What we watching? – Mudspike at the movies


#41

I do relate.
Boy, I do.


#42

I had never seen the movie Nacho Libre…we watched it last night and I was almost in tears in parts. Oh man. I never really thought Jack Black was very funny…but that was pretty good…


#43

Not quite the movies as it appears to be a tv series, but certainly looking forward to it…


#44

On the subject of tv shows, the second season of Grand Tour seems to be getting some traction. Much closer to the old Top Gear chemistry.


#45

I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the series! So glad they have so much more freedom now with Amazon.

I found Rambo 3 on TV while I was cleaning today. It… Hasn’t aged well.


#46

Yeah. Part 1 is still good, 2 is still OK, but 3… Yeah… not so great.


#47

Just watched Dave Chappelle’s Equanimity on Netflix. :+1: Looking forward to The Bird Revelation. :smiley:

Here’s the Canadian site …

Ok, now- sit down and don’t let the hype take over but…

What if I told you that a new Robocop is in the works- but WAIT! it gets better…

It’s actually from the co-writer fo the original Robocop (1987), Ed Neumeier! - but WAIT! it gets even better…

They are going to scrap all that happened after the first one. Yes, Robocop 2 and 3 never happened (also the * shivers * modern reboot)- but WAIT! it gets even BETTER…

Ed Neumeier also wrote “Starship Troopers” and three of its seque… Oh wait.
* Groan *

Well at least he claims that "it’s a little bit more of the old school thing."
Uhm… :thinking: Do we dare hope for some healthy Ultra Violence and Social Criticism?

Well, it can’t possibly be worse than the latest RoboCop remake, am I right? Uh?

Looking forward to this :smiley:

Guys… GUYS… OMG…

GUYS!


Based on this…


#51

Also to reminds us of the good things…

I read ‘A’ book about this some years ago now, called Task Force Dagger - The Hunt For Bin Laden by Robin Moore and was a very good read. Looking forward to seeing this if it’s following the true story.

The plot seemed to loosely follow Horse Soldiers, and while I found the movie very entertaining, including the look and feel, I’m surprised that they didn’t employ better military advisors. For instance, during all of the combat, I believe that I saw only one mag change. Sort of like a spaghetti western. And, if memory serves, while they did assault Taliban positions on horseback, it wasn’t after they had been pummeled by B-52s. Certainly didn’t ride through a bunch of functioning tanks and BDRs. I kept thinking, why don’t they shoot the horses?

With that in mind, there is probably enough good story there, to make it worth taking in at a good theater. I used the phrase “good theater”, because lately some of my experiences have been awful. Like a Regal 24 near me that has really bad, but incredibly expensive food, no beer/wine, and has the volume level during the previews and adds at excruciating levels. What don’t theater owners get when patrons begin showing up with hearing protection? Probably a whole other topic :slight_smile:

The Punisher caught me by surprise a few weeks ago …

I’m lovin’ it.


#55

Very good series … Can’t wait for the second season of Jessica Jones as well


#56

OMG, there’s literally EVERY videogame character in there! :star_struck:


#57

Also this!


Cheesy but lovable!

#58

I read the book and enjoyed it, but I’m really, really not looking forward to the movie at all.


#59

I can understand… but still- how cool the trailer is!?


#60

Well, with my son’s name being Kai and all…you can bet we are going. And buying the t-shirt…!
