Originally uploaded by macslost.

With the last batch of sadly-un-aborted projects these two have been spewing out, getting excited about something either of them are attached too is asking quite a lot. (though I hear Talladega Nights is excellent). But when you actually put them in something INTERESTING, and not crotch-kicking/weave-pulling/yuk-yuk cretinous trash, you may see something amazing. Plus, when you add the likes of Emma Thomson, Dustin Hoffman and Maggie Gyllenhaal, you can pretty much guarantee it. Check this out.

If you thought this summer was pretty entertaining, wait til September-November rock your face off. (oddly, December is really only sporting about 3 flicks of interest at the moment.)

R.I.P. Mako

R.I.P. Mako
Originally uploaded by macslost.
I became a fan of Mako when I was very little. With repeated viewings of The Island at the Top of the World on both TV and the Read-Along book & record, to this day I catch myself muttering "They come, they come, we go" from time to time when taking my leave of places.

Mako was 'that guy' in tons and tons of TV shows and movies. When I finally did learn his name, I was impressed. 'Mako', one word, like the shark. That's it. That was awesome.

The funny thing is that while I know who he is, if I didn't check imdb, I would only be able to say that he was in Pearl Harbor (pictured) and 'Island'. Upon further exploration, he had a guest starring role on pretty much every popular TV show of the 60's, 70's and 80's, all of which I saw, since my childhood was made up largely of reruns from these decades.

He was in I Dream of Jeanie, McHale's Navy, Gidget, I Spy, The Green Hornet, F Troop, The Time Tunnel, The Big Valley, Hawaii 5-O, Wonder Woman, Kung Fu, Mannix, The Incredible Hulk, Columbo, MASH, Fantasy Island, The Facts of Life, Spencer For Hire, Quincy M.E., Voyagers!, Magnum P.I., The Greatest American Hero, The A-Team, Tour of Duty, and The Equalizer.

His movie role appearances were just as wide. Of my favorites were Under the Rainbow ( a CLASSIC, still unreleased on DVD. seriously, it's Chevy Chase investigating a murder on the set of Wizard of Oz. which means tons and tons of midgets, Billy Barty of course being one of them. the villain to be exact.) and of course both Conan the Barbarian & Destroyer as the mad wizard Akiro.

The nineties were not as kind to Mako, leaving him to things like Robocop 3, Highlander 3, Sidekicks and some TV appearances on Frasier and JAG. Entering the new millennium at the age of 67 his appearances became spread over time in such things as Samurai Jack, Monk, Walker, Texas Ranger, Charmed, 7th Heaven, Duck Dodgers and The West Wing and a few films including Pearl Harbor, Bulletproof Monk and Memoirs of a Geisha.

Needless to say, the man was mighty and was a large part of my childhood, oddly enough.

He will be missed.

Kurt @*#&$@ Russell...is BACK

Kurt @*#&$@ Russell...is BACK
Originally uploaded by macslost.
It's no secret that I love Kurt Russell. He's a man who has earned it, time and time again.

I became a fan at a young age when he starred in Disney's Dexter Reilly series (The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes, Now You See Him, Now You Don't, etc.) and the Barefoot Executive.

He broke the Disney run with the role of Charles Joseph Whitman, the college-campus sniper in The Deadly Tower. After that, roles in Elvis & Used Cars separated him further from his Mousey beginnings.

But what made Kurt Russell my hero was his infamous role of Snake Plissken in John Carpenter's Escape From N.Y., a true sci-fi/apocalyptic dream. Shortly after that, Kurt starred in The Thing (named 'Mac', no less) and after that his career took off. Amidst comedies and dramas he continued to rule the screen in every genre pick he starred in.

Big Trouble In Little China, Tombstone, Stargate, Executive Decision and even the not-so loved Escape From L.A., Soldier and Tango & Cash (classic action schlock at it's finest. I mean, grenade-down-the-pants awesome)

After those, he had a 3-year hiatus and returned with a small role in Cameron Crowe's Vanilla Sky (which I dug), and the crapfest 3000 Miles To Graceland (while the whole film was a wreck, I choose to blame Costner and Slater for that)

He had an amazing turn as a violent cop in Dark Blue, (a surprise from director Ron Shelton, who tends to specialize in , well, crapfests like Play It To The Bone and Hollywood Homicide) and then returned to Disney for 2 back-to-back winners, Miracle an Sky High, a stupid horse movie no one saw and the unnecessary, but fun to watch Poseidon remake.

But the whole point of this story is that the Kurt Russell I know and love is Snake Plissken. It's Mac MacReady. It's ol' Jack Burton. It's Wyatt Earp. It's Jack O'Neill.

And now? It's Stuntman Mike.

