02.20.06Netflix I guess the moral of this story is to always always always fly instead of drive.

It's good. I wish I could've seen it in a theater because here at home when something isn't absolutely riveting I am much easier distracted. Still though, I think this was good in a 70s Corman sort of way... A few things I especially liked about it:

the cops firing into a parade full of highschool marching band jut to hit an unarmed Tommy Lee Jones. what!?

the fight scene where the random dude grabs a scythe and starts swinging away at Tommy lee Jones. What!!?

the cop smelling the hot dog. what!!!?

also, the film begins with someone spooling film into a projector. Of course we learn that it's an ad for sanitary napkins and the movie goes on from there, but it strikes me that it would be a really great way to cover opening credits for some other movie... a movie where it being a movie is inherent... to have some unseen person spool the film into the projector as the titles appear then maybe at the very end of the end credits you hear that sound of the film reel finishing and fwapping against itself as it spins around or something like that. could be cool.
