Regretting Change Yet?

My blood has been boiling for the past year ever since Barry rigged an election, brought to you in part by ACORN and the SCIU, and has been destroying our country ever since. The very first thing he did to dismantle this wonderful nation was closing Gitmo within a year. The question that followed was, where are these TERRORISTS going to be contained? The answer was unveiled to be a security facility in rural Illinois. That's odd considering Barry is from Illinois, one of the many places he's from. I believe that is relatively close to Michigan where there is a haven for Muslims. I'm not saying all Muslims are bad. It's just to coincidental, this doesn't smell right to me.
Let's not put all our attention on that one minor detail of information. Attorney General Eric Holder, who just so happens to look like a black Hitler, announced that terrorists involved with the attacks on September 11, 2001 will be tried in court... in New York City!! Barry and the libs are bringing terrorists onto our soil and be put into an American courtroom for their trial. Holder tries to make it sound like justice is being served with this action. Honestly it sounds like the worst idea this administration has had all year, and there were a lot of bad ideas from these guys within this year. 
The argument is that the police will keep the citizens safe from the convicts. I believe the police will do so as long as it's in their jurisdiction. It's not! These Muslim terrorists are going to make a mockery of our judicial system and may possible be acquitted. Something very odd about this is that Holder is taking the responsibility for this and not Barry. Lets not be fooled this stinks of B.O., Barack Obama, and his radical agenda. Of course Barry is conveniently out of the country during this development. This isn't the first time this has happened. Seems like whenever something is announced controversially he's always out of town or country. He then plays the legendary game for thirteen-year-olds called "I didn't know".
This is the bottom line. If Barry's administration is doing this without his knowing then they don't have respect for him. However, considering this isn't the first time, probably won't be the last, it's to obvious that it's part of his agenda. He can't blame former President George W. Bush anymore. If this country is attacked because of his ignorant, egotistic, and irresponsible actions then I demand he be impeached immediately. Along with his administration close behind.

Slashing Away... in 3D!

I spent the last couple of days watching horror movies. September and October is when I get in the mood for some scares. Some are recent, some from the 1980s and I even watched a documentary about slasher films of the late 1970s to the mid 1980s. The doc is appropriately titled The Rise and Fall of the Slasher Films and the filmmakers behind them talked briefly about the stages it went through and how they were always profitable. Then like all good things how it came to an end. They spoke briefly about how the Saw series became big money makers, the documentary was released in 2006. 
After this I took a look at the horror movies that have been released since the documentary was released. Nothing really jumped out at me as a big horror movie that everyone saw and talked about. Lets face it, the Saw series isn't a sure thing like it used to be. Yes the movies are still profitable but when a new one is announced people role their eyes instead of being excited. There are still fans to the series but they're dwindling. Looking at this past weekend many analyst expected Jennifer's Body to be at least a strong #2 with just under $20 million. The film ended up in 5th place with under $7 million. Fortunately for 20th Century Fox the film cost around $16 million to produce. Last weeks Sorority Row only opened around $5 million. I knew this film wouldn't be a big money maker but I expected a little more money. I point these two films out because one is an original film and the other is a remake, with the latter being more of a popular trend with studios. Both types of horror movies weren't expected to make loads of money but still were hoping on a little profit. 
It now seems the only think that can save the horror genre is 3D. This year My Bloody Valentine and The Final Destination were released in 3D giving more thrills to the audience. The odd part is that it worked. My Bloody Valentine was produced for around $15 million and made around $50 million. The Final Destination is still doing well in the box office thanks to the 3D attraction. Not only did they make a profit on the film but it is also the highest grossing movie of the series. This isn't the first time 3D is being used on horror movies. It started in the 1950s and keeps coming back every so often, Amityville 3-D and Jaws 3-D . Now it seems that 3D is here to stay. Horror movies aren't the only ones using it but they are the ones benefitting the most from it. CG animated movies have been doing it for the past 4 years or so. 
For the rest of the year there are three more movies being released in 3D and many more scheduled for next year. I even read that Saw 7, coming out October 2010, is going to be in 3D. The Weinstein Company is releasing the Piranha remake in 3D and also Halloween 3, of the new series, will be in 3D. Until these movies start doing poorly 3D is here to stay and isn't just an attraction at amusement parks. The main question, why are horror remakes and sequels receiving the 3D treatment? Looking ahead Joe Dante's new movie, The Hole, is being done in 3D. I know Joe Dante has credibility as a director but if they're trying to launch a new horror movie series, then they should go the extra mile. They should make it in 3D. 
I said before that remakes aren't stopping anytime soon. Looking at the list of horror remakes in development about 1/2 to 3/4 of them are being considered for 3D. It's just the matter of the studio executives picking which one will get the treatment or not. Only time will tell. I do hope movies like Pandorum, Paranormal Activity or The Box can kick start a new trend in horror.

