The Top Five Hate List

Thank you for the free book, Kirk.

The Top Five Hate List

Once again I've found five people to hate this time around. MC usually finds some interesting folks to hate on, I generally try to pick who ever he left out. Anyway, here are my top five.

5 Khloe Kardashian: You know her. She's the least attractive Kardashian out of the litter. So she got married to some B-ball player. Other than the reality show, what has she done other than be a sister to the hotter girl that has a sex tape? Oh, she had that DUI and ended up in jail. There was a time when only real stars made headlines when they got hitched. Why does this smell like a Reality Show stunt? Can someone fall in love in a matter of weeks and then get married? I'm giving this less than a year.

4 EVERYONE involved in this brutal fight: The kid that was f'ed up (he died) in the video was an honor student. As far as I can tell, wasn't a member of any gang. Fellow black people, it is time to stop acting like this.

3 Kirk Cameron: He went out and changed the book Origin of Species (Darwin's book) sort of. He added new 50 pages. These pages are placed in the beginning to discount everything else in the Darwin book. The Special Cameron edition will be given away for free at the top 50 colleges. Doesn't that seem kind of counter productive? Most college students probably had no idea about Darwin's work, except for a limited amount of stuff in high school, and you just gave them a free book with his teachings and your 50 pages of propaganda. Won't they go on and read the rest of the book with Darwin's stuff too? Doesn't that defeat the purpose? Please, someone give Cameron a Fireproof II or another sitcom to keep him busy. (Here's an amusing rebuttal. This girl rips him apart. And, her accent is hot.)

2 The Producers of Jon and Kate Plus Eight: Uh, you just fired (not really fired) Jon from the reality show and now it is just Kate and her kids. Perhaps it is about time to pull the plug on this show. The damage the show has done to the family continues to grow. You would think Kate would stop the show, but she refuses to see that the show is destroying them. (Word has come down that Jon wants back into the family. Really?)

1 Starbucks: No, not the character from BSG, but the damn store that sells coffee. Somehow, they've convinced people that buying overpriced coffee is being 'hip'. If I see one more hipster walk around with a cup of Starbucks, I'm going to knock it out of their hands. Now, they have instant coffee. You can instantly drink terrible coffee. Instant coffee has always tasted bad. Now, it has that stupid logo.

A couple of bits

Jimmy: No one ever remembers The Tommyknockers

A couple of bits

~I've watched the entire third season of Dexter on DVD in a matter of days. While certainly not as good as the second season, it was still a pretty good season. Jimmy Smits is freaking great in this season. I have to say I was really impressed with his character arc. Debra Morgan finds another guy to bang. The only weak stuff was the marriage and children subplots.

~Fox actually deals with the Gay Issues fairly well on the show Glee. This is Fox and they handled the a gay character coming out to his father rather decently. Then they threw in a teen pregnancy. Well done, Fox.

The New A Nightmare on Elm (remake) trailer

The New A Nightmare on Elm (remake) trailer

Make sure to watch it here (higher version)

I have to say the trailer looks pretty good. Jackie Earle Haley (Rorschach) looks creepy. I do like the reveal of the new Freddy Krueger makeup too. Also, it looks like this movie will have a serious tone like the first movie.

My only grip with this remake is the group of teenagers seems a bit too bland like the other recent slasher films. Can we have interesting characters in these horror movies?

Guy on a bicycle in New York gives people hailing cabs 'high fives'

Guy on a bicycle in New York gives people hailing cabs 'high fives'

Their reactions are freaking priceless.

You have to see one guy get pissed and chase after the biker. The woman saying, WTF was funny too.

The ones were the people were pleased after the unannounced high five made my day. Some of them have the biggest smiles on their faces after that.

I'm tempted to try this in Louisville. But most people only hail cabs on Friday and Saturday nights here. I'm not sure the drunk hot girl or the drugged frat boy will take it that lightly. And, I'm a big guy and I could dislocated someone's arm or knock their heads off.

