Sunday Cinema – Green Street Hooligans

 

Green Hooligans

An odd, limited-release film from 2005, this movie has some fairly well-known stars such as Elijah Wood (“The Fellowship of the Ring”), Charlie Hunnam (“Sons of Anarchy”), & Claire Forlani (“Mallrats”). Matt is expelled from Harvard when a stash of cocaine is found in his possession. He ends up traveling to Europe to stay with his sister and her family. After getting beaten up by a gang of youths, Matt is introduced into the culture of the “football hooligan” and learns quickly what that means.

Someone posted the film online for all of us to enjoy!

Sunday Cinema – The Green Hornet

 

Green Hornet

No, we’re not talking about the recent crappy remake with Set Rogen, we’re talking about the ORIGINAL 1939 movie starring Gordon Jones as “The Green Hornet” & Keye Luke as his trusty sidekick, Kato.

Gordon Jones was a pretty busy movie actor in the 1930’s and 40’s that transitioned well into the television era but died too young (age 52). Keye Luke might not sound like a familiar name but for us Gen Xers, we know him well. Ever hear of a little show called “Kung Fu”? He played Master Po, the mentor to Caine (David Carradine). Or how about the “Gremlins” series of movies? He played Mr. Wing (“Grandpa”), the owner of Gizmo the Mogwai.

The movie is apparently a collection of 13 serial episodes that played before feature films back in the day. You’d have to go to the movies each week to see what happened next (great draw to get butts in seats!).

Boot the Reboots

Boot the Reboots

 

Due to the recent school schootings in Parkland, FL, Paramount has decided to postpone the television reboot of “Heathers”.

Think working 40 hours a week is a b*tch? South Korea is cutting back on their 68-hour work weeks

Paul Sr. is being sued yet again for sabotaging a revival of the previously popular show “American Chopper”. While in the meantime, his home is currently in foreclosure

China has censored the letter “N” and Winnie-The-Pooh in response to their president’s recent victory of removing term limits – effectively allowing him to rule for life.

Not good for the GOP, one lawmaker posits that if Jews were armed then they could have defeated the Nazis…

Iron Maiden has lent their music/images/Eddie to a new mobile game called “Legacy of the Beast“. It’s a Final Fantasy-type turn-based fighting game that finds Eddie traveling through different lands with the help of The Clairvoyant. Of course there are micro-transactions to buy power-up items & hey, if you join – search for our account under “My Troopers” on the main screen, MattyV1973-4488.

In looking for films/television shows for March’s “Sunday Cinema”, we came across this channel that was a bit jarring. A woman who does movie/video game reviews, rants, & tackles other topics while topless. She got banned from posting more videos and had to censor many, but ones like this are still uncensored. She apparently has moved to Vimeo which is more lenient in their content censorship…

Sunday Cinema – Big Green

 

Big Green

 

For the month of March we will be looking at “green” movies! Those associated with the word green.

“The Big Green” is one of those “fluff” movies that often come out during the lulls between box office “holiday” blasts. This one debuted at the end of September of 1995, so it fits right in between Labor Day and Thanksgiving.

Olivia D’Abo (the oldest daughter from “The Wonder Years”) stars as a foreign exchange teacher from England who teaches at a rural Texas town & helps her students that are interested in Soccer (“football” in England). Think of the film as “The Mighty Ducks” meets Pele). The film also stars some famous-at-the-time child actors such as Patrick Renna & Chauncey Leopardi (from “The Sandlot”) and Bug Hall (“The Little Rascals” film remake). It also co-stars Steve Guttenberg (“Police Academy”, “Three Men and a Baby”) in the role of the local Sheriff who is determined to bed the new teacher (it’s a given, even though nothing is mentioned throughout the film – you know what’s up).

There are a ton of sh*tty copies online, we were able to find the least-sh*ttiest that someone literally recorded in front of a television.

Sunday Cinema – “The Brain…”

 

Brain

 

For the month of March we will be looking at “green” movies! Those associated with the word green.

“The Brain That Wouldn’t Die” is one written & directed by Joseph Green(!) and was released back in 1962. Made on a budget of $62,000 (a lot of money for the time), the movie did fairly well at the box office.

Young Dr. Cortner has been experimenting on human transplantation without authorization and against the advice of his father, also a surgeon. When his girlfriend gets into a car accident, Dr. Cortner does surgery to keep her head alive until he can find a suitable “donor” body. Then it just gets creepy…

There are several different prints available from the original theatrical print to the TCM restored print. This is supposedly the rough Director’s Cut,  which was too graphic for American Television broadcast.
