Overnight Open Thread (Mætenloch)

Welcome to holiday Monday. Hope everybody is ready for the real start of the week. I'm still traveling so expect the ONT to be up a little later and a little skimpier than usual this week.

Milestone: Israel suffered no Islamic terror attacks within its borders in 2009
This is the lowest level since the second intifada began in 2000 and is due to the successful tactics the Israelis developed to stop Palestinian terrorism and their constant adaption since then:

This included going after terrorist leaders and technical specialists, and either capturing or (failing that) killing them. Raids and air attacks were made against buildings used by the terrorists, and tight security on Israelis borders were instituted. This last measure crushed the Palestinian economy, which put popular pressure on the terrorists to stop their attacks, and promise to keep it that way.

So terrorism as a tactic can be defeated with a combination of border security and going after the terrorist leaders. I grade this as Israelis 1, terrorism experts 0.

Even Cliff Clavin is Compaigning for Brown
And he hates dirty hippies too. Here's what he said at a rally for Brown:

This isn’t the Democratic Party of our fathers and grandfathers. This is the party of Woodstock hippies. I was at Woodstock — I built the stage. And when everything fell apart, and people were fighting for peanut-butter sandwiches, it was the National Guard who came in and saved the same people who were protesting them. So when Hillary Clinton a few years ago wanted to build a Woodstock memorial, I said it should be a statue of a National Guardsman feeding a crying hippie.

Depends on what you mean by "chubby." Men can carry a lot more excess poundage than women can before being considered "fat." I've never been attracted to skinny men, much prefer the big beefy type. But there is, of course, a limit!

42 @29: " if you are a true Star Wars geek then you know that the storm troopers are all clones of the same guy, right? Or am I remembering it wrong."
That's correct under the new history set down in the prequels. Prior to that, Lucas' notes and the novelizations had them as elite troops taken out of the Imperial army. Yeah, I lived with a 'Wars geek for a couple of years in college and have seen way more information that I ever cared to about it. The concept drawings were pretty cool, though.

The CA tire nazis will take care of that for you.

I've never been attracted to skinny men, much prefer the big beefy type.

I was at the Nordy's at Topanga the other day and saw some uber skinny guys with their (I think) girlfriends. They were tall, but ridiculously skinny. And both were wearing skinny jeans. I like my men lean, not bean poles. There seems not to be a happy medium out here.

Stewart was also highly decorated for combat-he flew20 combat missions over Germany, won the Distinguished Service Medal, 2 Distinguished Flying Crosses,4 Air Medals, and retired as a Brigadier General in the Air Force reserves. . What a difference the men of Hollywood were at that time, compared to today. Clark Gable, Eddie Albert, Tyrone Power and Charles Bronson all served with distinction, and there were more that I can't remember. What a sorry bunch of poofs we have in Hollywood today.

Is that the scientific-y place that puts together the Frankenstein-esque "Adam" run by the chick professor? With the very hot Marc Blucas as one of the soldiers and Buffy's love interest? I really liked Marc Blucas...can't remember his character's name...but that whole plot was kind of weird. I don't think I cared of it. That's right around where Buffy started jumping the shark.

78 I'm looking at the episode list for season 4 to refresh my memory. I haven't watched Buffy since that season originally ran. The episode "Fear Itself" was one of my favorites, especially the ending, if I'm remembering the right one. (Anya in a pink bunny suit?) (The demon is really tiny and Xander makes fun it, then Giles says, "Xander, don't taunt the tiny demon" or something like that.)

Was the season 3 finale the one that involves Angel, Buffy, a kiss, a portal and a sword?

