But the original version of California Dreaming didn't have a music video of California being destroyed by an earthquake. Put an earthquake in a music video and you'll get my attention. :)

 

Below - The real estate guy with hair in the dark suit and red tie looks familiar. :ohmy:

It does have lovely multi-part harmonies and a simplistic, folk/country sound to it that I am a sucker for. It's also much catchier, and that's saying something considering that Sia has made, among others, one of the catchiest tunes of the past decade.

 

 

Fun fact: This song was originally meant for Britney Spears. Thank goodness she never got her hands on it.

There is exactly one good movie that Dwayne Johnson has ever been in, and it's this one.

I liked "Walking Tall" and "The Rundown"...

 

Also, does "The Other Guys" count as a Dwayne Johnson movie? :P

Not really. It's a Will Ferrell and Markie Mark movie.

But technically he WAS in it (albeit briefly). ;)

It was more a cameo than anything.

^..Good choice.

Think positive {ricky's not known for being very positive, or optimistic}. Too bad.

 

Anyway, this was always one of my favourite 'feel good' movies:

I'll be signing up for Amazon TV so I can watch The Expanse and I just discovered I'll be needing to sign up with Hulu too.

l just watched all the extended cuts of the Lord of the Rings trilogy for the first time. I have to say the books were slightly better in terms of story but the movies are amazing!

Payday 2 was my very favorite game before i start playing world of tanks (and i just feel like missing it a bit now as well..)

Anyhow, in 2016 Payday The Movie came out, and a year later in 2017 the Payday 2..

 

that was a wish i had for a few years to see my favorite game turn into a movie.. and HELL YEAH it has happen..

its just so AWESOME to watch in a movie the VERY heists i was playing in the game.. "first world bank", "the mall", "the Hoxton breakout" etc..

i cant describe how excited i was to watch those movies even if i had just stoped playing the game cause started WoT..

 

if you havent play the games you wont understand how i felt watching them, but anyhow it surely does worth watching them anyway..

a fair warning though, in some of the scenes you may need a "strong stomach"

Late to the party and didn't get to see every single one of everyone else's list- so forgive me in advance if I am rehashing anything- these are some of my favorites, it's hard to cut the list down so I picked ones that I felt had the greatest definite impact on my life and perception of things for whatever reason...

 

Cloud Atlas

The Matrix

What Dreams May Come

Artificial Intelligence

Dark City

Inception

Harvey w/ Jimmy Stewart.

It is a calm and expertly written comedy.

Here's something "ominous" for you:

*Divide America - then conquer*. Well played, Russia... well played.
