Trisons And Demons And Jetcycles, Oh My!! RIDDICK Details Emerging...

Merrick here...
Hollywood Reporter has a brief article about the pimping of RIDDICK (the third Riddick movie) at EFM's Berlin thingy (EFM = European Film Market). Said article reveals our first pointed hint of the new movie's story details:
Though billed as a back-to-basics approach to the character popularized by Diesel, the script features the character -- the most wanted man in the galaxy -- left for dead on a barren alien planet, dealing with "trisons" (three-legged bisons) and "mud demons." He must then contend with two squads of bounty hunters, one of which ride rockets called jetcycles.
says THR HERE. Early indications said that a third installment might expand upon the "Underverse" metaphysics which drove THE CHRONICELS OF RIDDICK. More recent news points towards that mythology being significantly down-scaled, if not abandoned altogether. Jetcycles. I'm sensing a gnarly Speeder Bike chase in our futures...

    Ready for this one!!

    And...wait for it haters...

    by kbass

    First...and I wasn't even trying. Seriously...I like both Riddick movies...and I enjoyed the cartoon. If they get the story right this character has a ton of potential.

  • Feb. 17, 2010, 9:55 a.m. CST

    If this makes money

    by estacado1

    only then they'll have the budget to expand the underverse.

  • Feb. 17, 2010, 9:55 a.m. CST

    I liked both films...

    by Phimseto

    ...but definitely feel they got away from what made the character work in "Chronicles." That film might have worked as the last one in their planned trilogy, not the first. I hope they don't do any "reboot" crap, and figure out a reasonable way to connect the dots.

    But will there be a story?

    And on Riddick...

    by Phimseto

    ...Riddick works best as an ensemble character. He's the lynchpin to the whole affair, but if your story and characters can stand on their own when Riddick is off-screen, then you know you are trending in the right direction. It's not so much the small scale of Pitch Black they should be trying to emulate than the fact that the story was as interesting with Radha Mitchell, Cole Hauser and Keith David as it was when Vin Diesel was around. Riddick was the cool X factor, like The Man With No Name in the three Leone films. That is what they should be shooting for, so I would say writing good leads and casting them well are as important as anything in this new production. I'm pulling for them.

    So ignoring the end of the last movie then?

    How will this work with the last movie?

    by moorE12

    The last movie ended all Conan the Barbarian, with Riddick being the leader/ruler. So, is this going to be a prequel or what?

  • Feb. 17, 2010, 10:04 a.m. CST

    I'm sure it will be cool...

    by REVENGE_of_FETT

    It's probably wise to sideline the underverse shit, at least for now. But I really did like the intricate mythology he was building with Chronicles and am a bit sad to see that go away.

  • Feb. 17, 2010, 10:05 a.m. CST

    Disappointing

    by HoboCode

    I relish another riddick movie but I want more Underverse fammit!

  • Feb. 17, 2010, 10:08 a.m. CST

    I'm guessing...

    by REVENGE_of_FETT

    That moments after the last film ended, Riddick decided he didn't want to be the ruler of the zombies. That makes sense for his character. becuase nobody else is going to challenge him, and they can't let him just walk away, they gulag his ass. I can see that happening I suppose.</p><p>As someone else said, hopefully this one will make enough money we can go check out that Underverse stuff because that sounds interesting.

    Looks like the 3rd Riddick is a no-win situation.

    by RedEgiraahgnal

    If they make a real "Chronicles" sequel, people don't wanna see it, and if they go back to the "Pitch Black" monster slaying, people will be pissed off that they don't continue the story from "chronicles".

  • Feb. 17, 2010, 10:19 a.m. CST

    Never really thought about Man With No Name...

    by kells

    But that would really have been a perfect way to develop the character without having to worry about writing themselves into an overly ambitious universe that they can't write themselves out of. Pitch Black was really quite good, though I thought it was Radha Mitchell who really took it over the top. Riddick as the central enigma at the heart of equally interesting secondaries should definitely be the way to go - you could even do it while still setting it in the Underverse - just drop hints about the Underverse without necessarily trying to go all out into the mythology.

    Black vs. Chronicles

    by fzammetti

    Hell, I'll say it if no one else will: I prefer Chronicles to Pitch Black. Love Pitch Black of course, just felt like Chronicles was the overall more interesting and entertaining movie. I really want to see that storyline continued, and I'm sure we'll get that, but in a smaller way. I'd prefer they go the other direction personally. I'd imagine getting backing for that would be tough though... "So, studio X, we want to do another Riddick movie in the mold of Pitch Black, which as you know has become something of a cult classic and DVD hit"... as opposed to "So, studio X, we want to do another Riddick movie in the mold of Chronicles, which as you know got panned by most critics and it generally viewed as the weaker of the two movies by the fans". Yeah, I have to admit, I'd be more inclined to give my money for the first effort. Still, I'd really prefer seeing the second. I still think "Riddick vs. The Underverse" is the direction I want to be going, not "the opening scene from Riddick for 90 minutes with some creature danger thrown in for good measure". Eh, doesn't really matter... I'll be there opening day no matter what... Riddick is cool.

  • Feb. 17, 2010, 10:29 a.m. CST

    Underverse

    by REVENGE_of_FETT

    I don't think they have to abandon the story of the second film to do this exact storyline. We really have no idea what the Underverse is or how it works. Maybe this planet he's on....IS the Underverse. Either some other dimensional plane or just a planet they refer to as the Underverse.

  • Feb. 17, 2010, 10:33 a.m. CST

    And to be fair...

    by Phimseto

    ...Chronicles did have interesting characters. I liked Toombs, Lord Marshal, and the characters played by Karl Urban and Linus Roache. I do think the challenge for them is to tie the previous films into this new one, and in a good, clever way...not some kind of cheap write-off. In fact, don't even be afraid to make Riddick more of a side character, with a focus on another character (like Tuco in Good, Bad, Ugly). It would be a good way to approach the mythology of the Twohy/Riddick universe without putting everything on the Riddick character. It would also allow Diesel a chance to reintroduce/reshape the character for this new film (and presumably future projects).

  • Feb. 17, 2010, 10:33 a.m. CST

    Could be good...

    by Fa_Tass_DinoMolester

    Definitely sounds more Pitch Black than Chronicles, which is what most people wanted, I think...

    Shitty script hurt 2nd movie, but still fun

    by PornKing

    The occasional corny dialogue and terrible acting by Thandie Newton really hurt the 2nd movie. Plus the whole underverse concept "cult" was a little heavy-handed and cheesy. It was still a fun movie though because of Diesel and all the cool action sequences. They just needed to tighten that script up and find someone other than Thandie. She literally ruined every scene she was in.

  • Feb. 17, 2010, 10:59 a.m. CST

    Agreed about Thandie Newton

    by REVENGE_of_FETT

    She was horrible, as she ALWAYS IS! She's not even that hot so I don't know how she gets acting jobs.

    Pitch Black was good but not memorable. Chronicles was a terrible film and that crap came out nearly 6 years ago. Who cares at this point? I'm guessing only David Twohy cares - this screams vanity project.

    by rev_skarekroe

    There's no reason this couldn't be a direct sequel to the last one. Maybe he goes to the Underverse and his new subjects decide to have a coup and kick his ass to the curb. Lots of ways you could set up this story without ignoring anything from Chronicles.

    by xsi kal

    Great recap of what made Pitch Black work, and I totally agree. Unfortunately, they already abandoned the Man with No Name route with the second movie... I'm not sure I can see them pulling back on it, and telling the 3rd movie from someone else's perspective, (so that Riddick can go back to being the scary motherfucker in the shadows).

    Necromonger Coup is a great idea...

    by zinc_chameleon

    because it ups the ante, racks up the opposition to Riddick. The Necromongers decide to head straight for the Underverse, ignoring what's left of humanity. For good measure they dump Riddick in a gulag to insure no other human can make trouble. Why not kill him outright? That's for the writers to intrigue us with...

