  1. Wanted to let you guys know that I found a new Collier & Co. - Hot Pursuit 2 Disc DVD at our local Rite Aid Pharmacy for $4.99! Yes $4.99! I couldn't believe it. I almost feel like I should mail John some money. Watched the special features disc last night and going to watch the movie tonight. Don't know if Mr. Schneider realizes it is being so so cheap, but I didn't think twice about grabbing it.
  2. Just wanted everyone to know that as opposed to the 2005 movies as I was, and as bad as it turned out to be in every aspect, I actually enjoyed the toned down version of this movie on ABC Family. However, I'm not sure I'd watch the full version on DVD. There were several instances that jarred me a little, like Lulu and the turkey, well Lulu and everything she did was over the top for me. Nevertheless, I thought it was a fair twist on the old series. It wasn't the same, but it picked up on some of the old elements from the show. It did have a "heart" to it I think. I certainly felt more of a family connection between the characters this time even if they tweaked the storyline a bit on how they came together. It's understandable that they weren't able to do as much with the General this time around. It was a lower budget movie and they had to do what they could with the money they had, and I'm sure we all know how much 69 Dodge Chargers are going for these days and how much it is to maintain them. Plus they're aren't as many around as there were in 1978, when they were only 9 years old. I'm driving a 1997 Ranger, and it's 10 years old. I'm sure in 29 years there won't be as many 1997 Rangers driving around as there are now. Anyway, for what it was, it was a fun movie. Yes, too much sex. AND, I know people like to say, well we live in 2007 and things change, BUT morallity doesn't change or shouldn't change. What's wrong in 1978, is wrong now. Dukes was edgey in it's day. I think it speaks badly of our society today that our level of "edey" has been lowered so far that people don't see that it's wrong. I'm a Christian. I believe in living a life that shows God through me. It's wrong for me to say that I agree with everything that goes on in movies, tv and the media. I don't. That stuff just shouldn't happen, but it's the world I live in. I don't believe in judging people, but I don't have to agree with what they do, and I don't agree with a lot of what I see in society. I hope that people realize that the origianl Dukes had a lot of the same beliefs that alot of people like me have. We believe in God, obeying God, being morally and ethicly responsible, loving people, caring for each other above all else, and doing what is right. That's the "heart" that was in the old Dukes and I hope people never forget that. I'm not perfect and no one is, and in saying that maybe I shouldn't have ejoyed the movie because of all the stuff that shouldn't have been in there, but I did and I have to live with it.
  3. Obviously you didn't look close enough. Bo and Luke are standing on the drivers side of the General and the lettering is behind them. If you look close you can see a little bit of lettering between their shoulders. I have no idea of what you mean about a black flag??? The flag's cross or "x" is a dark blue that, from the age of the guys looks like the picture was taken from one of the earlier General Lees and the blue paint used was fairly dark, but I'm guessing that it just looks black because of that. You make it sound from your post that they blacked out the Confederate flag and took of the lettering, but that's not the case at all. Just needed to look a little closer. Here is the link from amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/images/B000EMG90O/ref=dp_image_0/103-0982171-8995019?%5Fencoding=UTF8&n=130&s=dvd You can also find the cover art on the www.tvshowsondvd.com website.
  4. I remeber that kid from other shows in the 80's and that wasn't his voice. As well as I can remember, he had kind of a redneckish voice, which I think would have suited him better in this episode. I know for sure that the voice isn't his and it's one of those things that is really obvious and it bugs me too.
  5. That's because they didn't always air the episodes in the order they were filmed. For instance, there are also epidsodes I think where Enos is in Hazzard after he had already left for California.
  6. I think bluegrass music would have set the tone of the movie more like it should have. I'm voting for Flatts and Scruggs - Foggy Mountain Breakdown.
  7. I saw that today too and laughed my butt off. I would vote for it in every category. I hope it wins for worst movie most of all.
  8. My problem with a sequal is what's the point??? What else is there to do with this movie? I consider the movie a stand alone thing because it didn't have anything to do with the original so why make another attempt. They didn't respect the original the first time so why wish for another disrespectful movie. England??? Why Dukes in England??? I can only imagine the "warm" welcome Europeans would give to these idiots. Sure, give the Europeans another reason to think we're all backward selfindulgent selfcentric power hungry jackasses with these fine examples of character we were shown in this truely amazing example of excellent American good ol' idiots movie. I can't think of anything better to pride ourselves in or wish for. Maybe you people should really think about what it is that you want in a movie. If you're really a fan of the Dukes of Hazzard, do you really want to tarnish it anymore?
  9. Flash was both a girl and a boy. I believe the first Flash died at some point(the boy) and was later replaced by the girl Flash. Somewhere I saw James Best talk about it. I think that they were his dogs in real life as well.
  10. Ok. First of all, I'm sick. I'm sick of this movie. I'm sick of people who now think this lame excuse for a movie is the Dukes of Hazzard and I'm sick of what this stupid movie has done to the image of the Dukes of Hazzard. At this point I think if you enjoyed this movie, you shouldn't have. You should feel ashamed for the way they treated the Dukes. I don't understand how anyone can just stand by and let someone tarnish and mock something you really care about and personally, I really care about this show. I know this post is going to get major response from those of you out there that think this movie is the best thing since cheese in a can, but at the same time I want to hear from those of you who feel about this movie maybe the same as I do. I've loved this show since I can remember. I'm 27 years old now and some of my first memories are of the Dukes of Hazzard and the General Lee. The first toys I remember getting for Christmas was my little General Lee cars. So, you can see that it has really impacted my life. There are just somethings in life that you don't mess with. There are some things that don't need to be redone or reimagined or "improved". I feel strongly that the original Dukes is one of those things. It wasn't broke and they didn't need to fix it. It didn't need to be revamped for today's generation. Today's generation was already falling in love with it on CMT. I remember how popular it was when it came back on TNN also. The Dukes of Hazzard is just one of those timeless classics that you should just take it as it is and be thankful. Honestly it's a pretty lame excuse to say how wonderful it was to see the General Lee again. I watched this trashy film and if you can show me something so extrordinary that they did with the General Lee on this movie that they didn't pull of ten times better on the show 28 years ago I'll be amazed. Most of the Stunts on this movie weren't done by stunt drivers. I watched Cory Eubanks at Dukesfest this year jump a General Lee over a parked truck and you tell me it's too dangerous to do that on a movie? Oh yeah, and wow, you can put the General into a controlled slide around a big turn! BIG DEAL. Give me a break. So here it is, your chance to step on my toes and give me valid reasons for why this movie is so much better than the original. Give me valid reasons to why they needed to make it and valid reasons why people who loved the original shouldn't be upset over it. Like wise, here is the opportunity for those of you who feel the same as me to show support for the original Dukes of Hazzard and for what it stood for. Afterall, isn't this the USA and hasn't God blessed us with the ability to express our opinions and beliefs?
  11. Buddy, if you think KISS belongs in anything that even resembles the Dukes of Hazzard, you just don't get it do ya?
  12. As well as I can remember, I think the Double 00 was created for the reunion movie. I don't think it was actually in the series. As for why Waylon didn't do the movies, I can't recall either.

  14. Hey everyone. How long do you think it will take for the new movie to find it way into the Wal-Mart 5 buck bin? I hope that's where it ends up because I don't think it deserves a spot on any shelf.
  15. If you think about it, how many times do you remember Luke jumping the General? I can't think of any off hand, but I assume he did. It just really seems that Bo always jumped the General, drove the best and that's who fans really want to see behind the wheel.
