Jacob's Ladder

A great film from 1990 (I think) w/ Tim Robbins. Very underated and highly recommended.

Unthinkable, extended version

Samuel L. Jackson fans will love this one. The movie is a thriller about a terrorist who plants a number of nuclear bombs around the country in the major cities, exactly what number is the main question.

The movie has several statements to make about fighting terrorism in general:
Who the players are
Who has the moral high-ground: Are both warring parties on the same level??
How far are the players willing to go to accomplish their missions?

This is a movie you watch from start to finish without stopping, or at least hitting the pause button. Highly recommended if you are into action thrillers that are well done and leave you thinking afterward.

At one point, a "prophet" named Benjamen Creem say's: "God told me to watch in the window. the're was a car
B.M. and you got in the car?
B.C. Yes"
Sound familiar to me.
lmao, Richard.

Up In The Air

George Clooney will probably win an Oscar for his role as a corporate exec. who flies around the country firing people. His goal in life? To accumulate 10,000,000 frequent flyer miles. It is a very witty and sophisticated comedy.

The people he fires are played by people who have been recently laid off from their jobs.

This whole movie is really quite poignant and very good. One of the best I've seen in the last 5 years.

answer to CC re Jerry & Hunter

Couldn't let this one go by... Jerry & Hunter are alike in some ways, different in others. They were both artists and they both took their own lives, which is a controversial and radical expression of freedom.

To say that Jerry didn't know he was taking his own life at some point in the 20 years he was using is ridiculous. Is that the distinction you are trying to make?

Please PM me on this if you'd like to reply, most people have no appetite for this subject.

Hunter is quoted on a Flying Dog bottle

While enjoying an Imperial Porter "Gonzo" the other day, I noticed on the label a quote from the late Mr. Thompson, " Good people drink good beer" . Wow, what a brew with those 85 IBU's. There's another quote mentioned.

If you look with the right eyes...

... Hunter Thompson said, you can see the high water mark.

Ain't it true!
RIP Hunter S. Thompson
