post #90151 of 115350

The thing I dig about Roger Moore's first two Bond movies --LIVE AND LET DIE + THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN- is that he's such an unrepentant asshole. Seriously, in GOLDEN GUT he can barely contain his contempt for colleague/Bond girl  Britt Eckland, and in LIVE AND LET DIE, it's the whole Black population of Harlem. Hilarious. SPY and MOONRAKER kind of soften his asshole-ness to the detriment of the series.

The Fernando Di Leo Collection is $12.99 on Amazon right now. The Blu-ray version! FEMI BENUSSI in HD! Jack Palance, Henry Silva, and Woody Strode in HD!

post #90153 of 115350
In Australia, Bullet to the Head, The Last Stand and Parker are coming out sequentially in February. The month of my birth. Beyond that I don't really know. Iron Man 3, Superman and Pacific Rim are certainties. Small Apartments too.

Cool list, Duke. I compiled mine based on whether or not I'd follow the character into other mediums, like I'm not much of a comic guy, the only comics I buy are ones I know will be ultra-violent or ones featuring characters I really love.

So I took the kid for a bit and walked around the bedroom and den carrying her and talking to her about Lucio Fulci movies. She was quite content to listen to her Father ramble on about zombies fighting sharks, houses by the cemetery, David Warbeck shooting zombies in a hospital, Jennifer O'Neil as The Psychic. Then of course I started talking about JEAN VILAIN vs. BARNEY ROSS.

Hah, I like Fulci's flicks, too, well, some of them. Demonia, Aenigma and Contraband weren't so hot.

The disco club scene in Contraband is one of the coolest things I've ever seen. If only there was a good quality clip of it up on youtube. It's the best scene in the whole movie.

I don't even remember! All I remember is it was pretty gory when people got shot but it seemed like they kept using the same gore effect over and over.

post #90159 of 115350

MOONRAKER is too silly. The first third is classic Bond, but then inexplicably Bond dresses like Eastwood in a spaghetti Western and the theme from THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN plays. And somehow once in space everybody has laser guns. And in the movie's biggest pulled punch the movie doesn't kill off Jaws and his girlfriend, even though the space station they're trapped in explodes. I do think Drax was a great villain, with this delicious line:

 

"Look after Mr. Bond. See that some harm comes to him."

 

Also Lois Chiles' Holly Goodhead is a nice Bond girl. Smart and a capable ally.

 

A watchable, fun Bond movie, i still had a blast, but bottom 5 for me.

 

(I'm kind of shocked I bumped it so high on my rankings after last viewing. I must have really been in right mood for it. And expectations were low.)

post #90160 of 115350

Also, props for this bit of nastiness: Drax having a woman who betrayed him by helping Bond chased through the woods and ripped apart by dogs. More ruthless than the usual shark tank kill.

post #90161 of 115350

Michael Lonsdale certainly elevates the film by being a damn good Bond villain. I have much love for Moonraker. It's certainly one I've come to love more and more over the years.

 

 

Saw Basket Case 3 earlier this evening. Not bad. Basket monster Belial and his girlfriend have a large brood (12) little creatures. It's offbeat, but not as crazy as the other 2. It does feature Belial in a huge makeshift powerloader outfit!

 

 

Watched Blood Games earlier on Netflix Instant. Mostly because Perfect had talked about it being not bad, and also featuring BUCK FLOWER! It wasn't that bad. Pretty standard women on the warpath because scummy rednecks abuse them. It's worth a look on Instant.

 

Also, here's a still I took of Buck Flower in the movie.

 

700

 

 

Yes, that is a cap that says THE CHECK IS IN THE MAIL, just like Perfect had said when he saw the movie. I want a cap like that.

 

 

Right now I'm revisiting Chained Heat. A women in prison film with John Vernon, Henry Silva (as a guy named LESTER), Linda Blair, and Sybil Danning. Lots of pretty girls on display in the film. Haven't seen it since I rented the tape long ago. Got this in a triple feature with 2 other movies called RED HEAT (as far as I know, no relation to the Arnold/Belushi masterpiece), and JUNGLE WARRIORS. Will report back on those soon.

post #90162 of 115350

Just saw Alex Cross.

