Frank Langella - You Magnificent Bastard


No one chewed the scenery and gave his all to a part like Frank Langella as Skeletor in the magnificent Masters of the Universe movie. So much cool but nothing like Frank. Where is HIS Oscar? Can anyone tell me that?

Cold Blooded!

Some times you are just swimming in the lake, minding your own business and BAM! some ASSHOLE snake ruins your whole day.

Oh Harley. You So Crazy

So the drapes don't match the carpet?

Kick-Ass 2

"Dave, this isn't a comic book. Real people are going to die tonight."

I really went into this one reluctantly because of all the bad press and reviews but I found it to be a glorious romp through the superhero genre and the phenomenon of real life crimefighters like Phoenix Jones.

Kick-Ass 2 is a 2013 British-American superhero action-comedy film based on the comic book of the same name and Hit-Girl, both by Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr., and is the sequel to the 2010 film Kick-Ass, as well as the second installment of the Kick-Ass film series. The film was written and directed by Jeff Wadlow and co-produced by Matthew Vaughn, who directed the first film.

Everything in this second take on the characters is ramped up to 11, and then some. Chloë Grace Moretz as Hit Girl is another brilliant revelation. She moves like liquid murder and totally commits to the part. You expect that. But what is refreshing is that Moretz's Mindy is also a teen girl with all kind's of issues about being accepted by her peer group. Hit Girl is at her heart just going through changes and doubts about her identity while she beating the snot out of thugs and goons.

I can't get enough of this story. This movie hit me in my sweetest of sweet spots. I guess that says more about me than I want to know.

I am happy that the over-the-top violence and gore from the original comic book series is transferred intact to the movie. This is definitely R-Rated but delivers what it promises. I won't share explanation of the most extreme examples of pushing the envelope in this movie because it will ruin the surprises.

The action comes at you fast and furious and their are some really impressive and exciting action sequences. I left the theatre with a smile on my face. But that's just me. This one was savaged by the critics on Rotten Tomatoes with only 28 % of reviewers saying they like it as opposed to 71% of movie goers who liked it. When there is such a disparity between the critics and the public you know this is one you just might want to see.

Sour Toe Cocktail

In Dawson City more than 65,000 have consumed a cocktail with a human toe in it.

Dawson City, Yukon Territory- This is one event that you'll never forget. Dawson does indeed have a famous drink called the Sour Toe Cocktail, which contains an actual alcohol-preserved human toe. No kidding. Head to the Sourdough Saloon at the Downtown Hotel and you can watch this strange ritual, or for $5 you can try the cocktail yourself and earm a certificate. This started in 1973 with what is said to be the toe of a miner, which had been amputated in the 1920's. To participate and earn the official certificate, the rule is 'You can drink it fast, you can drink it slow—But the lips have gotta touch the toe.'

This has been a tradition for the past 40 years in the Yukon. But now the tradition has taken a twist after an American tourist actually swallowed the toe! Yes, that, right. Someone is digesting a piece of human jerky and will eventually crap out the toe. Isn't that cannibalism?

Now that is only half of the story. It just so happened that the night this all happened, my very own Mother, my Aunt, my cousin and her husband had just drank the cocktail when the American guy came into the bar and swallowed the toe. She actually WITNESSED it! That is insane. Who else but my mother could watch some yahoo swallow a mummified toe? Now the bar has to get another pickled toe and surprisingly those things are not something you can just buy at the nearest 7-11.
