Agreed. It's technically a sequel to a game called 50 Cent: Bulletproof
, which most people say is God-awful and is hardly as batshit insane as Blood on the Sand appears to be.
I'd like to thank everyone who talked about the chain of stores known as Big Lots; believe it or not, before today I had never been in one. Don't ask me why I never decided to venture into one. I had free time tonight so I did some other things, and I happened to pass by a pair of Big Lots stores, so I went into both. In the first one I bought a package of 3 pens and some energy drinks. Holy shit is their selection of energy drinks great. I found some stuff I had been wanting to try for awhile now, but hadn't found... until I went in there. All of them being like 60 cents each... fuck yeah!
The second store I went in... that's where it ties into this thread. Their DVD selection there was much better. There was a pile of MGM DVD's and another pile of the other DVD's. In the latter I found the recently discussed Breakout
. I hadn't even heard of it before this thread, but due to the good stuff said about it, I decided to add the DVD to my cart. In the MGM pile I got the 2003 DVD release of To Live and Die in L.A.
I got that too. Note that the two DVD's were THREE DOLLARS each. That's a tremendous deal. The car chase in L.A. is worth more than three dollars on its own.
This doesn't have much to do with this thread but I'll tell it anyway. As I was looking for DVD's in the second store, the lone cashier working there started chatting with me out of the blue, and claimed that me and him looked exactly alike! I didn't really think so, but when he assumed that I was a computer geek like he was (when he started talking about graphical user interfaces, I was lost), I started to get a little frightened. Thankfully he went away to deal with other customers. When I went and checked out, he was still stunned that I wasn't a computer nerd (gee, thanx, buddy), then he started saying-in so many words, without being this blunt-that he was turned on by computer chips, then stated (and this IS almost a verbatim quote) that to him, building a computer is akin to giving birth to a child!
Never was I so happy to leave a store in my entire life.
Right after that quote the checkout process was completed; I gave a nervous laugh, then I tried my best not to literally run out of the store and into my car. I mean, yikes.
There were several other DVD's there I could have picked up but maybe I will at a later date-hopefully without Mr. Gives Birth To Computers there. They had a British made Western (!) starring Sean Connery (!!) called Shalako
, and the original 1970 Ned Kelly
, starring Mick Jagger*. I imagine both are filled with unintentional laughs (the latter movie, I know Jagger has a beard that makes him look like he churns butter for a living) so maybe I should buy both for that reason. Has anyone seen either... or for that matter, another movie that randomly has Jagger in it, Freejack
* Looking at Jagger's IMDb page, I stumbled across a bizarre-sounding movie called Running Out of Luck
. The plot synopsis being "A rock singer goes to Brazil to shoot a video, but winds up getting kidnapped and turned over to the oversexed owner of a banana plantation." is great enough, but hearing that it co-stars Rae Dawn Chong, Dennis Hopper and Jim Broadbent is even better. The gravy is seeing this sentence from an IMDb user: "Casino, banana plantation, Rae Dawn Chong wearing a HUGE brimmed hat & seducing a prison/jail guard with her luscious breasts, only to have him pass out after suckling her drug-laced nipples." Reading that, I so
want to see this now and if I ever do...