    There's No Need For Necromongers

    by Acquanetta

    There's no reason this film needs to follow TCOR. Riddick is like a modern day pulp hero ala Conan the Barbarian. The first Conan story featured the character as an aging king. The next revolved around his earliest chronological adventure. Riddick's adventures could easily be presented out of order. (This is especially true since Vin doesn't look much different than he did in 2004.) They don't even need to make a big deal about it being a prequel. It could be like Temple of Doom- just another adventure that isn't forced to pay lip service to the previous entry.

  • Feb. 17, 2010, 12:42 p.m. CST

    No, Diesel is getting pretty wrinkly

    by REVENGE_of_FETT

    Bison/Trison

    by Hadesbc

    Do I really have to point out that the "bi" in bison is NOT a prefix for two, especially meaning two legs. How dumb are these writers that they came up with trison and gave the animal three legs? I might have forgiven three horns, but even that would be wrong. In my movie I will have Triceratop-like creatures with four tails. I will call them Quadceratops. FAIL.

    Taut movie with a compelling premise, and extremely well executed. Had characterization oozing out its pores. <P> Chronicles just confused the hell out of me.

    We now know more details about these mysterious creatures, including their communicative skills - An anagram of TRISON is "I SNORT".

    by nightmute

    Um...why doesn't somebody make a film that people want to see? The thought of Riddick running around on some desert set, as he fights low budget bad guys does not sound very interesting. The stupid thing is, David Twohy actually does write reasonable movies, with useful ideas, so why is he determined to keep this Riddick crap going? It's not even much of a cash cow. I mean think about it, will dating couples or groups of pals go to the movies on a Saturday night and think, oh yeah, let's go see Riddick. No, they won't. Make something new you Hollywood fucks.

    Simple workaround for Chronicles ending

    by thommcg

    Riddick & the Necromongers land on alien planet. Riddick kills the alpha-male of the Trison herd (Or "therd" if you will). Keeping what he kills, Riddick becomes head of the Trison therd & waves adios to the Necromongers.

  • Feb. 17, 2010, 2:48 p.m. CST

    Here's what it should be...

    by Hot_Machete

    Act I: Riddick leads the Necromonger fleet to the Threshold, gateway to the Underverse. Much of the fleet is destroyed reaching the nexus/portal/whatever that connects to the Underverse. Riddick enters the Underverse, sees some crazy visions, and starts developing powers similar to the Lord Marshal. While Riddick is gone, the Necromonger fleet is thrown into chaos, and a coup/civil war breaks out. Aereon, the elemental, convinces one faction to abandon the Necromonger way and to join her. She is unable to rescue Riddick, though, and when he gets back from the Underverse, he and some of his supporters are exiled/stranded on some barren planet filled with dangerous creatures.<BR> <BR> Act II: Various governments find out about the fractured Necromonger fleet, and of the fact that Riddick made it into the Underverse and back. They send out bounty hunter teams to try to track down Riddick, so as to learn the secrets of his Underverse visions. The specific faction of the Necromonger fleet that exiled Riddick is the only group that knows the planet he has been stranded on. Aereon tries to find this faction fleet, so as to learn Riddick’s location, but a fleet of government ships beats her there, destroying the Necromonger faction fleet and getting the data for themselves. They then inform their bounty hunters of Riddick’s location. The bounty hunters pull out all the stops trying to capture Riddick, but his natural skills, plus his ever growing Underverse powers make him a formidable target.<BR> <BR> Act III: Riddick turns the tables on the bounty hunters and escapes from the barren planet. He doesn’t get far in space, however before the fleet of government ships comes across him. He plays cat-and-mouse with them for a while, but is finally cornered. Just then, Aereon and her fleet show up, and a space battle ensues. The government fleet is defeated, and Riddick reunites with Aereon. He reveals the nature of his Underverse visions, and Aereon explains how they pertain to the future of both the Underverse and the normal world, setting up the next movie.

    by spud mcspud

    How the hell do you ignore the fact that the last Furyan - ot just the last Furyan, but the most wanted fugitive in the galaxy - just became the leader of the most feared army in all the universe?? You can't just ignore the movie! How much fucking sense does that NOT make??<P> I swear I don't fucking understand Hollywood. Yes, there was clamouring for a PITCH BLACK style movie, but there was WAY more clamouring for this to become a spacebound sequel to CONAN. So why the U-turn and the attempt to ignore the consequences of the last movie that are easily enough to shake the entire universe? The last Furyan is in charge of the fucking Necromongers, and all we get in this shitty sequel is PITCH FUCKING BLACK PLUS BOUNTY HUNTERS??<P> Who's writing this, fucking JettL93? Or George fucking Lucas??<P> I call shenanigans. Give us a proper sequel to a proper RIDDICK movie, not this fucking PB reboot bullshit!!<P> And the unwritten rule is... if there are speeder bikes, THERE MUST BE EWOKS!!

    Thanks, xsi kal

    by Phimseto

    <P> Sure it could be done. Not quite sure how, but reconciling it could be the creators' key to coming up with the right script and the right characters. For sci-fi precedent, The Doctor on "Doctor Who" was elected President of the Time Lords and promptly left town before he got saddled with a single scrap of paperwork. That's a vague analogy, but you get the idea...there's ways to get out of the macro-plotline of Chronicles (without abandoning it) and tell a fairly contained story in its own right. Perhaps Riddick is off investigating what it means to be a "Furian." <P> I think one thing that's important is that they should age Riddick more or less accordingly...that it's been ten years since the events of Pitch Black, and the character is not quite the same as he was then. He might revert to form when he's in "being hunted by mercs" mode but they need to put in some serious work to fleshing out where the character is now. More importantly, they need to figure out how to convey that in this new film without having to spell it out overtly.

    by Acquanetta

    The reality is that it doesn't matter what direction Twohy wants to take this franchise in. No matter what portion of the Riddick timeline we end up seeing- whether it's a story set before or after TCOR- there will be fans to support it. Look at what a difference a few years has made for TCOR. If there had actually been a great demand for seeing the Underverse, Lord Riddick, or more of the Necromongers, we would've gotten a true sequel years ago.

    by spud mcspud

    It's fucking RIDICULOUS how the Warhammer 40K universe has been out there for over 25 years now and is no nearer becoming a movie now than it was back in the beginning. Can you imagine a HORUS HERESY movie? Fucking spectacular! A series of movies based on that, focussing on Garviel Loken and the Sons of Horus, would just be awesome. Will it ever get made? Fuck no - not until Games Workshop get their thumbs out of their asses long enough to get to Hollywood with a fucking decent pitch!<P> God, a WARHAMMER 40K movie. Give it to Blommkamp, and give him $200 million. You'd have a movie that'd make James Cameron cry, it would be so fucking awesome. And the cherry on the top is? THERE ARE ALREADY TOYS TO BUY!!<P> WH40K - THE HORUS HERESY. Make THAT shit, Hollywood!!

    by ckone

    I mean, even though Chronicles was kida self indulgent, it did bring a lot more to the plate. I at least would like a scene in this where we see him lead his entire necromonger troops to their doom and just ditch 'em, that way it would play to his character of being a loner and still wrap up the idea of him being the Conan of the underverse. What is that like two minutes of screen time at most? Just have him lead them into a battle they can't win, and off he goes on his own, just leaving them all to be killed. Sounds pretty rat basterdish to me. Then you can go and redo part one again. Cause that's really all this is, a way to get the success of part one back, him on his own, surviving, and probably having to save some dumb people too cause deep down he is a good guy...aw shucks...

It's a bad idea and I'm glad they're jettisoning it.<p> Like Phimseto wrote, Riddick works best in an ensemble cast. He's the cool X-factor, it's true, so I hope the new film kicks some ass in this respect. I'm glad they're doing it on a smaller, more Riddick-like scale.<p> I guarantee it'll be a way better film than "The Chronicles of Riddick."<p> Way better.

    by Castlemonster

    about making proceed from the storyline of Riddick. The important thing is to make it a good stand-alone movie. They can't depend on all the audience to know the characters and previous stories. A good script will reintroduce them to another generation of fans without getting tangled up in a convoluted nerd-enforced canon. A bad script, then who cares, anyway? A classic script needs no backstory, just subtle hints that there were previous adventures. Look at The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. The three main characters seem to know each other from the beginning but there is no attempt to fill in the background. Because there wasn't any! And it works.

