Waist Deep

Gangsta Gangsta.

Waist Deep Stars Tyrese (what the hecks his last name?) As a former Felon with two strikes that just wants to be with his son. While taking his kid home from school he gets jumped and his car gets jacked with his son in the back seat. A gun fight ensues and some people die and the movies plot is basically his son is being held by a Los Angeles gang and the only way he can get his son back is to come up with $100,000 that he doesn't have. So he has to once again become a felon and risk his third strike going back to prison forever by stealing money and jewelry. Mixed into all of this is some killer hip hop tracks that overshadow a whole lot of violence, language, and beatdowns......and more beatdowns. Yep this movie is definately dirty south worthy and I bet will become a Cron Classic.
Overall the movie wasn't horrible and I give it a mild thumbs up. Actually I'm not gonna do the whole thumb thing.......... 7 out of 10.

The Lady In The Water

M Night Shyamalan's Lady In The Water.

Was this supposed to be scary? There are maybe 2 or 3 parts that could possibly make you jump but seriously this movie was just about as good as The Village, or Signs, or Unbreakable. Mediocre at best. They try to throw everything together at the end and yes there are twists and turns but the whole story just didn't flow during the 2 hours. There are some funny parts as the main character uncontrollably stutters during the film but I wouldn't waste my money on this one.


Shyamalan needs to do something else with his career cause since the Sixth Sense he's trying to repeat that movie's success and he just isn't getting it done.

900 Carrer Wins

As many of you know It has become a tradition to watch Monday Night Raw at my house and has been a tradition dating back to even the early days of 1993 at my parents house. Well beginning in July of 2001 I began keeping records of peoples picks on all of the matches. Say Hulk Hogan was wrestling the Undertaker, I would get everyones picks before the match and if you pick the match correctly you get a win. If you incorrectly pick the match you get a loss. Anyways I have kept track of everyone's records over the past 6 years and I thought it would be a good time to cover everyone's Carrer record. The reason I found now a good time is because this past Monday I hit the 900 club. 900 carrer matches picked correctly. So as I creep closer to 1,000 I give you every single person to ever watch wrestling at my house on Monday night's record. This is for the entertainment factor and I honestly think nobody cares about this other than me but here are the CARRER STATISTICS:

There you have it. I just wasted part of your day on Statistics. One more thing which didn't pump me up too much. My 900th win came at a Randy Orton vs. Val Venis Squash match that lasted 1 minute. Not too Climatic but whatever.
Approximately 5,804 total picks on Monday Night Raw Wrestling Matches.

Pirates Of The Caribbean 2

I will never see Lord Of The Rings 1,2 or 3. I will never watch Star Wars Episodes 1-6. I will never buy a Harry Potter DVD or watch one on TV. However, I must say that Pirates of the Caribbean 1 and 2 are both excellent. Ha. Yeah perhaps Duffy J finally marked out and watched a popular movie for once. 

The funny thing is I had not seen the original Pirates Of The Caribbean until last night. So I watched 1 and 2 back to back nights. Obviously on the big screen is way better but I have a decent sound system and enjoyed the original. Jack Sparrow is quite a character and I can see how many people have grown fond of him in both movies. Both movies have action, romance, drama, etc. While the sequel may have some fighting scenes that may be a bit over the top, it kept me interested during the entire 2.5 hours. I definately recommend this movie to anyone over the age of 10. With the flops at the box office this summer (Poseidon, MI:3, etc.) I will go ahead and put a guarentee out there that Pirates takes the cake for box office sales this summer. Anyways I'm not going to go into anymore detail on the movie. If I were to rate one over the other I cannot at this moment, I will go ahead and rate them equally. If you liked the first one the second one delivers as well.........9/10.

I even bought the soundtrack, what a mark I am. Hey! It has a sweet remix with Tiesto so I couldn't help myself.
