I Am About To Watch One Of These Two JAMES BOND Flicks. Which Would YOU Watch First???

TB_-_UK_cinema_poster (via Wikipedia)Moonraker (1979)

(Not So) Random (Blu-ray) Movie Mention: “DREDD” (2012)

DREDD (2012)

The Tagline Says…

JUDGMENT IS COMING

…And That’s Exactly What’s Happening.

Right Here.

Right Now.

Ready?

GREAT!

๐Ÿ˜‰ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

Let Me Truly Begin By Saying That This Flick…

DREDD

…Is My Favorite Blu-ray Of 2013, Thus Far.

I Can Say That Without Reservation, OR Hesitation.

It Is Simply Wonderful.

To Be Blunt…

…I LOVED IT!!!

As Far As The Film Goes, “DREDD” Is Totally And Easily 142,000-Times BETTER Than The Original Take On The Film, The Campy Cheese-Fest “JUDGE DREDD“, Starring SYLVESTER STALLONE.

In The 2012 Version…

KARL URBAN Is “DREDD

…And He’s So So SO Much Better As The Title Character Than Ole SLY Was.

Don’t Get Me Wrong, My Peeps, I AM A Fan Of Ole SLY STALLONE.

I Always Have Been.

I Just Enjoyed KARL URBAN‘s Take On The Character So So SO Much More.

DREDD” Is WILD.

It’s FUN.

It’s BRUTAL.

It’s BLOODY.

It’s LOADED With Wonderfully Awesome Special F/X, Trashy And Dangerous Characters, The Works!!!

It Has A Simple, But Effective, Plot.

And, Of Course, A Stone-Cold Performance By KARL URBAN.

๐Ÿ˜€

Honestly, I’m Actually Kinda Sad I Didn’t Make The Time To See This One Up On The Big Screen.

๐Ÿ˜ฆ

After Seeing It On The Blu-ray, I Can Totally Tell Y’all I Would Have Happily Shelled Out My $10 To Catch It At The Theater.

This Blu-ray Is Rather Stunning.

The Sound Quality May Be The Best I’ve Yet Heard.

The Picture Quality Was Spot-On.

The Flick Simply LOOKED And SOUNDED Wonderfully Wonderful!!!

Co-Starring…

OLIVIA THIRLBY As The Rookie Judge “ANDERSON”

…And…

LENA HEADEY As The Ruthless Drug Kingpin “MA-MA”

…This Version Of The Classic “JUDGE DREDD” Comics Is Vastly Superior To The Original Film Adaptation, And I Had An Absolute Blast Checking-It-Out!!!

I Recommend This One To Anyone Who Enjoys Some Quality Escapist Fun!!!

JUDGMENT IS COMING

???

You Betcha, My Peeps!!!

It’s Coming, And It’s AWESOME!!!

๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

(NOT SO) Random (JAMES BOND BLU-RAY) Movie Mention: “A VIEW TO A KILL” (1985)

A View To A Kill (1985)

Yeah, That’s What’s On.

I Just Happen To Have This Classic JAMES BOND Caper On Ye Ole BLU-RAY, Now!

Exciting, Eh?!

๐Ÿ˜€

For The Longest Time, I Insisted To My Friends ((and anyone else whom might/might-not care)) That This BOND Adventure…

A VIEW TO A KILL

…Was MY ULTIMATE-FAVORITE BOND Flick.

Period.

And, For The Bulk Of My Youth, It Honestly Was.

While It May Not Be MY FAVORITE Any Longer, It Remains A True Joy For Me To Kick-Back And Watch.

A VIEW TO A KILL” And “OCTOPUSSY” Actually Started My Personal Love Affair AND Adventure With Ole –007– And His Amazingly Wonderful World.

I Sincerely Haven’t Looked Back, Since.

I’ve Been Hooked From The Onset.

I Do So So SO Love This Movie, And Think It To Be Very Very VERY Underrated.

Yeah, I’ll Grant That ROGER MOORE Was A Little “Long-In-The-Tooth” At Times During This One.

It Can’t Be Denied, So I Won’t Even Try To Do So.

But, Did It Honestly Bother Me???

Nope.

NOT. AT. ALL.

I’m A Huge ROGER MOORE Fanboy.

He Shall Always AND Forever Be MY FAVORITE BOND, And It’s Pure Bliss For Me To Watch Him Go On A Mission As The World’s Most Famous Spy.

๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

A VIEW TO A KILL” Co-Stars CHRISTOPHER WALKEN As Our Baddie, The F-in’ Brilliantly Insane “MAX ZORIN“, Whom Is Hell-Bent On Destroying Silicon Valley, California, With A Man-Made MEGA-DISASTER!

He Wants To Corner The World’s Microchip Market, You See.

Honestly, He’s The Icing On The Sweet Sweet Cake That Is A ROGER MOORE Bond-Fest.

And, If CHRISTOPHER WALKEN Is The Icing, Then GRACE JONES As The Evil Henchwoman “MAY-DAY” Is The Strawberry On-Top!

(((I hate raw cherries, so those don't come anywhere near my sweet sweet cakes with icing!)))

Just Sayin’.

๐Ÿ˜‰

This Flick Is Truly PRICELESS.

It’s Over-The-Top At Times, But It’s Totally Worth It, My Peeps.

The Chase Scene Going From The Eiffel Tower, And Ending With A Crashed Wedding On A Barge, Is Simply Wonderful FUN.

And, That’s Exactly What The Whole Flick Is…

FUN!!!

Sometimes, That’s Really All I’m Lookin’ For.

I’m Very Happy To Have Now Added This BOND Caper To My Blu-ray Collection, And Now I’m Going To Get Back To Watching It.

I’ve Likely Seen It 412’ish Times…

…BUT It Has Yet To Get Old.

OH, And Don’t Forget About The Film’s Theme Song!

It’s Performed By Another Person Favorite…

DURAN DURAN

!!! !!! !!!

VTAK_-_UK_cinema_poster (via Wikipedia)

It’s STILL My Absolute Favorite BOND Theme Song.

Period Period Period.

Y’all Should Give This BOND Flick Another Chance, My Peeps.

It Is Deserving Of At Least That Much.

Who Knows, Maybe You’ll Encounter A New Found Appreciation For It.

I Know I Did, And I Already Really Enjoyed It.

You Just Can’t Beat JAMES BOND On The BLU-RAY!!!

๐Ÿ˜€

Happy Movie Watching, Kiddies!!!

๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

Who Else Got “LICENCE TO KILL” On The Blu-ray, On Good Ole Xmas Eve?! HA!! I WIN!!!

My Copy Of "Licence To Kill" (1989)

Timothy Dalton was James Bond 007 in 1989‘s Licence To Kill!!!

(What?)

((I DO!))

(((I WIN XMAS EVE!!)))

((((ME!!!))))

(((((DAMMIT! DALTON ROCKED!! ACCEPT IT!!!)))))

BEAN Is A Former “00” Agent Whom Has Gone Rogue, And Whom Is Plotting Against MI 6, And The Rest Of The Words.

SEAN BEAN‘s

(Alex Trevelyan (Formerly 006)

…Is One Of The Very Best BOND Villains Ever Spawned From The “JAMES BOND” Flicks.

Period.

The Pre-Title Sequence…

…OR The Pre-Credit Sequence…

…Is One Of The Very Best Ever To Come From The BOND Universe, Of Which There’s Been A Boat-Full.

It Made A Lasting Impression, That’s A Big FO SHO.

The 1ST Time I Watched It…

…I Was BLOWN AWAY.

Now…

…The 547TH’ish Time I’ve Plopped Down And Watched It…

…Hmm…

…Nope…

…Still BLOWN AWAY!!!

It DOES Rank In My TOP 5 Opening Sequences In BOND-Franchise HISTORY.

#1 = “THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN” (1974)

*2 = “GOLDFINGER” (1962)

#3 = “CASINO ROYALE” (2006)

#4 = “GOLDENEYE” (1995)

#5 = “THE SPY WHO LOVED ME” (1977)

…Is How I Would Rank The PRE-CREDIT/TITLE Portion Of The Flicks.

HOW ABOUT YOU?!
ANY IDEAS Or OPINIONS?!??

GOLDENEYE

…Is The Best Possible Debut PIERCE Could Have Expected.

The Action Is Crazy Intense…

…And it’s Got All The Action/Adventure Elements A Bond Flick Could Hope For.

It’s Totally What The Audience Was Hoping For From BOND In 1995, That’s A Big BIG FO SHO!

It’s Brilliant.

