Tuesday Movie Review # 2

Well boys and girls, I finally went out and rented one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. Hot Fuzz is another example as to why British movies are slowly taking over. Ok, ok it may not be "British" per se, but British actors are taking over. I find myself liking our actor brothers and actress sisters across pond more and more everyday. With the exception of maybe two or three American actors, the Redcoats have come...ya...(I do have to show love to Bruce Campbell, Chevy Chase and Johnny Depp.) Anyways, the story of Hot Fuzz starts out with Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg...who is absolutely brilliant) starring as one bad-mother-freaking-ass cop who lays down so much smack that he receives a transfer to a small little hamlet because he is making the rest of the police look terrible. That is where the show really takes off is when he goes to this little hole-in-the-wall town where "Nothing ever happens." I hope that the guys who made this film and Shaun of the Dead continue to make quality films like these. Shaun of the Dead was another fine fine piece of work. I hadn't had that much fun killing zombies since the Evil Dead Trilogy.

I had to watch the movie when everyone else had gone to sleep, and there were times I had to bury my face in a pillow and laugh for fear that I would wake them up. There are so many things about this movie that spoke to me, that I had to rewind at least two dozen places to make sure I heard the dialogue right. Holy crap, what a ride that was. One of my favorite parts was when...I won't spoil it. If you haven't seen HOt Fuzz yet, run, don't walk...don't even take the car...we are trying to save the planet people; to your nearest rental facility and get it. You will not be disappointed. You'll laugh, you'll cry...you'll shite your pants with laughter!

I have to give Hot Fuzz Four Bawls, AND a Karl Malone kick to the crotch. Now that is saying something.

Just for you J.B(squared)

I was thinking of you tonight when I went to dinner. It just wasn't the same...it still was freakin' amazing tho-

Tuesday Movie Review

So I had a couple hours tonight to myself, and thought I would indulge and watch a movie on demand. It isn't really a secret that I am a fan of the horror genre, and when I saw that our dear friends at Comcast have started hosting the 8 Films to Die For, and nearly "shirt me drawers." I randomly selected the movie Penny Dreadful. For a low-budget thriller, I have to say that I was pretty impressed. It even had a cameo by cult-fav Michael Berryman. The filming is great, and the atmosphere of the show is actually pretty damn creepy. It kind of caters to a lot of our primal fears, lost, stranded, alone in the dark, being stalked by a faceless killer...uh ya. Overall, damn fine film. I wouldn't recommend it if you were planning on driving the state roads of Montana at night...(Author's editorial - That is no bueno.) Now after seeing this one, I feel like I am obligated to seek out the other 7 films. Is it a sickness that I have? Once I saw thr original Friday the 13th, I just 'had' to finish the other movies. Honestly, they will be making those films for-freaking-ever. Ok children, now the time that you have all been waiting for...I give Penny Dreadful two of four Bawls

I came across this profile of Debra Flinn's on MySpace, (http://www.myspace.com/desperatetodandridge) and I was really impressed. It appears that this lady is walking from Florida to Tennessee. Jeez. I guess she contacted Subway restaurants and told her about what she was doing, and Knoxville Subways provided her sandwiches along the way as a sponsorship. Thats pretty cool.
