Jimmy: So, Coach, I was thinking about the music for our routine.
Coach: Oh, really?
Chazz: We're gonna dance to one song, and one song only: "Lady Humps" by the Blackeyed Peas. "What you gonna do with all that junk, all that junk inside your trunk? I’m a get you, get you drunk, get you drunk off my lady humps, my humps, my humps, my lovely lady humps."
Jimmy: [disgusted] I'm not skating to anything with references to lady humps. I don't even know what that means.
Chazz: No one knows what it means, but it's provocative...
Jimmy: No, it's not, it's gross...
Chazz: ...It gets the people going!

I just saw that film, and I laughed ALOT!

That fight scene, when the coach slow-motioned the tape? :lol:

Caroline has man taste in films. Is she a man?
Fincher's output is homoerotic. It's cinema for women.
Now heres what I think: You saw Fight Club in the theatres, not once, but twice, because you didnt quite get it the first time. You thought it was awesome and bought it on VHS one year later. The VHS was then replaced with a sweet double disc DVD with lots of bonus material, which you enjoyed.
Fight Club is on your DVD list. Admit that you like it.

Lets get back to that Blades of Glory thing. It was hilarious! I didnt care much for Dodgeball or Anchorman, but this one was great!

I busted my chops watching it. I was also drinking champagne through a straw.

Haven't seen Dodgeball. Anchorman was pissweak, except for the fight between all the news crews.

I predicted the films outcome quite accurately. It was entertaining enough lacked substance and therefore longevity. "Sweet" and "awesome", juvenile terms that you applied upon your very own experience, watching it as an impressionable young boy.

See: "Projection" and "Defence Mechanism"

Lars von Trier´s "Direktøren bag det hele" or.. ehm.. "The director behind it all" (?)

Very funny and interesting. One of the best things I´ve seen of him for ages.

Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny: Garbage. I liked the HBO series, and some of their music, but this film was pure ass.

Yesterday I watched..

American Dreamz. - Good stoned lolz. Hugh forever.

The King (the Aussie movie) - Steven Curry is great, The guy is becoming a very solid actor. Also featuring some good performances from ex heartbreak high / raw fm / neighbours people.

The Club - Ripper 70's cast. John Howard looking mighty buff. Too bad it was about Collingwood.

A History of Violence. - Wow. Brief but enjoyable. I loved the dread that would slowly build before each of the instances of graphic ultraviolence.
'the fuck did I do?

Transamerica - OK, but a bit too soft.

From beyond; Partial nudity. Slimy monsters. Cheesy. Mediocre.

Behind the wall of sleep: Scary. Weird. Gory. Spooked me out.

The music of Erich Zann: Beautifull. Great atmosphere. Not scary though.

Evil Dead: Gory. Funny. Spooky. Really bad special effects. Funny hair.

I despise Jack Black. I downloaded because the schmucks here kept grinding on about how great it was. I hated the album, Jack Black etc yet still put myself through thirty minutes of misery. Unlike that other shite (Nacho Libre) I tapped out after 1/2 hour. "No more punishment, please!" I cried. "I can't take no more!".

Jack Black is starting to annoy me too. I used to like him. His Spiderman spoof was great, he has a nice voice, and he was perfect in HiFi, but apart from that I cant really recall laughing of any of his movies. After watching that TenD film, I regret ever defending him. (I did enjoy the scene from Anchorman, where he kicks the dog off the bridge :lol:)
