Lots of folks
Lots of folks
Mark Christopher Lawrence
And many many others....
Chuck Bartowski ( Zachary Levi )
Sarah Walker ( Yvonne Strahovski )
John Casey ( Adam Baldwin )
Morgan Grimes ( Joshua Gomez )
Ellie and Devon ( Sarah Lancaster and Ryan McPartlin )
Lester and Jeff ( Vik Sahay and Scott Krinsky )
Big Mike ( Mark Christopher Lawrence )
General Diane Beckman ( Bonita Friedericy )
The last episode of CHUCK aired last night ( January 27, 2012 ).
As usual, there were crybabies that didn't like the way the show ended. I feel the exact opposite.
I want to remind those folks of the following fact... CHUCK was NOT a soap opera.
I also want to remind those CANDY-ASSES that LIFE IS UNPREDICTABLE.
That's why the ending felt REAL and full of genuine emotion, and that's all there is to it.
The show aired for five seasons ( four of which were abbreviated ).
CHUCK was tons of thrilling tongue-in-cheek fun. It was also clever, and always managed to reinvent itself.
The characters were three-dimensional, and most important of all, the show had HEART.
I'm going to miss them....
Region one DVDs and BLU-RAYs of the first four seasons were released by WARNER BROS.
As I write this, there is NO release date for the season five DVD or BLU-RAY.

Rolf Garcia Puga
And many others....
Ali ( Marina Glezer )
Roman ( Facundo Espinosa )
Jacquie ( Camila Velasco )
Gordon - old man with glasses - ( Omar Musa )
Baxter - old man with beard - ( Omar Gioiosa )
Roman has been dumped by his girlfriend Jacquie. The guy she's dating now, is called Rubio. Jacquie met him on the internet.
Roman's gut is telling him there's something wrong. So Roman, and his female friend Ali, decide to investigate. The trail leads them to an old house on a busy street.
Ali uses her laptop, and manages to make a date with Rubio, the same guy that's now dating Jacquie. So she marches into the house and disappears.
Meanwhile, Roman helps a nice elderly man cross the street. That man just happens to live in the same building that Ali walked into.
The elderly man's name is Gordon, and he lives with his lifelong friend Baxter. These seemingly gentle old men, are actually two former members of the government's DEATH SQUAD - called the AAA - that terrorized Argentina during the DIRTY WAR era.
Gordon and Baxter are PURE EVIL.
The two fun-loving-geezers are reliving the "good old days", by torturing and conducting experiments on a new generation.
Roman breaks into the house to search for Ali and Jacquie. The three of them find themselves in an explosive situation.
The two depraved old bastards may have finally met their match. Because Roman, Ali, and Jacquie are NOT giving up withOUT a fight.
QUOTES: ( TRANSLATED BY YOURS TRULY )
Roman: "She just left me, with no explanation whatsoever"
Gordon: "Nobody respects anything"
Baxter: "Nobody said you could speak"
Ali: "If you can read this, kiss me"
Gordon: "My generation always had lots of hypocrites, that talked about freedom, and all of you are their offspring"... "However, none of you knows anything. You're all a bastion of ignorance. Each new generation sinks further into ignorance"... "If you can't speak with respect, if you can't express what you want, then you have no freedom"
Jacquie: "Is that the best idea you can come up with?"
Roman: "I can't believe this, I have over 800 friends!"
Gordon: "INTRUDERS!.. INTRUDERS!"
Ali: "What's your plan now?"

DO I WANT MY MONEY BACK?:
I LOVE this movie!... I love the concept, the camera work, the acting, and the special effects.
An incredible performance by Omar Musa ( Gordon, the old man with glasses ).
COLD SWEAT a breath of fresh air!
This movie is NOT "business as usual"... Mr. Bogliano has made something truly special.
I can NOT begin to express, how happy I was, that this wasn't another vampire or zombie flick.
Take some of the tension from the television show called 24, add some graphic violence from an Eli Roth movie, and sprinkle a dash of cannibalism, and you end up with an intense and incredibly fun movie.
There's also some humor in the movie, such as a funny moment involving the fallacy of "online friends" ( FACEBOOK ).
SUDOR FRIO - AKA COLD SWEAT - was released on region one DVD by DARK SKY FILMS... and IF they ever answer my email, I'll purchase the movie.
CAUTION, RANTS AHEAD!....
As I stated before, the two elderly "gentlemen" are actually former members of the government's DEATH SQUAD.
During the opening credits of the movie, there's old footage of protesters and torture victims, and yet, far too many MORONS still can't make the connection between the two elderly "gentlemen" and that footage.
There is NO excuse for this kind of stupidity and ignorance.
Quotes below are from the NATIONAL SECURITY ARCHIVE:
"In 1976, the Argentine military launched a major counterinsurgency campaign. By the end of the year, thousands would be illegally detained, tortured, assassinated or disappeared. Among the victims that year, there were half a dozen American citizens"
Just for the record, I do NOT consider this to be a horror movie. I also do NOT consider P2, SHUTTLE, JOY RIDE, RED EYE, and RUBBER, to be "horror" movies. This is NOT a criticism of these movies, but it IS a criticism of all the moronic horror fanatics that love bashing movies like these.
When I read comments bashing this movie - by ignorant and narrow-minded "horror fanatics" - it reminds me of why the general populace still views most horror fans, comicbook nerds, and science fiction geeks, as mentally-deficient-deviants.
Most of these "horror fanatic" douche-bags would enthusiastically eat George Romero's shit, if it were served to them on a platter.... What does that tell you about their mentality?....

This post is dedicated to the MAYFAIR THEATER ( AKA PUSSYCAT THEATER ), that used to reside in the city of San Buenaventura ( California - U.S.A. ). I REFUSE to call the city by it's truncated name of Ventura!
I have fond memories of this building, and many other Southern California movie theaters.
SOURCE: UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA LOS ANGELES WEBSITE
The great S. Charles Lee was the architect.
Anyway, I recently found out it was demolished in 2004.
It's replacement is a fucking eyesore. If you think squirrel shit on a rotting bagel - that has been pissed on by an old drag queen - qualifies as beautiful, then you should find the new building aesthetically pleasing.
In other words, the new building is the equivalent of ARCHITECTURAL DIARRHEA!
The folks that allowed the MAYFAIR to be destroyed, should be fucking ashamed of themselves! I'm sure they probably feel about as much shame as a school of piranha does after they devour their prey....
QUOTES FROM THE LOS ANGELES TIMES ( DENISE HAMILTON - AUGUST 3, 1989 )
"Movie House Says Adios to Sex Fare"
"Gone is the infamous Pussycat Theater, with its salacious titles and often furtive customers. Last month, the owners of the downtown Ventura theater took the movie-audience pulse and decided that Spanish-language films would draw better than X-rated ones"
"Enter Marilyn Chambers"
"In the mid-l970s, the Mayfair became the Pussycat"
"From his vantage point across the street, Eskin recalls that porn star Marilyn Chambers, who starred in such adult classics as "Behind the Green Door" and "Insatiable" once made a personal appearance at the Pussycat when one of her films opened in Ventura"
MY REACTION: apparently, local religious fanatics tried to take credit for the demise of the PUSSYCAT. Nothing could be further from the truth! An invention called the VCR killed the PUSSYCAT version of the MAYFAIR. It also killed the ART HOUSE and Hispanic versions of this theater.
Plus, those BIG MULTI-SCREEN theaters put the final nails in the MAYFAIR'S coffin. The same way most independent books stores were put out of business by the big chains like BARNES & NOBLE.
Don't know what else to say....