BTW, his mountain/hybrid bike is very nice. (Hybrid means a cross between a mountain bike and a road bike)

Does anyone have anymore info on this dude?

Roman Polanski: Coming to America?

Roman Polanski: Coming to America?

((Polanski, 76, was taken into custody trying to enter Switzerland on Saturday, Zurich police said. A spokesman for the Swiss Justice Ministry said Polanski was arrested upon arrival at the airport. ))

I was riding my bike near River Road and looked at my cell phone for news. The CNN site read; Roman Polanski Arrested. My first thought was, “Holy Cow they got him”. Sure did take them long enough. I at first didn't know much about the history involved in incident and a 13 year old girl.

I thought maybe there was more to the story. Maybe Polanski was railroaded? Then, I started reading about the rape incident. In my mind, he became a major creep to me. He not only took advantage of a 13 year old girl, he pleaded guilty and then ran away to France. What happened to personal responsibility?

Did I mention he was 44 at the time of the incident?

Part of me is happy to see him arrested. Every bad deed doesn't go unpunished.

Now, the other side of me does think it is a bit much to carry on with a case since 1977.

From CNN,

((There have been repeated attempts to settle the case over the years, but the sticking point has always been Polanski's refusal to return to attend hearings. Prosecutors have consistently argued that it would be a miscarriage of justice to allow a man to go free who "drugged and raped a 13-year-old child." ))

And, even the victim of the case wants the case dropped.

((Samantha Geimer filed court papers in January saying, "I am no longer a 13-year-old child. I have dealt with the difficulties of being a victim, have surmounted and surpassed them with one exception.))

At this point, he had to live with his cowardly actions for 32 years. I'm sure that bothered him. Plus, he had to look over his shoulder just in case someone picked him up.

However, people run from courts all the time. The government wants to get those people back as well. Why should Polanski be any different?

Then there is that horrid Rush Hour 3 cameo...

He probably won't be handed over to the US because of a few countries bitching about it.

I just wish the government was this gun-ho about other cases like this.

John Travolta admits that his son had autism

John Travolta admits that his son had autism

This is big news for people that keep up with Scientology and their beliefs.

From the LA Times,

(("He was autistic," Travolta told the court during the extortion trial. "He suffered from a seizure disorder."

Travolta said Jett suffered seizures every five to 10 days and that each seizure lasted around 45 seconds. Jett would often sleep for 12 hours after an episode.

Earlier today, the actor described the events on Jan. 2, the day of his son’s death.))

It has been stated that Scientology doesn't believe in autism. Keep in mind that the Travolta family kept saying that Jett was suffering from the Kawasaki Syndrome. Now, they freely admit it was autism. Why hide that fact from people? Wouldn't it have helped out millions of families suffering from the same issues if they came out with it from the get go?

Did Travolta's belief in the space church do harm to his child? I think it might be a good time for someone in the government to look into this. But, we know that won't happen.

I just hope this will open some people's eyes into the strange belief system behind this space church and see that these people are more harmful than believing in Xenu. Having a follower of Scientology actually admit to autism is certainly a start.

Of course, the church had this little spin on the issue. (Cape Cod Online)

(("The Church of Scientology has no position on autism," said Tommy Davis, a spokesperson from Scientology International. “As with any medical condition, the Church believes that these matters are best diagnosed and treated by a medial doctor. Scientologists can and do then also seek spiritual assistance." ))

You can already tell they're trying to spin this so none of the crap blows back on them. Also, make sure to notice the “Medical Doctor” mention and not anyone from the Physiology field.

Side note:

-Remember those reports of Travolta leaving the space church or at least considering it? I guess there was some truth to those rumors. Could we still see him leaving the Space Church?

-The two people that tried to extort Travolta's are horrible people.

'The Beautiful Life: TBL' Dead

I could make a lame ass Punked joke, but I won't.

