    Vin Diesel’s vs JCVD’s Facebook Pages

    Lightning vs. Feelings 2012 (click on image)

    Recently we were pleased the discover that some of our favorite action movie stars had facebook pages!  Steven Seagal, Chuck Norris, Van Damme, Vin Diesel, Dolph Lundgren…  And not only that, it seemed they updated them personally (well, except for Seagal, whose page sucks).  So, like the good fanboys we are, we had to LIKE every single one of them.

    The one that caught our eye, though, was Vin Diesel’s.  First of all, he calls it VINBOOK.  Not since trolling around Britney Spears’ myspace page have we seen so many white-vignetted inspirational JPG’s.  Contemplative, Introverted, Positive, Sentimental, Motivational, Vaguely Spiritual… he’s a dreamer with 6th grade level photoshop skills.  He’s got feelings.  At first, we thought it must have been made by a fan, but on his website we found the same cheesy (awesome) graphics.  BUT–you have to be a member to view them.  Moving on…

    At around the same time Vin Diesel posted his “I Believe in You” image today (above), Jean Claude Van Damme posted his “JCVD 2012 LIGHTNING WARRIOR” image, which is about a million times cooler, if it’s possible to calculate those kinds of things.  See how he is standing there, ready to fight? Vin Diesel’s image would be way better if he was holding two Uzi’s or being blown away from an explosion.

    SO, if Vin Diesel and Jean-Claude Van Damme’s facebook pages got in a fight, who would win?  We pick Van Damme, because Lightning beats Feelings.

    Is that really a Vin Diesel quote?

    Chucknology – Chuck Norris Kills Per Movie Graph

    Chucknology: Kills Per Movie
    In the Spring of 2006 we made our CHUCKNOLOGY: KILL COUNTS PER MOVIE graph and presented to a small gathering of friends at one of our first Bingo Nights.  We happened to watch CODE OF SILENCE (1985) that night, actually one of Chuck’s better movies.

    INTERPRETING THE GRAPH

    The chart follows Chuck Norris’ career from 1969-2005.  We broke the graph down by decade, facial hair status, and weapon of choice.  We analyzed kills with different styles of facial hair, kills by decade, kills per movie, and minutes between kills (by decade).

    INTERESTING INFORMATION ONE CAN GLEAN FROM THIS IMAGE

    1) As Norris’ facial hair thickened, so did the diameter of the barrel of his weapon of choice.  Naturally, as his weapon’s barrel increased, so did his kill count.  “As above, so below.”

    2) The 1970s saw him mostly with a mustache with his leg as his weapon of choice.  The 1980s got gratuitous, however.  This is when we saw him begin to wield automatic weapons.  I guess life really does begin at 40.

    3) After Norris hit 50 in 1990, he started with a bang with 29 kills in 1991’s THE HITMAN.  Then he began to mellow as he eased into network television popularity with eight season of Walker: Texas Ranger and a few quasi-spiritual direct-to-video movies.

    B-MOVIE BINGO: ANGEL OF FURY

    B-Movie Bingo: Angel of FuryANGEL OF FURY (1992)
    Showing Tuesday 2/7/2012 at The Hollywood Theatre

    Hell has no fury… like a security firm courier scorned!   International martial arts star Cynthia Rothrock is Nancy Bolan, whose sole mission is to deliver a top-secret computer for a large security organization.  Housed within a silver briefcase, the computer’s purpose is unknown.  Enter “Bolt” (aka “Zartan”), who is referred to as “The Terrorist Who Strikes Like Lightning“.  He also happens to be a master of disguise and a beefcake.  It turns out that he wants the computer too, and is hot on Nancy’s trail, intercepting her multiple ingenious, and yet failure-prone delivery attempts.  The venerable Peter O’Brian, best known for his career-defining roles as The Stabilizer and Rambu, chews up the scenery as Bolt, in his sixth and final film role before returning to his previous life as an English teacher.

    Rothrock is in top form as a tough, “I’m gonna kill you”, no-nonsense agent.  Things to watch out for include: a post-computer delivery failure shopping spree, Rothrock’s insane, indescribable kick from a dirt bike through a van’s windshield (and then back again), bizarre editing and dialogue, guys who don’t know how to hold guns, and Peter O’Brian’s face.  This movie is PURE BINGO!!!!

    One thing that we like about this movie is that the screenplay was written by Chris Mitchum, son of Robert Mitchum!

    Harry Potter and the Hendersons

    Harry Potter and the HendersonsWhen I made this, I was so proud.  “Harry Potter and the Hendersons”, I thought to myself as I put the finishing touches on the DVD spine, “how very clever.”
