It's nice to see the FilmDrunk comments threads truly coming into their own. Last week we set a new high of 91 comments on the Diary of the Dead post. Sure, it may be the same 20 people commenting multiple times, but hey, they said some damned funny shit, and besides, cult popularity is better than no popularity, right? Right? Anyone?
First and foremost, let's give thanks to those who introduced new terms into the lexicon. Nominus gave us a viable replacement for "Jumped the Shark" in "Fred Dursted." As in, "Grandma's meatloaf used to be the bomb, but I think it really Fred Dursted right around the time she got Alzheimer's disease."
Meanwhile, Relapsed Drunken Mel Gibson gave us a succinct term for Uwe Boll movies: Boll movements. Spot on, Mel.
INDIANA JONES HAS A TITLE
Stone Soup says: Any chance they could have come up with a more Harry Potter sounding "and the" title? Let's play mix and match – pick one from each section:
Kingdom; goblet; bucket; shipping container; prisoner; temple; flop house; mouthful
Scariness; pain; fire; semen; blood; wisdom; phone books; rude gestures; duct tape; evil koalas
From the same post:
Bill O'Solo says: Ok, just SHOOT George Lucas right now. These are adults, well-educated adults, ok? Making movies about Crystal Skulls. Jesus H Christ, is fucking He-Man going to be in this too? He might give it a bit of depth and draw in the adults who aren't living in their parents' basements playing Dungeons and Dragons with their stuffed animals.
I might be a little bitter since I pitched Bill O'Solo and the Island of 14 Year Old Indonesian Prostitutes to Lucas and he just gave me this blank stare. "It's a porno," I told him. Then I had to tell this pinhead what sex was. And the whole time he kept playing with his Luke and Leia action figures and making little explosion noises. Then he wanted his rubby. What the fuck is that? [Ed. Note: Normally I wouldn't reward comments this long, but he won me over with 'rubby']
From: VINNIE JONES AND LEO FIGHT VIKINGS?
Charlie Bronze says: Was that the scene of the military blunder where King Olaf the Hairy ordered 50,000 battle helmets with the horns on the inside?
