Bloodsport (1988)

– FilmSack Edition

 

Bloodsport (1988)

 

 

Opener:  Hello Son, mother and I have to talk to you at dinner about something very important. But first put this blindfold on and serve us some tea. (laugh) hehe…quite mother! this is serious…(laugh)..thank you son…relax….relax…FACE CHOP! ? Oh no…what have I done! and that is how I lost my first 5 sons mother…but you know that…you were there.

China, fight, style, honor, van damme, world, Hong Kong, monkey, break stuff, military, swing, torture device, sword, earn sword, blind, gambling, ogre, nerds, US, China, feet, sweat, tan, tall vs small, music, bandannas, Chant my name!, Father issues, crazy eyes, butt, control, blood, sport

Twitter:   Bloodsport (1988) Like taking the Dux / Paco Rib Foot Challenge .

Alt: Like Throwing your lost gambling money on the loser and walking away. 

Like trying to decipher a game of Death Threat Cherades…. before a round of Kumite…it’ll give you bad floating fatty tumor.

 I think that Ethiopian wants to kill you.

 

Bloodsport (film)

Stuff I Loved:

Opening character introduction montage

Didn’t they do this in The Quest?

Monkey Style. Chop the coconut.

How long does it take to train beating up ice blocks?

Is that English guy kicking down equestrian hurdles?

Vaseline lens

Come on Frank!

You just gonna stand there? Or are you gonna grab something.

Frank is a space cadet

Oh yeah…young frank is a goober. Plus..seriously dubbed. Looks like he is trying to sneak a fart.

You didn’t flinch…you got fighting spirit…or are you just stupid.

Why don’t you quit round eye!

Hey…I just got beat up…think about the future…I will make my father proud…Kumite!

Lost my first family…I beat them up.

We are going to study pressure points…but we aren’t going to use them.

I can do the splits!

Good thing he caught that punch to the head when he was blindfolded…cause that is how he lost his first family.

Beat you with a stick.

Gonna string you up….also…Johnson will be glad to see Van Damme’s dental work.

You fool! You broke my sex swing. Your mother is going to be furious!

Even in death…father has perfect sleeping posture?

Yay Ogre! NEEEEERDS!

Ogre has his own money.

I need some closure. These Tonakas keep dying with no fanfare.

I Lin…you Franks? You look like a Franks

Frank Dux

Hey…us american’s don’t fight outside the tourna…ok…we are a bunch of cowboys.

Hong Kong, China needs a few more signs.

Time to protect your nuts.

OK USA

Uh oh…looks like Frank got a boyfriend after they entered the Kumite alley. HANDS OFF OGRE!

This is the Kumite? this is it? I’m going home.

hey Lin. Can you see into the future with those glasses?

It’s says he represents the Lollipop Guild.

Death Touch…I don’t like the sound of that…oh…looks more like candy crush to me.

No pressure…go ahead…break the brick…we are just going to all stop and watch.

“I’m out.”

Time to use the crazy eyes….chop

haha…somebody blew the horn when he was trying to talk. Don’t think that was on purpose.

Ha! You lose American Asshole.

is this Canadian money!

Hey Van Damme…there are other levels of the waist line.

Unnecessarily Brutal.

Hey Dux…wanna go beat up some Nerds.

Love Ogre’s shoes…velcro high tops…socks…are those bandannas?

I don’t think you are smelling Adrenaline.

Those who can’t fight…color guard.

If posture is a test of your abilities then some of these guys are no slouches.

A lot of lingering shots on people’s faces in these movies.

That’s why they call it bloodsport? Cause blood? Glad that was explained.

I don’t think that is how gambling works. You don’t throw money on the loser.

American’s can take a punch. Then we go nuts.

I’m gonna kill you man….yeah I am pointing at you.

Chong Li is massive.

Van Damme sure has some pretty hair.

Good thing that was Hossein and not the ref. He would have punched him.

Free gold tooth for the Janitor. This better have a story resolution.

Song “I fight to survive!!”

Mmmm…Now I want some Chinese food.

Wait…was that a dog meat joke? cause he tried to feed the Chinese food to the dog.

