    Indeed, and then some....crashed and burned. By that point it was a chore to watch and I no longer cared. Fully zoned out by the time Hurt came along.

    Yeah, like in the angry sex they had on the stairs, then she pushes him off her and gets up to walk away, he grabs her foot cause he wants her to stay, and she pulls her foot away from him and leaves him where she found him.

    Bloke is insisting on watching Scanners. What a pile of poop. I'm drinking and lurking here to get through it.

    I wanna see the Minions movie.

    Fall to Grace: a documentary about former NJ governor Jim Greevey, who is trying to become a man of the cloth. It actually portrays him in a sympathetic light - he works with incarcerated women of color and helps them find work and housing when they get out of prison. He seems to be a bit of a manipulative people-pleaser, but he puts himself out there.

    Suite Française
    Set during WWII, it tells of a young French woman falling for the German officer stationed at her house during the Occupation.

    I admit that my main motivation for watching this was the lead actor (really hot. Even with a nazi haircut. Can't wait to see him in Far from the madding crowd, it's one of my favorite novels, and the previous adaptations were really disappointing), but I liked the movie, especially Michelle Wiliams, she's really gorgeous.

    Passage to Marseille. A good little war thriller: Bogart, Lorre, Sidney Greenstreet and the always excellent Claude Rains. It's about convicts from a French prison colony that escape to fight for France in her hour of need.

    Furious 7 - switched off and completely suspended my belief. It's very over the top and ridiculous especially the action sequences. But this is what the movie franchise is known for!

    I enjoyed it, I did miss Dwayne Johnson's presence. The tribute at the end was emotional and very sad. Tastefully done.

    How cheesy was the dialogue? I thought the Azerbaijan & Jason/Vin (at the end) action sequences were little too drawn out. The plot w/ Shaw's brother felt disjointed and weak.

    Personally I would rather see the franchise end here on a high note.

    Roll on Avengers 2!!

    The Homesman. Bleak movie. Makes me wonder what Laura Ingalls left out of her journals re: pioneer life.

    Also, an old one! "The Skeleton Key." Enjoyed it.

    Divergent-Dragged and dragged. To me it was a total snooze fest. But Theo James is fuckin hot!

    A Million Ways To Die In The West-I normally can't stand Seth MacFarlane, but this shit was funny as hell. Has a lot of A-listers and there are two other movie references in it that are hilarious.

    I recently watched Rikidozan: A Hero Extraordinary



    I found it very odd that Lou Thesz, Shohei "Giant" Baba & Antonio Inoki weren't included at all in the movie. I mean Baba and Inoki should've been in it as they are his true legacy.

    They went on to found two of Japan's most nationally recognized wrestling federations - New Japan Pro Wrestling and All Japan Pro Wrestling. Rikidozan trained them both to be wrestlers.

    It was a fairly good movie other than those glaring omissions.

    the translations of the dialogue can be a little weak at times. the performances tend to be a little over the top at times.

    But none of that is as important as the story. It shows us the path of one of the all time greats in wrestling, a true legend in Japan.

    Can't say enough how I was moved by his refusal to accept defeat no matter what the powers that be would order him to do.

    In 1953, Japan was in desperate need of a hero. After the national shame of WWII, the dreams and imaginations of Japan were captured by one man: superstar pro-wrestler Rikidozan. 5 foot 9 and 240 lbs of bulging muscle with a rakish smile that said, "Not only will I be just as good as you Yankee wrestlers, but I'll beat you at your own game." Billed as the villain when he wrestled in the U.S., Rikidozan was a national hero in Japan. At the height of his fame in the '50s and early '60s, millions of Japanese would be glued to their TV sets to watch his fights. "He's one of us, a Nihonjin (Japanese)," his fans must have thought at the time, "He's not afraid to stand up to the Americans." Strange then, that Rikidozan was in fact Korean, but would keep his true identity secret.

    After, being rejected from sumo wrestling because he was Korean, he went to America where he became an in ring sensation. Upon his return he made the biggest impact of his life on the people of Japan as they considered him to have conquered America, their wartime enemy. He was a national hero. He brought professional wrestling to Japan, where it has flourished ever since. In Japan wrestling is not a fad that comes every now and again, it's a rite of passage.


    it is said that 80 percent of Japan tuned into his match with Lou Thesz. That is like 70 Million people even in 1957.

    On December 8, 1963, while partying in a Tokyo nightclub, Rikidōzan was stabbed with a urine-soaked blade by a man named Katsuji Murata who belonged to the Yakuza. Reportedly, Rikidōzan threw Murata out of the club and continued to party, refusing to seek medical help. Another report states that Rikidōzan did indeed see his physician shortly after the incident, and was told the wound was not serious. He died a week later of peritonitis on December 15. It is rumored by Masahiko Kimura that his murder was in retaliation for when Rikidozan attacked Kimura during a wrestling match, after Kimura delivered an errant kick to Rikidōzan's groin, ignoring a pre-match arrangement and attacking Kimura for real.

    the real Rikidozan

    The original "Casino Royale" - was on this morning when I was getting ready for work. It's one of those films that I will stop whatever I'm doing to watch when it comes on. It is a hot mess of a movie - I think at least 5 directors worked on it before it was finally released. And it's main star (Peter Sellers) was apparently such a pain in the ass, that he was fired right before the film was finished (but I thought he was great).

    Other things I love about this film:

    Debut of one of my favorite songs: "The Look of Love" by Dusty Springfield.

    Scene where Sellers (as James Bond) has been drugged and in his haze sees a bunch of bagpipers. Walks up to one, who happens to be Peter O'Toole. O'Toole, looks at him and goes, "Are you Richard Burton?" Selles replies, "No, Peter O'Toole". O'Toole drily replies, "Then, you are the finest man who has ever breathed." and continues on with his bagpipe.

    Every scene Woody Allen is in. Already a master of timing and physical comedy. Awesome. Although, this was supposedly a miserable experience for him (shooting delays).

    Daliah Lavi, Daliah Lavi, Daliah Lavi, Daliah Lavi, Daliah Lavi, Daliah Lavi, Daliah Lavi.

    This great piece of trivia about how a huge rift started between Sellers and Orson Welles (who plays nemesis Le Chiffre):
    The rift between Orson Welles and Peter Sellers was partly caused by the arrival on set of Princess Margaret, sister of Queen Elizabeth II. Sellers knew her of old and greeted her in an ostentatious manner to ensure all cast and crew noticed. However, the Princess walked straight past him and made a big fuss over Welles. Nonplussed, Sellers stormed off the set and refused to film with Welles again.
