Weekend at the Movies

I'm sure that most of you remember the Deal or No Deal post from some time ago. I hypothetically asked the question if there was a list somewhere of worst talk shows of all time. Sure enough, I stumbled across this article a few weeks ago. If you can think of it, it probably exists on the internet somewhere. The article is titled Talk Show Disasters, and here is how they broke it down:
  • The Queen Latifah Show
  • The Tony Danza Show
  • The Marsha Warfield Show (forgot about that one, wow)
  • The Caroline Rhea Show
  • The Chevy Chase Show
  • George and Alana
  • The Pat Sajak Show
  • The Magic Hour (!)
  • The Roseanne Show
  • The Tempest Bledsoe Show

No Howie?? I demand a recount!! The article has pictures and fun facts if you want a little more info on why exactly they picked these.

I also found quite a few lists of worst movie sequels ever. Sadly, Road House 2 didn't make any. Most likely this is because it is too new. Saying Alive is the top of This List from Entertainment Weekly. Caddyshack 2 had a strong finish at #2. The rumor is that they are making a Usual Suspects 2, which seems pretty unnecessary to me. I mean, seriously, the first movie is one of my favorite movies ever. What are they going to doing for a sequel? Have Verbal Kint pop up in some new town where they don't know him and play the same con? I don't get it. But, it goes to prove that if Hollywood thinks they can make a dime selling moviegoers a crappy product, they'll do it.

I'm pretty pumped for this weekend. The Departed is playing at the post theater tonight, so we are going to check that out. Since it is opening night, we'll have to get there early to get a seat. I've been waiting for this one since I saw the trailer while I was on leave. Sadly, The Grudge 2 has already passed it at the Box Office, which proves the point that a good movie isn't a requirement for a good showing at the box office. AFN picked up the NU vs Texass game for Saturday night. The PX had some t-bones, so we are going to take it up a notch and do some steaks before the game. The nice thing is the game is 7:00pm our time, so we don't even have to get up in the middle of the night. Should be fun. Go Big Red!

Hey Sack..

I've been reading your blog for a while, and am now compelled to comment...


In my opinion one of the worst movies EVER, and easily the worst sequel ever. Ever. I suggest renting it when you can, just to be disgusted.

Down with the 'Horns.

The games supposed to be close but we will prevail!

BTW, glad that y'all are able to watch it at a normal hour over there! I hope y'all have a great time cooking out and watching the game. I'll be watching over here in Texas.

I didn't know someone made Road House 2. The original wasn't exactly Casablanca, but it is one of those movies that you can watch over and over, like Goldie Hawn's Overboard. If someone was going to make a sequel, they should have at least thrown Swaze a bone and given him a few minutes in a flashback scene. He needs the work, to pay for his latest round of plastic surgery.
