themoviespoiler.com: "WARNING! The ending to these films will be revealed!" Because some of us hate surprises. Or maybe we just want to ruin The Master of Disguise for our "Turtle! Turtle!" Co-workers.

"The credits are full of out-takes and deleted scenes, worth staying for."

Can I skip the movie and just go for the credits and deleted scenes?

Sorry, Pink, it's been posted. I do enjoy the Movie Spoilers, though. It gives me the conversational currency to talk about the latest movies with friends, without my having to spend the cash to view them.

Since PST brought it up, I must gleefully point out that rottentomatoes.com has a current rating of 2% for The Master of Disguise. Two percent (a few days ago it was at 0). That's one, count it, one good review out of 62 total. This thing is setting new land speed records for awfulness.

Also, the reviews are amazingly vicious.

for our "Turtle! Turtle!" Co-workers.

Ugh - I hate those rat bastards. Why is it that the more clueless co-workers of the world will pick up whatever advertising tripe that flicks across their screens at night and then regurgitate it the next day around the water cooler?

Until recently I still worked with people who would at any given time - perhaps in a meeting - ask, "Is that your final answer?" Or better yet they would accuse someone of being the weakest link before bidding them goodbye. I half expect these bozos to still say, "Wazzzzzup!"

Sorry about the rant - but these people just suck.

PinkStainlessTail, I absolve thee of thy sins. For thy penance thou must feed a bunny.

(Also be sure to check out their "mini-movie-endings" subsidiary, MoviePooper. For example, The Crying Game.)

I needed that link after the Post about "Signs" that lasted about 5 minutes. It lasted just long enough to make me really want to know what "Signs" was all about if it wasn't about aliens and crop circles.

I'm bummed because the "Signs" thread got trashed, because I wanted to spoil the ending by revealing ...

SPOILER WARNING

Crop circles are made by giant pancakes.

Double-post or not, I hadn't seen it before. Thanks.?

I wouldn't say "Master of Disguise" was bad. I was disappointed though, because I think the concept was a good idea, but it was poorly executed. The result was a movie that ran a little short, and made even less sense.

[confession]

I find that "turtle! turtle!" bit oddly funny. Especially the line: "Am I not turtle enough for the Turtle Club?" I have, however, never said that line out loud -- at work or otherwise. That would be obnoxious.

The worst part about the whole turtle line is that he does it with Kermit the Frog's voice.

PST, thanks for posting that link, the site was down for a while, and I am glad to see it back.

i posted a spoiler for "Lovely and Amazing" to that site, the moderator guy is quite nice. thanks for the tip, PST.

on the Dana Carvey debacle, i thought the line was, "Am I not *turtle-ey* enough," which would have been funnier, to me, anyway, for some reason.
