    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.

    It was pretty good. Eamonn Walker did a great acting in the move but as usual Nicolas Cage sucked big time.

    Not all Ghibli films are equal. The BEST ones are the Miyazaki directed films. The ones where he was not in direct control are usually good, but not GREAT.

    Watch ALL the Miyazaki movies. You will not regret it.

    Actually, I view it as the start of the Occupy Wall St. camp. What the whole movie said was that selling crack or selling stocks is just the same.

    We watched Hanna this weekend. Formulaic but not a bad watch.

    After Spirited Away my favorite Miyazaki is Howl's Moving Castle.

    I love the opening of Lord of War. It reminds me of the Twinkie factory sequence in Koyaanisqatsi.

    Hanna was a decent but forgettable bit of fluff.

    With regard to Boiler Room, you might be simplifying the message a little bit. There are plenty of work-a-day people who sell stocks to other other work-a-day people without the (oftentimes false) premise that it will make you rich beyond your dreams. Hanna was pretty bad. It had a lot of potential, but was just never really able to turn the corner.
    I feel like if they had left out all the stuff with the Euro-hippie family it would have been a much better movie.
    I assume you mean the most recent one. Saw it over Thanksgiving last year. It was as I wanted it to be. I was very happy with it and I hope that Segel will continue to make more.

    Mine too. The kids and I just watched that yet again a few months back and laughed our asses off. (Because they're now teenagers, they'd probably kill me for revealing that.)