Everything From The Opening “BUNGEE-JUMP SEQUENCE”

…To The “AIRPLANE ESCAPE”

…Through A “TANK CHASE”

…All The Way To The Final Battle At The End…

GOLDENEYE

…Delivers The Goods!!!

GOLDENEYE

…Is The Best Possible Debut Of A New BOND That The BOND Fans Could Have Hoped For.

Pure ACTION And ADVENTURE, Kiddies.

Granted…

…Each Flick PEIRCE Released Was A Little Worse Than That Which Preceded It…

…But Hey…

…Can’t Win ‘Em All.

BUT…

GOLDENEYE

…Does Rank Among The Hierarchy Of BOND Adventures.

.Period Period.

Love It, LOVE IT!!!

And This BLU-RAY Edition Is Fantastic.

You Try Watching…

GOLDENEYE

…On A 55Inch TV…

…In Surround Sound, No Less.

๐Ÿ˜‰

Yeah.

The Film Is Breathtaking.

.Period.

The ONLY BOND’ian Debut That MIGHT Beat This One In A Stick-Poking Contest At K-Mart Is…

CASINO ROYALE

(2006)

…But That’s It!!!

Otherwise…

…It’s ALL About The…

GOLDENEYE

.PERIOD.

๐Ÿ˜€

Please Check This One Out, Kiddies.

It’s A Damn Fine Film…

…Damn Fine, Indeed.

If You Love ACTION And ADVENTURE…

…Then This BOND Flick…

GOLDENEYE

…Is Totally Worth Checking-Out!

It’s One Of The Best Of THE BEST…

…And Will Go Down As One OF The BEST BOND FLICKS, Period, To Star…

PIERCE BROSNAN

…And That’s The BIGGEST FO SHO!!!

Random (Blu-ray) Movie Mention: “RESERVOIR DOGS” (1992)

RESERVOIR DOGS

…Stars…

HARVEY KEITEL

TIM ROTH

MICHAEL MADSEN

STEVE BUSCEMI

CHRIS PENN

…And…

LAWRENCE TIERNEY

…And Was Written AND Directed By…

QUENTIN TARANTINO

๐Ÿ˜€

Let Me Just Say This, My Peeps…

RESERVOIR DOGS

…Is Still My Favorite Flick To Be Directed By…

QUENTIN TARANTINO

.Period.

It’s Nothing Too Fancy.

Just Great Actors…

…Playing Great Characters…

…Spewing Forth Great Dialogue In All Directions.

Scenes Of Crazy F-IN’ Violence…

…An Interesting AND Engrossing Storyline…

…Punctuated Throughout By A Killer Soundtrack.

It’s A Minimalistic Motion Picture…

…Driven By All That I’ve Said Above…

…Making A Need For Anything Else To Be…

…Well…

…Unneeded.

๐Ÿ˜‰

I Actually Saw This Flick For The First Time In 1993.

I Was 13-Years-Old.

My Father Had Rented It, And I Decided To Stay-Up-Late And Watch It In Secret.

After Everyone Else Was Asleep, I Popped-It-On In My Room And…

…Honestly…

…Was Totally Blown Away.

I’d Never Seen…

…Nor Heard…

…Anything Quite Like It, Before.

I Remembering Going To School (Jr. High) The Next Day…

…Talking About It With My Friends AND Others…

…Discovering Quickly I Was The Only One Of Us To Have Seen It.

That Simply Added o The Excitement Over The Whole Situation.

Knowing That I Was Sooooo Coooool To Have Seen This Flick (Though I Wasn’t Supposed To Have Seen It) That None Of My Buds Had Had The Chance To Give A Look See Of Any Kind.

That’s Right…

…Sooooo Coooool, Ineed.

๐Ÿ˜‰

I Was The Only One Of Us To Have Witnessed First Hand The Gritty Wonder That Is The Fi;m…

RESERVOIR DOGS

…And The Introduction Of…

QUENTIN TARANTINO

…To My (And Everyone Else’s) Humble Little World.

Other Flicks Would Follow.

PULP FICTION

JACKIE BROWN

KILL BILL

…But None Had The Impact On Me That…

RESERVOIR DOGS

…Had On Me.

It Stands Out.

It Stands Alone.

It STILL Stands As MY FAVORITE Flick From…

QUENTIN TARANTINO

.Period Period.

The Blu-ray Treatment Is Breathtakingly Awesome…

…And Well Worth The Time (And Money) Invested In It.

Check-It-Out, My Peeps.