I ain’t your pal dickface.

50 thousand volts

Role reversal. Usually the guy is the one who stays in bed and appreciate the body of the woman as she slips on her clothes. Not with Van Damme movies. Nope…the lady stays in bed and watches his cheese cake. I remember a time when ladies were all about going to see the Van Damme movies for his butt shots.

You feel strong today?

Puma!

I think that Ethiopian wants to kill you.

Come on…wait one more minute!

There are some vicious Asian Beards in this movie

How many F bombs?

The ole…fist bump switch up. Works every time.

I think this movie could use a little more inner dialogue.

Take the Paco Rib Foot Challenge.

I was never really sure when Chung Li had killed someone or not. But I guess he didn’t until that one guy when everybody turned around and…YOU ARE NEXT! Bah.

Ohhh…good thing father spent 5 years teaching me how to fight blind. Also, he could have saved me a lot of training if he just told me. In Kumite sometimes cheaters will blind you with tablets…so…watch out for that.

wait…remember your training!

Love this stupid music.

According to the camera…he is not totally blind…so why does he act full on blind.

Who keeps blowing the air horn…sounds like a cat. meow.

haha…he is blind…but he is winning…this is great…we should all laugh and clap

We salute you!

beer in the hospital bed…good idea

Anytime…anyplace,,,anywhere….isn’t that the same thing.

[usr 5.0]

*WARNING : My show notes are unrated. I do not censor my thoughts while making notes.

Listen Now

Hard Rain (1998)

– FilmSack Edition

Hard Rain (film)

 

Opener:  My Opener

 I don’t do crossword puzzles Mr. Jim…. 26 Across? ok…but like I said I don’t really…. ok…ok… 26…..across…. a seven letter word for Avacado… you wrote down… “I hate you so much Kenny….” I don’t think you are suppose to go outside of the boxes Mr. Jim. …. yes sir Mr. Jim…… But maybe you can try the word jumble next time if boxes aren’t really your thing… oh hey can you explain flooding to me like I am a 5 year old. What? not in this movie? OK. Cause you are Morgan Freeman…and that’s kinda your thing.

Rain, Huntsburg, Shitberg, Randy Quaid on the bullhorn, Henry, Henry, I know the Illuminati are in there, Betty White trap, jet ski,

Twitter:   Hard Rain (1998) Like running into a Betty White trap. You just know it is going to involve something nut wrenching.

Alt: Like taking a long hot bath with Betty White. You come out all wrinkly and sexually confused. Mustache rapist!

Hard Rain (1998)

 

Stuff I Loved:

Straight to the music!

Is there a water motif? Shutup

They are using those big orchestra drums. Something batman is about to happen.

Which Quaid am I watching? Crazy Quaid or Handsome Quaid?

Better call in the Corp of Engineers…gonna be some road flooding.

What the hell am I looking at here? Is that some kind of computer generated fly -in.

Crazy Quaid.

Trope: Cop on his last days.

Put a dead cow in his living room? Bastard!

Misdirection! thought this was a robbery. Nope…just the cash pickup.

Leave Lou alone about his hairy ear.

I wonder when Freeman will explain it to us?

Awwww…Damn.

Que the deer.

Road…where we are going…we don’t need any roads…no..wait…we need the roads! Bring back the roads!

Morgan Freeman…worst cross word puzzle solver ever…not even staying in the boxes!

got a bit of the old western music motif going on in here.

Trope: Old man and old lady stubborn…never leave during a natural disaster

Leave it to Christian Slater to get Lou shot.

Damnit Kenny. You killed somebody Kenny!

He took the moonies and ran!

This is a weird gang. Morgan Freeman, Kenny “The Lump”, The School Teacher and the other guy.

Ahh…I get it…it’s…slippery.

Huh…Jim…can we Jim…huh huh…hey Jim Jim!

Why didn’t we think of Jet Skis! Oh yeah…cause the water is only knee high to a grasshopper and you are likely going to hit something.

Man…these guys make floods look like fun.

Jim! Jim! look at me Jim! Hey Kenny…how about stop yelling my name.

