Stupid Movie Goers!

Can someone please explain to me how Beverly Hills Chihuahua is the number one movie in America for the second week in a row? How is this possible? Or, I should say, how does this crap keep happening? I swear at the feet of Loki’s gym teacher that everyone in this stupid country has it in for decent films. I’m not entirely sure how the bimbos and rednecks can manage to keep going to see crap like this and Twilight, while simultaneously voting gems like Eagle Eye off the island?

Some of the best of the big budget movies of the last decade were panned by critics for no apparent reason, I think Eagle Eye is just the newest in a long line. The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise where every film was ripped to shreds, only to become the blue eyed child once the next sequel was released. Tim Burton’s re-adaption of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory which was torn apart by fans of a shitty former adaption on the grounds that they’d seen the Gene Wilder version first. And, of course, the fun and very fitting Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull that has more fanboys bitching than Wesley Crusher.

I don’t get it. Why do people praise idiocy and utter tardation? Why do people ash can perfectly good, engaging and fun films in favor of pure crap? Why do we need 800 Highschool Musical movies? Someone, please, help me out here. :S

Single For The Holidays?

It’s the holidays again, and of course I’m missing The Boyfriend like crazypants. Granted, I always miss him what with him living on the coast and me being smack dab in the middle of the country, but around this time of year when fall’s heading into overtime and the prospect of Thanksgiving, Samhain and Solstice without him is looming I realize how much I depend on his presence, even if it’s only via phonecalls or emails.

I know more than a few people aren’t as lucky, I’ve found the man for me and so many will be going through the motions of the holidays without those calls, cards, emails and general closeness from afar that I’ll be privilaged with. And yes, we all know that nobody wants to try services like eharmony that charge you an arm and a leg for something that shouldn’t cost a dime. Seriously, why go with one of those expensive matchmaking sites when you can search for free over at True.com? I mean, some of the features they’ve got like coaching center? Safer dating tips? That’s genius, I’m here to tell you. Plus, did I mention how free it is? It’s FREE, right here in River City! With a capital F and that rhymes with … I don’t think anything rhymes with F, and that stands for FREE, lol.

Footlight Parade – Love it, Sorta.

One of the greatest films ever shown, has everyone and everything in it, including Jimmy Cagney. The movie is FOOTLIGHT PARADE, one of my all-time favorite movies. In fact, it’s such a favorite that I know most of it by heart – though I just rented the DVD and found out how much they really cut out of this film.

Apparently you can’t show blantant racism in the form of the ever popular “Blackface Number” on television anymore, which is a shame because we could all use a little retardation in our lives, lol. SO many films during the War were like this, one of the most infamous being Holiday Inn. I realize they weren’t meant that way, people thought it was witty and progressive. Charming, even. That’s some crazy crap, dude, Holiday Inn is seen as some big family film! I wonder what AAAABRAHAM would say about this?

 

Both Hands and a Flashlight, Anyone?

Okay, I find it insane how many established, respectable and professional film critics have reviewed Eagle Eye without having seen it. Usually they get a screener, but it seems like nobody on earth knows what this film is about, and I’ve read all sorts of weird things in reviews that make absolutely no sense – you would have had to have skipped the film to believe them.

Such as, you ask? Well, first of all Rachel’s not Jerry’s mom, so at least 2 critics are wrong. Also, Eagle Eye is *not* about vampires – wtf. That’s Twilight, people. Plus Shia LaBeouf’s character Jerry Shaw? *NOT* a teenager. What kicks my ass about this is that the reviewers in question have given Eagle Eye bad reviews and they’ve obviously never seen the film. TFU!

For Better Hallway Vision

Okay, I’m really, really tired of getting horrible migraines just from doing my job. I’ve got to stare at this computer screen for hours and hours on end, and it’s killing my head. My issue, I think, and what is giving me these horrible headaches is that my eyes are bad and I haven’t been able to buy a new pair ofeyeglasses, or even get my eyes checked for over 12 years because I’m poor, to be honest, and I can’t afford things that a lot of people take for granted.

My best bet is to try ZenniOptical.com, I’m dead set on trying them out because you can get a pair of perscription glasses with stylish frames for as low as $8 per pair, plus they have a wide variety of lenses from single vision to tinted, progressive to bifocal and a lot more and they offer them at these rock bottom prices because they don’t spend all their money in advertising and they sell directly to you, no middle man. Find out what people are saying about them HERE. They can afford to offer such low prices because they manufacture their own frames instead of outsourcing to another company for that. It’s definately worth a look if, like me, you’re flat broke all the time!

Halloween Costumes

So, Jon and Don have maybe the best costumes this year that they’ve ever had – and I’m jealous! They’re double dating with their wives as Hank and Dean Venture from the Venture Brothers cartoon on Adult Swim. I so want something other than Sadako for my costume this year, but fat chance.

I’m so tired of living out in the boonies, where you can’t find a 7-11 or any Halloween Costume Stores to save your life – in fact, the closest mall is something like 140 miles away. It’s pretty much impossible to get a decent, quality Halloween costume which royally sucks because Halloween’s one of my favorite holidays.

I sort of want to try that link out, though, because until October 10, 2008 you get free shipping if you spend $60 or more at their store, plus if your costume’s wrong, doesn’t fit or you changed your mind they have a quick and easy returns policy.

I think I’m gonna go the cheap way this year and go as Sadako again, because I already have a white dress and black wig, but if I ever have the cash to buy a costume online then that’s definately where I’m going first!
