  1. i would definitely be interested enough to watch this (if it happens). Reminds me of the idea John Carpenter and Kurt Russell had a while back about doing another 'Escape From...' as an animated feature, along with a video game. i was really jazzed about that idea, but unfortunately neither one got off the ground. Maybe if Mad Max works, it'll light that fire again. The idea for both projects is, in my opinion, way better than the proposed remakes, so here's hoping.

    That actually only happened once--the scene where he actually takes the pic of his unit to advertise. Thomas was filming another scene, so they asked me to do it.

    Too funny...too bad i didn't rate a percentage, being "Stunt Cock" and all, heh heh
  4. Finally got the chance to catch this movie this weekend, and damn, i'm glad i did. As we all know, Liam Neeson brings weight to everything he does, and it was refreshing to see kind of an old-school action flick with no CGI (or if there was any, it was so well-done as to not be obvious). Glad to see it's still doing well at the box office, despite being bumped by a re-make (re-imagining?) this weekend. Hopefully this might make Hollywood start to reconsider their suckling of the CGI teet.
  5. Yeah, i know it was a rip-off of a bunch of killer movies i grew up watching, but i really thought it was fun--and was hoping it would have found a bigger audience of kids who may not have been aware of that cool shit, and maybe have discovered classic stuff like Escape From NY for the first time. As for her acting in it, well i think she's one of the few who could read the phone book and make it watchable. Of course, this probably belongs in the Doomsday thread, so... She stays my number one choice for Lara Croft.
  6. i can't believe they didn't put Rhona Mitra on their list! She was the original live-action model for Lara Croft, fer crissake! Not to mention the fact that, as all of us who have seen Doomsday know, she totally kicks ass.
  7. i think everyone is still pissed off about the War Zone fiasco. i actually broke down and caught it during its lightning-quick run in theatres, and what a travesty... i would be interested to listen to her drunken commentary, but i'm not sure if it will amuse me or just make me more angry about the whole mess. My plan is to check it out from the library; that way it won't cost me anything but time.
  8. i've said for years, Thomas is like a new-school Steve McQueen. No contest. Russell Crowe? Daniel Craig?! Seriously.
  9. It's the 22nd of February (2.22)--he turns 40 this year, too.
  10. That was one of the most horrifying "reviews" i have ever read--complete right-wing drivel, seeming to come from the same minds that spewed forth the war in the first place. Inexcusable...thank you for posting it. It's always a good idea to read what the other side is up to. i hope people will get and stay informed.
  11. The Crow was the second date i ever had had with my wife (still have the ticket stubs). It was tragic, beautiful, and horribly prophetic. The only way to start this again is to go back to the source material, the original graphic novel. It was very different than the movie version, but otherwise this re-boot will be a waste and an insult to the entire 1994 film and to Brandon. Whichever direction they go, i still won't watch it, of course--i have my reasons--but it'd be nice to see them do it right.
  12. Ok, i have to admit--even though i am not a huge fan of this project, i caught myself today referring to someone as going 'all Looney Bin Jim on me'--so i guess it's infectious. i'm wondering if my subcounscious would be enough to convince me to see this...
  13. Damn--how could i have forgotten Max?! 'The chain on those handcuffs is high-tensil steel...' A sequence so classic, it was paid homage in a little movie we may have heard of called The Punisher--starring our very own bad-ass, Mr. Thomas Jane!
  14. That pic fuckin rocks! Hugh Jackman's Wolverine has got to be one of the baddest motherfuckers alive!
  15. Good list, but again i have to go back to Snake--how fucking classic is the end of Escape from NY, when he SPOILER walks away, cool as hell, unspooling the tape that could have theoretically brought peace to the earth? The only thing that could potentially top that piece of vengeance is the end of Escape from LA, when he SPOILERS abound shuts down the earth? Fucking priceless.
  16. Thank you sir, you are far too kind. i only did what i felt was right, and i feel Murphy and i developed a cool dialogue because of our interaction. i would like to consider him a friend now. And i should admit, this is one of the nicest things anyone has ever said about me, outside of my wife. It sincerely means a lot--thank you. And i also would like to extend a big thank you to Murphy for being such a gent, and having some patience with me.
  17. And if you get into Thorogood (as everyone in their right mind should), you should definitely check out John Lee Hooker. A lot of the same tracks (like One Bourbon, One Scotch, and One Beer--killer stuff), but old-school blues, fuckin classic.
  18. i knew they were behind it! You don't think it's a coincidence that the last time there was an oil crisis was when their 'don' had a nice hit show, do you? 8 is Enough, indeed!
  19. Congratulations on the move!
  20. Great list...and obviously loved them giving credit to Thomas Although, i would say Spider-Man may qualify for a spot on the list himself, since public opinion kinda could go either way at any given point.
  21. "ignore the lazy script and sub-par acting..." That is funny, and really a huge issue with this entire thing. Let's see, Thomas left, even with having a say in the script; and, despite the script issues with 04, who could possibly deny the man's talent? Just seems to make more sense to stick with an actor that delivers--every time--and work out the script issues, rather than put together a movie that takes some pretty serious hits in its' first review. i did love the nod to the MPAA's issues with sex vs violence, that was funny and still a troubling issue after all these years of movie-making.
  22. That was too cool. i personally could have done without the image of Murphy on a unicorn, but i would love to have that image of Clarence--he ruled that flick, and of course everyone nows Kurtwood Smith kicked all kinds of ass as Red! Great link Tiara, thank you!
  23. Yeah, there's no way he served in Nam for this flick. i do like that they're sticking with the massacre in Central Park, though.
  24. You need to get out as soon as you can--michigan kills people. Now we better get back on topic: i was on set yesterday, and told someone i was Thomas' double for Hung; he asked who Thomas Jane was (ARRGH!), so i told him he was The Punisher--not the new one, the real one. He actually asked, 'Dolph Lundgren?' i wanted to scream, i really did. Sure, props to the guy for knowing the character well enough to know Dolph was the first 'version', but seriously. Some people...
