#3094493 Ultimate Huddle debate: Greatest Kung Fu film?

Posted by captfluoro on 18 November 2014 - 01:02 AM

One that is more of an action movie but had great martial arts fighting was The Raid: Redemption. If you have not seen it and want to watch an insane balls to the wall action movie, check it out. Takes about 15-20 minutes to set up the premise of the movie then about two hours of nonstop insanity.

I am amazed it took four pages for someone to mention the Shaw brothers and Five Deadly Venoms. Also glad some people mentioned Ip Man. Just a good movie period. I also think Hero was a really good movie.

I am also staggered that no one has mentioned The 36th Chamber of Shaolin.

#3011095 Halloween Time! Do any of you guys dress up?

Posted by captfluoro on 12 October 2014 - 08:50 AM

Having kids is an easy excuse to dress up. Our neighbor has a huge party and all the neighborhood kids and most of the parents dress up. There are probably close to a hundred people in all. This year I'm going as Thor and my daughter is going as Supergirl. My son is going as a Splicer from Bioshock video game. Wife and her friends are going as the Golden Girls.

#2960685 Homeowners: Give Me (First-Time Homebuyer) Your Advice

Posted by captfluoro on 17 September 2014 - 02:18 PM

As someone said, don't try to fix everything at once, expect to be in it for the long haul.  You will find that your house will be in a perpetual state of change.  After five years you might want to repaint, after ten you might want to remodel.  Just save up for each project.  My wife and I have been in our house for 14 years (built brand new for us in 2000) and we are currently having the wall between our kitchen and dining room taken down to create more space and light. Next project will be our master bath in a year or so.  Hopefully you'll be lucky and find someone you like (plumber, contractor) for the big projects.  Word of mouth is the best form of advertising when it comes to home repairs.

#2955677 Wes Horton: A "Did You Know?" Thread

Posted by captfluoro on 15 September 2014 - 04:15 PM

We had four girls sitting behind us that apparently were friends, family, or girlfriends of Wes Horton. Every time he got on the field, or came close to making a play they were going bonkers.


You were sitting close to where I was, they were about 10 feet away from me.  A woman a few seats away got their story.  One of the girls was Horton's girlfriend, two were his sisters and the last was a friend.  Apparently the Panthers have a program for wives and girlfriends of players where they help move them out to Charlotte and help them find a job here so they can be with their significant other.  The girlfriend has been here a couple of months thanks to the Panthers and the rest of the girls drove from Los Angeles over four days to make it to the game.

The crack about the "flyin' contraption" was the stupidest.  Guess they don't teach about the Wright brothers and Kitty Hawk, NC up in Michigan.

Either Austin Powers or Kevin Costner in Bull Durham

Actually it was Michael Caine who played Nigel Powers, Austin's dad. Movie was Goldmember.

I hope they draft someone who can shoot. Amazing how many jump shots clang off the rim.

#2751972 The Purpose for Going to College

Posted by captfluoro on 25 April 2014 - 09:02 PM

It really depends on what you plan on doing.  If you want to be a doctor, lawyer, engineer then you have to not only go to college but you have to excel in your classes.  I myself went the college, med school, doctor route.  One of my former partners and I used to talk about if we knew back in college what medicine is like today we probably wouldn't have gone to med school.  But I absolutely agree that not everyone should go to college.  While some people may not be "book smart" they may be very gifted technically, artistically, etc and a trade school or some other form of learning would benefit them much better.  I myself would love to retire in 10 years then go back and learn something technical or mechanical like carpentry or engine repair.  Any person who puts in time to better themselves or their situation in life, no matter how, is doing it right.
