The four most over-rated things in life are champagne, lobster, anal sex and picnics. Oh, and that stupid children's book 'The Little Prince,' ugh.

I love The Raid 2. I especially love the badguy's name (drat am I a nerd):

I believe in a universe that doesn't care, and people that do.


When I got to that part of the movie it reset to the first one.

And the second one is a truly beautifully shot gangland film with some great brooding, moody moments. And more action scenes by the Raid team, plus one of the greatest car chases of all time. And Hammer Girl.

I love that The Raid 2 has a deleted scene that's a better action film than most mainstream releases in the last decade.

They smelled of pubs, and Wormwood Scrubs, and too many right-wing meetings.

So I twatted them with a magic yo-yo. Because, hell, why not?

On my way to watching something else on Netflix last night I accidentally watched Kindergarten Cop for the first time since I was a kid. The first 20 minutes contain a really fun Cobra-esque action movie that I really wish had continued instead of going to class. His shotgun has a laser sight ffs!
Cobra is a movie that's wondrous in its sheer stupidity. Everything is wrong, as if it came from a parallel, more idiotic universe. Police firing ranges are separated from the squad room by a glass partition. Cops hold high-level interdepartmental meetings in deserted parking lots at 2am. Serial killers form small armies and meet in Duran Duran videos to clang axes over their heads. Open barrels of flammable liquid are stored on rickety catwalks in steel mills filled with heat and flying sparks. Said steel mills are located in orange groves and have exactly one employee. Cars go just as fast in reverse as forwards at freeway speeds. You can grab a standing person by the throat while hiding under a bed. And that's not even getting into Marion Cobretti's pizza-eating habits.

It's all insane, and oddly loveable. Stallone genuinely believed this would start a new series as successful as Rocky or Rambo.

I gave Debt Collectors 2 a spin last night, and found it to be a very worthy, very punchy sequel to an already great movie.

If you're a Jesse Johnson/Scott Adkins fan, you know what the score is, and I'm telling you the duo continues to be on fire.

If you aren't, imagine a very, very white Bad Boys where the actors do their own stunts. The action is visceral and weighty, and there's a throwback to They Live in this film which is just perfect in every way.

For these reasons I consider Debt Collectors 2 to be a Walrus Certified rear end Slapper.

The Ninja joke was too good, I want Adkins collecting debts for a hundred years!

Oh nice, didn't even realize Debt Collectors(2) was coming out so soon. I guess I lost track of time.

In the world of this pandemic where you need lean, steam-lined productions and loose release models, Scott Adkins is King.

Speaking of, he did one of those Wired twitter question things. How could you not love this man? He's lovely.

The food stuff in Cobra is one of my favorite touches in that movie, because it can't be justified by tenuous action movie logic. I would love to know if the pizza thing and other weird food incidents in that movie are from Stallone himself.

The camera handoff shot is amazing, I love that the second operator is wearing basically a seat's upholstery so he isn't visible in the shot. That segment starts at about 1:50, but I'm not timestamping it - too much good stuff to skip any.

Fun thing about Legacy of Lies, which I noticed when I first found the movie earlier in the thread.

The initial promo blurb had him as an ex-CIA agent but he was turned into an ex-MI6 agent instead in the final movie.

My suspicion is that they didn't want him attempting an american accent.

He can do American but I think it's definitely on a different level as far as charisma when he's allowed to work with his natural accent. He just feels more comfortable and the dialogue sounds more genuine.

Yeah, he's absolutely more charming with his own accent. Which is funny considering his best role is him being Russian and mostly grunting.
