I rarely eat at McDonald's but I thought The Founder was a pretty good movie. Pretty interesting how Ray Kroc turned McDonald's into what it is today, and how he fucked over the McDonald's brothers to do it.

Terrible sequel. It's just different from Original Independence Day


Did you expect any different? I knew going in it was a money grab... it wasn't good

I anticipated it being TERRIBLE. When I finally watched it out of boredom one night, it was terrible. But it was more entertaining than I thought at the same time.

Bond fans.

Watched Casino Royale last week which made it the first Bond flick I've seen since Goldeneye.

Most bond movies are self contained. Does this stay true? I'm debating skipping Quantum of Solace for now and jumping into Skyfall.

Will I lose anything by doing that?

Quantum of Solace picks up right where Royale ends, but its a **** movie. Filmed during the writer's strike so the director was making crap up as he filmed.

I say skip it.

I mean, watching it wouldn't be a large investment. But you shouldn't lose anything by skipping it. It is the worst of the Craig era. I guess maybe you'd just miss out on them building up his broken soldier character.

What'd you think of Casino Royale? I loved it when it came out. I was an 18 yo boy so I thought it was "pretty pimpin". Saw it again recently and thought it was pretty great still - not sure if was colored with a bit of nostalgia though. Thought both Quantum and Skyfall were actually pretty dookie to be honest. Skyfall was just so hyped and was the definition of "meh" to me

I really enjoyed it. It downplayed Bond as the playboy and Craig was able to step up the physical stuff more than anyone before him. The villain was pretty typical in that he looked scary, he just wasn't a billionaire bad-guy with a secret fortress or a gimmicky henchman. what we got was the style, exotic locations, and so forth that we all know and love from the franchise, but without the gimmicky stuff that made Austin Powers so funny.

the biggest knock on it for me was all of the stuff Bond had to put up with between rounds of poker. Sorry, but I have to be defibrillated after getting poisoned, there's no way I'm going to show up back at the poker table an hour later looking dapper. That was the only real test of my suspension of disbelief.

If anything Skyfall is perceived much better because it was massively better than Quantum. I really enjoyed Skyfall. I also liked the new one but I'd put it 3rd in Craig's era.

I'd put Skyfall ahead of Casino Royale. I think Skyfall is the best Bond ever, and I've seen them all at least twice and read all of Fleming's books (and a few that others wrote,) so I don't say that lightly.

Same boat. But, for me, CR is tops. It revitalized that franchise.

Jerry Maguire

Still funny, still has its date movie feel.

Rod Tidwell 4yrs $11M and was celebrating. That and Barry Switzer coaching the Cowboys are all that reminds you of how old the movie is.

Big Touble in Little China. Still awesome.

Just before that, Tucker and Dale vs Evil. A lot funnier than I thought it would be.

Watched The Breakfast Club for the first time in a long time on Friday. I gotta say I agree with Lady Swash that it's a good movie but I can't help but be bothered by how much filler it had. It seemed like every line had to be this substantial mind-blowing thing and if the couldn't do that then there must otherwise be cheesy dancing. Lady Swash started going on about it was this timeless, amazing movie and made it sound as if it almost transcended American history. I of course disagreed, pointed to several others like The Godfather series, Shawshank Redemption, Ten Commandments, Gone With The Wind, Star Wars stand the test of time just like Breakfast Club does. But those movies are/were at a level we will be lucky to see matched in our lifetime. There's Breakfast Club and then there's movies like THAT. I somehow came up with Schindler's List as well which is funny because I haven't even thought of that movie for 10 years. I picked that out of the movies I listed almost to prove a point of my disagreement and I gotta say: I swore I'd hold it together through the movie and I'll be damned if I didn't choke up at the end. I just couldn't do it.

Screw you Steven Spielberg. Screw you and your cinematic genius for doing this to me you magnificent SOB.

Speaking of Spielberg, I just watched, Catch Me If You Can, for the first time last night. Thoroughly enjoyed it. While Tom Hanks was excellent as usual, it was also one of the better films featuring a young Leo DiCaprio. Not sure why it took me 15 years to see it though.

I had considered that one but I always felt it was better remembered for its cultural impact rather than as a movie itself. It had A+ impact on the world no differently than say a Star Wars despite the fact I'd rate it at as about a 83% movie with 100% being the best possible score for. But seeing someone else mention it really makes me think I need to reconsider.

Just makes you realize how everything Spielberg made for about 25 years was pure fire. From Jaws, Close Encounters, ET, Jurassic Park, Saving Private Ryan, Raiders Of The Lost Ark to The Color Purple. It's such an amazing body of work.

I love popping Jaws on every few years. It's exciting and suspenseful all over again.
