Thought I'd add a non-investing topic. I've watched a few good movies on DVD and I've found that this is probably one of my favourite non-investing things to do.

 

There will be blood: not the main point of the movie, but I can understand how the oil bug can stick to a person. Liked it.

Hurt Locker: my type of movie. Military movie in the desert, disarming bombs.

No country for old men: took me 2 viewings to appreciate it, but I really liked it. Bardem's acting was probably the best part.

Pan's Labyrinth: watch it and prepared to be moved.

Inception: Bought the Blu-ray without knowing anything about it. Have watched it 3 times so far and I still thoroughly enjoy it.

Oh man, those 2 are on my watch list.

 

Last movie I saw in the theatre was The Fighter. I thought Christian Bale did a great job as Dickie Eklund. I'm such a boxing nut, I checked Micky Ward's record on my phone as I was watching the movie. I verified which opponents were real and which were part of Hollywood.

Bale played an amazing crack addict, and fighter who couldn't stop living in his one great, "Sugar Ray" moment in this movie! When I found out he was an English actor portraying a close to Bostonian dialect, I was more impressed. That hottie, Amy Adams, wasn't bad either! The big screen camera loves that one!  ;)

The Fighter is next on my list.  I think Bale's a bit of an ass (with the yelling at that stagehand), but he's still a seriously talented actor.

 

The Fighter was great.  Bale is the best actor out there these days in my book.  (Has Ed Norton made any good movies lately?)  Bale's physical transformation from the Machinist to Batman Begins was insane...and probably terrible for his health.  http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/53457/christian_bales_weight_loss_for_the.html?cat=40

His dedication is actually pretty inspiring. I take my motivation anywhere I can get it!

 

Has anyone seen Exit Through the Gift Shop?  It's got great reviews and is supposedly pretty clever.
