  1. Perla selling Slash memorabilia

    Do you think that Moonman was the same Moonnman that Slash claims he lost in taxi-cab in his book? It's so insignificant to Slash, that he plum forgot that he never even lost it...
  2. Bill and Ted 3

    Still one of my all time favorite line in a movie: "I totally possessed my dad!"
  3. Terminator - Dark Fate

    Sadly, I don’t think the full-on future war movie will ever happen - again. Cameron said in an interview shortly after he got involved with this one, that he never really found the future war interesting. For him, it was something to show in vignette. It was there to remind the viewers of the consequence of failure. Now that Cameron pretty much owns Terminatpr again, the chances of seeing a war movie are null. Salvation really, really blew that chance. Its too bad, because that was the Terminator film most fans were anticipating. A future war with Christian Bale: take all my money. How could that not be stellar? Ha!
  4. Terminator - Dark Fate

    There's so many elements from the poor Terminator sequels that seem to be reappearing in Dark Fate
  5. Terminator - Dark Fate

    The plot leaks are all over the internet. You can seek them out, if you'd like. For me personally, I just couldn't wait six months to find out. John Connor's curtain call isn't the only radical change being made to Terminator. It seems like the events of T2 really did change the nature of the future, because what remains, we won't recognize.
  6. Apocalypse Now - Final Cut (cinema re-release)

    It's my favorite film so I don't care what scenes are padding out the run-time, i'm just thrilled I get to see it on the big screen for the first time in my life! Lord knows I'm going to see it with a healthy dose of psychedelics in my system, the way Coppola intended.
  7. The best haunted house movie you've never seen.

    The best haunted house movie never seen? The Changeling (1980) It’s frequently listed as one of the most chilling films ever made. Admirers include Stephen King and Martin Scorsese. https://www.google.com/amp/s/ew.com/movies/2018/08/02/the-changeling-blu-ray-peter-medak/amp/
  8. Terminator - Dark Fate

    Terminator, if in concept only, was always about John Connor. Not John Connor the character - but John Connor the legend. He was the most important thing about the first two movies, for sure. He was the ultimate result of all the conflict. Here’s the real interesting thing - John Connor is also the most boring thing about Terminator. The character of the “savior” never translated. The best it did was work when Cameron showed us this wise-ass kid who would grow up to be that person. But really, look at all the sequels: they failed for lots of reasons but one primary reason was John Connor as a character failed. Nobody knew how to present him. Is he whiny and weak willed like Nick Stahl? Is he intense and humorless like academy award winner Christian Bale? Is he cocky? What makes him an interesting character if he’s the guy who’s just “supppsed to win?” I think if you look at the failure of Terminator as also the continued failure of the John Connor character to translate, a lot makes sense about the route the filmmakers have taken. They’ve seemingly removed John and instead have focused on the more dynamic mother Mary character: Sarah. So has Terminator become a feminist vessel? It seems like by virtue of the fact that John Connor doesn’t work, it has become about Linda Hamilton, who always grabbed audiences.
  9. Terminator - Dark Fate

    Doesn't look a Cameron Terminator, for sure. Looks more like T3.
  10. I really dig this one; a Joy Division cover off the Heat soundtrack:
  11. Slash's Snakepit Houston 2001

    Nice pics. Real up close and personal, especially the one where you're almost directly underneath him. If you look closely, you can see him wearing his coke-stash necklace.
  12. I’ll forever fantasize about what a more electronic CD could have been. I’ve always been more partial to the ‘99 demos Sean Beaven worked on. There was something spacey and Floydish about the sound textures of those. Moby would have made a fantastic producer and I have to believe the album would have been just as strong as the one that came out a decade later, albeit, with a handful of other songs. As far as Axl not regarding Moby, he may feel that Moby was in a position to help and didn’t, because he didn’t understand Axl’s process. I think the last piece of advice Moby offered was for them to record the whole album inside of a month - like AFD...probably not at all what Axl wanted to hear.
  13. Avengers: Endgame

    Dude, you speak the truth. That was on my mind every freakin' second of it. So much so that I could literally hear Dee Snider, plainly screaming "We're not gonna take it!..."
  14. Avengers: Endgame

    That's what I heard everybody say in reviews. Then they went and named the character Killmonger (!)(?). I know we're dealing with comic book characters and they have origins in broad territories, but man, what an awful name. Like waving a flag and getting hit over the head with a hammer: "This is our villain! He has Kill and monger in the same name!" It's almost the same wink-wink as Apocalypse Now; naming the crazy surfing Lieutenant Killgore.
  15. Cheesy, corny, fairly insubstantial. So, yeah...just another Ted Bundy movie! Actually, I think everybody was miscast in this thing, with the exception of Ted's first lawyer and the girl who played his wife. She was great.
