License to Kill/dvd
--Just wanted to do a Dalton Bond. I love Sanchez as a villain.

The Living Daylights/dvd
--Dalton's overall best IMO.

Wayne's World 1 and 2/dvd
--1>2 still. IMO, one of the few successful transitions of a SNL comedy sketch to the big screen.

Naked Gun , NG 2 1/2, NG 33 1/3 /dvd
--Still funny as hell. Basically a police version of Airplaine.

The Saint/dvd
--Not a bad movie and a interesting idea. Val Kilmer doing all those costumes and accents was kind of funny LOL.

RE: The movie thread
Just watched Mr. Jones and I highly recommend it. A good review,
This thriller of a movie tells the story of a true hero, Gareth Jones who risked his life to find the truth, negating the falsehoods sent out by New York Times journalist Walter Duranty about Joseph Stalin's collectivization dreams. Edward Norton's portrayal of the truth seeking journalist is excellent. His integrity in contrast to the , evil duplicitous Duranty who misleads his followers with fake news and eventually gets rewarded with the Pulitzer Prize is beautifully caught in the first segment of the film. The story progresses into the details of the horrific Holodomor and the intrigues of historical characters. Although a story of historical significance, it is presented as a mystery of twists and turns. Very well done.

Jones writing is the inspiration behind Orwell's Animal Farm.
