I like all three of these. The Russia House is a beautiful adaptation of a John leCarre spy novel with some fine acting from Sean Connery and Michelle Pfeiffer and a fantastic jazz soundtrack.

What can I say about The Commitments that hasn't been said a hundred time already? If you haven't seen it, it is just a rollicking good time with a kick-a** soundtrack of fantastic hits.

And I have a soft spot for the fun trucker film, Black Dog ("Have you seen it? Have you seen the black dog?" LOL) with Patrick Swayze and M.L. Aday a/k/a Meat Loaf.

You can't go wrong with any of these!

I really like Ferrara's take on Invasion of the Body Snatchers. It's creepy and very underrated. I find it fascinating that the original is a masterpiece, the 1978 remake is suprisingly excellent, and the 1993 version is quite good too. You have three different takes on the same plot, all with excellent results. (Of course, the less said about the fourth version, 2007's The Invasion, the better. [Smile] )

"Where you gonna go? Where you gonna run? Where you gonna hide?" Meg Tilly's line reading of that from Ferrara's version is perfect and priceless, completely sums up the film.

Though I feel 1978's IOTBS (with Donald Sutherland & Leonard Nimoy) is the best version of this film, I will say that 1993's version is excellent as well - and is my second favorite version.

Though the 1950's original film is classic, I don't find it as effective as the '78 or '93 versions.

I thought the 2007 version was just O.K. - I guess I had seen the story so many times by that point that the plotline(s) had lost their ability to shock.

At some point, it would be interesting to sit down and see all four versions back to back, and compare them all.
