I was told recently that there's a certain someone that I don't talk about a lot here. Sorry about that, Krissie. I'll talk about you more often from now on, I promise. :)

Hello and welcome back, dear readers. And greetings to you poor saps that stumbled here from Google (if you came here thanks to the Misty Mundae reference on Friday, hahaha sucker). If you're new, I'm glad to have you here. If you're not new, then I'm surprised you're still around.
Me and my dawg Mo went to Bardstown to see the new Farrely Brothers movie, Stuck On You. It had its moments, but most of the good stuff is in the TV commercials and trailer. The basic plot of the movies is a pair of conjoined twins, played by Matt Damon and Greg Kinnear, move to Hollywood from Martha's Vineyard because Kinnear's character wants to be an actor. Hilarity ensues once he's cast in a new TV show starring Cher (and I thought hearing Cher drop an F-bomb during the movie was funny). Overall, a thin plot and too many unfunny jokes hurt this one, so I'm gonna give Stuck On You two stars. There's better ways to kill two hours, so unless you're a fan of the cast or the Farrelys, you might want to skip this one.
I'm gonna wrap this up now. Thank you, come again.

Hope everybody had a nice Christmas, because I know I did. :)
Okay, I'm sure everybody's wanting to know my Christmas swag. Or maybe not. I don't know. Whatever. Anyway, here's what I got on Christmas Day: the Indiana Jones DVD box set, The Matrix Reloaded DVD, the X-Men 1.5 and X-Men 2 DVDs, Resident Evil Zero for my Gamecube, and 237 dollars. It took that 237 dead presidents to the Lexington mall today and picked up the first seven Friday The 13th movies, Jeepers Creepers 2, the "H25" special edition of Halloween, the video album for CKY's "Infiltrate Destroy Rebuild" (which is a DVD full of music videos of the songs from the CD, one of which stars B-movie queen/softcore porn star Misty Mundae), WWE's Ric Flair DVD, the Haggard soundtrack, and Mandy Moore's "Coverage" album. Good times.
I wonder how many people will see this site from Google thanks to me typing "softcore porn star" earlier. If you saw that on Google and thought there'd be pictures of Misty Mundae here, sorry. You'd be better off going HERE instead.
Anyway, there's not a whole lot I have to say other than sharing my swag. Once again, I hope everyone had a happy and safe Christmas/Hannukah/Kwanzaa/Thursday, and I hope y'all have a safe New Year too. Peace.

Nothing really to add today. Just wanted to point out the new additions to the "Blatant Movie Shilling" section. Those would be the theatrical release dates for The Passion of the Christ and Spider-Man 2, and the video release dates of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake and Cabin Fever. That's all, and I'm out for now.
Friday, December 12, 2003; 1:55 a.m.
Just an update to share the three new reviews at "Sutton At The Movies." Those flicks are Night of the Living Dead, The Return of the Living Dead, and the direct-to-video Haggard. Enjoy. :)

You know, I posted a few weeks ago about CKY, and I'd just like to reiterate the fact that they rock (and you can visit their official site at CKYMusic.com). I was actually talking to the Princess of Pink (the commoners know her as "B") about CKY and my favorite non-American band HIM (whose official site is HERE) a few days ago, and she'd never heard of them. That's understandable, most people haven't. CKY isn't really famous yet and HIM is from Europe. I do recommend downloading their MP3s or buying their albums, however. CKY has two easy-to-find albums ("Volume 1" and "Infiltrate Destroy Rebuild"), while HIM only has one American CD ("Razorblade Romance"). If you want to download some of their MP3s, here's my official CKY/HIM recommendations:
If you have to know, "Shock And Terror", "Close Yet Far," "Lose You Tonight," and "Heartache Every Moment" are my personal favorites. I like all of HIM and CKY's stuff, but I like those four songs most of all. (Honorable mentions go to "Flesh Into Gear," "96 Quite Bitter Beings," "Pretending," and "Wicked Game.")
Man, I started typing this several hours ago and I haven't been able to think of anything to type after the previous paragraph. I hate writer's block. HATE IT HATE IT HATE IT ARGH! Am I the only one that happens to? Because it really really sucks. Really.
You know, I had considered posting the full specs for the Freddy Vs. Jason DVD (according to HorrorDVDs.com), but I think everyone is getting sick of me shoving it down their throats. Sure, nobody's come out and said anything, but I know some of you are thinking it. I know it's true. Don't try and deny it.
Didja ever have one of those days where you just wanted to punch something, but never really know why? Yeah, me too.
Wow, I didn't notice how late it is. I better get to bed. Peace out.

