Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
The idea for this thread came from a recent trip to the video store where I found some hilariously weird films that I'm surprised a major chain like Blockbuster would carry.
The first one: (spoilered for moderate NSFWness and hueg)
This movie was quite interesting and introduced me to a genre I never knew existed: gay versions of mainstream movies. It's about four gay friends trying to get laid before they go off to college, and they get into some H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S situations along the way lemme tell you. This movie was actually pretty enjoyable
if only because there's some shockingly raunchy stuff here. This movie is seriously one step away from hardcore porn, and features a lot more butt fucking and penis (including the dong of Survivor winner Richard Hatch!) then I expected to see. Definetly an unforgetable movie.
This next one took the fucking cake though.
See the poster? None of that shit happened. They never go to Hollyweed, there's no hot babes to be found, and they don't end up getting any food. Furthermore their trip does not turn into the wildest night of their lives, as the whole movie takes place during daytime.
Needless to say I felt robbed by the clever photoshopped cover. I expected this to be a hilarious pot smoking romp in the vein of such classics as Friday or How High. However it turned out to be two hours of some stoned dudes in Inglewood, CA trying to be funny in front of a camcorder. Literally there were like 10 people in the whole movie and the entire thing was shot with a hand held cam.
One of the highlights from this one include several parts where a line is delivered three or four times, as if they forgot to edit out all the alternate takes. Another is where our heroes are being chased by some ill intentioned gangsters, and some horrible stock gun shot SFX are added despite the fact that no one has a gun. My all time favorite part of the film though is when one character is standing on a patio and he's supposed to be talking to someone in Mexico, when they're clearly on the same patio about 5 feet over.
Has anyone got any stories to share about little known/bizarre/horrible weird movies they've seen in the video store, on the internet, on TV at 2 AM or wherever?
