Other Movies Seen By This Director (0)
|06.25.06||Alamo Downtown|| Next up was this movie where one brother played an angst-ridden cop who likes wearing a Raiders sweatshirt and the other brother plays a wiseacre jewel thief. Circumstance forces them to become partners even though the cop brother is initially mad at the thief brother... crazy early-90s b-plots and bad acting ensues. It's funny though because James Doohan plays the captain and has a line "Sorry about my voice, I've been yelling at assholes all morning" that struck me as genuinely funny. What's that doing in here!?|
Anyway, this was a lot of fun... I won't call it good, but it was a lot of fun and the people in the theater were obviously fans.
Afterward, the second Q&A was awesome. I really didn't wake up this morning expecting to see one of the Barbarian brothers bust into an elongated a capella rap about the virtues of hemp tonight, but sure enough that's what happened. They also threw out random stories of one of their childhood friends' dads and how mean he was... and some stories about Gary Busey and Mr. T from DC Cab and lots of other casually hilarious stuff while we sat there in the audience and tried to think up questions so they didn't have to go. Once they stopped talking about the movies they seemed to finally open up and have a good time... it made for a really great Q&A.
So a nice reprieve from Elm street for a bit... watching some nostalgic 80s fun and seeing what those body building twin guys look like now (less bulky but still fit, wearing berets and other LA hippy garb, acting basically just like they do in The Barbarians)... Back to the dreams!
