Goodnight Mr. Macnee

http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/multimedia/archive/00064/76221806_Hat_64947c.jpg


Patrick Macnee died. He was 93 so that's a pretty good run. Still, my selfish ass would prefer if the greats were with us forever. It had a double whammy with a recent interview with Diana Rigg who said they hadn't seen each other in years and it would be could to meet and catch up again. My lovely wife put The Avengers on HULU while I slept so I woke up to some classic black and white Avengers.
I still remember being at a relatives house, leafing through a TV Guide when I came upon a listing for The Avengers. Being a huge comic book nerd I was flabbergasted. I asked my aunt if they got this channel and she said they did. I turned the knob so fast it sparked and prepared to watch something amazing.
Then I got The Avengers.
Sure, it wasn't what I expected, but it was a color episode with the killer toy shop in it.
I was hooked.
Steed was cool, Mrs Peel was gorgeous and probably responsible for a jumpstart into puberty.
Since then I have watched them all. I never get tired of them and they are probably one of my favorite teams on television.
Goodbye Mr. Steed.
We shall never forget you and will miss you every day.
I think after work I'm going to go home and watch some more Avengers.

UM...WHAT???




So, there are new commercials with Colonel Sanders in them??? And Darrell Hammond is playing Colonel Sanders??? I'm just checking; Am I the only one offended here? Next thing you know they're going to have someone play Mad Max and it won;t be Mel Gibson.
Uh-Oh!
Whoops!

BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA REMAKE

Just heard about this little abomination. Why would you remake this classic? You can't say the money. It lost money when it was first released. And Kurt Russell isn't dead? Why would you remake it? How about a sequel instead using Russell? We would all rather have this instead. Hell, John Carpenter could o it for half the money and it would be so damned cool.
Hollywood is stupid.
I wish that last sentence was news of some sort.
But, it isn't.

REVIEWS OF MOVIES I HAVEN'T SEEN: MAD MAX; FURY ROAD

Ignore this


Okay, let's make this simple. This is one of those reboot/reimaginings that Hollywood is famous for. I personally do not care for them. Add to the fact that I like all three of the original films and consider THE ROAD WARRIOR to be in my permanent all time Top Ten list and you know I'm not watching this thing.
It reminds me of Zack Snyder's DAWN OF THE DEAD. Might have been a great flick...if you didn't call it that. This one seems to have gone the same way.
I hear he saves the equivalent of post apocalyptic Victoria's Secret models???
Really???
Now, I'm not sure if it's true, it's just what I heard.
My Max wouldn't waste his time. This was a man thrust into a situation. The world is on the verge and with one fell swoop, his world is shattered and he becomes a man fueled by vengeance. Even when that fire burns out he is still focused on just surviving a world he never asked to be a part of. He saves a group of people in one film and then a group of children in the next. It's about family. Max is all about protecting family.
Victoria's Secret Models???
Even if they aren't that, just saving the wives of the bad guy seems like a situation my Max would never even get near.
So, in the end, right or wrong, I see no reason to watch this.
I'm going to fire up The Road Warrior this weekend.
Such a good movie.

Watch this.

RISE OF THE ANIMALS (2011)








First up, let's give credit where credit is due;

Directed by Chris Wojcik
Written by Chris Wojcik
Starring Greg Hoople as Wolf,  Stephanie Motta as Rachel and Adam Schonberg as Jake

So, from time to time I try out new ROKU channels with my ROKU box. Recently, there was a new channel that just said Watch Horror Movies For Free. I'm a big fan of free and I know that most of these have commercial interruptions, but I'm used to commercials so it's like a blast from the past for me.
I signed up for the channel and spotted this movie right away. I had heard of it before, but never sought it out.
I should have watched sooner.
