I failed the Gerry challenge miserably, 15 minutes in I think. The Apocalypse Now-Gerry fusion raises my curiosity a great deal though.

Only about an hour long. It's a documentary about the Australian attempts to control the beetle population by importing cane toads from Hawaii then trying to control the toad population when it blew up to over 200 million. When kids discover that you can get high by licking the toads hilarity ensues. The funniest parts are the crazy guy who drives around running over toads and the little girl on the cover who adopted one as her pet.

For some reason when I look at that movie poster I think of The Gods Must be Crazy.

I have no idea why. :-S

Is this like the Gerry challenge?


Not a challenge. I actually completely enjoyed this movie. I saw it many years ago of all places at the Royal Ontario Museum. The Australian embassy hosted an invitation only Australian cultural exposition there. My roommate was dating an Aussie guy (my roomie was a chick) who brought us. There was free food and booze and for some reason Dame Edna was there :-? . Chairs were set up in the middle of the museum and s/he introduced this movie. Everybody there killed themselves laughing, half of them were Aussies laughing at themselves. A great time was had by all. We were students and got free food, got pretty loaded and got a free movie. I'm not a fan but that Dame Edna guy was a riot too.

Saw IV - 6/10 - ok I'm a horror flick junkie. I don't know why but I feel as if I have to watch these horrible films. I loved the first two but the last three have been lacking in story. It's more gore than story now. I was slightly intrigued by the storyline but overall, it simply wasn't that good. I'd definitely check it out if you are a fan but expect it to be... meh.

Saturday Night Fever - 7/10 : One of those classics you just have to see I guess.

The Incredible Hulk (2008) - 6/10 : The fact that it was BluRay could swing some points, but it was alright. Tough to find a movie I wouldn't like.

;-D


Funniest scene (from memory):

One of the main character's friends gets "sloppy seconds" in the back of the car, and yells to his friend "Why is she crying?" or something like that. Hilarious.

Haunting In Connecticut - 5.5/10

Typical scary haunted house movie. I actually just watched The Amityville Horror and I found the two movies were very much alike.
