Not the in-depth doc the man deserves but this will do until one is made.
Sam Kinnison is the man. Not was, but is because even though he has been dead for years no one has come close to filling the void he left. Sam was light years ahead of his time. His bits range from marriage to AIDS and are every bit as offensive, hilarious and genius as they were 25 years ago. This doc is made in the "standard" form that you have probably seen a million times; talking heads cut with clips of stand up and old videos. This style of doc has been done to death and is the easy/lazy way out but at least the talking heads are people (mostly fellow comics) who had personal relationships with Sam and not a bunch of flavor of the month jerk offs (F U Leno. I can say with complete confidence that Kinnison would HATE who you are and what you stand for now). The best parts of the film, other than the stand up, are the personal stories and remembrances from the comics and I really wish there was more of that. Sam was an amazing talent who led a very interesting tragic, painful, and unique life and held a one of a kind world view. It really is time someone gave his story the attention and recognition it deserves. I mean come on, an ex-preacher turned stand up comic/womanizer/drug addict with a rock star F IT ALL attitude!!!??!! How has that story not been told properly? While this documentary isn't all it could be, it is entertaining none the less and is perfect for people who are new to Kinnison........... The director of the Wild Thing video talking about the shoot and the excess that went along with it is worth the price of admission alone. YOU WALKED ALL OVER MY HEART SAM!!!! I HOPE YOUR HAVING THE BIGGEST PARTY HELL HAS EVER SEEN!!!! DO A LINE WITH THE BIG GUY FOR ME!!!! OH! OH! OOOHHHHH!!!!!!
The Sandlot (1993)
Forget the whole kid movie thing. This is just a good movie. And I will love it FOR-EV-VER
Some J Off said that he and his group of friends use this movie as their benchmark for bad movies!!! What I find scary about this statement is not just that he didn't like the flick but that he knows other people with such crappy taste. It is a simple fact of nature that Sandlot kicks much ass. Sorry man I didn't write the rules.
The truth is that even tho I was the age of the kids in the movie when I first saw it The Sandlot still holds up today, some 15 years later. For me The Sandlot falls in the Goonies, Princess Bride, Back to the Future, Time Bandits etc... category of PG rated movies I watched and loved as a kid that I still love just as much if not more today. The kids are all truly good actors but none of them have "made" it as adults. That sucks for them, but for us, the viewer it makes it easier to watch. It makes it a bit difficult to watch movies with cute innocent kids when all you can think about is there legendary tolerance to cat tranquilizers. So if you have kids it is nothing short of your duty to show them this flick. But even if you don't have kids, and didn't see it when you were a kid you will still dig it. Like I said it is an actual fact that The Sandlot kicks ass.
Of course it's French...............
I clicked the spoiler box because I don't want to get banned. While I'm not sure that this is a spoiler I thought I would be cautious. So here it is; this movie is about Babies. It is a 90 something min movie about Babies. They do baby stuff and act like a bunch of freakin' Babies. Seems more like a really long version of some crappy YouTube link yer newly knocked up sister would send you than a movie.
Please don't get me wrong. I love Babies. They are cool and really funny to hang around (until they turn into "kids") But cute is like pancakes. Really good, until you have to much and then they make you sick. ENOUGH with this cute crap! Please! It's making me hate pancakes.
