Aha, classy man. I'm not much into football but if the movie is full of this kind of genius I may just have to check it out.

Started watching that movie at least three times and never finished it. My friend adores it, one day I'm going to have to buy it and watch it through when I'm sober ...

Such such such a good movie. Acted excellently, the plot carried beautifully. It'll teach you a lot about life and yourself.
Agreed. Very sad though, beginning middle and end.

Simple Minds, I love that song.

I remember watching this movie and having huge issues about it. It doesn't really advocate being true to yourself but just says you have to change who you are in order to be cool. I guess that's not dissimilar to most high school/college movies these days.

Yeaaah but life is sad. And it's a movie based on real life. *shrugs* take out the sad parts and the entire movie loses purposes. ESPECIALLY the end, **** that was a shocker. I was half way saying "You can't do this, this is Hollywood, this isn't allowed to happen!". But the point was that it did, and that's when and WHY he found nirvana.

The Birth of a Nation
For anyone who doesn't know or couldn't guess by the poster, this 1915 silent film is about the American Civil War and the founding of the Ku Klux Klan (who it depicts as heroes). To say this movie is absurdly racist and an enormous steaming pile of revisionist history bullshit is an understatement. However, it is a landmark film in the history of cinema filled with many innovations which are now completely entrenched pieces of the language of cinema especially in terms of the camera work and the editing. It's also an interesting unintentional document of how socially acceptable extreme racism was in American culture back in those days. On the other hand, it was controversial even in it's day so that at least gives me a little hope. Worth watching if you have an interest in the history of cinema and don't mind sitting through a silent film that's over three hours long but be advised that this movie will probably piss you off.

Crank 2 - I thought the first was awesome in the wholly this is stupid but done in a fun don't take it serious way. The second, is kinda just ****ing nuts at times, still the crew is blatantly only having fun with it all, and it just........works, some of the stuff is absolutely roflworthy. An absolutely crackers movie, yet just so much fun. 6/10
