Movies You Should See if You Haven't

I'm getting this out of the way now

(Not necessarily in order, except for the first two)

Citizen Kane
The Godfather, I and II (duh)
All Charlie Kaufman movies (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind)
Fight Club
The Aristocrats!
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
Streetcar Named Desire
On the Waterfront
At least one Kenneth Branagh Shakespeare movie (NOT Love's Labours Lost!)
Apocalypse Now
A Clockwork Orange

To Think About

Thought of the Day:

Ok, so we're supposed to be spreading freedom and democracy in our War Against Terror--err--Struggle Against Radical Extremism, right? According to the White House, our enemies are fighting freedom, peace, and democracy, so it would seem that they want to spread tyrrany and oppression. A battle of ideals.

In that case, every time our government takes away some of our civil liberties, it would be giving the terrorists what they want, and helping them win. Hmm...

Perhaps if our government actually believes in freedom, it should encourage dissent, not want to shut it up.

The First Eclectic Post

Greetings. This blog has been started late at night, sort of by accident, to be honest. But that will not stop it from taking off as the hottest thing to hit the internet since

a)netflix
b)Denise Richards

(take your pick.)

What you can expect from it:

-thoughts on life
-humor (at least, I'll find it funny)
-political thinkings
-film posts
-a bunch of posts that will probably be read by (at most) four people, one of whom is you
-anything else existing in the eclectic mind of Leor Hackel. Which leaves a whole lot. I would sure want to be one of the three other people, if I were you.

I'm tired now. As I said, it's late at night. You can expect the first post here tomorrow. Or later.
