  • Who Should've Won?   15 years 11 weeks ago

    I found Titanic quite amazing. The script did have problems, but the film's large emotions and impressive story and visuals steamrolled over these. Titanic was quite a worthy winner.

  • Where Dance Slams Into the Mainstream - The 15 Best Trip-Hop, Big Beat, and Jungle Albums of the 90s   15 years 11 weeks ago

    Thank you. I discovered a used CD srore near my house that carries Adam Again's Homeboys, and I plan on buying it this weekend.

    I'm glad you like the list.

    Transylvania Twist (spoof with Robert Vaughn)
    Dracula, Dead and Loving It (Leslie Nielsen)
    Sundown: The Vampire in Retreat

    PS: Read the book Vampire$ by John Steakly. Much, much better. I think the movie was the worst rendition of any book I've ever seen. (Armor, by the same author, was excellent too).

  • 5 Tom Hanks Movies the World would be better off without   15 years 11 weeks ago

    Jen, Welcome to the unofficial "Gump Sucks Club"..GSC for short. You are the third Member, a friend of mine is number 2. I think the membership can only grow once people realize there are others out there who have good taste and are not afraid to say what a horrid flick it really is...I always think of it like the Emporor has No Clothes.

    I have had some of my most memorable fights about this movie.

  • THE MOVIE GAME   15 years 11 weeks ago

    Thanks. I actually thought of that movie with Las Vegas in the title first, but I can't think of the whole title.

  • THE MOVIE GAME   15 years 11 weeks ago

    Robert Redford, I think. What happens if I get it wrong?

  • THE MOVIE GAME   15 years 11 weeks ago

    Once again, very sorry. Dillman was in "A Rage to Live."

  • 0002: The 12 Greatest Pre-20th Century Novelists   15 years 11 weeks ago

    lbangs, maybe this would be too difficult to do, but if you had to recommend one novel by each author, what would it be?

  • 0004: My Favorite Translations of Greek Classics   15 years 11 weeks ago

    Thanks for this list, lbangs. I was actually considering reading some of these. I read some in college, but it's been a while and I've forgotten most everything about them (even the basic plot, in most cases). I will definitely take your suggestions and get the Chapman and Roche translations. :)

  • 0001: My Favorite Television Programs   15 years 11 weeks ago

    Thanks, Jimmy. I don't find too many people who actually watched China Beach. Man, I love that show. I remember being devastated when Nurse Cherry died. Remember that great episode?

    I also really loved how the last season shifted back in forth in time between Nam, the present, and all points in between.

    One of my required watchings in high school.

    Shalom, y'all!

  • Favorite Movie Involving Killer Marine Life   15 years 11 weeks ago

    Is this really even a competition? :)

    Shalom, y'all!

    L. Bangs (who's going to take a wild stab, to go out on a limb, and to guess that Jaws will be the winner. Call me crazy...)

  • What should I read next?   15 years 11 weeks ago

    Because I went through and changed the way I was doing italics to fix the ability to search on them and apparently doing that doubled everything up! (Thanks for reminding me, I forgot to mail Jim about it).

  • Ok I tried to do 5 good Dan Aykroyd films   15 years 11 weeks ago

    "Chaplin". He's not in the movie all that much but it's great. A damn sight better than The House of Mirth. And yes, keep "Sneakers". It's a fine fine film.
    Someone did an Esquire article recently where they recounted how they were forced to watch all of Akroyd's movies. It was quite funny. Although I got mad at him for complaining about it. I mean, hello, I'll take that job any day! It beats waitressing.

  • A Film (or two) for Every State   15 years 11 weeks ago

    For New Mexico, The Milagro Beanfield War. I just moved to New Mexico and, while I haven't seen this film yet, people have told us that it gives a very good description of the interaction between all of the cultures here (Native, Spanish and Anglo).

  • What should I read next?   15 years 11 weeks ago

    Kristin, why does almost everything on your list have 2 entries in the results?

  • GAME0004: Name the Movie (Weird Actor Pairings)   15 years 11 weeks ago

    009 is "Mallrats" Great list!

  • GE. Genre Movies: Horror: Good and Bad Vampire Movies   15 years 11 weeks ago

    Love the list. See "Nosferatu" '22 in a double feature with "Shadow of the Vampire" and you won't be disappointed. Judging by those you liked versus didn't I think you will really enjoy these two.

  • evil songs/lyrics to have stuck in one's head   15 years 11 weeks ago

    Lately I'm getting annoyed again by that "Charlie's Angels" song by Destiny's Child. "Tell me how your Angels get down like that!" I hate that line. I hate all the lines. They sound so lame. And they get stuck in my head.

    Whoops. Never mind.
