FIRST IMPRESSIONS

Just saw the original Longest Yard – or, as it's apparently called in the UK, The Mean Machine. Yeah, imagine my confusion, especially knowing about the Adam Sandler remake!
This is the second American football movie I watched today, after revisiting The Blind Side! :D And I… didn't like it. I'm sorry: this seems to be a very popular movie, but it didn't... read more

"3/7/17 Burt Reynolds is the former football star who ends up in prison under Governor Eddie Albert, who blackmails him into forming a prison team to go against the guards.

Look out for Richard (Jaws) Kiel, credited as Dick Kiel."
