My favorite Nic Cage movie is still "Valley Girl"

I seem to have done better than you in the movie department lately. Last night I woke up at some ungodly hour, could not get back to sleep and surfed the channels. What I came up with was a piece of fine acting from some years ago: In The Heat of the Night. Certainly one heck of a who dunnit, not one you would figure out easily with all the sidetracking as to the suspects. Also extremely well acted. I guess it is also ojne of the first big movies to breach the whole racial prejudice thing, not that I care one way or the other about it being such, but it sure was powerful in its depiction of racism in the south, and in some regards it portrayed racism from both sides of the fence.

Great movie, no big special effects, so it depended all on a good plot and excellent acting to turn out that way.

All the best,
Glenn B

The Avengers remake is sacrilegious to be sure...

and I am a fan of Miss Uma, even though she was married to that HUGE Douchebag Ethan Hawke.

Dangerous Liasons a good flick, but Henry and June better...

I love the old Avengers... the new one... sucks eggs. Would have warned you if I had known you were going to watch it.

Dude, Uma! Yowza!

I like Uma, but she's got balls to touch Dame Rigg's Mrs. Peel. It's just one of those roles that should never be reprised.

You were only 16 when you saw Dangerous Liasons? Good Grief. Some days you make me feel so old... Gah!

I couldn't asgree more - The Weatherman was a complete waste of time. ANd now I know to avoid The Avengers as well. Thanks for that!

The Weatherman was rented, PPV, at my behest way back when. It sucked. We didn't finish it.

Give "John From Cincinnati" a look-see. Oddly bizarre, in a surfing movie kinda way.