You Shant Be Disappointed.

It’s THAT Good.

๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

(Not So) Random (Blu-ray) Movie Mention: “ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER” (2012)

Alright…

…So I Did Get ’round To Watching (On The Blu-ray)

ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER

…And…

…Well…

…What Can I Say?!

Hmm.

Well…

…Honestly…

I Had Fun.

Perhaps Even MORE Fun Than I Rightly Should Have.

Was It A Good Film?

Nah.

Not Really.

Was It A Sufficiently Sufficient “B-Movie”/Action/Horror/Schlock Flick?

Yeah.

Actually, It Was.

๐Ÿ™‚

Is It Gonna Win An “Oscar”?

Nah.

Not At All.

Is It Gonna Get A Couple “Razzie” Noms?

Yeah.

Actually, It (likely) Will.

๐Ÿ™‚

Do I Appear To Give A Rat’s Ass Either Way?

Nah.

Not Really.

Does That In Any Way Take Away From The Cheesy Pleasure I Received From Checking-It-Out?

NOT. AT. ALL.

Period.

๐Ÿ˜€

It Is Was It Is…

…It Is What It Was…

…It Is What It’ll Always Be…

Cheese-Tastic.

Is That EXACTLY What I Expected It To Be?

Yep.

TOTALLY!

๐Ÿ˜€

What?!

Oh, Like You Really Had High Hopes!!

You KNOW You Didn’t.

You KNEW What It Was Going To Be.

And It Was EXACTLY That.

Cheese-Tastic.

Period.

I’ve Seen Worse Flicks, Fo SHO, My Peeps.

I Loved RUFUS SEWELL As The Big Baddie Vamp “Adam”

…So That’s Nifty.

Mr. SEWELL Has Always Been A Personal Fave Of Mine.

A Very VERY Underrated Actor, To Say The Least.

He Helps The Flick Succeed Much More-So Than It Would Have Otherwise.

Or So I Believe.

THE BOTTOM LINE:

ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER

…Is…

…Was…

…Always Will Be…

…BETTER…

…Than A Poke-In-The-Eye…

…With A Sharp-Stick…

…In A K-Mart Parking-Lot.

That’s Good Enough, Right?!

Riiight.

Good Enough, Indeed.

๐Ÿ˜‰ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

What’s On NOW!?!: “FOR YOUR EYES ONLY” (1981) Starring ROGER MOORE As JAMES BOND 007!!!

The Best Of The Best Of The Bunch.

That’s How I Categorize This Flick…

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

(1981)

…Starring…

ROGER MOORE

…As…

JAMES BOND –ย  007

…In What Would Be His Fifth BOND Adventure.

They Say The Third Time’s The Charm…

…And For ROGER

…The Third Time Was More Of A Staple-Point In The World That Is JAMES BOND.

His Third Adventure…

THE SPY WHO LOVED ME

(1977)

…Really Cemented ROGER As BOND.

It Was His Best To Date…

…And The Best BOND Adventure Up To That Point.

I Loved It.

And Then I Saw This One…

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

…And I Was Totally Sold.

It Is…

…By Far Far FAR…

…The Best BOND Of Them All.

At Least…

…In This Blogger’s Humble Opinion.

I Honestly Don’t Know What All To Say Here.

I’ve Been In A Decent Mood…

…I’ve Just Felt Like Arse.

What More Can Be Said?

I’m Just In Pure BOND Mode, Today.

I Have All Of His Adventures On The DVD…

…But Only A Few On The Blu-ray.

I Only Purchased The Ones I Love The Most…

…And That Were Available At The Time.

Mainly…

…Those Available Were…

PIERCE BROSNAN

BOND Adventures…

…Of Which Only One…

GOLDENEYE

(1995)

…Is On My Target List.

I Simply Love…

GOLDENEYE

…Though That’s The Only BROSNAN Flick I Can Honestly Say That About.

Anyway…

…I’m Going To Get Back To Watching…

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

…And Once It’s Over, I’m Going To Watch…

THUNDERBALL

(1965)

…Which Is My Fave Fave From…

SEAN CONNERY

!!! !!!

I Know Everyone Says…

GOLDFINGER

(1964)

…Is The Very Best, Especially Of The CONNERY Flicks.

BUT…

…I Tend To Disagree.

(Of Course)

To ME…

THUNDERBALL

…Is Another Of Those That Is By Far Far FAR The Best Of The Best Of The Bunch.

