post #73601 of 114427

Welcome aboard, SecretAsianMan! Glad to hear you like this awesome thread, the B-Movie Column, and my Clint article. I've got another for him brewing in that mess that is my brain.

 

Cary Hiroyuki-Tagawa has had quite a few good guy roles. He was a "Red Army Hammerhead" boss in Nemesis that helps out Olivier Gruner he was "HONG KONG NARCOTICS YOU BASTARD!" in the epic James Bond film Licence To Kill, he was helping out Wesley Snipes and Sean Connery in Rising Sun, and lastly he was one of the vampire hunters who was taken all to soon from us in John Carpenter's Vampires.

post #73602 of 114427

He was in the live movie adaption of TEKKEN as well.

 

Wellcome aboard, SecretAsianMan!

post #73603 of 114427

Welcome SecretAsianMan. Favorite Tagawa good guy role has got to be the episode of Miami Vice where Tagawa teams up with Edward James Olmos to foil the Yakuza in Miami.

 

Couple of pics from the upcoming Woody Harrelson crooked cop flick RAMPART. First here's one where you can spot Ice Cube in the background taking a break from his crummy Coors ads:

In this one, Woody enjoys a day at the beach with none other than Ned Beatty:

A warm welcome to you as well, Secret Asian Man. Like everyone else, I'm elated to see that we've gained another comrade from our hard work on the column, and your vast knowledge and mileage in this world is a pleasure.

The Miami Vice episode Molt is referring to, The Rising Sun of Death, is one of the fourth season's strong notes, featuring not only fine work from Tagawa as a Japanese private eye but also R. Lee Ermey in one of his first post-Full Metal Jacket performances. Love how it's a precursor to Black Rain and Showdown in Little Tokyo. Tagawa also appears in one of the very few decent Vice outings from season five, Asian Cut.

 

Tagawa's good stuff. Always makes for a nice character actor appearance.

 

Rampart is shaping up to be great stuff from those stills. If all goes well, this could very well be the thread's prestige pick of the 2011 Oscar season. Great to see Ice Cube doing something worth a shit for the first time since, holy shit, Three Kings.

 

I'd like to assume Woody is about to execute Ned Beatty for all his cruelty towards Burt Reynolds and for being such a disturbingly abhorrent scumbag in the form of a magenta teddy bear in Toy Story 3. Fucker was like the Clarence Boddicker of family films.

post #73605 of 114427

SecretAsianMan, I also bid you...Welcome, to CHUD.COM's...B Action Movie Thread!

post #73606 of 114427

I sincerely wish that Rampart featured Harrelson pointing a gun at the face of every single character he spoke to.

 

It's kind of like if I could do a comedy barbarian movie I would have the main character stoicly walking away while wherever he was in the previous scene is burning in the background, whether he fought anybody there or not.

post #73607 of 114427

Welcome, SecretAsianMan. Your screen name and what it's referring to makes me laugh... in a good way.

 

While it's for bad guys role, I remember Tagawa from his roles in the movie I named myself after on here, and Showdown in Little Tokyo.

post #73608 of 114427

No love for Ice Cube in this unjustly ignored production?

 

Are-We-Done-Yet--moviepageimage.jpg

post #73609 of 114427

I'm honestly shocked that Ice Cube didn't continue playing the same role in the new TV spinoff of those films.  Instead, poor Terry Crews has the honors.

 

BTW, thanks for all the suggestions and feel free to keep 'em coming if you think of anymore.

It's actually been out in some countries for more than a year. I've seen it last year when screened at the Cannes festival. It's a bit different from his previous yakuza movies, lots of talking and a bit confusing but there are some great novelty deaths.

Finally, you got Jean-Claude Van Damme into the movie. Was that down to you?

Yeah [laughs]. Jean-Claude Van Damme, I was like, "I've got to have him in the movie somehow!" I got to meet him and take my photograph with him! [laughs]

Do you have a wish list of action stars?

Yeah, it's my bucket list! He's an amazing guy. It was great to meet him after going to his movies since I was a kid!

What's the best Van Damme movie?

Bloodsport.

That was easy.

But I like Cyborg, too!

Jennifer Yuh, thank you very much!

I didn't realise your first post gets modded.

So Hello everyone!

