Holy Crap! Robert Downey, Jr. is Ironman!!!














"It is true. Robert Downey Jr. is Tony Stark. I am about as excited as I can be. I saw what he can do and he is extremely enthusiastic about playing Stark. I can say with absolute certainty that there is no better choice. The humor and emotional dimension he brings truly raises the bar on this project. Get ready."


-Director Jon Favreau
from his myspace group HERE




This is not the way I would have gone,
as I said back in THIS post, I was thinking Billy Crudup.

None the less, Robert Downey, Jr. is one of the finest actors walking on this Earth
and nobody knows about addiction more than he does, so watch out for the "Demon in a Bottle" story arc that will probably be in Ironman 2: Leaving Las Vegas!!

Robert Downey, Jr. certainly doesn't scream,
macho Italian billionaire and he ain't that young anymore,
but the man was Chaplin!! Chaplin!!

This is a very Michael Keaten/Batman type of move and I wish Director Jon Favreau all the luck in the world.

AINTITCOOLNEWS has the exclusive story:

Brace yourselves for what happens when someone makes the right choice for once.

Tony Stark will be played by
Robert Downey, Jr.

I can’t even express how much I love that choice. First of all, congratulations to Paramount and Marvel for having the nerve to pin their franchise on Downey. He’s had some rough years, but if I’ve ever seen anyone aggressively work to rehab their career, it’s Downey.

Even in his darkest days, he was
doing good work, but lately he seems more in touch than ever with what makes him great as a performer. He’s excellent with comedy, and he can break an audience’s heart with ease. Rare combination. And when the franchise finally gets into some of Tony Stark’s darkest hours, when he faces down his own demons in the second film or the third, can you imagine how much soul Downey can bring to it? If handled right, that’s some of the most potent dramatic material in any Marvel movie, and now they’ve got the right actor to make it all work.


As an added Bonus, I dropped in some designs for Ironman that didn't get Favreau 's approval.


Okay Tony's in there somewhere, I can see it.

I knew it! The Game Is Better Than The Movie!!!

As I stated back in THIS post, this game looks so damn good, that the movie may not be able to compete. I don't play video games.... except Spider-man 2, which is a transcendental experience. If you don't believe me, just play it... It is not a game, it's virtual webslinging like it just exploded out of the comics.

This Game looks like the next step up.
Grand Theft Superman!
Running at superspeed, approaching giant killer robots from above, throwing villians miles into the air!
All while you are moving through a to scale city of Metropolis.

Take a Look!!


Much more exciting than growing kryptonite real estate.

Spaceballs The Animated Series...um No.

In the post Ren & Stimpy world of pseudo sarcastic talking milkshakes and meatwads do we really have need of the Shwartz?

I suppose Mr. Brooks is revamping past works as he has so successfully done with "The Producers." Why not a "Young Frankenstien Transalvainian Style Plastic Surgery" franchise or a "Blazing Saddles All You Can Eat Bean Buffet" chain?

Will Spaceballs work Today? Sadly, while Mel is truly a genius, a poorly done carton will only dilute his library of funny. I would rather leave "Spaceballs" in the 80's where it is timely and fun. The "Space Spoof" is now a tired standard heap of SNL and MADTV sketches along with the obligatory "Star Trek" Captain Kirk parody that every sarcastic cartoon has done since Ren & Stimpy perfected it in the 90's with "Space Madness" to the unfortunate and yet somehow charming rehash of "Duck Dodgers" that ran on Cartoon Network. On top of all that, "Futurama," the ultimate Sci-Fi cartoon parody show, is back from the dead, in all it's brilliance, with new episodes on the way. "Spaceballs" may have been a fresh idea in 1987, but it's been picked over and over in the past twenty years.

The truth is, I don't think "Spaceballs" holds a candle to
"Young Frankenstien" or "Blazing Saddles." There is this running theory among my friends, that the first Mel Brooks movie you see is your favorite. For me it's true. Nothing is as funny as "Blazing Saddles," but then again, Mel wrote that with Richard Pryor. (They said you was hung!! ...And they was Right!! --You think Mel wrote that?)

Some one should send Mel some Futurama DVDs and let him know how high the bar has been set. I would, but I'll be busy watching the new and even better season of "The Venture Bros."


