    Thanks for the comments, dgeiser1. I'll have to check him out, as I had his novel The Extremes on my wish list.

    But, I think my previous comment was wrong. I think there must be two creators out there going by Christopher Priest, as I found two different homepages for two different Preists...

    One other thing to consider too, as suggested by Jim, is if we want a separate user name (lbc maybe) that has it's own password and that owns these lists, so that multiple people could work on them. Good or bad idea?

    Nice thought, and something I've been wanting to get, but amazon's apparently got a bug that won't let me put it in my shopping cart!

    buber, to tell you the truth i really enjoyed this book. so much that i've been culling ebay for a few more titles to read! i think christopher priest has been around since the early 70s so he's not a young guy. i'm suprised he's not more popular.

  • Movie Club (aka Movie Discussion Group) Anyone!   15 years 17 weeks ago

    Yeah..every two weeks. I'm unclear as to where you want us to see these. Movie rentals or theatrical Releases? And also, I think we should really get going on this Dan. Lets do it. Video or theatre?

  • Another Character Game-Newer Films   15 years 17 weeks ago

    #38 is Michael Imperioli from Goodfellas. I just saw him on the tube or I never would have guessed this.

  • 0002. 10 (or more) Over-Rated Films   15 years 17 weeks ago

    Shakespeare In Love and West Side Story both had no business winning best picture. Neither did Titanic for that matter. The rest of these I could put up a pretty good argument for. I would but none of those films are named One Flew Over The Cuckko's Nest, Dr. Strangelove, Last Tango In Paris, The Godfather's part I and II, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Midnight Cowboy, Taxi Driver, Apocalypse Now, The Deer Hunter, or The Man Who Fell To Earth. So, I'm not gonna debate this. Maybe some of these movies recieved too much praise and exposure, however I dont think that should retract from their strong points. I didn't see you say you hated any of these films Les, so I don't know why I'm rambling on and on and on and on......

    Much love,
