Preacher 209-09

Preacher
Episode 2.9 “Puzzle Piece”
Directed by Michael Dowse
Written by Craig Rosenberg
Created by Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen
Starring Dominic Cooper, Joe Gilgun, Ruth Negga, Graham McTavish, Tom Brooke, Ian Colletti, Julie Ann Emery
AMC
Air date: Monday, August 14th, 2017, 9pm

Last week on AMC’s Preacher, our three heroes continued to grow apart from one another and fall deeper into individual downward spirals. Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) is short 1% of his soul after using it to dispatch The Saint of Killers (Graham McTavish), and that has him ignorant to the obvious needs of those closest to him, his focus on finding God turning into obsession. Tulip (Ruth Negga) is dealing with PTSD after her near death experience at the hands of the Saint, and her guard is lowered so much that when face to face with Lara Featherstone (Julie Ann Emery) of The Grail, she makes friends. Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) is tortured the harshest, perhaps. A vampire, who knows all too well the horrors of eternal life, is suffering through the choice of whether to save his dying son Denis (Ronald Guttman) with a bite, or let him die naturally. Tonight, with the three of them divided, The Grail moves into position to take out Jesse and Genesis.

Spoilers below for last night’s episode of Preacher!

Last week on AMC’s Preacher, the gang hit Bourbon Street in the jazz capital of the world looking for God. Jesse (Dominic Cooper) was left alone and getting frustrated when he got a tip to check out a lounge act, a sultry blonde named Lara Featherstone (Julie Ann Emery). Her attempts to flee Jesse land her in hot water as she’s kidnapped by a crew of white-clad thugs. Jesse uses the combination of Genesis and kickass fighting skills to rescue her, though we find out later, there is more to Lara than meets the eye. The real crux of last week’s episode was Tulip (Ruth Negga) and her anxiety at being back in New Orleans. She does NOT want to be there, her past is catching up to her, and at the end she has this cathartic moment where she seems to accept any fate coming her way. That fate is a goon squad sent by tonight’s titular baddie, Viktor.

Check out my review of tonight’s episode of Preacher below.

Preacher
Episode 1.5 “South Will Rise Again”
Directed by Michael Slovis
Written by Craig Rosenberg
Starring Dominic Cooper, Joe Gilgun, Ruth Negga, Lucy Griffiths, W. Earl Brown, Anatol Yusef, Tom Brooke, Ian Colletti, Jackie Earle Haley
AMC
Air date: Sunday, June 26th, 2016, 9pm

Last week we learned a bit about the complex relationship involving Preacher Jesse Custer and the head of O, M, & P, Odin Quincannon. Quincannon (Jackie Earle Haley) pretty much controls Annville to the point where he was quickly able to “bury” the story of the brothel girl who drowned in a sinkhole on his property. Jesse (Dominic Cooper) realized that the key to rebuilding the church audience was to get the most powerful people in town on board with the word of God, so he got everyone in with a raffle for a flatscreen, and then in front of everyone ordered Quincannon to “Serve God!” Of course, this worked because Jesse has a heavenly force inside him that can be used to command orders. We assume it’s heavenly because two cowboys claiming to be from Heaven are trying to get that force back. Jesse’s friend, the drunken Irish vampire Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) offered to help them, but he was wounded by Tulip (Ruth Negga) in a accidental bout of rage. When she took him to hospital she discovered he slithered off to the blood bank for a snack…

Relativity To Remake Jean Claude Van Damme ’80s Flick ‘Bloodsport’

Bloodsport Image

One of my personal favorite 1980s movies is Bloodsport, the Jean Claude Van Damme movie about Frank Dux, a martial artist who competed in a highly secretive, highly dangerous underground fighting tournament known as the Kumite. Basically MMA before anyone knew what MMA was. The movie is a quintessential ’80s action-fighting flick, and features one of the very best ’80s movie songs you’ll ever hear. What more could one ask for?

Now comes word that Relativity Media is getting ready to remake the movie, with a writer, director, premise, and filming plans already in place. And another one bites the dust.
