No Country for Old Men – Top 30 Best Movies

1 Comment

Saw this movie the other day. Wow! I find hope in the fact that movies can still be made where the storytelling and the acting are enough to make a blockbuster. Maybe the Hollywood movie producers will realize that not every Hollywood movie needs a budget in the $100’s of millions and a special effects team. This movie was old school movie making. I loved it.

Don’t want to spoil the fun for those you are not seen it, but it is already amongst the Top 30 Movies of all time, as rated by viewers, according to the Internet Movie Database (IMDb).

And by the way, how do I get one of these haircuts, Anton help me out here?

I have looked in vain for the original Anton Chigurh, from Tommy Lee Jones’ book, but have not been able to find it. Does anyone have a photo of the inspiration behind this haircut?

Support the Writers Guild of America Strike – 4 Cents Worth

Support the Writers Guild of America Strike

“We Write You Wrong”

That was one of the signs carried by some of the strikers recently. This strike can be summarized this in two words – “4 Cents”.

This is how one writer summarized the situation;

“While that is a big part of the current proposal the real sticking point is the WGA’s demand that their residuals from DVD sales be doubled from four cents to eight cents per DVD unit sold. The AMPTP reacted with vociferous outrage to that demand citing that DVD revenues are the only things left that makes the enormous cost of producing features and high end TV shows worth the risk.

In a sign of union weakness that doubling of the DVD residuals demand was taken off the table the night before the picket lines went up – which caused vociferous outrage from the WGA members. Now it seems that that demand has been thrown back into the soup once again.”
