I found a big archive of Canadian war posters.
I can get behind this sentiment.
But I don’t know if it’s possible to lick them over there and then come on Canada. I’ll just use my Yankee ingenuity.
Michael Douglas war movie.
I’m getting too old for this shit, Smalls.
Play it again, Smalls.

You’re a wizard, Smalls.
Smalls, you got a panty on your head.
You never backed away from anything in your life! Now fight, Smalls! Fight!
Should you or any member of your team be captured or killed, the Secretary will disavow all knowledge of your actions, Smalls.
Loser Movie Club
I thought I’d go for an impromptu Loser Movie Night on the occasion of FINALLY finding a chat room that will work on computers and iOS devices (iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad). I assume it will work with Android devices, too.
It will start at 7:00 Eastern so people can go to bed at a reasonable hour.
The chat thing is called Talker. To go to the chat room, you can either go to this link and be a guest, or I can email you an invitation (I contend that “invite” is still a verb). You can Askbox me your email address and you’ll get a link to create a login and continue to the chat room.
Yes! He’s a total ending-spoiler!
(He absolutely loved the ending.)
Years ago, I spent some time with two of my cousins who are sisters, then about seven and four years old. Sleeping with the Enemy had just come out, and I read the Boston Globe’s review of it the day before. They had gone to see the movie and the seven-year-old gave a review of it that hit every single point that the Globe did, and she stopped at the same appropriate part of the story so as not to give anything away.
As I internally admired her natural reviewing ability, her sister blurted out, “THE BAD GUY DIES!”
It was hilarious.

Batteries Not Included
On Netflix Instant. From a story by H. G. Wells.
The movie starts with the first Moon landing, but when they find a British flag and a note from 1899, things get very interesting.
The story is engaging. The main characters are straight-up archetypes, fulfilling their respective roles in the plot, including, unfortunately, the female whose only motivation seems to be getting married, and who is also frequently blamed for things that go wrong. As for the other archetypes, there is the brilliant but absent-minded genius, and the charming and deceptive writer.
The special effects are above-average for the time, and although the plot is a little simplistic to our modern psyches, it’s definitely worth a viewing.
