In Memoriam: Robert “Tractor” Traylor

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on May 11, 2011 by brundleflyonthewall

What an awful, awful day. Not only does Human Target get cancelled, but the world loses a true American hero, Robert “Tractor” Traylor. Traylor was found dead in his apartment in Puerto Rico early Wednesday. As you know, Traylor is a revered figure here at Brundlefly HQ. His iconic image has graced our pages since Day One. As a fat child, and now as a fat adult, Traylor was a true role model for me.

That should've been my head Tractor was palming...*sigh*

I believe I speak for all of us who sported Utility jeans and wore a t-shirt in the pool when I say that Tractor inspired me to believe that one day I too could average 14.7 ppg and 8.9 rpg for a prestigious college basketball program. Alas, I never fulfilled my basketball potential, but Traylor was still a figure I looked up too. In his honor I thought I would post just a few of my favorite Tractor Traylors of all-time.

To say that this trailer doesn’t 110% percent rule ass is like saying Paul Blart: Mall Fart Cop doesn’t 110% rule ass. IT’S JUST A FLAT OUT UNDERSTATEMENT. Mickey Rourke? Check. Bruce Willis? Check. Jessica Alba? Check. Jessica Alba’s hips…..checccckkkk. GunsExplosionsCigarettesFrankMillerBlack&Whitekajshdfkashdfk. It’s just total system overload. Love. It.

You had me at My Sharona and Bernie Mac

Things Fall Apart

Clearly we’ve got the next Spielberg on our hand with director MVP (Mario Van Peebles for those of you who have been living in Iraq or under a rock or whatever). Not since MVP’s performances in Solo and Carlito’s Way: Rise to Power have I been so moved.

Now, I leave you with the coup de grace

Have fun trying to sleep tonight.

2011 Preview with Tractor Traylor

There are a few movies I’m looking forward to getting a chance to see in 2011 and all of them are Transformers 3. Here’s a few:

The Wild Hunt
This is a Canadian flick that made the rounds and played really well at the Toronto International Film Festival and some others. I was going to jaunt up to Toronto for it but I had a huge month for pussy last September and just didn’t make it.

This one looks pretty good. No Channing Tatum, so points against there, but still could be good.

Hesher
Joseph Gordon Levitt has almost made the total transition to awesome, respectable actor. This one could be the flick that puts him over the top.

This is not a trailer, just a scene from the flick but it gives you an idea what kind of badassery is in store. Hesher played to huge buzz and somewhat mixed reviews at Sundance 2010. Here’s an article from NYT about the movie. Which if you hate reading links, will be released in April of this year.

Drive Angry
If you thought there would be an entire year without six or more awesome Nic Cage movies, then clearly you have no idea how much he owes the IRS in back taxes.

Holy. Crap. I don’t think I can say anything to add to this film’s intensity and boner inducing badassery.

There’s plenty more flicks out there that we’ll be sure to keep you abreast of.

"Hey, does anyone know which one are Mikes and, in turn, which are Ikes?"

Scream 4 Trailer!!

As only the most astute readers could have possibly guessed, I am an absolute sucker for horror films. Especially good horror films from good directors and writers. So, of course I’ll see this movie. However, I am not sure how this will turn out. Scream 3 was a little too hokey and a little too meta to be an effective horror film.

The original Scream was so welcome and so fresh because of how bad horror films were in the 90’s. Wes Craven preceded Scream with the similarly aware New Nightmare film a few years earlier. The strength of these two films were the post-modern aspects that broke the cycle of emulating the best (and worst) of 80’s slasher cinema.  There were so many horror films prior to Scream that were so trite and silly that the genre was waiting for the reinvigoration that Scream brought.

Which begs the question now of: why is this movie being made? It’s certainly not likely to smash any notions of what a horror film can and should be. The genre is doing just fine right now in fact, despite the best efforts of the Saw franchise. However, Wes Craven doesn’t have the history of being a director to make a project without anything to say. The way that Scream was inventive in its use of cell phones and pop-cultural awareness could potentially be an issue of Scream 4. I hope the film doesn’t try too hard to be self referential or culturally relevant. In other words, if Twitter is in any way a part of this film, I’m going to pass out from non-stop dismissive wanking and eye rolling.

April 2011 release date.

We’ve got The Blindside with Sandra Bullock. It’s about this poor black kid growing up in the south who gets taken under Sandra Bullock’s wings and becomes a football star (oops spoiler alert). I actually read this book and really enjoyed it, which only means one thing, that the movie will suck (I’m looking at you Ron Howard and Tom Hanks).

Next, Tucker Max’s I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell somehow got made into a movie. I had a roommate once who swore by the guy and would get me to read some parts of the book, it was funny stuff but I’m not sure how it’ll translate into a movie. And judging by this trailer, it’s not going to translate very well. I kept waiting for Eugene Levy to pop up somewhere but instead they had Paul Wall at the end, and those two are practically interchangeable.

Coen Bros. Save Traylors for the Day

The Coen Bros. have revitalized Tractor Traylors for today

Thank God for the Coen Brothers. I completely forgot to post the trailer for their new movie A Serious Man in the earlier post. And since the other trailers sucked I decided to post a cooler picture of Tractor Traylors with this post, but don’t worry this is just a one time thing.

Pretty bad ass, I love the repeated head pounding throughout the trailer.

Wait, how old is Miley Cyrus again?

First up, Wes Anderson’s The Fanastic Mr. Fox. A stop motion with the voices of George Clooney and Meryl Streep. Before I watch the trailer I’m already kind of skeptical…

pass.

Ok, next is The Burning Plain with Charlize Theron (super hot in Mighty Joe Young, go rent it, Bill Paxton’s in it too) and Kim Basinger, who has apparently returned to Earth after vanishing for a couple years (she peaked in Wayne’s World 2).*EDIT* Ok I just watched the trailer, f that I’m not posting that crap on this website, instead I’ll post this picture.

 

My two favorite things: Charlize Theron's right boob and Charlize Theron's left boob (I bet you thought I was gonna say Charlize Theron and giant gorilla, smart ass)

MOVING ON, is Spread with Ashton Kutcher where he plays a douchebag in LA, wow this must really be a stretch for Mr. Demi Moore. A chance for him to really show off those acting chops. 

Now the only reason I posted the trailer for Spread and passed on The Burning Plain is because Spread looks hilarious because it’s like Mr. Demi Moore decided he wanted to be all intellectual and deep and do a dramedy, and judging by the trailer it’s going to bllllooooowwww.
