So when you say '70s boobs...were they different? Just not fake?
Well, due to a number of factors, both real and fake tits of the 70s did tend to be shaped differently.

Factors, yes. Mind listing those? In alphabetical order, please.

Seven Psychopaths

Favorite movie of the year. Yes, even more than The Avengers. Not going to talk too much about it since I know a few people are looking forward to it quite a bit around here so I don;t want to ruin any bit of it for them, but I absolutely loved it. It's all over the place, but not in a bad way. There are parts that are very violent, funny, meta, emotional, "mind-blowing", and just plain awesome. Something I really wouldn't mind paying to see in theaters again.

Sure

Augmentation Material
Bra construction
Diet
Exercise trends

There may very well be other factors that could be identified but those are the four most influential; the first two are pertinent to the topic at hand while the second couple underpin the differences in appearance of any given physical feature during any given period.

Monster Maker

Liked it, although the ending was wrapped up a bit too nicely.  1940's movie starring that chick from Jungle Goddess and Voodoo Man.  A mad doctor falls in love with the daughter of a pianist.  When the pianist visits the doctor to tell him to stay away the doctor injects him with a disease that turns him into a monster. 

Black Dragons

Watched Ed Wood a while back and there's an extra on my DVD that shows Bela Lugosi scaring a woman reporter.  When she runs away Bela smiles and laughs.  I never realized until seeing that just how good looking he was in his youth.  It was a genuine smile and just transformed him.  It helped me understand how he was married so many times.

Anyway, this movie starred Bela as a mysterious man killing off powerful men.  Didn't find out till the end who he was.  Enjoyed the movie.

Side By Side, a fantastic documentary about shooting movies on film vs digital and the future of film.

  Good for a few laughs, some of the time they don't speak English and I was watching it on Netflix so no subtitles, but in those scenes could pretty much be without dialogue and you'd understand what is going on by the context . 

  It's a fairly insane plot, complex interwoven series of events, with moments of violence.

  I did have to hit FF a few times since they had to put some musical bits in.

Glory (1989, Edward Zwick) spins a formulaic, feel-good narrative over a not so well known part of the Civil War: the experience of blacks fighting for the Union, a story that is told through the perspective of their white commanding officer. Hollywood has notoriously failed to represent minorities over the years, and insofar as the history of blacks fighting in the Civil War is another untold story, this movie is as much about the black experience in Hollywood as it is their experience on the battlefield. Ultimately, though, it cannot tell that story without channeling it through the perspective of the white hero and the dominant, formulaic mode of narrative storytelling.

Setting that problem aside, the film is a rousing drama, creating a number of stereotypical blacks initially at odds with one another before bringing them together into the fold. There’s the Boston-educated intellectual, the dim ex-slave, and most interestingly, the rebel (Denzel Washington), who, if this were a 1970s radical leftist film, would be the hero, but being a centrist film urging everyone to embrace Uncle Sam, is worn down until he joins hands with his oppressors.

But the most disturbing element to this movie lies in its title. This is a film that glorifies war as the ultimate way of giving meaning to life, as a road to honor and respect, and is filmed, especially in its climactic assault on Fort Wagner, with a beauty and a lack of gore that can easily make the impressionable viewer swoon. And that is a cinematic abyss from which there is no way out.
You know, if the space man puma thing turns out to be the correct religion, I for one will be very surprised.

Love Owen, he's no Sassoon but he's still pretty fantastic.

I see there is an Insidous 2 planned: which bit will it derive from?

Yes! The first forty (or whatever) minutes was pretty effective though!

I tend to cut the latter half some slack as well, since I thought it was still pretty creepy. It got really interesting in concept, but sometimes it's good to keep things simpler, much like the first half of the movie.

Still think it's good overall.

Quote from: Wilfred Owen
If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood
Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs,
Obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud
Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues,
My friend, you would not tell with such high zest
To children ardent for some desperate glory,
The old Lie; Dulce et Decorum est
Pro patria mori.
Well he has a way with words that makes me feel like Jim Varney by comparison.

Wasn't intending to show you up; rather, just supporting your sentiment.  Know what I mean, Charles?
I sure do. It was spot on.
