Can’t we all just get along?

Damn you Blockbuster!!

Damn you Blockbuster!!

So, I was going to watch Superman Returns tonight.  Unfortunately, I opened my envelope to find Superman: The Movie.  No big deal in general…I had Smokin’ Aces, and Burn After Reading that both came in today also.  Little did I know that I was about to finish up the most violent 7 days of movie watching that I’ve ever endured.

Without ruining movies that some of you haven’t seen before…I thought that I’d just put up the box art of the movies that I’ve watched in the last 7 days.  I’m also putting up descriptions of some of the violent scenes in the movies so that you can match them up.  (Sorry folks: “Shot in the head at close range” would have still left you with 3 or 4 movies.  We’ll have to be a little more original than that.)

The Kintzel 2009 Violence Challenge

  1. Man has a night-stick shoved down his throat while he’s being tortured (by the police) in a bathtub
  2. Man uses a pneumatic tank & slug on people’s heads instead of using a gun
  3. 5-year-old girl rips her mother’s neck open and mauls her
  4. Man chews off his fingerprints so he can’t be identified
  5. Man receives blows to the head from a hatchet in the street by a man in his bathrobe
  6. Man has a human hand in a ziploc bag at a table during a conversation
  7. Man awakes in a hospital and begins to pull his (dead) friends bone fragments from under his skin

Answers (Don’t peek!)

  1. Pride & Glory
  2. No Country for Old Men
  3. Quarantine
  4. Smokin’ Aces
  5. Burn After Reading
  6. The Departed
  7. Body of Lies

So, if you got them all right you win the same thing that I do:

The "bad" guy

The "bad" guy

Time to watch some Spongebob…you know, where Plankton is the “bad” guy because he wants to steal the Krabby Patty.  Not because he want’s to kill Mr. Krabs, have his way with Pearl (Krabs’ daughter), and then burn SpongeBob and Patrick alive (do to their “non-traditional” lifestyle).

…Let’s hope Blockbuster gets Superman right this time.