You’d think that the auto “rescuer in chief” would be careful not to bad-mouth any truck.
Especially an American truck.
Especially a General Motors truck.
Especially an American-rescued General Motors truck.
Especially a 2005 GMC Canyon truck — that’s a pretty hardcore American truck — made by a company with problems to its core American truck-maker GM.
Brown’s fair game; his truck isn’t.
And for this president with an incredible tin ear, this very line of attack tells you all you need to know about a leader who can’t even distinguish between the two.
I frankly think it’s his arugula thing all over again. Remember that one during the campaign?
He’s talking to a bunch of union folks about the soaring price of everything, says he feels their pain at what’s been happening at the grocery store. And just when I think he’s going to start bemoaning paying more cash for corn flakes, he goes on about forking over more green for arugula — off the charts.
And I’m thinking to myself: “Self, this guy’s off his rocker.”
Never mind I’ve since come to discover that arugula is an important veggie staple. It stapled an image in my mind: This guy’s mind is somewhere else.
Arugula matters. GM trucks do not.
Bad form, big guy.
It doesn’t prove Scott’s out of touch. It only confirmed… you are.

97 Rum, season 3 finale is the high school graduation one, where Angel leaves at the end of the episode, he turns and walks off into the fog.
And yes, the tiny demon was funny, especially when Giles translates the caption under the demon at the end and it says "actual size."

100 Buffy didn't jump the shark, it jumped the lesbian.

I'd forgotten about that! Blech. Dumb story line. Xena as a great show until it went lesbian, too.

I stopped watching the season after Dawn was intro'd. I hated Dawn. Dumbest character ever. I think I tuned in to the last season, because it was the last season, just to watch the series finale. And now, looking back, I realize Caleb is the uber hot Nathan Fillion.

138 Well Adrian, I agree that after Willow went lesbian she was less likeable as a character. Though you are right for absolute suckage it was Dawn.
And Arsenic and Old Lace is another excellent Cary Grant movie. I can't say it enough, I love Cary Grant movies. And now I want to do a marathon watching of them as soon as I get through with Buffy. I only got Buffy through season 5 since the last 2 seasons were horrible.

Posted by: ParanoidGirlInSeattle at January 18, 2010 11:22 PM (RZ8pf)

139 Season 4 has "Hush" which is the all time best episode ever in the history of Buffy. I stopped watching Buffy after the second season of the Angel spin off started. When they only did 2 crossovers I didn't see any point in watching Buffy.

I've never thought Obama was nearly as savvy or charismatic as people claim he is.

I also really liked the stuff with Elizabeth Rohm in seasons 1 and 2 but I guess they fired her for being a lesbian.

As to Dollhouse, I was a little surprised by who the big bad was. Loved Alan Tudyk (Wash) as Alpha, though, but that was a total red herring. I'm sad the last episode of Dollhouse is airing in a week and a half. It was just getting good, too.

"Is the GOP Worthy?"

(Moved here from the other thread. Sorry.)

Lately
the question of the GOP's ability to blow this movement has come up a
lot. Folks here have questioned the worthiness of the GOP to even lead
(and many slammed Michael Steele for not being very sure himself). So
there's an interesting bit of homework for the Moron horde. Go here, at BigGovernment to see the article by Michael S. Rulle Jr. on the question of "worthiness."

Follow the link there, or use this one, to grab the pamphlet published by Thad McCotter, who's apparently heading the Republican House Policy Committee.

Let's
find out what the House Policy Committee is up to, and if it's good,
let's hold them to it. If not, then we may have a problem.

WTR, I don't think Rohm is a lesbian, I don't know. But when her character was fired in LO, she replied out of the blue "Is this because I'm a lesbian?" even though they had never mentioned that about her character before.

Also, I strongly, strongly recommend Angel Season 5. Connor almost nowhere to be seen, all the soap opera stuff from 3 and 4 is gone. Angel literally does a deal with the devil to wipe everyone's memories of the past two years and start over, it was the writers basically acknowledging how much they sucked and going in a whole new direction, and it was great.

Posted by: Adrian at January 18, 2010 11:43 PM (HqFA1)

187 Buffy did jump the lesbian shark. Willow? really?
Agreed with Xena doing the same thing. Fortunately, I stopped watching both shows before they got to that point. Pandering to the fans usually ruins a show. Besides, it was insulting to strong female characters. If a woman is to be a warrior, she has to be gay, too? Oi.

