My offseason FA wishlist:
Sergio Rodriguez (backup pg)
Thomas Robinson (backup pf)
Andray Blatche (starting pf - replacing West)
Corey Brewer (starting sg/sf - interchangeable w/ PG)
It's funny, that's how I felt about The Dark Knight. Like, Ledger made that movie..everything else about it was dull to me.
Just saw Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. First time I've seen Marilyn Monroe in a movie....so that's where that darn baby voice came from. Pretty good movie. I'm kind of wondering if she pretty much plays the same part in every movie though..
You call Zuckerburg an *******, I call him a genius. I found it very inspirational.
You mean during the bar scene?
That's Ball and a Biscuit by The White Stripes.
You can't get champagne from a garden hose.
No. The fact is that the twins weren't smart enough to write the code for the ideas , Mark was. So therefore, he was a genius by acting fast with yes, someone's idea, but in a ninja like manner.
I agree to the film being inspirational. I also agree that each character in the movie, are indeed douche bags.

I thought Horrible Bosses was pretty darn funny. I recommend it to most. It is a little vulgar though, although it did not bother me. That's the way it is these days.
Well facebook wasn't that original of an idea by the twins either. If the twins made facebook, there would be no facebook. It never would have gotten off the ground. Zuckerberg was a genius in what he did. I dont know if anyone else would have gotten Facebook to where it is today.
The movie had brilliant acting, great drama, great writing/story line, and it pretty much delivered in every aspect, which is why it was regarded as being one of, if not the best movie of the year. I didn't think Inception was going to be topped when I saw it, but Social Network did it.
After watching Social Network, I wanted to poison the lead character and watch him die a slow death...and this is from an avid facebook user, so I like his product.
I think the whole bar conversation at the beginning is true. He's a true a$$hole. And for that, I could never respect him.
Social Network isn't the real story. It's been touched by Hollywood. Interestingly enough, the only details the cared to get right was his wardrobe. That's it.
Come to the Dark Side -- There's cookies!
The first one I really really really liked.
I quite liked it.
HP. LOVED it. I'm going to have to go back and watch it again.
Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.
Unless it's sold out, I will be going to see Potter tomorrow afternoon in Richmond. Pretty excited.
wow it is really great. The 3 main characters feed off each other so well reminded me of hangover 1. and Jennifer A was hilarious. My favorite scene had to be the pee man scene. This movie was brilliant
Harry Potter 7 part 2
I thought it was good. But i don't agree/ like with the ending I would of changed it if i was in charge.

Saw the last Potter movie.
First of all, it bears mentioning that I think the sound was messed up at the Richmond theater I saw it in. I felt like the volume was about 75%-80% of what it ought to have been, and it seemed like there wasn't always music where I have the feeling there actually IS music.
With that out of the way, and acknowledging that the above probably, if not definitely, played a role, it kind of fell flat to me. Yet I wouldn't say it was bad, either.
I definitely need to see it again, hopefully somewhere with proper audio, but for now I was left somewhat underwhelmed, though I have to say there are still some nice moments.
There were emotional moments that touched me, but I felt like there were certain scenes that had the potential to deliver a 10/10 gut wrenching moment, but instead we're given about a 6/10 instead. (Particularly the part outside of the Forbidden Forest, though the bit between Harry and Hermione just prior got me to tear up a bit).
For those who are Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans, remember when Buffy has a very similar moment before she goes down to the sewer to face The Master? Sarah Michelle Geller knocks an identical line out of the park, whereas Radcliffe does not.
I'd read some reviews talking about how the movie gives plenty of nods/moments to various players, but they all seem to be kind of like a checklist; here and then suddenly done and moving on. I tend to agree, but not always. Over the last several years, as I've grown more mature, I've really come to appreciate movies that let scenes breathe, so I'm more and more turned off when things don't get to take a full breath and have an exhale, so to speak. Sometimes this movie fell victim to not letting things stretch out just a little bit.
My audience members didn't help in other cases by giggling at things I didn't think were meant to be funny, but I've had far worse audiences, too.
I dunno; I feel bad for being so negative; it's another solid effort in the series, but I can't help feeling like I got a 7/10 when it could have been a 9/10, somehow.
As I did in the book, I really liked the epilogue.
As I did in the book, I felt underwhelmed by the climactic moment.
And getting back to the F. Forest scene, they could have milked a lot more emotion out of that, both heading in, and while we're still in there. Maybe they wanted to keep things from being too dark; I dunno.
All in all, I definitely want to give this another shot before it leaves theaters so I can hopefully hear it all properly (I'm crossing my fingers for more music, which can easily stir my emotions if done well), and really I'm getting an itch to re-read at least chunks of Deathly Hallows to re-experience it in that medium.
Funny enough, part 1 stirred my emotions more than this one did. Never expected that to happen. I will say that I'd love a chance to watch it as one uninterrupted movie someday. I re-watched part 1 on blu-ray this morning to prepare, but that's not the same thing.
Oh, and I didn't get the Dark Knight Rises Teaser. I know it's barely anything, but I love the Nolan Batman films, and I still wanted to see it. I wish they'd hurry up with getting it online (and not as a boot leg).
