THE HAPPENIS !#!$!#!@!!!!


Admittedly, I've never seen The Sixth Sense. The only reason is that the ending was spoiled for me before I got the chance, so I just felt like I wouldn't get that same jaw-dropping surprise at the end as (unspoiled) first time viewers would. However, having seen bits and pieces of it, I respected the material, and the director for that matter. With Unbreakable and Signs, under M. Night's belt, it seemed what we had here was a gifted storyteller; capable of creating an atmosphere and suspense. He followed those up with The Village, which generally received a mix reaction, but for the most part I enjoyed it. Even though there were issues with the way he cut it, I thought he still managed to craft an interesting story. Then came Lady in the Water. Something had gone awry here. I have no doubt that if he were to remove all that self-referential bullshit, that it would have been alright. This was more of a rant than a movie. But you know, at least it had good acting by Paul Giamatti.

That brings us to The HapPenis. Boy... let me tell you about this movie. There are few times... FEW, when a group of friends see a movie, and there is a unanimous feeling towards it. Not everyone will like everything that everyone else does, that just the fact of life; you can't please every single person. I went to see this movie with 7 friends, and it was unanimous... this movie sucked!!! The story? Shitty. The acting? Shitty. The dialogue? Shitty! Those are the only words that can be used to describe this. It's so far removed from his other works that it's hard to believe that this was made by the same director/writer/shit-disturber. MNS has surely fallen from greatness, and it must hurt.

The only thing that saved this movie was totally unrelated to the actual movie! With about 15 minutes left of the movie, the projector had an error and shut off. The manager walked in and promised the audience refunds. How great is this? This, my friends, is proof that there is a God. He knew we were suffering, He came down and saved us from this movie. How I love Thee.

So save yourself some time. Do not go watch The HapPenis. There is one small ray of hope though. When you hit rock bottom, there's nowhere to go but up... that is unless MNS likes it down there, but let's hope not.

R.I.P. Evan Tanner

The body of the professional fighter and former UFC champion, Evan Tanner, 37, was found in the Palo Verde mountain area of California on September 8th, 2008. He was found a few miles away from his campsite on foot, with no water, where the temperatures were around 110 degrees fahrenheit. The coroner's report listed the cause of death as from heat exposure.

Tanner left Oceanside, California on September 2nd. On September 4th, he sent a text message to a friend telling him that his motorcycle was out of gas, that he was out of water, and if his friend didn't hear from him the next day, to call the authorities. Unfortunately, Evan never returned home.

I'm not the hugest MMA fan, I consider myself a casual fan, and a n00b at best. I was listening to Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer Radio, and the story of Tanner's life sounded intriguing.

As fantastic as it sounds, Tanner ventured into the deserts in search of treasure and adventure. I kid you …

Star Wars: The Force Awakens!!!!!!!!!!

(Warning: Spoilers Ahead)
Star Wars!!!!  After a 10 year gap we finally receive a new entry into the now Disney owned Star Wars franchise!  So it is apt that the new entry is called the Force Awakens.
The movie starts off 30 years from where the Return of the Jedi last left us.  The Empire has fallen and the Rebels have seemingly disbanded.  But from the ashes of the past, a new threat has risen.  Out of the fallen Empire, a new army called the First Order has spawned, threatening to finish off what the Empire set out to do –  eliminate the force by terminating the last known Jedi, Luke Skywalker.  But as the Empire has evolved so have the Rebels.  Led by General Leia Organa, the Resistance (or the new Rebels) aims to find Luke first, to stop the First Order.
We are told this story through two new main characters.  Rey, who is a scavenger on the planet Jakku, who harvests scrap metals to earn a meal.  Finn, a turncoat stormtrooper who realizes his purpose could be something more than j…

DTV Madness: Joy Ride or Sleepaway Camp? How bout neither!

I've got a crapload of DTV reviews coming out within the next week or so. I don't know why, maybe because it's near Halloween, that companies shit out all these movies around this time. So I watched two this week, Joy Ride 2: Dead Ahead and Return to Sleepaway Camp. I had hopes (not high hopes) for both, as I enjoyed the first Joy Ride and loved, loved, LOVED, the original Sleepaway Camp, but like with most DTV affairs, I was quite let down.

Return to Sleepaway Camp

The first Sleepaway Camp was created obviously to milk off the success of other slasher flicks at the time, notably Friday the 13th. It was a complete low-rent production, complete with bad acting and bad dialogue. The saving grace in the movie came at the ending. Anyone who's seen this movie could not possibly forget the ending, it's one of those things you just can't unsee. However, if you need a reminder or a spoiler...
