Haha I saw that was being released on the IMDB home page in a link down the side. I clicked on it, and there was Danny Dyer himself on the poster. My reaction was pretty much this:

Die Hard 5 kind of sucks. Or at least it fails to deliver on so many possibilities.

also, he doesn't say "Yippie Kay yah MotherFuker!" once in the movie.

Just saw Die Hard 5, thought it was good

Spoiler for dem spoilers:
I didn't like that part where John drove off the bridge and drove along the cars during the chase, he most definitely killed some innocent people there and he's the good guy

There were some swerves

The amount of vehicles and shit that were destroyed was insane


And I'm sure he did say Yippee Ki Yay when

Spoiler for when:
he drove the vehicle out of the back of the helicopter?

I might be wrong but I'm sure I heard him say it at one point during the movie

I think you might be right actually. I'm just not used to remembering things from a movie I watched with my brain turned off; Die Hard 5: no brain required.

Just finished watching A Bronx Tale. I liked the movie, but I had a difficult time sympathizing with Sonny. Also a little too many cliche's were used but overall a good movie.

And i come to you with a new sage of this Carpenter project, what it come next it's a really curious and strange thing:



For starters, yes, Carpenter made a Elvis bio-pic, in fact it's the first Elvis related movie ever made (take on account that this is just one or two years after his death). And even if is just a curiosity is worthy a few comments for a number of reasons.

First of all. Kurt Russell is Elvis in this movie, so this is the first colaboration between our director and Kurt, wich is important if you think the number of movies they have been done together. Curious enough, Kurt career began when he kick Elvis being a child in It Happened At the World's Fair so there is some kind of karma thing related to this. The transformation he suffer for this role is pretty amazing, looking at the same cover for the film you will note it. But this is not all, Kurt tries his best to pull gesture and manners of the king, take for example this:



He pulls his best in some moments, and that is because this is not about depicting Elvis (Wich will be difficult after just two years) he's trying to pull off Elvis the Myth, the figure, the king, so for this time i can accept this exageration. This goes to the point that the father of Kurt is in the role of Elvis's father.

This lead me to the second point, the film is pure Carpenter. And is and a.tipycal bio-pic for this idea i was saying before, Carpenter doesn't care for Elvis, the person, like he is about Elvis the myth. This lead to a fairly inacurated, earie, dreamy movie, the movie goes at the highs of exluiding the last 7 years of Elvis life. And the style is particularly special, i have been talking about the "classical" style in Carpenter filmmaking wich is present here, the difference this time is the photography wich is more dark and in some aspects, even dim for moments. So the idea is to re-inforce this surreal and dreamy aspects, because at the end we are talking about a myth

In some regards this approach can be explained because it will be really difficult to put a movie like this, putting all the elements of Elvis life just two years after death with all the boom still alive. But i believe that this approach work because this myth, like any myth, is just an idea, an archetype, so is malleable and probably out of reallity and is in line with this idea from Carpenter that there is not "role model" or a ideal good in society.

The movie is less of a project than an expriment. Carpenter play with his fandom for Elvis to make a character complex and human without putting him to shame, wich is noble but probably out of reallity (again, the idea in some regards) but wich is higly doubtful because reinforce this idea of a myth, wich is what Carpenter wants to analyse, not increase.



Next Movie: The Fog

Ranking

1- Assault On Precinct 13
2- Halloween
3- Elvis

I re-watched Black Dynamite today and jesus fucking christ, that's one of my favorite movies of all time. I was in tears from laughing on multiple occasions. Legitimately one of my favorite movies of all time, it's brilliant.
