Walken is epic. One of my all time—albeit cheesy—favorite villians is Lithgow’s character in Cliffhanger.

Movies/ shows-wise I just wrapped up my Cobra Kai season 3 binge. It continues to call to my childhood. Here’s to season 4!

True Romance is my favorite Walken villain. That scene with Dennis Hopper is classic. Also, youtube his SNL sketch, "The Continental".
Unfortunately I don't have True Romance in my collection yet.

Going with some John Malkovich today: Con Air, In the Line of Fire, RED and RED 2

How many bad movies has Tommy Lee Jones made?

Haha, I doubt they’re hardly ready for Coal Miner’s Daughter. Maybe MIB?...
He was kinda funny in MIB without trying to be. And even though Under Seige was atrocious, he still played that role great.

Just picked up the 6th movie in the Alien franchise, so the next couple of days will be spent watching Alien, Aliens, Alien 3, Alien Resuurection and Alien Covenant. Still missing the 5th movie in the series Alien Prometheus.

How dare you! Under Siege is 90s action fluff at its best. As far as bad TLJ films, what was the one about the cheerleaders?

I'm definitely not a Star Wars buff, but finally caved in and finished season 1 of the Mandalorian. Obviously, the girls thought "the child" was uber-adorable. Overall, it wasn't too bad. I'll be moving on to season 2 soon.

Movies-wise, I'm still awaiting Coming To America 2, and Thor: Love and Thunder (anxious to see the Guardians 3 tie-in).

Documentaries-wise, Fear City was good, and I'm awaiting season 2 (big crime drama nerd), and just started part 1 of the Tiger documentary on HBO. Yay.

I'm excited MCU finally returned with WandaVision. I binge watched all 3 released episodes the other day lol (Is this how we really used to watch TV, waiting a whole week for new episodes?? Seems so long ago lol). Supposedly the Disney+ MCU shows are going to tie directly into the movies, and the Doctor Strange movie (Multiverse of Madness) will tie directly into WandaVision and at least the Spider-Man movie (considering they're talking about all 3 Spider-Man actors, and other actors and characters from those series reprising their roles, definitely smacks at the whole multiverse idea, like an MCU version of the animated Miles Morales Spider-verse movie that came out a few years back? That was a gorgeous movie btw).

Def be cool to see how Thor and Guardians get tied in with all the Multiverse Madness lol

I did read a recent article on how WandaVision is supposed to tie in to the new Dr. Strange movie. One of our pilots is a mega-comic nerd so we’ll talk shop here and there.

I haven’t seen WandaVision yet—it did look a bit odd. The article I’d read explained things well, and mentioned the Spiderman tie in you’ve alluded to.

In general movie thread news, I feel asleep to The Pianist last night. Probably my third or fourth time watching it. Excellent piece. Also, what happened to Adrien Brody?

Adrien Brody had a couple of very public, awkward moments -- one on SNL and another at the Oscars. I think the damage is long-term.

Went old school and picked up all three Friday movies and the entire Columbo series (mom got me into it) and the entire Briscoe County Jr series ( I'm a Bruce Campbell fan). Now to rip them while watching The Night Stalker and The Night Strangler.

I honestly did not know that.

That’s quite the eclectic shift in cinematic genre. Impressive.

Anyone that limits themselves to one or two genres is doing themselves a great disservice by missing out on some truly amazing cinema (the previous vids notwithstanding).
