    Dude was always more "energy" than "funny" and now he's neither. Take the first sitcom offer you get Adam.

    Everytime I hit WMs I stop by that $5 DVD bin/rack. I've picked up a lot of solid older movies for $5. I just bought Amadeus.

    We were at work the other day taling about comedies and Up In Smoke entered the conversation. Found it at WMs on the cheap.

    As far as movies that disappoint.....

    There have been a lot that were either nominated for, or won, Oscars where I couldn't see what the hype was all about - Titanic, English Patient, Out Of Africa, are examples.

    I completely agree. I hear people brag on this guy all the time and I have yet to see anything by him I've liked.

    Has anyone seen his latest? Death Proof.

    Other then Platoon, I've never been enamored with Oliver Stone either.

    I was going to mention Out of Africa. If Dr. Zhivago is white noise, OOA is at least summer storm.
