    EVERY light on Akbahrs dash was lit

    We got pulled over for failing to signal and the cop let him go....then there was steam from the engine.

    I made it home but WTF

    Most gamblers devolve into Travis like characters given a long enough time line.

    Seriously it's tough to call the FAVORITE movie of all time. I loved movies like One Flew over the Cukoo's Nest and Shawshank Redemption.

    Martin's a top three GOAT at what he does.

    I was watching "The Accountant" last night with the great J,K. Simmons, that wasn't Scorsese but Gavin O'Connor, but O'Connor was influenced by Scorsese.

    Anyone who says Taxi Driver is overrated is a little piece of chicken. I rewatched this one recently and can say the one thing that strikes me about it is there is not a single wasted line or scene. It has a real gritty feel to it, and the Bernard Herrmann score contributes to that quite a bit. It reminds me, in some odd way, of Halloween. Take out the score and it's probably an average movie. But with the tension and build up, and the way it was shot, to better deliver the impact in key sequences, it absolutely delivers. Keitel's scenes are priceless.
