1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I'm glad someone else but me watches this. Young Diane Lane = win. Do yourself a favor and skip the "sequel". It's bullshit. [​IMG]

    I kinda liked Inception, but felt it was nothing spectacular. It had good acting, the writing was passable, and the plot was different, but fun. Nothing wrong with it.... it just certainly never lived up to the hype. I view it in a similar way as I view Avatar (though I liked Inception more).

    Last couple of weeks:

    - Resident Evil 4 (whatever it's called) - awful (and I liked 1 and 3).
    - Lake Tahoe - wonderful, slow, engrossing and touching.
    - Undertow - beautiful scenery but not as good as the reviews suggest (or maybe you just need tolerance for ghost stories).

    Just received my DVD of Hernandez' Raging Sun, Raging Sky but am waiting for the right mood for more than 3 hours of zero dialogue, no coherent narrative, visually arresting, sex-laden, mythical/spiritual art house... Having said that, if it has anything as mind-bendingly beautiful as the staircase scene in its predecessor Broken Sky, it will be more than worth it.

    Eff'ing love these movies. David O. Russel has made two of my favorite movies over the past 15 years, Three Kings and I Heart Huckabees.

    What didn't you like about it?

    Eh, nothing in particular really drove me to hate. The whole thing just seemed so non-sensical once you put it into a high school style genre. I kept waiting for JGL to morph into some sort of latter day Humphrey Bogart.

    finally watched inception. meh.

    Sorry you didn't like it. What I really like is that it is totally original. Beyond that, it is executed very well. Watching an architect construct a dreamscape was really neat, especially on the big screen. If you haven't seen this, you should:

    Three Days Of The Condor (1975)

    Gritty 70s political thriller. They don't make em' like this anymore. I really loved Max Von Sydow's character, and the ending of the movie was strangely prescient.

    So what is the difference between "Based on a true story" (which I never see anymore, or at least not often) and "Inspired by true events" which seems to be the case most often.

    My netflix watch instant activity since November. I watch most of these while I'm working, I keep them on in the background and don't pay a ton of attention to them. This is why some of them were not even finished.

    Not enough noise. Again 19/20 of those were watched while I was working. I treat them more like books on tape than movies.

    Oh, so they don't really belong in this thread. [​IMG]
    Listening to movies is not really watching them.

    Also, just re-watched "Life". Awesome doc series. I had originally bought it for my father 2 or so years ago, but accidentally bought the American version. Couldn't stand more than 3 minutes of it. Oprah managed to turn a beautiful and educational series into a mind-numbing annoyance-fest.