Who matters to us?

This past week I recently got in contact with two of my friends from high school. There has been a long gap since I have spoken to either of them. One was my best friend even up through the first 2 years of college. The other was a friend I lost contact with as soon as we graduated. We always had laughs and fun together. Looking back I regretted I lost contact with them.
I remember the day Mike and I met in home room back in the sixth grade. Ever since then we were friends. Talked about video games, music, movies, school (that goes without say) and we both played the slide trombone in band. Our quote was, "the low brass gets no respect". We didn't care how stupid it sounded because it was true. There were about six of us which were Tuba players, Baritone players and of course the Trombone players. I remember we were excited when we had ten low brass members. What more do you expect from a small school. When Mike and I were catching up it was like the past five years never happened. It seemed as if it was just last week when we spoke. We were talking up to the early hours in the morning over the things we always do. We even spoke about some things that I've written about on this blog and we agreed on a lot of things. That was pretty interesting because he and I would usually go 8 for 10 on the agreement department. It was 10 for 10 the other day. 
Then there was my best friend Vince. He and I also met in the sixth grade. We became really good friends that winter during CYO (Catholic Youth Organization) basketball. From there our friendship grew and we talked about the same things Mike and I talked about. There was even one time when Vince and I were interested in the same girl during our Freshman year of high school. We didn't get angry or competitive with each other. It turned out some other guy started dating her and that was the end of it. We hung out together all the time and on weekend Vince, myself and our friends were always together. School events, outside social events, and whatever else that would be brought to our attention. We haven't spoken to each other in about 3 1/2 years. We ended our friendship on rough terms. To sum it up briefly, things had to be his way or no way. He had to be controlling and be the center of everything. He was even telling me how I should live my life. I'm not talking advice, I'm saying he actually told me what I should do. I gave him the benefit of the doubt at first but things got worse and worse. There wasn't any other way around it so I disconnected myself from him. I wasn't the only one, his own cousin didn't want anything to do with him. He can handle him now but only in small doses. When he added me as a friend on Facebook I thought that since there's been some time maybe we could patch things up. Within 24 hours of accepting his request I removed him from my group of friends. Obviously things weren't any better and he was the same. He was pushing pro Obama agenda down my throat and I didn't want to put up with it. 
I have a system. I use Twitter for politics and whatever and Facebook is for keeping in touch with my real friends. I keep them separate because my friends either have the same views as me, different views or they don't care. I could ignore Vince's postings but at the same time he needs to be corrected on some of the things he says. I didn't want to annoy my friends with that and took the higher road once again. I quote Linus Van Pelt, "There are three things you should never discuss with people; politics, religion and the Great Pumpkin".
What I'm getting at is people change for the better, people change for the worse and then you have the people who don't change at all. No matter what happens you should keep in touch with people you really care about. The people that matter most to you help makes you the person you are. We are all different but there are similarities that makes us connect with each other and from that friendships are formed. Today is September 11, 2009 and eight years ago politics and current events didn't matter to me. Before that day my biggest concern was trying to understand Chemistry and wanting to ask the cute girl I saw in halls out on a date. There's still that occasional cute girl that still pops up every so often but now I'm more concerned about politics and world events. I'm focused on the worries of the country and the world. Today I ask you to put aside your differences and ask what really matter to you? Take a chance and reach out to people you haven't spoken to in a long time. You might regret it and you might not but at least you are putting fourth the effort. You are demonstrating that you are willing to put aside petty differences. If the other person doesn't share your motivation then try again in a year or two.
This day will forever be burnt in my memory. It's when I saw the world differently, it was a day we were afraid, we didn't know what was going to happen. The only thing we knew was that we would get revenge on the Muslim extremists that attacked us. We waved the American flag proudly and weren't afraid to show our pride to be a country of freedom. What's happened since that day? Why is everything politics? Now even talking about cars is politics because our government is a major share holder of General Motors and Chrysler. I ask you to put aside your differences and when you reach out to others don't push your views down their throats. Treat each other like the friend that you remember them to be and maybe you can regain sight into the type of person you really are.