Who's that, you say?

It's Mike. Who's a stuntman. And a serial killer. Or slasher, if you will.

In what, you ask?

Oh, hunting down Rosario Dawson in a little film piece called DEATH PROOF, directed by QUENTIN @*&$#*&# TARANTINO. This DEATH PROOF is part of a movie called GRIND HOUSE, a 2-part movie, where the first part is called PLANET TERROR, a post-apocalyptic zombie flick starring Michael Biehn and Jeff Fahey and directed by Robert Rodriguez. Can you feel the glory?

The King has returned.

(even though he's not playing Elvis in this one. the last time he played Elvis was as the voice of Elvis in Forrest Gump. but he did play an Elvis look-a-like in the aforementioned crapfest 3000 Miles to Graceland)

Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? Gary Oldman? (he can play Joker and Gordon. I have faith). Well, I guess I reserve judgement, but damn. Damn.

And to add to the madness, WB has decided that it's next 2 projects will actually be Deadman and Doom Patrol. Really?! Um, again,m I say 'OK'. You'd better get a damn good writer for Doom Patrol. That's some bizarre shoes to fill. As for Deadman, he's such a lame character, this had better be a comedy. And leave the costume OUT. What'd he do, steal Daredevil's costume while he was asleep and stick Iron Fist's collar on it before sneaking off with Robin's shoes?


*sigh* Well, if my luck holds out, we'll have a Blue Devil/Creeper/Ambush Bug movie soon. And no, no it doesn't matter which one.

(and yes. yes I spent less than 5 minutes making my Ledger-Joker, so it's not very pretty.)

Steve Miner, director of fine things like Lake Placid, House and Friday the 13th 2 & 3 (Remember? 3-D? Where Jason gets the hockey mask!) will be directing a revamped version of Day of the Dead! Which will be a sequel to the completely rad Dawn of the Dead flick from 2 years ago! Ving Rhames returns! Along with newbie meat-candies Mena Suvari and Nick Cannon.

The film (if it's at all like the original) takes place in a military bunker full of asshole soldiers. There's zombie torturing as well, which, of course, gets out of hand and then everyone is pretty much screwed. A damn fine film, though. I hope they keep Bub in it. Please, please, please? (one of the scientists keeps a zombie on a leash and trains him. here's a picture of Bub pretending to read. isn't he cute?)


(NOTE: Please don't look up the remaider of Steve Miner's career. It will make you cringe.)

You, sir, are a dick. And you suck.

So apparently there's this book called The Other Boleyn Girl, about Ann Boleyn and her sister Mary and their marriages/affairs with King Henry the VIII and there's head-lopping and sex and all that, right?

Eric Banner is playing Henry (who's a dick for real, but this isn't why Eric's one). The reason ERIC is a dick is that he gets to make out with BOTh sisters.

Played by Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson.

You. Bastard.

The Not- So- Modern- Functioning- Alcoholic- Nurses Convention

Well, 3 weeks later, and here's my tale of the Modern Drunkard Convention. The road trip out was great (once we got out of 2pm LA traffic, which is ungodly.) and me & Alf pulled in to downtown Vegas around, what 9? I don't remember.

Now, I've never BEEN to downtown Vegas. In fact, I didn't even know that it was just past the end of the strip there. I imagined it was over a hill or something. And when I saw the little strip in downtown Vegas it suddenly clicked that I have seen a million movie scenes shot there, and it felt right.

Now, before we attend the convention, we need some libations to 'catch up' since clearly, the drunks that are already here are probably wasted by now, right? Plus we haven't eaten. SO! Off to some Bayou place for a yard of a mixed drink concoction that had Everclear in it. Alf of course made sure that we got 'extra' shots in it. Because the 9 liquors already in it weren't enough. After that it's off to the 99 cent hotdog stand! We down a few of those while drinking our yard of doom and then head over to the convention.

Now, here's where the 'convention' starts to become suspect. This is Vegas, right? So you can bring whatever drink you want into any place you want. And HERE, the damn security guard told us "NO OUTSIDE BEVERAGES". Soooo, we CAN'T bring booze to the "Modern Drunkard Convention". OK. Strike One.

At this point, this is the only real strike against the event. We head in (after finishing our yards while eating more 99 cent hotdogs) and check out the scene. It hasn't really started yet, so we mingle around a bit and meet some interesting characters like Danni and his giant glass (pictured above) and his friend (whose name I can't remember but he looked like David Spade only more 80s), who also had a giant glass. We met the editor of the Drunkard magazine who's idea the event was. There was some artists and a few liquor sampling tables where we were forced to drink weird concoction things.

It's about this time where, after a few samplings, some beers and that yard of doom we drank, things get a little hazy.

