As much as I love jacking off to Keri Hilson, her presence in Riddick worries me. Same as Batista and Sackhoff (sorry BSGers). Don't like the drug lord from Bad Boys II either...

RIP BRAD WESLEY

 

he only wanted to make missouri classy and they hated him for it

GOODBYE JACKIE TREEHORN!

post #80305 of 117097

 

Oh, Loose Cannons. The one time I saw it I only lasted about a half hour, as I thought it was incredibly off-putting, despite the greatness of the Redskins jacket. Maybe another day I'll give it a second chance but that's not for certain.

That's quite the look for him. It's as of he was playing a coke dealer. I do remember him from the era as my mom used to watch the standard middle of the road show he used to star in on ABC, The Commish. I never thought at the time that when I was an adult he'd star in a bold and risky show on cable and he'd be a big bald badass, but there you go.

That is cause for celebration, as from what I've seen this looks to be something I could love this year like I did with Attack the Block last year. Seeing it on the big screen in front of a big crowd would cause a big... Potato in my Pants! Speaking of that,

Blunt... it still made me laugh, though. It's also understandable as she is nice to look at. It reminds me that one of these years I should see all of the Riddick films.

 

Yes, I did find out a little earlier that not only did Ben Gazzara pass away, but also erotic master Zalman King, best known for The Red Shoe Diaries on Showtime, 9 1/2 Weeks, and Wild Orchid. For some people, that kind of programming is perfect for JACKIN' OFF.

post #80306 of 117097

Yeah, Ben Gazzara dying was sad. As was Zalman King. Blue Sunshine is a great film that he starred in. Very original, and also starred the also taken way too soon, Brion James.

 

Funny personal trivia involving Zalman King. One time while staying at a motel, I was watching Showtime late at night, and I saw David Duchovny show up. I was like "Cool, it's Mulder!" Turned out to be the Red Shoe Diaries. Funniest bit from that episode was seeing ARNOLD VOSLOO as an office guy who sees a woman across in the next building, and they begin to fax each other notes to take their clothes off. It was pretty funny.

 

I need to revisit The Big Lebowski to see Jackie Treehorn in all his glory.

 

Got in some more stuff from Amazon. 2 Wii games. Red Steel, and The House Of The Dead 2 and 3. Eyes Of A Stranger (I know Erix saw this recently), and Batman: Under The Red Hood on Blu-ray. Also rented Contagion on Blu-ray and In The Name Of The King 2 from the Redbox.

 

Right now I'm watching The Woman via Netflix's disc service. Nowhere near as unsettling as I've heard. So far anyway. Still got 30 minutes or so left.

post #80307 of 117097

I was shocked to read about Ben Gazzara's death. On a lighter note, I watched Tucker and Dale vs. Evil last night. I thought it was really good. Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine were great as the two hillbillies.

post #80308 of 117097

Just saw the upcoming Willem Dafoe movie THE HUNTER. Got serious low-rent version of "The American" vibes from this. It's an Australian film with Willem Dafoe as a big game hunter tracking a possibly-nonexistent Tasmanian tiger. But Sam Neill and some of the locals have issues with him. It's essentially the setup for a hitman movie, where he finds his humanity with a mistreated woman and her little moppet children, and starts to question the decency of what he's doing. Whatever. Not a fan. I was hoping for something heavy on the wilderness survival stuff, or even something super artsy, but it's just kind of dull. Worth it if you're a big time Dafoe fan, though, since he doesn't get a lot of lead roles, though the fucker LOOKS completely badass in this.

Big agreement with you there, Matrix. They have a chemistry together that is not really seen all that often anymore. They just bounce off each other with the great lines. Plus I LOVE the first scenes of them from the point of view of the dumbass kids.

 

 

Enjoying a Miller High Life and watching Dolph in In The Name Of The King 2. Dolph is the ONLY thing good in this so far.

post #80310 of 117097

Enjoying a Brooklyn Pennant Ale and watching "Homicide: Life On The Street: Season 3".

post #80311 of 117097

FUCK! I missed one of our quarterly Loose Cannons debates! All I will say is that...um, it's a fascinating failure, and the goddamn Starter jacket.

