Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson

Dark Knight. It would have been great at 2 hours. But by then (plus the half hour of commercials and previews) I started wondering if it would ever end. Very few directors could make a movie that long, like David Lean, Stanley Kubrick or Ridley Scott. And never, ever should a movie based on a comic book character exceed 2 hours.

On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will wish that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.
Great title, in a "Snakes on a Plane" kind of way.
However... oh Sweet Teenage Jesus, this is the slowest movie I've seen in AGES. I don't like all the quick cuts in today's movies, but paint moves towards its dry conclusion faster than this movie.
The odd thing is that the movie clocks in slightly longer than 2 1/2 hours. The original cut was 4 hours. I can NOT comprehend watching something with this pacing for 4 hours.
Sweet, merciful bearded Jesus.
In my opinion, she's now officially scary looking. Like a full sized shrunken head. Which is a weird potentially impossible image, but there you go.
Thanks to all the snow, I was forced into watching the Sex and the City movie today...
2 1/2 hours I can't get back...
