Here Comes Mr. Jordan 1941......although I do find this original very enjoyable, I'm feeling the remake might be slightly better (comically anyway).

Heaven Can Wait is one of my favorite visit-to-theater memories ever. Maybe it was just time/place and I'm sure it would lessen upon repeat viewings -- but I never even wante to see HCMJ because of my love for the Beatty pic.

I'd still give it a viewing.....great cast, story the same.

Schindler's List 1993 Can't put into words how much this movie means to me. If only one movie a year could be this good.

Why doesn't she just go to the young James and tell him who to look for when the time comes?

Has "Communism was a red herring" been a FW gag? Pretty sure it has.

Somebody please talk me out of thinking Beasts of Southern Wild isn't incredibly boring and full of loathsome characters. What's the big deal about this movie? I get that the little lead girl is doing a decent job but every other actor is well below par. The guy next to me at work is watching that Will Ferrell/Marky Mark buddy cop movie and I sort feel jealous.
The :) means it's all ok.

I won't be the one to talk you out of it since I felt the same way. Well, "loathsome" seems like it may be a bit strong, but, yeah. Plus, QUVENZHANEWALLIS is 16 letters—no good for a 15x15 crossword. Jerque.

What if you went with the plural QUVENZHANEWALLI?

Good point.

Though I'll have to wait for there to be more than one—it's like SHAQS, which won't ever fly without another (e.g., I don't see a clue like [Lakers center O'Neal and others] ever running)...

So they've just blown up the ice cap covering their underwater base, and what do the smaller chunks of ice now do? That's right. They sink.

How much dumber can Hollywood get? The answer is none. None more dumber.