What I do remember: The bands sucked the biggest donkey balls you can imagine, I think I took a short nap in a bathroom stall, and there weren't a lot of people there.

Next thing I know it was Saturday morning, and neither of us know how we got back to the hotel. So, night one was a little weak, but night TWO, that's when the fun events start and the bands are better! OK then!

We still have a day to burn, so we head over the Mandalay Bay pool. On the way, we stop at some saloon where people from the convention are supposed to hang when not at the ballroom.

This place, the Double Down Saloon, was the most gloriously nasty dive bar of all dive bars. It was painted black, with crap everywhere. It was truly nasty, in the most awesome way. A place with ancient crusty signs hand-made by staff that say "Puke Insurance $20", because, see, if you throw up in the bar, they hand you a mop and bucket to clean it up. The couch in the bar seriously has springs stinking out of it, like they picked it up at the dump (they might have). Anyway, as the bartender regaled us with stories of vomit and nasty drinks, and a local chick, who was rather entertaining, mercilessly mocked me as a 'newbie' and more or less goaded me into drinking their 2nd specialty drink: a bacon martini. (now, their first drink is ass-juice, but no. no.) Well, I'll tell ya, it tasted like bacon. And the Vodka in it was surprisingly smooth. And yes, I did drink the whole thing. And promptly chased it with beer. I think I kept tasting it until I got to the Mandalay pool and had a margarita. (note: anyone can walk into the Mandalay pool area if they want to. And it was about 117 degrees, so we didn't hang out for long. And I lost my sunglasses. Dammit.)

Night two!

We went in with a few drinky-drinks in us already (since I guess we'd been drinking since noon) and bore witness to what was about to become an extreme disappointment on a massive scale. Since the post seems to be becoming a run on story, I'm going to break it down bullet-point-style:

#1 - We're surrounded by old dudes. Ugly dudes. Who dress badly. BADLY.


#2 - WE'RE the drunks. Everyone else is NURSING.

#3 - We realized that the 'sponsors' of the event are the same 2 booths serving those freaky liquors, and some bad artists.

#4 - The 'burlesque' dancing was god-awful. (note: having 'big boobs' isn't something to be boasting about when you weigh 450 pounds)

#5 - The 'drinking' contest. Here's where my faith in this event died a brutal, gruesome death in the vein of Final Destination or Saw. Four asswipes volunteer for a drinking game. The game? A waitress will put down a shot in front of each of them, they have to shoot it and identify it. First one to get it right wins. I'm not going to go into a lot of detail on this because it makes me angry, but here's how it goes: Waitress puts down the shot, they shoot it and here's the responses from the contests EACH TIME (and it was the same if the shot was clear OR brown)


THEY HAD NO IDEA WHAT IT WAS. HOW, I say, HOW do you confuse GIN with ANYTHING BUT GIN?! These people were assholes. And that's the crowd we were with.

We were pretty much done with the convention at this point. We did free shots with the liquor girl again and went back out to the strip. Again, the haziness interferes with exact details, but we ended up buying these giant inflatable hammers (I got Spider-Man, Alf got Superman) and proceeded to pound each other and innocent bystanders into oblivion up and down the downtown strip, a la the Giant Chicken Vs. Peter fight in The Family Guy.

Chicken vs. Peter

At some point we went back in to the convention to pummel the rest of the attendees for being asses and probably got kicked out, but neither of us remember. Plus, according to Alf, there were more 99 cent hotdogs and shrimp cocktails in there somewhere.

Oh, yeah! There was a dude with an ACTUAL PEG LEG. That was pretty sweet.

a pirate!

So, all in all, it was THE WORST convention I had ever been to in my entire life, but it was also probably the MOST fun I have had in Vegas. Go figure. Except I woke up Sunday morning with the most painful charlie-horse in my leg that I have EVER had and the screen on my cell phone was broken. So I have to get a new one. The price of glory, I guess.

(oddly enough, I can find NO mention whatsoever of the convention on the Modern Drunkard website now. I think we ruined it for them. In our defense, they ruined it for us, first.)

Not a lot of horror flicks scare me. Sure, there's that bit of tension when the music builds, but it's more about wondering how creatively/gorily the villain will dispatch his prey.

This movie I watched by myself in the dark at home and man, I was tensed up for about 90 minutes straight. It's GOOD, gory and creepy as FUCK. Since it is British, and as a rule, foreign films tend to challenge their audiences with an ending that isn't quite 'hunky-dory' in Wal-Merica terms, the ending will probably be somewhat edited, but it wouldn't change the plot at all.

Anyway, check it out. (and how BADASS is that poster?)

