post #99351 of 136438

@duke fleed: Assante I liked in Private Benjamin, Federal Protection and his Premier Goya in the TV-Show Chuck.

 

@Felix: Looking forward to all action movies and they are all on my buy list. Same guys as ever: Lundgren, Adkins, and so on. Also the new movies in theaters like Two guns,RED 2, White house down, German Horror Lost place (let me say, normally i don't like German movies), Riddick, Prisoners, Drecksau aka Filth, You're next, Escape plan, Getaway (Hawke, Payne), The Family, Machete Kills, Homefront, Heat, the new Robocop, Three days to kill, Pompeij, Non-Stop, 300: rise of an empire, Need for speed, lone survivor, Fast and the furious 7, Edge of tomorrow  - and all that today unknown action movies that come to surface in the next 15 or twenty months or the next years.  

 

And sometimes i watch older flicks like Vigilante force or Let's get Harry.

Something to laugh - but it is NO joke of the German distributor

 

http://www.video.de/videofilm/operation-olympus-white-house-taken-dvd-leih/178228

 

On this site I watch out for the newest movies to rent or buy in Germany. Okay, for me it is only to buy.

 

Around 25 Miles or over 30 Kilometer there is no Video Store to rent a movie. Only via Internet like watchever or lovefilms but there the movies or TV-Shows are mostly cut. I buy my movies from my merchant or at internet shops like ofdb.de. Movies like "Forced to fight" or the Seagal-DVDs from the second season of True justice i had to buy at amazon.co.uk because they have no German distributor. These movies I need to watch with English subtitles. Without them i lose.

Guys, I'm really depressed.

 

I'm at work reading all of these fantastic Ninja: Shadow Of A Tear reviews on my lunchbreak and would love to watch it now! But, instead, I've got to go back to work.

 

post #99354 of 136438

Welcome aboard, Harry - that's quite a collection you've got there! Have you seen a french flick called NID DES GUEPES, or in our northern part of europe, THE NEST? I always trot that one out; IMO it's way overlooked. Good call on THE TOURNAMENT too; here in Copenhagen I did notice it doing decent business as a rental.

 

Can't wait for NINJA 2, the last Adkins flick that got such acclaim was UNDISPUTED 3 - which rocked my socks off!

He seems well adjusted and sane.  I guess much of the craziness that was going on before was down to his dispute with the mob/production company.

Sometime later tonight I really should read it, considering it's about a studio we all love and loved.

 

Today I once again did not do anything; it was because it was literally raining all afternoon and I did not feel like going out and about. Unless the weather is really shitty tomorrow, that'll be when I finally do something.

post #99360 of 136438

Having myself a nice evening. Ate a brisket and sausage burger from one of the nearby places that recently opened. Also got quite a few items in the mail. 2 issues of Gorezone that I was missing, The Zombie Pack (Zombie 3, Zombie 4: After Death, and Zombie 5: KILLING BIRDS with Robert Vaughn!), Hobgoblins on dvd (it's a Gremlins ripoff) and directly from Shout Factory the Prince Of Darkness Blu-ray with the poster of the new artwork. I usually don't order direct from them, but that poster of the new art is really cool and I figured it would be worth the extra money. Got it a day earlier from the scheduled release date as well so that was pretty awesome.

Hobgoblins is only watchable on MST3K. Zombie 5 is AWFULLLLL, I thought 3 was very underrated and 4 was silly fun, though. 

post #99365 of 136438
I've been wanting to see 5, and I agree on 3 and 4. Love the 80's rock song that starts off 4. "LIVING AFTER DEEEEAAAATTTTHHHHH!!!!"

I have Hobgoblins on VHS, but figured I should get the DVD while prices are still reasonable. Some people want too much for this silly little no budget film.

Late Show: Watched MEMOIRS OF AN INVISIBLE MAN. A lot of fun. I really admire both Chase and Carpenter for trying to branch out, doing something different than their fans expected. While it's funny at times, for the most part it's a straight up thriller. Chase is actually acting, resisting the urge to ham it up and toning down the self-contious smarm and disconnected, winking persona. Carpenter's direction is assured, and the ground-breaking CGI holds up, standing with the best of the 90's decade. A underrated, if second tier, Carpenter.

The CGI is still great but the film never totally comes together for me. The choice to make Chase visible to the audience is an odd and jarring one. I know Chase gets a bum rap now (and a lot of that is earned) but Carpenter speaks very highly of him and admires that he took all the blame when the project flopped and critics hated it. Supposedly he still sends Carpenter a Christmas card every year. Carpenter called it a "noble failure." I think that's a fair assessment. At least he still had an interest in making movies at that time. His "I'm old and tired" routine makes me kind of sad now.

Hmmm...interview felt kind of strange. He sounded very official and not saying much interesting information's. And whats that about that he cant comment a movie that he co-directed only because its produce by the company that he isn't associated any more!? Not even saying whats the movie about, or is it action packed, or anything. Find that very strange...

I always liked this movie...like you said, its lot of fun!

 

BTW, talking about INVISIBLE MAN....this anybody ever catch that TV show from 2000-2002, also know as I-MAN, with Vincent Ventresca and Paul Ben-Victor? I loved that show, it was so entertaining and funny. Its really shame that it get only two seasons...

Saw Nic Cage's Stolen recently. It's pretty much a by the numbers thriller. Nothing new or special in it.

 

But i can't fault Director Simon West's work in this. He's a competent enough guy. No annoying jump cuts or shaky cam. Hope he gets another Directing gig soon.

