More Than a Mouthful (09.08.08)

I'd like to take a moment to update you on some important information dealing with the Reel Whore. First, the latest poll results are in. Because there were very few horror flicks opening between now and Halloween, I asked you, my readers, which of the following upcoming releases scare you the most. Here's what you said.

Care Bears Creepy (tie, 0 votes):
My Best Friend's Gi
rl, Eagle Eye
It's a shame, but the charismatic appeal of Dane Cook and Shia LaBeouf helped us sleep safe with these picks.

Gremlins Gory (tie, 1 vote):
The Family That Preys
, Nights in Rodanthe
Out of the ten votes cast, only two people cringed at the thought of sitting through another Tyler Perry production or Nicholas Sparks adaptation.

Michael Meyers Massacre (2 votes):
gkok Dangerous
Looking like he was auditioning for the sequel to The Wig, Nicolas Cage managed to freak out only a couple of folks. Surprisingly, Fletch of Blog Cabins wasn't afraid of no Cage.

And the overwhelming winner is:

Fucked Up, Leatherface Style (6 votes):
Beverly Hills Chihuahua

Be afraid, stargazers, be very afraid. Behold the chihuahua without all the Hollywood flash:

That's some scary shit right there.

Moving on. In LAMB news, we've crowned our Top 10 Western films. The best news is that Reel Whore really knocked this category home, having nominated five of the ten winners. My personal Top 10 Westerns are:

10. 3:10 to Yuma (2007)
09. A Fistful of Dollars
08. High Plains Drifter
07. Tombstone
06. Unforgiven
05. My Name Is Nobody
04. The Magnificent Seven
03. The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
02. Outlaw Josey Wales
01. Once Upon A Time In the West

Next up, we LAMBers will be voting on the Top 10 Musicals. Needless to say, I'll be spending the weekend watching about six more musicals so I can complete my list beyond The Wizard of Oz, Chicago, Moulin Rouge!, and Rent.

If you're like most people, you avoided seeing Nicolas Cage's Bangkok Dangerous this past weekend. Maybe you are truly a Cage fan but couldn't get down with that wackadoo, or maybe you just loathe the man like others I know. Either way, the Reel Whore will be taking part in the ultimate fair shake for Cage. Blog Cabins will begin CAGEFEST this week so swing by and revel in the pros and cons of Cage's career.

Now, if you'll excuse me, it's time I take a break to soak in the glorious return of Summer Glau in the season 2 premiere of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Join me, won't you?

Large Association of Movie Blogs


  1. What they need to do is a movie with mutant chihuahuas that act as roving land piranha taking people down in packs.

    The one notable difference between your western list and mine is I passed on the Magnificent Seven as I am a bug fan of the Seven Samurai which was the what they ripped off to make the flick.

    I still have not been able to bring myself to watch the Terminator show. Even though Summer is quite tasty and delightful I need more than eye candy to kill an hour on a weekly basis.

  2. Total guy talk...

    Summer's face doesn't do much for me, but damn...that body is smokin'.

    I'd rather watch Snow Dogs 10 times before watching BH Chihuahuas once...

  3. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles is a good show. You are missing out, a lot.

    I love Summer's bod.

  4. @MW: I thought chihuahuas were already mutated? Great movie idea, tho. I wonder if it's been done? Cujo 2: Attack of the Anklebiters

    I loved 7Samurai too, but James Coburn & Charles Bronsan make Mag7 awesome.

    Like film-book says, you're missing out on T:SCC Movie Whore, and not just the eye candy.

    @fletch: I think I'd prefer to avoid both BHC and Snow Dogs.

    @all:I do love Summer's dancer body. She doesn't have traditionally sexy facial features but her smile is infectious.

  5. Those really and truly are the best westerns.

    @fletch: "I'd rather watch Snow Dogs 10 times before watching BH Chihuahuas once..."