What a week for the Mouse House

This was a crazy week in the entertainment industry and it all started on Monday. On this day it was anounced that Rambo 5 was given the greenlight, meaning they got the go ahead to start making the movie, Sony hired a screenwriter for Bad Boys 3 in hopes Jerry Bruickheimer, Will Smith, Michael Bay of Pigs, and Martin Lawrence will return for another round of action and great humor. The Weinsteins are already planning to make Halloween 3D for 2010 and Rob Zombie isn't returning, instead he'll be ruining another classic The Blob.
The big story this day was Disney buying Marvel, the legendary comic book company. Many people were surprised, many people were upset and others don't know what to expect. I'm going on the optimistic end and say this is going to be a terrific time ahead of us. Many of you are wondering what will come from this. I can only imagine and that's what I'm going to tell you. First of all I'd like to mention that Marvel has 5000 characters under their banner. Out of those 5000 only about 20 of them are wide/worldly known in the mainstream world. Here are my thoughts.
Television shows: This might seem like a route not quick to the mind and people will think that this is a terrible idea. Permit me to take you back to the late 1980s and early 1990s when every September Disney released a new syndicated cartoon. The titles, you might remember, were Duck Tales, Darkwing Duck, Talespin, Chip & Dale's Rescue Rangers and Goof Troop just to name a few. Now lets come back to today and put shows like that on the air again under the Disney banner. I purchased Volume 1 of Talespin not to long ago and was surprised with how violent it was for a kids/Disney cartoon, especially by todays PC standards. The head of the Animation program and Pixar founder John Lasseter was happy and it was stated he got excited very quickly. If these Saturday morning/after school cartoons start again I think we can see them as early as 2011. This a prediction, not a confirmation of this on the date.
Shows on ABC prime time schedule could happen as well. Look at what Disney did with Lost, yes that is a show released by ABC Studios. If you think the show is watered down to fit Disney's image than you have never watched the show. Also with Lost on their last season and ABC is trying hard this season to find a replacement for the show, i.e. Flash Forward and the V reboot. I wouldn't be surprised if Stephen McPherson, ABC President, finds a property he can't wait to get his hands on. If this is the case there could be Marvel primetime show as early as Premiere week in 2010. It doesn't take long for a television show to get on the air unlike the big screen.
Obviously the movie industry will be heavily impacted with all these properties. Now Paramount still has the rights to make and release Thor, Captain America, The Avengers and Iron Man 2 & 3. Sony still has the hot Spider-Man franchise, Ghost Rider, Luke Cage and a solo Venom movie. Fox has the X-Men property, Daredevil and Fantastic Four. Funny enough on within 24 hours of the Disney/Marvel announcement 20th Century Fox decided to "reboot" the Fantastic Four films. Universal Pictures also has The Incredible Hulk and supposedly Sub-Mariner. No more details are known yet on what they are doing with the reboot but we should find out in time. If you're afraid that Disney will water down these dark titles then you forget that Disney also owns Touchstone Pictures, released The Rock, Signs, Enemy of the Stare, and Miramax Films, released Gangs of New York, Pulp Fiction, No Country For Old Men. If you're still not satisfied then you'll just have to wait and see for yourself. Now it's unknown what will come to the big screen first but my prediction is that something will be put on their film slate by 2013 maybe 2012 depending if it gets put on the fast track, excuse pun Disney Park goers. 
Since I mentioned it the parks will be heavily marketing the Marvel characters. Getting your picture taken with them, selling merchandise with the Marvel crew and maybe make some rides or even their own section in a park. My guess would be they would add something for them at the Hollywood Studio, that's the name the Studios is going by right now. I'm going to say something like that will happen in the next 10-15 years. The reason for the long span is because I don't know if they'll build a new foundation or remodel a building already existing. 
If you're worried about the comic books getting watered down I don't think there will be any problem with that. I don't think Disney really cares about the actual comic books but are instead more focused on marketing and exploiting them to the max.
Only time will tell what will come from this big development. One last thing worth mentioning about Disney themselves is they just gave a release date for Tron Legacy. The date is December 17, 2010. It currently shares a release date with The Smurfs, Yogi Bear and Seth Rogen's The Green Hornet. The Smurfs will definitely move because Sony is releasing that and The Green Hornet. Which one will move first, we'll just have to wait and see.