 

The biggest problem is that Tyler Perry just has no edge as Alex Cross. It certainly doesn't help that our first scene of him is of Perry heaving up and down in a totally unconvincing chase scene. He's totally miscast here. Perry gets a few scenes where he tries to explain his smarts or tells an emotional backstory. Doesn't quite work. He's no Morgan Freeman, Hugh Laurie or Idris Elba. Thats for sure.

 

It's a failure. But an interesting failure. Matthew Fox goes into total eye twitching "JACKFACE" mode here. He's build up some impressive muscle in preperation for his role. There's also a bunch of unintentionally hilarious scenes here (Including a weird CGI explosion). Jean Reno has a bit cameo here as well. Rachel Nichols also shows up in the first third of the film.

 

"I'VE SEEN HIS FACE!"

No love for the film's lead, Scott Adkins.  That's a shame.

NOW THE AWARD FOR BEST STILL EVER GOES TO... DOLPHIN MAORI STYLE SUCKERPUNCH WITH A MACHETE!

 

 

Cool picture.

 

A pleasant surprise that comes from nowhere is the best kind; it would be great if Battle of the Damned turns out to be one of them.  There's been a lot of co-starring roles for Dolph lately, Two Worlds was the last one, we need a good one.

 

Come to think of it, I still haven't seen One in the Chamber, Two Worlds and Stash House.  Not looking forward to watching the latter two.

Isn't there flashes of of a woman dancing to reveal she has a considerable shrubbery down under?  

 

That wouldn't last long if someone noticed.

There actually is a really poor quality "Some put a video camera up to the tv to record" version of the disco scene on Youtube, but yeah, "shrubbery" is on display. I'm surprised its been on there for a while. I'm guessing it's because it's of such poor quality.

 

 

Been watching Louie: Season 1 since I got the dvd/Blu-ray combo in the mail. So friggin' hilarious. Ricky Gervais and Stephen Root are the stand out guests. As is Tom Noonan in his brief cameo. I still find myself laughing so much at the stuff that Ricky Gervais says. "You've got big ugly gingeritis!" "You've got cancer in your scrotum. In fact, you don't have testicles. Just two large tumors." "You're just a mix of organs in a ginger sack."

post #90165 of 115350

Got four friends to watch Corndog Man last night on vhs and they all really enjoyed it.

 

For the record Contraband is awesome!

 

Watched Nightmare at Noon, with Wings Hauser, yesterday and it was a better crazies movies than The Crazies.

 

Got Lawless, Kill and Kill Again, and Raw Force sitting here. Think I'm gonna give Lawless a try. Tom Hardy is the man!

 

Can't wait to get V/H/S on tuesday! My Neo Geo game system should show up on Friday! Should get Miami Connection next week! This is a good month, xmas is coming early!

Belated congrats on your offspring, Eko!

 

Sad how far behind I am on movie watching. Did catch ARGO last week. Good stuff.

 

Saw JOHN CARTER on cable. Snooze-o-rama. Someone wrote a check for $250 million and that's what they got in return?

 

Watched EX2 on disc. Still heaps of fun. One interesting thing that stood out. During the big scene where the team, along with Arnold and Willis, first open fire on Van Damme's convoy you don't see Norris in the shot. Though in the behind the scenes footage Norris is clearly there in that scene on the far right. Guess they cut him out because they wanted to keep the moment where he comes out of nowhere to save the day inside the airport.

I had a great time with Lawless. I'm not exactly a big fan of Shia Labeouf but I thought he was perfect for the role of the young whiny brother here.

 

Tom Hardy is really great (love the fact that half of his dialogue consists of grunting) but I think Guy Pearce was the highlight for me, as his character is so over-the-top evil that you can't help but want him to eat a bullet.

Nice. That does sound like a sweet deal. Then again I am not an online-ordering sort of person and if I could ever find that collection in a store (even the DVD version) that'd be an instant pick-up and that would make me pretty happy.

