  1. People believe they know what is best and what will sell. See above... Follow the money...
  2. I remember reading someplace (maybe an old comic?) that Supes used his heat vision on a reflective surface to trim his stubble Mind you in the comics, he can crush a piece of coal in each hand into two perfectly facetted diamonds in minutes in order to focus his heat vision to burn away cataracts as well... Best part I ever saw was Supes in the animated series... "I feel like I live in a world made of... cardboard, always taking constant care not to break something, to break someone. Never allowing myself to lose control even for a moment, or someone could die. But you can take it, can't you, big man? What we have here is a rare opportunity for me to cut loose and show you just how powerful I really am."
  3. I cannot express the whole movie as succinctly as many previous, but then again I'm just a comsumer who does not interact with that specifc work field. Aka, I'm an engineer working for a manufacturing corporation, not someone who works with/in the film industry. As such I will state what I believe. I have to agree with those that felt it was a more "art" movie. It definitely was not mainstream and I also agree with Mr. Bradstreet that I really liked the characters. My friends and I actually believed that Goslin's Character was Autistic to a point by his focus, difficulty in expressing himself and sudden emotional outbursts (kinda overdid it in the elevator, yes?). If you went into the movie looking for a version of "Transporter" you would be sorely disappointed. Great movie? Not IMHO. Good? Yea, I'd give it 3-3.5 stars outta five. Watch again in the theatre? No.
  4. Yeah. What a tool. Hey lets stick the camera 2 feet from the panelists and taking 20-30 images every time they are speaking. You would think that the moderator would have someone with a GOOD camera taking photo from the sides/back of the room.
  5. Some I've already suggested, Ghost Dog: Way of the Samurai Battle Beyond the Stars Ice Pirates A Better Tomorrow Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Heavy Metal
  6. If they truly do a T-5 with Arnie, It would be my hope that he is as secondary role. AKA. The terminator (young Arnold, probably CG) gets skin/dna from a living donor to grow/clone for the Infiltration units. @60, I could see it if Arnold's character was being kept alive after so many years to be a renewable source of "DNA" for creating the outer living tissue. Probably him and a dozen or so others for that purpose. That would be the only way I could see him re-enter the series at this point in the game. Sure he may end up with something bigger, but that would be a decent lead in. IMHO.
  7. I'm excited to see Cap shooting people with a .45! Wooo!
  8. Another excuse to partake of fine vintages and celebrate with others. A joyful day to yourself Mr. Jane.
  9. Mr. Jane, Just a little note of interest I hope. Emilo Ghisoni, designer of the Mateba 6 Unica, had designed a new revolver before his passing in late 2009. You may be interested in looking at the Rhino revolver being produced by Chiappa Firearms. I had an opportunity to shoot the 2" & 4" version at the SHOT Show in January and if you thought the Mateba was a superb shooter with excellent recoil taming ability, you should try one of these. Similar concept with shooting from lower cylinder position, but with the grip redesigned so that the barrel is almost level with the top edge of your hand. I know how much you liked the semi-auto revolver by the late Mr. Ghisoni, so just a heads up.
  10. My 2c. Enjoy your family, your friends and your life. All are precious, and none are replaceable. Everyday is moment to treasure, the dates are just placeholders for the memories you make. Have a memorable and joyous day.
  11. My 2 cents... SERVING IT RAW SERVED RAW: UNCUT & UNCENSORED Laugh for some reason I keep imagining the RAW Logo in a perspective view, on a plate with a trail of blood originating from the logo base and dripping off the edge of the plate nearest to the viewer.... I guess I'm more twisted than I thought.... RAW: SWAG & SUNDRIES RAW: SELF SERVE
  12. Laugh... If you get the goon role... "Raffi... Gun..." BANG
  13. only 40 minutes left for X-mas here. Hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable holiday!
  14. Nice Doss. You sound a little crazed in the clip BTW
  15. Another great Canadian icon... May your humour always come back and make us laugh...
  16. Wondering if you guys (Actors that is) grow out and try various hair sytles (both scalp and facial) in order to have a few variations for visual imagery for a portpolio? I know nada about acting and such so excuse me if I'm talking out my ass without knowing it.
  17. An Apache Gunner was a dangerous person too... We all saw how long that lasted Congrats however! Always nice to see someone doing what they love. I just shoot guns..... Too bad I don't get paid for it.
  18. A late Gobble Gobble to my US brethren as we already had ours up in Canuck-land. I hope all of you have a safe holiday weekend and remember to call those dear to you this evening and tell them so. Mike "Jarlath" Duynhoven
  19. Congrats! I watched Double Negative, I did agree with the sole detractor in the comments that the basic premise did seem "Bourne"-ish, but I really liked the continuation aspect (the jogger scene at the end). I also agree that it was a nicely done production (I coulda done without the reused footage of you getting dressed however ) I did wonder about the props used (I sure as hell wouldn't let an HK drop to asphalt like that). How much was CGI'd into the film (other than Helo's).
  20. Nothing wrong with a good senseless action flick. Just like The Mummy series are good for a comic relief style Indiana Jones (Nothing can be as bad as the crystal skull for groan factors). Entertaining? Sure, Good? Ehhh....
  21. Sigh. Sometimes I don't get along with my editors. My Article for the Mateba was finally published, but they never used any of the images I got from Mr. Bradstreet and Hannibal Films. Sigh.... At least they kept my mentions of Mr Jane and his love of the gun Just for your reading pleasure. Sorry about the small images. The original publication is a 69meg document... I hope I get a copy soon... Only 15,000 copies for distribution, but still it's a start
