It's the week of Crypticon 2014, so we just ran to the nearest theater & let ourselves loose.
In the 1st installment in our 2014 Summer Slut Movie Spectacular, we lead off with some spy action, a bit of web slinging & good ol' destruction of public property, JAPANESE STYLE.
We'll return to our previously scheduled program next week. Same Slut Time (roughly), Same Slut Channel. Site. Whatever. Til then: ENJOY!
What did we learn in the horror prep sessions? A: Pulse movies (Japan & US) - meh, though Japan had better messages. B: Amer Horror Story, neat; The Killing, not really horror but pretty good drama. C: C. Thomas Howell in 1986 is better than 2 actors in 2007 (check out the 2001 sequel with him, Jake Busey & Kari Wuhrer - not bad, plus it's on Netflix so it's easy).

2014 is definitely not pulling its punches. Not even halfway thru the year and we've already lost some of the greatest: Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Shirley Temple, Harold Ramis. And just a few weeks ago, another great was robbed from us, far too soon: Bob Hoskins.
It wasn't until we were compiling our dossier on Hoskins that we realized just how much he had done and how little of his work we had seen. We're hoping to remedy that, but in the meantime, we chose some of our favorites to highlight the talent of this truly gifted actor.
We marveled at cartoon crossovers, trembled at the sight of a scary mob boss, & laughed until our eye patches hurt. So, we tip yet again another Mtn. Dew in salute to a glorious career. Bob, fun. Hello Bob - Bye Bob. Sonofabitching Bob

You can't always tell the bad guy by the black hat. Sometimes, it isn't human at all. Here are a few examples of the adversity we face that has no face. Spanning about 15 years, these flix have different approaches to storytelling and heroism. Certainly, they are abby normal
in who they make the antagonist bad guy.
Now when you think of Phillip Bailey
, you're not gonna think of Phil Collins: you're gonna think of Phillip Seymour Hoffman, & Helen Hunt, & Bill Paxton, & Dustin Hoffman. Why Dustin Hoffman? You gotta listen to find out. Collect episodes & win!! S & H apply. Some assembly required. Not legal in all states. Use only as directed.

As single shines the triple sun, the Triforce is re-sundered with Matt's return. To ease his passing, we opted to do only 2 movies this week: as promised, it's a Snipes off!! Where will our love be placed and where will the hammer fall? Listen and find out.
Wesley Snipes came out of some great comedy in his early career, but his drama with Spike Lee rounded him out. Then he surprised us with his knowledge of the martial arts and was flung into being an action star; it was like Jason Statham, but with less taxes. These 2 films took the audience on in different ways, so which arose the victor for us? The answer may surprise you. Or, it may not. But it might. Also, it might not.
P.S. We forgot to mention the silliness of the dental appliance for Snipes that wasn't really necessary with few exceptions; making him sound like he was acting through his lunch.
