Save some cash, watch the OG movie — Bloodsport

6 Apr

bloodsportfightingposter.jpgAfter someone at our office nearly wasted their cash on the movie “12 Rounds” (until he found out it wasn’t about boxing and it starred WWE’s chunk of muscle, John Cena), we’d like to give everyone a recession-friendly (whatever that means) alternative to blowing a bunch of hard-earned loot on a sure-to-be-awful film, “Fighting.” If you haven’t seen the trailer, you can find it below.

Our request: If you must see a bad movie about people getting into fights, check out Jean-Claude Van Damme’s 1988 masterpiece, “Bloodsport” instead. By far, it’s one of the best films of JCVD’s lousy acting library (although “Timecop” is a close second on the list) and will surely be better than “Fighting.” That’s a Max guarantee. Would we lie?

Early guess: No Van Damme = no reason to bother seeing “Fighting.”

Costner bringing Field of Dreams to life

4 Feb
As a way to give back to the community, Kevin Costner is going to combine the concept of his film “Field of Dreams” — arguably his best movie — and pair it with the non-accented character he played in “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves” to build a baseball stadium in the midwest in time for the Northern League’s 2010 season.
It’s projected that once Kev builds it, about 300 jobs will come. While that’s a good thing, we can’t help but feel the real victor here is the movie industry, since Costner will hopefully be too caught up with construction of the baseball diamond to film another lousy movie.


Costner’s garbage movies list:
  1. Swing Vote
  2. The Upside of Anger
  3. Dragonfly
  4. Waterworld*
  5. 13 Days
  6. Open Range
  7. Rumor Has It
  8. Mr. Brooks
  9. Message in a Bottle
* Denotes film is in contention for worst movie ever.
