bubba ho-tep

before the weekend's drama began, we finally got around to watching bubba ho-tep. what a great movie. what a fantastic screenplay...

here's the gist of the story, elvis isn't dead. he's living in a crappy ass rest home in east texas. he switched places with the greatest elvis impersonator... sebastian haff. sebastian dies and everyone thinks elvis died.

a mummy from an egyptian museum tour gets stolen. the mummy's been living off of old people's souls for who knows how long. easy pickin's.

elvis and his friend jack (a black man who believes he's john f. kennedy) work together to fight off the mummy. mummy bites the dust. thanks, elvis!

i thought bruce campbell did a great job as the king.

sounds crazy, but it was seriously laugh out loud funny... not in a slapstick comedy way... but, yeah, never mind. watch it, if you haven't watched it.

Bruce Campbell really did do an awesome impersonation in that movie. I thought it was pretty good, but not great. But now it's one of those movies that I think about all the time.

I'll have to check that out. As for the excel thing. I heard that. When I was working in our telemarketing office, they would have me get off the phones so I could make a spread for this or that. I think they kept from transferring me out, because I was so good at it. But 2 1/2 years later, here I am in Dallas thanks to my spread sheet skills.

Bubba Ho-Tep is great fun. It's proof positive that the B-movie spirit is alive and well. It's actually getting a limited release in Britain, so I'll be reviewing it in due course!

Being a Bruce Campbell and Army of Darkness fan, I have been wanting to check this movie out. However, I am currently hiding out from Blockbuster as I owe money. The worse part is, it was for 13 Going on 30 and I am embarassed to go in and pay for such a stupid movie!
