Rock the Kasbah Trailer

Gatorade-Talibade-Taliban-Jihad-Drink-OriginalBill Murray is alright I guess, but I’m the most psyched about Kenny Powers and Jess from New Girl being in it.

I still feel like this movie has been done 15 times already in the last decade.  I feel like that about most movies.

    Wasn’t this a John Cusack flick? +fucking 10 on movies feeling all the same. Mad Max being probably the only worthwhile thing I’ve seen in ten years

    1. Mad max was awesome. Went to it last night. They really got the character right.

        WTF is it with people giving Mad Max a blind pass??? The movie was okay, but nothing spectacular. Short list, possibly movie spoliers:

        Full of Action: Yes
        Full of Plot Holes: Yes
        Character Development: No
        Feminist Driven Plot: Yes
        Female as Lead Character: Yes

        Max literally had nothing to do with the movie, other than be present to use the franchise name. You could’ve put any mute post apocalyptic ass-wagon in his place and the movie still would’ve been the same: Charlize Theron (devoted anti-gun tool) running and gunning in the desert with a loosely scripted agenda. The movie sold itself because it was basically a Michael Bay wet dream; no plot, just tons of over the top stupid action special effects bukkake extravaganza.

          There was’t a damn thing wrong with the original, and Charlize “Guns r like bad, mkay?!” Theron can’t hold a candle to Virginia Hey.

    He’s getting a little old for the Caddyshack schtick.

    If memory serves, the “Kasbah” was a ghetto, astonishingly packed with humanity, built on a hillside in Tunisia or Morocco. Had nothing to do with Afghanistan.

      Kasbah is just a name for medieval islamic fortresses, but they’d be heavily populated because inside the fortress walls was where the protection was. Kasbah then took to mean any heavily populated area (ironically, ghetto is the term from the same era where jews were forced to live in isolation in huge metropolitan areas) in islamic lands. So, Algeria, India, Morocco, Tunisie, wherever, they got Kasbahs.

  5. What will probably ruin this movie for me is that I once drove from Jalalabad to Kabul (BAF) with one other soldier in a Toyota hi-lux in December of 2004. Bill Murray should have called me in as a consultant.

      Yeah but if Zooey Deschanel went to Afghanistan in real life, she would totally go missing.

    If you had briefed me on the plot before showing me this trailer, I may have wanted to see it. Now? Literally nothing in the world could interest me less than this.
