    Reading up on Hard Times, it's sad to read that Charles Bronson and Walter Hill had such a falling out after that film.

    Apparently Hill loved the guy and really wanted to work with him in the future, but Bronson refused every time.
    "All right, that's too hot. Anything we can do about that heat?"

    Jees. Iosos, what did you see in Extreme Prejudice? Other then a pretty good final shootout, and Powers Boothe doing his Powers Boothe thing, this was an awful mess for an hour. No buildup, no sense of pacing or direction, shit was just happening. Awful.

    Damn good filmmaker. It's too bad almost all of his movies flopped; he deserves more success than what he had, and I think more recognition as well. I hope he gets to make another movie, it would be a shame if The Assignment was his swan song.

    I've seen 10 of his movies. And some of The Long Riders and Hard Times. I like his work quite a bit.
    Blog!

    I really don't care anymore
    About all the Jim-Jim's in this town
    And all the politicians makin' crazy sounds
    And everybody puttin' everybody else down
    And all the dead bodies piled up in mounds
