Set report of GHOST RIDER: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE.

 

Despite the negative feedback, i'll definitely watch this just to see Christopher Lambert back on the Big Screen.

post #79402 of 113262

HunterTarantino, No, I wasn't upset about MI: Ghost Protocol at all!

 

Fazer, I enjoy musicals.  Les Miserables is basically the original blueprint for...The Fugitive. It is set during the French Revolution. Jean ValJean-Hugh Jackman steals food while on parole, Inspector Javert-Russell Crowe gets wind of it and the chase is on.  Anne Hathaway is Hugh's ladylove as well!

Poster for Cage, John Cusack and yep, 50 Cent in FROZEN GROUND:

 

http://www.moviehole.net/201251293-london-insider-m-getting-a-makeover-for-skyfall

 

frozenground.jpg

 

Here's the synopsis:

 

 

 

Cage is the State Trooper and Cusack is the serial killer. 50 Cent plays an Alaskan pimp named Clate Johnson. That's not me being witty.

 

Some Gary Daniels news from the same link posted above:

 

 

 

Daniels and Vernon Wells. I'm down.

 

Finally, Moviehole reports that Seagal's True Justice series is indeed getting a second season and it has "assumingly" been picked up by the Reelz channel for air:

 

http://www.moviehole.net/201251299-steven-seagals-true-justice-gets-a-second-season


Forgot about Frozen Ground.  Though the synopsis looks promising, the poster looks really lazy and Hudgens appears to be Cage's co-star.  She's no Amber Heard.

 

Daniels and Wells?  Sure, i'm interested.

 

What!! True Justice is being picked up after the aborted first season?  The DTV releases must've done great business.

If you see the movie, the best time to watch the trailer is in THE NEXT THREE DAYS after, because it spoils everything, but it's good enough that, while at the end of the year, I wouldn't say it's on THE A-TEAM of the year's releases, it's still pretty good. But that ending... that ending... it makes me want to unleash the WRATH OF THE TITANS on the filmmaker and make him eat BREAKFAST ON PLUTO while I send his NEXT OF KIN to the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.


I have no idea what you are talking about.  smile.gif

The Black Marks - Sounds like it could be fun!

 

Django Unchained - He's playing Leo DiCaprio's racist ranchhand henchman!  Even if the others don't turn out well, we all know this will get knocked out of the park!

 

 

He also originally had a supernatural thriller called Undying set for this year, but I don't know if it actually got made.  I'm guessing it never got off the ground.
 


Withdrawal?  You and me, both.  We don't see him enough anymore.  I even watched and enjoyed Dreamer recently, for crying out loud.

Found the Official Synopsis and Press Release of Steven Seagal's Maximum Conviction here.

 

To be released by Anchor Bay Films.

 

Quote:

In the tradition of explosive action films, Maximum Conviction follows Tom Steele (Seagal), a former special forces-black ops operative, who now works for a private security firm (ala Blackwater). His current assignment is to oversee the decommissioning of an old prison. Steele's highly skilled HSO team is led by his buddy, Manning (Austin). As Manning and the team await Steele to join them at a local bar to celebrate yet another successful operation, Steele is delayed by the arrival of two mysterious female prisoners, Charlotte (Aliyah O’Brien) and Samantha (Steph Song), who need to be housed in the facility for only one night. Suddenly, an elite force of mercenaries, led by another former special forces operative Blake (Michael Pare), make an assault on the prison and begin a violent search for the mysterious new prisoners. Steel and Manning team up against the mercenaries in a bloody war to protect the two female prisoners and find the truth.

 

Wonder which of the female prisoners The Sensei will hook up with in this one?

post #79405 of 113262

A movie I'm curious about: in his DVD column, Harry raved about THE GUARD, a black comedy buddy cop movie starring Don Cheadle and Brendan Gleeson. How cool is that combo? I'll definitely be renting.

Well gents, got some interesting personal news. Rene......IS GETTING MARRIED. It was officially confirmed by Vanessa earlier this afternoon after she booked the place where we're going to have it at. We've got a date set in March, and that's when I say goodbye to bachelorhood.

 

Now that in now way will prevent me from enjoying sweaty Jason Statham fighting with Scott Adkins in The Expendables 2, or other extremely heterosexual action movies, like Commando.

post #79409 of 113262

Rene there's still time to bail out and focus your efforts on landing Gina Carano.

Here's a clip of her beating someone up in HAYWIRE

 

 

Seems like there's a bit of Ocean's Elevenish music in there too.

post #79410 of 113262

For your consideration: have the reception at Big Lots. 3.99 DVDS for all the groomsmen/bridesmaids!

 

Seriously, congrats, my man.

post #79411 of 113262

Thanks, Wade! Thanks, Elvis!

