    I haven't seen this one Max (I'm not an expert and am not implying that I am), so I can't comment. It's probably designed to influence the 2024 election towards asswipe Biden, but I'll never learn for sure since I am not going to watch it.

    Pure Coincidence.
    I decided to check in and was surprised to see a Tableplay post.
    Was happy to reply.
    Yes, since the VCT site has become a broken record, my interest in reading and making posts here really dropped off. Outside of the Documentary thread you created (I read the Smart Money thread but don't post there much since I very rarely sports bet), and the movie and song reco threads, posting in the other threads isn't much fun. Maybe if there were more casino probability content, it would be more enjoyable to post in the other threads.

    The second civil war movie looks great and I am going to watch it now since the full movie is on youtube - thanks for the reco.

    I went to see it. It really didn't have much of a plot. It was photo journalists travelling to the Capitol like Monet mentioned. There really wasn't any woke stuff, trannies, biracial gay couples or the stuff like that, which seems to be included in all shows lately. If you watch the trailer you pretty much see the movie. It's like 5 dozen trailers linked together to make the movie. I would not recommend it.

    The best part for me was laughing at all the fatasses that got stuck in their recliners at the Palms when the movie ended. The power on the whole 3rd row of seats went out.

    At least this is more of a satire/comedy angle.
    Hollywood is dead and cannot create anything new...

    I watched the movie and thought it was pretty solid. Basically it was prophetic in the way that Idiocracy was prophetic. The Mexican reporter who had an affair with the Senator (Beau Bridges) was told by the director to emulate Barbara Streisand's mannerisms I guess.
    Note to Ben: Ben if you haven't already seen this movie, the actor (Robert Picardo) who played the holographic doctor from Star Trek Voyager is in it.
    Thanks again for the solid reco Monet.
    Regards, TP.

    Movie Reco: Fast Charlie. This movie was James Caan's last movie I think (released posthumously). Pierce Brosnan was the main character and plays the role of a solver/assassin employed by a Mississippi (Biloxi) mob outfit run by James Caan's character. I enjoyed the dark humor. Please disregard this post if you have already seen this movie.

    Hey, wait a minute.

    You say you can't comment because you haven't seen it, then immediately you make a snarky comment which is not only incorrect (see "expert" review by Trump-loving Michael Knowles, above...he set his prejudices aside and seemed to enjoy the flick) but also shows your inability to keep politics from contaminating your view of reality.

    How unfortunate.

    I used the word "probably". I would have expressed an opinion (good or bad as the case may be) as a certainty if I had seen it. I am not going to see this movie so I don't care about Knowles opinion. Similarly, if a sandwich smells like it is rotting, I am not going to taste it and I will state that the sandwich is probably bad. Ultimately, for the purposes of monetary expenditure, along with the decision of how to spend one's time, probabilities must be assigned and implemented as we navigate through our lives.

    That's all well and good: your money, your choices.

    But there is nothing in the movie that is pro-Biden, nor is there anything in it that is pro-Trump: that's part of its beauty: you EXPECT to see a woke political polemic but get a road trip/war movie where ambiguity is the order of the day.

    Very violent scenes...compelling to see hordes of my fellow Americans blown away by other fellow Americans.

    Not too bad since it's free for now on YouTube.
    I don't recall watching this before.
    I may have but I forgot everything about it.
    The movie made me laugh a little bit.
    Supposedly, it's what gave Wes Anderson his film making style.
    The car crashing into the mirror was fun.

    I think that the only real thing about watching movies, and listening to music, is the connection felt to others who are watching, and listening to, the same things. Monet's movies were as otherwise junky at the time, but, to bother with them now is like burying oneself in a very deep hole. A very lonely existence for the sake of pretending to be a big fish in a very small pond.

    If you don't want to watch, or listen, to today's stuff, then just turn the television, internet, or whatever, off, and, set about doing your own stuff now that connects to the now. I did, except for a commercial free internet radio channel that plays only one genre of music that spans all types of music over the generations. Very simple, and relaxing, and, something in the background while I work away at other stuff.
    Every one /everyone knows it all; yet, no thing /nothing is truly known by any one /anyone. Similarly, the suckers think that they win, but, the house always wins, unless to hand out an even worse beating.

    Pulp was pretty damn funny I thought. British humor during its zenith (and not to conflate the sort of humor in Pulp with that of Monty Python or Benny Hill which were in full swing at the time as you may recall and which have significantly different humor to that of Pulp and to each other [Benny Hill being slapstick and Monty Python being absurdist]).

    The irony, all of those shows reaching farther into space, but, there's no one there to experience them, for the first time, the way that they were meant to be.

    Not a Great Movie but it is a Fantastic Film.
    Some of the driving sequences on the freeways is astonishing.
    They were basically breaking traffic laws and filming it.
    I was trying to figure out how they filmed some of the scenes/footage.
    I found out that they were splicing together real-life accidents and fires.
    The movie is a bit chaotic with a lot of jump cuts but it works.
    It's not easy to distinguish the stunts from the real-life footage.
    Researching Henry Blight "Toby" Halicki is worth the time.
    The way he died makes sense.
    At least it was instant.

    Thanks Monet, I haven't seen the original. I'm in.

    Let me know when you actually get to play it!
    I watched the original movie the other day.
    I thought the movie was better the first time I watched it ten years ago.
    I was wrong.
    I don't understand how people love this movie/series.
    I'm really starting to turn into an old curmudgeon lol.
