Cutthroat Island - DVD podBLAST

Dear BLASTphemers,

There is a heatwave in Los Angeles, and it's taking its toll on the BLASTers. PB4: Melted. Just melted. Walsho: Back on the sauce. DTM.C: Beaten down. Steve: Snakes-On-A-Plane crazy. William: Kind of cheerful, actually.

And yet we press on. This week, we take on Renny Harlin and Cutthroat Island. This 1995 coma-inducer stars Geena Davis as a sunburned American pirate who teams up with Matthew Modine's Errol Flynn to search for a pot o' gold weighing somewhere between three and five tons. Along the way, they find wonderful, boring love.

See? Now you're just being a smart-aleck. There's no chance that you like Cutthroat Island. It's the biggest flop in movie history.

Seriously. It's been looked up.

This BLAST shall not be blasted!!!

Tubitron, what do you think?

Awesome. I hope either:

A. This list is totally fake


B. A computer compiled it.

Cause otherwise, that's A LOT of work!

I acually went to the cinema to see Cutthroat Islans back in 96 for my 10th birthday.

Also CI was the first game I ever bought for my gamboy.

I loved the film then and I still love it now!

Mike Walsh you just been blasted!

OK, so first of all, I dusted off my old math notebook and determined that you were born in 1986.

Based on this, I have further determined that by the time you were born, all three original Star Wars movies had been released.

It logically follows that if you had been around to experience those first hand, your attitude on "CI" would be much different.

This is an immutable fact. I have applied for a patent for the research and logic used for this determination. Anyone who copies it will owe me a million zillion dollars.

It counts 60%. The re-releases were Jar-Jar-ified.

Holy shiiite directorscut, that was awesome. Samuel leads the Cack Pack, eh? No surprise there. You do 15 movies a year, you going to get a stinker now and then.

I wanted to slam my head through a window on this one. Could Matthew Modine have played a bigger wussy? Spongebob would have been more macho.

Cutthroat Island SUCKED!
