Are there good experiences with Taco Bell?

I've had a few at 2 A.M. after a long night at the bar

Apparently you lack a Waffle House in your vicinity.

I absolutely love Lemmon but I haven't seen much with Curtis. I don't find men dressed in women's clothes particularly funny. *shrug* I have seen this movie and its ok. Monroe is cute.

I have no good memories of waffle house. When I wasn't living somewhere that had legitimate restos open late, that usually meant I lived close to a Wawa.

I'm the first person to sing the praises of Wawa and I dearly wish the chain would expand further southward.  However, you can't sit in a Wawa and eat and decompress and have a waitress bring you hot coffee. 

I have fond memories of 2 AM waffles or hashbrowns in WaffleHouse while dressed in fetish wear and only getting moderately strange looks.  Can't make that work at a Denny's.

The Yes Men Fix the World - Sorry skjerva. I can totally see what these guys are trying to do, and I guess for some nice socialist bonding it works, but for the most part the whole film just felt like an elongated of Penn and Teller without as much charm. I suppose it's nice enough for a documentary, and it serves its purpose of taking on the free market, which raises some genuine concerns, but for the most part the subject material is completely passable and mostly forgettable. The film has a few high moments, and the in between scenes are fun to look at, but it gets formulaic and dull at times despite being rather riveting in other scenarios.

The Great Buck Howard - Here is another film that I have very little to actually discuss. The story here is pretty damn captivating and mighty great when it actually focuses on the John Malcovich, who gives one Hell of a performance, and does not concern itself with the silly romance between Colin Hanks and that other lady the film is pretty great. Nothing revolutionary or anything, but a nice bit of escapist enjoyability with a few heavy themes. Sadly, the Hanks discovering himself and the Buck Howard resurrection stuff is handled far too predictably and the visual stamp on the film is nothing to gawk at, making for an ultimately lack luster film. Sure you can do considerably worse, and there is a good deal of enjoyment to be had, plus the actual material here is pretty great as is the supporting cast, but ultimately the film falls flat.

Only in a Waffle House can you hear a drunk dude with a Kentucky accent serenade the waitress with "You Sexy Thing" by Hot Chocolate. That was my last Waffle House experience.

As much as I'm enjoying this conversation, can you all find another thread?

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Inglourious Basterds 7.5/10

There's some really good stuff here.  I enjoyed Christoph Waltz quite a bit.  Melanie Laurent was much more interesting than Diane Kruger.  Seriously, if the whole film had just been her story, I would've been a happy camper.  There were a few shots in Chapter 5 that are some of my favorite QT moments ever.  Despite these things, I left the theater feeling completely lukewarm about this film.  Just about the entire bar scene in Chapter 4 bored me to tears.  The climax of the scene was uninspired and felt more than a bit lazy.  There were a few moments in the editing that were too jarring.  There were a few little things that really bugged me, most notably the text pointing out certain Nazi officials and the two interjections by Sam Jackson.

I really wish it provoked a stronger reaction from me.

Interesting that it didn't get a stronger reaction from you.
