Boxer continues tormenting her dogs and has apparently started hanging around dumpsters (weird, huh). But it's the Milk River Madman that continues to take up the mantle that is Movie Clip Wednesday, the Meme where everyone picks a clip from their favorite movies based on a weekly theme and tries to keep the clip or clips to around 3 minutes long. This week's theme is MOST OVERRATED MOVIE. This was actually easy for me to pick because I've discussed this at length with friends (not on this blog) that I never understood the appeal of this movie.
I will back-track a second and say that my very first thought on this theme was Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey. I like Kubrick. Full Metal Jacket is one of my favorites. But this...the monolith, HAL, monkeys, something wonderful, blah, blah, blah. I didn't get it and could never sit through the whole thing. It was SO BORING. But this wasn't the movie I picked.
The movie I picked is 1983's Scarface. As of this writing, this is IMDB's #157 most popular movie. And if you ask any gangsta rapper (and we all know a few, right?) they'll tell you it's their all-time favorite movie. Al Pacino, Frank Logia and F. Murray Abraham as Cuban/Central American drug lords - Really? The accents are horrible and the dialogue atrocious. Oliver Stone wrote this thing and Brian DePalma directed it. The only redeeming scene in this movie is - the shower scene (and I'm not talking about Dressed to Kill either - also Brian DePalma). So here you go:
So this is another theme that will not be real pleasant to watch, but go see what else is going on at the Madman's anyway.
