The director's cut of Apocalypse Now is a pretty firkin good film. I watched The Bridge on the River Kwai as wee lad and found it riveting. Still good as an adult when I saw it remastered in HD.

Its a tough call. And a sensitive subject. Whats your top three. I do love Kelly's Heros.

 Love both of these. About once a month I get that damn "Bridge on the River Kwai" song stuck in my freakin' head a go around whistling it all day. Drives Ms. Tubercle up the wall. ;D

Which leads me to the the John Tuturro. I've always considered him more of a serious type of actor. His acting in Miller's Crossing was amazing. He's shown up in several of Sandler's movies and not much else...

His character Jesus, in The Big Lebowski, is my favorite by far!

Zardoz for weird scifi. Bladerunner is definitely one of the fave. In the top ten- director's cut again...

Which got me thinking about Mad Max. Wow! Not a big budget not particularly well made. And Mel Gibson- fresh faced still with his puppy fat. Who would have thought he would turn out to be a crazy fokker.

Tin Burton's remake of Planet of the Apes was filmed out on the Kilauea lava flows here on Hawaii Island.  Pretty cool being there when dey did dat!

I think he should have been shot for making that piece of crap remake. When I heard he was doing it I thought he would move the story closer to the book.

Hey Euge, have you watched Dead Man on you tube yet. Its free.

Now I'm doing it.

Hitler has only got one brass ball
the other- is in the Albert hall.
His mother- that dirty bugger
bit it off when he was just small...

My 11 year old son brought this version of the BOTRK song home from school when he was 7:

Comet, will turn your white teeth green,
Comet, will make you use Listerine.
Comet, will make you vomit,
So buy some Comet and vomit today!

The big qustion is, how did he know music from a 50 year old movie that he's never seen?
