Netflix List/Movie Review Update

Here are our thoughts on the latest bunch of movies we got from Netflix:

The American President, 1995
This is a relic of a bygone era. A movie like this would never be made today, so it was kind of depressing. Annette Bening's head is too big. A smart president?

Advertising Rules!, 2001
This movie Rules! Crazy German movie about a skinny bird-man who gets an advertising job and a girlfriend in the same week and then craziness ensues. Other than the girl being cute and the guy being funny-looking, it was pretty good.

Predator: Collector's Edition, 1987
What the fuck kind of collector would want this shit? There were only two good parts: when Jesse Ventura said "I ain't got time to bleed", and when it was over (which took much too long to arrive).

Drumline, 2002
Should have been called "Dumbline". Could have been good, but wasn't. Bands good. Plot dumb.

Tumbleweeds, 1999
This movie seemed really good since we watched it the night after we watched "Big Fish", which should have been called "Big Piece of Shit". Tumbleweeds had more character development in the first 10 minutes than Big Piece of Shit had in the whole 8 hours or however long that crap was.

What are you going to do if Bush wins or when he loses? With just a little over a month left before the election, it's critical that we stay motivated. To that end, we've created an area in the Motel Forums where you can post your resolutions for after the election.

Keep it positive. Your first instinct may be to say "If Bush wins, I gouge out my eyes", but what good does that do, really? The goal is to try to have a better world after the election either way. If it goes one way, this will be much more difficult. But, why not commit to doing something painful that will make a positive difference, rather than something painful that won't matter much to anyone but yourself (not that we wouldn't care if you gouged out your eyes, but really...we'll have bigger problems like the "special skills draft" to worry about (if you don't know about the special skills draft, please click that link).

Go to the Forums and post your resolutions now!

Thanks to our totally fun president, the Assault Weapon Ban has expired! Yeehaw. What's this mean for you? Faster Killing is now back in the hands of everyone! Those 10 years without being able to get myself an AK-47 were a drag!

Here's some links to the lastest shopping info:

Oh, crap.

We watched Big Fish last night, and all I have to say is "huh?" It was OK, but not this fantastic tour-de-force whatever that people claimed it was back when it came out earlier this year. First of all, my dislike of Ewan McGregor seems to be solidifying into an impetrable fortress of hate. Those big white teeth! His big head! His mole-covered face! It's so disgusting. And I don't really think he's that great of an actor. I never believe him in his roles -- he's always big, moley-headed Ewan.

Anyway, regardless of that, the whole thing was just dumb. The son was one-dimensional, the father was one-dimensional, and the women were without any dimensions at all, like points on a plane. Why was Ewan in love with Alison Lohman? I have no idea; they never even had a conversation.

I think people liked this movie because it had lots of colors. It was a very pretty picture, I guess, especially if you can like Siamese twins, carnivals, and giants, which I don't. In fact, this is the second movie I've seen lately with Siamese twins (the other was The City of Lost Children), and, frankly, that was two too many. Siamese twins really gross me out. I think movies featuring Siamese twins should come with a warning label so people like me can avoid them. It could be a cool little icon, like a set of shoulders with two heads or something.
