But what was the story? Just weird.

 

He gets ill...they take him in to train him....then try to kill him.

 

Am i missing something.

Deadpool is told that his cancer will be cured, which is why he agrees to go with the 'recruiter' ... Francis tries to activate Deadpool's mutant genes, and when that doesn't work, tries to kill him (at which point, the genes ARE activated.) This is what leaves Deadpool scarred. The rest of the story is Deadpool hunting Francis as he thinks that Francis can cure him (and so give him the chance to return to a normal life with his girlfriend.) At the end of the film, Deadpool is told by Francis that there is no cure ... so Deadpool kills Francis.

 

Okay, so it's not Coppola or Scorcese, but I still liked it ;)

Well thats not strictly true is it cos Francis was threatening him from the moment he met him.

 

 

That's so we know that Francis is the bad guy ;)

"Lady Cocoa" aka "Pop Goes The Weasel" (1975)

Cheap blaxploitation saga starring 70s lounge singer Lola Falana as a high maintenance gal who's holed up in a swanky casino hotel under police protection, as she prepares to testify against her mobster ex boyfriend. While she romances her hunky cop escort (who looks like Lionel Richie), some hit men eventually arrive courtesy of her old flame, and the chase is on.

This pic was dreadfully dull - almost nothing happens for its first hour! - and though Falana's nice to look at, her character is such a whiny, loudmouthed beeyotch that after awhile I was rooting for the bad guys! Ignore, delete, destroy.

Meh

I had the same impression until my daughter wanted me to get the "R" version, we did and as it paints a more complete picture and is superior to thePG-13 version that ran in the theaters.

 

Sure its no Gone With the Wind but it has its moments.

"Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood" (1988)

https://youtu.be/YuibEQny_d4

It's a showdown at Camp Crystal Lake when Jason crosses paths with a troubled teenage girl who has telekinetic powers (ala "Carrie"). Finally, someone who can give him a good fight!

The seventh installment in the never ending horror series sticks to the tried and true franchise formula for most of its run time (i.e. stereotypical dumb teenagers party, have sex, get killed) but the last fifteen or twenty minutes - when Psychic Chick puts The Big J through the wringer - are some of my favorite moments in the entire "F13" saga. This is one of the few "Friday" movies that I'm not totally sick of.

"Scream Blacula Scream" (1973)



The African vampire is resurrected by a voodoo spell in this sequel to "Blacula," and he proceeds to chomp on a whole lot of people while trying to persuade a priestess (Pam Grier) to help him regain his lost humanity.

This silly but watchable blaxploitation horror has dated terribly of course, but it's worth seeing just for the performance by the late William Marshall as the vampire - the rest of the cast seems to be camping it up but he plays Blacula completely straight and intimidating, plus his deep bass voice is totally bad-ass. Cool retro stuff.

"Atlantic Rim" (2013)

 

When giant monsters rise from the bottom of the ocean and menace the East Coast, mankind's only hope is a squad of giant robots piloted by humans, including David Chokachi of "Baywatch" and rapper "Treach" of Naughty By Nature.

...in case the title (and the Z-list casting) didn't give it away immediately, this was the Asylum's cheese-and-crackers budget version of "Pacific Rim," complete with the usual terrible acting and laughable CGI effects. Lord knows I love me some giant robot action, but ten minutes into this one I was already wishing that I'd re-watched "Robot Jox" instead.

"Slaughter's Big Rip-Off" (1973)



Sequel to "Slaughter," starring former NFL footballer "Gentleman" Jim Brown as the title tough guy and all around bad-ass. In the first film Slaughter broke up the Mexican Mob, this time it's the Southern California syndicate that wants him dead. (In a bizarre bit of casting against type, the vicious Mob boss is played by ... perennial TV second banana Ed McMahon!) There isn't much plot in this blaxploitation action flick, but a whole lot of honky heads get busted and some fine lookin' ladies take their clothes off so I was suitably entertained. As Slaughter himself might say, "Outasite, baby."

Been doing some binge watching since we are snowed in...

 

Hardcore Henry ~ basically a first person shooter video game movie. No real plot other than running a muck and killing and blowing everything up. Certainly an interesting twist but at the end of the day unless you are a gamer you will see no point.

 

Dumb and Dumber ~ intro'd the kids to Mr Carrey and Mr Daniels epic journey in well dumbness.

 

Maggie's Plan ~ a pathetically dull chick flick that the wife even hated and this should have been right up her Lifetime network alley...

 

National Treasure 1 & 2 ~ these films are really excellent and the kids ate them up like so much ice cream. If you've forgotten they are very Indy Jones light with some Davinci Code mixed in.

 

Bench Warmers ~ Super silly but the kids are enamored by Adam Sandler and company and this is balls deep in that ilk.

With my 9 year old this afternoon:

 

"Zootopia" (2016)
Disney's animated mega-hit about an ambitious country bunny who moves to the Big City of Zootopia and becomes its first-ever rabbit police officer. Her first assignment looks like a standard missing-mammals investigation at first, but soon she and her unwilling sidekick, a con-artist fox, discover that there's something more sinister going on behind the scenes.
It's Disney, so of course this is lushly animated, fast paced, frequently funny, and enjoyable for all ages. The near-constant "everyone is equal, chase your dreams, you can be whatever you want to be" rah-rah messages might come across a bit heavy-handed for grown ups, but the kids won't notice or care.

