    From the movie 500 days with Summer.

    On January 8, Tom Hansen meets Summer Finn, the new assistant to his boss. Tom trained as an architect but works as a writer at a greeting card company, living in Los Angeles. Following a karaoke night, Tom's co-worker, McKenzie, lets slip that Tom is attracted to Summer. Over the next few months Summer and Tom grow closer, despite Summer making it clear to Tom that she does not believe in true love, and does not want a boyfriend.

    Tom shows Summer his favorite spot in the city, which looks out over a number of buildings he likes, although the view is spoiled by parking lots. After a few weeks dating, Tom gets into a fight with a guy chatting up Summer, and they have their first argument. On day 290, Summer and Tom split up after they see The Graduate, a film which Tom thinks shows true love. Tom does not take the break up well and Tom's friends call his younger sister, Rachel, to calm him down.

    Summer quits the greeting card company and Tom's boss moves him to consolations, as his depression is not suitable for happier events. Months later Summer and Tom attend the wedding of a co-worker, they dance at the wedding and Summer catches the bouquet. They sit next to each other on the journey home and Summer invites Tom to a party at her apartment. Tom attends the party and sees that Summer is wearing an engagement ring. Realizing what is being celebrated, he leaves the party. Tom enters a deep depression, only leaving his apartment for alcohol and junk food. After a few days, he returns to work hungover and quits his job. He sets about re-applying himself to architecture, makes a list of firms, and begins to attend interviews.

    On day 488, he meets Summer at his favorite spot and they talk; he wishes her well. Twelve days later, on Wednesday, May 23, he attends a job interview and meets a girl, who is also applying for the same job. Before entering the interview, he makes a date to have coffee with her afterward. He asks her for her name, and she replies, "Autumn."

    Ben Carpenter and his co-worker Esai skip out on work with him to go scuba diving for lobster. During his dive, Ben pries a large tooth out of an underwater fiber optic cable. Two divers from the company confront him and they surface. They chastise him for being near the cable, and he tells them about the tooth. Later, Ben tries to identify the shark from the tooth, emailing a picture of it to a research center. That night, Cat Stone views the photo and quickly heads to Mexico. She initially tells Ben that it was from a normal shark, then calls in a film crew because she recognized the tooth as coming from a Megalodon, a prehistoric shark long believed to be extinct. Her crew, Davis and Friedman, arrive quickly to document the shark.

    When the shark eats a para-sailing group, Cat feels responsible for the killings and tells Ben everything she knows. Meanwhile, Chuck, an ex-navy submariner who works for Apex, discovers that the company knew about the sharks and had lost several men while installing the cables. Enraged, he confronts the CEO Mr. Tolley and is fired, after being assured that no one would believe him. He joins with Ben and Cat. They come up with an idea to attach a homing device to the shark so that a Mark 44 torpedo can lock on to it. However, Cat still wants to study it rather than kill it.

    The shark attacks the research vessel and ends up trapping Ben and Cat in the boat's cabin. Cat is able to grab a nearby shotgun and kill the shark. However, they learn that the shark they killed was only a baby. Its mother, a much larger Megalodon arrives and capsizes the boat. It eats Esai and his motorboat in one bite, and later eats Davis and Friedman. Ben goes to his boss, but he refuses to tell the public about the problem so Ben quits. Unable to find help and with Cat now ready to kill the shark, they decide to go to the torpedo method using Chuck's mini-sub.

    Meanwhile, the trans-pacific fiber optic cable network is complete and Tolly decides to celebrate by having a yacht party. The Megalodon attacks the boat, knocking many people into the water. Some try to escape on inflatable rafts, but the shark eats the whole boat. Tolly finds a jet ski and tries to leave, but he ends up driving straight into the shark's mouth. Chuck, Ben, and Cat arrive, but Cat is unable to successfully attach the homing device with a cross bow. Chuck puts on his scuba gear and leaves the sub to attach it manually. However, after it is confirmed to be in place, it falls off. Realizing the sub is the only other thing the torpedo can lock onto, Ben adjusts its settings and waits for the shark to bite on it. He fires the torpedo and quickly escapes through the main hatch. The torpedo hits the shark, blowing it up. The shock wave knocks Ben unconscious, but Cat and Chuck are able to retrieve him. As they celebrate their victory, another Megalodon is shown swimming in another part of the ocean.

    I like this game It's kind of easy though!!


    In the year 3000, Earth has been ruled for 1,000 years by the Psychlos, a brutal race of giant humanoid aliens. The remnants of humanity are either enslaved by the Psychlos and used for manual labor or survive in primitive tribes living in remote areas outside Psychlo control. Jonnie Goodboy Tyler, a member of one such tribe, leaves his home in the Rocky Mountains on a journey of exploration. He joins forces with Carlo, a hunter, but both men are captured by a Psychlo raiding party and transported to a slave camp at the Psychlos' main base on Earth, a giant dome built over the ruins of Denver, Colorado.

