R2D2.... 2.

Tonight on Random Ramblings of a Demented Doorknob...

- I noticed a while back something interesting that I hadn't heard anybody else ever mention. In 1995, Bruce Willis made a movie entitled Twelve Monkeys in which he played a man named James Cole. In this movie, at one point, he utters the line "All I see are dead people." Four years later, he stars in a movie entitled The Sixth Sense, in which a boy named Cole Sear tells him "I see dead people." Both movies have a character with the name Cole give off that line, both movies have Bruce Willis, and SIX is just half of TWELVE. Coincidence... or conspiracy (dun dun dun!)?

- Was this newest Rambo movie really necessary? And how cliche was Drowning Pool's 'Bodies' in the trailer?

- Reading the imdb forums (which is always a regrettable experience) for the movie Waiting..., I stumbled across a topic that had somebody asking to name any career more difficult than being a waiter. Somebody took the words out of my mouth and said 'Teacher'. Then somebody replied to them with something along the lines of 'HAHAHAHAHAHA! TEACHER?! They just read answers from a book! That's no more difficult than having Alex Trebeck's job!' I'm not an easily angering person, but I wanted to smash that guy's face in. That's all I really have to say about that.

- As I'm currently reading World War Z by Max Brooks (as well as 50 other million books), I constantly wonder how exactly they're gonna make this into a movie (because they're already in the process of doing so). No matter what happens, it's gonna be interesting... and I can't wait to see the results.

- I still have no idea how Chuck and Larry tied with Norbit and was worse than Captivity, Daddy Day Camp, and Bratz for the Razzies. Seriously, it's not the most amazing movie ever, but I still thought it was funny and entertaining.

- If none of you have already, y'all definitely need to check out Movies in Fifteen Minutes, more specifically the 2 Harry Potters and the Golden Compass. This girl is a genius. I laugh so hard every time I read from her (I first read Prisoner of Azkaban in 15 Minutes forever ago, but recently read it again, and still laughed my ass off). I think she's even just gotten a book deal, too. Anyway, here you go: http://community.livejournal.com/m15m/

- Am I the only person to have already figured out the killer for the upcoming Untraceable? Unless it's just there to throw people off, how can you NOT figure it out from the movie trailer? Seriously... just listen closely. You can recognize the killer's voice toward the end of the trailer very easily.

- Would anybody else but me willingly sell a body part to help pay and/or try to talk Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg into doing the quasi-sequel of Shaun of the Dead... From Dusk Til Shaun? I know they said they won't, but it's just too perfect to pass up! Seriously! From zombies to vampires... and the title fits so well... Just do it already!

Anywho, I think that's about all I have for tonight... tune in next time!

  1. I think I read about the Cole/"dead people" thing on IMDb awhile back. Probably just a funky coincidence. It's not really the same thing (as it was intentional), but Bruce uses the line from a song from Pulp Fiction in Die Hard With A Vengeance ("smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo..."). Always fun to hear it nonetheless.
