Random Thoughts for Tuesday, June 21st 2011

/begin random thoughts

They always say you should never do anything you don’t want said aloud at your eulogy.  They also say you should never put anything in your ear bigger than your elbow.

* * *

I often wonder if actors in really bad movies know, while they’re making the movie, that it’s a really bad movie.  But then I see random interviews with actors and hear the things they say, and I know that they don’t.  They really, really don’t.

* * *

Transformers 3: We promise it doesn’t suck!

* * *

Have you ever had one of those jobs where you think to yourself, “You know – I hate this job, I don’t like what I’m doing, but damn – the money is good!”  Yeah, that’s Michael Bay.

* * *

I think John Woo and J.J. Abrahms should make a movie together.  Imagine it!  A two-hour long, slow motion lens flare…

* * *

“I went and saw the new Abrahms/Woo flick last night.”

“Get the fuck out!  Was it awesome?”


“I hear they’re already working on a sequel.”

“I don’t know how they can top this one.”

“Dude. -3-D-.”

“Oh my god.”

* * *

“So did you hear the news?”

“What now?”

“Vin Diesel has been cast as the voice in the new Abrahams/Woo Slow-Mo-Lens-Flare-3D movie!”

“NO FUCKING WAY I LOVE (young, unsucky) VIN DIESEL!”

* * *

If a cat cries in the dark because there’s no moth to play with, and no one is there to hear his pitiful whine, will he come up the stairs and wake you up at 4 am to whine about it?


* * *

I saw a business near my house – European Wax Center.  I thought, “oh, hey – that’s- wait, I don’t see a garage or a car wash… Huh.  OH!  Yeah, um – wow.  Not -that- kind of wax.  Got it.  Okay.  A lot of pain radiating from that place… yep…  Yikes.”

* * *

I don’t know what’s worse – being woken up by by rain coming in through the window and splattering your face at 3 am, or a whining cat at 4 am.  Either way, Sleep – yeah…

    Always the cat. Always blame the cat.

    I must watch Star Trek again. Lens flare be damned.

    And after the Hague is through rounding up war criminals, perhaps they can finally focus on Michael Bay.

    So *have* you seen Green Lantern yet?

    • Patrick Hester Posted June 21, 2011 1:04 pm

      I have! I liked it.

      A bit slow in the middle, but it captured the essence well enough. It wasn’t Dark Knight, but nor was it Daredevil…

    I’m more of a Marvel guy than DC but I was more than reasonably entertained. I was surprised it took so long in the beginning to actually show a human character. Bold move.
