JohnnyBurnett posted a topic in Bad Movie RecommendationsEvening All, Still pretty new to the forum, but a long time listener to the pod. Just saw this monstrosity of a movie, and quite frankly I don't want to be the only one to have to try make sense of it alone...Allow me to give you Southern Pacino in the shockingly bad and weird toned... Misconduct ( 2016) - starring Josh Duhamel, Alive Eve, Malin Ackerman, Anthony Hopkins, Julia Stiles and Al Pacino. Directed by Shintaro Shimosawa ( producer on the Grudge and Grudge 2) Made on a budget of $11 million, it took 2.1 at the box office. Here's the synopsis: 'An ambitious lawyer finds himself caught in a power struggle between a corrupt pharmaceutical executive and his firm's senior partner. When the case takes a deadly turn, he must race to uncover the truth before he loses everything.' In reality its one of the weirdest examinations I've ever seen of a couple coming to terms with the loss of their child, the scenes between Duhamel and Alice Eve are bizarre to say the least, and the plot spends far more time concerned mostly with Dumahel running between his strange zombie delivery wife ( Alive Eve) and his equally bizarre, suicidal ex, Malin Ackerman, who is currently dating Anthony Hopkins ( the aforementioned corrupt pharmaceutical executive). Trying to follow the plot was, for me at least, really confusing. I'm pretty sure his wife was murdered half way through, but then seemed to be perfectly fine a few minutes later without anyone saying anything about it, not sure if I missed something??? But I'm mostly nominating this for being a truly weird Pacino choice, he is almost channeling Keanu Reeves' shameful Devil's Advocate accent, and whilst it's a pretty restrained Pacino, there's still crazy hair aplenty and an accent that slips constantly from line to line... I think it would make a pretty good follow up to Devils Advocate, and its been too long since they did a Pacino movie! Currently flying high with 7% on rotten tomatoes.
JohnnyBurnett replied to moldytoaster's topic in Bad Movie Recommendationsfuck yes, do FREAKED!! I completely adore this movie, the best Mr T performance to date in anything, as the Bearded Lady. (not taking the piss, he's great!) This would be an amazing candidate for a Punisher:War Zone / Crank2 Director Special. Alex Winter seems like a pretty open and reachable guy, would make a great guest.
Episode 102 — Tango & Cash
JohnnyBurnett replied to JulyDiaz's topic in How Did This Get Made?hey, not sure if anyone else has cleared this up yet but the bullet changing thing in the opening that doesnt seem to make any sense. This is actually a pretty blatent bit of plagarism by Sly, the scene is lifted almost wholesale from the end of an incredible chase sequence in the Jackie Chan Movie Police Story, except in Police Story that moment comes at the end of a chase and the vehicle is a double decker bus. initially Chan's bullets don't pierce the engine block, so he swaps out for armour piercing rounds and then shoots straight into the engine, it seizes and the bus comes skidding to a halt just in front of him and the crooks come crashing through the window. worked way better in Chan's movie, acting as a full stop to a way more impressive sequence. his movie came out 4 years before Tango and Cash.. Sly clearly just saw the scene and thought his character should do that too.kinda. can't find the bullet swap on youtube but you see part of the scene in this clip..
Doc Savage The Man of Bronze (1975)
JohnnyBurnett posted a topic in Bad Movie RecommendationsRight guys, some awesome suggestions in the thread at the moment, but none I feel rival this.. Doc Savage - the man of Bronze! here's the trailer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w2QQLVv7ghc If you're on a early published pulp/comic book characters -turned into films vibe with the Shadow coming up this week. This would be a truly perfect follow up. Former Tarzan actor Ron Ely's Adam West-Esque like delivery, the level 1 villain inexplicably having a weird man baby fetish complete with oversized crib, Doc's truly ridiculous phallic gold car, the horrendously fake green electric snakes and a whole bunch of casual racism..you need to cover this fucking movie.
