A to Z Blogging Challenge: Bubba Ho-Tep

Elvis is alive and the CIA changed JFK's skin color and they are both living in an old age home in the middle of nowhere. I thought this was a fiction; what's not to believe? This movie is COMPLETELY grounded in reality. Well, at least until they introduce a mummy named Bubba Ho-Tep. Everyone knows mummies aren't real.

All Joking Aside, This Explains Elvis.

Early in the movie, we find that the real Elvis got tired of being famous and decided to pass along the title.  Then the Elvis impersonator went over the edge and we had cray jump suit Elvis eating a sandwich that took an entire loaf of bread. Doesn't knowing this make you feel better? This is now the world I choose to live in.

A Hard Comparison Not To Make.

It is really hard to not compare this movie to "Army of Darkness."  Even Bubba Ho-Tep looks like a western-themed Deadite and oddly enough not like a mummy. This isn't even just because it is Bruce Campbell either. He has range as an actor, I swear.

It just has a lot of "Army of Darkness'" physical humor. So if you are a well-adjusted person and generally accepted in polite society then you will love this movie. Tara not so much.

Tara will just have to stick to movies about blond 80s rich boy villain inspired hero movies. Her world is a sad one now that I type this out. Truly a sad world. Don't be like Tara: watch this movie now. Be a productive member of society.
