10 Movies That Make Me Lose the Will to Live

It’s not that these movies are completely unwatchable – some of them might look pretty.  It’s just that evening thinking about these things seems to make me question where my soul has gone.

1.  2001 – A Space Odyssey

“I’m afraid I can’t do that Dave”.  the only thing that is even remotely memorable from this snorefest.  It might have been wonderful movie making technology in 1968, but its a sure cure for insomnia today.

2.  The Lord of the Rings Trilogy

I think the problem is the original material they are dealing with.  I have tried 3 different times to read the Lord of the Rings books and after 30 minutes I’m still on page 3 and can’t concentrate on the material so I quit.  The movies put me to sleep.

3.  Anything by Quentin Tarantino

I don’t know where this guy grew up – and heaven forfend that anybody else still lives there.  After hearing about the Kill Bill movies I didn’t even watch.  Pulp Fiction was disgusting, degrading filth; Reservior Dogs was a gory mess – its just not even worth wasting your time watching anything he’s involved with.

4.  An Affair to Remember

Cary Grant plays the character of our New President Messiah today.  Too cool for school smartass who thinks he’s smarter than anybody in the room.  And there’s a reason men don’t get this movie – its boring beyond words.

5.  The new Oceans Movies

The first one was interesting only to see that Chinese guy fold himself in half.  The rest are just a bunch of Hollyweird twits walking around and earning millions of dollars for looking pretty.

6.  Lost in Translation

So an all-expenses paid vacation in a high-tech luxury world is too much for you Scarlett?  Try working for an actual living and then see what you have to whine about.  And does anybody in the universe believe that somebody like her would end up with a dead-looking Bill Murray?

7.  Sabrina

And I mean both the original with Audrey Hepburn from before I was born and especially the excruciating remake with Harrison Ford as “wooden guy who has no expression”.  Time actually reverses itself as this thing is being watched thus trapping you in an eternal loop of despair and boredom.

8.  Any of the “Home Alone” movies

The smack of steel against flesh.  And the conceit that little twerps are always smarter than adults.  Begone you little twit – and take your ignorant parents with you!

9.  Anything by Woody Allen since Annie Hall

Yes, we get it.  You like New York and young girls.  Very young girls.  You are a dirty old man.  Other than that you haven’t said anything worth noting in decades.  Just play your clarinet and leave us alone.

10.  The Way We Were

Pretty much anywith with Babs is unwatchable pap, but this one takes the cake.  Commies win WWII and make movies while cheating on their spouses and being spied on by Joe McCarthy.  With that song which will make your ears bleed.

Monitoring

Personally, I don’t think this is such a bad thing:

It turns out the feds have been monitoring Interstate 5 for nuclear “dirty bombs.” They do it with radiation detectors so sensitive it led to the following incident.

“Vehicle goes by at 70 miles per hour,” Giuliano told the crowd. “Agent is in the median, a good 80 feet away from the traffic. Signal went off and identified an isotope [in the passing car].”

The agent raced after the car, pulling it over not far from the monitoring spot (near the Bow-Edison exit, 18 miles south of Bellingham). The agent questioned the driver, then did a cursory search of the car, Giuliano said.

Did he find a nuke?

“Turned out to be a cat with cancer that had undergone a radiological treatment three days earlier,” Giuliano said.

Actually I’m amazed that the feds are actually doing anything.  Of course the weenies at the Seattle “Would invading my privacy in this way allow the feds to find my dope stash?” Times are wetting themselves at the thought that someone might actually be watching our borders for smuggled nuclear material.  Of course they then prove the point that monitoring might actually be good by this little nugget at the bottom of the article:

Giuliano says the point really is to catch terrorists. He says it’s true that the odds of catching one here may be “a billion to one. But despite that, we have caught two.” (Gazi Ibrahim Abu Mezer, who tried to sneak in at Blaine in 1997 to blow up the New York subway; and Millennium Bomber Ahmed Ressam, nabbed at Port Angeles in 1999.)

Don’t you just wonder what those two have in common besides trying to sneak into this country to kill people?  I wonder what kind of profile they might fit if we were to profile those who wanted to sneak into this country to commit mass murder?

And if they can find a cat who had a cancer treatment three days ago – just why can’t they find whole human beings who are crossing the southern border illegally?  The answer is that they could if they wanted to–they just don’t want to find those kind of people.

French Foreign Minister – Doesn’t Understand the Bomb Thing

Bending over for Hamas terrorists, Bernard Kouchner demonstrates why no one believes anything France says:

French foreign minister Bernard Kouchner was in Gaza yesterday and made a total jerk of himself. Kouchner told reporters that Israel shouldn’t inspect trucks from Gaza because ‘not all of them are carrying bombs.’

How does that work out at French airports? Do you want to just inspect “some” of the luggage and hope that you found the ones with the bombs? Idiot.
