Spartan/Kristen Bell

I picked up a bootleg copy of Spartan on DVD for 4 bucks last night. Been meaning to get it for quite a while now but i wasn’t about to spend 24 bucks on it back at Best Buy. Especially when its as bare bones as it gets. Only a commentary track and some trailers? Not worth it. Maybe for 15, but not 24.

Anyhow, i really like the movie. Heard some good things about it and i wasn’t disappointed. I was a little intimidated by it going in, since i’ve never really seen any of David Mamet’s work (and i hear he has a style that you either love or hate). I’ve also heard some people complaining about how they didn’t understand what the hell was going in this movie. Well, those people are probably stupid because i had no problems at all following the vague, yet still very understandable unless you’re a complete moron, storyline.

I say vague because there’s very little expositional dialogue in this flick. It just throws you in heat of things and leaves it up to you to catch up and figure out what’s going on. No spoonfeeding the plot for you in this movie. Unless of course you’ve read a synopsis beforehand. Which i did not.

Val Kilmer is pretty badass in the movie. Reminds me a lot of Jack Bauer. In fact the whole movie kinda reminds of 24. Which is a good thing. I’d love to see a sequel to Spartan but that’s probably never gonna happen. It is a David Mamet flick after all. And how many David Mamet movie sequels have there been? Precisely.

Kristen Bell is in the movie. Playing a whore no less. She gets topless in one scene but you only get to see her from the back. Although there is this other scene, where if you freeze frame it at the right moment, you get to see a nipple! Bonanza!

Kristen Bell is cute. I’d put her right next to Alison Lohman in terms of hotness.

Chop off the top half of her head and i can swear i see Avril Lavigne smiling.

  3. Veronica Mars is a great show. The last two episodes had some great Holy Fuck moments.

  4. I agree that Veronica Mars is a great show, although the end of the first season, after she’s solved the mystery of who killed her friend, was a little cheesy. Up until that point the show was great, and the pilot was one of the best I’ve seen. Kristen Bell does not look anywhere close to 24 years old, maybe more like 19/20. We need more actresses that look younger than they are, that way you don’t feel guilty thinking dirty things about them.

  5. Yeah too bad you see her boob when Val Kilmer punches her in the stomach, not in a sex scene or anything.

  6. I don’t have any problem with that at all. A tit is a tit even it’s bloody or covered in shit. 😮

  13. You love David Mamet? You love David Mamet?

    … Okay, actually, that’s really funny to people who know Mamet’s work and makes absolutely no sense to people who don’t.
