In other news, I have a headache. Anyone have any nuprin?
Meanwhile in big news this week, Hell has frozen over, The cows have come home (MOO!) and...
DC CAB HAS WON MOVIE LOTTO!
That's right, the Joel Schumacher directed epic about the plight of Cab drivers in 80's Washington, DC actually defied all odds and won out amongst it's peers in a particularly tame evening of DVD Survivor! It came down to the aforemention Hack-sterpiece and Lock, Stock, & Two Smoking Barrells - and I must say, I really though there was no chance in hell of it's victory (an astonishing 4-2 win over Guy Ritchie's London gangster opus!). What does DC Cab have?
How about Mr. T crusading against the local Drug pusher/Pimp, who uses his blinged out classic auto to lure hapless teens into a life of drugs and debauchery ("It's that CAR Harold!").
Or perhaps the late Charlie Burnett, mentor to one Dave Chapelle, with a drug habit that would have made Richard Pryor blush! A roller wearing "dumb-ass nigger" with green rollers in his hair.
Best of hall, how about one Adam Baldwin (That's JANE from freakin FIREFLY!) playing wanna-be hack Albert "White bred chickenshit" Hockenberry. A man from the new south where we're all brothers!
You also get a politiking Bill Maher, That bailiff chick from Night Court, The Barbarian Brothers, and a coked out, conspiracy spewing Gary Busey (Bruce Lee aain't dead ya know. They got him kryptonized in a grain silo down in Chatworth and they're gonna thaw him out when the economy gets better!). Top it all off with a "cabbies foil kidnapping plot and get their own parade" plot, and you've got a winner!
Best obviously 80's flick of the 80's (The Irene Cara on the soundtrack is a dead giveaway).
I think the fact that i watched this religiously as a pre-teen says a lot for how i turned out.
Myself and Sarah watched king Kong last night, i liked it well enough first time around, though i was maybe a little let down. It's a good enough pic, stands with the first Jurassic Park anyway. Wasn't really any better second time around, and i fully expected it to play better in the confines of the film bunker - love the setup and the skull island stuff, but after that i think it slows down a tad. The New York stuff is just excessively pastiche. (look it up!)
That's it for now folks - stay frosty.
Don't let yer dick run your life... that's Mr. Rythm's good advice! Saved yer Ass! Only cost ya a quarter!
