Afroninja: Can’t Be Faded

July 30, 2008

You know we here at Us Versus Them support our heroes.  You’ve got to keep up with where they end up.  So you need to peep out the world famous Afroninja.

I mean you have to assume that the dude had some sort of skills since he came into the video with not one, but two pair of nunchucks.  You gotta love the commentary too.  “Are you okay?  No…he’s not.”

Well, that dedication to trying to still rock his nunchuck routine after he whooped his own ass made him internet famous.

Now he’s got himself a good man haircut and apparently also a legit job.

That cat still looks crazy to me, but he’s flipped it into a real movie script about the Afroninja.  Complete with dual nunchucks.

That still looks ridiculous.  Could be funny though, but how do you stretch a 10 second mistake into a feature film?  Probably going to be a sci-fi channel special.

Man, maybe we could get Star Wars Kid to be in the next star wars movie.  He could be Anaken Skywalker’s secret apprentice, Darth Cheetoe or something.

Maybe not.


Tropic Thunder: This Looks Hilarious

May 27, 2008

Robert Downey Jr. is in the movie of the year. No, not Iron Man…Tropic Thunder. Wait hear me out on this. Here’s Robert Downey Jr.

Everyone knows RDJ. But here he is in Tropic Thunder as Kirk Lazarus:

Offended by his black face performance? Sure, maybe at first, but somehow it works. Here’s the joke, Downey Jr is playing a white man who is playing a white man who is cast as a Black man in a movie. So he commits hard and stays in character no matter what. Seriously, you’ve got to watch this

That looks like it is worth seeing.


Classic Material: Doc Holliday in Tombstone

March 27, 2008

Val Kilmer is basically a garbage actor. Well, I’m kind of a bullshit movie goer to so we’re even. But I aint never seen the dude in a movie I was all that impressed it. Well, with one HUGE exception: Tombstone. It was just a great movie. My favorite line is the one about the “music lover.” Doc learns that full a good lesson.

That “I have two guns….one for each of ya” is just brilliant. It really doesn’t get any better. But Val was hot throughout the movie. Here’s a montage of other scenes. If you’ve watched the movie, then you’ll feel me.

I love Doc. Dude was just better and was a complete dick to boot. Reminds me of someone I know. Pretty sure I’m related to Holliday on my mama side or was that Rick Flair? I can’t keep up. Anyway, Doc had what all the good ones have: a ride or die woman at his side. Good stuff. I love the ladies.

Yo Joe! Snake Eyes is Back?!?!

March 21, 2008

Growing up I was more of a Transformers guy than a G.I. Joe guy, but there was always one thing I remembered. Whenever it was time to play G.I. Joe out in the woods, everyone wanted to be Snake Eyes.


He dressed in all black, he never said a word, he was a freaking ninja. A ninja with a gun. Talk about unfair. Jumping out of trees, sneaking up on people, you get ninja stars as standard equipment, then if things got too gangster…he’d just shoot your ass like everyone else.

So the new G.I. Joe movie is coming out and Ray Park, the dude who played Darth Maul, one of the other famous bad asses of movie history is playing Snake Eyes in the movie.


That is pure Batman meets whoop that ass right there.


Who The Hell is Flo-Rida?

February 22, 2008

I’ll be straight out with you. When I saw him launch his first single with T-Pain, I knew two things. First, I didn’t trust him. Second, no matter what I think, the song is going to be ridiculously popular.

“Low” is one of those songs that get’s stuck in your head all day. “Shawty had those Apple Bottom Jeeeeanns, and dem boots wit da furrrrrrr.” DAMN YOU T-PAIN. I wish I could quit you! The song is hot, those damn “Step Up 2 Da Streets” clips in that video are completely off key and unnecessary by the way. By the way, how many times are they going to make that movie? Step Up, Honey, You’ve Been Served, Stomp the Yard, hell even Drumline. Lake said it best, we know how all these movies go. A hot headed dancer from “da skreets” shows up with his “mad skillz”, but needs to understand “real/old school/classic” in order to take his “Ill Crizzew” to a “Whole nudda level”. Of course the climax of the movie is some sort of “throwdown crew battle dance/step/play your instrument while looking mad”-off. Seriously, that shit ain’t hard, you aren’t a gangster…you’re still a dancer.

