Rent a Movie?

I was with some friend earlier in the night and we drove to Apple Bees by going on the 2nd ring road. Since I was driving I decided to bust out Connie and do some war driving. I didn’t find anything on that road expect RoRo.

I found RoRo on the traffic light between Qadsia and Yarmouk Mansouriya. I didn’t have time to connect to it since the light turned green. Later when we reached the 2nd Ring and Istiqlal Highway I found RoRo again and with a very strong signal. So I connected and found it was a computer to computer connection. It just confused me a signal that strong came was from Qadsia to Dasman. I think it could have been another laptop or even a PDA that was in the car next to me. I am going to be going on that road again later to see if I can find it.

I saw the movie Gacy about the serial killer John Wayne Gacy. This movie is indie and shows it in the filming. I think it was a intentional to make it feel that it was set in the 70s.

Basically the movie gives a different view of Gacy showing his life and the events that led to his capture. The movie wasn’t slow, hospital and not boring it was just eh. It was missing something the actors played their roles very well especially Mark Holton as Gacy. I think the direction and maybe the script needed some work. There was no suspense or anticipation. I really didn’t care either way if he killed anyone else or that he was going to get captured.

I think the movie’s focus was how teenage boys who get beaten by their dad or can’t communicate with their parents either become gay or serial killers. Cause the first scene was a teenage Gacy getting beaten up by his father on a fishing trip,. Then later in the movie you see him having heart to heart talks with teenage boys telling them to talk with their dads and that their parents love them and during these scenes you actually see him some what emotional.

So if you are into serial killers watch it, if you aren’t dont bother its not worth it.

How to get that perfect shave. Telling people the way to shave. It was pretty ok, sickness
nothign new or amsuing, but what got to me is how much people in America pay for a barber shave is from $50-$100. Thats insane!

I myself only shave at the barbers, I dont have a shaving kit at home, (which is why sometimes I have a good growth of hair cause I dont have time to go get a shave) and just pay from 500fils to 1Kd.

I know of other barbers that will give you the full treatment of massage, hair removal from ears and cheak bones and even a facail scrub and all for 5kd.

Americans must have forgotten how to pamper themselves and just allowed themselves to get ripped of when they do.

Talking to Mark on MSN and he mentioned that I should rent a movie:

Mark says:
rent the movie home alone
Nibaq says:
rent a movie?
Mark says:
yeah forgot

I remember back in the 80s going to Video Club in Salmiya and roaming around their shelves and shelves of videos looking for something to rent, capsule picking out movies by name, or just trying to finish a whole shelf. Even in the US going to Blockbuster or Hollywood Video, or one of the indie ones just roaming the rows looking for a movie. It was just an experience on its own roaming and hoping you can think of a movie to rent then hoping that it is still there.

In Kuwait now we just go to Hawalli look at books, pick out a movie, question the guy on it’s quality, have him swear that it is perfect copy and no problems, wait 10 minutes for them to bring it, take it home and see that its not perfect like movie stopping halfway through, or its a cam job and not a DVD copy. Then saying damn that guy and swearing never to buy from him again and going to return the movie. Then just saying screw it and do something else.

Sadly that doesn’t sound as entertaining. I think the rental business will do good in Kuwait, have a flat rate payment. Like NetFlix and even home delivery like Kozmo used to do. People can sit at home get online order a movie maybe have some cross promotional thing with fast food places for special deals. Within 15 minutes you have the movie, and the food you ordered.

Then you return it when you feel like it, but like NetFlix your only allowed 3 at a time. The movie was perfect, you got food and didn’t leave your house to deal with Hawalli or the bad copies you might get.

I think it would be a very viable business. The only hitch that I would see is the censorship and stuff. I am sure there can be work arounds with that by having 18 and up policy.

Update
One other thing that comes to mind is that in Hawalli you never find classic movies, only recent ones. So with the rental shop you can have an archive of movies and serve a wide variety of tastes.

  1. part of NetFlix module depend the US postal system

    thinking you could depend on kuwait postal system is bad
    establishing your own delevry network is a bit costly

  2. You just reminded me of the bad experience of renting movies in Tunisia too. The guy swears the copy is clean and “original” and then it turns out you have a jacket hanging over half the screen while the guy filming it from the cinema squirms and twists in his seat, coughing and eating popcorn for extra special effects.
    Plus, to make it all worse, it’s in French and whatever is left of the movie’s greatness goes to hell.

    Nowadays, I only rent DVDs. Good picture, English and enjoyable, that’s if the previous customer didn’t choose to polish the floor or serve pizza with/on it.

  3. Forza: Thats why I mentioned Kozmo.com they had delivery service.

    MMM (quicker than Marwen) It is a pain and a chore to be a movie lover in the Arab world at times. It is weir seeing Arab movies from the 60s and 70s and the rich culture they had. I am surprised they haven’t started censoring those.
