Movie Meme!

Ok, Dan tagged Robert, who tagged me.

We tweet, you see, and it's lunch time, so i will bite.


Here’s how it works:

1. Pick one film to represent each letter of the alphabet.

2. The letter “A” and the word “The” do not count as the beginning of a film’s title, unless the film is simply titled A or The, and I don’t know of any films with those titles.

3. Return of the Jedi belongs under “R”, not “S” as in Star Wars Episode IV: Return of the Jedi. This rule applies to all films in the original Star Wars trilogy; all that followed start with “S”. Similarly, Raiders of the Lost Ark belongs under “R”, not “I” as in Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. Conversely, all films in the Lord of the Rings series belong under “L” and all films in theChronicles of Narnia series belong under “C”, as that’s what those filmmakers called their films from the start. In other words, movies are stuck with the titles their owners gave them at the time of their theatrical release. Use your better judgment to apply the above rule to any series/films not mentioned.

4. Films that start with a number are filed under the first letter of their number’s word. 12 Monkeys would be filed under “T.”

Here we go:

(I made this hard on myself by trying to list only movies I own, *'s, i dont own)

A. Armageddon (haha, Sephiros!)*

B. Boondock Saints

C. Chasing Amy

D. Dogma

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
- Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae

RIP Grandpa

Keith Olbermann can say it better than i can.

I hadnt seen Keith Olbermann until the recent election. Gravitas, he has it.

He is a pro at this, and he echos my sentiments on the matter.

Welcome to the party, EA.

"We’ve learned a lot about casual entertainment in the past two years, and found that casual gaming defies a single genre and demographic," EA said in a statement.

No shit. This is what gamers were telling all the business people that coined this phrase when started getting popular.
Thanks for getting up to speed, EA.