Happy Sunday to all my faithful readers (all three of you). It's about time I updated. I need to stop slacking off.
Went to an indy wrestling show this evening. The cruiserweight match was really good (including an insane spot where one of the wrestlers almost landed on some fans in the front row after being knocked off the top rope), but the rest of the show seemed, I don't know... underwhelming. But it was the best I could have expected for six bucks. It was weird seeing one of the wrestlers on the show attacking guys with farm machinery and getting dollar bills stapled to his forehead in a backyard wrestling video a few months ago, and now he's the indy fed's cruiserweight champ. Maybe it's because his dad is the promoter, I dunno.
Wowie wowie wow. Those are some good looking figures. And I don't know where Rob got the idea that I'd wash your car if you bought me these. If you get me these, you'll get a friendly smile and a handshake (if you're lucky).
That's all for now. Until I return, courage.
Monday, December 1, 2003; 1:43 a.m.
You know, I haven't updated in a week. That's a long time. Wait, what am I talking about? There was a period where a once-a-week update from me would have been good, so one update a week is perfectly fine.
I hope everybody had a good Thanksgiving. And I hope my Canadian readers had a good Thursday. Me, my folks, sister, and sister's boyfriend went to a Cracker Barrel for lunch on Thanksgiving. No turkey, but a darn good meal regardless. And all this time I thought Cracker Barrel was all about good breakfasts. We also ran into some extended family members, too. And in a strange turn of events, the waitresses sat us and the other family members next to each other. Pure coincidence, I swear.
Boomerang makes me the happiest Looney Tunes fan of all. Every weekend this past month, they've been showing nothing but old-school Warner Brothers cartoons. The only complaint I have is that I have yet to see "The Barber of Seville," which is my all-time favorite. I love Looney Tunes, I do. ("Then why don't you marry it?") I just might.
I can't speak for everybody, but if S'mores Pop-Tarts aren't one of the best things ever invented, I don't know what is.
You know, I can't think of anything else to say for this update. It's been a month since I've done one, but this update's "SotU" is "Haunted" by Poe. Wonderful song, it is. And on that note, I shall bid you adieu. Buh-bye.
Sunday, November 23, 2003; 7:51 p.m.
Saw Gothika last night. Not bad, but not great. After I saw it, I said to myself it was like Stir Of Echoes and Blair Witch 2 had a drunken one night stand, and I still think that. It was good up until the end, which I thought was a great big load of stupid. Robert Downey also felt like mumbling unintelligibly at the beginning of the movie, which I thought sucked. It's not a bad movie, but it just felt "eh."
Being at the theater last night was an odd experience. Apparently, the theater was having confusion over which screen the movie was playing on. Ushers bounced us around between two seperate screens, apparently unable to decide between seating us in the screens showing Gothika and the screen supposedly showing Elf. The stupid theater needs to get these things straight. And when the movie finally started, there was one girl sitting in the back of the theater that screamed at the top of her lungs every time there was a "jump scare." Even if it wasn't that scary at all, she'd scream. It was funny the first two or three times, but a million times over two hours just made me and everyone else in the theater want to strangle her. I mean, if you're gonna scream every time, then you might want to start avoiding the horror genre. It's not rocket science.
You know, I saw Home Alone on TV twice today on two different channels. Thanksgiving isn't for another four days, and they're already starting with the Christmas stuff. Most of the stores I go to had five or six aisles of Christmas stuff up at Halloween, while having only one aisle of Halloween stuff. I like Christmas, but this is insanity.
Not much else for today, so I'm out.
Saturday, November 22, 2003; 3:30 a.m.
This update is brought to you by Camp Kill Yourself, better known as CKY.
CKY performed "Escape From Hellview" on Craig Kilborn's talk show last night, so that made me a happy boy. I'm a CKY fan, and I enjoyed seeing them get some TV play. Download some of their MP3s or buy their CDs, because they're quality music.
Regardless, I've got three new updates at "Sutton At The Movies." This time, it's the entire Terminator trilogy. Yep, all three of them. I worked all week on them, so I hope you read and enjoy.
It's really early in the morning, so I'm gonna go to sleep. Peace out.
Thursday, November 13, 2003; 4:28 a.m.
Wow, it's early in the morning. I just wanted to share that I've written a new review for American Psycho, which you can read by heading to the "Sutton At The Movies" link, or clicking HERE. Now go to sleep.
Tuesday, November 11, 2003; 8:32 p.m.
I just noticed I forgot to add a link to They Live. Oops. You can read that HERE. Actually, I did add it, but just forgot to upload that particular page with everything else. Make sense? I hope so.
Saturday, November 8, 2003; 2:25 p.m.
Saw The Matrix: Revolutions last night. It's not bad, just some questions didn't feel like they were answered. What happens to everybody that was still plugged into the Matrix in the machines' farms? Where did the ghost twins from Reloaded go? Why is the French dude with the funny name hanging out in a leather bar? What's the point of the Train Man? I just don't get it. I need to go buy the Reloaded DVD (and maybe The Animatrix too) so things will make more sense, I guess.
There's a new review up at "Sutton At The Movies," this time it's They Live. I'll get around to Cube 2 and Day Of The Dead whenever I feel like it.
Not much else is up for today, so I shall say goodbye for now.
Wednesday, November 5, 2003; 11:42 p.m.
You may have noticed that I've deleted the "pictures" page, and everything that was on it. I only deleted them for the simple fact that I didn't think I really needed them on the site anymore. They just took up space, and I don't think anybody looks at them anyway. I'll keep the Horror Survival Guide up, just because.
While I'm thinking for it, I mentioned a few weeks ago that if you'd like to recommend a film for me to review out of my DVD collection, feel free to do so. That still stands. You can contact me via e-mail, AIM, or Delphi (if you're one of my Blog Nation contemporaries). You don't have to if you don't want to, but if you want to, you can. I really don't care either way. I've got plans to review They Live, Dawn Of The Dead, and Cube 2, but I figure I need to do something besides horror movies. Right? Exactly.
I also wanted to go see The Matrix: Revolutions tonight, but didn't. Probably this weekend. Who releases movies on Wednesdays, anyway? It's much more convenient to release them on Fridays or Saturdays. Stupid Warner Brothers. I also won't get to see Kill Bill: Volume 1 until the home video release, since the only theater within sixty miles stopped showing it yesterday to squeeze in Revolutions. Stupid butthole theater.
For those of you interested, I've got a good link to the Freddy Vs. Jason DVD specs (thanks to FridayThe13thFilms.com). Just CLICK HERE, and you'll get all the info. But if I know most of my regular readers, I'm the only one that cares. Lousy no-good so-and-so's.
Anyway, I have nothing else to talk about at the moment, just Family Guy on TV. That's pretty much it. Have fun doing whatever you were doing before you came here, because I'm done for the day.
Monday, November 3, 2003; 8:27 p.m.
There's been some talk at various stopping points in the Blog Nation about the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake. One of my contemporaries said today: "That was the worst movie I've ever seen in my life. I didn't watch half of it because it was just too gross and graphic. I thought it was really pointless." Uh, B, that was the movie's intent: it's not supposed to have a point. It's just supposed to mess with your head and make you sick. Besides, you wouldn't go to see a movie titled "Chainsaw Massacre" and expect anything less than senseless violence. It's like watching Titanic and expecting the boat NOT to sink. With movies like this, I think it's scarier when there's no reason or purpose behind it, just because most homocidal maniacs don't have a reason or purpose for their actions. And B, if you want to see bloody movies, rent Cannibal Holocaust, The Last House On The Left, I Spit On Your Grave, or any Italian zombie movie. Look up pictures on the Net, if you want. You'll be shocked and astounded. Want to know how shocked and astounded? Cannibal Holocaust is supposedly so disgusting that even I refuse to watch it (though apparently no store in North America will carry it).
Oh, and thinking of it, B, you might be interested in THIS LINK. I think you could use some of the advice on that website.

I enjoyed Halloween very much last night. At a relaxing 75 degrees, it wasn't as cold as last year, which is a good thing. The only bad thing is that some kids don't take pride in Halloween. I saw at least two or three kids not wearing costumes at all. Sure, I don't live in a high-rolling neighborhood, but come on. How much does Halloween makeup cost? A buck, buck-fifty? Geez, they could buy a cheap costume at Wal-Mart for five dollars. Maybe I take Halloween a little too seriously, I don't know. Methinks I have serious issues. Also unfortunately, there weren't any crazy-go-nuts parties. If there were, I didn't get invited to any. Such is the life of the unpopular one.
I meant to do this yesterday, but I'd also like to point out the "Horror Movie Survival Guide." I've added a few rules, cut some rules, and generally did a little work on it.
Not much left to say today, as of right now. Just watching Anger Management on pay-per-view, and that's about it. Now go outside and get a life.
Friday, October 31, 2003; 3:22 p.m.
Happy Halloween! One of my favorite holidays of the year, bar none. Plenty of horror movies on TV, and free candy from strangers. How can anyone not like that?
Anyway, my plans for today are to hand out plenty of candy with my uncle (as I do every year), then come home and watch horror movies all night. Too bad nobody around here throws Halloween parties, because I'd be there. But the bad thing is I don't have any friends, so I probably wouldn't be invited. And if I threw one, nobody'd come. Oh well, I'm not going to be down today. I've got my horror movies and the chance of free candy.
Anyway, I'm out. Gotta get ready for tonight. I've got Halloween III on TV, and I'm blaring Mandy Moore's "Candy" (a fitting song, in my opinion), and I'm set for the evening. :)
Thursday, October 30, 2003; 10:48 p.m.
One more update at "Sutton At The Movies." It's the original 1974 Texas Chainsaw Massacre. I'm also thinking of doing a review of Roddy Piper's epic They Live, which I taped last night during AMC's "Monsterfest" movie marathon. Anyway, the "SatM" link is at the top of the page, so read and enjoy. :)
Tuesday, October 28, 2003; 3:41 p.m.
New review up at "Sutton At The Movies," this time it's Return of the Living Dead III. I caught it on the Sci-Fi Channel on Sunday night and thought I'd review it.
Tuesday, October 28, 2003; 12:47 a.m.
The "I Love The [insert decade here]" shows on VH1 are the most addictive things ever. The only downside is they've been airing "I Love The 80s Strikes Back" over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over until I just get sick of it. Being a child of both the 80s and the 90s, I didn't have that much of a connection to "I Love The 70s," even though I thought it was plenty cool. But with the two "I Love The 80s" shows, I get to relive all kinds of stuff that I loved, stuff I forgot about, stuff I was too middle-class to have, and stuff that I thought was crap 20 years ago (and are still crap now).
I just downloaded the title track to Randy Savage's rap album "Be A Man." I really don't know to say other than this is very, very funny. Who told him doing a rap song about Hulk Hogan was a good idea? I need to buy this album, just to prove that it actually existed. I don't even really like rap music, and I want it. It's too bad for words.
Watch "Family Guy" on Cartoon Network. It owns you.
So I'm watching the remake of The Fly on the Sci-Fi Channel right now, and it's the bee's knees. A million times better than the original one, even though it had Vincent Price and the legendary "help me! help me!" scene. I'll take the remake over the original any day. Why? The original has a dude in a fly mask, and the remake has the infinately cooler Brundlefly. Too bad the remake had the less-than-stellar sequel, even if Princess Vespa from Spaceballs was in it.
I still want to see Kill Bill, but just can't ever find the five bucks to get a movie ticket. I just want to see it so Kill Bill 2 will make sense if I decide to see that. I'll still end up buying the DVDs even if I don't see them. Quentin Tarantino rules.
The DirecTV fan letter commercials are awesome. JUMPING GEHOSEPHAT YEEHAW!! Laurence Fishburne should say that in his next movie.
I don't have much else to say for now, so I'll be saying goodbye. Goodbye.
Sunday, October 26, 2003; 10:27 p.m.
My little bro Gary is back again, this time until Tuesday. I don't mind, but he seems more energetic than he's been in the past. I don't mind, but I'm not as energetic as a three-year-old.
I'm also watching MTV right now. The new Viva La Bam show (starring Jackass star Bam Margera, his family, and his various cohorts) looks really good, and Wildboyz (also starring two Jackasses, Steve-O and Chris Pontius) hasn't been that bad so far. I know for sure I'm going to enjoy Viva La Bam, since I'm a big fan of Bam's crew. Any show featuring Tony Hawk and various pro skateboarders installing a giant skate park into someone's house is good enough for me. I'm not even a skating fan, but I'm digging the vibe.
Song for the evening is Daniel Lioneye's "The King of Rock 'N Roll" (the Viva La Bam theme song), and I'm out for the night.
Thursday, October 23, 2003; 5:34 p.m.
Rob T, you are my hero. Have I mentioned that lately? He is, dear readers. For he gives me reasons to have all the useless trivia stuck in my brain. Thanks for making the useless trivia not quite so useless. Though mocking my geekness will get you nowhere.
There's more to this update than sucking up. Honest! There's another review up at "Sutton At The Movies," this time it's 28 Days Later. Read it and enjoy. And just to note, I rated it four and one-half stars, though Tripod for some reason is saying three and one-half. Stupid Tripod.
Sunday, October 19, 2003; 8:41 p.m.
Well, just a half hour ago I got some news that I'd been expecting to hear for some time. My dad found our dog dead on our carport. I'm sad, but not surprised. She'd been sick for quite some time, and just looked like bones with fur.
I worry about my dad right now. He was very partial to our departed canine, and before I came in here and started typing this up, he started choking up. And my dad almost never cries. I've only seen him cry once in 20 years. I just don't know what else to say right now. I... I'm out for right now.
Sunday, October 19, 2003; 2:00 a.m.
I'd like to direct you to a new link at the top of the page, which reads "Sutton At The Movies." That's where I'm housing my movie reviews. I've got some up right now, and if you want to read them, be my guest. I'll try and add some more in the future, and if you'd like to request that I review something out of my DVD collection, you know how to contact me. Feedback is good, so if you want to tell me what to think, tell me. Constructive criticism is helpful.
Now go to sleep.

