: Mahsha, Mahsha, Mahsha....I think your other half has been
: giving you too many sips from her *teacup*. "Steely BLUE
: eyes?" Sure an' they're green, Miss -- green as the hills
: of the auld sod. As for the latest, rumor has it he might
: be doing a film about Henry VIII with Kate Winslett, but
: so far there's no confirmation of that. I'm hoping that
: with his penchant for living the part he'll chop off his
: current wife's head. *sigh* A girl can dream, can't she?

: My feeble opinions on Private Ryan and TRL -- didn't keer
: fer neither of 'em. Like someone said, after the first
: incredible 30 minutes PR turned hokey. TRL was beautifully
: photographed -- some of the images were mind-boggling,
: but 3 hours of listening to people muttering their
: innermost thoughts did not work for me, except as a
: surefire cure for insomnia. Plus I'm so dull-witted
: I thought two of the main characters were the same
: person and I couldn't figure out why the guy's name
: kept changing. LOL! Maybe I've been hitting the old
: teacup to heavily my own self.

: My favorite historical movies of all time? Excluding
: the obvious, of course? Lawrence of Arabia -- hands
: down. Nobody makes 'em like that anymore. Quiz Show
: for another. Great story, impeccable acting from
: everyone. And my favorite hysterical historical
: 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!!

: PS And I LIKED Apocalypse now!! So there!!!


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 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 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!
