Even after all these years you still manage to shock me…

2. Karyn, sshhhh…we were never to talk about that fateful night again, at least not in mixed company. Eric, you really have never seen a movie in theater more than once. The hell you say.

4. See “Babel”…that might change your mind about Mr. Pitt. And I mean might.

9. Surprised you have never seen “La Dolce Vita.” “LDV” could also be used to answer number 15.

11. No surprises there…I could see those two coming a mile away.

16. I absolutely and without reservation refuse to see “Jesus Camp.” Never, ever, never. I find that sort of doc nothing more than exploitive and manipulative propaganda. But I find it funny as hell that you put it under the category of “scariest movie.”

18. “Jerry McGuire.” On first viewing I liked it. Years go by and I saw it again last year and made the horrifying realization that 99% of that movie is worse than any Mexican soap opera could ever hope to be. WAY to much melodrama…especially with the performance Cuba Gooding Jr. gives. Almost as bad as his performance in “Outbreak.”

19. “Friday the 13th: Part Five” just for the hilariously bad acting and dialogue. To this day, the only movie I can think of that has the word “dog dick” in the script.

Matt Damon? I think you meant Matt Dillon.

Eric said...

Actually, I think Matt Damon is great.

Sorry. Didn't mean to sound like an asshat. I was just kidding around. I actually agree with you here. I was just kinda suprised that you named him under that catagory. Caught me a bit off-guard. Of all the movies that you've seen and your extensive insight into film and acting, Matt Damon was one of those "really?" moments for me. That's all.

As Whitman said, "I contain multitudes."

I think that meant he was constipated.
