Nope, Jesse Hibbs directed it. And yes, I liked Forsaken too. Donald and Kiefer Sutherland as father and son, Demi Moore in a very cool secondary role. Lone_Gringo wrote a short review. (I’ll never get used to Kiefer as a first name – it means “jaw [bone]” or “pine tree” in German.)
I didn’t rate Forsaken. Very ordinary, I thought. I was hoping for more I guess from what had previously been a fruitful partnership 'twixt Kiefer Sutherland and director Jon Cassar.
Would’ve been cool to have had Donald play Jack Bauer’s father Philip in season 6 of 24.
I’ve always thought it was a small insect, a kever in Dutch, but apparently that’s Käfer in German, I must have misunderstood the word when in Germany.
Yes, Käfer, a bug or a beetle.
JOSHUA (1976) - Flat and boring, this is really poor film making, Very annoying score as well. 4/10
Also a legendary car …
Yes, the Volkswagen. We called it a Kever too in Dutch. VW Kever.
Joshua over the years …
Heh, that was an entertaining summary.
Probably the only car I ever liked (I don’t have a driving license).
I have one, but I don’t like driving. But yes, I liked the sight of a Käfer too. I also light the sight of a Deux Chevaux, Citroën 2CV
Yes, of course, very nice. In Germany and Austria the 2 CV was nicknamed “Ente” (duck). Wikipedia tells me that a Dutch journalist came up with this moniker in 1948: “het lelijke eendje” or “de lelijke eend.”
Correct. “Lelijk” means ugly, in those days some thought the car was ugly. A Dutch author, Rudy Kousbroek, later wrote very positively about the 2CV in his book De archeologie van de auto. Eventually many people loved the 2CV, but the term lelijk eendje remained popular.
I thought the gunfights kicked a lot of ass, and the movie did its best not to become a cliche. Medium-rate effort but still entertaining to watch
Imagine that, her name just happens to be (Käfer) too.
EDIT: Very nice indeed Lone Gringo, but probably a bit strong for a site accessible to everyone, mate. Changed to a link instead - L.C.
Certainly no Lelijk Eendje (Ugly Duckling)
I watched Something Big with Dean Martin. I liked the first half but the second half was quite boring.
Sorry, L.C. I forgot that SWDB has a lot of 12 year old fans. Think i’ll go watch ( What’s New Pussycat ), addios!-L.G.
This post is now a great parody on the laws for the protection of the youth.
Who’s L.C. Lee Cleef?
