Buried in a SIN CITY 2 story, Deadline claims Robert Rodriguez is "chasing" Mel Gibson for MACHETE 2:

Re: THE REUBEN BLADES.  I want one.  But I'm a pescetarian now.  This may be the toughest challenge I shall I ever face.

Re: SIN CITY 2 and LOOPER.  Oh hell yeah, I'm in.  Really liked BRICK.  Really love SIN CITY.

Re: JENNY WRIGHT.  That video.  While it seemed something was amiss with her that day, I hope she's okay in

her present environments.  That video mentions her Facebook page and I gave it a "like" a little earlier.  Facebook, it

seems, is a great way to let artists know you enjoy their work and wish them all the best.  If you're a fan out there, maybe

you'll consider doing it too.  Maybe I'm overly emo tonight...  But sometimes it's just good to know someone out there cares.  

 

And I just got home from the midnight preview show of CABIN IN THE WOODS.  Oh, yeah.  A Must See.  Go.  Go now.

Anybody else love FOUR BROTHERS? Funny, I don't recall it clicking with me before, but played like gangbusters for me tonite. Easily John Singleton's best directed film. Dug the vintage R&B soundtrack, the riff on THE SONS OF KATIE ELDER, and the chemistry between Wahlberg, Tyrese Gibson, Andre 3000, and Hedlund. Only plot thread I didn't like was Josh Charles' dirty cop.

post #82454 of 114159

Hey Guys, I am glad that Sin City: A Dame To Kill For will...Finally Begin!  I suppose it could be a...2013 release, but it has taken...so long, that it could be a...2014 release or later.

post #82455 of 114159

Sorry fleed. My interest in Sin City (And other Frank Miller) stuff has long cooled.

 

I have to admit i kinda enjoyed THE SPIRIT though.

 

ScarJo, Stana Katic, Eva Mendes, Sarah Paulson and Jaimie King. Too much eye candy here.

post #82456 of 114159

Red Rock West. The Last Seduction and Rounders are terrific neo-noirs all by the same man, John Dahl.

post #82457 of 114159

Caught LOCKOUT. Sorry to say but it's a dud. No sizzle all fizzle.

post #82458 of 114159

Caught my second viewing of Statham's "Safe" last night. Glad it still stuck with me - it delivers, and I've spoken to a lot of non-action fans who were also kind of over-the-moon for it. It's a b-movie that treats it's ideas, relationships and characters with straight-faced respect - none of it is a put-on, or ironic, or anything like that. And it's not gratuitous, but confidently rated R.

 

Things I love about the film:

-Mark Mothersbaugh's score sounds like David Shire doing the James Bond theme.

-Statham really beats the shit out of a LOT of guys in it.

-There are a lot of double crosses, alliances, and infighting - it's the crooked mayor (Chris Sarandon), the Chinese mafia (James Hong), the corrupt cops (Robert John Burke) and the Russians (big evil fat dude), and they ALL have awesome, interesting, kickass sidekicks. You really get to know these scumbags, they're not just target practice.

-Statham is serious, but he gets to have a LOT of awesome one-liners. My favorite?

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

He's a former sanitation worker. He puts a gun to the bad guy's head, and he's surprised to see him. "The garbage collector?" he laughs.

"You've got it wrong. I didn't collect garbage. I DISPOSED OF IT." BLAM BLAM.

 

The plot's pretty well-worn, and I still think they cheap out a little at the end, but at that point, I think you have to be very pleased by the amount of asskicking you've gotten so far. This is the old-school style of action film, where our hero is invincible, but you're still invested on if he survives, and how he pulls it all together, given that he's trying to play all sides against each other.

 

More importantly, though, I got to speak to BOAZ YAKIN.

