Regardless of genre, Ultraviolet may be the single worst movie I've ever seen.

Well by "improbable" I meant more along the lines of "the only two attractive people in the Red Army bumping uglies in a crowded room without waking anyone up"

but then snipers are masters of stealth

I guess if you've not seen the Dark Knight then you're probably a deaf-mute recluse with no electricity and all your time is spent checking your pit traps and chopping wood for winter so there's no time left over to watch films.
I saw TDK for the first time a few months ago. Had to wait for the spring thaw so the express rider could get my Netflix through Dead Man's Pass.

Someone more knowledgeable who has seen it more recently than I will probably point out that the guns weren't proper period pieces.
No, they were using Colt SAAs (1873) and the movie was set in the 1890s, it's kosher.

Interesting: "Bustin' caps" (in reference to Glockin' a motherfucker in his dome-piece) originated as slang during the era of muzzleloading percussion pistols.

This one happened frequently when I first started keeping a handgun for HD/carry.

I believe TF alluded to it implying fears of impotence. Which would just be insult to injury since if your bio-dong doesn't work, you'd at least hope your mechano-dong would.

I had a dream the other night where some dude was trying to run over my Dad with a riding lawn mower (). I tried to shoot the dude, but nothing would happen. Each time I racked the slide, another bullet would just mash into the one in the chamber, like they were made out of dough.

The weird thing is I've never even played Alpha Protocol.

Similar concept, though as I recall the DAK pull isn't as light as the LEM. It's very smooth, however.

I didn't think about the quarter thing, but I assumed it was somewhere in the early 80's based on the overall aesthetic.
The Coen bros wrote a great article basically saying they had to change the time period at the last moment because they accidentally cast Josh Brolin instead of James Brolin.

Yeah Sherlock was very enjoyable. Martin Freeman continues to be my favorite do-all British actor imo. The second season "series" isn't on Netflix yet but it is excellent. Also, "Benedict Cumberbatch" may be the most phenomenally English name in history.

Speaking of BBC dramas on Netflix, if you like loose-cannon-whose-life-is-spiralling-down-the-drain Cop shows, Idris Elba is fantastic in Luther.

technically yes but the only similarity between the two is the concept of the zone as a weird place full of mysteries
