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. Great flick. Going to see How to train your Dragon at the Drive-in while we still have one.
Haha the classic intro!

Didn't get a chance to see Brothers as all the copies were rented. Odd how they wouldn't give me the phone numbers of the late viewers.....odd indeed.

Last night I watched Everybody is fine and I found it to be very depressing - serves me right for grabbing it based on the actors and not bothering to read the back. Then I watched Brokedown Palace and again was left feeling depressed. We got through the bulk of Match Point (I didn't realize it was a Woody Allen film) and will finish it tonight. Not bad but very predictable.

Watched Julie and Julia with my wife last night and I have to say that A. that movie sucked and B. My Life in France by Julia Childs was a fascinating book and they should have just stuck with her story. They should have called it No Sex in the City.

Aww, it wasn't that bad. I thought it was a pleasent watch, though I noticed a clear juxtoposition in acting quality between the excellent Streep/Tucci and the two that played the modern couple.

I saw Couple's Retreat most recently. Disappointed. Mildly funny at best. Is it me, or is Vince Vaughn getting (gotten) stale?

Gran Torino for the nth time lol. This movie I can see over and over again. Then watched Ninja Assassin after that. It was good, I was expecting more. Have the bluray for Red Cliff and really eager to watch that.

The modern story added nothing but crappy acting and whiney commentary. An awful waste of half of a movie.

Up in the air was brilliant...also watched a favorite 'oldy but goody' of mine, Boiler room.
If you liked Boiler Room, watch Glengarry Glen Ross.
1000x better. Boiler Room has an homage to it, but
unfortunately, the performance in the homage isn't as good.
You'll see what I mean after you see it. If you like the movie,
read the play (by David Mamet). Also very good.

I can see where you're coming from, but the modern story was a critical plot device, wasn't it? I guess that goes a long way in explaining why you didn't like the movie :wink:. Beyond all of that, didn't you feel like trying your hand at a boeuf bourguignon after the movie?

So skip the "Julie" part of "Julie and Julia"?

Yes, fun movie.

Now let's get's some indie movies in here folks! Rommil, I'm talking to you and others. Enough of this New Moon and slasher flick kid stuff or typical Hollywood fare. Spread your horizons and check out the independent film section of NetFlix or your On-Demand menu!

Sleepaway Camp

Well I just got done watching an old 80's slasher flick called Sleepaway Camp. Its basically about teen campers getting killed at a summer camp by some kid. For the most part it's a good movie, the ending is kind of freaky and weird but overall it reminded me of some of the other slasher films during the 80's which I was a big fan of.

They actually have the full movie of Sleepaway Camp 2 posted on you tube, I'll probably check that out sometime soon and give an update on my thoughts.

Here is a pic from the movie(this is the antagonist)

"An Education", with Saarsgard (sp?) and Mulligan. The lead actor was satisfactorily creepy, the lead actress was a stand-out. I thought the beginning and middle of the movie were excellent, but the ending was a huge let-down.
I watched it again a few days ago, and spent the whole movie pointing out actors/actresses who'd been associated with adaptations of Austen's novels...there are so many in this film; I should make a drinking game :)

I finally watched The Blind Side last night and cried...wow did I let loose. I highly recommend it. Tonight I saw Invictus (for the third time) and recommend it as well. "Listen to your people."

Saving Private Ryan

I've lost count how many times i've watched this movie. Love it
Yes Saving Private Ryan is an excellent movie, have you seen the Band of Brothers miniseries and HBO The Pacific? The third episode of The Pacific was set in Australia, it was a great episode.

Sleepaway Camp 2 and 3

I recently watched the movie, Sleepaway Camp 2 which is about a camp counselor who kills off her campers one by one. I also watched Sleepaway Camp 3 yesterday which follows the same theme as the last installment, both great movies. I actually saw all three Sleepaway Camps on youtube, the only problem I had about the 2nd and 3rd movies is that the author cut out the nudity.

Here's the front cover from Sleepaway Camp 3(the person on the cover is the antagonist)

I haven't seen Band of Brothers yet. What did you think of it?
I dont believe he is talking about "band of brothers". There is another movie called "The brothers" which I think is just awful and cheesy.

Yes thats one of the memorable kills from the original Sleepaway Camp. In that scene Angela(the antagonist) shoves a curling iron up Judy's butt to her death.

I actually found the clip,

Thanks for the effort Quest although I think once should be enough for me. lol. You also posted about the Evil Dead series and I remember the scene where a tree ***** a woman. Would the tree be the antagonist? ;)

Oh, okay. Thanks, I have never heard of The Brothers.

^^ No problem.


I watched Silence of the Lambs and Oceans 13 over spring break. Both are excellent movies.

I haven't watched any of the Oceans series but love the Hannibal movies (actually I prefer the books but the movies were well done). Have you seen Red Dragon and Hannibal yet? Red Dragon was actually the second movie based on the book. The first starred the actor who plays Grissom on CSI (a little trivia for anyone who cares).

I have yet to watch Hannibal and Red Dragon. I will check em out. I love thrillers!

Btw I heard that the novel for Hannibal was controversial and it caused Jodie Foster to decline the role.:)

Yeah I heard that as well. Apparently there was a scene that bothered her but who knows? I still prefer her over Julianne Moore for the character though.

I watched Never Surrender. It has a whole bunch of mma fighters in it so i gave it a go. I regretted it fast but still stuck it out. This thing made Steven Seagal movies look like oscar winners. The highlight of the movie is Anderson Silva getting his head stomped against a concrete pillar.

I have Band of Brothers on dvd actually, and i watch all 10 episodes at least 3-4 times a year since it came out. Absolutely love it.

The Pacific is only being aired on April 14th here in Australia. So you could imagine that i'm counting down the days :D

How would you compare The Pacific to Band Of Brothers so far? I know it's probably hard to do so with it being set in a different environment to that of Normandy, Holland etc

it was a touching movie and moreso considering it was based on a true story..

The last movie I saw was La Strada and I ended up crying too,what a sad touching picture.:(
 
Saw "Greenberg" (slowly paced, predictable, glum, not very entertaining) and "City Island" (charming, entertaining, thought-provoking but light mood) this weekend.

"Greenberg" is actually an interesting movie, but only for people who don't care if the lead character is "likable" or not, and enjoy more challenging fair. The only predictable part is that the lead and the girl end up together after he matures a bit, etc, but a sort of forgivable sin given we knew that going in. I'm tempted to see "City Island", but worry it's sappy.

But not as sappy as I fear "The Blind Side" is. Just can't bring myself to try that one.

I'm not sure which series I like more, I've only watched 3 episodes of The Pacific, once I watch all 10 episodes then I can determine which I enjoy more. As you said it takes place in a different environment, I probably prefer the European theater more.
