God Bless America (and killing too, very very much)

Firstly I’d like to thank the owner for letting me be a part of this.

CYANLIANAS you are awesome.

onto more important matters.

Awesome new movie that’s hardly got any press. Have you ever wanted to see a middle-aged suicidal man become bestest best friends with a 13 year-old girl and then go on a cross country killing spree, like together, as a team? HAVE I GOT A MOVIE FOR YOU!

See the thing is

I WANT TO KILL PEOPLE

I WANT TO SMASH THEIR HEADS AND WATCH THEM BLEED

And, watching people kill other people on the screen makes me happy. Jhonen C. Vasquez wrote a lot of super anyltical smart guy crap that i don’t really neccessarily agree with in introductions to some of his releases of Johnny the Homicidal Maniac. But who cares about all that crap. Let’s talk muvee!

Joel Murray and Tara Lynne Barr

Starring Joel Murray(the crazy dad with the clowns that calls his daughter a whore and kills himself in Shameless US) and Tara Lynne Barr(It’s okay if you want to have sex with her she’s eighteent folks)

From the press package:

Frank (Joel Murray) has had enough of the downward spiral of American

culture. Divorced, recently fired, and possibly terminally ill, Frank truly has nothing left
to live for. But instead of taking his own life, he buys a gun and decides to take out his
frustration on the cruelest, stupidest, most intolerant people he can imagine — starting
with some particularly odious reality television stars.

Frank finds an unusual accomplice in a high-school student named Roxy (Tara Lynne
Barr), who shares his sense of rage and disenfranchisement. Together they embark on a
nationwide assault on our country’s most irritating celebrities . . .

Written and Directed by taboo-busting filmmaker and comedian Bobcat Goldthwait
(Shakes the Clown, Sleeping Dogs Lie, World’s Greatest Dad), GOD BLESS
AMERICA is a truly dark and very funny comedy for anyone who’s had enough of the
dumbing down of our society.

Bobcat Goldthwait,

Bobcat Goldthwait,

Written and directed by Bobcat Goldthwait who i rly only think of as Mr. Floppy from Unhappily Ever After.  Apparently him and Jimmy Kimmel have some sort of semi scret homoerotic relationship going on.  Dude hasn’t worked without him for like at least a decade.  And, when did he get a haircut?  His voice still sounds distinctively like shit though so i guess there is that.

So, it has two of the elements of a great film; there is violence and fire.  But, not nearly enough sex.  Although there is sexual tension.  Two out of three!!

  1. Welcome aboard, Taco! (BTW, anyone LOVE FX’s the League? There’s a character named Taco that I am strangely attracted to.) Anywho, I “acquired” this movie over the weekend and fully intend to watch it this week…I also have backlogged episodes of Torchwood, Falling Skies and Girls to get to as well. And all this time, I thought I was bored. JTHM was MUST-READ material for me in High School. Jhonen Vasquez was introduced to me by a cosmic freak of nature named Karen in art class junior year and we shared a conspiratorial love affair with these books. They changed my artistic perspective on visual storytelling and taught me a thing or two about conveying a certain off-key mood across several story arcs without layering on melodrama. Great reference.
