      Which explains why you are damaged goods. What's my excuse? :twisted:
      There's a terrible price to be paid for being even a halfway serious student of American pop culture. I"m lucky to be able to walk & talk...

        Can you cut the cryptic stuff and just tell us?

          Hey, I remember watching that movie about 40 years ago on afternoon tv, just after Garfield Goose on WGN. At the time I thought it was great. I think they escape the shrews by using garbage cans upside down and walking away.

            For a really awful movie, watch the first Pre movie Prefontaine. The horror of watching the stadium clock countdown to 0:00.00 during the memorial service at Hayward and everyone cheering still leaves me cringing.

It did have Broderick Crawford, Lon Chaney Jr., Charles Bronson (who was pumped, almost steroidal looking) and William Talman (Perry Mason's Hamilton Burger), but was ham-handed beyond belief.
              WTH were you doing in a cabin near the Sparkling City by the Sea??? Writing a manifesto? :lol:

                  Well, then that does it. I'm a fully three-quarters serious student. I'll have to stop typing soon, as I intend to chew some gum.

                      I did and I couldn't figure it out. Unless you're talking about Madagascar?

                        Ha! Mindless violence indeed!

                        No, I was talking about Punisher: War Zone - a truly dreadful movie. The 2004 Punisher film was great.


                        Tuesday is the DVD release of The Dark Knight - I'll be at Wal-Mart on my way home from work that day!!

                        I'm reading lotsa buzz for it getting Oscar noms for Best Picture, Director, and Supporting Actor. (Bale is underappreciated in it - plus it also deserves a Screenplay nod)

                          No wonder I could not figure it out. I'd never heard of the 2004 version.

                            I think you guys are missing the point about "bad" films. Something like Plan 9 is a classic and at least makes most of us laugh. Anyone who makes bad films and is later portrayed by Johnny Depp (i..e Ed Wood) couldn't be THAT bad!

                            I think we've been through this before, but there are some really bad running films, much worse than anything from Ed Wood, who at least could entertain us. How about the one where Ryan O'Neal played a marathoner ("The Games"?) or the woman who ran Boston and crawled to the finish line in the dark.

                              I especially like the scene where he revealed he had been secretely training by running the entire marathon course every night for weeks? months?..

                                182 miles per week? Wasn't that an easy recovery week for Lindgren? :wink:
