Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Ian: Equal... in death's eyes? All of us? How can you say that? Dude, think it through: Charlie Manson, made it to 70, Osama, still kicking. Pimps, vice presidents, walking around, all the atrocities they've committed, they're alive and well. These two girls, never done shit to anybody, they don't get to make it to 18. Where's the fucking equality in that? 

Today is the 10th anniversary of the third Final Destination movie! I miss this franchise so much - come on Hollywood! These things were made from the change dug out of the New Line couches and raked in almost 700 million dollars worldwide, and that's just ticket-sales - no doubt home video multiplies those numbers by infinity. Yes yes the fifth movie had a terrific ending that could be An Ending, but I don't even care, I want more from Death's Grand Design.

Anyway the third movie's a good one, right? Not as good as the best in the series, Part 2, but solidly solid. The roller-coaster opening is a hoot, it's the one with the tanning-bed scene (scored to "Love Rollercoaster" hilariously), and I love the multiple endings with the subway trick. Oh and it has the immensely likable Mary Elizabeth Winstead & Ryan Merirman as leads. Speaking of the latter, as long as we're here...

Including this here second picture of Mr. Battle is probably cheating the poll over to his favor but come on, clearly we need to look at that picture. Clearly.

First giveaway in Final Destination 5: Early in the film, one of the characters says a girl reminds him of Lisa Loeb. When he said that, my inner voice whispered: "Where the hell did that come from?"

No, the third one is when I stopped watching them. That tanning bed scene was pure misogyny in cinematic form.