At least Hercules didn't jump the gay shark. Iolaus and Hercules? Not happening. Better show, too.

193 I'm sad the last episode of Dollhouse is airing in a week and a half.

Allegedly the series will continue with online episodes set in the post-apocalyptic era they showed in The Attic.

I was wondering why Joss keeps going to Fox, too; they just cut his budgets and then cancel him, he should do something on cable. R-rated whedonverse would be the shiat.

197 Angel literally does a deal with the devil to wipe everyone's memories
of the past two years and start over, it was the writers basically
acknowledging how much they sucked and going in a whole new direction,
and it was great.

Was that when he "took over" Wolfram and Hart? And I did like the whole angle bringing in Fred from where Lorne was from. And Wesley joining the team. The triangle between Gunn, Wesley and Fred. That stuff was actually more fun. The series finale was heartbreaking, esp when Wesley says to Illyria, "Lie to me."

There's an episode with Summer Glau (her first with Whedon) that I love. I think it's called "Waiting in the Wings." She's a ballet dance trapped in time doing the same ballet over and over. It was a great episode.

199 Jimmy's two best westerns were Cheyanne Social Club with Hank Fonda, who served in the Navy during WW2, on a Destroyer in the Pacific. I forgive him his lifelong leftist tendencies, he came when it counted and put his ass on the line.
The other was Winchester 73, where he played a darker charector. I really miss Jimmy.

Bonus points for using the color scheme used by Ace. Black, with a few hints of blood. (Red, I mean.)

Hmmm. Borrowing from the " Wide Awakes" concept. Interesting. I think someone tried a website for that right after the election in 2006 (or was that later?). Oh, it's at wideawakes.net.

Not sure why they are making Teddy Roosevelt one of their main quotables, but what the hell. He was right about a lot of stuff. Even if he grew Government. But that makes me nervous.

We went in the rain on purpose. The park was pretty much empty. (Rainy days are the best time to go if you just want to go on rides.) Indiana Jones wait was 10 minutes. Space Mountain was 15. No line for Dumbo. I love going to Disneyland in the rain, but the down pours were too much. Plus there were mini lakes all over the park due to lack of drainage systems.

saved the same people who were protesting them. So when Hillary Clinton
a few years ago wanted to build a Woodstock memorial, I said it should
be a statue of a National Guardsman feeding a crying hippie.

Sorry, there is only one Catwoman, Julie Newmar!!! And when the first Batman movie came out, I was dissappointed that it was a dark movie. I liked the campiness. Although I was a kid when that series ran, I watched it every week and loved it.

Had today off for Martin Luther King, you know the guy that founded the Lutherans? He was theirKing up until the late sixties when he was aspirated. He's got a statue next to Ebenezer Scrooge, so I hear.
Anyway, the boss wants me to drive some ballots up to Mass. tomorrow. He and Rahm are working on something hush hush. I know there's a broad involved though, because I heard them mention Marcia.

I like this line: "Big government wants to bury our freedom. But our freedom will bury big government."

Bullet points on what "We support":

Most are pretty good. Too many to list.

Hmmm: "We support replacing the progressive income tax" Sooo, with what, exactly? Maybe it says later.

Hmmm: "We support sensible, affordable health care reform..." But doesn't say that such reform should be market based, and not government provided. I'll read more to see if this is addressed.

306 Burn Notice is ok. I like Bruce Campbell in it. It seems to be floundering a little, though. Seems like it's being dragged out. They did that to Monk and screwed it up horribly (the ending was not thought out... except for Disher's part).

For me, the brilliance of Psych is the dynamic between the characters. There are none in the main cast that you really want to hate. They're all enjoyable to watch (except the new girlfriend of Shawn... she's just boring and a throw-away).

That's how I know when to quit renting a Showtime or HBO series.

Usually they wait 'til the second season to drop the comments about "rich white Republicans" (Dead Like Me). For Dexter, though, they couldn't wait for the end of the first DVD of the first season before there was a snide comment about Jeb Bush and then a reeeeeal subtle mention of a "monster" while passing by a George Bush halloween mask.

