Bad things start happening to the kids and the kids blame our heroes, who are not in any way, shape or form to blame. Hilarity ensues. Very ****ing funny. I don't think I liked it as much as JD, but it's a damn good time.
    Watched this last night after reading this review. I liked it. It wasn't a complete laugh out loud sort of movie for me, had it's moments, but it was still entertaining, which was exactly what I wanted. It was a solid B- sort of movie. Nothing to scream to my friends about, but if they ask I'll say it's a movie worth catching on Netflix. Recommended

    Aw c'mon...the bees/chainsaw scene was pretty clever. Like I told Adgy, you would have enjoyed it more with a crowd, that was how this flick was meant to be seen. Still, glad you liked it.

I don't suppose you saw that Burroughs documentary that came out last year (I think?), did you? Anyone else see it? I've never really been able to get into Burroughs. Tried listening to some of his spoken word stuff in high school, too, thanks to his working with Ministry and Kurt Cobain, but it never really did much for me. I think I still have "The Priest They Called Him" somewhere, though. Might give it another shot.

    It was just little things. I don't want to make it sound like I didn't like the movie. I just feel like I knew what was going to happen before any of it happened (which I blame on the trailer and seeing it fifty times or whatever) and felt like I've seen the same story done better. Even though I can't tell you where.
    I have watched it, you might be surprised.

    Not really...surprising about the...um...the watching bit. But yeah, one of the good things about the fact that Naked Lunch was adapted into a film is that one can now say if they adapted that novel they can adapt anything. Lol! But like Gescom said, it's more of a combination of different texts and his life as whole than a straight adaption. Watching docs about his life sort of shows the weirdness and ideas associated with the man and how Cronie made a film that tried to capture while referencing the novel when it was useful.

    And the commentary on the Naked Lunch DVD is swell. It has both Cronenberg and Weller who is all sort of academic like and adds to the film's background. I heard he teaches college somewhere. Hahaha! Imagine walking to a classroom and realizing that your professor looks like Robocop! :O Holy ****, that would be awesome, but it only happens to me in dreams. :(

    And Adgy, do what I did, stay up all night with a pot of coffee and just keep reading Naked Lunch until it's finished, dammit! You won't get a lot of it but your artsy cred immediately goes up just by reading it. Hahaha!

    Just three bucks? :O I got it in the Warner Bros Hitch set. Hahaha! It has stuff like Dial M for Murder and North by Northwest. Some good stuff to be had at Big Lots. Not just stuff like the Swamp Thing which I got for 3 bucks too.

    I liked "don't lean on that post" recurring and eventually nailing the sheriff. I found that LOL funny. The bee's nest, well, it was funny, but the kid running next to him and what eventually happened was even more funny.

    It's been a few hours and I still feel a little sick to my stomach.
    I honestly wish that I had not seen it. ****ed up world.

    The Burroughs Doc, you mean? How was it?

    One thing I forgot to mention when I originally posted this is that while I was watching the movie, I realized how much I ****ing love Peter Weller. I feel like I've only seen him in a handful of films, but he's ****in' cool.

    And Adgy, do what I did, stay up all night with a pot of coffee and just keep reading Naked Lunch until it's finished, dammit! You won't get a lot of it but your artsy cred immediately goes up just by reading it. Hahaha!
    I don't drink coffee, but I'll keep the all-nighter suggestion in mind.

    Just three bucks? :O I got it in the Warner Bros Hitch set. Hahaha! It has stuff like Dial M for Murder and North by Northwest. Some good stuff to be had at Big Lots. Not just stuff like the Swamp Thing which I got for 3 bucks too.
    Yeah, I see good **** there all the time. Most of it I already have, but it's still good ****. And they have Blu-Rays now!

    Illegal

    Watched this last night. Nice performance by Anne Coesens in the lead role. But that's about all I can say that was very good about the film. The message(s) of the film, the inhumanity of deporting illegal aliens and the paternalistic forces that oppress women, is/are used like a cudgel throughout the movie. Too many holes and the character development is distinctly absent. Maybe worth watching for Coesens' performance, but that's about it. Can't recommend this one.

    Original, clever, charming, and pretty damn funny. Smiled a lot and lol'd a few times. I see what you guys mean about seeing it in a crowd--bet that'd be fun.
