Check out Willis in In Country and Nobody's Fool. The guy has some serious chops, but he sleepwalks through crap like Armageddon to support a lifestyle.
One of the funnest movies we saw in theater was Death Wish 3 with Charles Bronson.
"It's my car."
And the shoot em up comic book at the end is like John Woo's The Killer with Chow Yun-Fat, but funny.
Still laughing. I read on imdb the following plot outline-"On board a flight over the Pacific Ocean, an assassin, bent on killing a passenger who's a witness in protective custody, let loose a crate full of deadly snakes."
I just saw Flight Plan. Maybe this one will be even better.
"A shame he doesn't leave that offer open for our soldiers as well.. Oh well."
I'm pretty sure they could not accept that legally. If so, they would start, in effect, working for other people.
Something about watching Blind Date made me sick to my stomach.
Probably hit too close to home. You must have had a bad blind date, too, but one that didn't turn out well in the end.
Me, I cringed a bit too much to really enjoy it all the way through. My husband thought it was hysterical.
I'll bet they're going to pervert this book, too, to advance their agenda.
Seriously, how is Flight Plan?
I've read that some of the suicide bombers that are caught before denotating are drugged, and that they often turn and talk easily because they are so disillusioned by their experience...that they came to fight Americans and then are drugged to kill themselves while blowing up other Muslims.
Well, it's a bit of Die Hard (set in a plane) with a few cups of Panic Room sprinkled in for good measure. Basically, nothing new, but still an okay flick.
I chuckled aloud at a scene wherein the bad guy gets a fire extinguisher to the head... if that tells you anything. :)
LOL. Yeah, save that stuff for the smokey back room.
Isn't there already a $10 million dollar reward?
Oh I give him plenty of acting credit.
Here's Willis in an '88 Playboy interview excerpt on both Nicholson and DeNiro:
PLAYBOY: What movie actors do you model yourself after?
WILLIS: Al Pacino and Robert De Niro-the less-is-more school, the behavior as opposed to the presentation of the work. Dog Day Afternoon was an amazing film. Scar face was a brilliant movie, one of Pacino's best. De Niro in The Deer Hunter; there's a scene where they are up in the mountains and he holds up this fucking shell and says, "Hey this is this, ain't nothin' else.
From now on, you're on your own." It was mystical to me. I wanted to know that guy with that line. His work continually amazes me, how hard he strives to create a living, breathing person in each role. I would like to be directed by him. And Jack Nicholson is enormous. I would like to play a part of the same stature as the one he played as Eugene O'Neill in Reds. I think Sean Penn's work is really honest, and he strives not to repeat himself. I like actors who don't always make safe choices. Bill Hurt is a great example, and he pulls it off. Robert Duvall. Meryl Streep is the greatest living actor that America has, man or woman. Her stuff exemplifies what's important to me in acting.
Up to $25 mil for UBL and up to $25 mil for Zarqawi already being offered.
Always fun to see the bad guys goin' down.
Yippee kai yo kai yeh, MFer.
Good post. THANKS!
I'd agree with him on everyone there except Streep. Jennifer Jason Leigh is much better, but given no credit because she doesn't play the role of "artist."
The thing is, like a lot of people from the 1980s, he's probably going to blow it. People who found success during that decade became cynical regardless of how much talent they had. The thing about Pacino, DeNiro, etc. is they came of age in the 60s and remained "true believers."
But at the end of the day, people won't remember that he had his own plane. They'll just remember what's on the screen.
oh yeah, the Clint Eastwood school of acting: Just just do something, stand there.
So Bruce offered a million bucks.
I'll offer a six-pack of Schlitz for Chavez.
If you get video of him bawling like a baby, I'll up it to a 12-pack.
