Except for the ending where [SPOILERS] the american government basically told the writers "terrorism can't win change the ending" so they had to give the movie a shitty ending. You can see they were forced to change it too, the way that the genius mastermind conveniently forgot to make any backup what so ever for the eventuality that they'd just walk into his rented land, or how Jamie Foxx was able to find and diffuse a bomb, drive all the way back to Butler's home base, plant the bomb, and get everything into place all within the time it took Gerard Butler to simply drive back even with a head start. Teleportation much? Also, that cut and paste "what would your wife think" dynamic which left a man plotting for 10 years of his life for this completely stumped. [/SPOILERS]

But everything up until they break into his place was legit. I especially loved that cell phone gag with the judge.

Spoilers below.



I had noticed the ending seemed off, although the dude did have to take a extra long detour (remember him turning off the road on his way back? it was blocked by police) which Jamie Foxx would likely have just talked his way past. He also didn't diffuse the bomb, he drove it there while it was armed.

Spoilers be here.


Well he disassembled the bomb and figured out how it worked. The police roadblock really did seem like some hastily thrown together excuse for what happened, and even then Gerard Butler seem to have circumvented the roadblock before Foxx even left. I'm not here to criticize logistics though, I'm just pointing out how there is a lot of evidence that the story was forcibly changed. Judging by the great writing job of the first part of the movie, I'm even left wondering if the writers purposely made the ending seem forced instead of smoothly covering up.

I didn't like it. The plot was stupid and while the action scenes were good they weren't lengthy or plentiful enough to make me ignore the dumb writing.

Livestream: Zero Tolerance on Piracy
The policy probably wouldn't affect us unless we were in the top 20 popular channels during movie night, or we wanted more than 50 people, but perhaps we should consider changing hosts?

About halfway through I got bored and skimmed the rest. It seems like the penalty, though, is that your channel gets taken down. I'd see no reason to switch until caught.

Also, I doubt it will be found out unless someone from here tells them about it, because there's no way there's enough viewers to raise attention.

I don't think it's streaming movies (especially really old, terrible movies nobody cares about), it's more streaming current TV and sports and shit. But yeah, not reason to worry either way.

I just watched The Big Lebowski last night, and Moon today. The Big Lebowski... I am still trying to figure out what the hell happened in that movie. Good movie though.

Moon is pretty awesome. It's weird as hell, and pretty depressing, but I liked it.

ughhhhh
The first twilight movie was almost kind of watchable just about
but I had to see new moon with my mum (I get free cinema tickets) and it was the biggest borefest ever
If you cut out all the lingering glances the movie would be five minutes long

The lingering glances are what make Twilight such a great series! Without them the movie would be much worse. Can't you see how much BETTER they make it? What an important element they add?

You know what I mean: They give lots of opening for the Rifftrax guys to say things. It's as if the whole cast periodically stops and holds up signs that say "MOCK US HERE"

It was really good.

It was amazing, not sure why so many people hated it.
Sure it might not have been what people expected, but it wasn't bad...

Also I'm in love with the Mad Hatter.

I watched the trailer and it seemed to much like American McGees Alice.

That was an awesome game.

1200+ hours in Source SDK, and the Source engine is still a mystery.
