Agreed but what about Prior? He deserves a lot of blame too, had the knife on their throat and then imploded. Why was he *****ing so much for fan interference? Baker too, he deserves a lot of blame, Zambrano should have been warming up to be first out of the pen if we needed him.

There are so many people to blame, and yes, you're god damned right Bartman is one of them, but his share is only about 20%. I'm just not one of those people to shed tears for baby ****-up and tell him everything is all right. He is part responsible and people definitely took it way too far and he was wronged for having to go through that. I sympathize with that aspect, no doubt, but that doesn't change the fact he was a part of this too.

It breaks down something like this for me:

40% AGone
20% Bartman
20% Baker
20% Prior

How about Kerry Wood for not being able to get anyone out in game 7?

You have to put yourself back in that moment. Every Cubs fan I know had little if any hope of winning that game 7. We watched, sure, but honest to God, nobody thought that game meant anything. Why? The curse. Now, I don't believe in it whatsoever. But when it comes to the Cubs, it is as real as can be. It's a mentality that something bad is going to happen and it's in the players minds when they are on the field and it leads to these implosions. That's all it needs to be real. Particularly, the 2003-2004 Cubs were the most dysfunctional sports team I have ever followed, AINEC. Ramirez and Alou booked flights to the Dominican following game 6.

So to answer your question, yeah, the Cubs had a shot to make up for it in Game 7, but Kerry Wood didn't have good stuff that night. It was obvious from the start, he battled as best he could and the home run epitomized the effort he was putting into that game. In the end, he had a bad game, and simply said "I sucked" when he met the press. He was the MVP of the division series against Atlanta. I'm disappointed in him for the loss in game 7 but I'm also the realistic. Their chance to win that series was game 6 and the guys on the field didn't get it done due to a string of bizarre circumstances that they allowed to affect them. You throw moneyball out the window with the Cubs, they just can't get the curse out of their heads and it makes them nervous out there.

It's just bass, percussion and keyboards. I really am going to have this thing done by the end of the winter, re-writes and all, then I'm going to get it registered and copyrighted with the assistance of an entertainment lawyer. I really want to get that part right. I know lawyers are expensive. If I can save about $1500 until then, I hope it is enough to get that part of it down and then learn more about where to go from there. I'm not ****ing around with that aspect. I think I may try to secure the budget myself once the thing is iron clad. At that point I will send you the script in full. I'll be sending it out to people all over the world trying to get people in the industry with money behind me so I can produce it myself. Obviously, I am going to need a tremendous amount of help and support and I don't expect that part to be easy but that's one of those things where you just keep banging on the door.

My favorite directors right now are probably David Fincher and Chris Nolan.

I like Fincher a lot too. The Game is one of my favorite movies. Nolan, I've only seen Memento (which I like a lot), The Prestige (pretty good) and Insomnia (decent). I'll take the recommendation and check out his other films. I know I'm like the only person on Earth that hasn't seen the Batman movies. I'm not really into the whole comic book thing and disliked the Batman movies quite a bit growing up. But obviously I've heard great things about them.

Yeah, the only one I am remotely interested in seeing is Dark Knight because of the eerieness around it being Ledger's last move and (supposedly) his best performance.

His performance was good but the movie was just ok IMO. I'm a pretty harsh critic on movies and prefer to see something that has not been done before. Most of the blockbuster stuff Hollywood releases is garbage IMO.

I did like Memento and Insomnia.

Agreed 1000%. Unfortunatley, due to a lack of creativity in the world right now, we're stuck with mostly garbage. Talk about a ****ing drought of epic proportions.....movies, music, books, etc., it's just nothing like it once was, very little originality; and the fact that people are eating up Hangover 2, 3, etc, remakes of movies like ****ing Total Recall........man, what a joke.

Oh my God, I didn't even know about that one. I think creative people in general need to take a little advice from Tony Montana, "It's one great big ***** just waiting to get ****ed"

So as a kid Robocop was a movie I enjoyed (Still do)

Of course Hollywood decided it needed remake

And this is the horrendous result



Looks like a cheap imitation Batman ,, Not Robocop

Jesus, what a joke. Why the remakes? Also, please put in the movie thread. They should call him RubberCop. Looks like the material they make trash cans out of.

On the remakes, is it because:

Lack of creativity these days....we see it across the board in entertainment, music, television

The audience demands remakes (simple minded, willing to spend money on the cheap thrill)

Money...obviously this plays into the previous one, production companies wouldn't be forcing the remakes on us if they weren't profitable

Combination, if so, how much of each?

Yea, loved The Game. Memento was also very good. For directors, my favorite is David Lynch.

A few others to throw out there for entertainment value. Not my favorite movies, but some good ones I enjoy...

The new Sherlock Holmes movies are fun to watch from start to finish. I've been watching the british TV series "Sherlock" on Netflix too, which is awesome.

Big Lebowski--must see

Murder at 1600--on TV *all* the time, and I can never change the channel when I see it on. I don't know why, but this movie is so good.

The Rock--there are very few Nicolas Cage movies that I can stomach, but this is a good one

nicholas cage is horrible. the worst thing that could have happened was his bankruptcy because now instead of being in 1 **** movie every year or two, he's in 2-3 **** movies a year whoring himself out for money.

Some of you don't seem to remember when Cage was making some great movies (Vampire's Kiss, Moonstruck). Many of his movies are awesome because of how terrible they are. Plus he's had some good films here and there even after he started making the mindless, crappy stuff: Adaptation, The Weather Man.

I said what I said as a joke, and I may, admittedly, be a bit of a bleeding heart who hates to see people get crapped on. However, his career hasn't been the absolute ****-hole that people make it out to be. And he certainly isn't some talent-less hack.

I realize he doesn't need to be defended here. People just deserve better treatment.
