If your Christian slave name is Ron or Rampager, then it was you(ze) that correctly identified Mitchieville’s Mad Manic MesmErizing Mystery Movie™ the last time we played. Which was a month ago. The movie was The Dead Zone. We had fun. It’s hard to believe you don’t remember.
But it was you(ze), and The Mayor couldn’t be more proud. At the time of last play, The Mayor didn’t award any prizes to our winners, but this week that is all about to change. There will be prizes awarded, and with a little luck, some third world nation voodoo, and possibly a slipped $20 into The Mayor’s mitt, you could be that winner. The Mayor will describe the prizes and such after a brief description of today’s movie.
Today’s movie was written by Mary Harron and stars Christian Bale. This movie was released in 2000, was made on a bit of a shoestring budget, but grossed well at the theatres, with about $35 million worldwide. Here is a brief description of today’s movie, brought to you by plagiarist TDSB board chaircow, Chris Spence:
A wealthy New York investment banking executive hides his alternate psychopathic ego from his co-workers and friends as he escalates deeper into his illogical, gratuitous fantasies.
The Mayor thought he had seen this movie, but after that terrible description, he’s not sure any more.
Do you know what this movie is? Ya, sure you do. You have all the answers, don’t you, hot shot? Well then, c’mon, let’s hear it. Just don’t sit there eating BBQ chips and drinking Aspartame-filled sodas, get on the puter and type.
Oh, you want to see what the prize is? Good job holding out, you’re not as stupid as Chris Spence looks.
The winner of today’s Mystery Movie will receive a copy of The Cabin in the Woods, and two other pirated movies of The Mayor’s choice. The Mayor isn’t going to give you any primo titles, for sure, but you will get some watchable movies. That’s a very good deal, considering you have zero skin in the game. Wow, put like that and The Mayor wants to recind his offer. But he won’t, because he’s a gentleman. And he needs to cull his movie collection.
So, how weze gonna do this? Simple. As simple as an inner-city grade student. First off, the winner must correctly identify today’s movie. Secondly: since there will be multiple people correctly identifying today’s movie, The Mayor has picked a number between 1 – 100,000. The person closest to that number without going over, will win today’s bag of prizes.
Let’s git ‘er dun!
What movie and number am I?
