I figure I may as well keep the number system for the blogs. We all cool with that? Good. At the end of every blog, I will post how many bare breasted women as well as ladies in say a bra, because that has to count for something. All of this is to help a great cause. With that said, I’m ready to put myself through 31 days and 100 movies, and a few video games, all for the sake of getting 5 hits a day! Woohoo, low expectations!!! Exclamation Points!!!!!!!!
I have just opened my first new box of Count Chocula of the year. Let’s face it, it’s not official for me until I taste the absolute deliciousness known as the black version of Lucky Charms.
I should tell you that there is a very good reason why I chose The Sixth Sense as the first movie to kick things off this year. Some of my closer friends may know that i consider this movie to be the most overrated horror film of all time. I have hammered this movie so bad that my best friend Chris refuses to see it. This was a movie strictly based around a plot twist, a lousy plot twist. I saw this in the movie theater, and I remember walking out being the only group of people that wasn’t wowed by this nonsense. It was a terribly predictable tweeest as M Night would say. I haven’t seen this movie since that night. Well ladies and gentleman, let’s see how this movie holds up 15 years later. Welcome back, I appreciate you taking your time to view this blog of mine.
In case you don’t know the twist, just stop reading. Well you can read, I’m gonna spoil it for you and save you almost 2 hours of your life….you’re welcome.
The kid sees dead people. This had been made clear in every trailed I ever saw. So guess what the twist is? He sees dead people. WHAT? Don’t give away your twist in the F’N trailer. I seriously sat there waiting for some twist while in the theater, and then I realized that people suddenly had this “aha” moment, and I asked my buddy if that was the twist. He said, no, there’s gotta be something more, they advertised that. Yeah.
Let me ask you something. Did the trailer for the Usual Suspects give away the twist in their trailer? Did the trailer for Fight Club give away the twist in their previews? NO, the answer is no. Nobody in their right mind would do this. Why were people surprised in the theater? I have spent 15 years wondering this, and I am still baffled. It is currently #162 all time on IMDB. What the hell am I missing? The movie itself is ok, it doesn’t do anything bad, but the hype, of the hype, and the people that slurped it up. I get why Halloween was and is still relevant today, despite it being a little meh to me. Oh, the kid just said that he sees dead people. This scene is actually decent and creepy, but it didn’t belong in the trailer. Sadly, apparently the vast majority of the audience didn’t quite get the point of the scene entirely. I admit, I am oblivious to a lot of twists in movies, so that’s why this was all the more appalling to me. The scene in the classroom with the kid calling his teacher Stuttering Stanley was also solid.
I still have over an hour to go.This is only going to get worse because I have Unbreakable, Signs, The Village, the Happening, and Devil all coming up. I like 2.5 of those movies. I’m so sick of cliched loud music, sudden movement on screen to get a reaction from the viewer. That’s not scary, that’s just lazy. Less than 30 minutes to go. I have been bored the last 30 minutes. M Night is very plodding sometimes.
Wow, this movie is finally ending. Bruce Willis was dead, the kid saw dead people. Get it? Great. This movie bored the hell out of me, and it should have been capable of so much more. Time to make a white Russian and hope the next movie is better. Wait, the next movie is Unbreakable? Fuck me.
I give this movie a 2.5 for a few good scenes, and a plot that should have been better, much better. Most overhyped horror film all time if you ask me, and you are kind of asking me, or else you wouldn’t be reading this. I wasn’t going to include any pictures, but I found this one and it reminds me of going upstairs at Teasers, the worst strip club ever. Now that shit is scary. This movie has nothing on Teasers from a horror standpoint.
Final Boob Tally.
One lady in a bra
One lady nude in a shower, but the door was too foggy.
2 close calls, but no bare breasts yet.
I don’t own that picture, I don’t want no legal issues, and blah blah blah, stuff I don’t know about.
