Lovely Bones, The (Blu-ray / DVD)

The Lovely Bones on Blu-ray and DVDReviewed by Uncle Creepy

Starring Mark Walhberg, Rachel Weisz, Saoirse Ronan, Susan Sarandon, Stanley Tucci

Directed by Peter Jackson

Distributed by Paramount Home Entertainment


Let me start off by saying that I have never read the best selling novel by Alice Sebold that this film is based upon so have nothing to compare this film version of The Lovely Bones to. As a result I’ll be reviewing this film only on its own merits. That being said … wow! What an incredible movie! Not perfect, mind you, but still pretty damned good.

The Lovely Bones is the story of fourteen-year-old Susie Salmon (Ronan), an everyday girl with a loving family who by all rights should have lived a very long and happy life. Unfortunately one of her neighbors, George Harvey (Tucci, who turns in a remarkably evil performance), has other plans. In Susie’s world George is the monster under the bed or in the closet. A person who kills females of any age with no remorse just for his own evil and sick satisfaction.

One day while following her home from school, George coaxes Susie into his underground lair by promising her that she’ll be the first one to try out his new and special place for the local kids to hang out. Of course once she’s there, things go horribly awry, and our little protagonist vanishes from the lives of everyone who loves her.

From there Susie finds herself in another world, a purgatory of sorts, where she befriends the equally as lost soul Holly (Nikki SooHoo), who tries to convince her that they both need to let go and move on. But Susie has other plans for the moment. Plans that involve putting a stop to the deadly menace lurking about her home who’s been casting more than just your average evil eye on her sister.

The Lovely Bones on Blu-ray and DVDThe Lovely Bones does a number of things right. The acting for the most part is as solid as it comes, the special effects are stunning, and the sound design, sets, and music are spot on for a film supposed to be taking place in the Seventies. It’s quite an illusion. Of special mention is Stanley Tucci’s portrayal of Harvey, which is one of the most brilliantly frightening performances of the year. Every second he’s on screen it’s as if all the air has been sucked out of the room you’re in. The words creepy and unnerving don’t even begin to convey the true sense of dread one feels while he’s around. And Sarandon as Susie’s grandma is a hoot, providing some much needed comic relief.

So what holds this flick back from being perfect, you ask? Two things: pacing issues and the really wooden performance of Nikki SooHoo as Susie’s spirit guide. Though she gets more right than she does wrong, SooHoo completely snaps you out of the film on several occasions due to her delivery of some pretty stilted dialogue. And here we thought Walhberg was going to be the problem. (Sorry, Mark, we still haven’t forgiven you for The Planet of the Apes!) There are scenes in the movie that go on for too long, and that makes The Lovely Bones feel much longer than it is. Thankfully these nagging trouble spots are on the infrequent side of the fence. Peter, we love you as a director, but not everything has to be so epic. We don’t need to learn every nuance of a character or see every detail in a scene. If this flick was about ten minutes shorter, it’d be pretty damned close to perfect.

If you’re wondering which package to get, DVD or Blu-ray, the answer is pretty simple — if you have the tech, Blu-ray is easily the way to go. In terms of picture quality I’ve yet to see anything else on Blu-ray as good as this. Paramount’s 1080p, 2.35:1-framed transfer is vibrant, sharp, and leaps off of the screen, and the DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack does nothing but complement this meaty sensory feast. Incredible stuff.

The Lovely Bones on Blu-ray and DVDNow for the truly bad part for DVD owners. In terms of special features you get nothing. Not a single solitary thing. I know. It sucks, especially because the Blu-ray is home to an entire extra disc’s worth of extras. Speaking of which …

Things kick off on the disc with a quick introduction by Jackson, and from there we’re treated to the nearly three-hour long feature Filming The Lovely Bones. Thankfully this mammoth sized extra is broken down into three parts — “USA Principal Photography”, which clocks in at around an hour and a half; “New Zealand Principal Photography”, which runs about an hour; and wrapping things up is a segment on the “Visual Effects Photography” that comes in at nearly half an hour. Jackson guides you through the lion’s share of the goodies here via voice-over narration, and thank god for that because honestly? The amount of stuff covered here on Disc 2 is overwhelming. If I attempted to walk you through all the goodies present and accounted for, I’d be sitting here for the better part of the day. This is far and away the most extensive look at the filmmaking process of a single feature I’ve ever seen. So much so in fact that anything else, even a commentary track, would come off as overkill. You will be floored, and if you’re a fan, this will be your rendition of what Heaven looks like.