Very cool dude. Much younger than I expected - we were talking, and he said he wrote The Punisher when he was 22. Still seemed bitter that he wrote the skull-on-his-shirt into the script and they shitcanned it because it was "too comic booky." He acknowledged "Safe" isn't trying to reinvent the wheel, but he thinks Statham is a modern day Bronson, and he wanted to make the type of action film he used to watch in the nineties. Much success, Mr. Yakin. 

post #82459 of 114159

Hope Robert John Burke gets a nice chance to chew scenery. Guy always brings it when he shows up in this or that TV show. He pops up every now and then in films but not enough. Quit holding ROBOCOP 3 over his head, Hollywood.

post #82460 of 114159

My gang's doing the midnight of CABIN IN THE WOODS, but first I got either Sheen in TERMINAL VELOCITY or Sonny Chiba in STREET FIGHTER.

Boy, did you hit the nail on the head with that one.

 

Now, I am in the mood to fight a grizzly bear with my bare hands, or steal a beehive with the bees still in it. That's because of what I saw after Lockout, but first things first...

 

I am glad at least Molti agrees with me there. I was worried that I was going to be in the minority. If you must see the film, wait until DVD/Blu-Ray, where at least the editing isn't so incoherent (due to their insistence that it be PG-13 instead of R; that really makes the action stuff hard to follow) and you can use the subtitles, as I swear I could only understand about 20% (if that) of the dialogue coming out of one character's mouth due to his heavy accent.

 

But, even with the unrated cut I don't know if the movie would be all that great. The witty stuff is only funny once in awhile, and the story is REALLY stupid and ridiculous, in a bad way. Some insulting your intelligence shit and boy, the final 10 to 15 minutes... besides being really incoherent-it took me awhile to figure out what was going on-it is just not satisfying at all. The story is just not there; not too much of it is memorable. It's just "blah", pretty much. Sure, some moments were fine but I was expecting a lot more. This is no Escape From New York, that's for Goddamn sure.

 

After that, I left disappointed but stayed in the cineplex, played some arcade games, then went into another auditorium, where I saw The Raid: Redemption.

 

HO-LEE FUCK

 

I should just let that be my take on the film, but I want to make clear that this did live up to the hype, and then some. It really is that awesome and it'll take an amazing film to move Raid off of the top of the list for my movie of the year. I know I'll see it at least one more time on the big screen. I need to see some sequences again.

 

I don't think I can possibly recommend something more; please don't watch Lockout and if you're able to, watch The Raid: Redemption.

post #82463 of 114159

Just got my updated edition of Vern's Seagalogy.

 

Finished reading the new section regarding Kill Switch. Apparently there was a Workprint Cut that fixed some of the problems of the film and it had a working title of "A Higher Form Of Learning".

 

Some of the differences

 

1) More coherent editing

2) Issac Hayes has a full dialogue scene with Seagal (eating Catfish)

3)

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

A better explained ending.

In the workprint edition, Seagal's character goes back to Russia to visit a woman he had a child with.

 

 

 

 

post #82464 of 114159

Why would anyone want the ending to KILL SWITCH to be more coherent? The only memorable aspect to the film was the "HUH?" ending. Take that away and it's just routine bad.

Yeah, LOCKOUT is gonna need way more than unedited headshots and some extra blood splatter to be an effective action film. That won't fix the weak villains, dodgy effects, and a complete lack of tension.

Fat Elvis, I would definitely go with Sonny Chiba's Street Fighter!  Did you ever see Chiba's Protoge...Etsuko "Sue" Shihomi in Sister Street Fighter?  It is...Awesome!

Hey Guys.

post #82468 of 114159

I'm watching TERMINAL VELOCITY. Charlie is playing a guy named 'Ditch'. And Nastassja Kinski just called him a walking penis. Winning!

 

Oh, and Melvin Van Peebles is in this.

post #82469 of 114159

Oh yeah, Terminal Velocity is the goods.

 

Put up a piece on the main page about this "Rodriguez wants Melvin in Machete Kills" news. I actually hope that he convinces him to do it.

post #82470 of 114159

I still consider the Charlie Sheen/Falling Car scene at the end, one of the spectacular stunts ever.

