Ehh. I feel to drained mentally (a.k.a. STUPID) right now to write an article, so I'll just recommend a couple of flics for ya to rent from your local video store. I'll even suggest within the theme of stupidity.

Flic Number 1 is SLING BLADE. Billy Bob Thornton's feature debut as Writer/Director/Actor; a fantastic film that is more than just a movie about a retard who likes the way a little boy talks. I didn't want to see it, but decided to rent the laserdisc one day to check it out for the hell of it. Thornton made a great little film that's a lot funnier than advertised. Rent it, I don't think you'll regret it. Oh, and how Dwight Yokam didn't get nomminated for an Oscar is beyond me. Every single line he utters for his first few scenes are soooooooooooo goddamn funny!!!!!!

Flic Number 2 is BASEketball. BASEketball is the dumbest movie of last year, but also one of the funniest. It surpasses THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY as far as I'm concerned. The plot is stupid, the jokes are stupid, most of the cast is stupid, everything is stupid. But it's a very, very good thing. Matt Stone and Trey Parker (the creators of South Park) star in the flic about a couple of guys who create a new sport that incorporates baseball, basketball and insults. It's a fun silly movie that most should like, unless you're offended by crude humour.

See you at the video shelves. Hehehe!!! Don't you hate it when people say things like that?

Oh, and by the way. Don't bother going to see THE MATRIX unless you're really hard pressed for something to do. It's not without merits, it's just that there aren't any beyond its action sequences (and there's a lot of the other stuff).
