Awesome new show on CBS so far. I guess it’s awesome. Pirates are awesome, but most of the people on this show are not. Christian Okoye, ex-NFL running back is on the show. Anyway, there’s nothing else on Thursday nights at 8pm right now, so the Pirate Master I shall watch. Argh.
I liked it. Sure, it was overly violent, but some of the violence you might be rooting for by the time it occurs. I really don’t know what’s wrong with Mel Gibson these days though, I have to believe he doesn’t really know exactly how these guys celebrated (ie: dismemberment atop pyramids, etc…). I don’t want to give away too much if someone hasn’t seen it, and I’ll caution you that unless you’re desensitized to graphics violence that you may want to skip it. For me though, I’m glad I saw it and I’ve added the DVD to my collection.
Click the Blockbuster banner below to get the movie, also I’ve added the movie trailer video below that.
I don’t usually say this about MTV shows, but Scarred is a truly fantastic show. I dig how it’s put together, where they’ll show a short clip of homeboy explaining a little bit about whatever happened in his scar story, then they cut to an extremely short “teaser”Â clip of the actual accident or maybe just a sound bite of homeboy screaming in absolute agony.
For instance, tonights episode. I think it was the first segment, dude is being interviewed and maybe even laughing a little bit about his story, so you know he’s survived and is okay (thats why this show is allowed to be funny), but then you hear the sound bite of the most horrific sounding scream ever (well, since the last episode anyway).
I went to see if I could find a clip of the accident I’m talking about on youtube, but I couldn’t find it…so, anyway, here’s a different video.. sorry, no scream in this one.
Ok I really need to spend more time writing stuff, but that cuts down on my TV watching time.
Last night I watched Art School Confidential, a movie from my blockbuster.com queue that stars some people I dont know, plus John Malkovich and Anjelica Huston. Pretty good movie, with the exception of schlong being shown within the first 20 minutes.
Basically it’s about a kid who’s a good artist, going to art school and finding out he’s not so special anymore, considering he’s surrounded by all kinds of other artists, which is really the most humorous parts of the movie is them portraying the different art school cliches, such as people who can’t draw or paint worth a damn but get credit for the “humanity” behind their drawings.
