    Rock of Ages was adapted to film from the play, IIRC. It's like someone looked at what happened with Grease and got everything wrong, from what I'm told. I've never seen the play.

    Also, School of Rock was a huge hit. Most people seem to like it.

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.

    The play is definitely an attempt to transplant Grease to 80s hair bands. I think it is gloriously successful -- it is completely self-mocking. I don't know if that was lost in the film which I didn't even know had been made.

    One of the best parts of the play was the cast were Disney types who typically have to slog around being The Handsome F-cking Prince or something. They're all hysterically over-the-top, every guy is spectacularly gay, so the love/sex scenes with the innocent-but-hot-but-good-but-naughty whatever lead girl are about as sincere as a televangelist. Also they tended to be very young silly / stupid actors, and a cruise ship aint exactly the Old Vic, so more often than not an air of deeply subversive anarchy prevailed, and a more or less delightful malice towards the fat old brood sow from Kansas in row G seat 12.

    It was fun.

    All I know is Tom Cruise is in the movie...

    And School of Rock is one of the few Jack Black films I like. I love him as a secondary character but as the star I find him awful.

    School of Rock is great fun and the wife and I watch it until the end every time if we find it while surfing. Jack Black is ok in small dosesonly and I thought he was solid in Shallow Hal.

    I enjoyed his part in High Fidelity.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    Airborne is a cinematic classic.

    Mitchell Goosen: Mitchell Goosen at your service. I'm not from around here. What to tell. Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Don't care. Just as long as I live near the beach and don't have to wear a tie. Then I'll be stylin'.

    Augie: Stylin'? St-stylin'?

    Mitchell Goosen: Let me tell you what stylin' is. The perfect session: A-Frame wave, ground swell, spittin' out salt water in your face, doing a little lip action move, a 360 without a bounce. I call it a Liquid Drano Wannabe Bullwinkle. I tell you no lie, my friends. It's a consciousness raiser.

    Three Amigos! is some channel called "Charge." Fine with me.

    Bartender: We don't have beer. Just tequila.
    Ned Nederlander: What's tequila?
    Bartender: Uh, it's like beer.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    It. Finally a movie that lives up to the hype and previews. Honestly I think Annabelle: Creation was a bit creepier and predictable overall, but It has more depth and character development and fully delivers the scare factor. Easily his best scary movie for me since perhaps Misery.

    Boston Accent:

    Sorry, meant "Gone Baby Gone." It was good, but **** if I wasn't laughing throughout the movie due to the Boston Accent spoof. Child kidnapping, twists and turns to the plot, moral dilemma, etc. Worth watching for sure.
