I'm honestly a bit mad that true Detective didn't go with the whole "occult origins of the United States railway system" pitch for season 2

this movie really shows john woo's ability to orchestrate all the aspects of a film under constraints. Van damme's accent too prominent? Film it in new orleans and say he's creole. Hyper-violent premise too unbelievable? Set it during a police strike in the notoriously lawless state of Louisiana. Low budget? Make the most of picturesque public locations and use a combination of talented young actors and solid character actors.

e: story a little light, just make every other scene is slow motion to get to 90-minute runtime

there is kind of an artistry to it. john woo uses slow motion like monet used light, like it's an integral part of the storytelling not just a cinematic flourish

In his Hong Kong era stuff, for sure. Here I was more thinking that the overuse causes an unintentional comedic effect. Like that one scene where the female lead (forgot her name rn) stumbles and it plays the scene over from like three angles in slow-motion.

Although all this made me reach a conclusion I'm not entirely thrilled about : John woo is arthouse Michael Bay.

Prof. Crocodile



lance henriksen use a thompson contender in the movie, which I think is meant to be a tribute to a character from john woo's masterwork hard boiled who used a smilar target pistol.

A target pistol seemed kinda out of place in hard boiled with all the hihg-octane gunplay but it really fits the hunting motif of this film and the character of the villain

It's a cartoon set to a Daft Punk album that they chopped into bits to release as music videos. There's a playlist of them on youtube that was linked from the song that youtube linked to me earlier. That's all I know apart from one or two of the more famous songs.

Jaguars!


Alright, lets go, beer accompaniment is Monteiths Pilsner,

One more time is playing to nice visuals of planets , theres a concert going on, it reminds me of the obscure animes that used to be used as filler at the end of the sunday cartoons, before thunderbirds and then black and white doctor who came on.

Jaguars!


A little more bland then the other one i saw, I guess because this is the video for a single rather than a more obscure track,

Oh, theres a meteor that turned into a ship and now invaders, maybe this is going somewhere afterall

Jaguars!


Ooh interesting, the invaders hijacked the concert, their soundtrack is much funkier, nice groove that makes you feel cool

Jaguars!


The invaders have kidnapped the band that was playing, they obviously planned this well because they had a laser guided crossbow that got one guy who tried to get away.

Much more upbeat house musc in "Digital love", it took me a moment to figure out the guy was the hero and not the invaders, it's hard to keep up when live updating.

Lol a spaceship morphing into a 747 is funny to my for unfathomable nerd resons, it's so mundane somehow

Jaguars!


Harder Better Faster,

Someone's transforming the kidnappees into normal humans (They were blue before)
I'm enjoying the eggs that are fired at them to colour their skin.
This moves very fast when viewed as a movie

Crescendolls

Extremely 80's electropop start, general 80's theme as the kidnapees are transformed into a pop band, I think the music producers are the bad guys but I keep missing important plot points

dammit I just missed all their names on screen while typing
