Parker is a heist movie with a fairly typical plot, heist, double cross, bigger heist, revenge. Think The Town crossed with Payback, but with better acting than the former and nowhere near as dark as the latter. It stands out in two ways, 1 Jason Statham doesnt drive and 2 Jennifer Lopez is in it. Sure the fight scenes are ridiculous, but its the same as all other movies currently in that respect.
Verdict 7 shaved heads out of a possible ten.
The delicious Jennifer in a scene from the movie.
After a weekend of Doctor Who specials you would think this would be a Billie Piper post wouldn’t you? Well for some reason she doesn’t do it for me. Karen however, does.
I don’t get whatever channel Dr Who is on, BBC America presumably, so i haven’t seen any of the ‘new’ Dr series. With the 50th celebrations showing every regeneration episode i got to see some of what i missed. Some Dr’s, some goofy outfits, some companions, some Daleks, but Amy stole me in the half of the episode of her i saw (stupid family obligations). So here is some more of her.
I’m 12 mins in to this, that’s 11 mins (including title sequences) after i thought “this is crap”. I can no longer go on.
If anyone knows how to work the tor internet to get to the site mentioned here, I want you to put a 100 bitcoin price on jj abrams. His existence cannot be allowed any longer.
Wont somebody think of the children.
Edit. As its minus 40 and there was nothing on tv i watched the rest of the movie. It just got worse.
It fails in many cliched prequel pitfalls.
The tech cant be better than the future (original) tech. This rule was broken too many times to count. Most notably the enterprise bridge view screen cannot be a magical transparent force field if it wasn’t in tos. Also, if kahns blood magically fixes kirk, why isnt it harvested and used to cure everything?
Why is the black lesbian who cant act from under the dome on the bridge?
I cant go on talking about this without access to a therapist. Thank you jjabrams for ruining a perfectly good sci fi franchise that had run for almost 50 years.
Star Trek RIP 1964 -2013, after a prolonged four year illness it now has peace.
I had no background on this, i wasn’t aware of the original short stories or any of that. I wasn’t even really sure what it was about before i watched it. I thought it was a pretty good movie, right up to the last 2 mins. I understand why that is there, but i really wonder if it wouldn’t have been better on the cutting room floor.
Overall; 7 spacesuits out of ten. Worth watching.
I class this as iconic ska, but madness, early no doubt, all counts too.
Wikipedia says i grew up with 2 tone ska. You learn something everyday.
A little madness.
Interesting background info here at the BBC.
I have always had a thing for Gwen, i like her look, the goofy outfits, her music, her singing (assuming that it isnt all computer generated) her ska type beginnings (remember to post something ska tomorrow) and her practically perfect bust size. I am surprised it took me so long to post her here.
I think i shall add my favorite Gwen video too.
