    NOTE to NON-MEMBERS: Interested in joining the SHERDOG MOVIE CLUB? Shoot me a PM for more info!

    Here's a quick list of all movies watched by the SMC. Or if you prefer, here's a more detailed examination.

    More week-based shenanigans! Coolthulu kidnapped sickc0d3r wife, child, dog, and even his DVD-collection! The only way for sickc to get them back was to trade weeks with that damnable squid. No doubt he will be killed like an 80's villain for this. What could possibly justify such a drastic risk? An ERIC ROBERTS APPRECIATION WEEK!


    King of the Gypsies

    Director: Frank Pierson

    Stars: Eric Roberts, Judd Hirsch, Susan Sarandon

    Premise: In the criminal and violent world of modern-day Gypsies based in New York City, their 'king' Zharko Stepanowicz passes his leadership to his unwilling grandson, leaving the skipped father resentful.




    Star 80

    Director: Bob Fosse

    Stars: Mariel Hemingway, Eric Roberts, Cliff Robertson

    Premise: A successful young model finds trouble when her obsessive manager-turned-husband becomes dangerously jealous. Based on the true story of 1980 Playmate of the Year Dorothy Stratten.




    The Pope of Greenwich Village

    Director: Stuart Rosenberg

    Stars: Eric Roberts, Mickey Rourke, Daryl Hannah

    Premise: Two cousins unknowingly rob the mob and face the dangerous consequences.




    Best of the Best

    Director: Robert Radler

    Stars: Eric Roberts, James Earl Jones, Sally Kirkland

    Premise: A team from the United States is going to compete against Korea in a Tae Kwon Do tournament. The team consists of fighters from all over the country--can they overcome their rivalry and work together to win?

    An Eric Roberts week? Is this real?

    [​IMG]

    Eric Roberts is so awesome that it's impossible to make a "wrong" choice here, but there's definitely one movie that I want to talk about more than the rest, so at the same time, the vote was easy.

    That's good, because I'm always anxious that I chose incorrectly.

    Forgot about the Top Theme again. I really need to start getting in the habit of reading the whole OP and not just freaking out about the new week of movies to pick from :confused:

    Top Five Mark Wahlberg performances:

    1) The Departed

    2) Pain & Gain

    3) Broken City

    4) Boogie Nights

    5) The Other Guys

    Honorable mention:

    He was secretly a comedic genius in The Happening



    He made me believe in fitness in Pain & Gain




    He's a goddamn peacock and you gotta let him fly. Without hesitation. Without a doubt. There is no other way.


    Profanely marvelous stuff



    He was born to be a star in Boogie Nights

    I nominated Star 80 before. It could be a future challenger for most rejected film in SMC history which is currently held by Predestination (2014), 3 times a loser.

    Good movie, but not one I'd wanna subject myself to again. One thing that movie taught me though was that having a Mercedes is a big deal. :eek::D

    When you pimp this hard, a Mercedes is compulsory.

    Yeah, @Coolthulu beguiled me with his awesome theme of the week, plus absurd compliments like "you seem reasonable", and then, come to find out, his pick I traded for is 4,537th. I was taken!

    Jokes on him, though, because I was planning to choose the EXACT SAME MOVIES. It's like I am getting two turns this round. HAH!
