Anyone seen this?

The wife rented it, and I had no interest so I slept through most of it.

Other than oddly mirroring Jude Law's real life problems (especially consider Sienna plays the girlfriend he cheats on), it further perpetuates the bullshit myths of absinthe.

Susan Sarandon serves absinthe via the traditional czech method, except after she adds water their drinks louche to a pale white. However, in the second shot, they remain green. The filmmakers couldn't even get their myths right.

Not only did I hate Susan Sarandon BEFORE Alfie. I hated her even more after seeing that piece of shit movie.

All Hollywood seems to be cranking out is remakes, these days, and they almost never hold a candle to the originals. poop.gif

Or the originals were such pieces of absolute crap to begin with, that one wonders why they bother at all..especially when those remakes always seem to flop at the box office.

The new King Kong is the best movie I've seen in ages.

You should see the Meatnormous breakfast sandwich they have. I think you have to sign a waiver before eating it.

They filmed several scenes from that piece of shit in front of my old apartment. It was a boring movie, and annoying to have them on my block, because as is typical of film productions, the PAs have a bigger ego than anyone else and won't let you walk down the block (even though it's not on the side they're filming).

I almost missed my bus once because the film crew did not want me in the shot. Think about it for a second...a crowded city street, and they've loaded the sidewalk with extras and they think it would be odd for someone to be waiting at a bus stop in the background?

As I bonus, when I saw my bus, I had to run out to stop it, so I think I may have forced another take.

That's all because the Screen Actors Guild has strict regulations about use of extras. They would have had to pay you and you would have had to join the Union, pay an initiation fee, etc... stupid.

I'm in a Union, and I'm mostly pro Union and all that, but some Unions are retarded these days. Like the public transportation employees in my city, who are going on strike tonight because they haven't had a contract for 4 measly days, and don't want to pay a measly 1% of their salary towards health care. My wife is a public school teacher, and they went without a contract for TWO YEARS, and she still makes 20% less than the guy who fixes buses when they break down, and they didn't go on strike!

And then there was that whole thing where the Motion Picture Editors Guild flipped their shit when Robert Rodriguez's credit on Sin City said "shot and cut by Robert Rodriguez", and the DGA flipped their shit when he gave Frank Miller a co-director credit, cuz Miller wasn't in the Union. They actually made him pay a big fine for that. Yeah, that stuff is all REALLY important.
Morons.

George Lucas quit the DGA because they tried to force him to put opening credits on Star Wars.

Sorry, don't mean to get political, just blowing off steam.

Only if I can be a co-plaintiff.

Probably wouldn't be worth it though, I think they're one of the wimpiest unions out there.

While I am pro-Union, I really hope somebody sues the Local 100 Union in my city. The greedy fucks just walked off the job today. Looks like I'm walking to work. Either that or pay $15 for a cab, when it normally would cost me $7. If I see any of their picket lines I'm going to go fart in their general direction.

Bus drivers who are willing to force little old ladies to walk home in the cold so they can get a bigger raise than they were already getting don't deserve anyone's support.

I am currently having issues with 2 unions. I don't have anything against unions, but they bring along political baggage, which I don't care to participate in.

I have 2 unions fighting over the right to organize my modest workforce of 70 people. Funny thing is, I pay about 2 dollars an hour more than the 2 unions contracts my staff have to pay is about 35 bucks a month to cover for medical & dental. And that covers the entire family! I think the union contracts have a co pay of 150 bucks.

Oh yeah, I allow my guys to collect tips which is not in the union agreements. All that boils down to my guys pulling in between 50-80K a year. Under the existing union agreements, my guys would make about 30K+.

And as of right now, my guys haven't had a say in anything. If the unions decide, they will come in and say what is needed to get them to sign.

I keep asking the question: Why try to organize a group that is making almost twice as much as their union counterparts?
