The Simpsons: Apocalypse Cow (2008)
No racism in this episode, or in this series.
The Simpsons has something for everyone. Homer is stupid, Marge represses her anger, Lisa is a PC Feminist, Bart is destructive. Dr. Hibbert has been seen in a Mr. T mohawk, an 80's fade, a hippy afro and a Cosby sweater. Apu owns the Kwikee-Mart. Krusty's dad is a Hasidic Rabbi. Ned Flanders and his brood are super-Christians.
Most of the characters on The Simpsons are "white" - (well, yellow). Cletus and Brandine are hillbilly caricatures. No one is actually like this. Anyone calling this racism is very silly. And considering all the crap "white" people have given other colors and races over the centuries, I think a little redneck fun-poking ain't gonna hurt no one no how. Lighten up, y'all.
The best movie about a skateboarding pup ever!
This cartoon couldn't be better. It's the day before Pochacco's birthday, and he's skateboarding around looking for his friends. He hopes to have a grand party with them the next day, but they all seem busy! This upsets our hero pup, but without giving away any spoilers I can safely say don't worry, everything's gonna be just great! Then in the movie "Excitement at the Carrot Patch", Pocchacco and his best friend Choppi come through for someone when he really needs them. And we get to meet a fun new character too!
You won't be able to get enough of Pochacco, his friends, his neighborhood, his adorable house and his quest for fun. Buy it now! woot.
This is not a paid endorsement. I just love Pochacco. fer real.
25 Lame (1999)
Finally MTV Targets my Demo!
I watch VH-1 way more than MTV these days, being that I am 38 years old and I cannot stomach Ashlee Simpson or MTV Spring Break (I do love Viva La Bam and Jackass though so go figure). But 25 Lame was so cool, going so far as to show Janeane smoking on the set (no! not in front of the children!) and talking about these videos as though they were at a mid -30's slumber party. I have it on tape so I am lucky, but I agree they should include it on a DVD somewhere. I feel like they were completely talking to me and people my age (who started out puberty with MTV and grew up with it) and it was way cool.
Best lines; John Stewart "What do you mean?? They're walking in the CLOUDS! Why must you be so cynical?"
Chris Kattan: "Look! Rico Suave!" and then later with the same sombrero and tiny guitar "Look! Macarena!"
Chris Kattan: "Why are they at Home Depot?"
Chris Kattan, donning moustache "I'm Oates!"
Denis Leary accusing Janeane of liking Good Will Hunting because she said "The boys were cute."
excellent show, and I miss it!
This show was great, I would definitely buy this on DVD. Louis has
the best way of talking to various nutjobs and asking questions
without belittling them or trying to make them look foolish; he just
lets them do that on their own! He appears sincere and just out for
information, which I believe he is. It's kind of like those Daily Show
segments without the smarm. I have nothing more to add, but the
imdb wants me to write at least 10 lines, so here we go; this show
rules, it's so great, I love it, yahoo, woo! Yes! this show rules, it's so
great, I love it, yahoo, woo! Yes!this show rules, it's so great, I love
it, yahoo, woo! Yes! Bring this back, Bravo!
Reel Wild Cinema (1994)
one of the best campy shows ever
Late Night on Sunday the USA Network would show Sandra B. hosting a series about B-movies, drive-in horror flicks and exploitation films from the 50's and 60's. VERY cool! I think it would last a lot longer if it were brought back today, since there is more of an appreciation for all things "offbeat" and weird. Way back in 1994 (chuckle) I guess there just wasn't a market. But you can still buy the movies from Something Weird Video, which rocks.
Jason & Mena have chemistry!
This movie is probably not that well known, but it's real cute and
funny and smart. I like Mena Suvari a lot, and here she is the cutest
little "grunge goth" (as Alcott says) girl who can't afford school
unless she gets a job, and can't get a job unless she stays in the
city, and can't stay in the city because her professor-boyfriend is a
jerk. Enter Paul. He helps out and conveys the whole dorky-guy
thing really well. Noah, Adam and Chris are hilarious (the
Christian Slater Guy and the James Spader Guy) and there are
lots of funny quotes. "I would never 'hit your bitch'!" And I liked
Paul's hair before the haircut. For the record. Watch this movie, it's
My So-Called Life (1994)
It's not red... it's Crimson Glow.