 

Crushed to hear about Ben Gazzara. Many great roles (and a lot of ones I haven't seen like Bogdanovich's Saint Jack, also need to revisit some Cassavetes stuff), but he'll always be Jackie Treehorn.

 

Saw Chronicle tonight. I don't want to elaborate much on the details of it, as giving a review would spoil a lot of its pros, but in spite of its problems (which there are) it's worth it. What was funny, however, was my friend loudly bellowing over the Fox logo about how he saw some shitty time-travel movie with Dolph Lundgren from the Redbox. He said the movie was dumb, but the dialogue was good.

 

No, not you Rene, quiet down.

 

Anyway, he was talking at a normal volume during this after a bunch of people were "shhh"-ing the whole crowd, but still, he told me about this not during the 112th time I've seen the 21 Jump Street trailer this year but when the movie started. He finally shut up right before I could make a Golden Child joke about the "chosen one" element of the plot.

 

By the way, another benefit to R-rated movies? Less annoying fuckin' kids. And really, the damage control is spiraling into comical territories.

post #80312 of 117097

Too many fucking talkers in the theaters. Even though I've only seen one movie in the theater since October of last year, I'm not missing being annoyed by shitheads who can't stop talking. Happily the Immortals 3D screening we saw was devoid of talkers.

 

 

In The Name Of The King 2 was pretty much a wash. You can really tell Dolph is in it for the paycheck, but if this pays the bills, and helps bankroll more movies for him to direct, then it's all worth it.

 

 

Watching Santa Sangre right now. The Holy Mountain is still my favorite Jodorowsky, but this one is just about even with it. I think the only thing that keeps The Holy Mountain above it is the bizarre yet eye catching visuals.

 

Forgot to mention that I went to Big Lots today and found Paparazzi there for 3 bucks. Never saw it, but I figured for 3 bucks, I should give it a look.

 

post #80313 of 117097

BO LARAMIE POWER.

post #80314 of 117097

Yeah I think the main reason I keep avoiding seeing things in the theater, besides the high cost, is the TALKERS.

 

Its just easier for me to wait the three months, and then see it at home where I can pause the movie to take a piss and not be bothered by fucksticks whom aren't kind enough to shut the fuck up.

 

Just watched disc 1 of season 5 of Robot Chicken earlier and it has some really awesome moments (Tron, G.I.Joe, etc). Love this show.

 

Don't know what to watch now. Maybe Taken.

dude hallenbeck, Those pics are...Awesome!

 

Hey Guys, What is going on with...Bullet To The Head?  Not one...Teaser, for a film arriving in less than...2 1/2 months?  There have been...2 Trailers for G.I. Joe Retaliation which arrives in late june!  Any chance BTTH gets...Delayed?

post #80317 of 117097

I am going to go a little weird here and saw that i liked Underworld Awakening.

 

Loads of action and its rated R. It's not boring like the first Underworld and i had a genuine fun time with this.

The effects are a little iffy though and Kate Beckinsale looks weary in this (Being porked over by Len Wiseman every night might do that to you).

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 They even bring back Scott Speedman's character in this by using a double. Weird.

 

 

post #80318 of 117097

felix, Of course...Len is such, a...Wise...Man, that he...Directed Kate Beckensdale to the alter, so they could get married, in the midst of an...Underworld Awakening!

post #80319 of 117097
Fleed, I think there's a strong possibility BTTH will be delayed. Possibly until after EX2. I just hope it doesn't go DTV.
post #80320 of 117097

Nah I doubt that, but in the face of the whole PG-13 thing maybe they're regiging their marketing strategy to showcase the R!

post #80321 of 117097

Anyone seen the Trailer to this?

 

Raise your hand if you can guess the twist.

post #80322 of 117097

BlueLouBoyle, A delay makes sense to me, since there are only a few pics from Bullet To The Head that have been released.

post #80323 of 117097

I watched The Expendables last night, then started Road House in honor of Ben Gazzara before I got sleepy.

The Pancreatic cancer strikes again!!  Man, it took Swayze, Julius Carry (Sho-Nuff) and Steve James, to name just three. At least Gazzara made it into his 80s, we'll miss you.

 

Maybe Inchon will get a re-release.

Shame.  Willem Dafoe is a treasure, it's disappointing to hear the film-makers didn't back him up.

