Oh, man.  That opening is hard to take.  "I don't want to die!..."  Eeeeeeesssssh.  :o

Yeah but it perks up after that lol.  Actually it'd make a good 'thrills-on-a-hill' double feature with "Vertical Limit", another one of my guilty pleasure flicks.

Agreed.  "Bring it!"  ;D

Watched Logan tonight.  Not your typical super-hero fare.  Very bleak, loads of gore, and many f bombs.  It was quite adeptly directed and acted.  Just weird to see Patrick Stewart's Professor X hurling out f bombs.  Realistic though as his character is 90ish and experiencing the onset of dementia and brain deterioration.  As for Logan, his health is deteriorating as well due to adamantium poisoning occurring in his body.  Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart deliver excellent performances.  I don't want to give away the ending but this is Hugh Jackman's final performance as Wolverine and the ending is appropriate.  It was a good film in the fact that the plot was good but I left the film somewhat sad as did much of the audience.  I'm giving it 3.75 stars out of 5.  Probably the best X-men film and maybe the best superhero film of the 2000's though I like Raimi's Spiderman.

There was a nice nod to Shane, the classic Western, in this movie with several clips being played as Professor X and a mutant child watch the film on tv.

Sounds perfect! Can't wait!

Not sure this is the right thread since its not a movie. But what the hey. I've always been a rebel

HBO announced the Game of Thrones season 7 premiere date via Facebook Live this afternoon, a day after revealing the season 7 teaser poster. The show will return to HBO on July 16th, 2017, much to the mixed “love” and “angry” reactions of many. This will be the show’s penultimate season, and the cast is excited and sad to prepare to wrap the show, as they immediately set to work on seasons 7 and 8.Season 7 will contain seven episodes, while eight will contain six.

Sundance has a new series called Hap and Leonard. Looks promising.

Saw "Kong: Skull Island" the other day. I enjoyed it. CGI was good, I normally don't like it but for monster movies it can be ok, and plot was ok. Funny at times and some of the creatures were pretty disgusting/scary. Definitely a "modern" version in the themes and lead woman's role. I will say, warning triggering sexism here, the lead woman was no Fay Wray!! (Or even Naomi Watts or Jessica Lang) and a very different dynamic/politics in this reboot of the tale. But a good movie and I enjoyed it. I imagine there will be some sequels.

The High Court on Comedy Central. I just discovered it last week, and was pleasantly surprised.

The Twonky on Comet earlier tonight.

I can buy thousands of objects sporting the Nike logo, but I can't seem to find a legitimate sales point offering Comet gear.  I want an orange shirt with that flying saucer on it, damn it.

A while back, Comet released shirts as promo gifts or prizes in contests but I couldn't find a normal store on the website.

I also like that robot.  And the ray gun.  And the astronaut.  And the space capsule.

I'm becoming such a Comet whore.

I noticed earlier tonite an intriguing line-up of offbeat flicks I've never even heard of.  I'm becoming a fan myself, however, I am miffed.  I tried watching the highly regarded Bubba Ho-tep the other nite, and found to my dismay they were bleeping out, and not even dubbing, the salty language.  I can only hope this is not a standard practice on this otherwise esteemed channel.   :-\

Unfortunately, that kind of extreme editing seems to be the standard for Comet and the other retro stations I get. I even saw a movie where the naughty bits of a (presumably) nude statue on a bookshelf in the background of a scene were blurred out, FFS. It's like Bill Donohue is the head of standards and practices for all of them.

Ah, yes.  The ironic world of the FCC's control regarding OTA broadcasting.  In Bubb Ho-Tep, it was completely fine to let Reggie come out to the smoking nurse and talk about an enema, but God forbid Elvis is allowed to speak more graphically about that growth on his pecker.

They completely removed some scenes, too, not just audio.

Which did hurt the film.  Between Joe Lansdale's writing and Coscarelli's screen writing adaptation, the film was greased with off color comments.  Censoring knocked it off balance because it messed up the timing - and some of it seemed to go beyond FCC requirements.

However, I am glad that Comet even gave it a shot.

The REAL hidden treasure embedded in Bubba Ho-Tep is the DVD commentary, given by you know who.  Given that most people believe him to be dead, that's all I will say.  But what l will say is that it gave me chills when the commentator explained what Bruce Campbell got wrong with his Elvis impersonation.

Anyway, I gleefully look forward to Comet attempting to navigate The Devil in Miss Jones.

The commentary by BC as EP is brilliant indeed!

...However, I am glad that Comet even gave it a shot...

Comet's turning into my oddball sci-fi, horror, "what-the-hell-is-this?" dream channel.  "Attack of the Puppet People," "Static," "Killer Klowns from Outer Space," ... it just keeps getting better by digging into the past for the best and the worst.  Bubba Ho-Tep?  Wow, I'll take any version of what I can get, compared to my odds of getting anything like it elsewhere, all without paying a dime.  I'm starting to have flashbacks to "MonsterVision" and Joe Bob Briggs.  Now, bring me some Debby Harry via "Videodrome," and some Deborah Goodrich, courtesy of "Remote Control."  Stat!  Comet, you're working it!



P.S. -  Eh, we could use some new MST3K episodes.  I can only watch "Attack of the Giant Leeches" maybe a dozen more times.

Just watched Dark City.  The movie left me a bit depressed and wondering who the hell Kiefer Sutherland was trying to ape in his role as the good doctor.  I want to say Peter Lorre but if that is the case then it is the worst Lorre imitation ever.  I can't rate this film yet as I'm still letting it sink in.

Strangely enough, I just watched it for the first time myself the other night. I thought it was brilliant. The unnerving sense of uncertainty about the time period (and place, for that matter) was a trick also employed recently in It Follows and probably a bunch of other films I can't think of. It reminded me of Metropolis too.

I always thought that is why you named your show Dark City? (After the Dark Weekend phase.) Funny you didn't see movie before- I also was wondering about copyright issues as you were, I think?
ps: more Dark Weekend City shows

According to an attorney I spoke to, the copyright issue only comes into play when there's brand confusion.

And you know who suggested I rename it Dark City? Batchelor.

I just watched The Big Kahuna with Spacey and Devito and some other dude. I'd give it a 2.5 out of 5, meaning I enjoyed it about as much as anything I've ever watched while fucked out with a toothache and tylenol3. The best part was at the end when they played this dealeo, which I'd never previously heard. I disagree about suncreen though. I've never touched the stuff, except for putting it on chicks.
