      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Did a nasty weather double header yesterday with American psycho and "Gringo". The latter is pretty damn interesting as it tells the macafee story up to the point where he was the second in line for the libertarian party last year.  He will always be first in line for psycho asshole, and the guy he had murdered was a sailor it looks like. Takeaways include don't poison your psycho neighbor's dogs, and the fact that you will never look at a hammock in quite the same way again.  Also interesting is that most belizeans from hit man to hot dog vendor speak pretty good English , making the primary sources that much more compelling. Three tasers and a nail gun up.

Oh, come on.  It was better than that, wasn't it?  Even rogerebert.com gave it 3.5 stars.  I watched it without knowing anything about the basic premise.  Glad I did.  Has to be the weirdest, most original buddy flick I've ever seen.  Daniel Radcliffe and Paul Dano were brilliantly surreal.  I wish more A-list actors would go way out on a limb like Radcliffe.  

It's been a few months since I Primed it.  Think I'll have to stream it again.  Thanks for bringing it up.

Well roger is rarely off track with my taste. I will try again. Ending was a real downer for me anyway. Maybe I missed something critical. He gave it 3.5 huh?

So a-list actors out on a limb. Burt lancaster in atlantic city. Keitel in bad lieutenant. Sheen in apocalypse now. Raul julia in kiss of the spider woman. helen mirren in the cook the thief his wife and her lover. isabella rosellini in blue velvet. Laura dern in wild at heart and citizen ruth. Heston in touch of evil.

And for Balkans pre-math and darkly funny "Underground" 1995.
