Episode 11 last night was good Ted Lasso. This season has had some more downs than the previous two but last night was vintage quality. You know, vintage Ted Lasso.
too bad the armold went into politics and couldnt make true lies 2PSA-True Lies is now free on Youtube. Not sure how long it will last, they have a tendency to switch the better movies out fast.
First time I've seen it streamed for free. My favorite Arnie movie, and directed by James Cameron. All the major actors do a tremendous job-for Tom Arnold it was the best performance of his career (in all honesty the only time I could tolerate him). Personal rating 9/10.
Hobo With A Shotgun - 6.5/10
Rutger Hauer stars in this cyper-punk horror explotation film. Part of me remembers back to Night of the Comet and the punks in the shopping mall.
The action is nonstop, the kill scenes are epic, blood endlessly pours, the foul mouthed dialogue is never-ending, and its all ridiculously over the top in every way.
Director nailed his imagery as it never strays from its intended path and does not devolve into a satirical flic.
They're not supposed to be all stupid. Compare to, say, Loki in The Avengers. He wasn't able to think ahead to how he'd be received in the end - not as a king - which is doing one stupid thing. But he was extremely clever at every step.Well, villains are supposed to do something stupid in almost every movie with a good guy. That's how the good guy wins.
White Men Can't Jump (2023)
This movie isn't all bad. It was semi entertaining. The acting was bad though and the story was pretty stupid as well. The thing that gets me though is why was it even called White Men Can't Jump? It really has nothing to do with the original story at all, aside from hustling in California. But there is just so much to it that is different than the original one that it didn't make sense to name it that. They also force a bunch of stupid race "jokes" and comments which just seem so out of place. But like I said, it still kept me interested and entertained for most of it. The basketball scenes in general was not very well done either. I really only watched it out of curiosity knowing it would not hold anything to the original one.
Eh, I wouldn't call it a remake at all after seeing it.
They basically stole the name for a movie that is somewhat about street ball hustling.