Simply put, The Lovely Bones is nothing short of one of the absolute must-buy Blu-ray packages of the year. It’s both a technical achievement and one hell of a good time. Take the ride. Be intoxicated by its visual goodness and encyclopedic coverage. Do not miss this one.

    1. The Lovely Bones is on the best selling books of all time list with having sold 80 million or more copies which was surprising. I wonder how much of that was due to Oprah. The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit are right up there with the Bible and the Koran blowing away Gone With The Wind in case anyone was wondering.

    2. I liked this movie, though at first the ending had me mega pissed off. But after seeing it more then once I cant help but agree that its poetic in how it ended…

      Though I must say some of this movie was strange it was still very enjoyable.

      • But again, how is it poetic? I’m not antagonizing people for the hell of it, they just keep using words and can’t quite define them in context of the movie.

        How is the ending poetic?
        ———-
        “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

        • I’ll give you the best answer I can come up with why its poetic to me…

          Its not really about the family getting the justice, though that would have been a better ending…

          The ending for this was poetic because it was bitter sweet, the family may never have seen him brought to an actual justic and may never know what happened to him..

          But Suzie will, she got to see it happen, probably might have had something to do with it even, or atleast my guess..

          But either way she got her justice and can rest in full peace knowing he wont get anyone else like he got her, or the other girls..

          Thats how its poetic Justic, in my eyes anyway.

          • So, what you’re saying is that she never really gets over the pain and is only allowed to move on because she gets revenge? Doesn’t that defeat the whole purpose of the movie?

            • No, she moved on, I’m just saying for me, its nicer to think she might have had a hand in what happened thing it just being a freak accident

            • Saying “she might have” doesn’t mean she did. You’re just filling in the gaps the writers left. If you have to do the work for the writers than it’s a surefire sign of a bad movie. She didn’t have a hand in in the fate in the end because it was never hinted, explained, nor did they ever say it was Suzie, thus the whole “poetic” argument is null and void.

              Once again excusing a really bad movie.
              ———-
              “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

            • Some people don’t need everything in a movie explained to them with voice over narration or some other idiotic means. I’m guessing your favorite version of Blade Runner was the theatrical release.

            • I don’t need everything explained to me, and I don’t need to make stuff up to compensate for really bad writing in a really bad movie I’ve convinced myself is a masterpiece either. “Maybe she caused his death! Yeah she has super powers! So what if the writers didn’t tell us I decided it!” Yeah that makes perfect sense.

              Every argument for this movie is piss poor, sad to say.
              ———-
              “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

            • Maybe nobody feels like taking you by the hand and walking you through every scene in the movie. It’s all in there. I don’t know how many people need to explain it to you. Why don’t you just give up on this one.

            • Haha, you continue saying “it’s there” but you’ve yet to explain what “it” is nor can you give me a real argument to explain your argument. I’m not budging just because you have zero ammo. Just admit you’re defending an awful movie and I might give up.
              ———-
              “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

            • Terminal, I have to get your opinion on TRIANGLE man. I personally hated the ending because I feel they just left TOO MUCH hanging out there for one to just form their own opinion as to WTF they just watched, or what exactly the conclusion of the movie was/is. I was pissed. I truly was looking for more closure! Sometimes I don’t mind if that is done but point me in the direction of where my conclusions should head. I was just WTF at the end. I don’t know, I’m not a dumb guy but I was just lost on that bad boy.

            • Triangle confuses a lot of people. I have two theories about it and the ending. PM me and I’ll explain my own thoughts.
              ———-
              “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

            • You cant say I’m exscusing it because of the fact it was Peter whatever because to my knowing I’ve never seen a movie by him…

            • AngryChairr thanks for seeing the sheer lack of sense the whole “poetic” argument has. In the whole movie she’s told she has to move on and make peace or she can’t get in to heaven yet she’s allowed to have her revenge in the end? How does that even make sense?