Brooks aiding animated 'Spaceballs' series
LOS ANGELES, Sept. 20 (UPI)

-- Legendary director Mel Brooks has begun working with three media companies to produce an animated U.S. TV series modeled after his film "Spaceballs."

The 80-year-old film director is working with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc., Berliner Film Companie GmbH and the G4 television network, Brooksfilms Limited, to produce "Spaceballs -- The Animated Series" based on his 1987 "Star Wars" parody, said MGM.

"We are thrilled to be working with two legends of the entertainment industry, Mel Brooks and MGM, on this exciting new series." said Berliner exec Rainer Soehnlein. "The Brooks imagination combined with the creative possibilities of animation will definitely make for something brand new in TV comedy."

The series will reportedly follow the G4 network's goal of targeting the U.S. male 18-34 age demographic when its initial 13 half-hour episodes begin airing in fall 2007.


The film company said that like the comedic film, the new series will follow the adventures of its heroes Lone Star and Barf as they attempt to save Princess Vespa from the clutches of the evil Dark Helmet.


I agree with their reaction.

They would rather watch this.

X3, It's all in the Cut!



Want to get pissed off?
Now that X3 is coming out on DVD, Fox has released extended and deleted scenes that didn't make the Ratner, pack the opening weekend with as many shows a day as you can, 1 hour and 40 minutes (way too short) theatrical version.



Guess what? Not one shot doesn't play better extended. In fact, each shot plays much better. Whether it's just the added growl of Beast's first meeting with Logan or the much more kickass Storm and Wolverine electrocuting Juggernaut at the Grey house fight, every scene seems to have more life, more punch and more "Not Suck!".



(yes I know Juggie wouldn't be stopped by lightening, shut up Geekboy!
I'm talking film drama, action and pacing!
Go watch StarGate!!)



So... I'm mad as hell!!
This crappy thing was cut so badly, that all the punch was taken out?
Was it?
Hey Fox!!
What else are you hiding on the editing room floor?
Maybe all the character development? Maybe the Angel doing....something??
A bad movie is bad enough, but if this thing could have been good...that is a damn shame.

Ok Ratner, you just made my "SlapYou Around With A Turkey Leg In An Alleyway" List!!

What do you guys think?

300 Reasons to Renew My Faith...

UPDATED!!! WITH A BETTER TRAILER!!

Okay, I haven't been writing.... Yes, work has been busy. Yes, the summer fun is over and the comic book movies are hibernating.


Yes Michael Bay is making his Transformers movie and I guess, I have been focusing on other things, trying to ignore the sadness of Hollywood's dilution game and trying to be a "good sport" by playing "wait and see those darn robots in motion before I condemn." The truth is, with Spidey a year away, and every major genre film this year, barring "V for Vendetta," a let down of some sorts... I've been kind of tired of superheros and comic films.

Thank the Heavens for "The Venture Brothers," "It's Alway's Sunny in Philadelphia" and the barely better than anything else Marvel has done in animation series "Fantastic Four."

Oh and in case you didn't know, that show with the Bing guy from friends "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" or something like that? It's a great show, and it has just given Bing a new lease on a career.

Anyway, Frank Miller should make Alan Moore rethink the whole "making movies out of his projects" thing. Miller seems to be becoming a god in the moving picture, while Moore, who is miles above him in the comic book world (in my mind at least), has washed his hands of all movies made from his ideas. I think by attacking "V for Vendetta," based on his book of the same name, mostly because of his anger at producer Joel Silver's lies about him supporting the project, he has thrown that one worthwhile "baby" out with a swimming pool size amount of bath water. (the bath water would be, "From Hell," "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen," "Constantine," and "Swampthing")

The truth is simple. Frank Miller's work is being made into movies that seem to be reinterpret film by teaching film all the dramatic visual lessons of sequential art. Maybe that's because Miller is an artist as well as a writer. Maybe Robert Rodriguez changed his mind with "Sin City." "Sin City" changed the course of film, whether or not Hollywood knows it yet.

Alan, look at this trailer for "Frank Miller's 300." And tell me you don't think "hmmmmm, maybe 'Top Ten' or 'Promethia?"

"Watchmen?"

I know I just regained my faith the Comic Book Movies...

You will too..

CLICK HERE!!

