  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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. I just found a truly bizarre 2004 review of Tom's PUNISHER film, acusing it of being "unamerican"! Apologies if this has been posted before.

    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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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...

  9. 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.

  10. Parker, Murphy -

    I wanted to take a moment and applaud you both for taking the high ground so quickly in what could have been some potential ugliness.

    When someone has a bit of venom in their heart it's easy to step up, be insulted, and take it up another notch.

    The true "stepping up" was Parker's quick apology. That right there is the easiest was to diffuse another tired online pissing match ;)

    That's what a MAN does, takes responsibility. And big thanks to Murphy for being such a gent.

     

    I hope everyone on the forum takes note.

     

    Well done.

    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.

  11. You can't put alcohol in a Harrison quote from Raiders buddy! ;)

     

     

    P.S.

     

    I'm behind on these threads what/who is Thorogood?

    Sorry, been busy renovating my basement

     

    -Raffi

     

    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.

     

  12. I think it's obvious that Nomad is referring to the Van Patten family.

    Anyone who knows anything KNOWS that the Van Pattens (led by the unscrupulous Dick Van Patten) ARE the infamous "THEY", AKA "THEM".

    As in, "I can't believe THEY approved the hairstyle Tom Hanks has in DaVinci Code." . . . Yep, the Van Patten's.

    Or, "Why can't THEY keep gas prices below $2 a gallon like this all the time?" . . . You guessed it, the Van Patten family AGAIN.

     

    Cheeky fuckers.

     

    Here's Dick with his son, former Tiger Beat Heartthrob, Vince Van Patten at the 2007 premiere of Saw IV.

    I know, they look harmless right?

    Don't let the smiles fool you. They pull every string pullable, planet wide.*

    * yes, this is satire ;)

     

    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!

  13. Thomas, I just moved to Los Angeles, and with Tim's news that the new issue of Bad Planet #6 is on shelves now, I'm looking for a good place to buy comics. I know I could just Google it, but I don't know the city and the neighborhoods that well yet, and you can't tell what kind of place it is just by looking at it on the internet. So I was wondering if you could recommend a good comic store. I live in downtown LA, but as I said, I don't know the city that well yet, (I've only been here a few weeks) so any help would be appreciated. I'm anxious to get my hands on BP #6 so I can complete my set. And I'm dying to see how it ends. :P

     

    If you don't want to "endorse" anyone, or don't feel comfortable answering, I understand. Thanks.

    Congratulations on the move!

  14. "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.

  15. 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!

  16. 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.