              And how is it poetic?!
              ———-
              “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

      • Not at all. I’ve seen reviews with a lot more arguing and angry rants before. “The Final” review was much more volatile.
        ———-
        “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

    3. Ending aside, I did enjoy this movie. What really bothered moreso than anything anyone else mentioned was …

      ***SPOILER ALERT*** Read rest of comment at Own Risk

      how the fuck did Tucci’s character carry that safe up out of his basement when you see him and another strapping fellow struggling just to roll the damn thing on the ground. Especially considering how pressed for time he was. Even if he took the body out first, that safe looked to weigh a goodly amount. Any ways, yeah, the cgi was bad, but I thought Tucci’s and the lead girl’s performances were decent. Most everyone else in it was wooden though.

      • No disrespect intended toward you Kid A I’m just shocked that anyone would actually enjoy this tripe.

        ***SPOILER ALERT*** Read rest of comment at Own Risk

        The ending was particularly stupid not only because of the safe but because of the whole way he was found out. He is smart enough to evade police and kill little girls without ever being found out but he can’t secure his small window in the basement? You figure he’d have bars on them or something.

        Then her sister breaks in, finds the book under a conveniently loose floor board and he discovers she’s in the house because for some reason the floor board weighs a thousand pounds and makes a loud booming sound that makes him hear it from the basement because he’s apparently Superman or something.

        Dumb as fuck!
        ———-
        “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

        • Oh, you are right about some of that. Him evading the police, though, he had made a mistake there with her bracelet sitting out, so he certainly wasn’t perfect. And he had her body locked up in a safe with no other real incriminating evidence left out so I could see him thinking he was in the clear there. The floor board, though, was ridiculously stupid. He was halfway in the basement and she was on the 2nd floor. There was no way in hell he could hear that. She was even being extra quiet. So, yeah, that and the ending was ridiculous. It’s not Jackson’s best movie by any stretch, but I still found it enjoyable overall. I may be getting sentimental in my old age.

          • The floorboard creak was feasible to me because somebody who’s lived in a house for a while would know every little sound it makes. Plus, he knew someone else was there and he was at risk, so his senses were surely heightened.

            And I still found the ending very satisfying — different strokes I guess. As someone who’s learned that “closure” is nice in theory but rarely occurs in real life, the fact that justice was still served, even if all the parties involved may not have been aware of it, was satisfying and, yes, I’ll say it again … poetic.

            I’d love to hear from someone who has read the book as to how much was changed and if it ended the same way. Maybe reading it on the page is different from/better than seeing it acted out?

            • WIB, how was it feasible? Houses creak and moan all the time. He can’t be that smart enough to zero in on the floorboard like a bat or something. “A floor creak. That’s the center of my bed room on the third floor! The fourth plank to the left!” Come on, my grandparents house used to creak all the time and they lived there for twenty years, they didn’t know every freaking creak and where it came from. I don’t buy it.

              You’ve yet to explain how the ending is poetic, you just keep saying it’s poetic. How exactly? What’s poetic about it? That was not justice, that was a freak accident.

              And I think convenient, cheesy, clumsy, rushed, insulting, abrupt, stupid, lazy, moronic, mind numbing, and retarded, but not poetic when the ending is involved.
              ———-
              “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

            • Poetic justice: a literary device in which virtue is ultimately rewarded or vice punished by an ironic twist of fate intimately related to the character’s own conduct.

              **SPOILERS**

              His *conduct* put him in that place at that time to be startled enough by an icicle to fall to his death. Plus, didn’t we see icicles already in the film? To me, it was a full-circle moment.

              I really don’t feel I need to explain myself any further. Poetry, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. If you don’t think it applies here, you’re entitled to your opinion. In mine, it fits perfectly.

              As for the floorboard, yes, a bit of suspension of disbelief is called for. But considering that particular floorboard hid his most personal secrets, of course he’d “know” it was the one creaking.

              Again, you didn’t like the movie so of course you’re going to pick it apart. I did like it so can forgive a few little flaws here and there.

            • “I really don’t feel I need to explain myself any further. Poetry, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. If you don’t think it applies here, you’re entitled to your opinion. In mine, it fits perfectly.”

