  1. Wasn't "Ravenous" a disturbing movie, Eth? My wife actually left the room after the cannabalism started. I, on the other hand was laughing like a lunatic the whole time which only hints at how screwed up my taste in movies is. I remember her remarking at the time that my laughing at that movie confirmed my status as a "True Ghoul". :) It was very original, there wasn't much in the way of horror movies coming out at that time, I remember the movie had good "taste" ok, that may have been a ten on the cheese meter....oh well. Have a good week!
  2. Some great shows listed....anyone remember the cartoon M.A.S.K.? I wanted to be Matt Tracker when i grew up:) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQdgbs0IUDg And another one, I rarely run across ANYONE who has heard of this one. The Galaxy Rangers. Probably my all time favorite cartoon as a kid.....these were great!!!! I ran across them a few years ago, all episodes had been put on DVD finally, I snagged all of them and they are still great...here's a link... Being a grown up just sucks somedays....
  3. Great movie. Lance's segment was great, my personal fav was "The Bishop of Battle." Great anthology....
  4. Man, Carnivale...I really enjoyed that show, I was completely bummed out after it got canceled after 2nd season. Didn't ever see an episode I didn't enjoy. Creepy characters, helluva a good plot and the time frame it was set it was ripe for mysticism and mystery. Hadn't thought about that one in a while. I may go throw in season 1 DVDs....
  5. LOL, the newest installment is as addictive as the first COD modern warfare. I've already wasted countless hours playing online and convincing myself that the other players are cheating and that my reactions are not just slower because I'm old.....my five year old son is beginning to get a handle on how to play the XBOX 360. My wife says I have officially corrupted him and that we are both hopeless:)
  6. If there are any fellow "gamers" out there who like the Call of Duty series as I do, Mr. Lance Henriksen did a helluva good job voicing over one of the main characters in the newest installment, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. Lance is the voice of the shady "General Shepherd", an Army Ranger speical forces General who is not quite as loyal to the country as he first seems........the voice fits the character perfectly in my humble opinion....
  7. I can't remember who it was, but someone said about the American justice system "In an American court room you will not get justice, you will only get the law." I've been in law enforcement for almost 14 years now, and I can't agree more. Blow for blow, I'm not sure whose justice system is more flawed, our or Great Britain's, but it would take a very poor justice system indeed to be marked worse than ours in the states. Every once in a while we get it right, but more often than not, someone who should be condemned for life ends up on easy street with no more remorse for their victim than is necessary to sway a parole board.....
  8. Amen on the butchering of remakes. Speaking of crappy ones, I finally got around to checking out the remake of "The last house on the left" this last weekend. I sat through this tool of a movie thinking the whole time, "If Wes Craven were dead, he would be rolling over in his grave...twice". Geeezzzz, what a waste of 2 hours.......can't anyone make a decent remake??
  9. I do think some of the Halloween movies are a bit better than others, but there isn't one I'll turn off if I start watching it. All of them remind me of Halloween as a kid after I saw the first Halloween. You just don't think about Halloween the same after that. Every time I see Michael Myers in any of the movies with that menacing mask, its like a time warp back to 1978 sitting at the drive-in being scared senseless. I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!