    My Spec Idea For "Riddick 3"

    by Media Messiah

    In regard to "Chronicles of Riddick", the only thing good about the story was when Riddick accidentally becomes the Necromonger king, that was absolutely great...and a surprise ending, but the rest of the movie was horrid. I love Pitch Black, and the character of Riddick, but Chronicles was largely lazy. "Serenity" was the movie that Riddick should have been and was trying to be.<BR><BR>Unless Twohy has some really special twist, and thus story arc, when it comes to the Underverse, whatever that is, then they should have Riddick lead the Necromongers to the planet of Hammerhead flying creatures, who Riddick uses to quickly take-out the Necromongers, as a method of misdirection, allowing his escape. Angered by the betrayal, Karl Urban's character, the only surviving Necromonger, hires Toomes and other Mercs, to go after Riddick. With Urban leading them, his plan is to kill Riddick, once and for all. The adventure leads them to another planet where Riddick is hiding-out, laying in wait to hunt them--a planet where they must deal with hives of other vicious creatures. Here, the creatures are bad, very bad, and deadly indeed, but here is the twist--the worst monster in the wilds is Riddick, not them. Yes, the bad guys quickly find themselves targeted by the human target which they are in pursuit of--ala "Rambo: First Blood." That is my script pitch for "Riddick 3". I would love to sell it to Vin, Twohy, Ted Field, and Universal...as I need the money. I'm a cheap date guys--I just need the kind of bread that you fellas spend for lunch each day.<BR><BR>BTW, that is nothing; you should hear my pitch for the next "Fast And The Furious...now that will really blow your minds"...as it is real blockbuster high concept stuff worthy of the new 3D craze!!!

    Ckone: That Is What I Have Been Saying For...

    by Media Messiah

    ...a few year now in my posts about what the new Riddick should look like. Riddick needs to dump, and escape, the Necromongers in the opening prologue of the movie. And you are correct, that is so rat bastard like, that it fits the character. He is supposed to be a rat bastard who is always scheming...and is always up to something tactically speaking-- pulling a fast one when you least expect it, and pulling it off...very big, and very well. That is how Riddick should be played, however, in Chronicles, they failed to do that???

    Man With No Name

    by papabendi

    I think whoever mentioned Riddick in terms of the man with no name is spot on. He is an ensamble character too. He worked in Pitch Black because he was part of a bigger story. kind of like Han Solo. There was a mystrery to him that made him a very cool character. As soon as he gets a full blown film to himself and they expand on him the mystery is dissolved, and he becomes a generic hard man. There are only certain thing that should be hinted at with a character like Riddickbut they explain where he comes from and what his fucking 'destiny' is in Chronicles. Killing the character stone dead. What was probably needed was something smaller scale like a space Yojimbo or Miller's Crossing.

I prefer the grand sense of adventure of Chronicles to the simpler, stranded on a barren planet Pitch Black story. It's really limitting, and not all that interesting, there's only so far you can go with 2 bounty hunter clans. Well, it could be good, with a good script and story like Predator, or it could end up a listless, pedestrian action-driven movie. Of course they're kind of forced to go this route with a smaller budget. So I hope the story doesn't suck.

It also can't be done away with in any kind of quick or trite fashion, for much the same reasons. <P> I'm looking forward to it, but it's no easy task ahead of them.

    by Castlemonster

    by the Necromonger is incredibly lame. He's not Obama. You don't just throw a sack over his head and drop himoff like in some screwball comedy. And the idea of him getting the Necromonger massacred-totally idiotic. I say don't explain it at all. New adventure, fresh setting. Doesn't mean you can't have a few familiar faces or storylines pop up but you can do that without bridging it with the other movies. Hollywood needs to learn to ignore the continuity whingers.

They don't have to bother with the dodgy task of writing themselves back out of the corner. I love COR but it's a foregone conclusion that Riddick isn't a leader. It will be clear enough that things didn't work out when we find him back kicking bounty hunter butt, again. No expalaination neccesary. It's better to wonder in this case.

    Autodidact, there is a difference douche

    by The Eskimo

    "Forrest J Ackerman used the term "sci-fi" at UCLA in 1954. As science fiction entered popular culture, writers and fans active in the field came to associate the term with low-budget, low-tech "B-movies" and with low-quality pulp science fiction. By the 1970s, critics within the field such as Terry Carr and Damon Knight were using "sci-fi" to distinguish hack-work from serious science fiction, and around 1978, Susan Wood and others introduced the pronunciation "skiffy". Peter Nicholls writes that "SF" (or "sf") is "the preferred abbreviation within the community of sf writers and readers". David Langford's monthly fanzine Ansible includes a regular section "As Others See Us" which offers numerous examples of "sci-fi" being used in a pejorative sense by people outside the genre."

    when sequals are set in the same universe and have the same characters, but are totally different films ala Alien to Aliens. So I liked the jump from horror scifi to space opera. Though I must admit that I think that all the references to things we never see may have been a bit alienating for audiences....I m really not sure why Riddick bombed the way it did as imho its a pretty good Conan in space, and a decent throwback to the old pulp serial space operas. I say bring on Riddick 3, Imho Twohy is seriously underrated as a director, and I for one would love to see his Riddick universe expanded more and continued.....

    SouthAfricanGuy: Dark Fury Should Have Been Riddick

    by Media Messiah

    Yes, when I saw "Dark Fury" several years ago, I immediately knew that it should have been the basis for "The Chronicles of Riddick" as it is far better, and there seems to be a greater understanding of the character, his universe, and what his enemies, and other fellow humans, as well as environments, should be. Even the action sequences are far better, and out, and out, more clever than anything in Chronicles, save for the prison escape on the surface of Crematoria, and the twist ending where Riddick become Lord Marshall. <BR><BR>Back to Dark Fury, that zero-G trick of Riddick's was great.

    I Must Say About Chronicles Of Riddick

    by Media Messiah

    The special effects, in regard to the battle sequences on the planets, and in space, were anything but special...and looked poorly done, and downright cheap???!!!! Also, the fight choreography, in respect to hand to hand combat, was often hard to see...and was not clearly shot? It should have looked more like Bourne Identity, but instead, we got what looked much like the poorly staged and shot fight choreography in the Batman movies? <BR><BR>They should hire the Bourne Identity stunt team and second unit to film the stunts for the next Riddick sequel, and they should hire Zoic...of Firefly, Serenity, and the new Battlestar Galactica fame for the space battle effects shots.

  • Feb. 19, 2010, 3:23 p.m. CST

    I disagree with that Subs. Asi is always that way

    by Dirk_The_Amoeba

    To the degree some find that humorous, and I admit, I find humor in it, it can be tolerated. Which is ironic, because Asi is all about intolerance. <p> Also, that was not a flamewar. No hard feelings where engendered. Amoebas do not fight - we love. But we do like to point out inconsistencies.<p> As I stated in another post.<p> Intolerance is the big fire starter in Wars and differences of opinion that become belligerent. i.e. your intolerance of differing opinions on Abrams. <p> The other big reason for wars being started is a feeling of inferiority/insecurity on someones part that causes them to lash out when someone disagrees with their worldview i.e. I have an enormous dick, some men and all parameciums, can not deal with the insecurity that causes.

    by Continentalop

    No, that is his psychosis. Ok, you don't like The Departed. But to spend post after post ripping into it after others expressed their like for the movie, then questioning their intelligence is just an asshole or lunatic's move. Plain and simple. <p> So if he wants to lecture me and hold his nose up I just have to say "prove that your right." Otherwise it is just an opinion, not a fact. That means that you should be a little more polite concerning other people's opinion. <p> Like I said before, so one here has movie criticism credentials that are above reproach, so no one should say anything and then act like it is infailable. <p> Well, except me that is...