 

Watching BATTLESHIP in a few hours. Also LOCKOUT and CABIN are being released here next week!

post #82471 of 114159
I'm reading up up on the true story behind Michael Bay's upcoming Pain & Gain. Surprised to learn that
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Marky Mark is actually THE MAIN GUY and Ed Harris is the hero of the film!
post #82472 of 114159

Gonna wait on Lockout then. Thanks to all for the heads up. Sorry Guy. Still can't wait to see the unrated dvd in 3 months tops! Think I'll have a Guy-a-thon soon with Ravenous, L.A. Confidential, and The Proposition to make up for it.

 

Might get up early and go get me some The Raid: Redemption through the most illegal of means.

 

Got Scott Pilgrim on blu for 7.99, love it and it's got some action in there.

You're right on the dot, dude.  Been loving those Fast movies as of late, but they're gonna be fine without The Stath and nothing compares to Mad Mel.

post #82474 of 114159

We're all head over heels over The Raid, but if you've already seen it, then GET YOUR ASS TO Cabin in the Woods. Not gonna say a thing more about it. Best horror movie since Reagan was in office.

 

Looks like I'll be waiting for Lockout to hit the Redbox for sure.

post #82475 of 114159
I'm still keen for Lockout.

Thanks to Expendables Premiere.

Really hard to keep my excitement down for this film.
post #82476 of 114159

Awesome pictures, dude. I smell an article brewing with credit given to you for the heads up of course!

 

We were going to do a double feature of The Raid and Lockout tonight, but we decided to hold off until tomorrow, and tonight caught Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance in the dollar theater. Aside from some really shitty shaky cam, I had a good time with the film, and it's certainly better than the first one. My favorite scene was when Cage and the girl have a sleazy fight promoter cornered and Cage starts with the MEGA ACTING and says "SCRAPING AT THE DOOR!!!!!!" several times. I was literally laughing out loud at that. Vanessa didn't take to the film like I did, turning several times to tell me it was boring. I'm hoping that she will have a good time tomorrow with The Raid and Lockout. Unless we decide to check out 21 Jump Street which Tyler Foster, Hunter, and Nooj are adamant I see ASAP.

 

Saw The Day Of The Jackal a little while ago via Netflix's disc service. Slow moving, but great thriller with Michael Lonsdale as the lead, and Edward Fox as the titular character.

 

Right now I'm revisiting Aliens (the theatrical cut) since I read the novelization earlier this week.

post #82477 of 114159

DAMMIT, RENE.

 

Vanessa was right about Ghost Rider 2!  

 

Snoooooooooore.

 

Save Lock-Out for blu-ray and see 21 Jump Street!

post #82478 of 114159

There was a trailer for 21 Jump Street that had us laughing, and they played The Wrath Of The Titans one TWICE IN A ROW. I don't think I've ever seen a trailer played twice before the same film before.

 

Either way, I dug Ghost Rider 2. No regrets spending $4.50 for the both of us on it.

 

I will get to see it Nooj. Don't worry. The Cabin In The Woods is another I really want to see, but that may have to wait until possibly next week.

post #82479 of 114159

Battleship is 2hrs 10mins of my life i want back.

 

Not as bad as Michael Bay's Transformers. But still full of dumb shit. Your time is better spent on other stuff, folks.

 

Still amped for Lockout next week.

I'm willing to give this film a chance.  Bay's going to have to really deliver a winner to make up for the crappy Tranformers series.  Such wasted potential, I can't believe they are putting him in charge of the new direction of the series.

Still a MONTH to go before The Raid hits UK theatres (there was some free screenings this week I missed out on. Fook!).

 

However, I will be watching Cabin in the Woods and Battleship this week.  Looking forward to Cabin, but I find there is a real big gap in opinions on the film.  Some people say it's a truly classic horror film (a very bold statement) and other who say it's merely OK.  I am not lowering my expectations, I expect to have my ass kicked.

