    Confessions of a Superhero (2007)

    This is a documentary about a group of folks who dress up as superheros and make their living on tips taking photos with tourists.

    All of these people want to be in the movie industry, and make a decent living from tips. They were on the news when they became overly aggressive with tourists. By law, they can't demand to be paid for being in photos. They will say "We work on tips." Sometimes, particularly the person who plays Batman gets enraged and will go after those who don't "tip." These people are glorified panhandlers.

    Sad, but intriguing. The guy who has a stunning resemblance to Christopher Reeves claims he is the son to Sandy Dennis (Who's Afraid of Virgnia Woolf? and Splendor in the Grass). Superheros they are not, but they have few options at this point.

    Either 75 or 80 out of 100.

    The last movie I saw was Pedro Almodovar's La Mala Educacion/Bad Education, a movie about an actor and a film-maker who used to be childhood lovers at the strict catholic school with the creepster child-molesting priest, and the film that comes about from their collaboration.

    Eh, while I thought the story telling was effective and the plot was twisted enough to keep it interesting, the movie was just a little too flamboyantly homoerotic for my taste.

    All in all, I'd give it a 6/10

    Loved it, it's the movie I have seen most often. A grand total of 8 times. My all time favorite sci-fi spoof.

    Did you see Pedro Almodovar's Volver. I liked that one very much. Penelope Cruz is so pretty.

    funniest movie I've seen in years was Wedding Crashers...

    "I've got a stage 4 clinger" :lol:

    Just saw Twilight this past weekend. I haven't read the books but my daughter has and we both loved it.

    John Beckwith: Claire's mom just made me grab her hooters.
    Jeremy Grey: Well snap out of it! What, a hot older women made you feel her cans? Stop crying like a little girl.
    John Beckwith: I wasn't crying like a little girl.
    Jeremy Grey: Why don't you try getting jacked off under the table in front of the whole damn family and have some real problems, jackass. Hey, what were they like anyway? They looked pretty good, are they real? Are they built for speed or comfort? What'd you do with them? Motorboat? You play the motorboat?
    [makes sputtering motorboat noise]
    Jeremy Grey: You motorboatin son of a bitch! You old sailor you! Where is she? She still in the house?
    John Beckwith: What's wrong with you?
    Jeremy Grey: What do you mean "what's wrong with me?" What's wrong with you?
    John Beckwith: No, what's wrong with you?
    Jeremy Grey: No, what's wrong with you? You're projecting!
    John Beckwith: Drop it.
    Jeremy Grey: You drop it! You stop projecting on me! Why don't you go enjoy yourself while I go ice my balls and spit up blood.
    John Beckwith: Drop it!
    [starts walking away]
    Jeremy Grey: Team player!
