This Week in Things That Pissed Me Off! – 10/20/06

So there I am, watching Comedy Central when on comes a show that makes me literally want to rip my eyes out, Scrubs. Oh boy! As if we weren’t lucky enough to see the same 5 episodes of Mad T.V. re-aired over and over again that now I need to be force-fed this poor excuse for a sitcom with jokes that are so painfully unfunny that unless you were tripping out on acid you should have no reason to laugh at.

That brings me to my next question; why do people like Zach Braff? His whiny comedic antics are on par with that of a roller coaster flying off its tracks and killing hundreds in its wake, the man’s just not funny. Don’t get me wrong here either, I could understand if he was good looking, but the reality of the matter is that he just looks dirty and lazy. Are people really THAT bored that they’d pay to watch him on television and in films or are they just stupid?

Which leads me to The Marine…. Who on God’s green Earth even thought to say “John Cena isn’t exactly the most gifted wrestler in the WWE, so let’s give the man a movie deal.”

Now before I continue I just want to say that I’m about to give away a spoiler to this abysmal piece of art that will forever truly haunt the great archived classics of Hollywood. I’m going to be straight forward here, if you are really going to be upset by a spoiler of The Marine that means you actually want to see this movie, but have been too lazy to go, because this is simply a film that you go see opening week or you don’t go. That fact alone justifies me for spoiling this film for you, because you suck.

Back to the topic, in the film ‘The Marine’ John Cena portrayed an ex marine who was discharged from the military. Now even if you missed the high paced, action packed thrilling first 5 seconds of the film that created such an intriguing background story for the film that literally kept all 15 movie goers on the edge of their seats (probably ready to vomit and leave the theater), or were just a complete idiot and didn’t realize what movie it was that you paid to see, well don’t worry, there’s good news! John only mentions that he was a Marine all about five thousand times in the film. Seriously though, the man had 3 lines throughout the entire film that he had to constantly recite. It was like one of those old dolls with a pull string on the back, pull it for “I am a MARINE!”, “My wife was kidnapped!”, and “Oof!” Ok I guess we can’t really count the last line as an actual word. Of course however, to be fair to John, if his acting goal and directive was to try remain stiff and emotionless well then the man deserves an Oscar, because that was the best portrayal of a wood board I’ve ever witnessed. Oh and as for the ending? Well the entire film was your typical action film, wife gets kidnapped, bad guy double crosses another bad guy, the double crossed bad guy winds up being the cop whose been helping you out, etc. So you can easily take a wild guess as to how it ends.

Jon-Mikl Thor… Enough Said, look it up, moving on.

Sony, listen up. I don’t want a PS3, especially not for the $600 price tag. Oh wow, Blu-Ray DVD, whoop dee doo. Many people still have televisions that can’t differentiate the quality between VHS and DVD, why do we need an improved quality format? Was DVD really all that terrible? And are you really saving money buying a PS3 over a Blu-Ray player ANYWAY? Realistically? No your not, because chances are unless you were on line at a store at 7am last Monday waiting to buy a preorder, your going to be spending $2000+ on ebay for one. Honestly, this is beyond necessity and wanting, this is just stupid. Soon enough there will be a level of quality so precise that the human eye won’t be able to detect it and yet people will still believe that it’s a must. Further more, most of these games will be available on cheaper systems, sure their will always be the exclusive titles, but remember folks, graphics do not make the game, no matter how much you lie to yourself, it is the game play that keeps you coming back, the background story and characters that you learn to love and wait with anticipation of it’s sequels, not the flashy graphics and pretty pictures.

Back to the preorders. It is estimated that 75% of the preorders made are going straight to ebay, in fact many already made their way there. Some were removed, others not. Some for as high as the $2000 I mentioned earlier. Impressive? No, not really, quite sad actually that people feel the need to spend that amount of money of a product that will most likely collect dust. Even if you get a ps3 who are you going to play with? Chances are many of your friends won’t have it so friendly online play can be ruled out, have fun with the 12 year olds kicking your ass in one on one. Then of course if you pay the ebay price for it, how will you even afford games? How do people HAVE this kind of money to just toss away? People claim we’re in a depression and jobs are hard to find yet people are paying 2g for video games? Give me a break.

Finally, to round out the things that pissed me off the last two weeks, this past weeks Monday Night Raw had both Kevin Federline on, as well as Jackass and Wildboyz (It hurts me to even type that) stars Steve-O and Chris Pontius. Although K-Fed was booed without mercy, he did bring up a good point, that people are still buying his records and buying the magazines to read up on his life. STOP SUPPORTING HIM! I don’t care why people buy anything with his name on it or in it, even if it’s to make fun of him, stop, just stop it. That’s all I’m going to mention about him because if I say his name one more time, he will probably get a new record deal or something, simply cause he’s being mentioned on the internet.

As for Steve-O and Chris Pontius being on Raw, well, they wanted to get their asses kicked in a fight, which is fine, they’re stunt men who can’t make it big other then filming themselves getting injured in very comical situations. Its funny sure, and someone’s got to make this kind of comedy, but when one of them begins to actually have a successful career like Johnny Knoxville then its time to pull the plug. I wished I didn’t have to point this out, but if your claim to fame is having others throw bowling balls at your crotch then you DO NOT DESERVE to be put on the cover of GQ. Steve-O, Chris, remember these words I’m about to impart to you, keep on amusing us with your crazy stunts that no one else who is sane would ever do, but remember, we will never see you winning an academy award, so don’t try, because you won’t, if you were serious and even semi-decent actors, then you wouldn’t have to set your pubic hairs on fire for people to like you.

This is Big Danny D, and those were a few things that pissed me off this week.

  1. Awesome, just awesome.

    Next time you should include links to things in your post. Like Thor for example, linking to a video of him or something would have killed me.