"We support attaining energy independence through a responsible "all of the above" enegy plan that maximizes American energy production; incentivizes free-market, green innovations; and encourages common-sense conservation."

It clearly hedges on "drill, baby, drill!" and instead settles for the mush-mouthed, squishy nod to green energy. Green energy is not something that should rank as a policy prescription until it's proven to be able to replace or add to current energy production. Here's a nice read on that at Reason mag.

It seems like the minute relationships between actors go high-profile, it gets weird.

I hate when lead actors get romantically involved in real life like the Twilight kids or Vanessa Hudgens/Zac Efron. I'd make a horrible actress because I can't fake chemistry, but I thought part of acting is not falling "in love" for real with your co-star.

432 #276: Jody, yes, Xena and her stalwart companion Gabrielle were pretty much T&A fanservice for the guys.

But you can tell in the subtext of the show (and it became seriously obvious right at the end) that Xena and Gabrielle were not just friends friends, IYKWIMAITYD.

And the stupid thing, again, is that Xena's attracted to strong men, like Hercules. So what about Gabrielle, who, let's face it, is a damsel in distress compared to Herc and Xena herself, would Xena go for? It's just plain stupid. And like I said, don't get me started.

It serves pretty well as a basic platform, but it is not prescriptive in most things. It leaves a hell of a lot of wiggle room for big-tentism. I'd say you could still squeeze a few more Specters into the tent this thing covers.

467 I usually try to have a real costume at halloween parties, not a slutty one. It differentiates me from the crowd cause everyone else goes sexy. It so funny, the nun works best. I get tons of attention and the girls dressed as french maids with their butts hanging out, never understand it.

475 Well I finally got Joey into his Dr. Dentons. He's chewed the toes out of them but he looks so cute. I pity him, wouldn't you?
So..... don't pay too much attention to Joey when he writes here. He hasn't been himself lately, ( and God knows that's a good thing ), and thinks he's Lon Cheney, ( yeah, I know, jeesh ).
One day last week he went into his undisclosed location, looking for some jobs, and couldn't find his way out. Well, maybe I paid the Secret Service to lock the door, but when he got out he thought it was 2012 and he'd been elected President.
He's on oxycontin now so he's pretty easy to handle and the doctor says there's no brain damage. I said BRAIN DAMAGE, if the man had a brain he'd take it out and play with it!

It’s difficult to get some of your hopes up too high that the good people of Massachusett(e)s, very blue state Massachusett(e)s, would rebuff President Obama and send a Republican to Washington, a Republican who has specifically promised to vote against the health care boondoggle. And with the polls, even though they pretty uniformly show Lt Col Brown with a lead, being all over the place, it’s hard to have a lot of confidence in them. But with solid Republican victories in the two 2009 gubernatorial elections (in New Jersey and Virginia), a Republican victory in the special election to fill the Massachusetts Senate seat would be another indication that President Obama’s policies have lost support, and the GOP, written off as dead by our friends on the left following the 2008 elections, is on the way back.

There is a final irony which would accompany a victory by Mr Brown. When John Kerry was running for the presidency, Massachusetts Democrats were afraid that, if he won, Governor Mitt Romney, a Republican would appoint a Republican to fill the seat Senator Kerry would vacate, so they changed the law, requiring senatorial seat vacancies to be filled by a special election. After Senator Kennedy died in office, they changed the law again, allowing current Governor Deval Patrick, a Democrat, to appoint Paul Kirk, a Democrat, to fill that seat until the special electioon could be held. If Mr Brown defeats Mrs Coakley, it would be the change in the law the Democrats put in place to keep a Republican out of the Senate which put a new Republican in the Senate

486 I don't like slutty Halloween costumes. It's a fine line between slutty and sexy when it comes to costumes, though. Two years ago was the first time I went with a sexy costume and it was very well received I heard later. (No party last year because my ex is a stodgy old codger at age 29.) I hope I get invited to one this year.

