While at Scott's place we caught this great movie on Bravo (and I'm not even being sarcastic.... well... not really....): Leprechaun, Back 2 tha Hood.

Just looking at the title I knew it was going to be great, and it was. I never realized that the Leprechaun had ever been to the hood before. He definitely speaks like he's an Irish FOB. But anyway... that's not the point.

The point is that whatever sick genius came up with this idea is just that -- a sick genius. Who else would come up with a way to make random thugs match up against a thousand year old evil Leprechaun? Even I wouldn't be as bold as to say I could come up with something that crazy. The impressive part is that they even did a pretty good job coming up with the screenplay. And why wouldn't I be? These Hollywood magicians were able to come up with ways to integrate hydraulics (including some 3 wheel motion), hollow point bullets, and weed into final battle. For a film that's also known as Leprechaun 6, the story was pretty tight.

Now I'm not saying that this is the best movie in the world, because it isn't. Not even worth a rental. But if you're flipping through channels late at night and looking for some funny action, you should at least check it out. C'mon. Just look at the title. It *has* to be good.
