What a crazy ass movie. It’s about a town called Trona, California. The town is ran by some kid named Dirk, who bought up all the property real cheap after the town was declared a toxic waste dump. The DVD box describes it as “a dead-end desert town for people with dead-end lives.”
The movie stars Danny DeVito, Jonah Hill (Superbad), Dylan Walsh, Brad Hunt, Tracy Middendorf, and Justin Long.
The movie is hilarious if you have a strange sense of humor.
Seriously, is there anything more stupid than these damn dance movies I see on the shelf at Blockbuster? They’ve got one now called “How She Move” — the title itself should clue you in to the idiocy of the movie.
Even worse, you have a movie called “You Got Served.” What the hell? Is this movie about dance fighting? ooooooh. YOU GOT SERVED, SUCKA. I just outdanced yo ass. It’s one thing if a movie is supposed to be humorous, but these damn movies are meant to be taken seriously. I think these street dance crews are meant to be “hard”.
Dance movies are stupid, did I already say that? Footloose, Flashdance, — all stupid, and I can confidently say this even though I’ve never seen any of them.
The only good dance movies ever were Breakin, Breakin 2: Electric Boogaloo, Tap, and Dirty Dancing.
When this movie came out, I sort of expected it to suck (and it still might — I haven’t watched it yet). However, the DVD cover shows a caveman about to fight a giant Sabretooth tiger, so that should make any movie worth watching in my opinion. Also, I’m really going to try and start blogging about more things I watch. Especially if it involves cavemen fighting prehistoric animals.
Awesome, I’m glad they are starting a new season. The season starts Wednesday July 16th. I only hope Dog’s son that set him up is outcast from the family. It takes a scumbag to provoke & record a conversation to blackmail a family member with.
Starring Matthew Perry, Kevin Pollak, Lynn Collins. A good movie, not great. Matthew Perry stars as a dude who is having trouble with his head, and lucks out to find a hot chick who will put up with him. Touted as a “medicated love story.” Overall, a decent movie. From Blockbuster.com:
A man who is suddenly without feelings is motivated by a love he isn’t quite sure is there in this offbeat independent comedy. Hudson (Matthew Perry) is a screenwriter who has enjoyed a modest success in Hollywood, but one day he suddenly and inexplicably sinks into a strange funk — he feels strangely removed from the world around him, as if reality has slipped away and he can’t physically or emotionally feel his surroundings. Hudson’s writing partner Tom (Kevin Pollock) is more than a bit disturbed by the sudden change in Hudson’s demeanor, and on his advice he begins seeing the first of several psychiatrists, most of whom prescribe a dizzying variety of drugs, except for Dr. Blaine (Mary Steenburgen), who is turned on by Hudson’s condition and ends up having an affair with him. As Hudson seems to be running out of ways to reconnect with himself, he meets Sarah (Lynn Collins), a beautiful woman who is quite taken with him and decides to introduce him to as many positive and compelling experiences as possible. The first feature-length directorial project for screenwriter Harris Goldberg, Numb received its North American premiere at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
I just watched a strange movie called Be Kind Rewind, starring Jack Black and Mos Def. I guess it was a pretty good movie. They play a couple of dumbasses who attempt to save a local video store where they work after their stock of movies are oddly erased. The movie was written by Michael Gondry (Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind).
