    Anyone got any recommendations for Charlie Sheen movies from the 80s and 90s? Already seen Beyond the Law and Wraith.

    Red Dawn and The Boys Next Door are mandatory.

    Gotta hardcore 2nd Men At Work and The Rookie. Also stuff like Navy SEALs, Young Guns, The Arrival, No Man's Land are all fun.

    Watched this as a friend was raving about it. Thought it was alright, though a couple of goofs and odd choices of plot devices. I just kinda wished it was more complex.

    A virus becoming a more difficult problem to solve than cryonics... maybe it's true, this pandemic does seem to be dragging on. :D

    I saw Wrath Of Man the other day.

    This is the first movie released in 2021 that I've seen. I saw it at home not in the theater and for that I'm kind of glad. Jason Statham plays a man working as a guard for a cash transport business. Tight lipped and very controlled, he's just a guy going about his job. But as Wrath of Man unfurls, the story behind why he's working that job is revealed. And then it is easy to see that this is pretty much a revenge thriller as Statham's character is trying to find people who killed someone he was close to.

    But I don't know why this was seen to be some kind of big deal movie. Sure Statham can carry a B-level action movie, much like Gerard Butler but this movie has been made so many times that even that ability seems wasted here.

    And will someone please explain to me why every time Guy Ritchie directs a movie, film fans seem to get sexually aroused at the mention of his name? This is a by the numbers movie/script that had me wondering what the big deal was? I mean, I like movies with a high body count but there wasn't a single original idea in every phase of execution (no pun intended) for this movie.

    Wrath of Man ends up being a movie with lots of guns, bullets, blood and death as one man hunts for revenge. But whatever personality Statham has show in his appearances in the Fast and Furious franchise (or The Transporter franchise for that matter) is buried so deep that you almost forget the guy has a personality to begin with. You can watch it once and realize that not only will you never have to sit through it again...you probably have seen this movie about 50 times before, just with other actors in the lead role.

    I gave this one a 5 out of 10 rating on IMDB.

    Your standard for Statham's on-screen personality is Fast and Furious?

    Your review makes me want to see it even more now, I crave more mainstream mindlessly violent action cinema. Asia is leaving everybody else in the dust these days.

    The possibility didn't even connect with me until the end when the doll ejects semen in front of his son, and then I was like "oh shit" haha.

    lol

    Finally caught The Empty Man on HBO. It was no masterpiece, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Took itself too seriously overall, but it was a nice combo of various genre tropes: urban legend, detective story, psychological horror, and cosmic horror rolled into one chunky narrative (at 2:15, this is on the longer side for a horror flick).

    I definitely picked up on some In the Mouth of Madness vibes, which I appreciated; but The Empty Man wasn't as much fun as Carpenter's film, and it's ruthlessly bleak at times. The philosophical scaffolding might be eye-rolly for some viewers, but I was okay with it.

    Although inconsistent, certain sequences and shots were really awesome, and created an eerie cinematic atmosphere. Some of the scare tactics were also genuinely thrilling and unsettling.

    The scene at the abandoned camp in particular was... really something. That scene reminded me of The Endless at times--another really good cosmic horror flick.

    I also included The Transporter series too. (Throw in The Meg as well). I'm not talking about how good the movies were or weren't. I just mean that he seemed ALIVE in the movies rather than in Wrath of Man where a wax figure would've shown more life than he did.

    Seeing a lot of talk right now about who will replace Daniel Craig as Bond once he's done. I don't think the next actor should be black or female, he should be fuckin' Indian. Naveen Andrews or something.

    Although it's hard to disagree with Idris Elba in the role.

    i agree tbh, it’s a clearly defined persona, it’s not like doctor who where it made logical sense for him to be a woman at some point.

    Yeah but "high and mighty, plum up his arse pommy" isn't even ethnically specific though.

    Edit: Trailer for Apichatpong's new film. <3