Really…that was your whole plan…ram him with your Jet Ski…moron.

Trope: Bullfighting technique works for all situations. Even when dodging Jet Ski. Wait for it…wait for it. Jump! ha ha..he crashed.

This music has not stopped.

Is this from the creators of Speed or something….yep.

Damnit Kenny

Trope: Cops lock up our hero…Now how is he suppose to do anything!

what! who knew flooding could be dangerous…I mean…it’s just a little high water right?

Well…Miss high and mighty “it’s my boat…” you might have killed one of the officers with your shit.

Uh oh…he’s in the prison during a flooding! and…what is this! who locks up a prisoner and just leaves the jail house unattended?And you wondered why you didn’t get re-elected.

When the Levee breaks..  que the Led Zepplin

Why does everybody seem to be having fun on the Jet Skis. They are hooping and hollering!

Trope: Do men lie about getting beat up by women in real life? Or when a woman or kid gets the best of them? “It was a bear that attacked me!”

My tape collection! It’s all water damaged!

The Trope: Kenny…the guy everybody wants to die. Everybody tries to save him from his stupidity. But…nope.

Oh my god…they killed Kenny!

So far….Christian Slater is a bonehead. If he gave them the money they would have let him go. They didn’t kill anybody intentionally

Telling Betty White to Shut the F up.

I’m all out of bible quotes

Eye shot to the teacher

Dirty Quaid!

Who is the most disgruntled?

Hey…I think that was what my last pack of chicken was labeled as…shit free.

Christian take the wheel!

Roundtable question…. If you are dying cause someone has initiated the dying process by stabbing you or something. Do you try to kill them back with your dying breath? Or do you have a change of heart?

A disaster movie where Morgan Freeman does not try to explain floods? I’m kinda disappointed

Chaotic evil. That is Hank

Spoiler…no one drowns in our flood movie. Shot…sure…electrocuted…why not…blow up…uh huh. Drowned? Nope..

“What you reckon killed him?” “I’d say these bullet holes”

Damn state police.

Hurry Wang, Hurry, we must get to the train before all the good softballs are taken…also did you remember to bring the mahjong and other things that aren’t appropriate to play on a train? oooh…jacks…are you as drunk as I am right now?

Drunk, Master, Kung Fu, Chinese, Jackie Chan, Bamboo Tubes, Floppy Sword, Sweat, Fists, Step-Mom, abusive father, balance, dirt, dust, trains, chicken, ducks, food, huh, dubbed, loose clothing, fire, alcoholism, AA, 12 step program, lying, Lucille Ball, Evil British, stolen artifacts, factory downtown, Chinese checkers, clueless father, softball on a train

The Legend of Drunken Master (1994)

 

Stuff I Loved:

You must declare all items.

50 bucks in duty

Hide it in my pants

What’s in the yellow sheet?

Someone push him…and it was me!

Chinese love train rides!

The Legend Of Drunken Master…that’s what I call Randy at Nerdtacular.

Chinese checkers

Hey…look at the white crane.

Fast ball pitch on a train full of people is probably not a good idea

What a luxury train! Chinese Buffet through the windows.

That dude is picking his feet.

Ahhh…first class is always better.

hehe…the chickens has gone wild. That sure was a lot of mahem and destruction for a box of something.

Mesmerized by the under the train fight sceen

What a floppy sword.

Apologize old man.

Drunken Boxing…looks like you may have a problem

Crane!

Turtle crotch.

Your Kung Fu is strong.

Ginseng?

Box swapper

Central Intelligence.

Free Money! Mr. and Mrs. Wong.

Mr. Chang wants his Ginseng.

strychnine…take it

Ginseng apparently is to heighten the libido.

and no one knows what it looks like.

Chinese production lines are weird

Boss man is bad.

Now that is an interesting management style

Ahhh…the Europeans are such uppity dicks…is that still a thing?

How about I bone it for you

I love pop and lock fighting

How much is ginseng! Trade a diamond necklace

So poor you share a single pair of pants!

