originally, the Leprechaun was something to be feared. the previews and trailers i'd see on tv terrified me and i had no idea what the movie was about. i eventually saw some of the Leprechaun movies and didn't like them much. i did like the little rhymes the leprechaun would use before he used his patented Leprechaun Magic (by ACME), but i was young and the gruesomeness hadn't become desensitized yet. his basic motive has been to get his stolen gold back and to get revenge on the thieves. now and then, he'd be motivated by love, but really, who care? also, a leprechaun bite will turn you into a leprechaun. so be careful.
anyway, for the new movie,the Leprechaun continues his love of marijuana from the movie before it. something about a leprechaun smoking weed has never quite worked for me. call me crazy, i don't care. there was also an incredibly stupid trend made in this movie for his murders: most of them had him punching people in the stomach. let me repeat that in case you weren't sure you read it right: he punches them in the friggin stomach. there was no reason for this, he just seemed to be in the right place at the right time for some stomach-punching action. it made me very mad. anyway, i'm going to spoil this masterpiece by telling you how he dies: he falls into some conveniently wet cement in a construction site that's been abandoned for a year. this is either smart cement, that chooses when it dries or somebody just happened to pour some fresh stuff in near the last part of the movie. i never saw why it was there, but it was and that's that, i guess.
LESSONS LEARNED: every horror movie has a lesson and i like to learn
1. Greed (and revenge) is bad unless someone took your stuff.
2. Apparently, magic does not come close to the amazing power of a punch in the stomach.
3. Giving things back after you stole them will save your life, but it's uncool, so don't even think about it.
AND THE BIGGY:
* Red hair, a nice smile, dressing sharply, and having a good body (in your opinion) means nothing at all to a woman on the phone if you also mention to her that you're 3'6". *
to anyone that read all of this, thank ya kindly
