Good God, now I feel silly. Guess I will go have a green beer.

While the text "Your movie follows shortly" endlessly wiping red, then back to white was somewhat compelling, I feel that last year's "Loading" message that never disappears had more of a common man appeal.

You should feel silly for the tired France/surrender bollocks rather than the double of a nice little film, MapGuy.

"Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys"

I cannot describe how much I loathe that expression. It's use in the context of the current international political climate is traced back to John Goldberg of the National Review. I hope he appreciates the irony that when we ultimately leave Iraq it will basically be a retreat and a surrender to the insurgents.

Seriously, why would you start a post about a cool little film with loaded politcal language like that?

This was a horrible FPP, but that movie was beautiful.

Wow. The film. Good.

For what it's worth, Pastabagel, it always makes me think of Groundskeeper Willie and his horrible accent.
