9 times out of 10 it's one of those types that get hit by cars here after darting out from between parked ones on the narrow side streets.

Watched Windy City Heat last night and really enjoyed it.

I would like to see re-done with better actors and a more polished script.
The lead was a cross between Sam Kinison and Ron Jeremy...with less acting talent than either of them.

Shakes the Clown is on Monday's menu.

I noticed that "Shakes the Clown" is no longer there when I visited Crackle.

I started watching Shakes the Clown and... I gotta say I wasn't feeling it. I was even looking at the time left too, this was at the half hr mark. It reminds me of Death to Smoochy the only difference is they took out the funny, added a crap load of creepy or wtf and threw in some Watch the Train Wreck. I felt like I needed to be on drugs literally too. Am I missing something...?

Watched last night on Amazon Instant. I enjoyed it in all its poignancy and violence.

Just watched the DVD I got from Netflix.

Did the Batman movie theater killer see this film?

I gave it three Netflix stars, but I don't really think this film is very healthy for people to watch.

I did like the lead actor's work on 2.5 Men.

Otherwise, I am pretty much left speechless by this film. It is sort of like being punched in the face.

Saw this movie yesterday, it's definately my kind of movie tongue.gif
It has a lot of dark humor, it's tragic and are spot on in regard to the "phenomenons" in the media today and so forth.
I must say that I thought this would be one of those movies with 20-30min content and then the movie would fall apart.
But that was not the case.

A solid movie in my book.

Interesting....I would have thought this movie would be more specific to America.
Guess not, eh?wink.gif

We are probably not bombarded "as much" as you guys but it's pretty much the same crap here.
Stupid TV shows/commercials, irritating neighbours and people behaving as they are the center of the universe.

My neighbour in the appartment above went on a two week vaccation with the alarm clock going 24/7, at the time I could relate to that "dream" in the beginning smile.giftongue.gif

This was a great little film. I thought the same as Fredrik that there would be a solid 20-30 minutes and the rest would fall apart or be fluff. Lot of good back and forth comedy between Murray and the girl.

Favorite part had to be when he Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
cuffed Chloe to the wheel, lit the rag to the gas tank on fire, music cues, then looks back and realizes the rag fell out. Then just goes back and shoots her in the face.

Too funny.