They were definitely pandering towards the end. When I heard that the lesbian crowd had really picked up on the show and was it's main fanbase, I quit watching.

You know, if she keeps the crazy ramping up throughout the season, that might not be an entirely bad idea. Though I don't know that Freddie Prinze Jr. ought to make the cut- seems to be a repeat of the lukewarm Ricky Schroder in Season 6. That said, his character isn't quite as bad (New York accent notwithstanding) as I'd expected.

636 629-

...Well, I personally think that once Kiefer goes the show will end. I think Kiefer was saying this season will be the last, unless the fans demand more or some such thing. Really, I think 24 and Bauer are so synonymous that they can't do the show without him. Just the same, I do hope that they give crazy-Renee some high visibility this season. Her moodswings last season made the character a bit exasperating- it'd be great to see the character just stick with the full-on crazy like she seems to be now.

I gave up on Angel about half-way through the third season. But I'm not surprised to learn that. Whedon/Noxon liked to go with folks they knew. And they had excellent taste in actors.

673 WTR, I went back and watched all 144 episodes of Buffy during the summer. One or two episodes a night, since there wasn't anything new on television. It rocked. Much better to watch it that way. You really pick up the arcs better that way.

And it wasn't so much that there was an apocalypse, but there had to be a stressor to drive the drama.

679 Whedon/Noxon liked to go with folks they knew. And they had excellent taste in actors.

That's the fun of Whedon shows. He always picks unknowns with amazing talent (see Dollhouse cast) and then brings in people from his other shows. I love watching Buffy/Angel/Firefly people on Dollhouse or each other's shows.

It was a trip to see Nathan Fillion on Desperate Housewives, even if he was a minor character. And seeing him on Castle is just plain weird.
And it wasn't so much that there was an apocalypse, but there had to be a stressor to drive the drama.

Yeah, but he likes the end of the world stuff. Like Glory and Caleb on Buffy, and on Angel it was Jasmine. And then the take down of Wolfram and Hart. Dollhouse has some apocalyptic stuff going on too.

Fox hates Whedon and favors McFarlane. They hate creativity and love Bush bashing. That's the only reason I can think of. They have 3 MacFarlane shows and cancel Whedon every single time. And they fuck with the show order of Whedon's shows so it confuses people and they lose interest which causes the ratings to plummet. Methinks they do it on purpose.

690 Sam is getting squezed out of the Hollywood system. I don't think he fits the "Mold". Most of his stuff is indie, I'm guessing he isn't a good coperate hack for Hollywood. I think he will be back, but it will be in the "Army of Darkness" Mode.
He reminds me of John Ford, how he keeps the actors and talented people always in his mind. You see them time and again like Lucy and Bruce and others always working for him. Of course with Lucy he does have some extra motivation.

691 Speaking of Firefly, why the hell did it have such a short run? That was a pretty damn cool show.

Because if it went on longer, it would have been ruined. The good shows usually die young or get worse as they drag on. At least they got Serenity out of it.

Dr. Horrible was awesome. The end was quite true to the story, even.
Related: Felicia Day's The Guild is actually quite funny.

Posted by: soulpile at January 19, 2010 02:39 AM (afWhQ)

692 687 He's definitely one of the sharper writers when it comes to dialogue. I was disappointed the first few episodes of Dollhouse season 1 didn't have the witty banter of Buffy/Angel/Firefly/Dr. Horrible. That was remedied as the season progressed and much more prevalent in season 2.

Posted by: wherestherum at January 19, 2010 02:40 AM (gofDd)

693 Anyway, we met at a local bar which holds an insult contest. I was forced to take on 6-8 drunks all-at-once, in intervals. The mysterious stranger, who always spoke of chaos, was famous for his witty repartee. If I could just get in one good jab...

Posted by: Miss'80sBaby at January 19, 2010 02:40 AM (zmiSr)

694 Joss Whedon has a special trope at tvtropes.org devoted to him... in fact, several tropes. "Jossed" means Word of God threw out your favourite conspiracy theory. "Screwed by the network" is what happens to almost all Joss Whedon shows... most egregiously Firefly.