"Based on the epic graphic novel by Frank Miller, 300 is a ferocious retelling of the ancient Battle of Thermopylae in which King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) and 300 Spartans fought to the death against Xerxes and his massive Persian army. Facing insurmountable odds, their valor and sacrifice inspire all of Greece to unite against their Persian enemy, drawing a line in the sand for democracy. The film brings Millerís (Sin City) acclaimed graphic novel to life by combining live action with virtual backgrounds that capture his distinct vision of this ancient historic tale."

This I need to see on the big screen!!

(or at least a bigger version, can you say QUICKTIME!!)

Whoa.....Bond?......Wow....


Not much to say about this, I don't think anyone knew what to expect from Daniel Craig as the new James Bond. I knew he was a very fine actor from "Layer Cake" and "Road to Perdition," but this trailer is really exciting...... REALLY.

I'm not saying it's a great film, who knows, I'm just saying that this trailer has put my butt in a theater seat first weekend (November 17th is opening day). It doesn't hurt that the new Spider-Man 3 trailer will debut before the film either.
Daniel Craig stars in "Casino Royale," take a look Here.

Donner Gets His Day!

Over at DVDActive.com (here) they have the full details on the November re-release of the Superman collection. This collection will include the reconstructed "Richard Donner Cut" of "Superman II." Donner, who directed "Superman" and most of what became "Superman II" was fired and replaced by Richard Lester, who had a more camp view and in my opinion, ruined the sequel, with unexplained powers, confusing cuts and dreadful diologue. Below, is the rundown on a few of the new editions that will be coming your way. If you want to know about Supergirl, Superman III and some of the other sad excuses for franchise building, check it out at DVDActive.com (here) .

Released: 28th November 2006


Further Details:
On November 28, in celebration of the year of Superman, Warner Home Video will release a host of DVDs, all starring the late Christopher Reeve in his landmark portrayal of the Man of Steel. Leading the way will be the long-awaited Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut ($24.98 SRP), directed by Donner and representing Superman II as it was originally conceived and intended to be filmed. An overwhelmingly requested title, the movie features Donner’s original footage, shot but never used before, including a never-before-seen beginning, a never-before-seen resolution, with 15 minutes of restored footage of Marlon Brando as Jor-El and much more. Other titles to be released include Superman: The Movie Four Disc Special Edition ($39.92 SRP) which features both the DVD debut of the 1978 theatrical version as well as the 2001 extended edition with commentary from director Richard Donner and Tom Mankiewicz, archival footage of additional scenes and screen tests. Richard Lester’s ever-popular Superman II will be available in a new Two-Disc Special Edition ($26.99 SRP) including a new featurette, vintage television specials and additional vault elements; and Superman III and IV Deluxe Editions ($19.97 SRP). Finally, The Christopher Reeve Superman Collection ($79.92 SRP) will be offered in an 8-disc boxed set including all the above (except Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut).

Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut (1980/2006)
Superman II will delight fans who, for years, have been imploring Warner Home Video via voluminous numbers of petitions, letters, phone calls and e-mails to release the Donner cut. In fact, Donner had already shot most of the Superman II footage during Superman: The Movie. But as production on the sequel continued, creative differences between the director and the film’s producers became irreconcilable and Donner left the project. Although Richard Lester was hired to finish production, he chose to make major changes to the film, leaving only vestiges of Donner’s original vision and concepts in the version of Superman II that was ultimately released to theaters. Now, nearly thirty years later, Warner Home Video is honored to grant the wishes of countless Superman fans. With this DVD release, Richard Donner has become the first director in history to be able to complete a film he left during production with nearly all his footage “in the can.” Adding back a substantial amount of that unused footage, the director has seen his original vision restored and brought to fruition. Most notably, the “Donner cut” restores the Marlon Brando role, filmed for, but not included in the final theatrical release version of Superman II. The legendary Brando’s performance as Jor-El has finally been restored in key scenes that amplify Superman lore and deepen the profound relationship between father and son.With so many other changes, large and small, including a variety of Lois Lane (Margot Kidder) schemes to unmask Clark Kent as Superman, this Superman II will prove to be an eye-opening experience and an important addition to film history.