Summer 2009 we hardly knew you. Part 2

This summer was filled with thrills and outrage every time you listened to the news. I guess when Barry received a diploma from Notre Dame for no reason and gave a speech where a lot of people booed him one man was even escorted out. I have to ask did anyone else see those devil horns on the stage giving an acceptance speech to a "Catholic" school.
From there went to the Sonya Sotomayor hearings where Al Franken asked such hard questions like events in a specific episode of Perry Mason. Franken didn't have to finish the sentence but for some reason Sotomayor new. The Republicans were said to go after her hard and some of them did like Senator Jeff Sessions. Then you have Senator Lindsay Graham making the statement that as long as you don't have a mental breakdown you will be confirmed. So that entire event was a waist of time. Oh yes, I forgot that Al Franken became a senator brought to you in part by ACORN, illegal unregistered voters and viewers like you.
During this time Barry was using the hearing as a distraction while he sat in a meeting with lobbyists about the upcoming Cap & Trade bill, a.k.a. Cap & Tax. This and the "Health Care Reform" bill were being heavily talked about. Sadly Michael Jackson passed away and since the news media were covering that 24/7 Barry decided to use that as a distraction for the House of Representatives to vote on the Cap & Tax bill, this after all week they were oddly talking about health care. Minority Leader John Boehner read some pieces of the 1000 plus page health care reform bill.  After an hour and a half of reading the bill the great Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi came out and said, "let's not forget those four words that this legislation means: jobs, jobs, jobs and jobs! Let's vote for jobs!" After watching that I went to my fridge to have a beer and thought she forgot her pompoms. 
How could we ever forget that popular beer summit that occurred with Officer Crowley and the Professor from Harvard. This was a very important teachable moment for all to see. It should that even Obama thought his health care bill is a crack of shit. Just like his Cash for Clunkers that was supposed to get the automotive industry working again, they worked but they didn't get paid. Did anyone get paid from the Cash for Clunkers program or did that just cause more debt? As for Speaker Pelosi, I hate calling her that, the argument of the CIA lying to them about waterboarding to terrorist. I don't understand the problem. Jihadist want to kill innocent people, they don't like the way of our living. They are brainwashed terrorist and they do deserve torture which isn't anything compared to torture in other countries. Waterboarding is the PG-13 version of interrogations. Get over it you stupid liberals.
The month of July saw the heated debate about the health care reform going on at town hall meetings and the people came out and were angry about it. These are the people who have a lot of free time now because they're home unemployed because the unemployment rate hit 9.5%, this wasn't supposed to happen because the great Obama said unemployment wouldn't hit 8% because of his stimulus bill. The town hall meetings and debating saw the great Barry's approval rating starting to tumble. As of this writing it's around 50%, I'm giving the rough average. This would continue into August where nothing was getting done and Barry wanted this health care reform done before the Senate went on recess. This didn't happen either and let's not forget the Democrats are blaming the Republicans because of this bill not getting the votes it needs. How quickly some people forget that the Democrats have full control over the House and the Senate. The Republicans don't have to vote on a bill for it to get passed. It's all the Democrats and they're just passing the blame onto someone else, only this time it's not working. 
Worldwide saw the riots of Iran because of an alleged rigged election, don't get mad at me but they can't prove if ACORN was there or not. Obama said that the people in Iran had a right to protest which is nice of him to give his approval on something like that in another country. Wait a second! People do that here in this country only two things are different. First they're called Tea Parties and second they protest peacefully, which is why the news media doesn't pay much attention to them.
As the debate went on Barry Obama said the people were getting wee-weed up. For those of you who don't know what that means he pretty much said people are getting pissed off with the morons in control of political legislation and the health care bill itself. When Barry was away at Martha's Vineyard the lion of the senate, not the wizard of oz, passed away from brain cancer. They gave this criminal full coverage and treated him like royalty, what else would you expect from a member of Camelot. Let's not forget that Attorney General Eric Holder is now investigating the CIA about pretty much whatever he wants. For those of you who don't know who Eric Holder is, he's the guy who looks like a black Hitler. The head of the CIA Leon Panetta might even resign because he can't stand Obama and his administration.
Once again another end of summer another California fire. Is there really anything left to catch on fire in California. There have been so many fires in that state there can't be much more to catch on fire.
A Scotland judge released Abdul Baset Ali al-Megrahi from prison. A terrorist who was involved with an American Plane bombing in December 1988 over Lockerbie, Scotland. al-Megrahi was released because his cancer has gotten worse and his time is almost up on this earth. This was a terrible ruling the judge made, even Hilary Clinton and Barry were angry about this event. Everyone has the right to be angry about this. Innocent people were killed and this monster was let lose because the judge should empathy. Wait a minute! Empathy! I've heard that word before if only I can remember. Oh yes I remember now. Those were the words Obama used to explain what he would be looking for in a supreme court judge. Which would be Sonya Sotomayor. Now if Sotomayor makes a ruling like that, beside the case involving the New Haven firemen which was based on race, Barry can't say he didn't know. That's what he wanted and he got it.
It's only a matter of time to see what Barry and liberals will do next. All we can do is just sit, wait and have beer ready for the next summit because we're going to get wee-weed up and ready for 2010 and 2012. One last thing I need to mention is Sarah Palin stepping down from being Governor of Alaska. Many people think she's a quitter and she has skeletons in the closet, unlike Barney Frank who has boys in his. They have been digging for a year now and still can't find anything that is sticking other than "she's stupid". I just wonder what these people think of Joe Biden. Don't rule her out and watch out because we haven't seen the last of her. I'm going to put it this way on todays date, September 2, 2009, there are two and a half years until we find out who the Republican front runner is going to be. Politics will be played and the best will, most likely, be the winner of the nomination. If that happens to be Sarah Palin I do believe she will do a fantastic job. She will bring pride and dignity back to this country and won't apologize for everything that our country has done, except for maybe between 2009 and 2012.

