What’s On Now?! The 1964 Classic “ZULU”!!!

Good Morning, Y’all.

Hope You’re Swell.

I Continue To Function.

Didn’t Sleep Worth Nothin’, But I Live.

Since I Was In Such A Downer Of A Mood Upon Awakening This Morning, I Decided To Pop A Flick Onto The Tube And Just Veg For A Bit.

As The Headline States…

…I’m Kicking It Back With The Personal Favorite…

ZULU

…Starring…

STANLEY BAKER

&

JACK HAWKINS

&

MICHAEL CAINE

!!! !!!

๐Ÿ˜€

I First Saw…

ZULU

…Way Back In The Ole Junior High Days.

It’s One Of Those Flicks You See Early On…

…Forget About…

…Then See It Again 10-Yeas-Later And Be Like…

"Oh, Snap! I Remember This One! Cool Beans!"

๐Ÿ™‚

This Was Another Of Those Purchases That Came-About Because Of The Wal-Mart And Its Loverly $5 DVD Bins.

You Can Find Some Real Crackerjacks In There Sometimes.

Some Proverbial Diamonds-In-The-Rough, So To Speak.

I Would Easily Consider Finding…

ZULU

…For $5 To Be Well, Well Worth-It.

Wouldn’t You?!

You Don’t Know?!

Ah…

…You’ve Never Seen It.

Don’t Worry.

Most People These Days Haven’t.

I Suppose It’s A Flick Most Folks Just Don’t Think About Anymore.

BUT…

…I DO.

The Story Here Is Very Simple.

A British Militia…

…In Africa…

…Comes Under Attack By 4,000 ZULU-WARRIORS…

…And The 100-Man-Militia Has No Where To Run.

So They Stand Their Ground…

…And They Fight.

And They Fight.

And, Yes, They Fight Some More.

The Outcome?!

Nah.

Ain’t Tellin’ Ya.

You’ve Gotta Watch It To Find-Out How It Turns-Out.

Ya Know Ya Know!?

Good.

I Hate Spoilers.

Sometimes, They’re 100% Called For, Sure Sure.

Sometimes, I’m Just 100% Not Tellin’!!!

๐Ÿ˜›

I Will Say This…

ZULU

…Isn’t 100% Accurate In Its Storytelling…

…And That Part MIGHT Bug A Few People.

BUT…

…It Didn’t Bug Me Too Much.

In Fact, I Wasย Thoroughly Entertained.

It’s Just One Of Those Forgotten Classics I’m Always Talking About.

To ME…

ZULU

…Is Quite The Fun Little Yarn…

…And Easily Worth The Time You’ll Invest In It.

(It's Almost 2-Hours And 20-Minutes Long.)

I Enjoy A Quality “War Epic” From Time To Time…

…Regardless Of Who’s Doing The Fighting.

This Is A Pretty Good One.

So Fans Of The Genera Will (likely) Lap-It-Up.

If Ya Get Bored…

…You Could Do A Lot Worse.

ZULU

…Is Pretty Nifty, Fo SHO!

๐Ÿ˜‰

Alright, Kids…

…Let’s Get’er Movin’ Movin’ Movin’ This Morning.

Time’s-A-Wastin’!!!

I’ve Gotta Try Getting A Walk In Before The Rains Hit.

See Me Soon…

…AND Talk To Me Sooner.

Much Love, My Peeps.

L8r.

What’s On NOW? “GET CARTER” (1971) … What’s On NEXT? “GET CARTER” (2000)

GET CARTER

(1971)

…Is A Damn-Fine-Flick…

…And…

…One Of The Very Best…

…From Actor…

MICHAEL CAINE

…And…

…From Writer/Director…

MIKE HODGES

.PERIOD.

… … …

… …

… … …

GET CARTER

(2000)

…Ain’t So Good…

…And…

SYLVESTER STALLONE

…Simply Didn’t Hit-The-Mark…

…At Least…

…To ME.

… … …

… …

… … …

MICHAEL CAINE’s

Jack Carter

…Is…

…Cold…

…Cruel…

…Methodical…

…Driven…

…Exactly As He Should Be.

SYLVESTER STALLONE’s

Jack Carter

…Ain’t.

He’s More Of A Thug, Honestly.

He Doesn’t Really Make Me Wanna Find-Out What’s Up…

…Or Why He’s Doing As He’s Doing.

He Just Kinda Flutters About…

…Cracking A Skull Here And There.

MICHAEL CAINE’s

Jack Carter

…Makes Me Say To Myself…

“I Wouldn’t Want THAT GUY After Me For ANYTHING. He’d Make Sure He Got Me, No Matter How Long It Might Take.”

SLY’s

Jack Carter

…Makes Me Say To Myself…

“Wow, If This Dude Was MICHAEL CAINE, I Wouldn’t Want THAT GUY After Me For ANYTHING. He’d Make Sure He Got Me, No Matter How Long It Might Take.”

Yeah.

Exactly.

My Point Appears Made.

… … …

… …

… … …

GET CARTER

(1971)

…Is…

…A GREAT MOTION PICTURE Of Its Genera.

GET CARTER

(2000)

…Is…

…Not.

SOOOOOOO…

…Why Do I OWN Them BOTH You Ask???

Well…

…I Own…

MICHAEL CAINE’s VERSION

…Because I LOVE IT.

.PERIOD.

While…

…I Own…

SYLVESTER STALLONE’s VERSION

…Because I BOUGHT IT BEFORE I EVER WATCHED IT.

.PERIOD.

Now…

…Why Am I WATCHING Both?

Well…

…I’m Watching The Original…

…Because It’s Great…

…And I’m Watching The Remake…

…Because It’s NOT Great.

(hehehehehe)

Such Is Life, I Suppose.

Right???

RIGHT!!!