 


Welcome.  I only recently started posting myself.  Like you I merely read the posts by the Thread denizens and decided I wanted to be a part of the discussions one here.  I'm a UK B-actioner, too.

 

As my Avatar suggests, I am a Cary Tagawa appreciator.  He really needs to work more.
 

Yet another similarity, I had a local Cannon Cinema which closed in the late 80s.  One of the last films playing there was Jaws: The Revenge.  I remember this even though I was a little child because the poster remained on the wall for a couple of years afterwards.  Scared the shit out of me.  However, the building itself remains exactly as it was back then.  It is currently a Nightclub.

 

I have seen several Uwe Boll films.  Most are awful, but fall short of being so bad their actually quite good.  Dungeon Siege is an exception for me, miscast, poorly written and directed with some cracking fight sequences (Courtesy of Ching Siu Tong). 

 

As a UK contributor you can offer your own opinion of films that haven't opened in the US.  Recent examples include Ironclad (Good), The Ward (Good) and Blitz (Disappointing).

I'm a sucker for wilderness horror, so I had fun with this. My favorite parts were when the unknown entity was setting traps for them, and they had to battle the woods and river. I wanted more of that stuff. The movie gets crazy once it got to the cabin in the woods. I loled when it turned out to be an angry WWII Rambo that was after them! Still his reveal was pretty cool. Verdict: A cool little B; tthe ultimate Hal Holbrook experience!

post #73617 of 114427

Thanks guys, very happy to be here.

 

Macready mate, I remember standing outside Cannon staring up at a Masters of the Universe poster, probably drooling. Strangest "earliest memory" to have. There just hasn't been anything like a Cannon Cinema since, UCI, UGC, Vue, now Cineworld. All shit. smile.gif

You might enjoy checking through this site macready http://www.cannon.org.uk/cannonmanager.htm

 

Yeah, your avatar is pretty awesome. "Your soulllll is mine!!" One of the rare eloquent speakers in movies, him and Dolph aswell.

 

Thats crazy, I've been meaning to pick up the Miami Vice series' I know it had some great guest stars, cool to know the man Cary is in it twice!

 

I love Vampires; great movie and Cary's character had such a distinct look, shame the entire crew got wiped out and a Baldwin was left with James Woods.

Anybody ever read the book Vampire$ by John Steakly?

 

Tekken was a horrendous movie, but seems to have given birth to Cary heir-apparent Ian Anthony Dale the guy who was Kazuya (also pretty sure in The Hangover)

 

I'm looking forward to Ironclad and The Ward on Blu soon and I read your thoughts on Blitz earlier Macready, it's a shame. Books quite good though.

 

 

So on tonights agenda I have;

Welcome SecretAsianMan...

 

I want to go ahead and say that I too am in the Hollow Point fan camp. I'm actually a big fan of Thomas Ian Griffith in general. I have no problem reiterating ad nauseum (usually on this very thread) how he had the potential to be the king of the DTV action world. He had the moves, leading man looks and is actually a good actor. He's the best actor out of all these guys... Unfortunately he either has terrible taste or terrible agents or both. Because, aside from Hollow Point and the excellent Excessive Force, he never made any other movies worth a damn.

 

But I rented them all... Each time saying to myself THIS ONE will be good. Each time coming away disappointed. I have vivid memories of grabbing the box for Ulterior Motives and throwing it across the room about 45 minutes in, when I realized just how much of a piece of shit it was.

 

I didn't bother unleashing this wrath on Crackerjack, simply because I knew from the cover that it would suck dick and balls. And it lived up to the promise of doing just that.

 

Then Hollow Point came along and it was so refreshingly good.... It doesn't get too much love around here. But I like it a lot. And it features a fine unsung Lithgow villain to boot.

post #73619 of 114427

Macready, Between...Showdown In Little Tokyo and Mortal Kombat, count me as a fan of Cary Tagawa as well!  He was...Wasted, along with everyone else in...ELEKTRA!  Duel Of Legeinnds, sounds interesting.  Apparently it gets released this october.

What do you guys think? I think it'll be fun.

post #73621 of 114427

Well, I finally got off my butt and watched Blood and Bone all the way through last night. Michael Jai White was badass as usual and Eamon Walker was great as the villain. I loved the end-credits scene where Walker ran afoul of Kimbo Slice's crew.

post #73622 of 114427

I will share the love that everyone here has for Cary Tagawa. He was a go-to villain for 90s B-action movies.