That's about what I expected from that film. Of course, I have heard that the movie had David Twohy in the director's chair and Elba was going to star; of course there was a change and obviously it was for the worse.

I can't say I had heard of the film until just now. I then looked it up and saw it's a 1999 movie which does sound interesting (an asshole character keeps on getting calls from some dude claiming to be his son)

Agreed on all counts.

 

I am staying in tonight but I did go out today already. I went back to Best Buy where because they were about 25 bucks total I got both seasons of Archer due to the buzz I've heard for it on here, from people I know, and even some celebrities. I then went to the nearby World Market to pick up some items, including some gourmet sodas.

If there's a performance that should've been nominated from Jackie Brown it's Robert Forster's in my humble opinion as he's the film's heart, though Grier and Jackson were excellent as well.

 

Caught Killing Them Softly this morning and was mighty impressed. It's certainly not for all tastes as it's slow, graphically violent, arguably anti-American, deeply cynical and lays its socio-political allegories on awfully thick, but it's also masterfully shot, deeply/darkly funny and wonderfully acted by the likes of Brad Pitt, Richard Jenkins, James Gandolfini, Ben Mendelsohn, Scoot McNairy and Ray Liotta. Writer-director Andrew Dominik is 3-for-3 with me. It was also nice to see the return of Johnny Sack.

Sounds like you've really got a lot going for you over the next few weeks! I got Kill And Kill Again from Deep Discount a few weeks ago. I liked it quite a bit. Lots of fun. Raw Force of course is excellent. I'd gladly take it over Kill And Kill Again. Code Red has the rights to put it out, and they're still sitting on it, but here's to hoping it gets a release some time next year. Let us know how the Neo Geo handles!

I agree on John Carter. Found myself falling asleep when I rented it from the Redbox during the summer. All that money, and we just got that.

 

 

Rented a few movies from the Redbox this morning. Outpost: Black Sun, Puppet Master X, and Airborne. Watching Outpost: Black Sun. Some really good action on display so far.

We will most definitely have an UNCUT PODCAST episode in the future devoted solely to Fulci films. You can count on that.

 

Blood Games was indeed a not bad way to waste some time. It really feels like a movie from 1985 rather than one that came out in 1990.

The Super Cops- a hilarious (based on a true story) movie where we follow buddy "super" cops from the academy to "fame". Ron Leibman does almost all the talking for the "dynamic duo", which are coined batman and robin by the streets and papers. This film really surprised me, it is great.

 

Homicide- is indeed the Mamet one and it was one of my favorite films when I was a teenager. Great dialog, great Joe Mantegna. Its a movie about hap and circumstance, karma, loyalty, but its all done better than it is in say something like U-Turn.

 

Hard Eight- not enough can be said about how great this gambling/mentor with a secret movie is. Paul Thomas Anderson's first film, and some people don't even know that it exists. Boogie Nights is great, but this is my favorite PTA flick.

 

Black Dynamite- everyone has to see Black Dynamite, or he will "Threw that shit before I can in the room!" on your ass. A great and hilarious send up to blaxploitation films like Dolomite and anything with a black guy doing kung fu "Who dares interrupt my kung fu!?!?" Way better than Undercover Brother.

 

MacGruber- is of course a parody movie of McGyver and not only that, its an awesome parody of the entire action genre, especially the action films of the eighties. This has become a cult favorite of mine and I can't wait for the teased sequel. "I'll suck as many dicks-I mean rip as many throats as I have to!" to see a sequel to this film.

 

Megaforce- oh god Megaforce. This was from my childhood, and I knew it was shit then, but I loved it. Megaforce is still shit, good shit.

 

Godzilla versus MechaGodzilla- yeah it was the older one, with the people who's faces turn green after dying and then become ape monsters or some shit, and it was awesome! I hadn't remembered it from childhood, even though I had seen tons of them, but I enjoyed it a lot this time.

