    So I watched Tread on Netflix last night. Pretty entertaining movie, even though the events are well known.

    It's a documentary about the guy living in a small Colorado town who concluded the City power structure was out to get him, so he bought a bulldozer and modified it into a Killdozer, then went on a rampage throughout town. The filmmakers were able to get interviews with many of the participants. That, coupled with actual news footage of the event, made it a pretty captivating watch.
    I have this on my list. Good to know they pulled it off. Thanks.

    • Mookie went and watched karate kid for the first time.

      was Elizabeth shue somebodies daughter? (Well obviously yah, but...)

      between this and cocktail those are two decent roles. And while mookie has no problem rolling a chubby, shue wasn’t exactly a Hollywood hottie.
      a legend and an out of work bum look a lot alike, daddy.

        I'd like to think I am responsible for this.

        Elizabeth Shue in Karate Kid looks exactly like my high school girlfriend. The whole point is she's not a hottie, she's a completely believable pretty girl in an 80s high school.


        I smell nice and I don't put out

        I don't know if you were in the target demo, but they nailed it with her casting.

        • I also thought she was adorable in adventures in babysitting and cocktail.

            1) If you want to see it see it in the theater. It wont be as good on TV I dont think...

            2) It is not a great film. It is 3/4 of a great film with 1/4 of it just being boring and or stupid. This is almost like someone trying to ape a Nolan film using all of his normal tropes and then taking it a step too far. It is very disjointed which I think is on purpose (temporal stories tend to be all over the place) but it just makes the film hard to follow and makes the ending rather unsatisfying. Since I dont have to pay for it I might try seeing it again knowing how it all plays out and see if it works better but as of now it is probably my least favorite film by him.

            (yes Kepler we all know)
            I'm hoping to go this week.

              Def cute. But again....

              kepler gets half credit. Mookie saw the cobra Kai thing on Netflix and realized if he does start that up he should have a base.

              certain the 35yr delay put mookie out of the demographic too!!

              interesting that Johnny dude is also the evil diving villain Chas in back to school. Those are two high profile roles for odd sports bad guys Mookie would bet there is no comparison in film to cover this.

                Are we sure he isn't on the frat team in Breaking Away?

                      • Trailer for the new Dune looks awesome.
                        What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

                          He had the perfect look. I can imagine every '80s teen movie director yelling into the phone, "GET ME BILLY ZAPKA!"

                          Fun fact: he is an Oscar nominee. For writing!

                          He sounds like he might be similar to Michael McKean.

                            I had a different experience. I loved it. From beginning to end. I didn't find any of it boring or stupid. There was a two tier "ending" so to speak. One tier was fantastic the other was, kind of meh.

                            I loved it though. Very cool movie.

                            • Yeah the ending is kind of part of why I think if I see it again I might have a different view. I also feel like if I had 20 friends that saw it and discussed it ad nauseum I would feel different as well. I think for me this is the type of movie I need to think about and dissect.
