    Just saw the new Karate Kid, starring Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan.

    I liked it. Very nicely done. Compares well with the original.

    (Roger Ebert has a nice review of this movie -- he agreed with my assessment. :) )

    'wha?......I don't get the connection....(i did however thought it was BuLLworth with "2 L's" as in "bullshi.." haha....)

    but he's nowhere to be seen esp. since the TT landscape has grown kiddie-non-ronaldo-esque in recent months...make that, years..

    That said, word has it that "Jerome" (the Senator's trusted aide de camp) has been asking for you, most venerable amigo.

    Hello Tina Rabbit,

    How are you, ya? Dancer in the Dark is a movie directed by Lars von Trier and starring Björk. How is your quest to learn about picnic tables going?:)

    The last movie I have watched is Trainspotting, which I had not seen for a long time.

    Wow, Dancer in the Dark is a heavy film to watch, aside from the fact that there are musicals which can be weird for some people when incorporated into the scenes. Being a big fan of Bjork and her music, I like this movie so much even though this is an emotionally heavy film to experience.

    Don't know which is more puzzling: The child bride comment, or the hour at which you watched this movie. I say we poll it!

    I'm not married, Tina, ya silly girl! I do have a lovely 14 year old daughter, but her interest in spending time with her daddy is somewhat limited these days. A Taco Bell run here, a Family Guy episode there, but otherwise she's busy texting her peers or what have you.

    It's The Book Of Eli, not Joshua, or Jacob, or Craig or Bob for that matter. You can look these things up you know. :)

    But yes, it's awful, probably as bad as Mad Max III which is definitely one of the worst dystopian post-apocalyptic movies going.

    The Road is much better, but that isn't great either, the ending is just ridiculous.

    I finally got around to watching 'Enigma' with Dougray Scott and Kate Winslett about the codebreakers of WWII. Good - but not great. Was expecting more.

    Now that you know I'm not married, when is our big date? If there is some other TT fella competing for your affections, let us battle for you on the tennis court! It's not that wicked Fedace, is it?

    "I Am Love," an Italian film currently playing in NYC. A chatty film about repressed passions, feels a little dated here in a society where passions are more likely to be given expression. Best part is Tilda Swinton's performance -- she learned Italien for the role, is one of the producers, gives another fine performance.

    No Country for Old Men this past weekend. Still torn on it- good movie but left a lot of unanswered questions (plotwise and social, psychologial, etc.).

    Finally saw Avatar... meh, looked like a Final Fantasy game but had a more predictable plot.

    But wait, that technically wan't the last movie I watched. After Avatar I watched "The Invention of Lying". I thought it was funny although I wished they gave Louis CK a bigger role besides being the main character's dopey friend.

    "Smash his camera", a documentary about famed paparazzo Ron Galella, and re-watched "Heathers" last night as well. A flawed film, but filled with tons of witty dialogue and funny stuff that often flies under the radar on first or even second-viewing.

    Dear HeyCal,

    I am sorry. There is no affection between us. Please do not put me on a spot because it makes me very uncomfortable. Thank you for sharing about your martial status. I am here at TTW to learning about tennis but not seeking for love. I will no longer reply your posts related to this matter. Thank you.

    -Tina

    The Remains of the Day. The book won the 1989 Booker Prize (by Japanese-English author Kazuo Ishiguro). The story is about a life of disciplined English butler, Stevens (Anthony Hopkins). He has spent thirty years in service at Darlington Hall. It's a very sophisticated movie.

    Da-yumn, heycal! That's harsh. The funny part is, she complete serious.

    I hate to tell you heycal, but if you ask me, Tina and Fedace are a match made in Heaven - but since no one asked me, consider it opined but not stated.

    Oops. I didn't realize you would see this. How embarrassing!:oops:

    First off, please realize sometimes I say things in jest. I'm not actually trying to hook you up with another member of an internet tennis forum since I know you're not down with that - and, it's not something I typically do without first negotiating a brokerage retainer. As far as explaining myself, it's hard because, frankly, I hadn't given it much thought before I posted it. In a nutshell, it's my impression that the two of you have compatible personalities. Similar enough where you might find yourselves finishing each other's non sequiturs, but different enough where you both could learn from, grow with and compliment each other. You, Tina, exude an attractive confidence, yet possess a certain vulnerability that would allow Fedace to actually ask you out on a date without wetting himself - and as for Fedace, I don't know. But I think he could benefit from meeting a nice young lady, such as yourself, and spending a little less time posting on TT.

    So basically, it's just a hunch. Perhaps you could take the time some rainy weekend afternoon to peruse some of Fedace's thousands of posts and see if you get in touch with a kindred spirit.

    Thank you for your explanation. I just wanted to let you know Fedace is dating a girl by reading one of his posts. I think he is an introvert person. Well, if he is still single, I don't mind being a pen pal first;). We are of the same age range:)

    Did you watch Dancer in the Dark yet? How did you like it? I have another recommendation, this time it's Japanese. It's a movie called Nobody Knows.

    I'd say it appears you're interested in both.

    I'd be lying if I was saying I wasn't hurt, Tina. I've nursed my fair share of broken hearts over the years like any veteran of the dating and relationship world has, but for some reason losing out on the affections of an internet poster I've never seen nor met who lives 1000 miles away from me and whom I haven't exchanged more than a dozen posts with on a tennis board is the deepest wound of all.

    I appreciate your candor, but I will need time to heal, if I ever do...

    Enter the Dragon with Bruce Lee. I love this movie and watch it every time it comes on. I own it on dvd and still watch it when it comes on tv.

    I still crack up laughing when Bolo crushes the guy in his arms. Classic stuff that if done today would be screwed up and just end up being gross.

    Hey, Hero Sureshs

    I started becoming a movie fan while I was in school. My stress did smooth down a bit just by watching a few good movies. I love comedies the most. You might want to give it a try. All the best, my friend.

    Hey rommil, I just watched 50 % of the movie. This is a sad story. 12 years old boy skips school to take care of his sibling? :( Thank you for your suggestion though.

    Sorry if I didn't give you any warning but I made the recommendation in line with the Dancer in the Dark. It is a sad movie and I apologize if it "scarred" you in some ways. Watch Dancer in the Dark if you haven't, and I still have a couple if recommendations of less sad but more heartwarming movies. You will probably say no thank you after this hehe.
