    Are you going to watch the 2018 remake with Bruce Willis, DEATH WISH?

    I will admit the original is dark and VERY disturbing, but not a bad movie. I can't say the same is true about the sequels. I mean they are what they are, violence vigilante pulp. I wouldn't say they are Bronson's best work by any stretch.
    I think my friend has already seen the 2018 Death Wish remake. I haven't seen it, but that's fine with me, because the trailer didn't impress me.

    Prior to our marathon, I had only seen DW 1, and he had only seen DW 1 and DW 3. So DW 2 and 4-5 were new to both of us.

    However, I was able to quote DW3 before I even saw it, due to my familiarity with the following song, which opens with audio from the movie:


    As for our next movie selection, it may be Nowhere to Hide (1987 film). We haven't seen it in decades, and neither one of us remembered the title, only that we liked it. But when he described it, I remembered enough about the cast to find it on Wikipedia.

    A friend and I did a marathon of the original Death Wish (film series) over the last two weekends. When we got to Death Wish 4: The Crackdown, I recognized the actress who played the daughter of Bronson's love interest, but at first couldn't place her. When the credits rolled I saw her name and realized she was on Babylon 5. The actress was Dana Barron, who went on to play Bester's trainee Lauren in "The Corps is Mother, the Corps is Father".

    So finally, finally we got a Crusade sequel.

    (I do remark very officially: this is not a political correct statement. )

    Yeah it has been a little modified, but if you watch the episode you can tell that even the material looks the same.

    Hum...
    There are real differences (not only the lack of an earthforce badge).

    This has nothing to do with an actor, but check out this uniform that appeared in Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. last night. Sorry the capture isn't better.

    Yes it was OBVIOUSLY him. LOL

    I do admit that Fleck was more obvious. And keeping with that theme, I recently revisited WATERWORLD (1995). Fleck has a supporting role as does Jack Kehler, Mr. Chase from COMES THE INQUISITOR - 2.21.

    I remember his voice was the same for both the characters he played in B5. I see IMDB has updated his Actor Filmography to include Krill officer in the Orville episode "Blood of Patriots." So that was indeed him in the two above pictures in my earlier posts.

    So mor an actor as such, but definitely a star of B5. In the first 10 episodes of agents of S.H.I.E.L.D they're in a future dystopia. They return to contemporary times but bring along a stowaway. This guy has never tasted beer, so he orders some, decides he hates the taste and says "do you have something like that, but delicious?" And hes handed a bottle of...
    Zima. Proceeds to get , as they say, rat arsed and its efen mentioned by name later.
    zima, turning up in sci fi shows for 200 years

    Two of the Krill in the episode had speaking parts. The Robin Atkin Downes Krill spoke in vocal fry, to hide his British accent. The other Krill (the Ambassador) didn't change his voice and I could tell it was John Fleck, who also played Silik, in Star Trek: Enterprise.

    Good catch!

    He has done quite a few prosthetic roles I think. He is in the Buffy episode Reptile Boy (2:5) as Machida a huge man-snake-demon-thing. But he is not alone guest staring in Buffy, N'Grath guest stared in Teacher's Pet (1:4) as the substitute teacher Natalie French. Do we know of any other B5 actors appearing in Buffy or the other way around?

    Oh, I just remembered Robin Sachs who plays the great villain Ethan Rayne in Buffy plays several characters in B5. He plays Hedroon in Points of Departure and All Alone in the Night, Warleader Na'kal in The Fall of Night and Walkabout, and Na'Tok in Movements of Fire and Shadow and The Fall of Centauri Prime. He was also, along Morgan Sheppard, one of those actors with a great and distinct voice.

    Note the 20th century items on the shelves in the background.
    Pat Tallman could have played two of the witches or all three. But in the documentary she only talks about the middle scene, appropriately set in the Middle Ages.