Grab the seal…ark ark ark

The stop him dance

The Chinese have a real personal space issue

Did they break her jaw?

haha…liquor is like spinach for Drunken boxing. awesome

Monkey drinks masters wine

Down the hatch is a favorite

That’s a caning

my 300 year old bonzai

such a drama queen…love the step mom

abusive father…wine boarding

No Noooo…I guess Druken Boxing only works for a minute

Don’t kill him…teach him a lesson…like public nudity.

Boats can float on water…but they can sink too.

Talk about your table flipping scene…crash through it…then beat the poo out of everybody

music is very….eastern

How did they get so many ax murderers in their Chinese army?

further proof…guns solve problems in movies

Would hate to get beat by a bamboo bundle

Take your shirt off….get oily

Trope….have we seen the Uniform Trojan before?

Whatis the weird ass 100 people sitting quietly in the dark so they can surprise the intruders by turning on the lights and laughing at them.

Here…take your floppy sword

Favorite drunken master move? Washing Machine Spin Cycle. Thousand Lip Kiss.

What condition? I’m only pregnant.

Huh! Is probably the most commonly used expression in Chinese movies.

Dirt and powder makes all kung fu look cooler.

What’s not a good idea…keeping bamboo flasks of alcohol on the wall next to fire pits.

So are they making rebar in that weird ass factory?

The vertical split always makes me question how you are spending your free time.

How many times do I have to watch Jackie Chan puke in this movie.

Drunken rage.

Alcoholism ain’t funny Jackie Chan!

a 35 second cut was made to the concluding scene of the film which showed Wong blinded and mentally crippled as a result of drinking industrial alcohol during the film’s ultimate fight. Played for laughs, the scene was considered to be in bad taste by the American distributor

[usr 5.0]

*WARNING : My show notes are unrated. I do not censor my thoughts while making notes.

Listen Now

The Beast with a Million 10 Eyes (1955)

– FilmSack Edition

The Beast with a Million Eyes

 

Opener: 

Dearest family in the big house. I have been watching you through my tiny window. You  thinks I’m dumb because I can’t talk. While technically that is the definition of dumb…I think you are confusing dumb with stupid. But who is the stupids now. You think my coffee maker in my desert hole is a space ship. I just took it out there because the humming was making the dog bark like a human. But still you persist, I was hoping that throwing all the dead birds at your car would stop you from messing with it…but nooo…now you got the sheriff involved. I’m going to chop you up with my axe real soon. Hugs and Kisses. Carl. MY NAME IS CARL!

Twitter:   The Beast with a Million Eyes (1955) – Where are my other 999, 999, 997 eyes

Alt:  You say a lot of things you don’t mean… but you still say them don’cha

Alt: The damage is inside…and I’m not talking about the broken glasses…I’m talking about my wife. 

The Beast with a Million Eyes (1955)

Stuff I Loved:

Opening narration tells me we ain’t going to see no beast with actual million eyes.

A million miles away…how can I trust that after you just told me about the eye thing.

The unthinkers…then the goobers.

You see my most secret acts? What does that mean!!

Also, birds are stupid. What about fish? Is that how aquaman controls fish? Is he an alien?

I dig these opening credit artwork.

10 years has not been good to the Marlboro Man.

Date ranch off season…my life is full of Date ranch off season.

Man..your wife really hates you.

Hatch a brood of horror…this is some pretty good monologue.

Dorothy and her dog Hitler.

Mom is really bitter…like an unripened date.

Don’t bang the stove when you are baking. Mom Baking 101…did your mom used to  yell at you when you ran through the house when she was baking?

Sandy…how long?

4:3 aspect ratio…why do you hate me Netflix.

You say a lot of things you don’t mean… but you still say them don’cha

A lot of allusions to the date ranch being rife with alien-ness

You, me and “him.” Always watching! hehe…made me laugh…dude with a gape hanging opening mouth

I never saw a single date plucked…no wonder you are failing

Let’s get a close up of that window

Yeah…I ain’t a pervert…would a pervert read a magazine like this? and then hang ladies on Him’s wall…oh…in that case…yes…pervert

Such a teenager…”do you really care?”

