Fast and the Furious Trash Talkin’ Supercut
Even though they’re in separate cars, the characters in the Fast and the Furious series do a healthy amount of trash talking to each other, and it is all hilariously bad. Here’s the worst of the worst in one go.
I’m pretty proud of this little video I did for GQ. There’s nothing like your favorite LOTR characters laughing as someone from an alternate fantasy world gets their head chopped off.
God help me, I’m starting to make supercuts to express my feelings. Dina’s back visiting family in England for the next few weeks, and after saying I miss you in every way possible, I decided to make this video to supplement my efforts. Feel free to use it yourself if you happen to be missing someone right now, as well.
Sometimes I forget how much I love The Rules of Attraction. I watched it last night and was reminded how funny it is, especially the scene above. A heroin loaded Fred Savage, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, and the clarinet make this the funniest scene of the entire movie.
P.S. If you watch this on DVD, you’ll find that the producers randomly decided to have a commentary track with Carrot Top. I’m not a big fan of prop comedy, but listening to his reactions as he watches this movie for the first time is worth the price of admission.
The Alamo Drafthouse of Austin, TX is doing a traveling movie extravaganza with screenings of classic movies around the country. Of course, NYC gets the best of the best: The Godfather Part II presented on a roof in Little Italy. I know where I’ll be on August 27th. Above is one of the amazing posters designed for the series.

I’m watching this excellent cinematic specimen from the great year of 1981. It’s called ‘Student Bodies,’ and I’m hoping it’s a spoof of slasher movies, because it is hil-ar-ee-ous.
After hearing the following quote, I became sold on this little gem: “Well, be careful, because when you do wild and crazy things, wild and crazy things happen to you.” Speaking from experience, I can tell you that this is true…and sorta obvious.
The serial killer keeps talking to himself, saying things like, “Why do they always run? It’s the galoshes! They’re a dead giveaway. Why do I wear them? It’s not even raining.”
That’s it! I’m recording this and watching it later. I encourage you to check your local listings, the Showtime networks to be specific.
Interviewer: How has your “relationship” with movies changed over time?
Pauline Kael: In front of the screen, I’m still a kid. Movie love is abiding throughout life…we’re lovers who are let down all the time, and go on loving.
Interviewer: When I’m at the movies, I feel like I’m swept up, lost.
Pauline Kael: I feel as if I’m found.
Yep, that sums it up for me.