I haven't seen it yet, but I'm sure i will not be able to hate the film for this very reason.

It had better not go DTV!!  I want some antipation to be built up, so an autumn (fall) release would work if they do that.

 

post #80325 of 117097

I'm not at a point yet where I believe BULLET TO THE HEAD will be delayed. The Warner Bros. site still has it listed for 4/13 along with their other films due out in the coming months. If there's no trailer by Valentine's Day, then I'll officially change my outlook to "fishy."

 

Caught THE GREY. Now that was a movie. Neeson was his usual sure-handed self. Feel like I'm at a point where I take him for granted, which is a shame because he truly has the sort of commanding presence that you don't see a lot of anymore.

 

Not to get too heavy here, but the movie made me think about death in a way that few others ever have. Not really in a depressing way and not about what happens after you die, more what happens during. Will it be quiet? Will it be violent? Will I have time to make peace with it or will I only have a minute to try and come to terms?

 

THE GREY also convinced me that wolves are less scary than water.

I'm starting to feel the same way about going to the theater. Almost every week for the past several years, I'd be going to the theater, and now, I'm not missing it all that much. Especially considering there's not a lot of movies that are there right now screaming "WATCH ME!" Except for The Grey that is. I might try to make it to that one. The Drive In near me is showing The Grey and Haywire, but it's not paved, and it's been raining.

Bob Plissken has been making a case for the Underworld franchise to me over on facebook, and I may eventually check out the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th one eventually. The first one was just so terrible that I didn't want to see the rest.

I got really sleepy earlier than normal last night. I can usually stay up until all odd hours, I'm talking early morning hours on the weekends, but not last night.

 

 

 

I have to say, Santa Sangre pretty much became my favorite Jodorowsky film. The Holy Mountain still has the better visuals, but Santa Sangre is an overall better film.

 

 

 

Watching Contagion right now.  Soderbergh continues to be a top notch filmmaker. Very paranoid film, very 70's.

post #80327 of 117097

Paparazzi surprised me in a big way when I originally watched it. It had as much entertainment as stupidity.

 

Van Damme looks bored in his picture.

post #80328 of 117097

Dolph looks awesome in his picture. That movie can't be released fast enough. That's going to be a definite blind buy for me. If it is released DTV that is.

 

After seeing that Gone trailer felix posted, it just further cements the fact that I really don't like Seyfried. She's a terrible actress.

 

 

Contagion was well worth the dollar and change I spent for renting the Blu-ray from the Redbox. Shark Night was there as well, so I might rent that later tonight after I get through some of the movies I've got sitting here.

 

Watching The Visitor. No, it's not the short lived FOX tv series from 1997. It's a movie from 1978 that was made by OVIDIO G. ASSONITIS. He of PIRANHA II: THE SPAWNING, and Beyond The Door. It's got Lance Henriksen, Franco Nero, SAM PECKINPAH, John Huston as the titular character, and many others. Never seen it before, but but that trailer I posted the other day made me want to check it out. Plus Code Red is well known for putting out obscure movies that don't sell well, thus the owner only presses a certain amount, and has stated on more than one occasion that once it's gone, it's gone. Not the Amanda Seyfried Gone. Not Gone Baby Gone. Just, gone.

Well, it is The Champagne of Beers... but not one of my favorites. Still, at least it's better than water-flavored beer like Natural Light.

 

It's unfortunate that all reliable sources say that sequel is pretty poor; I mean, even the people who are like me and thought the first wasn't awful at all, say the second is crap.

Oh, your friend was THAT GUY? Not THE MAIN GUY, but rather one of those ignorant types? That's rather unfortunate, not to mention embarrassing. I'll just imagine you verbally hulking out and berating him for his cluelessness once you left the auditorium, even if that didn't take place.

 

Still, I am surprised that Chronicle looks better than all the ads I've seen for it. The concept is interesting but the lead characters came across as douches, at least from the advertisements. Maybe I will check it out on the big screen after all. While I haven't gone out to see too many films that way in the past 6 months or so, I've been lucky in that it's been a long while since I've come across loudmouths/idiots while in an auditorium.

