eh, I don't know, he's slightly bigger than Christian Bale and that was fine. It could have been Aaron Taylor-Johnson, so be happy.
Bale got too skinny. Give me Batman Begins "Fatman" Bale. Also, I'm not overly impressed with any of the three finalists. I've always found Hoult to be stiff and wooden and think he's sucked as Beast in the X-Men movies, though in general everyone in the new cast who did not appear in Band of Brothers is pretty terrible.
TIL the director of Road House was a man named "Rowdy Harrington". He is from Pittsburgh and attended PSU, and is also known for directing Striking Distance (which makes sense). His contributions to the film world were small, but significant.
The opening car case in Striking Distance is a work of movie editing that is unmatched. None of those streets are even close to each other.

That reminds me of Jack Reacher. Car chase starts out at a motel on Rt. 65 and switches over to I279.

Die Hard 3 had a car chase in Central Park, but the car went into the Cooper River in Charleston, SC. :lol: #taxbreaks

My dad would sit there and yell at the TV explaining the same thing and calling out each location as it switched.

Good 'ole Dad.

Obviously that’s the knee jerk reaction but honestly the dude can act and everybody in the world hated the Heath Ledger casting when it was announced. I’ll wait to pass judgement on this one.
Robert Pattinson is to Batman, as nipples are to the Batsuit.

This is terribad very much.

The chase in True Lies, where Harry Tasker is on the horse chasing the terrorist baddie on the motorcycle, starts in front of the Georgetown Park Mall in Washington DC and ends up in the elevators of the Bonaventure Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

Real horse was ridden into the real elevator in the actual lobby of the hotel, and then much of the rest of the scene was Movie Magic using a combination of real and fake horses, and mockup elevator cabs using rear projection background slates.

for those that aren't familiar, there's a website and app called JustWatch that is amazing for finding films to watch that are on streaming services
Used this again, thanks.

Mississippi Burning is somehow not available on the bigger services. :| It's on Vudu and Redbox. Hmph.

Highly, highly recommend the documentary on Netflix called "Perfect Bid". About a unique wrinkle on the Price is Right.

Outstanding

Yeah, that was nuts.
The way the PiR crew instantly thought the perfect bid was fraud and hated it was astounding. No joy at all, just near-anger and loathing.

Watched Tampopo last night which is a ramen western and it was delightful. Hilarious and outrageous, I can't really describe what I watched, but it's a Japanese love letter to food and film! Highest recommendation.

*sigh*

Tampopo........

What a thing. All that you need to know to survive a trip to Japan in one convenient 30-year old movie.

Also notable as one of Ken Watanabe's first roles.

It's also a brilliant satire of many aspects of Japanese culture, especially in the side scenes that are interspersed throughout the main plot. My favorite scene in the movie (below) is where the junior businessman shows up the executives when ordering at the French restaurant. That's a satire of the "yes men" culture that often prevails in the Japanese business world, where it's considered unthinkable to so anything that would run contrary to the top boss or make the boss look bad. It's not only my favorite scene in the movie, it's one of my favorite movie scenes. I laugh every time the other guy kicks the junior under the table.

‘Honey I Shrunk The Kid’ Reboot ‘Shrunk’ in the Works With Josh Gad to Star
I have independently confirmed with three sources that Walt Disney Pictures has signed actor Josh Gad to star in a Honey, I Shrunk The Kids reboot/sequel. In the original film, Rick Moranis played a scientist father who accidentally shrinks his teenage son and daughter (alongside some neighborhood kids) to just a quarter of an inch in size. They must then adventure through their backyard to return home while fending off insects and other massive-sized obstacles.

The plan is for the movie to be set about three decades after the 1989 original, with Gad set to play the grown-up version of scientist and inventor Wayne Szalinski’s son, Nick Szalinski. The new movie, which will be titled Shrunk, will be a reboot of the original film, but positioned as a “legecyequel,” which means it will exist in the same world and continue the overall storyline. And yes, Nick Szalinski accidentally shrinks his kids, which kickstarts the story of the film.

Fcking Josh Gad. Pops up like a persistent, annoying zit constantly. The original was a classic, STOP RUINING THINGS.

Josh Gad is the worst but HISTK is a pretty good reboot candidate. The first movie really doesn’t hold up.