  • Feb. 19, 2010, 3:45 p.m. CST

    I'm sorry Subs but it is true

    by ColonelFatheart

    in reaching out to Asi. Soft power, baby, soft power. <p>Subs does have a point. You know what you're going to get with him. On the other hand, yes, he takes things too far. But let's remember where we are. We don't have to engage. If someone's angering you and they're not listening to reason, just state your case and don't take it personally when he fires back. I know, I know. Sometimes it's too hard to back off. Some people are too churlish, and I really think Asi has to cut that shit out if he wants to keep talking about movies with fellow fans, but walk away if you don't see the point in continuing. <p>Conti, I like your newly proposed strategy. Just say, "prove it," and leave it at that. If you get a well-thought-out response, then by all means resume the discussion.

I have no patience for people lecturing others about film and acting as if they are...ah...help me out here Subs!

You know your tastes are informed. You know everybody else knows it too.<P>There comes a time when crossing that line to talk sense and show how correct you are defeats the entire purpose.

    can all be just as stubborn as Asimov. We don't throw around the "retards" and the "idiots" at each other as he does, but I'm convinced, more than ever, he does that when he feels cornered.

    Movies and have someone to talk to about them. SUNRISE, THE LAST LAUGH, GREED, THE WEDDING MARCH, THE CROWD, THE UNKNOWN, and THE GOLEM: HOW HE CAME INTO THIS WORLD. Some you might have seen already, and I'm not saying they are all great but I do find them all interesting.

    I actually planning on watching that again soon. I rented it in college and I think 90% of it was lost on me but I still liked it. I prefer Renior to Carne though - have you ever seen Le Bete Humaine and La Cheyene (I just know I'm butchering this, my French is just abyssmal)? Check those out and then see the American remakes by Fritz Lang - Human Desire & Scarlet Street.

    Arkham Asylum is a work of art.

    by anonymoose

    It's the first Batman video game to let you play the detective side of Batman. It's visually a treat. When you're playing this game in 1080p, you ARE Batman. The voice work is perfect. How can it not be when it features the Batman Animated Series alumni? <P> The overall plot (Joker is creating an army of Banes.) is so-so, but the excellent bits of story are told through audio recordings picked up around the facility. They are doctor-patient interviews that dig deep into the psyches of Gotham's criminally insane. <P> Some of my favorite parts from the game revolve around Scarecrow. After chasing the fucker around the asylum, Batman starts to lose his shit. He thinks he sees Gordon's dead body, when it's really just an unknown officer's. Rooms start tilting like mad, his vision starts to go blurry, and his eyes start glowing bright, demon red. <P> In a hallway off the Arkham Library, Batman regresses into his childhood. As you walk along the hallway, it transforms into a Gotham City street. As little Bruce Wayne, you walk slowly, through the rain, past the police sirens and the sounds of your parents being murdered. <P> The gameplay is great. It's a combination of stealth and brutal force. You must utilize both to succeed. <P> There's also a fascinating attention to detail. After each boss encounter, you'll notice Batman and his suit showing signs of wear and tear. <P> It's a badass game. Pick it up.

    Part 1

    by MacReady452

    His Triumph Rocket III Classic sent ash swirling into the air as he entered the city limits. The sun crested the horizon and he could see the skeleton of the demolished bridge off in the distance. His periphery picked up a small group of “floaters” on his 1. His steel toe Red Wing flicked the Triumph into fifth gear while he simultaneously drew “the blade”. The “floaters” were cleaved as they reached his 3 and almost as quickly as they were spotted they were left in his 6. The aftermath had dried the riverbed. The destroyed section of the bridge lay in a pile of ruble on the East bank. The crumbled city looked eerily similar to the Megadeth t-shirt he wore under his duster. His trip to Chicago from New York just got a little longer. The idle of the engine shook through his hands and down his spine. He revved the engine and pointed the Rocket north down the bank looking for a point of ingress.

    As he hit the riverbed he couldn’t help but escape to that corner of his mind, the only reminder of a world that used to be. A waitress’ smile as “Mandy” played on an old Wurlitzer in his favorite restaurant. None of this existed anymore. None of it mattered. His mind had distracted him. He looked north and for a split second he thought a flash flood was barreling down on him. No. Not a flood of water anyway, a flood of “floaters”.<p> “Someone just flushed the toilet.” He said to himself. <p> Weighing his options he made a snap decision and head back toward the bridge. He gave himself about a minute ‘til they were on top of him. He twisted the throttle and sent the bike up the pile of debris. With his back to the bank and the over hang of the bridge covering him from above all he would have to defend was the front and that would be an uphill battle for the horde. <p>

    He positioned the bike between himself and the hill, reached for the saddlebags on the bike and drew out two things, the only two things that were in there, a leather satchel and an ammo box. He popped the ammo box open and left it on the ground. He took off “the blade” and leaned it against the bank behind him. He revealed a large flask from the inside pocket of his coat, spun the cap off and took a long belt. The Jameson didn’t burn so much as numb his dry throat. He set the flask, open, on a rock that was within reach. <p> The horde was at the bottom of the hill now. Two “floaters” rushed up the hill. Casually he raised an arm and a roar erupted from his sleeve. The turds exploded backwards. He shrugged off his duster to reveal the Taurus Judge he was holding in his right hand, and a Mac 10 at his left hip. The .410 slugs had covered the front line of the horde in brain like they were at a Gallagher show. One figure dared to step forward.

    As he writes city boundary, that III of the conventional ash of the rocket of the victory which eddies in the air is sent. As for the sun, it crested, as for him can the horizon look at the framework of the bridge where interval is destroyed. Around that 1 the group whose “those which float” are small was picked up. The wing where that steel iron toe is red, him simultaneously while pulling “the blade”, struck victory in the 5th gear. That spot could be acquired, that it remained in that 6 where the majority directly it reaches to that three, simultaneously as for “those which float” tearing. Aftereffect dried the waterbed. You put the section where the bridge is destroyed on the east bank with the mountain of the rubble. It resembles into its T shirt of Megadeth which he has attached into the body under that dust payment uncanny, the city where you see and are shattered. At that traveling to the Chicago from New York exactly a little became longer. Racing exactly of the engine shakes, passing by that hand, lowers that rachis. He increased the speed of the engine, pointed to the rocket under the bank where the point of penetration is searched to north. <P> He helped and him could not escape to the corner of that heart, but although it is to hit against the riverbed the only memo of the world where you use. As for smile you played with Wurlitzer where the restaurant of that taste is old” as “a weight less Mandy”. Now which it probably will rub, it was not. None of that was important. That heart was confused him. He saw on north, between instant thought of that the debacle is that barrel finishing. Calling obtaining. The flood “of those which in any case the flood which does not have the water, float”. <P> “As for someone the rest room which exactly lets flow the water”. He called to him himself. <P> Measuring the weight of that selection, he decides suddenly, returns to the bridge. He until those were on that, gave approximately minute `to him himself. He twisted the slot, sent the motorcycle on the mountain of the wreckage. Returning to the bank, he must protect especially from him, with the excessive secret of that and the bridge the cover is the front part, as for that rising for corps it sways. <P> He placed the motorcycle between his himself hills, reached because of saddlebags of the motorcycle, and two things which are there, the only two things, sent out leather satchel and the ammunition box. He opened, the left ammunition box was sounded that of the land plunk. He removed “the blade”, made tilt vis-a-vis the bank of that rear. He made the flask where is large from the sheath inserting that coat clear, turned the hat, and took the long belt. Jameson that did not burn the throat which is dried so as an insensible sense. He put in place the flask which with the stone which is among the ranges, was opened. <P> Corps now was on the buttocks of the hill. Two hurried on the hill, “those which float”. The arm and the roar where he erupts accidentally from that sleeve were lifted. Turds exploded in the rear. He paid for that and dust with the hip on that left where he has grasped with that right hand and parried the judge of the torus, in order to make Mac 10 clear. .410 The slug as been in Gallagher show, covered the front of the corps of the brain.

