10 Worst Movies to Watch – if You Want a Productive Day

Posted in Movies with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 18, 2011 by kc2

For every uplifting movie that inspires you to get out of the house, start working out, figure out decoding, eat better, and do math problems that equal 23…there’s those movies that un-inspire. The ones that drain you, or just make your laziness kick into high gear – I wouldn’t suggest watching these if you need to get shit done.

10. 300 – This isn’t about the idea of battle against an enemy, overcoming odds, or defending your home. This is about getting those abs. You watch it the first time and think, “Damn, I need to workout more.” Then you realize your stomach will never look like that. Even worse when you find out that theirs didn’t either…

9. Pirates of the Caribbean – This goes for pretty much any franchise (Star Wars would fit here too) that cable stations love to play back-to-back-to-back. You sit down, flip on the tv for just something in the background while you work on curing cancer…and 6 and a half hours later, you’re making popcorn during the commercial break of the 3rd installment. Just ask Michael Bolton, its hard to think of anything else.

8. Meet Joe Black – Not that there’s anything wrong with this movie…its just so damn long! Try watching this, or something like Avatar, and your afternoon is gone.

7. Pineapple Express – Insert basically any “stoner comedy” here. There’s things about weed that can help you write, play music, and be creative. But, there’s also that side of weed that makes you sit on the couch doing absolutely nothing productive.

6. Big – Forget that Wilma Flintstone has sex with a minor, technically. How many of us watched this as a kid and wanted the job where you play with toys all day? The job you’re doing doesn’t look so fun to do right now does it?

5. The Road – For as happy and fun as the last two categories were…this one is all about depression. Children of Men would have the same effect. You see a world that is so damn bleak – then sit back and look at what you need to do like what’s the point?

4. The Big Lebowski – This one is really centered on the character “the Dude”. Just wanting to be that cool as shit guy that sits around in his robe, and the most you get done in the day is a good afternoon at the bowling alley.

3. The Matrix – This fits under multiple categories. It has the sequels that FX and TBS will keep playing all weekend on repeat. But, then it also gets in your head. If you’re looking for any excuse not to do that TPS report…you’ll start believing this isn’t the ‘real world’. Where is my red pill?

2. Office Space – If you’ve ever worked (or are working) a dead-end job, watch this movie. It so perfectly illustrates the problems with working in a corporate world. All the characters who actually do their work and really try at their jobs get screwed over, the guy that decides to play Tetris gets a promotion. And, the guy that commits arson gets a vacation. Fuckin’ A.

1. Fight Club – All those problems with #2…this is the movie that attacks them. All I have to do is quote this movie and the things around you will look a lot less important…

“This is your life and it’s ending one minute at a time.”
“Listen to me! You have to consider the possibility that God does not like you, never wanted you, and in all probability, he HATES you. It’s not the worst thing that can happen.”
“We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won’t. And we’re slowly learning that fact.”

The Coolest Guy Freddie Krueger ever Killed

Johnny Depp. Seriously, it’s not even fair. “Oh hey, I’m gonna move out to LA and be a rockstar, nah…that didn’t work out, lets try out acting. Sure I can handle death by nightmare. Then I’m gonna be on a TV show I hate…but I’m really looking forward to picking up some scissors. Hey Winona, wanna get married? Just kidding! I’ll give Leonardo a few acting lessons next. Become a tripped out bald guy, do some “hellish” movies, introduce the US to coke, then impersonate Keith Richards…yeah, that’s right…Sexiest Man Alive! I’m gonna have my eyes ripped out and still kick ass. Then take Willy Wonka to a different level…sing in an unfortunate Tim Buron movie…then sing in a cool Tim Burton movie, and i’ll get to use blades again! I’ll go ahead and be rumored to be in 2 upcoming sweet comic book-movies. Hell, while I’m at it, hey guys want to do that band thing again?”

(just fyi…that is Depp’s career if condensed into a rant)

oh and side note…I know the rumor has been falsified, but wouldn’t it have been ironic if Depp would have played Riddler in a new Batman movie…and Burton isn’t the director anymore.

This is why Johhny is cool, it’s 2008…and he still picks up a guitar & dresses in 80’s clothes

Los Angeles (E! Online) – Johnny Depp returned to his musical roots Friday night, reuniting with his old band The Kids for a fund-raiser in Florida.

With his girlfriend, Vanessa Paradis, and their 9-year-old daughter, Lily-Rose, screaming in the crowd of 2,500, the Oscar-nominated actor strapped on a guitar and sang backup vocals during the power-pop group’s 90-minute set.

The second annual Sheila Witkin Memorial Reunion Concert honors The Kids’ late manager, who was well known in South Florida’s music scene. All proceeds from the benefit go to the Dan Marino Foundation, which funds programs for children with special needs. The band also reunited in January 2007 for the same cause.

The 45-year-old actor joined The Kids when he was a high school studentin Miramar, Fla., and moved to Los Angeles with them in search of a record deal. After the band broke up, Depp decided to pursue a career in acting.

Johnny and the boys are scheduled to rock out again tonight on day two of the benefit.
