Was that a flop? I thought it did pretty well - oh, and its my favorite of the series

OT, the last 2 movies my father-in-law has seen at the theatre are Vegas Vacation and The Godfather.

I guess you and I have the same problem. I loved both TLR and Alice.

Shawshank Redemption is my all time favorite movie...just love it.

I also love White Squall (1996) with Jeff Bridges and a very young Jeremy Sisto, Ryan Phillipe, etc. Such a great coming of age movie based on a true story. Whenever I mention it no one has ever heard of it.

Wasn't The Wizard of Oz (the original) a box office flop?

isn't it amazing how when you go to watch old movies or TV shows that you used to love how corny and tacky they can be now.

I saw White Squall. It was good, but I was 16. Didn't understand the greatness of it. I just saw cute boys.

That's so true. I LOVED Hogans Heroes when I was a kid. Caught an episode a few years ago, and it was just awful. Gilligans Island didn't age well for me, either.

Waterworld I thought was very interesting, although I don't think it was technically a flop, it got labeled as a flop, but I don't think Universal would have made an attraction out of it if it was a total flop, I just think it had a huge budget and it didn't make a ton of money, I think at the time it was a record budget.

DH loves Waterworld and The Postman. I love White Chicks too. I always crack up when I hear that song on the radio... can't remember the name... its the one they sing in the convertible.

Im probably forgetting some. I still haven't forgiven Hollywood for Sahara though.
We love The 13th warrior. Have it on DVD. And sorry, but we love Sahara as well.

One of the best lines of the movie is when Sigourney Weaver's characte rGwen DeMarco says, "Whoever wrote this episode should DIE."
Once again, introduced the kids to this and they both love it. And it is a very quotable movie.