One of the first “fails” of this fall TV lands on the heels of Mischa Barton.

The Beautiful Life dies a short death. The CW, which is barely a network, shot and killed the series after only two episodes. Wow, that is very FOX of you, CW.

From E!,

((This marks the first (and, assuredly, not the last by far) cancellation of the just-begun 2009-10 television season. ))

Congratulations I guess? Is there an award for that. Can Barton put that on her shelf somewhere?

((The Ashton Kutcher-produced show, about the trials and tribulations of the modeling world (which, on TV at least, involves a lot of sex and catfighting), was plagued with production problems from the start, starting with Barton's hospitalization for emotional exhaustion and post-op pain in July. ))

The Trails and Tribulations of Models doesn't sound like something people can identify with. Actually, I'm still trying to figure out why we still have a modeling and fashion industry. The fashion industry still can't get their elitist heads out of their collective skinny asses to see that most people aren't built like broomsticks. Most women aren't built like that, and thank goodness for that too.

Anyway, I'm glad this Kutcher series received the fail-hammer. Instead of rubber stamping all these series, how about less 'tweeting' and more on working on series with you name on it?

Since when did Ashton Kutcher become a powerhouse in TV? His claim to fame was starring in Dude Where's my Car and banging Bruce Willis' former squeeze.

At this moment, CW is still promoting the show on their Web Site!

Even funnier is Kutcher actually tweeted about people tuning into his show before the hammer came down.

((Don't miss the beautiful life tonight at 9/8 central on the CW ))

I wonder if this has something to do with the butterfly effect?

Heather Graham Still has you beat after getting canceled after one episode!

Obama and Ash take on the Army of Darkness?

Obama and Ash take on the Army of Darkness?

I heard this one on a review from I had to go looking for this one on the Internet. How does one mix Ash with President Obama? I'm not even sure, but there is a limited series coming out this fall. The story deals with Obama visiting a Comic Con and the Army of Darkness attacking.

What is strange is that Obama has shown up in a few comic books from various companies.

He had his own comic book along with John McCain.
I'm not making this up. Why does his suit look like a superhero outfit.
Spider-man and Obama team up. Was Obama a fan of SpiderMan III?
I guess green guys are a nice endorsement.

Meet Dave

Meet Dave

I guess little kids will find the scene with Eddie Murphy, a robot, pooping out twenty dollars bills and change. It was probably at this point Murphy started to reconsider his career in Hollywood. You don’t go from being in 48hrs to pooping out dollars bills in a dressing room and consider what happened to your career.

With really awful GCI and green screen, Meet Dave becomes one of Murphy’s worst movies since Pluto Nash. Actually, Meet Dave bears a lot of similarities to Pluto Nash. It should be noted that the same hack director was behind the shitty movie Norbit. Despite being a Fox movie, it is more in tune with a Disney movie made for the Disney channel.

The green screens are laughable and I’ve seen better work on Star Trek TNG. Watching a CGIed Murphy and Gabrielle Union is just embarrassing. The CGI is really bad.

Murphy plays two roles in the movie, neither one being of him in a fat suit thankfully. Murphy plays a robot/space ship named Dave Ming Cheng. The name is one of the few jokes that work in this so-called comedy. Inside, Murphy also plays the starship captain that commands the starship Dave. Confused yet? I certainly am. I’m confused as to how this is even funny. Why would Fox green light this concept?

Then there are many subplots and characters that are introduced, but later only take backseat at the climax of the movie. The movie sets up Elizabeth Banks and Murphy perhaps having a relationship, but it never goes anywhere. Is Fox too afraid of showing an interracial relationship? They could have had so much fun with the robot/dating jokes, but it is never to be.

Gabrielle Union fares a little better, but not by much. She is the third in command on the ship and kind of Murphy’s love interest.

Plot centers around a rock that can suck the water from the planet. The special rock is important to the aliens because it is the only way they see to save their own home planet. They travel to Earth in search of said rock. That pretty much sums up the plot.

