#328 – Hi. I’m Herb. And My Job is Reading Powerpoint Presentations That Someone Else Wrote Six Years Agoon October 22, 2013 at 12:01 am
I’m gonna say it. Training is a scam. It’s not training. It’s sitting around while someone commits murder – Death by Powerpoint!
I know we should look at it like, “Hey, I’m getting paid to screw around on the Internet while they try to get the slide projector to work” but it’s just a waste of everyone’s time.
#10 – War of the Worlds
(either the original or the remake)
Some prefer the original. Others enjoy the remake. We say, you can’t go wrong with either one for a great Halloween movie. This movie of aliens walking all over the planet is absolutely thrilling and will have any kid glued to the screen. I saw the original when I was a kid and I remembering thinking, very clearly, “Oh shit. We’re not getting out of this one.” The less the kid knows going into this movie the better.
And the film actually works on multiple levels. Sure, it’s a good scare and all, but then you get to pull out the edu-tainment and talk about how some crazy guy did the show on the radio and fooled everyone into thinking that the Earth was really being invaded.
Like I said, I wasn’t that crazy about the remake, but I know lots of people who really enjoy the film. And I gotta admit, I love Tom Cruise hiding under the kitchen table, quaking like he was going to crap himself. I never thought I’d say this, but that was some fine acting there.
