Fight Club

Not long ago, JB asked if enough time had passed since 9/11. Given that this movie is about the very things that were targeted on 9/11, will enough time ever pass? Still, if you try to ignore Project Mayhem, its a strangely enjoyable movie.

Funniest thing to me: most people I talk to don't understand why the Narrator survives while Tyler utters those famous last words: "Whats that smell?"

Yeah. I came up with a thread idea that was stickied! I will go down in the annals of history! And I love the ideas that keep coming up.  My Netflix queue is becoming enormous.

So last night we watched Prince Caspian after bingo night.  I enjoyed it. I was surprised with the amount of death, but I thought it was handled well.  Cameron had a few questions and we were happy to field them and help with his understanding. I haven't read the books, but the first two movies are prompting us to. So I am looking forward to the comparison.

Right now I am taking a break from watching Gamers while I switch laundry. It is a mockumentary about a group of RPGers who have been playing for 23 years. I find it funny because I see some of my best and worst moments as a gamer. It also reminds me a bit of Blackballed and King of Kong, if you enjoyed those.

Interesting question Michael.  I tried to watch Fight Club again several years ago and had a difficult time. I hadn't thought about it though and recently caught it again on G4 and 9/11 didn't even enter my mind.

Fun suggestion for the original NOSFERATU:

The DVD version that I have features 2 different modern soundtracks added to the film... and they're both atrocious, to these ears.  So a few years back, after my wife had gone to sleep and I was up watching NOSFERATU sometime around midnight, I decided to hit the mute button, just to see what kind of affect it had...

I watched the entire movie with the sound off.  Watching it at midnight, with the lights out and the sound off, added an extremely eerie, dreamlike and hypnotic feel to the film.  I was transfixed the whole time.  I'd highly suggest giving it a try!

Ha!  I'll admit, while watching I thought more than a few times that MUTE would definitely be an improvement on the soundtrack!

Today was TV day. I'm just finishing Disc 1 of Band of Brothers. Won't get to more tonight, which means I have to watch(get to watch, really) 8 hours worth tomorrow. Once you start this program, you have you finish it; its the law.

And for those who are interested, the answer to the question:"why does tyler eat it but the Narrator survives?"

Spoiler Alert!: If you notice, the bullet passes through the left side of the Narrator's jaw but hits Tyler dead on. Why? Because Tyler Durdin...  

...is just left of center! Metaphors rule!

Burning through 2 or 3 episodes of THE OUTER LIMITS for the past couple of nights. I love this show, and can honestly state that I never get tired of watching it.

Alternating with episodes of THE ADVENTURES OF BRISCO COUNTY JUNIOR.
RIP Lord Bowler.

Caught both "The Garage" and "Lightning Bug"--both movies about teenage
boys longing to leave home and strike out on their own.

Neither were very watchable, unfortunately.

MUNICH was really great, but with a melodramatic ending which felt out of left field a bit. Last one was Sleeping Beauty, which I like for tons of reasons. I think most will find it pretty dated, though.

If you haven't seen it, get Marathon Man! 'Is it safe?'

We watched Righteous Kill last night. It was ok, but I guessed the ending in the first 10 min.

 

We watched Bangcok Dangerous also and it was terrible. Nicolas Cage gave the most lifeless performance I have ever seen.