Saw the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake last night. Having never seen the original in its entirity prior to seeing the remake, I can officially say that the movie isn't bad. It's not exactly scary, but spooky. The movie is good, but it just feels... hollow, I guess. I really don't know what it is about it. Maybe it's because the movie's a remake, I guess. It gets two stars on my scale.
Fun story: I happened to be watching the credits after the movie, and at one point it says something about actual events inspiring parts of the movie. I absent-mindedly said out loud that it was fake, and two girls, who couldn't be any older than 14 or 15, that happened to be in the theater said, "It's fake?! The TV ads said it's real!" So I told them the story of Ed Gein, and they were actually relieved to discover that Leatherface and the crazy family isn't real. I also happened to notice that somebody had their two young kids and a baby with them. Who brings two little kids and a baby to see The Texas Chainsaw Massacre? Do they see the ads and figure, "Hey, the title alone suggests it's rip-roaring fun for children of all ages!" Sigh. People are stupid.
Coincidentally, I happened to be in Wal-Mart after the movie and found the original movie on DVD for 15 bucks. I didn't even think Wal-Mart would have it, so I was a happy fat man. I've watched part of it and I like what I've seen.
You might also notice the new additions to the Blatant Movie Shilling, thanks to trailers I've seen recently: The Butterfly Effect and a remake of Dawn Of The Dead. Universal Pictures doesn't have the Dawn Of The Dead site up yet (though that's the correct URL), but you can find the trailer by clicking HERE. Watch it in slow motion, and you'll see Tom Savini in a cameo as a Los Angeles cop. I thought that was pretty neat, considering he did the effects for the original Dawn Of The Dead (including having a cameo), and he directed the remake of Night Of The Living Dead back in 1990. Only geeks would know or care about that, and I can proudly say that I'm a geek. As for The Butterfly Effect, I saw the trailer before The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and I think it doesn't look too bad. It definately shows potental. You may have also noticed I added The Matrix: Revolutions to the list as well. Yeah, I figure I needed more non-horror movies on the list, and why not the third Matrix movie? I just hope they don't show Keanu Reeves's naked butt in this one. Keanu's own private Idaho isn't something I want to see in a movie.
Wow, this update ended up being longer than I expected. I'm out for now, and I might be back in the future. Soundtrack for the update is David Bowie's "Something In The Air," and now it's time for you go outside and do something. See ya.

Yo to the usual suspects, and a big hello to those of you poor souls that have stumbled across the place via Google.
With the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake coming out on Friday, it's been hard to miss the tagline: "Inspired By A True Story." How many of you out there think it's really real? C'mon, you can be honest with me. Well, I hate burst your bubbles, but it's not true. Leatherface never existed, and there never was a family of cannibals in deepest darkest Texas in the 70s. Turns out some of the little quirks in the original movie were inspired by a Wisconsin serial killer named Ed Gein. You can get plenty of information about him HERE and HERE. To sum it all up, he went crazy after his mother died, and killed some people. He sometimes wore their skin, and used body parts to make various household items (such as the top of a skull used as a cereal bowl, and bones used as legs for tables and chairs). The sicko went on to inspire the killers in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Psycho, and The Silence of the Lambs.
I just wanted to clear that little detail up. It doesn't bother me, but it does. Know what I mean? Oh well. Anyway, I'm out of here. The rerun of Boy Meets World on The Disney Channel is calling me. Peace.

Remember how I say I buy too many DVDs? I bought Willard tonight. A remake of a 1971 movie, this one stars Crispin Glover, R. Lee Ermey, and Laura Elena Harring, and it's not a bad little movie at all. I unfortunately missed it when it came out back in March, but now that I've seen it, I can say that I wish it would have been a bigger hit. It's a really good, strange movie. Given the right roles, I think Crispin Glover could become the next cult movie star. I know he's gained some fans through his rather eccentric books and CDs, as well as his roles in Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter and the first Back To The Future movie. But back to the movie. I liked it. Thumbs up. If you like rats or weird movies, go rent it. If you don't like rats or weird movies, then perhaps this isn't the movie for you. That's sad, because it's a darn good movie.
Tonight's song is "Ben" by Michael Jackson. That song's special because 1.) it was the theme song to the film Ben, which was the sequel to the original Willard, and 2.) it was featured twice in the remake (once by Michael and once by Crispin Glover himself).
I'm going to bed, see y'all later.

