Just watched The Machinist (2004). Wow.


Good actor. I enjoyed his character in the fighter. I'd like to see if he has the range to do comedy. I'm looking forward to Le Mis too. Dear lord, woke up with three tombstone pizza, box of cereal, and bag of chips in the fridge. No beer though. Why didn't I get any beer? Cooking a pizza, but no darn beer to go with it!

My review for this was as follows: "I thought Bale was great in The Fighter, but he is just outstanding in The Machinist."
I really rate him after seeing this - makes me wonder if I'll appreciate Batman more on a rewatch? I don't know.

Comedy? He has some "jokey" lines in The Prestige and delivers them fairly well. Not sure about a full-on laugh-a-minute comedy movie though.

I really couldn't stand Les Mis. But I didn't really know the story line before, so it's possible I wouldn't have like the play either and it's not the movie's fault, but I think trying to condense a 1200 or 1400 page book into any standable amount of time, and then add endless and innumerable musical monologues, is impossible to do well. That's the no spoiler version.

Spoiler version
Spoiler:
Girl and boy see each other. They decide they are in love. They have one 2 minute conversation. Girl and Dad need to leave. Girl leaves a note. Boy gets note from other girl who found it as she is on her deathbed. He says he loves her and then goes looking for other girl he really loves. (ANGER, STUPID). He sends a note to Girl. Dad finds note. Did I mention the boy is active in the French Revolution? So Dad finds out Boy loves Girl and decides "I must meet this boy to figure out what he's all about." Goes into battlefront. (SO STUPID! IS THIS REALLY SO IMPORTANT YOU WILL RISK YOUR LIFE TO DETERMINE WHETHER A BOY YOUR DAUGHTER HAS SPOKEN TO ONCE IS A GOOD GUY?!?!?!) Dad hears boy sing about love for Girl. Dad prays, "He loves my daughter, so if no one else survives this, let him live." (Remember, people, one conversation.) Soldiers break into the fort. Dad decides to save Boy and let EVERYONE ELSE DIE!!!!!!! You see, he is special, because he loves his daughter.

I am giving you the movie as it was presented, but imagine that spread out over an hour with several more people lacking in character development taking up space. At least one guy was really hot, although because of the lack of character development, his death was ridiculously overdramaticized.

Microsoft's cheapest goes for $15 American these days, apparently. No clue what they are over there, but I can't see their cheapass model being that expensive. I've never had a problem with them either... I have had problems with their high-end Bluetooth and wireless models, though.

ST's suggestion is good. I've also found Logitech's cheap optical wheel mice to be plain but effective and durable. Looks like about the same price ($15) for the M100.

+1 to ST and PhoenixEnigma. Microsoft's and Logitech's cheapest mice are actually both functional and nigh indestructible under normal use conditions. I keep some around as emergency mice.

I have a Logitech MX300, it's been good enough for me. I guess my point is along the lines of those earlier messages that have said it doesn't have to be a particularly expensive or otherwise special one to be good enough.

Tell me about it. This was the last year or so for me:

  • I got a job. Got a call to an interview literally 40 minutes after I mailed them what was the first job application I had written in my life. (Yes, in this economy). Hired on the spot. And it's well paying white collar work with awesome benefits. I hereby officially scoff at everyone who told me I'd never get a job because I'd never volunteered in my life and didn't have a string of menial jobs on my resume.
  • I've gone from the 1 bedroom hovel I lived in as a student, to a nice apartment (with a large balcony, and a dishwasher).
  • When previously mentioned place of employment went belly up last year, it was immediately acquired by an even more awesome company that started by giving me a 15% raise. And I was swimming in money before that.
  • I've lost something like 30 kg (65 lbs) with little effort and much bacon.

Been really paranoid about all this success. Feel like Gladstone Gander.
