Michael Myers as a child and the horrible environment he grew up in, who wouldn't want to kill their entire family?

The first 30 minutes of this movie and you know Rob Zombie directed it. The crude and I mean CRUDE language and other stuff right away reminded me of the devil's rejects. You know the stringy haired dead beat white trash dad and the mother is a stripper of course. Mikey is ignored as a child and noone will take him trick or treating. So he snaps and shit goes crazy.
Later on it jumps forward 20 years and he ends up breaking out of the asylum he's been in for so many years and comes back to kill the only sibling left alive, his baby sister from so many years ago.
It's a remake of the first one but way more brutal. I think I counted 16 kills which definatley makes this one a slasher film. The music is pretty cool too (not just the original theme) Not a bad film, I jumped twice but slasher films don't scare me the way some others do.
It's worth a look if you liked any of the other halloween's and definately better than Halloween H2o.

Winter League Week 1

186, 192, 148 526 series.

For once I don't bowl my ass off week 1 and screw myself over for the season. Starting with a lower average will actually give our team some handicap and maybe this year we can win a game a little sooner than week 5 and not lose 26 straight points. We ended up placing 3rd last year even after a horrible start, quite impressive in my opinion.
I missed like 4 single pin conversions which on any other night would be unacceptable but tonight was the night to sandbag to a certain degree. Plus I injured my finger playing tennis about 10 days ago and it still hasn't fully healed. It should be good to go by next week.
Don't know how many games we won or lost cause nobody had handicap figured into the computer.

Mr. Bean’s Holiday

Ah yes, some of those I knew in high school would categorize this as a "Dean Movie" all the more reason to screen it last Thursday Night.
Before we get to that let's review "Dean Movies" from 1997:


If any of you (terry) can think of any others feel free to throw them on the blog.

Bean's Holiday Adventure returns us to the weird and in some ways humorous to some, antics of Rowan Atkinson. While this movie busted 200 million across seas, it only did 10 mil in the U.S.
Bean is on a vacation with a handheld camera and the movie moves through different places, a fancy restaurant where they serve snails, raw shrimp, etc. You've all seen the trailer I'm sure. Well the trailer is pretty much the first 20 minutes of the film.
There's hardly any dialogue in the entire movie and Bean's main quote would be...
"I'm going to the beach."
There are a few mildly funny parts but overall not a good film.
But definatley fits into the "Dean Movie" category from 1997.
The highlight of the film had to be the Wilford Brimley lookalive on the Mo-ped.

Inland Empire

Inland Empire.... wow. I don't know how to describe this one so I'll just cut and paste the plot outline from IMDB:

A blonde actress is preparing for her biggest role yet, but when she finds herself falling for her co-star, she realizes that her life is beginning to mimic the fictional film that they're shooting. Adding to her confusion is the revelation that the current film is a remake of a doomed Polish production, 47, which was never finished due to an unspeakable tragedy.
This is by far the most confusing and yet interesting film for any lynch fan to see. Weirder than Blue Velvet, more confusing than Mulholland Drive. Yes basically David Lynch pulls together a bunch of side projects (including the shorts "rabbits") and pulls off making a 3 hour film.
Hard to follow? Yes.
But for some reason you keep watching not knowing what the hell is going to happen next. The furthest thing from predictible imaginable.
Want to twist your brain around and around?
Go Buy Inland Empire. It's on sale right now at Best Buy for 17.99.
I'm a Lynch fan since the days of Twin Peaks so I give this one a 7/10. If it made sense to the majority of people it would have scored higher.


This Synopsis seems better to me-
A wealthy debutante finds herself, inadvertently and without her accord, by way of an ancient Eastern European witch's magic curse, in a movie about a girl in the movies ... and yet trying to get out -- all while living two lives, per rules of David Lynchian reality paradigms: one as a nobody in suburban America, possibly a part-time prostitute, just trying to get by; and one as a nobody in Eastern Europe, again possibly a prostitute (and all the while watching some strange sit-com / soap-opera / talk-show about rabbits, or humanoid-rabbits, with an awful, chilling laugh track), just trying to get by -- until she later discovers that we are all in the movies, and that Hollywood is indeed the end of the Yellow Brick Rode, and that the laugh track that we hear is all in our minds; and that at the same time there is the Sinister and Evil aspect behind the whole drama being the knowledge now gained: that everyone is a prostitute in some weird way, just trying to get by.

Rush Hour 3

Rush Hour 3 aka the career of Chris Tucker.

Seriously what's his last 3 movies? Rush Hour 1, 2 and 3.

Chan and Tucker meet up again this time in Paris, not New York. This movie gives you all the stuff you got from 1 and 2. Comedy, Martial Arts, and a guy that looks like he's 8 feet tall. It's been a few days since I screened it so I won't summarize the plot. Basically entertaining stuff but nothing special. I laughed maybe 3 times which is one more than I did for UnderDog.
In a nutshell not a terrible movie just average.

and while we're at it so I don't have to knock out 2 blogs...
Underdog- 5/10

Bowling Scores 8-7-07

Once again my comptuer fucked up and I've been without one for like a week. You never know how much of a crutch the internet is until your without it. Thank god I'm not strapped with a cell phone.

222, 171, 221, 191 805 Series

The night started off well and I didn't leave any open frames in game 1 until the last ball of the 10th frame. The 10th frame became a curse tonight. Second game I hit the pocket and leave a 5-7 split. ruining any chance of a 2. Third game should have been much better as well and the 4th game I leave the exact same split with the first ball in the 10th. 5-7 split city. I failed to convert these and had to settle with just above a 800 series tonight.

As for our team we are not contending or even near the playoffs. This was position night and next week is the sweeper week which we will not be playing for anything so it's just a week to relax and bowl.
As I said before my computer crashed and I didn't post scores from last week but here they are just for the hell of it 2 weeks late:

206, 196, 215, 205 822 Series.

Not much different.
Winter league starts not too much longer after summer league gets over. I'll keep on rollin...
