Its a shame that if you dressed like this today, you'd be a 42-year-old virgin.
I saw Brotherhood of the Wolf a couple of days ago, and alls I gots to say is "Goddamn". That is one big raging boner of a movie if I've ever seen one. Its in French, which unfortunately probably means that the French made it, but it survives this shame and outshines its origins.

I don't want to give the plot away, seeming as the only knowledge I walked into the theatre with was the statement Tycho from Penny Arcade made about the movie: "...our protagonists are ordered by the King to kick ass, look cool, and to shmoove it up wit the ladies." I have to tell you, going to see a movie with that little amount of knowledge is akin to jumping off a cliff and just hoping that someone forgot their giant air mattress in the canyon below. Especially a foreign movie. With subtitles. Made by the French.

But as life is known to throw a curve ball my way from time to time, and surprises being more memorable than already knowing the quality, the movie actually turned out being pretty damned bad ass across the board. Action: Check, Story: Check, Boobies: Check, BadAss Camera work: Check. I got so involved in fact, that after action sequences (with no dialogue) I would be confused when they would start talking in French again because I had absorbed so much of the movie that I guess my brain thought it was in english.

There is one point of compunction, however. A few of my friends (and you know who you are) are unable to suspend disbelief in a few key subjects long enough to ever enjoy this movie. So to them I would say: Sucks to be you. You're going to miss out on some pretty cool shiznit.

All in all it was definitely worth the six bucks for the ticket, so if you've got the means, I definitely recommend catching this one. Sorry to be scant on the details, but as I said before, I think my lack of knowledge about the story added to the enjoyment.

Well, we saw it in a theater, so I'm finding it hard to believe that you have a picture of us watching it...
