I liked the first one, didn't like the 2nd one.
"THe Mandarin" is an awesome character in this. THere's a good scene with him and a bathroom and two hot chicks. I won't tell you more lest I ruin the fun.
Nick would agree that the second one was lacking (I didn't like the Don Cheadle character at all).
Thanks. Oh good. I'll probably like the 3rd one if he liked it but thought the 2nd one was lacking.

Nick also said that Downey Jr. gets like 5% of the profits of the movie. Considering that the third installment has already made several hundred million dollars, he was smart to put that in his contract up front when this all started.
Yeah, he does. Any movie. He got that same percent for the avengers I think.

I mean any movie where he plays iron man, of course.

Oh, and Sub: I do not like movie previews because they give WAY too much away, but the preview for the new THor movie LOOKS AMAZING.
Also, the new Kickass movie looks effing awesome.
Cool. I've liked pretty much all the marvel movies, except captain America I wasn't too crazy about.

I haven't seen the 1st kick-ass. I'll have to check it out.

I hope to get out and see more adult movies now that my kids are getting older. With this group of buds I'm meeting tonight, we are actually going to try to meet up once a month for drinks and dinner and then see a movie. Tonight is the first night.

My buddy who organized it is so fun to hang with and so is his gf. She was my real estate agent ... that's how we became good friends with them ... they party like rock stars.

He posted on facebook on Cinco de Mayo something to the effect of, "you know it's time to leave the Mexican restaurant when Angie (his gf) starts asking the waiters about Mexican gang signs." She had one too many margaritas. Bambi and I were laughing our a$ses off. They are a riot.

My guys here at work do that! Each month, a different guy has to plan the night, and buys the first round.

Kickass: THIS MOVIE IS AWESOME. Hilarious, full of energy and stunts and effects. And to hear a 12yo girl use the C word is so shocking you can't help but laugh. So yeah, you need to see it before the next one comes out. Nick and I both loved it. My comedians on the movie podcast loved it, too.

I counted at least three Marvel comic movies in the previews on Sunday.

Yes, they would have. At least on my car, when the child safety locks are on, you cannot open that door from the outside. The driver's door has a button to unlock all the other doors.
Likely, so would have the remote(key), which this driver should have been aware of, even after only two months.....i think this guy froze, and it was fatal.....

What does the limo driver's race have to do with that story, unless you were just stretching to segue from one topic to the next?
I don't usually respond to your posts because I really have a hard time making sense of them, but this one is just ridiculous.

I think he panicked, too. I know the women are Filipino and college educated (nurses, including surgical nurses), but maybe there was an issue with language or accents? One woman said she was telling him there was smoke in the limo, and he said "I thought she was asking if she could smoke, and I told her it isn't allowed."

I can't believe that he would wilfully allow this to happen. He has nothing to gain from it. Panic (and some confusion) probably explains a lot.

I'll see what I can do to catch up.

i showed up to softball at 5 for a 6 p.m. game (why sit around at work?). By 5:40, both teams had people there and neither was the team I was looking for (only one diamond). The guys thought she may have given me the wrnog field and the other one was on the otherside of the freeway (several miles away). So I went home.

Turns out, the game was at 7, but she never told me that utnil an email today, which I didn't even notice. I assumed it was at 6. I don't sub for games after the 6 p.m. game time unless they're on this side of town.

So lost a chunk of my night, then got it back, and came home -- this place gets SO MUCH LIGHT! It's great. Took Mia outside in the backyard, where she was in heaven rolling around in the dirt and grass.

Now it's time for a cocktail.

I saw that, but it really doesn't matter; I only get to see it on on-demand anyway. It's getting good!

squishy: I have seen so few episodes (not even 10), I feel like I should stop and start from the beginning, but I look forward to watching them when I can.

What do you think of Grimm's girlfriend/fiancee? I admit, I don't like her and I just keep thinking how skinny she is (like, too skinny), and I fixate on that when she's on the screen.

Nah, I'm back to work for now. Interviews went fine, haven't heard back yet. Dude ain't going nowhere soon. There's a chance I might end up in South Carolina.

I had that initial reaction too but I seem to like her better in the 2nd season. <mimishrug>

Nick is cute but I'm all about some Captain Renard. Even if he's a sorta baddie.