Back to Flo-Rida. I was ready to write him off as a one-hit wonder until I heard this:

I mean my goodness. Listen to that joint with some good speakers too. Timbaland laid some naaaaasty bass underneath that thing. Timbo’s wild “ficky-ficky errr-errr-errr” hasn’t sounded that hot over a beat since Aaliyah’s second album. He flipped Rihanna’s Umbrella-ella-ella into an Ella-Ella-Elevator, but I’m not mad at him for that.

Look, Flo Rida is never going to be in the discussion for “Top 5, Dead or Alive” with lyrics like these:

My first flo stopped on a gold digging woman
Money cash flow all big faced hundreds
Frontin’ on the pole got them d-boys running
Shorty got both broke can’t see what’s comin’
Wear them apple bottoms, wear them apple bottoms honey
Dolce and Gabbana and she get it from her mommy
Louie, Von D ,Gucci, Fendi and Armani
See the carrots on her wrist now she pimps bugs bunny
Used to date Kanye now she want me
While I got my juice wanna take my OJ
It ain’t her birthday with her name on a cake
If I ever pay for pu**y, grade A”

Bottom line. It bumps in the truck. Check it out.



Damn, I didn’t know T-Pain was on “Low”… I thought for sure that was Nelly on the hook. Terrible. But like all things T-Pain, it’s literally good and terrible all at once. Let me tell you when you hear that “Apple bottom Jeaaaaan, boots with da fuuuuur” things get poppin in the club. Perfect club banger.  And what about that Travis Barker remix?

I hate to admit it, but T-Pain is a hit maker…dead up.

February 8, 2008

In a previous post, I put up this picture of Jamie Foxx and asked if he was channeling Adebisi from OZ, or Tyrone Biggums from Chappelles Show.


Well we have our answer…


It was Tyrone Biggums.

By the way, if you would like to know the image in my mind that goes with the title, here it is…


Yeah, that is how I felt when I saw that picture of Jamie.  This better be an award winner, otherwise Jamie’s just playing himself for no good reason.  I guess the character he is playing is a schizophrenic and homeless, I guess Jamie is subscribing to the fact that troubled characters (Forrest Gump, Rain Man, Radio, I am Sam) get Oscar nods.


Classic Material: Revenge of the Nerds

January 31, 2008

No need to set this one up. This is just a great movie.

Dude, whoever came up with the sorority name “Omega Moos” is an evil genius. So good. Damn, please note the 80’s use of the blatant stereotyping. Of course, that’s what makes the movie so funny, but it’s still pretty terrible, especially how ill they were to Asians back then. Anybody remember “Long Duck Dong” from Sixteen Candles?


I mean, they used to diss Asians without any hesitation whatsoever. Ugly. Maybe I’ll post that cat up later. Anyway, if you’re going to go Nerds, you’ve got to show their show with LaMar on the ahm…..(pause and gulp) mic. That hurt me.

The 80’s man…so terrible, but in a good way.

Classic Material: Michael Corleone

January 25, 2008

This is the best movie ever made, period. Michael Corleone is the best character ever created and this is just the beginning of his rise to power.

Love it.

Classic material: My office hours are from 9 to 5

January 17, 2008

Oh, just one of the many pleasures I’ve had in cinema. If you didn’t see The Five Heartbeats, then you’ve definitely missed out and you should peep this ill scene just on GP. If you remember this joint and love it as I do, then sit back and enjoy the bidniz acumen of Big Red… ha

That Bird, he was so smug.. Oh but Red learned him a thing or two. LOL.. Classic.

Damn this is going to be Hot

December 21, 2007

“Nothing in his pockets but knives and lint”.  Now that’s focus right there.

They got it just right with the revival of Batman as “The Dark Knight”.

Because this:


is a far cry from this:


Nice tie…

and definitely no where close to this:
