    "Dennis Quaid {Axe} Was the Fire Setter - He Died too and the mastermind behind it all..."

    Maybe they could make Scott Glenn some kind of fireman arsonist for the sequel?

    Dennis Quaid was the fireman in the film Frequency, released in 2000.

    Backdraft 2? Just say no.

    1- large can of diced tomatoes
    2-cloves of garlic
    2- jalapeno peppers
    2- chili peppers
    3 -tablespoons of sugar
    1 -whole white onion
    4-tablespoons of xxx-HOT horseradish!
    a shake or two of onion powder.


    Directions:
    Combine everything in a large pot and stir for a while, boil on the stove for about 5 minutes. Adding the horseradish brings out the distinct flavor that goes great in a salsa mix!

    After boiling, shut off the heat and let sit until it is cool enough to eat. The real flavor will not be revealed until about 10 minutes of cooling time.

    Too hot for me...

    I got $1.78 in loose change says it was Scott Glenn that set the fires and died along with Kurt Russel in the last one he set.
    Watch your copy a little closer next movie night.

    Dennis Quaid was the alien guy that popped out of that guy's stomach in Total Recall... right?

    I rather see Ladder 49 2 than Backdraft 2. I'll admit i STUPIDLY bought the backdraft collectors edition because I forgot how much the movie sucked.

    Way better then Backdraft or Ladder 49....

    I have an idea about a kid that calls himself a firefighter, that doesn't even have a drivers license and drives the fire dept support truck into a building looking for his pager.

    Any takers?

    Don't forget the newest firefighting movie FIREHOUSE DOG it's so bad that even our dog is embarrassed to admit he works for the fire department.

    I saw the preview for this one tonight. I don't think this could actually be considered a firefighting movie as it is a kids movie and is meant for kids. Backdraft was a firefighting movie and was meant for the adults... but it sucked.

    I know people want to admit that the movie sucked....

    but think of all the great quotes in there....

    "Sorry kid I thought you were dead"


    or the famous new guy line

    "Hi, I'm Brian."

    "I'm sorry"

    or "It coulda flashed, it shoulda flashed.... yeah but it didnt"


    Where would our great culture be without them?

    I bet somewhere warm.


    I say we remake EMERGENCY! (still think that show reminds me of MacGyver).

    Is is possible to make a decent firefighting movie? Just wondering. (wonder if they could add an explorer or to the next backdraft...)

    Yes. My view... they should just do a movie similar to Cops but all firefighting. And then make a TV series out of it (which it's coming soon [Blaze TV]).

    Follow the eyes of a Boston Jake as he starts as a rookie and then through the years uncovers a deadly cover up in the city of Boston: That the New York Yankees are killing firemen in hope that Boston will forfeit the next World Series....(because we all know that the Red Sox can beat the Yankees on any given day)

    I saw "Blades of Glory" last night and they showed a trailer of an upcoming fire department related flick.

    "I now pronounce you Chuck and Larry"




    http://movies.yahoo.com/feature/inow...kandlarry.html

    At least Jessica Biel is in it.

    That looks great. Now had it been about to SanFran FF's, I would have never believe the plot.

    BTW, for the record, I think San Fran has a great FD and some great people out there. There are however a few odd people in that city.

    I don't take special trips (go on scene unless I'm riding along).
    I don't have whacker lights... they don't interest me.
    I don't take pictures of myself in my turnouts.
    But I would like to watch a good firefighting movie.
    Guess I'm still fit to be defined as a whacker. News to me.

    Please excuse me while I go pick myself up off the ground... this could take awhile.
