Nowadays I don't waste time on films that I don't think will interest me. Some movies are missing, for instance where is "The Color Purple" and "A Soldier's Story"? It has been recommended that I see "Office Space" so I will find the time to check that one out.

OK...the next time you're at Blockbuster you should rent: Office Space (of course), Schindler's List, and The Naked Gun. Schindler's List is so well made - even though it is somewhat depressing. The fact that it's based on a true story makes it unbelievably moving.

Come on, you know you saw The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Seriously, as did Mama PJ, I would also recommend Office Space and the Naked Gun. The Naked Gun does come with a warning though. If you thought Airplane was funny, check out The Naked Gun. Otherwise, don't bother.

Hmm. I've only seen thirty-seven of these movies. I've been watching more movies made before 1980.

Mama PJ,

I can't fool with "Schindler's List". I can't handle the unspeakable atrocities that film deals with. I will check out Office Space though.

Malcolm,

I liked "Airplane" so I will probably give "Naked Gun" a try.

AMS, Thanks for the info.

X,

I like the real classics as well.

A little off topic, Guys... I have a question. Two days ago I trapped on this site:
[url=http://www.rivalspot.com]Rivalspot.com - Wii Live Tournaments[/url]
They say you can play online Nhl2k game tournaments on any console for cash... had anyone tried that before? Looks like a cool idea...
Are there any other sites where you can play sports games for real moneys? I Googled and found only Bringit.com and Worldgaming.com but it looks these guys don't specialize in sport gamez. Any suggestions?
