Was happy to see this hit Netflix, finally got the chance to see it. Neat movie, sort of a Mad Max with BMX bikes thing with a bunch of gore. It does take a bit of the style/tones of 80s stuff, but it is subtle enough to stand on its own (It's not bashing you over the head with "hey do you remember this back in the day!!" sorta thing). The soundtrack is great too. Def recommend this one.

This shit was dope. Took me back to being a 13 year old again. Definitely not for everyone though, if you like films like Hobo With A Shotgun, Cyborg, Shogun Assassin and other ridiculously gorey Action/Sci-Fi stuff you are in for a treat.

Any reason they stole the font/design from Turok: Dinosaur Hunter?

I guess it was based on his autobiography. Ive read so many biographies that I have left little for discovery. I saw the trailer and Cheadle has the voice down. It was either him or the great thespian Eddie Griffin.

Prob not gonna live up to Big Adventure, but it's cool to see them kind of treating the movie in the same spirit (instead of trying to make it "modern" or out of place pop culture references).

Article by Lucius Shepard (1943-2014) from 2005

Time for a thousand or so of the world’s shallowest people to dye their hair, mask their imperfections beneath layers of make-up, don their tuxes and gowns, and do their best group impression of Madame Tussaud’s. Time for Wolfgang Puck to ponce about while flaming a crepe for a gibbering Katie Couric, and for Sir Elton (our devolved era’s Truman Capote) to throw a party that rivals a Borgia rite-of-passage orgy with serving girls painted to look like gilt dominoes and an amazing mechanical bird that tweets heavy metal. Time for wretched excess, for extravagance and endless simpering, all in celebration of a tepid art.

i thought the show reached peak irony when the genius producers decided to play "Fight the Power" by Public Enemy during the credit roll...

i mean, there's missing the point. and then there's completely missing the point lol -- but nothing makes me laugh harder than a bunch of rich white cucks failing to understand any of Black America's grievances toward the award show they were boycotting.

ah yes, nothing says "we gotta fight the powers that be" like showing b-roll of old people in suits getting up from their chairs and hugging each other warmly. Chuck D would be proud

lmao dude the alternative would have been what, chuck d coming out live to slap the front row in the face?

I couldn't believe how hard they went, like every joke chris rock made was about race. if you don't think that crowd was super uncomfortable for the majority of the show, i'd have to disagree. sure, it wasn't all funny (it's the oscars, they have never been consistent), but for them to not only acknowledge it but to make every free moment of the show revolve around it was surprising to me personally, not knowing what to expect going in.

chris rock walked out to fight the power, and it actually is a pretty clear fuck you to the industry. that's the oscar ceremony painting hollywood as a villain right to its face. it's a small gesture with little effect, sure, but not an entirely meaningless one.
