Bubba Ho-Tep

I just got done watching Bubba Ho-Tep with Bruce Campbell as Elvis (perhaps) and Ossie Davis as Jack Kennedy (less likely). What a brilliant film. It was not as silly as I'd expected, nor as romp-some, but is instead a poignant look at growing old and all that means. Who'd have guessed that an evil dead movie could use the metaphor to mean something so much more?

Bravo! Give it a watch, especially if you're a Campbell or Elvis fan.

(Oh, and it was only worth 650 calories on the exercycle. Hm. I guess a dark comedy about aging and death doesn't inspire one to pedal quickly....)