I forgot to mention last night that I revisited the Christopher Lambert version of Beowulf yesterday. I hadn't seen it since I rented it years ago. Lambert and Rhona Mitra were the best parts of the movie. I had the urge to COMB MY HAIR after seeing Rhona Mitra.

I've always been meaning to check out that version of Beowulf

 

I Redbox'd the just released (hooray for night shifts) Redemption. I found it...off. It's nice to see Statham play a more volatile, troubled guy, but the overall message of the film is murky and not really brought to a satisfying conclusion. I think the biggest weakness is the lack of seeing why the street urchin meant so much to Statham to turn his life around in order to go out for revenge. Nice touches throughout, looks slick, but there's a reason why it slipped out of theaters so quick.

Oh wow. That guy is still acting, according to IMDb; that was a surprise to me. It looks like he's had the most odd low-budget roles for years now. I think it's a highlight in recent years when he can appear in movies like Pootie Tang playing a dude named DICK LECTER.

That's a shame. Ol' Stubblehead tries to do something different and it ends up being disappointing story-wise. Hopefully his box office run gets redeemed when Homefront comes out, and I'll stick with The Raid: Redemption.

post #99385 of 136438

Got in my Code Red order earlier today of THE FEMALE BUNCH triple feature with that movie in it starring FEMI BENUSSI as well as the Kung Fu movie with a black guy named WAR HAWK TANZANIA called Devil's Express. Devil's Express has been a slog and stopped it a little while ago as Vanessa wasn't too into it and we wanted to see Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. We only saw the last half of it but it was decent enough for me to want to see more episode either when they air or when the show hits video.

 

So right now we're watching Walk Hard. I still remember when we saw it back in 2007 and both of us had a good time laughing at it.

post #99386 of 136438

You know, last night and earlier today I forgot to mention what I saw last night; yep, for the time being I am still on a mainly Hitch kick but tomorrow I'll likely change that (more on what I am talking about in a bit); what I saw was 1942's Saboteur. The thing is, at first when I started thinking about the director's movies earlier in the month, I did not think I had seen it... then later I realized that I had, and sometime within the past 10 years. I don't know what that means if I had forgotten about it, but I gave it a second viewing.

 

While it's not as good as The 39 Steps or North by Northwest (all three are pretty similar in that they deal with a wrongly accused man who have to travel to avoid being captured, and they meet a blonde who they have a rocky relationship with) it's still entertaining enough. What I ended up remembering the most about the movie after another viewing was all the wacky shit, and yes there is plenty of wackiness and odd setpieces, from the hero using a toddler as a shield to avoid being shot at and escaping a ranch, to him meeting an old blind dude who lives in the middle of nowhere and sometimes seemingly has the powers of Daredevil... or Zatoichi. And... there's also a circus troupe where for a few minutes you see the "freaks" such as a bearded woman and Siamese twins.

 

Oh, and there's plenty of speechifying and a raging patriotism boner (to borrow a phrase) but I understand that as the movie came out in '42 and it's all about how the hero was set up in an act of sabotage and it's war-related. What an interesting movie, for sure, and the Statue of Liberty finale is pretty great.

 

Sometime real late tonight or-likely-tomorrow I need to watch something not classy at all and something low-budget and sleazy, as something different, you know. Devil's Express (sometimes known as Gang Wars) sounds like the perfect candidate for that, despite the less than rave reviews. It's easy to find online and I have to see a movie starring an actor who decided that his stage name should be WARHAWK TANZANIA. It sounds so zany and off the wall it has to be watched. I am also astounded that the movie briefly features the monologist known as Brother Theodore, who'd probably be best known as Uncle Reuben in The 'Burbs

 

It's funny that I saw his name on the IMDb connected with that film, as just a few days ago on Letterboxd I saw someone talk about another real obscure '70's film where he appears. It is called MASSAGE PARLOR HOOKERS. It stars some random people who I haven't really heard of, except for Sandra Peabody (Mari from Last House on the Left), George Dzundza (!) as MR. CREEPY and Brother Theodore. The person who watched it did not really care for it at all despite saying that the movie was like Friedkin mixed with Herschell Gordon Lewis, which sounds pretty great to me! I should be able to track it down to give it a viewing before Rene inevitably tries to find it himself! No offense but that sounds like something right up his alley.

 

Anyhow, at least I have a collection of total schlock that I can check out in the near future.

post #99387 of 136438
Haha! I already own The Massage Parlor Hookers on Blu-ray! It's under the same title save for Murders replacing Hookers in the title. I talked about it back when I got it around March or April.

Yeah Brother Theodore is up to his crazy antics in Devil's Express and is a PRIEST! There's a scene towards the end where he's ranting to a crowd on the street! The movie was ok, but it felt REALLY slow in parts.

SABOTEUR is my second fave Hitch - right behind REBECCA.

 

Late Show: watched IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS. With it and PRINCE OF DARKNESS i go back and forth on whether i like them or not. They're top 10 Carpenters that don't always work for me. Tonite, however, MADNESS hit me right, and i'm delighted to say i was creeped out and spooked.

Same here. For me movie start being exiting when end credits role and that tum-tum sound/music start playing while dog was running...

 

BTW...here is one awesome looking trailer for Chinese action thriller FIRESTORM. It has kind of "Chinese THE HEAT" feel to it...

Perhaps you know the name Charles Huber from Skyscraper oder Enemy mine. (More known in Germany from the TV-Show "Der Alte). He is now a politician in my county.
