“This movie is the best movie I’ve seen in a long time! Coming from a military family and my husband being a Marine, this movie brought me to tears many times. Mark Wahlberg and the actual survivor who helped direct the film [have] done an amazing job, I can’t imagine how painful it had to be for him to relive this event and the loss of his brothers.” – Jenn B

Video of the Day: Breaking Bad Wrap Party Edition
From the AMC/Sony Breaking Bad Wrap Party in Albuquerque, New Mexico in March 2013.
For Mr. Alexander, crime was a business to be conducted with honor and respect. But, like the saying goes, “there is no honor among thieves.” And when that honor is challenged and tested, much more than a reputation is at stake! With guns a-blazing, Anchor Bay Films announces the December 17th release of Force of Execution, starring action legends Steven Seagal (“True Justice,” Maximum Conviction, Machete), Ving Rhames (Pulp Fiction, the Mission: Impossible films), world champion martial arts superstar Bren Foster (Maximum Conviction) with Danny Trejo (Machete, Machete Kills, “Sons of Anarchy). Available for Blu-ray™ and DVD pre-order on November 20th.
From the production:
In the film directed by Keoni Waxman and written by Richard Beattie & Michael Black, Seagal stars as mob kingpin Mr. Alexander, an old-school boss who rules his criminal empire with both nobility and brutality. For a simple prison hit, he sends his best enforcer and protégé Roman Hurst (Foster). But when the hit goes wrong, Hurst is forced to pay the price of his “failure:” banishment in the city that he almost once ruled. But a war is brewing for the soul of the city between Alexander, a cold-blooded gangster known as ‘The Iceman” (Rhames), and a merciless Mexican cartel. Hurst, with the help of an ex-con restaurant owner (Trejo) who has a few hidden moves of his own, will rediscover his own will to survive the coming conflict…and to wreak vengeance on those who have wronged him.
The lines have been drawn in the sand. The fuse is lit. And in a citywide massacre measured in pain, fear, and revenge, the ultimate power belongs to the FORCE OF EXECUTION.
Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul literally took to the street to give some “Hollywood” tourists all the way from Ireland the thrill of a lifetime when he popped out to say hello to them in real life!
In the totally awesome visit Paul explains that his family is all out in CA for the Breaking Bad series finale screening! TOO COOL!
Privileged to have visited the Moriarty area shoot of this super cool New Mexico film! Lots of talented locals hold their own with these Hollywood heavyweights!
UPDATE 7/24/13: A few weeks after we first found a rough cut of this #NMFilm trailer an official version has just been screened at #SDCC as seen below:
The Banshee Chapter from Before the Door Productions, produced by Zachary Quinto, filmed in Albuquerque, New Mexico
Who knew Albuquerque had a Wall of Fame?
Well we do and courtesy of KOB Eyewitness News 4 here is your first inductee:
Long ago he was a science teacher on public television and a weatherman at KOB Eyewitness News 4. Now Dr. George Fischbeck is the first person honored with a plaque on Albuquerque’s brand new Wall of Fame.
“Hello my friends,” said the 90-year-old Fischbeck as he strolled straight up to a pack of TV news cameras at the Alvarado Transportation Center downtown. “Thumbs up! My friends, how are you? Everyone’s my friend!”
Dr. George still loves to be on TV, 20 years after retiring from KABC in Los Angeles. Fischbeck left Albuquerque for the big time back in 1972, but he still loves Albuquerque and Albuquerque loves him. He’s a born performer with a skullful of scientific knowledge. On KNME public television he was the best teacher many of us ever had. Monday was Albuquerque’s turn to honor Fischbeck, and Fischbeck’s turn to say thanks.
“One word: Opportunity,” Fischbeck said. “This town, this state, these people gave me an opportunity. Take an opportunity when it’s offered to you. You all have a chance to do something. You’ve got the opportunity? Grab it! Grab it and see what you can do with it!”
Dr. Fischbeck will throw out the first pitch at tomorrow night’s Isotopes game, and autograph copies of his autobiography, “My Life in Weather”.
As we told you here, Johnny Depp talked openly about his affinity for the horse who he said, “saved his life” by treading carefully after the star’s scary fall during the filming of The Lone Ranger.
At around the one minute mark (above) you can see Depp’s tumble and 25 foot drag, after which he pops-up like a champ, a champ with some pretty epic abs as the crew rushes to his side!
