I got a recommendation for one of the more fascinating documentaries I've seen recently called Resurrect Dead: The Mystery of Toynbee Tiles

http://movies.netfli...8?trkid=2361637

It's about these tiles found on roads for the past 30 years in northeast US and South America that has a message based on theories presented by Arnold Toynbee and 2001: A Space Odyssey that dead humans can be resurrected scientifically on Jupiter. Just as fascinating as the messages themselves is the search for the person creating and laying these tiles.

Saw that the night it got put on there. It was interesting, but kinda like when your a kid and find out Santa isn't real, its like wtf

When I was in High School a friend got a 100% on a D.A.R.E. test and they gave him a D.A.R.E. duffel bag. Two years later, a drug dealer that was a friend of ours at the time asked to borrow something to transport 2kg of cocaine in and he handed over his D.A.R.E. bag. He brought it back to him with an oz of weed in it as a thank you.

I was able to watch a few more of ESPN's "30 for 30" series. Very enjoyable! I know not everybody is a huge sports fan but it's still possible to enjoy them without having a huge interest in sports.


Once brothers was great. Vlade Divac, one of the NBA's most charismatci people of the last 20 years, and Drazen Petrovic, perhaps the greatest European basketball player of all time, all against the backdrop of a crumbling Yugoslavia. Maybe a bit too staged to emotional-sake, but overall, very well done. That Yugo team was insane. Beat Team USA, Russia, started 4 pros. Whew.

Anyone watch God Bless America yet? Pretty dark comedy. What I found funny was when he channel surfing. Everything he flipped to was "real" or a real parody of what is actually on TV, with those almost exact things happening. Really makes you sick.

Obviously there is a scene in the movie some may find offensive, but it was written and filmed way before "that incident". The movie never got much publicity, so I'm glad no one tore into like a uninformed bitch. They find it more fun to rip on Kevin Smith, heh. No one remembers who Bobcat is!

Yeah, saw that the night it got put on there. Had been waiting for it. I love that movie and is so true that it hurts too. I really need to pick it up soon as possible

Agreed. (If I'm interpreting the face right). I thought it was filled with cliche, not all that interesting, and about an hour longer than it needed to be. Super 8 wasn't for me. It was like they wanted to destroy ET by smashing it together with War of the Worlds and about 10 other similar alien invasion movies.

Super 8 is one of those love it or hate it movies. I personally loved it. The alien stuff was a bit cliche but the kids acting and the setting were amazing.

The movie had all the grace and subtlety of a Uwe Boll film.

I love when people act like your opinion is crazy. 82% on RottenTomatoes and 72 on Metacritic, clearly I'm not the only one who liked Super 8.

But it's the internet and its full of people with strong opinions who like to express them in assholish ways.

Yeah. It turns out to be more about the guy who makes the documentary and his journey to find out the truth behind the tiles. Basically the explanation you get is:

I thought Super 8 was rather enjoyable. The score ranges between Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes seem to be adequate to how good of a film it is. I can see why people hate it, though.

I'm an asshole? :(

I thought super 8 was an enjoyable movie that got more praise than it should've because of nostalgia.

No, my post was directed at camoors "Super 8 was fucking awful. Prepare to be disappointed." And other like comments I see here in the movies thread and on other forums.

Saying what you just said: "I thought super 8 was an enjoyable movie that got more praise than it should've because of nostalgia." or things of that nature is a mature way to express that you didn't like a movie.

People on the net have a bad habit of being overly strong/rude in expressing opinions, stating their opinion as fact, insulting/jumping all over people who like things they don't or vice versa etc. I've not seen you to be one of those folks.

Personally, I couldn't care less what movies/games/music etc. someone else likes or doesn't like. So I usually just express my like/dislike respectfully (and briefly) and move on. Any mature discussion which attempts to break down specific things one liked or didn't like about a movie tend to get drowned out by the fanboy types attacking any criticism, and hater types just shouting about how much the movie sucked and how people who enjoy it have shitty taste in movies etc.

I liked Super 8 quite a bit too. Nostalgia definitely played a role in the enjoyment, but that doesn't make the movie less enjoyable for me. On the streaming side, I just started Sherlock tonight, and it's outstanding. I've been putting it off since each episode is an hour and a half, but it's well worth it. Hopefully the series keeps it up.

Going to plug I saw the Devil one more time because it is the movie that got the director, Jee-woon Kim, his job directing The Last Stand with Arnold, coming next year.

He also directed a Tale of Two Sisters, which is on several top ten scariest movie lists.

I also found Super 8 rather enjoyable, it felt reminiscent to movies like The Goonies. It's sometimes refreshing to watch a movie that isn't super depressing.

It'll most likely come a week or so before the new season starts, so sometime in October most likely.

Also, I'm psyched that The Descent 2 is coming to Netflix. It was on there a long time ago, but I never got a chance to watch it and then they took it off. Big fan of the first movie. Wasn't Titan AE on there a while back as well?
