Watched this last night
Seen this on our local THIS channel, which has been showing some really great lost movies that are no where to be found on DVD. Since it was a censored version I missed some of the nude and sex scenes, but since I never saw the original it was fine. I started watching it and for the sure the Tarantino stolen/borrowed shots, scenes, backgrounds were very noticeable to me. Valrie is def a stunner. I see a lot of people bashing her performance. But, really she is playing a French exchange student that I would assume is in her early 20's. So, with that in mind I think she played the part well. Gere did a really good job in this. I like this Gere much better than the older Gere in that he took chances, he didn't play "Richard Gere" back then. This and American Gigolo are really cool, take a chance roles, that he stayed away from later on in his career. Too bad. Anyway a nice movie on a free TV station I would never have seen otherwise.
Point Break (1991)
How can you not like this film...
OK, sure it is just a big action film with a flimsy script and crazy stunts but.... it is filmed so great. It feels so summer in Cali. It makes you want to forget your blah zaa blah job, move to the beach and surf your azz off and have summer bonfires all night and party the night away. I have been reading others comments on why they can't understand the guilty pleasure about this movie.... Duh that's the whole idea. Yes you can like movies that have you thinking about this and that at the end. You can have movies that astound you. And of course you can have movies that can make you feel like you had a great F'N experience. This is what this movie is. Eat your popcorn. Dive into it AND have a great time. Who cares about the social impact. Enjoy it and think about this. Sex Wax! If it's in the movie, it's a FUN movie! Holla
Tell me what was happening?
I rented this movie the other night, and I'll be damned if I still don't have a clue as to what is going on throughout this movie. Without getting into any spoilers hopefully, all I can say is that when watching other movies similar to the way this story is told in which it seems to jump around with no clear direction, just didn't work for me. I kept waiting for all the pieces of the story to come to a conclusion, but when it finally does (kind of), the story I think should have ended. It doesn't and that just leads to more confusion. For a low budget film I do think that the quality of the movie itself was pretty good, although the sound at times was annoying. Sometimes the music was too loud and the dialogue was drowned out. And I don't want to even try and figure out what was going on with Henry's facial marks??? I can't recommend this movie. I feel like I wasted 1 hr and 30 minutes.
The Real Bruce Lee (1973)
Got the 9 movie pack with Bruce Lee and Sonny Chiba at the local Wal-Mart for $5 and how can you wrong? Looks like the company that released it cleaned up the quality somewhat from what I have seen other reviewers say about bad copies. But what was funny was they put the black bars at the top and bottom of the screen to make it appear as though it is a widescreen version but for the footage of the Bruce Lee movies he made when he was a kid, it was a full screen copy so most of the actors heads were cut off. Nice. So this "documentary" was pure crap. The bad production values aside, the editing was truly abysmal. First thing the narrator says is that they took time and care to make sure the facts were correct ( or really they just pieced some junk together and put Bruce Lee's name on it.) Then he states that they have authentic film of... nothing the sound is cut and no explanation. Oh well. So the 4 films of Lee when he was a kid is about 10 minutes of footage from each film. That's fine, but the narrator states in "Carnival" that they will show Lee doing some kung fu moves as a teen. Except for as he is about to do any of this they cut away to the next movie "Orphan Sam". So then they go into his Bio and basically skip over anything interesting. They said that Lee opened up his martial arts school and called it the "Bruce Lee Martial Arts Academy" which of course he didn't. In the background the wall reads "Jeek Kune Do". When I've only ever heard it called "Jeet Kune Do". Which is even more funny when the immortal Bruce Li footage shows him in the same exact room kicking the crap out of old out of shape extras, and he seriously misses some of his kicks and punches by 4 feet and the extras go flying across the room. So after this, with no explanation, they jump to "Bruce Lee" dressed up as Kato. 6 guys run into a building, two seconds later they run out and 1 guy has a bag with him. Lee jumps out in front of all 6 and they jump cut to them all on a rooftop and Lee is kicking the crap out of all 6. No idea what that was all about? Me neither, and the narrator gives us no reason either. My guess was that Lee would leave the set of the Green Hornet in his Kato costume and beat up guys that robbed banks in broad daylight using no weapons? They give us more footage of Bruce Li and say that no one can replace Bruce Lee, but Li is when of the best known imitators out there. So they show Li kicking some losers butts for awhile and basically rip on him for trying to be the next Bruce Lee. They gave us "the newest sensation" (or you'll never see this guy again in any movie) Dragon Lee. And that the producer found this man and Dragon Lee will be the next Bruce Lee and an international superstar. What follows is basically a rip off version of Chinese Connection. Anyway for $5 if you can grab this it is well worth the laughs. Plus the Fist of Fury is in pretty good condition and the Sonny Chiba "Street Fighter" movies are 70's Karate classics.