I'm cautiously curious. Anderson has his faults, but he understands 3D. There's some good casting in there-- now let's hope the script doesn't try anything foolish.

post #73624 of 114427

Looks like crap to me. And I am a guy that goes real easy on Paul W S Anderson.

 

Oh by the way, AsianSecretMan, I've read Vampires the book by John Steakley. Jack Crow is an ex-DEA Agent leading a team of Vampire Hunters in this one. Still a fun read, with plenty of vampire hunting action.

 

I enjoyed TEKKEN as a film as its own rights. Nice eye candy from Kelly Overton and several good fights.

Thats cool Erix, Crackerjack fans unite!! errrr... Yeah I liked Crackerjack, although I was 10 when I saw it. Don't hate me!

Have you seen Crackerjack 2 with Judge Reinhold or Crackerjack 3 with Oliver Gruner & Bo Swenson???

 

Oooo, have you seen Timecop: The Berlin Decision?? Horrendous, it's like 40 minutes long.

 

Although I'll never understand why Jason Scott Lee isn't a bigger star.

 

post #73626 of 114427

NEVER BACK DOWN 2 may get a Theatrical release.

 

WF: Do you know an exact release date? I read somewhere that it was sometime in June.

SE: I wouldn't go by any of that. They are still in negotiations with distribution. Originally I think it was going to go straight to DVD but once the studio saw the finished product they realized it's way better than the first one so they are working on a theatrical release

Pretty much what felix said. Vampire$ is a WAY different novel than the movie. It only takes a fraction of the material from the book into the movie. So much so that one of the lead characters ends up as a vampire at the end of the book, and it's the last person you expect. One thing I really liked was how males vampires can't get an erection. Since they're dead, all they can do is lead girls on and can't romance them like they expect in Anne Rice books and that shit Twilight. Steakley was onto something there.

That line brought the audience down last August when we went to go see it. That and "He wants to be President."

post #73631 of 114427

Just finished watching Sinners and Saints and I liked it quite a bit.

post #73632 of 114427

Looks like Headshot is a working title, WB and Joel Silver are definitely on board this thing, and now, Sung Kang, a.k.a. Han from the Fast and the Furious movies, has joined the cast. No word on whether he'll be taking Thomas Jane's place, but he's great in the F n' F movies and it'll be cool to see him play off Stallone.

post #73633 of 114427

So I was watching Super 8 tonight when suddenly alarms and shit started going off in the theater and the movie cut out.  It never came back on, despite many of us waiting a half hour for it to do so.  We got refund tickets and whatnot but it was a lame way to end the evening.  Anything like this ever happen to you guys?

post #73634 of 114427

So, I just got back about 45 minutes ago from that arty Enzian Theater I've mentioned here before. They usually show high-brow fair, but also sometimes they show things like Black Dynamite, AN EVENING WITH EDWARD JAMES OLMOS back in April, and in a late night screening tonight, Hobo With A Shotgun. They started showing it last Friday and after Saturday night it's gone, so I figured seeing it late on a Friday night would make for an interesting crowd. Well, not too many people were there, but some (not all, from what I could tell) enjoyed it a lot.

 

My reaction?

 

HO-LEE FUCK!

 

I was expecting something monkeyshit insane along the lines of early Peter Jackson or Troma, but this exceeded what I was expecting. I don't know if you'd call it a good movie, but who cares... it was an amazing experience seeing something that crazy on the big screen. I dug it all, from the 70's opening titles, to the 80's (?) setting to the LOL ultra-cheesetastic 80's-riffing ending credit song that actually is from the 80's. It went all out to be totally fucked up, and they succeeded with flying colors. Even I cringed at some of the graphic violence and gore, but then I went and laughed at all the zany shit I was seeing. If you haven't seen it, I would say that it's a Potato In Your Pants Good Time. Speaking of Potato In Your Pants, Abby... but I'll stop right there. I plan on getting it on DVD next month.

 

My time there aside from the film was nice too. I sat at the open-air bar they have outside the theater. I had two big glasses of hard cider, so I had my buzz on while watching the film, which is probably the best way to watch that motion picture. While I watched the Hobo rid the streets of Fuck City of filth, I consumed the manly meal of chicken fingers and fries with a root beer, which is a great American meal to have while viewing... a Canadian film. But you know what I mean.