              Wow, so you defined poetic justice to me like a teacher in spite of the fact that you didn’t quite define why you thought it was poetic, and called it poetic not poetic justice, and STILL refuse to extrapolate on why you keep using the word “poetic” in such a loose manner on the grounds that you don’t feel the need to explain yourself obviously dodging your own point.

              That’s like me saying:

              “I’m the most amazing writer in the world.”
              “Why?”
              “I don’t know I’m just amazing.”
              “But why?”
              “I don’t have to explain myself to you, I just am amazing.”

              I honestly expected to be knocked on my ass with your defense. Oh well.

              And there is no proof his conduct put him in that accident. It’s never implied or hinted at or explained to us in full, so in the end it’s a cheap plot device, a freak accident, and a coincidence.
              ———-
              “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

            • It was totally his *conduct* that put him there. He was stalking his next victim, for christ’s sake!

              And sorry to disappoint you, but it’s not my nature to “defend” myself. I’m happy to state my piece and move on. Ongoing debates really aren’t my style.

            • So what? That doesn’t mean the icicle was some form of payback. Reaching a little bit, I have to say. And again: WHY is that poetic? Just curious.

              Hey I’m just trying to have a friendly dance with you, you keep slipping on the floor.
              ———-
              “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

            • Totally agree with everything WIB says as usual even when I refuse to admit I’m wrong.

            • Okay, so if you agree with everything she’s said, why do YOU think the ending is poetic?
              ———-
              “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

            • She took the words right out of my mouth. It’s as poetic as when EA releases the next Medal of Honor and it’s going to destroy Actvisions newest Call of Duty.

            • Wow, there’s a cop out if I’ve ever seen one. People REALLY gotta bring their game or stop playing altogether.
              ———-
              “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

            • I knew you were going to say that and already prepared a statement.

              WIB put it as simply, plainly and eloquently as anyone could have. She even gave you the definition of poetic justice which really should have been enough. I could understand if you still disagreed but you’re not even comprehending or trying to look at it from her perspective which OK I am guilty of at times but come on you’re being stubborn. Sometimes it seems like you fast forward through movies and don’t ever bother reading anything before you comment.

          • The bracelet aspect was put there to create obligatory tension not to add to any of his characterization. One minute he’s building an underground bunker to trap his victims and no one notices, but he’s too stupid to hide a charm from the police?

            I wouldn’t say people are getting sentimental, just forgiving. People seem to be giving Jackson a free pass here. The movie is a misstep on all fronts and people don’t even seem to care all that much. Even people who admit the movie is just plain stupid still like it on the basis that it’s Peter Jackson.
            ———-
            “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

            • Again, I’d love to hear from someone who has read the book. How much was Jackson’s input, and how much was there already? Believe me, aside from my love for the LOTR films (and to some extent King Kong), I don’t hold Jackson in any higher regard than any other director and am not giving the film a “pass” based on his involvement but rather the emotional journey it took me on independent of who was behind the camera.

      • The safe was the only thing I had a problem with. Everything else, including the ending, was plausible to me and believe me I questioned alot of it but always came up with reasonable answers. I thought the CGI was fine. I’ve seen the Underworld movies and I know bad CGI when I see it. I’m curious how much of WETA’s time was devoted to Avatar and if it took away from PJ’s own movie at all because The Lord of the Rings and King Kong were more impressive animation-wise. I didn’t pick up the Blu-ray yet because Avatar was the priority but I’m gonna rent it just to watch this epic making of feature that Creepy talks about although I don’t know if it’s THE most comprehensive yet because the friggen Gladiator making of seemed like it was about 5 hours long with a good 45 minutes to an hour devoted to the script alone which I’ve never seen before or since.

        • There were so many plot holes and gaps in logic, I’m almost convinced you questioned it like a five year old questions why the sky is blue.

          “Why is the sky blue?”
          “It just is. Eat your ice cream.”
          “Okay.”

          Peter Jackson directing this is like Kevin Smith directing a romantic comedy with Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, or Sam Raimi doing a bad superhero movie.

          Oh wait… that all happened.

          Man, directors are selling out by the dozens.
          ———-
          “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

          • It seemed disjointed to me but more because he might have had to cut alot out then because of bad direction. If you want to pick a movie apart plot-wise let’s discuss Laid To Rest or something.

