: to get involved after the fact! STUPID!!!!!!
What? I didn't do nuthin'.
: I apologised for the mis-nomer (mistake, misinformation, lack of reading text properly, etc) but still people felt the need to put in their pennys worth! (dime, quarter, whatever you people use to trade).
In my country, we barter.
: I admitted I had made a mistake very early in the game, but still you people felt the need to post, in an inane effort to make a difference. Flaming someone for something, when that person has already admitted defeat, is very redundant!!!!
It sure is.
: Get out more!!!!! Surely your lives have more meaning than this!!!!
No. Not really.
: Darth Dobbin, No doubt, you were right! I bow to you!
No bowing. It makes me uncomfortable.
: But everyone else, you wasted precious time. I even got flamed from people from this side o' the pond. (Thanks IrishBob).
Go back to Irishland, drunky!
: My only excuse, and it is not much of one, is that last night, while reading aforementioned book (Goldman's) I was just too tired to have payed real attention. Pity, as so far the book has been very enlightening, informative, touching (Andre the Giant's death) and helpful!
Cary Elwes was in the Princess Bride, too.
: So please, when someone as lowly as myself, admits defeat, go with it, and try and stop yourselves from getting on the almighty HIGH horse that so many posters have taken to doing of late.
: Now, start asking Kevin as to his involvement in the GWH program. I bet that a little more than 'doctoring' was involved!
Are you implying something? I don't like your implications...
: Like I said before, Ben and Matt are Talentless Fucks. Selling Points is all!!!!
Au Contraire! BEn Affleck is a fine, fine actor, and a good person, too. You see, I judge people by how they appear on latenite talk shows. When ben was on Kilborn, i almost poopied in my pants. Enough said. Matty, while maybe not quite of the Affleckian level of awesomivity, is still one of Hollywood's foremost young actors. (too bad Bagger and Horses bombed)
: Ben's biggest; Armaggeddon, laughed off stage at Cannes. (Not Ben, but the film, but he wasn't that good anyway).
Cannes you stop with the nonsense? (hee hee, PUN!) Armageddon was cool, the Brucemeister was solid! (what??)
: Matt's biggest; Private Ryan. The film is good until Matt gets involved. Not necessarily his fault, but y'know.
SPR is a fantastic movie, filled with fantastic performances and some surprising yet rewarding cameos. (Ted Danson!!!)
: Explains why nobody saw either 'Forces of Nature', 'Reindeer Games' or 'Rounders', and why Williams had to be used to sell 'GWH' in the first place.
Forces Of Nature is for chix. Reindeer games did suck, though Affleck did put in an excellent performance ("and a piece of muthaf***in pecan pie!"). I mean, id Dennis Farina can't save a movie, who can? WHo doesn't love Robin Williams? Err, maybe I should rephrase that: who DIDNT love Williams in the mid 90s? Ahh, much better.
: This is one point I will not concede!
Oh, but concede you shall!
: In the marketing of JaSBSB, Kev is likely to use Ben and Matt cos they headlined 'Dogma'. Even though 'American Pie' faired considerably better at the Box Office than Dogma, he will not use Biggs as the selling point, 'cos no-one has a clue who this guy is. Maybe Shannon (Elizabeth, not Doherty), but certainly not Rock or Lee (even though they have been connected with some BIG names in the past).
I hardly think Kev is worried about which stars headline the ads for the movie. However, i doubt Affleck and Damon's names will pop up on the ad until close to the end. You know, starrinG Shannon Elizabeth, Jason Mewes, etc.... AND ben affleck!
: But, through a string of connections, Affleck and Damon are known. Sad as it is, and pains me as it does, Kev's new movie will probably be known as another Ben 'n' Matt flick!
Ben n MAtt flicks rock. But this aint one.
: Brian & Jeff are too unknown. Lee and Mewes too. Dwight Ewell is totally unknown outside Kev's circle. Even Sups and Mose. So it falls to the two 'stars' to carry it. God help us!!!!
I dont think Jason lee qualifies as an unkown anymore. More of an up-and-coming supporter.
: Another flaming session is in the pipeline no doubt, but these points have to be mentioned. So please, with all due restraint, flame away!!!!
: CAST (but far from an iron dipstick)
Far? By that do you mean, near?
