Now, you’ve got a choice for this holy day. You can either watch Ash Wednesday–about two brothers (Edward Burns and pre-LOTR Elijah Wood) in Hell’s Kitchen trying to evade the Irish mob –or Army of Darkness–featuring a modern guy named Ash with one hand who finds himself transported into a ghoul-infested year 1300 with only his boom-stick and his know-how to get him back home. Your call.
How to Commemorate
- Go to church and get ashes on your forehead.
- Reconnect with forgotten Irish relatives.
- Quote Bruce Campbell. For example:
- Hail to the king, baby.
- This is my boom stick!
- Good. Bad. I’m the guy with the gun.
