Picture a whole movie like the very end of Twin Peaks.

What!! No one mentioned "Blues Brothers"?  The greatest "musical" ever made.


I asked Fay to pick out a movie to watch last night, and she chose "The Blues Brothers".   Aside from a couple of cartoonish silly moments, that really is a good musical.

So maybe since she picked it and she's a girl, it loses its credentials as a "Guy Movie"?    And the only movie she REFUSES to watch with me is "Cool Hand Luke", so its credentials are certainly established ....

I thought this was a good film:

Just a reminder here: we are talking about Guy movies- not simply good movies.  (The Machinist is a powerful performance, but it's not a "guy movie")

Just because they are great guy movies does not mean that women must be repulsed by them.

The fact that Fay chose The Blues Brothers does not disqualify the movie. Rather, it is only proof that Lannis, indeed, found a "keeper". Damn- I bet she can TIG weld and swing a chainsaw as well.

  I am presently watching a chick movie. The girl with the dragon tattoo.
  I love it when she comes to an understanding with the guy who controls her money.
  I think I shall buy this one.

I saw the Swedish version and the American version. Both were very well done. Also saw the Swedish versions of The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest. All were on Netflix.

Well, Dennis Hopper wouldn't be a roll model in Blue Velvet, but one might argue that Kyle MacLachlan could be.  My son was 13 or 14 when he saw it, and now he's a great kid who is a junior at NC State with a 4.0 average.  The reason I like it so much is Lynch's writing and direction.  It kept me on the edge of my seat most of the way through, alternating between laughing and terrified.  Sorry Greta didn't like it, but that's understandable, since it's obviously not for everyone.

The Dragon series is definitely not a chick flick nor a man flick. It is just a great trilogy. I am a freakin freak and have watched each Swedish version 3 times.
The plot and subplots are great.

How do you understand the Swedish version?  Is it dubbed in English, or does it have subtitles?  Or maybe you speak the language.j

And I know you were kidding, but I was cringing when I typed that about my son.  It did support my point, so I felt it necessary.   :)

Harvey has a dog that translates , or more accurately it translates the dialogue to cat , and then the cat translates the dialogue to English  :D

"MOVIE INFO
Brad Anderson directs the psychological thriller The Machinist, a production of Spain's Filmax company. Christian Bale plays Trevor Reznik, a factory lathe operator who has developed a serious case of insomnia. Lack of sleep has already started to wear down on his brain and his body. When he's involved in an accident at work, his co-workers turn against him. He starts to find strange notes in his apartment and see people that apparently aren't there. Jennifer Jason Leigh stars as call girl More"

...psychological thriller....factory lathe operator....call girl. I thought it was a guy movie. Certainly not a Wuthering Heights type movie.  ;)

Oh man I was just messing with you. I am really sorry if I embarrassed you and made it sound like your were bragging. Shit man I'd be puttin up billboards if I had a kid with a 4.0 at State. Crap I do not even have a kid but like Dusty says I got a smart dog. A border collie is smarter than anything except they are stupid as shit cause they have no safety judgement. They do not care a bit about their bodies. It's all about going as fast and fur-ious as they can and if the crash so what. They make up for it with afterburners.
But really Jim I'm sorry for jerking your chain. And yes the Swedish version is subtitled. I am lucky to be unilingual. And good for you and your smart kid  man.

No problem at all about the kid in school thing, I knew you were teasing.  

We started the Swedish version this evening and when it had subtitles we killed it.  Not because we don't like subtitles, but because we were making Crepe Calzones on an electric griddle in front of the TV, and knew we couldn't concentrate on the dialog and cook at the same time.  Boy they were good.

Oh, and I've met your Border Collie a couple times, and the afterburner description is good.  We have an Australian Shepherd, and she's similar in the energy department.  Whenever anyone or anything comes into the yard, be it a person or UPS truck, when it tries to leave, the dog tries to herd it back into the yard at any expense.  Too bad we aren't raising a herd of sheep or goats or voles or aardvarks.

 There is not much dialog in the girl tattoo movie but I did really like when after she rescues her partner from torture she leans down close to him
 and quietly asks. "May I kill him"?

funniest movie I've seen in years.  So many good lines.  I'm going to have to see it again to catch what I missed the first time.

I've not seen the Swedish version of the dragon movies. I understand they are better, and the local small town library has them. I just don't have (take) much time to watch movies. Loved the Blues Brothers. *Everyone* in that movie are musicians, a fact that I only realized while watching it straight several years later.. ;D :BEER:

I've been loving the trailer for this one.  Now it's a must see.  Just the review I needed.
