31 Movies

Stolen from Avitable, the meme master. View his inferior responses here.

This is supposed to be a 31 days of movies thing, but I'm going to do it my way and condense it into a shorter series of posts. Further note that I'm tired and overworked and over-sharted and so my answers may not be entirely coherent, much like a lot of my recent e-mails. And I won't bother going in order. And I don't promise to do them all. Fuck off if any of this is an issue. But I do promise to intersperse my words with random pictures of bunny. I'm not entirely cruel.

Example of random bunny.

Day #2: Least Favorite Movie – Manos: the Hands of Fate. This movie fails to rise to the level of trash. It’s not so bad that it’s good – it’s so bad that it’s boring. It’s an exercise in sheer incompetence made for about twelve cents. The MST3K guys tried to lampoon it, but the running joke was that there wasn’t enough at which to poke fun. Close runner-up: Chaos. It’s torture porn that often inspires anger in the viewers due to the unrealistically stupid actions the characters take.

Day #11: First Movie You Saw In Theaters – Star Wars. That’s a hell of a first experience for a seven year old kid who had never even heard of science fiction. It’s been all downhill ever since.

Day #12: The Last Movie You Saw In Theaters – it was so good I don’t remember. Last ones I saw that stuck with me – Inception and Salt.

Day #30: Favorite Re-Make – 3:10 to Yuma. It’s a rare example of a remake I appreciated more than the original.

3:10 to Yuma was an excellent movie. I liked it more than I thought I would.

I'm surprised you can remember the first movie you saw in the theaters. I can't. Shit, I can barely remember the last movie I saw in the theater, which I believe was No Strings Attached, but I can't be sure.

I liked the 3:10 to Yuma remake, but I do prefer the original.

Nice Bunny.

Salt blew. Speaking of blowing, nice bunny.

Willy Wonka was the first movie I ever saw in a theater and Norwegian Wood was the last. The Bunny you posted makes me forget everything in between...

That was a good remake. I've never actually seen the original.