Summer 2009 we hardly knew you. Part 1

I thought since a lot schools are back in session or within the next couple of weeks I could sum up for you what happened the past couple of months. This first part takes a look at the entertainment area of the summer. 
We'll start light and talk about music. The a**hole Eminem released a new album and people bought it. We're still in a recession and people are still buying garbage. Green Day released a new album and was number 1 for three weeks, I'm happy not everyone is buying garbage. Taking Back Sunday's new album New Again released on June 2 and debuted at #7, which is pretty good for a group that doesn't get enough recognition. Ashley Tisdale had a new album and movie Aliens in the Attic that nobody saw, I'm sure it will do well on Home Viewing formats. Taylor Swift really climbed the charts with her new single You Belong To Me. Black Eyed Peas new album has two hit songs already and I must say the song Boom Boom Pow has to be the worst song I've ever heard in my entire life. I was pretty angry they played that song after G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra.  
That will take us into the movie scene (excuse pun), Memorial weekend saw two Blockbusters went face to face; Terminator: Salvation and Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonians. For some unknown reason Terminator 4 came in second place to the Liberal Ben Stiller and his new family comedy. Night at the Museum 2 was easily the most unnecessary sequel made this year but it broke even. T4 is having trouble breaking even and Terminator 5 is now in jeopardy. That wasn't the only problem for Christian Bale this summer. His teaming with Johnny Depp has only made about $95 million and is said to have a budget of $100 million. I know that isn't bad but it should have done better than Ice Age 3 and Night at the Museum 2.
Three of the biggest money makers this summer had unknown actors star in them. Those films were Star Trek, The Hangover and G.I. Joe. District 9 is also doing well but it's not going to make the type of bling that those movies made/are making. Will Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen both had films under perform than expected. People are realizing these guys play the same character in every movie and it's really getting annoying. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince still has a chance of hitting $300 million in the states. However since the fans of the book are really mad at what they did it might fall just short of that marker because of them giving bad buzz for the flick. Finally the big movie of summer Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen directed by Michael Bay of Pigs. Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox have been riding high on the success train since the first film and now are bigger stars than before. Shia and Megan have some big projects coming within the next year so keep your eyes and ears open for more on them.
Then there is television and we have to talk about Jon and Kate Plus Eight. The reason is because the show has been on for five years but now people are actually talking about it because Jon wants a divorce and already has a new girlfriend. I'm sorry but this just smells like a ratings thing to me. The show started it's fifth season, nobody talked about the show and probably didn't know it was on. Then one day they're on the front cover of every tabloid. I know it's a nice break from seeing Barry Obama everywhere but still it's annoying. 
So You Think You Can Dance and America's Got Talent are still on television. They're still the big summer ratings winners. Who Wants To Be a Millionaire returned for a ten year anniversary special. Ratings are stuck on that show, it seems they can't get passed 7 million viewers. The other summer shows are on cable with the big winners from new shows this year are Warehouse 13, Royal Pains, Hawthorne and Dark Blue is doing well also. Expect these shows to be around for a while. Let's not forget about the established shows such as The Closer and Monk doing terrific ratings.
The only big fiction book getting any buzz is the new Dan Brown book The Lost Symbol which involves the character Robert Langdon. (from Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons) The book will be released on September 15. I know that it's not a summer release exactly but there aren't any books this year people are waiting for. The Harry Potter books are done, no more of people waiting in line to buy a book. Until something new comes along.
That's it for now. Come back next week for Part 2 which will focus on current events and real news, not gossip.