Duke…the dog with no bark..so some dude is making barking noises. poorly.

What kind of road is that between the trees? Wisteria? In the desert? Where the hell are we?

Just going to climb this conveniently placed ladder near the swimming hole.

Man…this music sounds like public domain took a shit on this movie.

What is that noise! Nice face! Grab your breasts and yell for Alan!

“Crazy pilots…always showing off.”

is that a German shepherd…Did you win that in the war?

Poor dummy. Him just wanted to see some tits.

Is the sheriff laughing at the wife? Cause this isn’t funny sheriff.

All my good glassware. I wish I had good glassware.

I think I will contemplate something evil with this broken glassware.

Peeping on teenage girls is hungry work. I need food…look…I’m making the fork shoveling motion…fix me some soup woman!

Stupid bird. Watch where you are goi…OH SHIT!! Somebody is throwing dead birds at me!

That had to be the weakest dead bird toss at a car I have ever seen.

Check out my woody! I mean my car with the wood paneling! BAITING!

Time doesn’t matter to sherry…cause she is a time traveling milk cow.  She can tell me when the milk is going to expire.

Things have been miiiiighty Fuunnnny around here.

consarnit?

yeah…yeah…drop in.

That noise is annoying.

Oh don’t be so dramatic. Plane didn’t almost hit the house.

All that she had left from home….It’s been 10 years…get over it Drama queen.

Bark at it Hitler!

Is that an industrial sized paint mixer? nope…coffee maker.

The damage is inside…and I’m not talking about the broken glasses…I’m talking about my wife.

Where did “Him” get a plate full of vittles?

Dick Sargent…the first Darren? Nope…second

yeah…I’m not an ax wielding murderer

Lock the door and lay on my bed with this magazine…I totally ain’t going to masturbate.

This was film making during the 50s…do you reckon that dog has parvo for reals?

Way to go lady…you can’t bake…you can’t parent…you can’t shoot.  man you can’t shoot.

Bating! Bating! can’t let you in lady. Bating.

That is one hilly road.

Dook in the woodshed? I do not want to look at the poop you produced outside.

The looney did it!

Humming noise? Did it sound like the plane that freaked us all out earlier…yeah…didn’t think about that…well…I see who will be the next one to go down.

“When you gals decide to break it up…I’m hungry…. ” That pretty much sums up the man/woman relationship during the 50s

Oh comic relief. You couldn’t have shown up at a better time.

THE TERROR! no  no sharon..no no…

How’s it going…I have a butane torch…I’m doing something that was common to this door during the 50s that required no explanation back then…but makes us scratch our heads now.

Roasted chicken!

Who gave the simple man a pinwheel to put on his door?

You get a wiggle on ya. Pretty sure that would get you slapped today.

Hey “Him” where you going with them high pants? you got a job to do?

The ground cam must have gotten busted at some point…it always had crap on it.

Your father never talks about the war.

Mad cow! Be sure to always look back at least once when an animal is chasing you.

Stopped that cow in it’s tracks.

9476….that is not enough numbers!

Dick Sargent has his old west map in front of his phone.

crazy lady…

One big bird…it’s was a muppet I think. Big Bird Crow.

This movie is very anti-bird.

Time to explain! Putting it all together…it has to be aliens!

Sandy’s voice reminds me of Sherman of Mr. Peabody and Sherman.

Master brain!

4 flat tires…that’s bad luck.

That’s the word..Cake…makes the ladies cry

CAKE! MOTHER! HOW COULD YOU!

Run off in a huff

Suck this flashlight Darren.

Rock to the collar bone! mother.

use that gun as intended Sargent…to know him out.

Stand at attention Dick Sargent.

Music swell. You win! Flip that sexy hair you skinny man Sargent.

Love how uncomfortable the daughter is around Him. Makes me laugh when I shouldn’t

Your looney has gone mad.

What…is he a tracker now…only 1 set of tracks.

You hear what I hear? Cah- Cahh…Cah Cahh.

That dang alien has a mirror and ain’t afraid of using.

Carl…Him has a name!

Like Carl from SlingBlade?

