jst watched this havent seen it in ages quit funny seen better movies like this tho the friday films are much better than this
If I had to sum up my mood in one word, that'd be it. "Bleh."

I've got so much homework to do. And I keep putting it off ... plus I feel kind of sick today. I'm just feeling lazy and depressed. :p
Another day has begun ... and I'm sleepy! *Zzzzznoore* Christmas is over, and everybody takes down their decorations and throw out their Christmas trees. Gee, does that feel funny, or what

My C-level essay on Maria Gripe and Swedenborg (Swedish mystic from the 17hundreds) will be finished in a couple of weeks ... or so I hope. There are no dragons in it, but hey! You can't have everything!:)

I watched the movie "Half Baked" on vcr the other evening. Not really a favourite of mine, I can tell you that. It was ok, I suppose, but I don't feel like watching it again in a hurry. Maybe that's because I've never tried smoking pot? Hm...Naah! I don't think I'll try that just to understand that film. It would clash with my medication, anyway

I guess you are all VERY excited to hear about Larry the Knight and his dragonhunting, eh? Heh heh... Ok.

Larry - the Clutsy Dragonhunter
It was a beautiful day outside. Larry lay in bed and snored. He wasn't too keen on mornings, especially not the sunny ones. You see, Larry wasn't only allergic to dragons. He was allergic to practically everything that he liked. Cats made him sneeze, and so did dogs and small, furry rodents. Oranges gave him a hickough. Chocolate gave him a sore throat, and birch trees caused him to barf. Well, this stuff about him throwing up every time he saw a birch tree wasn't technically to do with allergies. It could, however, have something to do with that time when he was to a funfair and the merry-go-round crashed. Exactly what happened is unclear, but that machine suddenly went spinning like crazy and sent poor Larry, who was at the time three years old and still using diapers, flying through the air and crashing head first against a ...guess what? That's right. A birch tree. Larry had a serious concussion and could hardly see straight for a week. It didn't get any better because his mummy thought he needed some fresh air, and placed him in the garden, just under a - everybody, now - BIRCH TREE. Every time the little boy looked up, he saw the tree, mostly rocking from side to side. (A concussion tends to make you a little dizzy, you know.) It was a sight that would make a dolphin seasick. So, who can blame poor old Larry for not loving birch trees, hm?

Anyway, Larry was busy sleeping when his dear mother came marching into his room.
"Laaarriieeee!" she roared. "Laarriiee-baby! It's time to get up!"
When he didn't immediately rise and shine (God, how I hate that expression!), she walked directly up to his bed, lifted it up and shook it. Larry's mum had the physique of a professional wrestler, and she didn't mind using it. Especially not when her beloved offspring needed her assistance, and he did most of the time.
"It's time to slay some dragons!" she chirped, while spinning the bed round and round. "Time to sneeze them! Time to "blow" their minds, heh heh ..."
"Aw, Mum! I sneezed one yesterday, remember?" Larry wasn't really in the mood to go out and sneeze on dragons today. Of course he was aware that he had a rare gift; not many other guys could produce so much dragon-killing snot that they practically could bathe in it, but...
"When your father was young, he killed at least four dragons a week! Now, that was a fabulous nose!" His mother gazed dreamily into the world of memories. Larry made a sour face and headed for the bathroom.

"The Bogeymans called, sweetie. They have trouble with a small dragon in their dungeon. It gnaws on their torture devices."
"Aaimallgrofffokrumf" said Larry.
"Don't speak with food in your mouth, sweetie!"
He swallowed viciously.
"I am allergic to dungeons."
"So much the better! I told them you'd be there right after breakfast!"
"How many times have I told you not to speak with food in your mouth???!!"

The Bogeymans' front door looked absolutely horryfying. It was yellow, with a pink handle, and had a disgustingly cute sign with the words "Here live Moldy, Mildred and Frog" nailed onto it. Larry winced as he rang the bell and a chime version of "Love me tender" echoed through the garden.

Films watched between January 1, 2004 - January 3rd, 2004.
Half Baked, 4/5, This is a hard review to write. As an artistic film asshole kind of guy, I have to shun the genre of gross out moronic happy madison comedies, but as a pothead, I have to love pothead movies. Well this is about the modern day world of potheads, its pretty over the top in some areas, but thats Chappelles style. It feels somewhat like british humour, but mixed with the slang a ebonics that America loves.

The story is pretty basic, one of the roomates friends gets arrested for killing a police horse, and they have to sale drugs to get him out. Simple right? Add in some moronic jokes, a slew of celeb cameos, and a guy who just seems to live with them, and you've got a pretty hilarious film.