* All new introduction by director Richard Donner
* Commentary by director Richard Donner and creative consultant Tom Mankiewicz
* New featurette Superman II: Restoring the Vision
* Additional scenes
* Subtitles: English, Français & Español (feature film only)


Superman: The Movie (1978/2001) Four-Disc Special Edition
A box-office smash, an Academy Award winner and a fan favorite since it first flew into theatres in December 1978, Superman: The Movie assembles a cast and creative contingent as only a big movie can. At its heart (just as in three sequels) is Christopher Reeve’s intelligent, affectionate portrayal of a most human Man of Steel. Watching Superman again isn’t just like being a kid again. It’s better. The movie’s legacy soared even higher when director Richard Donner revisited this beloved adventure 22 years later and integrated eight minutes into the film. Enjoy more footage of the Krypton Council, a glimpse of stars of prior Superman incarnations, more of Jor-El underscoring his son’s purpose on Earth and an extended sequence inside Lex Luthor’s gauntlet of doom. Reeve, Marlon Brando (Jor-El), Gene Hackman (Luthor) and Margot Kidder (Lois Lane) give indelible performances that fuel the film’s aura of legend.

Disc One

* Commentary by producer Pierre Spengler and executive producer Ilya Salkind
* Theatrical trailers
* TV spot

* Subtitles: English, Français & Español (feature film only)


Disc Two

Some of the 3rd and 4th discs seem a waste of time, I have all those
Fleischer Studio Superman cartoons. To me that seems like filler. I do love "Superman" and I am really excited to see the Donner version of "Superman II." If I feel anything from watching "Superman Returns," it's that I miss the Christopher Reeve movies all the more.

Smallville Ollie....a Teen Green Arrow?

Hey, I like Smallville. It is a guilty favorite. About a third of the episodes are really fantastic and the rest are filled with vampire sorority sisters, magical possessions by evil spirits, witches and even banished Kryptonians (actually, that was one of the good ones).

The Batman guest appearance from season three, had to be re-written because of Batman Begins, but the writers (Millar & Gough) have brought in a version of the flash and recently a beach boy version of Aquaman.

While Green Lantern would be a natural choice, DC/Warner may not be letting them touch Hal, John, Guy or Alan because of the icky Jack Black movie that may be secretly still in the works.
HERE!

So who do you call? Old Ollie!! Oliver Queen aka The Green Arrow!! Okay! I love
Green Arrow, but this looks like a huge step backward for the Superhero genre. Gander your eyes at this!!!!!

A great example of being lost in translation "Green Arrow" is not a very translatable character. He's basically an archer who wears.... uh.............. green. Sure, you can make him a badass, but this looks more like an episode of "Who Wants to Embarrass a Superhero."

Check out the full story Here an Here!

TV Guide's July 24 edition, has a BIG scoop -- that the DC Comics character of Oliver Queen, better known to fans as Green Arrow, will be making an appearance in Smallville for a story arc that will go for "at least seven episodes."

"He will start to form the nascent Justice League," Smallville executive producer Alfred Gough tells TV Guide in this week's issue. "He's trying to find like-minded people with special powers and put a more formal structure in place."


The article goes on to say that Clark will initially be wary of Green Arrow, much like he was when future characters such as the Flash or Aquaman showed up in previous seasons. "Ultimately Clark will see the value of what he is trying to do," Gough says. "But as he's gotten older, Clark has become more cautious. He will always be there to help out, but he doesn't want to be part of a formalized organization."

Justin Hartley, who played the role of AC/Aquaman in Millar & Gough's Aquaman pilot will be playing the role of Ollie.

TV Guide also reveals that Lois Lane will take a romantic interest in the emerald archer.
The article reveals that the Green Arrow costume is a challenge for Justin Hartley's agility. "The boots have four-inch lifts, so they're hard to walk in, let alone run in," he tells TV Guide. "It's a tough thing to pull off, but hopefully the camera angles will be done right, and you won't see me tripping all over the place."

Okay, I guess this will be one of the two thirds of the shows that suck. Too bad. Ollie wasn't just another teen in a badly designed costume, he was Comix's first raging, angry, liberal, who kicked ass and took the names of the corporate criminals.

Damn... I'm sure Warner Bros. doesn't want to do a movie about an activist superhero, which is why, he is appearing in all of his teen glory on the small screen.

Let's wiki us up some Ollie!! Here!

Green Arrow (Oliver Queen) is a DC Comics superhero. Created by Mort Weisinger and George Papp, he first appeared in More Fun Comics #73 (1941).

