JCVD (Van Damme Being Malkovich) (2008)


#1

"JCVD is the upcoming feature starring real life washed out action movie star Jean Claude Van Damme as real life washed out action movie star Jean Claude Van Damme. He’s shooting a film and his life is falling apart. Van Damme’s real life substance abuse problems? In there. His child custody battle? In there? His brush with bankruptcy? In there. It’s a hysterically funny piss take on Van Damme’s own life - with the Belgian star as a more than willing participant - and a send up of celebrity in general and it just may be the film that puts him back on top of the heap."

Haha, what the fuck is this? Looks funny, but probably not as funny as this legendary scene:

Van Damme kicks ass!


#3

I just saw his latest “The Shepherd - Border Patrol” yesterday, and it was okay.

He doesn’t look half as good as 15 years ago.

I grew up on JCVD’s movies. I regard Bloodsport, Kickboxer, Lionheart, Double Impact and Hard Target as true action classics. I love em! Theyre still alot of fun to watch.



This new film looks really interesting to me. It looks like Van Damme thrown in a French arthouse film. Id like to check it out.

It kinda reminds me of Pauly Shore is Dead.

The trailer don’t make any sense !

It’s been out in theaters here in France for a long time but I never felt like seeing it even if everyone said it was surprisingly good.



Nice video 21g haha

But actually the first part makes sense, if you forget strict mathematics, you can say 1+1=1, like when there’s an union of 2 people, in that case it’s the interviewer and the star. I mean you gotta give him some credit for trying to be smart :stuck_out_tongue:

I’ve been trying to download this movie forever but still haven’t been able to find an English dub.

Saw it on Fantasy Filmfest in Munich.

Although I am no admirer of Van Damme (I’m more the Stallone/Schwarzenegger-Fan), I liked it quite well.

hehe yeah, I think I know what he wants to say for 1+1=1 but with “1+1=11, et ça c’est beau” and the thing about 13 is quite suspect. ;D
