The above pic is a Batmobile some dude built in his garage from scratch. Wonder if it’s street-legal?
The 08-09 NBA schedule is out, and it looks like the Cavaliers will open at Boston to kick off the NBA season.
We’d say Lebron may get inspired by the raising of the banner, but the new Kevin Smith movie opens that Friday, and we’re pretty sure he’ll be focused on either that or trick-or-treating.
Getting our look at the schedule in at NBA DOT COM, we can only wish one thing. Wait – first, take a look at how the NBA announced the release of the schedule on their main page:
The NBA released the 2008-09 schedule on Wednesday. Greg Oden’s anticipated NBA debut on opening night against the Lakers is one of Ten to Watch in 2008-09.
It read weird to us, because like it said that on the NBA’s own page, like the NBA was someone else. Wouldn’t it be better like this?
I released my 2008-09 schedule on Wednesday. Greg Oden’s anticipated debut inside of me is on opening night against the Lakers, and is one of Ten to Watch in 2008-09.
Why not make the NBA a sentient being?
We know this can’t happen for real for another 5-10 years, but they could at least pretend, right? That way, like when someone gets suspended, the press releases can all, “Ron Artest has angered me again. I hereby ban him from being inside me for 10 of my games in which the Rockets play. Don’t forget, I am on TNT tonight at 8:00.”
This would be better.
Here are today’s movie list(s) additions, including one brand new release, and a couple requests from the comments lasterday:
Pineapple Express, American Beauty, Bring It On, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Popeye, Good Morning Vietnam, Dead Poets Society, Hook, Mrs. Doubtfire, Jumanji, The Birdcage, AI, Insomnia, Night At the Museum, The Cable Guy, Zoolander, There’s Something About Mary, Mystery Men, Meet the Parents, Starsky & Hutch, Dodgeball, The Royal Tenenbaums, Rushmore, Bottle Rocket (1996), Clerks, Mallrats, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
Lots of comedy on here – being that we think ourself humorous in our own right, we think we’re gonna have to explain ourself. we’ll try to be brief and to the point as best we can.
Pineapple Express – this was good, and well worth seeing, although like most of this new-wave Judd Apatow produced stuff, it’s too long. You can tell they ad-libbed a ton of stuff and just didn’t want to let it go. They needed to – it slowed things down. 15 minutes shorter, and this is a great movie.
Kevin Smith – we don’t like toilet humor, as you know. He has a lot of funny/clever stuff (especially in Jay & silent Bob Strike Back), but it gets weighed down by all the crap. Overall, for this reason we don’t like his movies.
Wes Anderson – pretentious and unwatchable. As you can see, Rushmore is at #288 out of 308, right beneath Angels in the Outfield.
Ben Stiller – we love Ben Stiller when he plays against type, even if the movies themselves aren’t technically that good – Zoolander and Dodgeball are great examples of this. (We can’t wait to see Tropic Thunder.) When he misses, he misses hard, though – The Cable Guy and Mystery Men, we’re looking at you two.
We also Stiller as the lovable sap when the material is good, ie There’s Something About Mary. Then there’s like Night At the Museum, which we just like because it’s just a nice movie. It’s nice – everything is okay with the world after you watch it, despite the death of a caveman.
Overall, we jut want his career – he can write, direct, produce, act, or do nothing at all, depending on how he feels at any given time. He alos has the freedom to retire and go work at Home Depot if he really wanted. That too, is nice.
By the way, if you have a protest to any given movie’s rank, please let us know in the comments, and we’ll be happy to justify the placement.