Dressed like Robin Hood, Green Arrow is an archer, who invents arrows with various special functions, such as a glue arrow, a net arrow, a boxing glove arrow, etc.

Throughout his first twenty-five years, Green Arrow was not a significant hero. But in the late 1960s, after he lost his fortune, writers gave him the unique role of streetwise crusader for the working class and the underprivileged. In 1970, he was paired with the more law-and-order-oriented hero Green Lantern in a groundbreaking, socially conscious comic book series. Since then, he has been popular among comic book fans and most writers have taken an urban, gritty approach to the character.

The Green Arrow character was inspired by a few different sources, including Edgar Wallace's The Green Archer (and the 1940 Columbia Pictures serial of the same name based on the novel), and Fawcett Publications' earlier archery-themed hero Golden Arrow. The Arrowcar was yellow in color and shaped reminiscent of the land-speed record holder of the 1920s, the British Golden Arrow. The name "Oliver Queen" likely alluded to Ellery Queen, a popular fictional detective (and mystery writer) of the time.

Green Arrow was also created as an archery-themed version of the earlier character Batman, as several similarities between the two characters can be spotted, especially in Green Arrow's earlier incarnation: Green Arrow had a teenaged sidekick named Speedy just as Batman has Robin; Green Arrow and Batman were/are both millionaire playboys in their secret identities; Green Arrow had an Arrowcar and an Arrowplane similar to Batman's Batmobile and Batplane; Green Arrow had the arrowcave while Batman had the batcave; Green Arrow was summoned by the Arrow-signal, just as Batman is summoned to police headquarters by the Bat-signal; in the Golden Age stories, Green Arrow had a clown-like archfoe named Bull's-Eye who was a thinly-disguised version of Batman's archfoe, the Joker. Some of these similarities have been explained in-continuity as inspired by a meeting between Green Arrow and Batman in their early careers, as Green Arrow looked toward Batman as an inspiration.


Neal Adams and Dennis O'Neil

In 1969 artist Neal Adams decided to update the character's visual appearance by giving him a goatee beard and costume of his own design. Inspired by Adams' redesign, writer Dennis O'Neil followed up on Green Arrow's new appearance by completely remaking the character's attitude in the pages of Justice League of America #79 (cover-dated November 1969), giving his personality a rougher edge like that of Marvel Comics' archery-themed hero Hawkeye. This revision was explained by having Oliver Queen lose his fortune and become an outspoken and strident advocate of the underprivileged in society and the political left wing. For instance, he once saved a child's dog playing in a railyard, but instead of feeling satisfaction, he brooded on the larger problem of how the poor child apparently had nowhere else in the city to play safely.

In short, he became a kind of superheroic hybrid between Robin Hood and Abbie Hoffman. In addition, the Green Arrow began a long running romantic relationship with Black Canary II (Dinah Lance). As a member of the Justice League, he became an argumentative figure who often acted as the team's political conscience.

In the early 1970s, he became a co-feature with Green Lantern in the latter's series in an acclaimed, but shortlived series of stories by O'Neil and Adams that dealt with various social and political issues in which Green Arrow spoke for the liberal argument (thus a voice for O'Neil himself) while Green Lantern was an establishment figure, half-heartedly serving the conservative viewpoint. Oliver Queen convinced Hal Jordan to see beyond his strict obedience to the Green Lantern Corps, to help those who were neglected or discriminated against. The duo embarked on a quest to find America, witnessing the corruption, racism, pollution, and overpopulation confronting the nation. Denny O'Neil even took on current events, such as the Manson Family cult murders, in issues #78-79 ("A Kind of Loving") where Black Canary falls briefly under the spell of a false prophet who advocates violence.

Later in the series, Oliver Queen would land a job as a newspaper columnist, which allowed him to articulate his political beliefs in a more public field. It was during this period that the most famous Green Arrow story of all time appeared, in Green Lantern #85-86, when it was revealed that Speedy was addicted to heroin. In his zeal to save America, Oliver Queen had failed in his personal responsibility to Roy Harper - who would overcome his addiction with the help of Black Canary. This story prompted a congratulatory letter from the mayor of New York, John V. Lindsay. Unfortunately, the series did not match commercial expectations because of its mature topics and it was cancelled with issue #89 (April-May 1972).

