American Psycho!

"I like to dissect girls. Did you know I'm utterly insane?" Patrick Bateman smiles as he carelessly tells this to Paul over dinner. It's too bad Paul wasn't completely with it, otherwise he might have avoided the things to come later in the evening. American Psycho floored me when I first saw it. I wasn't expecting much at all, and instead, I saw a brilliant movie unfold before my eyes. It's more of a horror/drama than just a plain ol' horror flick.

By the time they get back to Patrick's apartment, Paul is completely drunk and wondering why the floor is covered with newspapers and why Patrick is wearing a raincoat... gee I wonder. Patrick then busts out an amazing speech about Huey Lewis and the News:

These guys ROCK.

"Their early work was a little too new wave for my tastes, but when Sports came out in '83, I think they really came into their own, commercial and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consimante professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He's been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far much more bitter, cynical sense of humor. In '87, Huey released this, Fore, their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is "Hip to be Square", a song so catchy, most people probably don't listen to the lyrics. But they should, because it's not just about the pleasures of conformity, and the importance of trends, it's also a personal statement about the band itself."

And with that, it's time for Patrick to go to work on Paul.


I've always loved cheesy 80's music, and Huey Lewis always ranked right up there with Rick Astley. So when I saw him give that incredible speech in American Psycho just before brutally chopping Paul to death, I damn near fell out of my chair laughing. It's really a brilliant movie with tons of classic lines. So if you haven't seen it, do yourself a favor and check it out if for no other reason than to see him give speeches about Huey Lewis or Whitney Houston just before he kills somebody. You won't regret it (but whatever you do, stay the hell away from the sequel). And now, here's a tiny Flash tribute of mine to Patrick Bateman... a Huey Lewis fan and a swell guy.

Keep in mind, this guy is set to play the new Batman. Kinda makes you wonder what he's gonna do to any criminals that get in his way, eh?
