After further inverted curvature of US Treasury deuce and dimes with global recessionary harbinge,
I fled the City for steak and ale to sit The Big Short (2015) directed Adam McKay; all focused shadow bank
exotic sub prime mortgages long past Glass-Steagall repeal, its inherent flaw find, wrought collateralized
debt obligation instrument, subsequent short trade done by deliberate professionals that brought tornadic
winds against a veritable housing industry card stack of bundled errors. Pitt is here with Bale and Carrell,
pirates all with melancholic mood perchance conscience loosely based the always spot Michael Lewis
and book same dub. Innovative, stylized, a Margot Robie bath scene sipping champagne to compensate
for having to sit thru Barbie at the Imax here; yet it all works like a thoroughbred stakes superfecta magically
felled down intact puzzle. The Fed late to the party of course. New York, my second home after London.

Found a cheesy one. Murder at the Museum 1934.
Brash reporter investigates a murder of a mayoral candidate at a side show museum. Somewhat comedic in that it's not a movie to take seriously. This is a difficult one to write about as it's predictable enough that I'd give away the entire plot and movie in a brief synopsis. Fun and an easy watch however thin the story may be. It seems the actors were having fun making this one. I would recommend it.

The 2006 version of Casino Royale was on the television this evening with Daniel Craig in the title role.
After receiving a license to kill, British Secret Service agent James Bond heads to Madagascar, where he uncovers a link to Le Chiffre, a man who finances terrorist organisations. Learning that Le Chiffre plans to raise money in a high-stakes poker game, MI6 sends Bond to play against him, gambling that their newest "00" operative will topple the man's organisation.
Have to say, Craig does a far better Bond than than any previous actors that have played the part since Sean Connery. Eva Green, as well as being eye candy, was the perfect foil for double "O" seven.

That movie has the most laughable poker hand scene in the history of anything. It was like quads vs. straight flush vs. higher straight flush vs royal flush or something. The odds of that happening are akin to an alien landing in your front yard and then cooking you up some steak fajitas and then singing you a lullaby to sleep before leaving the planet.

Say no more, perchance Harry Palmer in the eastie mold, perhaps. Craig himself hasn't the patina patrician,
nor class act Pierce Brosnan brought Bond, Rolex left wrist elegance tuxedo turned out, gingerly fingering a dealt Queen of Hearts facing Miss Upentop. Meself Irish, twist English and Scot but all wolfhound, so Pierce tis
it, best overall and that includes Sean, next favourite.

Michael Fassbender is The Killer (2023) directed David Fincher, a difficult to follow, easy to lose oneself for a few
hours assassin romp that starts in Paris, moves on to the Dominican Republic, New Orleans, Chicago, New York,
then finally back square hideout Dominican Republic. Peripatetic hired gun misses his Parisian mark; which quite frankly said as a Parachute Regiment necktie was an easy shot. A stripper dancer ate the .223 round,
all he had to do was wait a second more then squeeze the trigger like a woman's breast, but clapped her ass
hard and all hell hits the fan. Cool and precise, methodical flee rush, and he escapes.

There is some serious shit blowback and it's a hellish ride. Still drinking Tercie single malt Irish tipple with ice.

Nice review. If you are so inclined, it would be great to see a picture of your new suit when you get it. Either way, enjoy it and wear it in good health.
I had a couple of final adjustments but I brought my suit home yesterday. I put some pictures up. https://www.thefedoralounge.com/threads/show-us-your-suits.26/

Side note. I watched D.O.A last night. That was a very good movie. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Plenty of action and suspense. I was enthralled throughout. At first I despised the lead Mr. Bigelow. He was easy to dislike. Womanizing and cold to a good loyal woman. His realization of his mistakes as the movie progresses was visible and well played. I liked this one.

That happened to you, too?

I thought it was just me.

Thank you for posting the pictures. That's a beautiful suit. One small suggestion, since you paid for made-to-measure, is that it looks like the sleeve is not set properly in the armhole, which is why you're getting so many ripples with your arm only slightly turned. Also, I'd have them check the length of both sleeves to make sure they are the same length and your preferred amount of shirt cuff is showing with your arms straight at your sides (mine is 1/4 inch). Let me emphasize, though, if you do nothing, it is still a beautiful suit and you look great in it. Those are just small suggestions from a long-time suit wearer.

It looks odd because I was rushing to get in front of the camera and didn't have time to get things perfect. Three second timer.

Careful hombre. I stumbled into this thread as well, and it seems it’s only for run-on sentences or those equipped with a nearby thesaurus. Yours and my direct replies might be out of place

Whatever floats your boat.
Bond fell for Gimlet Eye's straight flush barracks bluff.

Melissa McCarthy portrays writer Lee Israel in a literate tale of redemption in Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2019).
Directed by Marielle Heller with Richard Grant supporting.
When despondent alcoholic and fallen New York Times best seller author Israel turns literary forger, she eventually is found out and ensnared by the FBI. Manhattan locale and Village bookstores alone recommend
this true story which eventually became a published mea culpa. Forgive Me features sub plot socially isolated
New Yorkers linked by the thinnest webs with emphasis LG community. A real gemstone. Tercie on ice.
