Welcome to Twitter in Focus where media comes to die. Today’s contestant is comedian, Chris D’Elia. He’s funny on stage, let’s see what he’s tweeting.
December 5th: “I’m on
@midnight right now.”
Love that show. Hope you won, dude.
Who would say that to a comic?
I would watch that cartoon. Weekly. Will Sasso’s Arnold is just too killer.
December 6th: “An airplane toilet flushing is louder than any noise in any of the Transformer movies.”
December 9th: “The greatest picture of all time. ”
WTF? Which movie is that from? Has to be the last Rambo.
Hey, American Brad is fairly psyched. Just to be clear.
December 10th: “Whether male or female, no one who has ever had sex with a woman has said “I’m fluent in sarcasm”. That’s only said by someone who fucks men”
That would be a weird thing to say anyway, I think. I mean, depending on how you said it.
I like the entire concept of the Podcast because after 10 minutes, shit starts to get long.
Although I will miss Whitney Cummings’ ass, I think this will be a better show.
December 15th: “Garth Brooks calling his album “Man Against the Machine” is like me calling my special “Man Against Almost a Beard””
His album should be called “Man Against a Plate of Cupcakes”.
Okay, let’s rate Chris’s tweets. Understated, not a lot of plugs. Digging the podcast. I give him an 8 for Style, a 7 for Mustness and a 9 for Insanity. That’s an overall score of 8, follow Chris.

This 2009 movie stars Chris O’Dowd of the IT Crowd and Anna Faris. Basically, it’s a time travel movie that mostly takes place in an English pub. Chris plays Ray, an amusement park worker with dreams of being a science fiction writer. He and his two friends are going nowhere fast in their dead end jobs, but enjoy nightly visits to the local pub. Faris plays Cassie, a time traveling “fixer” of sorts that’s looking for a time leak inside the pub. Turns out, it’s in the bathroom. Ray and his friends end up traveling back and forth through time within the pub.
Some of the things are your standard time travel conventions: someone is going to be famous in the future, there’s a dystopian future, a timeline where people die, etc. Think of it as a low rent, English version of Back to the Future II, only instead of Marty McFly, it’s three drunken idiots in a pub. Not bad for a low budget movie. It leaves itself open for a sequel, which probably wouldn’t be too bad either. (There is an after credits scene, btw.) This is a perfect Netflix movie. Fun, funny, but not over done like, say, Edge of Tomorrow with Tom Cruise.
You could click a lot worse, bros.

This crazy Dutch zombie movie is a lot of fun and it’s a chance to see a well-like genre film through the eyes of the Dutch filmmakers. You don’t get lines like, “It’s so simple, an American could understand it.” in most American films.
KZ is sort of like a Harold & Kumar movie, only Harold & Kumar fight zombies. Our hero, Aziz, has a hot date with the office hottie, Tess. Unfortunately, his idiot brother, Mo, ends up getting him fired and then thrown in jail. Shortly after, a Russian satellite crashes on Amsterdam and the zombies, imbued with green blood, start popping up. Aziz spends most of the movie trying to save Tess, but the plot takes a few other twists and turns that I won’t give away.
This is a comedy, so some of the scenes are a bit ridiculous and have a more European, slapstick quality, but overall, it’s a fun ride. And even when something weird happens, I was willing to stay tuned because the filmmakers inserted interesting zombie-fighting scenarios. As an added bonus, the Dutch babes are smokin’ hot. Gigi Ravelli, the cop that follows Aziz, kick ass, takes names and is easy on the eyes. Directed by Martijn Smits and Erwin van den Eshof, it’s currently available on Netflix. Not a bad way to kill 90 minutes, bros.
