Submerged Impressions

A disappointing percentage of this movie actually happens underwater.

Preliminary reports on Submerged were bad.  In fact, when we were buying up the DVDs initially there were some gaps (and we still don’t have Ticker) but one of the first gaps filled was Submerged.  It was bought to be an example of the very worst we could expect from Steven Seagal’s straight-to-DVD fare.  However, Pod and I both found it to be enjoyable nonsense, definitely better than either The Glimmer Man or The Foreigner and I’m sorry to say I think we actually enjoyed it more than Into the Sun on that particular evening.

Into the Sun Impressions

Interesting how Seagal is doing the OPPOSITE of what the title states.

Chronologically (as we’ve been proceeding apart from when I forgot Out For a Kill) the next film is supposed to be Out of Reach.  But the way the box sets worked out we ended up with two copies of that particular film so Pod and I are going to try to liveblog it from either side of the Irish Sea.  So we skipped on to the next film, Into the Sun.

Vern gave this one a pretty good review and the fact that it was released theatrically in Japan, that I knew it had sword fights and that it has that hilariously awesome cover were all pointing towards this being another favourite, but I’m sorry to say it fell very short of the mark.  Continue reading

Belly of the Beast Impressions

Look at this fucking mess

So when I went round to Pod’s for our usual 4-movie sitting I ended up forgetting to bring Out For a Kill, the movie that’s mentioned in the other posts here as the one I was going to talk about first.  Unfortunately, this website is only operated by two people so I don’t have the resources for a Ministry of Truth and won’t be retconning the previous posts.

Be warned that in this and every other post there will be spoilers in the classical sense.  I know I don’t watch these films to see how the story unfolds so I don’t know if I would technically consider them “spoilers” because they don’t actually detract from my enjoyment. Continue reading

Steven Seagal movies tend to have titles where you can read Seagal’s name followed by “is” followed by the title to make a full sentence.  His best movie is called “Out for Justice”.  So with his name on top of … Continue reading

Moving onto a fateful summer…

Aside

In the summer of 2009 a friend and I embarked upon a quest to watch Steven Seagal’s complete filmography.  We failed.  It was inspired by our discovery of Vern‘s book “Seagalogy: A Study of the Ass-Kicking Films of Steven Seagal“.  I came up with the idea of blogging the experience.  I called the blog “On Deadly Blog” in reference to Seagal’s disgustingly self-obsessed opus “On Deadly Ground”.  The blog was equally as successful as the quest itself.  I’m going to reproduce relevant posts from the blog, which is linked to on the right.