This so-called family movie is not funny with some major plot holes. I won’t even get into the plot holes because it is not worth bothering.

If you like seeing Murphy sleepwalking through the entire film, then this is your movie. If you liked Pluto Nash and Norbit, you’ll love this movie. For the rest, avoid this piece of crap.

Screw you, Eddie Murphy.

Grade: F+

John Debney’s score is very good. It is too good for this type of movie.

Man, this is bad FX.


Gotta to catch them all!

Two Drunk Girls (Lions Fans?) get themselves arrested.

Two Drunk Girls (Lions Fans?) get themselves arrested.

This is priceless

When the entire crowd turns on you, you know you have had too many drinks.

From the description in the YouTube link ,

((this video's originator will remain anonymous.

"The two girls in front of us were drunk before the game started. They grabbed one of our signs and trashed it (real classy) because were Vikings fans, and then spent most of the first half mocking us instead of watching the game because the Lions were ahead.

They left their seats and we thought they were gone for good but somehow they managed to buy even more beer and get back to their seats. They were spilling beer on themselves, the seats, and some of the other fans. After they spilled quite a bit of beer on the guys in the row below them, they turned around and told them to SIT DOWN. One girl didnt like that so she poured the rest of her beer on his head. Then I knew it was time to start the camera :)" ))

I generally hate going to sporting events because they bore me. I hate some of the more drunken fans. This video is prime example of that. In the age of Kanye West and Joe Wilson, this is to be expected I guess.

There are a few things to point out.

-The Beer Guy in the yellow/green shirt tries and fails to defuse the tension.

-The black guy in the 81 shirt starts to get mad at the old man that keeps touching him. He also laughs at the two drunk girls.

-Who is the dumbass yelling “This is football!”?

-Watch the bald guy in the brown shirt.

-She attempt to attack the black guy in front of the cops! Of course she is drunk and falls over.

-Who is the idiot with the face paint on?

-Did someone sneak a boob grab?

There's going to be that awkward phone call from jail to their boyfriends/fathers.

Too much Megan Fox?

Megan Fox and her body

Everyone's been talking about the 'failure' of Megan Fox's new movie Jennifer's Body. Something tells me it will break even, and might receive more play on DVD. Like others, I also get the feeling Megan Fox is partially to blame for this.

I think people are just sick of her.

Since the first Transformers movie, she’s made some strange remarks about everything. And, to me it smells of PR people feeding her lines to keep her in the Google searches.

Such as this one from GQ

(("Look, I'm not a lesbian -- I just think that all humans are born with the ability to be attracted to both sexes. I mean, I could see myself in a relationship with a girl -- Olivia Wilde is so sexy she makes me want to strangle a mountain ox with my bare hands. She's mesmerizing. And lately I've been obsessed with Jenna Jameson, but...Oh boy."))

She wants to strangle an ox? Being obsessed with Jenna Jameson doesn’t score you any points either. Have you seen Jameson lately? Jenna is one of those names you throw out there as a generic pornstar.

Let’s also talk about this little gem. She talks about her Vajay-jay

(("Men are scared of powerful, confident vaginas. But I wasn't born with a special vagina."))

So, Megan Fox’s vagina is powerful, but no a special one. Thanks for clearing that up for me, Megan. I’m not even sure what the hell she’s even talking about here.

I think Megan Fox did more damage to her film and her career by contentiously dissing a director that did help start her career and talking about how boys are afraid of her hotness. Look, I think she is hot but I don't need her reminding me how scared I am of her hotness.

I'm all for honest, but someone needs to teach her about overexposure.

Test shot for Nicolas Cage as Superman from Superman Lives?

Test shot for Nicolas Cage as Superman from Superman Lives?

Something tells me it isn't. But you better believe there are some test photos out there.

