Re: Going to Japan - sightseeing ideas? Food?

Make sure you see the giant Buddha statue in Nara. It's in a temple in the park where the deer are. It's amazing.

Re: Why Will Smith turned down Neo in The Matrix 1999

I don't care WHY Will Smith turned it down, I'm just glad he did. I love Keanu in the role. I would not have loved Smith.

When I went to see the 5th James Bond film, YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE, at a neighborhood theater during its initial release (1967), the children's section was packed. I was sitting with my sister. And when...

Re: RIP: Albert Finney - Dead at 82

Someone give Ridley Scott a math lesson. THE DUELLISTS (1977) was made 17 years, not 30 years, after SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY MORNING (1960).

Re: The Mark Dacascos appreciation thread

I was about to say he was also in SHOWDOWN IN LITTLE TOKYO and RAPID FIRE, but then I remembered...no, he wasn't. That was Brandon Lee. Ooops! I'm now wondering if casting directors had this problem.

Re: The Departed - review thread

I haven't seen THE DEPARTED since its theatrical release. I didn't like it, but I don't remember why. Maybe just my antipathy towards DiCaprio, whom I've hated in every Scorsese movie. (But I thought...

I'm pretty sure the first movie I saw him in was Roger Corman's X- THE MAN WITH THE X-RAY EYES (1963) and then a few years later in Corman's THE ST. VALENTINE'S DAY MASSACRE (1967). What an...
