Going back thru phase 2 of the marvel universe movies again. Too lazy to sit here and type out each one on my phone. I rate none below 3.5/4. Enjoying the interconnectivity. I see I lost a lot of the storyline in all the explosions and excitement and stuff in earlier viewings. I like there is an actual storyline to go back to. It's fun. I didnt think i needed to go back to pbase one but maybe i do. I'll see.

It's a Hit and Run espisode of Movies I Watched The Last Thirty Minute Of!

Saturday night, after a loooooong night in The Grove, we got back to the hotel room. We'd left the Ole Miss- Alabama game just after halftime. It was obvious by then that the first 13 seconds of the game (an Ole Miss touchdown!) were an anomaly (Alabama then scored 52 striaght points! And 10 more after we left!) that we could either stay for the rest of the humiliation, or hit The Square for a late steak.

We hit The Square.

We were dead tired after all that fun but guess what was on the tellyvision?

BROKEN ARROW.

Wow, I forgot how great this movie is! THIS is the movie that TBS needs to show 32 times a weekend, instead of "Zoolander" and "The Rock".

"Broken Arrow" is the most awesome non-Arnold movie there is. No, really. It is. To wit:

1. You have John Freaking Travolta playing Crazy John Freaking Travolta. Now, he's played "crazy" in a few movies but usually he over-plays it. Not this time. This time, he is perfectly crazy

2. You have Christian Freaking Slater. This dude was on the precipice of being this generation's Jack Nicholson, which honestly was a curse. Too bad. Slater is pretty cool as a crazy guy, but is AWESOMELY cool as a military officer. "We're military officers ma'am, let us handle this". I'm not even a ma'am but I'd have let him handle any situation he wanted! Slater was absolutely perfect as the All-American Military Guy. He should have just played this role for the rest of his career

3. You have Howie Freaking Long. At his PRIME. Just two years after his retirement from the NFL, Howie Long is in full bada** mode. He was so good in this movie that when he was killed, his scream became known as the "Howie Scream". Do YOU have a scream named after you? Neither do I! Here is the Howie Scream. Turn it way up and be sure to watch until the very end!



4. What else do we have? Oh yeah - more great military dialogue! As in (I can't use "To wit" again, used it above):

BADA** MASTER SERGEANT: Do you even know what an order is?

BADA** CAPTAIN CHRISTIAN SLATER: Yes, I do.

BADA** MASTER SERGEANT: Good...because I'm about to break one.

5. And you have what is probably the greatest death scene in a non-Arnold movie. Words don't do it justice, so just go to 1:23 in the video, watch and try not to scream OH HELL YEAAAAAH! at the end:



Honestly, this is just the movie for a Monday. Watch it immediately and then go conquer your world.

"Broken Arrow" gets 5 Christian Slater Arched Eyebrows out a possible 5 Christian Slater Arched Eyebrows. Howie Scream!

More depressing MoviePass news: The company is considering another reverse stock split, this time at 500-1 or thereabouts.

Look, I've been in this position before. I had a product that we priced too low (it was money!). It was evident that we had to charge a higher rate because the more business we got, the more money we lost.

All my "experts" told me that if we raised our rates, we'd lose all our customers and go out of business. "What do you think will happen if we continue losing money on every single loan we make?" I asked them. LOL, it was like talking to a wall.

I raised our rates. Guess what?

We didn't lose ANY customers.

We became profitable and stayed that way.

I should have fired the idiots in the executive suite, but didn't. I am waaaaaay too nice.

Anyway, MoviePass has to figure out what price they need to charge in order to generate cash flow, and then charge that price. Either they will be successful, or enough customers will flee that they'll have to shut the doors.

But if they continue with their present strategy, they're going to have to shut the doors anyway. Might as well give themselves a chance to succeed.

Maybe I ought to send them a letter telling them that if they don't hire me to fix things, they are idiots.

Their business model is "Pay us $10 a month and we'll let you see $100 a month of movies, and WE PAY THE $100!" (NOTE: Now it's $20/month and 3 movies, but that's still a net loss for MoviePass.)

It's a good deal for those who like going to the movies and I highly suggest people in that group take advantage of it for as long as MoviePass feels like throwing other peoples' money away.

Here is why MoviePass is destined to fail:

They have to pay retail for the movie tickets their subscribers purchase. Their competitors pay wholesale.

That's it. There's no way around that. MoviePass cannot possibly compete with movie chains like AMC that offer their own subscriber service but control the wholesale price of the ticket.

I don't care what else MoviePass does - they are a company with a retail cost of goods sold, trying to compete with companies that have a wholesale cost of goods sold.

They cannot survive that.

I can still go to three matinees and pay around the same amount. lol
