WHAT HAPPENED TO THE MOTORCYCLE BOY?

Few days ago I watched a couple of films in which Mickey Rourke was the star. I caught the terrible Harley Davidson and Marlboro Man on TV and then I watched Angel Heart. Obviously I wasn’t interested in the first one, but the second is brilliant, so much, I updated Popcorn and Movies reviewing it.

If there was a golden decade for Rourke in terms of acting, that would be 1980’s. Not only he became a sex symbol, wetting millions of pants of women in their 20-30s, especially after 9 ½ Weeks, but also delivered very outstanding performances, Angel Heart and A Prayer for the Dying among them.

I  was too young to be interested in such a big guy in the 80’s, and of course most of his most remarkable films weren’t suitable for my age. On one hand I wouldn’t be allowed to watch 9 ½ Weeks nor Barfly for obvious reasons, Rumble Fish, its story and iconography were still too alien for me, and I wasn’t interested in Francesco. Johnny The Handsome and Year of the Dragon were probably the first movies I saw.

There was this magazine for teenage girls, Ragazza, which issued one special calendar, I think it was in 1990, with many pictures of the current Hollywood pant-wetters: Tom Cruise, Matt Dillon, Rob Lowe, Patrick Swayze, River Phoenix… and Mickey Rourke.

In my opinion, and thinking of the calendar, Rourke didn’t fit at all. He wasn’t as young as the others, hadn’t to do with the so called Coppola generation despite the fact that he’d worked with Dillon and Nicholas Cage in Rumble Fish, and had rejected many blockbuster roles. Money and fame weren’t his priorities, and he even admitted to despise his own acting.

Rourke was a truly rebel, the Motorcycle Boy beyond cameras. Tough, bad shaved, smoking and super manly. The bad boy many girls want to meet at some point in their lives. I think I had a crush on him when playing the the loser detective Harry Angel in Angel Heart. Sweaty and dirty, however using his body language in a way as to make him irresistible. Then the rest of his films followed, most of times featuring this rebel and tortured, and even decadent character… the world used to stop every time I caught any of his films on TV.

I remember when he decided to quit performing to resume to his boxing career everybody was thinking he’d gone mad, but he did actually fine for some time. However there were physical and mental effects due to the beating, which left marks for good. Even though he continued acting in shitty projects and supporting roles I wasn’t aware of, from time to time pictures were published and he was looking awful.

Everybody was in shock when he made his proper comeback as Marv in Sin City, but I wasn’t so impacted because he was characterized based on Miller’s comic. It was Aronofsky’s The Wrestler what left me speechless. His face, his lips, his expression… everything was all gone, plus his appearance was terrible.

He blames his first plastic surgeon he visited in order to fix all the mess caused by fighting on ruining his face for good. I don’t think those who touched him next were much better either. Now he’s 60 and there’s no remedy for the damage done, and he’s completely different to what he used to be. Still I sigh whenever I see him as the Motorcycle Boy observing the coloured fish, get horny when he’s playing games with Kim Bassinger in front of the fridge, and feel sorry for Harry Angel when he discovers the truth Louis Cyphre is hiding from him.

Aaaah, Mickey, why did you kill The Motorcycle Boy? He used to reign my world.

 ** PS. Pssst, psssst! I have a confession to make: I find his terrible hands fascinating!

 

JAMES DEEN, A REBEL WITH A STICK ;-)

When I wrote about my porn world, I told you I wasn’t, and still am not, a regular consumer. Nevertheless I think girls should be more acquainted with this industry and be more interested in the guys’ input concerning the subject, so being update you more or less also get to know their tastes. It should happen the other way round, of course, but I think girls are more into iconic and platonic love with actors, characters and musicians, this is, everything is more innocent, still close to our early teenage years, if you know what I mean: Ryan Gosling, Michael Fassbender (I gotta admit I have a nasty fascination towards this perfect guy, and I surprise myself thinking the dirtiest shit you can imagine…), John Hamm, Christian Bale, George Clooney… And we don’t hide our ideal guys tastes.

Girls who don’t interact with men at the same level and in confidence, seldom know who Stoya, Sasha Grey, Rachel Roxxx, Remi La Croix… there are hundreds your friends can tell you about, just ask.

Since I told you I like Stoya as one of the hottest porn actresses currently in bizz, and a personal favorite, watching some scenes and seeing the million gifs available on the net, I started wondering who was the guy who is banging her most often in front of the cameras. Not huge, not super muscle guy, not super hairy, and with a decent but not overwhelming size of his dick. But definitely he’s got something…yeah, for the first time a porn actor who is attractive! Can’t believe it!

On the other hand, all the story and news related to 50 Shades of Grey big screen adaptation project has been detailed tweeted by Bret Easton Ellis, Patrick Bateman’s dad, as he was meant to write the script but eventually was kicked out from the project. He was telling about the possible candidates for the role of Christian Grey, the eccentric millionaire who wants the girl to be his sexual slave. I don’t want to focus on the story right now. One of the actors named was Ian Somerhalder, who was dismissed after his recently discovered homosexual condition. He’s an actor but all things considered, nobody would believe him nor taking him serious as Grey. The second name strongly rumored was James Deen, yep, with double E.

I didn’t know who he was till one day I decided to search in Google, and Oh! Surprise! James Deen was Stoya’s banger, and the guy who is turning me on lately. So now I have a face and his name, and he’s about to jump into mainstream film business with The Canyons, written by Bret Easton Ellis. This is getting interesting.

Checking his bio, Deen is said to be only 26 years old and is probably the best paid porn actor nowadays. He started acting in 2008, when he was 18, and has received some porn industry awards. He’s also film director, focusing on female-friendly pornography.

Someone said he was rough, and sure he is, but if you think about it, you don’t look for tenderness in a porn movie, do you? I kinda like his smooth but dominant attitude, and I don’t feel ashamed admitting it. I haven’t read 50 Shades of Grey, but according to the spoilers spread related to Christian Grey’s character, I think Deen had to ruin the performance badly to change my opinion of him as the perfect candidate for the character. He can be loving, but dominant, sadistic and despicable at the same time. He’d be the right choice.

So, seems that I’ve arrived late again, but I’ve still caught him before he becomes the next big thing. Sasha Grey jumped into conventional films thanks to Soderbergh, although se preferred to be back in porn. What will happen with Deen? We’ll have to wait and see. I know positive I’m not gonna miss any progress in his career 😉
