If you had to recommend one Bond movie, what would it be?

I don't even know what to think of this. It was just really well put together. Just interesting to watch. Definitely liked it.

I liked it too.  It seemed pretty off the cuff until he turned into a teenager.  Than a story line started to form.  I could definitely relate to some of the life stages though

Cheers, I feel that I'm not as well acquainted with Bond movies as I should be (pre Goldeneye), I just watched "A View To A Kill" and loved it. I'll watch that one next.

I honestly believe that Casino Royale feels like the most complete and satisfying Bond film both in narrative and tone. It hit the fucking Bond sweet spot for me.

Anyone watching those ESPN 30/30 documentaries on Netflicks? I'm not even a big sports fan but have loved everyone I've watched.

I've watched a bunch of them, most of them are on youtube as well.

what are your favorites so far?

Mine are the Boston College Points Shaving Scandal and the one about Vlade Divac/Drazen Petrovic.  They are all amazing.

The one about athletes going broke is pretty good as well.

Recently watched the one about The Detroit Pistons, good shit.

what did you think of nostalghia? im a huge tarkovsky fan but never got around to that one.

first one i've seen but not the last. its easy to understand why he's such a appreciated director. guess if you're a lunatic, it kinda feel familiar when you watch it.
When you are resolved from the beginning, you will not be perplexed, though you still get the same soaking. This understanding extends to all things.

The Slaying the Badger one is badass. The big wave surfer one is cool too. Oh and The Two Escobars one is crazy--Columbian narco-soccer.

I haven't seen a bad one yet.

I thought four days in October was great. As well as The U and the reggie miller one. They have 30/30 shorts on their website. Shawn Bradley's was pretty entertaining.

Lucy was ok. Seemed rushed but definitely some cool scenes.

But I like any Scar Jo movie.

It was pretty good. Kept reminding me of Rosemary's Baby but in the end wasn't as interesting. Not enough of a twist.
I thought it wasnt just him solo, shouldve stuck with my og thought.

Not a good movie by a long shot, but has anyone else watched Tusk? It has Haley Joel Osment's weird grown up face in it amongst other odd things. Kevin Smith seems to love "comic-con" movies.

Damn that was heavy. I hope Chicago does a public "forgiving" for this dude. His whole life probably got turned upside down. Probably had to change his name. Screw the "curse" that's fucking stupid, this guy suffered a ton and probably still does. I hope he's happy and living well.

I know he's turned down commercials and apparently hasn't been back to wrigley since, but can't really blame him. Any fan in that position would've done the same thing.

Well I'm sure the anger towards him has eased up a little, but those liquored up meat heads out in left field probably still blame him.  Unfortunately the only thing that will make people forget is for the Cubs to win a WS (like Buckner), which doesn't look like it'll happen any time soon.  You truly feel horrible for the guy... that pic of him sitting down getting showered with beer has got to be the most "alone" looking humans you will ever see.  I seriously wanted to hug the guy.

And per usual, nobody ever talks about their gold glove SS booting a routine ground ball which would've been an inning ending double play.  I didn't even know about it at all. 

Fuck the Cubs.

i watched a whitey bulger documentary that's only interesting if yuo're a masshole.
watched 'this ain't california' but instead of being about 'gang green' it was some socialist germany kids meeting regular german kids [and the gonz] and adjusting to life after david hasselhoff huffed and puffed and blew the berlin wall down.
it was not a great movie but during one scene that looked like my old squat in Detroit, a coon looks out a window [we had coons too] and then either a coon or marmot or some cockamamie mammal hops up this ladder onto the roof. that scene of the mammal going up the ladder was the best. wonder how/if he got down?

'the last big thing'. it plays all the time on the indie channel. i kinda have a crush on the red haired girl and the premise reminds me of jim goad and his dead wife when they usedta have that wicked offensive zine in the 90s.

Yeah all the 30 for 30 movies are pretty good. I recommend Unguarded, 4 days in October, and Broke. Those are probably my top 3.

Speaking of baseball, has anyone seen the Up For Grabs documentary. That one is really good and funny. About how 2 guys fight for the Barry Bonds 73rd home run ball for soo long that by the time they sell it it makes no money.

Finally got around to watching the 70's Malick films. Man, does that guy know how to shoot a scene to capture the beauty of the location. Badlands i'd recommend to anyone and has clearly inspired True Romance and Natural Born Killers. Days of Heaven is amazing but is a movie that will be hit or miss for a lot of people.

As for the 30 for 30's, i've seen them all I think except the most recent The U part 2. My Favorite I think is the Best that Never Was that focused on Marcus Dupree, but pretty much all of them are extremely well done.

And Shark Tits, I don't think you have to be a Masshole to find Whitey Bulger interesting. As part of the basis for the Departed (along with adapting Infernal Affairs) and his crazy corruption/political connections he's definitely of interest to many people who like gangster/crime documentaries.
