The man in slush-dirtied Kenneth Cole knock-offs trudged through the industrial park. The Cup O’ Noodles clutched in his angry, defeated, ashamed, rueful hand followed. Or something to that Stephen King’s The Gunslinger series effect.

This Is What I Get For Going To See ‘Transformers: Age Of Extinction’

July 1, 2014

Here’s a personal truth – I like big, stupid, ridiculous, blockbuster action flicks. If your movie has intensive CGI, theater-shaking explosions, martial arts, motorcycle chases, evil women who kill, spaceships, robots, natural disasters, spandexed people with mutant abilities, rocket launchers fired backwards for laughs, or anything that requires sheepish actors to act against a green screen and opposite an “X” made out of tape, there’s a distinct possibility I’m in your theater. This brings us to the Transformers franchise. These are some stupid movies. But they’re BIG, EXPENSIVE, VISUALLY THRILLING stupid movies and the robots transforming from vehicles (and now dinosaurs!) into robots is so thrilling. The fifth grader in me wants all the toys, and wants to be riding in Bumblebee when the Deceptacons attack and Bumblebee has to quick change to a robot and I go flying through the air and over a bridge and HE CATCHES ME and sparks and crashes and he turns back into a car and I’m safe! The CGI that James Cameron-lite director Michael Bay provides is top notch, and I can honestly say that the Transformers flick prior to this weekend’s Transformers: Age of Extinction had some of the loveliest and movie-experience enhancing 3D I’ve ever experienced. So, yeah, dumb movies.

Lindsay Lohan Was Secretly Telling The Judge To Eff Off In Court Yesterday

July 7, 2010

Wow. Smart. Judges love being told off via nail salon.

Except her extreme subtlety didn’t fly (*eye-roll*) because someone got a pic of it.

CNN reports (which I assume means this isn’t a Photoshop job by someone I would gladly befriend and buy a pint for) that Lindsay Lohan had “FUCK YOU” emblazoned on what Stephen King refers to in one of his novels as “yer fuckfinger” in court yesterday. Check the above picture.

So basically, despite that “I really respect you in the morning despite not even leaving money on the nightstand when I flew off to Cannes” speech to the judge yesterday, she thought she was being slick and throwing shade at Super Judge Marsha. I would have been hurling gavels at this disrespect!

Someone please forward this post and/or the CNN link to Judge Marsha Revel, c/o the LA court system. Contempt of court!

Well, at least Lindsay won’t have to say much when she meets her new girlfriend in jail. She can just flash that digit and they can get to pokin’.

P.S. Thanks, Greg.
