Speed 2: Cruise Control - DVD podBLAST

It's a few years after Speed, and Annie (Sandra Bullock) has dumped super-buff Jack Traven (Keanu Reeves) for a pleasantly compact Alex Shaw (Jason Patric), who she believes to be a nice, mellow member of LAPD's "Suicide Squad".

When she totally plausibly finds out that he's actually an adrenaline freak, she gets really, believably upset. Luckily, Alex keeps cruise tickets stuffed down his pants for just such an occasion.

From here, I'm sure you can imagine: Psychotic, scorned employee (Willem Dafoe); hapless, gay cabin attendant; inappropriate sexual tension; Scottish crew.

Wait, you want SPEED!?! Oh, we got it, baby! How about an ocean liner that tops out at 20mph (32kph)!!! X-TREME!!!!!

Hello, podblasters. This is Franklin T Marmoset of England, lone defender of Tim Burton's Batman Returns. Thanks for the subtle mention. Next week you will find out what a horrible mistake you have made in misjudging this fine film about Batman, clowns, monkeys, a hot chick in PVC, and Christopher Freakin' Walken. Not only do I guarantee this, but - like Vincent Kennedy McMahon - I guaranDAMN!tee it.

Nice to have you back - you guys are always funny.

P.S. Leprechaun 2 is a good one for St Patrick's Day. The film is set on that very day, plus it features the world's most comical and obvious use of a boob double.

Senko's imitation of Bill eating sounded like the average Film Pigs commentary. Those guys are aptly named when they get that foul junk food in their mouths.

BATMAN RETURNS is by far the best of the 1989-1997 Batman films.

Which isn't saying much.