 

Sorry Rene, but that one dame you'd like to meet (Rumer Willis with larger cans) wasn't there at all bartending.

post #73635 of 114427

Hey Plissken you spoiled yourself with The Killer (one of my all time favorite films let alone action movies) and Hard Boiled (a classic).

 

Hard to top those but A Better Tomorrow 2 has a doozy of an ending too bad there isn't more than that. I second Molt's recommendation of Bullet In The Head.

 

Easily Woo's most overlooked film outside of the US.

 

Tiger On Beat is alot of fun recommended. If you haven't seen Police Story 1,2 or 3 you owe it to yourself to check those out. Also Eastern Condors and Iron Monkey as well.

 

Speaking of Hong Kong films watched Ip Man 2 recently and came away entertained. It gets a bit over the top and weirdly enough goes Rocky 4 in parts but its good.

 

Not a pox on the first film which is spectacular if you haven't seen it.

 

Watched a few oldies on Netflix instant recently I'm Gonna Git Ya Sucka which is still really funny especially if you know Blacksplotation films.

 

Had never seen Ecks Vs Sever and now wish I never had. Lucy Liu and Banderas truly stink and what a waste of Ray Park!

 

Got around to watching Repo Men (liked) and The Losers (Which I didn't).

 

So far so good with the comic book films this summer really enjoyed Thor (despite some huge flaws) and X-Men First Class is the best of the bunch and a top 5 comic book film.

I just mentioned it a few days ago, in that when we saw Tron: Legacy in December, that not only did we miss the beginning of the movie, due to a car accident on the expressway, that once we got to the part when Clu is talking about going into the real world, that the bulb in the projector burned out, and they weren't able to get it back up and running. We got a refund  on it, but i was pissed in not being able to finish seeing the movie, as I was really enjoying it.

Hobo With A Shotgun is friggin' awesome, and it's sad that Rumer Willis with larger cans wasn't there. I'm sure she would have convinced you to have more hard cider. I know I would have.

A Stallone vs. SUNG KANG movie might be cool, but the article says Sung has been cast in a supporting role. I think Jane's role is a major one.

This looks like the kind of cheesy/awesome blend the B action crowd will love the shit out of. That it's about what it's about makes the b-action vibe even more awesome.

Been hearing a lot of Scarface comparisons on this one, and watching the trailer, I definitely want in on this. Fucking insanity.

 

Also nice to see that Lee Tamahori seems poised to have his first worthwhile film since The Edge (his one season two Sopranos episode notwithstanding).

WAIT

Lee Tamahori directed this?

Forget what I said, this should have a bunch of retarded action.

Thanks for the trailer, Phil. First I've heard of that film. Hope it gets a decent release because I could use something coming out of nowhere to liven up the summer.

 

I don't see Sung Kang having the role that Jane was to play in HEADSHOT. Can't quite picture Kang's name above the title in a major release at this point. Plus there are all sorts of roles aside from the 2 leads that are going to be announced soon. Stallone's hitman partner, Jane or whoever else is playing the main cop's partner, and all the heavies. With shooting set for June 27th we should be having a lot of casting announcements in the next couple weeks.

 

Still don't know a ton about the story of US4, but at some point it appears Arlovski will be a Unisol plumber:

Although I'll never understand why Jason Scott Lee isn't a bigger star.


I remeber reading Vern's review of this and wanting to watch it solely for a bit where Lee screams in the middle of a fight scene and rips his shirt Hulk Hogan style.  When it got to that bit in the film the 'LOL' moment had been cut out!!!  It's as if the distributors read the review and decided to cut that bit out.

What, no love for Along Came a Spider, XXX: State of the Union and Next?

 

I have to admit i like XXX2 because it is hilarious (I thought about you every night I was in Prison!) and Next features a wonderful performance by Nic Cage's Hair.  Also note the scene at the end of Next when cage is kissing Biel, stops and then goes back in for another quick one.  I bet Cage improvised that.  wink.gif

Those costumes look extremely shitty.  But i remember us thinking the same thing when we saw some shots for Regeneration.  What's very encouraging is Hyams seems determined to create something that isn't a retread of the previous installment.
