Some that I've seen

In the last couple weeks, i've been watching movies like crazy. Been super cold...and hey...bills been a coming. Detroit Edison i swear is a monopoly. So with that, heres the movies that i've seen:


                                                                  
The Last Dragon

Now, I've seen parts of this movie, but never the whole thing from beginning to end. And i have to say, you can really see how dated this movie was. Made in 85', you had Leroy Green ( Taimak ) walking around in a karate suit with w huge straw hat....um...yea. And it wasn't like he was in Chinatown somewhere. And the Shogun of Harlem aka Sho'Nuff...was a true character. I hear that there is suppose to be a remake with Sam Jackson Playing Sho'Nuff....curious to see how that is gonna work out.

                                                                  
Enter the Dragon

Watching The Last Dragon prompted me to wanna see some Bruce Lee. I've watched this movie plenty of times, but its a classic! Funny how stereotypes was still shown back then . Like why did the black guy (Williams) had to be hassled by the cops? lol. But that was a great movie. That and Chinese Connection was 2 of the better Bruce Lee movies in my opinion.



                                                                  
Grand Torino

Now, if this movie wasnt made in Metro Detroit, im not too sure of i would of even watched it. Clint Eastwood is cool...but, he aint all that. But was impressed by with his acting in this movie. he was an evil ass in it too!! Most of the movie was filmed in Highland Park, which isnt too big at all and isnt one of the greatest parts of metro detroit...which made me even more curious to see it.

                                                                       
The Express

This one was about Ernie Davis, the first black Heisman trophy winner. Rob Brown ( Jamal from Finding Forrester) played Davis and Dennis Quaid was his coach. Really interesting to see how sports was so heavily affected with segregation in the 50's and the 60's. Definitely would recommend this movie .

                                                                      
Marley & Me

This movie truly reminded me about my dog...it was crazy. Most Owen Wilson movies are pretty cool anyhow. Marley was Labrador was deemed as the worse dog ever in the movie....which makes me wonder about my "active dog" , lol. Maybe its the Lab in my dog that make me relate the two. Overall, I think for dog lovers or not, was a good movie.

Happy Monday folks!!

LOVED The Express. Mad that he died so young.

Who in their right mind would take home the "clearance dog." They deserved all their pain and suffering for their stupidity.

The Last Dragon is a horrible movie, but I loved it as kid. Probably had to do with Vanity. She was hot!

The only other one I've seen was Enter The Dragon, but I don't remember much about it.
