napoleon dynamite
« on: August 01, 2004, 01:15:00 AM »
i actually saw this like a week and a half ago, but yeah... i saw it again today so i figured i'd make a thread about it.

this is such a fun movie, just because it's so completely random and has no plot. i like that because it feels more realisitic... and the fact that it's set in the middle of nowhere (rural idaho) where everything is like 10-20 years behind makes it funnier too.

i know that not many people know about this movie though. i'll tell people that i saw it, and they go "...what's napoleon dynamite?" heh.

it's basically just about this nerdy guy named napoleon dynamite... and his friend pedro, and deb, and his brother kip, and his uncle rico... etc etc. hehe... it's just a fun movie.

and the dance scene is sexy. hahaha... i wish i could move like napoleon!



go see it.

Fuck I want to see this. My friend saw it, and said it was really good. And Ben Gibbard from Death Cab like it, too...... I'll have to get it on video when it comes out.

I still see advertisements and I'm like, the hell is this?  I don't think I'll like it too much, I'm not into random stuff, since I'm random.  I like structured things.  Things unlike me.  I'll shut up now.

I saw it this past weekend... AMAZING. I loved it, it was so off key, it was a nice fresh experience from everything else in the theater... It also gave me great memories of the 80s... and it reminded me of American Movie as well. Good stuff. A few things... HIS BOOTS. HIS DANCE. PEDRO. Awesome.

hahahahaha


i love how it seems so 80s, but it takes place in present day... or at least in the late 90s.

i would say it's worth going to the theater. plus, i don't think it will be on video for another month or two... at least.


as for the clip part, i have no idea where you would find out, as i haven't looked for any myself. but you can check out the official home page...they have SOME clips up there (just not the dancing)

yea its funny! i cracked up at the end where he started danceing! Thats my fav part! ;D
Fuck this fucking world. I don't belong here. I belong.. with someone like me. Someone nice who actually has feelings. who tries not to hurt other people. That would be nice. actually once -n- awhile... i wonder if there is a part on the world that is like that. I don't think so, cause the way people treat me. I mean, i don't try to hurt people, but, y'all do. People never understand me. Never have. Never will. So  just run away.

Yeah, at first it was very difficult to figure out when it was taking place... I guess it was just to show how certain areas of the US are a good decade behind us. ^^;;
