    Honestly, I just don't get it. Million Dollar Baby is nothing more than a string of clichés and predictable plot twists so nakedly obvious that one wonders how everyone involved kept a straight face. In fact, take away the big names and you'd have a straight-to-video non-entity that would never see the light of any self-respecting critic's top ten. But hey, that's just my opinion.

    I took a lot of German classes through HS and college, along with a German film class. So if you're bored, and don't want to watch Tom Cruise, expand your horizons ...

    More recent German cinema:

    "Lola Rennt" [English title: "Run Lola Run"]
    "Stille nach dem Schuss" ["The Legend of Rita"]
    "Nirgendwo in Afrika" ["Nowhere in Africa"]

    Old, old film, for people who like silent movies:

    "Metropolis"
    "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari"
    "Nosferatu" (pure creepiness)

    War issues:

    "Jakob the Liar" (not the crappy Robin Williams remake)
    "The Murderers are Among Us"

    And one of my favorites of all ...

    "The Enigma of Kaspar Hausar" or "Every Man for Himself and God Against All"

    I'ver never really felt the urge to watch any German cinema. What little I've seen, I didn't care for. (Not to paint all of German cinema with one broad stroke.) I do own a copy of Nosferatu and Metropolis, although I never got around to getting the refurbished version of Metropolis (mental note). I did see Lola at the theatre. Metropolis impressed me so much, it made me buy "M" and I bought a book called, "The Fillms of Fritz Lang: Allegories of Vision and Modernity." I'm ashamed to say I never saw Caligari.

    My fav films not in the mainstream are old, old film noirs and I love Asian cinema.

    Movies I've seen in the last 2 weeks:

    Shaun Of The Dead I agree with everyone else on here, good movie. I already like the zombie movie genre (28 Days later is probably my fav). Shaun of the Dead is the first one I've seen that was funny on purpose.

    The Terminal Very good movie and I was expecting not to like it. Should have known, if it's got Hanks in it, it is usually good.

    The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy I enjoyed it, kinda funny, pretty decent movie. I had no idea what to expect, I've never read any of the books or even heard of it before.

    I can understand not wanting to watch German film. Throughout the middle of the century, you almost could paint German film with one broad stroke (thank you, DEFA). And then there's some acclaimed films that are just painful to sit through -- "The Tin Drum," "Rosa Luxemburg," "Wings of Desire" and "Germany in Autumn" to name a few.

    The newer things - like "Nowhere" and "Legend" - are similar, but made exceptionally better. Both feel a lot like "The Pianist."

    The only film noir I can think of - German style - is a film called "Happy Birthday, Turke!" It's a whole German film without any references to rebuilding Germany, concentration camps, Nazis, etc.

    And for 1919, "Caligari" is pretty amazing. A real story and a meaning for the German audience at the time.

    Although not German, The Passion of Joan of Arc (1928) by Dreyer is possibly one of the greatest silent films ever. Maria Falconetti gives one of the most powerful performances ever captured on film.

    Watched Office Space tonight. Most of my friends hadn't seen it, so, we, uh, watched it.

    I still need to see Office Space. I saw a few minutes on Comedy Central once, but that's it. Came close to buying the DVD twice, but looking at it it's clear it's an old release that's past due for a new release with special features, and probably better picture.

    I just saw The Longest Yard (remake). It was pretty good.

    I'm really looking forward to the next few weeks. High Tension, Batman Begins, Land of the Dead, Fantastic Four, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory all look interesting.

    And I said, I don't care if they lay me off either, because I told, I told Bill that if they move my desk one more time, then, then I'm, I'm quitting, I'm going to quit. And, and I told Don too, because they've moved my desk four times already this year, and I used to be over by the window, and I could see the squirrels, and they were merry, but then, they switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn't bind up as much, and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and it's not okay because if they take my stapler then I'll set the building on fire...

    I don't think you can really appreciate it until you've worked in an office.

    My first job out of school, I used to joke that it was Office Space. It was a software company, my boss's name was remarkably close to Bill Lumberg, we had layoffs, I knocked a wall out of my cube, etc.

    Then I went to work for Cummins, where I was working in the basement (even though there were literally acres of empty desks upstairs), the commute was a ***** and a half, people were always talking about TPS reports, management did nothing besides have meetings, and my job basically consisted of playing solitaire. Even the people I worked with looked exactly like from the movie. There were doppelgangers for Michael Bolton, Samir, etc. It was really quite scary.

    Needless to say I don't miss working in an office.

    Revenge of the Sith. After watching it again, I like it better than I did going in.

    Watched "City of God" again last night. An amazing, horrific, stinging story.