    4. Dare I watch another Peter Jackson movie? King Kong was 17 or so hours out of my life… wasn’t that the running time?

      Jackson suffers from Kingitis, it’s a disease that strikes horror writers and directors who achieve mainstream success. Suddenly everything is 50% longer than it should be.

      • King Kong is amazing. Especially the extended cut. It’s my favorite version by far. PJ had even gotten Fay Wray do agree to do a cameo but she passed away before he could film her. He was all choked up about it. That’s love of the original. Actually if you watch the original and PJ’s version back to back you’d probably be amazed at how much of it he put in there. As epic a monster movie as there probably ever will be. Unless he decides to do another one. Maybe Godzilla next time.

      • “King Kong” was mediocre at best with the various mind numbing moments ruining the experience. Why he thought the homo erotic sub-plot between the captain and his first mate would be interesting is beyond me. And man was it long as piss. And I watched “Giant” without difficulty!

        I’ll take the original any day of the week.

    5. Saw it last night and I’m still on the fence weither I like it or not. I will have to view it a second time.

      ***SPOILER ALERT*** Read comment at own Risk

      One thing that bugged the crap out of my is the ZERO payback at the end. You have the girls whole family obsessing over finding her killer and bringing him justice and then when the truth comes to the table everyones kind of stops giving a shit (including the cops) and without a care in the world he skips town. That pissed me off.

      • Shark Alarm! Shark Alarm!

        First, You think living the rest of your life as a fugitive is something to look forward to? Second, he fucking died horribly. How was there no payback?

          • I don’t know much about what it takes for a fugitive from justice to survive but he had to leave everything and run. His life was built on routine and privacy which he would never have again. Maybe it would have been easier to survive in the 70’s like that but his life was shattered. Besides it’s all moot ’cause he died like that night a horrible death. Looked pretty painful to me and who knows maybe he wasn’t dead on impact but wound up lying there and starved to death or something.

      • ***SPOILER ALERT*** Read comment at own Risk

        Yeah that was so stupid! It was like the obligatory happy ending in “Radio Flyer.”

        Oh people might be mad he got away, so let’s have an icicle kill him! Yeah that’s believable. What a fucking stupid way to kill this character off and end the movie. Crap ass movie. I would throw it away but it came with “Up in the Air,” so it’s there… festering on my shelf.

        ———-
        “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

    6. I never really had any determination to make sure I saw this. Now, I have even less. I believe this just got downgraded to a “if I happen to catch it on cable and no I don’t mean pay to order it movie” movie.

    7. Oh man this movie was god awful. Tonally uneven, poorly acted, horrifically written, terribly edited, really bad CGI, brain dead symbolism, irritating cliches, an obnoxious climax, ends the fate of our villain in such an insulting to our intelligence manner, and completely avoids any and all impact on the viewers to keep its PG-13 rating in tact.

      “Yeah you were brutally raped, badly murdered, stuffed in a safe, dumped down a ditch, your murderer got away, but you can’t be mad or you won’t get in to heaven like the rest of us!”

      Ugh.

      It’s hard to believe this is from a man who once made a movie about cursing and fucking puppets. What happened to you Peter Jackson, seriously?
      ———-
      “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

      • I couldn’t disagree more. I wasn’t insulted at all by the ending and Harvey’s fate but thought it was beautifully poetic. I loved the idea of letting go of the pain and moving on. But then again, you’ve said many times how much you like revenge flicks whereas they’re way down on my list so it figures we’d have vastly different opinions of a movie like this.

        But mostly, since you said the acting was poor, did you really think Tucci was no good? Having just seen Julie & Julia the day before watching this, I was amazed by the transformation and could hardly believe it was really him.

        • **SPOILER ALERT*** Read comment at own risk.

          So you thought that a man who managed to evade police for years who is conveniently hit by an icicle that conveniently knocks him back off of a convenient ledge to fall to his death never to be found again is poetic? Seriously? I see it as a quasi-happy ending to appease the viewer and keep their bubble in tact. I saw rushed and hackneyed not poetic.

          I mean there’s nothing poetic about this movie. She’s angry about her death, everyone is angry about her death, a ghost comes to show her the anguish, then tells her she has to let go or she can’t go to heaven, and then out of the blue they show us that these girls were his victims who were never found again and somehow we’re supposed to let that go?

