Last night, a filum double-fe–

*I’m interrupting this blog post to bring you an irrelevant newsflash: the guy who just delivered my groceries was Hot. As. Fuck. And smelled incredible. And had a gorgeous nice pretty Nigerian accent. And he bowed to me on his way out, which is outrageous. Since when did Fairway start sending hot men in button-downs wearing Givenchy cologne to deliver groceries? Don’t they know those poor men might get jumped by post-menstrual women?*

–ature: Talladega Nights and Snakes on a Plane.

Ricky Bobby was about as entertaining as I expected it to be. Lots of easy laughs, nothing to write blog about. It weren’t no Elf, if you knows what I means.

The previews were the best part. I’m looking forward to Stranger Than Fiction and The Illusionist, though that less than The Prestige. Two presto-change-o movies, each starring thinking-woman’s beefcake: The Illusionist with Ed Norton, to whom I feel I owe some collegiate allegiance, and The Prestige, with Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman, either of whom I’d lend my loins on little to no notice. Hm. I’ll see both.

Borat looks like seven kinds of hilarity. Sometimes I feel dirty for liking Sacha Baron Cohen so much, but the man is funny, damnit.

Anyway, on to Snakes.

Kidding. I’m not gonna ruin it for y’all. But it was great. Everything I dreamed and more. Plus, having seen it late Thursday night, the theater was full of seeeeerious SOAPheads who were as funny as the film.

I’m off to seal my fate or pursue my destiny or somesuch (read: have a chat with the boss). TTFN.

    Dude! I so need to SoaP soon (but it appears that this is not my weekend. Le sigh). I’m also interested in The Illusionist, because the story sounds cool and I’ll admit to a slight crush on Edward Norton. He’s just a cool actor in my book — but he’s got a free pass with me thanks to Fight Club.

    firstly, i’ve gotta say i’m loving the new site and layout (i’m late, as usual, i know). i’m actually shades of jealous by how perty it is!

    secondly, i totally wanted to see ricky bobby, but i’ve decided to wait until it’s available for netflix or on cable or whatever. it’s funny tho — somebody else i know who saw it gave the same review: funny, but it ain’t no elf. :)
    as for snakes on a plane — i would agree. it was an awesomely bad movie that was even more fun b/c the rest of the audience was there for the ride too. not so sure how it would translate to dvd.

    We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.
    We had snakes, we had plane, we had passengers in pain.
    The flight attendant’s not gay, Keenan Thomspon saves the day.
    We had fangs, we had spit, we had stoner woman’s tit.
    Everybody to first class! A snake bit me in the ass!
    Grab an axe and take a whack: we’ve got snakes on crack.
    Rapper guy can live; snooty Brit: his life will give.
    Half the passengers will die (what happened to Korean kick-boxer guy?)
    I will write it in my blog: Dude, you NEVER kill the dog!
    Then when Sam Jackson grabs his tazer (blah, blah, something ryhming with “tazer”)
    A tear comes to my eye: I love that m@#$erf@#$ing guy!
    We had hisses, we had bites: more fun than “Talladega Nights”,
    And our lives won’t be the same after “Snakes On A Plane”.