 

I just finished Lawless from Jon Hillcoat (The Proposition) earlier and it was a pretty good "prohibition hillbillies gangster" movie, even though it had Shia LeBouf in it. Tom Hardy was great as the tough bad-ass older brother who comically mumbles and grunts out all his dialog.

Holy Moses! Guy even has Vectrex. Used to game away forever on that thing.

PG-13 and I'm gonna do the same, arms folded, low expectations, grin and bear it. I hope to be at least slightly surprised.

I dug the featurette, and McClane's quip about the double barrel shotgun being a "Pirate gun", but then he said "Let's go kill some scumbags", so that right there hinted to me that we're in for another PG-13. Y'know, I didn't mind the PG-13 at all with the previous one, so if that happens again, but it has as much action as the trailers make it appear to have, and let's not kid ourselves, the previous one had a ton of action in it too, then it shouldn't be too much of a major problem. Even though the original 3 are R-rated and proud to be, I wouldn't mind a PG-13, as we could get the unrated cut down the road. Hopefully a better put together one anyway.

OCTOPUSSY kind of rules. The Tarzan yell is unforgivable, though.

Agreed. One of my favorite moments of that movie is where Jeremy Irons' villain puts on an American accent. It's so over-the-top that it's hilarious.

Plus Die Harder may have the icicle in the eye, and John Amos getting shredded, but With A Vengeance has McClane blowing away several Germans in an elevator, a guy getting cut in half with a wire, Samuel L., McClane surfing the dump truck, the aforementioned Jeremy Irons with the American accent, Fat Indian Cop, Toilet Bug, and the whole bit with the subway train. Oh yeah, and Die Harder doesn't begin with The Lovin' Spoonful and then an explosion.

 

 

So yeah, EDGE GOES TO DIE HARD WITH A VENGEANCE.

 

 

Also, Octopussy completely rules!

I feel the same as Milkyway and Molt.  I'm keeping my expectations rock-bottom, call it the 'John-Moore-Effect', and challenging them to make something worthwhile.

He plays a gay hoodlum in love with Gerard Butler.

 

Rene is right, Butler's freak-out over the admission is a classic, as is the reveal to how far they went with their relationship.

You just know that actors love it when they are asked to put on a deliberately bad accent.  Can anyone think of other examples?

 

Jeffrey Donovan has seasons worth of scenes like that in Burn Notice.  I vividly remember his 'osss-traa-lian' character.

Cage as Adam West in KICKASS? His idea, and very funny.

Same here...I just loved the 4th one...it was well and smart written movie, and well directed with some awesome action sequences. Yeah, they went over the top at some points, but they did that in almost every previous Die Hard movie so I don't hold it against them...

Meh...it was good, but it was to much similar to the first one...only bigger and louder with different location. Vengeance was IMO much better, and personally I almost prefer Vengeance over Die Hard. Die Harder is my least favorite Die Hard sequel, but I still love the shit out of it hehe...easily 4/5

I said it couple of pages before, but I will say it again...I never understood what is fuss about PG-13!? I never watched movies in that way, because of the ratings...I never even paid much attention to it until EX2 PG-13 / R debate. Its not like R rating means that the movie will be good, same as it PG-13 doesn't mean that movie will be bad. Hell, they are pushing a loots of stuff under PG-13 these days that would be R 15 years ago, and there is a loots of PG-13 action movies that are gritty and violent same as some R rated movies. Hell, even Skyfall had some really questionable stuff in it (I believe that M even says fuck once) and it was PG-13, although I would not call it kids friendly movie. same goes for Casino Royal or Bourne movies. Most of the Jackie Chan movies are PG-13 movies, but thery are still big fun...and even the one that are R rated are only rated R because they have a bit more blood then his usually movies, or they have a sex scene lol...

 

 

BTW...talking about Stolen...somebody STOLEN picture from Ghost Rider 2 for Netherlands STOLEN poster lolbiggrin.gif

It would still have been fun today to have a cheap SPIDER-MAN from Cannon! By the way previously during had Tobe Hopper, Michael Winner, Joseph Zito (and I may miss some names) on the case from 1984-85 to 1988...