          Tonally uneven and contradictory down to the last second.

          And come on, her killer is a few feet away about to get away, she has one last chance to come to Earth and she uses that time to snog a boy she liked instead of pointing him out?! Come on.

          Tucci was okay, honestly. But he suffered from the crap movie that took place here.

            • Well you still can, but be prepared for the most frustrating and hilarious two hours of your life, my friend.

            • Hmmmmmm. I didn’t see that spoiler alert thingy up there a few minutes ago when I READ YOUR WHOLE COMMENT. LOL, hahahahahahahaha.

            • I’ll be more cautious next time, my mistake.

            • That’s because I edited his comment once I realized it essentially gave away the ending of the flick.

            • Thanks Creepy. Sorry again.

            • The ending? I thought I accidentally read the “cliff notes” on the whole movie. Hahahaha, no biggie. I could have stopped reading.

            • I really liked this movie. Terminal is a cyborg and has no capacity for human emotions. He’s no Nexus 6.

            • Maybe but I have good taste, so there’s that. “The Lovely Bones” = Best comedy of 2009.

            • The idea that you have good taste is subjective. You go on and on about young actresses who can’t act for shit. You’re too shallow to understand emotional movies.

            • The idea I have good taste is proven fact when you’re defending the Lovely Bones and King Kong.

              “You’re too shallow to understand emotional movies.”

              Dude, you are so melodramatic it’s not even funny. It looks like that came out of a soap opera. What do you expect me to run off crying or slap you in the face? HAHA!

              “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

            • No, not at all you have no feelings. I’ve been reading your comments about movies for a while now and whenever any movies need to be connected with on an emotional level you just don’t seem to get it. An observation. Granted I feel emotions much more than an average person so I understand that movies might not have such an impact on others as they do me.

            • And the funniest fucking post of the day goes to Floydian Trip! Give him a hand folks, isn’t he a funny guy?! Damn dude, I have to send you a certificate or something.

              “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

            • YES! Everything is indeed back to normal. And to think you guys almost hugged it out earlier. Whew! I like what I see. Oh, sorry, don’t let me interrupt…..as you were
              (Big smile)

            • FireRam if you weren’t so funny I’d hate you. But you make me laugh my ass off everyday, so you’re in my cool book.

              “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

            • Daaaaaaaaaaamn. Don’t know what I have done to receive any “hate” like, ever.
              But, I am just a sarcastic prick so…….cool!!! LOL

              I think I might take my ball and go home now.

            • Not hate as in despise, hate as in jealous. You’re hilarious dude. Hilarious.

            • UM, I know what ya meant:

              sar·casm   /ˈsɑrkæzəm/ Show Spelled[sahr-kaz-uhm] Show IPA
              –noun
              1. harsh or bitter derision or irony.
              2. a sharply ironical taunt; sneering or cutting remark: a review full of sarcasms.

            • So that’s what people mean when they say I’m too sarcastic!
              ———-
              “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

            • YES! But, one can never be too sarcastic. Skillfully played sarcasm is a gift.
              Now, a weekend or two ago I met with a word I have not heard in awhile. My friend and I were at a bar and I was talking to the waitress (who I have seen a few times). I flirted and was talking about hanging out. She said “I don’t know I think you’re a little too rambunctious”. I’m like huh, me? (innocent crafty smile in place) I said ok. Is that a good thing or a bad thing with you. Then this BIG smile came across her face. She wouldn’t comment. When she left my friend goes “Dude, did you see that? You are SO in”.

            • Dude you are so going to get laid.
              ———-
              “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

            • That’s what Rob (my buddy) said. That smile and the little twinkle in her eye spoke volumes!!!!!She said we’ll definitely hang out one night so we’ll see.

            • So get her phone number. Why wait? Set up a date, do her and report back to the DC readers.

              Whoa, maybe I need to get out more.

          • I haven’t seen this death myself, but going by your description, that doesn’t sound too far-fetched at all. Just watch 1,000 Ways to Die on Spike. That show will convince any skeptic that fate exists. Fate is a crazy motherfucker.

            • And judging by “The Lovely Bones” fate is a stupid mentally disabled motherfucker used as a cheap ass plot device from creatively impotent writers.
