Hot Tub Time Machine: Initial Thoughts


So I just caught the trailer for "Hot Tub Time Machine," about a bunch of guys that travel back into the 80's because of some supernatural powers with their hot tub.

First Thought: WTF!?!

Second Thought: Wow, that might actually be funny and propose some original comic ideas.

Third Thought: It has John Cusack, and he annoys the fu*k out of me!

Fourth Thought: I will think hardly and intensely before I would go see this movie. I mean, you might laugh some. So that would be worth it in its own right.

QATFYG: Do you like Time Travel movies and tv shows? Do you like John Cusack?

  2. I am generally a fan of time travel films despite their complete implausibility and weird errors. However, this film is akin to my taste. Prompted by your mention of the film, I watched the trailer. Even though, the film is ridden with inconsistencies appearant just from the trailer alone, I was left with one question. Why is someone Clark Duke's age partying with someone John Cusack's age. Really? and why were all of these people in a hot tub? Needless to say, I will not be seeing this film; however, there are probably some positive aspects. Someone out there will probabl find some of the jokes funny.

  3. The movie is called HOT TUB TIME MACHINE. And the revelation in the movie by Craig Robinson (who is pretty much the main reason to see this movie) is: "It must be some kind of... hot tub machine."

    It looks so absurd and ridiculous, that I have to see it for the cheap, stupid laughs that it will provide. I'll probably forget it by the next day, but I need a dose of low brow humor every once in a while to keep my snobbishness in check. I think everybody does.

    Oh, 80s John Cusack is da bomb. And High Fidelity rocks.

  4. Hmmm... This film looks like people have run out of ideas in some ways. I mean the plot is completely over used. Every 10 minutes there is a new travel back in time and relive the past film. Well, I have to hand it to this film for leasting choosing a new method of time travel instead of just getting hit over the head. But I have to agree with the first Anon...Why a hot tub? Would four guys just be sitting around in a hot tub? Wouldn't they be doing something slightly more exciting. This film seems to be marketed to a specific group, which just isn't me personally, but I am sure some people will like the humor. I think this film has the potentially to either better way better than expected or possibly another All about Steve (I haven't seen this film, but from the general public opinion, this film seems to be recived extremely negatively). But this film is made with a unique cast, and I hope it succeeds, despite my lack of desire to see it.

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it

No Time to Fuck: The Goldfrapp Essay

Konnichiwa! This is Irina Cummings and I'm here to discuss one of the most brilliant, innovative, and creative artists in the entire history of mankind: Goldfrapp – or as I like to call them , GODfrapp – the fantastique, highly inspirational, and sometimes criminally overlooked electronic music duo from London consisting of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, whose godly music has certainly influenced the vast majority of today's synthpop ladies, including Lady Gaga, Little Boots, La Roux, Annie and Florence + the Machine (not electro but still worth your while). They're primarily known for their mind-blowing music (which have spanned pretty much every style of electronic music – and some non-electronic as well), their abstract, sexually ambiguous – at times forthright – lyrics which are often not gender- specific , and their elaborate shows, not to mention the amazing visual aesthetics of their work, conjuring images that masterly complement

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th