Oh, right, basic premise. 6 adventure chicks go spelunking. Enter creatures. Run, battle, death, death, battle, run, yadda. The nice thing is that the chick's characters are really well developed, have interesting character interactions/histories and none of them are whiny, they get shit done.

Here's the lenticular poster for Spider-Man 3. (lenticular posters are the ones that change when you move from side-to-side). It switches from Spider-Man to Venom and back.

If you haven't see the trailer yet, you SHOULD. It's going to be AMAZING. Spidey, Eddie Brock, Gwen Stacy, Sandman, Venom, Green Goblin 2 (is he good or bad?), DEATHS (and not just villains this time!), evil Peter Parker (seriously, black-slimy suits are not good for the heart & soul).

My personal opinion is that the amazing glut of comic book movies started out too fast, with a lot of execs going for the effects and not the story, the Daredevil/ Elektra/ Catwoman/ Fantastic Four run got pretty well ripped up cuz they were WEAK in the story department. Then Constantine, Batman Begins, V For Vendetta, Superman Returns come back and pretty much knock it out of the park. X3 wasn't what I wanted it to be, but if you pretend it's just the immediate continuation of X2 (which while good, I thought the ending was anticlimactic), it works. Amazing Screw-On Head just got an awesome animated treatment on Sci-Fi, Jon Favreau is gonna rock Iron Man and from what I read, they are putting a lot more story in FF2, beefing up Mr. Fantastic's role and actually having the balls to put in something as grand as Silver Surfer and Galactus. (Galactus is basically this GIGANTIC robot-esque dude that EATS PLANETS).

In short, the Spidey 3 teaser made my toes curl and I can't wait til next summer.

(I reserve judgment on Ghost Rider, even though the trailer looked fun)

You'll have to excuse my slapshod compilation of random bloggings here. I keep a running list of things I want to blog, and then as time passes, I move things around that are timely in nature and leave older things behind. (notice I still haven't done a Vegas recap, no worries, it's on the way. promise) Point: Superman Returns is old news, but here's my 2, no, 3 cents on it:

Cent #1 - Kate Bosworth, you are a lame, lame, lame Lois Lane. You shouldn't even have used her name, you were so not Lois Lane.

Cent #2 - Lex Luthor and his "Technology" (pictured here). Um, seeing as all of his ranting about technology ultimately resulted in growing a crystal island (and last I checked, you can buy little crystal farms at Rite-Aid), it left something to be desired.

Cent #3 - This is petty, but why waste Kal Penn's comedic ability as a henchman that does nothing but stare at things? Tara Reid could have done that.

Everything else was super sweet, kick-ass, and I can't WAIT for the DVD, and I was REALLY impressed with James Marsden's character. So it still gets a thumbs up in my book, it's just these few glaring little middle fingers that were a tad annoying.


My Pirates 2 recap!

It's a fun, fun, fun movie with great action and effects. It was a little TOO gag-heavy, though. Almost to the point of C3-PO in the 'Clones' flick where the robot heads get switched and it's 'funny'. You know what I mean. Those jokes that are SO contrived for humor's sake that they aren't funny? There were some in P2, but the jokes AROUND the gag were still funny, so it was forgiveable. Plus, the ENTIRE movie was just a set up for P3, so nothing at all gets resolved.

OK, so over my 10-day hiatus, we went and saw a bunch of movies. A Prairie Home Companion, Devil Wears Prada, Scanner Darkly and Strangers With Candy. The last two being WELL worth your time. Devil's pretty entertaining, too.

ANYWAY. We saw Strangers With Candy at the Laemmle Sunset 5. Which to some degree I always thought was supposed to be the only good indie theater in the Hollywood area. I don't know WHY I thought that. Apparently it's more like the home for crap no one wants! Well, at least it's headed that way. Seriously.

This movie looks like ASS.

Unfortunately, it also has some good reviews, so I might have to actually watch it. On DVD of course. For free. While surfing the internet. Drunk.

After I left for Vegas I got sick and then went into a 10-day forced vacation (had too many stockpiled, not a bad problem to have). During which I did...absolutely nothing. Not even blog. Obviously.

No, seriously. I did nothing. Well, I finished The Adventures of Kavalier & Clay (which if you haven't read, you should, it's fantastic), played Call of Duty 2, Destroy All Humans, Red Faction 2 and Black, watch some DVDs (real crappy ones like The Cavern), TV like Deadwood, Dead Zone, Blade and 4400 (seriously, though, Blade is actually pretty good. surprisingly) and dinked around online. But not blogging.

Well I'm back! All reguvenated and shit. Excercising, party-planning, working on our trip to Australia and some secret work plans which involved some crossed fingers (so if you could cross yours as well, I'd appreciate it)

Anyway! On with the blogging! I'll probably fill this page UP!
