Spoiler:
1. Fill the 5 gallon jug and decant the water into the 3 gallon jug. This leaves two gallons in the big jug. 2. Empty the 3 gallon jug and pour in the two gallons from the 5 gallon jug, leaving space for one gallon in the small jug. 3. Refill the 5 gallon jug and pour water from it into the 3 gallon jug until the small jug's full. 4. That leaves exactly four gallons in the big jug; put it on the scale and the bomb is disarmed. The second method is: 1. Fill the 3 gallon jug and pour the water into the 5 gallon jug. 2. Refill the 3 gallon jug, and pour into the 5 gallon jug until the big jug is full, leaving one gallon in the small jug. 3. Empty the big jug, and transfer the one gallon from the small jug to the big jug. 4. Refill the small jug and pour all three gallons into the 5 gallon jug, resulting in four gallons in the big jug. Place the big jug on the scale and the bomb is disarmed.

Woody Allens latest To Rome with Love was a semi interesting take on success and fame, had a few moments, pretty much a miss, although Penelope Cruz is quite the looker.

I'm glad more people are saying how good Dredd is. People would give me funny looks when I told them it was actually really good

I don't think i'll give it a chance. I don't have any expectations of it being good or bad, I just have no interest in seeing it.

I saw the Dredd trailer before Expendables 2 - my first thought was that it looked exactly like The Raid Redemption.

The plot is similar, but The Raid is more on the martial arts side, where Dredd goes much bigger with the guns and explosions.

Dredd got me thinking about how cool it would be to do like a Batman movie where its all in one day, in one location. Like Arkham Asylum, or something... Where the whole movie is just 90 minutes of Batman fighting villains non stop.

Haha with the way Nolan filmed the batman fights, hopefully they'd change the style. I think something like that with Spider-Man would be cool.

Les Miserables was non-stop singing from beginning to end.

Watched Thor over the weekend, so I'm caught up on those movies. I enjoyed it about the same as Captain America... maybe a bit more. I'd say The Incredible Hulk was my least favorite of the movies, though it wasn't bad in its own right.

Captain America was probably my favorite sans the Iron Man movies.

I liked everything except the love story in Thor. I thought the Asgard stuff was fantastic.

I really liked Captain America, but the 2nd half feels a bit rushed. I didn't get a sense that he did a whole lot as Captain America before getting frozen.

What I liked about hulk is that it didn't waste any time on the origin story. There isn't a whole lot of fat on that movie, and it tells its story efficiently, at least.

The first Iron Man is pretty much a perfect comic book movie. good consistent tone throughout, effective origin story, satisfying character arc... The sequel was not as good, but at least felt like they were in the same universe.

I guess that's the good thing about all these movies is that they feel connected, even with different writers and directors. They all have the same tone, and feel like the same world.
