This is What I’m Talking About

screen cap of Blockbuster recommended flicks

Moments ago, BbO suggested the above films as possibilities when I added Rashômon to my queue.

They are so deeply out of whack I had to laugh. Pegging One Night at McCool’s as being at all similar to a black-and-white Japanese classic is like recommending that those who loved Cidade de Deus give Deuce Bigalow, Male Gigolo a rent.

They silly.

P.S. I don’t know what the hell the deal is with the narrow margins.

    Well, remember the scene when Ze’s gang makes Steak N’ Fries (a kid)shoot one of the kids (a seriously younger kid) so he can join ’em? Wasn’t the subversion of societal norms sort of shockingly funny, but not really? Just like Deuce Bigalow?

    I never saw One Night at McCool’s, but maybe that film also had a series of (SPOILER ALERT) unreliable narrators.
