Anybody else seen it yet?
If you like the NYC Indy type flicks, you'll like it.
It definitely had heart. There were no ending credits at all. Mark Ruffalo was very solid. He's an underrated actor IMO.

Would it be possible for someone to do a STTDB like standing sign on top of the boxes on top? :lol:

Welcome to Houston Barves fans, and the fricking American League.
We were all looking forward to this series earlier in the month...but we've hit the skids in the last 2 weeks and can't buy a win.
Young, inconsistent, streaky baseball is the brand that we play.
Here's to a good series :ch...

This is a big week for the big club.
Fresh off of winning 11 of their last 15, and going 5-1 with 2 splits in their last 8 series, the Astros really need to seize that momentum and string together several wins this week.
A 4 game sweep of the lowly DBacks would put us at 32-36, and should we b...

To be honest, it blew me away. De Niro was fantastic. He and Cooper are the best on screen duo since Damon/Williams in Good Will Hunting.
