Re: Random encounters years later

From 2002 to 2004 I worked for a local Borders bookstore. This year I began a master's program and I found out that my old HR manager from the bookstore just graduated from that program. From 2004 to 2005 I worked for a subprime mortgage lender. I got really close with this girl who also worked ther...

Drama.

Feel free to mix in action, comedy, satire, sci-fi, fantasy, or anything else you like, but keep the center story serious and realistic, and you've hooked me.

Inglourious Basterds. I've never fully been a fan of Tarantino's work, and when I saw the trailers I figured it was just another one of his dark comedies serving as a vehicle for Brad Pitt.
