Anyone seen a movie called Sabotage? - Patrick_Bateman
I had not heard of it until today. Considering watching it tonight. Looks like it got bad reviews, but I've really liked everything else David Ayer has done [Training Day (writer), End of Watch, Fury]. Anyone have any comments on it? Starring Arnold Schwarzenneger. Here's a trailer: https://www.y...

I'm 30 years old, have a stable income and a high risk tolerance, and I'm looking at a 30-40 year window (before starting withdrawals). 20+ percent of my income will be directed to this portfolio, and I'm committed to making monthly contributions and staying the course with my asset allocation strat...

OT's Thoughts on Dating a Female Urologist - Patrick_Bateman
She's in her 20s, a urology resident, hot (a solid IRL 8), smart, a blast to hang out with, and we have great chemistry. No sex yet. Is there any reason to be hesitant or concerned that she's seeing who-knows-how-many dicks every day? Or should I just expect that from any girl? ETA: Sorry, no ...

New investor here. I'll be starting my medical residency in July (my first real job) and will have to make a few investment decisions. First, I must choose between Social Security and a Deferred Compensation Plan. They'll require contributions of 6.2% and 7.5% of my base annual salary, respective...

Has Anyone Ever Had a Good Experience with a Mechanic? - Patrick_Bateman
Seems like every time I get my oil changed or tires rotated, new problems are discovered that need to be repaired. Car is usually running perfectly fine, but there's always a new filter that needs to be replaced, a gauge that needs updating, a new engine fluid to try, etc. List prices for labor, oil...

Mayweather/Pacquiao: At Last (Documentary) - Patrick_Bateman
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hF76dlQt23c Searched, nothing. About a week old, so many people have already seen it, I'm sure. But the video is so good that it's worthy of its own thread. Even if you don't like boxing, even if you have no interest whatsoever in this fight, I encourage you to wat...

Re: Underrated Spy Movies - The Good Shepherd - Patrick_Bateman
Vastly underrated IMO. The Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy thread brought this movie to mind. I can see The Good Shepherd dividing audiences along similar lines. Some will consider overlong, plodding, boring. Others (like myself) will consider it fascinating, thrilling, and worth every minute. Both mov...

Old news (just now realized): In the Heart of the Sea moved back to December - Patrick_Bateman
Something made me think of this movie today, and how I had been looking forward to watching it in March. Googled it, and apparently it's been moved back to December. Just an FYI for anyone (like me) who might've been wondering what happened to it. http://variety.com/2015/film/news/warner-bros-mov...

A Most Violent Year - Patrick_Bateman
Finally got around to watching yesterday. I was a little disappointed, to be honest; mainly because I had built up too high of expectations for it. I loved Margin Call and All Is Lost (JC Chandor's first two movies) and I had seen some comparisons between the styles of A Most Violent Year and The Go...

Oatmeal - How Do [i]You[/i] Make It? - Patrick_Bateman
I've been eating more and more oatmeal. I am told it's healthy, and it makes a quick, solid, stick-to-your-ribs breakfast IMO. I've been going with steel cut oats (which take a little longer to cook), but I make 4 servings at a time and store the others in the fridge for each day of the week. Bas...
