I seem to be on a two 'movies a day' pace this week and it would be remiss of me to not tell you what I think of what I have seen. I DID attend a couple of film studies classes once, so I knows me some films...bitches. So this movie start with the death of dickhead Greg Kinnear who is sleeping with someone other than his wife. Dr. Pinkus (the awesome Ricky Gervais) is the next character we meet and he is a depressed dentist (go figure - they kill themselves faster than Middle East suicidal bombers). The first thing I have decided after seeing this movie is that I want to live in a building with a door man who knows my name and my coming and goings and all the mysterious packages that arrive at my door. Hell, I just want to be recognized and known for something. So Dr. Pinkus goes in for a bowel procedure and discovers when he comes out that he can see and talk to ghosts. For a guy who basically hates people, having the ghosts discover that you can communicate with them is the LAST thing you want to happen to you. Soon he is being pursued by every ghost on the block and becomes involved in their afterlives. The ghosts include the selfish Greg Kinnear who needs Dr Pinkus to help his still living wife played by Tia Leone (meow). Their relationship is really sweet and proves that funny is the quickest way to a woman's heart. If that is NOT true then don't tell me. Its the only shot I got baby. I admit to tearing up a few times during this movie but I do that alot so don't let that keep you from watching this sweet, harmless little movie.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