Remember when Tim Burton took over the Superman Lives project back in the 90s? At one point, Nicolas Cage was set to take over the role of the new Superman. I remember this was a huge story at the time. Everyone reported on it. I didn't like the idea, and I got the feeling Burton cast Cage to get people talking about Superman Lives and to piss off comic book fanboys. You have to remember that Burton did the same thing with Michael Keaton in the Batman series.

Was Cage the right choice? Nope, not by a long shot.

Anyway, here's the story behind Nic Cage's involvement in Superman.

This was also when Tim Burton bumped Kevin Smith and his script off the production.

The only thing I liked from Burton's world of Superman was the Brainiac sketches.

More info.

Even more reading.

Here is the script to Kevin Smith's version of Superman Lives.

K-Fed will get "Fit"

K-Fed is fat and gets a reality show gig because of it.,,20307512,00.html


((The father of four, who was married to Britney Spears, is joining the cast of Celebrity Fit Club, a rep for VH1 confirms to PEOPLE))

Well, we all knew this was coming. We knew he was going to get either his own reality show or show up on someone else’s stupid show.

I have to wonder if he got fat in order to stay famous. Hey, stranger things have happened. Keep in mind he was a professional dancer before he started banging Britney Spears.

For a man that has four children, he hasn’t done much in lifting other than marrying someone rich.

((Also appearing on the seventh season of the show will be Federline's ex-girlfriend (and the mother of two of his kids) Shar Jackson, according to a source.))

Oh, yeah, this was the woman he left for Spears. He had two kids with Shar Jackson and left her and his children for greener fields. People seem to overlook that fact.

I’m kind of sick of these no name celebrities getting reality shows after reality shows. Has K-Fed done anything worthwhile after his first album failed? It used to be you’d pay people to help you lose weight. Now, people will pay you to help you lose weight.

What strange world we live in.

Knight Rider 2000

(The poster)
Knight Rider 2000 (Everything you ever wanted to know about the movie is in this link)

Do remember this TV movie?

NBC broadcasted this sequel to the canceled Knight Rider show on May 19, 1991. Because they filmed it in 91, they could push the continuity 2000. Because of this jump ahead, the world of Knight Rider is completely different and somewhat bleak.

From the IMDB page,

((In the future, guns are banned and criminals are frozen for the duration of their sentences. A recent spate of killings involving handguns brings Michael Knight back to fight for justice, but he insists of the help of KITT, his artificially-intelligent car from decades ago. The only problem is that KITT has been deactivated.))

I remember watching this movie and thinking how interesting this world would be if they explored it further. You see the plan was for this TV movie to serve as a pilot for a new Knight Rider series and probably called Knight Rider 2000. For reasons unknown, the show was never picked up. I mean the show clearly sets itself up for a series.

I found that this movie would reveal some new concepts to a show that never was.

-Knight 4000: I actually found this version of the car much cooler than the one from the 2008 series. Kitt's motherboard is put into the Knight 4000, and the rest is history. The only problem I can see with this new design is that the car is red. The original Knight 2000 was painted black.

I actually still like this movie, but I really loved it back in 1991.

-Shawn McCormick (Susan Norman) the new Knight Rider: The movie ends with a strong hint that McCormick was supposed to be the next driver. If the series moved forward, Ms. Norman would have been the new hero of the series. Heck, even her origins are the same.

-They kill off Devon Miles and I thought it was a sad moment. He was Michael Knight's boss in the series.

-The producers of Team Knight Rider decided to ignore this movie.

-The newer Knight Rider show completely ignores this movie too. Mainly because we didn't end up that future!

Here are a few videos

Old KITT meets new Knight 4000

This is one of the funniest and memorable scenes in the movie. James Doohan makes a funny cameo appearance.

Shreds: Making bad music even worst

Shreds: Making bad music even worst


Someone told me about this Internet trend called Shreds. I went home and checked it out. I couldn’t stop laughing at how strange and silly it is.

