yeah, i dont see a need to go out of my way to watch it again, it was pretty memorable just from one viewing. but if it was on id watch it. im still trying to figure out which characters story line i thought was saddest, i lean towards the mother.

If parents aren't going to teach it then they should be teaching it in schools.

Saw it too. It's pretty infuriating, in fact I started forwarding thru around mid-point. There are scientific studies about this sort of thing. Pretty incredible.

This one is just based on stupidity. How can you possibly think a cop is going to call and ask you to search someone?

Here is a perfect example of how a florescent jacket is enough:

Watched Hit and Run last night, it was ok. Not really anything you start breaking out laughing but it had some pretty cool cars in it which made it watchable.

watched requiem for a dream last night. thought it was an excellent movie, but terribly sad. one of the saddest movies i have seen in a very long time.
Too bad.

I agree.

Watched Zombieland (again), The Other Guys (again) and now Law Abiding Citizen (again).

I saw the Silverlinings playbook a couple of days ago (unfortunately living in LATAM, the schedule is rather late all the time). I'm still in awe of what Jennifer Lawrence is able to do, even in such an obvious awkward role for her age.

I'm also watching Knocked Up right now. I always think it's interesting when there are certain "cliques" in the hollywood branche, like when one director always casts the same people or the same people star toegether in different movies (for example Seth Rogen/Jonah Hill/the other guys whose names I'm unsure of). I also think it's funny when characters have the real life name of the actor (in Knocked Up, Jonah Hill is Jonah; Jason Segel is Jason, etc.).

your first point, i think its not so much that its a clique, its more a group of people who enjoy working together and have the power and opportunity to do so.

your second, i find amusing as well.

Yea I some how squeezed in ironing. I had never sat down and watched a single one of them all the way through...due to them being 5 hours or so with commercials so I had only seen bits and pieces, mostly from the second one.

All 3 were good. I think I liked 1 the most with 2 a very slight second. I know i'll be doing back story reading at work tomorrow. All together they are still not as good as once upon a time in america, but I am glad I spent 10 hours today watching them.

Yeah, probably a better description.

Once upon a time in america...the long version. The short one is garbage and does not make sense as sergio leon had pictured it.

Saw Once Upon a Time in America and it was very good. Such a sweeping epic, heartbreaking music, hell--heartbreaking everything.

The only thing I didn't like is that because I still have an old-ass projection TV, the ending didn't make sense because I couldn't make it out. Had to read on Wikipedia what happened which lessened the impact but still wow.


Watched Aliens last night.

Now that I've seen Prometheus, Alien and Aliens (In that order, no less) I feel like I can see what Prometheus was trying to do but man... they really need another prequel. Also, Prometheus really confirms my belief that I formed after the Star Wars prequels... basically don't do a prequel for a series that's set way into the future decades after the originals. Our conceptualization of the future and technology makes the prequels lack continuity, I think.

And while I'm not making any revelations or adding anything new... Alien, Aliens then Prometheus for Aliens films. May have enjoyed Aliens a tad more than Alien, however, but Alien was a better movie, needed less cheap thrills.

Have the Quadrology box set, will watch the other two this week, maybe. Then, the AvP franchise (seen the first satisfied.gif )

also, going back to requiem, the music was hauntingly great.
