    Haywire. Well that was funny, between the lack of decent dialogues, Gina Carano kicking arse, odd things happening on the background of the scenes, the list of well known starts, the crazy editing, digital cinematography and Gina Caraso kicking arse (yes it is worth to say it twice), I think it made for a decently entertaining movie, won't see it twice though. But I do have to say:

    21 Jump Street. It was a great movie. Really cracked me up, especially in the scene where Hill's character shoots something pretty funny.

    Harakiri by Masaki Kobayashi. A most devastating critique of the bushido code that puts "honor" above the dignity of human life. Tatsuya Nakadai's intense portrayal of the justly jaded ronin Hanshiro Tsugumo is not to be missed. Definitely one of Kobayashi's best works, and one of the hidden gems of Japanese cinema.

    saw the new spiderman today. It was really good except for the fact that he looked way too much like Andy Murray for me to take him seriously lol.

    Will always recall Ribisi in Boiler Room and this line

    I read this article a while back, that said that Microsoft employs more millionaire secretary's that any other company in the world. They took stock options over Christmas bonuses. It was a good move. I remember there was this picture, of one of the groundskeepers next to his Ferrari. Blew my mind. you see **** like that, and it just plants seeds, makes you think its possible, even easy. And then you turn on the TV, and there's just more of it. The $87 Million lottery winner, that kid actor that just made 20 million o his last movie, that internet stock that shot through the roof, you could have made millions if you had just gotten in early, and that's exactly what I wanted to do: get in. I didn't want to be an innovator any more, i just wanted to make the quick and easy buck, i just wanted in. The Notorious BIG said it best: "Either you're slingin' crack-rock, or you've got a wicked jump-shot." Nobody wants to work for it anymore. There's no honor in taking that after school job at Mickey Dee's, honor's in the dollar, kid. So I went the white boy way of slinging crack-rock: I became a stock broker

    Saw "Dark Shadows" a couple of days ago. Didn't think I'd like it but I did. Great cast, good story, good direction. I can't stop thinking about Bella Heathcote.

    21 Jump Street on DVD. I was surprised how funny it was. The scene with Johnny Depp was great.

    Saw TDKR on Friday. Really enjoyed it, especially since it was free and on company time.

    Finally got around to watching "Source Code". Surprisingly enjoyable. Like a darker, high-tech version of "Heaven Can Wait".

    Just saw the Dark Knight Rises last night..(was weird seeing all the security/news crews giving interviews of the patrons given the tragic incident a few days earlier.) I thought the movie was OK but there were parts of it where it seemed to drag on and caught myself losing interest. Too much incessant talking by the villain and not enough action? The fight scenes were fun though.

    Really? I thought was utterly disappointing in just about every single category... It flat out made no sense... The dialogue was pretty awful, and they explained absolutely nothing...

    Plus it was horribly predictable. You knew going into the movie, that either everyone was going to die or maybe a couple of people might survive. I really hope they don't make a sequel, because it was pretty horrendous.


    Last movie I was Dark Knight Rises - Pretty damn good, but the underwhelming nature in which Bane gets killed forces me to have to knock off a few points.

    Really? I thought it just didn't add up. It was an okay movie, but I really didn't believe the whole we stop aging at 25 thing, to me that seemed really ridiculous. Plus one thing that really bugged me about the movie was that it was a futuristic society and yet all the cars seemed to be from decades ago. They looked nothing like the cars we have today. That part made absolutely no sense to me... Shouldn't we be progressing as a society and not regressing?

    Obviously it is not an Oscar contender or anything close but the whole concept that the most valuable asset people can have is time is really good and you can apply that to our lives nowadays, of course you would have to simply accept some of the premises the movie forces on you in order to make a point: you can look young on the outside but time is still clicking ... same thing with the cars.

    On the other hand I do not think it was meant to be looked as a "futuristic society" I think it is more like a "alternative society" where Time (which in real life is kind of like the Elephant in the Room, everybody know we are getting out of time but rather not think about it...) is treated as currency, meaning somebody or something can have actual control of your time, making life more unfair, to these extents the writer and director go in order to make his point.

    I also found really interesting the idea that no matter what the good guys would do they would only be able to change the way things are for a couple of years, then things would naturally go back to how it currently is: few people have lots of money - a lot of people have little money, "Darwinian Capitalism"

    Watched the 1990 remake of NIght of the Living Dead. Thought it was very good.
    Watched Slumdog Millionaire last night.
