Yeah, christopher Walken is ok, except for that whole Natalie Wood thing...which I happen to believe. But hey, minor details.

Are you talking about her death? Wasn't Robert Wagner accused of her murder?

Walken and Wagner were the only two others on the boat. Curious, that she happened to just fall off the boat and drown, especially since she was terrified of water. plus, in the dead of night w/ no people around, I'm sure someone woulda heard somthing. I did a whole report on this last year.

Scary, very scary. If its true, I guess Walken is kind of like his character in "At Close Range." [Frown]

True that Eddie! Oh, I was recently watching Sleepy Hollow(as Halloween approaches) and realised that Walken is the headless Horseman. But u kno what? There was no credit for his character or him. huh???

The Sure Thing
A Cusack flick that takes a backseat to his others in most eyes but I still love it.

My old acting coach was in a fillm with Walken back in the late 80s. He aside from him smoking pot in his trailer at before every scene, he was one of the nicest people he'd ever met. He gave my coach lots of advice and was very kind.

The whole Natalie Wood thing will always be a mystery. Anyone famous that dies of other than natural causes will always have that cloud of mystery. People will always wonder if it was an accident or if he/she was really murdered. Think Marilyn Monroe, Elvis and the list goes on.....

Very true Ali, and tho I don't think Elvis was murdered, I'm not entirely convinced that Monroe overdosed. My intuition points straight to the Kennedys. Call me crazy!

Ok, I love, love, LOVE "The Night Before" (1988) with Keanu Reeves and Lori Loughlin. They've finally started playing it on cable again and I can't stop myself from watching it every time I come across it. It's just so enticingly corny. It's one of those movies that I have all the lines memorized. Keanu Reeves plays a great dork - Winston Connelly. Lori Loughlin is the supreme bit*hy popular cheerleader - Tara Mitchell. AND the soundtrack is by George Clinton. [Smile] Unfortunately, a lot of people haven't seen it, much less heard of it.

I have to second "Once Bitten". I can't even begin to count the number of times I've seen this one. It was in the after school habitual viewing rotation when I was much younger. It seems though that everyone knows about this film since Jim Carrey is such a HUGE star now. I NEVER would have guessed in a million years.

Also, I really love "Seven Minutes In Heaven" with Maddie Corman, Jennifer Connelly and Byron Thames. Even though it's about 15 year olds, it really spoke to me when I was 13. It's a bit uneven but the emotions felt very relevant to a new adolescent. No one EVER talks about this one.

The night before. I love that movie. I watched it around the time it came out, and recently purchased it. A lot funny scenes in it. The bartender who spikes his drink was actually a wrestler called Zeus in the WWF briefly. I love George Clinton in the soundtrack too.

Anyone here like Plain Clothes (1988)? An underrated little comedy that I found was fun.
