Into the Wild

Into the Wild, the movie, the story, the notion, is more powerful than anything else I’ve ever experienced in my life. I can watch it over and over and over and still feel overcome with a powerful sense of unyielding passion for life and nature. The story-line, the cinematography, the music, the actors, the characters, ...

Technology: The Good and the Bad 1

Last night we rented a movie. When returning the movie this morning on my way to see the dentist, I was reminded how technology has helped us avoid mundane time-consuming tasks. Just one decade ago, I might have been late for my dentist appointment if I realized that the previous night I had forgotten to ...

The city that saved Mark Wahlberg

I was talking yesterday with my super-awesome cousin Jessica about how I like Mark Wahlberg (as an actor) ever since he played the role of “Tommy Corn” in I Heart Huckabees (2004). Wahlberg’s character Tommy Corn was a Fireman and environmentalist who rides his bike everywhere because he can’t bring himself to consume petroleum and ...

Dadgum Racists

I re-watched the Borat movie again tonight and I really wonder how Sacha Baron Cohen got away with the pranks he pulled. He risked his life on several occasions, especially the scene at the rodeo. After reading some websites about how Borat got away with duping these people, I found some interesting quotes from the ...

Got free Healthcare? 4

I watched the movie Sicko the other night, and in my opinion it surpasses Bowling for Columbine as Michael Moore’s best film. In this film it is apparent that Moore has matured as a documentary filmmaker and his ability has evolved from tabloid-like cheap-shots into an essay-style documentary. In the past, Moore resorted to distorting ...

Only a cleaning of our whole society can remove this sickness from our soul 2

Since the weather wasn’t adequate enough to partake in any outdoor activities today, Han and I watched the movie “Bobby“; a film written and directed by Emilio Estivez that revolves around the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy. I didn’t know what to expect, but I thought it was a really good movie and I think ...

Movie Theatre Bloopers 2

Sometimes when you’re at the theatre watching a comedy, they’ll show outtakes at the end of the movie. Tonight, Han, George and I were at the theatre watching the movie 300. Far from a comedy, and with no chance of seeing outtakes at the end, we were entertained in other ways. Precisely at the most ...

Movie trailer voice over guy

Today’s entry comes from a co-worker who I call “office Bob”. I have often wondered about who the voice is behind all movie trailers and previews, and today I was enlightened when “Office Bob” sent out an email with some information on the voice behind the movies. Here is Bob’s email: I’m not sure how ...

Loving your family 3

Here are some interesting facts from the movie “March of the Penguins” care of Malcolm. It’s amazing how dedicated Penguins are to their family. - at the end of March (end of summer), walk 70 miles inland to mate, lay egg and raise baby- find a mate when they arrive (each year)- lay egg, mother ...

Happy Gilmour and gas prices 2

On my way home from Florida yesterday I was standing at the airport waiting to get my suitcase from baggage check. There were 2 people standing near me that reminded me of the movie Happy Gilmour. It was a man in his 40′s with a moustache resembling that of Ben Stiller’s moustache in the movie ...
