Cause for Concern (2002)
This is Sick Crap Tis True But I'M LOVING IT!
I brought the movie knowing full well it would contain homeless dope addicts and drunks slugging it out. I live in Baltimore, Maryland and the fights and beat downs you see on this DVD is no worse than anything you see in the wrong parts of Baltimore or in any other major American city. Truth is when the rigid blinder wearing plastic liberal office mice all climb into their nice metal cages, or crawl into subway for their daily scurry back out to the relative safety of the their rich suburban gated communities BRUTAL REALITY REIGN'S ONCE MORE IN THE DARK Foreboding FORGOTTEN CORNERS OF AN INNER CITY. HAPLESS BUMS DRUNKS AND ADDICTS LURK LIKE INNER CITY PIGEONS, ALWAYS IN PLAIN VIEW YET NEVER TRULY NOTICED BY HURRIED DAYTIME SOULS SO ENGROSSED IN FULL MEANINGFUL LIVES THEY FORGET TO CARE! These Bum Fight videos are an unflinching look at the ugly reality of the pathetic lives some people CHOOSE TO LEAD under the cover of urban twilight! Being a total bum is a choice. I am disabled; I once lived on section 8, a tiny disability check, eating free government cheese, butter and such. I was poor but I had my honor and dignity. But I chose to live with dignity; I did not drink, do drugs, or engage in criminal behavior. I spent my money wisely so while I was not rich I survived nicely thank you. You see being poor is not an excuse to become a drunken bum. Being a drunken bum or an addict is a choice a person makes and they alone are responsible for their choice.
Last time I checked no one demands at gun point that a drunk drink himself silly. No one makes a dope addict shoot up. No one makes a crack addict light up. No one forces a crystal methamphetamine freak to destroy themselves. Bum's fight in these DVD's for weird reasons that make sense only if their weird twisted logic is used. Bums fight on these DVD's for the exact same reasons that motivate all the other lame self destructive stupid things homeless people do. Some chronic street people are into a self destructive lifestyle. Some bums enjoy living life on the edge because they like the thrill of cheating death or living life totally on THEIR OWN SELFISH TERMS! The DVD is funny to me only because these bums made their life choices to become dope addicted, homeless, drunken outcasts fodder for this type of DVD. Likewise these bums made their choice to fight and act up for the quick fix offered by a lame prize, pocket change or cheap booze. I would not have made such a decision for myself but, I don't fault others for doing things I would not choose myself. I do not do drugs but if someone else wants to do them I will warn them it is a bad choice and if they still want to be a dope addict I wave goodbye while watching them sail toward a date certain with personal and financial ruin. Bum's have the right to fight in these stupid DVD's for weak prizes if they want to because, of something we call personal freedom. If all the bum fighters in the DVD agree to the terms of the game they have every right to express and display their sick passions however they want.
I have no moral high horse. If all the bums in the DVD agree to fight and the film makers have signed releases from legally competent parties, I say let the games begin. We all know that increasingly what is legal in our free society is seldom moral. I say if you are offended by these DVD's on high tone moral grounds no one is forcing you to buy or watch the DVD's anymore than the bums were forced to take part in making them. If you don't like the bum fight DVD's steer clear of the DVD's do not buy them but, leave those who want to watch these Bum fight DVD's alone. For all legal activities like watching bums fight in a capitalist society, thriving markets exist with patrons aching to buy their vulgar wares.
These DVD's are no worse than watching toothless hillbillies and poor ignorant folk get provoked into staged fighting on the lamest trash TV talk shows. Bring hillbillies, poor blacks and whites to Chicago let them stay in fine hotels for a few days, eat in nice places and all they have to do in return is brawl on TV for a few minutes like the mindless thugs they are. Curse pull out each others weaves, tear off shirts, pants whatever, punch each other into bloody pulp and thereby reinforce the most negative stereotypes of blacks, poor whites in trailer parks and country hill folk. These Bum fight DVD's are just a variation on an ugly theme feeding a need in America for this sort of gritty no holds barred reality entertainment. The Blood lust is not new it goes back to Roman times. The blood lust in America is already wide spread and this Bum fight DVD is just feeding the need and people who hate these Bum Fight DVDS need to just get over it!