Fanboy or not?

Where is the line that one crosses that makes you a fanboy? Do you get mad when a movie messes up a characters portrayal? I mean really nit-pick the character apart like Batman is left handed not right handed. For the record I don't know what Batman's dominate hand is. I'm just using that as an example. If someone can answer that question I think that would make you a fanboy. If you know his basic villains and maybe the few that didn't make it to the big screen I think that would make you a fan.
According to Merriam-Webster Online the definition of fanboy is a boy who is an enthusiastic devotee (as of comics or movies). Now with a definition like that I would personally fall under this title. I have to say it's better than being called a geek. Now the problem is that I'm not that picky when it comes to movies. I might have a few things that annoyed me about the film but all people do that. From getting dizzy watching Transformers 2 cameras spinning around Megan Fox and Shia LaBeouf until they finally kiss, if you saw that in IMAX it's worse than on the small screen. Then you have G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra with the suits that make the Joes run faster and do anything they can want. Now those suits were never in the cartoon or the comics. The suits didn't bother me and I thought they were awesome. That is two different types of critiquing; talking about the way it was filmed and talking about the source of the material. 
Now fanboys watch a movie, complain about it and write on their blogs how much they hate it (wink). There is a rear occasion that they like something and praise it every chance they get. Which leads to my next question. What makes a film/franchise/property fanboy material? Does it have to involve Science Fiction or a long running series? Do fanboys ruin entertainment for others? The Star Trek conventions made people feel embarrassed to say they watched the show. Maybe not now after the fantastic movie that came out in May 2009 but there was a time when Trekkies were made fun of for their love and devotion for the series. Then you have Ghostbusters, a franchise that everyone loves and aren't afraid to admit it. People quote the movie today and it was released 25 years ago. It has served the test of time and is still enjoyable to watch. Even television shows like 24, CSI and Lost have devoted viewers that watch every week to see what's going to happen to the characters and watch the plot unfold during the new episode. They talk about the episode with others on a social network or, I shudder to say it, in person. It gives people something to talk about instead of there lives and current events. It's an outlet from the real world.
The truth is fanboys are everywhere. There is really nothing that can prevent Fanboys from forming around something. You can try to prevent being a Fanboy or a fangirl. The problem is that people always have something they like or love. Studios and companies appreciate them because they'll spend money for what is targeted towards them. Fanboys are the unofficial critics giving material an approval. Big blockbuster movies are now targeted towards this group because of the built in fan base. Fanboys have been around for a while and are now becoming better known because of these properties that are everywhere. Would a movie studio spend a pile of money on huge fighting robots if they weren't sure people would see it? The answer is no. The studios care and they want money, like all companies do. They don't want to invest money in a film if it doesn't make a profit.
Finally the reason for this entry is because I just watched the movie Fanboys. It's a good and funny. It follows a group of fans in the fall of 1998 trying to steal an early print of Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace. Some people from the Apatow crew are in it. The film is available to watch on whatever your main entertainment source is, DVD, Blu-Ray, etc.