But I'm glad, really. Before Joss had a chance to mate River Tam and Simon Tam, or pair up River and Inara, or Jayne and Mal. Which you know he will, if Firefly had made it to Season 5 or something.

Why no love for Farscape, btw?

Posted by: Gregory at January 19, 2010 02:41 AM (cjwF0)

695 689

Dollhouse started out roughly (a lot of it was because Fox was fucking with it), but if you stuck with it, it got better as the season went on. By the end I was hungry for more. Season 2 has proven to be much, much better and far more interesting. That's why I'm so bummed it got cancelled mid season. At least Fox is letting him air the last episodes.

While I agree with the premise, he wasn't known to go the gay route except in Buffy. It's not in Angel or in Dollhouse.

That said, yes, after the 4th season, his shows do tend to veer far off course. I think that's when he quits having direct input.

699 Farscape was good in the beginning and sort of in the end. The middle rather sucked. Oh, and they killed off the best characters, so... whatever.

I haven't watched any of Dollhouse since the last two episodes of the 1st season. Afraid of ruination or something. I'll wait until both seasons are on DVD and do a marathon.

I don't consider that veering off course, though. Inara is, essentially, a courtesan. I imagine she doesn't necessarily restrict herself to male clients. I also don't remember Inara and Saffron interacting in friendly ways.

Dollhouse never had the chance to get to that stage, not to mention that the premise of the show was already wack.

Angel, well, i reserve my comments. I will just note that Connor and his father's 'true love' had a child together (nevermind who was who).

Which episode are you talking about? The second one was when Inara kissed Mal (whom Saffron had just kissed with a soporific on her lips) and realised too late that Saffron had knocked him out (and hence her also). Mal wakes up, sees Inara knocked out, and comes to the wrong conclusion...

767 Won't you want to see Hua Mulan riding a dragon? Not some shitty dragon like Mushu, but a true blue, fire-breathing, size-of-a-barn dragon.

Now that, *that* would be badass.

768 Nope. I couldn't sit through House of Flying Daggers or Hero or whatever it was called. Didn't even try Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. I don't like Chinese movies. They bore me to death.

776 rrrg. I'm stuck trying to remove some pos malware called "Antivirus live" that got trojan'd onto my computer. I suspect from here, seeing as it's the only one I've been on today for a long period of time that's had blocked pop ups. My computer is usually so clean, dangnabit.

Thank goodness for google searches.

I do like the Bride with White Hair (or something like that). Pretty good and creepy.

No, no, it was a Chinese film. Maybe Ju Do isn't the right title. I think that was a name of a character in the film. I had to watch it in 9th grade for class.

Posted by: wherestherum at January 19, 2010 04:15 AM (gofDd)

788 I like the occasional asian horror film, but a lot of that stuff is just wrong. Really, really, really wrong. I research them before watching now. The worst part is when they're re-made by American studios instead of imported, though. Like we need American faces to relate to the stories or something. Sheesh.

793 Rum: Have you seen the actual Chinese movies? Like Once Upon A Time In China, Fong Sai Yuk, Drunken Master, or similar ones by Sammo Hung etc?

I won't call those boring, not by a long shot.

Of course, if you started out with the Western bastardisations, then no wonder.

Just don't pick up a Chinese serial. They're worse than soap operas.

795 If Drunken Master is what I think it is, that is a great film. Also, can't go wrong with Sammo Hung and Jackie Chan in their early days. I grew up on those films.
Funny story - I was formally introduced to Jackie Chan by a clip from a movie where he double-punched a lady right in the chest. Hooked was I, by the comedic value that the shot had in slow motion. His face was priceless.

Posted by: soulpile at January 19, 2010 04:23 AM (afWhQ)

796 793 Haven't seen those and likely won't. Like I said, not interested in anything related to China or even Asia in general, except the food. It's never interested me. I'm completely Americanized.

