I thought you had mispelled "Pat's Labyrinth"...  I was wondering why you'd bother to build one of those.

Well, I like dark and disturbing as much as the next guy.  Heck, it's why I hang around here.  I hope being set in Spain doesn't mean they were serving some dark and disturbing Spanish omelette egg-sausage-salsa puree goop breakfast thing during that dinner scene with the guy who looks like somebody in need of the economy size of moisturizing cream.  Or Howie Mandel, before makeup.

Would you buy it?  Would you watch it again? I haven't rented a movie for years...  Those places just seem so "scuzzy"; no offense.  I did buy "Freaks", that ancient film with the circus freaks who turn on the "normal" people who try to scam them...  Talk about old and weird.  I expected more of it... 

Ace; I wonder if a maze for tykes is a "babyrinth"

My labyrinth is called "Bob." 

So, anyway, continue with the movie reviews.  Let's hear about the Film Of The Year; The Departed.  Unless you're talking about the film about Poasters...

I'm sure not going to any theatres, though. Or theaters. Either one.  If I want to my feet to stick to the floor I'll just sit in the kitchen...

Ace; I should try subtitles

You know those grooves on Circulon cookware?  That could be Frying Pan's Labyrinth..
The jester struggles to make a joke of something that is difficult to joke about

Anyway, I'll buy the Departed.  That sounds like my kind of movie.  Maybe I'll pick up some new words from the dialogue.  I hear it's pretty ripe.
Embarrassed by his earlier comic failure, the jester struggles to change the subject.

I hope it's not like "The Others", though, since they were departed but I already saw that one.  Twice, even.  I mean, you buy the thing you've got to watch it at least twice...
I hate being around people, particularly loud ones on a sticky floor

You know a movie I'm going to have to force myself to see again that I stupidly bought?  "Sideways."  I mean, I like wine almost as much as Buff but that thing just didn't go where I thought it would and I really really do not like that Asian woman who's from Grey's Anatomy.  Really really do not. 
"I hate her, that woman" exclaimed the jester to no one in particular

Ace; not like I'm going to spit any out, though

And no one in particular exclaimed in retort "Why do you really REALLY not like that Asian woman who's from Grey's Anatomy?  Really really, why do you not?"

And if you didn't watch it, you wouldn't see her.

Like I need a reason...
the jester struggles with how to put his aversion to this actress delicately...
Mostly it's her expression; stuck on wide-eyed stupidity.  And getting constantly emotionally distraught, in pretty much every scene. I can appreciate true emotion but I have a distinct aversion to "weepy" people.  Usually women.  She just bugs me. And the show seems emotionally distraught/weepy/sensationalized/surreal hospital fake drama. Like how ER has gotten, where they seem to need an ER shooting/explosion/gang attack/Chicago disaster every week.  As opposed to a realistic plot-twister like "24", where time stand stills and it's only halfway through Jack's day and he's already tortured 57 people and been captured/tortured/escaped 3 or 4 times and it's still only half a day since he walked off that plane from China with scars and a full beard and he's made about 1100 cell phone calls.  I have never seen a show where the majority of dialogue is by phone, like this one... Oh, and the extra nukes are still out there and soon to be set off by some mysterious Mideast terrorist group or Kurzhakastan or Upper Mongolia or the president's own advisors or who knows who cares anymore...
the jester's mind wanders, trying to justify his dislike of that Asian actress who bugs him as he wishes she'd be blown up on Grey's Anatomy and end both her career and the show's run

Hannibal would like it if Rachel Ray made liver, I'd suppose.  Even her own.  I saw Thelma and Louise, so I guess some hot chick swindle movie would be ok. 
the jester hates liver, but thinks Rachel Ray is one hot dish

Ace; her anatomy is ok, if she'd put a bag over her head.
Ace's mind wanders, as he imagines himself in that Hannibal Lector mask thing with the mouth bars and a straight jacket.  Others think it would be an improvement if he was dressed like that.