 

Battleship has been getting slammed by critics here (Felix's take doesn't give me any hope, either).  While that is no surprise, some of the comments make me angry.  The film had military support and therefore had approval of the film's script.  Without going into my usual 'Patriotic Garbage' rants, this really kills any potential the film has of having 'real' characters.  The film becomes pure spectacle and I really dislike how studios are happy to produce stuff that takes no risks whatsoever with formula.  I guess that is inevitable with the money thrown at these projects.

Yeah.  For all issues the final film may have, I don't have it in me to dislike someting that assembles a dreamcast. Like the rest of us, I'll be really disappointed if the film has the same filming style as the first.  That is easily cut down into a PG13 or insert added to bump up to R level violence.

Same here.  It's not perfect, but i found plenty to appreciate.

 

post #82481 of 114159

felix, If Battleship is...Better than The Transformers films of...The Master Of Bayhem, than it must be a...better film than you are saying.  The Transformers is a...Titanic Tussle of...Three films featuring Alien Super Robots, and is...All Kinds Of Awesome!  Now more importantly which Brooklyn Decker film will win top spot in the box office war on May 18th?  Will it be...Battleship or...What To Expect When you are Expecting?  I expect...Battleship to win Box Office Gold, with WTEWYE to get a lower...Birth!

 

HunterTarantino, I did...like The Raid.  I could never be...Head over Heels about any film, since I never wear...Heels!  Lockout...Tops, The Raid any day of the week.

post #82482 of 114159

Rene (Mr.Eko), I agree with you.  Ghost Rider 2 includes the...Spirited Vengeance I wanted to see, once...CAGEy Nic, joined the tag team of...Neveldine/Taylor!  On a different note, weren't you supposed to get...Married in March?  Did it happen?  If it did, I am sorry to have missed the mention of such a...Glorious day!

post #82483 of 114159

Ghost Rider 2 wasn't that bad. I can safely say that Battleship was my first dissapointing movie of 2012 though.

 

That TE2 pic sure raises my hopes a little for the film. Hopefully we'll get something memorable in the end.

 

New GET THE GRINGO Trailer.

 

On VOD on May 1st.

TWICE I had the Friends With Benefits trailer play twice in a row before films! I wanted to murder someone.

 

The recommendations for 21 Jump Street are spot on, it'a a gem. I was meant to be seeing Cabin In The Woods tomorrow but it's been changed to Tuesday, just another 48 hours to avoid everything to do with it!

 

post #82485 of 114159

Good friends, I finally had the pleasure of watching "THE HUNTED" (aka William Friedkin's "FIRST BLOOD").

 

While Benicio is no Stallone, it was a fantastically made movie.  Can't believe it took me this long to get around to it.  The knife fights (Escrima style I believe) were fantastic and brutal.  One interesting thing about Tommy Lee Jones' "LT"...this has got to mark the umpteenth time TLJ has played the same character.

 

THE FUGITIVE: chasing down a dangerous man

US MARSHALS:  chasing down a dangerous man

THE HUNTED: chasing down a dangerous man

NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN: chasing down a dangerous man

 

TLJ is like a modern day Lee Van Cleef!

post #82486 of 114159

Favorite bit in THE HUNTED is when TLJ first heads off into the forest after Del Torro and busts out with "If I'm not back in 2 days it's cuz I'm dead."

 

Watched a semi-decent HK flick, FIRE OF CONSCIENCE. Centers on 2 cops investigating a hooker's death which leads to all sorts of bigger conspiracies. Far from perfect, plot is sorta constrived. But it has more than a few jarring moments of violence that really left an impression. Features a truly inventive shootout that takes place inside a moving car.

Yeah, that's pretty much the coolest thing of all time for me.  If I'm honest, I'll admit I was always just a big Arnie/Sly fan.  So those two alone make this the greatest thing ever.  But with Willis in there as well?  The best thing ever.  Note how Arnold is wearing a jacket like the one he stole in The Terminator.

