Ron Perlman
The Dime
Maybe I'm crazy, and in the minority or something, but I'm kinda crushing on this guy. It's probably all because of City of Lost Children to be honest. (The scene where Miette takes a string of his shirt as to not get lost and we get to watch it slowly unravel.) Just watched Cronos and while he's playing a thug, he's doing it in English and Spanish. So I looked him up on International Movie Database Ok, so I guess the rest of the world knows him as Hellboy, and that's pretty cool too. Oh wait, he's the voice of Slade from Teen Titans? He's the narrator of the Fallout games? There's a Dungeon Siege movie coming out?

In other revelations, the world of voice acting is a small one, and many of your favorites turn up in the strangest of places.

Ron Perlman is eerily attractive - I can't explain it, either. And I believe his real role in Cronos is "Guy who really, really wants a nose job".

Ding ding ding, you win. A nose job it is.

Yes. He is attractive, in that "how is he possibly as attractive as my brain is telling me he is right now?" way. I dig him.

And have you SEEN the CAST for the Dungeon Siege movie? Did you notice that MATTHEW LILLARD gets top billing? And ye gods... did you SEE who is PLAYING the KING? Oy VEY. ::laugh::

Burt Reynolds, I believe. Burt Reynolds, Matthew Lillard, Ron Perlman, John Rhys-Davies, Leelee Sobieski, that chick from Terminator 3... this casting list has me very, very confused.

Did you see the director? That's just... takes the cake. Tells you what THAT movie is going to be like.


(Hint: it's Uwe Boll, so it's not just going to blow, it's going to BLOOOOOOOOOOOOOW)

but if it's anything like "alone in the dark" you won't be able to tell what movie he's filming about, you'll cock your head all funy at least six times in the first five minutes, you'll want to rewind every ten minutes after that to see how exactly re-COCK-ulous that last chase scene was, and it will be filled with such classic lines as "don't be INSANE!"

enjoyable? yes. but not for any of the reasons you would actually like amovie for. i was convinced it was a troma film towards the end.

Oh Troma... *sighs* The only people to do a retelling of Romeo and Juliet in which they both survive, find out they're brother and sister, and decide to keep doing each other anyway.... Who are these people?

Funny you should mention THAT!
Susan and I just watched it the other night. I was in the mood for a "monsters running around in the dark movie" ala Pitch Black.

Hrm... I was trying to figure out how to describe it. It has much the same feel End of Days did for me.
Aliens meets Prince of Darkness
Stargate meets Resident Evil
Event Horizon meets The Relic

Gah but MUCH worse than all those, except... well, Event Horizon meets The Relic might be about right. Gah, ask Susan... we have a litany against this film. Though to its credit it was kind of funny, but we think this was unintended. We should have been drunk.

Up untill now it was to early to log in

um... good morning.

Have you seen In the Name of the Rose? A good film with Christian Slater (unlike Alone in the Dark) and Sean Connery.

Ron Perlman plays a hunchback who speaks in pidgin English-French-German-Latin-?.

Yes! City of the Lost Children. Much love. The thing with his sweater has to be the greatest unintentional striptease of all time.

To see him at his cockiest, get thee The Last Supper. You'll never look at a tomato the same way, but it's a fun movie, and, hey - Courteney B. Vance going crazy is an added bonus.

I am also extremely fond of Ron in Happy, Texas. Of course, what's not to love about any movie where Ron Perlman refers to William H. Macy as "one big-dicked cop" - more than once?!?
