Monday's here and the time is right for another bulletin board's worth of frustrations. The weekend was relaxing, but now we take arms yet again and fight off another week of gaaah. The week begins here...
1. Shutter Island
(Why not? It'll be much talked about, and everyone loves a good twist ending.)
(I think this has the capacity to become Kevin Smith's biggest film yet.)
(Because James Cameron is still working his dark magic.)
Lovable Loser of the Week: The Crazies
- For those of you who love my Customer Service rants, watch out for Blockbuster Can Go to Hell (Pt. 2). It's a fun little story of phone debates, free movies, and the Saw series. Needless to say, I've only grown to love Netflix even more.
- SPOILERS: BTW, Saw VI is a clear sign that Saw VII needs to be the end of the franchise. It's getting really ridiculous, so much that it's topped the heights of ridiculousness the series created a benchmark for. (And why would you bring back Agent Perez only to kill her ass dead for good? And the whole "Amanda being involved in Jill's accidental miscarriage" aspect? Completely unnessicary.) Watching Saw VI was akin to watching a sequel to a film you loved as a kid and realizing, "This franchise has gotten over the hill fast." Most toddlers would sympathize seeing as there's 15 Land Before Time's.
- Joseph Stack is not a hero, he's a terrorist. When someone bitches about paying taxes and holds peaceful protests, or tries to educate others on tax law while articulating their distaste of the tax system...that's being heroic and intellectual. Flying a plane into a Government building, killing an innocent bystander (who probably hated the tax code as much as he did) and leaving a nice little manifesto on your blog that corresponds to your radical action...that's being a terrorist, a coward, and just plane stupid. May your shame mark your daughter for even considering you a hero.
- Doctor Who needs to come back to TV soon. I miss watching it already. What's more, American movie theaters should wise up and bring the 3D trailer for Series 5 to the states. Why should England get to have all the fun?
- If anyone at the BBC wants to offer me a writing position, I'd be mighty glad. I'm not too expensive, I'm rather funny, and I think I'd be able to produce 6 episodes a year of quality television/radio. Just offering is all.
- So say we all.
And now, to bring the week in on a high note, here's a trailer for something I desperately hope makes it to America. If you love Monty Python, you'll agree.