    Terl, the Psychlo security chief on Earth, has been condemned by his superiors to remain indefinitely at his post on Earth as punishment for an unclear incident involving "the Senator's daughter." Aided by his deputy, Ker, Terl devises a plan to buy his way off the planet by making a fortune using human slaves to mine gold in radioactive areas. Psychlos are unable to visit such areas due to the explosive interaction of the gas that they breathe with radionuclide particles. Terl selects Jonnie as his "foreman" for the project and gives him a Psychlo education using a rapid-learning machine. Terl gives Jonnie a party of slaves and a Psychlo flying shuttle and orders him to go out and find gold.

    After learning the Psychlos' language, history, and a myriad of other educational forms from the rapid learning machine, Jonnie plots a human uprising against the Psychlos. He obtains gold from Fort Knox to satisfy Terl's demands, instead of mining gold as ordered. Jonnie and his followers find an abandoned underground US military base with working aircraft, weapons, fuel, and nuclear weapons. They use the base's flight simulators to train themselves in aerial combat.

    After a week of training, the rebels launch a mass uprising against the Psychlos using Harrier jump-jets and other weapons. Carlo sacrifices himself to destroy the dome over Denver, and the Psychlos inside suffocate in Earth's atmosphere, which they are unable to breathe. Jonnie captures a Psychlo teleportation device and uses it to teleport an atomic bomb to the Psychlo home world. The ensuing detonation causes the entire Psychlo atmosphere to explode, wiping out the planet. Ker and Terl survive on Earth but face different fates: Ker sides with the victorious humans, while Terl is imprisoned as a hostage within a vault in Fort Knox. The film ends with the humans in control of Earth but facing an uncertain future.

    See? Now you are making smiles!!!

    The film starts with Jesse meeting Céline on a train from Budapest and striking up a conversation with her. Jesse is going to Vienna to catch a flight back to the United States, whereas Céline is returning to university in Paris after visiting her grandmother.
    When they reach Vienna, Jesse convinces Céline to disembark with him, saying that 10 or 20 years down the road, she might not be happy with her marriage and might wonder how her life would have been different if she had picked another guy, and this is a chance to realize that he himself is not that different from the rest; in his words, he is "the same boring, unmotivated guy." Jesse has to catch a flight early in the morning and does not have enough money to rent a room for the night, so they decide to roam around in Vienna.
    After visiting a few landmarks in Vienna, they share a kiss at the top of the Riesenrad ferris wheel at sunset and start to feel a romantic connection. As they continue to roam around the city, they begin to talk more openly with each other, with conversations ranging from topics about love, life, religion, and their observations of the city.
    Céline tells Jesse that her last boyfriend broke up with her six months ago, claiming that she "loved him too much". When questioned, Jesse reveals he had initially come to Europe to spend time with his girlfriend who was studying in Madrid, but they had broken up when she was avoiding him while he was there. He decided to take a cheap flight out of Europe, out of Vienna, but it didn't leave for two weeks so he bought a Eurail pass and traveled around Europe.
    When they are walking alongside the Donaukanal (danube canal) they are approached by a man who, instead of begging, offers to write them a poem with a word of their choice in it. Jesse and Céline decide on the word "milkshake", and are soon presented with the poem Delusion Angel (written for the film by the poet David Jewell).
    In a traditional Viennese café, Jesse and Céline stage fake phone conversations with each other, playing each others' friends they pretend to call. Céline reveals that she was ready to get off the train with Jesse before he convinced her. Jesse reveals that after he broke up with his girlfriend, he bought a flight that really wasn't much cheaper, and all he really wanted was an escape from his life.
    They admit their attraction to each other and how the night has made them feel, though they understand that they probably won't see each other again when they leave. They simply decide to make the best of what time they have left, ending the night with the implication of a sexual encounter between them. At that point, Jesse explains that if given the choice, he'd marry her instead of never seeing her again. The film ends the next day at the train station (Wien Westbahnhof), where the two hastily agree to meet together at the same place in six months as the train is about to leave.

    Just a little something to brighten up your day. :flower: Praise Jesus.

    The son of Robert Gant, director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), is kidnapped when he returns home from Berlin from a trip. Michael (Gant's son) is escorted by a heavilly armed DIA escort. On the way they are ambushed by a hooded figure, Sever. Sever then kidnaps Michael. Former FBI agent Jeremiah Ecks is asked by his old boss to investigate the case. He discovers that the kidnapper must be one of the Chinese girls the DIA adopts and trains as agents. He also discovers that Gant stole a dangerous nanobot assassin, which operates in the human circulatory system. Gant had placed the nanobot in his son's body in order to smuggle it to North America.

    Robert Gant is married to Vinn, who was previously married to Ecks. Gant separated Vinn and Ecks by staging the death (by car bomb) of each of them to the other; Vinn was officially declared dead and had a closed-casket funeral attended by Ecks. Gant had also killed the husband and child of his colleague Sever, who subsequently kidnapped Gant's son to avenge herself. It turns out that it is not Gant but Ecks who is the father of the child.

    A final battle happens near an old railroad station. There Ross and Gant confront Ecks and Sever. Gant tries to bargain with Sever but, Sever is sure that it is too late. A long gunfight follows with Ecks and Sever blasting DIA agents and SWAT teams. Ecks and Sever manage to beat the SWAT teams and swarms of agents. Sever then gets in a one-on-one fight with Ross. She eventually wins the fight and kills Gant too. After local police and FBI agents arrive they find no evidence of Sever being there. Ecks reunites with his family.
