– FilmSack Edition
Opener: Hey, did you guys hear! There is a big sale down at the Chinatown Sunglasses Hut! 20% off for all Triads. We all got some…you will be totally lame if you don’t go get some and oh…a black suit…and pomade.
Sorvino, Loco, Riff Raff, Mr. Magoo, Trejo, Sunglasses Hut,
Twitter: The Replacement Killers (1998) Like a free Pepsi you just kicked out of a soda machine. It’s Free PEPSI! Don’t expect a story. Now y’all tripping.
Stuff I Loved:
It’s Rave music!
This is very oriental.
Here is your bullet. Now I shoot you…and all of your friends.
Did you really just throw your empty gun away.
4 Asians in a speedboat. Black suits. Black Hair.
Flood lights or work lights always makes that sound in movies
Apparently there is cocaine involved.
Big drug deals always go down at the loading docks
That is what I want….Stone Cold Face Pictures Of Me At My Funeral. Staring everybody down.
All these Asians are fancy. and slick.
Is she in the Asian KKK?
ahhh…the Chinese…they sure love their fireworks.
Chow Yung Fat is in sorta white suit.
Mr. Wei? is he aware his name sounds like urine?
Must have been a big sale down at the sunglasses hut in China town.
So…the bullet marks you? but you don’t use the bullet? Do you leave it as your calling card?
Somebody is paying a debt off.
Choot Him! Chooot Him!
1st rule of sniper club…don’t watch till you start having feelings for your target.
Crying is bad for your aim. Don’t do it.
Phew…that was close…
Do you prefer Buddha with Nipples or no nipples
That face on that Buddhist when he was told he went against Mr. Wei.
That dude has Pepsi foo.
Look that old Motorola Flip Phone.
Look at those old CRTs.
Is taping a gun under your desk a good idea?
She looks totally casual sitting at that desk grabbing under it at the gun.
Computers can fix anything.
She takes digital photos and has a darkroom. She is a lady of many talents.
I got your back if you got mine.
You just lean against me and I’ll lean right back so we don’t have to sleep with our heads in the mud.
Shotgun always wins.
She has a lot of negatives….all of the same image.
That looks like real monies.
Who uses an abacus when counting money.
Asia…mix of class and technology
Sexy Sorvino Scene
You paid $3000 dollars for that computer…also, they just shot the monitor. Get over it.
I hate this hacker shit.
What is up with the top of the scene being polarized in the city scene…I guess to block out the beautiful sky.
Eddie is dead. I think the Pepsi Mafia finally got to him.
Chow Yung Fat has been mowing down 6 and 7 people at a time before they even pull a gun. Why did he just give up when they were at Eddie’s place.
Who tosses handcuffs…what a horrible replacement killer.
Fooled ya…I got another gun.
I can see the pitch meeting now…”We’ll have a shootout at the carwash…so we can have those giant rag things bouncing around. Great for cover. Also, we just happen to have one of those mechanic scoot around thingys….in case we need to wash your undercarriage…oh behave!
Man…look at that bad ass thunderbird. Old school.
Michael Rooker is staring you down…can’t shoot him! He’s too handsome!
You can chase a car for about 5 feet…then the speed of a car is going to outpace you…by a lot.
Trejo! No way!
Time to use my special Asian powers to heal your wounds. Crack.
Do it….Do it! DOoooooo It!
So much sexual chemistry. I bet they do it.
The honor hero. No matter what he does…it is for honor…he must stick to the rules of honor. Cause…you know…the Chinese are like that…in movies.
I need a passport…can you use mine…no I can’t use yours moron!
They make passports at the Post Office. How hard can it be to march in there with a gun and get one made.
OMG…it’s Riff Raff….like so many years ago.
Family is most important. Honor Hero.
Oooooh…he wasn’t suppose to kill Rooker…he was suppose to kill the boy. Boooo…bad guys. Son for a son. Makes sense.
That is the most gang related arcade I have ever seen.
Know what doesn’t aim well….a briefcase gun.
Holy cow…Trejo just killed those pinball machines.
Man…those arcade goers got the hell out really fast…and turned off the lights….but not the power…games are still on.
They don’t care…they kill a cop…cop killers. pew pew pew
Yeah…Stevie..that is great…but I know what a shake sounds like.
You know…Stevie is kind of annoying…I’m ok with them offing this kid.
Dem is some big doors
Buddha Buddha Buddha…Buddha ev’where..
You can’t shoot a monk!
The monk is dying…like he has time to give you timelines and predictions of when Wei will find your family.
Dude…his eyes are already shut. Alan does not need you to close his eyes again.
Buddha says…everything gonna be alright…and also, magnifico!…these noodles are great.
Do you really need a passport expert to remove a photo off a current passport and put it back on.
That Rooker and son scene is really haunting John Lee.
Everybody got a gun!
No…y’all don’t be tripping.
Bounce…Bounce…my car bounces.
Now y’all tripping.
He sure is in a hurry.
This has Jon Woo stank all over it.
Cartoon Festival! Mr. Magoooooo What relationship…Magoo is watching a movie of them watching a movie and is confused by the war movie and real life. So Meta Magoo.
Trejo couldn’t hit a 7 year old with a laser sight.
Big talk…you can’t lock down the GD city
Literally…rubbing dirt on it.
Hi, I got guns in my pants…that means I will be doing some shooting.
For someone who never misses. He sure ain’t no good at shooting people in cars
the back alley guy who came out of one of the side doors is one of those Asian Actor favorites.
What can brown do for you. It can carry a screaming Sorvino right down an alley.
If you have rocket launchers…shouldn’t you start with rocket launcher.
Ohhh…we haven’t seen a good Kitchen chase through in a long time.
They used the fire escapes a lot in this movie. Would hate to be involved in a fire fight on a fire escape.
I think this movie is about guns. There is hardly a scene that doesn’t involve guns.
Is she wearing a razor blade necklace.
Trejo get’s one line. “Checkmate’ Now put my head on a turtle.
Bullet clips sure empty at convenient times.
Maybe one of the best falling scenes I have scene.
Cue the rain and atmospheric music please.
The unspoken understanding between two honor heroes.
This movie was short. Could have been shorter if they had fewer staring contests.
