    Roger: We're having puppies, too.

    You just heard about this? Protip, don't watch the kickboxing reboot btw, it's the visual equivalent of getting ass raped in jail, a jail you were sent too on fabricated charges.

    I saw (got bored, vodlockered it)...I don't know what made them think it was a good idea. At some point they had to realize they were strapping wings to a turd. I guess by that point, it was too costly to just drop it, so they finished and hoped they could recoup some money. Directors need to stop trying to cash in on old movies that were done better, and with a more charismatic, believable cast.

    Now...Bloodsport remake's premise in this day and age would turn into "Taken" in the first 20 minutes. Think about it: Some guys in HONG KONG are hosting a JAPANESE martial arts tournament to decide the strongest woman in the world (tm)? That has "show up and we'll kidnap your ass into a human trafficking ring so fast your head will spin" written all over it. Nobody with any kind of sense would host a tourney under such sketchy premises if they actually wanted women to show up. Admiral Akbar's spinning so fast in his grave he's causing a damn continent-destroying whirlpool on his home planet.

    Why did nobody tell me Zero and Vergil fought IRL?

    Johnny hit him with that MASTODON power.

    I have nobody to play with, so I typically talk out of my ass.

    I know Southworth is a stuntman. Bosch still does some fight work, too, he was in Death Grips with Eric Jacobus.

    Broken Path is a Koichi Sakamoto joint, and so both Southworth and Bosch worked with him when they were Power Rangers.

    Richard Norton is so underrated.


    he was a beast in Spartacus.
    Forget trying to pass for normal. Follow your geekdom. Embrace nerditude. In the immortal words of Lafcadio Hearn, a geek of incredible obscurity whose work is still in print after a hundred years, “Woo the muse of the odd.” You may be a geek. You may have geek written all over you. You should aim to be one geek they’ll never forget. Don’t aim to be civilized. Don’t hope that straight people will keep you on as some sort of pet. To hell with them. You should fully realize what society has made of you and take a terrible revenge. Get weird. Get way weird. Get dangerously weird. Get sophisticatedly, thoroughly weird, and don’t do it halfway. Put every ounce of horsepower you have behind it. Don’t become a well-rounded person. Well-rounded people are smooth and dull. Become a thoroughly spiky person. Grow spikes from every angle. Stick in their throats like a pufferfish. -Bruce Sterling

    Was looking back at Eric Jacobus' channel and found this:

    I haven't heard from Thousand Pounds in a while. The last thing I saw from them was that TMNT homage fight scene they did. That was about 2 years ago.

    Yeh they did a really good job setting up the potential for turning this into some epic Fast Furious 8 movie franchise.

    Combat wasn't as good as the first movie but it's still well put together.

    I thought Batista and the deadpool chick were moving up, after Deadpool and Guardians of the galaxy. WTF. I know the paycheck couldn't have been that good for that cheapass movie. And don't get me started on JCVD himself.

    And the lead character.... what a boring poser! None, absolutely NONE of young JCVD's charisma and on-screen presence. A throwaway actor for a throwaway movie.

    Also those flashbacks....WTF. You KNOW a movie is bad when you get confused and can't tell past from present.

    Prison Fighters: 5 Rounds to Freedom on Showtime is pretty dope. I feel it tugs more on the feels more so than it talks about Muay Thai, but hey it's good.
