I should watch Signs I think
Unbreakable was originally supposed to be the beginning of the trilogy, with that one as the origin story and the next two just being the epic, badass battle between good and evil. Because it wasn't another Sixth Sense, people hated it. I think it's a better crafted film than that one, but it's not as re-watchable for the reason you said - It's not a self-contained story.

People who say Sam Jackson can't act need to watch that movie - he's the balls.

oh no, i understand. i feel the same way about firefox and linux...you mention you don't like something about your computer and people are like "derrrr install linux problem solved" like that'll fix a slow computer. and yeah, a lot of mac fanatics are like that as well. "hi guys, my copy of ms office 2007 is kinda slo-" "omg buy a mac it'll solve all your problems! they only start at $3k not too expensive rite!"

Such a reject.....

Oh, and the internet was unknown to most of us.....

Sixth Sense has sort of a special place in my heart pretty much because it tuned me into Bruce Willis, and no matter what anyone says I really love watching him.

Unbreakable, I guess, I just really wanted it to be more, like you said. It makes more sense that it was SUPPOSED to be more, and it's a shame that it wasn't allowed to be the trilogy it should have been, and yet crapfests like Open Water are allowed to have sequels.

Sam Jackson and acting, I've never really noticed the two not getting alone well, but I will say that Unbreakable probably was his most memorable performance for me.

Exactly. I'm getting a MacBook Pro only to use Final Cut on there for school and college. If there was a cheaper alternative, I'd go for it.

Truth is, I love working on Macs more than Windows. Customer service is always better and it's a much easier interface. Plus, you can run XP or something on a Mac, not the other way around. I'd only love Leopard more if it could make me iced tea or something while I sit.

I've heard the same shit about Linux, but have no clue what it is. Is it a different operating system or something?

the first computer my mom ever used was the kind that took those little cards, this was back in the 70s

dos wasn't that bad. one of the first computers i got (a 486 i think?), i remember most of the games had to be run on dos. it had the big old school floppy discs too

my typing class in high school (wtf, this was a requirement for everyone too) was done on computers, which kind of surprised me

It's a freeware operating system that's supposed to be the shiz, but if it's so great, I don't understand why it doesn't have the mega appeal that Firefox has. You see offices switch to Firefox. You never see them move to Linux, unless of course they are super cheap bastards. THe only good I've ever seen come from Liinux, i sthe ability to instal it on an iPod and play game boy games on it.

I feel at this time I should let it be known that I am drinking, just to explain spelling erorrs :P

Bruce Willis is one of my favorite actors, too. Never fails to entertain me.

Well, people fault Sammy J for only playing himself or playing off his screen persona. That's bullshit. Groucho Marx did it, Woody Allen did it, John Wayne did it. Sure, he's not at the same level of those guys, but he's done enough diverse material to not get that kind of shit, you know?

Whoa, that's really cool!

The Gameboy on the iPod, not the drinking.
