Last week I saw an incomprehensible movie with no easily discernible plot. The movie was Inland Empire
and was directed by David Lynch.
This afternoon I saw an incomprehensible movie with no easily discernible plot. The movie was Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie For Theaters
and was not directed by David Lynch. That's Hollywood for you--cranking out the same cookie-cutter movies over and over and over again.
The opening sequence of ATHFCMFT
was vomit-threateninly funny. It was a parody of those little ads you see before the movie starts where anthropomorphic bags of popcorn and candy dance around and entice you to visit the concession stand. And then a bunch of hardcore and very metal pretzels, gumdrops and nachos throw down and blast out a kickass song called "Cut You Up With a Linoleum Knife". Which song contains some of the greatest lyrics in music history:
If I see you videotaping this movie
Satan will rain down your throat with hot acid
And saw your testicles
And turn your guts into snakes
This is a copyrighted movie for Time-Warner
If I found you sold it on eBay
I will break into your house and tear your wife in half
If I have one criticism of the film is that it needed more Carl. More Carl is always a frickin' good thing.
Now I'm jumping back on the Lynchian bandwagon and I'm working my way through Season 2 of Twin Peaks
. More on this later, perhaps.
