I know this is an 80s film, but a lot of people growing in the 90s might also remember it. Also, holly fucking hell, this poster is fucking AWESOME. I want one.
Easter Egg of the Day: So it turns out that, if arranged in chronological order, the McBain movie clips shown on The Simpsons form a four-minute excerpt from an action film in which McBain “hunts corrupt drug kingpin Senator Mendoza and tries to exact revenge for his murdered partner while battling red tape at police headquarters.”
….That…. is so… fucking… cool!
I almost hate to say it, but this game looks like it may possibly become the first movie-to-videogame adaptations that is worth playing. Who knows, maybe it’ll be epic. It sure looks it. What do you think?
- Badger: In summation, I think you just got to not do it, man. That's all.
- Mr. Fox: I understand what you're saying, and your comments are valuable, but I'm gonna ignore your advice.
- Badger: The cuss you are.
- Mr. Fox: The cuss am I? Are you cussing with me?
- Badger: No, you cussing with me?
- Mr. Fox: Don't cussing point at me!
- Badger: If you're gonna cuss with somebody, you're not gonna cuss with me, you little cuss!
- Mr. Fox: You're not gonna cuss with me!
- Badger: (snarls)
- Mr. Fox: (snarls) ... Just buy the tree.
- Badger: Okay.
I’ll admit, I’ve never been much of a fan of Anime. Cowboy Bebop is a huge exception, however. One of the main draws of the series and biggest contributor to its success in the Western world is the predominantly western feel to the series — that is to say, for a Japanese anime, it doesn’t really come off that way. The music for Cowboy Bebop is composed by Yoko Kanno (who, prior to Cowboy Bebop, had no experience writing music outside classical Japanese) and performed by The Seatbelts and is mainly (but not limited to) a mix of jazz, country and rock. Ask DNA is the opening theme for the movie and is a great example of the western style of the series as a whole. The tune has an early rock feel, a sort of hybrid between Rock and Blues. It’s easily my personal favorite amongst all the tracks from Cowboy Bebop, though that’s not to say the rest of the songs aren’t great (really, they’re phenominal as well. The song itself is almost infectious, and is filled with catchy hooks; it’s, simply put, a very well put-together track.
