Tremors – Now you can get the Graboids in this Flash game

Posted by LiveFor on April 5, 2010


Tremors is one of my fave films. A classic B Movie. Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward are just a great double act.

Now there is a little Flash game where you can bounce around avoiding those pesky sand worms.

Play the game.

Youth in Revolt – Michael Cera gets his Tyler Durden

Posted by LiveFor on August 22, 2009

youthinrevoltAt last Michael Cera shows he can act differently in his new film, Youth in Revolt. I do like Cera but was getting a bit fed up with his seemingly similar style in each film. Now this one shows quite a different style (watch the trailer and you’ll get the Durden reference).

Directed by Miguel Arteta (The Good Girl), Cera plays Nick Twisp a 16-year-old who desperately wants his “dream girl,” Sheeni Saunders (Portia Doubleday), to notice him.

The film is based on the book “Youth in Revolt: The Journals of Nick Twisp,” which contains the first three parts of a six-part saga. The film co-stars Zach Galifianakis, Justin Long, Ray Liotta, Steve Buscemi, Fred Ward, Ari Graynor, and Jean Smart. It is due out on 30th October.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Remo is coming back. He’s still Unarmed and Dangerous.

Posted by LiveFor on July 9, 2009


Producers Charles Roven (The Dark Knight)and Steve Chasman (Transporter) are teaming up to produce The Destroyer. This is the hopefully the first of a franchise that brings back ’80s action hero Remo Williams.

Warren Murphy and Richard Sapir wrote the initial batch of “Destroyer” adventure tomes, which centered on Williams, a New Jersey cop convicted of a crime he didn’t commit. Williams is sentenced to the electric chair, but his death is faked so he can be reborn as the vigilante character the Destroyer, joining a top-secret assassin squad set up by the government to operate outside the bounds of the law.

With the help of an Asian assassin named Chiun, Williams also then wreaks havoc on the criminal underworld as well as on those who framed him.

Like me, you probably know of the character through the film Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins that came out from Orion in 1985. It starred Fred Ward as Remo Williams and I loved it. Lots of martial arts training, fights, and it was funny.

Murphy and Sapir wrote scores of Destroyer paperbacks in the 1970s and ’80s, with other writers eventually taking over scribe duties. New installments of the series — more than 100 have been written all told — continue through this decade.

So many books and I haven’t read any of them. Think I’ll have to get hold of some.

Armored – Matt Dillon, Jean Reno, and Laurence Fishburne have a plan to make some money

Posted by LiveFor on April 16, 2009

A crew of officers at an armored transport security firm risk their lives when they embark on the ultimate heist….against their own company. Armed with a seemingly fool-proof plan, the men plan on making off with a fortune with harm to none. But when an unexpected witness interferes, the plan quickly unravels and all bets are off.

Starring Matt Dillon, Jean Reno, Laurence Fishburne, Amaury Nolasco (who is currently filming The Rum Diary with Johnny Depp in Puerto Rico), Fred Ward, Skeet Ulrich, Columbus Short (who is down to star in the adaption of The Losers) and Milo Ventimiglia it certainly has got some big name action stars in there.

Always good to see Fred Ward. I loved him in Tremors and Remo: Unarmed and Dangerous (Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins if you live in the USA).

Armored (keep wanting to type Armoured) is directed by Nimród Antal who, not only sharing a name with a mutant killing robot from the X-Men comics, also made Vacancy.
Collider had the poster and photos and Trailer Addict had the trailer. Watching it this looks like it will be of the old school variety and there’s nothing wrong with a bit of old school action now and again.
