    Lie To Me - season 1

    Last night I watched the interview that Paul Ekman - Cal Lightman's alter ego - gave five years ago. It was very enlightening about the path he took to his study of facial expressions. It is no surprise that he has advanced degrees in psychology. One thing surprised me when late in the interview...

    Lie To Me - season 1

    The writers can go in several directions with Gillian. They may play it that she is in denial and is using an ego defense mechanism to not confront the fact. It could develop that her subconscious is aware of the lies and that is the reason for the grips on the arm and back. It would be...

    Lie To Me - season 1

    Let me give this show the kiss of death. I like it. I also liked MY OWN WORST ENEMY, and I did in that show after its thirteen episode run. Tim Roth nails the part of Cal. He needs to be a good actor because his appearance makes Dustin Hoffman look like Troy Donahue. I have to listen...

    *** Official TAKEN Discussion Thread

    Well, not much discussion here. This flick had the most gratuitous violence than I have seen in awhile. Action fans should like it, but here-in lies the problem for me. The Liam Neeson character Bryan Mills is likely ex CIA, but his skill set argues that he had extensive training with Delta...

    My Own Worst Enemy - season 1

    I had the same thought about Henry being with Edward being the spin off. Actually they could both be a split from an original character that was imperfect with the traits of Henry and Edward split to perform different functions. Henry was left in Edwards apartment and "discovered" his alter ego...

    2008 NCAA College Football Thread

    Hate when it does that! TCU has to knock off Utah and Boise State win out to get a trip to the Orange Bowl. A long trip, but I have relatives in Ft. Lauderdale. The offensive line is a fire drill, but the defense is holding opponents under 10 pts a game outside of 32 to Oregon.

    My Own Worst Enemy - season 1

    I don’t catch many TV series anymore, but the trailers for this were interesting so I recorded and have watched it twice through. Reverse and pause in HD is helpful to an understanding of the characters. Gratuitous sex and violence in the opening credits – who could ask for more! First; the...

    Meanwhile, further back in the pack, Boise State dispatched Southern Miss 24-7. We could rise to 8-9 and still not get a BCS bowl bid if BYU gets past Utah.

    *** Official CHARLIE WILSON'S WAR Discussion Thread

    After leaving the film I drove to the book store and bought the book. I have just finished it and now can post. The movie is a quaint rendition of the life of one of the most colorful and powerful members of the House of Representatives – not only of his era, but of all time. Seymour...

    NCAA College Football 2007

    If I hadn't gone to the Fiesta Bowl and to the Washington game I would have considered going to Hawaii for the greatest game in WAC history. If Boise State wins and doesn't get a BCS bid it will be disapointing, but not the end of the world. If the Broncos win I'll have to track down Dennis...

    A Mighty Heart

    My wife had read the book so she took me to the movie this week. In the aftermath of 911, there was concern that the Pakistanis might not be as motivated to pursue terrorists as was the U.S. Here is a story of a Pakistani police captain (Irfan Kahn) who is dogged in his investigation of a...

    The 'DIE HARD' appreciation thread.

    I have a question also: When Gruber goes upstairs by himself later in the movie and is confronted by McClane, does John recognize him right away and just pretend that he doesn't? Seems to me that McClane would recognize that very distinctive voice right away. This would seem to be the case since...

    The 'DIE HARD' appreciation thread.

    Dwayne: We're gonna need some more FBI guys. The DVD with special features provides a lot of great background information. I always loved the Nakatomi board room with the stone walls and the reception desk in the lobby. Great Japanese theme.

    The 'DIE HARD' appreciation thread.

    Personally, I think he's in a bad mood when he does negative reviews like these for obviously great and incredibly entertaining films because his writing in those reviews just doesn't sound like the casual and accepting man that he usually is when it comes to films like DH and Predator...

    Hans Gruber: You ask for a miracle, I give you the FBI Holly: After all your posturing, all your speeches, you're nothing but a common thief Hans Gruber: I am an exceptional thief, Mrs. McClane. Big Johnson – Little Johnson Hans Gruber: Uh, no I'm afraid not. But you have me at a...

    Books You've Read in 2007 (merged)

    Triple Cross by Peter Lance It completes his troika starting with 1000 Years for Revenge and Coverup 911. In the 1960’s Catch-22 was the smart hip black satire on bureaucracies. It picked on the military because then as now it was politically correct. The movie missed being as influential as...

    How do celebrities develop such cool signatures?

    At the financial institution where I work, I am constantly looking at signatures on documents. 100% of them are bland and lifeless signatures. But if you've ever gotten an autograph from a celebrity such as a professional athlete, the lettering is always wild and free and immaculate. I used...

    What are those big poker chips used in 007 Casino Royale?

    Funny, I just got back from watching it myself. I think the blue they were million dollar chips, the red five million. I hadn't seen a Bond flick in 30 years. This was very good. Easily beats MI I,II,III. I had read the reviews and got a kick out of the 1964 Austin Martin. Nice touch...

    How do celebrities develop such cool signatures?

    Your signature is your psyche. Large initial letters of the first and last name indicate a strong large ego. Celebrities certainly qualify for this trait. Small writing indicates someone who concentrates deeply and is introspective. Large flowing writing indicates someone who is outgoing and...

    Gary Larson - Offensive?

    A strip that looks to be a cheap knock off of The Far Side is In The Bleachers by Moore. My wife gets a chuckle out of it every day, but I remember she never got The Far Side. For me The Far Side is Kobe Beef, and In The Bleachers is the soy burger they served my kids in grade school. We...

    NCAA Football 2007 Season

    For Boise State, the end of an era, and a new beginning. We can no longer be a Cinderella team. With expansion of the stadium facilities and national recognition, the next rung on the ladder will be a worthy goal, but may not bring the satisfaction as winning one of the greatest college football...

    BCS of Bust! Boomer had sooner we/Boise State had played a good game and then folded up. The front page of the local Idaho Statesman is a full page spread of Zabransky holding the gold football Fiesta Bowl trophy. I was looking close to see if there was an old WAR font crossed out with...

    Is the SR-71 still the fastest aircraft?

    While stationed with the Air Force in Okinawa in 1970, the B-52’s were withdrawn. Nothing made as much noise taking off or landing as the eight engine bomber that was not concerned with sound abating technology. After they left the only plane that made that same sound was the SR-71. It would...

    NCAA Football 2007 Season

    I understand Boise State fans being upset but at least you guys are playing a team where you can prove yourself against. Louisville, who got beat by an undefeated team, on the road and at the last second has to play a weak ACC team that isn't going to get them any respect. Louisville deserved to...