Atomic Twister (2002)
This is so Awful its funny.
I can't imagine how this film got the green light under any circumstances. One the plot is so bad I could not make it worse if I tried. Its about a nuclear power plant in a southern locale that gets close to a meltdown because of or in tandem with Tornados.
The thing that makes this movie so bad is it looks as if the nuclear power plant shots were filmed in someones basement. The pipes supposedly carrying radioactive water are way too small. The control room for the power plant look like the family room with a few more computers than normal. The pipes carrying water steam eto this reactor are way to small to fill be part of any reactor system. The door leading to the containment building is laughably small and thin.
If you know anything at all about atomic power this film is hilarious for all the just couldn't happen stuff you see going on in this movie. The movie is stupid. I can not imagine why anyone would want to buy it which is why I suspect AMAZON>COM don't even carry it and you can buy almost any DVD or VHS from them..
I Like Adrian Monk... I am VERY MONKish myself.
It would be hard for me to NOT like MONK since I am autistic hence very much like Monk. Unlike MONK whose focus is crime solving, the focus of my world is computers. I simple live to repair and diagnose unique computer challenges. Like Monk I have absolutely no social life at all.
Funny thing is I suffer from many of his same compulsions MOK experiences however I never saw them as "compulsions" before watching this awesome series. I like Monk because he is like a brother to me. If you have a child with High Functioning Autism watch Monk it might give you a few insights into what makes us tick.
Generally MONK is really funny and yet entertaining. Monk is just a little too timid for my tastes but other than that it is a fine series worthy of buying. MONK is on my to buy list for sure. You cannot go wrong with MONK.
The Missiles of October (1974)
Simply One of the MOST Compelling Movie Play's EVER!
I find this movie now on DVD one of the most compelling works of art it has ever been my pleasure to behold. This movie is from the less is more school. No high tech camera angles and silly special effects get in your way here. No stupid insipid love story tangles its way through the plot where some couple must give you today's obligatory R Rated steamy love scene at some point when you just wished the action would go on. This movie is just cold hearts, raw nerves, hardened steal will's of both sides exposed in abundance as the world of the early 1960's creeped toward thermonuclear oblivion in the Cuban Missile Crisis.
Brinksmanship and a world tittering on the brink of a testosterone cliff a fall from which guranteed no return to life as it existed before is what this movie was about. Missiles of October is told in a play format. The sets are obviously sets so you do not waste your time on the decorations of the people or the places. You simply are given a reference of where you are by the set. The real action is the dialogue the intrique in the tangled the goings on. This movie works on a level of raw emotion. The missiles of October is a movie stripped bare of the heavy syrup and confectionary sugar laden movies of today. The Missiles of October does not spoon feed the audience each moment of their movie experience till only one rather inexcapable formulalic conclusion offered by the screen writer can be reached.
The Cuban Missile Crisis was a series of mis-steps wrong judgement calls and finally at the 11th hour some common sense where. In this movie both sides The Soviet Union and the United States had to get off their high horses and admit we together do not want to end human kinds existence as a species on this earth and take almost every other living thing with us as we exit. The fact that the set's look deliberately cheesy and the acting is done as a play just makes the truly superior acting stand out and grab you all that much more. Oh to say I was pleased with The Missiles of October is to dabble in understatement up past your neck for I in all ways loved it such that I can not be without two copies of this in my home. One to watch and one to keep in a safe fire resistant place. The Missile's of October blew me away because it is true, this happened in real life. I was just a baby at the time but I lived through this time. This movie in play format is awesome because the acting was first rate and people this was high drama life or death stakes would have affected all of us had it gone wrong because it was all real life baby and no movie gets any better than that in my humble opinion.
Oh and its like way educational too so buy this one its one of the WOLF's major must haves like number one on my serious subjects list.
