Bubba Ho-Tep

I watched Bubba Ho-Tep with my brother this evening. Odd, but *very* entertaining movie. ;-)

If you haven't seen it, you should. Particularly if you're a Bruce Campbell fan (what could be better than Bruce Campbell playing an aging Elvis (with a walker) while fighting a mummy? ;-).


Bubba Ho-Tep.

I do have to be honest, it maybe doesn't *quite* live up to the hype, in my opinion. . .

However, that doesn't take anything away from it. It was a very good, and very entertaining movie, even if it wasn't a *great* movie. And, considering how much crap is out there these days, I'll take a good, entertaining movie any day. ;-)

Re: Bubba Ho-Tep.

Good point. You can't go wrong with Bruce.

As for hype, I mostly heard from a few friends that it was a great movie. A couple of them just raved about it. And while it was a very good movie, it wasn't great. That left me initially a little disappointed about the movie, although later I realized that even if it wasn't quite as great as I'd expected, it was still good, and worth watching.

Re: Bubba Ho-Tep.

I was lucky with CTHD, in that I saw it just a week after it opened, because a friend of mine said it was worth seeing, and she wanted to go see it again. So, I managed to miss out on all the hype surrounding it, when I saw it.

I quite enjoyed it, but I do agree, the amount of hype that started flowing after a few weeks was way out there.

It could be worse, though. Did you ever see Crouching Tiger, Hidden Muskete. . . erm, I mean The Musketeer? I blame the absolutely horrible pile of steaming crap that is The Musketeer on CTHD. I'm glad I watched CTHD first, or else I think The Musketter would have completely ruined any chance at enjoying it.
