Commit, Rollback, Jackass

Yesterday i’ve seen “The Commitments” and “Jackass: The Movie” on TV.

I won’t review either, ‘cuz i don’t have anything new to say that hasn’t already been said. “The Commitments” has these beautiful lines, when Rabbitte goes into a tower block where a kid is waiting at the lift with a horse:

Rabbitte: “You’re not bringing that horse in the lift”
Kid: “He won’t fit up the stairs”

I didn’t remember the exact phrasing, so i googled for “commitments movie script”, but didn’t find it. So i tried “Commitments horse lift stairs” and bingo.

Jackass is American in a very scary way. Considering that the USA strive to conquer the world overtly and covertly, i’m asking myself — is that the world i want my children to live in, a world of machos that are so bored they are destroying and humiliating themselves? I grok freedom of speech and i admit to laughing out loud for the duration of the whole movie, but enough is enough. If you shoot yourself with so-called “less lethal” riot ammo out of boredom today, someday you’ll shoot yourself with live bullets.
