    After some research, I need to watch Battle Royale. Looks awesome! But I extremely highly recommend HG anyway. The concepts are very similar but the culture of their fictional world (Which is absolutely ridiculous and adds a great deal of originality to a concept that might not be so original) will keep things totally fresh for you. Shouldn't be anything like Battle Royale's interpretation of Japan. The Hunger Games themselves play out so unpredictably that watching something similar done in another movie won't take anything away, you'll still be every bit as freshly amazed by the outcomes. Its just one of those movies done scarily proper.

    I have to read the book though because it was more than obvious 2 1/2 hours wasn't half as long as this movie needed.

    The scene isn't at the end is it? I know there's one maybe 30 seconds after the credits start rolling is that the one?

    Going to see it on Saturday, looking forward to it, I've heard great things.

    Ok. Hey, refresh my memory again with that scene. I don't remember as there were so many funny scenes in that movie that it was a cool surprise.

    The scene where Stifler's mom blew Jim's dad in the movies and the popcorn tub was on her head.

    That's where I went with the wife for the 4:45 show. Had to sit in the 2nd row but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be sitting so close.

    We went to the 1:15 showing. Would of been funny if we were at the same show and didn't know until after. It's been so long since I've seen you, not sure if I would recognize you at first. Haha

    Depending on where I was on the fat scale the last time that you saw me, you might not have recognized me. I'm a svelte 185 right now. I would have looked for you since I noticed that you checked in at the theater.

    That helped get the wife in the bedroom at all?

    She's in there quite often. Unfortunately, I'm usually on the couch.

    Maybe next time you, the wife, me and the gf can meet up. We go there often as we can drink and eat while watching the movie.

    Sounds like a plan. I can throw a rock from my apartment to that theater but I still don't normally go to the movies. She hinted at "thanking" me for taking her. That's why I went this time. You live a lot closer now, right?

    "Thankings" are always a nice offer!

    Yes, I live in Monroe now which is about 20 min from Menlo Park Mall.

    American Reunion was pretty funny if you like those movies. Had some great laughs.

    Looper looks really cool. Though, it could just be because I'm a sucker for time travel shit.
    I don't like homer bias.

    American Pie was funny, but not as funny as I was expecting. Lots of slow moments between the laughs.

    Quite the opposite for me. Ever since Judd Apatow hit the scene comedies have taken a different turn. I was expecting a lot less and I got a lot more.

    I'm going to really "nerd" myself up here for a minute:

    I'm a massive Joss Whedon fan, have been basically from the start. I think Buffy and Angel are two of the best shows that have ever aired on TV. They take some time getting started(especially Buffy which doesn't really start to shine until a single episode...the season finale of season 1...and then mid-way through season 2 when it gets good and never slows down again), but as TV shows they were always so well written, so smart, and so innovative that I've always wanted to see what he could do given a real chance at something big.

    Firefly was very good but obviously didn't work out for him, Dollhouse was decent but not spectacular, the movie version of Firefly(Serenity) was a great, great low budget movie, and Cabin in the Woods was exceptional.

    So to finally see him somehow be given the chance to take $200,000,000 and the all-star cast they had setup for him, and make an Avengers movie seemed too good to be true, and to see him hit a massive fucking home run with it, and turn in exactly what I would have expected, a brilliantly written, hilarious, genuinely fun movie with outstanding action sequences(namely the finale) and some real heart thrown in...I couldn't have been happier leaving the theater. So glad everyone gets to see why people who love Joss love Joss, that movie is why.

    Cool to know, Cayuga. Didn't know this director was responsible for all those shows. Firefly is a real cult favorite, sounds like televisions biggest crime that it got scrapped so soon based on what I hear from its fans. Glad this guy finally hit the map.
