Thumb movies? Weird, but funny.

January 16th, 2008

Steve Oedekerk is weird. He is the warped brain behind the “thumb” movies. These are a series of silly short films that use “thumbs” (seriously, like hand digits) as the heads of characters/actors. He digitally adds human eyes & mouths to make these “thumbs” come alive to act out the film. The process is hard to explain, but they are so stupid…they are funny.Thumb Wars

Our family found out about these movies through our local library (gotta love library movies). We own Steve’s martial arts comedy Kung Pow (a second one is in production). Now, we know that Steve has continued with his cinematic insanity through the “thumb” movies. If you have an afternoon free and want to watch something so totally stupid that it makes you laugh, check out:

Bat Thumb, Thumbtanic, Frankenthumb, Blair Thumb, Thumb Wars: The Phantom Cuticle, Godthumb.

From what I have read, Steve is also working on a Matrix parody entitled: Thumbatrix

Yup, so stupid they are funny. I am sure that I burn brain cells every time we watch them.

Other works by Steve Oedekerk are: Ripley’s Believe it or Not (in production), Bruce Almighty, Evan Almighty, Ace Ventura, Pet Detective and Patch Adams, and Jimmy Neutron

    Nope, never seen those. I am a big Seth Green fan though. He is just too funny. Robot Chicken is so over the top. *grin*

    How awesome is THAT?! I wish we had something like that here. Of course, in Texas we would want to see if the Longhorn saw its sweat dripping or something. That way we would know if summer was going to go into November and be 100+ degrees.

    As for eating a whole cow, that is a regular event here in Texas. You haven’t lived until your stomach bursts from eating smoked brisket. Yeeehah! Thems good vittles!
