Jake, who is also a very talented musician, sings two songs in RAMBO. Below is a clip of Jake performing on his Tattoo Across America tour. His latest album “Graveyard Jones” is great - we highly recommend it. You can get it through his website at: http://www.jakelabotz.com

One Night With You Star Mark Boone Junior Gets Rave Reviews in 30 Days of Night

Wednesday, October 17th, 2007

30days-night-_24.jpg

FROM SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE:
“While Danny Huston is appropriately creepy and menacing as the vampire leader, the standout performance once again comes from Mark Boone Junior, who plays a fearless town outcast who does the best construction equipment beat-down since Sigourney Weaver climbed in that “Aliens” forklift robot thing.”

FROM CINEMATICAL.COM:
“What could be better than Mark Boone Junior driving around in some kind of chainsaw-esque tractor, slicing through multiple baddies while simultaneously blowing away others with a shotgun? Exactly. Nothing could be better. In fact, I think I like this scene better than that sequence in Dawn of the Dead where they’re driving the modified bus around. But that partially has to do with my appreciation for Mark Boone Junior. He just looks like the perfect guy to be in charge of a task like this.”

FROM PULPSECRET.COM:
“In particular, Mark Boone Junior is great as Beau, creating a character that has excellent moments of both humor and pathos.”

FROM LATINOREVIEW.COM
“Although the film is supposed to be a vehicle for Hartnett, he isn’t the leading man you want to root for. Mark Boone Junior, best known as corrupt cop Flass in “Batman Begins” gives a great supporting performance as a grizzled townsman who fearlessly takes on the entire Vampire clan with a snow plow equipped with, flares, dynamite and bear traps. He has a full beard unlike Hartnett who barely grows peach fuzz after not shaving for a month.”

From 411Mania.com:
“The best character in the movie is town recluse and snow plow driver Beau Brower, played by the always cool Mark Boone Junior. His character’s back story is interesting, he’s got plenty of screen charisma, he can act and make you care about him, and he gets three great scenes kicking vampire butt. Why isn’t the movie about him? Why isn’t he able to redeem his death fighting vampires in “John Carpenter’s Vampires”?”

From Epinions.com:
The supporting cast is very nice with my favourite being the amazing Mark Boone Junior (Memento, Batman Begins) playing the stereotypical bad mutha effa who lives on the outskirts of town as a live-for-nothing drifter man’s man.

From SaveAngel.org:
“Mountain man Beau (an awesome Mark Boone Junior) embodies the strange stock that would choose to live somewhere like that…”

From TV Guide.com:
“Mark Boone Jr. makes a vivid impression as eccentric loner Beau Brower…”

“Having the opportunity to screen One Night With You in 35mm in the Historic Park Theatre, the oldest movie house west of the Mississippi - that alone was an unforgettable honor” said Joe D’Augustine. “To win Best Director of the festival on top of that… I’m speechless. My wife and filmmaking partner Heather D’Augustine and I had such an amazing time at this festival. The scenery, the people, the impeccably run festival - it doesn’t get much better than this for a filmmaker. We’d really like to thank the Estes Park Film Festival, the Park Theatre, all the volunteers, audience members, sponsors and my fellow filmmakers for contributing to an awesome weekend of film.”
