hurry with the ninja edit!
Holy shit. You're the first person that I've ever agreed with that on. Never really thought about the Pulp Fiction connection since I was too young to see either of them when they came out, but I generally take a lot of shit for not liking that movie.You can't embed in this forum.
Boondock Saints has to be one of the most retarded and overrrated "cult" movies of all time. The only thing I can rationalize it with is that it came out not too long after Pulp Fiction and people were desperately wanting another "cultish cool" type movie and this was it.

I know, dude. Some people just can't be helped. There weren't enough stoners at that party is what I've deduced.Brad, a solid 9/10's of the kids from your birthday party are going to love this movie.
Interestingly enough I know a dude that LOVES Candlebox and Boondock Saints. That explains a lot.I've been berated often for it myself. It was 5 years between that and Pulp Fiction, but about a year after PF came out there was an explosion of indie films coming out. While that was a good thing, there were a LOT of BAD movies in the mix and it took awhile for the dust to settle. It was like when the Seattle bands were big yet you had assclowns like Candlebox hogging up radio play too since anything "Seattle" was considered "golden."
That's happened to me way too many times. I keep waiting for one of these hardcore lovers of the movie to pull it out of their collection and show it to me. However, an interesting thing happens. None of them have it.Everytime I've been asked if I have seen Boondock Saints, I say no and they act like I shot their dog or something. Wtf is the deal with this movie?
I'm right there with you, I'm not saying the first was an academy award winner, IMO the movie was pretty bad ass.I can't wait to see this movie.
i didn't think it was very popular, but then again I don't really care what anybody else thinks about it. Not the best filmed, acted, written movie I have ever seen, but I like it anyway.
I can see how nose-up movie snobs wouldn't like this. Especially if they see it after somebody tells them it's good, but I personally think the movie is pretty cool. It's not the BEST movie, but I like how they show what happened as the investigator is piecing together the events of the "hits."
Funny Man was funny, especially with his Coke joke. Then there's him grabbing the tit of the dead stripper. Don't forget his bellhop/room service uniform he's sporting along with his black eye and a name tag that says "Jafar." I like how this movie is always either loved by people or hated -- nobody really says "it was an ok movie."THAT was cool, and the best part of the movie.
Thats one of the greatest aspects of the movie IMO. Of course Dafoe is like that in every movie he's in.I liked the fact that Dafoe became more and more bizzare and intense in his theatrical explanation of the hits, to the point where he's actually right there with you, guiding you right through the whole thing, reliving it with you to the point where he's sweating with exhaustion when he's through, lol!
