I agree with Lisa on everything except "Walk the Line". It was a total yawner. It's the same old story revisited without much energy. We all know the "Rockstar" story of gaining fame, getting high, getting off drugs etc. This movie added nothing at all to the same old tired story (true or not). It had no energy at all. The music was decent, the rest was. Well, shit. Sorry Lisa, for once...bad choice...(she usually chooses very well were films are concerned).



Yeah, Martin is right about "Walk the Line." Great acting, storyline not so much.

Party Girl is one of my favorite movies of all time. I love Parker Posey, she's hysterical.

Sarah aka "Mrs. Robinson"

I LOVE "Waiting For Guffman". I have sat down many times to watch this movie with friends and to watch their reaction to this movie supports Lisa's statement, "either you "get" it or you don't. But you did omit "This Is Spinal Tap", another hilarious Christopher Guest movie. (I love the cold sore scene!)

  • John Grisham: The Innocent Man
    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)

  • Jack Olsen: Charmer
    Riveting true crime by a master. (****)
