I know that there are alot of Summer Glau fans out there. But i gotta say, Inara is not only the untouchable beauty of Firefly, but i would even put Kaylee second. She is just so upbeat and bubbly! Personality goes a long way for me, when it comes to what is sexy.

Hudson Hawk



1991-hudson-hawk-poster2

Directed by: Michael Lehmann
Written by: Steven E. de Souza, Daniel Waters
Cast: Bruce Willis, Danny Aiello, Andie MacDowell, James Coburn
Studio: TriStar
Genre: Action, Comedy
Official Site:
Plot: Bruno gets too big for his britches and Hollywood lets him know it.

Review:

By the time the 90′s started, Bruce Willis’ career was about to explode! But, not before a two year period of “swelled head syndrome” came close to destroying it for him forever, with the likes of Look Who’s Talking Too, Bonfire of the Vanities and his most infamous box office misfire Hudson Hawk...[more]...

The Punisher (1989) - Review

458638-punisher_1989

There will always be debates when it comes to Marvel's biggest bad ass vigilante Frank Castle, aka The Punisher. #1 on that list will be "Why can't they translate him to film?" But second will always be "Which of the bad versions is the best?"

The first attempt was brought from the sewers of New York way back in 1989 by director Mark Goldblatt. (Who's only other feature before or since has been Dead Heat with Treat Williams and Joe Piscippo.) Many fans are quick to dismiss this attempt mostly due to the fact of it's low budget and missed box office appearance. But the truth is that it is not only worthy of mention in regards to the later "reboots", but in my opinion is actually the best.

Now, first let me assure you that I am not saying that this film is great. Rather, I am only stating just how bad all three are and this stinks the least.

First, lets start with The Punisher himself. In regards to the demeanor of the character, I would have to say that Dolph Lundgren's portrayal fits somewhere between Stevenson in Warzone as best and Jane as worst. All three bring a nice touch of their own and one is not head and shoulders above the others. But, Lundgren broods the best of the three actors and the script for his film allows him just the right amount of dialogue with minimal cheese and a couple of bad ass lines to boot.

The supporting cast is not very good, but then again anyone who tells you that this isn't the case with the other installments is highly biased. The one shining piece is definitly Louis Gossett Jr. as Castle's ex partner. Gossett plays his part like he is totally unaware that this movie will be anything less than a box office smash.

The action although poorly shot is actually the best of all three movies. There are shoot outs, car chases and hand to hand battles throughout the entire feature and this is where I believe this one rises above the other two. The action never plays second wheel to the story at any point, like it does in Warzone. As for Thomas Jane's film, other than the first half hour which was great, the rest of the film felt more like an episode of The A-Team than The Punisher.

Goldblatt was never given another movie after this for a reason. The work in this film is not awful, it is just... well, nothing really. There is nothing to identify this movie with his signature. It's all shot very by the book and he certainly cannot direct an actor. Although I think that the dark and grainy look of the picture actually help the feel of The Punisher, something tells me that it wasn't done so much on purpose, but due to lack of experience and knowledge of the craft.

Another high point that helps raise this one above the other installments is Dennis Dreith's score. The 2004 score by Carlo Siliotto isn't bad, it just doesn't fit the intensity that a Punisher film should have and to be honest Warzone is just so bad in every way that I must have forgotten to listen for that soundtrack all together. I actually have the 89' score on my ipod and I assure you that if you listened to it, you would not even have a sense that this came from some "low budget comic book film". There is even a catchy theme that plays throughout the running of the movie. Something that seems all but forgotten by many composers these days.

The Punisher deserves a fair viewing by comic and action fans before it is so casually discarded. It is a fun hour and a half that I have ventured into on several occasions over the years. Give it an honest try with an open mind sometime.

But, there was never meant to be a sense of "comedy" when they were included in the comic, which is how they chose to portray them in the movie to make the entire audiance either laugh like many did, or groan like my brother and I did. Including exact moments from the source material in the film wasn't what mattered to me, it was how they completely missed the "feel" of them. I guess it's all how we each picture "faithful".

I don't know, I loved both scenes. I view Lundgren's The Punisher as a Punisher, but not THE punisher the same way Halle Berry's Catwoman is about A catwoman but not THE catwoman.

The Fifth Element



1997-the-fifth-element-poster2

Directed by: Luc Besson
Written by: Luc Besson
Cast: Bruce Willis, Gary Oldman, Ian Holm, Milla Jovovich, Chris Tucker, Luke Perry
Studio: Columbia Pictures
Genre: Sci-Fi
Official Site:
Plot: Bruce Willis drives a cab, Milla Jovovich has never looked hotter and Chris Tucker has never been more annoying.

Review:

Luc Besson is personally responsible for one of the biggest most misunderstood action/sci-fi hits of all time. The writer/producer/director mogul has had what many would consider a seesaw career. He has played his parts in lows the likes of Banditas and Arthur and the Invisibles and highs such as Leon: The Professional and most recently Taken. But, the film that he will possibly always be most notorious for is 1997’s The Fifth Element...[more]...

Rambo



2008-rambo-3

Directed by: Sylvester Stallone
Written by: Sylvester Stallone
Cast: Sylvester Stallone, Julie Benz, Matthew Marsden
Studio: Lionsgate
Genre: Action, Adventure
Official Site: movies.break.com/rambo/
Plot: John J is really getting sick of bullies.

Review:

It's no secret that the character of John Rambo is one of, if not the most iconic of action heroes. So you may ask yourself why in the world would Sylvester Stallone, the man that made him famous over 30 years ago (my god) take such a risk as to try and make him relevant again after a 20 year absence from pop culture. The answer is simple. Because he is the one and only Sylvester Stallone and even if it turned out awful, we would have still loved him anyway...[more]...

I'll probably get attacked for this one but I always saw this as the better version of Rambo 2. I mean yes First Blood Part II came out first and all that but I thought this movie did a lot of the things that movie did, but better and same thing with Rambo III which is why I don't really like Rambo 2 all that much personally. Anyway, nice review man!

^ actually, Cochise, I think you've got a point. To me, this is the best of the Rambo sequels.

brianandmichelle
brianandmichelle at 07:38 PM Jul 23

I think it's a matter of which Rambo you prefer. For many years people have prefered "action" Rambo, therefore there is alot of love for part II. But I agree with you guys. First Blood will always be the best for me because it is an action story within something else, that II & III were lacking imo. This one goes back to more of that feel and it is my second favorite of the series too.