No one is perfect. Not the beautiful yet brainless Jordan, not the
best-friend-in-trouble Rayanne, not the supersmart Brian, not the
seemingly-together Sharon or the also seemingly-together Patty
Chase. And not Angela. She disses friends, lies, cuts class and all
the minor things everyone does at 15. And it's no big deal, just part
of so-called life. Every character has a tie-in with every other
character in some way... they all "connect" at least once, and think
things about each other, good and bad. They are all vulnerable,
even the most confident of them. And everyone with the worst traits
also has such good traits that you can see both sides of their
story. You can see Angela's view, and Patty's view, and no matter
who you agree with, you can understand where each is coming
from. Even Patty's mother, who appears to be a complete
meddling witch, turns out to have a side that you can identify with.
And that's the important thing; not only do you have a view of the
kids' interpersonal relationships, but the adults' too, and how you
can sometimes feel 15 years old even when you are 40. It's just so
rich and layered and non-cliched, that it stands up to repeated
viewings and doesn't get dated. AMAZING show! Love it.
Cool Low-Fi Doc with a Downhome Feel
I caught this on IFC and enjoyed it thoroughly. It's so cool to take a small slice of life that a lot of people don't even know about (living in NJ, I had no clue there were such things as Fireworks Stands) and interviewing the people that run them... from the little kids to the old couple to the young mullet-haired dudes. I like learning about these things and these people I never knew existed. Folks in TX take their fireworks seriously. There's even a Fireworks Superstore. Who knew? I love the low-fi feel and the actual people and dialogue of the time and the place. It's about Americana... and it's entertaining.
Donnie Darko (2001)
giant bunnies are not evil
Donnie's not crazy. He just sees a giant rabbit that tells him to do
things. As the film moves on you begin to piece together what is really
happening here, and more than likely you'll need to do a bit of thinking
and re-thinking, viewing and re-viewing to really make it all come
together. And even then you may have questions. Movies like this are
great. Some people don't like to think too much when seeing a film, and
that's fine. This film is for those who love to figure things out.
Jake Gyllenhaal is mesmerizing. His slanted little smile, his sweet yet
cynical demeanor. I just love Donnie, he's excellent. Hard to believe
he's also The Bubble Boy. And having his real sister (who was so cool in
Cecil B. Demented) play his sis is also great. Cheeseball Supreme
Patrick Swayze plays what he should always play - a humorous parody
character - and should never make another pic where he is the Leading
You won't figure this movie out for awhile, and that, to me, is fun. If
that's not fun to you then you might not enjoy it so much. The final
scene with the song over the various characters' "resolutions" is
haunting and sad.
Perhaps when people are doing things that seem destructive or crazy,
they are just working on a different plane. You never know................
The Smokers (2000)
heavy irony, heavy makeup
I think this movie is laden with heavyhanded irony; while a lot of it is
inexplicable, poorly edited and just plain strange, the main thing I
took away from it was that while these girls thought they were starting
a "revolution", they were only hurting themselves.
Case in point; the girls try to get back at Guy #1 by trying to force
sex on him at gunpoint. It fails, but they think it was a success. The
rest of the males in town think it's hot, and want it to happen to them.
A couple of more feeble attempts are made at controlling males at
gunpoint, but also fail miserably. Instead of realizing that they are
getting into these situations themselves, and allowing themselves to be
used by guys, they get even angrier at the men of the world.
The whole dynamic of the girls' lives seems to be that they are rich
prep-school stoners who dress flamboyantly and have rigid, antiseptic
relationships with their parents. The decor of their rooms and the decor
of the girls themselves is probably monstrously tacky on purpose; not
meant to be taken literally. It sort of shows you what's in their heads;
fluff, feathers, glitter and smoke.
In their desperate attempt to be feminist/radical/revolutionaries who
defend the honor of women everywhere, they take the completely wrong
path and wind up raped, messed up and worse. They allowed themselves to
be used, and then got furious at the men for using them. They handled
the whole thing in a childish, super-hero-wannabe way. And they paid for
I think Thora Birch looked cute in those goofy getups. Even though her
character made little or no sense. I saw her as the ultimate
rich-kid-acting-out-against-parental-control archetype. And her
now-learned sister gives her a nice life lesson
