Man, did I enjoy this movie. All the acting was just terrific. The terrifying Nazi, gorgeous theater owner.. Brad Pitt was hilarious - he's always fine when he stays away from serious leading roles. Who would've known his Eye-talian would be so good.

Not too violent? (It's the only thing keeping me away.)

Well, there is a bit of violence. Nothing too surprising coming from Tarantino. There's not as much violence as "Kill Bill", and not really as much as a graphic war film.

inglorious was amazing. i highly recommend this film. less violent as far as "violence for the sake of violence" except the ending scenes...but hey it is worth it, trust me. historically accurate? Well no, not even at its best except that world war two did indeed happen and there was a nazi propaganda machine. and im sure france was at one point a valid country. ok im kidding, but hey, see the damn movie.

Agreed!

Great Great movie! It ranks up there with his best. Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs. This one is a lil more subtle and not as self-aware of his other movies. I mean it's dang cool but it's not saying "Hey, I'm cool" like his other flicks. It's like Pulp Fiction mixed with the Godfather. Basically the most tense movie you will see, all dialogue driven.

I think I have sat and watched this about 5 times this week... and I've probably listened to it at least 5 more.

As many of you know I'am homeless so the only thing I'am watching is reality and it's pretty COOL not bieng plugged into the WALL in one form or another..... I notice people start to relate everything in thier life to some show or news event.. when they are connected to the MEDIA....
I have gone over Twenty Years without a vehicle (out of choice) and I do not have a Phone Cell or otherwise (out of Choice) and when I do have a home I do not watch T.V. use a Phone or listen to a Radio or buy newspaper's... all out of choice.... I guess I'am kinda WIERD ... outta CHOICE.
When the internet came out I did'nt really care for it but know I think it may be the modern CAMPFIRE where we can share Idea's, Music, and Thought's on today's world situation and that it maybe the one thing that can help pull us all together and save are DUMB ARSE"S...

Yeah, I fell on the side of "thumbs down". The story was rubbish and I wasn't crazy about any of the musical interpretations. Basically a set of music videos without an interesting idea to tie them together. Aside: I've been relistening to The Beatles catalog and I think "Lovely Rita" is a fantastic little number that I've somewhat ignored in the past.

I've started watching The Office. It's taken me about 3 weeks to get to the middle of Season 5. That's the fun of 20 minute episodes.

I agree. Thumbs down.
I think "Rita" and "Good Morning" were the gems from Sgt. Pepper for sure.

Festival Express Great footage of Grateful Dead, the Band, Buddy Guy, Janis Joplin and tons more all jamming on a train on the way to the next festival stop in Canada. I'm watching it now and really digging it

Some of the train footage is priceless. Rick Danko singing himself hoarse with Janis while Jerry Garcia plays along is pure magic.

We watched that (Temple Grandin) on Friday night. It was incredible - - - I was completely glued to my seat for the whole movie.

We finished up season one of Treme last night. It is a series from HBO and I highly recommend it.
