Busy day, lots of work. Several admissions.

Home, I ate a bit, put on some streaming videos. I tried The Lawnmower Man, hated it quickly, and dumped it before it was half through. Then, Fargo, which was quite interesting, understated. The characters all seemed so benign, and yet so many horrible things happened! Great flick.

Then I put on a Netflix disc from season five of ST:DS9, and watched one episode, but the disc must have been scratched, because the next episode wouldn't play. Sadly enough. So, back to Netflix, demanding a replacement disc.

And the beat goes on...

IIRC, it was suggested to a friend who was deeply interested in virtual reality when it came out, but I never got the chance to see it in the theaters. Now, I'm glad I didn't...

Fargo is good, it's just slow, imo.

I have always loved the Coen Brothers' work, and Fargo is a classic.

Agreed. I especially liked those scenes on the highways, huge plains of white...

Lawnmower Man when it came out and I saw it back then - I actually liked it. Seeing it these days, knowing more about how technology works, etc - it's a totally ridiculous flick.

Fargo is definitely one of my favorite flicks for all of those reasons mentioned. It's just so dark without being in your face about it all of the time.

Fargo is really interesting. I like how it portrayed the MidWest folks. The Lawnmower Man never engaged me.

I told Larry I wanted to move there so I could pick up the accent.

I've had people all over the U.S. tell me I have an accent like the sheriff in Fargo.
It's sort of insulting, but I sure did like that movie.

Why is it insulting? I find the accents of Minnesota and Wisconsin very comforting.

I would assume that growing up in Racine might have left a mark or two...

Ahhh. Good old Rackinee.
(a trucker once asked directions to Racine and pronounced it that way)

Hmph. Philistine.

Or maybe I should say, "Phyllis Stein"?

I really liked "Fargo". Though people do not mostly talk like that there.

I think that was to intentionally make the bloody events all the more shocking.