It was the “12th beer alert.” He was provided only mild comfort with the knowledge that Cheeses was still alive somewhere, but would he make it to the rendezvous in Chicago? <p> “GIVE US THE BAG!” Vader screamed. <p> “Look around you.” He said. “Can’t you see Conti has forsaken this place?” <p> “Have it your way.” Vader said and the horde rushed forward. <p> With a front kick from his Red Wing he pushed the Triumph down the hill toward the horde. A quick burst from the Mac 10 hit the fuel tank and in exploded. The horde was scattered and disoriented.

    by Cheeses_of_Nazareth

    BTW I happen to like Chronicles of Riddick...I love cheesy space opera, as if you haven't guessed by now...CoR has some moments, but it isn't as good as Pitch Black. But it has so much pomp and empire and mercenaries and prisons and weird shit to keep me entertained... I LOVED the final battle against the big baddie that moved like the Flash...

    by D.Vader

    A while ago in the comics they did alternate takes on A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi called "Infinities". A New Hope was "what if they didn't blow up the Death Star?" <p> ESB was "What if Luke died on Hoth?" <p> Jedi was "What if they failed in resucing Han from Jabba?" <p> That story has both Luke AND Leia facing off against Vader in the Emperor's throne room on the Death Star. They are able to bring Anakin back to the Light Side without killing him during the attack on the Death Star. Palpatine escapes and the DS is destroyed, but Luke and Leia escape with Vader. <p> At the Rebel's meet up, Vader comes out wearing new, white armor to symbolize his return to the Light, and vows they will destroy Palpatine. <p>Some of us brought it up back during the infamous Baleback and made jokes about it. "White Vader" then became a euphemism for "cocaine", and Half_Vader changed his name to White_Vader (I have a few extra names like that just in case I get banned). <p> Here is a link to the story summary that includes a picture of the White Darth Vader <p>http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Star_Wars_Infinities:_Return_of_the_Jedi

    Subbary®

    by Subtitles_Off

    If you've made up your mind about yesterday's discussions, or you'd rather not remember it, you are advised to skip the bits of today's Subbary® denoted with brackets, as it is a transcript of the conversations as seen through mine own slanted eyes. <P> February 19th, 2010...EffDub's farts have bubbles. She's not clear, but I hope she means when she's in the tub..."I wanna rock n' roll all nite and part of every day," is credited to "Greg" from the television sitcom "Dharma and Greg," which I assume, was about some dude and his orphaned black child, pet puppet alien, legal office, foreign house-cleaner, sloppy, overweight room-mate and-or neighbor, or his girlfriend with an unusual name...Jean Simmons was a British actress of film, BLACK NARCISSUS, SPARTACUS, HAMLET, and television who Balooed permanently less than a month ago. Gene Simmons is the übertongued bass player from the 70s schlock-rock phenomenon KISS...Mac, attracted to bubbles, serenades EffDub with his version of Manilow's "Mandy"...EffDub admits she like FIELD OF DREAMS and runs off to bed before anyone can make fun of her...'Lop is avoiding all mention of SHUTTER ISLAND until Monday, which means, of course, his hard-hearted "friends" will taunt him with SHUTTER ISLAND references all day long...Also, he defends the maligned editing of Scorsese's THE DEPARTED...Stabby mentions an irksome jump-cut in that movie that none of the other Peebers can quite pin down...Word of The Day: Inflalible - (adj.) Without flail...Underscore is not 'moose. Underscore insults Sixies. Underscore is no longer welcome around here with that kind of sh!t ...Flick ventures outside The Box...☆☆ BEATLES OF THE DAY ☆☆.™ Shea Stadium Beatles...Vades distinguishes between editing mistakes and continuity errors and argues that film-makers often sacrifice little details for the correct performance...Asi continues to criticize THE DEPARTED, while Vades and 'Lop defend it...I leave instructions to play nice which fall on deaf ears...Stabby agrees with criticism of Nicholson's performance in THE DEPARTED and says Scorsese should stick to mob movies without Leonardo Dicaprio in them...Series7 is known as Koutch at AIBN and was involved in some sort of typing tussle with Stuntcock Mike...<P>[[ <P>Dirk_The_Amoeba lobs the first personally-directed, non-movie insult, calling Asi "boorish" at 11:58:12, and 'Lop compliments his well-thoughtedness...Asi calls out "stupid retard nonsense braind-dead bullshit piece of shit movies," and Vades informs him, calmly, but directly, that it is the stridency with which Asi proclaims his opinion that is bothersome...Series admits to being occasionally "obnoxious"...There is agreement on Nicholson's DEPARTED performance...The wise Col says "disagreement is only fun when the people debating acknowledge the right of the other person to disagree"...It's not always so cut-and-dried as to who is acknowledging rights and who isn't or who is holding the Fact Conch..."Belligerent by nature." So far, in this specific discussion, Asi has kept it directed belligerently at movies, while others have turned the discussion into a chance to criticize him and his style. This will only end badly...Despite a long-standing rule to leave outside sh!t at the door, 'Lop opens a defense of Stuntcock Mike's reaction to Series with the pointed remark "with Series here it won't stay bottled up, especially with Asimov 'Beat a horse dead and then beat it some more' Lives here as well"...Asi compliments Cheeses' Star Trek porn. God love him! I'll say it OUT FUCKING LOUD - he has been poked and poked and poked and he is still being relatively, for him, well-behaved...After Asi's somewhat awkward explanations, Vades encourages a group hug, but he attaches strings regarding "intolerance" (Dirk's word) and "belligerence" (his). See? It's that "gotta have the last word" thing. There are maybe only two out of all us who don't wield that as a weapon, all the time. I know I do...Asi compliments Vades and Col. for "wise advice"...Shall we move on, asks EffDub...No we shall not, insists Dirk_The_Amoeba, "snickering," not until 'Lop drops his last word, Asi takes the bait, and we can have a pile-on...<P>]]<P>BAMF! to 44023 where I continue the bullsh!t by giving you my last word on the subject...Singing 80s songs with the word BAMF! inserted would've been a good meme. Lettuce remember that for next time...'Lop appreciated Carl Th. Dreyer's DAY OF WRATH more than I did. I'm a huge fan of Dreyer's VAMPYR and THE PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC...'Lop recommends IN THE LOOP, a comedy from last year, and classics CHILDREN OF PARADISE, LE BETE HUMAIN, LA CHEYENE, and the films of Fritz Lang and FW Murnau...A review of THE GAMBLER, a biographical book on Robert Altman by Nathaniel Rich. (http://tinyurl.com/y9nhy2w)...'moose's nostalgia gets engorged with a couple of video game videos. (http://tinyurl.com/yhfvelz), (http://tinyurl.com/yg2czw4)...'Lop and EffDub introduce themselves to one another...Dirk gives 'Lop the new nickname "Coop"...Scorps scats...Sixies iPhones in while on his date...Stabby loves SHUTTER ISLAND while describing it as "kind of a speechless walk to the Exit sign kind of movie on many levels"...'moose praises the "Arkham Asylum" video game...The Stabby Show, in which the guest doesn't show up, and the host would rather just drink beer...So, we watch 'moose's videos instead. Fart painting is more of an audio than a visual. (http://tinyurl.com/as58n2) A weird little man sings a Star Trek parody song and then sings it again as a pretty, little girl.

    First of all, as to fame and fortune being part of who you are: I don't think that's a given. I think it CAN be, and when you've been famous or rich for a long time, it probably IS, but just as often I think fame and fortune are something you HAVE, not something you ARE. <P> And, I would argue that men who have married trophy wives DO take a hit in the respect department, publicly. It's just not as much fun for the tabloids to talk about... and, with women, it's usually QUITE obvious that they're using their looks/sex appeal to get where they want to be, and sex is what everyone REALLY wants to talk about anyway. With rich men getting hot chicks, no one wants to think about the DUDE having sex, right? HOWEVER, when men get themselves a trophy wife, I think absolutely, people snigger at them for it.

