Yeah it’s really bad, the only movie I’ve seen worse is that one with Ryan Reynolds where he’s buried alive and you think the movie will get better but it’s just him in a coffin the whole time.

That movie fucked me up. I felt physically sick after it ended. Horrific

I've never seen it because it looks dull as fuck, glad I didn't miss anything. I love Sci fi and douchey films and I still won't watch it. 

this ^

I can't even remember now where I was discussing movies...Tom's movies I mean. I think someone suggested this to me but warned me not to watch it at night cuz it requires attention. Didn't realize it required interest too. lol I'm joking. I mean, I probably shouldn't prejudge. Folks were wrong about California album. I love that one!

Another one I thought was similar to Buried is Phone Booth. It's just in a different setting that's all. I liked how that whole movie took place inside of a phone booth, although it showed a few scenes outside of the phone booth as well.

I've always liked those kinda films that take place in one setting. They don't even have to be stuck in places like that for me to like it either, it can be in buildings as well. Reservoir Dogs was another one with way more characters (although the story is completely different as they're not actually stuck there and being held hostage, they're hiding out and becoming suspicious of each other). Speed is another one too, just it all happens on a bus. Obviously those two movies have some scenes outside of the main setting but you get what I mean haha.

I actually once had an idea of a guy being stuck on a toilet for a whole movie, where if he moves then some kinda bomb explodes. But then i realised they actually did that scene in one of the Lethal Weapon movies.

If it were this scene?? (oh hell yea! lol)

oh, and I guess I never saw Lethal Weapon.

 

Loved Phone Booth tho! Yeah, is it weird to like that it was in just one location? lol

Phone Booth is great. Love that movie.

The image or video didn't pop up! This is the toilet bomb scene in Lethal Weapon though. If you like classic 80's and 90's action movies, then you'll probably like this. Think it was Lethal Weapon that put the buddy cop type movies on the map as well.

I dunno, post 2007 has seen some solid stuff from Tom, Dogs Eating Dogs, most of Neighborhoods, I-Empire, and The Dreamwalker all have some really good Tom content.

But then he's also released some crap in that time too both LOVE albums are garbage, his demos odds and ends album sucks, most of the AAA EPs have sucked balls, the Love movie was forgettable and boring (I genuinely almost forgot that even existed), and I haven't read any of his books or graphic novels, but I can say with certainty that I don't have any interest in them, and I say that as someone who is absolutely interested in the idea of aliens and alien tech.

The thing that pissed me off most about those was he really only needed one. There was no real reason for him to do two albums other than to delay working on Blink. I could easily find 10 songs between both albums that would of made for one solid album.

Yeah I agree with this. There's so much filler crap on both albums. All he had to do was focus more on the better songs or songs with more potential like Saturday Love, Surrender, Flight of Apollo, Some Origins of Fire and All That We Are (first half of this song is shite but as soon as the guitars kick in, fucking hell, such a good ending).

Every song on the album has good ideas but nearly all of them just sound rushed and feel like filler tracks to me.

On top of the design being questionable, it's not even very good technically (the lettering seems off and the shading is weak). A big old yikes.

This is my biggest thing.  Why can't these rich musicians/actors get GOOD artwork done?  They have the connections, the money, and yet they still choose to get tattoos from the guy on the corner who spends all day tattooing barbed wire, crosses and infinity signs on people.

I looked through the tattoo artist's instagram and she's not amazing or anything, but her work is decent. Tom probably brought in his own idea and wouldn't compromise.
