LFF Movie Club – Half Baked. Be friends with the Squirrel Master

Posted by LiveFor on April 2, 2010

“Get some sour cream and onion chips with some dip, man, some beef jerky, some peanut butter. Get some Häagen-Dazs ice cream bars, a whole lot, make sure chocolate, gotta have chocolate, man. Some popcorn, red popcorn, graham crackers, graham crackers with marshmallows, the little marshmallows and little chocolate bars and we can make s’mores, man. Also, celery, grape jelly, Cap’n Crunch with the little Crunch berries, pizzas. We need two big pizzas, man, everything on ’em, with water, whole lotta water, and Funyons.”

This weekends Live for Films Film Club choice is the classic stoner comedy, Half-Baked. If you haven’t seen it yet, get hold of a copy and prepare for hilarity and a MacGyver smoker. You’ll never look at the back of a dollar bill in the same way.

After Kenny accidentaly kills a cop’s diabetic horse by feeding it the food he purchased from a munchie run, he is put in jail and is given a 1 million dollar bail. The rest of the group must bail Kenny out before Nasty Nate gets to him. The group decides to sell marijuana that Thurgood gets through his job as a janitor at a pharmaceutical lab. They become pals with rap star Sir Smoke-A-Lot and the rivals of dealer Samson Simpson. On the side, Thurgood seeks the love of Mary Jane, an anti-pot daughter of a dealer. What follows is typical pothead behaviour with a ton of cameos. Look carefully.


The 1998 film is directed by Tamra Davis. It stars Dave Chappelle, Rachel True, Jim Breuer, Guillermo Díaz, Harland Williams, Tommy Chong, Willie Nelson, Jon Stewart, Stephen Baldwin, Tracy Morgan, Snoop Dogg, Janeane Garofalo and Bob Saget and more.

That’s a whole lot of people. So, who’s coming with me?

If you are just joining us the LFF Film Club is all about getting people to watch classic, cult, cool or just forgotten movies.

Watch it then talk about your favourite part, worst bit, best quote, coolest actor, plot holes, and more over on the LFF Forum.

“Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you, you’re cool, and fuck you, I’m out!”

Snoop Dogg’s ‘Hood Of Horror’, 2006 – Movie scnizzle review-izzle – 31 Days of Horror

Posted by LiveFor on October 21, 2009

Director: Stacy Title
Starring: Snoop Dogg, Ernie Hudson, Danny Trejo, Pooch Hall, Anson Mount, Jason Alexander, Billy Dee Williams
Running Time: 84 minutes
Score: 8.25 / 10

This review by Paul –all part of my 31 Days of Horror.

Send me your horror film reviews.

You’ll have to bear with me here readers, this is a hidden gem! I found it on Halloween night after a nights graft in the pub. I came home, feet throbbing, mind far too sober for a friday night, and slammed on the magic Virgin TV box-thingy in the corner with lots of flashing lights.

‘Lets check out the 99p offers shall we?’ I suggested to myself, had a vote, and won.

This was the one that drew my eye instantly. I love Snoop, dont get me wrong, but I’ve never really given him much wieght as an actor (see Mr. Bones or Dr. Bones, it’s so shit I can’t remember the title). I paid my money, made me smoke, cracked the stella and settled down.

It was ace.

The film opens with a fantastic anime sequence, lasting about 10 mins if memory serves me right (regular readers will know that my eyes kinda go quite frequently). It was really top quality and so unexpected I couldnt take my eyes off the screen. Jaw dropping stuff, even Manga Snoop looked a nice balance of cool/evil/unspoken threatening. Then the film moved into the next phase, live action filming, but the film has an old style quality to it. The three interlinking ‘short scary stories from The Hood’ have the look of the 70’s Twilight Zone:The Movie. Bright jumpers, off-colour orange everywhere, ya know?

To be honest, I was outta phase when the live action was on, like stepping through the Time Tunnel, but each story was interspersed with more anime, a story within a story (I see plans within plans). Wish I could tell you more, but I can’t. Take my word for it, it was 99p and it really kicked arse. Seek it out.

It was a nice place to visit, but I wouldn’t want to live there…

Lord of the Rings, 1978 – Movie Review of the Ralph Bakshi Animated version

Posted by LiveFor on December 5, 2008

Director: Ralph Bakshi
Starring: Christopher Guard, William Squire, John Hurt, Michael Graham Cox, Anthony Daniels
Running Time: 132 minutes
Score: 9 / 10

Here’s another cracking review by Paul.

Ok, so I’m not going to come on here and say that this is superior to Peter Jackson’s (PJ) efforts. If I did I think Phil (Hello – Phil LFF) would erase me and I’d be in a Live For Film Limbo. Can’t happen!

But if we treat this as it once was, our only link to those fine books we read and reread (I know for sure I’m not the only one) when we were younger, it does a mighty fine job.

Now I could stand up and get the video case (yes, video) for the details but that’s Phil’s job.

No need to describe the story, but this feature does has some nice touches.

The Balrog, what a scary ass dude he is, alll roars and flame and anger. Only a little guy but you still wouldn’t mess. Nice set of stills thrown in for the Gandalf/Balrog fight. The Nine, dark and nasty, especially when they turn up for the first time.

The animation isnt amazing, but considering its time its good enough. What this has, however, is that wierd actor/animation overlay (the process is called of rotoscoping, a technique in which scenes are first shot in live-action, then traced onto animation cels – Phil LFF), put to excellent use when depicting the Orks in the latter fight scenes.

I don’t know why the fight scene between Gandalf and Saruman was up for so many awards in PJ’s version. Was I alone thinking it was rubbish? In this, the turning of Saruman had a darker essence to it, none of this ‘I’m gonna spin you in the air’ lark, a proper betrayal. And you get boss fireballs later on, like a proper bloody Mage! I spit on Potter.

Also, just look at Gollum and tell me you haven’t seen him before, you’d even swear it was the same guy doing the voice. Maybe it really is Gollum and he’s really old and came out of retirement to please PJ, but now finds it a bit tiring and longs to return to the wild, fresh fish in mouth.

It’s a shame they didn’t get to finish the film. I dont know if it was a ‘cursed set’ or the dude just died while making it, its still a shame. But it does raise the question of would I be happy with a feature length modern animation of LOTR? would you? I’m unsure. It seems to have worked for Star Wars, but I can’t comment on that personally.

It’s worth checking out I promise you. Ok, so I did post a review of a Snoop Dogg movie, but you can trust me.

Although the film was a financial success, it received a mixed reaction from critics, and the original distributors refused to fund a sequel to cover the remainder of the story.

Snoop Dogg makes mashed potato with Martha Stewart for shizzle!

Posted by LiveFor on November 25, 2008

I saw this on Boing Boing and had to share. It truly is a proper WTF moment!

Martha Stewart made mashed potatoes with Fatherhood star Snoop Dogg on her television show recently. About the very funny video clip above, she blogs:

[He] taught me some of his very own language called Snoop-guistics. He and his posse add ‘izzles’ onto the ends of words. It’s kind of a code, or a way of communicating so that others won’t know what they’re talking about. Example: fo shizzle is how they say, for sure. Snoop Dogg also shared –

* Crack-a-lackin – means get something poppin

* Chuuuch – means take God everywhere you go and everything will be all right

* All hood – means good

* Ball til ya fall – get as much money as you can before you die

What did you think of the Dogg’s mashed potatoes?
