I know most everyone hates Waterworld. I don't mind Waterword, but question why Costner chose a Mad Max style movie. My dog is The Postman. If nothing else is on I'll stop at Waterworld. If the only movie on is The Postman it's off to youtube.

The Postman was just okay...they messed with the story too much. It's one of my favorite end-of-the-world books.

Waterworld, I like it too...D. Hopper was over the top...fantastic!

That's because the movie moves along at a quicker pace than most live sports! I mean how many times does that batter need to readjust everything!

We've watched a bunch of sports movies here...much to Himself's chagrin. But he humors me, then watches what he wants to alone. I suppose with three TVs with DVD playability we could watch separately, but he lets me enjoy the "big screen" experience. Must admit though, both of us thoroughly enjoyed "The Rookie" and "Miracle on Ice".

Is this what they refer to as a loaded question?

The last movie I saw was Kon-Tiki.... The 2013 Oscar nominated submission for movie of the year from Norway...

A low budget movie that was high on visuals and also had a good amount of suspense.

I say it is a must see movie..
