DVDs and Films You Have Watched Recently 3 - The Final Insult

Recommended Posts

Manbabies are complaining that Captain Marvel is feminist anti-male propaganda, and the media are idiots are amplify their position because it generates clicks, rather than ignoring them as they rightly deserve.

Wow. Just wow. The world is more fucked than I thought. People actually care about this shit...

I'm more shocked that you are shocked that obsessive fans on the internet are shocked about something they're obsessive fans of.

And they think by paying to see Alita: Battle Angel multiple times it'll do....something?

 

To be fair, that movie has deserved to do so much better then it has. Though I hate this sub culture of "fans" trying to mess about with rival films so the one that want to do better at the box office does.

Sorry for the double post, but this is fucking awesome. It's only a short film disguised as a trailer, but it looks brilliant. I know there are some on here who'd hate the idea, but it's so well-executed, I would be very much intrigued as to how it went.

I saw that earlier this week. I really like it and it's really well made but I doubt I would be interested to actually watch the show if it was real.

I believe this was Jackie's big breakthrough and it's a very enjoyable one and one of his early best. Directed by the great Yuen Woo Ping, it features some great fight choreography and the usual humour of these early Chan Kung Fu movies. Chan is just so likeable and his skills are just impeccably tailored to any style he puts hi

Triple Frontier was decent enough. I think it could have done with a few extra shoot outs/set pieces but there was enough there for me to stay invested. Hunnam manages to sound less American the longer he spends over there.

Talk about a misleading cover... this was utter shit, but entertainingly so. The cast - a bunch of ropey looking strippers and cardboard men - seem like they're under heavy sedation as never before have I seen a horror film where the characters are so unfazed by imminent death. The titular elves aren't even part of it - there's a doll that shows up a few times, but that's yer lot as far as mischievous homunculi go. The acting is so bad it's actually pretty funny and the story makes no sense at all: something about an enchanted "naughty list" that convinces the idiots to do bad things. Then, towards the end, a figure in a goat masks shows up and turns it into a generic slasher film, because the makers obviously couldn't be bothered with their attempt at mythology making. An absolute abortion of a film, which still amused for just how inept everything about it is. it's quite Wiseauian.

I love that film - I love most of Jackie's early films. My absolute favourite's Project A but The Young Master, Drunken Master, all a load of fun. I even had a VHS copy of Hand Of Death where he's not the main role and

gets killed, which is an odd experience.

 

My friend, who is a massive kung fu movie fan, not so much - he went on a massive rant about how Yuen Woo Ping is a fraud and overrated, and how the Wachowskis got the wrong choreographer in with Yuen instead of Sammo Hung for The Matrix.

I only really got into Jackie Chan stuff last year as my mate is a big fan and introduced me to films like Project A, Dragons Forever, Wheels On Meals and Armour Of God. Previously, I'd only really seen mostly his American stuff like Rumble In The Bronx, Rush Hour and First Strike.

Now I've been on a collecting binge and picking up some of his classic stuff before the mid 90s. I didn't realise what a minefield it is in regards to Chan's movies and how mishandled some of the releases have been. Luckily, they have been some excellent recent blu ray releases of some of his best stuff. Esp as most of his early stuff is OOP on dvd.

The first Police Story is prob my current favourite and I can watch that final fight scene over and over again.

I'm still annoyed that my VHS copy of Half A Loaf of Kung Fu got chewed up by a friends' player.

Your mate is a bellend, if you want hyper-realistic stunts then Sammo is your man. If you want surreal floaty wire work, which is obviously what was called for, Yuen is the only choice.

I‚Äôm 25 minutes into Holmes & Watson. Big Stepbrothers fan, but this is the worst ‚Äúcomedy‚ÄĚ I‚Äôve seen since A million ways to die in the west. Not laughed once.

‚ÄėUpdate‚Äô I finished it and even an appearance from Braun Strowman couldn‚Äôt save it. Truly awful and I read after test scores were so bad that Sony tried to sell the film and even Netflix rejected it!
