NSFW: 100 Movie Lines of Various Types

Stumbled across these videos rounding up the top 100 cliché movie lines, the top 100 movie insults (twice!), and the top 100 movie threats of all time. Very funny, but also very NSFW for language so watchers beware!

Does This Thing Go Past 11?

Right, so do we all remember how excited we were about The Expendables when we first saw that Sly, Arnie, Willis, Li, et al. were going to be in a movie together?

Now add Chuck Norris and JCVD (and probably more Arnie and Willis).

Take a moment to let that sink in.

Now watch the trailer:

Probably One Of The Strangest Mashups You Will Ever Hear

And yet somehow it is totally fitting in a way that makes you ask, HOW HAS NO ONE THOUGHT OF THIS BEFORE??!

Ahem.

Yeah, We Live There

Kick back, hit the HD, mute the sound (audio is a little grating, but hey, nothing is perfect) and replace it with your favourite aethereal tunes, and go full screen. This is why we developed space travel.

Trailer Frenzy: The Avengers

So here is how my day has gone so far:

I saw this,



And then I went like this,


RDJ's snarky Tony Stark paired up with Whedonisms galore? Forget the action, I'd watch the movie just for that!

So Bad It's (Almost) Good

Right. So I saw Abducted last night.

Poke my eyeballs out with a hot skewer.

I'll be honest, the movie did kind of drift into so-bad-it's-good territory, but still. The entire audience was pretty much in stitches for all of gooey romantic scenes, not to mention the (surprisingly) few scenes that featured Taylor Lautner shirtless for whatever reason. And Sigourney Weaver! I don't think I've ever seen her directed so badly.

*Spoiler* My favourite plot hole in the movie has to do with the fact that, contrary to the title of the film, no one is actually abducted. Seriously!

Oddly enough, Taylor Lautner's acting isn't one of the problems I had with the film, though I'm not sure if that isn't due to low expectations. No, the thing that killed this movie was an awful script and some very ham-fisted directing.

On the whole, probably the worst movie I've seen all year.
