I did have something to write about today

The movie last night! The movie was Feast, produced by Wes Craven, Matt Damon, and Ben Affleck. Is it just me or do those names like not belong together? So the movie was a horror/comedy.
I'll let that sink in.

Horror. And. Comedy.

Nothing like a merge turning into an accident. I didn't like it. It was alright, but not something I would have paid to see. It was extremely gory, lots of monsters eating people and people chopping monsters up and blood and vomit everywhere. And a guy actually rotting while alive. The comedy part was actually humorous, but I don't see mixing comedy with horror, you can't possibly get into a scary movie and then laugh at something and go back to being scared. No. It just doesn't happen. They gave no reason for the monsters being there. It was just like these people were in a bar and the monsters just showed up. I really wish I hadn't eaten before we left for the theater because I walked out feeling queasy, and that's not my style. Oh, and one of the stars looked a lot like K-Fed. My sister and I turned to eachother and both said "Is that him?" at the same time. Here is what my verdict is: Blah

And another thing I wanted to add for today, my son better not see a commercial for this thing because I will not buy one at FORTY FUCKING DOLLARS until it mops my floors and takes the damn garbage out. Good thing he still loves the one we got him at Build-A-Bear, I can always buy a different outfit or something and pretend it's a new one...I'm thinking the red demon could use a Halloween costume this year, he could be dressed as Tigger! HA! (Update: the red demon has been 'retired' from the Workshop, and Cookie is on his way out, too. They are planning on bringing in different Sesame Street characters in this season. Good luck with that B-A-B!) (And yes, i have an inside scoop on B-A-B, I know someone who works there part time!)

Well for $40 bucks Girlie Girlie won't be getting one either and up until seeing the link you provided I considered.

Thanks for the movie review. I will give it a pass as well.

I like your rating system. Would that be "One Tongue Out?"

Also, I think that new Elmo is a little creepy.

The only horror slash comedy that works is Shaun of the Dead.

Love it.

jenny, I beg to differ! The best and only Comedy/Horror is Bruce Campbell vs The Army of Darkness
