English, Johnny English


Mr. Bean, and James Bond in the same movie? No the movie I am talking about is Johnny English, starring England's famous Mr. Bean, Rowan Atkinson, as the main character in this film, Johnny English.

As I've stated before, this film is a parody of the James Bond films. Instead of everything going right for the hero trying to save the day, many things go wrong during the way.

I must say that this movie is rather amusing. No, I'm not saying that because of my love for the stupid comedy movies that I've enjoyed in the past. It is amusing because Atkinson plays the role of the dope hero to a tee. He is the guy who you know that will screw everyone and everything up, but he will make sure everything works out in the end.

Can I say how many people will go out and see this movie? No. Will I be able to convince people to see? No, but I will try.

I have to give this movie a 7 out of 10. For those of you out there thanks for reading!!

Trust Me I'm a Doctor

Now, I know many of you have heard of the 1975 shock rock/cult classic movie The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Not too many people know that it had a sequel that was released in 1981. The name of that film, Shock Treatment.

What can I say about Shock Treatment? My answer, many different things. The first thing is that I can say is that it has the same oddness, and obscurity the Rocky Horror had and has.

There are many of the same elements to it, such as the corny musical numbers, characters from Rocky Horror that appear here, but are played by different people (Brad and Janet). The only Character that stayed the same is Ralph Hapschatt. Going back to the music, it is as corny as it was in Rocky Horror, maybe even more, but it keeps you entertained.

Now on to the plot. It still takes place in the fictional town of Denton. The only thing is that it takes place in a television studio because the lives of Brad and Janet, are made into a TV show. I can honestly say that was odd, but fun at the same time.

I know I am into very odd and peculiar movies, and let me tell you, this was one of them. Hats off to Richard O'Brien and the cast of this film. I have to say the as odd as this movie was, it was enjoyable. On a scale of 1-10, I have to give this movie a 9 1/2 stars

People (aka actors) in movies

I know everyone has their favorite actors out there in Hollyweird. I will say, yes I do as well, but there are some actors and actresses that annoy the living piss out of me. I know I, just like everyone else and not perfect, nor do I claim to be, but some of them annoy me.

I honestly don't know where to start. This is something that I have to think about for a bit. Wow, this really hard. OK, I got it.

1) The entire cast of the Jersey Shore. OK, i know they aren't movie stars, but I had to put them up here. The reason why is because they are a bunch of god damned phonies, who freakin' get drunk every night, act like they are the coolest, which they aren't, they say stuff that gets them punched in the mouth and wonder why, and they do a dumb ass fist pump. They should get my fist pumped up their asses.

2) Jude Law- one word douchebag.

3) The Twilight pansies-Just like I said they're pansies.

4) Whoever else I feel like hating-Reason, because they aggravate me and make me want to kill them!

That's just my view on that.

Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy

What can I say about these extremely funny shorts by Seth Macfarlane? First off they are funny as all hell. They made me laugh my ass off. I know there are people out there in this world that don't fin Mr. Macfarlane funny, but I won't name names *cough Pete cough*.

I think the man is genius for coming up with an idea like this. I just want to say that ever since I first saw Family Guy 10 years ago in 1999, I knew this guy was talented. I was telling people that and they didn't believe me. I was told I was crazy. Now a lot of those people have changed their tone and see it the way I see it.

One of my favorite shorts, well my first favorites is The Scottish Guy Who Can't Keep His Mouth Shut While Watching a Movie. Take a guess why it was funny.

The other one that I couldn't help laugh at was Fred Flinstone Takes A Crap. I mean nothing better than some poop humor.

Documentaries

As many people know that documentaries are somewhat influential in the movie world. Many people know as well that Mr. Michael Moore is one of the biggest documentary filmmakers ariound. For those of you who don't know he did Bowling For Columbine, Sicko, Farenhiet 911, and Captialism: A Love Sotry.

What I am getting at if Mr. Moore can show whats wrong with our society, and the world around us, there should be documentaries about other things; trust me I'm not talking about Nanook of the North.

I say do a documentary about something very different, like the world of board/card games. Yes, I know some people are going to tell me that this is the dumbest thing they've ever heard, but watch someone do it and it take off.

Go ahead tell me that' stupid and that I'm a dullard an that wouldn't work. My question is if that would work, why is Tom Cruise still allowed to make films?

Don't throw rocks at a man with a machine gun

I know what people are thinking. What the hell is up with that title? Well, let me tell ya, it's a famous quote from legendary pro-wrestler Rodderick George Tombs, better known to most people as the "Hot Scot" Rowdy Roddy Piper. I know your next question is where am i going with this?

Where I am going is Roddy's DVD Born To Controversy. This tells the life, times, and the ways of Roddy. It tells the story about how he broke into pro-wrestling, and made a living out it from the again of 15 years old.

While watching this you learned that he lived all over the world, and left home at the age of 12 going on 13. He struggled to survive, and lived in teen hostels just to have a place to survive; with the rent being something 25 cents Canadian.




One of the things that you find out is that Roddy was in John Carpenter's film They Live. Carpenter went on to say he was looking at a notebook with stuff that Roddy was going to try and use during promos and interviews, and saw one line that he told Roddy to put in the movie. That famous line is: "I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass, and I'm all out of bubblegum."

My question is, would you expect anything else from someone like Roddy?

Oh yeah there's one more thing to remember, just when you think that you've got the answer, he switches the question!

from 1-10 it gets a 9

Hart and Soul

When most people hear the last name of Hart, they usually think of the famous Hart Wrestling Family. Ok, not everyone will, but a lot of people do. I am one of them.

As many people know the family was headed by the famous Stu and Helen, the parents of 12, that's right 12 kids. The list of kids are Smith, Bruce, Keith Wayne, Dean, Ellie, Georgia, Bret, Allison
, Ross, Diana, and Owen.

Many of the kids went on to become wrestlers or marry wrestlers. Bret and Owen were the two most famous of them all. Ellie married Jim "the Anvil" Neidhart, whose daughter Natalia is a wrestler. Also, Diana married The British Bulldog Davey Boy Smith. Their son, Harry (D.H.)is a wrestler.

This DVD is an excellent documentary type thing. Many wrestling fans will enjoy it
