Sure - built into the forum. I quote from the Digital Software Discussions and Reviews forum:

If you are going to post a spoiler and especially if it is a big spoiler, you can use the "spoiler tag" to hide your comments in white. For example:

[ spoiler ] Here are the spoilers. [ / spoiler ]

Your comments would then look like this:





Remember to not have ANY spaces between the "[" "]" symbols or the "/" symbol. Again, inside the brackets "[", there are NO spaces.

After the Sox beat the crap out of the Blue Jays, We watched Tears of the Sun. This is one of those movies That I've owned for a year or so and have never watched. I thought it was decent but my girlfriend was a little disturbed by it. It can be a little depressing.

The theatrical version:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Spoiler  
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The scene with the fortune teller has been deleted, so there is no mention that Ashtons character should not have existed.

When he is in the doctors office and goes back the last time, he jumps back to a birthday party where he first meets Kayley. He tell her he hates her, and something about killing her family if she comes around him again. She runs away crying, so when her parents split up, she doesn't have any reason to stay with her Dad, so she goes off to live with her brother and Mom.

There is then pretty much the same group of clips of the characters "new" lives. It ends with Ashton living in a big city and passing Kayley on a busy sidewalk. She doesn't recognize him, but he does her. She does give him a second glance. So I guess it is somewhat an open ending.

Last night I re-watched the original "Terminator", because I plan on watching T2 and T3, both (believe it or not) which I've not yet seen.

I hadn't seen the original in a while, and I was surprised how much it plays like a horror/slasher film. I also had forgotten Paul Winfield was the police chief. It's kind of dated, but still a good, effective thriller. Looking forward to T2 and T3 tonight and maybe tomorrow night.

I like the Terminator films - to me, they are the kind of film that you know what to expect, and they deliver...

I watched Matrix: Revolutions last night. I must say I was underwhelmed. Visually, I thought the movie was pretty good, but the storyline left me more than a little cold.

Sorry if I upset any die-hard fans of the Matrix trilogy - I thought the first film was most outstanding, but parts 2 and 3 (to me, anyway) got progressively less good.

Thanks Racer21. In that case I'm glad I watched the director's cut. Depends on the mood I guess.

Re-watched Panic Room - Superbit last night. Very dark movie - really demanding for a digital PJ.

I love that one shot where he tracks all over the house without an editing cut. Does anyone know if Fincher has any new projects in the works?

Fincher has a couple of things in the works, including Rendezvous with Rama.

Panic Room was pretty good, but I'm not a fan of Seven and I thought Aliens 3 was just plain awful.

Watched THE ROCK last night, had seen it several years ago but I managed to pick up about 15 DVDs for 25 bucks from a friend who was getting out of the Navy and didn't want to pack them. This happened to be one and I got a chance to watch on the Z2 with surround and I will say it was a nice experience. Of course any movie with Sean, Nick and some explosions will grab my attention.

Wife and I watched "Along Came Polly" and "50 First Dates". Both movies were very entertaining and funny.

Last night I watched "Hellboy" and "Johnny English". Hellboy was better then what I expected, but "Johnny English" turned out to be less entertaining. I visualized a closer Bean character of Rowan Atkinson, then the character he played in "Johnny English". If Rowan Atkinson could develop his secret agent character a little better, then I could see them having a good chance here of a new character such as what Peter Sellers was in the Pink Panther movies as the bumbling Inspector Clouseau, but in Rowan Atkinson's case it would be the bumbling secret agent.

Tonight I watched Mr. Wakefield break out the broom in HD. Just awesome!
Too bad those pesky Rangers refuse to go quietly.

I was also keeping an eye on Yohan Santana violating The Yanks on ESPN-HD

This weekend I'm having a wee party.... showing:

Saturday:
- Last Samurai
- Kill Bill Vol 1
- Kill Bill Vol 2

Sunday
- Princess Bride
- Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (my group of friends loves kevin smith)

Should be good fun i think.

Yeah Gus, I feel you. We keep winning but so does Texas and Anaheim!! We cant get any breathing room. After we went up 6-1 last night, we watched "Love Actually". A couple funny parts but definately a chic flick. I expected as much but I heard it was decent so we gave it a shot. Even my girlfriend thought it was just too cheesy some times. This is another DVD that will sit on the shelf for a long long time!

I took a couple days off to lounge around and spend quality time with my son before school starts.

I'm looking for some movies to watch. The only title I'm eagerly awating now is The Alamo. Is there anything else out there on DVD for me to watch the next few days?

We had some friends over last night and watched "What About Bob?"

A few good laughs and good for a mixed age audience.

Watched Big Fish last night. I enjoyed it but my girlfriend lost interest due to fantasy aspect that Tim Burton uses in his work. I would definitely recommend this one.

Gus, how old is your son? One thing I picked up this week that you may enjoy with him is "ALF: Season 1" This is classic and I still enjoy it very much.

He is Eight, but he thinks he's 18. That makes for a difficult situation when choosing movies. Yesterday I took him to see Alien VS Predator. The wife hit the roof when she found out I took him to a PG-13 movie. He loved it!

Just finished watching the Australian film Spotswood (Efficiency Expert in the US). Someone gave me a nice 35mm print of this. It's about a shoe company that hired a "Efficiency Expert". It's more like a comedy. Stars Anthony Hopkins, Ben Mendelsohn and Russell Crowe.

Yesterday afternoon I watched AOTC in HD again with my seven and four year olds( yes I know I could watch paint dry in HD and get a kick out of it but it is an entertaining film at least and looks oh so pretty in HD).

Last night, I watched the 1932 Grand Hotel. Very interesting but not what I would call a great film. The acting looked a lot like they where confused about how to do things now that films had sound. There were way too many exaggerated facial expressions body and hand gestures that looked awkward.

About half way through ( about 11:30) my 17 year old came up with his girlfriend and four of his buddies who had not seen the theater. I showed them some demo stuff including the DTheater version of Castaway ( the crash scene). There was actually a young movie buff in the group who just had the experience of his life by his demeanor when he came into the room and as he was leaving. I then went back to Grand Hotel.

Last night the wife and I watched "Mystery Alaska".

Pretty good movie, but definitely NOT a family film - very rough language and adult situations.
