Same dude that Rex just appropriately posted in the thread from Hell, from a Hallmark Christmas movie made 6+ years ago
Let me guess, he was really Santa Claus? I think I saw that one, but it could be any of 5 or so movies, I can't place which one. Is it the big city doctor who gets a job in Alaska where Santa has his workshop? Or the big city business woman who inherits her aunt's Christmas village in rural Western New York? Or was he the big city mega toy store chain owner encroaching into the small town with 2 Mom and Pop toy stores?

At some point, my wife will stop find it amusing when I inform her of whom the movie's lead actress is a knockoff ("91% A-List Actress", etc.).

Never been big Bob Seger fan, but always liked the song "Night Moves."

Listened to it this morning and the damned thing choked me up.
I woke last night to the sound of thunder
How far off I sat and wondered
Started hummin' a song from 1982
Ain't it funny how the night moves
When you just don't seem to have as much to lose
Strange how the night moves
With autumn closin' in
Old...
Shouldn’t that read “2006”?
And his one problem is he didn’t go to Russia that night because he had extracurricular activities, and they froze to death.

I was 42 in 2006. Can still feel the memories from my teenage years, especially as conveyed in that song.

My teenage crushes will soon be grandmothers...

Of course! Damn, I should have joked that CCB stared in it, because she actually did. (I looked up the movie, it was my first guess). My wife watched these movies without me for years, but now that she got my daughter into them, they became family events last year. They are truly all the same damned movie with slight modifications, like the main characters' jobs and whether the single father just got a job in Colorado or Seattle where he falls in love with his kids teacher or the mother of the kids nemesis. After 2 or 3 movies, my daughter started to proudly announce the entire plot within the first 2 minutes of every movie. They are truly that transparent and cookie-cutter. At first she was proud to figure it out, then it became a joke, because they are all the friggin same!

I've mentioned it here before, but the podcast "Dave and Jeb aren't mean", featuring David Roth (from the Defector) and Jeb Lund (@mobute on twitter), break down Hallmark movies. I've never watched one of the movies, but its still pretty damn funny. One of the bits they do is to try and describe the plot in 60 seconds or less.

Watching certain Swamper’s kids get older on FB. Makes me realize how long I’ve been here.

A couple days ago, while I was researching a narrow point of law, I ran a Westlaw search and saw that one of the cases that came up was something I had briefed and argued in 2005. I opened the case and not only had I completely forgotten that my case had dealt with the particular issue I was researching, but I had to read the opinion twice to figure out whether I had been on the winning or losing side of the issue.
And his one problem is he didn’t go to Russia that night because he had extracurricular activities, and they froze to death.

I'm going to say it. I fucking hate reading opinions. They are so rarely easy to understand and offer confusing guidance at best. Sure, they're written to deal only/mostly with the issues in that case, but god damn if they aren't a slog. It's always like plowing through Ta-Nehisi Coates, David Foster Wallace, and James Joyce at their most verbose.
I took a two hour nap and cried during parks and Rec. it was awesome and terrifying.

Been watching a bunch of episodes of Taxi recently and Danny DeVito as Louie DePalma was 10 years younger than I am today and he seemed old as shit on that show.

Watched the first MI movie with the kids tonight and Jon Voight,
[+] spoiler
who played an IMF agent who turned against his country because he felt like he was old and, post-Cold War, obsolete,
was 57 when that movie came out. Cruise is currently 58.

Now I feel bad for not including spoiler tags in my movie thread discussion.

Just make sure you include one for the dog if you watch the second movie.

I definitely saw Road Warrior (part 2) first when I was a kid and it made a bigger impression on me. Did the dog die in both?

Plus side to my maybe being wrong here is that I just went on a quick little George Miller YT jaunt and rewatched the end of Babe and goddamn is that still great.

"Road Warrior" and "Babe" are two of my top 20 movies of all time. And the first "Mad Max" and "Fury Road" are also fantastic films.
