One man is copying the most notorious killers in history.


Drunken Master

SCORE: 5 Beers

Now I used to be a lowly page in a library shelving the notorious 300's section which of course contains the famous (Career, Death or Taxes) Ultimate Evil....I read it, various books on John Wayne Gacy and crowd, been there. Dahmer, Ramirez, Roy Raden, Strangler....etc etc. I read 'em, and I understood their killings. Driving in Dallas in rush hour, would anyone doubt me? This movie however throws a bunch of shit at you fairly quick, all surrounding the main character of 'Death and the Maiden' Sigourney Weaver. Her breast's are about as firm as the 360 pound woman who I watch doing the single digit (Typing wand) key entry at work, while breaking a sweat. There are fewer breasts in the world that I do NOT want to see, more than Sigourney Weaver's breasts. When you reach a certain age, your breasts sag, many leading actresses in Hollywood need to both learn and understand this. Surgery more often than not does not stall this problem, but intensifies it. However I realize I've strayed of the path of this movie.....if you dig a decent thriller, this ain't half bad. Watch it a second time or more and you catch a bunch of visuals that you missed the first time. Of which I think the director intended it.

I've seen this film 3 or 4 times and it holds up as a cool suspense thriller.  All involved give a fairly good performance.  The surprise of the film was Harry Connick, JR. who at the time had not had much exposure to film.  He was a most excellent white trash psycho.  "Squirrel covers"  <lol>

For this review I viewed the film on DVD with two other members of the Movie Pit staff, Drunken Master and Randolph Carter.  The highlight of this viewing was more about the philosophy of DM than the movie itself.  You see this was the second film of the evening and as you know DM consumes a fair amount of alcohol during the viewing of films.  This leads to words of wisdom being issued from DM's mouth at a fair clip.

Here is a rundown of key ideas that were expressed by Drunken Master during Copycat.

  • one should live ones life according to the Etch A Sketch theory of life.  For those who don't know about the Etch A Sketch theory, here it is.  Nirvana can be reached through the consumption of mass quantities of alcohol 24 hours a day 365 days a year.  This leads to the mind being unable to hold information for over 5 to 10 minutes at a time thus like the child's toy (the Etch A Sketch) the slate is wiped clean.  That is the highest attainable state for DM.

  • even though Drunken Master has seen this film numerous times it was clear to the other 2 members of the Movie Pit staff that DM was holding onto the edge of his sanity for the fear that he was going to be exposed to Sigourney Weaver's tits.

  • Drunken Master then began to enact what it would be like to have breast sex with Sigourney Weaver.  It wasn't a pretty sight.

  • then Drunken Master moved to impersonations of Sigourney Weaver using "tongue action" on her own nipples.  This continued throughout the rest of the film.  This wasn't a pretty sight either.

Overall I gave Copycat a 7 but with the added Drunken Master element, the film actually reaches a level of comedy that was never really intended.  So if you factor in DM, the film is actually a little higher, maybe a 8 or so, depending on the amount of alcohol consumed. (That would be the amount of alcohol for both DM and oneself, it's a delicate balance.)
