A few days ago I watched a movie called Wonderland on IFC. It stars Val Kilmer as the deceased porn star John Holmes. Well.. Kilmer does not play a deceased John Holmes but, you know what I mean...Anyhow

Based on true events, It centers not on Holmes porn career but instead around his involvment in a quadrupal homicide in a crack house on Wonderland Ave. in West Hollywood. It has a bunch of people in it. Val Kilmer, Lisa Kudrow, Christina Applegate, Dylan McDermott. Josh Lucas, Carrie Fisher, Janeane Garafalo (however you hardly notice her thank goodness)... Not a bad flick that although violent is not as gritty as say Resevoir Dogs or Pulp Fiction. It also does not have the intense sexual situations and nudity one would expect from a film centered around a porn actor. That being said, it is certainly not a kids film.

Memoirs of a Geisha (my wife rented it and I agreed to watch it with her). Not a bad movie because there were quite a few pipe sightings.

"Two Weeks Notice", a Sandra Bullock chick flik (which I happened to enjoy). Had to watch it though as a trade-off for "The Quiet Man" which Judy and I now own (thanks to himself, a fine member of the human race).

"The Way of the Gun"

Not lovin it all that much. Passable, but very violent in a gratuitous way, kind of hard to follow, not all that facinating. It gets a big "eh" from me.

Incidentally, if anyone wants to me add me their netflix buddy list, go for it.

i heard that they cut like 40 minutes from the original to show in the states...which may be why it was so seemingly stupid. I loved the action, but it seemed like the film's editor was on some really strong stuff...i'm surprised i got as much as i did!!!

My personal favorite is when a guy (the other asian, the cop) gets arrested and literaly one seen later, with no explanation, the same cop hops out of an elevator shoots 5 bad guys and saves the day... WAAAH???!

He was probably my least favorite (in terms of believability)... I really liked when the first giant came out... and then laughed my head off when all 4 came out... and then the one picked up and threw the elephant!! HAHHAHAHAHA!

have been downloading movies from the net (old ones) and have watched several Roy Rogers movies, a Sherlock Holmes with Basil Rathbone some Tim McCoy and a few Little Rascals. Some are silent movies,, some talkies.
I like my pipes bent and my razors straight.
