ooh, I was just talking about this last night with my family. I think its ridiculous to take out the Twin Towers from movies. I agree with sensitivity, but should we pretend that they were never there? Should we ignore them? I don't think so.<br><br>But, that's just my two cents.

Unfortunately, they change books when they turn them into movies all the time. I don't always necessarily agree with it, but I don't a whole lot of say. They changed Hearts in Atlantis significantly when it became a movie; however that was to "water it down" for mass consumption. Stephen King isn't ...

I have to disagree with Ben Affleck. I like 'em. I'm sure I'm gonna take flack on this one, but he's not so bad. He's made some bad career moves, but so has Damon. (All the Pretty Horses anyone? Legend of Bagger Vance?) But, a bad movie does not a bad actor make. I think they're both pretty talented.

No, she's not the whole point. It was a 2-dimensional relationship that served as a weak plot-point. It could have been handled better. I felt nothing for her. She did nothing but irritate me and make me wonder why she even existed in the movie. But, that's just my opinion. If she blew your hair bac...

I, for one, have not seen Vanilla Sky. I'll probably rent it when it comes out on DVD. However, I do have an opinion on Penelope. She cannot possibly be more over-rated than she is today. Am I the only that thinks that she owes about 95% of her stardom to the fact that she's schtooping Mr. Cruise? T...

Hey, no need to get nasty. "Retard" isn't a nice word. "Mentally disabled" is much preferred. Although, why don't you try putting yourself in their place one day. It isn't as easy as you think.

Don't know if you'd call it "plan", but I saw "Head Above Water" again recently and was reminded of how underrated this movie is. If you haven't seen it... do so! Oh, and don't let Cameron Diaz put you off.

Ok, if I said "that damn ballet movie that was a pile of poo", would everyone know what I meant? HBO has it on constant rotation. I think it's called Center Stage.
