Like "The Transporter," which is not only terribly entertaining...but, if you think about it, kind of terrible. And extremely unrealistic. I mean, no one believes that Jason Statham can actually drive an Audi for 2 hours straight without it breaking down on him.
On the other hand, there's also Sam Raimi's first film, "The Evil Dead," which is actually excellent despite the fact that it cost a pack of peanuts and half a decade to film.
|(Sorry, Sam. This still doesn't let you off the hook for Spider-Man 3.)|
Don't let the dreads fool you. Gregg's great with a camera and knows how to translate a story to the silver screen. The story he has in mind just so happens to be The Sensationally Absurd Life and Times of Slim Dyson.
That's right, Slim Dyson, the world's happiest homeless writer, is going to be made into a live-action film. And what's more, we're going to be acting in it (worry not - we've both acted before and will not be giving you porno-grade acting), and it'll also feature some of Denver's great local film actors, who we've been meeting with and holding readings with over the past few weeks.
We're still hammering out a few details right now, but what we can tell you is that we spent the weekend scouting locations around downtown Denver. In costume. And we had a blast.

|Meet Slim Dyson! Also, meet a random bag of potatoes some homeless people left before we got here!|
|And of course, there's Monty, Slim's douchey hipster best friend, clad in the tightest pair of women's skinny jeans money can buy (apparently I'm a size 4 - u jelly ladies?)|

|What are friends for, right? The best stuff's always at the bottom... along with E. coli.|

Cheers and stay classy, folks!
