    Thanks dak95_00.

    I'll check them out. I want to see Avengers (dying to see it), but think it might be too intense for my 4yr old.

    Is this the one where the guy was a musician and he ended up working in funerals? Initially I thought the plot was weird but turned out to be an interesting and well done movie.

    Replicant. Van Damne. But is he really 5'11" and 180lbs.?
    I seem to remember him shorter and much lighter, like 165lbs.
    His same spinning backkick is getting old.

    I saw the Woody Allen Film in NYC, safe haven for him. The Angelika Theatre was running it on three screens, literally starting a showing about every half hour. He often shows only in New York and perhaps LA for a few weeks before going to general distribution.

    just saw unstrung. as much people rip on donald young for being an underachiever, that movie put things in perspective - how every other junior at Kalamazoo that year, except Querrey, would kill to be ranked in the top 100.

    re-watched Senna as well. great movie for a racing fan, and even for sports fan in general, to see the kind of drive and passion the man had.

    Strictly Ballroom. I can't quite second the popular screening of this film as a mockumentary of sorts--Luhrmann love and respect for the subject is unmistakable throughout, and he does celebrate the stereotypes with flying colors in the end--but I do think this is the best of his Red Curtain Trilogy. A surefire crowd-pleaser.

    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

    Pretty good movie until the end.

    Popped 'Minority Report' in recently. Pre-cogs had Rosol in 5 - amazing. :)

    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 "The Artist".. HOOOLY SHIIAT.. i can't believe how this crap movie won so many Oscars.

    Worst movie I've seen in the last few years along with "Contagion".

    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.