 

Gina Carano can beat me up any day.

post #79412 of 113262
post #79413 of 113262

OOOOHHHHHH!!! That might make me beg Vanessa to finally get cable here. So I can drool over Rhona Mitra as a ruthless soldier named DALTON!

 

Has the first season been announced for video yet? I want to get that as soon as it comes out.

post #79414 of 113262

I forgot: don't let Franz Sanchez crash your wedding. Or to allow any PARTY CRASHERS like Stephen Lang.

 

Wait, that's totally okay.

post #79415 of 113262

Stephen Lang is always welcome!

 

Dario can stay away though. I can have a nice HONEYMMMMMOOOOOOOONNNNNN on my own.

Congratulations! Will you be having the reception at Buffalo Wild Wings?

 

I watched Don't Be Afraid of the Dark tonight and it was OK, but not nearly as scary as people made it out to be. And the ending was rather lame. Wouldn't Guy Pearce 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

be arrested for murder? "Where is your girlfriend? She just disappeared into the pit in the basement? Taken by tiny creatures you say? Book him!"

 

post #79417 of 113262

Thanks, Falcon!

 

I saw Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark as well. Some decent scares, but I agree that it wasn't frightening. The creatures reminded me of even more evil Gremlins. The opening sequence is pretty freaky I have to say. I'm just happy to have bought the Blu-ray to support the founder of this amazing website.

 

We're going low key, so the reception won't be at Buffalo Wild Wings, but I have to say, now that you mention it, I want to eat there!

 

 

Saw Despicable Me, Triumph Of The Will, and my Netflix disc for the week, Timecrimes, earlier. Despicable Me is still as funny as when I first saw it last year, Triumph Of The Will shows that the portrayal of Hitler in Inglourious Basterds was not that much of a parody, as he really did rant and flail his arms around. The same music that occurs during the book burning scene in Berlin in Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade plays during the movie as well.  Timecrimes was the best of the lot. I love time travel movies, and this one had a pretty good "fix" of everything, even though in the end, it doesn't really seem to have been entirely fixed. Still, I greatly enjoyed it.

 

 

Now I'm revisiting 13 Assassins on Blu-ray courtesy of Mr. Nick Nunziata. First time I saw it, I wasn't crazy over it, but seeing it this second time around, I'm liking it a lot more.

Yeah, he's loosely attached to a movie about the Waco incident, but I think it (like Undying) is still searching for financing.

You are not alone in your musical love!  I proudly admit the fact that I got West Side Story for Christmas on Blu-ray!!!

post #79420 of 113262

GREAT NEWS, Rene!

 

I wish you the best. 2012 is looking to be a special year for all of us.

 

Just came back from The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (2011).

 

Not a bad film, but if you've seen the Swedish films and read the book, this isn't essential viewing. Some minor changes to the plot, nothing that will surprise you. Julian Sands has a few silent scenes in the flashbacks though.

I have seen it and really enjoyed it.  It isn't the greatest thing ever made but Gleeson's un-PC intellectual is a brilliant character.  Cheadle is basically just reacting to him and other rural Irish types.  Mark Strong plays a Londoner who doesn't have a lot patience. 

 

Some great stuff, i'd give you some of Gleeson's best quotes, but i'd be spoiling some of the best scenes.

Congratulations.  Speaking for myself, I hated the getting married part but love being married.  Though, having kids and a wife really make it hard to sit through a film in one go.

I really enjoyed it but I did feel they didn't make the most of it being the second attempt at the material.  They spent a lot more to acheive what the original did.  However, I hope to see the same people take on the sequels.  They weren't perfect and it'd be interesting to see if they could make more efficient thrillers and improve on them.

Rene (Mr.Eko), Congratulations to you and the soon to be...Mrs. Eko...err...Rangel!  Also, when your family and friends throw rice, remind them use the...uncooked variety, or people will get...Steamed!

Rhona Mitra in STRIKE BACK is awesome news! Love to see one of my favourite gals still doing genre works.

 

I still remember her huge boobs in Christopher Lambert's BEOWULF.

post #79424 of 113262

Congratulations Rene!

 

I imagine YOUR FRIEND ROLANDO is best man?

 

In any case, I'm sure you can count on your B Action brethren to all be there in spirit.

 

Be sure to serve POPPYCOCK at the reception.

I especially liked this movie for the MAIN GUY combo of Mark Strong and Liam Cunningham. Strong is especially hilarious, since he clearly has contempt for pretty much everyone else in organized crime. Love that he hands a briefcase of cash to another goon, and the guy asks, "Is it all there?" Strong rolls his eyes and gives the most condescending long-winded reply.

 

It's more of a low-key comedy, but it ends in a weirdly intense shootout. It's really funny, though.

We're keeping the wedding low key, so I'm hoping that everything goes off without a hitch, and is just a fun time for all.

