The Passion of the Christ (2004) – We invented a drinking game for this Easter Vigil. Whenever Jesus gets hit, take a drink. Darien was the only one who played, and he went through quite a lot of drink.
Well, that’s forty movies. It’s been fun. Happy Easter, everyone, and remember: Jesus bled and bled and bled and eventually died for your sins.
The 39 Steps (1935) – I’ve been waiting a month and a half for that.
A note to politicians. I would definitely vote for a man named McCrocodile, and if I’m ever fleeing from someone, you can probably find me registered in a hotel as Mr. and Mrs. McCrocodile.
Dracula (1931) – Special thanks to the Katie’s Dad Collection for lending us so many of these wonderful classic movies. A special kick in the balls to the Katie’s Dad Collection for never rewinding after watching a movie.
Animal Crackers (1930) – Oh, I see. When I tell jokes by volume figuring some of them have to be good, people give me shit for it. But when Groucho does it, he’s a comic genius.
Incidentally, three of us watched this movie tonight, and each of us had our own favorite Marx brother. But nobody likes Zeppo. He hardly counts as a Marx at all.
The Ghost and Mrs. Muir (1947) – This movie has taken on too many seafaring metaphors! Bail out!
Memoirs of a Geisha (2005) – I know I said I’d watch more old-timey movies, but Katie wanted to watch this one, and she rarely has the time to watch a whole movie. That’s the trouble with education.
Sexy Beast (2000) – I didn’t understand half of this movie, and the other half is incomprehensible jibberish, but those halves together make for a very good movie.
Jarhead (2005) – Well, maybe I won’t join the Marine Corps after all.
Coming up, more old-timey movies, I swear.
Abre los Ojos (Open Your Eyes) (1997) – I like Spanish Tom Cruise better than regular Tom Cruise, I like regular Cameron Diaz better than her Spanish counterpart, and Spanish Penélope Cruz is about the same.
Crash (2004) – Early in this movie, I carefully cut my brains out of my head and put them somewhere safe. I was being beaten over the head so severely with racism, I didn’t want to get hurt.
