Demented Double Bill



The supermarket at Fulton and Masonic features odd DVD sales on your way out of the store, and last week there was a whole barrel filled with weirdo double bills. Other than the newly rehabilitated Beth Spotswood (click here), I can't imagine anybody else in the world during this holiday season wanting to watch "Flight 93" and the direct-to-video, shot-in-Poland 2003 Steven Seagal classic, "The Foreigner." Consumer capitalism just gets stranger every day.

Eat a dozen Krispy Kreme doughnuts washed down with a jug of hot cocoa and you're ready to watch anything. BTW, if Beth wants to hit a meeting, lemme know. I can hook her up with some kewl women who are magnificently sober, and monsterously fun.

Dear Mantium: You should go over to Beth's blog and leave the note for her there. "Magnificently sober and monsterously fun women" sounds great, to tell you the truth.

Dear Pedro: I have to confess a real fondness for all things Steven Seagal just because his films are so reliably weird and absurd. It was "Flight 93" as the co-feature that struck me as truly surreal.

I don't know. The pair of brain dead 20-somethings who live above me might like those movies. Dumb and dumber and loud and louder are just their style.