Ok, but you mispelled "Lola"... Shoot, it's not that hard; the Kinks even spelled it out in the song. 

Hey, you know what would've been funny is if Pat didn't like the movie, and then we coulda had a headline like PAT PANS PAN'S LABYRINTH

It would have been.  Well, I think it would've been. 

You know, I LIKED "The Others."  It was sorta like "The 6th Sense" as far as not realizing what was happening.  And worth watching again, just to see how they pulled that off.  Did you catch "Lady in the Bathtub" or "Lady in the Water" or whatever that last M. Night Shymalihalihanigan movie was?  I saw it nominated for "Worst Movie of the Year" and panned horribly.  He sure is uneven when it comes to putting together films..  6th Sense, Crop Circles... great films.  "The Village":  could've punched the screen at the "surprise."  What a waste of time..

Ace; I like Nicole Kidman, too.  Heck, who doesn't.

Was that bad? I'd heard it was.  Probably a Scientology theme, like in that movie about the biker middle aged guys.  You know what'd be funny?  If Nick Cage showed up in that one, in flames...
the jester re-reads his poast the next morning, and besides being confused initially on which movie "that" refers to finally figures out he must mean "Eyes Wide Shut" but struggles to remember writing this poast at all last night...

The weird freaky thing from The Others was the old custom of taking photos of the dead... I mean, it was like an Entertainment Tonight on the Continuing Saga Of Old Dead Anna Nicole.  I mean, you'd think it'd end with burial, but nooooo....   She lives on, even in death.  Makes as much sense from there, too.

I'm sure I'd take an ocean cruise to the Bahamas and first thing I'd want to do is "visit the grave."  You betcha.
Reflecting on the funeral, Ace considers a "Pretty in Pink" theme as pretty ironic, and sick

Ace; next, Ace takes on "The Secret"

I was trying to figure who you were referring to here
the jester bites his tongue, deciding not to pursue the "Jackass 1+2" comment

Ouch.  I hate it when I do that... dangit.
You have to remember, these are people whose JOB is to watch movies.. I mean, in the grand scheme of worthless endeavors that's right up there with time/study efficiency experts whose job is to watch OTHER people work and then critique them.  Someday, that's the job I want.  Actually, I wouldn't mind being a restaurant critic, either.  Anything that involves bribes would be alright, too.

I wonder if someday there will be a "Saw" box set...  I wonder if they have a soundtrack CD out.

Just out of curiosity, what does going to the movies cost in your neck of the woods?  When I left Jersey, a typical evening show was $10.50.  Haven't been down here.

Well, as is typical, Pat has dropped the ball and the dang poast office has gone doormat.  He mentions seeing the manatees and then never does say how they were in Florida.  And since nobody showed up to help me with the pool table I'm still without a pool.  I've got a couple tables, but like the one in the ad the balls roll off the dang things, although the pasta tends to stay put.

And nothing on the food review end, either.  Whiz whips up a nice blender of eggs and sausage and salsa and nobody steps up to the EggsSalsaSausageShake stand to buy a mug.  I guess it's like that old saying, "When life gives you lemonade, go ahead and drink a bunch and then go to the grave of your enemy and

Well, you know. I think I'll like "The 300" even though it looks extreme and cartoonish.  My wife wanted some dumb chickflick Richard Gere ballroom dancing thing with JLo and Susan Sarandon.  I guess I'll watch them, while she watches him.  I had a dance class in 8th grade and that was enough of ballroom for me.  Well, gymnasium.  It was the sort of thing where the guys sat on one side of the gym and the girls on the other, and the guys get up and cross over to pick a girl to dance with...  I guess like a singles bar for 13 year olds, without the bar.  I don't know, maybe if they had a punch bowl of eggs and sausage and salsa it would've gone over ok.  Although not hot salsa, since people were sweating a lot anyway just from nerves.

If Venus is that bright star in the west right now, then I've seen it to.  If not, then I haven't. 

