Got off track there for a second, but yeah, being really sick and seeing both of those films led to an "Interesting" time with both.

Campbell's prowess as an Action Director can never be understated. The fights in GOLDENEYE and CASINO ROYALE still stand the test of time even today.

Miracle Mile

tn_miraclemile"MIRACLE MILE is a really good and unique movie that would be better if you just saw it not knowing anything about it, which is how I first saw it. So here, let me just give you the quick sales pitch and then you can bail out if you want: Anthony Edwards hears a payphone ringing, decides to answer it, on the other end is a panicked guy apparently calling from a missile silo to warn his dad that a nuclear war has started and he needs to get as far east as he can before we get hit in an hour and a half. It sounds real, so he has to decide what to do with that information, how to escape, who to tell.

 

It’s a tense thriller but it first comes up to you like a friend before it slowly tightens its grip on your throat and never lets its fingers slip. Writer/director Steve De Jarnatt (who wrote STRANGE BREW) diabolically begins it as a quirky romantic comedy. Harry is our nerd hero, so he’s played by avenging nerd Edwards. By day he’s a museum guide who likes to dorkily joke around with kids, by early evening he plays trumpet in a big band trying to be “the king of the Glenn Miller impersonators” according to his narration. Then he meets his “dream girl,” Julie, played by Mare Winningham. On their first date they free some lobsters, he meets her grandparents and they have so much fun they plan to meet up again after she gets off her waitressing shift at midnight.

 

If all had gone as planned they would’ve gone dancing and remained blissfully ignorant of possibly impending nuclear holocaust. They probly would not have gotten laid, if that’s any consolation, because she already scheduled that for the third date. But nothing goes as planned because the power goes out and Harry overnaps and shows up at the diner hours late. He misses the girl but he catches that phone call."

Orphan is a very good film and I have barely watched any of his movies since then because I have heard they aren't as good as what he broke out with.

I like both films; Danny Trejo is in one and Cary Hiroyuki-Tagawa is in the other.  

 

Edward James Olmos makes for a better lead than Damien Chapa, though.  No question.  

 

Chapa was sensational in US Seals 2, though.

Unlike Elvis, I think Eli Roth is shit.  He's the Amy Schumer of film directors; he's had so many chances he'll get it right eventually.  Right?

 

My expectation for Death Wish is that it will be a disposable time-waster, like pretty much every remake that we have deal with.  Any better than that, then it will be a resounding success.  

 

If Molt gives it the thumbs up, I may give it a shot in the cinema.

I saw The Foreigner and I loved it.  This was a mature thriller that was gripping enough for you to ignore some of the less believable stuff. So great to see Jackie Chan in a winner finally. 

 

I did laugh at how ruthless the UK police were.  You need to be a non-white man for them to show you that kind of love.

Didn't you love The Shallows?  I may be mistaking you with someone else.  

 

Run All Night is my favourite Serra film so far.  Orphan was pretty much a comedy.

I'm trying not to get my hopes too high for this one.  I hope it goes Theatrical in the UK. 

 

I'm hoping that Lance Henriksen is playing Daddy Cage. Also, Nic saying it's his favourite film in the last 10 years (since Knowing?  National Treasure 2?).

post #152596 of 152986

I saw Beyond Skyline and really enjoyed it.  

 

The only shame is that the low-budget kinda becomes apparent in the finale, but it's not enough to ruin the whole thing.

 

I remember the first film and was frustrated that it ended at the exact point that things got interesting; dude has his brain removed, put inside an alien body, he retains his consciousness and prepares to fight for the life of his girlfriend [Roll Credits].

 

This actually rolls with that and we have a crazily entertaining film.  Not everything works, but overall a very entertaining film.  I was also surprised by Iko Uwais' English delivery.  He has come a long way in a very short amount of time.

I talked about Iko Uwais' English with Dude Hallenbeck and Bob Plissken when I saw it, as I was very impressed with his line delivery and how natural it sounded. You can tell he really wanted to get it right, and didn't want to sound like he's delivering them phonetically or slipping up with certain words. I'm sure this will lead to him getting many more English language film roles so more people can see his awesome mastery of Silat.

 

 

 

Saw Hell Night earlier today via the new blu. It's said to have some standard definition footage since they could only find a film print and not any better film elements. I can say that aside from some "screen jutter" I noticed midway through the film, I didn't really notice much of the standard definition footage at all, and it's not as jarring as the way it is on the new Silent Night, Deadly Night blu-ray. It's still a great and atmospheric horror film, and I'm glad I picked up the blu-ray if only for the copious amount of extras alone. There's a bunch of interviews, and each one of them is over 20 minutes.

 

Right now I'm watching a sci-fi horror film that is decidedly much worse. The Tom Jane/Ron Perlman film The Mutant Chronicles. I got the dvd for a buck at the one K-Mart that's still open back on Black Friday. This thing is mostly all green screen, and it shows. Badly. It looks like a glorified student film, and even though they got Malkovich of all people in this thing for a cameo, he looks and sounds so bored, and was probably really happy to get his role done. Among the cast are some actors of note besides the ones I mentioned. Sean Pertwee, Shauna (The Descent) Macdonald, Devon Aoki, Benno Furman, and Tom Wu all have sizable supporting roles as part of the crew of soldiers who go along with Jane and Perlman on a mission to destroy an alien artifact or something. I'm barely paying attention to it.