I, Claudius (1976)
A Meassage As Fresh Today As It Was When This Series Was Made
This is A Tale Told By A Man Smart Enough To Remain A Fool In A Corrupt Rome Where Smart Men Were Marked For Death! I Claudius is a tale told of accient Rome when it was all that and all roads led there. This was a PBS Series ages ago when this middle aged Wolf was a wee cub. Claudius was disabled in rome. He stammered in his speech and was slow in responding to the world around him. He also had a unique walk such that he was obviously disabled and back then because he was slow and different he was considered stupid. Claudius was anything but stupid turns out. Claudius was smart enough to work the prejudices of the ruling classes such that he made them so comfortable with his supposed dull wittedness that they began commiting the most horrid banal carnal and criminal intriques right before his very eyes.
Let me tell you there were intriques a plenty too. There was more back stabbing, killing, lying, murdering, duplicity, letchery, dibotchery, stealing, incest and every other brand or flavor of sin all going on with Claudius standing in its midst to rival that seen in the most corrupt corporation today. I Claudius depicts a corrupt degenerate Rome where Senators were for sale to the highest bidder. Claudius lived in a land where the people were dumb sheep easily lead to the slaughter pawns used in wars that made the nobles rich as poor folk spilled their blood in ill conceived campaigns based on lies.
I Claudius was much like governments of today filled with all corrupting intriques and selfish power mad people corporations wanting everything, Senators and political officials for sale to the man with the fattest wallet. All the while Claudius sat there taking it all in and in effect writing it all down. Claudius proved the Roman Empire did not just fall and it was not pushed. No I Claudius proves The Roman Empire fell because it tripped on its own tattered robes of arrogant consuming self interested contempt of everyone and everything else.
I Claudius has a message as true when it was made as it is today. The more the world changes in technology the more the world stays the same. I Claudius proves the demons living within the heart of the human animal are not brand new they are as new as tomorrow and at the same time old as the corrupt dying Roman Empire of his time. I think I Claudius is a lesson every modern day person should learn.
Pirates of Silicon Valley (1999)
A Fair Almost Funny Movie But No Big Deal - Geeks Would Love It As I Do!
A Movie The Proves One Should Never Look Under Rocks for FEAR of what might CRAWL OUT! This movie was confused it seemed to be conflicted as if it did not know for sure if it wanted to be a documentary on the rise of the micro-computer or if it was a tale about the personalities behind the scenes of the major software companies versus BIG BLUE/ IBM the once computer mainframe juggernaught.
The movie is a good one but rather schizo in its story telling. Also the ending seems sort of mechanically placed such that you do not really feel any sense of closure. Watching this movie is like trusting someone to take you for a boat ride across a river safely to the other bank and they force you to swim the last ten feet to the shore with no prior warning. I mean the movie was good and very informative loaded with lovely info.
I most love the way it made the young Bill Gates look like a plain grungy old geek who was not all together into cleanliness. Now Bill Gates is just a so stuck up old rich man who lives in a world where so plastic he can do no wrong ever. In this movie its very nice to see Bill Gates portrayed as something that was at one time a feeling human with beings real frailties, shortcomings and real human joys. It was nice to see Bill Gates portrayed as human and not god made me like him a little.
This movie makes one of the Apple founders look like a serious druggie fruitcake. The Apple computer business model showed some early flaws in this movie too which made me feel sorry for them. the movie had one seriously funny moment where Bill Gates offered the DOS Disk Operating System Developer stock in Microsoft or $50,000 and the jerk took the $50,000. Dude could have been a billionaire ga-zillions of times over had he chosen to join the early Microsoft team. I almost cried for that poor dear heart who threw away all that good money in what has to be the dumbest business decision in modern history.
The movie as I say was nice. It taught me a lot and for that I was thankful. I liked the movie but the way it ended left me feeling cheated. They should have played up the AND THE WAR CONTINUES TO THIS DAY ANGLE! which would have been a more fitting end in my most humble opinion. All this movies flaws taken into consideration it is still a fine movie worth buying if you want a history of computers with a little human touch thrown in. There are better histories of the micro computer videos out there done by PBS but this is ok so I gave it a 7 rating. Fair but no big deal.