Ace; I won't go to a movie until everyone else promises to stay home.

My wife suggested that we go see that movie with J-Lo and much to my own amazement really I enjoyed it. Funny I really didn't like J-Lo at first, but once she  was in that killer snake movie, she was alright by me.

I did go see the Little Children movie last week and yeah, that's a good one. If you like Kate Winslet, you can get a good look at her in that one, wait that doesn't sound right. They show a lot of her in that one, no wait, lets try that again, she is alright. Quite a good story too, and a really good, scary, twisted ending.

Well, not to introduce Global Warming into a food poast about Pat's taste in movies but Balmy Beautiful Michiana has entered springlike conditions.  Robins, crocuses, cavorting bunnies and still large-pantsed squirrels lumbering about.  It was in the 60's yesterday late afternoon, when I jogged then grilled out for the first time.  We had TBones marinated in Chicago marinade and they did taste a lot like Chicago.

And a nice Pinot Noir, if Buff is watching.

And it seems "solid"... temps to remain from 50's to 70's.  I await golf courses to open and nets to be hoisted on tennis courts and other signs of spring. Actually will be warm enough for cold margaritas soon.

Well, thanks Pat. I was going to go see The Last King of Scotland, but then you had to come along and completely ruin the movie by telling me the plot. You further ruined it by telling me the actor's name. Then this whole thread was ruined when I realized Ace was poasting to it.

Of course, one could argue that at least Ace was poasting, as opposed to me who hasn't been. Poasting.

Anyway, I don't know why Pat's wife had to convince him to go see a movie with Jaylo. I'd be happy to do anything with her. (Jaylo, not Pat's wife. Not that Pat's wife isn't nice or anything. Heck, how would I know? That's for Pat to decide.) I also think that Pat's wife is either way too trusting.  Or maybe they just have some sort of open relationship.

Scuzzy; maybe this is her way of controlling whom Pat has an affair with

First off, I thought Bill was the last king of Scotland.  Seconhand, it should be "she with whom Pat has an affair."

Geez, Pat is seeing more action than the Desktop area.  And not to ruin anything, but Forest Whitaker doesn't last all that long in "The Crying Game" either and that guy from Stargate where he was the Egyptian is still a guy, although it sure is tricky to tell until it's almost too late. 

I've also got the Ghost Dog get Away from The Samurai movie with Forest Whitaker.  It's pretty cool, too.
Real Chicago pizzas are to die for; the last one I had was from the Rathskellar in Mishawaka.  And the one before that was in Indy.  You know what I miss, speaking of pizza?  The Sicilian pan pizzas, from Noble Romans and Pizza Keg.  And Godfather's pizza; they were like nothing else.

Ace; when's dinner...

Yep, I'm watching.  I just have to wait until things come into focus......

Anyway, Pinot Noir is good.  Pinot Grigio also - the other half's favourite tipple.

Nice thread guys - all about food, movies and weather.  What else is there?

I don't know if anyone should be discussing their other half's tipples in a family forum.  Or even their own, as far as that goes.

I think "riveted" is a good choice of words for when you've over imbibed (that's when you spill some on your bib) because it does feel like you would if you had rivets implanted.  I'm surprised no one has tried that for piercings.

The problem I have with wine and movies is dozing off before the end.  Not the bottle, the movie.  Actually, I usually come to just before the end and I peer out with one eye and think "huh. I wonder how they got there.  And who that is."

I'm not saying I can't handle wine.  I usually do that ok, and don't spill it all that often.  And I'm good with a corkscrew.  Even those single ones that restaurants use for some dumb reason instead of the wing type.  You can sniff the cork if you want, but usually it will smell like cork unless it's one of those funky plastic type ones that the cheapos have gone to.  If it's a screw cap I wouldn't bother to sniff.  I wouldn't bother to buy it.

Ace; and I sure wouldn't sniff the box if you bought it that way.