I also don't care for foreign films in general. There are some I like (Life is Beautiful) but on the whole I don't go out of my way to see them.

800 I can't stand Bruce Lee's films. Nor Jet Li. I prefer comedy to my films.
The Spy Next Door does look good. I'm wondering how it will stack up to The Pacifier.

Watch The Blade, Dreadnaught, Fire Dragon or Burning Paradise. If you can't dig any of those, its a lost cause for martial art flicks.

804 I loved the Pacifier! If someone had told me Vin Diesel can do comedy, I wouldn't have believed them. The Pacifier was a great family friendly and fun movie.

Posted by: wherestherum at January 19, 2010 04:31 AM (gofDd)

805 The 3rd Mummy movie was a travesty. I couldn't get past the first 30 minutes. It was booooring.

If you can't dig any of those, its a lost cause for martial art flicks.

I like gunfights and explosions over martial arts, unless it's incorporated like in Wanted.

Sword fights are a plus, whether it be fencing or broadsword swinging.

Posted by: wherestherum at January 19, 2010 04:35 AM (gofDd)

806 I wish Diesel would do some more family friendly/comedy films. He can be good at it. The Pacifier was a great surprise.
Though I guess The Rock is filling those shoes rather well. He seems to stick to the lighter fare, thankfully. (I almost mentioned Johnson as the Pacifier star.. until I remembered that the Pitch Black guy made that movie. I should get that one straight...)

807 The 3rd Mummy movie was a travesty. I couldn't get past the first 30 minutes. It was booooring.

1 and 2 were good. They lost my vote when the original actress said no to #3 (good brains on that one), plus the inclusion of Jet Li and China clinched the decision not to see it.

Gun-fu is fun to watch and it's innovative. It's the only part of Wanted that I liked. The rest of that film kind of sucked.

The old black and white sword fights are the best and most realistic. There is a reason for hitting someone with a sword between the neck and shoulder. (Look what old armor protects)

Posted by: s☺mej☼e at January 19, 2010 04:41 AM (Vd245)

810 Yeah the first 2 mummy movies were good. I think the 3rd one should have also stayed in egypt. There are a billion things in egyptian history they could have grabbed a story from.

812 The Rock actually fits the family movies really well. I've seen The Game Plan and I plan on seeing The Tooth Fairy. I didn't see the original Race to Witch Mtn, but I liked him in the remake. His movies are a delight. I've seen all of them except Doom and Southland Tales. Planet 51 is in my Netflix queue.

I think I read somewhere he wanted to do the family films for his daughter so that it's stuff she can watch with him.

On that note, I'm off to bed. Good night, morons!

816 I have to say that if The Rock is in it, it's worth watching.
And yes, The Mummy should have stayed in Egypt, or at least gone to Central or South America. Not China. It just didn't seem mysterious or adventurous enough.

Night all.

817 Best sword-fight:
Adventures of Robin Hood, Errol Flynn Basil Rathbone

2nd-best: LOTR movies (Incidentally, trainer on the set was taught by the man who taught Errol Basil.)

Posted by: Miss'80sBaby at January 19, 2010 05:10 AM (zmiSr)

818 Duuuuuudes.

Jet Li films are comedic (or rather, there are some of them that are). Fong Sai Yuk 1 & 2 are comedies (with a bit of drama). Jackie Chan has not starred in a serious film in his lifetime (I defy you to find one; he even uses stepladders as weapons). Which is why you like them, eh, soulpile?

The Mummy 3 sucked balls, I have to admit that. But Jet Li made so many other good movies, we'll have to forgive him that. And Lethal Weapon 3.

Rum: Americanisation is all well and good, but there are cool aspects to both Japanese as well as Chinese culture.

Besides, American culture dates back 200 years, and draws on Euro-culture before that. Chinese culture goes back near the dawn of time.

I grant you though that the coolest parts of the Chinese culture are (a) das food (b) das Sun Tzu (c) das festivals and (d) die Romance of the Three Kingdoms.

Japan, well, where would we get our daily dose of weird if not from there?
