Nazis, Slutty Vampires, Fat Guy in a Fat Suit


Valkyrie starring Tom Cruise. This has a neat cast with Terence Stamp, Tom Wilkinson, Bill Nighy, Kenneth Branagh. I'll try to watch this one.

Paul Blart Mall Cop starring Kevin James. Self-important shopping mall security guard has to rescue hostages in a mall.

We had our van battery go dead at Madison's East Towne Mall a couple years ago. The security guard came by with a jump start battery kit. I had to fill out a long release form and show my driver's license just to get the freaking jump start done. The 20-year-old mall guard's body resembled the Michelin Man's. But, with a tighter belt, a puffy looking blue uniform, and dark sunglasses. After getting the van started, this twit of a guard handed me a toy badge for Boy Number One. He handed the badge over as if it were a magnanimous gesture from a solid and brave public servant. His self esteem was misplaced.

True Blood: the complete first season starring [people]. Girl who can read minds cannot read a vampire's mind. Other vampires have sex.