Yes, I've added Freddy Vs. Jason back under the "blatant movie shilling," as I've heard from good sources that it'll be released in January as a video and two-disc Platinum Edition DVD. As far as extras go, I've heard that it'll be a two-disc set, featuring two commentaries (one from director Ronny Yu, the other from stars Robert "Freddy" Englund and Ken "Jason" Kirzinger), music videos, deleted/alternate scenes (including the original ending and various CGI things that didn't quite look right), the standard trailers, and various featurettes on things like the effects and stunts/fights. According to Yu, it'll also include documentaries on the evolution of both Freddy and Jason, and how their fight came to be. It sounds like it's gonna be one awesome DVD. If it were up to me, I'd make sure to include all of the TV commercials, and I'd do a commentary involving the main cast. Maybe that's just me. But you can guarantee that I'll gladly plunk down my 20 bones for this sucker come January. But you knew that, right? Considering I saw it five times, that should be a given. Right? Right.
I tried to pick up the DVD for the Willard remake yesterday, but the Wal-Mart I went to didn't have it, and the Blockbuster and Video Gallery I went to only had it available for rental. I haven't even seen it, but I want it. Crispin Glover is one of those guys that no matter what kind of character he plays, whatever movie he's in, it'll be memorable. If you've seen the first Back To The Future, the fourth Friday The 13th, or the two Charlie's Angels movies, he'll probably be stuck in your mind, at least for a little while. Given the right roles, he could be the next cult movie star. And it's a plus that he's proud of his ties to Jason. :)
And for those of you in the Blog Nation, I would like to forward you to The Atoll, because none of you seem to love it anymore. It needs your love and your sympathy.
I'm out for now. The song (and how long has it been since the last one?) is "Once In A Lifetime" by Talking Heads, and I'm saying bye.

Saw Out Of Time yesterday night. As per the course, Denzel Washington takes an otherwise bleh movie and makes it good. That man earned his Oscar, doggone it. It's not exactly great, but Eva Mendes is cute, and Denzel is his usual awesome self. Personally, it'll take something huge to top Training Day and Fallen as Denzel's best work.
Not a whole lot else to talk about today. Washington County's annual Sorghum Festival was this weekend, and there's not much about that to mention. For those of you who are uninformed, the Sorghum Festival is basically a town festival, with an emphisis towards tobacco and sorghum (which, to my understanding, is the evil cousin of molasses). Really, there's not a whole lot to see at it, especially this year. Outside of the car show today and the parade yesterday, it was bleh. Seems like everything about the weekend was bleh.
Anyway, that's pretty much it. Maybe I'll have another update some other time.

Today's both Hump Day and Rabbit Rabbit Day. What's Rabbit Rabbit Day? Superstition goes that if you say "rabbit rabbit" as soon as you get out of bed on the first day of the month, you'll have good luck all month. It's also the first day of October, which makes me happy. I love October. Maybe it's because I'm a big Halloween junkie, I don't know.
There's not a lot to talk about right now. Just watching Aliens on TV. Did you know they're making an Alien Vs. Predator movie? Yeah, it's supposed to come out next year. According to IMDb.com, here's the plot: "Hoping to lure a Predator clan to Antarctica using Alien eggs, a rogue team of scientists are caught in an intergalactic war between the two extremely violent species." Fox has just recently cast Lance Henriksen to play a role in it. You might remember him as Bishop, the android in Aliens and Alien 3. He'll be playing a millionaire sponsoring the research team. Oddly enough, the working title for the first Predator movie was "Alien Hunter." Strange but apparently true.
Remember a few months ago when the American Film Institute did their list of the Top 100 Movie Heroes and Villians? They did the top 50 heroes and top 50 villains and aired it on ABC, hosted by Arnold Schwarzenegger (who was actually on both lists for The Terminator and Terminator 2). Hannibal Lecter from The Silence of the Lambs and Atticus Finch from To Kill A Mockingbird topped the list. Well, around that same time, I did my own list of my 100 favorite movie villians. I like villians more than I do heroes, maybe because there wouldn't be heroes if it weren't for villians. So I've decided to now post that list here, with some minor alterations due to my own personal preference. Read and enjoy. :)

I also have to make some notes about things: I know Jason appeared in the first Friday The 13th movie, and that he was played by someone different in every movie. But Jason was the full-fledged villian for the first time in Part 2, where he was played by Warrington Gilette. Personally, I prefer C.J. Graham in Part 6, Kane Hodder in Part 7 through Jason X, and Ken Kirzinger in Freddy Vs. Jason, but that's just me. I also know that Brian Cox played Hannibal Lector before Anthony Hopkins ever did, but Sir Hopkins played almost a different Hannibal. Brian Cox didn't get a Hannibal trilogy, did he? I also know that the killers in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and House of 1000 Corpses were members of families, but Leatherface, Baby, and Otis were the most memorable. None of you care about these little minute details, but I do, darn it. Sue me.
Well, that's all for now. I don't have much to say. Gee, I started writing this thing two hours ago. Aliens is almost over now. That's all for this one, and I'm gone. See ya.

