In the garage, with a shotgun, a rubber chicken, my cat, a RealDoll named Tsuki, a 6oz swordfish steak, a Captain Caveman decoder ring, a picture of the 1973 Dodgers, Zoomie's foot fetish, the occasional stripper to beat me up, 5 nicotine patches, a vial of Family Guy Anti Bacterial Soap, the occasional call from Suze, the occasional smoo, Avast AntiVirus, Mosh's Magical Marsupials, a bottle of Crisco, Spybot - Search & Destroy, the dude who pooped in the tuba, a PitBull named "Diesel", a limited edition 'Tickle Me Elmo', a Darth Vader mask, Terry Fader's turtle puppet, a bag of Ol'Roy dog food, a $5 gift certificate to "Biz-E-G's 'Lapdances and Laundry'", Lisa Lisa from the Cult Jam, the fabled "TSi CockRing Set", the new TSi "Paddle Me Palin" doll, a 250cc syringe full of empscum, a "Hello Kitty" tongue piercing kit, a pirated copy of WinRAR, a roasted turkey leg, my "Police Squad" box set, and K_o_C's non-used tube of Anal Eaze, I feel safe ...
I first heard the premise for the movie and thought it was very intriguing. But I had also heard from a couple of people that it was a "chick flick" because it had Brad Pitt and all this love and emotion throughout.
Turns out, it's a fantastic movie. One of the better movies I have seen in a long time. I'd consider it sort of like a Forrest Gump type dramatic movie, with it's ups and downs (mostly downs). It was pretty amazing.
Loved the cinematography, and the music. The way they made Brad and hottie Cate Blanchett look like teenagers was incredible. Before watching the movie I had questions like how is an old man born and what happens when he grows infinitesimally young - does he just "pop" out of existence? The movie did a pretty good job at answering both questions.
IMDB has it ranked 8.5/10 with nearly 30,000 votes.
I thought Gran Torino was almost as good, and the Wrestler was unbelievable. I was close to tears during that movie. A true guy's movie that can move you like no other. I haven't been pulled into a movie like that in years. Mickey Rourke WILL be getting best actor. No doubt.