Basically, someone replaces the real music with strange grumbling lyrics and distorted music. The “shredding” has to fit in with the actual playing in the video.

It seems the shittier the band the better the shreds sound. Nickelback and Creed seem to fit that category.

Nickelback Shreds

AC DC Shreds

Metallica Shreds

Jake E Lee Shreds

You probably won't get through most of them, but they are entertaining.

Why So Serious? (By Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard)

Why So Serious? (By Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard)

Probably one of Zimmer's most memorable tracks from the Dark Knight is the experimental “Why so serious?”. Keep in mind, WB released this track onto the Internet early. When I first heard the opening chords, which were buzzing sounds, I wasn't sure what the hell I was listening to. “Is this a Batman score?” I thought to myself. It took me a while to get use to it.

I later discovered that the track was to be the Joker's theme song. It is an organized mess, and I mean that in a positive way. The track jumps all over the place revealing the various aspects of the Joker theme. And like the character there are many themes conflicting with each other. When you compare this complicated theme to the Dark Knight theme, a two note theme, they are different sides of the same coin. Batman's theme is very traditional while the Joker theme is experimental.

I personally like the out of tune piano. The buzzing is also pretty neat too. I have to give Zimmer credit for trying something different could they could have easily went with the clown music like in the 1989 Batman Joker theme. I'm not dissing the wonder score from Batman 89. However, this is a different take on a superhero villain theme.

Here is the “making of” the theme.

I had no idea it was a cello that created the buzzing sound. I thought it was a guitar. There is some guitar in there too, but the cello is the star.

Why so serious?

Jen Kwok: Date an Asian

Jen Kwok: Date an Asian

Going into this video, I thought it was going to be something completely different. It ended up being a total surprise what the song and video is really about.

Crank: High Voltage

Crank: High Voltage

What in the hell did I just watch? Great, the movie literally flipped me off at the end. Was the movie trying to tell people that paid to see it to f’off?

Again, Jason Statham drives fast and kills people.

Crank 2 is a louder and cartoon-er than its predecessor. In some ways, the more ‘balls to the wall’ approach to the material makes some scenes fun to watch. Mostly, the film is frantic and messy. So, you might just shrug and wonder if the movie is worth it. And it is mostly not.

I am aware this is a movie for the post-MTV and X-Box Generation crowd, but at least make the movie somewhat cohesive. It takes the basic concept of Crank 1 and turns it up to number 11. Just because it is louder and bigger doesn’t maker it better. Look no further than Transformers II.

They handled Jason Statham ‘resurrection’ very well I thought. Given this is a cartoon/videogame world, Chev Chelios’ (Statham) new life is just like the gamer pressing continue. I thought the way they brought him back and the overall story involving a certain body part was an interesting concept to drive the plot along. It is just a shame the directors could make the movie feel like a movie instead of Michael Bay-lite videogame.

Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor screwed the pooch with the story. Instead, we get loopy out of context scenes that don’t fit with the time running out storyline. Case in point, Statham and an Asian gangster morph into Godzilla like monsters and fight in slow motion. Does this further the compelling plot? Nope, but the two directors want to force it down our throats. That’s what makes Crank 2 so frustrating. Naveldine and Taylor are trapped in this music video mindset when they have a rather interesting concept on their hands. They can’t get past the boobs and breaking the rules mentality.

Statham is looking for his heart for crap’s sake. I know your audience is made up of man-children that spend all hours on X-Box live with short attention spans, but you should demand better from them.

Statham is fine playing the same character he’s been playing since the first Transporter. Hell, it is same character as his Death Race character. They even make a Transporter joke in the movie. Amy Smart is even sexier in this one.

However, who’s idea was it to bring the terrible Ling Bai into the mix? She was just horrible. It would have been better for everyone if Statham played against mop with a wig. You know, it probably was a stick with a wig on, knowing how skinny Bai is.

