Movie and Television Commentaries from The Peanut Gallery
Well, as wrong as I've been before, I think it has to be pretty simple. This guy clearly hates boxes. The fact that he's beating them up is a metaphor for boxing. There's an old adage that no movie about boxing is really about boxing; it's about the human condition. As demonstrated in such boxing films as Cinderella Man, Rocky, and especially Raging Bull, the human condition is that, by and large, humans are jerks. And in what movie did Steve Martin encounter a guy who hates cans, very much like this guy hates boxes? Gymkommentary 12 is The Jerk.
Derek, you're often wrong, but don't ever stop trying! Your powers of deduction are so entertaining to follow.
Are you saying that I'm wrong again? Then is the fact that the guy is wielding home-made Wolverine claws a clue that #12 is WOLFgang peterson's great submARINE movie Das Boot? WOLF-ARINE? Right? Gotta be.
What happened? Where is my new Gymkommentary?!
It is coming! Chris and I recorded the track on schedule but unfortunately both of our day jobs have kept us from getting it online on time. We are working on it; I'm hoping (but not promising) it'll be online early next week. I am happy at least one person is upset that it's late. Somebody cares!
They say sometimes I care all too much.
