It's Saint Paddy's Day! I wonder how crowded our karaoke bar will be tonight?

Look! Ain't Éire just beautiful from space? This is the Emerald Isle:

Oh man. I thought Alpha Dog was going to be a violent bloody gorefest, but instead it was one giant flick about partying young white kids, which is sadly based on a true story. I dunno how director Nick Cassavetes kept my attention, but I was riveted to the film; I gotta say I was fixated by most of the performances! Justin Timberlake is superb and we got a maniacal awesome role by my newfound crush, Mr. Ben Foster of X-Men 3 and 3:10 to Yuma fame. Damn, Ben has got one awesome body and those eyes! I just can't get enough of that boy's eyes! JESUS! WHAT A PSYCHO! LOLOLOLOL! He's so criminally insane, but I can't help to be attracted to him! I can only hope now that Ben will team up with Jakey G. in some crime drama picture where Foster plays the serial killer or something and Gyllenhaal the cop. Can u imagine? I'd blow my wad just buying a ticket at the box office and waiting in line! Yeah, Alpha Dog man. A good movie, but terribly heartbreaking and devastating. Yeah, I almost fucking cried.

And call me one giant big kid, but I also watched the Walt Disney 1961 animated classic, 101 Dalmatians, and I think it'd been over 25 years since I last saw this picture as a mere child. It is just too cute/adorable and the British accent voiceover work is first-rate. A fine witty little story indeed; some villain too, that Cruella de Vil! Did you know the movie/story is based on an actual 1956 novel by author Dodie Smith?

Okay now, wear green today or risk a pinch.

top of the evrathin back to ya!! slainte!

think there's a copy of alpha dog in 'the family' with your recommendation will have to watch it!

and who'd have known 101 dalmatians was a sequel (at least the novel by smith was)...truth be told I'm a total sucker for (good) kid movies - will probably buying a copy of enchanted when it comes out tomorrow on dvd - twas a fun movie and a delightful homage to so many classic disney movies.

I'd think it would be nice to have a pinch or two today. I'll check out Alpha Dog.

101 Ds was the first movie I can remember seeing.

Eternal SP day question: Does drab olive = green?

I haven't seen alpha dog yet. Someone told me to stay away so I figured it wasn't good but I might go ahead and p-p-view this one.
