  • Actor's Best Roles   15 years 12 weeks ago

    You are right on about Fishburne he was stunning as Ike Turner though he was also very good in Boyz in the Hood. Freeman did a real nice job in making Lean on Me not an After-school special but he has done such great work all over the place. I actually saw him last night in Nurse Betty and he was the best part. I also loved Him in Seven but I would say Glory was his best Part.

    Crowe was great in the Insider but he carried LA confidential and that was a truly great movie.

    I remember Spacey in Wiseguy and you are right in saying that was some of his best acting. A geat show that sometimes gets forgotten.

  • canadian musicians i don't love   15 years 12 weeks ago

    What about Alannis?

  • great cover songs/remakes   15 years 12 weeks ago

    the pixies version of Head On and the wedding present's version of Waiting On The Guns and oh...siouxsie doing Dear Prudence is really good.

    How about Little Black Backpack-Stroke 9?

  • Movies on my "To Watch" List   15 years 12 weeks ago

    Interesting to see your movie list, as I have one of my own (sans descriptions) that I have been keeping in some form (currently Listology) for four years.

    Kieslowski's Three Colors trilogy ( Blue , White , and Red , in that order) are absolutely astounding. It's hard to believe you watched Blue and were bored, especially if you pay attention to the symbolism.

    Also, Wings of Desire is amazing. Make sure you're ready and willing to be able to read subtitles for a while, because of its serenity and subtleness, it's a very easy movie to fall asleep to. It's one of the best movies I've seen, though! Be sure to add its sequel, Faraway, So Close!

    Make sure you watch Manon of the Spring (Manon des Sources) after Jean de Florette , as this is its sequel. Good set of movies, though. I suggest watching them both in the same week.

  • books I started but haven't managed to finish   15 years 12 weeks ago

    I started a similar list a while back. I advise thinking back to your assigned reading in college for more entries.

  • Adam Again - The Greatest Rock Artist of the 90s   15 years 12 weeks ago

    Good thing Jim used the word obscure as the test search on the news page, so I noticed this article! I've been a fan of Adam Again since a friend first played Dig for me, which I immedately bought on cassette.

    Coincidentally, you can easily pick up an in-print AA album titled "Worldwide Favourites" , kind of a best-of album. As you'd expect with any such album, there are songs you wish had been included, but there are a few good songs, like Worldwide, Dig, River on Fire, and others--but not No Regrets. You can see a full track listing here.

    Also, just as a side note: Don't get the new Daniel Amos compilation, as that doesn't do the band justice, unfortunately.

  • Great Performances in Film by Musicians   15 years 12 weeks ago

    Yeah, Yoakam was good. I'll add him. It was Iced Tea in Surviving The Game not Ice Cube.

  • Great Performances in Film by Musicians   15 years 12 weeks ago

    May I suggest Dwight Yoakam in Sling Blade. Also, I think Ice Cube was really cool in Surviving the Game.

  • ALL MIXED UP/ Decipher these movie titles   15 years 12 weeks ago

    12. Repulsion

  • Great Performances in Film by Musicians   15 years 12 weeks ago

    Yeah, especially Copycat. Thanks for that one Min.

  • ALL MIXED UP/ Decipher these movie titles   15 years 12 weeks ago

    Yes dearest Min, you are correct.

  • ALL MIXED UP/ Decipher these movie titles   15 years 12 weeks ago

    Thats pretty funny bro'.

  • Great Performances in Film by Musicians   15 years 12 weeks ago

    I thought Harry Connick Jr. did a great job in both Copycat and Hope Floats.

  • ALL MIXED UP/ Decipher these movie titles   15 years 12 weeks ago

    15. Johns?
    16. Platoon

  • Avoid if You're Pregnant   15 years 12 weeks ago

    Species and Species II should be on this list. I actually saw Species II while I was pregnant. It irritated me more than anything. The "father" putting all his "children" in a shed.

  • ALL MIXED UP/ Decipher these movie titles   15 years 12 weeks ago

    Maybe you, I and buber are caught in a mysterious parallel dimension. :-)

  • films i'm avoiding for one reason or another   15 years 12 weeks ago

    Continue to avoid Meet the Parents. I didn't laugh once. Booooooring. And I usually like Ben Stiller and Robert DeNiro.

  • Actor's Best Roles   15 years 12 weeks ago

    I forgot.
    Russell Crowe-The Insider

  • Actor's Best Roles   15 years 12 weeks ago

    Just my two cent opinions.

    Tom Cruise-Interview with a Vampire (The only performance of his that surprised me)

    Kevin Spacey-Wiseguy or The Usual Suspects (Wiseguy is a sentimental choice. I remember being about 12 or 13 and loving him on this show. I knew he would be a star.)

    Al Pacino-Dog Day Afternoon

    Micheal Douglas-Wall Street

    Should be added to the list
    Morgan Freeman-Lean on Me
    Laurance Fishbourne-What's love got to do with it

  • Rolling Stone's 100 Yrs 100 Maverick Movies 1-6-00   15 years 12 weeks ago

  • ALL MIXED UP/ Decipher these movie titles   15 years 12 weeks ago

    You are right Dan. Does anybody else know about this damn game?
