*how* nearly naked?

I'll go out on a limb here and say this movie will bomb.

I see what you did there.

In the movie, Cusack plays a hit man hired by Tamerlane to assassinate a Middle Eastern oil minister who plans to lay an oil pipeline through Turaqistan, thwarting the company's plan for sole proprietorship of the country.

He'd better damn well be playing Martin Blank.

Anti-war? Not offensive. Dancing amputees? Not offensive. Expecting me to pay to see Hillary Duff? Now, THAT crosses the line, pal.

As I said the last time the story went green: it's a shame that Duff is involved, as I am a big fan of both Cusack and Kinglsey. Since every time I see Marisa Tomei my mind escapes into a fantasy world where she is my sex-starved wife, and cruel reality returns only when she leaves the screen, I have no idea if she can act or not.

I am sooo looking forward to this movie

M*A*S*H was amazing, but comparing Cusack to Altman is quite a stretch.

This is going to be nothing more than Sunday morning jerking off material for me.
 
2008-05-02 09:14:34 PM
I'm a fan of method acting, so if Hillary Duff wants to amputate a limb or two I'll be watching..That being said, does anyone know of a good site for amputee porn?
/FTW!

Hollywood is making an anti-war film?!? Why didn't they think of this before?
 
2008-05-02 09:15:06 PM
Cusack?... yes, I liked his work in "Sixteen Candles"
 
2008-05-02 09:15:45 PM
If I wanted to watch a movie about amputees I'd watch Link (new window)

I didn't know John Cusack had an interest in the straight-to-video-bargain-bin market.

This will surely insult America's higher-profile assassins employed in the middle eas...wait, we aren't employing assassins in the middle east? No wonder it's not working.

/The first anti-war movie may have been legitimate and thought provoking. This is the movie equivalent of the Yale abortion girl.

Anagrammer: I didn't know John Cusack had an interest in the straight-to-video-bargain-bin market.

I had tickets to an advance screening of this a couple weeks ago. I went to a special screening of Spike Lee's new WWII movie instead. But this shouldn't really be considered "Hollywood" and it won't be straight-to-video; it just won't show in theaters where you are, mostlikely.

Someone mentioned she puts a scorpion in her pants and grinds it against her coont. Could be worth seeing for that alone.

I once had sex with a girl who was amputated mid-forearm on her left side. When she was a young child, she was reaching outside of an open car door when another car backed into the door, crushing her arm. As much as I'd like to say that she made up for her handicap by being really wild in bed, sadly, she was no better than average.

This really has no direct relation to the topic of the article, but when I read the headline, she's the first person I thought of.

John CUsack in a movie offends me...It coul dhe his oddly twitchy sister though.

Now wait just a second! Marisa Tomei is your wife, and she's sex-starved??? How could you ever allow such a thing to happen? Who have you been banging in your other fantasies that you haven't been making enough time for Marisa?

Not to be offensive, (er, no pun) but why is "average" considered awful in terms of looks and farking? A '7' is average (well, in really any rating system), that doesn't make sense. If everyone is 'great' in the sack except for those few that are 'average...' isn't great average?

/'Great' would be a stump in my ass. Otherwise, you're average.

I'm feeling on top right now. I have nothing to contribute to the discussion about Cusack. I just want it to be known that I'm feeling better than anyone else on this thread.
 
2008-05-02 09:25:48 PM
I'm a Cusack fan, so I expect a well-done movie. Anti-war anything has it's potential for backlash, but with Kingsley and Tomei on board, as well as Cusack, it's not likely to suck.

Hillary Duff, though, is a head-scratcher. Perhaps she noticed Mandy Moore picking up similar roles?

I kid. It's about black soldiers in Italy. It's called The Miracle at Santa Anna. It'll be out in October, and it was great until the last 2 minutes.

Okay, I totally retract my snark about the legitimacy of this movie's criticism.

This is what America needs to see. Open your eyes people, and think of Bush. And sand.

FTFA: "Sometimes with a serious, somber movie, even though they're great and well intentioned, it just doesn't allow you to be outraged because you just get depressed," he said. "This allows you to actually feel like, 'Let's do something subversive."'

Do you *really* believe that there's some stored up conflict that exists between us? There *is* no us. *We* don't exist. So who do you wanna hit, man? It's not me. Now whaddya wanna do here, man?

I know actors are not the best champions of our freedoms, but when republics fail, you have to take what you can get.

We can only hope this movie is worth the price of the ticket, unlike his SPECTAKULER bomb '1408'.

I still want that 2 hrs of my life back, John.

She wasn't awful, she was just average. Awful = just lying there quietly while the man does all the work. Average = shows that she enjoys it, likes to have it gently and not too vigorous. Great = No holes barred, will gladly rim or be rimmed, lots of dirty talk, likes to have hair pulled.

She was a nice girl. Her stump was too big to fit in my ass.
