If the girl had done that, about a half dozen people could have avoided ruining their lives.

It just made people look like idiots that they could fall for something as stupid as that....

They were. Did you ever read the stories about it? I remember them from the time it happened and was just dumbfounded that anyone could be this idiotic.

I didn't. I knew it was a true story. Maybe I will read up on it. I just was watching last night dumbfounded that they could fall for that shit. Don't the watch The First 48? Ask for a lawyer. It took that lady manager 1 1/2 hrs to call her supervisor and confirm that he had not clue what was going on...Amazing.

Gosford Park. Hadn't seen this in a long time. I had forgotten what an excellent cast it has. Charles Dance, Maggie Smith, Michael Gambon, Emily Watson, Clive Owen, Stephen Fry, Helen Mirren, Richard Grant, Derek Jacobi, Kelly McDonald. Great writing and directing too.

Separate Lies is also good. Emily W is in it.

I will check it out. She's been great in most things I've seen her in. Breaking the Waves especially.

Watching Predator. Enjoyable and fun movie. The one-liners are great.

solid summation. brendan gleeson is awesome.

Yup, Brendan Gleeson is great.

Intended to watch Blue Velvet, but was more in the mood for an Adventureland-type of movie. So I watched Youth in Revolt. Quite good. Blue Velvet--and David Lynch's other great movies I haven't watched yet-- in the next of couple days.

Blue Velvet is the best David Lynch movie. No contest.

Youth In Revolt was underrated, though. Not surprised it flopped as they tried to market it as Superbad part 2 when it was something much darker and stranger.

Hm. I have to admit that I haven't watched any of David Lynch's movies (at least not knowingly) so far. I planned on watching his very good ones in order--more or less-, beginning with his earliest. Not sure whether it's the wisest decision to begin with the best. But hey, we'll see how I'll enjoy the conceding movies.

Yeah, it's pretty good. I generally have a thing for those types of movies. Very fond of the Jesse Eisenberg,-Jonah Hill,-Michael Cera,-Seth Rogen-etc.-clique. Superbad was great, but I agree that Youth in Revolt has quite a different mindset. I enjoyed seeing Michael Cera, at least partially, in a role that's not very natural to him.

I would say he's made two classic movies: Blue Velvet and Mullholland Drive. Add the Twin Peaks series (not the movie, which is awful) and you've seen him at his best. That said, Eraserhead, The Elephant Man, Wild at Heart, Lost Highway and Inland Empire are all worth watching if you are really into his steez

Some of his movies date. But, there are still scenes in Wild at Heart that take my breath away.

I remember attending the first showing with my wife. She despised every scene, and I thought, at the time, it a work of genius. The music/drama match (Strauss' Four Last Songs) was worthy of the Palme d'Or by itself.

I'd place WAH ahead of both Blue Velvet and Elephant.

Quite a few today. Rewatched Youth in Revolt. Then on to Zack and Miri Make a Porno (also watched before), followed by The Wackness and finally Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist.
