Two Surfer Bros Crash a California City Council Meeting to Request a 12-Foot-Tall Statue of Paul Walker

Late last week, two surfer bros — one apparently named Chad Kroeger (yup, same as the lead singer of Nickelback) and the other apparently named Bodhi — addressed the San Clemente, California city council and requested a 12-foot-tall statue of Fast & Furious star Paul Walker be erected on the city's pier. I'll pause for a second to let you soak in all of the glorious aspects of that sentence.

It's technically unclear whether this is a prank (I'm pretty sure it's a prank), but these Fast fans have actually made this same plea to a city council in Burbank, California as well, so it seems they won't stop until somehow, somewhere, a 12-foot statue of Paul Walker looks out over a city and unites us all in "gnarly times."

There's video at the bottom of the page, but if you don't feel like watching, LAist has transcribed it for us:

Ultra HD 4K Blu-rays, and pricing people out of a format

Simon Brew Nov 3, 2016

It should be a crucial Christmas for the Ultra HD Blu-ray format. But not with £30 being asked for Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates...

At a time when sales of physical discs are dwindling, and when studios can’t enjoy the kind of revenues that DVDs were throwing into their coffers in the early to mid-2000s, the release of a new physical disc format should in theory be something of a shot in the arm. Appreciating that it takes time for a new format to warm up, you only have to look at the £5 premium that’s generally slapped on a Blu-ray disc to see that, when done properly, everybody can win. Consumers get a choice between the resolution quality of their movies, whilst studios can attract a price premium, particularly out of those who really care about their home cinema.

And it’s people who

‘Kickboxer: Vengeance’ review: “Cheap, dull, and lacking in dungaree vests”

Kickboxer Vengeance review: Jean Claude Van Damme returns to one of his classics with Alain Moussi taking the lead.

Kickboxer Vengeance review by Andrew Gaudion.

1989’s Kickboxer was the film that helped establish Jean-Claude Van Damme’s star persona. That and Bloodsport demonstrated Van Damme’s athletic charisma if not much else. Built very much like an ultra-violent Rocky set in Thailand, Kickboxer has enjoyed something of a cult following in the 27 years since its release. It is easy to see why, it has that wonderfully tone-deaf balance between violent action and ridiculous cheese that only the 80’s could muster (I am sure we all fondly remember a certain dance number). As has been the case with many 80’s sport action movies, a franchise was quickly formed around it, but without Van Damme.

Now, in 2016, Van Damme has been lured back to the franchise he helped create (probably fancied another holiday in Thailand,

Film Review: ‘Kickboxer: Vengeance’

Film Review: ‘Kickboxer: Vengeance’
After a summer notable for many expensive action-movie disappointments in which even concepts traditionally associated with hands-on stuntwork (i.e. “The Legend of Tarzan”) were overwhelmed by CGI, there’s something refreshing about the admittedly dopey but good-natured, straightforward mano a mano of “Kickboxer: Vengeance.” This de facto remake of the 1989 martial arts favorite, with Jean-Claude Van Damme returning a quarter century later (albeit this time as the hero’s wise elder trainer), improves on the boilerplate original without really changing its essentials.

This revamp (which ignores several interim direct-to-video sequels Van Damme did not participate in) is a bit shorter, a tad more stylish, and utilizes the same clichés a little less ponderously. Brainiacs need not apply to this otherwise unreconstructed testosterone-a-thon, but of its type, “Vengeance” is well-crafted good fun — and good proof that you don’t need more than two hours or $100 million to give ticket buyers

Jcvd Is Master in Kickboxer Remake [Trailer]

Well, if you're going to remake an 80s action movie, you could do a lot worse than Kickboxer - especially with the current popularity of Ufc and Mma. So here we have it: Kickboxer: Vengeance an update of the 1989 classic which originally starred Jcvd as Kurt Sloane. This time around, the action star returns as the master while newcomer Alain Moussi takes on the role of student.

Directed by John Stockwell (a personal favourite of mine with credits which include Crazy/Beautiful, Blue Crush, Into the Blue and Turistas), Kickboxer: Vengeance sees Sloane travel to Thailand to avenge the death of his brother at the hands of the vicious fighter Tong Po (Dave Bautista) but not before training with Master Durand (Van Damme).

Guilty pleasures: a phrase that deserves to die




Who came up with the idea that we're supposed to feel guilty about the films, TV shows and music that we like?

Every now and then, I emerge from the Den Of Geek shed and take a mooch around other websites and publications. I tend to like them a lot. There’s nothing to keep us and me on our toes more than seeing the wonderful work being done around the internet. Because there is lots of it.

There’s also, though, a breed of article I’m decreasingly keen on. Anything that starts with ‘x reasons why this will be that’, or ‘why so and so will suck’. The content of said articles may be great, but the whole approach tends to put me off.

Yet there’s nothing on guilty pleasures, a phrase that, to my mind, seems invented by playground bullies to try and