Jim just annoyed me in Ace Ventura. I'd never seen them so thought i'd give them a go. Both films were only 50p from a local exchange shop. Surprisingly i've not seen many of his other films but i plan to catch a few more when i can. I've seen The Number 23, Batman Forever and Bruce Almighty (which i liked)

I'm working through a list which contains all the films ever to be in the IMDB top 250, another list with Oscar winning pictures and i made of films i've seen as a kid/teen and their sequels i can't really remember

"Gunn" (1967)



Blake "Pink Panther" Edwards directed this "mod" movie update of the late '50s/early '60s "Peter Gunn" TV series, with Craig Stevens reprising his role as the smooth talking, smooth-with-the-ladies private eye. Gunn is hired to determine who murdered a notorious Mob boss, but some hit men sent by the ambitious wanna-be replacement Don want to make sure the crime remains unsolved.

Gunn seems like a cool cat, but this flick was pretty dry and talky, it didn't really get into gear till the last quarter. Interesting in a retro time-capsule sort of way, but not essential viewing by any means.

"Roger Corman's Death Race 2050" (2017)

Start your engines! It's time for the annual cross-country road rally, where colorfully costumed drivers score points based on how many pedestrians they can kill along the way. Reigning champion "Frankenstein" is back, facing off against a new crew of drivers looking to dethrone him. Mucho tongue-in-cheek carnage ensues.
This long overdue sequel/reboot (whatever you want to call it) to the classic 1975 dystopian black comedy is a ton of sick fun, it maintains the vibe of the '75 flick while giving it a 21st century update. Fans of the big-budget and far more serious Jason Statham "reboot" (and its two sequels) probably won't dig it, but if you liked the original you should get a few retro chuckles out of this one as well.

    • Bonfire had dropped off my radar the past decade (someone mentioned an album a year!!!).   This samples I've heard on the forth coming album have drawn my attention once again and hopefully, this is a refreshing new face for the band's music.    Definitely going to grab a copy of the new one  
    • For sure Tim was one of the best and most gentle soul I ever encountered while collecting music.  Loved all the interactions we had over the years, and yes, he certainly was knowledgable as T-Bone pointed out.   Did a number of trades with Tim and of course, when I was active selling on E Bay, he bought CDs from me and discussed many of the titles I was selling.  Just another good person that I enjoyed.
    • these guys show that you can still make an enjoyable song with generic, borderline cheesy lyrics if the other elements are there
    • Wow....thanks for sharing Tony.   Tim was definitely one of the great guys....I can remember when I was active selling on E Bay, Tim would always be talking to me about different titles and, of course, we traded many times as well    I always had Tim pictured as a very gentle soul.....So sorry to hear of his passing from this awful virus in the world....
    • I am one of those who prefer their style on Knock You Down and Sultans over the direction they've gone in with the last few albums.  I thought the initial promo tracks for this one sounded solid so I gave the album a spin.  Not bad, but at the end of the day none of the tracks really grabbed me like those earlier releases.   
    • I liked the first two promo tracks for the new album, but this one not so much.  And as Geoff mentioned, the video clip itself is pretty bad
    • I don't have one favorite film but there are a few that I rewatch on a regular basis.... Die Hard (first 3 flicks) Pirates of the Caribbean (all of them) Home Alone (first 2) Predator Those are the ones that immediately come to mind but there are others....
    • Canada still hasn't hit the apex yet, although they are saying we should hit it over the next few weeks... I expect we will be staying at home for another 6 months at least...I think we will be dealing with this virus until there is a working Vaccine in place which will be until at least Spring 2021 maybe even Summer 2021...a lot of numbers are being thrown around where we could have as many as 25000 deaths before it is done.....we still aren't testing enough to get a real understanding of the spread.....the economy will truly be screwed for years to come...one good thing to come out of this is that Canada will not have to depend on other countries for health care equipment after this virus as we will make sure that we make our own equipment instead of outsourcing it... latest numbers.... Total: 12,954 (18 presumptive, 12,936 confirmed including 214 deaths, 2,502 resolved)
    • I hope you and your wife are doing well.  Those are difficult enough jobs, but I can only imagine what you both are going through during a time like this.   I anticipate this will remain a major concern here in the U.S. at least through the summer.  In areas hardest hit it really overwhelms the hospitals.  The economy was overall in good shape, but we've already seen lots of furloughs and layoffs.  The federal government has unfortunately been playing catch up through most of this and has had to re-evaluate their assessments and action plans often.  Despite warnings for years from health officials, it seems like both the current and last Presidential administration failed to keep a proper inventory of the necessary ppe and emergency medical supplies. The state and local governments have had to manage much of this on their own initially, and all responded differently.  As such some areas of the country may be better off than others by June/July.  While other states will likely have ramifications for months beyond that.  It astonishes me to see people not taking the recommended precautions seriously while others hoarded essentials early on leading to panic buying and stores struggling to keep some items in stock.  I am grateful my family is well and I remain employed, working from home now.  I check in regularly with my parents, mother-in-law and a few, older neighbors. I try to remain calm so my family feels safe. But to add to my general concerns, I was diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer last October.  It's a manageable disease with regular monitoring and treatment, but I am in the high risk category, so my stress level is at a maximum.
