Guy Ritchie enters the Halls of Shat with the 1998 feature film debut that revealed an unsanitized London to hip American teens and twentysomethings: “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.”

We all expected the comparisons of Ritchie to Quentin Tarantino, but none of us anticipated where the conversation would go after that: Ash’s personality trait test, Big D’s tips on knocking people out, and rumors of anal beads helping a chess master cheat.

Is “Lock, Stock” perfect? It might lack women characters, drag at parts and have so much English slang it should be labeled sci-fi, but the Shat Crew can’t deny Jason Statham, Lenny McLean and Vinny Jones made the movie a lot of fun.

Plot Summary: “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” Eddy (Nick Moran) convinces three friends to pool funds for a high-stakes poker game against local crime boss Hatchet Harry (P.H. Moriarty). Harry cheats and Eddy loses, giving him a week to pay back 500,000 pounds or hand over his father’s pub. Desperate, Eddy and his friends wait for their neighbors to rob some drug dealers, then rob the robbers in turn. After both thefts, the number of interested criminal parties increases, with the four friends in dangerously over their heads.
