    G-S-T Quick 5 – Favorite Vigilante Films

    vig·i·lan·te: any person who takes the law into his or her own hands, as by avenging a crime. A mainstay in the film world for decades, vigilantes come in all shapes in sizes and work their special brand of street justice for a variety of reasons. In some cases they operate just outside the law and work in secret. But then again there are those who work with the law and are not so secret about their bone-crunching ways. I guess you can say that vigilantes are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re gonna get…except the outcome which finds baddies getting what they deserve. Now there are…

    TFW 2011 – Closing Night Recap

    Unfortunately I missed Saturday’s events but Sunday was sort of a free for all, replete with the funniest Q&A I’ve ever attended. I’ll be brief and let you look at all the pictures and have a listen to The Boondock Saints Q&A session. A special bonus for all you Saints fans, I wasn’t able to arrange an interview with all three of them but I did catch David Della Rocco in the lobby and he graciously agreed to a very off the cuff inteview. Check that out at the very bottom after the more random but interesing photos from the last day. This side splitting Q & A session was expertly hosted by…

    Off the Netflix Queue…'The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day'

    Being a huge fan of the original cult classic, I should have been excited to see the loooong rumored and even longer in-development sequel. Since the fallout of Troy Duffy, as depicted in Overnight (which is somewhat of a smear campaign), it seemed like no one would take a chance on Duffy and without significant funding the sequel would never have happened. But like the little engine that could, Duffy got the sequel that no one thought would see the light of day made. And the outcome? In short it was sooo much better than I was expecting from the dreadful looking trailers. Well I’d say I’m eating my words.

    Sweet Trailer…'Boondock Saints II'

    The day has finally come to get our first look at the highly anticipated sequel to one of the most revered cult classics, The Boondock Saints.  I have posted the trailer below so please, sit back and enjoy… [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CmDhSNssaOI] Now I love the first Boondock Saints and it is one of the more played movies in my library.  Despite my feelings about the original, I have to say that this looks a little cheap, possibly (like the case of Crystal Skull)  too little, too late.  And oh, how the might have fallen.  The entire gang (sans Willem Dafoe) is back for this sequel but the years have not been kind…
