Bale was awesome.

The movie made me go out abd buy the Ward Gatti trilogoy of fights. If you have never seen them, you are missing out. Those are two of the toughest fighters to ever step in the ring and their fights are epic.

just watched some youtube vids. Good lord, Gatti's got a chin like Chris Leben. And how many ribs did Ward break? damn. Crazy fights.

I finally got around to watching Silverado. I'd never seen it before and my buddies were saying how great it was - compared it to Unforgiven and Tombstone.

...yeah, nothing like Unforgiven or Tombstone. I went into it thinking it was going to be a darker western and it was more of an action-comedy.

I liked it, and think I would have enjoyed it a lot more had I gone into it looking for more of an 80's action-comedy movie.

Jake: All I did was kiss a girl!
Emmett: They got you in jail for that?
Jake: Yeah, I kissed a girl, and this other fella didn't like it, so we had some words, and so I decided to get out of there. So I did, I got out of there. You know me, Emmett, I don't want no trouble. So, I go outside, and this fellow tries to shoot me in the back.
Emmett: You had to kill him?
Jake: No, no, I winged him. And he dropped his gun.
Emmett: They got you in jail for winging a guy?
Jake: Well... no, not exactly. Because, see, then his friend opened up on me.
Emmett: What friend is that?
Jake: The one with the shotgun.
Sheriff Langston: The DEAD one.

I just watched an old one - War of the Roses (1989, I think), with Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner, and Danny Devito. Douglas and Turner have a great marriage for many years that turns ugly. When Turner wants a divorce, they fight over who will get the house (actually, it's a mansion/estate) and the rest of the movie centers on the antics each plays to get the other to move out of the house. It wasn't great, but not bad either - I thought it would be funnier.

I've got Paranormal Activity 2 ready to go...maybe tonight.

War of the Roses was actually mid to late 15th century.

Life as We Know It
5/10

I'm pretty tired of Katherine Heigl, though my wife loves her. It just seems that every movie she is in, she plays a non-stop talking (b)witch. So, she has her good moments, but more bad moments.

The movie had some funny spots, but not worth watching unless your wife or girlfriend is really dying to see this flick, and then only to make her happy. 2 full hours of Ugggg.

i'm the same way with it


This was one again while flipping through channels. Ya know what? Billy Zane's voice reminds me of Obama's, and they have some of the same mannerisms as well. Maybe Obama could play Zane when they do his Biography on A&E.
