After watching it, I have decided to boycott all Charleton Heston films. No Ben-Hur, no Soylent Green, no Planet of the Apes, no Nine Commandments (the Thou Shalt Not Kill thing has been conveniently omitted for his sake)...fucking gun-toting racist slimeball. Sorry about my language.

Oh yeah, and that quote was from Muriel's Wedding. I don't think Bowling for Columbine is a feel good movie although it might piss you off and make you think. Another feel good movie for everyone, Jackie Brown.

I'm all set for Christmas, because I just picked up It's a Wonderful Life on DVD. It was at Sogo.

Hamburger Hill was on tv a few nights ago. I would say that was one of the most depressing Vietnam movies ever made.

down by law - tom waits, john lurie and roberto benigni

"Why d'ya kill a man, Bob? The guy didn't like Walt Whitman?"

<frowns> "I never asked this man if he liked Walt Whitman."

Classic. First saw it in Saint Michel, Paris, with a Swedish chick named Maria in 1987. Cheap wine, the whole world just an extended thumb away, and a serious lesson in humanity.

Where did you find this movie? Looks like something I'd like to see.

My vote's for "Roman Holiday" with Audrey Hepburn; a classic worth watching. (In my case, again and again...)
