I think at this point Office Space is pretty well known. It didn't do that great in theaters but has sold a ton for home video.

Fandango: Saw this a long time ago, don't know what made me think of it again. A coming of age between pals and one last hurrah before going separate ways on the road to life. Had a killer soundtrack as well, from what I remember. Costner was terrific as the lead, and Judd Nelson was great in a supporting role. Just one of those kind of movies that will make you reminisce about the glory days with old friends from high school or college.

we moved back in August. i just finally got around to painting the main bedroom not too long ago so we are just starting to put up posters in there. my girlfriend is a big fan of the artsy movie posters, so we got some cool ones framed up. i know there is one for inception, dark knight rises, and evil dead, but i forget the rest.

Yep, and I believe it is available on Netflix streaming for any who missed it.

Nice, man.

Those are great movie poster choices, from what you mentioned. I've been meaning to get some better frames for a while now. I think that after we move, that will be the nudge I need to see it done.

The Drizzle says:
yea, we've been buying frames a few at a time. she wants all movie posters in frames, in our guest room, which is really just my computer room right now, i have all my gaming/hockey posters. those cant leave the room lol

How about Extract? I liked it pretty well, but it got surprisingly little hype given its pedigree. Usually after a hit or two, the next movie from the same person gets more publicity, not less, but even after Office Space and Idiocracy, no one seemed to care about Extract.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 16, 2013, 1:13:57 PM PST
The thing is, it seems like Idiocracy and Office Space were hits but they both did very poorly in the market at first, mainly because the studio screwed up the marketing, but still. They didn't have faith in the project so they buried it. It's too bad. I'd not even heard of Extract until now. I'll have to give it a shot.

It's kind of like Office Space but in a manufacturing environment instead of an office building.

Perhaps becuase the movie was just OK.

If I've learned anything about the movie industry, it's that the actual quality of something has nothing to do with how much hype it gets.

True dat. How much money has Adam Sandler made, and really, how good are his movies? Must I bring up Jack and Jill.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 16, 2013, 2:49:57 PM PST
Funny people was alright.

Posted on Jan 16, 2013, 2:53:12 PM PST
Home Fried says:
Yeah, Funny People is good, but usually his more questionable films are the ones that become blockbusters. From what I remember, I think Funny People just fell short of making back its budget.

Funny People wasn't really his movie, though. At least not like how That's My Boy, Jack and Jill, Grown Ups, and I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry were his movies.

Spanglish and Punch Drunk Love were also pretty good, but he only acted in those, just like Funny People. Adam Sandler is a decent actor, but a pretty terrible producer. He needs someone on set with the authority to tell him not to do dum things.

Valhalla Rising is on IFC alot. I've tried catching a few times and my wife walks into the room and just rolls her eyes. I can never get a solid, uninterupted viewing.

Oh Teeth is another one, best vagina dentada movie ever.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 16, 2013, 3:29:11 PM PST
LOVED it. Season 1 and 2 are the best.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 16, 2013, 3:29:33 PM PST
I enjoyed Valhalla Rising. Seen it a couple times on IFC. Your wife is not a fan?

nah, she's not into any of those time periods. dark ages, crusades, roman empire.... I can get her to watch Japanese period stuff, but that's only because it's part of her nationality, and even then, she gets bored if it's not a "love story."

She's more into movies like Bridesmaids, Along Came Polly, I Love You Man....but she's read, and LOVES Memoires of A Geshia.

I've still yet to see it in its entirety, but Sunshine seemed like a promising flick. Anybody with an opinion about it?
