OH NO YOU DIDN’T # 6:  COOP has a sci-fi moment! GOOGLE read his mind (and now he’s spooked)!

Google has just officially scared me. To understand this, you have to bear with me here…

Anyone who’s tried to watch Shane Carruth’s indie sci-fi thriller Primer (made for only $7000) probably had to do a lot of head scratching to figure it out. Me? I flat out couldn’t follow it. The plot is too complex, the acting is too monotone for me to pay full attention and the time travel concept behind it is too cerebral even for me. It made me feel so thick-headed that I got frustrated with it and put it out of my mind. Fast forward to today…

OH NO YOU DIDN’T #5!…  CHEECH & CHONG have remade TRON!  No, I’m not kidding.  by COOP

Got the heads up on this one from the fellas over at C.H.U.D.

This is nuttier than a fruitcake or a burlap sack full of squirrels.

Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong have entertained us with their pot-fueled antics since 1978’s “Up in Smoke.” It’s hard to believe the two have kept their schtick (and their liver/brains) alive since then. Now they’ve done something I’m not sure what to make of…

OH NO YOU DIDN’T #4: McConaughey + Gary Oldman playing his dwarf twin brother! TIPTOES review by COOP

OH NO YOU DIDN’T #4:  McConaughey + Gary Oldman playing his dwarf twin brother!  TIPTOES review by COOP

This movie came out in 2003. I think we all missed it because it went direct to DVD with zero publicity and as you can guess, there’s a good reason why. It’s a wannabe politically correct comedy disguised as an very un-PC comedy that comes across as so mean-spirited that it fails both comedically and dramatically. Wow. Trainwreck doesn’t even begin to describe this fascinating oddity of a film…

OH NO YOU DIDN’T #3: Someone who has never seen a STAR WARS movie tries to explain it! by COOP **UPDATED!**

OH NO YOU DIDN’T #3:  Someone who has never seen a STAR WARS movie tries to explain it!  by COOP **UPDATED!**

I declare this one a must-see. Some dude named Joe Nicolosi apparently asked an air-headed friend (girlfriend, maybe) Amanda to explain the original “Star Wars” trilogy even though she has NEVER SEEN any of the films. Correction: She’s seen bits and pieces and knows the characters’ names, but Joe tapes the entire explanation and adds animation for comedic effect. The result: A hilarious work of genius…

OH NO YOU DIDN’T #2:  Nic Cage sinks to a new low in BAD LIEUTENANT remake trailer!  by COOP

Apparently Werner Herzog had a brain aneurism and in his limited faculties suddenly thought remaking this film starring an increasingly looney Nic Cage and setting it in New Orleans to make use of southern stereotypes was a fantastic idea. While it sounded goofy to me, nothing prepared me for the hilarious awfulness that awaited me when I saw this first promo trailer…

Morgan Freeman asks Coop a question at THE BEST DAY premiere! Video below…


My short film THE BEST DAY premiered in October 2011 at the Delta Cinema in Clarksdale, Mississippi.

Little did I know I had a special guest in the audience who was about to ask me a question during the Q&A. Yep, I got a little flustered when I saw who it was.
