I thought it was pretty cool. The moment of shock when Tom Petty appears, as himself, is pretty amusing.

I don't know why either, it's a good story. Of course, the book kicked far more ass IMHO, but the movie was fine as far as I'm concerned Just a little long for some people, I guess.

Who the fuck would be inspired by a mailman? "Look it's a mailman, let's feed him and follow his holy word!"

The new one with Costner? r0x0rish film. Anyone who says otherwise needs to be shot into space aboard a small capsule. With Kathie Lee for a cellmate.

In a word ...


I think he got a bit full of himself, and people dissed him for that.

However, I actually *liked* Waterworld ... it may have been a little slow, but most movies move too fast, and there are times when it's nice to relax a little and understand a movie as it goes along ...

okay. maybe it's just me, but i saw this on christmas day with an egg nogged up rowdy bunch way back in ...eh...96? and it was horrible! maybe it's just because costner takes himself way too seriously, or maybe it was the war camp led by the copier machine guy. very shogun. but not. 'cause it was lame.

anyway, that's how memory serves, and that may not be all that reliable...

hi. i'm going to do my homework now. i promise. ;-P

Re: ahhhh?

yeah, that's about accurate.... but i enjoyed it because the idea was cool.... civilization going under because of war, and losing all our technology.

sounds fun. ;)