 

I agree that the bicycle girl's nudity was just there, because he saw her doing it in the beginning for no reason, then we find out the reason was his other self doing it. Sleazy indeed!

I was just thinking that over the other night. I may just end up having best men, as I'm friendly with one of her younger brothers as well.

 

 

We've done everything unconventional so far, so why not continue it?

 

 

It will be nice to know that all of you gents will be there in spirit.

 

 

 

 

 

And Bob, I was going to make a Cruising reference on facebook last night, but she didn't want me to do it last night. So I'm saving that gag for another day!

Kate Beckinsale talks TOTAL RECALL

 

Apparently her Lori is a more of a Richter henchman this time around.

 

Are they at least re-using the Jerry Goldsmith score at the beginning? If not, this fucking remake sounds like a disaster to me.

Strong has contempt for everyone he comes across in the film.  Love his line to the policeman.

Cranston is the only reason i'm interested in this (maybe the a-BIEL-ing Jessica, also).

 

I'll repeat what someone else said, was it really necessary to spend the alleged $200 million on this?

Congratulations! I'd say that you should invite Charlie Sheen, but on the way there in the Jeep he'd probably go crazy and jump out of the vehicle while it's on a bridge... but anyway, hopefully the reception has Pabst on tap and the wedding singer will be Hunter singing karaoke.

That is quite the trio of movies there. It sounds like a triple play that only you could come up with, and I mean that as a compliment.

post #79432 of 113262

Beaks in his Top 10 of 2011 on my favorite movie of the year ATTACK THE BLOCK:

 

"Joe Cornish's remarkably assured debut gained additional resonance after last summer's riots in England. The disenfranchisement, the eagerness to portray London's ethnic youths as mindless, hoodied miscreants... it all flooded out from the BBC, FOX News and pretty much any outlet that values easy villainization over a nuanced discussion of civil unrest. Cornish's sci-fi/horror/comedy hybrid - which finds a group of lower-class kids defending their housing development against an alien invasion - put the mainstream media to shame by allowing its criminal-minded characters to mature once they realize their misdeeds have brought home this extraterrestrial plague. These aren't bad kids; they just don't see the upshot to playing by society's rigged rules. ATTACK THE BLOCK is genre filmmaking at its finest: a fast-paced, cleverly structured yarn on the surface, and a socially conscious commentary on the uncertain future of the country underneath (punctuated by John Boyega's Moses dangling none-too-subtly from the Union Jack before being arrested)."

post #79433 of 113262

I saw a really interesting Australian film (they don't come around too often) called The Bank, it's more of a thriller about a mathematical genius Jim Doyle (David Wenham) who comes up with an idea to predict events through a mathematical program. He takes the idea to the CEO of Centabank Simon O'Reilly (Anthony LaPaglia, who instantly sees the potential and starts thinking big, also, he's a greedy asshole) who employs Doyle to make it a reality. As Doyle makes more and more progress with the idea, the film switches to the plight of a couple in rural Australia who applied for a loan through Centabank and got screwed leading to a tragedy (which I won't reveal but it's not pretty) and we see these two worlds collide. It's a pretty neat little thriller, I'm amazed it hasn't been remade with Alec Baldwin and Jeremy Renner.

post #79434 of 113262

Are you getting a lot of THE DEVIL INSIDE banners here at the CHUD site as well?

 

It's been getting some terrible reviews. One of the rare times i've seen a film get a "F" or 0/10.

 

In fact, i heard the film doesn't even have an ending. They give you a website link at the end to learn more.

Secondly happy birthday to Nicolas Cage!

 

 

post #79437 of 113262

dude hallenbeck, CAGEy...Nic, could even be a...BLAZEing Candle on his B'Day Cake, as he is the...Ghost Rider!

post #79438 of 113262

Too bad Ghost Rider 2 blows ass. Wasn't the whole point to make it darker. It's still PG-13!!!

 

Neveldine and Taylor have one good movie to their credit if you ask me and it rhymes with spank.

post #79439 of 113262

Not two good movies that rhyme with spank?

post #79440 of 113262

No comic book movie should be rated R.

 

 

In honor of his birthday, my all new Top 15 Nic Cage performances:

 

1. RAISING ARIZONA - a hilarious live action cartoon character; also he's surprisingly sweet

2. FACE/OFF - he and Travolta play off each other perfectly

3. WILD AT HEART -  Cage does Elvis

4. VAMPIRE'S KISS - the crown jewel of his method brilliance

5. VALLEY GIRL - he's just so cool in this

6. RED ROCK WEST

7. PEGGY SUE GOT MARRIED - so offbeat strange in this, Kathleen Turner demanded he be fired. But he makes an asshole character endearing

8. ADAPTATION - double your Cage

9. KISS OF DEATH - the movie is a misfire, but Cage is manically brilliant

10. BIRDY - he had some of his teeth pulled to get the damaged look

11 LEAVING LAS VEGAS

12 THE ROCK - I hate the movie now, but Cage's earnest dork hero is great

13. MATCHSTICK MEN - his most underrated

14 BAD LIEUTENANT: PORT OF CALL - a brilliant return to form

15 KICK-ASS - so funny

I thought the second simply tried too hard. It's as though they were in a "we're making a movie" zone whilst making Crank. Everything after that is is like "we're making whatever the fuck we want". Too slapdash.

post #79442 of 113262

You don't think Port of New Orleans is top 10? Damn.

post #79443 of 113262

Thanks, dude!