Well, Gary left today and things just aren't the same. He just seemed to brighten things up when he was around, and now he's not here. Something feels like it's missing. Sigh.
There's not a whole lot left to talk about. Just can't think of anything. Maybe I'll think of something later, I don't know. I'm out for now.
Saturday, September 27, 2003; 9:21 p.m.
Holy poop, two updates within a 24-hour period. I don't think that's ever happened.
Little Gary is slowly killing me. I don't think I'm ever gonna have kids. Too much freaking work. He's almost TOO active, and poor me is just going insane from it.
I just realized something today, too. Remember when I said that Freddy Vs. Jason was the only movie I'd seen more than twice in theaters? I forgot I saw Spider-Man three times. I forgot about that third time, since I was the only one in the theater, and I got bored and decided to do some theater hopping halfway through it. I really only saw Spider-Man the third time because there was nothing else I wanted to see at the time.
I also decided to pick up the DVD of a low-budget indy movie called Haggard, which was made by the crew of the CKY videos. I'm gonna watch it a few times before I can really get an opinion on it, so I'll get back to you later. Gary's calling my attention, so I'll post this and get out of here. Later.
Saturday, September 27, 2003; 2:22 a.m.
Remember the other day when I said I might go see The Rundown? I did, and I liked it. If that whole wrestling thing wasn't in the way, The Rock could be the next Arnold Schwarzenegger. Then again, he hasn't been around wrestling at all since March, so what do I know? I'd give the movie three stars. Not great, but a fun way to kill some time.
I also said I'd try and get the Texas Chainsaw Massacre DVD, but the stupid Sam Goody in Danville didn't have it. They had the second movie in the series (which stars Dennis Hopper, who's too awesome for words), but I decided to save my money. I wasted my good time for the last three or four weekends and didn't find it, and I'm ever so pissed. But they're releasing another version of the movie three days before the remake comes out, and I think I'll just wait until that one comes out. I can wait three more weeks, can't I? I guess I'll have to, especially since Amazon has it listed as under "special order" and I don't feel like Ebaying it. Stupid Sam Goody. If you happen to hear a story about a 21-year-old kid throwing bricks though a Sam Goody window, it WASN'T ME. ;)
Eh, no sense in moaning about it. I need to go get some sleep, so I'm out for the night. Peace.
Thursday, September 25, 2003; 11:34 p.m.
Ever been around an active three-year-old? I have. My bro Gary D. (who I last mentioned in the post dated March 10, 2002) is gonna be spending the weekend with us. I love Gary to death, but this kid is so active I feel like I need a caffine and sugar IV to keep up with him. It's gonna be a loooooooooong weekend.
Other than Gary visiting, not a whole lot is going on. I might go try and see The Rundown this weekend, and I'd also like to get out and pick up the DVD of the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre. I've never seen it all the way through (and even then, it was an IFC special featuring Tobe Hooper and Gunner Hansen's audio commentary), but I'd like to own it. I want to see it before the remake comes out, and that'll be in just a few weeks. I wanted to buy The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation, which is the fourth film in the series, but I can't find it anywhere. Wal-Mart used to have it for $5.88, but I can't find it there anymore. The movie isn't very good, but seeing Matthew McConaughey and Renée Zellweger in a movie like this is priceless. Yes, I said Matthew McConaughey and Renée Zellweger in a Texas Chainsaw Massacre. McConaughey is awesome in it, and the fact that his character has a spastic prosthetic leg controlled by various remote controls only makes him cooler.
Anyway, that's all for now. Song is "Buried Alive By Love" by HIM, and I'm out.
Monday, September 22, 2003; 12:00 a.m.
It's my sister's birthday today, at the ripe old age of 17. Happy birthday, sis. Remind me to buy you a beer when you turn 21. :)
Wednesday, September 18, 2003; 11:56 a.m.
Whee, a post!
Last month, two of my colleagues in the Blog Nation (I'm looking at you, Butch and Penny) decided to contribute what they referred to as "The Soundtrack of a Life." So therefore, after weeks of discussing it with me, myself, and I, here's twenty songs that I'll call "The Soundtrack of L.M. Sutton, Esquire."
Look for it at record stores, CD burners, and MP3 players near you. :)
Monday, September 15, 2003; 12:57 p.m.
Now that Freddy Vs. Jason has dropped out of the top ten, I'm gonna remove it from the "blatant movie shilling" links above. However, once I hear a DVD release date, it's going back up. No real other movies strike my fancy right now, so I'll leave the Cabin Fever and Texas Chainsaw Massacre links by themselves for now.
I bought the new "Wrestlemania XIX" video game for my Gamecube, and it's a drastic improvement over last year's model. I hate the fact that they couldn't license all of the wrestlers' theme songs (some of them use "real" music, instead of stuff produced by WWE) and the story mode kinda sucks, but I'll take what I can get. But for now, I'll give the game a thumbs up.
Wow, I just noticed that in a few weeks, the Blog Of 1000 Corpses will be two years old. I'm a proud papa. :)
I really need to get a life. I never have anything to talk about. I also don't know if I'll do that movie review blog or not, since movie reviews are a lot of work. It may not look like it, but they are. But I'm sure I'll work something out; I always do. And if I don't work something out, eh. Who cares. Am I right, people?
I've also come to the realization that I watch too many movies. Very often, I catch myself being reminded of movie lines or scenes, thanks to random everyday occurances. Pop culture has infected my brain, and I don't know if that's good or bad. I hope good, but everybody thinks I'm weird because of it. Weird can be good, can't it? Can't it?!
Your song is Seether's "Out Of My Way," and I am out for now. Word life.
Saturday, September 13, 2003; 1:13 a.m.
Sorry. I just got back from seeing Cabin Fever in Lexington and I had to get it out of my system. You'll understand it when you see it. I thought it was a fun movie, like one of those late-night Creature Feature drive-in movies they used to show on Monstervision. Anybody but me remember that show? Anybody? Bueller? I enjoyed the heck out of Cabin Fever, and if there's a sequel, you'll find me in the front of the line. I'll give this one 3½ stars out of five, and it'll be a definate DVD purchase for me. And make sure to stay all the way through the credits too! There's more stuff after the credits.
I also picked up the novelization of Freddy Vs. Jason at a Joseph-Beth Bookstore before the movie. I've got a sickness, and the only remedy is Freddy Vs. Jason! :)
And finally, I'd like to send my sympathies to the families of Johnny Cash and John Ritter. We've lost two men that were perfect at what they did, and as long as we've got CD's and reruns of Three's Company, we'll always have them.
Your song for the evening is a little bit of "Survivor" by Destiny's Child, and I'm outta here for the evening.
Sunday, September 7, 2003; 7:33 p.m.
You guys are probably gonna think I'm crazy, but I saw Freddy Vs. Jason for the fifth time yesterday. It's the only movie I've seen more than twice during its theatrical run, so you know it's gotta be special to me. But I'm not as crazy as you may assume; I've chatted with guys who've seen it seven or eight times, and one guy who's seen it ten times. That is what I like to call overkill, though I'd probably see it ten times if I could afford it. I'm such a geek.
I also bought Graeme Revell's score for Freddy Vs. Jason at Wal-Mart yesterday. If you're having a Halloween party, either buy this CD or find it online. Great Halloween mood music, it is. Probably my favorite track so far is titled "Stoner Creature," which is the music playing when the stoner that wishes he was Jason Mewes sees the bong-smoking Freddy worm that looks like it was ripped off from Alice In Wonderland. The track "Freddy In The Real World" is awesome as well.
That's all I really have going on right now. I'm thinking of starting up a site just for movie reviews (since I watch enough movies), so if you have an opinion on that, you know how to contact me if you want to share said opinion.
"Song To The Siren" by This Mortal Coil. It's an
absolutely wonderful song to chill out to. It's so good, they
used it in the trailer for the Texas Chainsaw Massacre
remake. I recommend downloading the MP3. It's good stuff.
Wednesday, September 3, 2003; 4:25 p.m.
After watching King Kong Vs. Godzilla last night, and being the fan of Freddy Vs. Jason that I am, I started thinking about what other movie battles we could be privy to in the future. So I present to you my ideas for what I like to call "Monstermania I."
That's all I could really think of right now. I wanted to use guys like Pinhead from Hellraiser, the Creeper from Jeepers Creepers, and Hannibal Lecter, but just didn't know how. I also had the idea of the virus from Resident Evil fighting the virus from 28 Days Later, but how would that have worked? If you'd like contributing some ideas, you know how to contact me. That's all for now. Later.
Monday, September 1, 2003; 4:58 p.m.
Ugh. Today was the most boring day ever. I hate bumming rides off people.
Me and Dad went to see Jeepers Creepers 2 last Friday. It was a totally different film from the first one, but I thought it was just as good. However, subplots are brought up (such as the sexual preference of one character being questioned, and another white character being jealous of two black characters), only to be forgotten or rarely mentioned after a certain point. Outside of the stupid points, I liked it.
No song for tonight, so I'll just say goodbye.
Monday, August 25, 2003; 12:07 p.m.
Want to know how goofy I am? I saw Freddy Vs. Jason twice more today. I went to the Frankfort Wal-Mart with my mom (because I didn't have anything better to do today), and I got kinda bored, so I walked to the nearby theater. "Nearby" can be defined as "around a mile away." Since I don't have a car and my mom was working, I walked to the theater. Sure, walking a mile doesn't seem much, but imagine if you walked a two-mile round trip twice in 90-degree heat. I also happened to be wearing my good Skechers dress shoes (why, I don't know), and I ended up with nasty blisters on my ankles. It doesn't need to be said that blisters are the opposite of good. My knees and calves hurt like crazy, the blisters are painful, it was a blazing inferno outside, and I just don't feel all that great. At least I got to see Freddy Vs. Jason twice.
Anyway, I've now seen Freddy Vs. Jason four times. FOUR TIMES. I've never seen any movie while in the theater more than twice, but this movie is special. I've also updated my review of Freddy Vs. Jason. The rating remains the same, but I just added some more detailed opinions. You can either click the link at the update below this one, or you can just click HERE.
This update's song is "(We Were) Electrocute" by Type O Negative, and I'm off to bed. Good night.
Monday, August 18, 2003; 11:21 p.m.
Just wanted to post my review of Freddy Vs. Jason. Click HERE to read it.
Sunday, August 17, 2003; 8:14 p.m.
August 15th has come and gone, and Freddy Vs. Jason is theaters now. I went to see it in Bardstown with my dad, then again in Campbellsville with my homey Moses on Friday night. Ten years of waiting paid off, as it was the best Elm Street and Friday movie I've seen in a long time. It was a wonderful reward for fans of both cinematic stalkers, especially those who've been in it for the long haul. Lots of little references to the past films make it enjoyable for the hardcore fans, and there's enough history explained for the casual fans who don't know a lot about Freddy or Jason.
I'll give Freddy Vs. Jason a detailed review soon, but I'll tell you my opinions right now. The acting isn't as bad as one would expect. Monica Keena and Jason Ritter are great as the heroine and her boyfriend, and despite having one awful scene, Kelly Rowland far exceeded my expectations. The two fight scenes between Freddy and Jason are unbelieveably awesome. Whoever choreographed these fights deserves a round of applause because they're out of this world.
But on to Saturday night. Me and Moses went to Lexington for a WWE house show. Highlight of the night was bumping into Kevin Nash and Eric Bischoff at the bar next door to Rupp Arena. Unfortunately, two things kept me from getting autographs: 1.) I didn't have a pen, and 2.) since the bar was in a hotel lobby, the employees told everyone that didn't have a room there to leave or they'd call the cops. The pictures I took didn't come out all that well, since our seats were way in the back and I didn't have a good zoom on my camera, but Moses and I had a good time.
I'm gonna close this update for now. Your song is "How Can I Live" by Ill Niño (Freddy Vs. Jason's theme song), and I'll be saying goodbye.
Thursday, August 14, 2003; 6:34 p.m.
With Freddy Vs. Jason being released tomorrow, I thought I'd get everybody prepared and do something fun. For the last week, I've been writing up my reviews of the Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday The 13th films, and the day before the release of the biggest scary movie ever, I'm posting them here for you, my readers. You can read the Friday The 13th reviews HERE, and the Nightmare on Elm Street reviews HERE. (NOTE ADDED 10-19-03: these links are dead now.)
The song is "Beginning of the End" by Spineshank (from the Freddy Vs. Jason soundtrack), and I'm done until the weekend.

