* finally saw it

Speaking as someone who owns "Lock, Stock and 2SB" on DVD (I love the movie), I have to say I was very disappointed with Snatch. It just didn't have whatever made the first one great. It had it's moments. The way the Gypsies (Brad Pitt) spoke was funny. But I was even bored during parts of it. There were no likeable characters to root for as opposed to Lock.

I've seen all the other movies on your list except Pecker and AI and I'd say they're all definitely worth a rental. If i had to pick one, I'd say I liked Traffic the most.

Thanks for the heads-up. It's funny, i just borrowed the DVD of Snatch from a friend today, and will try and get to it in the next couple of nights. From the previews, i certainly expected the flashiness and irreverence of "Lock, Stock and 2SB". I've had mixed reviews from friends. We'll see.

Wow, I feel completely different about Lock, Stock, and Snatch. To me Snatch had a great story and kept me engrossed the whole time. I couldn't wait to see what happened next. It seemed more complete. Whereas Lock, Stock seemed like a very amateurish, although original, film which showed the potential of Guy Ritchie. In Snatch he finally got to deliver.

I just watched O Brother, Where Art Thou? for the third time. I liked it quite a bit the first time, and I've liked it better with each subsequent viewing.

I keep hearing how good it is, and how much people think i will like it, that's why i can't belive i haven't seen it. And it's the Coen brothers!

Anyway I can convince you to not put yourself in a world of Planet of the Apes pain?

Well, as much as i appreciate your trying to spare me the pain of this movie, and as much as much as i might agree with you afterwards, i feel almost as though i have to see it. Maybe i'm just a cinema sadist, but i have to witness the carnage for myself.

Okay, as long as you come on back and document how painful it was, I guess I can live with that. :-)
