Fellini watched = 0.  :-[

(my secret shame!)

It should not be shameful that you get to see some great films for the first time.

Well, Sam Jackson IS the police. You gotta do what he say.

CG?!??

Actually I hadn't even thought about that performance. Thank you for bring it up. If I even get around to making a list I'm likely to just go through everyone's list & my top 100, take all the performances I like, mix them up and post a bunch of pretty pictures broken up with meaningless words.

Dave, I loved seeing Michael Douglas on there.  Love that film.  "what, I'm the bad guy?!"  Cool to see so many on your list that we share.  We should hang out.  What's half way between Portland and Melbourne?  Midway Island.  They got a movie theater there? (forgive me if that's not where you're from)
