The 300 box set includes posters with movie images, a 50-page style book with movie images and a lucite block with a movie image in it. It has pretty much everything a 300 fan could want, except for the goddamn original comic.

I need to see this movie.  Someone please help me find it, I can't seem to find it anywhere.

There's a good reason for that.  It doesn't exist.

The tiny text at the bottom is from the Dukes of Hazzard movie.

Can you seriously not detect all the photoshopping going on?

I just succumbed to a Netflix free trial to go with my new Xbox.

Oh god I can't stop rating movies  :ohshi~:

Netflix is the best thing ever. Has anyone tried Gamefly, the vidja game version?

I just got done watching Sukiyaki Western Django and ugh, did it suck. Tarantino cannot act, and neither can Japanese people trying to speak English.

My brother was on Gamefly for awhile. It really can save you some serious money, but it's almost impossible to get brand new games via the service. Because they will send you the first-available game in your queue, you end up having to keep only one game at a time in there if you want any chance at all of getting it.

Found it with a full review on a blog of movie reviews, didn't question the context.

Hey, netflix has a 'friends' thing.  Does anybody want to do that?

This. It's still worth it to do, though; After you're "vested" or whatever, you get 10% off all used purchases (including games you decide to keep while renting), plus intermittent $5 coupons to put toward said games. If I could keep myself from buying games outside of the service, it'd be wonderful.

Hell, I'm so behind I could theoretically do all my gaming that way.  And probably will, once I can justify spending any money on it.

It told me it might take up to 1000+ hours for changes to be made. Give or take.

Netflix viewing this weekend:

GITS: Solid State Society
Huh.  Nifty story, extra closure to a series.

Full Metal Alchemist: Conqueror of Shambala
Huh.  Nifty story, extra closure to a series.

Cloverfield
Great special effects.  Was there a story here?

It's more enjoyable if you pretend there wasn't.

I don't know what they were thinking but when the entire cast is unlikeable yuppie doucheshits then it kind of goes counter to their "let's look at the effects on people" point.

Finally got around to watching Fargo tonight.  I'd seen it, years ago, on TV and not in its entirety, which of course is not the way to watch a (good) movie.

I'd forgotten Bruce Campbell had a cameo (sort of).

...The Coens sure make a lot of movies about ransom.

Anyway.  Brilliant damn film; maybe their best.  Brilliant cast giving brilliant delivery of a brilliant script; great juxtaposition of the mundane and the over-the-top; a truly funny movie about the ugliness of man.

Assume everybody's probably seen it, but I felt that needed to be said.
