Just watched The Weatherman on DVD it was alright but nothing to write home about.

I rewatched the original live action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie yesterday and that is one movie that has not held up well over the years (but my 5 year old loved it)

I watched Grandma's Boy today because several boneheads at work kept telling me I had to see it.

Surprisingly, score one for the boneheads. It was a pretty damn funny movie.
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

I just watched Clerks 2. I would say it was the least funny of the series but still worth a rent

I tipped over my coffee and melted my chocolate image of Budha?

Have just watched Swashbuckler (1976), which is billed as "The grandest pirate movie ever."

I don't know that I would go that far, but it does have James Earl Jones as a pirate. As a buff pirate. As a buff bearded pirate. He looks like a cross between Mr. T and Levar Burton. But with more class. And very curly chest hair.

I'll never be able to look at Darth Vader the same way again.

Did that film have the great actor 'Robert Shaw' in it? I met him once...before he got eaten by the shark in 'Jaws'.

Nick

Postby black bart » Mon Sep 17, 2007 4:38 pm

That's an unlikely name for a Pirate...sounds more like an FBI agent! No hang on...it's growing on me...Cap'n Nick Debrett...

My bad. Nick Debrett was played by James Earl Jone. Robert Shaw played Red Ned Lynch.

"the Princess Bride"

A lot different than the book, but I liked it just as much.
