05.04.07  Tonight is a self-flagellating 2006 set-in-the-70s inspired-by-true-events uplifting pretty-boy-starring football movie double feature! I think that may be one of the most specific themes I've had yet. I think these movies are about as close as they can get to being the same movie without being remakes or sequels to one another. It's bound to be awesome in a way that will likely make me want to vomit.

First up is this one with McConaughey about a bunch of football players who die and the uplifting and unskilled freshman team who replace them. I guess the movie presents this story in a somewhat different tone but whatever. I thought it was awesome that they had the big moment be the second game of the season (which they won at the last second!) and then the voice-over at the end mentions that they lost every other game and kept losing for like 20 years. I love it when Hollywood somehow thinks they have to adhere to the truth and it completely goes against the whole movie that they make.

Since I don't watch Lost, Matthew Fox's charm is completely lost on me.


so... I really don't know why I'm doing this, but i'm doing it! Let's finish this sucker off