    He married a normal person, and is happy. And real. <P> Matt Damon is someone who proves my point about wealth and fame, though: it's something he has. AND deserves. But not something he IS. <P> 'Lop, I see what you're saying there, but it's still not accurate, IMO. There are plenty of people who are phenomenal at what they do, and if all things were fair, would be as rich and famous as Ashton Kutcher... but work in a field where that isn't part of the deal. When it comes to the fame and fortune of actors, at least, you aren't working with a model that translates to other walks of life. So, maybe your argument works in terms of ACTORS, but not with, say, teachers... which is why I say, fame and fortune are not WHAT you are, but something that you get. AND, it doesn't always even correlate to how good you are at anything. Kim Kardashian is the perfect example: she's good at looking fuckable. Should she be THAT famous, for that? I argue, no. She's EASILY as famous as Tiger Woods, and Matt Damon. Is that because it's something she IS, inherently? HELL no.

    by Continentalop

    Not to keep beating a dead subject horse, but my point is more nuanced than that (obviously I did a bad job conveying it). <p> Fame and fortune are just two traits that convey that someone is skilled, talented or successful. There are dozens of others, but someone can look at those two traits as evidence that someone is successful and a potentially worthy mate, just like I can look at someone's hands to see if they are rough to tell if he is a manual laborer. Doesn't mean it is always true, but it is a quick shorthand. <p> But of course some people won't look at fame and fortune as an indicator of success, just like some people will check out a man's clothes or see what kind of truck he drives before deciding he is a laborer (or maybe ask him). Everyone has their own tactics in deciphering where someone stands on their own status rankings. <p> And Kim Kardashian earning her fame and fortune doesn't matter as much because she is a women. Men care mostly about her looks and then her character (will she stick with me, will she cheat, how many diseases does she have?). Sexist, yes. Unfair, yes. But also true to human (ok, male) nature.

    Hola Conti, things are good, how are you?

    by D.Vader

    I'm at my dad's house putting my old music on my iPod. I transferred all my music from college onto his desktop 5 or 6 years ago and never finished pulling the songs off to put them on my iPod. I can't just dump it all on there, I'm too anal and need to make sure everything is correct, every detail about the song. <p> I'm also reeling from the announcement that my dad plans to sell his house. He's been here for a few years, after his last divorce, and its in a great part of town, big backyard that backs into a wooded area and a creek, the back of a local park. Our old dog is buried by the creek next to a bridge we built. Turns out he and his current gf want to move in together, but each house is too small for the other, so they want to move to a FARM. A farm?! What the hell? He's in his 50s and has now decided he wants to own lot of land and be a farmer. I'm just stunned. And saddened because it will mean he'll move much much farther away, and I won't be able to just casually drop by any time I like, like I do now, like I did today bc I was in the area.

    Scorpio

    by Continentalop

    I can't say I can't argue against that list - it is most influential not which ones I think are the best. <p> Still I think GoodFellas should have somehow managed to squeeze in. I think that film changed movie sound tracks forever. Sure Mean Streets and American Graffitti beat it to the punch with using popular music, but Mean Streets didn't have the impact that GoodFellas has and Graffitti's music is all one era and have a rational - they are songs issuing from Wolfman Jack's radio station. The soundtrack from GoodFellas just "exists", no rationalization, and helps establish both mood and time period (the music selected usually is from a certain time period or you could imagine being popular at that time). <p> I'm glad to see Blackboard Jungle on the list. What do you think of it Scorpio?

    THE SEARCHERS 4 out of 5?

    by Continentalop

    Sub, I've got to disagree. THE SEARCHERS is a 5 star - I repeat 5 star - film and one of the greatest films ever. I would also place it as the greatest Western ever (and yes, I'd place it above Leone's which are grandiose and operetic but lack this films depth). This and The Godfather are the two closest things to Shakespeare in American film. <p> Not only is it a deep and epic movie, but it also personal and intrinsic. It combines obvious and broadstroke commentary and humor with subtle touches...a brief glimpse of Ethan and his sister let us know they had an affair...his giving a gift his eldest niece, the only blond, hints that might be his daughter...his hatred for the Indians countered by his growing affection for his adopted half-breed nephew...the fact that Indian chief Scar is his mirror image....<p> And then there is my favorite little nuance. When Ethan shoots out the dead braves eyes, condemning him to a lifetime of wandering the four winds, at the end of the movie the neice is brought home, family order and promise of civilivation for all of them...except for Ethan Edwards/John Wayne, who is left outside as the door (and curtain) is closed on him. Doomed to wonder the four winds as a ghost with no home of his own...

    Yeah but if I remember right he gave the best present to Lucy. <p> Ethan found his massacred family. I never thought of him as Ethan's son but I do think he felt tinges of guilt giving him to his brother's family to be raised. He felt sorry for the child but also hated him because of his race...Ethan is without a doubt a bigot. The thought of a White woman being defiled by an Indian is enough for him to think the woman should be killed (hence the danger Debbie is in from her own Uncle). <p> The comedy stuff I can understand people not liking, I originally didn't like it, but then I began to think and started coming to the opinion that stuff represents civilization. It goes on without them and there is a danger, presented comically, of it not being there for you when you got back. I saw the entire thing about the guy courting her as a comic version of what happened to Ethan and his brother when he was off at war and refused to quit.

    I saw EPM as a guy who was not going to backdown. That wasn't going to happen. He'd walk away but no way was he going to skulk away. <p> I saw the black kid as someone who had talked himself in a corner. He had insulted an old man, expecting the guy to be intimidated by a young black guy and it backfired. He was now being called out by an old white guy and he thought he was losing face (obviously he had self-esteem issues because I know a lot of tough black guys who'd just let the old man yap away - why prove something you know?). <p> My one question is how did the fight start? I mean, the white guy says he isn't a racist so did he say something racist or was both or either just acting like assholes?

    Three figures appeared at the end of the main drag and surveyed their options. Overturned cars and debris cluttered the street. They could here faint music somewhere up the road.<p> “Priorities?” Vader spoke. <p> “Liquor store.” He said. Stabby nodded in agreement. <p> After the horde was dispatched so easily Vader knew his options at getting a review of Shutter Island were narrowing. The Oracle had predicted a similar event. Vader would have to choose his moves carefully. Stabby had already scene the movie so the review was of no interest to him. He was however an adrenaline junkie and knew that if he stuck with these two marauders long enough some shit was bound to go down. <p> As the trio moved up the street the music grew louder until they came upon the only building that had any signs of life in it. It was a dive bar. Rowdy laughter and the occasional scream erupted through the door. They moved past. If they could find the liquor store and move on without confrontation that would be the plan.<p> To none of their surprise the liquor store was stripped. They would have to face whatever was behind that bar door.

    I agree with several things above... I DO disagree that what EBM said was tantamount to throwing the first pinch. There was a LOT of shit being talked here, and nary a cool head between them... AND the law agrees with me on that, I should point out. You don't get thrown in jail for talking shit (unless it's to a cop, of course) you get thrown in jail for physical assault. <P> Neither one of them is a stellar example of malehood... but what I do find interesting is how the kid won't shut the hell up about how he's going to beat EBM's ass. Uh, dude? You're LEAKING, as your female companion so eloquently points out. <P> MEN. Christ.

    the exchange happens before the clip. It's clear that the white guy offered a black man payment to shine his shoes. It's not clear if the black man who challenges is the prospective shoe-shiner, but he has taken offense to the idea that a black man is offered money to shine the old white guy's shoes. It's not even clear which shoes are in question, since the old guy is clearly dressed inappropriately for dress shoes.

Neither one is in the mood to be confronted by anyone today. And it just so happens that they had to run into each other. <p> I think it is just to easy for us (myself included) to judge them based on one video.