I LOVE Me Some…

SEAN CONNERY

…And…

THUNDERBALL

…Is My Utmost Favorite!!!

ANYWAY…

…’Tis Time For Me To Kick-It-Back And Enjoy My Flicks.

These Flicks Are GREAT…

…But Having Them On The Blu-ray Is EVEN BETTER!!!

So It’s Time To Enjoy, My Peeps.

Time To Enjoy, Indeed!!!

๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

I Felt Like Warmed-Over-Arse…

…So I Spent The Bulk Of My Saturday In Bed.

I Simply Couldn’t Function.

Period.

I Felt Tired…

…I Felt Lethargic…

…I Felt Mopy And Draggy…

…I Simply Couldn’t Operate Up To Factory Specs.

And I Don’t Even Know What Was Wrong With Me.

It’s Very VERY Unusual For Me To Spend So Much Time Sleeping.

Some Folks Get Away With It…

…But Not I.

And Upon Awaking…

…I Found That I Had Silly Hands.

Silly Hands Means My Hands Are Twitchy.

I Can’t Get Them To Do Exactly As I’d Like…

…Or Exactly As They Would Normally Work.

I Mean, Come On Hands, Work For Me, Dammit, And Work NOW!

It’s Taken Me Forever And A Day Just To Type This Much.

It Sucks.

It Blows HARD, And Not In A Good Way.

There’s Nothing Pleasant About Having Silly Hands.

They Plague Me.

They Are The Bane Of My Existence.

They Cause So Many Issues.

As I Type Onward, They Don’t Improve.

They Only Get Worse.

You Try Typing With Silly Hands.

Or Try Pouring, AND Carrying, A Cup Of Coffee With Them.

Silly Hands Are What Have Kept Me From Doing Any Type Of Technical Work.

Hard To Work On Someone’s Computer When Your Hands Don’t Want To Operate Like They Should.

It’s Maddening.

It’s Frustrating.

It’s A Whole Bunch Of Horseshit, Is What It Is.

And There’s Nothing I Can Do About It.

I Simply Have To Let Them Pass.

Eventually, My Hands Will Go Back To Normal.

Or, As Normal As They’ll Get.

Which Ain’t So Normal.

And NOW I’m Realizing I’ve Spent This Much Time Talking About My Hands.

Sheesh.

Sorry.

Get Me On A Roll About Something, And I’ll Just Babble On And On About It.

My Bad.

What I Meant To Be Talking About Was My Health.

I Don’t Feel Right.

I Don’t Feel Well.

I Feel…

…Hmm…

…How Do I Feel?

I Feel…

…Crappy?

Does Crappy Fit Here?

Crappy SHOULD Fit Here.

I’m Just Not Me.

I Haven’t Been Me All Damned Day.

I Wasn’t Me All Of Yesterday.

Hell, I Wasn’t Even Me This Past Friday.

Just Tired.

Just Draggy.

Just Mopy.

I’d Say I Need To Get Out-N-About And Do Something.

I Would Do So.

But I Sincerely Don’t Know If I’ve Come-Down With Something.

My Temp Was Up A Touch Friday.

I Didn’t Take It Saturday, As I Knew I Didn’t Feel Good.

Perhaps I Should Take It Today?!

Perhaps, Indeed.

I’m Gonna Stop This, Now.

I’m Talking Way Too Much, And For No Good Reason.

As I Said, When I Don’t Feel Good, And I Get On A Topic, I Have The Tendency To Babble.

So I Shall Leave You Be, My Peeps.

I Promise To Work More, Today.

Working Generally Quells My Ill-Feelings.

Let’s Just Hope It Works In This Instance.

I Think I’ll Pop-On A JAMES BOND Flick On The Ole Blu-ray.

That Usually Helps Me Relax.

I’m Thinking…

…Oh…

…How About…

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

…The Flick That Has Become My Favorite Of The ROGER MOORE Bond Adventures.

Yeah.

That Sounds Good.

Some I’m Gonna Go For That.

Why Not, Eh?!

Why Not, Indeed.

๐Ÿ˜‰

Y’all Take Care.

Y’all Be Good.

Y’all See Me Soon.

Y’all Talk To Me Sooner.

I Foresee Another Day In Bed.

Nothing Wrong With That When You’re Sickly, Right?!

RIGHT!?!?!?!

Right.

๐Ÿ˜€
