The wisdom of Wesley Snipes

CRACKED.com - The Wisdom of Wesley Snipes: 7 Quotes to Live By

Oh, you sad, doubting motherfuckers. Go to your Wesley shrine right now and pull out the Blade DVD. Turn on the commentary track and skip ahead to the climactic battle in the subterranean vampire city between Snipes and the evil mayor of vampires, Deacon Frost. There, in the commentary track, you will hear David Goyer state that the line, "Some motherfuckers are always trying to ice skate uphill" came from Snipes himself.

Oh, he didn't suggest it for the film. They overheard him use it in a motherfucking conversation.

The screenwriters were so overwhelmed with the line's mind-melting profundity that they shit where they stood, before rushing off to add it to the script. In the final version of the film, Snipes utters the line just moments before kicking a villain in a special way that causes the villain to explode. The fact that some motherfuckers are, in fact, always trying to ice skate uphill was the last piece of wisdom the antagonist carried into the afterlife (The writers don't mention if Snipes delivered an exploding kick to punctuate the real-world conversation they overheard, but their silence on the subject suggests he probably did.).

The 4400

I just finished watching the season finale of The 4400. And I'm just . . . wow. What an extraordinarily ballsy move. What a crazy, gutsy show. You probably don't watch it, so I'll break it down as quick as possible. Spoilers ahoy.

In the year 2003, a group of 4400 people appear in a ball of light in Seattle. They are abductees, stolen from the last eighty or so years. They were abducted by the future and experimented upon and returned. Why is the main question of season one, and Who? abducted them. At this point, the show is part police procedural and part x-files rip-off. The people who were abducted, see, they have returned with super-powers.

As the show goes on through the next few seasons it explores the social effects of superpowers, of destiny, of religious movements and of the military. This last season has explored the ramifications of power volunteering to take a shot that has a 50/50 chance of either killing you or granting you powers.

The show is not afraid to kill off characters. They are not afraid to change the status quo. In fact, roughly every four episodes everything changes.

Is it a great show? No. Is it sometimes awful? Yes. But sometimes--like in this finale--it can be sublime.

Review: Wild Zero

Chris’s Invincible Super-Blog � Blog Archive � Movie Review: Wild Zero

This is going straight onto my Netflix queue.

At its heart, Wild Zero is a movie about a young man learning about life and love, and how we all have the power within ourselves to overcome our hardships–wait… No, that’s not right at all. Hang on, I had my notes mixed up.

Okay, here we go: At its heart, Wild Zero is about blowing up zombies with the power of rock ‘n’ roll, and if that’s not one of the classic conflicts of literature already, it damn well should be.

I could pretty much stop there and give you my word that this movie is scientifically calibrated to blow your mind, and in fact, the IMDB listing under Plot Summary remains completely empty–an affliction shared, oddly enough, by Road House–but I’m going to make my best effort here.