    Before they stepped to the door each man readied himself. Stabby was covered waist to shoulder in varied blades of all shapes and sizes. He drew a small throwing knife from behind his back and palmed it. Vader had picked up a police issue belt somewhere along the way so he was equipped with pepper spray, a tazer and a nightstick. He kept the spry concealed in his fist. “The blade” was to large to conceal so it was left on His back.<p> He stepped through the door and looked over the group. The scene wasn’t so different from the thousands of strip clubs he had been to. Two gorgeous women writhed on stage buck naked while “floaters” hollered and grabbed at them. Oddly, the girls didn’t seem to mind and almost enjoy the vulgar attention. They were total whores or were talented actresses. <p> There was something “off” about the whole bar but it wasn’t obvious at first. As they made their way to the bar heads turned and studied them with each step they took. At the far corner a figure sat at a dark table. He swigged a beer and knocked on the bathroom door. water_shit_anderson poked his head out. <p> “What?” <p> “They’re here.” TakingScorpiosCalls answered. <p>

Colon_El was behind the bar.<p> Colon_El said, “Who the fuck let you in here?” <p> “We ‘let’ ourselves do whatever the fuck we want.” Stabby informed him. <p> “Not in this bar.” Colon replied. “We’re gonna have to check with the man.” <p> While Colon spoke they caught Six Demon Bag posting up at the end of the bar And TedKordLives was now looming over them from behind. Vader looked down at the spray in his hand and back at Him. He slowly shook his head waiting to see where this was going. <p> A light flicked on close to the stage revealing a slim man seated in a chair. A nude redhead with a beautiful ass knelt before him. Her head bobbed up and down. <p> “What. The. FUCK…….are you doing in MY town?” It was Geoffrey Arend. <p> Arend said one word, ”Ladies.” And with that the girl who had been blowing him and the two women on stage stood straight up with blank gazes on their faces and slowly moved toward the trio at the bar. <p> Stabby jumped to his feet. Vader saw Sixes pull a sawed off shotgun and steady it. In one motion Vader grabbed Him and flipped them both backwards off there stools seconds before the sawed off exploded into Stabby’s chest. TedKord put a foot on His chest and pointed a .45 longslide at Vaders face. <p> “Don’t.” TedKord said. <p

I don’t want them to enjoy this to much.” Arend ordered. <p> Sixes and Teddy held them down. Christina Hendricks slammed her heavenly jugs around His head engulfing it entirely. He screamed but sweet, sweet tittie meat filled his mouth. Stabby regained consciousness on the floor. The legion of knives on his chest had acted as a sort of bullet proof vest and only one or two pellets of shot had actually hit him. His relief was short lived as ScarJo slapped her sopping gash onto his face. She was so wet he began drowning in her juices. Olivia Wilde had Vader’s dick in a death grip. She was in a reverse cowgirl position but was sitting on his throat. <p> The lights were growing dim.

They staggered to their feet and stood in a state of confusion and embarrassment. Sixes, Teddy and Colon_El held fast like statues along with the rest of the horde of floaters that inhabited the bar.<p> He, Stabby and Vader were still held in place. <p> “What’s going on?” Vader demanded. <p> “It’s mind control.” Scorps explained. “Arend has had these women under some kind of spell.” <p> “I knew it!” Stabby shouted. “How else would a woman like Christina Hendricks ever give that scarecrow a second look”. <p> “What’s with the guys?” He said. “Why are the women free but the guys are still being controlled, and how are you not affected?” He asked Scorps. <p> Scorps removed his ear buds that were connected to his phone. “I have these and it seems that Arend was only controlling the women.

The medal he gives Debbie is a Mexican medal. He was either awarded it for fighting he did on behalf of Mexico or, more likely, took it off of a dead Mexican soldier since he has been a bandit. That medal holds no sentimental value.

    Hey Conti. Here is the conclussion to Day 1

    by MacReady452

    “You stupid fucks have no idea what you have gotten yourselves into.” A man stood at the door that led to the basement. He was in shadow. “You must be Republicans.” <p> The song on the juke box changed and “You Don’t Bring Me Flowers” came on. This is what had put Him on alert the second he walked through the door. Why was this shit-kicking bar playing nothing but Barbra Streisand? Why were strippers dancing to “Evergreen”? <p> James Brolin grabbed Scorps in a choke hold and pulled his ear buds out. Babs stepped through the door. <p> “UGGGGGH!” Everyone in the room groaned as she walked in. Even the mind control she was wielding over all the men in the room couldn’t mask the actual disgust they all had for her. Even Brolin vurped a little. <p> With the raise of an eyebrow Babs had everyone snap to attention. <p> Stabby put a knife to Colon_El’s throat while Colon poured 151 over Stabby’s head and lit a match. <p> He pulled “the blade” and raised it over Vader’s head while Vader pressed the tazer against His balls. <p> Sixes put the sawed off against TedKords temple while he did the same with his longslide. <p> Brolin started squeezing Scorps throat. <p> Babs spoke. “The Oracle thinks YOU can eliminate me? What a joke. Arend had no control over the abilities I bestowed upon him. He was weak, infatuated with a pair of tits.” <p> “Glorious tits.” Stabby corrected. <p> “ENOUGH!” Babs shouted. She raised an arm in preparation to deliver the deathblow to everyone in the bar. The “floaters” drooled in anticipation waiting for the blood. <p> Suddenly the bathroom door flew open. <p> “Hold it right there you beak-faced harpy!” water_shit_anderson roared. <p> Diarrhea fanned the door rapidly sending a waft of noxious turd gas through the bar. <p> Streisands enormous schnoz drew a deep inhalation of shit odor and it was to much for her to hold all of her concentration. Brolin released Scorps and made a grab at Streisand. His right hand dug two fingers into her eye sockets while his left gripped her mouth. With one easy pull he ripped out her eyes and pulled off her jaw. She bled out in seconds. <p> “She actually looks better now.” Teddy shrugged. <p> Released from her grip, He, Vader, Stabby and water_shit stabbed, beat and farted on the remaining floaters ‘til there were none left standing. <p> Brolin broke down sobbing on the floor. Six Demon Bag, TedKord, and Colon_El massaged their temples, blinking their eyes, trying to get their brains back in order. <p> “AHHHHHH!!!!” Brolin screamed. He flailed around the room unable to regain any control over himself. He ran to the bathroom and plunged his head into the toilet bowl that was full of water_shits weapon of choice. The disgusting fluid filled his lungs offering the release of death he knew was his only way out. <p> “Wow.” ColonelFatheart said. “I’ve been serving that bitch drinks for a week now and it feels like my head is split wide open. Brolin must have felt like there was a wasps nest in his skull.” <p> “Who are you guys?” He asked. <p> “We’re the Pedalback.” TedKord replied. “Some Guy and Some Other Guy sent us to find you. The Oracle told them you would be here. We got here a week ago and that bitch had us under some kind of spell.” <p> “I’ve been faking it the whole time.” Scorps said. He spit on the ground. “I actually had to go down on that monster.” He held back tears that not one man would blame him for shedding. It was at this point many began to suspect he was more powerful than even he himself knew. <p> “Let us make it up to you.” A voice came from behind the bar. Christina Hendricks, ScarJo, and Olivia Wilde (still totally nude) emerged from their hiding place. <p> “Take your pick.” He said to Scorps. “You’re batting lead off on this one. You earned it.” <p> “You guys start without me.” Diarrhea said. “I’m gonna be a minute.” He disappeared back into the bathroom. <p> The room erupts into laughter. <p> *Freeze shot** Start theme*

    Ok Subs, not to beat this SEARCHERS thing dead

    by Continentalop

    But I suspect that Lucy was Ethan's daughter, or could have been, for these reasons: <p> 1) Lucy is fair-haired; the other two Children had dark hair if I remember right. <p> 2) Ethan actually gave Lucy an actual locket - sure it turned her neck green but that was back when he was broke he got it for her. When Debbie asks for a locket Ethan improvises and dives her a gold Mexican medal he probably took from a dead soldier. Lucy's was a thoughtful, intentional gift; Debbie's was a spur of the moment fancy. <p> 3) When Ethan returns to his brother's farm and realizes the girls are gone he calls out "Lucy, Debbie, Lucy...Lucy. Lucy." That is 4 Lucys to one Debbie. <p> 4) When they locate the Indian camp Ethan pushed the idea of a raid. Clayton points out the Indians will kill the girls during a raid and suggest that Ethan wants that. <p> Ethan has already hinted that Lucy has been raped and that a white woman raped by Indians should be put to death, but he has also said Debbie is still to young for th to touch. So why do a raid that will kill both if Debbie can still be saved before she is "shamed"? Because Lucy is the one he is really worried about at that moment, his possible daughter. <p> 5) Finally the discovery of Lucy's body really shocks the hardened Ethan. It could be because of what they did but it could also be because he thinks she might be his daughter. <p> I admit none of this is concrete evidence but they are enough circumstantial evidence to make it plausible that someone would think Lucy might be Ethan's illegitimate daughter.