  10. Here's one that is funny, yet almost turned out tragic and put my old man in the doghouse for months!!! Halloween 1989, I'm just shy of my 17th birthday. I go to my high school halloween carnival until a little after 10pm. Mom and little sister are with me, Dad is working late so he can't go. We pull into the driveway and see our front door is standing wide open. A little background, my dad and I are both very paranoid of our fellow man, you will rarely, if ever, find a door to the outside unsecured in my family if we are in the house. I notice this immediately and like a good son, tell my mom and sis to stay back even though i can see my old man's truck is in the driveway. I yell from outside the house several times into the open door "Dad, you home? Dad?, No response. No response for several minutes. I then have my mom get in the driver's seat of the car with my sister also in the car. I tell my mom to start the car and be ready to go, I'm going to go inside and look in the living room. I peek inside, my dad's recliner is turned over, several kitchen chairs are kicked over, quite a few signs of a struggle. By this time, I'm almost hypervenilating I'm so scared, I yell several other times for my dad, no response except I catch a sound from the utility room on the other side of living room. The sliding door is closed but I can see the light is on under the door and someone looks to be in the utility room. I yell several more times, still no response. Here's where things get weird. I back out of the house, tell mom what is going on, then go to my dad's shop he has. This shop contains all the tools you could ever want. It also contains a very nice assortment of firearms. I use my key to the shop and select a Colt 1911 .45 handgun, a gun which I have been shooting ever since I was a kid. My dad and I both were into competition pistol shooting (IDPA) if anyone is familiar with the sport and this is the handgun I've used for years. I'm very comfortable with it and am a pretty good shot. I walk back to the front door, with my mother protesting the whole time, no cell phones yet remember....I tell mom to go next door and call the police, I'm going in the house to see if Dad is alright. My mother is freaking out and doesn't really want to leave me, but ends up just sitting in the car while i go in. I proceed down the hallway, a round in the chamber and the hammer back "cocked and locked" trying to remember all of the things i've learned in pistol training classes over the years, nothing going on in the back of the house, no dad. I then start to wonder if maybe dad had a heart attack or a stroke and ended up in the utility room where the cordless phone is. I approach the utility room yelling "Dad" at the top of my lungs. To my surprise the door begins to open verrrrry slowly. I see a hand with a glove on opening the door, and in that moment, i know this is the real deal. I had decocked the hammer coming back up the hallway, but when I see this gloved hand opening the sliding door, I cock the hammer again and just wait to see what happens. I'm completey scared out of my wits. What happens next is my dad comes out of the utility room wearing a ski mask, and wearing his army fatigue jacket. He is also carrying a large butcher knife. My dad walks directly into my line of fire about three feet away. He then looks at me and drops the fake utcher knife on the ground. He speaks in the weakest, most tame voice i've ever heard him use before or since. He says "Shannon, it's your dad. This was just a joke. I was trying to scare you and your mom. I wanted to jump out when you came to check the utility room and give you a scare. Please don't shoot me." I then secure the pistol and let out a deep breath and begin yelling at him. My dad was and still is somewhat of a prankster, but to my knowledge, he has never pulled any further pranks on me. I was literally a half pound of trigger pressure away from most likely putting a bullet through my old man. I have never seen him look so scared in all my life. He has told me several times as the years go by that there was absolutely no doubt in his mind that he was about to die. We laugh about it now, but its still the stupidest thing he has ever done in his life. He readily admits that. I thought my mom was going to divorce him after she came inside and heard what had went on. He staged it very well, but he went a bit too far. True story folks, my mom would be happy to verify it for anyone. She still yells at him for it 20 years later...:) that's my most vivid halloween memory.
  11. Only thing interests me in this show is all the hotties. Been trying to sell my wife on the fact I like the show for its plot but.......don't think she's buying it....no fooling her after 15 years......can still DVR..HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!
  12. I have 4 teams this year, seems like football season is always busy, so many leagues, ten dollars here, twenty dollars there..lol, maybe someday I'll acutally win one of my leagues...but probably not...how about "Profiling pigskins"?:)
  13. Thanks Eth!!! That's why you get paid the big bucks to be an elder:) What a great movie huh?
  14. Can't remember who started the thread a week or so ago about a movie called "Trick r Treat" but wanted to give kudos to whoever it was. I downloaded it this weekend and was very impressed by it overall. No spoilers here, but a definite new kind of Halloween thriller. Whoever recommended the movie, great call, it was one of the better horror flicks I've seen in a while, and I've seen a bunch:) If its available in your area, it's worth the time in imho. Everyone have a safe week. Gunslinger. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0862856/
  15. I'm curious, what would have been the Government motivation for a cover up regarding the OK city bombing? I understand that the political climate in our country was much different on 9-11 than it was in 1995. It is my sincere belief that the only conspirators were cohorts of McVeigh who were never rounded up, unfortunately. McVeigh had the motive, the expertise, and the commitment to set up and execute the OK city bombing. If I remember correctly, he was at the top of his class in just about everything in basic training and A.I.T. during his time in the military. Thoughts?