Mike Grell to Chuck Dixon

In 1987, the character was changed once more in Green Arrow: The Longbow Hunters, written and illustrated by Mike Grell, who had previous experience dating back to Green Arrow features in "The Flash." In this three-issue prestige format limited series, Green Arrow abandons gadget arrows and fights crime in Seattle, Washington, where he now lives with Black Canary (Dinah Laurel Lance). The series took on a more gritty, violent, and urban tone, befitting the series' mature audience label. While fighting drug runners, Oliver Queen encounters the enigmatic Japanese archer, Shado, whose family suffered in a World War II internment camp. While uncovering the connection between the drug operations and Shado's quest for vengeance, Green Arrow also kills a murderer to save Black Canary. This was the first time that he had deliberately killed someone. He could have disarmed the man, but in his rage over the torture (and implied rape) of Black Canary, he chose to kill him instead. This was the first of many that he would kill during Mike Grell's run. Shado and Green Arrow join forces against the criminals, later becoming occasional allies and, on one occasion when Oliver was injured and delirious, lovers.

Grell tried to redefine Oliver Queen as a realistic and flawed character, purging the series of any superhero characteristics. The Green Arrow series dealt largely with serial killers, terrorists, and street gangs, with Oliver Queen sometimes working with Seattle Police Lieutenant Anderson, who sometimes resents Green Arrow's penchant for vigilante justice. During one story-line, Green Arrow wounds a teenager with a paintball gun, thinking him a criminal. This near-tragedy forces a crisis intervention from Hal Jordan, who rallies his depressed friend. Another notable episode involves Oliver Queen's framing for a terrorist bombing, which destroys his heroic reputation until he is given a presidential apology. During his disgrace, Queen traveled across Great Britain, Europe, and much of Africa before returning to Seattle.

MSJ Answers His...I mean, Your Questions

Over HERE at the Sony Ghost Rider Blog, good old Director of DareDevil, Mark Steven "L'll Man Tate" Johnson is answering those hard biting questions we all want to know about his new movie.

Hard hitting questions like:

What's the film making experience like when shooting a flick about a character that's loved by so many fans?

(Is there really an answer to this question? "It's like the film making experience when you're shooting a flick about a character that no one loves, except harder!")

Yeesh! You guys better calm down with the aggressive fan tactics. Be patient. Let Mark tell you the answers to the burning questions like:

OK, first I wanna say I love Nicholas Cage. He's definitely in my top 5 favorite actors and it's great to see him as a superhero, but I have to ask - Why did you chose Nic?


(Because Nick's hopes fell through with Superman, Spider-man (Green Goblin), and pretty much every other superhero film out there.. Nick named himself after Luke Cage, Power Man. Nick likes comics. Its part of his Myth. Ghost Rider was the last movie he could get into unless he wanted to fight Sailor Moon or chase Garfield!)


How about this tough guy:

JW: If this film does well will we see a sequel?

(Yes. No. It all depends on if you get your wallet inspected in time. Run outside now and find the nearest wallet inspector, quick! And don't forget to stand in the middle of the road when you're out there! That's where the treasure is!)

Oh My, those were tough ones huh?

Luckily, your Stuff Daddy had some questions he sent in to slow pitch
Mark Steven Johnson's troubled mind:

I was wondering if your questions were written by
a) your PR department
b)imaginary people that live in your head
c)both

Just wondering,
it's hard to tell which.
I'm surprised no one asked you
how much nose you like in your butt.
Here's some real questions, coming from a real Ghost Rider fan:

1) "Do you feel concerned about the possibility that religious groups might be alarmed by what they will see as a sympathetic Satanic superhero?"

2) "Do you feel that the action in this movie will be more successful that the 'Peter Pan Fu' that you used in DareDevil?
(by the way, why the hell could Elektra and Bullseye fly when they jumped?)"

3) "Did you watch 'Sin City?'
Did you learn anything from it?
Is it applied in 'Ghost Rider?'"

4) "You seem to be taking on all of Marvel's 'Gritty,' 'Street' characters.
Have you ever watched a Martin Scorsese film?
Have you ever seen a gritty fist fight?
Have you every been in an alleyway?"

Thanks!
That was fun,
and good luck.....Good Luck.
