    B-MOVIE BINGO: XXX

    XXX (2002)
    Showing Tuesday 12/4/2012 at The Hollywood Theatre

    In XXX, Vin Diesel takes us on a one-way trip to the “Xander Zone“, a place as likely to be found on a Corvette falling from a bridge as it is hidden in a secret Czech mountain base.  Diesel plays Xander Cage, an all around extreme sports guy and virtuoso cyber-criminal.  After an NSA agent, played by Samuel L Jackson, catches up with him, he’s given an ultimatum: join us or go to prison.  Yes, he’s that good: if Uncle Sam can’t have ’em, no one can.  Now a reluctant secret agent (an “even-his-shit-is-ripped”, tatted-up version of Bond), he is sent to Prague to stop an evil Cold War-obsessed madman from destroying the world.  While executing well-known world-saving techniques like water skiing on a rocket and snowboarding away from an avalanche he caused, he meets the love of his life, Dario Argento’s daughter, Asia.  XXX uses sports to save the world, and wins her heart in what we all know will wind up the elusive “Tropical Ending”.

    There’s so many awesome scenes in this movie.  Some favorites: 1) Vin Diesel jumping a dirt bike over a barn of exploding cocaine. 2) Xander, while perched high on a mountainside, spies bad guys on snowmobiles and causes an avalanche to take them out, as he rides the wave down on his snowboard (already mentioned, but worth re-telling).  3) All the scenes with Vin Diesel.  Directed by Rob Cohen.

    PRIZES!

    We have some great prizes this month: a hunky Vin Diesel poster, a bunch of glossy promo 8×10’s, and the Grand Prize: a replica Seinfeld script.

    Here’s a good example of a BLANK SQUARE from the movie XXX starring Vin Diesel.

    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?