 

Anyhow, I shouldn't have been too worried about Chronicle, given that it was written by Max Landis. Besides having an awesome dad, from listening to a podcast with him on it a few months ago, he made it clear he wasn't a traditional writer who wrote stories with happy endings.

 

I'll be back late tonight with my customary mentionings of if there were any celebrities at the UFC pay per view. This time I'll be watching it on the big screen in 3D, so I'll also have to say how that experience was.

I usually end up going on Mondays, when it is mostly quiet.  Still, the things that RUIN the 'Cinema Experience' for me include: Popcorn, Talkers, Phone Ad-dicks, uncomfortable seats and incompetent staff.

 

When the film really demands it, I go the extra distance to a Picturehouse cinema in Cambridge.  This is an 'Upper class' cinema that doesn't really charge anymore then a normal theatre, but the films they show sttract only film enthusiasts.  So they don't feel the need to be eating throughout the film, don't pull out their phone and keep quiet.  Add to that, the place is well furnished and I really enjoy going there.

For me, any weaknesses she has as an actress are not noticeabale.  I recently pledged i'll go see any of her films.  That is going to be put to the test when I found out she is in a film with Katherine fucking Heigl!!!!  I'm hoping for a Paltrow-esque trailer death.

How did you like when Neeson yells CUT THAT SHIT OUT!?

post #80332 of 117097

Finished up Steve Austin and Michael Jai White in TACTICAL FORCE. Glad I waited for cable on this bung. Appallingly bad. I get that Austin pretty much does any movie thrown his way but why Jai White signed up for this I'll never know. Not just crap fake muzzle-flash action all over the place, but an abundance of painfully rendered humor from start to finish.

 

Gonna take a lot of Glade Plugins to get the stink of this one to waft away.

That's a tough one. Would probably stick with THE EDGE but it's close. Both are anchored by solid leads. I'll give THE EDGE the, uh, advantage because on top of the survival aspect I enjoy the chess game going on between Hopkins and Baldwin.

 

THE GREY is way better than BUSHWHACKED though.

I don't understand the very low rating on IMDB. Sure the editing was butchered by the producers and some of it is week but it was certainly an ambitious project.



Thanks, I'll give both of 'em a look.

 

I watched the last half or so of Gamer today. Still a crazy, violent, fun flick.

post #80335 of 117097

GAMER was surprisingly short though. It clocked less than 80 mins in the version i saw.

 

The Killing Machine- DEATH BY PITCHFORK!

 

Vern hated TACTICAL FORCE as well, Molt.  And i've come to trust his judgement.

 

Scott Adkins did a Q&A on the Van Damme where he answers questions on UNIVERSOL SOLDIER AND TE2.

 

Here it is

 

Quote:
"Recuperation is going very well. I tore my ACL back in March 2011 so it's been difficult to pull of some of the more athletic kicks over the past few months. It's a tough injury to come back from but I'm confident I'll be back to my best in a few more months."

In relation to the previous film "Assassination Games", Steven Seagal was originally in contention for that film, and I wonder whether Mr Adkins has met Steven Seagal and / or what opinion he has of his films and martial arts credentials.

"I've never met Seagal but I was always a big fan of his earlier work. Seagal had something original (Aikido) that people hadn't seen before and I loved the brutality of his fight sequences. And of course he was very believable with a gun. Seagal is the real deal, he was teaching Japanese martial arts in Japan so he definitely knew what he was doing."

Do you get any good fight scenes in The Expendables 2?

I know. I enjoyed the first In The Name Of The King when I got the Blu-ray last summer, but this one was just BAD. The store I get Pabst from was out of it (it's the only place that carries Pabst) so I went with The Champagne Of Beers since it's cheap, and a step up from Natural Light, which is actually my future Father In Law's beer of choice!

 

Looking forward to reading your UFC musings!

Gamer is really worth it. It's the movie that made me actually like Butler. I wasn't that crazy about him previously. Not even from 300.

 

 

We were going to check out The Sitter tonight at the dollar theater, but it looks like we're staying in, as the weather is changing, there's a hail warning. I went to return the movies to the Redbox and get Shark Night, but it wasn't there. Checked my iPhone app, and someone returned it, but I'm not going to get it until later tonight, since I've got so many movies I need to see. The Visitor wasn't all that great either. Pretty boring for the most part, but it does have a really "that's gotta hurt!" stunt sequence involving a guy on a motorcycle crashing head on into a car and bouncing off it. It's as painful looking as the Selleck stunt double from An Innocent Man.

