Royal Tenenbaums has been on Starz a lot lately and I just can't turn that movie off.

The end of it always chokes me up a bit. When Zoolander tells Lex Luthor he's had a tough year, it gets to me for some reason...

I was watching Invincible the other night; there's a scene where Papale's dad talks about how when the Eagles won the title in the '40s it helped him get through going to work at a factory for 30 years and his wife being sick. Decent speech anyway, but with my dad's health, it just made me think of all the Met games we've watched/gone to together.

I always wanted to be a Tenenbaum.

Great great movie, and one of the few guaranteed dusters in my library.

haven't seen marley and me, but this weekend we took our kids to see Hachiko: A Dog's Story. i think in the US it's going to end up straight to DVD. there was a dog in the 1920s-30s in japan that kept going to the train station every day to wait for his master to come home after the guy had died. the movie takes that story and moves it to the US in present time. richard gere and joan allen (looking damned fine for her age) were the leads. there's a scene toward the end where it jumps forward a few years and you see the dog, now old and limping, slowly working its way to the spot at the train station where he waits every day. i think every single person in the theater was crying at that one.

Apr 25
the opportunity cost of knowing how to preheat an oven is pretty puny compared to anything else

There's a statue there. I think it's off Shibuya station or something like that. It's a story probably every Japanese person knows.

I do love that, too. And then the wedding scene with all of the photos of the fallen astronauts gets me, too. Seriously, give me a cheesy action flick and I am crying like Marty Schottenheimer.

Damn, that is rough. I won't even bother seeing movies like that since Ol' Yeller when I was a kid. Something about pets, especially dogs, dying is worse than anything for the ol' heartstrings. :sniff:

For me it's kids. If you see a kid crying because the kid lost his pet, then it will probably move me as well. However, if I see Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston crying over a dog, then my heart hardens and I change the channel.

I loved this book when I was in grade school. Probably read it 10 times. Later in life, I bought the movie online, but never watched it. The VHS tape was red, and my roommate found it in my room, and was disappointed when he popped it into his VCR, that it wasn't a porno. I'll have to actually watch it someday.

It's sad. It really is.

And I also loved the book when I was in school.

Why the fuck do dog stories always end in death? Where the Red Fern Grows, Stone Fox, even My Dog Skip though Skip at least lives a long life and dies in his sleep.

Because that's the only way you dumbass dog people watch them.


Why do they end.....it's like asking why are strippers fucked in the head, why do coke dealers have shitty friends, why is inflation the most insidious tax of them all. It just is.


[/where the red fern grows is a great book. I have no interest in anything to do with anything named Marley unless it's preceded by Bob or proceeded by Matlin. Ohh, Marlee, you sexy deaf bitch.]
