According to this Onion article:
I love The Onion!
One day a few months ago a actual sports writer on a radio station actually used one of their articles as a serious story!
It was hilarious! He went on and on like it was real!
He had no clue as to what The Onion was!
Thank goodness I don't own any of those movies either! *whew*
Yeah, I laughed a lot when I saw that article.
Not a single one of those movies here either (though we've rented a couple of them). I once contemplated blind-purchasing Swordfish, but thought better of it.
Ruh-oh. I've got Psycho (1998) and Evolution, and I'd pick up Hard Rain in a second if there was an SE. Heck, I've already spent $10 to see Hard Rain theatrically during a Ridley Scott retrospective. But don't sob for me too much - my girlfriend loves Evolution, too.
It's not the mediocre films my girlfriend objects to, it's the many hundreds of discs of hardcore Dutch porn.
Uhm... I have some of those movies AND I love Toad The Wet Sprocket! Should I be worried?
It's okay... my hand still loves me.
Oh-oh, I have, and have watched many times:
Rollerball (James Caan version)
My Blue Heaven
Legend Of Bagger Vance
Of course, I can't feel too bad since it's my wife that owns Flatliners
I guess that repeat love will have to factored into my DVD purchases now. I guess that Ron will have to add a will you get it twice into his reviews now.
Damin, you saw Hard Rain at a Ridley Scott retrospective? I think you mean Black Rain.
Hard Rain is an extremely mediocre action flick starring Christian Slater and Morgan Freeman. I believe it sat on the shelf for about 2 years before it was actually released theatrically.
The only one I have is Swordfish, and I make no apologies. That explosion at the beginning of the film is one of those Home Theater System defining moments!
...and then of course, theres that great shot of "the twins".
Very funny story. I forwarded this link to my fiancee, as I buy very few movies, and, to me, she seems to buy a lot of good movies and some very mediocre ones(*cough cough Chick Flicks cough Cough*). The joke about Ashley Judd thrillers hit the spot especially, as I tease her about her Ashley Judd/Morgan Freeman murder mystery collection.
That is an absolutely hysterical article from The Onion, and I'm not just saying that because I don't own any of those movies. I would find the article hilarious regardless.
Very funny stuff!
Out of that collection, I own A Knight's Tale and Evolution. I guess I'm okay.
Yikes here too. I own Pushing Tin, My Blue Heaven, and Proof Of Life, and what's more, I *like* them! C'mon, Pushing Tin has Billy Bob Thornton, John Cusack, Cate Blanchett and Angelina Jolie. No, it's not great, but I'd watch that cast reading the phone book, and the movie is much more entertaining than the phone book. Air Traffic Controllers are COOL! My Blue Heaven is a guilty pleasure, and I think it's pretty funny. Proof of Life got a lot of crap because Crowe and Ryan had that torrid affair, but the movie itself is not that bad. I'm a Russell Crowe fan, and I like his character in it.
We own over 1000 DVDs, and the good-to-great far outweighs the ok-to-good (if I do say so myself). Most of the ok-to-good came from Hollywood Video's $8.00 sales, and other such previously-viewed sales. It'd take a person a hour to look closely through our DVD shelves, so the "what was she thinking?" titles would be harder to spot and quickly dismissed by an "oh wow, what a great movie!" DVD right next to it.
I love The Onion too!
