a while ago i posted an entry to convey my dismay that i had inadvertently watched "black samurai" instead of "black belt jones" well i finally got my hands on BBJ and it was well worth the wait. here are 10 reasons why BBJ is the shit:

1) pinky the thug- pinky makes this movie w/ some the best one-liners ever case in point,

pinky and crew go to menace BBJ's dojo in the still of the night and one of the thugs blurts out loud, "it's dark in here..." and pinky responds "no shit nigga....you musta went to harvard..." priceless

2) jim kelly is always in various stages of undress...

3) the 70s tight pants/flared collar combo...

4) for some reason the sound editing team seem to thought that it would add to the hilarity if they added curly, of the stooges fame, "wooo hooo wooo's" to loop jim's karate grunts...

5) "syyyydddnnnyyy is a brrrrroad..."

6) the midnight dojo fight...

7) the fact there is a karate dojo in the middle of a poor black community...

8) the fact there is a karate dojo in the middle of a poor black community, and scatman crothers is the dojo master...

9) this scene...



10) as a whole it is a hot mess of fun...

a good times :)

uh yeah, so long time no post right. i wish i could say that my absence from LJ was mainly due to being productive in scholarly pursuits and such. but that wouldn't be entirely true. though i have many irons in the fire at the moment, i've mostly been partying and working. but i thought i'd take a few moments to squee about a few things. namely GLEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

as some of you may recall i dedicated an entire post to the awesome that is "glee" after the pilot aired way back in may i think. well since then, it has hit the fall line up and i cannot recall being this excited about a show since arrested development. it's been a while since i've actively looked forward to a show coming on. so kudos to ryan murphy and crew...

what else??...oh yeah, kinda riding the late train to "dollhouse." finally got on board after the catching the rest of s1 (thanks netflix). i should have known better than to doubt the god we call whedon. still not as good as the shows that have proceeded it, but it's got potential especially if they bring back dr. saunders, and let's face it, amy acker could have sexy chemistry w/ a cactus and it'd make my lady parts sing. when DH first aired my major problem w/ it was that it didn't feel like a whedon show. it felt like whedon does abrams and i was left feeling a bit cold and disappointed. it took until "man on the street" to get that whedon feeling and by "need" it felt full on whedonverse.

and finally...SKINS, the show as a whole is kinda redundant, but emily and naomi are cute and i'm not immune to the sweetness that is thomas...i just want to give that boy a hug...the rest of the characters are tossers. so stick that up your union jack...needless to say, can't wait for series 4!!

this shit is hilarious...

10 reasons why i love "the thing with 2 heads"...

1) rosie grier...

2) you can play a drinking game by counting how many times someone says "black bastard"

3) the best acting in the movie is done by the guy playing the 2 headed gorilla...

4) the fact that they perform an extremely complicated surgery in a basement...

5) it has one of the awesomest car chases ever and i'm sure it is what inspired the dukes of hazzard...

6) "you gotta go..." if you ever see this flick, you'll know what i mean...

7) ray milland...the poor bastard...

8) the constant reassurance that californian law enforcement is completely inept...

9) this flick is pure 70s filmmaking...

10) it's just plain fun to watch...

spoilerific review of HP & tHBPCollapse )

10 reasons why no more "twilight" movies should be made...

um...just wow. i watched this today and nearly went into a diabetic coma. or just a plain ol' coma as it was boring as fuck. i dunno, i think i'm just done w/ vampires now because not only is the theme over used, but people keep fucking up the shit that make vampires cool. so here are 10 reasons why they need to stop making more twilight movies:

1) the cast sucks...

it seems like everyone went to the emma watson school of acting. that is not a compliment. shame on you elizabeth reaser.

2) the characters suck...

i wish they were all dead. then that way i know for a fact that no more of these lame fucking movies would ever see the light of day. they would have been better off using props made of popsicle sticks and stop animation w/ cardboard mouths. it would have been cheaper and they would have gotten more out of the actors.

3) vampire baseball...

no one should ever have to be subjected to witnessing quite possibly the lamest fucking thing ever created by man and/or vampire.

4) gaymance...

is never fun to watch. it just makes you want to vomit. your lame luv sucks!!

5) the script sucked...

it's like the re-imagining of a 12 year old girl's idea of a rape fantasy.

6) it's a 12 year old girl's rape fantasy.

7) these vampires are pussies...

8) the SFX look like something a high school film enthusiast creamed himself over while fucking around on final cut pro...

9) robert pattison's hair has a SAG card...

i'm just tired robert pattison's stupid hair and this look should not be encouraged...

10) the money could just be spent on something as equally shitty but infinitely more fun...

like pooty tang 2: biggie shorty's revenge...now i'd love to see that shit get made.

if i could take it behind the jr. high and get it pregnant, i totally would!! or HP & the HBP=WOW!!

i've spent a great deal of time in the past defending my love of soap operas. to the average onlooker, soaps are a mindless bit of prattle that is the basically the ramblings of a barely non-retarded person. to me, soaps represent well spent afternoons hangin' out with my grandma.and while initially i enjoyed just hanging out w/ my grandmother, watching here "stories." as the years went on, i began to develop an appreciation for the genre that has helped me be a more active and perceptive tv and movie viewer.

stuff like conflict, character development and story arcs are very formulaic in soaps, but they have a structure that you can understand and apply in your own writing. and i won't lie, i'd love to write for a soap one day because i can't think of a more fun gig. all that aside, i haven't really watched them at all the last few years mainly because the ones that i loved stopped being fun. but the cool thing about soaps is, you can stop watching them for years, come back to them and watch a week's worth of eps. and it's like you never stopped. this has happened to me on numerous occasions, but i have to say the my recent return to soaps has been the most satisfying. here are my thoughts on the otalia storylineCollapse )