Here are a few things that were wasted because of the movie never bothers to follow through.

-David Carradine as a Chinese mob boss. They could have done more with this storyline. It does seem strange that the character Carradine was playing was kind of on the freaky side sexually. We all know what happened to him after this movie.

-Corey Haim: What was the point in having him in the movie? Completely wasted, and I’m not talking about his drug use either.

-John de Lancie: You have freaking Q in the movie and you kind of under-use him.

Crank 2 is a very interesting concept and idea that isn’t fully fleshed out because the directors were too busy thinking up ‘groundbreaking’ camera tricks than telling a fun action story. There are some cool videogame moments, but it doesn’t add to the overall movie, since this is a movie they were filming. It they toned down the goofy stuff, this would have been a pretty good action flick.

Grade: D+

Darth Vader gets interrupted by Kanye West

Darth Vader gets interrupted by Kanye West

The best part is Vader continues to watch, in a kneeling position, while Kanye speaks. Is Kanye the new Rick Rolled?

Hitler Finds out about Kanye’s interruption

The Turtle Man

The Turtle Man

A guy named Justin showed me this little gem. After work today, my fellow co-work mentioned the Turtle Man. I asked, “Did he look like a turtle?” He answered nope. He was a guy with no front teeth and dug into muddy waters (not the singer) searching for snapping turtles.

Basically, he jumps into ponds and lakes, shirtless, fishing for snapping turtles. Of course, he’s from KY. When he catches one, he yells out a Rebel Yell. At first, I wanted to make fun of him, but I changed my mind. For one, he’s one brave man. He swims about in dirty water and finds turtles. Second, he’s having the time of his life.

I’m not brave enough to do what he does. I used to hunt for crawdads, but not snapping turtles. These turtles are mean. I guess I would be too if a shirtless dude scooped me up while yelling out the rebel call.

I did a little digging and found out he is a blogger. ( You can watch other videos from his catches. Hell, the man even has merchandise.

Not to be confused with the other turtle man from that awful movie.

Found out more about the snapping turtle here (

Best Kanye West Interruption

Tyler Perry highest rated film to date? (Tyler Perry's I Can Do Bad All By Myself)

Tyler Perry highest rated film to date? (Tyler Perry's I Can Do Bad All By Myself)

As I listened to a podcast with a black guy, I remember him saying that many educated black men and women don’t like Tyler Perry and his movies. I’m not completely sure about that, but there is a divide. But, the rest of the black church-going population loves his movies. Hell, my mother loves his movies and she is educated. (I liked his limited part in Star Trek 2009)

For me, I find his movies very strange. Even though I’m a black guy, I always get a response, “You just don’t get it” from fans of his movies. I can’t deny that his movies are hits.

Plus, there has been a divide between reviewers and the moviegoers. Perry’s movies have always become huge hits while critics ripped his movies apart. Given that his latest movie is number one and his highest rated movie he’s ever directed, I wanted to list his ratings on the Rotten Tomato-meter.

Keep in mind all his Madea movies are set in the same universe. (Madea universe?)

Diary of a Mad Black Woman (16%): This was his first movie to come to the screen. It went on to make 50 million.

Madea's Family Reunion: (27%): The rating for this movie was certainly better. And, it made 63 million.

Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married? (44%): This movie was not set in the Madea Universe as far as I can tell. It made 55 million.

Daddy's Little Girls (25%): I know nothing about this movie. I’m not even sure it was even promoted that much. The box office take dipped for this one with 31 million.

Tyler Perry's The Family That Preys (51%): This movie received a lot of positive buzz from at least half the critics. Interestingly enough, it made 37 million.

Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns (30%): This one is loosely set in the Madea Universe and I think it sets up the next Madea movie. $41 million…

Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail (31%): This was Perry’s highest grossing film to date with 90 million.

Tyler Perry's I Can Do Bad All By Myself (59%): This is his highest rated film ever.