Limit Up (1989)
I Loved Limit Up, But I Am Not Normal In ANY WAY & Proud Of It!
Most NOT all but Most so called Good Movies I leave thinking what the hell was that! What did it mean. What were they trying to say. What was the message. I leave most so called Good Movies more confused than words can describe. Granted I am autistic as such lots of what most people do, love and understand including movies usually go right over my head. Hence I am truly blessed when every so often Hollywood let's go of a gem like Limit Up.
This movie is simple with a morality tale of good and evil that is easy to digest and understand. I see so many so called great movies I do not understand for years after I have seen them then suddenly on a long boring trip on the cross town bus I hear fellow passengers talking about the movie describing its meaning in a way I can understand. Once I understand the movie I usually say ewwe, yuck or big deal so what. Must be a normal human thing.
Anyways like I said again this movies plot is not rocket science, its a really cool morality play occurring in the life of a trader on the Chicago Board of Trade commodity futures exchange. She sells her soul to get help being a better trader and is soon tasked to pay up. As the story goes on she learns her lesson. I must admit the very thing most people hated about this story I loved which is it did give me a basic core level understanding of and insight to the world of commodities trading that made me respect the role the Chicago Board of Trade and its activities play in our lives.
Funny thing is I recently visited Chicago and yes because of having seen Limit Up I had to see the Chicago Mercantile Exchange Building which is both huge wide and beautiful. I really enjoyed the movie and worked hard to find it. I finally found Limit Up used on VHS tape at Amazon.com at a cheap price too. You can find almost any movie on Amazon.com in some format. Again this is another case where a movie the Wolf loves the world hates but hey I have long ago accepted that I am a weird ole thing.
Eye for an Eye (1996)
If You Like Sally Field You Will Like This Movie
Technically this movie is nothing more than an overly obvious Charles Bronson get them back for doing you wrong movie done by a smart skirt wearing sensible shoes. That said if you LIKE Charles Bronson movies this one meets the need. The criminal is so completely rank, foul and disgusting that he totally fully and completely deserves to die for his crime(s). The plot is way to simple with a dolt for a police detective the justice system fails terribly at putting away an animal who brutally raped this sweet mom's daughter.
Set free by the so called justice system this rape mongering animal goes on to prowl and destroy another trusting lady in her home. He gets jobs as a delivery man for liqour stores, grocers and such so he can get lawful access to his victims homes once inside he becomes a mad man and does his business most foul then murders the ladies. I do not feel so sorry for the second victim as she was warned yet the fool did not listen to the warning instead choosing to let the grocery delivery man \ rapist into her home and she got his final delivery.
Anyway's there are subplots where you get into the family life of the murdered girl. The killer\rapist finds out he is being followed by the first victims mother and confronts her in a most horrid way in front of her remaining younger daughters school yuck. The mom's resolve now stiffened goes and learns how to defend herself physically and with a gun. The Father of the murdered child is a big bumbling wuss or as Drop Dead Fred would say The so called husband in this picture, "IS SUCH A TOTAL AND UTTER GIRL!" Technically calling this husband a girl is a total insult to girls because, some absolutely carniverous ladies would and could snacth a male attackers head off and hand it to him before he died so its a myth if you think all girls are weak timid things trust me.
Not to worry because Sally has it going on in this movie. She figures out the way to get this guy is not by just stalking & killing him. She uses the fact that he likes getting even. The mom visits his ugly nasty rooming house. Once there the murder child's mom tears up the murdering rapist's room. She takes a clay cookie the killer given to him by the mom's remaining daughter. the missing cookie alerting the murdering serial rapist that his first victims mom had again stopped by to visit and give his flop house dwelling that friendly complete tossing only a Real MOM can do justice to.
On cue and totally in character for this kind of sicko he came hunting the mom at her house and the sista was ready for him. Shower running fancy high tone music playing he breaks in, the silly goose. She surprises him a struggle ensues to which she does not look as if she would win when suddenly BLAM BLAM BLAM bad guy suddenly springs three leaks and in his last sick act he falls on top of the victims mother with his ugly bloody messy nasty scrawny self.
