Official Dune movie poster:

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

We have wormsign!
That was a spoiler???  It's not like now I don't want to see the movie.  All it told me was that a guy whose name I can't remember is in a movie about a dune.  I assume it's a sand dune or a Beetles tune:  "Hey, Dune..., la, la, la,...lah."

Bored again, watched the old Murphy Akyrod comedy "Trading Places" some laughs but I forgot Jamie Lee Curtis gives a couple full frontal booby shots, damn she was hot..which led me to another fav comedy, "True Lies" where Jamie is smokin as well....anyway, not big stars but a rise in the covers....

A I completely forgot about that movie. They'd canceled the sequel after 9/11 because it had a similar scenario, right? Not sure.

Now do you people remember a movie called 'If Tomorrow Comes'? A thief, a woman. Steals precious things, she was done wrong and gets revenge?

And also does anyone remember a movie where the husband pushes his wife to a river with crocs in a far away vacation to kill and believes her dead but she survives, gets well and comes back for revenge but she looks different because she gets plastic surgery...

Some of those movies in the revenge genre can be good.  Some not so. One of my favs is Law Abiding Citizen.  It's a blood fest because it's revenge on a system and everyone in it.  So there's a lot of guys (and women) to be taken down.

Those are different than the ones I have been looking for. I am trying to dig out old movies -with no big picture, system messages- I have seen as a little kid. Long story short, it is something based on the 'the toys and movies that made us' idea but in a bigger context. You know how people often talk about this stuff? The movies we have seen as little kids, certain scenes, lines...etc? People do remember and talk about them but almost always because something new and similar points it out or it is already a traumatic, cult thing everybody remembers because it is celebrated anyway. What about the things we don't remember at first thought? Simple ones? Simple and harmless looking ones. Movies, music clips and songs and things we don't even remember now?

The bigger context is the backwards evolution of culture here. Now in the US, if we divide the population in to two opposite cultures, you people are much more similar to each other in basic life. Eating, drinking, dress codes...popular culture...etc. There are differences of course but much similar. It's not like that here. The two sides here...well, we are extremely different in any sense. And this has started long time ago of course, mainly with our generation in terms of popular culture because our childhood is the era when these pop cultural products entered the culture here. The country got opened and the technology arrived from the west when we were growing up. So we were the 'millenials' of our time in a sense.

Anyway, you get the idea...it is really a long story, probably boring to outsiders.

No, tell us your story.  My daughters first "going out" movie was Aladdin.  But she had seen Hundred & One Dalmations at home first, 101 times ;-)

The Headless Horseman! (Which I have learned the name later of course.) Then the Sword in the Stone and Dumbo... But then everything was broken by E.T. which was the first movie I saw in a theatre at 6. Mom blames E.T. (joke) for our basic development.

So first you overdosed on Reese's Pieces, then moved on to stronger drugs?

Finally got around to listening to the Hamilton soundtrack, on YouTube with animatics.

I cried.  And I am a fucking idiot for waiting so long to listen to the whole thing.

We watched the Ben-Hur remake.

Been a long while since I've seen the original.
Good flick. Worthy remake.
Better jesus-movie than the passion of the christ, that's for certain.
But that's not saying a lot in and by itself.
