: Mahsha, Mahsha, Mahsha....I think your other half has been

: so far there's no confirmation of that. I'm hoping that

: My feeble opinions on Private Ryan and TRL -- didn't keer

: photographed -- some of the images were mind-boggling,
: but 3 hours of listening to people muttering their

: My favorite historical movies of all time? Excluding

: down. Nobody makes 'em like that anymore. Quiz Show
: for another. Great story, impeccable acting from

: movie is Land of the Pharoahs, with Joan Collins
: as Pharoah's evil concubine. It's got it all --
: mind-bending casting, cheese-whiz dialogue, hellacious
: headgear. You'll laugh, you'll cry!!

Quite the debate here! Look what you've started, Joe!
Saving Private Ryan??? Fell asleep during the first third only to wake up at the end; and haven't felt the urge to watch what I'd missed. Haven't seen TRL. Apocalypse Now...one of the best movies ever made, in my humble opinion. Lawrence of Arabia is great, but I like Dr. Zhivago a tad better.
Boy, weren't those the days...a great 15 minute break in the middle of the movie when you were young and didn't necessarily need it, and now when I could use one....no break. (My buddy had to tell me the extact scene during Titantic which he felt I didn't need to see to race out so I wouldn't miss anything....) However, don't believe I'd had missed anything even if I'd strolled out and had a cup of coffee....
Doc, I had the same "idenity" problem with two of the characters in Close Encounters of the 3rd kind. For the life of me, I couldn't understand how this guy could be in so many places sooo fast....
LOTM does top the chart, though. No idenity problems there!