This music is really ramping up the tension.

No Larry…it’s too late…cause I’m psychic. or maybe I road the milk cow into the future.

The mom seems to have a lot of off screen bird rants. Never see her with the birds except for the chicken coop.

together we can defeat it…that sounds like some propaganda!

Uh oh…I feel a symbolism search coming on…must resist! The birds are commies! the alien is Carl Marx! Freedom if you sacrifice your children! mind control! But not if we stick together!

no wait…

We feed on brains! Zombies! Minds without bodies? aren’t those just ideas. The danger of ideas.

Hate and Madness are the key to power.

Every move you made was observed.

He was sick. What! You knew him Alan! War stories!

maybe this is more about post traumatic syndrome!

We are stronger because of love…so sci-fi…stupid aliens…so advanced…but they can’t understand the basic human condition.

The alien is not amused or convinced. You are lying earth man!

Nope…you can’t have her.

Mom is creeping me out rubbing her daughters leg.

Super brains!

The alien lost his soul!

This is getting pretty smart…you can’t destroy the nuclear family…AS LONG AS WE GOT EACH OTHER!

We got the world spinnin’ right in our hands
Baby, you and me
We gotta be
The luckiest dreamers who never quit dream…

Eeek! Eye ball…that is like maybe 3 eyes tops.

Where are my other 999, 999, 997 eyes

That is a pretty cool shot of him coming out of the crater with the blurred image.

That is why the ship was so small…they had to use the few inhabitants of their planet that was left. A muskbat…or spiderthing….or thing with 2 eyes.

An eagle! A symbol of freedom! I’m onto something with my theory on communism

Stop looking at the camera Carol…

I would be more than human…I would be….what?! A god? An alien! A commie…don’t look into the camera and say stuff and then turn your back on me woman! Now go bake me a cake…scratch that…you can’t bake for shit.

The wife was straddling Cabin Fever…Space Madness…Monthly Friend territory!

A look at the red scare in hollywood perhaps? Blacklist kind of stuff…eyes are watching you…the unthinkers who can be controlled.

THE TERROR! no  no sharon..no no…

How’s it going…I have a butane torch…I’m doing something that was common to this door during the 50s that required no explanation back then…but makes us scratch our heads now.

Roasted chicken!

Who gave the simple man a pinwheel to put on his door?

You get a wiggle on ya. Pretty sure that would get you slapped today.

Hey “Him” where you going with them high pants? you got a job to do?

The ground cam must have gotten busted at some point…it always had crap on it.

Your father never talks about the war.

Mad cow! Be sure to always look back at least once when an animal is chasing you.

Stopped that cow in it’s tracks.

9476….that is not enough numbers!

Dick Sargent has his old west map in front of his phone.

crazy lady…

One big bird…it’s was a muppet I think. Big Bird Crow.

This movie is very anti-bird.

Time to explain! Putting it all together…it has to be aliens!

Sandy’s voice reminds me of Sherman of Mr. Peabody and Sherman.

Master brain!

4 flat tires…that’s bad luck.

That’s the word..Cake…makes the ladies cry

CAKE! MOTHER! HOW COULD YOU!

Run off in a huff

Suck this flashlight Darren.

Rock to the collar bone! mother.

use that gun as intended Sargent…to know him out.

Stand at attention Dick Sargent.

Music swell. You win! Flip that sexy hair you skinny man Sargent.

Love how uncomfortable the daughter is around Him. Makes me laugh when I shouldn’t

Your looney has gone mad.

What…is he a tracker now…only 1 set of tracks.

You hear what I hear? Cah- Cahh…Cah Cahh.

That dang alien has a mirror and ain’t afraid of using.

Carl…Him has a name!

Like Carl from SlingBlade?

This music is really ramping up the tension.

No Larry…it’s too late…cause I’m psychic. or maybe I road the milk cow into the future.

The mom seems to have a lot of off screen bird rants. Never see her with the birds except for the chicken coop.

together we can defeat it…that sounds like some propaganda!