Glad you dug THE HUNTED.  Great film.  Also, don't forget:

 

MEN IN BLACK series: chasing down dangerous aliens

THE THREE BURIALS OF MELQUAIDES ESTRADA: chasing down a border patrolman

and MAN OF THE HOUSE: chasing down an easy paycheck.

duke fleed, we were supposed to be married in March, but several things got in the way, and we had to postpone it until June 8th. The day Prometheus opens. That is when I will have my glorious day! Thank you for remembering it.

 

 

Another thing I forgot to mention I liked about Ghost Rider 2 was the fact that there are SHOTGUNS WITH GRENADE LAUNCHERS ATTACHED TO THEM. They only appear in one scene, but I really wished that they had appeared throughout the film.

Put me in the CABIN IN THE WOODS is awesome camp. Best Horror movie since DRAG ME TO HELL.

Not to mention, that Giles from Buffy The Vampire Slayer has a cameo as a Cardinal priest.

Yet another thing I forgot to mention. It was cool seeing Christopher Lambert back on the big screen. Even though he was tattooed up and bald, you can't mistake his trademark voice. Too bad he wasn't able to slip in his "HEH HEH HEH!" laugh.

post #82495 of 114159

so... THE RAID.

thought it was pretty "eh". Don't really get the hype.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

lol just kidding that shit  was fuckin craaaaazyyy

It's almost literally NON-STOP INTENSE VIOLENCE. Everyone in the building is either a cop, a machete-wielding psycho hopped up on drugs or some kind of martial arts marathon runner. They all keep going and going and punching and kicking and stabbing and shooting. The upcoming Judge Dredd movie named DREDD (it has almost the exact same premise) is pretty much fucked!

 

p.s. I hope Malaysian Al Leong comes back for the sequel.

post #82496 of 114159

wadew1, Except that Dredd should be a...Better action film!  I think there will be more...Fun, in...Mega City 1, with  Judge Dredd, and his big...Gun, dealing justice to lawbreakers, whilist delivering a few...Haymakers!  Also...Judge Anderson is my...Favorite Female Judge in 2000 AD!  I first was introduced to the world of Judge Dredd with a pull out in...ZZap 64 a...Commodore 64 gaming magazine from the UK

post #82497 of 114159

I think DREDD is going to have a tough time topping THE RAID in the action department...fleed.

I see no Malaysian martial artists in the imdb cast list.

post #82498 of 114159

wadew1, I have to say, The Raid, is no...Ong Bak 2 or 3!  Sure, there was alot of shooting and fighting in The Raid, but no one stood out.  The Hero Iko Uwais, was simply not...IKOnic Enough!  He even needed his brothers help in one of the fights.  Tony delivers some Bone...JAArring kicks and punches in the...ONG BAKtacular trilogy of...Martial Artistry!  Each of the...3 Ong Bak films made my...Top 10, in the year they arrived in the US.  The Raid, is a film I will definitely...Not See Again!  I am passing up...future sequels, as well as the hollywood remake.  Dredd on the other hand has...Karl delivering some...Urban Justice, in Mega City One!  I am...Thrilled that Judge Anderson is played by the lovely...Olivia Thirlby!  It is good that Rob Schneider is...Not in this new Judge Dredd film!

post #82499 of 114159

I thought THE RAID was better than the first ONG BAK and the crappy sequels. I liked the hand to hand fights more and it had more of a variety when it came to the action. The only thing ONG BAK has that THE RAID needed was a wisecracking guy named DIRTY BALLS.

 

Also saw CABIN IN THE WOODS.

I thought it was a pretty fun/clever horror movie send-up for the most part. The crazy third act is the best part.

post #82500 of 114159

Is the twist as great as surprising as everyone says it is? I'll be watching CABIN next week,
