68%. Very few I've heard of but not seen, only 3 that were made after 1990. A lot of the older ones I might never have heard of, let alone seen, had I not had a film major as a roommate for a few years.

DrT: black powder might be magnetic, but it would at best scatter on the ground showing field lines, not fucking fly around the room like a magic magnet-seeking cloud. [morbo]Magnets do not work that way![/morbo]
I agree about the field lines, but black powder, aside from being severely anachronistic, really only contains charcoal, saltpeter, and sulfur.  That being said, the magnetism appeared to be highly selective and possibly magic.

DrT: True, it did later attract gold as well, even LaBoof knew that this was impossible and said so in the movie.

They had better have been pressured to use that script by the government as part of a plan to prepare the american people for the revelation that the government has had contact with aliens for decades. It is the only defense I can imagine for them putting their names on this steaming turd.

Apparently in the indiana jones universe, the catholics AND the new-age nut-jobs are both right. I'm willing and able to suspend disbelief quite a bit, but "aliens built atlantis and taught early man to farm" and "Jesus was the divine son of god and if you drink from his favorite coffee mug you can live forever" are just not two ideas I can comfortably hold on to at the same time.

I haven't seen the movie yet... so I don't know how crazy and ridiculous it gets.  I'm sure turning toward the alien stuff isn't quite the flavor you expect from Indiana Jones, but I don't see a good reason why both of those statements can't be true.  If God exists, aliens can't?  Or they can't teach early man to farm if Jesus (the divine Son of God) could have a 'magical' cup that defies our normal perceptions (assuming God is omnipotent, the cup thing could be achieved in a multitude of ways, including without breaking the laws that govern the Universe, I am sure).

So... as I said, it's probably a little off-putting to see in your Indiana Jones, but personally, I could suspend disbelief if that wasn't the only problem with the movie [and also shia leboof wasn't in it].

Unfortunately I've seen all the good ones, so we'll have to go see something shitty instead. I never did see Kangaroo Jack, or Crocodile Dundee III. Either of those would be fine.

Nick: We talked about this a bit on irc, but for the record I suppose if your definition of christianity is broad enough to allow for a physical-entity god who uses technological slight-of-hand rather than supernatural power, then sure, the two can be reconciled fine.

Really? Some of them I didn't think deserved to be there, and I'm not sure Toy Story is actually one of the top 250 movies of all time, but sucks dick? Too harsh.

Well, for one thing Gopher, IMDB has a tendency to throw new movies onto the top 250 list... this actually makes sense, but it's hard to compare them to classic movies that have been around for 50+ years until time has aged them a little.

I (finally) saw Slumdog Millionaire in Toronto. It took like an hour and half to get there, in traffic jams, but it was worth it. smile
Everything I expected it to be. Ooh, also, there was only 3 other people in the whole theater, which was totally unexpected as the per-theater average box office for it is huge. Nobody was standing at the booth to take the tickets, so I could have gotten in for free :O.
I feel like a foreigner going to the city because there's more Asians and Indians there than white people. It's always an interesting experience going to the city though. I got Hocus Pocus by KV in the mall too (which I shall start tonight and put the Stand by Me book on hiatus)! oh right, the movie,

9.7/10, Sunshine is still my favourite Danny Boyle movie, but this ranks up there too.

Masty: Well, since Rach apparently turned me down, I guess you're better than nothing. I warn you, though, I was planning on pulling the old bottomless popcorn trick, and I've already done the prep work so I'm following through with it anyway.

Yeah, there is something disturbing about some of the animal relationships in this movie. Kung Fu panda is better. I cant believe Twilight got rated lower than this. But the kids will like it.

Saw Taken tonight, it was very good actually. And way better than that The Day The Earth Stood Still movie, don't know why they called it a remake, there were about three things alike with the original one. Still, Keanu Reeves completely saved it for:

Chosen by Empire magazine as one of the 100 Sexiest Stars in film history (#17).

Ranked #23 in Empire (UK) magazine's "The Top 100 Movie Stars of All Time" list. [October 1997].

Chosen by "People" magazine as one of the 50 most beautiful people in the world. [1995]

Chosen by Empire magazine as one of the 100 Sexiest Stars in film history (#28). [2007].


Although he got most of those last century, I think he still deserves all of them.

I just watched Heat. smile

Really loved it. Everything a movie should be, and the bank scene was mind blowing. Just well made all around, and I'm not that big a fan of crime dramas.

10/10, I gave Slumdog a bit lower, but my expectations for that were extremely high.

Dude the scene with the blood samples...Jesus that was intense.

But I learned that there are two men who I would trust most in an apocolyptic situation; Harrison "The Man" Ford and Kurt motha-fucking Russell...if it was 1986 again...I can pretend.

EDIT: Oh yeah Bruce/John Willis/McClane can be the sidekick. Out of all three of them he's the only one still kicking.
