Both movies were too full of themselves.
Gangs of New York -- A bunch of violent stuff happened, none of which made a lot of sense, in a really bad time to live in New York. Meanwhile, something more interesting…"

"The Passion of the Christ
It was the first movie I would have liked to get my money back.
There was one good scene (I try to find some redeming quality in all movies) with Jesus and his mother as he was making a table."
Allan, thank you for contacting me, no not at all, i still watch many movies on addiction, it's been a crazy busy time, we are planning to open a recovery center and that's where all of my time goes, i wish i had more time for eveyrthing, but please keep me posted on the movies and i will do the same.

I use Netflix and I DVR a lot of movies on Turner Classic Movies and Fox Movie Channel. Over the years that has just about covered everything, but occasionally I'll need to use inter-library loan to get a movie. Room at the Top (1959) and Wilson (1944) are two examples that I was able to borrow through the library at the college where I work. They didn't have them, but they send a request to other libraries who ship them in. Great free way to see hard-to-find films!
"I've read Kip Thorne's book. Slicing spinning wormholes in half like a bagel and towing one half across the galaxy to where you want to go would take energy he kind of cheats on getting - but in SF you are allowed to postulate one…"
"The Outfit: I caught it the other night on TCM and thought it was still a good movie, sort of felt it might have influence Tarantino in his crime phase. The ending was a little bit cliched with the happy ending humor, but I could…"
"Warner has set up a sweet operation, that while it's not cheap - isn't overpriced either. Warner Archive has out of print titles that you can digitally download for around $10 or they will burn you a DVD with full case and liner for less…"
"Q is one of the funny ones. For a complete rundown - full spoilers - go here.
You know, 26 of them - I didn't take notes. My copy *ahem* does not have subtitles and most of the films are not in English; although except for G (which I…"
