A roller derby movie. A movie about hot chicks rollerskating and hitting eachother. This movie is the directorial debut of Drew Barrymore. Starring Ellen Page, Kristen Wiig, Juliette Lewis, Drew Barrymore, Jimmy Fallon, Daniel Stern, and Marcia Gay Harden.
Juliette lewis is crazy hot. Always has been. Same with Drew Barrymore.
The movie is actually very good, I was surprised.
I rate this movie 8/10
I’d also like to find out if I’m right about a similarity between a scene in this movie, and another scene in Stand By Me. at about the 54-55 minute mark of Whip It, Ellen Page and her boyfriend are standing at the edge of a lake. To me, it looked like the same lake that appears in the movie Stand By Me where the boys find the dead body. I saw this because I’ve seen Stand By Me probably 100 times, it’s one of my favorite films ever. I could be wrong about the lake being the same, but I’d like to find out if I’m right just to satisfy my own curiosity.
This movie is NOT really a comedy, even though Patton Oswalt is in it. Although there are humorous scenes, it is mostly a dark, tense drama. Written and directed by Robert Siegel, this movie is about a big sports fan obsessed with the New York Giants. Also in the movie is Kevin Corrigan and Michael Rappaport, both who usually bring the quality. LOL @ starting the movie off with Patton calling in to a Jim Rome type of show…I am familiar. This is shaping up to be a good movie.
Starring David Duchovny and Sigourney Weaver. I have no idea what it is about, bu I’m about to watch it now. Ok…it’s about a TV show pilot that never got off the ground. The movie starts by saying x% of all TV series produced never see the light of day, and this movie is about one of those shows.
On a sidenote, and speaking of Duchovny, I’ve been told that Californication is a good show, I need to get the past seasons from Netflix because I’ve never watched the show at all.
I think I will start rating movies on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the best.
Another interesting documentary by Werner Herzog. It’s basically the story of a dude named Graham Dorrington, an aeronautical engineer that built a teardrop-shaped airship and wants to fly it over the forest canopies of Guyana. There are some good segments about Kaieteur Falls, in Guyana, where supposedly nobody knows what is behind the waterfall because nobody has explored it, and legend among the natives is that it is full of treasure. Werner Herzog had a cameraman drop down to film behind the falls, but their footage won’t be shown.
One of the most interesting people in the film is local miner named Marc Anthony Yhap, who is searching for his family that migrated to Spain. Marc Anthony seems like an awesome person, I hope he has found his family.
Say whatever you want about Fox News, but I love the Red Eye comedy show that comes on at 3am in my timezone. They just had a dude on there who is awesome because he’s a expert on the history of candybars. Back in the 1920s they had a candy bar with vegetables covered in chocolate. It sucked and was not a success. The candy bar expert said the wrapper boasted the claim “does not promote constipation.”
This is a movie I’ve been looking forward to seeing. I’m putting it in the dvd player now. Zombies + Woody Harrelson = WIN. Oh man the gay dude from The Amazing Race (Mike White) also has a scene, sitting on a toilet before the 2:30 mark.
Twinkies are definitley worth fighting zombies for. The double tap rule should apply to all situations in life when someone is trying to kill you and eat your brains.
“You don’t know who Willie Nelson is? WILLIE NELSON?”
On a sidenote, I found out they filmed the amusement park scene in Valdosta, Georgia…I’m guessing it was at Wild Adventures, which isn’t very far from where I live.
HOLY $H!5 BILL MURRAY IS ZOMBIE!!!!
Ok maybe he’s not. But Eddie Van Halen?
Fat people will be the first to die when zombies take over, because they’re easiest to catch.
FYI: the food products in the supermarket scene is all fake, its photos printed on paper inside the freezer.