 

 

Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call New Orleans and Kick-Ass were Cage's comeback films. They both showcased that his nutty persona is being honed and he's become a bankable version of Gary Busey. I did like Bangkok Dangerous quite a bit. Found that one to be surprisingly good.

 

 

Right now we're watching Warrior, and damn if this movie isn't AMAZING. I feel sort of bad that I didn't get to see it in the theater, because it would have definitely made my top 5. Vanessa is enjoying it a lot, and I figured she would.

 

Tom Hardy  brings the douchebaginess to his role as a man consumed with rage, and Nick Nolte seems to be a shoo-in for an Oscar nomination, because the man is in top acting form here. Count me in as a fan, even though some of the stuff is predictable, and I called it way before hand, like exactly how Tom Hardy "left" the Marines. So basically I'm with Hunter on this one. Funny coincidence that this movie and my other favorite sports movie, North Dallas Forty both star Nick Nolte.

I'm still reeling in from the family film and Nazi combo.

 

I can't imagine what the Netflix people would think seeing customers with shit like this. "Why does this guy have Vice Squad and Bambi out at the same time?"

 

Well, in that case, they're both about homicidal maniacs.

The bachelor party has to be a double feature of The Rookie and Leviathan and the guys get lapdances for the duration, maybe a little more.

Are they at least re-using the Jerry Goldsmith score at the beginning? If not, this fucking remake sounds like a disaster to me.


If there's anything good about this, it's helping me fall asleep.

Holy shit, a Navy SEALS reference.

 

And yes, I'd be more than happy to offer one-man entertainment. I mean, come on, I do Living Colour!

 

 

Sadly it's not as good as the infamous "Blaze of Glory" one.

It's been getting some terrible reviews. One of the rare times i've seen a film get a "F" or 0/10.

 

In fact, i heard the film doesn't even have an ending. They give you a website link at the end to learn more.


I hate the movie for taking my title for a movie about Michael Hutchence.

 

The devil inside, devil inside, every single one of us, the devil's inside...

In honor of his birthday, my all new Top 15 Nic Cage performances:

 

1. RAISING ARIZONA - a hilarious live action cartoon character; also he's surprisingly sweet

2. FACE/OFF - he and Travolta play off each other perfectly

3. WILD AT HEART -  Cage does Elvis

4. VAMPIRE'S KISS - the crown jewel of his method brilliance

5. VALLEY GIRL - he's just so cool in this

6. RED ROCK WEST

7. PEGGY SUE GOT MARRIED - so offbeat strange in this, Kathleen Turner demanded he be fired. But he makes an asshole character endearing

8. ADAPTATION - double your Cage

9. KISS OF DEATH - the movie is a misfire, but Cage is manically brilliant

10. BIRDY - he had some of his teeth pulled to get the damaged look

11 LEAVING LAS VEGAS

12 THE ROCK - I hate the movie now, but Cage's earnest dork hero is great

13. MATCHSTICK MEN - his most underrated

14 BAD LIEUTENANT: PORT OF CALL - a brilliant return to form

15 KICK-ASS - so funny


I haven't seen Valley Girl or Peggy Sue Got Married or Kiss of Death, but this is a spot-on list.

 

Wild at Heart is far and beyond my favorite Cage performance. Jesus, the opening scene of that movie.

Watched the new Sherlock Holmes movie last night (Too lazy to type the interminable title). I liked it. It's on a par with the first one, while being slightly more cerebral. I didn't like that there was no real mystery. Say what you will about the first one, there was actually a compelling mystery at the center and they balanced the action shenanigans very well with the detective stuff. The new one eschews all that in favor of a traditional chase movie/battle of wits.

 

But it works because of the chemistry between Downey Jr and Jared Harris. Overall, I liked it and now Guy Ritchie has two movies I enjoy under his belt. I'll be happy to enjoy a third adventure.

Hunter, we gotta karaoke together one day.  An entire B-movie Thread sing off!  Please invite "Daniel Buckley" his rendition of Queen's "Who wants to live forever" brought tears to my ear drums.

 

Also, love the COBRA t shirt.

First off, congratulations, Rene. Second, I have spent my weekend thus far rewatching two Ahnuld classics- The Terminator and Commando- and the Christopher Walken classic King of New York.