Yes, I know I don't post very much here. But when I do, I do.
I picked up the soundtrack to Freddy Vs. Jason and the DVD of House of 1000 Corpses today. I haven't really gotten to sit down and listen to the CD, but what I have heard ranges from good to okay to "eh." Meanwhile, you can read my review of House of 1000 Corpses in my April 24 update. On the DVD side, the menus are worth the price of admission alone. If there's a word that's better than "awesome," use it here. The extras are a little underwhelming, and I wish they'd released the NC-17 version, but I'll take what I can get. Besides, word around the campfire is there's gonna be a sequel, so the NC-17 cut could be released to hype the sequel. That's how Hollywood works. I'll probably buy a second version too, just so I can compare the NC-17 and R-rated versions.
Well, I can't think of much else to say other than GO SEE FREDDY VS. JASON ON FRIDAY. I MEAN IT. This update's song is a cover of "Who's Gonna Mow Your Grass?" by Buck Owens. It's on the House of 1000 Corpses soundtrack, so it's a little fitting. I'm outta here, so you people behave youselves and go see Freddy Vs. Jason on Friday. See you sometime this weekend for another update.

Got up at 6:30 this morning, and headed to Danville with my dad to get my mom's car looked at. There's some kind of messed-up gasket in the engine or something, and it's gonna take three hours of work to fix. My mom's gonna go back to Danville in the morning and get that checked out.
After we got the car looked at today, me and Dad went driving around. I stopped at two bookstores, Wal-Mart, and Sam Goody before discovering what I was looking for at Kroger: the official Freddy Vs. Jason magazine. I'm such a geek. :)
Anyway, outside of that and a bunch of storms, there's not much else to update on, so I'll close it here by saying goodbye. Bye, all.
Saturday, August 2, 2003; 1:46 p.m.
Hey, I actually went outside and did something for once. Weird, isn't it? The outside world is a little scary, though. ;)
Anyway, I and my associate Moses went to my old stomping grounds of C-Ville to see American Wedding. If you want my honest opinion, I think it's a lot better than the first two slices of American Pie. It doesn't suffer from the loss of half of the main cast from the first two (and it doesn't even mention any of the departed but one). The movie also seems more "grown up" than the prior two films in the trilogy, which is a plus. Sure, there's plenty of potty humor (is there any other kind in the AP movies?), but it doesn't seem as juvenile as in the past. Although the film's title makes you think that the focus will be on a wedding, that's just the backdrop to give Seann William Scott's oft-quoted Stifler the reigns to own the movie as he sees fit. I give it a solid thumbs-up.
This update's background music is a fitting song, Don McLean's "American Pie." I'm outta here.

So my lady friend Krissie says I'd be a lot cooler if I updated here more often. But wouldn't you just get tired of a million posts saying "I sat on my butt and did nothing all day"? I would. Even though this blog is fully endorsed by the ghost of the Lizard King, it would just get boring,
There's not a whole lot going on lately. Just counting the days until the release of Freddy Vs. Jason, which I've been looking forward to for the last ten years. Quite a long time to wait for a movie, but hopefully, it will be worth it. It better be, or I'll hunt down every last employee of New Line Cinema and hurt them in unspeakable ways. Except for Bob Shaye, because he's one harsh dude.
And finally, I'd like to express my sadness over the loss of Bob Hope. The world has truly lost one of its greatest citizens. It's been said in the past, "When there was a war, there was Hope." And there always will be, as long as we have the memories. Thanks for the memories, Bob. We'll never forget them.

Geez, it's about time that I updated. Me and my dad went to see Johnny English tonight. He's a big fan of the "Bean" TV show that Rowan Atkinson starred in, so I think he went in expecting more than I did. I was pleasantly amused with the film. It wasn't as funny as I'd hoped, and some jokes just fell flat, but many of them were funny. Not knee-slappingly hilarious, but still funny. I'd probably give it 2½ stars out of four if I gave star ratings.
While I have your attention, I'd like to direct you to the links page. There are several fine sites there, including several like this one. All of the other "blogs" are ran by friends of mine, so if you want to know what people I chat with do in their free time, click those little links. :)
The song is "Strong As I Am" by The Prime Movers (from the film Manhunter), and I'll say goodbye.

Updatery! Huzzah! I hope everybody had a safe Fourth of July.
You know, I think I see too many movies. I saw Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines on Friday, and I thought it rocked. Not as good as T2, but still good. While the lack of James Cameron's direction, Linda Hamilton's trademark role of "Sarah Connor," and Brad Fiedel's awesome score might seem like a down note, the film still holds up finely. Arnold Schwarzenegger is still his awesome self, and Nick Stahl is a welcome replacement for Eddie Furlong in the role of "John Connor." Claire Danes is a fine addition to the Terminator universe, but while Kristanna Loken's portrayal of the T-X is respectable, she simply doesn't command the screen like Arnold's evil Terminator or Robert Patrick's T-1000. And I also have to give the movie a thumbs-up for having such a ending that goes against Hollywood's typical happy ending.
Finally, I'd like to wish a (belated) happy birthday to my good friend Krissie, who celebrated seventeen years of life yesterday. Just think, Krissie: one more year and you're 18. ;)
In honor of Krissie's birthday, this update's song is "17" by Mandy Moore. Thinking of it, I doubt Mandy sings that song anymore, since she's 19. These things happen, I guess.

