I just watched a movie for my marathon that nearly killed me. I can see now, this is going to be a very long and painful marathon. If only I could stay in the more innocent days of Borzage films. Alas, I must move into the uncharted waters of films that try to bore me to the point of madness.

Considering it was one of my picks (and in my top 100), it's going to be a painful marathon for us both.

Please at least do a little research on this one before you go all crazy on it.

Nope. I know enough about Hunagrian history to fill in any potential gaps in knowledge there. Anything else to learn I don't really care about in the context of my upcoming review. There is nothing you could tell me about the making of the film that could make me like it more.

And Marty, sorry I didn't like it, though from what I know about some other films you submitted I will probably have a better time with those.

What if I told you Pixar made it?

Contrary to what you may think about me, that would have absolutely no impact.

Ugh. I am losing my shirt in the market today. GG America!

Oach, I thought last Thursday was bad.  This would out do the worst day I've ever had including the financial crisis.  Oh well, I know I shouldn't look at my computer while on vacation.

London Riots.

Blimey that fire is really whipping up a storm in Croydon, looks like it's going to burn through that entire block of houses.
That all looks and sounds horrible, hope our Brits are okay.
