  1. Really cannot wait to see this. My copy is on the way! Supergroovy interview with Steve Romano, thanks for posting that Tim! Trudell
  2. Tim has been really cool about cutting gpa kevin some slack, over and above what that guy deserves. To join this community means you support it. This forum is not open to individuals who's only purpose is to come here to insult its founders. He did not have to post a link for that video here in order to get his point across. His last communications on this thread were more than enough for me. So with a smile on my face and a green light agreement from the boys, I'm happy to report that gpa kevin is no longer welcome here. Thank you Mike V and justaguy for bringing this to our attention.
  3. If the topic is not worth discussion Thomas you won't hurt anyone's feelings by spending your time elsewhere in the forum. You have badgered this topic black and blue for pity's sake. Why stick around here just to constantly slam the movie and harp on other people's opinions? When I archive this thread I will be removing a good deal of the non productive fatty tissue . Trudell
  4. Hi Thomas! I mean Boogie Nights was a technically a lead but it was also a big ensemble movie, and his next two were a large step down. Read my original post, where I acknowledged Boogie Nights. Boogie Nights was a great film but Marky Mark was not alone, and he had the luxury of Paul Anderson. His acting was earnest and he was perfect for the role. Luck of the draw. It says nothing whatsoever. Marky Mark was put on the fast track to his career because his brother saved his life by giving him one. Some girls just love a white rapping bad bo
  5. Updated: 10-19-2008 You can read quite clearly in the rules of conduct that we will not allow multiple member ID's for individuals. Recently I've begun pruning our members searching for people who do not think the rules apply to them. If I haven't made it to you yet and you would like to come forward we'll take that into consideration. See below for the updated list of member names and their status. We take this very seriously and we thank you for your attention and cooperation. As always, if you notice people abusing the forum boards in any way please report it to the forum admi
  6. That sounds like some very good advice. It also sounds like Marty Feldman telling Bette Davis she has big eyes. Trudell
  7. Not true at all Thomas. In my case I'm addressing a statement you made with a counter, which speaks for itself. Read what you said. "Mark Wahlberg didn't begin his career as a leading man with a garbage movie like Warzone." That is the comment I'm being specific to. Evidence would suggest that your statement is built on a foundation of sand. Of course that's all dependent on how you rate the films I mentioned. You could defend those films to help prove your point but instead you're changing the subject. I can't answer to what Mike's intentions were. Trudell
  8. Superexcellent! Thanks for checking in with that Thomas. Trudell
  9. Now you're just being stubborn Thomas. Yes, he did have Boogie Nights, with a great ensemble and a great director. But I wouldn't be chanting praises too loud for The Big Hit, or The Corrupter. Followed by that string of hits, Planet Of the Apes, Rock Star, and The Truth About Charlie? Rome was pretty great and Ray was pretty great in it. PWZ gave him an opportunity as a leading man in a fairly high profile action movie. He fell in love with the character by all accounts. How do you begrudge him for that? That's a rhetorical question. Trudell
  10. First let me say that Thomas definitely marches to the beat of a different drum. He's not the kind of person who internalizes much. Regardless. It looks very evident that you've been offended by him from the start. You saw Thomas' comment regarding Warzone as a personal affront against Ray Stevenson? I think it's been talked about at length that Thomas wasn't even aware of who Ray Stevenson was when he was cast so that sounds like you taking something a little too personally. That kind of assumed collateral damage is mostly people reading what they want into the statement. It hangs there t
  11. I'll get back to this in a little while but just wanted to say, Why would you think your post won't last? Did anyone delete the comments you made previously when you voiced your opinion on this subject? Back soon. Trudell
  12. Well you did voice your dissatisfaction with Thomas earlier in this thread. You were bothered by something he said and you voiced your opinion. That worked out pretty well. When I read your words I felt more than a little bit betrayed that you went there to discuss it. It has the appearance of creating a mob mentality against someone I care about. Trudell
  13. My cat just deleted my post, Argh! Here it is again. Nomad Just curious. Is your purpose here as a member of the Raw forums only to act as a mole for the things Thomas says? I was just alerted to a post you made on imdb's message boards. It appears to me your actions would be just as reprehensible as what you presume of Thomas'. We're not blind here, and I'm no fan of a wolf in sheep's clothing. That's fine, take everything Thomas says personally. Fashion your own spin. Enjoy swimming in the drama you perpetuate. To put on a face here and then report back on safe gr
  14. Let me understand this Tiara, are you saying goodbye to the boards because Fred has been temporarily suspended? Trudell
  15. Just wanted to add, we like Fred, we did not want to have to suspend him. But we made it very clear in a recent warning involving the Warzone thread in particular that personal attacks would not be tolerated. For the most part everyone here has conducted themselves accordingly. But there have been a couple of folks in particular who repeatedly have made this Forum their battleground. See the Behavior Issues thread for more info on that. In this particular instance Fred crossed the line. The other member in question did not. I have the feeling that Fred knew exactly what he was do
  16. I had to vote for "American History X" but I really enjoyed "The Illusionist" as well. Totally different films of course. History X will always be tops, especially with time doing it's thing. The film has aged like fine wine, which is the true mark of excellence. "Primal Fear" was an average film but for the huge blindsiding red herring of Norton's character, and one of the real reasons it worked so well is because we hadn't really seen him in anything before. He was a fresh face so we as an audience took that at face value and it worked like a charm. Pretty incredible performance. I
  17. Great news Tim. Congratulations guys. Really cannot wait to see this book. Are you back now or still in flux? God why do I have to be up this early? Trudell
  18. Let's please get back on point people. Feel free to pick back up on whatever it is you're discussing over in the Raw Bar. Trudell
  19. Careful Kiddies, I saw Mr. Gainer lurking these halls only a few hours ago! I'm not saying don't be honest about your thoughts, I'm just saying Big Brother is watching Trudell
  20. In the meantime, as we wait for another needless remake, go out and rent or buy the original Angel Heart with the very charismatic Mickey Rourke of old. Johnny Handsome is Johnny Favorite is Jonathan Liebling, or as Harry Angel refers to himself (unknowingly) .. Johnny Golden-tonsils. 6 degrees of Johnny. Angel Heart is a modern classic. This makes about as much sense as remaking Bad Lieutenant. Wherever Bradstreet is right now I know he's going to have kittens when he hears this one. He turned me onto this movie years ago. Trudell
  21. I didn't mind Shooter so much. But PotA and TTAC were gastronomical stink bombs. I would love to name a few other MW vehicles which made my stomach lurch but there really isn't any point to it. When Mark is good, he's pretty good. In my eyes those are few and far between. I still like Don better. My dad convinced me to watch Band Of Brothers and I'm glad he did. Don was real good in that. I thought he was startlingly effective in Sixth Sense (albeit briefly). He did very well in Dreamcatcher (another small role), and I thought he was major good in Boomtown. Like to see more of hi
  22. That's almost like saying "That's shit, but at least it's brown shit." The theatrical release just makes the pile bigger. I love Damien Lewis. Trudell
  23. Yeah well, best of luck to MW on that potential oscar nom. He'll need all the luck he can get after "The Happening". YIKES! Trudell
  24. Yep, bad call. Finish the film, then release it. I'm sure there are a myriad of rationalizations, some even well founded, that have brought this film to it's current state. But the big picture is the most important. You do the film and it's reception a huge disservice when you release it in such a way. Is it greed? Necessity? I call it unfortunate. Trudell
