Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus.

This scene has the Mega shark taking down a plane in the air. At Flowing Data they have found an artists rendition of how this could happen. Also so you can see the video of it:

I had a book of quotes

When I was a moody pre-teen and teenager I had two movies that I lurved. Say Anything and the Breakfast club. My god I watched that movie so many times. While not as many as the Princess Bride, it was pretty close.

I also had a quote book at some point and almost every quote was from the Breakfast club. I remember rewinding the tape over and over to make sure I had written down the quote correctly. thank god for the internet now and that i can just google all the quotes, but at the time that was not an option and they were in a book. 

So it is a terrible loss today of John Hughes. I LOVED his movies and I might have to download and watch a bunch of them this weekend. 

Some quotes. Add your own faves:

Andrew: We're all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that's all.

Pajiba has a series on hangover movies and this week was So I married and axe murderer. Which I saw when it came out and had on VHS. My brother and I would watch this movie all the time and it has many things going for it

1 - Lots of cameos - Phil Hartman as vicki the Alcatraz Guard, Alan Arkin,  Amanda Plummer, Steven wright and charles grodin.

2 - Quoteable lines

  • We have a piper down! A piper is down! no wait he is just pissed
  • His head has its own weather system
  • Come Nadia - Let us dance like children of the night!
  • And Charlie - Light a Match!
  • I believe that all Scottish Cuisine is based on a dare
Ah - great memories, I might have to download this for viewing later

 

If you like The Wire, you'll love American Gangster

Russell Crowe is not terribly annoying (actually quite good); Josh Brolin plays an excellent dirty copy; and my man Denzel Washington is fabulous as an entrepreneurial drug dealer. Remind you of anyone? Well, Stringer Bell even has a small part.

The movie is actually reminds me more of Heat in that there are two parallel stories: one cop and one criminal, and the criminal is really sympathetic. You kinda hate to see him go down.

I highly recommend it.

Jesus Camp

Has anyone else seen JesusCamp? I watched it this weekend and it is creepy. It was nominated for an oscar last year and if you haven't seen it you should. It follows a few different evangelical families around before and after the go to this camp in the summer in North Dakota. These kids are indoctrinated into a culture that gives them no option to ask questions or find out answers for themselves. Its really scary. You should put it in your netflix queue.

Bourne Ultimatum

I know Lange said she really liked the movie, but I saw it today and it was AWESOME. I have really been down on the action movies for a while but this one was great! Fight scenes were intense, the car crashes were un-real. There was an actual story to follow which was intense and made sense. Matt Damon is hot. It was a great movie and everyone should go see it in the theatre.

The new Fletch news is that the new Fletch will be... (drumroll)

Josh Jackson (Pacey from Dawson's Creek). WTF?  Terrible casting and I am very sad that there isn't someone better who can play Fletch. 

Best Action Films of All Time

So one of my fav sites Pajiba has a new top 15 list of the best Action Films of All Time.

While I don't agree with all of them, (Mr. & Mrs. Smith) There are some great ones on the list including: Terminator 2, Aliens, The Professional, The Matrix (only the first one), Radiers of the Lost Arc.

Man I love Raiders. That is such a good movie, "That's just my pet snake Reggie!" All three of the Indy movies were great. I have to say, I used to watch Temple of Doom over and over again. Monkey Brains.

Other films that did not make the list which are also awesome: The Italian Job, True Romance, Gladiator. 

Don't know if this will show up here

But a New Zealand movie called "Black Sheep" looks amazing.

http://www.blacksheep-themovie.com

The site has great jokes like: Why do scots wear kilts? Because sheep can hear zippers.

The premise for the movie:

There are 40 million sheep in New Zealand and only 4 million inhabitants. After a genetic experiment goes wrong, New Zealand's sheep start turning nasty, and it's the humans who begin bleating. preview below
