David Carradine – Sadly The Five Finger Death Punch got him

Posted by LiveFor on June 4, 2009

Really sad news. Bangkok’s KABC network has broken the news that kung fu icon David Carradine (Kill Bill) was found dead in a hotel room in Bangkok this morning.

Carradine was working on a new film in Thailand called Stretch. Initial reports suggested suicide by hanging but Carradine’s manager, Chuck Binder confirmed to Bangkok’s WABC network that he believed Carradine had died of natural causes.

However, Thai police told the BBC that hed was found by a hotel maid sitting in a wardrobe with a rope around his neck and body on Thursday morning.

“His death is shocking and sad. He was full of life, always wanting to work … a great person,” Chuck Binder said.

Carradine, who became famous in the 1970s when he starred as Kwai Chang Caine in the television series “Kung Fu,” was 72.

His career included more than 100 feature films, two dozen television movies and theater work. Carradine was last seen in this year’s release, Crank 2: High Voltage, where he played Poon Dong.

He was married five times and divorced four, is survived by his widow, Annie Bierman and four children.

There currently seem to be a few conflicting stories as to what exactly happened. I’d personally have loved it if he passed away while fighting off numerous ninjas while saving the hotel maid.

Whatever way you look at it another icon has passed away. What are your memories of the Kung Fu star?

Love N’ Dancing – Trailer for Amy Smart, Tom Malloy and the main man, Billy Zane’s latest film

Posted by LiveFor on April 16, 2009

Robert Iscove (“She’s All That,” “From Justin to Kelly”) directs the film written by Tom Malloy (“The Alphabet Killer“).

Five years ago: Jake Mitchell (Tom Malloy) is the defending World West Coast Swing Champion. He’s got everything going for him – looks, personality, and style. He’s at the top of his game when he and his partner Corinne (Nicola Royston) are crowned, for the second time, the unexpected winners at the World Swing Dance Championships.

As the crowd cheers and the celebration begins, Jake appears uneasy. Did he really deserve to win? The music blasts and the bass is thumping…but Jake hears none of it. He feels it. Jake is completely deaf, due to an ear infection when he was a teenager. He learned how to dance by feeling the vibrations of the music. Now he feels something else….that perhaps the judges gave him the win out of sympathy.

Present day: Jessica Donovan’s (AMY SMART) life is boring. When she was younger, she was a dancer who had dreams of Broadway. Now she’s an English teacher for disinterested, upper class middle school kids, and she’s dying to let loose. Her fiancé Kent (BILLY ZANE) is a workaholic who cares more about making money than making Jessica happy. At a friend’s wedding, Kent makes Jessica look foolish on the dance floor as another couple, arrogant because they’ve obviously been taking lessons, get all the applause.

Meanwhile, Jake Mitchell has moved on with his life, and now he’s a dance teacher who travels around the country doing motivational speaking to students about how his disability did not hold him back from achieving success. It’s at a school assembly where Jake and Jessica first meet. They have an instant connection…but there’s only one problem. Jake’s still in love with Corinne and perhaps always will be. And Corinne still knows exactly how to get under Jake’s skin; though she has a new fiancé and dancing partner, she drives Jake nuts with her flirtatious, competitive ways.

Jessica initially asks Jake to train her and Kent in West Coast Swing for their wedding, but Jake and Jessica are drawn closer when Kent’s non-stop job prevents him from going to the class. Jessica decides to continue taking lessons from Jake anyway…perhaps they can compete and (should be in) the World Championship of Swing in the Pro-Am division.

And they get better and better. They decide, at a dance party, to go for it all. Forget the Pro-Am; they want to try for the title that Jake felt he never deserved. But now the champions are all athletic 18 year olds who can defy gravity, and Jake is in his early thirties. To make matters worse, Corinne gets word that her old partner is in the game again, and what do you know…she’s interested in Jake again. Jake and Jessica must try to elude all obstacles, romantic and otherwise, to stay focused on the goal…winning the World Title, and winning each other.

Crank 2: High Voltage – I think you’ve got something on your forehead

Posted by LiveFor on March 23, 2009

I was just sent a link to this Crank 2: High Voltage related site. It is full of foul language and is pretty funny.

It is definitely not suitable for the young ones (even the site’s name is very wrong)

The site starts with “Remember that scene from Crank when **** popped up on Chav’s (Jason Statham) forehead?” Well now you can do it to a mate.

Check it out here.

Thanks to Marc for sending me the link.
