Quiz Show and Summer of Sam

I would like to pick these two up as part of Best Buy's 3/20 this week but have never seen them. I really like Spike's later films and I am a huge John Turturro fan.


How are both these movies? and are they worth the price?

Quiz Show is a fantastic film. Summer of Sam has its moments including a scene where Adrien Brody rocks out to The Who. But other than that I think I'd pass. Summer of Sam had probably one of the coolest trailers ever and the movie never lived up to it.

Quiz Show is a great movie. Summer of Sam is worth seeing and probably worth the price of the DVD deal.

I like Quiz Show, it's rewatchability probably depends on your ability to tolerate Rob Morrow's atrocious NE accent.

They're pretty much interchangable. If you've seen one film, you've seen the other.

Quiz Show is excelllent, although I believe it's still cheaper at DDD at their regular price, 6.30 I think. I got mine for 5.04 during a 20% sale.

I haven't seen SOS since VHS, but it's a really good movie. I may be picking this up myself if I can only find 2 others in the list I want.

Quiz Show is terrific and definitely worth the price. Summer of Sam is a piece of shit. Skip that one.