Uh oh…I feel a symbolism search coming on…must resist! The birds are commies! the alien is Carl Marx! Freedom if you sacrifice your children! mind control! But not if we stick together!

no wait…

We feed on brains! Zombies! Minds without bodies? aren’t those just ideas. The danger of ideas.

Hate and Madness are the key to power.

Every move you made was observed.

He was sick. What! You knew him Alan! War stories!

maybe this is more about post traumatic syndrome!

We are stronger because of love…so sci-fi…stupid aliens…so advanced…but they can’t understand the basic human condition.

The alien is not amused or convinced. You are lying earth man!

Nope…you can’t have her.

Mom is creeping me out rubbing her daughters leg.

Super brains!

The alien lost his soul!

This is getting pretty smart…you can’t destroy the nuclear family…AS LONG AS WE GOT EACH OTHER!

We got the world spinnin’ right in our hands
Baby, you and me
We gotta be
The luckiest dreamers who never quit dream…

Eeek! Eye ball…that is like maybe 3 eyes tops.

Where are my other 999, 999, 997 eyes

That is a pretty cool shot of him coming out of the crater with the blurred image.

That is why the ship was so small…they had to use the few inhabitants of their planet that was left. A muskbat…or spiderthing….or thing with 2 eyes.

An eagle! A symbol of freedom! I’m onto something with my theory on communism

Stop looking at the camera Carol…

I would be more than human…I would be….what?! A god? An alien! A commie…don’t look into the camera and say stuff and then turn your back on me woman! Now go bake me a cake…scratch that…you can’t bake for shit.

The wife was straddling Cabin Fever…Space Madness…Monthly Friend territory!

A look at the red scare in hollywood perhaps? Blacklist kind of stuff…eyes are watching you…the unthinkers who can be controlled.

Minority Report – FilmSack Edition

 

Minority Report (film) – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

Opener: (silence) “I’m not talking to you…” 

Have you ever hated something for so long you forgot why you even hated it to begin with? Yeah I never forgot. Screw you guys.

Hello, this is the Precrime division, How may we help you? (silence) Sir, that is not how it works. (silence)  Why don’t you just tell me what you want? (silence) No, our precogs are not running…oh…cause if they were…we would have to catch them…clever.   Sir, We are dispatching a cop on horseback to your location now…should be there in about a week.

Twitter:  Minority Report – Like having a dead cat sewn up in your chest. It may be exciting for about 2 hours but you just know It’s not going to end well. Negative Negative

Alt:  Like a Merry-Go-Round in 2054…WHY ARE THERE STILL MERRY-GO-ROUNDS IN THE FUTURE! Negative…Negative…Negative

 

Minority Report (2002)

 

Stuff I Loved:

Oh sure…Love it when a movie starts with 20th Century…get’s me into the mood for Filmsack.

How blind I am without them.

Harold don’t cry.

Run!!

Murder

Balls with victims and murder’s names on them.

Down the Rube Goldberg tubes

Year 2054

Red Ball. 8:04 am Agatha…confirmed

recorded on Holosphere.

1108…Tom is 1109 in room 1109.

Let’s turn on the classical music as we watch the murders.

Paper in the sprinkler…really…better call Saul?

These hand gestures…they do this to the mind video.

  1. Chop Chop Chop…zoooom.
  2. Reach deep in the bag….there…I have it now.

Danny…gum chewer.

Oh goody…they are explaining the technology and the slang for the stuff they do on the technology.

Red Ball are the only kind of murders left…crimes of passion.

Merry go round…it’s a park…16 Merry go rounds in the city…there are none right now! Those things are worse than murder.

Do we have elevators …nope…we got personal transport thingys.

Love the police copter

Noire/lens flare/oversaturation

Cops on the playground..innocence lost

Negative…Negative…Negative..it’s all cops ever say.

Tom Cruise likes to run. Run Cruise run.

Don’t cry. Does he cry a lot? did he have eye surgery? Howard Marks.

Don’t put that Halo on me!!

Precog Deja vu if you will.

Is this a Total Recall follow up?

In the future…TV is everywhere.

“What’s a matter…can’t sleep?”

True True True that.

A drug called Clarity.