The dolt police detective gets his own back as the picture is ending as he tells the victorious mom, I know what you did you set him up and I just want you to know I am aware of it. This said he confers with his other investigators and labels this killing a justifiable homocide the credits roll thats it. I for one loved it. Sally Feilds has a voice that grates on your nerves after a while but she is always sweet and she did good in this film. The movie is nothing special unless you like seeing vile criminals get their just deserts and I rather love this sort of escapism.
He Was No Johnny Depp & She Was No Dummy, But HE WAS HOLLYWOOD!
This is Another Case Where the Black Actor Stole the Movie. Mannequin started out as another boring little movie about man finds girl. Ok man finds Mannequin has special real time relationship with her only when they are alone. Man ultimately gets girl. Ok it was really nice. The old Egyptian mummy thing was a great start to the movie was a way nice touch too, "Kufu Egypt just after lunch" a hoot that was for sure.
Anyway a gentleman named "Hollywood" the gay black male friend and fellow window dresser at the store where most these adventures happen stole this movie. Hollywood's scenes while stereotypically gay in the worse ways were none-the-less totally funny laugh fests. Hollywood is just a happy go lucky campy queen and part tyme Diva without DIVA-Tude whose sly prose support and comedic timing make this movie. Hollywood adds the spice the intrique and comedic shot in the arm this movie needed to be if not real then at LEAST Real Funny. In this movie I must pronounce Hollywood the last true Diva.
Hollywood was a great friend and a fun person with a heart of gold. The actress that played the Mannequin was a stunning beauty as well. I could see why any man would have loved the Mannequin as she was always a nice caring warm wonderful friend in here animated moments. By the time the movie was ending you totally wanted both Mannequin and husband to live happily ever after, <knock on wood!> Patented Evil-Wolf-Grin. Our Gay Diva Hollywood's greatest scene in the movie comes near the end of the movie as well when you see his car... and most notabily the car cover they are collectively a scream.
The movie is filled with all the expected weird wild crazy crackpot straight laced bisuness men, odd characters, pathetic boob detectives, animals and such to be most excellent filler. The movie has a simple plot that you won't need to have explained here as it is far from rocket science. All the characters in the movie do a good job in adding demension to the movie. Is this movie an Oscar calliber production definately NO WAY!. This movie is just a nice movie you can safely let your brain curl itself up around on a day when you do not plan to do much thinking and you just want to relax not be surprised laugh a little and eat bon bons, pop corn and the odd slice of pizza fresh or stale.
The Nude Bomb (1980)
Sometimes A Movie Seeks To Be Nothing More Than Simple Inane Fun!
Come on now, sometimes a movie seeks to be nothing more than simple inane fun! as is the case with The Nude Bomb. Let's face it you know going in this movie is farce it's just an enjoyable way to spend time you wanted desperately to waste anyway.
A movie about a dude in plumb paisley that wants to rule the world by creating a bomb that renders the world totally nude. Making the way clear for him to inflict his warped fashion sense on a now naked world get a grip its just fun. On the face of it the plot and the developer of the Nude Bomb sounds deliciously stereo-typical gay wanting to force feed a naked world his sense of high tone fashion.
However the movie is set in the hopelessly weird world of Control Agent number 86 Maxwell Smart and thats weirder than anything in gay life let me tell you. Max has to stop the nude bomb terror threat because, let's face it if the world was suddenly plunged into being seen in, "the all together", all the failings and small wonders of human civilization will be "exposed". Just think of the ugliest person you know now imagine you looking right at them when the first Nude Bomb hits... Yuck, gag me with a spoon. Now that I have you in a playful mood go buy the Nude Bomb movie and count your blessings if Agent 86 saves us from the Nude Bomb fright.
Of course the Nude Bomb would be great for the makers of Sport Utility Vehicle's if some men had to walk about nude because immense size and number of SUV's needed to rebuild shattered male ego's around the world would be huge.
