  1. Yeah, the mood swings can be pretty sudden and extreme. Sometimes i turn into a real sarcastic prick (even more than usual), others times i get all goofy and act like a little kid (those were my wife's favorite ones). It has happened while driving; i actually spent the night in jail once because they thought i was drunk. Took a few hours to convince them i was diabetic. Like i said, i feel like a menace to society. Really shouldn't need a fucking baby-sitter at my age. It was one thing when it happened with my wife, but now my in-laws don't even like me to go anywhere alone.
  2. i have to admit, the worst theater experience i had was courtesy of me. Let me start by saying i am a type 1 diabetic; there are times when my blood sugar drops on me without any warning signs that i am aware of (my wife could always spot the most minor of clues, and she would get me some food, and all would be good--but i no longer have that luxury; it was funny, she used to say she was my wrangler). Anyway, when the sugar drops, i very much appear to be drunk--slurring words, can't focus, no balance. So i went to see The Dark Knight. It was on our one day off from the 'Hung'
  3. Can't help but wonder what the book is she'd like to see on-screen. Maybe Year One, where where Frank is a depressed, suicidal alcoholic; or maybe from Welcome Back Frank, there was a cool scene where he fought this big hitman called 'The Russian', who wore this ridiculous red and white striped shirt and practically handed Frank's ass to him-- Oh wait...
  4. Damn, you guys are really ambitious. i haven't watched any of the trailers for this thing since the original one; guess i'll have to go check this one out, mostly out of pure curiosity. Did try to check out the revamped website though, but it was taking too long to open and i just didn't have the patience.
  5. i have to say, in defense of Marvel-- i've been working with them for nearly two years now, doing promo appearances as Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, and have found them to be a genuine pleasure to deal with the entire time (along with the fact that they have given me the opportunity of fulfilling my lifelong dream of being Spider-Man!). While i realize that the office 'suits' may be a completely separate entity from the promo division, i have always thought that Marvel is a much more approachable corporation, as opposed to their Distinguished Competition. i would tend
  6. i just watched Dolph's again yesterday; it was still silly and still had it moments--although it still makes me a little uncomfortable every time they call him 'Frank Castle', since that wasn't our Frank. Was at a shoot the other night and someone told me that in person Dolph is really a dick. i said, 'You know who's not a dick? Thomas Jane.'
  7. i tend to be a fan of 80s horror, too, and anything with Shannon Elizabeth is worth watching at least once.

    Thank you sir! Still ranks as the greatest shoot of my career; and Alexander runs the greatest set, without question. i would love to work with him again in any capacity.
  9. Thanks, i have my moments. Not many of them, but i do have them... That one always looked goofy to me. While i have no problem with them changing the skull (the '04 version rocked the house), the new Warzone version just looks silly. A friend of mine said it looked like a 4-year-old finger-painted it. Thanks man, looks like i'm heading to Walmart...
  10. Which store did you find the thermal? Is it a real skull, or the cheesy Warzone version?
  11. There is absolutely no need for a remake of Death Wish (or Bullitt, for that matter), but if it happens, i don't think the studios will allow it to be done properly. Casting is obviously the first issue, and while Thomas would be perfect for either (i've been saying for a while that he is like the new Steve McQueen), the moneymen will have to glam it up with a pretty boy, box office draw, and eliminate all the grit--since it seems that today's audiences tend to find grit too icky. There have been exceptions, to be sure, but no record-breaking box-office. i have to admit, i found Death
  12. i'll be skipping this one at the box office. i'm 35, and have been a Punisher fan since i was a kid, actually had his first appearances in Spider-Man. i was curious, but i'll be skipping this one out of respect to Thomas. May have said this before, but Ray Stevenson may be a great actor, and Lexi Alexander may have put together a cool movie, but i am very not happy with LGF and the fact that they let Thomas walk away because he apparently had too much respect for the character.
  13. i really end up liking both of them too (amazing how easy it has been for me to forget each of their "music" careers, that means these guys have acting chops). And am i the only one who liked Rock Star?!
  14. No! i don't want to know! That's it, i'm picking up the book today--an ending in the memory warehouse, that i just have to read.
  15. When i was a kid, i was glued to the TV every day for reruns of Adam West. When i was a teenager, Tim Burton gave us Michael Keaton, and he owned. Had no problem with him being a comedian in other stuff, his Batman was how i felt Batman should be (and you're right, TL, his eyes completely sold it). Then came Val; i am a big fan, but obviously Joel Schumacher screwed the pooch. However, i started to compare the portrayals of the Dark Knight, and tended to prefer Keaton as Bruce Wayne (i loved how he tended to be kinda scattered when dealing with the trivial details of everyday life-
  16. She was Thomas' bride-to-be, until the ceremony of course. She was also Party Girl, and was in Blade: Trinity, the debacle that was Superman Returns, and A Mighty Wind, and a lot of other stuff. Check her out on IMDb, she's cool.
  17. Tom was at Screamfest last year, and unfortunately i didn't get the chance to meet him--i was helping out at another booth and ran out of time. A good friend of mine did though, check out 'Jimmy Star is The Shit!' on youtube, it's fucking hilarious.
  18. 'Vengeance and Retribution'...'Dark and Sadistic'...i am so there! All the elements of a great western, and a lot of great stories.
  19. i bet she is fun, i do like her sense of humor. i miss the curves she had in The Mask though; i didn't see her again until My Best Friend's Wedding, and her character annoyed the living piss out of me--'I can be Jell-o!' i guess that's not her fault, but i'd like to see her put some weight back on.
  20. Donnie Wahlberg did kick ass, but i was disappointed they went all CGI for the final battle. Was kinda disappointed with the original ending too, though. i have got to get the book, see if maybe they could have handled it better, with more Duddits.
  21. Is there a DVD with Special Features? That would rule.
  22. Have to admit (and i know i'm showing my age with this one), the last song i listened to was Bonnie Tyler, 'Total Eclipse of the Heart'. Heard it on the radio a couple of months ago, there's a line that brought me to tears: "Once upon a time there was light in my life, now there's only love in the dark..." Since then i added it to my Project Playlist set, listened to it again last night with the same effect. i've always loved the Jim Steinman/Meat Loaf stuff, and this one had the same feel.
  23. Have to agree, Taxi Driver is one of the greatest movies ever. Got the 2-disc collector's ed at Walmart for $6! It's such a shame that the mainstream audiences (sheep) don't appreciate it more. Makes me sad, but at least there are those of us that can appreciate and respect quality work.
  24. i really feel people need to make their own decisions about what works for them, not follow along like sheep. Some people need meds, some need counseling, some just need to vent sometimes (and some of us like to drink). It is really all up to the individual, and as long as no one is getting hurt...
  25. Ahh, caffeine--one of my favorite drugs. Of course, i also tend to self-medicate with other things, but mine comes in tall glass bottles...