Welcome back to my site! There's really nothing like it in the online weblog/softcore pornography medium.
I think one of the main reasons for this update is because Penny said she was lonely in Blogland. I apologize, Penny, but sometimes life just isn't that exciting around here. I don't write haikus or enjoy the color pink. I may be somewhat blonde, but some people are more blonde than I will ever be. I am not an angry black man, a crazy Texan, or a resident of New Hampshire. I am just me. Love me for that. You can do that, right? I know that you can.
So while you're here, how about I share some random thoughts? You want to hear them? Sweet!
If "the clap" became an epidemic, would it be a case of widespread applause?
That's all I've got for now, folks. Thank you for making me think to update the site, Penny. This update is for you. I'm gonna leave you in a dancing mood, so blare "The Safety Dance" by Men Without Hats and shake a tail feather! Peace, I be outta here.
Saturday, June 28, 2003; 1:54 p.m.
Hey folks, I saw another movie! Want my review? No? Too bad, you're gonna get it.
I went to Lexington to see a neato British flick called 28 Days Later. The film begins with a group of animal activists attempting to release a pack of monkeys from cages. Their handler presses that they are infected with a highly contagious virus called "the rage," but the activists set one of the monkeys loose anyway. The monkey starts raising some pissed-off monkey hell, and then we cut to black. Twenty-eight days later, a naked guy by the name of Jim awakens in an abandoned London hospital. He puts on some clothes and starts roaming around London, which now resembles more of a ghost town than a bustling European metropolis. Jim ends up at a church filled with dead people, and a priest (and a few other folks) chase him through town. He's saved by some people wielding Molotov cocktails, who explain to Jim that "the rage" has wiped out almost all of England, and has now spread to Paris and New York City. Those that are infected become red-eyed, blood-puking psychopaths just twenty seconds after being exposed. Anyway, Jim and some of his friends eventually end up in the company of some rather shady soldiers, and it isn't long before the "fit hits the shan."
If you go in thinking that it's gonna be filled with balls-to-the-wall gore and zombies, zombies, and nothing but zombies, you're gonna be sadly disappointed. The film concentrates on the main characters more than the plight ailing them. If you're a fan of George Romero's Day of the Dead, you'll totally love the movie once the characters hook up with the soldiers. It seems that the filmmakers drew much inspiration from the second and third installments of George Romero's "Dead" trilogy, as well as a dash of Resident Evil. I do suggest seeing this film if you're a fan of low-budget horror films from foreign countries, or if you're just a fan of the horror genre.
That's my update for the night. This update's particular song is, ironically, "You Probably Shouldn't Move Here" by Five Iron Frenzy. I'm gonna go to sleep, dear readers. Sleep well. :-)
Thursday, June 26, 2003; 2:45 p.m.
So anyway, I saw The Hulk on Saturday night. Wanna know what I thought of it?
I think Hollywood may have actually produced a comic book movie WORSE than Daredevil. Really.
The scene where Bruce first turns into The Hulk is shrouded in darkness. It was kinda tough to see what he was doing aside from the occasional explosion. They probably wanted to shroud him in darkness to build up to his big reveal, but everybody already knows what Hulk looks like, so there's no point to that. But in a later scene, he saves his girlfriend from a pack of dogs with the same powers as Hulk, but it's almost totally black! I couldn't see one stinking thing that happened! Wouldn't the producers want viewers to SEE a big action scene?
So they had this plotline about Bruce suppressing this really nasty memory from when he was little. Turns out his dad tried to kill him, but when his mom tried to stop him, they fell and she landed on a butcher knife and died. I discovered today that the same thing happened in the comics, but I didn't know that prior to seeing the movie on Saturday. Having said that, I can say that I saw the whole "Mr. Banner killed Mrs. Banner" thing coming from a mile away, just 15 minutes into the movie.
Another thing I didn't get was the ending. What happens is halfway through the flick, Nick Nolte (Bruce's dad) injects himself with some serum and gets the power to absorb the essence of anything he touches. What that means is that he can touch something, and it can basically become part of him. He demonstrates this power by touching a giant piece of machinery, merging with it, then squashing a cop under it. Anyway, the Army captures Bruce and straps him into a giant electric chair so if he hulks up, they'll fry him. They let Nolte in to talk to him, and Nolte loses his temper, grabs the cord the electric chair is hooked up to, and bites it. Doing so turns him into a giant bolt of lighning. Bruce freaks out, hulks up, and Lightning Nolte grabs him. Hulk jumps through the ceiling, and lands about five miles away in a lake. Again, the scene is super dark, so it's hard to really tell what's going on. The confusion lasts around three days before, from what I can gather, that Nolte wanted to take Hulk's powers from him, so instead of fighting, Hulk just says "You want it, you got it!" Nolte makes an attempt, but something happens and Nolte explodes or something. I really don't know, and I don't think the movie did either. It's like the movie just threw up its hands and gave up. If the movie itself doesn't care, why should I?
The only real worthwhile part of the movie itself was the cameos of Stan Lee and Lou Ferrigno. Outside of that and the trailers for Terminator 3 and the new Punisher movie, I cannot in good faith recommend this movie to anyone that isn't a hardcore "Hulkamaniac." Even if you are a big fan of the big green guy, you'll be disappointed.
Thumbs in the middle, leaning down.
That's all for now. Sorry, no song for tonight, but you won't miss that, will you? G'nite.
Saturday, June 14, 2003; 2:51 p.m.
Okay, folks. Yesterday was Friday The 13th, and it was a full moon. Odd. Quick useless trivia: Yesterday marked the twenty-third anniversary of the release of the very first Friday The 13th film. Happy belated birthday to everyone's favorite machete-swinging hockey fan. :)
I also happened to see a movie yesterday, called Dumb And Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd. It had a few laughs, but frankly, it's just not all that great. It's killed by jokes that just aren't funny, and the fact that the original film is far better. And the kid that was supposed to be playing Jeff Daniels's character (I don't know his name, since I've never heard of him) was awful awful awful. That was the best guy they could get? However, the actor playing Jim Carrey's character was great, and he made the whole movie.
My mom also started babysitting this past Monday, and I didn't know the meaning of the word "tired" until now. It seems like this whole week has done nothing but sap every last bit of energy out of me. I'm never taking sleep for granted again.
That's all I've got for now, folks. Your song for this update is Vanilla Ice's "Ice Ice Baby," which was featured at the beginning of Dumb And Dumberer. Thank you for reading, and I shall see you later.
Saturday, May 31, 2003; 1:14 p.m.
Hello, and welcome to Fantasy Island! I'll be your host, Ricardo Montalban.
So anyway, my birthday was this past Thursday. How old am I? I'm twenty-one, thank you for asking. I got plenty of neato swag over the last week or so to celebrate it: the House of 1000 Corpses soundtrack, the five "CKY" DVD's (which is full of skateboarding, skits, music videos, and Jackass-style stunts), the video game "Luigi's Mansion," and the Nightmare on Elm Street box set. Fun times were to be had. :)
I also went to see Bruce Almighty on Saturday with Willy (who I hadn't seen in months) and Mo. The movie's about Bruce Nolan (played by Jim Carrey), who blames God (played by the always awesome Morgan Freeman) for everything bad in his life. So what does God do? He gives Bruce all of his powers, to see if he can do better. I thought the movie really spoke levels about how we as people treat our Creator. We take Him for granted, and often think we can do His job better. The movie proves that He ultimately knows what we're doing better than we do, because after all, He's the reason we're here to begin with. But Bruce Almighty gets my Grade-A Seal of Approval.
This update's song is "Pretending" by H.I.M., which is a very very awesome song from a very very awesome European band.
Saturday, May 17, 2003; 7:03 p.m.
Okay, so I went to see The Matrix: Reloaded tonight. Egads. When there wasn't a fight, it was all Lawrence Fishburne talking. I guess they were trying for some exposition for Revolutions, but Cowboy Curtis just talks and talks and talks, and then he's got a wicked fight scene with a sword and an 18-wheeler and then he talks some more.
Keanu Reeves is awesome. He fights a bazillion guys at once and they're all like "grrr" and Keanu's all like "I know kung fu" and they're all like "so do we" and he's all like "just bring it." So they bring it and he reigns down with great vengeance and furious anger and they're all like :-( and Keanu's all like "hahaha, losers." What made me sad, however, was that I think I almost saw Keanu's weiner in one scene. It's one thing to have Ted "Theodore" Logan in a movie, but I don't want to see his Wyld Stallyn.
