"In a Lonely Place" with Humphrey Bogart. Extremely well crafted movie. I thought this was much better than Sunset Boulevard

I watched 180 South last year and thought it was good and worth watching, I might be biased because I know most of the characters.

I just watched Secret Yosemite yesterday, a National Geo film. It was good, but again, it was fun for me knowing some of the characters, including Lincoln Else and Chris Mac.

The Mountain is a classic, watched that one for the first time as a kid.

Man on Wire was good, saw that a few years ago.

BUT, Hobo with a Shotgun and Tucker & Dale vs. Evil? Really? I couldn't get through 20 minutes of it. Worst crap I've tried to watch in a long time... but, each to his own I suppose.

If you're looking for violence Seeking Justice has a way better story line with plenty of action.

Wilfred is awesome.

Been trying Hell on Wheels, but it feels too much like they cleaned up Deadwood. I do like more exploration of Native American issues though.

But, goddamn, I wish there'd been another season of Deadwood.

Oh, yes, Jim Gaffigan has several comedy specials on Netlix as well. His newest: Mr. Universe. He manages to be supremely funny while never really trodding into offensive terrain. Not that I'm against offensive terrain, I just admire the accomplishment.

Well, it helps if you're really drunk. Did you drink enough?

This movie premise is that the world was destroyed in a nuclear war many years ago. Now the human race has been almost wiped out and common frogs have mutated into intelligent, bipedal creatures. The human race has been sterilized by the war radiation, and human women outnumber men. Fertile women are a very rare, but fertile men are even rarer. Roddy Piper is an opportunist drifter. This Roddy 'Sam Hell' Piper has apparently left a string of pregnancies behind him. After being captured, he's taken to the evil 'Med-tech' labs where the female staff then forces him into servicing female candidates. Either, he signs a contract to "work" for them fertilizing women, or he has to go back and face the wrath of the evil frogs beings. The Med-tech women put a steel jock strap on him to protect their property. The strap front plate says, "Property of Provisional Government". But, the evil frog people beings have raided a border town and stolen many rare fertile women. It's up to Sam Hell and two Med-tech staff women to get them out of 'Frogtown' and be fertilized for humanity sake.

Haa haa, no I've been on the wagon for a month. I shattered my tibia plateau and alcohol doesn't really promote healing. So, no beer for me for the next few months... boy do I miss those ice cold IPA's. ;)

This Is England

Story about an 11 year old kid whose Dad died in the Falkland war, who gets taken in by punks, then taken deeper in by a skin head. REALLY GOOD. Ugliest kid, but super likable!

Iron Sky, a sci fi comedy with sexy women and Nazis from the dark side of the moon attacking the U.S.. Horrible. Awesome. Horribly awesome.

The new, English take on Sherlock Holmes is frigging great. So far there are two seasons, with three episodes in each.

Fun stuff, that is ...

That Mitchell And Webb Look (superb sketch comedy from the BBC).

Peep Show (a sitcom starring the same people as Mitchell and Webb Look that is filmed almost entirely in first-person perspective. It sounds stupid and gimmicky, but it's actually very clever.)

A fascinating, yet mildly disturbing account of one family's "letting go" of the norm.

Fubar two sucked in comparison to the original. Shame it's not on Netflix streaming.

Season two of Portlandia is on now, and it's as funny as the first season.

There's a series about some of Bob Marleys sons riding ducatis through S Africa. I only watched the first installment so far. It's OK, but I like Ziggys music, so I'll probably watch more.
