    Any plans to have Doug Nagy back anytime soon? I think he would be great for The Avengers.

  • Cy-Ed

    I’ll second that Doug Nagy request. Make it happen Sean.

  • patrik

    I’ll third that Doug Nagy request. Having him back would be fierce.

  • jarny

    id fourth that and last chance harvey for hoffmans last great film

  • patrik

    You guys should watch The Sarah Connor Chronicles for the special as well.. It’s awesome. I seem to remember Sean loving it. I know Reed liked it.

  • Jonny Ashley

    SEXY BEAST!! You all gotta watch it and review it. I love this movie.

  • We’ve been trying to set something up with Doug for a while but it just hasn’t worked out. I wouldn’t get your hopes up.

  • Indianamcclain

    I’d fifth the Nagy recommendation.

  • Tomoo

    I know that when I was around 7 or 8 I would watch the movie Steel starring Shaq several times a day. I would also repeat my favorite quote from the movie “Well I’ll be dipped in shit and rolled in breadcrumbs” quite often.

  • projectgenesis

    It is clearly stated in Lockout that the “point” of the space prison is to test how humans hold up long term in deep space. The prisoners are lab rats.

  • Gerry

    The American blu of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is 6 eps instead of 7 and apparently missing half an hour of footage.

    What is it with American distributors of film and TV, dumbed down subtitles for films e.g. Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Let The Right One In and abbreviated TV show releases.

    If you like Veep then chances are you’ll like The Thick Of It, the UK political comedy that got Armando Iannucci the commision for the pilot and then the series Veep. In particular the two hour long specials, Rise Of The Nutters and Spinners And Losers have to be two of the finest hours of comedy I’ve ever seen. There’s more swearing in this show than in any other show in the history of TV.

    I’d also recommend a UK comedy called Peep Show to Frank in particular, since he gets / seems to like UK comedy (Steve Coogan anyway) and Sean since he liked The Trip.

  • Two episodes without any Celebrity Apprentice talk? What the hell is going on around here?

  • Hadn’t gotten all the way through Junk Mail yet. So as you were.

  • Michael Keaton witness Sean Young’s Catwoman “audition” firsthand. You can read about it along with James Woods’ stories about her

  • Owozifa

    I do find Magic Mike interesting because generally the only way media portrays male nudity or sexuality is for comic effect while female is often for sex appeal. That’s pretty straight male focused in addition to just not being very deep. I can take or leave Channing Tatum, but like Jay said the director could lead interesting places.

  • kyri

    I completely agree with Jay. Never trust anybody’s opinion especially when it comes too food and women.

    Always try them yourself.

    Sometimes I’ll still watch a movie anyway that got lots of bad reviews and word of mouth. Maybe not when it first comes out, but eventually I might – especially if I had been anticipating it before I heard any of these reviews, the plot just sounds intriguing, or if it’s a sequel, remake, or adaptation of something I liked. I also believe you have to allow yourself the possibility of seeing bad movies now and then or else how will you know them when you eventually do see them? It helps you develop your taste.

  • I’d just like to point out that the screenwriter of SOLDIER, the one who said his original script was meant to be set in the same world as BLADE RUNNER, is David Webb Peoples, who also co-wrote BLADE RUNNER (and UNFORGIVEN and 12 MONKEYS, etc.), hence making the whole thing sort of less absurd, in my opinion.

  • True, I think that’s a good point, although it might mean a little bit more if Blade Runner was his own original idea as opposed to being based on a Philip K. Dick novel.

  • Also true, though, while it’s been a long time since I read Dick’s novel, the film and the novel are very different, so I think Peoples (and Ridley Scott and Hampton Fancher) have some claim to creating the world depicted in BLADE RUNNER.

  • Gerry

    I just watched a movie that you gave a bad review, Lockout, and I really liked it. I thought the third act before the denoument was awesome.

    There was enough selflessness and character development in the president’s daughter for the film and Snow was more moral than the one dimensional Snake Plissken in Escape From New York.

    The music had hints of the Alien 3 music at times and the not cutting edge CGI didn’t bother me at all. If you take films on their terms you’ll enjoy them much more.