I know they've got to set up the third movie in November, but all the exposition crap in this one sucked. I didn't go into this movie wanting a story, I wanted kung fu and explosions. A whole lot of kung fu and explosions. No story, no purpose, just lots of awesome fight scenes. There were awesome fight scenes and cool explosions, but it just dragged in some scenes. Oh well, I guess Revolutions will make up for all the boring exposition. My final grade.... a three out of five for now, but it could change once The Matrix: Revolutions is released.
Well, I guess that's all for now. I'll catch you readers later. The song for this update is Rage Against The Machine's "Wake Up," which is the theme for the first Matrix film. See y'all later.
Saturday, May 10, 2003; 6:10 p.m.
Look at me! Look at me! Look at me!
Went to see X2 for the second time, and I approve. Me, Mo, and B.J. went to see it when it opened last Friday, but we had to sit in the very front row of the theater right in front of the screen, so it demanded a second viewing. It's probably my favorite comic book movie since the first Batman movie way back in 1989. The acting is great; every actor plays their role to near-perfection. I can't think of anything else to say other than you should go see it now, but watch the first X-Men movie beforehand, to be safe.
The song is "Falling Apart" by Trust Company, and that's all for now. See ya later.
Tuesday, April 29, 2003; 11:07 a.m.
Oh man, two updates within a week! It's a total breakdown and collapse of society! Total anarchy!
Okay, let me collect myself..... <deep breath>
I'm better now. Anyway, you may be wondering if I've actually went out and did anything. I did! I went to see Identity on Saturday. You may have seen the ads for it on TV, and it's the number one movie in America right now. Basically, the film is about a group of ten people that get stranded at a hotel, they discover they're all connected somehow, and they all start dying (it was loosely based on Agatha Christie's novel Ten Little Indians, if the plot sounds familiar).
Want a review? Here's one. The movie starts out being awesome, and then it starts sucking once the major twist is revealed. It just stops making sense once that's given away. As for the acting, Ray Liotta is awesome in his role, but John Cusack should stick to his usual "normal dude" roles, and the rest of the cast was just bleh.
And if you plan on seeing it and want to figure out who the killer is, remember Roger Ebert's "law of character dynamics": the killer is the one character that neither the other characters or the audience cares about. Or if you just want to know who the killer is, highlight here: The killer ends up being the little kid. Want to know the twist? Here's the twist (highlight again): Turns out that the main plot is about a convict with Multiple Personality Disorder, and all the characters are his personalities.
Anyway, that's all for now. Just wanted to give that little review. The song is, fittingly enough, "Where Is My Mind" by The Pixies. Thanks for reading, and bye bye. :)
Thursday, April 24, 2003; 7:21 p.m.
I saw House Of 1000 Corpses yesterday afternoon, and all I can say is "holy crap." This has to be one of the craziest movies I've ever seen. Imagine if The Texas Chainsaw Massacre traded its chainsaw for a very heavy dose of LSD. That is House Of 1000 Corpses. Oddly enough, the film stars Bill Mosley, who appeared as Chop Top in the second Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie.
Basically, this is Rob Zombie's homage to the gritty, blood-and-guts horror movies of the 70s. Nobody makes movies like this anymore. House Of 1000 Corpses is a stark reminder that before Hollywood forced watered-down garbage like I Know What You Did Last Summer and the Scream trilogy down the throats of today's youth, films like Texas Chainsaw Massacre, I Spit On Your Grave, and The Last House On The Left were horror. And now, Rob Zombie has brought fear back into the genre. With House Of 1000 Corpses (and hopefully 28 Days Later, Cabin Fever, and Freddy Vs. Jason, which will all be released later this year), the horror genre is finally getting a much-needed look at what made it great in the 70s and 80s.
House Of 1000 Corpses is absolutely nothing like what today's youth knows about horror. The film is brutal, violent, disturbing. The main characters are not the only victims of pain and suffering; the audience is too. Once the movie gets going, it never stops torturing the senses. In one scene, the film absolutely stops dead in its tracks just before a cop meets the business end of a villian's handgun. It just prolongs the agony we see on screen, making it seem like it'll never end.
The film is only playing on a few hundred theaters, but if you can find one near you that's showing it, GO SEE IT. If you can't find a theater showing it, rent the video when it comes out.
The song for this update is the theme song for the movie, performed by Rob Zombie, and that's all for now.
Friday, April 18, 2003; 6:39 p.m.
Okay, an update is here. :)
Picked up a new CD and DVD on Tuesday, so yay me. Added to the DVD collection is a Canadian film called Cube, and the CD is "Infiltrate Destroy Rebuild" by CKY (which, for the curious, stands for "Camp Kill Yourself").
I also saw the new film Anger Management, starring Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson, last Friday. Quite the funny film it is. I recommend it. I really wanted to see House of 1000 Corpses, but I guess I'll wait for the DVD because I can't get a ride to Lexington to see it. :(
I can't think of anything to put in this update, so I'll close with a song: "Flesh Into Gear" from the CKY album I picked up on Tuesday.
Thanks for reading, and I'll see you in the funny pages!
Monday, March 31, 2003; 2:27 a.m.
Not a whole lot to update on over the last few weeks. I bought the Jackass: The Movie soundtrack and DVD, and they're both great. I also picked up the game "WWE Crush Hour" for my Gamecube, and considering I only payed 19 bucks for it, I think it's pretty good. :)
Wrestlemania XIX took place over the weekend as well, and it rocked pretty hard. :)
The song of the update is the Wrestlemania theme song, Limp Bizkit's "Crack Addict." Thanks for reading this rather miniscule update.
Friday, March 7, 2003; 12:15 a.m.
Wow, the updates are coming more common.
Last weekend, I went to see Old School. The film, in a word, sucked. Imagine Animal House or Van Wilder with less gross-out gags and only half the humor. Vince Vaughn and Will Ferrell are the only real bright spots of the movie, espscially Ferrell's performance of "Dust In The Wind" by Kansas.
I also bought the DVD of The Ring on Tuesday. Though the DVD is lacking in extras, the greatness of the film makes it worth it. I suggest renting the film at least once.
The song for the update is "Rock Me Amadeus" by Falco, and that's all for now.
Thursday, February 27, 2003; 5:09 p.m.
Faithful readers, I hate to be the bearer of sad news, but Fred Rogers, known to us all as just Mr. Rogers, passed away this morning at the age of 74.
We should mourn his death, but likewise, we should celebrate his life. Mr. Rogers taught us that each of us is special, not for our posessions, but for who we are and how we live our lives. He taught us that kindness is important above all, and that everyone, no matter who they are, deserves to be treated with respect. Mr. Rogers is the one person whom no member of my cynical generation has ever doubted or mocked. He built a neighborhood in which each of us feel like we belong, where we're going to be just fine.
Thank you, neighbor. Thank you for everything.
Sunday, February 16, 2003; 7:44 p.m.
Me and my buddy Mo went to see Daredevil last night, and it was alright. Almost as fun as Spider-Man, but not in the same league as Superman 2 or Batman. Colin Farrell is awesome in it, despite being just a supporting character. And Affleck... he's Affleck.
Anyway, the song is "Bring Me To Life" by Evanescence, from the Daredevil soundtrack. See ya with the next update.
Sunday, February 2, 2003; 6:05 p.m.
Hi folks. Two updates within a week? I'm as shocked as you are.
Me and dad saw Final Destination 2 last night. Not having seen the first one, I can't compare them. But, however, I enjoyed the film. Not great, but watchable. On the topic of movies, I bought the DVD of Manhunter at Wal-Mart today. I must say that I think it's just as good as Red Dragon (both films were based on the same book).
I also bought a new leather jacket and shoes today. Why? I needed some new clothes for a funeral. My uncle Milton died yesterday. :(
The song is "We 3" by Soul Asylum, and that's all. Bye.
Monday, January 27, 2003; 10:48 p.m.
So anyway, I don't have a life. Not much is going on. :(
I did go see Darkness Falls this past weekend, however. It sucked. The first fifteen minutes were good, but the film slipped downhill from there. If you go see this movie, watch the first fifteen minutes and LEAVE QUICKLY.
This update's song is "All The Things She Said" by Tatu. I suggest buying their album, it's good stuff.
See you next time, whenever that is.
Wednesday, January 1, 2003; 12:10 a.m.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Song: "Living After Midnight" by Judas Priest. :)
