Looks like Bret's kid got their birthday wish.

breast feeding? I love that girl, is she somehow connected to BEE. please say no.

Huh?

As far as I know, that image is from 'Liar, Liar,' where the attractive female in the law firm tells Jim Carrey that she just got promoted (or something along those lines), and then Jim replies with, 'That's just because you have big breasts.'

Maybe that's not the correct image?

Yeah, you said "Bret's kid", i was wondering what that image had to do with Ellis' kid.


The kid (the lawyer's son) in Liar, Liar wished for one day that his father couldn't tell a lie.

Tried watching Hurt Locker twice and the jerky a$$ camera work made me physically ill.

Tommy Moo: To be fair, I have heard that the Hurt Locker is actually quite horrible.

I haven't seen any of this woman's movies, so I can't say for sure if she's overrated, but let's not pretend that lauding platitudes on attractive women isn't a thing.


You may or may not have a point, but slamming her oscar winning movie, sight unseen, "to be fair" seems pretty damned far from fair.

Same here. I hear it's a good movie, and I'm going to give it a third try.

thecpt: Tommy Moo: To be fair, I have heard that the Hurt Locker is actually quite horrible.

I like it. A lot of people like it. I've seen negative reactions on Fark, mainly from former service men pointing out it's flaws. They probably have merit, but the movie is full of really good and suspenseful scenes. Some others blurt out the word vignettes like its supposed to be negative.

Watch it. Even if you don't like it, you're probably won't think of it as time wasted.


As a former service type I thought the hurt locker was a steaming pile. I had hoped she would stay away from military movies a pick another genre she would be more suited for (like chick flicks). But given the high level of ignorance (and contempt) Hollywood as displayed in recent years about the military and the poor quality of films they have put out she is really not the worse one to direct a military film.

Yeah, because all it takes to make a good movie is a good script, right? I mean hell, if someone handed you a good script you could make a good movie I'll bet! That's why there are no great directors. All they get is scripts, and the movies just film themselves! That's all that's holding Uwe Boll from his zenith. He just needs a good script.

Your GOP sniveling isn't going to change the fact that Hurt Locker was a fantastic.

So, in summary, you're retarded.

Rampage. really? I watched about 5 minutes of that on Netflix before the piss poor directing made me flip it off in disgust.

The first 10 minutes of Postal was pretty damn funny, and Seth Green had some great moments. It's probably the one flick Boll has done that displays even a teeny TINY bit of talent. But even Postal was painful to watch most of the time.

Stow that shiat, Hudson. It's not any worse than the ignorance Hollywood displays about any specialized profession, virtually none of which are portrayed with any accuracy whatsoever. Painful, yes, but nobody wants to watch "hurry up and wait" and endless polishing of boots any more than they want to watch how I really do molecular biology.
 
2012-12-06 12:35:17 PM  
Well Zero Dark Thirty is a damned good movie. It asks some really hard questions about our country, and will inspire more critical thought than BEE's entire life's work. So there's that.

I was left with a feeling of... that's it? That's the ending? What are we supposed to take from that? Some people like combat more than "real life?" Meh.

The way I saw it, The Hurt Locker is a drug flick disguising itself as a war movie. You have this addict who is willing to do anything, go down the deepest lows, even to the point of almost willing to die in order to get his fix, which is the adrenaline rush. The fact that he chose the rush over his son as the only thing he could really ever love completely with the movie ending with him heading back into the metaphoric drug den illustrates this.


Mind if I co-sign?

I think he's talking about how many in Hollywood act like our soldiers are criminals for simply doing their jobs.

Not all Hollywood is that way. But many prominent stars and directors have gone so anti-war as to almost insinuate that we shouldn't even have a military.

Because our soldiers are just thugs with guns in their eyes or some shiat.

Rawhead Rex: American Psycho is probably the greatest American novel ever written...

Yes, I mean that.


Is that the only American novel you've read? I wouldn't even put it in my top twenty. Hell, there's a Stephen King novel or two I might put above it.

I'm already highly disappointed that Chris Pratt simply credited as "US Navy Seal"

and not "Bert Macklin - US Navy Seal."

-1 already Bigelow. The rest of the film better be damn fantatsic.

Spoilerish alert: Obama's name is not mentioned a single farking time in Zero Dark Thirty. He is shown ONCE in a TV clip condemning the use of torture, which the movie portrays as being somewhat effective and necessary for the pursuit oh UBL.

Never understood drinking games. Why do I want to wait to drink?

Everytime you see fire, take a drink.

Oh, and there are not many B zombie flicks that I haven't seen.


Who said you have to wait? I drink in between all the time. I just take the extra sips as required by the game rules.

^5 for b zombie flicks. Aren't they the best?

Just what exactly has he FAILed at here, Mr. Subby? Sounds like he accomplished what he set out to do.

/Just take away the stupid FAIL tag, nobody knows how to use it properly

I'm not sure if it's "B" or not (probably B+), but "The Dead" was one of the finer zombie flicks I've seen in a long time.

And also...

"Stink of Flesh"

downtownkid: Spoilerish alert: Obama's name is not mentioned a single farking time in Zero Dark Thirty. He is shown ONCE in a TV clip condemning the use of torture, which the movie portrays as being somewhat effective and necessary for the pursuit oh UBL. Anyone who thinks the film is pro-Obama is a complete moron.


Which means that the talking heads on FOX NEWS will be bleating like wounded goats about the movie being "2 hours of Obama worship" or something stupid like that.

Detinwolf: My experience mirrors others here - I saw The Hurt Locker with my friend who is an Iraq veteran. I liked it a lot and he hated it.


Same here. A disproportionate amount of my friends and family are military, most being Iraq and/or Afghanistan vets. I watched this on DVD with a bunch of them (3 being EOD themselves) and stopped myself from showing too much enjoyment since it seemed like every five minutes there was a, "Oh, come on," or a, "Did they even do any research?" My favorite of the night was my best friend at the time going on a rant about how Renner wasn't a badass, he was a self-absorbed idiot who needed to be locked up before he got his entire team killed. After that, i just can't watch it outside of that prism.

I also seem to remember something about the guy who wrote it being hated by the unit he was embedded with and making most of the shiat from his articles up. Anyone know if I'm thinking about the right guy?

Military people are the absolute worst to watch any military movie with. It doesn't matter what branch, what MOS, what era. They just can't get it out of their farking heads that it's a goddamn movie, not a farking documentary.

/ 4 Years on an aircraft carrier
// Battleship was an awesome movie

Nothing stating that in wiki. Just this

In March 2010 (five days before the Academy Awards ceremony), Master Sergeant Jeffrey S. Sarver announced he was suing the producers of The Hurt Locker because screenwriter Mark Boal allegedly based the main character and "virtually all of the situations" in the film on events involving him. Sarver also claimed to have coined the phrase "the hurt locker".[5]

The producers' spokesperson has reiterated the screenplay is fictional.[6] In addition, citations for the phrase "the hurt locker", date back to 1966 during the years of the Vietnam War. The phrase has been used among military members for decades.[7] In the December 8, 2011 issue of The Hollywood Reporter, it was announced that Master Sergeant Sarver's lawsuit was thrown out by the court, and a federal judge ordered him to pay more than $180,000 in attorney fees.[8]
