World Cup Fans From Japan Are A Soccer Shocker

Japan-Soccer-hats-500 (1)

Japan's soccer fans have never been shy, but this group seen at a 2010 FIFA World Cup match doesn't just push the envelope, it tears it a new one. This is what you get when cosplay culture combines with unbridled enthusiasm and then spills out all over the world stage. Insane pope posse? Berserk bowling pins? These guys make David "gotta support the team" Puddy from Seinfeld look like a rank amateur.

The "Gangrene of 4" was captured in full fanatic glory during Japan's 1-0 win over Cameroon last facepainter.jpg
Monday, June 14th. Three of them are fully decked out in what appear to be Pope Benedict's bloodstained polo pyjamas while the fourth seems to be channeling Zippy the Pinhead on an acid trip gone terribly, horribly wrong.

According to 3yen, "These Japanese pope hats read Yamato Damashi, the traditional way to say 'Japanese awesomeness.' No argument here, and whether you think the gaudy get-ups are good, bad or something for which a term hasn't yet been invented, they ARE undeniably awesome.

I actually saw a few seconds of these fans while watching a SportsChannel recap of the game, and wondered "WTF did I just see??" Seriously, forget the boring soccer, someone needs to give this group a show of their own: call it Surreality TV.

Let's just hope the Japanese team maintains their winning ways at the 2010 FIFA World Cup. I'd hate to see this quirky quartet miserable, inconsolable or drunk... or all of the above. (via 3yen and Gawker)

2010 Movies Guide(1)

The new movies of 2010. It doesn’t sound like a real year does it? 2010. More like something that appears on a title card at the beginning of a movie. It sounds like the future. It sounds like you need a crazy, wild-eyed old man and a flux capacitor to get there, but you don’t, all you need is patience.

Unfortunately, we at Movie Moron are impatient as all get out. Screw patience. We’re already looking ahead to 2010 and its silver screen offerings, and we’d like you to join us. We’ll be your crazy, wild-eyed old man. Below is a list of our 20 most anticipated movies, 2010. Pay attention, Marty…

20. Cop Out
Starring: Bruce Willis, Tracy Morgan, Seann William Scott, Adam Brody, Jason Lee
Director: Kevin Smith
Release Date: 26th February 2010
Cop Out is the first movie from Kevin Smith that he hasn’t written himself. It’ll be interesting to see how he takes on someone else’s material while no doubt retaining his distinctive voice. The concept appears to be a straightforward buddy comedy about a couple of cops but Smith should be able to elevate the familiar ground he has to cover. Maybe elevate isn’t the right word, more like bring it down to his level. Whatever he does, we can’t wait to see it and that’s why Cop Out makes the list.

19. Looper
Starring: N/A
Director: Rian Johnson
Release Date: TBC 2010
This movie is a bit of an enigma. Still in the very early stages of development, little is known about the project plot-wise, and there are no stars attached. In fact, it’s the only film on the list with no actors on board, so the fact that it even makes the list says a lot. It says we love Brick, we really like The Brothers Bloom, and we are super-stoked to see Rian Johnson tackle an ultraviolent time-travel movie. Rian Johnson builds worlds, he takes ordinary surroundings and injects them with the uncanny, and he does this in high school movies and con-men movies. What is he going to do with a sci-fi movie, a genre where such mish-mashing and world-building is de rigueur?
