.. That is the sound of inevitability... It is the sound of your death..
You have to let it all go. Fear, doubt, and disbelief. Free your mind.

Is this the best action movie cast....EVER?? Is the best action movie ....Ever?? I don't know, but I can't wait to find out. UFC Champ Randy Couture, Robert (T-Bag) Knepper and 'Oscar Winner' Forest Whitaker? are also in the cast.
I'm not sure if it's just a big wind up or if Stallone is continuing his 80's action revival. But it is the talk of the titnterweb and there are plenty not got a lot to say but I'm gonna record myself saying it and post it on Youtube fanboy videos out there.
Until 2o1o let us remind ourselves why we love the one liner action hero.

Rob Dougan is an artist that most of you will have heard of, or at least heard his music. He is most known for his work on The Matrix & Matrix Reloaded soundtrack. His work is heavily influenced by film in my eyes (and ears) and if I kept my CD cases I could confirm this fact. I urge you to track down his album, Furious Angels, especially the 2 CD version which has a instrumental version of the album. You see Rob D does sound a bit like Chris Rea when he sings and this is not for every ones taste.
All I know is that this is an album I keep revisiting, with many of the tracks reminding me I do have a heart. The track simply titled 'Instrumental' can even bring a tear to my eye.
As for the video, well Black Hawk Down is one of the greatest films ever made, and this music seems to fit. That's my Sunday afternoon gone then as I'll have to watch it now. Buy 'em both

I don't know how I did it, but missed every episode on TV
So thank the lord for Fopp & co and the boxset DVD
Cos this one has to be watched again, try it and you will see
Following the lives in song and dance of two guys from NZ
Jermaine & Bret write and sing the songs when they're feeling low
And Mel she is their stalker fan, the only one they know
Murray is their manager and he's the guy that steals the show
Even the New Zealand consulate looks like it's from thirty years ago
So thanks for Peter Jackson, Lucy Lawless, Sam Neil and New Zealand Lamb. Lord of the Rings, Bad Taste, The Frightners, Braindead and Meet The Feebles (Hell Yeah!). King Kong ok maybe not King Kong, Crowded House and Heavenly Creatures. The worlds Fastest Indian and where I want to live. We have a new New Zealand export to celebrate, The Flight of the Conchords are here!!'

To clarify some questions of late. My blog name came to me through my love of the work of Philip K. Dick. As I understand he had a recurring dream searching for a story called 'The Empire Never Ended', he never found it, and became convinced that if he did, he would go insane. It's that age old story, Boy meets Girl, Girl Meets Boy, Boy tries to get Girl, Girl says 'yikes', Boy looks for other Girl, Girl gets jea...well, it could go on and on.
And another thing, yep it's a movie blog. I will review the films as I watch them. And yeah I do watch that many. I found out a long time ago that Sleep is for wimps, and there's plenty of time to sleep at work anyway.
Why didn't I review many movies in October, well read my blog and you might learn something. I do other things to such high levels of geekdom as well you know. Cripes, you'll be asking why I watched so many tenuous linked Christmas movies in December next.
Yes this is a movie blog, but it's my movie blog and I'll review what is going on in my 360 head. It might not all be movies but then hell, get your own blog if you want to. I see movie influences in everything.
And as for the picture. Well that's really the reason for the rant. I liked it straight off. Got those movie influences sparkin' in my head. My thanks to Lauren for the model, although she less an orange and more a peach.