    I'm going to bed myself. But first: <p> Alexander Nevsky is a very interesting film. Remember to watch it for what it is: USSR war prewar propaganda against Nazi Germany. You'll see a lot of allegories between characters and situations in that film and what was going on historically at that time <p> Blackboard Jungle isn't that impressive of movie but watch a bunch of movies that came out around or before that film and you'll understand why "Rock Around the Clock" seemed so bold and powerful when it comes blaring on. <p> Shaft's soundtrack is awesome but I prefer Curtis Mayfield's Superfly. <p> Never saw Man With the Golden Arm. I've seen Man With the Golden Gun many times. <p> American Graffiti will surprise you. I mean Lucas made this? And if you get a chance, watch the Italian film that inspired it, Fellinni's I Vitelloni (if you haven't already).

    Watched OLDBOY last night, and funnily enough throughout the opening credit sequence (with ticking clock imagery) I was thinking this is pretty damn good - so my vote is for OLDBOY. It got the headlines for its live-octopus eating and graphic violence but that's just detracting from the CREDIT SEQUENCE!

    Plenty of other memorable credit sequences that I can think of - of course the Bond movies are a stand-out - but 'underappreciated' is trickier.<p> CONAN THE BARBARIAN's opening credits with the forging of the sword and the pounding Basil Poledouris soundtrack is pretty damn awesome and rarely spoken of so that might qualify?

    Yes, 'Lop, I agree RE: SEARCHERS

    by Subtitles_Off

    that Lucy might be Ethan's daughter, since it's obvious that there is history between Ethan and the woman his brother married. However, is he just teasing little Debbie when he first meets her by calling her Lucy? Would he really not recognize his own daughter? And, if Debbie, once kidnapped, has so little value to him, why continue the search for her long after he's found Lucy murdered? I don't really believe the whole "they're better if I kill them because they're ruined" argument. I'm not saying he isn't motivated by that but, deep down, he's dealing with other issues. Issues that are more directly tied with his relationship to Martin. <P>I've got no real concrete evidence for my interpretation, either, and I should've paid more attention to the details regarding the foundling Martin's discovery and rescue. My theory is that Martin is the son of a woman Ethan loved who, herself, was kidnapped by Comanches. When Ethan tried to rescue her, she was murdered and scalped, leaving only the child - a surrogate "son" for him and a connection to a lost love - for him to save. The problem with this theory is it lessens the "lost love" aspect between Ethan and his sister-in-law by presenting another woman as his chief motivator. Was Ethan just a horn-dog in his youth?

    by Subtitles_Off

    about the relative value of the gifts, it's the military - therefore, the macho - value of the medal that, I think, would make it more meaningful for Ethan (even though he insists otherwise, saying something to the effect that it's worthless). The nationality of the thing is even more important because it represents his anti-Federalism, his anti-Union Confederate oath, his INDEPENDENCE.<P>I just think Debbie becomes his chance at a "do-over." It's the only explanation that makes the iconic image of him lifting the adult Debbie into the air more than just an awkward character flip. That's been his goal all along, to save her, to redeem himself, no matter what racist, manly, rugged shit he's used to convince everyone else to stay away from him.

    ...I read an interesting article about sleep cycles...

    by FlickaPoo

    ...recently. The gist of it was that everyone has an internal clock, that runs on a roughly 24 hour cycle...but most people's internal clock isn't an exact 24 hour cycle...you might run fast or slow...say a 23 hour or a 25 hour cycle.<P>Anyway, whether your internal clock runs fast or slow determines whether you are a morning person or a night person.<P>If your clock runs fast you are a morning person. If you get up at seven, you'll get sleepy early...and once asleep you'll want to get up early. Left to your own devices in a room with no natural light your day would be less than 24 hours long.<P>If your clock runs slow, you are a night person. You want to be awake for longer periods and sleep for longer periods. You're constantly struggling to fall asleep at a reasonable hour...and struggling even harder to wake up when you should. If left to your own devices in a windowless room your day would be longer than 24 hours.

    See I still don't know about the medal. The coins in his bag are Mexican with the image of Maxmillion on them - same as the medal. I think it is just something he plundered. <p> And I really don't think he was planning rescuing Debbie all along. The guy is a hardcore racist who believes a white woman is better off dead than with a buck. He could never stand the thought of her having been tainted by an Indian nor living with them, especially after she had been Scar's wife. Only Martin's civilizing words (ironic, since he is the one with "savage" blood in his veins is able to change his mind. <p> See this why I love this movie. You can spend hours debating each other about how to infer or interpret each scene and each character, trying to figure it out. Can you do that with f'ing Transformers or Valentine's Day? Fuck no.

    Well, see, 'Lop, that's my ratings system.

    by Subtitles_Off

    There are a lot of undeniable masterpieces that I struggle with because the flaws are too obvious to me, and THE SEARCHERS is one. I don't like every nuance of a film spelled out for me, either, and I agree that varying interpretations can enrich a work of art, but I believe there is an intent. I believe the artist knows which side of the argument he favors, and it's his job to resolve those arguments. Not everything has to be clear-cut. Not at all. Particularly with the times in which THE SEARCHERS was made. I think it's remarkably nuanced, and it is aimed at a specific time and mind-set.<P>The flip-side of that is that it risks becoming dated.<P>The reason I knocked a star off has nothing to do with the above, though. I think THE SEARCHERS is flawed, for me - you've already pointed out why you disagree - because the two types of film - serious western drama and cornball romantic comedy, complete with doofus sidekick characters - don't cohere seamlessly.

Gay men being "fabulous" and women buying shoes. Those're my other knee-jerks.<P>That's not my uncle's fault, either.<P>I feel unburdened.

    IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE

    by Subtitles_Off

    Awful, awful, awful, awful movie. Manipulative and trite. Second only to FORREST GUMP for Greatest Piffle Ever.

    IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE

    by ColonelFatheart

    Manipulative, trite and damned shattering. Deserving of its classic status, despite the treacle. That bit where George is at Martini's bar praying for help is damn fine acting and directing.

    Wow. Nice... shirt... <P>Do you work out?

  • Feb. 21, 2010, 11:58 a.m. CST

    Alright, that's been my two cents this gorgeous Sunday.

    by ColonelFatheart

    Good seeing you all for a bit. I'll try to drop by later. I also saw SHUTTER ISLAND last night, but I'll hold off on my opinion until Some Guy and Some Other Guy weigh in.

    Yes, great shirt, Vades!

    Great tee-shirt.

    by Subtitles_Off

    I still have the original JAWS tee-shirt with the poster image silk-screened on it. Of course it doesn't fit, and it's been washed to an indescribable shade of gray, but it is neatly folded and in the bottom drawer next to the black tee that has the iron-on, glittery Pink Floyd patch.

    Sweet, Col.

    I do work out. Occasionally. I got out of the habit last year, unfortunately, and recently have started trying to get back into a regular schedule. <p>Can't seem to bulk up my shoulders like I want, though.

    Gump does not exist in this dojo

    "Liiife is like a boxo choc'lates, yuh nevah know what yu gunner get"<p> Read the fucking legend that comes with it Gump! You know that little diddy sized menu. Know your coffee creams from your caramels you simple cunt.<p> And yes A WONDERFUL LIFE > FORREST GUMP.<p> Although I prefer MR SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON to both of them.

  • Feb. 21, 2010, 12:04 p.m. CST

    I'm out too...

    by FriendlyWaitress

    Still debating whether or not to see SI today... we'll see. <P> At any rate, time for a good dose of Vitamin D.

    ...from the sublime to the ridiculous...

    by FlickaPoo

    ...we watched more SPARTACUS last night...I never expected a TV show to be a great B movie. Last night's episode had a practical gore effect that caught me completely off guard.<P>That SWORD AND THE SORCERER sequel shou
