Well I don't know what to say. Tyler Perry tries. He does. He tries really hard and he does really well for himself. But this makes no sense. What is going on here? Oh, wait...maybe the trailer will shed some light on this.
Well, that didn't help. What is he trying to reference here? How is his new movie like Straw dogs? Is this another remake like when Madea went to jail? Does Madea defend her home against a pack of hooligans? Is Perry a Peckenpah fan? Have you noticed how many question marks I have used in this short post? I am at a loss. I have never understood the Madea movie franchise and this poster has just pushed me further away from any sort of reconciliation. Can people please start a new meme of putting Madea in random famous movie posters? I would like to see that. I would do it but Photoshop is so expensive.
Question Marks =8

My vote for best movie title ever goes to Hot Tub Time Machine. Yep that's right, Hot Tub Time Machine. Who's in it you ask? Oh, just John Cusack, Craig Robinson, Clark Duke, Rob Corddry, Chevy Chase and Crispin Glover. It's directed by the guy who wrote the screenplays for High Fidelity and Grosse Pointe Blank and written by the guy who wrote Yes Man. I mean it has John Cusack and Clark Duke in it, which is good, but it was written by the guy who wrote Yes Man. Not so good. It has Crispin Glover in it, but it also has Crispin Glover in it. So... I have no idea what to make of this movie. This teaser trailer doesn't help in my decision either. (Warning! Foul language!)
Well, at least it has an awesome title. Hot Tub Time Machine.
As an added bonus here is the disturbing Crispin Glover music video "Clowny Clown Clown" from 1989. This was produced by the same guys who did "Fish Heads." This should be enough warning for you to not watch it. I don't want any complaints like "I can't sleep at nights anymore!" or "I showed Clowny Clown Clown to my dog and he died!" You were warned!
Genius is never understood in its time.

I haven't been around lately so I'm going to ease myself back into this blog. First thing up is this link of Weezer songs performed in video game-y 8-bit style. Nerdy? Yes. Trendy? Absolutely. Enjoyable? Without a doubt. Happiness comes in the strangest forms these days. These free songs are definitely a new happy thought for me. Hope you enjoy. If you don't...you're probably reading the wrong blog.
Here is a hilarious interview/trivia game appearance by indie rock sweetheart Neko Case,(NPR link!) for those of you that don't dig Weezer. And yes...that is also Paula Poundstone you are hearing. I'd throw my ironic t-shirt at Neko if you know what I mean(I want that printed on an ironic t-shirt).
