Bangkok Dangerously close to another flop...


Well, the long weekend was pretty much a bust, except for a nice evening of chatting over at a friends on Saturday night. We ordered in (apparently a challenge to do for 16+ people) and had a nice relaxing evening.
That's just it though...all of the other evenings we really did nothing. Long weekends were conceived to give us working class stiffs a chance to actually 'party-down' once in a while, and we/the weather busted up that notion quite nicely.

We are watching Hero's season 2 right now on DVD, and it's not the best show to watch this way. I found continuity errors (Me watch the show good!), and a general 'cheesiness' throughout.

*Wait* I can read your mind...you're thinking "Wow, Mike. Cheesiness in a television show about superhero's....what a surprise!" And you have a sarcastic tone while thinking it...

Well, Joe or Jane Evryreader.... I respond by saying that though it is not to the level of the original Batman series, it is still pretty bad. For a 'prime time series', it should not be this bad.


Upcoming movies of interest:

This Week: Nothing.

Bangkok Dangerous sounds like some sort of STD that I want to avoid at all costs...and that's as good a reason as any not to watch another Nicholas Cage movie that is not a sequel to National Treasure....

Administrator's Edit:

I forgot to discuss the movie poster for Bangkok Schmangerous. Is that lava in the poster? Is Nicholas Cage's latest fallible character going to encounter a boiling lake of lava throughout his baddass'ish exploits through Bangkok? Really? Bangkok? Lava? I don't think so.

Also, receding hair line + long hair in the back and sides is a bad, bad look. And what's with his right hand? It looks like he should be holding a gun, and his other hand is apparently reaching for his wallet...

This movie looks terrible....the preview is kinda dumb too...Nothing is Deadlier than a hitman who hits back....Wow.

    Nick Cage seems to grow his hair out in a cycle of one out of about every four movies, i.e. ConAir, Next and now Bangkok Express
