model citizens carrying on (e.e.c.) entertaining educated conversation about a film and differing reactions to it...refreshing

fuck you montage...delightful

tony siragusa...frightful

pepper...best yet

hoffman...my pet

anna...tasty treat

rosario...sweeter meat

spike...doing the right thing

25th hour...worth buying
my cause is the cause of a man who has never been defeated, and whose whole being is one all devouring, god given holy purpose

okay something i just noticed about the movie.  is it just my copy or at the 29:08 mark Ed says "No, be my guest", to the DEA officers and the lip synch is completely off.  like, you hear him finish his sentence before his lips move.  am i the only one who notices this?  how the hell could something like this slip by?  its in chapter 5 "uncomfortable sofa" for anyone who wants to check this out for me.


Yeah, I noticed that too. No bigee. Nice to see a shitty mistake in a big budget movie for whatever reason. Doesn't hurt anything in the scene, anyway.


Sooooooo, I'm a little late, but I just saw this. Fucking loved it. Loved it. Top dog. Pepper I usually don't like, he was perfect for his part. Dawson is a BABE -- I had no idea. Norton once again proves he is one of the best leading men working today. Hoffman proves once again he is the best, period.

Spike, what can I say, did the deep-black nice sharp saturated colors jump-cut-for-fun shit.... and made it work. This man can sustain an emotion. Great great great. Also, bonus points for saving a hurt puppy dog.

Will buy it, will watch it again. Even though I am a year (and a half, or so) late. :wink:
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

So the men as praised for their acting, and the actress is mentioned just for looking hot?