It will be interesting to see if his best reviewed film will appeal to the masses that liked his more poorly reviewed movies.

~I'm working on my Dannie Darko review, and getting into starting my Crank 2 review. I am not sure when I'll have either one of those done.

~Stormtroopers 9/11: Man, this is so funny. Somehow, this Star Wars spoof makes fun of everything from the design of the Death Star to the crazy 9/11 conspiracy theories. I also like that they mention that the Death Star II will be bigger and stronger.

~What is wrong with Megan Fox? She keeps attacking Michael Bay in nearly every interview she does now. Well, some behind the scenes folks from Bay's crew had some not so nice things to say about Fox. I think some of their points are a little below the belt, but it does give you some insight into her mood.

What in the hell is this?

All I have to say is Olivia Munn looks really hot in that strange Star Trek outfit. The video also involves Munn and that other guy bouncing on giant blue balls. (Make your own sexual jokes)

Lil Mama pulls a mini-Kanye West herself

Lil Mama pulls a mini-Kanye West herself


((Her intent was to root Jay-Z on, not disrupt the production, the Brooklyn native said.

"I'm sitting in my seat two rows away from the stage, and Jay-Z is walking through this tunnel and just, like, this adrenaline rush is pumping [through me],"))

Great another person I had no idea existed before the damn VMAs. Think of her crashing Jay-Z and Alicia Keys' performance as a alt-Soy Bomb. So, is it okay for any average Joe to jump on a stage and help the performance by joining their favorite singer? To me, it looked more like a dis than anything else.

The lovely Alicia Keys said it the best.

(("We can appreciate her being overwhelmed and inspired," Keys said, "but we would have appreciated it if she would have did it from her seat."))

Simple and to the point. I'm sure Alicia is just taking the diplomatic approach here.

Is there something in the water that's making people act like complete jackasses? I think it is time for MTV to invest in some archers to snipe anyone that approaches a stage unplanned.

Here's Lil Mama's wiki.

Put a shirt on damn it.

Ultimate Warrior Comic Book

Where the hell are his pants? Did Warrior ripoff Lobo in this cover?

Ultimate Warrior Comic Book

Do you remember the Ultimate Warrior from the WWF?

He was the sub-par wrestler that was supposed to replace Hulk Hogan at the time. After his rather lackluster career as a painted wrestler, he become somewhat known as a conservative joke. (He legally changed his name to Warrior.) But to be fair to “Warrior”, WWF did screw him multiple times over his career.

When he was not trying to take legal action over a website, he was making a terrible comic book series. I came across an ad for the Warrior comic book in an old August 1996 Fan magazine.

For some reason, the ad has Warrior on an alien planet (Two moons). And, he hanging from a tree attempting to save a airplane pilot from green water. He looks even more juiced than his normal self. While looking at us the reader, he says this, “Live in the system...die by the in Destrucity you will create your own rule book...” What in the hell does that even mean?

I had two thing go through my mind when I saw the ad.

1 Did the world need an Ultimate Warrior comic book? Was the world asking for one?

2 Having your own comic book was the 'Ultimate' ego trip at the time. Before famous people had their own brands of beef jerky and energy drinks, they'd make a stupid comic book instead. Could you imagine a Larry the Cable guy comic book?

Magically, only six issues were made, but only four saw the light of day.

The other thing worth noting is there was special comic book where Warrior captures, attacks and rapes Santa Claus. You read that right; The Ultimate Warrior rapes Santa Claus. What the hell did Mr. Claus do to deserve getting raped by the Warrior? What was he thinking?

After the Santa rape, did anyone want to read the Warrior comic?

More reading

Make sure to check out why the Ultimate Warrior is insane. Everything he says is true. talks about it.

OMG, even his teeth have muscles. How many muscles are even in his neck in this picture?

How many muscles does that damn “Battle Cat” have?


Yes, this was the issue where he raped Santa Claus. Notice the strange substance on Santa?
