Drinking and Gambling Make Men Out of Boys (FUP Quotes)

5 Pull quotes from the novella FUP by Jim Dodge

The focus of these quotes how I feel FUP, sums up what it is to be a man by the main character of 100 year old Grandpa Jake and his Grandson Tiny:

First quote defines the coloful language and character of who, Grandpa Jake, sees himself fit to take care of the young orphaned grandchild Tiny.



Grandpa Jake and Fup’s taste in movies. The writer, Jim Dodge, illustrates these passage on the dark humor to Jake’s taste towards storytelling.



The old school idea men and their feelings how an older generation like Grandpa Jake sees them as something that you develop over time and don’t show too much of emotion.

Again, the writer Jim Dodge’s colorful description of a hard earned and working man like Grandpa Jake from what he looks to us as the reads and what he sees as himself.


Over all story is one of questions the story ask of the reader is how the views of death. Grandpa Jake feels as he becomes older sense of spiritual connection to death, example of his dead friend Johnny Seven Moons being reincarnated as the wild boar Lockjaw, while Tiny, as the young man,views death in a matter of fact. The example of his mother’s death drowning in the lake.

They're Back, THE HANGOVER: PART 2 Teaser Trailer


As we've seen and heard from all the rumors in cast changes, bizarre photo shoots, and possible cameos. The Wolf Pack is back in The Hangover: Part 2.

Not much to really say in the sense of what the hell happened again. But its worth checking out the dynamic comedic tripod as they are now joined by siamang monkey and a face tattoo that only Mike T. could love in Thailand. As things look to get dirtier, grittier, and balls out crazier for the gang, this summer.

ROBOCOP FINALLY GETS DETROIT'S RESPECT



Listen up all you Splatter Punks!

After cleaning up the streets of 'near' future Detroit for 3 movies, a TV series, a Saturday Morning cartoon, possible reboots, and endless graphic novel spin offs. Officer Alex "Robocop" Murphy will be honored with a 7 Foot iron cast statue by Casey V. Westbrook and company to be placed in Motor City.

Thanks to a huge donation by Peter Hottlete of Omni Consumers Products Corporations (yes! they do exist) and 1700 other anonymous donors were able to make the 50,000 dollar goal, a reality this past week

All of this wouldn't of been possible to honor the real steel officer, if Dave Bing, Detroit's current major didn't harshly dismiss a twitter comment on a possible statue. The city politics of Detroit are always attacking Murphy and his system of future justice but now the people have spoken.

You hear that Mister Mayor, you can now call him "ROBOCOP."

Now give this man, the key to the city.

LET BANKSY BRING THE MONKEY MASKs




With EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP, a front runner for Best Documentary at OSCARS '11, the elusive and madly brilliant guerrilla artist Banksy wants to take the sluggish awards ceremony by storm.

But that golden plated old man doesn't want any of those whipper snapper shenanigans at this year's ceremony. As the plan originally was, if Exit wins the Oscar, 5 people wearing the Banksy signature monkey mask a la V for Vendetta, would approach the stage asking for the award.

Rumor tag-line would be, "Giving me that motherfucking Oscar."

The award ceremony coordinators will not let this happen due their fear of infamous "gatecrashers" or fellow Movie Hoppers like yours truly- I promise most of us who are coordinated enough to break into coveted Oscars are harmless and we're only there to show that shouldn't be a praise of bourgeois material like The King Speech.

Like the Defacto South of the past, the awards ceremony are afraid of change or somebody fucking with system but if they keep being resistant to ideas like Banksy, they'll just keep getting lower ratings and weak ass hosts. (No disrespect to this year's host Franco and Hathaway but they are no Billy Crystal.)

But on a Banksy note, this could be all hype for something quite extraordinary in taking down the red carpet this year. Just wait and see what the attack artist will bring this Sunday, if anything.

SHANE Mother F@!KIN' BLACK Directing "Iron Man 3"















Looks like Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh are back in Lethal Weapon 5--but it looks like Mel "SS Officer" Gibson and Danny "Stop that Cab" Glover are now really too old for this shit. So they've hired Robert Downey Jr as crazy but lovable Riggs and Don Cheadle as the curmudgeon but commendable Murtaugh, to get the black and white buddy action comedy job done. I wonder if Joe Pesci will show up as wisecracking gangster Leo Getz again?

Oh wait, Shane Black has been hired to direct, Iron Man 3 with Downey Jr and Cheadle. As much as I praise the action comedy veins that pulsate in Black's veins. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is one of the best buddy action comedies ever made. This will be interesting as it will be his first big budget helmer, 2nd directional job, doesn't have Joel Silver as a producer, a superhero movie, and the first franchise to be coming into the job- Black wrote only the first two Weapon scripts and rest of his career has been based off of original and highly lucrative screenplays.

Also I don't know what to think of a Shane Black movie without cynical bloody violence, four letter words, and the occasional boob or sexy sex scene. :( As this will be the first PG-13 movie for Black since The Monster Squad (1987)
