Agreed that Cook is an infected douche nozzle, but I still love Waiting. He was onscreen for what, ten minutes maybe? Other than him, the movie still makes me laugh. Oh my god, it's THE GOAT!!

Just about anything she has a role in, starring or minor. I don't know why I have such a strong dislike for her work. I can't explain it.

She was TERRIBLE IN Chicago and everything afterwards.
Oh, The Gift....
the real GIFT of that movie/dvd was getting to see Katie Holmes' PERFECT TITS!!!


You better have a copy of that movie, 'cause I doubt they'll ever be on screen again.

In the four movies that Rob has directed, and EVERY MOTHERFUCKING MOVIE he directs after that.

I think his movies are ass, save for My Best Friends Girl because the Jesus Crust part was hilarious. I'll admit it. I find most of his stand up to be funny. Especially when he talks about relationships.

Doesn't surprise me. Not one bit.

Me? I find him about as funny as Larry the Cable guy.

No. Wait. Larry made me laugh, once.

Mostly, I just want to punch his face in. Dane Cook, that is.

I don't find Larry the Cable Guy funny at all. So much for that. The funny thing is, Dane Cook could probably kick your ass. And then he'd tell a funny joke about it.

Seriously though, Dane Cook isn't always funny to me, I loved his first CD didn't care for Retaliation, and I liked ISolated INcident. I also like Dennis Leary, Chris Rock, Bill Hicks, Bill Cosby (Himself is a classic), Richard Pryor, George Carlin....So would you care to speculate further on what kind of comedy I like?

Didn't like Terminator 3, but might have liked it more if not for Clare Danes. I found myself shouting "shut the fuck up" every time she screeched.

Yeah, I'm talking about Katie "Stepford Wife Cruise" Holmes.
Not Rob Zombies naked blonde significant other.

Sharon Stone in Casino. I don't know that it was bad acting, maybe it was great acting but her character was one of the most repulsive things I have seen on screen. Maybe it would be misjudged acting? Regardless it was just spooky and ruined the rest of the movie.

Everyone but the National Guard guys and Amish dude in Diary of the Dead. Watching those extras where each actor had their separate video interview was embarrassing to watch.

If Romero had credible talent in front of the camera Diary would have worked. That whole thing hinged on the leads selling it. A typical run run die die movie they would have worked just fine.

I think the camera work was a tad to calculated as well. Especially for what he was going for.

I'll agree with you there. One of my biggest problems with the movie was how George had to keep coming up with different ways to change the perspective of the camera, having to have people suddenly give other characters the camera in order to get on, or that stupid crap about hacking the security cameras in the compound, or the footage in the mansion...ugh.

But everyone was pretty unlikeable, too. This is the first Romero movie where I disliked every character he presented.

That was my biggest problem with it. In every dead movie I can remember nearly all of the characters names, and what they did. I can't remember a single name of any the characters in Diary. And the actors are all film school rejects, the only characters who I gave two shits about were the amish dude, and the national guard folks. I so badly wanted to go with them when they showed up. I despised every single other character and wished them nothing but death and destruction.
