Xanadu- Olivia Newton John

Senseless plot, Olivia's natural beauty, set in Sunny Califirnia. Pure eye candy, great way to throw one's mind out of gear....

First of all, my goodness you have a tricky username  

Judging by your choice of movies, do you like Jim Carrey films?

I know I do.

Yeah, I like Jim Carrey. A lot of people didnt like Cable Guy but I loved it. I also like Adam Sandler, I didnt like the Waterboy or Big Daddy that much, I thought he was best in the Wedding Singer.

Hi Tzvika.

I didn't know this was the third movie. I thought they only had one at present. Oh well.  

I can't say that I'm looking to much forward to it, cuz I'm not too involved in LOTR. But my cousin is.

When is the third film due? Around new-year?

I have quite a few. Erin Brokovich, all the Halloween movies (except for Halloween 3 which made the rest of the Halloween movies look bad, not to mention it had nothing to do with any of the other ones) Sphere, Brokedown Palace, Red Corner, Virus, Supernova, Stigmata. Thats about all I can think of right now.

I think that the best film I've seen is the 1985 version of "The Elephant Man" (I don't mind admitting that it's the only film that's made me cry since I passed 10!)

On a happier note I think that "The Life of Brian" & "There's Something About Mary" are hellarious.

I do like "Saving Private Ryan" but in my opinion, it's waaaayyyy too long!

Mine would have to be (in no real order):

Clerks
Mallrats
South Park: bigger, longer, and uncut
Office Space
Transformers the Movie (nessesary for all kids of the 80's)
Oasis : There and Then

Those are the movies that I have liked for quite a long time, so they'll probably stay up there in the list.

Tbar220, does LOTR mean Lord Of The Rings? My dad has the book trilogy-The Return of the King, The Two Towers, and the Fellowship of the Ring. Then he has the movie 'Hobbit' and an illustrated hardback book of Hobbit.

I don't get what people see in the Farly Brother films. Personally I think their films are not very good. Something about Mary wasn't all that funny

I guess you have to have a certain sense of humor to like certain things. For instance a lot of people like Tom Green (like me) and some people cant stand him. I love Farrely brother's movies.