Blind man can see. He got no balls! flying under the radar of the government.

John loves his classical music. Voice commands for the house.

Are those turds on his night stand?

In the future…videos will be stored on glass disks

John likes the taste of sugary cereal…but does not like the funny animals and music.

Gotta keep running. This whole movie is full of running.

This video is weird and disconnected…. END OF FILE…man..those disks/plates only store about a minute of video…

What horrible video technology we have in the future. Are computers not smart enough to do a 3D representation.

Hot Wheels! Leading the way!

A vote is pending on the wide spread roll out of Pre-Crime.

The shape and grain is impossible to forge…cause…we can’t forge wood.

Save the trees! no more precog wood waste!

say PreCog one more time motherfucker…say it one more time.

He sure loves that gum. also, Noire lighting is the suck.

Did somebody forge this warrant? I mean it wasn’t printed on a ball of wood and rolled down some winding tube…how do I know it is real.

He’s not a scientist…he is a Dolphin Tank care dude.

Arthur and Daschal….Chicks in the pool.

I’m glad you are explaining the technology again.

Water is important in this movie. Precogs in the pool….John lost his boy in the pool…His wife lives on the lake house…the unsolved murder was a drowning…John hides in the tub…

I sure wish someone would explain how stuff works again.

Scooby Doo had better mysteries.

Wally….one of your precogs is malfunctioning.

Precog on me!! get it off…get it off!

Bald ladies and scifi.

More explaining

Pretty thorough….they have a eye scanner high and one low…cause the low one covers the containment guard who is in a wheelchair.

Gideon has a pipe organ in containment…what the hell.

Know what is efficient? keeping people in susepended animation tubes that go up and down…you know…cause if one of them get’s sick..it’ll be easy peasy getting to them…nope

More splaining.

He is totally 50s crime drama cop in containment.

Careful chief…if you did up the past…all you get is dirty…

More spaining.

Why does everybody hold up the glass plates…

Why are we wasting time talking about how the old man doesn’t like tea or honey? was there a point? are we setting up the relationship with his wife/servant? nope.

Eyes…The eyes…lots of eyes and awake references.

Man…John’s apartment is really smokey. It’s a health hazard.

Leo Crow

Brown Ball.

What point of view are the precogs seeing? Do they watch like they are floating in the scene? Are they seeing things from the eyes of the victims and killer?

Cake is a great excuse.

Wouldn’t it be common to see the cops in precog visions…or do they not broadcast alternate timelines?

Those precogs are pretty vague on a lot of things…but not time…that is down to the second.

Hot wheels…leading the way!!

Hold on…I am having my assistant open my Nokia communication glass panel  desktop device.

Explaining…explain…explaining!

Not a lot of wind outside…when tom is jumping those cars….I mean…duh

The Yoga scene is pretty cool.

More unnecessary dialogue.

More product placement than last week

“Eye”dentification …that was sort of on the nose.

People love their newspapers…even in the future…not a single person listening to podcasts.

Worse jetpack chase scene…no wait…it’s awesome!

In the future…there are no Osha regulations at the auto plant.

Kissing that pendant again.

Very Indiana Jones music and fight scenes.

Must meet the old lady on the woods who has sworn off technology and the city…she is jaded…also…my favorite character of the movie and the only character to move the forward story while explaining technology.

They said the name of the movie like 5 times!

Please don’t sew a cat up inside me.

Trope – Crazy Black Market Foreign Doctor.

Those spiders are cool…and creepy.

A plan that involves keeping your old eyes in the hopes they didn’t lock you out of the system. Worked!

Wait…did he just flush himself? Why would you even have a high pressure evacuation tube in a precog tank?

RUN

Why don’t you explain to us why things are happening? perfect. thanks.

Beautiful shots

Look ma…I can fly…fantasies.

I hate when I forget to record the precogs.

This whole movie is a mirror memory or alternate view point…or alternate timeline…cause everyone who gets shot in the chest is shot on the wrong side of the heart. get it…here is a hammer…shall I beat you over the head with it.

Negative…Negative.

Precogs are grumpy when you take them out of their tank.
