Subject: Transsiberian, or Never Ever Ever Go To Russia
Well, I finally saw Transsiberian, and you know what? It’s pretty scary. And by that I mean Russia!* For starters, their manky trains appear to pre-date The Great War, which is just unsafe, and are chock full of shady weirdos like the hot drug smuggler/rapist Spanish dude and his runaway American teenager girlfriend who share the sleeping cabin with our sorta happily married do-gooder American heroes played by Woody Harrelson and Emily Mortimer with creepy and altogether unfavorable results, like having gross sex right in front of you and then stashing their drugs in your bags and then trying the raping on you.

ZOMBIELAND (2009/IN THEATERS) As SML’s self-anointed zombie mayhem-thusiast, I ventured out to see Zombieland, despite the sleepless nights and near bedwettings some people often experience after viewing a romp through the apocalypse. What can I say, someone is a glutton for punishment. But color me surprised, Zombieland is a lighthearted dysfunctional family comedy, less goofy and satirical Shaun of the Dead than National Lampoon’s Vacation featuring a virus plague. The dramatic tension in this sucker lasts about 10 minutes, and the remainder is spent with characters gently teasing each other, driving gas guzzlers through vacant cities, and learning lessons about life, love, and family. What the fuck? An end-of-days trifle? Should we be teaching the children that zombies are not to be taken seriously? Lives could be lost!
