Meh.  Not even Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis could save this film.  Itís as insipid, irrelevant and insignificant as Rise Of The Cobra.

Enjoyed seeing the first three of these again and the last one for the first time.  Laughed at all of them because horror films donít scare me.

I spent this past holiday weekend visiting my best friend in Taunton, Dan.  We became friends way back in the 6th grade and I consider him my brother.  Itís been a while since Iíve been to Taunton and it was a great visit.  I first began visiting on a semi-regular basis three years ago as Iíd begun my separation from Diana.  Dan, his wife and two kids opened their home to me and I couldnít be more thankful.  Those visits helped me cope with one of the most difficult trials of my life. 

Now that Iím in a new relationship, I vowed to continue visiting when possible.  Sad to say itís not something I kept up with during marriage.  Spending time with my best friend, getting caught up, laughing at many of the old familiar things and stories from the past and new experiences are priceless.

Not only that, but itís far better returning home to Tina & Scooter, rather than roommates which was, essentially, alone.

I hope everybody had a great weekend. 🙂

Wow, I havenít gone out of my way to see a horror movie since Hannibal in 2001 and prior to that, Halloween 5 in 1989.  Iím not a fan of the genre, but made an exception for my smokiní hot date that night in the 80ís.  As for Hannibal, Iíd gone to check it out with my then brother-in-law for a couple of reasons.  First, we both enjoyed Silence Of The Lambs very much and second, my then wife and I had been to a church in Italy that appears in the film.  It was exciting to recognize it on the big screen and say, ďHey! I was there!Ē

In one of the early scenes, Hannibal slices open one of his victims and his blood and guts are shown splashing down to the street below, from high above a balcony.  I couldnít stop laughing!  I was cracking up into the next scene, thinking I might be asked to leave. 

So, aside from it not being a preferred movie genre, my reaction to that scene sealed my fate with respect to seeing horror films.  ...Until now.

For the past few years ...hmm, since experiencing separation and then divorce, along with some other unpleasant situations, Iíve considered revisiting the genre on the big screen. 

As it turns out, The Nun was a perfect choice.  I did react as I had anticipated, but didnít laugh so loud as to disrupt the other patrons.  My ex-wifeís Uncle Andy was curious, too and we decided to see it last night.  We both enjoyed it very much.  It wasnít an outrageously silly, ridiculous scare fest but there was plenty of blood and gore.  Just enough to whet my appetite for more. 

Not sure Iíll be seeing a lot in the upcoming months, but I may give the latest Halloween film a try.  If youíre into these kinds of films, I recommend The Nun.

I'm not familiar with the other film, but that "Peppermint" movie looked terrible to me and Jennifer Garner seemed to be an odd choice for that type of film. Why did you like it?

It was just a good, basic action film.  Nothing spectacular, but entertaining enough.

For me, the first 3 Dirty Harry stand alone the strongest in the series, a perfect trilogy.  Time has not been good to Sudden Impact, but justifiably so.  Regardless, it holds a special place in my heart because itís the first Dirty Harry film Iíd seen on the big screen upon initial release.  I saw it twice and remember enjoying it very much both times.

You know a movie is bad when Slash looks more interested than Eastwood in the movie.

Yes because by 1992, before Unforgiven, Eastwood films were losing money on an annual basis.  Five years is a very long dry spell.  Clint had been in the business since the 1950ís and a major popular, profitable and successful star beginning in the mid-60ís. 

His tour de force of Unforgiven, followed by In The Line Of Fire killed that rumor mill.

General Discussion / The Dead Pool & Bird 30 Year Anniversaries
« on: August 26, 2018, 04:32:55 PM »
I read that The Dead Pool made a profit of $7MM (million).  Not bad.  Not great, really, but not bad. 

Bird, however, lost $7MM.  Not good.  For the amount of money Warner Brothers invested in these two films, they wound up breaking even. 

The following year, they would lose approximately $7MM on Pink Cadillac. 

In 1990 White Hunter, Black Heart lost approximately $22MM!  The Rookie made $11MM.  So, another bad year, with a total loss of $11MM.  No wonder Eastwood retirement rumors were abound.  The six year dry spell ended in 1992 with Unforgiven.
