... when clearly it's Joe Dirt


In my head I thank these people; announcing such profound mediocrity early in a relationship is true gift -- otherwise you might waste valuable conversation on them (with regards to movies, at least).

In all fairness, I've yet to see Joe Dirt 2. That's obviously the only film with any possibility of surpassing the original.

You do have a good point about such announcements. I should embrace those moments for the time savers they are rather than allowing them to kill off a little bit of all that remains of my hope for humanity.

While taking a night course in college, many, many, many years ago, our assignment that night was to watch Citizen Kane and then answer about 20 or so questions on the film (the professor teaching the course on media was out and obviously phoned-in this assignment to the sub). During a break, I was outside with a bunch of people from the class and overheard "Ugh, movies in B&W suck!". I fondly recall doing this :roll:


I get a similar response when I lend someone a movie with subtitles... obviously not saying it is black and white, unless it is black and white as well.

"Ugh, we have to read this?"

Just sit down, shut up and watch the movie, Michael Bay is there for you afterwards

:lol:

In the end they changed the movies which were shown on Saturday. No explanation was given. Heck, they never even made mention of it.
I'd been wondering about that Dracula's Death one, actually. The only information I could find on such a movie was that it was an old Hungarian one, but that one is classified as a lost movie.
The actual line-up ended up being Edison's Frankenstein, Laurel & Hardy's Habeus Corpus, and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligeri.
Fine choices all around.

I got some tickets to take the kids to see Wrestlemania next Spring in Dallas. I get to check off an item from my childhood bucket list and now I've pretty much finished my xmas shopping for the older kids. Win-win

That guy was just telling me how awesome 'White Chicks' is.

Specifically, the lactose intolerance scene is what he truly finds to be the comedic gem here.

Have I also mentioned that according to him the funniest scene in 'Blazing Saddles' is the campfire beans scene?

If it actually made money, then surely we'd have had White Chicks 2: Asian Chicks by now.

Hmm. It made $69,148,997.

Okay, how about...And that is why Adam Sandler keeps making movies.

Saturday night we had severe thunder storms and lost electricity for a few hours. After about 20 minutes in the dark, my two older kids (15 & 13) and their friend who was sleeping over (15) had the idea to bust out the Ouija board and play by candlelight. I couldn't have been more proud.

Copious movies have taught me that once the demon has entered your home and latched on to the family you have only a few days before the terror really ramps up and people start dying. I figure I have another day or two to get my affairs in order.

My condolences :(

PS: see if you can copy any of the ruckus on VHS tape, then perhaps you can pass on the haunting by placing said tape in a video rental store and.....oh wait, I guess that won't work. Can you stream demonic hauntings? Do we have another movie script here (or has that been done?).
