As we were walking out of the movie “Inception,” despite our state of mental confusion and ringing ears, we DO recall women all around us asking “Who was that hot guy who played “Eames?” That guy who jumped off the screen into our daydreams was English actor Tom Hardy. (Perhaps the best thing about “Inception.”) And GUESS WHO was cast as the next Mad Max! Mel Gibson is OUT and Tom Hardy is IN. The new Mad Max script aroused the interest of many leading men in Hollywood, including Jeremy Renner. (Back in the 80’s, Mad Max had a huge fashion influence and nightclubs were full of the post-apocalyptic look) Twenty-five years later, Mad Max 4 and Mad Max 5 will be filmed back to back starring Hardy, along with Charlize Theron and Zoe Kravitz.

    I wish Hollyweird would come up with The New Movie Plot. Geez…

    Yes, Frank, I second that emotion! Where have all the writers gone? I mean, have all the stories actually been DONE and so they are just going back to the beginning and starting over again with the same ones? First “A Streetcare Named Desire” now “Mad Max”. It’s really getting OLD!

    No one can ever replace Mel Gibson as Max Maxx–that’s an iconic role.

    Reta, do you realize you’re replying to Gerard, Strom, Captain America? as in Frank?
    I thought you had some standards to uphold!

    We are reaching a point where very view people are capable of actually doing anything productive and reliable. It is a shame that it is most obvious, and most complained about, with regards to entertainment. Product quality control is down the tubes, and the average person is incapable of obeying basic traffic laws, but hey, more importantly, there are no original movie script being produced. The horror! The horror!

    Hollywood is lame. Stop with the remakes. Charlize Theron in Mad Max??? Is this a joke?

  6. By SebastianCanada

    What, is Charlize supposed to be booked at the Old Vic for that time frame?

    The remakes is all that Hollywood can do, there’s isn’t an idea that someone thought on their own. All just copying the previous generation’s work.

    More Mad Maxes? Really? Didn’t we learn anything from Thunderdome? DO NOT WANT!

    Whatever his shortcomings, Mel Gibson at the very least has a great face. This new guy, not at all. Side by side, Mel looks like a leading man movie star; this new guy looks like someone who would be changing oil at a Jiffy Lube.

    I think whenever Captain America points out a fag or sissy-boy, it is because he lurrrrrves him.

    I just noticed something about Janet’s post. She says that Mad Max influenced fashion, and that the post-apocalyptic look appeared in clubs after the movies release. Uhmmm…Huh?

    Maybe the movie did have an influence, but it was a transmitter of a trend that was well on the way long before the movie went into production. Remember Punk, Vivienne Westwood, and Westwood’s shop Sex? Since the mid-seventies a post-apocalyptic look was developing, which, by the early eighties, had spawn several sub-categories.

    The claim that Mad Max created the trend is fallacious, just like the claim that Madge created to pop tart look of her early career.

  13. By Reta

    Sebastian, you are dead right again. The idea that Mel’s stupid movie created a trend is insane!

    Bettye No, I don’t think that Frank even comes close to the utter idiocy that is Cap’n Asshole. Every now and then we get this theory by someone but sorry guys, Cap’n Crazy is NOT Strom, Frank,etc. you can tell by this: Cap’n Crazy is so illiterate he sticks to 1 or 2 sentences at the most, while Strom actually completes a thought coherently (however madly). Also Cap’n Crazy has issues with America for some odd reason and that is his second bashing.

    His REAL NAME is Gerard Vandenburg and he used it many many long long months ago going way back, when I first started coming here. And I could always tell when he switched over to this “Captain” crap that it was still the same “person” because he says “folks” a lot too.

    I picture him as a fat balding sweaty half naked masturbating illiterate dunce with what teeth he does have left are quite yellowed and covered in the dog food he steals from his neighbor’s front porch. He lives in England, and somehow considers himself superior to Americans and hates everything about us, but yet he trolls an “American” gossip site. Go figure.

    He craves big black dick but he realizes he can never get one because of his nasty appearance and so he verbally rants against the very thing he loves out of jealous desperation. He used to have cats, but even they have left him because they could no longer stand the stench of his body odor.
    He doesn’t wear shoes anymore because his long thick wood-like yellow fungus-nails curl around his callused crumbling toes in curlicues and are so thick they can’t be cut. He has thick wads of blubbery flesh ringing his neck, with so many old layers of stale flesh and dirt in the deep creases that he could literally pull it out in clumps if he tried to, but he won’t make the effort.

