Woody Harrelson was involved, say no more.
why? why JP? I was well on my way to going my entire life without setting an eyeball on that and you had to post frame grabs in one of the few places I was certain I would be safe. I thought I could trust you, I really did. Sigh.
that’s fuken classic. so gladd I haven’t seen the movie
JP, you know I’m now worried about your mental state. The NetFlix envelope leads me to believe you willing had someone send that to your house. And then you had the nerve—the nerve, I tell you!—to try and spread those celluloid kook germs to the rest of us via your blog. For shame!
Seriously, I know it’s cliche to say that you’ll never get that time back when you watch a horrible movie but this really is that type of movie. I was deeply saddened by the simple fact that I had been lured into watching this by someone that told me it was the worst movie they had ever seen. It’s really quite worse. I can’t even begin to explain how much of a waste this is….so I won’t.The only thing that I can take from it is the hope that peer pressure from the non-surfing world will presuade anyone that doesn’t surf to not take is up, lest they end up like the characters portrayed is this hideous example of entertainment.
If you haven’t seen it (and why would you) it’s a strange movie. I have a whole laundry list of complaints but there is no point in even going into them. The movie wants to be an existentialist journey of man with arrested development trying to decide if he should sell out or not (which is a moot point because in my opinion he was already a sell out). There is actually very little surfing in this movie as the main plot device is that the waves go completely flat for weeks and weeks. I did find the Making Of featurettes oddly compelling. Those guys worked really, really hard on this thing (which is crazy). I guess my main question is, who is this movie for? Not surfers because we reject even the best efforts, not mainstream America because it’s too odd, not the Indie art film crowd because it’s too clunky, and not the stoner crowd because it’s not funny. I think McConaughey just made this thing so he can chill out and watch it by himself.
The only movie I’ve ever seen get a literal zero (out of 100) on the review site Rotten Tomatoes…
I’m so happy this was made…it is a perfect example of the suffering and ass raping surfing has been objected to.The Sport of Kings…
That makes Point Break look like Citizen Kane.
When are you guys going to make the replica bonzer 9 fin?
Forget the 9 fin bonzer, where can I find a pair of those elastic waist trunks with stripes? I don’t really surf but I wanna get some chicks.
You could ask Greg Noll for a pair of his old trunks…
from what you’ve shown me..this looks to a good movie.can you enquire if Malcolm can shape me a “Bomber”?Thank you very much.!
