Whether you're a brother or whether you're a mother

So yesterday I confessed my secret desire to see Stay Alive, which opens this weekend. It seems I'm not alone. I was mystified by my urge, until I saw this poster again today. I mean...disembodied, shackled hands clutching a video game controller. No, not just clutching- hanging lifeless from a video game controller. Really, what's not to love? It's just. Plain. Silly. Bloody-Disgusting posts some more pictures from the film today, including a shot of what I assume to be the film's characters as video game characters. I do believe I suddenly want to see this movie desperately. After all that thinkin' I done did after a-watchin' High Tension t'other day, a movie about a killer video game is exactly what I need to let my brain cells return to their normal, flaccid state.

In fact, I spent all day today playing the wicked sweet remake of the original Resident Evil for Gamecube in some sort of training for/preparation to see Stay Alive.

OK, I was just lazy all day.

I really, really don't understand, Stacie. Are there no other movies out there? And Frankie Muniz ... are you serious?

Well, at least I can look forward to an interesting post about Stay Alive. Kinda one of those "I did it so you don't have to" things ... like my review of Macaulay Culkin's Junior with Josh. Check it out, if you haven't already.

I'm an idiot! What was I thinking, going into Stay Alive unprepared!?!

Thanks for the tip.

Ah, Brennon...never misses a chance to pimp his own shit in here! ;P

Dude, I'm no elitist! I went to see Man's Best Friend at the theatre, even. I'm always up for a little fun-time trash...and this movie looks like it just might deliver. I am simply denying the words "Frankie" and "Muniz" and their relation to this movie. Good times ahead!

Steve, that's what I'm here for- spreading the word. I also serve and protect when there's something in it for me.

Now, come on, people. Let's keep our minds open on this thing. Frankie Muniz could be the next Linnea Quigley. God knows he's at least the next Tuesday Knight.

Bam! I referenced Tuesday Knight!

I think the fact that it's not a remake makes it appealing.
I'm so exicted for Silent Hill. Sorry couldn't control myself.
