You can tell a lot about a person from the miscellaneous collection of
DVD’s stacked next to their television set. Every film we own says a little bit about us, whether
we’d like it to… or not. So I’ve decided to turn this uncompromising
insight on myself by analyzing my entire DVD collection… one impulse
buy at a time.


DAY 11: KISS KISS BANG BANG

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:
Ironman and a gay Iceman (Come on, you knew. We all
saw the volleyball scene in Top Gun) play detective together so they
can solve an overly complex case about a finger-eating dog, a drunken
Robocop and the third baseman for the Cleveland Indians. (It all makes
sense if you think about it.)

WHY I BOUGHT IT:
When I
interned at Silver pictures, they were thinking about casting
Johnny Knoxville and Warren Beatty (Oh, yeah… that would have been
soooo much better.) Also, I went to the premiere in Cannes and had
better seats than a bald Natalie Portman. (Man, how many times can I
name-drop in one paragraph?) I once hit on Anna Paquin in Vancouver.
(Apparently five times.)

WHAT IT SAYS ABOUT ME:
I wish I was
a private detective. I mean I’ve already got the poor lifestyle and
self-loathing down pat. Now all I need is a dead partner, cool hat, and
busty secretary.



Hit me back. Until next time…
