    I like Jackie Chan in basically anything and everything he does

    One of the most entertaining screen presences of all time for me

    Just imagine if Jurassic Park had a strong female protagonist like Meredith Vickers (Charlize Theron) from Prometheus in it.

    So a career-minded woman whose main motivation is "love me, daddy?" That sounds kind of on par with the complaints. :)

    oh, ditto, my main complaint with his Hollywood movies is there's not enough Chan and too much of those other bozos.

    That said, I watched one Jackie Chan movie that was really genuinely terrible. Not terribad and funny, just bad. I can't remember what it was called, and I can't even find it on imdb. It was a low-budget, early 80s cheesily sappy H-K romantic 'comedy'. I don't even think there were any fights in it. Lotta high-pitched wailing though.

    I watched the robocop remake

    that was intensely disappointing

    It's a perfectly serviceable action movie.

    But nothing more.

    I mostly enjoyed it, but the ending was really not the climax it was trying to be.

    Sam Jackson's scenes were a nice touch.

    I really disagree

    nearly every action scene (except the one with him fighting 209's and the one with him on the motorcycle) was super boring, and the main actor was INCREDIBLY terrible

    it also was something I hate which is "satire without jokes"

    like the sam jackson stuff was supposed to be a send up of bill o reiley but it wasn't funny or well thought out

    Total Recall just started on TV. Did anyone tell Goldsmith his theme starts out sounding pretty much exactly like Anvil of Crom?

    Also, credit where it's due: edited for content included the bystander on the escalator that he uses as a human shield. Nine times out of ten, "content" is sex and swearing, but the violence and gore stays in.

    This is the reboot of Total recall?

    The Sam Jackson scenes in Robocop were the only parts I actively disliked, actually. If anything, he wasn't acting nearly enough like a pompous blowhard to accurately emulate or satirize Bill O'Reilly, and him dropping the "Motherfucker" at the end really just felt like pandering. He's Sam Jackson, of course he says "Motherfucker", the filmmakers think. It didn't really work though.

    The rest of the movie had little problems here and there, especially the end sequence, but overall I enjoyed it. It was more of a psychological exploration of what would happen to a person in that situation than the over the top dumb gorefest of the original. But then, I don't like the original so that's where my point of view is coming from. It had no expectations from me that it had to live up to.

    I like the penultimate line of robocop because the old man cares enough to ask robocop what his name is

    To anyone inclined to watch such things, if you didn't know already:
    Michel Gondry interviewed Noam Chomsky and overlaid the audio with animation
    It's on Netflix and it's called "Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy?"

    RoboCop had some interesting ideas , but it didn't really do anything profound with them.

    Speaking of interesting ideas, saw Kingsman today. That, too, started interesting but turned to shit in the end. Like at least the whole last 30 minutes are just gak and it's topped up with a real turd at the end.

    Finally saw John Wick (it's on HBO now). Good stuff.
    He's just so... methodical. Shoots everyone in the head or the stomach three times and then the head. Guy he just ran over? Shoots him through the damn car roof.

    Honestly, the first action scene it happened, I went, holy shit this is brutal.

    Then it happened to everyone in the next scene, and it was still kinda entertaining.

    But then it was the same thing in everything scene and it just made the action scenes by the end of the movie seem a bit samey.

    I swear I could have sobbed about three different times during Inside Out if I had let myself

    that movie does not play fair

    one little thing
    did anybody else expect Sadness to rescue Joy and Bing Bong from the Memory Chasm? that "long-term memory retrieval" manual that Sadness was reading seemed like it would be a Checkov's Gun for that situation. I kind of think Sadness ought to have had a more active role in the climax.

    I think that needed to be Bing Bong's moment

    Joy and Sadness were only ever Reily, so when Joy gave over the reins to Sadness it worked for me really well

    Ok, so some of you may remember me admitting about a month ago that I've never actually watched Terminator 2.

    I, uh... still haven't.

    Terminator 2 is a genuine blockbuster action movie that is incredibly solid.

    The original still has more flaws, but I like it more as it is written more as a action horror movie.

    Okay, nearly three hours long, but that was a fucking intense movie; if anyone can pull off a blaxploitation western, it's Tarantino.

    This has to be the foulest blasphemy that is also hysterical:

    My brother is basically holding me hostage this week at some point until I've watched T2 in its entirety.

    I think we might throw in T1 also. I've actually watched it, but that was over 15 years ago.
