    Boondock Saints.

    I agree the ending sucked. Not even starting the argument about how overrated the movie is.
    They ran out of makeup for Dafoe. What would you have done?

    That depends. Dying during a grandiose swordfight with old-school pirates would be bad-ass, but he got shot in the back by shitty modern pirates who stole a couple of watches and an outboard motor.

    I've heard a lot of shit talked about Boondock Saints, for various reasons, and I'll admit that it's flawed (though I personally enjoy it)

    but I'm not sure I've ever heard anyone say it was great except for the ending

    me and others who like it just seem to take the whole thing in stride

    Thats because everyone falls in one of two groups its
    a. the greatest movie ever
    b. overrated

    the ending thing is just my thought because they turned a weird british style crime comedy (like lock stock or something) and ruined it by shoving some social bullshit down the audiences throat. Thats just my thought.

    Mission Hill was killed off when only 6 episodes were aired on WB. Only 13 were ever finished and they were on Adult Swim and such for a while. Now on DvD...


    The show was way ahead of its time with the first animated gay male kiss in the pilot.

    Huh? Karl kissed Homer in The Simpsons' 15th episode, Simpson and Delilah, back in 1990. Unless you mean a kiss between two gay characters. If you just meant two animated dudes kissing, not even close.

    the whole movie is social bullshit

    The last track on the Protomen record is a big disappointment

    It's true, Fari

    Due Vendetta isn't a bad song but putting it right after the fucking huge musical robotgasm that is Sons of Fate was a poor move

    I always think of the second to last track as the end of the movie, and the last track is what plays when the credits roll

    Ok, late as hell, but this. This right here.

    I've exposed more people than I can count to The Protomen, and everyone says the same thing about Due Vendetta.

    I've always treated that song as pretty much a bonus track. It's obvious it doesn't quite fit in with the whole rock-opera story line they had going on, but goddamn if that song isn't entertaining as hell.

    Side note, second album apparently in the works? Maybe? God I hope so.

    I enjoyed the Boondock Saints the first time I watched it

    On subsequent viewings, the flaws were increasingly apparent

    And then I saw that documentary about the guy who made it and how he was a complete cock to everyone and squandered all the success he was handed and basically whizzed it all right down his leg

    So now I don't really like the movie

    I don't see why the director's character should make you not like a movie he's directed

    I mean, clearly that's a factor for you, so I ain't gonna give you shit for it

    but I don't really care what a director is like as a person when I'm watching one of his films
