I will try to hold back my thoughts on the movie until the actual episode but I think a lot of it had to do with just how I thought it would be a dumb Nicholas Sparks type movie and then I got... whatever The Lakehouse thinks it is. Then I went and watched the original Korean film which is sooooooooooo much better. It made me hate this movie even more. I wish I had saved watching it until closer to have full peak rage to spew at it, but I'm sure I'll rewatch it and those feelings will come back.

The only other movie I can think that made me remotely this angry is maybe Frogs. I admit there were parts of Across the Universe that I enjoyed.

Enya had a song in Sleepwalkers and now she lives surrounded by cats. Coincidence?

I was just thinking about it, and maybe...we should all just step back and just let Cam Bert have this one. I would love it if every single C&O for The Lake House was just Cam Bert screaming to the heavens. He's earned it. He's lived with it for a month or so. Let's let him purge.

We can all just step back and cheer him on like he's goddamn Rudy or something.

I've lived with this for 11 years so my apologies for Cam Bert but no I will not step aside lol

No need to apologize. As I said in the MM thread a few weeks back, by our powers combined we will destroy the Lake House and make everyone involved with it cry and feel great shame!!

Could I get in on that action as well???

Spoiler


(And I know everybody that posts here and have posted since they anounced they were going to do it and also posted in the recomendations subforum (Shannon COME BACK!) are basically also in the action as well. But I feel I can't speak for them because I have this serious bone to pick with this movie and some may want to watch it before they get to Shannon-taylorannephoto-CamBert-Ⓜⓐⓧⓘⓜⓘⓛⓘⓐⓝⓞ levels of rage against this movie)

P.S.: I'm planning to re-watch Lake House and then the original Korean version before the episode airs next friday

So, until it was brought up in this thread, I didn't know it was based on a Korean movie. So I am also going to try to get in a viewing of both versions. I love comparing that kind of shit, so I'm even more excited about this movie now!

I was watching Fast Five, Furious 6 and FF7 ( And after that I plan to also watch The Italian Job (2003) ) to prepare for next week's Fate of the Furious premiere... But I stopped before finishing part 7 and re-watched "The Lake House" and then (for the first time) the original korean version "Il Mare"

The original korean movie is so much better by itself, and even more in comparison with the 2006 remake. The crazy thing is that the changes they made for the Sandy/Keanu remake were minor but they change the tone, pacing, and quality of the movie overall.

Good news is the complete Korean movie is on YouTube subtitled and uploaded by the user Sherwin Busano on august 14 2013, the second to last video uploaded by him after "Customs 8 Presentation 2014" ( I want to post the direct link, but I do not wish to get in any kind of trouble with Dan Engler ;) )

Got my notes ready and a new set of trivia and CRAZY stuff I found online for next fridays episode

CAN'T WAIT!

I have yet to watch the Lake House but my unmitigated love for all things Keanu is well documented. Will I be able to handle hating a Keanu movie? Cognitive Dissonance: COMMENCE!

Here's the thing about Keanu, he's in some movies I hate but I never really hate him. He always tries whether the movie is misguided or not.

Enya's breakthrough in the states was "Orinoco Flow (Sail Away)" off of Watermark in 1988, which cracked the top 40 in the US in 1989. Exile, off that same album, was featured in an incredible scene in LA Story in 1991. Sleepwalkers came out in 1992.


Yes, this incorrect comment bothered me inexplicably. Enya was around in the 80s! No way a 90s movie was her big breakthrough!



As a bonus, I recommend everyone listen to the above along with this GIF of Zach Braff getting punched:

Whyyyy is this movie not available to rent?!?! I finally have the time to watch an HDTGM movie but I'm not sure I can spend $10 on this shit in part because of how much I HATE this premise. The plot made me incredibly anxious just thinking about it when it came out. Not sure what I found so bad about it because I can get down with sci fi/fantasy and even time travel but I just HATED thinking about it for some reason. Maybe now that I'm not just generally wracked with (untreated) anxiety it won't bother me so much (here's hoping...).

AND as an (almost) neuroscientist I will say that I have also heard the theory the EHL caller gave about foot fetishes - namely that the genitals and the feet are right next to each other on the cortical homunculus, and this might lead to some relatively easy cross-wiring or common mix ups of some kind. I also cannot comment on the validity of this theory, but I will say that if you want nightmares you should google "cortical homunculus"

I've come to the conclusion that I'm not going to watch this damn movie because I'm not paying 10 bucks to buy it on Amazon and I can't stand the versions that are on Youtube since they are basically a 6x7 square on my screen, plus I'm distracted by the various public freakout videos that are filling my recommended feed.

Also I haven't really listened to the minis in a while and I'm kinda excited I was named the winning commentator for the episode, which to my knowledge is a first. Also Paul, you need to be real specific when stabbing the lobster, from what I remember it needs to be quick, deep and right between the eyes for the lobster to not feel pain and die instantly.

So, I don't know how many of you have a good city library system available, but let me recommend it.

It's free, and if you have a multi-branch system, they can usually hold copies of material at your nearest library. One other thing: it's one hundred percent completely legal. Moreover, bad movies are exactly the kind of ones that libraries usually stock a lot of, since those are the kind of "mistake purchases" that people can't wait to get rid of.

For example, my library has 41 (!) copies of the Lake House.
