Raging Bull

I wasn’t really into it. Deniro played the crazy boxer quite convincingly. I genuinely understood how that much pain can cause insane behaviour. The Directing was at times fascinating and then over the top and most times I just didn’t care for it.

Acting: B

Directing: B-

Plot: C+

The Naked Gun

One rant for today.

Why are there 4 Scary Movie movies and only 3 Naked Guns? Parody films are sooo annoying sometimes (naked gun is a parody movie, I know). but Superhero movie? that’s almost as bad as “Reference Movie” (See movie at bottom). But anyway, I love Naked Gun. and it’s humor, or lack thereof, is me. so here’s 2 interviews with David Zucker and Leslie Neilsen. and a snip-it from Wikipedia about Police Squad – the show Naked Gun was based on.

Interviewer: Any chance of you guys re-teaming for another “Naked Gun” in the future?
Zucker: We would really like to. The studio just doesn’t get the joke though. They’re not interested in the franchise. Funny thing was, Scary Movie 3 opened up against a Paramount movie at the box office on the same week of release and the Paramount movie disappeared without a trace. They still may not get it, but if they really wanted to see whether spoof movies still work they should’ve taken a look that week, even back when Scary one came out. And if they think that’s a different case because it was an R rated spoof movie, they should look at ours – it’s PG-13.


Interviewer: David mentioned that there might be a fourth Naked Gun if they can persuade the humourless folks at Paramount to do it. Would you want to do it?

Neilsen: I’d keep my fingers crossed. I would do it, are you kidding? I mean, it’s a special kind of humour and the essence of the humour is that they never try to tell the audience what’s funny. But without —

Interviewer: O.J.?

Neilsen: O.J. Well, it never crossed my mind that that would have made any difference, not to say that he wasn’t very heavy support for the film; he was a very big athlete and a big star. Very enthusiastic and very easy and wonderful to work with. But it may be that that coloured part of their consideration in choosing to not give it a run, but people have come in even after and wanted to buy the property. Paramount could have sold the property, but it’s in the archives, and you don’t sell things if you’re not going to use them yourself, because if they get sold and then become big hits, or big money maker, then somebody is responsible.


“Police Squad! was cancelled because the viewer had to watch it in order to appreciate it.” What Thomopoulos meant was that the viewer had to actually pay attention to the show in order to get much of the humor, while most other TV shows did not demand as much effort from the viewer. In its annual “Cheers and Jeers” issue, TV Guide magazine called the explanation for the cancellation “the most stupid reason a network ever gave for ending a series.”

Matt Groening is quoted as saying “If Police Squad! had been made twenty years later, it would have been a smash. It was before its time. In 1982 your average viewer was unable to cope with its pace, its quick-fire jokes. But these days they’d have no problems keeping up, I think we’ve proved that.”

The Grunting Had Become Too Much

2 03 2008

lauryngruntsfoundationNo, not a bear, not an ape or gorilla, not even my roommate (who even grunts when he’s fixing his hair – no hair – it’s such an effort to move a comb over no hair, but you seem to find a way to make it look hard [sound hard] [is it weird that I’m using a lot of parenthesis? and that I’m saying “close parenthesis when I do this ] ) You’d think she’s a prostitute for some of the things she says, like “ugh! ugh! UGH!” and “It feels natural to do my noise. I’m not faking it…”
But I digress…
9-year-old Lauryn Edwards (yes, the “Y” does make her cool [ not the slang term of YMCA, but the
actually replacement of “e” for that crazy “y”] was found at fault by her local tennis club for grunting too loudly. She was banned. Her father has made comments defending her daughter, saying things like: his daughter’s grunting was nowhere near Sharapova’s level and had been exaggerated and “She was in such a state that I had to bring her home mid-match.”


Here you go, a video for you, (Pedophiles)…

Real Dolls for Real Men

1 03 2008

“The New York Daily News says that Charlie Sheen once paid 6,000 dollars to purchase a Real Doll, an anatomically correct sex doll, this one dressed like a cheerleader. From there though, the story gets a little weird.
But then came the night when, according to our source, Sheen tried to get two female party companions interested in a foursome with the bouncy cheerleader.
“They couldn’t stop laughing at him,” says the snitch. “Charlie got so mad that he ran the girls out of his house. Then he took a meat cleaver and chopped one of the doll’s hands off. He and his bodyguard tried to dispose of it, like it was a real body. They wrapped it in a blanket and drove around in the middle of the night till they found a Dumpster.”
I’m pretty sure if I was stopped by the cops and I had a body wrapped in a blanket, I would rather it be a real little kid with no head than a one handed sex doll covered in semen and stab wounds. You probably don’t have to be Freud to guess that a dude who fucks a mannequin and then chops off it’s hands might have some issues with women. Although, to be fair, a lot of time you pay thousands of dollars for these dolls, and when they get there, only then does the doll tell you they’re gay. At least that’s what mine did. ”

Let’s only hope he doesn’t buy two and a half real dolls! bahahahahahahaha!
