With so many bad movies coming out this summer, we were forced to do something we’ve never done before. Last Monday we went to see two bad movies in one night. There were six of us; all of the usual suspects were present. Our first movie was Transformers. This was truely a bad movie. It tried to do too much, what with the action, sci-fi, romance, campy-comedy. The bit I thought was done the best was when a Decepticon tore apart a military base. It was very well shot. Unfortunately it happened during the first 3 minutes of the movie. It was down hill from there.

We had things perfectly timed; we would leave Transformers and head right into Die Hard (after stopping to refuel). But the published run length for Transformers was off, and so we missed the start of Die Hard. So we switched to plan B and went to eat wings. It was a good night for wings. My trusty iPhone said that a single 100 wing order was more economical than $10.99 for all you can eat. as long as you didn’t think you would eat over 18.2 wings. We ended up eating exactly 18.2 wings each, and took the other 9 wings with us for later.

Before our wings came, the bartender came up to our table and asked if we wanted some free beer. Thinking at first that this was a retorical question, we were strangely quiet. She went on to explain that they were blah blah blah blah blah, but the upshot of it was that we got free beer. Life is good.

Die Hard was exactly what you would expect, so it was fabulously awesome. The best line was in the trailer, so you probably heard it:

Matt Farrell: You just killed a helicopter with a car!
John McClane: I was out of bullets.

100 hot juicy wings on the wall... 100 hot juicy wings...

    Since I was somewhat a fan of the cartoon, I actually liked the transformer movie.

      There were parts that just made me cringe. When the Autobots were trying to hide in the backyard? I don’t remember anything quite that dumb from the cartoon. Maybe I don’t remember the cartoon that well.

        Yeah, you are right. That scene was very stupid. The cartoon didn’t really have any humor to it, at least from what I can remember. At least the scene had that hot chick in it though.

    Did you count the wings to know that you got exactly 100?

      Well… no… but I can tell you that there were a lot of wings there. I’m sure they get this a lot, but I thought our waitress was really good at converting our request for more or less of certain flavors into something like an order.

    My next question would be:
    Brad, how bad was your indigestion after eating those?

      HYSTERICAL!! And I think it’s great that you & Lloyd have started sending in your movies to national talk shows for the whole country to enjoy!!

      (BTW: have you ever seen the bit Conan does where they pair up two celebrities & make a picture of what their offspring would look like? Also very funny!)
