Sure, the live A&E choices were slim--which contributed to a big weekend at the movie box office.

So what did you see? And what did you think? "Lincoln"? "Twilight"? "Life of Pi"? "Skyfall"?

Your thoughts?

  • Lincoln
    "Lincoln" is a must see if you want to understand the roots of the struggles of our political system. Not an action movie, you know it will end badly, but worth seeing for its historical value and parallels to our current political climate.
  • Don't miss it!
    Lincoln. Fabulous. Outstanding performances by Daniel Day-Lewis & David Strathairn.
  • Life of Pi
    The movie didn't disappoint. I read the book, and was eagerly awaiting its release. It was GREAT!
  • Silver Linings Playbook
    Silver Linings Playbook was an excellent movie, with impressive performances all around. It's a small story about big issues.
  • Lincoln
    Great movie-well done. Great American History lesson for everyone!
  • Lincoln
    Mr. Spielberg's Lincoln is an outstanding piece of moving making. Mr. Day-Lewis gave the performance of his life-time. It is America's politcal system at its best and at its worse all at the same time.
  • Lincoln, Argo, Skyfall
    Skyfall: Great Bond flick but it is still a Bond flick. Nothing cerebral but a lot of fun. Argo: Great movie, keeps your attention, not completely historically accurate. Lincoln: Not just a movie, a cinematic masterpiece. Incredible acting led by Daniel Day Lewis followed closely by a great cast. It is a classic that will be shown 50 years from now.
  • Lincoln
    My husband wanted to see this and I wanted something else. So glad we went to see Lincoln. Superbly done by all involved. Academy award material! I picked up on several history facts that I had not known.

  1. By Mr. Lee's own admission, he basically ran pro-bono ads on the billboard. Paying advertisers didn't want ads on a controversial, ugly billboard that turned off customers. At least one of Mr. Lee's free advertisers dropped out early because they found that Mr. Lee's advertising was having negative impact. So Mr. Lee is disingenous to say the city now owes him for lost revenue. Mr. Lee quickly realized his monstrosity had a dim future and is trying to get the city to bail him out. And that's why the billboard came down so quickly.

  2. Merchants Square is back. The small strip center to the south of 116th is 100% leased, McAlister’s is doing well in the outlot building. The former O’Charleys is leased but is going through permitting with the State and the town of Carmel. Mac Grill is closing all of their Indy locations (not just Merchants) and this will allow for a new restaurant concept to backfill both of their locations. As for the north side of 116th a new dinner movie theater and brewery is under construction to fill most of the vacancy left by Hobby Lobby and Old Navy.

  3. Yes it does have an ethics commission which enforce the law which prohibits 12 specific items. google it

  4. Thanks for reading and replying. If you want to see the differentiation for research, speaking and consulting, check out the spreadsheet I linked to at the bottom of the post; it is broken out exactly that way. I can only include so much detail in a blog post before it becomes something other than a blog post.

  5. 1. There is no allegation of corruption, Marty, to imply otherwise if false. 2. Is the "State Rule" a law? I suspect not. 3. Is Mr. Woodruff obligated via an employment agreement (contractual obligation) to not work with the engineering firm? 4. In many states a right to earn a living will trump non-competes and other contractual obligations, does Mr. Woodruff's personal right to earn a living trump any contractual obligations that might or might not be out there. 5. Lawyers in state government routinely go work for law firms they were formally working with in their regulatory actions. You can see a steady stream to firms like B&D from state government. It would be interesting for IBJ to do a review of current lawyers and find out how their past decisions affected the law firms clients. Since there is a buffer between regulated company and the regulator working for a law firm technically is not in violation of ethics but you have to wonder if decisions were made in favor of certain firms and quid pro quo jobs resulted. Start with the DOI in this review. Very interesting.
