Dear Sweet Lord Jesus, no ....
Fess up. You loved when the boys were playing volleyball.
Maybe the most homoerotic scene disguising itself as just a game in movie history.
An old Cruise try to resuscitate that role is the epitome of cheesy (and comes off as a little desperate too).
I feel the need. The need for Geritol
Just because it got me hard does NOT mean I'm gay.
Wait....that thing still gets hard?
will kenny loggins be doing the soundtrack?
To be fair, Loggins has kept himself well over 35 years ... cannot say same for some of the others in that flick ...
Kenny then ...
Loggins now ...
McGillis (ummmm ... what?)
Kilmer (good Lord, what happened?)
Skeritt, trying to hold up, but looking like Skeletor ...
and holy hell, Teri Nunn ...
I saw a " sneak peak" on the news...info babe told it's being done over, blah, blah...then showed a close up of Cruise now standing next to his jet. Eyelids drooping, somewhat jowly, looking a little bit tired, and she eays
" that's right, it's coming back...and Tom Cruise hasn't changed at all".
I still don't know if she actually believed it, or was being sarcastic.
Val Kilmer has been fighting cancer for a long time, I believe.
Did not know that about Kilmer ...now I'm the asshole. Not the first time for that ...
Kilmer made a flick a few years ago, before he started packing on pounds. It was called Spartan. Superb movie, written and directed by David Mamet, one of my favorites anyway. Great cast, including Ed O'Neill, William H. Macy, Derek Luke, and even Kristin Bell. Sleeper movie. For some reason, it bombed. But it's the third best Kilmer film - behind Heat and Tombstone, and I highly recommend it.
He jumped the shark initially when he imitated Brando in" The Island of Dr. Moreau"...it was so bad ( Brando certifiable), but I watch it whenver it's on.
Mamet definitely one of my favorites, too.
House of Games and Things Change are two offbeat and.intricately crafted stories, never miss them. Just love the dialogue in House of Games. Joe Montegna it his best.
Spartan a do not miss film, I agree.
highly recommend "kiss kiss, bang bang" with kilmer and robert downey jr
I like Terry Nunn now more than then.
Geezer lust, I guess.
Not altogether ANTI Terri Nunn (now) ... but she might've gotten some help with gravity on those girls, yes? Or maybe that's just my problem ...
House of Games .... bravo, sir. I have known fewer than a dozen people who ever saw that flick.
My two go-to's in the 80s when I rec a film are Mamet's House of Games & John Sayles' Matewan. Each is arguably a perfect film in every way.
I enjoyed everything written or directed by Mamet.
He would take a pedestrian format tv show and turn it into something special.
The Unit with all the wife stuff would have been boring or silly like most of the other shows on CBS.
Military ops based shows are not easy to pull off. Specially when you have to share the hour with the wives situation at home. Instead of the wives being a stupid sideshow it dealt with the realities of base living and the struggles wives have with the military higher ups when their husbands are deployed.
Homicide was the best cop show.
In fact whenever Mamet tackles a subject you can look back and see that it went down as the best written movie that tackled the material. Many times it was the first
He was the guy behind Always Be Closing.
Wag the Dog was a great take on our politics.
Untouchables is untouchable.
Most of his reality based movies were really good at showing the things in our culture that would become widespread in the future. He has a bunch of these.
Mamet got more out of Mantegna and De Niro than even Scorsese.
Yet I don't remember ever watching House of Games.
I checked ... it is free to watch on TubiTV right now.
Speaking of Mamet, Kilmer was in one of his films, Spartan, which was actually very good.
It also starred a very young Kristen Bell.