    He must sleep sitting up because the blubber crushes his breathing, and he always sleeps with his tiny uncircumcised and piss reeking penis in his hand in case he dreams of big black dick in the night and becomes aroused in his sleep. He pretends to hate gays and blacks because he is so self loathing, but too low IQ to realize it or figure out a way to commit suicide, so he just continues to masturbate and swallow EVERYTHING he can get into his meaty fists while he does the slow burn.
    Sleep fitfully Cap’n Crazy/Gerard Vandenburg, and may you be raped by a giant very black cock real soon!

    Reta, interesting.

    I have not visited this site long enough to ponder the Captain, only to be annoyed by him. I had however noticed that while, on the one hand he speaks homophobia like a redneck neoCon, he does also seem – unbelievably – anti-American (on top of making anti-American comments, he has never gone after me for criticizing the U.S., only for saying things that suggest I am a “FAGGOT”). He is an A-one tool, who, unfortunately, I often found amusing.

    The Captain is definitely a mystery wrapped in an enema.

  15. By Sally
    On July 23, 2010 at

    The captain needs friends besides the ones who whisper provocations in his ear.

  16. By Reta
    On July 23, 2010 at

    Let’s call him who he is and drop the pretense he hides behind: Gerard Vandenberg I’m QUITE sure has no friends, and I am equally sure whatever family he HAS had deserted him by now thanks to his vile hatred and jealousy of all things he wishes to be.

    Yes, Sebastian, his very favorite word happens to be “faggot”, and I’m sure it’s because he drools in his sleep over the big black cocks he WISHES he could get but who will have nothing to do with him because of the sleaze that he really is, so he takes out his passive aggressive pitiful existance on the young healthy lucious men he so wishes he could taste but will never get.

    And Sally, FRIENDS? REALLY??? He wouldn’t know a friend if it walked right up to him and pointed out where his tiny dick is hiding to him. But, not to worry, no one could get close enough to the hulking mound of stewing flesh for that to happen, so he just has to keep routing around for it himself in the dank fold of flesh formerly known as his stomach. He may find the tiny part someday, with any luck, hopefully by the time the crew shows up to chop him out of his abode. And by then all the neighbors will be lucky enough to meet dear Gerard Vandenburg aka Cap’n Asshole, and they’ll be waving American flags as they drag the huge piece of plywood with his carcass on it past and over the curb to the waiting dumptruck which is the only vehicle they will be able to find to fit him, which is fine, because he’s trash anyway so when they get there they can just raise the thing up and dump him out in a big reeking pile of human dung on the sidewalk in front of the hospital where he will remain like a melted puddle of a group orgy in progress, but it’ll really only be Gerard, doing himself with his tiny pee pee as usual while he fantacizes about sucking off faggots.

    the captain is from europe and most likely english is his second language

  18. By SebastianCanada

    From Europe eh? A European arch-villain. Is he Belgian? Welsh? Someone call Austin Powers!

    cyber trolls love to “attempt to” change up their wording (to throw others off), but captain, storm and frank are one in the same.

  20. By Reta
    On July 24, 2010 at

    tittles: nice theory, but your dear Cap’n isn’t intelligent enough to pull that off. When he went from Gerard Vandenburg to this new moniker Captain America I figured out who he was immediately by the moronic sentences he attemts to string together. He cannot hide his identity, I would know if Frank or Strom were Gerard. Believe me, it’s not him. Cap’n asshole is much more disturbed than any other person who comes here, THAT I know. He proves it every time he attempts to say something.

  21. By SebastianCanada
    On July 24, 2010 at

    I agree Reta. I am am certainly sure that Strom is not the Captain. Strom may have some loathsome political views, but he is not the mindless homophobe the Captain is.

  22. By Reta
    On July 24, 2010 at

    Sebastian, Gerard Vandenburg aka Cap’n Asshole IS the most illiterate person on this site. Strom is much more intelligent and the other suspects follow close behind him. But Gerard is in a league of his own and proudly puffs his chest out in satisfaction at what he THINKS he’s saying… but we all know who he is, so there’s no hiding Gerard Asshole, you’ve been unmasked, so you can roll into the light now, better yet, stay in the closet where you have been for years and continue to play with your tiny pee pee when you can find the very tip of it that is…

    Jane was absolutely correct in her assessment. Whatever Mel Gibson turned into he was a major major movie star in his heyday. Let’s face it Mad Max became popular because he was extremely good looking.

After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
