A few RSL film synopses

nightdog_barks  recently pointed me towards daasgrrl 's hilarious series of reviews of RSL films and TV appearances. Today I offer you a few brief synopses of some of the ones I've seen lately. Extremely brief.

DPS makes him
theatrical suicide
instead of doctor

Nazi Germany
RSL has got that swing
Cheesy ending, though

A callow youth makes
Much Ado About Nothing
Hero, not hero

A dull Glimpse of Hell
"You can't handle the truth!" was
much more dramatic

A Painted House was
A waste of shirtlessness with
Arkansas accent

Loool these are great! I've been curious about which RSL films to watch...

*smile* Thanks, I had fun with these! I'll probably post more once I've watched another set of films.

Lol I wish you lived closer. I've been wanting to do an RSL movie night forever but most people I know aren't RSL fans lol. I'll be curious to read more of your haikus.

Tricky because of the drive, but maybe some evening before I visit my advisor, or on a weekend :D.

If possible, that sounds fun. :) There are actually a few Hallmark movies that feature him that I want to see but they might be harder to come by...

Do you have a VCR? I know that some aren't available on DVD but could potentially be purchased on VHS (by me - oh the sacrifices I'm willing to make ;)).

I do have a VCR. And a DVD player.

Awesome! Okay.

I have DPS and Much Ado on DVD.

We could potentially watch "Married to It" on VHS or by Instant Viewing on Amazon. "My Best Friend Is a Vampire," "Ground Control," and "The I Inside" are available cheap for instant viewing on computer. "Standoff" is available for cheap on VHS, as is "Killer: Journal of Murder." "Safe Passage" is available on DVD for cheap and "In the Gloaming" for not so cheap.

Are there others you can think of that are not on this list?

"The Boys Next Door" is the one that's really been on my list, available on VHS and DVD on Amazon. He's also in "The Age of Innocence" which is likely available on DVD. "The Last Days of Disco" is available on both VHS and DVD but I'm not sure how large his role is in that. He's also in "Tape" and "Chelsea Walls" which are independent films, the former has Ethan Hawke in it and the latter I believe features him singing. He's also had a few minor roles in TV films:


Lol I'm not sure which of these you want to watch or buy, it's up to you really.

Also, if you were to come up on a weekend, I'm usually busy Saturdays but am usually free Friday nights and anytime on Sunday.

"The Boys Next Door" didn't come up in my search but looks really interesting, actually. Plus on the cover he seems to be wearing glasses :DDDD. Yes, I really am that shallow. It's expensive but sounds like it could be worth it.

"Chelsea Walls" - I remember reading about that one in a Times interview of Ethan Hawke; I'd definitely watch that, and it's cheap on DVD (especially given what one reviewer described as a "quirky interview" with RSL!!!).

I don't think his role in "The Last Days of Disco" is very large, but I can get that on Netflix to see.

I Netflixed Tape really recently, although I didn't write a haiku for it; it's certainly a good meaty role for RSL (and Ethan Hawke), but I'm not sure I'd want to see it again so soon. "The Age of Innocence" is a good movie, but RSL only has a very small role towards the end.

Sundays sound as good as any other day. I could arrange to stay with my friend that night and see my advisor on Monday.

Give me a couple of weeks to get all of this stuff together and make progress on the paper I'm writing, and maybe we could meet up sometime in late June/early July?

Sounds good to me. :)

That was amazing. And now I so want to see the waste of shirtlessness. How can that ever be wasted? [I'll skip how envious I am at the two of you.]

Thank you so much!

LOL. It's at the very beginning of the film, and from a distance. After that he hardly does anything and the film itself is just slow and not very compelling.

Review haiku FTW! I love the whole idea. My favorite was the waste of shirtlessness with Arkansas accent.
Jun. 8th, 2011 11:40 am (UTC)
Ha ha, thanks! I like that one, too.
