Brisco County Junior

Cheesy 1800's western with excellent references to the future. (My personal favorite is the whole riff on the Blimp.) Bruce is excellently cast as the rugged, good-looking, heart-of-gold character. He says his horseback riding in Army of Darkness helped him get cast for this role, but this time he had to REALLY learn how to ride.

You may recognize the theme music the next time you watch the Olympics. (No. It's not the “Olympic” theme, but the theme NBC has been using for the past few.)

My favorite supporting character: Pete. (Watch for that actor later...)

The Hudsucker Proxy

A Coen brothers film. Enjoy!

Bruce plays a fast talking reporter who gets smacked around by an even faster talking female reporter. Short appearance but fun. And a great, great movie.

Sure, sure.

Army of Darkness----at last!

Yeah. I've been away for awhile. I'm sure my reader will be glad I'm back. (Thanks for your patience, mom!)

This movie best watched with a rowdy group who already know the lines a la “Rocky Horror”.....

A few snipets:

King: “Are all men from the future such loud-mouth braggarts?!?”

Ash: “Nope. Just me, baby. Just me.”

Ash: “THIS is my BOOMSTICK!” (etc., etc., etc.)

“It's a trick. Get an ax!”

“You ain't got but two things: Jack and shit. And Jack left town.”


I especially enjoyed the series of zoom shots when creating Ash's metal hand.

Oh, and pay attention to Ted Raimi's FOUR roles in this movie.

A delight and a half.
