Here are some "sad" movies. And I'll explain why.

--------------------------------------------------------------




"Bosom Buddies" - ok, so it was a TV show. But here we have two people PRETENDING to be someone they're not. That's really sad, isn't it?




"The Bourne Identity." - This guy - Jason Bourne - doesn't know who he is! And he sets out to find out who he really is. Because no one wants to ACT LIKE SOMEONE THEY'RE NOT. Because if they did... that would be sad, right?




"Liar Liar" - The main character has an OBSESSION WITH LYING. He can't help himself, and even though everyone around him knows he is lying - he continues to do it. That's undeniably sad.




"Mrs Doubtfire" - Get this, a grown man, PRETENDS TO ACT A DIFFERENT AGE THAN HE REALLY IS, and he dresses like a woman!! That's definitely sad.




True Lies" - Harry, the main character, is a FRAUD. He works for the CIA, but pretends to be a boring office worker. His own wife didn't know how big of a fraud he was. Totally sad.





"US Marshals" - If you've seen the movie, you'll remember that one of the main characters - played by Robert Downey Jr - was PRETENDING TO BE A GOOD GUY, WHEN REALLY HE WAS A TWISTED PSYCHOPATHIC KILLER! Yeah, at the end of the movie, Tommy Lee Jones had to bust a cap in his ass. Without a doubt... sad.




"Hannibal" - This was a movie based around a guy who was COMPLETELY UNHINGED. He scared the sh*t out of everyone. And all the people just wished he'd go away and leave them alone. So, a person who is unhinged and refuses to leave.... that is an unquestionably sad thing.




"Loser" - HA! This movie is titled and focused around a man who is a LOSER! Now THAT is sad.

-------------------------

Alright, so lets review the themes I find to be "sad"....

- Pretending to be someone else
- Acting like someone you're not
- Obsession with lying
- Pretending to act a different age than you really are
- Being a FRAUD
- Pretending to be a good guy, when you're really a psychopathic killer
- Being completely unhinged
- And being a loser.


Hmmmmm.... Wow, Shinkai, doesn't this sounds eerily familiar!?!?

UH:

now i'm just wondering, what kind of internet connexion do they have in Iraq?

the U.S. kind?

while you were doing your "oh i am a CSI detective oh look at me i am so smart i make smart conclusions" work on yours truly, you left some trails behind. no Iraqi ISP visiting my blog over the week. intriguing.

maybe you are in Iraq using an american ISP right now, but that's kind of funny. even if its an American ISP located in Iraq, the webtracker would have surely indicated that you're in Iraq. or MAYBE, you are in america right now, claiming that you are in Iraq and going aroung exposing other people.

for what reason? hmm, now let me think, maybe it serves as a good distraction to your own skeleton in the closet. Iraqi helicopter pilot with so much time to spare on the internet, now i wonder why isn't anyone suspicious of that.

but of course! before anyone gets any suspicious, you expose someone else first, making it seem as if it is REALLY impossible for you to be a fraud! (since, well, you are a top notch fraud buster) truly smart indeed! well done, mate!

if a.net is THE ONLY PLACE where you can make yourself look like a hero and attain self satisfaction, then you have all my support! you know i like to help people make them feel good about themselves and all that, distributing sweets to children and stuff.

i can be the bad guy while you can be the police! you can be the Kim Jung Il of a.net! the MASTER who everyone is afraid of. on A.net only that is.

but is this how you look like behind the computer? i'm just a teeeny weeeny curious.



i really understand why you have to lie about being an Iraqi helicopter pilot. we both in the same boat!

cheers!

PS: i'm going to lie that i'm a North Korean nuclear launcher pilot in my next account, or maybe a Somali soldier.. or an Iranian nuclear scientist with the intention of bringing Education and distributing sweets and giving up my pay to all the poverty striken of the world! i hope you support me then! Catch Me If You Can!

What needs to happen is the Moderators need to delete your sorry ass, but failing that, you can count on a few us of browbeating you at every opportunity.

I can assure you, UH60 is as he describes. Unlike your sorry ass . . . a proven liar and fraud.


It's a good bet you're a former user just back playing a silly assed game. What is interesting to note is that you don't piss anyone off, but you do provide a degree of entertainment. Very few here can provide so much fodder for the kicking.

You'll be gone soon enough, in the mean time, it'll be fun watching you self-destruct with another a-netters boot up your ass in the process.

We've discussed this before.  Yeah sure

Now I'll excuse you because the current search engine is total crap compared to the old one. (But you knew that, you've been around anet for quite some time...) But yes, we've discussed the internet situation before - I'm not sure exactly how it works, but it goes through proxies. And as far as we can tell, not always the same one. Sometimes I am in the US. Sometimes I am in Germany. And sometimes I am in South Korea. Probably because those are three major DoD internet/SipperNET hubs. *shrugs*

BUT - in March we are meeting Las Vegas for an "A.Net Meet" I will be there with my wife. PLEASE join us! I would like to buy you a beer... because I suspect you're truthfully old enough to drink one.

I have this film, but I haven't seen it properly yet...

I can't remember actually crying from watching a movie, but I had a pretty big lump in my throat during "Requiem for a dream", especially towards the end.

Still the best film I've ever seen, in my book.

I actually am more than a little creeped out by the odd behavior of Shinkai. Not creeped out in the "scary freak" way, but rather in the "using mirrors to spy in changing rooms" sort of way. Normal people simply do not act like him, and it's much too late to take back the actions. I'll always have that odd feeling of....not even sure what to call it....toward him.

The message you were about to post is too short and probably not of any higher value to the topic at hand. You should think long and hard before posting a message in this forum and make it detailed and a valuable addition to the topic discussed.

Avoid posting "Me Too" messages. These are messages that are posted by people who agree to a point being discussed and post a one liner, "me too!", "Good post Jim!", "I disagree" or similar message. This takes up time as readers must sort through these messages which have no real value to the group at large. Any message containing nothing more than a line or two of text is probably not worth posting.

If you have an opinion on a topic, you should in detail express why you have the opinion and what made you come to that conclusion.

Your post should be relevant to the topic discussed.