Don't take it as something lovely and philosophical, or some sort of genre defying pop culture changeing earth shakeing multi million dollar blockbuster, this is a movie for potheads, and with lines like "I may have liked getting high, but I liked pussy a whole lot more." its outragous to think this film gets snubbed so much. Concidering the other pothead stoner comedies these days are just plain stupid, Half Baked is a gem in a bag of dudes cars, if only for the cameos.
Where: DVD

one line review: Pretty stupid stoner film that is saved by the presence of Dave Chapelle.

This is one of those movies where after watching it halfway you realize you've seen it before. And fallen asleep during it. (In my case it was on a bus ride from Ottawa to Miami for a week of partying). Still, this is one of those classic films that people constantly do "bits" from, so I figured it was worth watching it in its entirety.

It isn't a good movie. At all. The only remotely saving grace is Dave Chapelle. Dude is funny. And Harland Williams is pretty funny as Kenny. But other than that the entire premise of the movie is utter crap. This is one of those movies that you want to save for moments when you want to turn off your brain.


Brian : Get some sour cream and onion chips with some dip, man, some beef jerky, some peanut butter. Get some Haagen-Dasz ice cream bars, a whole lot, make sure chocolate, gotta have chocolate, man. Some popcorn, red popcorn, graham crackers, graham crackers with marshmallows, the little marshmallows and little chocolate bars and we can make s'mores, man. Also, celery, grape jelly, Cap'n Crunch with the little Crunch berries, pizzas. We need two big pizzas, man, everything on 'em, with water, whole lotta water, and Funyons.
Kenny Davis : That's it?
Thurgood Jenkins : Yeah, get me a box of condoms, and, what was that thing we used to eat back in the day? What was it... oh yeah, pussy.

Kenny Davis : You guys gotta get me out of here! There's this guy Nasty Nate who wants my cocktail fruit, and everyone here likes fresh fish! Then The Squirrel Master came out of left field and told me I'm his bitch!

Cocaine Addict : Marijuana is not a drug. I used to suck dick for coke. Now that's an addiction. You ever suck some dick for marijuana?

Brian : Lady, seven bucks for a used Kenny Loggins record? I'll give you five.
Record Store Customer: Ugh-huh, he autographed it himself.
Brian : Alright, I'll give you four.

Thurgood Jenkins : You know I got some weed at work today, if y'all wanna try it out.
Scarface : Nah, we don't feel like smokin right now.
Thurgood Jenkins : Me neither. So y'all wanna smoke?
Scarface : I'll get Billy Bong Thornton!
Brian : No man. No Billy Bong Thornton without Kenny. That wouldn't be right. Get Wesley Pipes.

Kenny : In eleven days I'm as good as skewered! Ever take your clothes off and run backwards through a cornfield?

Kenny : Hey, girl! You hungry?
Overwight Woman : Fuck you, nigga!
Kenny : I'm sorry! I was talking to the horse.
First, there was dazed and confused. Then there was this. Dazed and confused was great because, it wasn`t just stoner humor (Which i hate anyway) it had a good soundtrack and good actors (Minus HB with Harland Williams, great comedian) David Chapelle blows goats in anything he does, this is no better. He drags down everyone he`s with in anything. Stoners aren`t funny, they`re just dumb. I`ve only liked watching stoners when I sell Tic-Tacs to stupid pre-teens behind bars and tell them it`s drugs and watch them "Trip". Grass culture sucks anyway. I hated this movie to the point where I turned it off and wondered why the hell this got such noteriety. :rotten: Wow! Drugs! I`ve never seen a movie with those before. Stupid humor, sometimes yes even stoner humor is funny when you use it right, not when you base a shitty movie on it. Fuck Chapelle for going to the lowest common denominator again...fuck him with a pine tree. :down:
With all the crap being pushed into theaters as of late and the b-movie hangover from Alone in the Dark, I've pulled some hilarious flicks, involving potheads and idiots.
Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
The mackdaddies of Jeresy are back! I'd only seen Dogma before seeing this. I laughed my butt off from start to finish. With so many cameos, it was hard for this movie to get boring. This movie is packed with profanity and awesome quotes.
Half Baked
The first movie where Dave Chappelle's talent showed potential. I'm not sure why so many people disliked this film. It is just a stupid comedy, with stupid characters. You got to love Dave and Jim in this as well as the others.
Detroit Rock City
I never thought I would like this movie, but when I watched it with a friend, I found a wonderful comedy. It is cookie cutter in the sense that it is like a lot of teen road trip movies. It gets better once they make it to their destination.
Beavis and Butt-Head Do America
One of the few cartoon show to movie successes in my book. Just stupid fun. It is a shame that the show is cancelled as the show and the movie have a lot classic scenes and quotes.
Low production value and definitely for stoners. Which is a shame, because no one actually smokes weed anymore.