 

Went by the post office to check my mailbox and this came in the mail.

Yes, that is an authentic VHS tape. I've been following this horror movie since I saw the cool looking throwback trailer last summer. Almost got the dvd from Amazon, but decided to wait, since the official website for the film was going to have a limited edition big box vhs package that also would contain the dvd. That Sorority ad was a nice surprise. Vanessa's word on seeing my childlike happiness when showing it to her was "Sucker". I don't care! This is going to be proudly displayed in my game room! Whether the movie ends up being good or not is inconsequential.

Tonite I'm watching ROAD HOUSE and SAINT JACK.

 

Despite my vow to see more movies in the theatre, like Rene, I haven't seen HAYWIRED or THE GREY. This week, I swear.

 

Here's a question for you guys: are you gonna see THE PHANTOM MENNACE? It does feature thread legend Liam Neeson! I have a love/hate relationship with the movie, the parts that work are really fun. And the Darth Maul duel is up there with my fave STAR WARS moments. So, for me, despite the horror that will be 3-D Jar-Jar, I think I'm there.

 

That re-cut RAISING CAIN I posted was pretty cool. Lithgow's performance(s) has made a movie I hated at the time into something of a favorite.

Vern's updated version of SEAGALOGY: THE ASS KICKING FILMS OF STEVEN SEAGAL will be out on April 3rd.

http://www.amazon.com/Seagalogy-Ass-Kicking-Steven-Seagal-Updated/dp/0857687220/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1328399555&sr=1-1

It will go up fine with my previous copy of Seagalogy. That was a fun read when I got it in 2008.

post #80340 of 117097

I wonder what new material will be in there? Probably Steven Seagal: Lawman and the films up to BORN TO RAISE HELL.

post #80341 of 117097

He'll probably cover Machete as well. I hope that one gets a lot of coverage, as it's the first time Seagal has 1. played a villain 2. been a supporting character 3. died in a film.

Not to mention being his return to cinema screens and probably having the biggest director he's ever worked with.

You're forgetting Executive Decision.

 

And you shouldn't.

 

It's a fine film.

I love to take Seagalogy off the shelf now and then and pick a random film/chapter to revisit. I want the new stuff but I'm not sure I wanna stump up for the entire book again.... Ah who am I kidding.

post #80345 of 117097

GAH! I shouldn't have forgotten that! Erix with the save! Thanks, man.

 

Although, we could say that Machete let him die the way he wanted to.

 

 

Watching a terrible episode of Miami Vice called "Miracle Man". It's got this silly little guy running around and fucking up Tubbs and Switek's undercover operation. After this one is done, I've got 2 more episodes, then the series finale. This episode is the last one on this disc, so I'm going to finish it, then watch The Sleeper. I'll save the last disc for later.

I was thinking that too, but the Amazon link felix provided is not that much. It's enough for me to grab the expanded copy.

I like the idea behind killing him off, but really how much better would a Steven Seagal/Kurt Russell buddy film have been?

Besides, we never see him die!

 

post #80348 of 117097

Well, according to Amazon its listed at 512 pages. The previous version was listed at 395 pages.

 

New films that probably be covered

 

Machete

A Dangerous Man

Born To Raise Hell

Kill Switch

Against The Dark

Ruslan

The Keeper

 

post #80349 of 117097

Yeah it'll probably be worth it, plus we get a snazzy new cover!

post #80350 of 117097

I keep forgetting that Born To Raise Hell is his most recent DTV film. With Machete being his last film overall. Kind of sad that there hasn't been a huge glut (gut?) of Seagal films like there were a few years ago. Wasn't there a year where he had about 4 or 5 movies that came out?

 

 

Watching The Sleeper. The movie is supposed to be set in 1981, and despite the budget limitations, it has the look for the most part. Movie doesn't waste it's time either. There's been some pretty gory kills so far. The first one is pretty shocking. It involves a hammer, and a girl's face. Then there's no face. The music helps the film a lot. It's straight up early 80's synth. Digging the movie.
