Big evening planned

Saw two good and oddly parallel movies last night:

Both were very funny and should be added to your DVR/Tivo/Netflix immediately.

    i have both in netflix. can carolla act? he’s hilarious on a regular basis on radio. i loved the bbq podcast

  4. indeedindeed Says:

    he can’t really act, no. but the movie is just basically him being him, ranting, riffing. he can actually box though, so when he throws punches they’re authentic. not like watching costner pretend to be a golfer or whatever.

    also, i loved the kind of gritty cinematography, very stripped down portrayal of LA.

  6. Kenny Says:

    i enjoyed The Hammer too. And yes carolla was pleasantly surprising as a boxer. As jerry said the role doesn’t really require him to act, he’s basically playing a character that acts just like he does in real life. Only the character’s an unemployed loser.

  7. York Roberts Says:

    yeah. Kyley and I got the Hammer on netflix liek two weeks ago. We both enjoyed it. It was surprisingly good. Had a few laughs.

    Does your work browser totally block videos? It gives the title of the clip. Run Fatboy Run.

    Isn’t it kind of strange that costner is actually considered a “good” athlete for an actor. I mean most critics talk about how he’s more believable than most actors in athletic roles, which is why he has done so many of them.

    I think that its mostly because generally speaking actors are terrible athletes. So the fact that Costner can swing a golf club without looking like a complete idiot makes him look good by comparison.

    Take any of the episodes in entourage in which Ari golfs. The man is supposedly playing high stakes rounds of golf (Is Vince’s Career a “high stake” and he looks like he’s never swung a golf club before.

    The scene in American History X where Ed Norton plays ball on the beach courts, is so rediculously unbelievable, that i try to change the channel for those couple minutes when I see it on TV.

    I would say that the success rate for hollywood producing sports scenes that look remotely authentic is about 1/50.
