Get Carter

Posted: June 25th, 2002, by Chris H

I’ve just seen the poster for the Stallone remake of Get Carter. hahahaha. No wonder it went straight to video here.

But I want to see it!

A chance to see him throw someone from an american soap opera offof Gateshead carpark. (Or wherever the septic equivalent of newcastle is.) And the scene where he orders a pint of bitter IN A TALL GLASS:

Carter: “give me a bottle of Budweiser / Miller / Coors [Sly, who’s your agent dealing with for this scene? – hack director]. IN A TALL BOTTLE.”

Chris H

Chris was hit by a brick as a child and lost the popular culture part of his brain. This affliction means he is only able to listen to obscure japanese noise bands and watch films with overtly complex storylines. His other interests include skulking, editing documents, taunting policemen and entering undecipherable handwriting contests. He lives in an enormous underground laboratory where he spends many hours trying to un-invent television.
